Trust me - tanka

                          Dejected in love
                         I act in defiance of,
                          yet face the music
                      Why not look into my face,
                      Embrace panoptic passion !

Army Rangers Rescue UFO Abductee

Up on  mountain top.
Just don't know how I got here.
Army Rangers  rescued me.
Says UFO kidnapped me.
Sure lucky I was let go.

Light upon the Path

Sealed in walls of ice
My heart locked; frozen frail,
Ragged shardsduk-taped
After a swift fall from grace
Grim view of my shackled fate

Opening my mind
In order to see clearly
Amending time lost
Moving forward yet refrained
Seeking a promising path

Lily's, daisies, rose's,
Stoping to sniff as they bloom
Staring at the stars
Burning like a tigers eyes
Meek child I am no longer

Reach for heaven
To chase inner most desires
Stroking fire within
Aspiring to heights untold
Letting inner light shine o

(I connected this to "the great flower of life" in a perspective of personal growth from a troubled child to a positive and driven young adult inspired toward achieving greater things)

A life negative—
No person’s immune from this.
Fight back hard always . . . 
	 No fear—be courageous now . . . 
And never ever give up!

Tears of the War

Tears of the war 

Tears flow silently,
Pride digs deep into the heart,
Dare you defy grief,
Bravery etched in the gold,
Mortals are now immortal !

The dragon eats land
Steps on other people´s right
And we say nothing 
Because once it was wronged
Can´t speak ill of the ogre
The dragon spews fire 
Over anyone who seeks redress 
To get what is theirs 
And slowly the world awakes 
The monster a perilous fiend

Faith Hope Love

Faith fills us with peace,
Hope gives us strength to go on.
Love helps lift us up.
With faith, hope and love combined,
We’ll conquer life together.

Namaste namasti

Teaching what I learnt
From heroes and 
The known and 
I owe each each of you 
Which I know are not 

Namaste my gems-
Smashing spread and 
light my pen.
Shalom to you all.

The Smoke

           The Smoke

You smell the smoke
see the air we are breathing
It makes me gag
no way here for us to breathe
wish this smoke would go away

Double Tanka re: Malcolm X

a. Perspective of Malcolm X

in the ghettos
like the reservations
white man builds
a separation of skins
hearts and minds

b. My Perspective

Malcolm Little born
to roll uphill
against all odds
a boy transmogrifies
into variable X
