Thursday ghazal

The day of Jesus washing feet’s today,

a day when everything’s replete today.

I’ve gobbled fruit and vegetables down

and made a last attack on meat today.

My stomach’s full, my teeth have done their work

so now’s a time that we could meet today.

Can we tell our truth in love and coldness

or fire up anger, lies and cheat today?

All circles start and finish on a rim

and round and round we could repeat today.

It’s warm in sunshine, colder in the dark

and air is shifted up by heat today.

A smoke ring turns, expands and spirals up;

a day when everything’s complete today.
