Disgusted none of it he left not looking back!

Red Wolf Poems:
stillness time sacred shallowness
mandala fading moody tobacco

3WW:
alive glaring misty

Poets United:
music

Boisterous crowd very alive tonight
Not the stillness of an evening stroll
Music blaring in keeping with the tide
Unwieldy slips jiving to an awakened soul

Time to be together most precious
Sacred endeavors all for a good time
Though shallowness of jibes still obvious
What of it for young folks keeping in line

Seated around in  somewhat  mandala fashion
What he had in mind all along for a tortured soul
Crudely unperturbed but a perfect ambiance
Sadness fading moody still but steadfastly bold

Misty tobacco smoke swirling in abundance
A tinge of weed aroma he could faintly detect
Glaringly his mood dive changed so sudden
Disgusted none of it he left not looking back

  1. Yes, most important is the time to be together.....and melodies are such an important part of this time.

  2. How often I thought in my youth "What am I doing here?". Suddenly the penny drops that time and money are being wasted for no profit whatsoever.

  3. Never look back. Just keep moving forward, one step at a time.

  4. I resonate with this poem - crowd scenes dont do much for me. Good one, Hank.

  5. Time together is a great thing to have indeed, but when stuff like weed and dumb things start cropping up, time to get the hell outta there

  6. I'd have been turned off by the tobacco just as fast.

  7. I believe you capture the seductiveness of the club scene with music and smoke that both call and repel. Nicely done!

  8. I think that it is a wise choice...home is the best place to spend an evening..i love the image of the crowd as a mandala...although not as wise perhaps...nicely penned Hank!

  9. a crowd can be so lonely...because you are not really together...
    the intimacy of being together is so important...

  13. Nicely expressed, Hank.
    I love music, but definitely not tobacco smoke or weed aroma!
    Even I'd love to get away from such places :)
    Merry Christmas!
