who’s in charge?

late at night i should be sleeping
over tired – over thought – over wrought
time to forget what i forgot
You say to me
“let go this worldly show
tilting values tapping toes
I’ll take your cares and woes
rest your head
I’m the One who knows”

plumb – lining

day by day an old cliche
can i strike a better deal
for one span in time
today is mine
as the sun shines
i’ll make hay
one brick upon another
the plumb line present
i do not wish
a hard day’s stubble
at the end of my life

chop logic

the end is not yet
the last mile not walked
the last thought unthought
the last step not taken
the last word unspoken
the last deed undone
how do i know
i don’t

the pianist and the dream

a song of joy
unrehearsed
my mind catches the wind
flight takes its course
waterfalls
cascade their fortes
varied cadenzas
circle my brain
leaving me dizzy
with elation
and yet
the transformation
“mind to fingers”
would take some time
before the song was really mine!

plaudonwriting is an “everyday” happening for Priscilla – it has taken her on an incredible “word craft” journey. she has several published poems, resides in Abbotsford, and is a current member of the Fraser Valley Poet’s Society in Abbotsford BC. Priscilla is also a pianist and composer. when time allows she enjoys creating and teaching practical recycling crafts. she has four married children and ten grand children, all of whom make her very happy!

Priscilla has authored the bittersweet journey: poetry and prose plainspoken.
