Osama Docudrama
Itinerant mercenary shrouded with penitent robe
Shining beacon for terrorists around the globe
Hermetic curmudgeon; gun-toting xenophobe
Zealous provacateur who for ardent jihadists did probe

Material wealth a means; establishing a caliphate the end
Seeking Arab-royalty's, sovereign-sheikdoms to rend
Scourge of...

Yesterday as I was going to my chair
I saw a cat not sleeping there!
He was’t asleep there,  again today
Oh how I wish he’d not be away.

Powerful Pens
The pen is greater than the sword or so it’s often said.
A poet’s word still stirs the heart long after he is dead.
The "Elegy" of Thomas Gray can still provoke a thought.
And Campbell’s "Ullin’s Daughter"...

DEEP POETRY and REALITY


Deep poetry has its own reality
Instrumental in setting the mind free
From the confinement of this mundane world
Transporting us to wondrous realms untold

Which uplifts the mind and sets it free

 Four things come not back:

time past; the neglected opportunity.

Afloat in Serenity
In quest to find respite and solitude 
spiritual food
it's to the sea I owe my gratitude

Only in my dreams
while adrift under starlight and moonbeams
I'm free of life's schemes

In slumber I sail upon the vast sea

One more about 'us'
2015

On a personal note…

Laughing jokingly on the phone.
Teasing each other because of one’s temporary victory.
Flashy glances in the hall. 
I remember it all.
Do you?

Graduation.
Staying up late apologizing in Quebec.
The school dance.
It wasn’t just chance.

The paradoxes of high improved and obscured sociates
That is truth, 
in England  
all people have looked as polished talents and genius,
even a driver there
or porter, or steward,

or stealer, or priest, 
or head of ministry
