Poem:

.

looking, lost, trying to find fantasyland
this ugly, smelly reality I cannot stand
transport me to a faraway zone
let me hide by using a clone

let’s create a new space and call it Love
built with the blessings received from above
air and noise pollution may not exist
the sky above always rainbow kissed

soft melodies provided by the birds and the bees
herbal aromas wafting about on a fresh breeze
every trail and path lined with a display floral
the horizon represented by a bucolic mural

a sirens scream, a grieving mothers wail
back to earth, dreams wasted to no avail
a bang and a thud, everything used and abused
only the crazy from this world are excused

to cope, one must adjust the altitude
work hard at keeping a good attitude
let reality suck, if it must
let go, relax, in God you must trust

The Making

.

Peace goes into

the making of a poet

as flour goes into

the making of bread.”

.

tranquility

quiet inspiration

the silent universe

God’s opportunity to talk

serenity

Haiku:

must quiet the noisy mind

Poem:

.

sitting in the city

listening to the sirens
not a native to these environs
hard to adapt to the nitty gritty
the crime, the violence, such a pity
all is lost, nothing is on the horizons

sitting in the city

listening to the sirens
the news tries to be witty
attempts to shine like diamonds
the truth as remote as far off islands
pretending that all is pretty

sitting in the city
