Namagyan Beach

A beach captivating deprived eyes, Fascination, grandiose haven in July, Keeping lovely mountains nearby, Of Pacific, quixotic, refulgent sunset/sunrise. Tarry! Unwind! Vast waves eXtrudes Yuletide-like Zephyr.
Written: Aug. 16, 2012 This is a beautiful beach in Tamurong, Candon, I.S. It is located near my place or compound just a walking distance from my house. Its name was officially given by the people living in that area who are mostly relatives. The word "namagyan" means "relatives." Many visitors are going to this place and enjoy the nature, their moments and most especially the whole day of Sabado De Gloria (Black Saturday) and ecumenical services are held on this beautiful beach on the dawn/sunrise of Easter Sunday! It's a very fantastic place to visit! Come and see!

Besides Love Men Need Fishing,

FISHING


Besides love men need fishing, 
And for both, most are wishing, 
Catching trophies chosen best,
To be envied by the rest.

Fishing is a game of sport 
Loved by all, both tall and short.
We must fool the fish’s eye, 
If we plan to stir and fry,

Some use boats while others wade, 
As they fish the sun or shade. 
Ice-cold drinks help pass the day, 
While life’s troubles fade away.

Most men feel they've everything, 
With their rod, hook, cork and string.
Be it river, pond or lake, 
We all pray our line won't break.

REVOLUTION BABY

 REVOLUTION BABY


Am from the backseats of mean streets
I got my eye aiming the Wall Street
They said education is the key
I wonder why they made it expensive for we,
Am sitting around hood rats,
Gangsters and Ex- prisoners
Sniffing, snatching, stuffing stuff
Mama expects a lawyer, a doctor, a mayor,
Newsflash!
We are in the middle of a crisis
Am the original copy of a son-of-a-gun
I define the odds
I believe to break a law,
Is to make a road
You go east or west,
Home is still the best
But with a bullet in your chest
Don’t mess with these streets
They will give you a free ride to hell
Pot and crack do rounds all over,
It’s a mess,
I am needed, you are needed,
We are needy
Damn!
We are in a man eat man generation
You either survive or succumb
There’s a billion ways to die,
Choose one,
It’s time for a change,
Change of perspectives,
Change of attitude,
Change of behavior
Let’s get out of our comfort zone,
Coz that’s what’s drowning us,
We need a change
Change for the better
It’s revolution time!!

An Oak

I have never seen a living thing
That looked so very dead--
Lacking elegance and color,
Seeming dolorous, instead.

And its limbs were much distorted,
Like an old, arthritic hand,
As it leaned there, hunched and crooked,
As if it hurt to stand.

But while it had the look of death
It bestowed the coolest shade,
Leaving me to wonder why...
This God so oddly made?

A Shady Tree

I know its the summer time because of how naturally 
Your beauty compliments the caress of a summer breeze
As I watch the world from beneath a shady tree
I take in the delightful comfort of everything I see
But in the same breath I am holding up my hands
Lord will you please give me back the things I no longer have
They are even more a part of me now that they are gone 
As the sun falls below where the horizon is still holding on
Somewhere between the falling light and a star lit night
Is a dream that last forever and will never say goodbye
As the wind gently blows through the brush and shakes the leaves
It begins to hum a melody that I want to sing
At that very moment I smile for all the joy I have
Its so uplifting for me to see melancholy dance
Soon the morning sun will rise and capture my eyes
As I watch the hand of God paint a brand new sky
With every stroke of color I swallow all my pride
And I find a new place to dream of endless times
If I should ever get to the place I left my broken heart
Only then will I believe this brand new day will start
Again Im reminded of why my heart beats so restlessly
Only the speed of thought and my soul beneath this tree

For the love of Sol

Alluring, beckoning;
brushing each droplet with his tantalising golden touch.

Charmed by his searching warmth,
dewy debutantes
eagerly follow, rising effortlessly from a
field of naive dreams, 
giving their virtue to his
heaven sent heat.

Innocence is lost, as
jewels of youth and inexperience,
kissed by his fiery passion,
levitate in brief rapture then disappear,
mourned only by carefree bare feet on a morning stroll.

Narcissistic, he admires his reflection,
over and over, 
pearlescent on a gossamer haze of 
quivering souls,
replaying the pleasure of a
selfish sacrifice
to satisfy his own thirst.

Unquestioned by nature,
victory is his alone, and though
whispering branches sing softly of
xanadu,
yesterday’s dew knows it never existed.

Zephyrs bring a cool twilight air, laden with tomorrow’s oblation.

Glimpses of epiphany

Glimpses of epiphany

Once, a long, long time ago
I was filled with cares and woe
I thought that I was going to die
And the fear of it, it made me cry
As life became a misery
Self-pity came enfolding me.

And then one day amidst the trees
Something did take on over me
The trees lit up like Christmas lights
Glistened silver, sparkling bright
And I fell beneath the mystery
My heart all filled with untold glee

A whisper seemed to fill my soul
The world seemed pure, and sweet, and whole
And I knew, I had no doubt at all
That everything is wonderful
And since that day a peace has been
Making my world so serene

The Amazon Jungle (If I Had A Voice)

I am a vast area of trees, animals, and
vegetation,
The worst animal of all (man) is causing
my devastation,
I provide food and support life each day,
As my very own life is being stripped away,
Who will take care of my animals and plants,
At this rate they don't stand a chance,
When will I be left alone to live,
Probably when it's too late, when I have 
nothing left to give.

RAIN SHOWERS

The Earth dry and bare; waiting eagerly for the drops of care;
 


Caught in the hot, steaming summer’s snare;
 


The flowers and creepers decorating window sills; all look desolate and ill;
 


As the nature withers away in the sun’s merciless glare.
 


 
 


The men and the wives; the kids and the wild;
 


All are enduring the summer’s waterless exile;
 


They are waiting for the rain; to relieve them of the heat pain;
 


And of that life which has become a sweaty turmoil.
 


 
 


The wind strong and gusty; makes the roads yellow and dusty;
 


And the air around becomes suffocating and musty;
 


The birds forget to sing; their lilting, musical thing;
 


Even as the tree leaves wristle and make noise so husky.
 


 
 


Then come the Monsoon showers; falling first on boughs and flowers;
 


Making the trees and plants glisten and glower;
 


So the monsoon comes in grace; driving away summer’s trace;
 


Lashing at window-panes with its all-reigning power.
 


 
 


As the monsoon drives away the summer heat; with its raining rhythm off-beat;
 


And the flower buds open up to return it’s greet;
 


And as the water seeps in soil; a refreshing fragrance arise;
 


While the rain continuous to cool down hot gardens and streets.
 


 
 


The Earth grows green; and water droplets gleam;
 


On the smooth, waxy surfaces of the leaves;
 


Everywhere the flowers grow; in pink, red, white or yellow;
 


While buds make their way blushingly between tendrils.
 


 
 
 The wet and soft soil; now grows fertile;
 


And tender green plantlets push through the Earth in style;
 


Through soil the tiny saplings peep; as their sown seeds begin to reap;
 


And the plants and crops shake off the Earth’s temporary curse sterile.
 


 
 


As the raindrops go pitter-patter; water in puddles begins to gather;
 


And the little birds begin to chirp, twitter and chatter;
 


The insects begin to hum along; their irritating and happy song;
 


While due to rain and wind the roofs on houses begin to chatter.
 


 
 


As the showers for some moments cease; after giving Earth life’s new lease;
 


And the pitter-patter of rain is gently appeased;
 


The sun coyly shines; a cloud it half hides behind;
 


While the fluffy clouds move along with the cool breeze.
 


 
 


The fields now green and bright; are an artist’s sheer delight;
 


Pleasing to the senses of smell and sight;
 


The fresh air so sweet to breathe; that with pleasure the body writhes;
 


In the newly born rainy sunlight.
 


 
 


But this sunlight so quickly goes; as thunderstorms blow to and fro;
 


And Earth engulfs in darkness that now grows;
 


The wind rises and howls; with a voice that trembles all souls;
 


And day and night this gale roars.
 


 
 


The trees in fear tremble and shake; as leaves, twigs and branches break;
 


And the life of these trees is put up at stake;
 


Birds in nests cower with fright; and due to cold shiver with all their might;
 


And live in fearful anticipation of what else the storm may rake.
 


 
 
The monsoon now shows its ugly face; gone are its days of grace;
 


Rainy calamities take its place;
 


Cyclones and floods destruct worldwide; the raging sea throws up its tide;
 


“Nature reigns supreme”, we are forced to say.
 


 
 


Same is the life of man; may he do what he can;
 


But destiny will always play a hand;
 


What all will man control? So he should let destiny play its role;
 


And enjoy life and act as the situation will demand.
 


 
 


Somedays will shine the sun; those days life will be fun;
 


And work will be successful how much ever it’s done;
 


Somedays by the fun you will tire; and will long to get back into the attire;
 


Of normal life, however boring or glum.
 


 
 


Sometimes hope will come out; like a tiny plant sprouts;
 


And will remove from your mind every shade of doubt;
 


It will be a bright, hopeful ray; but for long it may not stay;
 


So we must make most of it when hope sprouts.
 


 
 


Just as the shower of joy; after summer comes out shy;
 


So shower of success will come when you have almost given up the try;
 


It will wash away your helpless sigh; and will give you a new will to try;
 


Which will help you succeed by-and-by.
 


 
 


Just as the sun goes behind the cloud; when thunder is heard aloud;
 


And darkness suddenly falls on Earth all around;
 


So also failure will touch you once; its upto you to prevent its repeated occurrence;
 


Or due to failure remain depression bound.
 


 
 


Sometimes through demotivation you will go; sometimes loads of success you'll know;
 


For we need all types of experience to make us grow;
 


Like some days it is wet; some days the sun for long doesn’t set;
 


But then it needs both the rain and the sun to make a RAINBOW…

Yosemite Valley

A glazed view, as through a glass that magnifies
Between the granite banded with blue and umber
Cruel paths of glacier, ancient swords of hunger
Deeply carved a threshold one can hardly grasp
Each turn of compass, leaves a gasp
Forever brings our talking to a halt
Green rivers whipped to white by waterfalls
How gaunt the pines climb high upon the ridge
Itself, a place exempt from time
Justifies belief of Godly kind
Keeping watch above a valley floor
Looming monoliths of ancient lore
Morning bright of shimmering brooks that flow 
Next brings winter breezing through the mind
Ours the privilege of beholding
Past and futures coming here together
Question not the overwhelming wonder
Relished eyes behold the truthful splendor
Saturates the heart and soul forever
That if one stands too long within such glory
Under white peaks and folklore stories
Varying degrees of speechlessness and thrill
With sun above,  and human form so small
Xanadu is not of fiction, it is real
Yosemite, this place, this land of royal grace
Zenith, this land of majesty, my eyes and heart embrace

The cloud

O, cloud, how you travel,
As slow as a thirsty camel,
And waft above morning breeze,
And above thirsty lands at ease
To watch cities drown in smog,
presents wrapped in yellow fog,
you migrate from wheels' squeals,
and strange music of morn and eve,
O, cloud that is migrating fast,
You are the first, the second and last,
To forsake the rice fields and valley,
With remorse, with urge to cry,
For a lone rose that wants to fly,
So spreads her aroma to your sky
To be consumed around gently,
To be left with her yellow dignity.
O, cloud the tutor of integrity;
The vying rose is eager to learn,
How wherever and whenever 
You fall, Satisfying all longed for rain, 
you glide to your mother
To the vast sea to reborn again,
Tell her, your mysteries are the same
To enjoy generous and eternal game.

JAMESTOWN 1607=They ate their horses, dogs, cats and rats

JAMESTOWN
1607 



Four hundred years ago high-born Brits sailed to America
Seeking fast fortunes, adventure and fame.
Many would never endure their first year here
Cultivating, foraging, and hunting game.

Arriving in Virginia they came ill-prepared
In search of gold and a route to the South Seas
What they found were hostile Indians,
Insects, starvation, and disease.

“Virginia is Earth’s only Paradise!”
The laureate of England would proclaim!”
However by August of 1607,
Every day there was anguish, and pain.

They ate their horses, dogs, cats and rats
One man ate his wife and hid her bones in the ground.
Despite their hardships, half managed to survive 
Becoming America’s first permanent, English town .

Three-In-One

Alliteration

July's jealousy justified your jilting,
yet love's luminescence lingers long.
Wrapped in refulgent reminiscence;
recollecting summer's soothing solace
under scrutiny of somniferous stars.


ABC

Autumn burns crackling daylight,
evenings flame. Grains harvested
illuminate jars; khaki leaves
meander noiselessly on pavements.
Quiet roseate sunbeams
tremble upon vibrant wheat's
xanthous yearly zeal.


Acrostic

Light searches softly for me down here in the loamy dark;
I offer my awakening self to the vast blue canvas of sky.
Leaves filter a soft sigh of air through the trees
Yielding their branches to the balmy, blossom-swirling breeze.

Open me gently to those promises that still pulse in me, let me
Feel the sweet green unfurling of hope and possibility.

The turquoise murmurings of water seep into my scented skin.
Hear me as my floral notes begin to sing of a happy return of spring;
Efflorescing in sun-gold streams and trembling sunbeams.

Valleys sling their green hammocks between the hills
And pale fingers of light slide softly under my lucent skin.
Lucid memory will return again: how the sun's rays reached for me,
Luminous upon my white, fragrant frailty; how the vast expanse of blue
Entranced me, as I awakened to ascend the ladder of light,
Yearning for my perfumed release from the earth's cold clamp.

Though the setup fervent
Scenarios fatalistic
To the novice fallacious
And spell binds many
Making the modest definition
The zenith of Hades
Color-flies the entire texture
That maroons the spear contrast
Benching a murky frame
Lights on, lights out
The close fastidious
And remains obnoxious

Moonlit Snow

Another blizzard covers December
Enveloping fields--golden hills,
Inviting January's kaleidoscopic luminescence.
Moonlit night--opulent playful quivers.
Rolling sparkling terraces unfold--
Vivid, white, xilinous--
Yankee zephyrs.

Snows Glorious Realm

A Blizzard can drive even flurries graciousness hard intensifying journeys kingdoms laboring missions neighborhoods overridden pure quests reveal storms terrorizing unknowing victims with xenobiotic yielding zoothapsis.



Snow can be so beautiful and serene.
Though wet and bitterly chilling.
Unifying the countryside in brilliancy,
Victimizing the ground in slumber,
It must truly be experienced to appreciate its wonders.

purpose of existence

Deep within the realms of my inquisitive mind is burdened a thought. Given birth 
by silent amazement as I pondered upon nature, its beauty eternal.

Ages bloom and fade like flowers, yet remains this burden, this thought does not 
devour!...
Like a lonely flower in the midst of the midnight forest of vast mysteries

I am lost!

I stumble upon thee, a desolate leaf, shrivelled and ebbed of life. It clinches with 
what strength remains to its master, a great tree. An ocean of sympathy floods 
my soul as I stand here and glance upon thee.

“ Do not feel sorry for me”, it whispers, “ for I myself have no regrets in these 
fading moments of my life. Let my appearance deceive you not, for it is infinite joy 
not fear that surrounds me. Tis not melancholic darkness but heart sweetening 
light that dances within my soul.

Many an idle day have I served my master, my purpose in life have I fulfilled. For 
since the dawn of spring, my brothers and I, have welcomed the morning sun, 
the light of life to dance upon us. Throughout the duration of  summer have we 
gathered this light and served our master, our purpose of existence. Now that 
autumn has awoken my life nears an end. The breeze of the forthcoming winter 
hath blown farewell to all my brothers, thus only I remain. When I go from hence 
let this be my parting word:

I have given my life, sacrificed my soul to fulfil thee with life, my master, so if the 
end comes here, let it come!...

A gentle breath of wind blew the proud leaf into the distant horizon......

The thought that burdened me for an eternity had finally found it resting place.

What is the purpose of my life?

To serve thee, my lord, my master, the purpose of my existence.....

BREATHING

From the moment I sleep
to the moment I wake
From the moment of death
to the moment of birth
It wasn't the amount of breaths I took that ment i lived,
it was the amount you took away.

                                It came on the wind pushing me off the cliff blowing in my ear,
                                                                      Pushing thoughts in my head
                                             Throwing my emotions stronger than any hurricane

Your sweet voice carried on a soft breeze
It speaks to my heart in rhyme
It can even pick me out of before to now
 and throw me back in time

                                                                 Every moment I see you I gasp.
                                                   Knowing you don't have to put effort in for me

                                                   Hoping the next time I do you give me the kiss of life.

The rising sun

To watch the disk of life, illuminate
give birth to colors, hold dear
it speaks to my spirit, my implicate innate 
there is nothing in this world to fear
each living tree three hundred year
each year all the more to contemplate
for we are kept alive by this warmth so clear
returning forever, every year a new slate
it does not judge, it bathes you in light.
But while I enjoy summer, others will fight.

Love Beneath Autumn Sky

We lay beneath autumn trees
And autumn leave gently falls.
Laying beside you I'm lost in your eyes,
I'm lost in the presence of you
And autumn leaves gently falls.

We lay there and autumn breeze blow.
Would I trade this moment, no, no.
The rose in your hair is white like winter snow,
beauty lies before my eyes and sparkles glow,
And autumn breeze gently blow.

We lay beneath autumn trees,
We lay in love of autumn breeze.
We lay together in each other eyes,
We lay beneath the season of autumn sky.

Autumn breeze blow and leaves of autumn trees fell,
Staring in your eyes I see the unspoken love for me it tells. 
Autumn leave, red, brown, yellow,
in autumn wind they rattle a love symphony of being hallow.

Small rays of sunlight,
between autumn trees had you glow.
And as we lay together beneath autumn trees,
softly in our love we watch a autumn day goes.

The Ocean Speaks

    I sit on the sand dunes, lost in my thoughts, as the summer breeze swipes my face, freeing my hair....the salt air makes my inner-self come alive, as the ocean waves offer a private showing, reminding me of the power they own. A seagull flies overhead, as it speaks to me oh so gently, and a voice without a face commands me to"Relax and Feel Peace"......I feel a connection to God, as none other I've known, and all my worries and fears I once pondered, now seem trivial and unimportant.

                                                            A beautiful Autumn day
                                                  everyday i sit of the door of our house
                                                but sometimes instead i see a mouse
                                                   it doesn't have to look obvious 
                                                that you spent all the Autumn with her
                                                    the voice of the charted valleys 
                                                         have given me some hope
                                                       but then finally i realize
                                                          that leaves fall from trees
                                                                   and they die
                                                 so i went down in the deep,shallow woods
                                                                 just looking for you
                                                        but again i say, what's useful
                                                    what's useful of hiding down the trees
                                                      watching animals taking care of each other
                                                                 won't that be a reaction
                                                                 trees fade
                                                               but don't come back to life
                                                         suddenly one leaf fell on me
                                                            it was orange 
                                                            and then another leaf fell on me
                                                                  it was yellow

                                                             non were green
                                                        i thought what could cause this
                                                          while i'm only 10

Surrounding us all everywhere

Leaves are swirling over head
Shorter and colder during the day,
Means that Winter's not far away

For when it's Fall they abound
Ghosts and goblins appear too,
Wanting to try and frighten you
I really love the season of Fall,
It's my very favorite one of all

A pauper's tale

You glance down upon my desolate soul......
Entrapped within your eyes the silent glitter of the universe.
Your beautiful hair is enlightened by the sunlit waves of the Ganges.....
Let me kneel beneath the ends of this earth and with my tears cleanse your feet, my Goddess, the embodiment of love.
My offerings at heart are traumatized by the eternal wave of arrows, my fate.......
You have blessed this world with sweet music, your enchanting voice......
Yet drowns my joy, this immutable rhythm of endless cries.
You have subjected me, a lonely flower, amidst this realm of thorns......
my roots cannot compete any longer, my soul is being ebbed of what joy remains.

“Speak to me my Lord, tell me what I have done wrong!”

The gentle agitations of a cocoon, disrupt my train of thought....
She slowly struggles her way out with what strength she has, this beautiful butterfly...
Oh how sweet is this symbol of freedom gracefully flapping its wings.
I see my Lord, I see everything now.......
Only through suffering can one reach salvation.........
With this thought engraved, I shall prolong my love for you, forever and ever....

Amen

Dead person does not harm 
Or love any one
Why people scare of them!
After death

Surgeon knows dead person 
Does not oppose
While dissects corpse

Difference between the dead
And slept is
One can speak
Another cannot.

All know this irony fact
Even cannot trust in that

Like in cinema role remains apart
People in life perform vast
With a fact along belief of act

Thus the life rolls on rolls on 
Until fate defaces task

So in time keep with tact of nature 
And forget to fear with dying act

Surgeon knows dead person
Does not oppose 
While he dissects corpse.

Destruction


The silent sound of falling tree
The oil that chokes the dying sea.
They push our planet to it’s ruin.
Those foolish ones what be they doing?
A tree it falls to sorry end.
My mystic tree, my dearest friend.
Oh how I loath the things they do
They’re taking life from me and you.

As men get rich with worthless things
Through corruption, greed does bring.
They spill their slime each where they go
Making sure that naught can grow
With seas a dying, choked of life
As grey green slime be causing strife.
Sea creatures cry and scream with fear
The planet dies, cause greed won’t hear.

The ozone layer’s  looking sick
As populations grow more thick
The greenies try to combat greed
But their advice there’s none that heed
This thing weighs heavy in the air.
The tower crumbles, they don’t care!!.
This Planet dies ‘it heeds them well!’
As man, he paves his way to hell.

Hidden with dangerous beast. 
Iguana and giraffe are endangered species.
Jaguars are strong can't torn them into pieces.
King of animals they are lions.
Like leopards they are union.
Makes me sick, makes me confuse.
Nothing i can do makes me anxious.

Pink and silver she's holding a fan.
Queen Elizabeth looks not for me.
Reminiscence of Helen is what i see.

The lonesome visitor approaches
With its thriving exuberance
With an infinite endurance
It meanders and broaches

It moves with blithe and glee
Clothing all that comes its way
Whether big or small; it ne'er say
"I wont for you give me no fee

It arrives from nowhere
But abides silently with us
It leaves no wailing thus
With its presence felt everywhere

A companion of the cardinals it is
From North it steers headway
From the South it nears everyday
For East and West will attest to this

It moves above you as a ringed halo
It strides with you as a compatriot
It bows before you as an abbot 
It slithers beneath your feet as a shadow.

Knocks my door, the sound of rain outside
together sings along, all my blues inside
a sad melancholy, in its thunderous recite
flood of thoughts, not willing to go aside.
 
Not a scale above or a level of grain below
filling those sockets, dancing in their shallow
once again brim full, letting that river flow
volume in abundance, there's always more tomorrow.
 
Scenes pass abreast, the leftover days before
always find deceived, there's no one outdoor
moments in escape and waits by the shore
worn-out and weary, whats to say more.
 
Snared between ends, a tough of war
road of maze unwinds, never sure how far
disguised in cold, pillars no more in fear
another fate descends, a price to pay forever.

The difference of her four seasons
The pouring water of rains
As roaring of her mount river
Or floating hovering fog of her face
The beautiful secret sigh 
As ease of her drizzle shower
All her flagrance her fun
Different faces
And different voices
Of her
So beautiful place for lass
Is  beautiful place for love

You never can fly like a bird

If you want to fly 
First of all, learn to walk. 
If you learn to walk, 
Walk a lot before to fly. 
Always remember though 
You are not a bird. 

The oldies don't count with years. 
It is the experiences that makes somebody to feel old. 
The knowlege comes from inside the experiences 
But you can fly all you life in the sky of knowledge... 
And you never can fly like a bird.

Night time

The dark with glittering glow
Shining moonlight
Calm pleasant sleep
Of the world
Hoping for nextday
To woked up with a freshmind.
The lovely sound of breeze
As a lullaby for flowers
Trees as bed for birds
Through their hardwork
All the day along
Diminishes by the lovely sleep with nature music of breeze.

A lonely tree

At a road where the road is off
Where the lonesome is the road
At mid of nowhere
Lonely tree is standing there
Waiting no one but the dust
Dust of the passing time
Tarnish the color of this tree
This lonely tree to gray
Praying in this lonely place
For the passing van
A gray lonely van
For the lonely bird
Staying for while
When the nights
come
And days go
the lonely tree
praying there
When the war rage
And peace walking shy
The lonely tree
Praying for the peace
No one is waiting there
But the lonely tree
Is waiting the morning sun
Waiting the rain in may
Waiting wind from the north
Waiting when no one is waiting there
This lonely tree
Gave a name for this nameless place
The land of the lonely tree

Space is a Jungle

A jungle can be massively big and so deep
And possibly full of creatures that we'll never see
Likewise trillions of ants claim the biomass throne
Over two hundred species on any one tree alone
A fascinating insect by engineer and design
If it had intellect its brain may be as brilliant as mine
The chances of ants in a jungle to see us are very slim
Unless we explore nature and go looking them
Although most of us in the real world don't really care
We have Discovery Channels and we know that they are there
But we just live our lives and let nature take its coarse
An insects life can be really boring when you compare it to yours
But turn the tables around and lets talk about earth
In the middle of this jungle we call a vast universe
How arrogant of a species to think we're all alone
When we have identified other planets that we could call home
So something light years away is a species far more advanced
And to them our world is just a tree of different kinds of ants
Nothing for them to bother with, we have nothing they want
But like National Geographic from a distance they watch
Or maybe they are just waiting for us to mature as a race 
A primitive planet in the jungles of outer space

An Autumn Scene

A falling leaf,
a step in time,
the tune of my thoughts,
set in rhyme,

The autumn sun,
sets a scene,
through the shadow,
of the trees,
it spreads it's beam,

A ray of colours,
fills the sky,
up and over,
the hills so high,

A fresh watery breeze,
brushes my face,
as I stand and stare,
at this wonderful place,

This place is our home,
where we belong,
full of beauty,
and nature's song,

whenever we can,
we should embrace,
the gift of nature,
and all its grace.

Magical Sunset

As the day ends to rest
The sunset does its best
Setting on fire the lively waves
Colouring orange the nature he saves
its pure ancient glorious perfection.

The great ocean will receive
The burning sun who's going to leave.
Slowly comes the night
Devouring that magic light:
we are still suspended in a great delight.

To My Unborn

Ten little fingers, ten tiny toes.
What a burst of joy the thought of you unfolds.
Two pretty eyes, mommy’s pretty nose,
The heavens know I long to hug you close.
Your smiling face, your happy coos,
O’er gems and gold I’ll always chose.
A lad or lass, you’ll keep my lips,
Off the old block, the perfect chip.
A gift from God, my blessed gain
To keep me sane and ease this pain.
I’ll hold your hand, I’ll guide your feet
From ways of shame and Gog’s deceit.
I’ll keep you safe under my wings
And fly you far from harmful things.
You will not like some things I’ll do,
But bear in mind they’re shields for you.
I’ll love you true, a love I owe
And try to match the love I know
From Granny’s hands, its soothing glow,
The very hands that groomed me grow.
Your ‘semblance of no import, but then,
I pray you get your daddy’s pen.
This crazy world, we’re born and die,
And just before, we pause and sigh.
But then I’m glad, for when I’m gone,
A piece of me will carry on.

Volcano In Iceland

An eruption burst suddenly in Iceland.
Billowing smoke lingers in the air. 
Chaos has now increased on the earth,
Destroying the paths before us.
Everywhere, there is dust and ash.
Flaming, hot, lava bubbles constantly,
Gasping for new openings.
Heavy breathing and clogged pores now
Interrupt our daily flight patterns.
Jesters of nature playing their tricks,
Killing our spontaneity.
Lonely travelers wait for announcements.
Mountains of luggage pile up on runways,
Not knowing if they will ever arrive.
Obsidion shards fly through the sky, falling on
Plants suffocating under the pressure.
Quickly, we search for answers, wanting solutions, but
Rescued only by mother nature when she is ready.
Sensations of loss and captivity hold us ransom.
Trusting no one to tell us the truth, we
Understand very little.
Volumous, smelly, clouds engulf us.
Willful displays only frustrate our existence.
Xenophobic fears dissipate as we are all affected.
Yesterday, we knew what time it was, and today, this
Zenith in the sky has cancelled all our plans.

The Atlantic Blues



Along its bounty shores i stand,
Watching its sandy beach so grand.
Then hither comes its lovely wind,
The page of love so clear and clean,
From the atlantic,blue, and calm.

The mer, with bubbles straight from god,
That seem themselves to praise the lord
With each coming wave from far,
Breathing inspiration from the stars;
Tha atlantic, blue, singing psalms.

A broken heart? See! The blue mer;
Its foamy deep, its vastness rare,
That appeases the troubled mind,
To bring peace you can only find
In the atlantic’s soothing balm.

A hungry mind? Just roam its beach,
And watch its waves within your reach.
Then you would get to understand,
Like all other mysteries of our land,
The atlantic flows from god’s palms!

Full spectrum of consciosness to raise the contempt 
Of the ever changing journey
A pathway into the doors of harmony

A regiment of desighn, that embodies
Green vastness, rolling thunder, and blue waters
The mountains overflow with the eagles wing, in the open shores
I see a shimmer in the prismed glass of the ancients
reflecting on the smoky distance, of a new tomarrow.


PLEASE TRY TO GO BEYOND EARTH HOUR
MY PLEDGE I WILL LOVE THE EARTH AND ALL OF GODS CREATION.

Loving Tennessee Spring

White trees-dogwood,
Purple trees-redbud,
Magnify beauty
As only Tennessee could.

Yellow jonquil-slips
Colorful tulip-cups
Enhance Tennessee
As spring interrupts.

The chill of the ice-white
The winter wind-long
Gives way in Tennessee
To a palette of song.

Oaks in squirrel-scurry
And birdcall-ring
Announce that  there's nothing
Like Tennessee in the spring.

I was not afraid that my life one time will finish.
I am afraid that it will never start.

The joy of the journey that you never live

Luck speaks through nature and its spirits,
gracefully guarded along China's Great Wall.

Witness faded colors of green inside the fog windfall

The luckiest of dragons fly
with patterned wings of peace.

While the pink hummingbird singing along it's nest.

Do you feel the freedom even when it is bare?
Will you dance on Monday's morn till no end?

Oh the sounds of the River Dale,
Melodically trumps in one's dream,
Peaceful of serenity conquers every tale,
Together they sing a beautiful hymn.

Oh the anointed love from Green Gables,
Mesmerized in the heart of loving couples,
The magical song that binds two together,
Will forever make them cherish one another.

The Dying Banksia tree

The Dying Banksia tree.

The garden be a sad old place
The tree is slowly dying
My lovely ancient Banksia tree
Why look at it, it’s crying!
We built our house around this tree
It was a blessing from the wild
Now, too much water’s taken toll
And cramped the poor tree’s style

The parrots, they come to this tree
Galah’s, Corellas, too
Came here to eat it’s candle fruits
They’d come the whole day through
But now my lady slowly dies
These birds no longer call
I loved my grand old Banksia tree
At times life can be cruel.

I’m going to cut it’s branches off
And let it stand in death
Then grow some climbers up it’s form
So up it’s trunk they’ll spread.
Yes, morning Glory, scented jasmine
Honeysuckle too
Will clamber up this old dead tree
And make it look brand new.

ALPINE SCENERY

Across the Swiss and Austrian Alps
brutal gusts steadly blow,
calling for heavy snowflakes
dancing as lost butterflies...
falling as summer's lonely stars.
Ginger bread smells good,
honey in tea is superb;
I inhale the steamy swirls that
jackrabbits love to smell.
Kaffe Klatsch is strong
lurching through their nostrils,
making them too hyper.
Northern Italy's wooden shacks
over the wide, frigid vallies...
point to a warmer South
quiet only at evening or night.
Roam as deer on snowy slopes,
stunning is the alpine scenery:
trees as tall as redwoods
ululate louder than hungry wolves...
vulnerable to snowdrifts' attacks. 
Watch the skiers having fun,
xelophones making music,
yummy polenta being eaten...
zealous alpinists singing.

MY FAITH

When i was schooling,
one of my friends,
taught me about God,
and his power.


I doubted the presence of  God
in my life until i discovered,
that really is alive,
ever present and listens every time,
when we pray.

During my first job,
i found a hen's head in my chair,
i feared and cried,
but  i prayed to him,
because i know that God is supreme,
and stronger than satan

No one in the world,
can bewitch my work,
because my faith protects my life,
and keeps me going.
What about you?

A Starry Night

Among those twinkling stars,
One just finds me and stares.
Among the many crowded people,
I look at the star through the water ripple.

As the night goes on and on,
The star uses its shine to don,
In order to hide from me,
As I disappear into the sea.

I wander how we will ever,
Again come to see each other,
By the night of this very river.

In a single star, I find memories.
In a single star, I find love.
In a single star, I find loneliness.
In a single star, I find respect.
In a single star, I find poetry.
In a single star, I find my mother, my only mother.

Some call this Life

Don't search for apples anymore.
The apple tree has died.
It gave all the apples that it had.
Now it is nothing more than a piece of wood.
Nobody has interest for an apple tree without apples.
Nobody gives it some water to survive.
Not even the dry mother earth.
Nobody.
This is the fate for every apple tree that has nothing to give.
This is the fate of everything alive being on the earth.
This is the law of nature.

THE RAINBOWS OF AUTUMN

Autumn leaves cling high in the tree tops
As acorns drop to the bottom.
Summer’s hot days have long since gone
Replaced by the coolness of Autumn.

The roses and mums are still in bloom
For the nights are brisk without frost.
Halloween is just around the corner
With the brilliance of Autumn soon lost.

Dead leaves create the rainbows of Autumn
Red, yellow, orange, purple and brown.
Soon winter shall blanket nature in white
As the seeds of summer lie dormant in the ground.

Wild geese call as they fly in formation
Across the star filled skies of night.
The moon seems larger and has more color
Reflecting with wonder its light.

Autumn for most, is their favorite time of year
Till winter passes and it’s spring once more.
A time of harvest and transformation
As the light of day is shorter than before.

How many Autumns have come and gone
Only God could tell the story.
How many Autumns have we left to enjoy
With their fulfillment, radiance and glory.

I am leaving now; it is time to say goodbye.

A luminous sun steadily glaring
Becomes a phenomenal scene
Can blind the observer's eyes
Diffusing its light very quickly
Effulgent as a winter's moon
Fascinating as the calmest sea
Grand illusion of the unreachable Paradise
Herald of the unconquerable skies
Image of the painter's mind
Jocular clouds turning gold
Key West resembles a desert
Lambent dense buckwheat
Masterpiece of His handiwork
Nascent serenity exalted by bells
October's imminent farewell
Piercing the peace of a perfect morning
Quotidian prayer recited by the fisherman
Ravishing his sincere soul
Satisfying the unwavering belief
Tending to instill more faith
Unimpeachable as integrity
Veracious as Christ himself
Wayward as untamed wind

HOPE IN DESPAIR

Why feel so upset and look so glum,
Just because a few things in life went wrong,
Troubles will go and troubles will come,
They are there just to make us strong!
 
Look at the wonderful nature all around, 
a great example of a cheerful fight against all worry,
Although in threads of care nature too is wound,
Yet each component of it is worth some individual glory.
 
When the power of storm casts on the Earth a gloom,
And the world is enveloped in a dull darkness,
The sun suddenly spins out on its invisible loom,
A thin ray of sunshine which spreads some brightness.
 
The seemingly carefree birds so happily keep flying,
Chirping and singing cheerful songs with no mortal fear,
Oblivious of the snare & the trap & the net & the birdlime,
Never hopeless for they know that there is hope even in despair!
 
Each part of nature has a message to convey,
So learn from the nature all around,
Even the moon peeping from behind the cloud seems to say,
‘Fear not friend for there is light behind every cloud!’

THE OCEAN'S ALLURING COLOR

ABC-THE OCEAN'S ALLURING COLOR

The ocean's alluring color
may appear to be aqua or blue;
it changes with the density of light,
and all its dazzling beauty it can endue
to make an amazing sight!


ACROSTIC--HOW BEAUTIFUL!

Hurtle as agile seagulls do 
Over its rageful waves glide
Westward purple clouds meet a dawning sun
Beware of the furious wind when it howls
Eeastward the sloggish moon approches
Another night filled with mysterious sounds
Utter nothing to yourself, move forward
Trees hide owls with their scary coos
Inside the moon's sphere many faces appear 
Funny how they look staring at the bright ocean
Urging it to turn dark, so they can easily rule
Long enough to captivate the human mind! 


CLASSIC ALLITERATION-CREATION OF THE OCEAN

Once the ocean was a huge valley,
then God made it rain...it wasn't folly;
for countless days and nights it came down
as it was filled to capacity an early dawn.


But there's was something missing,
and God thought, " Beautiful fishes I will place into it:
from big to small to give it life everlasting."
So that divine thought gave the Earth another aspect!

The orange horizon embraced the sun tenderly

Dashing into the swaying forest to put-up for the night
Puffing clouds chased each other up the sky

And nothing was the same again that has been

Mother Natures Waltz

Standing in front of my picture window
after drawing open the drapes
I see the sun stretching over the horizon
showing off mother natures shapes

before i knew it i was looking out over the valley
watching the night settle in
As the sun falls deep below the mountain tops
yet another day comes to an end

It was like seeing it all for the very first time
and i found it hard to turn and look away
From all the wonderous sights
that start and end each day

As i reach across the table 
to turn up the oil lamp light 
I felt a scence of ease
When i realized i could watch it all again 
all through the day and night

Lurking over the mountain.

There she is,
But this time more dark.

A veil in front of her face.

Her eyes without the spark.

In the spring will it be a trooper
With the instinct for survival all over

Ode to Snow

Ode to Snow 


 

From the cloudy sky

It floats softly down,

Drifting silently by

Quickly blankets the ground.

 

On skeletal tree limbs and evergreen boughs

Covering dead leaves and pine cones,

As thick as weight will allow

The arms of branches take the burden now.

 

It dances on errant breezes

Or flies swiftly to the side,

The wind will carry it where it pleases

Coming down heavy now, spreading far and wide.

 

I walk among its chilliness

And wonder if it knows,

That it brings me such happiness

The peacefullness of snow.

 

Soon spring will come upon the land

Winter storm clouds will part,

Drifty mountains once so grand

Will quickly start to melt.

 

Then rain will wash the snow away

Rebirth of blossoms, new growing grass

Summer flies quickly by, Autumn seems only a day

All too soon the stormy snow clouds will amass.

Summer Sunset

Summer sunset in the West,
Is among one of the best
That I was lucky enough to see,
As I walked along leisurely
And when the colors faded away,
It was a lovely end to a great day

TAKE SOME STEPS


                       TAKE SOME STEPS




                 Let not fear control your life
                regardless of any strife or figurative
                knife and be neither a puppet nor a victim
                of any kind

                 If a talking horse and his owner can
                overcome fear with out beer anyone can-
                there is no need for a pan but to push 
                forward

                 The proverbial match has been lit
                you have to hatch a plan soon and take
                some steps or burn-the best decisions
                are never made hastily nor selfishly

Moon At Noon!

I was lying leisurely on my back
on mid-morn Monday of May second
My gaze and glance heavenbound
The cloud forming into mountainous sheet, i observed
And disintegrating, like surf they dissolved
Disintegrated but in characters so hieroglyphics
Like Michelangelo's renaissance sculptural acrobatics
Through it i  had a permitted view
Of the noon by its arc in lieu
Of its fullnes, without its alluring presence
Stripped of its illumining essence
Appeared grey, blue and off-white
Stood plainly and passively tight
Like a lone spectator in an arena
So, the moon at noon seen but no sooner
Gone, like a spy that was almost unmasked
In consipracy by the uniting cloud concealed



This poem intends to capture a moment of passing day in time in rhyme for 
posterity, May 22nd 2005.

Wave Alone

Resist putting the clamps on thoughts of a sick demeanor
Let them flow uninhibited by malice, shame or pride
Watch them slink and diffuse and leave the temple cleaner
Pain comes to the temple to be translated to neutrality
Claws inscribe the walls inflamed
Black-hole sheen tempts agony to seep from the cracks
Gravity weeps rejuvened veins
Refracted solidity crushed destruction 
Built Self resisted Earth's waking function
Gripping familiar while splinters shudder
Shivering knowing and reach for reflecting quiver
Turn to One's Being and see each other
Arrow extracts itself from seed
Fits like a key in aerial matrimony
The eye sees it coming as it pierces ether
And beneath sheerity beholds the Believer
As an ice chip on a smoldered iron will pool
Truth will condense and swell lagoon
Enriched deep soils hum of roots and web and stone
Moth on ram's horn angled to the Moon
Unspool the woven tangle of nerves
Tips fasten to the grasshopper's intricate melody
Remedy smoothes spirit, mind and bone
Swerves distilled to stillness alone

Victorious hummingbird

Hummingbird flitting 
to and fro
whizzed sound 
of beautiful colors
making my heart flutter fast
like wings of the beauty I watch

holding still 
in gentle breeze
poised graceful midair
the warm air pressing

As he drinks sweet nectar
smoothly he hovers 
drinking with greed

added to picture of delight
another hummingbird appears
suddenly diving aggressive
in his plight to quench thirst

circles do these two go!
fighting for treasured feast
but the wisest award goes to
patient little one on the side

swooping around chaos
eating peacefully

while the others fight

Autumn Snow

In Michigan we received Autumn Snow,
You'd think that we would already know
That our weather can be really severe,
During any certain time of the year
This just makes me miss Autumn more,
Cause the changing colors I do so adore
I'm hoping Autumn will reappear,
For it only comes but once a year

 What a gorgous morning, 
I'll have to say, 
a wonderful start, 
to a beautiful day, 
with the sky so blue, 
and the glistening snow, 
with it's shades of hue, 
it may be only 20 degrees, 
but the spectacular view, 
will surely please, 
with the thundering rockies, 
and enormous pines, 
and the wild animals, 
of every kind,

you'll realize it,

rain

All around rain drops fall
Beneath my feet is cold and wet
Count the puddles on the ground
Dance to the sound of the storm
Every second at least a thousand drops fall
Far away I hear it roar
Getting closer by the minute
How it soothes my soul
It makes me feel relaxed inside
Just feel the wind in your hair
Keep listening
Loud thunder roars in my ears
More and more rain fall
Now the clouds are clearing up
Over the hills I see sunshine
Place your mind in peacefulness

Wildfire

The hiss and snap of a lethal snake
Crackling through the sky, through the forest he rakes
Down all of the trees, plants, and innocent creatures
Burning them horribly to grotesque features
Red, orange, and yellow consuming the earth
Taking the forest away from its worth
And leaving behind the tattered old remains
The snake has won, the land in its chains
Of greed, power, the snake's lifelong slave
For when all hope is gone, there’s no room for the brave.

Food to eternity

And you small human being who really will know that you were here? 
After three generations you will be deleted from human memories. 
Who will know that you have passed from the earth?  
Time is the killer of  all the memories.
And the natur is your killer. 

Don't try to understand. 
Try to give, 
love, 
and share.
Life is always bitter sweet 
get only what gives to you. 
If you want more you will never be happy. 

Your life is the beginning from your end. 
Nature does not recognize you as personality, 
You are a piece of the puzzle of life. 
You are not all the puzzle. 
Your mission is just  to give life and food to eternity. 
And the eternity is the reason that you exist.

THE MAGIC OF SLEEP



Sleep makes us happier, healthier and sexier
Though millions of Americans suffer without.
24 –7 = TV, sports, video games and deadlines
Make us wonder what life is about.

Cigarettes, booze, coffee and the new born
Can all rob you of  precious sleep.
Being broken hearted over someone lost
As you lie without them and weep.

Multitudes pop the little green butterfly
Or some other pill to obtain precious rest.
Making time for prayer, love, laughter and song
Improve our sleep to endure God’s test .

While sleeping we dream of now and here after
The good, the bad and who we wish not to be.
Passing our burdens to the hands of God
Who fashioned all we hear, breath and see.

The magic of sleep sustains the heart beats of life
Our ability to reason, overcome and succeed.
Without its presence, we wither on the vine
Victims of exhaustion, worry and greed.

Moon Mirror

The sun, going about her daily chores, 
glimpses a new star in the sky, 
one smaller than herself, 
yet strangely familiar.

Used to catching her image first in puddles, 
then growing larger in lakes, 
she at first only sees a stranger, 
then catches herself 

spread in the moon's reflection 
across thousands of miles of sky.
Hypnotized by the beauty 
of this strange new view of herself, 

she can't ignore it, 
sneaking looks time after time; 
she can't take her eyes off herself.
Daily, as the moon moves about in the sky, 

the sun catches tantalizing glimpses 
of herself from multiple angles. 
By then, the sun imagines herself to have 
the moon's full attention, 

claiming it as her mirror.
Like Snow White's wicked stepmother, 
the sun asks this mirror repeatedly, 
methodically, almost hypnotically, 

"Who is the fairest of them all?"
The moon answers all questions 
obliquely, 
bringing the sun back time and again, 
puppet on a string 
seeking a definitive answer.

By day, the moon untangles 
its strings of moonlight, 
puts out its nets.

Their dialog moves sideways; 
the sun's questions, always direct, 
glance off the moon; 
the moon's answers slip around behind it 
as the sun tries to get a better look 
at what the moon might be saying.

Who was created in whose image? 
Which came first, 
the chicken, the egg, or the yolk, 
small sun caught up in the quicksilver lies 
of albumen?

MY FAVORITE POET

MY FAVORITE POET


My favorite poet is God above
Who gives Earth its rhythm and rhyme.
Not pied pipers of misguided souls
Who promote distrust, hatred and crime.

Poetry is nature serenading in song
The peaceful roar of the oceans waves.
The wind through the trees and over the hills
And the flowers in the fields by the graves.

The sound of rain as it waters the thirsty
The songs of children at play in the park.
The far off rumble of trains or thunder
As they pass through the night in the dark.

The joy of our babies first words and steps
The passion of life with its heroes and clowns.
The on going struggle to survive our sins
As we proliferate in hamlets and towns.

My favorite poet is our father of love
Who was first to know us before birth.
His poetry prolongs every thing we love
As his deliverance gives life its worth.

In The Distance

As I gaze in the distance of the field, 
a field of wildflowers and thickets. 
I see in the distance, a blemish of temper 
and scorch. The harmony of the field is 
plagued and tarnished by raged flame. As 
the flames makes it way through the field, 
devouring everything in it's path. 
The wildflowers, wilted and scorched, torn 
in their own beauty. The thickets, lay 
blistered, weeping in sorrow. The sky brings 
a cool mist of rain that has justice in it's 
nature. For the field of wildflowers and 
thickets are in harmony from the rage. The 
dance of the wildflower and thickets, was 
the beauty that I have gazed at, in the distance.

Our barn sits 
so quiet and empty 
yet as I stand inside listening
it starts to talk softly
whispering of yesterday

telling me of past times
how proudly it stood as it was made
so tall and grande

it speaks to me of the many people 
it has held sheltered 
throughout the years
of smiles and laughter
on the floor all the tears
that have fallen

o how many people inside
some losing themselves
others finding themselves
hearts beating
souls yearning
friends gathering

Reincarnation (Circle of death)

The leopard crouching close to earth 
While stalking, dirt smells so divine
Eyes fixed through grass, the pounce, return 
…up top with golden shrine
When I come back wish I could be 
A graceful creature so in sync
O death please hurry, come to me
Before they go extinct

Law of nature, law of man
Survival is a killing game
A part that no-one understands
Insanely human, inhumane
We’re born with will and strength to choose
Ignoring all of nature’s signs
Abusing power, win or loose
Circle of death means turning tides

When you return to earth one day
At the bottom of the food chain
You’ve turned from hunter into prey
Death haunting shrinking plains
Ask not why, ask not how
Balance must be preserved
To cheat death, stop the killing now
Or your fate will be well deserved

New Beginning's

The night closes and the dawn begins. 
Dew falls from the morning sky, 
covering what lies beneath. 
The wind blows softly, 
as the clouds roll through the sky. 
The sun peeking back and forth from the 
horizon and the nature of the sky. 
The fields, now glistening with the dew 
that sets the new beginning. 
The flowers drink of the dew that lies 
on thier pedals. 
New growth begins from all forms of nature. 
And now the new beginning has begun.

The Storm



After the five days of sweltering heat
I look up from my writings
as the sunlight falters 
and the skies begin to darken.

I step outside and gaze
at the lowering clouds,
feeling the wind freshen and gust,
tussling my hair and teasing the fallen Autumn leaves.

And as I stand before the gathering darkness
I hear afar the first rumble
of the approaching storm,
invisibly rolling towards me.

I count slowly upwards, as a child would,
afraid and cowering under the covers.
One...Two... and at six
the thunder comes again, but nearer now.

Still no rain, but the skies
are darker, heavy and oppressive.
eager to unburden themselves
of their burgeoning cargo.

At four the thunder sounds again
and following the receding echoes
a brilliant flash of incandescent light.
For now the lightning comes.

I flinch automatically as the darkness spits asunder.
Torn apart by a jagged blazing bolt.
then suddenly it is gone
and the night surges backwards like an irresistible tide.

Unable to contain themselves longer, the clouds empty
and rain falls in sheeting waves, slowly at first
then driving hard against the ground,
creating a myriad tiny streams that spread, mingle and pool.

The storm is here now, overhead and immensely powerful.
Thunder cracks, seeming to explode above me, and I realise that I am afraid.
Apprehension wars with the intense joy and excitement 
coursing through my veins. I stand silent.

In the face of nature one feels so small, 
insignificant against the colossal majesty of the skies.
My heart sours as the heavens rage.
My thoughts scattered and blown apart.

It may have been a minute or an hour I stood there,
drenched and shivering and oblivious of either.
I felt myself slowly returning as the storm receded.
The rain gone, the wind dropping and the skies clear.

Was the storm the realisation of the turmoil of my heart ?
Was it real or just my imaginings ?
I do not know, but I now I feel scoured clean, pure, reborn almost.
I see my way before me as I walk back into my life

ABC Animal Twist

ABC Animal Twist

Adored and diverse, life thrives on earth; each day nature sees new births.
Big and small, abundantly in seas and trees; great beauty breathes.
Chameleons, cats, corn snakes, and coots, survive great threats in life's pursuit. 
Delightful dragonflies from dart frogs duck; drake-crakes scoot upon lakes. 
Eagles and egrets soar blue skies; an elephant endangered cries.
Fabulous fauna: fairy flies, and deer upon flora feed needs.
Graceful purple gallinules, young goats, and giraffes bring joyful laughs.
Hag-fish, halibut and hammerhead birds…birds?  Yes!  Nature preserves.
Insects and ibis work their charm; crusty isopods cause alarm.
Jaguars enjoy tasty meals; leftovers are the jackals' appeal.  
Kiwi that fruits, kiwi that flies both species in New Zealand resides.
Living world the Creator made; since the beginning, wisdom stayed.
Matchless miracles, wonders, and births together blessed on our earth.
Never alone, no matter where, life exists here, there, everywhere.
Oh how beautiful, artfully wonderful, God-primed blissful place.
Planet earth and outer space together share a glorious race.
Question not; God loves this world. See creations glide, slide, swim, and swirl. 
Reverence life; it was made with love; He still watches from up above.
Still breezes and sunshine please; sturgeon, shrimp, salmon, and sardines feed; 
Termites, thrashers, terriers and teal find niches that have appeal.
Under God's skies, the umbrella birds fly.   Man ponders; God replies.
Venomous snakes make rodents quake; Vultures clean up for good health's sake.
Weeping willows watch wolves whelp; chirping yellow warblers sing to elves.
X-Ray fish known since early days leave modern man looking amazed.
Yosemite toads, yetis, and yaks live on the lands without lack. 
Zoology on earth from alligators to zorilla zings!

THE FUNNY FRIENDS

John and Joyce

but they love themselves
like flies on meat.

Every  time  they  meet
they  feel  so great
with a lot of joy.

John stands up
straightly  like  a  nail
to  eat  his  fruit  hidden 
all  the  times.

He  twist  his head
left  and  right
when   his  plan 
it's to  penetrate  her cave.

What  makes  us laugh
he's  really  a blind man
without   single eye
up and down.

But on his time,
he can't  miss the road
although it's  dark.
Oh,what a funny love they have!






he  can't  miss  the   road
although  it's   dark !

Joyce  and John
they   love themselves
and  what  separates  them
it   will  be only  death.


Really  their  love
it's  a gift  from  God
but  their  neighbor Dan
he  separated from  them
according to the way  he behave
to  produce  a  dirty  food
that  attracts flies.

A Pool of Burning Fire

As I look into
the pool of burning fire,
I can hear
the hiss of the motionless creature inside.
I can see
the swollen embers
scortch the dark starry sky,
the miniature blazing flames
churn the face of the earth.
You can feel the weep of Mother-Nature,
as the burning coals scar her skin.
The blistering warmth catches your body.
There is no hope,
but the scar to get bigger.

Renewal

Without a doubt, I am grateful
To experience and to be alive
And to drink in this resplendence 
That allows my spirit to revive.

Oh, how I have patiently waited
To lay down under blue sky,
Watching virgin white clouds
As they lazily meander by.

I am gratified to know that
The days are growing long
As I smell blossoming lilacs,
With their fragrance so strong.

It is the simple things in life
That I cherish so very much,
Like the fresh scents of spring
And the Sun’s warming touch.

What a miraculous thing it is
This wonderful time of rebirth,
For this season affects us all
On this planet, we call earth.

To the right the city, I do see.
What a pity to the green trees. 
Cars and trucks the sound do pound their ears away.
To the left the woods I see. A deer standing as still as could be.
As if he belongs there at the edge.
Over the rail in front is the pool for a place to get real cool.
My deck the place I want to be. How about you?

VOYAGE

Clouds had refused to part.
A fractured moon was walking in dismay
stroking the gazing stars.

Cornwhite belonging of ashes was
to fire, beloved sky was enchanted
with water ceremony
as a sign of gratitude to earth.

The wind decided to reverse the clock
and navigate in trees of waxing summer
blowing yellow crystals of sulphur.

A red admiral lands on a lone marigold
with detachment, surveys pollen, pie-eyed,
dangles, tilting a nod, emerges for another sortie.

If there was an action, I think in between:
live with it in fire of mind. The voyage
begins when the song of eternity starts.

Montaulk Point

Montauk Point 

Ridge sides slope  amidst  the ancient seas 
grass sown seed from storm winded shores 
lighthouse beacons light the shores 
laden seaweeds on ragged rocks meet the crashing seas 
driftwood grey smoothed lines in withered age 
lay barren on sheltered coves 

Ochre sand dunes Waves of gold green beach grass 
sway against the winded tides 
sand pipers dance on rushing surf and leave their 
footprints on moistened sand 
amidst nesting shells do perch 
where sea sand meets the rhythm of the tides 

The morning break and nights that fall upon the earthly shores 
lights of misted spray of ocean winds that wake the day 
eons of ages through forces of time 
spontaneous movement it rides 
have shaped its shores through storms   
and ebbs and flows of time   

Where ripples wash and spray it clean 
the lineless lines castaway in the sediments of endless days 
the chorus sounds to life 
bubbling froths from shinning rocks 
multitude mosaics of algae left by tide 

The sound of rhythms of breaking waves 
the silent voice of whispering beach grass on the wind  
the smells of briny salt and wildflower air 
that wakes the senses 

Pristine clean fresh alive 
draws us back to where all began 
seagulls wail and tremble in the air 
through wind that moves like breath 

Looking out seaward bound 
blue gray leviathans breed amidst the blue green sea 
water gushes from their spouts and belly flops in cheerful play 
on a summers day

MOVED EARTH

In unthinkable death how do you carry
yourself ?
An intimate dialogue with death
Fearless, undaunted .
I admire your grit.

One thin blade, one silken noose
but you want to face the bullet
straight in your heart.
The death should come instantly, because you
want to be witness, your head falling with
grace.

Why did you chase death
whistling on the beach,
taunting the eccentric sky
like muted revenge.

The grave will be too small for you
Your legs sticking out.
Lime burning your eyes.
Turning back the grave diggers may
not like to face your moved earth !

A HOT PATCH

All the wayward words
mock me for inadequacy.
I remain detached from meaning, 
emigrating to eloquence of wordless solitude.
The hymen breaks.
Dumb poems cry. I don’t want to be buried
in ruins of daydreams.

Sandstorms have a strange melancholy, holocaust.
A legitimate uprooting of faith. 
Sometimes I feel a hot patch
of sun on my face.
One moon away was my cool,
abode in a green painting,
but the frost never melted.


This darkness is only companion, 
I will talk to winds.
The comments on riddles will continue. 
A selection of memories,
will make my meditation.
The friction in history was shame.
May be love will win.

-- Distant Shores

Twilight song of a cuckoo
taps the window softly.
Gothic tree and drooping sky
humble my thoughts.
Past was me.
I will know then
why your hills turned away my clouds
by shifting sands.

Was it a colossal guilt of tomorrow?
Which never wanted to become present
and enter my house.
But my memory was sharp
and days were numbered.

I wanted to invite the death discreetly
while praising the life and listening to birds
without dropping the history
from my crooked fingers.

Between yourself and myself
a sea was surreptitiously raging.
The waves were dividing the shores.

THE TRUTH FOREVER

There's a secret in the world,
that needs to solve 
before the sun sets.

It's good to inform the world,
what's good and what's bad
to live in peace.

In the community we live,
everything is good
but depends on how the demand it is.

The secret in life,
begins at home and dominate the world
as the wise say.

That's the reason why,
cultures are good
and we should keep them
the whites and the blacks.

WISDOM

Wisdom is not age,
but really a gift,
incredible in life.

Wisdom is not wealth,
but  a  source of joy,

In the communities we live,
they need a wise man,
who can assist  the world.

Wisdom is not words,
and really  not  school,

SONG ABOVE THE SORROW

I missed the heartbeats for a vessel of stars, 
while death was always near, 
circling the house.

The network of sorrow, 
beams to world.
Can symmetry of pain 
provide a plank for the sinking mind?
I cannot hold the curling smoke of a tainted fact. 
The fear, the anxiety, 
empowers the animal look.

An uncovered seed sprouting into 
tiny root on my hand
starts a conspiracy. 
People talk about the meditation,
and senile body shrinks. 
There is a song above the sorrow and
freedom from the assassination of ideologies. 
Hold my arm !

FEET OF CLAY

Who am I to know 
the abstract silence
when you drink the moonlight all alone ? 
The black toes of a dying woman 
haunt me in a stream 
of white shrouds. A night
of shattering perceptions, 
defaults and ignorance. 
Time bomb was ticking.

It had been troubling me 
the betrayals in night
mothering a vegetable past. 
A single finger defines 
the authority of future.
I traced the proud shadows of a god for, 
a useless reference of illegible wisdom,
untold misery of green waves mirrored in sky.

For extracting death 
from life at every step
I knew the answer. 
Dying was not a private thing. 
The truth and the path would die.
How you dreaded the closed doors? 
The explicit fear of drowning 
in beliefs with brothers of 
sorrow and feet of clay.

TEMPLE OF HOPE

Long night will start the pincer movement;
pyrexia is rising.
Something like an extraterrestrial hand
digs deep in the mind to open the tomb
to unravel the tragedy of nuts and bolts
which could not fix
the mutation of the hour of death.

Dark blinking lashes of soul
measures the cliffs of silence
and then pours the hot red 
vermilion in parted wisdom of sky.

The clang of bones again penetrates
the liver. The green flaming jelly of
innocent bellies.
The hyacinth is choking the village pond
hiding the corpses of precious flowers
with green blood.

One day foundation of skeletons will build a 
temple of hope.

FAULT LINE

The template had the fault,
I was buried alive.
Brick by brick they erected the cell
around me.
I could see only the reflection
of a moon at night
in my glass of water.

During the day sun peeped through the cracks,
was hurting and very disturbing,
forming a skull and crossed bones
on the walls.

I watched a piece of sky
as a hub of pallisades.
I planted a word in that hole.

After one seed, there were many
echoes. Starting in the distant hills.
I was rising in red fog.

STRIPPING TO THE BONES

Now me, now not, 
a thought is always there. 
My genes navigate on collapsing walls, 
words, dark mind, broken dreams. 
But thought is always there. 
I hold on firmly to sounds, 
voices, tongues, 
the thought is always there.

Brain goes into a nameless friction, 
of aimless voyage
I rediscover the myth and abandon the zone of thoughts. 
Distance becomes a wailing music. 
Sitting between the flesh and bones
I recognise the relic of a window.


Let us drop the years, 
become timeless, empty and hollow.
Egocentric wind violates the lungs. 
We cannot sing in praise of earth. 
I walk through the body, 
stripping to the bones, to find the seeds. 
I refuse to pluck the flowers.

STENCH OF DEATH

Why do you run away 
from the primordial fear?
Of tight emptiness?
A shapeless entity of drifting psyche?
This was your home 
where carcasses of cliches 
hang from the doors of wisdom. 
Unplanted seeds 
of vacant connotations.

Inch by inch you were eating 
your prophetic pauses
salt had become tasteless. 
Counting the kisses of 
moths on the screen 
a candle burned furiously. 
I never picked the colors of cloud, of rain, of blood.

What becomes of happening, 
of being, of reaching?
The stones of truth are very sharp. 
The roads were conspiring 
insects collecting, under the surface. 
Circling winds had 
a heavy stench of death 
but words were very intelligent.

It was dull green

foliage of a tall weeping Ashoka.

All day the sun had beaten down mercilessly
At night, under the shimmering shade of stars
somebody left a body of a  child
wrapped in  a red rag at the foot of the giant, 
where the roots were jutting out from earth like a basket
to receive a birthday present.

A gift from a veiled shame.
Shutting out the breath,
a purple death by asphyxiation
A pink doll: mist draped in dew and flower.
Death was no stranger

Stone to stone,

unsettles the saints.
Give me your hand,

An abstract idea joins
the postures of different conflicts,

After great sufferings
only proverbs give a soothing effect.

Images blur, misspent energy 
distorts the palisade  of love.
Perhaps history repeats itself. 
Moon cries at midnight
looking beneath the soft clouds, 
to follow eternity.
Past & present are losers. 
The trustworthy future 
does not hold any promise.

Again questioning brings 
the numbness on surface.
The agony of realization, 
moves away from just mistakes.
It is hard to smash

 I am alone in the heat

Recalling memories was difficult.
I presume, today was not my day.
Theme uprooted, I stood for the branches,

Do I see more than what was needed?

Only eyes to eyes speak without words, sound,

All the flowers have shed their petals. Now

Time leaves the questions in air, suspended.
You have to find the answers, yourself, in the

To become or not to become a renegade,
or to die or not to die for a semi-god ?
These were some of the questions
thrown at an incomplete script.

What elevated you to a celebrity ?
Your hump or deep wrinkled groans ?
Age is abating, abattoir is empty.
Exile from the past is over.
When you intend to comeback to childhood
and become a simple star ?

Everything into turn with obsolete gossip.
A patch of sunlight becomes a costly exposure
Bones are entwined in eternal cuddle.

BLISS OF ANOTHER SELF

Must we go beyond

The flight from the edge of circles
leaves the dust behind.
Inside our wings are embedded 
the years. In the sky 
we must part. The parallax is here.
I will pursue the centuries 
circling over the memories.


A single page flutters, 
rest of the book is silent
not skillful technicality,
only a smuggled simplicity.
I fall into the stillness 
of a ceaseless motion, 
fall into yesterday. 
The feeling to put out
the bright candle is very strong. 
A burning solitude.

Face to face with motionless dream
the wide space between letters unfold a meaning.

for whom you are aiming?

The holy man on road
fakes,
crushing the grass
lilies getting flattened under the giant wheels.

Moving an bloody toes
festering heels
carrying the sacred earth under the nails
all night.
peeling the time, throwing the skn
and waiting
for the dust to settle.

THE MANGO TREE

I'm proud of my life,
and all what iam,
the friend of every one.

I just stand on the way,
and attract every thing,
the birds and the flies.

Really am the boss,
who can't struggle a lot
to get what to eat.

When rain falls,
all the flying birds,
use me as a shade.

I'm proud of my life,
i can't get sick,
years and years.

SUICIDES

In despair,
beyond-pain, I will watch my dreams
in rimless eyes of wet faces.

The lake had been sending back
the white and black shrouds
everyday.

They were jumping one by one
old and young,
from the twisted planks
holding geraniums.

A warm prayer on the lips,
what was left worth enduring ?
The innocence, the guilt, the shame ?

Clinging to bloody lumps of happiness
who is going to have a last laugh ?
Time is breathing gloom,
body is attached to a pole.

TALKING TREE

He was worried about the thumbs,
amputated,
so that he could not write
or fire a gun.

The last convulsion was a drag
every pain was going to be memorable,
he etched on translucent arms.

Between the shouts a silent sob
scatters the rainbow.
The writing on the lips becomes invisible.

Sweetheart, don’t go into the rain.
Clouds are wounded and sky is dark.
Shadow of talking tree is becoming longer.

RESURRECTION

There were two shades of truth. 
All the facts were true
and all the facts were wrong. 
Reality was always drowning in a shapeless pit, 
confusion reigned between two statements, because
import was nil and walking
amidst ruins was painful.

Worthless conflicts hover in the night.
Exchanging the dialogues with death start in vain.
I go back to my fire and burn my thoughts. 
The world around me is adjourned,
sine die for the sake of peace. 
I became what I am.

You wait for a whole life to tell the truth,
and then die for it.
My god was crazy. 
He did’t ask me for a prayer because he was me, 
and there lies the absolute. 
For umpteen times I felt the need of, 
resurrection from the dead lies.

ON THE JAGGED STONES

Leaving the faint traces,
of some diluted thoughts
You empty yourself completely.
Poverty and shame without an arithmetic, 
is the poetry of life. 
Using the body instead of words. 
Always needing currency,
to open the doors of clarity.

Naked without skin,
we survive on crumbs of charity.
Lending our organs to develop,
an order of mortality. 
I refuse to taste the bitterness, 
preserve my sanctity, 
go for another version of god, 
thinking, how to think.

For the inward freedom,
I forsake safety pins,
walking, bleeding on the jagged stones. 
Pain of realization is deeper,
than the hurt. 
Cry silently in the veins 
pure resistance will not  work now. 
I will try the fiction path.

BECOMING NOBODY

In search of a missing clock
he went to the city of a fake encounter.
It was irrelevant to find
the lost tunnel.

There was no street without a rustle.
The sap of tall trees had bloomed
into jaws of death.
He stepped on a land mine
and blew himself
to reach the truth.

And his gift was an
apostate of me.
The tenth day moon will
celebrate my becoming nobody.

The rivals will have
a field day
dancing on my shroud.

BEHIND MY HEAD

Behind my head
There's a peak
that help my skull
to keep the brain.

My funny peak
it's blind every time
and can't help me at all
to see at the back.

Seeing at the back
i just change my head
to know what's wrong
and defend my self.

Behind my head
There's  a peak
without  a nose to breath.

THE LOAD

I have a heavy load on my head
   I can't lift it at all
using one hand.


I have a heavy load on my head
     full  of many things
I can't lift at once.

I have a heavy load on my head
      If i measure  it all
It's more than a drum.

I have a heavy load on my head
      When put on the weighing scale
It's fifty kilograms and above.

What a heavy load bulky  every time
     Since i was born!

Good Morning

The light	
A silent yet vibrant call
As if a shout from the east
Upon the wake of the day
The round surfacing presence
Calls upon us all
To stop, take notice
Pay heed
As we rub our eyes
And stretch to
The welcoming sky

YOU AND EVERYBODY

Again you made friends, words
wanted to leave the paper blank
for the parched lips,
crying eyes,
trembling hands.

Missing stanzas,
flowing river,
rootless floats.
You did not feel like-
time filled you every minute,
you were empty, poor.

When you read the end
you understood beginning.
Will to die was not sufficient
you had not completed the script.
Alone in crowd you wanted words
to commit suicide.

Democracy was a funny name.
Everybody was sad, except the lead
who did not know where to go.

One day you found your voice
and were surprised
you were everybody
when you were hurt, you bled inside
and your blood then mixed with 
the blood of everybody. Then everybody cried
and you became separated from you and did not say anything!

THE SUN AND THE MOON

Up  in the  sky,
There  are two  circles,
round  like melon.

One moves  in the  night,
and another in day time,
producing  enough  light
that  help  plants  to grow.

Men  and  women,
some times   in  the  year,
enjoy  the round  balls,
which  lightning the  world,
day  and  night.

One  it's   hot,
and another  it's  cold
throughout the year.

THE QUEST

The space was widening. Opacity was
Being. Antimatter in. You were scared.
Why this disintegration? Unthinkable hunger,
Incompleteness. Antithesis of universality. My
smallness. His greatness. The heat sucks the
blooms. Celestial dance of the destroyer begins.

The body makes I. Soul is me. The death
was climbing up the stairs. Hiding
in attic you were singing, refusing to see
the visitor, Dismissal of blast. Was a global
failure. How many bodies you are going to
count? Not enough graves. Mass burial?
or descent in tower of silence?

The sludge. Delta is disappearing. Nystagmus.
No land to build a home. Withdrawal. Poachers
are killing the tigers. Claws for power, killer’s
strength. A tall tree stands on ridge, meditating.
Peacocks are watching. Will be their turn
now? Eyes on the plumage. For clarity,
vision and wisdom.

GO AWAY

Unlived death, that was me
waking in exile from the bones.
He said I remember your verse
a split open bloom!

Given away your gems to sea
ready to become ash, green blood, 
you have killed a white cloud
now go for a floral burial.

He said I remained unpacked
like an open wound.
How far space will hang on the shoulders,
how far the sky will remain blue?

Snow will not melt I presume
I will burn my shirt with stain.
Life will not stop but conceive
the proud burning pain.

I stand today without complaints
grieve for my silence, ignorance.
There was a home I could not save
miles from water like bright dome.

THE DREAM

Some times i plan,
to fly like a bird,
and wave in the sky
to fight the sun!

But  i lost my wings,
thousand years back,
i would have killed it,
the enemy of my life.

DEAD FAITH

Pardon my mask
I will put you on pedestal to torment me,
because you were necessary
for my existence.
When I prepare finally my death wish
you can smile.

Your eyes are looking through my head,
I know,
you were hurt from my moon face.
I will wash your feet with my tears now.

Exhausted, nameless in a crowd
I was counting my see-through triumphs
all piled up as burned out bones.

To live without meaning is very painful.
Everything is abused for self gratification.
Over a black sky, against the mountains
the old silence becomes teeth of a dead faith.

PRAISE GOD

He created the world,
using his hands,
and all belongs to it,
using his knowledge.

He created the sea,
the sun and the moon,
to lighten the world,
day and night.

He created the trees,
the animals and the birds,
to boost the world
in joy  and love.

LOYAL TO DEATH

An answer becomes a question 
without an effort.
The world hisses 
in filaments of joy. 
My hands become 
green branches of a huge tree. 
Terrified sun moves away 
with all its glory. 
I empty myself in a circle of voidness.

It was a sad chapter 
the beginning of violence-
the heat dries up the sweat on brows. 
Standing in the sun I watch, 
how we are dismantling each other. 
The innocence of civility, 
eclipsed by ferocious flesh, loses symphony.

The fatal, brutal, savage times. 
We are running
to reach nowhere.
The tension creeps under the skin.
The impurity of thought
hurts like broken glass.
A barren land forgets
the man & remains loyal to death.

I can't fight my self,

I'm really a laughing stock,

I can clearly see its a beatiful day.
The sun is giving me all its rays.
The sky is blue and the grass is green.
Enjoying all nature has to bring.
Now I know why mom sit here so much.
To be close to nature to feel its touch.
I notice there is a breeze blowing the leaves in the trees.
I can feel moms presence here with me.
I feel such peace and content.
 And a afternoon could not be better spent.
Sitting here withe moms memories.
In the swing,with nature all I see.

Bark and moo

at the terrible time.

Oh! When the thunder strike
shakes all the ground

Who created it?
None knows at all,
but God only knows.

Who brought it in the world?

day and night.
Adultery is a curse!
