Decisive and Clear

Decisive and clear
When gifted with sight
Past all the chaos
Direct from the light

An idea comes
Without prior thoughts
Solutions appear
As if embossed

With certainty, vigor
Poetic depth
Perfect to satisfy
Contemplation bereft.

-Kelly Voelker

bereft - deprived of or lacking something, especially a nonmaterial asset.

Listen to this Moment

Let me listen to this moment
Separate from the rest
Stopping time and motion
Stopping thoughts to test

Who is now observing
Apart from timeline's pace
What was so important?
What worried me to waste?

I'll sit here in this vacuum
Of momentary stasis
Until I reset actions
Perpetuating graceless

Mind chaotic details
Worry, doubt and lack
Somewhere is the peaceful
State that I want back.

Church of Chance



Everything's a gamble
Short and long term gains
Playing for advancement
Or to stay ahead of pain

Life is the Casino
A Church of Chance set up
The Divinity of challenge
A web of interest hub

Happiness crescendos
Come and go in blips
The wheel of fortune always
Reassures the downward dips

What's gained is rarely noticed
It buys what's still in lack
Health, Wealth or Security
Leveraged, lost or backed
These three are interchanging
Utilizing Time to act.

Newness Beauty Game

Throw the marbles into the lawn
Build beauty around each one
Don't fuss about as if you know
The beauty lent to us will go
And be over grown and so
Disappear from our scope of sight
To forget is as natural as is delight
Upon the discovery there
Some newness beauty branches where
Nothing is as nothing was until
The newness of beauty
Transforms and goes and forgets it name
The newness beauty disappearing game.

-Kelly Voelker
