85. Dhul-Jalal-wal-Ikram – Power and Beauty

Suggests majestic, bounty, honor - 'Truth has beauty, power,
and necessity'- Sylvia Townsend Warner

Beauty and Power
Hey look at the colour of yon yellow rose
(the incorrigible edges of crazy plants)
rest and gaze-out from a mountain ledge
(now put on a harness, your mate is the belay)
lyrically blowing - a lullaby
(from an ageing punk, strutting his stuff)
and a picture window onto the pond
(where a gannet plummets – spearing a fish).

Anger into joy,
fear turns into love

lifting a circle
beyond any 2D
with effort - and glory -
spiral upstairs.


  1. Hey John,
    Kudos on this project and the use of the word Belay which I loved. I will read the rest when I have time said she with fingers and eyes crossed.
