Turquoise 3




How good this carnal fire?

Where the liberty flag flies

The morning sun rushing hope



The turn of our innermost feelings

Please assemble on the tarmac

Let the firefighters wrestle the hydrant



Form an orderly queue and listen

The peaceful narrative soliloquy

The band-aid, the mountain jagged


And sleep – a courtroom jester

Mocking both our reason and our tact

Within the folds of distress




A window open leaning where

There is a soft bird yearning

A faint hope burning






#Authors Note ~ After enduring Day 26 of my Isolation during CV-19 pandemic EDENBRAY in EXILE launches a 22nd Retrospective piece.

Tonight I watched the Sidney Lumet classic movie – #NETWORK for the very 1st time – 40 years after it was released and somehow it is hard to believe that film was anywhere near as relevant or amusing when it was 1st released all those years ago despite winning 4 – Academy Awards. It would make great #essentialviewing for this LOCKDOWN audience – so relevant – so funny! … so to the point! … …  and then theres EDENBRAY’s – Turquoise 3 similarly appears to fit like a latex glove and ‘live’ in the present paranoid, virally challenged but conversely loving era that we are currently living through!

Maybe what I had had feared most, all along, is coming true – that I really wrote all my verse for such a tragic & sad time as this – when we are all feeling unlike ourselves and choosing or should I say turning into characters out of the Walking Dead in a kind of huge role play.                                                                                    edenbraytoday




I’m turning in ..to Hershel Greene

… calm, solid, wise, dependable, experienced, spiritually mature and with *2 beautiful daughters … (also deluded!)

PARENTAL DISCLAIMER: *NOTE – not deluded on this final point by the way!
