Acceptance of Art & Poetry Fused
Once found it speaks to you
There is a soothing voice a touch, a sense of belonging
Uncertainty of yesterday entwined with passion grace and light
Illuminates your every breath when you find it
Bed covers slip down from over your head
Your feet snuggle into shoes that once didn’t fit
Walking forever a new grip on earth beneath your feet
A warm shawl wrapped around shadows of doubt, fear and disbelief
Strolling with a saunter, strutting thru doors once locked tight
Open windows forever hammered shut
Peep through curtains tasting fine views for the very first time
When it comes to you, welcome it like a new hat
Answer with love and embrace it
Enjoy that magic carpet ride shedding all unwanted fears
Riding waves of fortune your joy ride home cast all tears

I have used an edit of “Acceptance” Poem by Lisa Thayer and snaps I took of artwork on show in Milton Keynes Shopping Centre, Robert Koenig, Philip Jackson and Kemefinc…..Mitch Hicks

No Time

Armillary Sphere ~ Justin Tunley


Snap and poem by Mitch Hicks

I wish time would stand still
There is no time
Your time ticks away
My time moves me to tears
Many moons pass over
Shadows mark footsteps
Thoughts spin around
Time has me truly bound

Snap by Mitch Hicks with lots of blue birds in my heart

The Blue Bird by Bukowski

There’s a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out
But I’m too tough for him
I say, stay in there, I’m not going to let anybody see you
There’s a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out
But I pour whiskey on him and inhale cigarette smoke
And the whores and the bartenders
And the grocery clerks never know that he’s in there
There’s a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out
But I’m too tough for him
I say, stay down, do you want to mess me up?
You want to screw up the works?
You want to blow my book sales in Europe?
There’s a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out
But I’m too clever
I only let him out at night sometimes when everybody’s asleep
I say, I know that you’re there, so don’t be sad
Then I put him back, but he’s singing a little in there
I haven’t quite let him die
And we sleep together like that with our secret pact
And it’s nice enough to make a man weep
But I don’t weep, do you?
