I See Fire

Long Day at work
He returns
as a red-eyed wolf

Quiet room
and shiny desks
His minds keep busy

Eyes staring
on wet pavements
No more Fire

Then I See You
crow's feet landing on my eyes
Fired Up!

Messages conveyed
even a thick glass
cannot stop your anger

There is Fire 
in all working people
They all need a spark plug

Quiet is the loudest

In the calm of the heat
In the stillness of the beat
Swims the cellular matter in bits

The humming motion
Dances the miniscule waves
And kisses the mounting leaves

The soft, the smooth and the unknown 
Is a building block of union
The minion with the dominion

Peace

Warm sun comforts you
You are all green and light gold
Your beautiful hold

Sunrays on red lips
Buds open out in flowers
My story-stirred hours

And the violet
Bougainvilleas on your arch
In a lovely splurge 

Hold on little more
On your flowing river shore
In your lush lyric
