Long Walls

………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Long Walls

Just sit back and look for solutions
For the riddles and conundrums
That silences the time zone;

Crawl over, mystery that veils over
On the edge of utter wilderness,

Come reeling of the sky board
A sequence of incidental portraits
Suggest mining of life not anymore,
No strategy to build one to fly high.

Open mind, unimpeded with fear
Dwarfed by long seedy nights, roared-
Imprisoned, hopeless and frantic,
Not to end the life in the wastes.

With laughter, into the habit of
Saving more than one option,
Out there in the darkness beyond long walls
Waiting for life to open and never close.

    Despite its allusions to man’s bleaker predicaments ,such as isolation,passivity,incarceration etc. I found this to be a very positive and life affirming work.The predominant images that I had whilst reading were cinematic ones of Jack Nicholson in “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest “.
