I hear the rain,  its pouring down

The raindrops splashing all around

The smell of spring is, oh, so sweet

With more to come, our daily treat.

This earth is parched and overcome

The winter’s been its old hum-drum

The spring is here for its short stay

Let’s make the most of every day !

When I was young and oh so fleet

I loved to dance on magic feet

We’d do the rhumba, cha cha too

The fox trot, waltz or boogaloo.

Today the kids don’t dance at all

Most times they lean against the wall

Or couple up out on the floor

And seem to sway, but nothing more.

Once dancing used to be an art

With rhythm coming from the heart

I sure do wish we could return

To yesteryear with kudoes earned !

It occurs to me the world’s upside down

And instead of smiling it wears a frown

Now that’s not the way it was meant to be

With its splendid vistas and great beauty.

Stop for a moment and take a real look

There’s billions of photos filling each book

No one can create a new mountain peak

It’s those who try climbing of whom we speak.

The wisdom of God is beyond our reach

No matter how much or how hard they teach

The world is not ours, one we could not make

All have a short span to visit not break !

 

THE RUNNER ( 2018 ) 2018/09/06

With all her hair piled on her head

Her cheeks so pink, her lips true red

Her running shorts cut at the thigh

With measured trot while passing by.

 

She is a picture of content

Angelic smile from heaven sent

As daily I observe her pass

From my front window’s pane of glass.

 

Her running shoes and steady pace

Are ne’er distracted by each race

She’s happy jogging every street

Controling life while on her feet !

Now I have dreamt a million dreams

And some of them came true

I guess I’m lucky, so it seems

I like to share with you !

For all those times luck has not smiled

Nor been so very kind

When fate did scheme to drive us wild

With joy harder to find,

We still held on with all our might

Small matter what was done

But win we have after the fight

To save our freedom come !

 

SHARE A SMILE ( 2016 ) 2016/07/03

The sadness of this life I see

Is absence of one thing that’s free

No matter where it is I’m at

The world about is sad and flat.

Those faces that are all around

Are full of darkness or a frown

The answer’s simple and worthwhile

How lovely if they’d share a smile !

 

MIND YOUR BIZ ! ( 2015 ) 2015/06/18

Now long ago and faraway

Before the sun came out to play

A little mouse peeked out his hole

And wandered off to take a stroll.

“To see the world before I die”

While asking why, ’twas his reply

His aim, to share with other mice

He brought a bag of pilfered rice.

He traveled far, across the street

In hopes that others he would meet

But on the way with this and that

He ran into an alley cat.

The battle left no great surprise

As mousey met his sad demise

I’d like to think the moral is

Enjoy your home and mind your biz !
