Veil Of Flowery Incontinence

Veil Of Flowery Incontinence …


Where comes that reach that we all journey

beyond time’s magic hands

inside some pursuing flow outside the mind

away from living called “the present”

forming what is passing as “the past”

inside the veil of flowery incontinence


When we once lay in those barely disturbed pages

writing what was to be written

with reason and ration given by then

following footsteps so carefully lain

bursting with power almost as it was laid, “to be”

carrying us inside that all splayed, forgotten place


With mind a forefront to the future

pressing greedily through that which is now

shading what is now that gift “the present”

reaching beyond what has formed implanted

creating where is now soon to be the past

grabbing wildly for the future


Born to live in the shining  sun of life

forming what will in time form our soul

reaching inside that gift given to us

paralleling what has gone before

grieving in 2020 vision for what we have sewn

parlaying good into better, bad into evil


As snows cover over our eyes of intelligence

with rains ever washing away our sight

our withering, ever expanding, ever reaching souls

grasp throughout the gaining period of life

attaining what was ever meant to be

entwining deeply inside the veil of flowery incontinence

I have been writing since 1967, basically as an emotional release, but in the last few years I have become interested in creation of forms as well as being socially accepted by my peers. So, here I am. Relate to me, please!

    Ahh! I love to travel beyond the veil, but it is not (in my experience) a flowery incontinence, just spiritual. Great piece, Donald. It is mystical and mysterious. Well penned. I enjoyed this very much.

      Thank you very much. Phyllis, for your kindest visit and most appreciated remarks. This rolled “tripping ly from the tongue,” from that ethereal place we all abide!

    This was an enjoyable read Donald, and the funny thing is the subject closely relates to something I was also working on simply called “Life and Death.” It amazes me how often other writers seem to be lead to write about similar topics at seemingly the same time.

      Thank you very much, John. You are so right, in that writers have the same aura surrounding them at times, leading them to similar subjects of thought.
