The Tension… by Kelvin Bueckert


The Tension

And when the birds flew
over the chaos
of stock markets
and cursing
there was a music
in the grace of flight
that passed without a tremor
and when the lions raged
against the human tide
only the animals heard
the symphony
over the racket and the clamor
and while the peace fled
from the rivets and spigots
there remained
only faded kaleidoscopes
artificial rhythms
battling with the natural melody
and harmony


Kelvin Bueckert lives, acts and writes on the plains of Manitoba, Canada. He has been published in Horizon Magazine, The Fifth Dimension, Alien Skin and many others. He recently released a free collection of poetry and essays titled: Of Life and Spirit.
