The Nature of Wisdom
Every flower has its own color
With annual observation,
this we springtime discover

Give a womb kernel cede

To the spectrum birthright

we did not DYE in vain
we did not Dye in vain!
from “songs of the sea snails”
though i’m just a slimy crawler,
my lineage is proud:
my forebears gave their lives
(oh, let the trumps blare loud!)
so purple-mantled Royals
might stand out in a crowd.

Eyes stare at me
In a blank pique,
Crying bout frees
A tantrum streak.

You want to sleep
Dear sleepy eyes,
Discomfort peeps
Through weary cries.

You cry and strain
As tears come out,
You say it plain
In breathless shouts.

You mouth sighs pout
In cranky voice,
What's it about:
The swaddle poise?

Sadness paints a lonely portrait
A mother leaves her babe behind
Newborn in this darkest hour
What she held she cannot find

Brokenhearted complications 
Swollen feet and shattered dreams
Through her tears a fearful question
Who can tell her what it means

All alone the nursery trembles

Sympathy a Great Virtue 2
Have you ever eaten an apple
By sitting on a speedy bicycle?
Difficult? Sympathy is like sizzle
Shouts when not got in coddle;
Smiles if given in time subtle.
Shrewd! With poor does giggle
With rich it does struggle.

Soothing, Shore Breeze
On balmy beach blithe commodore
Without ship, rudder, or rowing oar
Striding gusts, waves only chore
Soothing breeze girdles the shore
Sidling along, currents to explore
Mind's tranquil base to restore
Body's chafed shaft to bore
Frothy mist o'er skin doth pour
Swabbed flesh awaiting encore
