Ken Allan Dronsfield – 1 poem 


I seek some remembrance today;

staring at that gaudy wallpaper

hung with care in our bedroom.

I wonder if you’re finally at peace;

days roll slow, thoughts come and go

in this lonely, cathartic lifetime.

This abysmal and debilitating age;

can a serene existence be found

or must I survive with this queasy,

innocuous ameliorate daily?

Feel a boisterous folly during days

as spring’s cascading rain brings

childish recollections of happiness.

Come visit me in a soft whisper;

dancing with me rocking slowly

as a coolish hazy misty loving spirit.

Meet me at the old frog pond where

our chairs sit empty in stoic repose as

the sun rises above the trees to the east.

Hence, I’ll take one more breath this day,

and you… are….where?

Ken Allan Dronsfield – 2 poems 

Melting in the Dark

Mercy granted in the key of C

coffee cafe on a June Saturday

careless in fantasies or icy dreams

field full of Frisbee’s floating freely

geese on the pond chasing sailboats

tripping in the park; melting in the dark

Quagmire still runs searching for Lois

dance a jiggidy step as Peter frolics

seek forgiveness; tomorrow’s Sunday

busting a bubble from a pink Bazooka

Pleasuring rhyme upon a cartoon insert

begging for mercy in MacArthur’s Park.


Thorns and Petals

And in the final act

we were all just human

intoxicated with the idea

that love, only love would

heal our starved hearts,

mend our brokenness and

bind our wanton lust with

rose thorns and red petals.
