Enlightenment

Seek Life after life
Illusive task to obtain
Beyond doubts and fall

Start and end dramas 
Decipher complexities
Found partial answers 

Paradigm issues
Confusion overrate quest
Esteem falters wit

Stand mindful actions
Stuck within clearer pathways
A stretch still needed

Persistent conscience
Always craved enlightenment
Recall life purpose.

Meaningless Meaning

We deceive ourselves,
To try to hide from our own
Insignificance.

Giving when you could
Take more than you ever would
Behave as you should

My Shield

By Michael J Falotico

                                                         an insult does hurt..
                                                 when a tongue feels like a knife..
                                                    covered ears, my shield..

                                                         words spit like bullets..
                                              some hit there mark, some have not..
                                                           target smaller now..

SALVATION FROM SELF SLAVERY

Capers of Life

Kapriolen des Lebens / Capers of Life / Las cabriolas de vida  

Kapriolen des Lebens
Genauso wie fernes Irrlicht
In Vergangenheit


The capers of life
Like a far distant ghost light
In those bygone times


Cabriolas de vida
Luz fantasma lejano
En tiempos pasados

Probable Options in Life

Within mundane days
Countless options haunted once
Until best opted

Nothing rise nor fall
Only learning lessons gained
Real experience 

Time and space don't bind
Anything comes in mind's eye
Heights and slopes achieved

Sparks of lights mingled
Consciousness creates matter
Reality without

Broader perception
Discerned beyond paradox
Life is a pattern.

New Year, New Hope

Years gone in a snap
Older paves way for new ones
Better days unfold.

Glimpse olden memoirs 
Tidbits all grandest new hope
New year came on spot.

Past same as present
Joy comes with same minded pal
Tomorrow is now.

Empty Shoes

stories waiting to be heard

lonely hearts and minds

Die Augen der Nacht, The Eyes of the Night, Los Ojos de la Noche

Vor den Augen der Nacht
Verschwimmt die Einsamkeit
So ganz tränenlos

---------------------------------------

The  loneliness blurrs
In front of the eyes of the night
Completely without tears

---------------------------------------

Antes de los ojos de la noche 
Se desvanesce la soledad
Así sin lágrimas

Man and Monkey thoughts

Unbeatable  and
Resourceful  'Anjaneya'
Is our 'monkey-God'

Ape is ape and man,
Man. The twain did never meet.
Nor will ever meet.

CHEMISTRY IN BODY AND MIND

                                           body's chemistry
                                     consumption of milk differs 
                                        from vodka and wine

                                           a test tube in lab 
                                      shows results differently
                                            of compositions

                                           unseen chemistry 
                                poured in to all's eyes through sight 
                                         not same to all men

                                        feel without touching
                                          diversity in feeling 
                                       connect with own mind
