             When real life
             it presents me heavy task,
             I promptly soften       
               it with

Premium Member A Sprinkle of Wit
    A sprinkle of wit
      a dash of gravitas
    Not too precise
      idle your abacus

    A pinch of clarity
      to seek the cavity
    Where truth seeps in
      where daylight dawns

Premium Member MELANCHOLIA-a tanka verse
a confined abyss
dis ease,born of despair-
early morning mist
evanescing in
new light-giving care

Keep Your Head Up
Watch the tide rise and fall
Just to know you're alive
No one sees what I see
They don't know what I hide
It's easy to drown
In the doubts of your mind
But we're not backing down 
'Til the sun warms the sky
Keep your head up...

Personal Memories
Inquiring was my mind to gain was her wisdom
Awakening to find she never found it random
As I sat by her side precious yet seldom
Measuring her breathe as she led me to his kingdom
Footsteps called belief given my chance for eternal freedom

An observer would ask quietly,
Why do we write poetry?
We use illusion, in words to dazzle,
Our muse flows words, no hassles,
Each poem a fragment of society,
Writers always luminaries,
Beacons of a torch, to dazzle,
We scribble each verse, no hassles...........

Dear Poet
I read one of my favorite poets
Light poetry and some other forms,
Italian sonnet and acrostic to name some
Kind and rich in term of soul and spirit
Enjoyed! It has been a nice smooth reading
It's fun reading you lovely big bird
Time to write about you dear waterfall

Watch those who change around you, for their climate is unsettled 
The cool breeze of yesterday becomes the humidity of today
Unstabled weather, impossible to predict 
Seasons who disregard their alias 
Man is merely a leaf,
Woman, a rare fruit
Inconsistent, yet consistent...

Want and Need
Everybody wants what they can't have
Most times what they can't have is just a fad

A fad that goes from fab to drab quite fast 
And like a scientist in a lab going mad 
It's sad to see 

Everybody's chasing after some fab fad 
But what they really need
Is what they already had

A Sign from God
Send for me, should I be gone-
I am but a touch away
In hand with God and we are One
(In folds of light my Mind doth lay)

My shining Soul, both bright and dark,
Was bound by birth to Misery
With lucid lines, I now embark
To write my Life through Poetry

I meander through this maze called world, 
seeing darkness everywhere, 
even in the bright desert sun, 
my soul ripped by doubt and fear,
and utter loneliness, 
saved only by a sudden wave of love, 
a flicker of hope--
O Light! O Light! O Light of God!

Your Tray
Deep in the ocean
Two buds bloom in joyous dark
And then it is light

The sky in the boat 
Rides the sail and moonlit wind
Become shining stars

From the mystic bridge
In awe and love we look at
Both the oranges

It is poetry
World poetry day today
Words from your joy tray

                  What I write,
                 it doesn't come from me ...
              Poetry is who owns me!
            I am an anxious reader of myself,
            what poetry dictates to me, I write
            and read ... so I conceive myself
            wider and wider ... so i come
              close to the light ...!...

An Epistle to Light
Dear Light
Fairest of ‘em all
Beam your blinding rays
Chase me
And spark another you in me
To end my reign
Dispel me into the shadows
Let the new you
Glow with your grace
And my darkened eyes
Tear with disgrace
Spring forth
Gush out 
Like a fountain of you
Chase away
Drown every breathing me
For i am darkness
And you are light

	This time.

	Still naught.

Read books

Brain nap
	A sap?

More rest
	Flunked test.

	Not fine.

Didn’t learn
	Still yearn.

The Hen-pecked Husband
"The Hen-pecked Husband" By M. Taha Effendi (Light Poetry) The door bell rang yet again, and yonder heard the distinct voice, of my dear old wife, full of pain, drowned all my dreams of rejoice. then came the thundering slap, that landed on my cheek now red, and as I panicked out of my nap, I realized I had wet my bed.

eye contact
eye contact.
who needs it?
like when i try holding my anger
and you tell me to look up
out from behind my knees.
i hesitate. i know i'll cave.
when i look at you,
when i see your eyes,
i lose my train of thought.
a spark goes off
and my soul catches fire.
so you start smiling
and i cover my face
and i can't remember
why i was mad in the first place....

We need to dress the world,
tear off its rags ...
We need to offer light to the gloom
rescue the human mass
who lives in the wintry ...
We need to be the sun
of the somber ...
We need to feed the dreams
of the dead figures in obscurity,
of prisoners in murks and nightmares ...
We need to format hope to
people fallen trees,
people who are infertile
in life......

Premium Member Left It All Behind
Left It All Behind

Left it all behind!
hadn’t planned it
just sorta…. well…..
felt that shadow
creeping closer,
a chill……. following 
my every movement,
an icy angst
crystallizing memory,
shades….. slowly drawing
on the windows
of the soul.
No ticket
No boarding pass
No tomorrow
Left it all behind.

Every Ruler is a Poet
Every leader is a Poet
campaigns by light poetry
delivers speeches in metaphors
loads satires on opposition
paints fallen ones with ironies
praises success in rhymes
presents challenges in narratives
answers questions  in poetic prose
When  ejected from power,
sings elegiac lyrics and epics
laments in limericks
writes regime history in idyll
When dead, tomb carries epitaph
