Cinquain modern--Sleep

Sleep
friend, foe
snoring, rest, rattle
peaceful ease, magical, mystic
Somber

Changeable, golden
Surrendering the leaves,
following your sleep, all’s

Nightfall

Night falls,
Darkness prevails,
Summoning the reaper,
To collect the gruesome harvest,
Death holds.

Time with children passes all too fast - traditional cinquain

tiny hands, small feet
chuckling little laughs
I can't have a seat
burning in my calves
when is my retreat?

Messes all day
overthrown by smiles
child lead the way
track them for miles

one small step
turns to leaps
where's time kept?

not here...
not there...

WHERE?

3AM

The clock always reads 3 in the morn
at least that's how it seems
stuck on a time forlorn
granting all but sweet dreams
while the solemn moon gleams

time

As Time Goes By 

Each grain of sand 
On the waste of Sahara
Is a word spoken
A lover´s whisper
A story told and 
A song sung.
And now lizards and
Snakes burrow under 
The sand to
Escape the fierce sun.

There No Rest

There No Rest


I can't hear you
I can't see you
I must be losing my mind


Our sanity is losing it pace
Shall this trio fall into madness
Let us fall for we shall never break

Must we see day as or time to rest
Must we see night as or time to play
Where going feel every second painfully

I touch your head
I touch you lips
I touch you chin

I release you
I trap you
I watch you

Sleep
Awake
Meditation

I give you birth
I take your life
I give you peace
 

Let sleep
Let lay our heads
At least we know 

We are protected

roughy toughy test

once day night i sat and thought 
how is my test with broomy gruff
i have to write the three passage
within the time of ten minutes 
i thought its easy ,no need
of study ,
i can manage at least of my own
tomorrow at my test i saw the paper
with too many questions
i didn't understand so what to do
the test was roughy for me then i thought was 
no goodies rot 
after the test my friends asked me 
have you been studying  the three passage grugg?
i reply no for me mean time no
that test gave me a shame of
roughy toughy face

Friends for all time

For Carolyn D

A friend
For you I am
Like a closest member
Of the family, as you are
To me.

With that
When you're hurt
I feel the pain enter 
But left with no way to make things
Better.

Helpless
Is what I feel
No matter what I say
meaningless words, bring no change, and
I pray.

That God
Shows you the way
To a beautiful place
In the sun, and where within, peace
Will reign.

City Bus (Cinquain)

This bus
Carries mixed thoughts
The thinking zone on wheels
No talking, only wild thoughts
That’s us

YOUTH MUST BE LIVED

How true is the saying that youth is eternal and glorious only for some,
when hearts are free of worries, they know nothing of human pain;
fantasy suddenly begins and dusk that brings night delays to come...
and as wild and incredible it might seem, it always recalls home!
Youth must be lived, not wasted, but be reveled in happy refrain.

TIME TO GO

Candles
snuffed out,players
departing one by one-
the symphony becomes a
solo

Inspired by Haydn's Farewell Symphony(he wrote it as he felt the orchestra had been too 
long on the road!)

Birth

Blissful
Valid pictures
Adorned author recalls
Records retained clearly intense 
Childbirth

Sudden bluster
Lever, balance, employ
Changing direction without thought

Chance 4-26-06

                                              If only I had a chance
                                              I dream what it would be like
                                              to have you laughing with me,
                                              to be able to hold you close,
                                              to be able to spend time with you.

                                             We walk past each other
                                             with just a friendly hello spoken.
                                             Our shadows meet on the cold,
                                             emotionless pavement.
                                             For that second were close,
                                             closer than well ever be.

                                             You don't know how I wish I could talk to you.
                                              If only I had the chance.
                                              Time moves on,
                                              and I know that it will eventually run out
                                              and you will just be a
                                              distant memory in my past.

Little one

She grows so fast 
Its so hard to see you now
My  time did not last
Your trying to hard and to loud

Slow you role
Dont grow up to fast 
where you helment
or Ill kick you ass

Go slow and see the world
Sometime be alone just be a girl

Its ok to be one
you in the sun
the rays of life in you hair
thanking god that your there

We all need time to grow
Fuk the world you must show
your heart is better than most
dont waste your time on goust

You have all the time in the world

Where your helment
Where your helment

Mirror

Moment 
in mercury:
a fixed constellation
of your dancing and spinning self.
Be still.

A Matter Of Words

repair
involves some time
for a machine unlike
a heart which takes more time for it

dancing through my 
open parallel arms.
it’s time we met hand, for I knew
you once.
