Alphabet Thursday & Haiku: L Is 4 Locks

A Poem:

How is everything so far?
so full of rays of emptiness?
Do you still have interest
as life is surveyed and reprogrammed?
Are you sure that
X-rays transubstantiate a mind, or a choice?
Do you give novel feelings credit?
Is she still your wife, you husband?
She used to hover, baby you,
She also chives you to focus on your own plate,
But you distance with a mild gesture,
Fearing what others judge you….
So constant is the unsettling tide
where beach, waves, and wind collide.
Wishing you a sunny day
as she remains far, far away.

Haiku for Haiku challenge/ Alphabet Thursday: L is for Locks
Stuck in locked mind,
Life is not going to be grand,
You’d better unwind.
Lovely colored locks,
Reminder to messy stocks,
Need keys to succeed.

Locks is a good L word. I had my "locks" touched up by my beautician daughter today!

I like the gentle philosophical reflectiveness of your first poem here - it does fit with the fairy in the image very well - makes me want to daydream too...
