Spoken Word

In front of a mirror once more

Breathing in
No hesitation
Open eyes lights blinding
It’s time, no need for invitation
Practice over now time to give
Soon its over alone and now dismissed
Empty room
Glasses clinking nearby sounds
Alone now just want home now
The list ahead is long
Heading to a new town
Another city
A full room hall space
Like a repeat of yesterday
But nothing, no day is ever the same
Random encounters
Random names
Shared smiles in photographs
The instant gone once turned away
Sleep is luxury
Of that so few successes
Arrival
In front of a mirror once more
Getting ready
Splendid dressed
With arranged tresses
Repeat. Pause. Repeat
Rest
A day for nothing
No plane no train no car no wheels
Awaken same place fell asleep in
Without jolts brakes turns constant moving
No snores laughing banging
A different feeling
Simple pleasures
Clean linen hot bath
The indulgence of peaceful dreaming
Walking the streets without destination
Curiosity inspiring direction
Stopping here then there
Choosing somewhere with strategic seating
Observing strangers as they pass
Savouring the moments of freedom
Never lasting time to leave approaching too fast
Few aware of what we speak
Readying the mind
Preparing the hands
The drug performance the ecstasy
Stepping out always in motion
Mind body never still
Always in flow harmonious devotion
A life spent in support
Nothing that can be taught
Only learned through dedication
Survival of life on the road
Music the salvation
