A plurality of poetry

A proliferation of short poems by Martyn Foster.


What you’ll find hereafter is six independent four-lined poems which I scribbled at various times in recent months as a part of what I like to call “Morning Café Musings”, please enjoy.


The ones I liked best were the third and last ones, but let me know which you like best.


#1

Brain like a runaway train

A rollercoaster ride of pain

Spraying bullets in the dark

Hoping to hit its mark


#2

Tired eyes, tired mind

A burden too big to bare

Staring into the abyss

The soul wanders into The Devil’s lair


#3

Living in a world of one

A desert island of the mind

Is this a result of my own doing?

Seek and you shall find


#4

Free as a bird, enslaved as a human

Is the bird really free? He knows nothing else

A branch here, a crumb there

All in the pursuit of good health


#5

The weight of the world on your shoulders

But “the world is not enough”

The melancholia of someone

Whose inner world is boundless


#6

What does it mean to love someone?

Communication takes on other levels

Duality is always secretly unity

Entwined forever, the red and white rose petals
