OOMPH HERE 3


By condo fence
Bird choir melody;
Song of July


Marriage banquet
Hosts in finery;
Guests and feast sparkle


Gratitude speaks
Spilling fond banter;
Bride and groom delight


Distant laughter
Prompts curious eyes;
Ears on the prowl


See moments crisp
Potato chips tasty;
TV sitcom drama 


Evening comes around
Rare red sun horizon;
Daylight waving goodbye


Nonsense can talk
Crude noise intrudes;
Calm thoughts watch


Moment to commit
Territorial glimpses;
Takeover bid


Deep design motifs:
Extravagant ideas;
Simple illustration


Talk is cheap
Only execution matters;
DIY moments


News flash outcry:
Commercial plane shot down;
World mourns tragic murder


War decides death
Destruction forces pain;
Revolutions change nothing


Sad story
Death by fire bombs;
No one spared


Headline news
All over the world;
297 dead mid flight


Such inhumanity
No cause for concern;
Warring fractions impasse


Today's world awakes
Weapons of mass destruction;
In small hordes


Tension escalates
Man versus man;
No one wins


Sooner not later
Change intervenes;
New gremlin harvest


Morning coffee 
Aroma of wakefulness;
Prelude to day's onslaught


Once upon a time
Spring held sweet ardour;
Today, old age ferments


Words speed along
Congestion impedes;
Word craft evolves
