came an army...

The deaf musician's steel...

their rhythmic patterns mold words into shape.
Like guarded gates, they hold the imagery

Premium Member CONSIDER THEN

News flash
Paris attacks;
Violence strikes


Innocent deaths
Terror unveils;
Death delivers


Madness conspires
Human debris;
Bigotry unleashed


Evil men scheme
Distorted agendas;
Self-destruct roams


Good people die
Bloodbath escalates;
Terror unleashed


Signs of our times
Deceptive turbulence;
Mortal casualties


Moods swayed
Fear catapults;

Jog at skybridge
Dusk descends swiftly;
Deep darkness sums

Side by side we
Stride brisk and fast;
Stop clock moments

A neighbour smiles
Mobile cellphone chat;
Our feet speed away

Evening echoes
Cicada serenade;
Hazy ambience...

Retreat within as stillness comes,
Seek the unseen as silence sums.

Put away toys from earthly plots,
Discard vain ploys and senseless thoughts.

Go deeper still to depths unknown,

Reach that calm sea where stillness sums;

What's What
Love lusts,
Hate hurts,
God goads,
Devil dares,
Death dumps, 
Life longs,
Hope holds,
Soul survives,
Faith fools,
Religion rants,
Priest panders,
Politics preys,
Public pays,
knowledge knows,
Wisdom wins,
Science sums,
Time tempers,
Patience prevails,
Marriage mars,
Wife whines,
Husband hustles,
Sex sells,
Cash corrupts,
