Now we are in a battle turf
A big warfare is on its way,

We lost all the hope of ray.

Human chain becoming so weedy,
A country with no army no force

Deprived of Love
She looks at him and whispers, "I'm afraid of falling."
     He smiles at her and replies, "I'll catch you."

like the tea bag in my cup

Ribbons of steam...Read More

She's the look of a hothouse flower;
She seems to be losing power-
Like a rose in need of summer shower!
Like a bird retreating to summer bower!

Hair plastered, her dress a mess,
She's been under a current stress.
Susanna didn't mean to transgress,
But, she's...Read More

Sun scorching, sweltering, sizzling beach

My hardened soles resist the heat

Sunglasses shielding my eyes

White cotton ball clouds glide

Along deep blue skies

But I’m blue too

See them coming down the street
Dancing with a passion that is very deep
Hands waving in the air 
People cheering far and near
Voices shouting out of control
And the music is playing very loud
Chatter and laughter, cussing and swearing
Everything is wrapped up...Read More

Baking, broiling, blindingly bright, blistering sun,

The kabob that is my body searing, skewered

Over scorching, sweltering, sizzling sand.

Deceptively blue skies devoid of any deliverance,

No cavalry of clouds coming to convey compassion.

Rising balloon-like bubbles of hot air

Causing distant objects to ripple and...Read More

Noon.  The sun has spurned the moon.
Heartbreak?  No, it is too soon.
Breathless in sweltering June,
At a place lover's remnants are strewn.

Seasons.  Come and go like he.
Strange feeling he never knew me.
With this he would disagree...

I saw a child on a play yard swing
And my soul soared with fervent joy.
As precious memories came flooding back
To when I was just a boy.

My shirt and shoes were often first to go.

Scoops of gold powder flapping sunny flame

E'er so oft the presence of breeze displays,
Through fluttering leaves of trees and branch sways,
A course, whereto, not set by the seasons,

After this hot summer days,
I saw every bird on their ways,
To find a roof upon their heads,
Shortly, each bird will be seen on every window,
And enjoying the drops as television premier!
