Poetry in motion

(on the bus in Canberra Australia)

 

Grey green rain

Winter grass

surviving

Fog shrouding

Black Mountain

Softening the

harshness of

Telstra tower

Bare tree limbs

reach up

Edging the lake

Ride ending

Get off

Go on

 

Reading Gary Snyder

Grey shale roof

Mountain over village

A few lines

Others go nowhere

Awareness sharpened

By thought and travel

Can we all be poets

If we keep moving?

 

 

 

Pain of cars upon cars

taking up tree space

Metallic invaders

destroying people and plants

Square standing building

Windows in shadow

Books upon books inside

protected forever

Will someone read them?

Why write if not read?

Why paint if not seen?

Why breathe if not loved?

Watching

cars go by

So many people

encased in metal

Do they put it on

like a new outfit

Slip into something

that gives them a

different personality

a different way of being

Feeling self assured in my BMW

My Audi tells me who I am

Why sacrifice

being human

to get places faster

In a car we are

no one

non caring

non communicative

in motion

to nowhere
