The incident around us
Sometimes it’s so true
But sometimes dishonesties
All they see is truth and lies...

behind these glass panes

here she contemplates nature

never feeling rain

the sun never warms her face

she's merely an observer...

Stilling not stillness, let now the stillness still our being
Gripping us in heightened rapture of bliss vivifying

opposite sexes
in front of a decayed installment
there were two figures

one observer
posing in front of the installment
they were semi-naked

From horizon to zenith's point and then to Crimson dusk he moved

While I kept watching leaves turning hues which now swim on blue water

The Observer
If there was a god
That looked down and saw everything,
If there happened to be some anonymous observer, 
Somewhere a distant voyeur of human life,
Then maybe science wouldn't be so scary 
And the answer ‘no’
So right.

You asked why I was not smiling
I looked at you blankly
Then smiled

That's all I had

A blank page look
Because not always am I happy
Sometimes I am an observer

Watching and questioning
All that we are
All that we do

Invisible Observer
Life in her portrait is so deep and intense,
that its tentacles flow out of her portrait
in the form of water. Life she gave out
eons back returns back in equal measure…

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...........

Story Time
I never tire of the tales
Release gradually comforts me
Everything fades away
All around me ogres sing
Dreams and dragons circle left
Perfectly tame and sensible.
Organized into a secret union.
Escape from the real world
My perfect afternoon.
Sanity a silent observer.

Journey Into the Mind
I shall try to take you along,
though as an observer, you will be
unable to continue to the end.

There will be silence--of course.
Soon, words will no longer serve.
Try to yield, to emptiness
Tangent touches tangent
Thoughts give over
meaning is gone
there is

Premium Member poison darts
Shakespeare said, “make
pieces of the beast and his

My parents voted
today - filling out and then
casting their ballots.

It was a pleasing
privilege - even as an
anxious observer.

Their two small darts at
the heart of the snarling beast.
Saints let them strike true.

Premium Member Purpose

If we examine now
What we are doing
And find we are not free..
We must then 
Put the doing aside
Perhaps only briefly
And be the observer
Of the doing..
Then the observer
Absorbs the doing..
No observer..No doing
Just what is happening.. 
And we notice freedom
Making reentry......

I ask of the desert dunes,
The stately Kilmanjaro, the 
Mambilla outcrops;
I ask of the great forests
The seven old rivers
Snaking through my black 
I ask of the noble rains,
Every ancient observer;
Does it matter who built the 
Old Zimbabwe
When we feed not today
Our hungry hordes?...

Premium Member Silent trumpets
Silent Trumpets.
The yellowy trumpets 
In great abundance
Are blown but make no sound
The crowds of blue bells remain silent
Without ringing 
 Upon the shady ground
All so quiet
But their showy colors shout out aloud
To the heart of the observer  
As they in all their glory
Wave back tall and proud.

Life is Sweet in Honey-Hives
The Pollen of my life is sweetened-
Passed from bee to bee
Friendly flowers form a beacon
(My Queen beams humble-ly)

I feel alive; so bold inside-
Life is sweet in honey-hives!
Poppies bloom, a serum soon
Beckons forth my Soul to thrive!

*Just wondering if anyone can guess to what I am alluding? I will crown thee an astute observer as a prize ;)...

Premium Member Interference
Whether in a baseball game
Or in the span of life,
Interference often causes
Agita* or strife.

Even when one’s motives
May be innocent or pure,
A casual observer
Or an ump might not be sure.

So consequences will result
When someone interferes,
And sometimes the effects may last
For months or even years.

*indigestion; aggravation

The Outside Observer
He's an outsider to the pain I feel
Oblivious and happy-
When with her
Like a thief in the night I want to steal
His heart
But it was never mine from the start
I watch
This time the outsider
An invisible particle of air
All the fire
Extinguished out of me
Pathetic and lonely
My feelings unspared
A smile etched on my face
So that the hurt is never showcased...

Galileo Galilei
An avid student of Copernicus
And keen observer of the universe,
The founding father of astronomy,
Philosopher and polymath was he.
Punished by Urban for his heresy,
For his heliocentric the-o-ry,
He appeared before the Inquisition
Which required his public recantation.
Imprisoned, muttered :”and yet it moves”
But this false recantation nothing proves....

Premium Member A Glowing Smile
A smile that glows Brighter than a light bulb Among light bulbs Instantaneously melting Unforgiving glaciers A smile Often exploding Like a supernova Shamelessly exposing Blinding pearly whites Ah yes, it does glow In the dark It's intensity overpowering To the observer
