Position Vacant – Translator.   1 comment

Position Vacant – Translator.

What sounds wonderful in my mind somehow loses sense when translated to paper or voice. Remuneration for the position – unlimited satisfaction from helping the wprds pf tje ,omd ……

They seem to hve disappered

POW – Poetry Open Words – DO NOT TURN AWAY   Leave a comment

SYPHILIS, SYPHILIS, SYPHILIS he shouted and once again we knew that Cameron Logan was entertaining all with his poetry. In this instance the word syphilis was going into the Mater Hospital instead of coming out of it.

Another great night at The Little Prince Espresso with Poetry Open Words – this time all spoken outside on the steps in the beautiful night air. Competing with the traffic – I think we did a good job. Thank you to all who lit the night air with their voices.

A number of different poets honored the words of Bobbi Sykes, Samuel Wagan Watson, Rowan Donovan, Angel Kosch, Peter Rowe and Stefanie Petrik. Cameron intrigued by the title of “Portrait of an Orgy”.

Looking forward to more to come this year. Next event – 21 Feb 2013.

The Surgeon   1 comment

Hands scrubbed
Face masked
Skin pale
Scalpel sharp
.
One deep breathe
Calm the nerves
Steady the hand
Follow the curves
.
Slow moving scalpel
Clammy skin
Thick line of red
Bubbles from within
.
Hands of steel
No ordinary man
one life to save
if he can
.
Waiting for word
Children and spouse
the hours so endless
No episode of House
.
Complete the surgery
No moral concerns
an ethical practice
in modern terms

Surgery now over
another life saved
Years of training
Repaid each day

The Photographer   1 comment

See the light
Is it just right
Capture it how
Capture it now
10 seconds
Damn – too long
The moment gone

Waiting
Waiting
Arms aching
Shot is coming
Camera ready
I can’t put it down
Keep the camera steady

To capture
On a tripod
By a bi-pod
Don’t rush
Don’t jerk
Gently press
An art on earth

By the rules
Portraits on stools
Into the light
Gather my sight
Filter away
Macro
Zoom or stay

Do I crop
Do I straighten
Keep it natural
Retouch
Red-eye
Too much grass
Not enough sky

There it was
Felt it coming
Shot in the air
Momentum showing
Gentle the light
Kept it tight
At last – the image right

I write words that snake from underneath my skin
In nuance form they bring my thoughts to physical form,
a rising conscience, no matter how small they be
On the days on which I write, my mind is clear and
you are witness to my cliched hopes and dreams
Know that the words I write are as true to any feeling,
as heart felt of any painted scenery ever before you
Today I enjoy the pleasure of my words
No one can know what tomorrow may bring so
I cast my words to the world for all to read,
and if just one may find some pleasure or
solace within them, my words and time
have not, and will never have been, wasted
