Conation

Kurt Philip Behm

Conation

 

Have you tilted the axis

on a new tomorrow

Have you changed with intention

— the direction of time

 

(The New Room: February, 2024)

 

 

 

Round Peg — Square Holes

 

The poetry of mathematics

— oxymoronic at best

 

(Dreamsleep: February, 2024)

 

 

 

 

 

Robert The Bruce

 

War is won

before the first battle fought

Willful intention

the enemy caught

 

Decision a crossbow

empowered by choice

The spirit retracting

— a conquering voice

 

(Stonehenge: March, 1987)

 

 

Apate

 

Captive of emotion

— prisoner of deceit

 

(Dreamsleep: February, 2024)

 

 

Crossing Over

 

Attending his own funeral

no tears were exchanged

No grieving or mourning

— but memory remained

 

(Dreamsleep: February, 2024)

 

In Memoriam

 

People won’t remember you

because of your money

The human spirit bereft

by your dollars in vain

History won’t revere you

because of your tokens

Your legacy built upon

— prescience ordained

 

(Dreamsleep: February, 2024)

 

 

 

Blood Trail

 

Don’t get sucked into choosing

both sides are bad

The Left or the Right

their massages sad

 

The Right tries to promise

what Leftist’s sublate

Two sides to a trap

— where lies are the bait

 

(Dreamsleep: February, 2024)

 

 

“What Simple Folk Do …”

 

Only inside ordinary things

is the extraordinary released

Baptized new day after day

eternity unleashed

 

Only by embracing what’s common amongst us

as Arthur knew so well

Can we move on to where it starts

beyond heaven — beyond hell

 

(Memories Of Camelot: February, 2024)

 

 

Making Our Bed

 

The silence of death

lives in the future

Sleeping with memories

— of yesterday’s past

 

(Dreamsleep: February, 2024)
