Saw Hemingway Again

Saw
Hemingway  
again
Siting in a cafe
Eyes closed
hands joined
In inverted
prayer ,
thinning hair
parted ,
red faced ,
meditating
on  hell .
So many people
mindfully suffer.
Some end
the weight
give up
the ghost
of depression
of  hate
& self loathing
in anaesthetic
solution.

Let us Rest

 Let us Rest

Let us Rest

Dark blue stripe,
Red stripe
Light azure blue above,
Silver sliver,
hanging on the azure blue
and Orion’s jeweled belt
up and to the right.
Time with a 5 and 6
in it .
The coming of 7
in heaven.
Let us rest now,
close our eyes,
and fall into
a deep and
unawakened
sleep
to the chirps of birds
as planes
fall fast
and close
into our Earhart
dreams.

From “Eyes of The Artist” by PWChaltas

Years of Love

Years of Love

Years of love
compressed
into few moments
of conversation .
Across
backdrop
of light stretched
blue,
a spider careful,
delicately crawls
weaving  webs
between
white worn rails
of time .
Soft music playing ,
lovers speak
In different accents ,
about the past ,
all made present ,
made one ,
real
while side by side ,
dove and sparrow
watch
