One Poet’s Paradox – Rick Stephen

30
May

One Poet’s Paradox

I put words to paper
in relentless attempts
to persuade you
I am no fraud

But how can I
sway you when
I fail to convince
even myself?

Endless words
penned countless times
to prove that which I
can’t accept myself.

A beautiful Gazania blossom glows when backlit by the sun. A sure sign of spring around these parts, Gazania blossoms are everywhere thanks to a relatively wet winter courtesy of El Niño.

Thoughts Upon My Bed by Rick Stephen

Thoughts Upon My Bed

 

I wonder

Has the night always been so deep
and dark?

In my youth, it seemed
much less so

When twilight thoughts upon my pillow drifted on calm breezes
into serene dreams

And always returned with morning’s wind
and the rising sun.

Now, tempest tossed, they are driven far, far away, lost
in night’s inky blackness

Ships receding, then slipping over unknown horizons,
never to return

So tell me

Has the night always been so deep
and dark or

just that my mind has become
much more so?
