OBSERVATIONS

Morning light shimmers Floating dust welcome; Excited salutation World awakes Noisy traffic; Rush of work day Knock on the door Peephole lookout; Real estate agent Morning cuppa Fortified supplements; Health insurance Bamboo trees Walkway sentinels; Windy voices hum Old plumeria tree Speaks in vivid colours; Reds, yellows, whites bloom Lift alarm screaming Fire drill or short circuit; Irritating noise Balcony view Ant-people far below; Busy antics ply Temple oracle Praying on a wish; Curious bystanders Church petitions Man keeps busy asking; Attendance compulsory Despite our faiths Man remains unchanged; Unsure and insecure Voice of dawn Hurling new songs; Rapture unnoticed Bold ideas fashion New collections; Recycle old orbits Day after day Same old, same old; What's new pussycat Hymn and prayer Endless petitions; Too much noise Go deeply now Linger right here; Discern afresh When, where and how Who, why and what; Unanswered questions Weary and tired Dreary world swirls; Awaiting salvation Look beyond reason To fit new rhymes; Seasonal permutations Looking out Peeping in; Who cares Lost in the crowd I search for something; I don't know why Rules are rules Useful as tools; Transcend and discard Once in a while A sincere smile; Cynics fling piles Go beyond terms Let feelings style; Spontaneous voice Seek then the light Beyond meaning; Seize true rapture When the soul awakes Magic and mystic Charm with bold say Words once empty Pregnant with rapture; Creation sings In a clear vessel The empty space: Is most valuable Go beyond form Beyond norm; Flirt with impulse Words are devices Language crude formats; Soul sublimates Sense a sure gap Between said and done; Herein possibilities field Leon Enriquez 16 August 2014 Singapore
