Pretend.

Rest the weary; soul's defense

I lack in langour, no time to sense

 

To aid the weak with pain and song

give all the strong, the strong, the strong

 

Pace intellect, control defect... growing precession

yet indirect..

 

Light bright, tone right... falter halt and sprite delight

Kiss the commodo, walking, his tail flailing in spite 

 

Long beaches, desert sand, nothing which I comprehend

Space in between -- alone -- facing that music, that tone, that tone

 

What would you do if I gave you an eye?

To see, to fair, in wish and wear?

Wanton flight of the nautical night?

 

Peace to the earth, and peace to man

Why not relate, why not pretend.

The last lines threw a curveball. But I guess  I’ve become a social, political and emotional agitator rather than a poet. I’ve got a soap box but I’m going to tuck it away for a while and concentrate on beauty which you always manage to inspire. We are all in a classic struggle. May we all win
