Elfje Trio: Altered Altar -or- The Sun Rotates

Elfje Trio:
Altered Altar -or- The Sun Rotates

angle
of the
morning sun, light
through the front window
changed

catching
the edge
of my glasses
through the corner, corona
see

bouncing
off the
hardwood floors, almost
blinding – and yet inspiring
words…

15 words for Elisabeth Musical Notes #7
an Elfje for Owl City/Fireflies and Paul Simons’ Under African Skies

pulse
light life
blue red blood
or green-yellow glowing
spirit

Process notes: Elfje’s eleven words fit both – Thanks, Elizabeth.

autumn chill creeping
into the night while sleeping
came – below fifty

September 14: An Elfje Quad

Near Yet Distant

some
anniversaries are
reminders of sadness
it’s been twelve years –
loss

time
marches on
and just when
breath returns so do
tears

contemplation
edging reality
at the creek
banking on good memory
flow

I
stand alone
let water fall
from my blinking eyes…
see?

September 12 – an Elfje quint

Step in Time

.
technology
is fine
when it works
but when it doesn’t
– absence

computers
their language
is foreign for
my ears, mutes our
laughter

attempts
to understand
the zeroes and
the ones, this time
failed

cavalry
will be
called and utilized
to fix and teach
– education

furturistic
elements parade
I think the
barn dance calls me,
square

September 7

a renga

natural result
of the loss of life – death leaves
me flat, deaf, half blind

honored by some in grand stone
on sacred ground – remember

the stories, lessons –
the ashes mixed with shed tears
of the many unknown

September 6

a renga

calendar squares work
only when you take the time
to see what is there

what appointment you’ve written
to keep – becomes a surprise

there, a faint door knock
peer out the window – a truck
for service that’s due

September 5

renga:

voice, vibrations made
through the direction of thought
undone by damage

unknown disease, direction
changes, creating accents

ears now hear foreign
accent syndrome unrehearsed
spoken on life’s stage
