Poetry from a Dublin Scientist

Polymath

A polymath am I, with wondrous mind powers,

The names of all the flowers, Euclid’s geometry,

A feel my brain to brim with facts miscellaneous

Surmises extemporaneous, the best philosophy

And to end chemistry.

#

I practice languages from French to ancient latin

Recite the songs of Chopin, and Chinese History

I plumb the darkest depths of physics hard equations

Behavior of crustaceans, Roman mythology

And for fun poetry

Four years

Recently I awoke,

As I always do,

You beside me

Wrapped in sheets,

Your natural state,

Enjoying the silence,

No words spoken,

Only a hug, a soft kiss,

Nothing else needed

To celebrate the passing

Four years together

With you, the love of my life.

Photo exhibit

Images from the whole world

Makes us all look small

#

Fish tank without light

Plants seem to be surviving

Maybe not needed

#

Job applications

Are just lying through your teeth

Better than the rest

Learning Español

Working, on speaking, writing

Not very easy

#

Over whole weekend

Did absolutely nothing

We just ate pizza

#

Back on the internet

I got a new  computer

Hope this isn’t robbed

See my darling wife

Covered to her face in sheets

Her natural state

#

Snow in the mountains

Better than it raining there

Cuts in water suck

#

Five hour difference

Between my old home and new

Makes chat difficult

You

You, my love have no compare

Your beauty’s more than I can bare

Your smile a light across the world

Your scent as like a rose unfurled

Your eyes a font that fills my soul

Your lips, sweet kiss, my only goal

You, my love now own my life

For you, sweet love, are now my wife.

Forever worried

About the gold band slipping

Newly married fears

##

Rain higher up now

Scarring the mountain’s white caps

See Global warming

##

On the underground

Trying to enjoy the trip

But too much music

Southern Hemisphere

Is the wrong damn way around

Christmas in summer???

####################

Pure ammonia

Smell like week old rat’s urine

Really hangs about

Christmas tree is up

Covered in many knick-knacks

Collected through life

When you’re tired my love

I have just the recipe

Hugs and chocolate

I once met a dog on the street

On the lookout for something to eat

It had caught on the breeze

The Aroma of Cheese

But alas it was only my feet

##

A mayor did cavort his caboose

But when caught had a unique excuse

“See I have to look nice

For my ladies of vice

So I’m the best dressed man you can choose.”
