Terror Firma

Poem By Will Philip

Any atheists? I heard the captain quip,
but no hands were raised on the sinking ship.
Hedging your bets, I heard you say, pray to the light on a darkening day.

Pray to the Lord I heard the captain say.
All believers how can that be, will he save you from the stormy sea?

It was then that the seafarers words seemed sound,
its easier to be an atheist when your earth bound.

Autumn

It is Autumn and the leaves, leave the tree's.
It is Autumn and the birds swarm, to somewhere warm.
It is Autumn, but you left me in the Spring.

Don't Water Me

I live on the atmosphere,
created by others.
Nourished somehow by life's curiosities,
contradictions & promise.

The Shortest Day

Shout out the lie, how can you say,24 hours in a day?
What about a birth just before midnight, or a death just afterwards.
It's absurd, when night takes daylights place does it darken reasons face,
when you say 24 hours in the shortest day.

The Withered Flower

What were you, as a bud
did you cause others to reminisce
on lost youth and growing old.
In full bloom did you turn heads

Locked Away

I have many feelings locked away, if I let them loose, whole share with me.
They're locked away, Locked away, Locked away.
If I laugh, will you laugh too, & share my warmth, I hope you do.
but until I trust,

Strike A Cord

in the jazz bar, their music portrays a picture, we all struggle to see, through the fog of our imagination.
Canoes are rare in cities, so our thoughts have to stretch all the way to the wilds of Canada & the torrents of water cascading over rocks & rapids, populated by those large leaf like boats for one, fighting to remain upright.

Which brings us back to the city, as many try their best to remain upright, in the torrent of humanity that struggles on a journey, to its destination.
