Alas - for Jan Allison

Not unexpected,
a departure time, arrives.
    A loved one now gone.

Mourning dawns; a glare,
a hard crashing tide, will ebb.
    A loved one is missed.

Writing soothes the heart;
memories will dance, this day.
    A loved one treasured.

In his suicide note
My poverty is to blame
No one else, he wrote

A child dies in Africa,
Where are your children?

What People Were and What People Are

People were
Many things.
Strange or not

People were
Different and
Odd and fun.

People were
Monsters but…
That’s not all

People were
And still are
Strange and odd.

People are
People. For
life is life. 

Yet not.
Not is lies.
Truth seeps from

Every mouth
Lies, lies, lies
Move, move, move

But somehow
Lies prevail.
Lies are life.

Lies are death.
Lies are homes.
Lies are pain.

Lies are truth.
Yet somehow.
Truth prevails.

Truth is life.
Truth is death.
Truth is home.

Truth is pain.
Truth is lie.
Truth is that.

Lies will die.
Lies will cease.

Truth will live.
Truth will be.

Crisis in Identity

Misguide in knowledge
Misled in society
Grain pretend as wheat

Poor generation
Camouflaged by the motion
Lost in true nation

Your skin ain't no lie
Intelligence miss your mind
Turn back, take a side 

Ain't no harm you plead
To the country where you breathe
Dedicate indeed

45th- BLANK

there are 2 blank cards
in the angel card deck so
today I'm "depressed"

for this to be the 
best country in the whole world
today it looks sad

just happy that I 
was a member of the age
of Aquarius

our best hour was 
revolution of 60's
created big change

now elephants rule
just capitalistic pigs
love hear themselves squeal

Ingenious partners no hesitation.
No loud protest, no obligation. 
No decrepitation, no calcumination. 
No spurious trouble, only festive occasions,
Generosity and probity, no tension.

A Cue

To be recogonised...
Doesn't mean you are the best
...Now it should be clear. 

For you yet to win..
Mustn't stop you from dreaming
...belief in yourself.

Underneath this smile
see my source of endless joy:
peace, kindness and love.

Nothing I will fear
believing in tomorrow,
to find a rainbow  
stretching over that green hill...
to imagine what's beyond.

Show your sympathy,
share my happiness revealed
underneath this smile.

Prayer for mercy

when system fails, injustice produced harassment and disappointments.
innocence cursed the cruelty and prayer to God for justice comments.
God hears and develops such nature to punish a guilty person,
God rewards a disease to deliver justice to remove unwanted dents.
Someone's suffering changes human mind and prayer for mercy in seconds.

Beneath Mima's Canopy

Graying clouds, faces
Sprinkled with tears of sorrow...
Deepening thunders

Howling winds, braces
Buffeted by ghastly breath...
Trembling ropes and spikes

Blowing rains, vases
Overturned near grave diggers...
Strewn flower petals

Clearing skies, races
Blanketed the pink coffer...
Gifting her gray vault

Waning tears, faces
Leaked with canopy waters...
Tossing earth within

Should be one of growth and joy

one challenge, one heartbeat, one goal
blinding blast--Boston’s blood
achievements brutally, ruthlessly denied

(My prayers and heart go out to Boston--the Athletes and their loved ones)

Flying Frog

From the lily pond
Green frog jumps with eyes on meal
Web legs extending
