The Playground

We are all in the devil's playground, 
now watch as I breach over and hold on to God's hand real tight. 


~
#1. The underground is never lonely, to many hot dates. 

#2. The host and the guest never seem to rest.

#3. The light will always shine upon my soul, no matter the shadow.

Thievery

                in locking away our heart.......

Scherben des Lebens/ The shards of life/ Los fragmentos de la vida

Die Scherben des Lebens lassen sich nicht kitten.  (German)

The shards of the life cannot be cemented.  (English)

Los fragmentos de la vida no se puede enmasillar.  (Spanish)

Les éclats de vie ne peu pas être à nouveau ensemble.  (French)

I frammenti di vita non può essere di nuovo insieme .  (Italian)

Die skerwe van die lewe kan nie weer saam wees. (Afrikaans)

Ang mga tipak ng buhay ay hindi maaaring simentuhin. (Tagalog)

ENVIOUS HEARTS








Envious hearts would never be lovers of truth and justice but devotees to falsehood and injustice!*







(c)  Demetrios Trifiatis
          04 June 2016


* Today I received a soupmail by someone who never visits me, accusing me of supporting someone who harasses ladies and gentlemen alike! 
I would never commit injustice against anyone! I only comment to the poem written ignoring why the poem is written. 
Sometimes poems are fictitious.  It is impossible to know what is in the mind of the writer since there are no names of the supposed victim! I DECLARE THAT NEVER SUPPORTED OR WILL I SUPPORT ANY INJUSTICE and would like to let this person know that I am a free man and an honest one! It is better for the author of that soup mail not to try to turn one person against the other. Here we are not to divide people but to unite them! At least I AM DOING IT IN PRACTICE.
God bless him who sent me the message and may he sees the light and stop creating groups to fight one against the other so as for him to reign! I also ask all our soupers to work in harmony for we suppose to be poets inspired by God and since GOD IS LOVE let us LOVE ONE ANOTHER !

Reflection

In the stillness of Silver Lake, reflects a golden harvest moon

              But how do I know
               what is lake and what is sky?
                If the world were upside down
                 the sky may be lake
                  and lake may be sky,......or do
                    mine eyes see two harvest moons?.....

                       Yet...what should it matter to I ?
                       Twice the splendor reflects for mine eyes............
