Wonder

Poem By Paul Brookes

Wonder
wonder is,
oh yes wonder is,
oh yes wonder is everywhere.

there in every soul,
there in the world.
in a desert in a sea
in a flower in a bee.

there in a leaf
a stone and under it,
in a grain of sand,
in a star,

wonder near and wonder far.
all the wonder,
yes all the wonder in
all the wonder in the world
and yet most people walk around with their eyes closed
and I wonder why?

Enough

wrap up tight into a hedgehog ball
spikes, spikes, spikes.

Ludicrous Is Love

thin arc of bowed buttermilk moon shines like a sliver of cheese.

scudding silver sails of cloud elude capture
as the stars look down miffed and mysterious,

life graphs of ups and downs a chains of reason to capture man
to lose his very innocence
made mental madnesswith a circle of woven ice,
to freeze the fevered brain.

The Sacrifice

they burned books in the square
words winging heaven wards,
angels tears dried in the heat
scalding in the rage from below.

Musical Drips

rains incessant
all morning falls
skies fifty shades of grey
the gutters overflow, a Niagara
