Abeyance

Every second a future,
Every day one past.
Each breath an hour,
Until your last.

Be this moment who you are,
Where you are,
Today.
Or forever be,
Who you weren’t,
As dreams,
Time wiles away.

Look towards life’s awakened trek,
And twilight,
Whilst night falls.

Then seize the rush of howling winds,
Where winters bite burns cold.

Beneath hot sweltering sun in sands,
Where bones now bleached are dust,
Long days when flames,
Sear white one’s loss,
Of wasted thoughts in lust.

Where barren shores ill-fated fold,
Hell cast in mass life’s scattered toll,
Waters cool,
Burn now white hot,
So deep within his soul.

A place elapsed in time miss-spent,
This gift of life soon fades.
A riverbed now draped in fog,
No risk this man would take.

And now near death, he lies alone,
Past chimeras soon they fade,
A life graced once which offered worlds,
Bequeathed forever,
Sealed his fate.

Johnny Johnstonhttp://www.blufengr-art.com/
An artist/writer as well as graduate of the University of South Carolina with degrees in journalism/20th Century American Literature, and retired senior executive of several international hotel/resort corporations, Johnny is the product of the south having been raised in the ever-changing transient lifestyle of a Carolina coastal resort. A point where he discovered, within his 300-year-old heritage and the world's dramatic social/cultural shifts during the late '60s to early 80’s an ambitious hunger and overwhelming curiosity to touch, see and become a participant in the virtually unlimited possibilities offered to those who wish for and seek life experiences. A journey which when hearing its details initially makes one a bit skeptical, questioning its validity as it is hard to imagine that incidents such as these may have crossed one man’s lifetime. This is the fodder required to step into zones exposing one's personal inner self, which many of his paintings and the words he writes do, openly. An ability to see and hear the tragic, beautiful, accomplished, exciting journey in a life free of inhibitions allowing others the opportunity to live vicariously and become, through his works, a part of its future. His larger works which have been featured in several Colorado and Fredericksburg Texas galleries and resorts have produced a number of collectors and fans. However, over the years, his paintings are mostly viewed by friends, enthusiastic new artist encountered on the streets or a small number of acquaintances he meets when dining in local cafés with his wife.

  1. As my dear friend, Larry Tyler put it, an amazing story from a great writer! I would take the liberty to appreciate the intense fervor with which you have given vent to your poetic brilliance, Johnny!

    For once, I am reminded of the sand dunes in the desert of the Emirates, of Dubai in particular. Our Desert Safari guide drove us to the spot where old camels surrender themselves to death, so they could embrace Mother Nature as their grave.

    It shall certainly be an honor for me to see one of your painting exhibitions, God Willing!

    Thank You, Dear Johnny Johnston, for this remarkable breath of reality in its different ‘avatars.’
