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
