THE WINDS OF CHANCE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/17

The  sun  is rising  in the  sky

To peer o’er roofs  of homes nearby

And  shine a ray of bright  sunlight

To veil the darkness  of each night.

The winds of chance  are more  discreet

As  they blow  change across the  street

And  every single  breath we  breathe

Is  one  more  memory to  leave !

 

 

 

ICONOCLAST ( 2017 ) 2017/08/19

So many children do not play

So many dreams have gone astray

While many values have been trashed

Too many idols now are bashed.

We live in times too tough to bear

There seems no kindness left to share

Our world is dying bit by bit

And everyone is part of it.

Dark clouds are gathering above

Obscuring all our acts of love

Hold on, hold on, the die is cast

Let’s welcome the iconoclast !

 

 

 

 

COUNT THE COST ( 2017 ) 2017/08/04

I hear a sound, I think it’s rain

It pings against my window pane

Each droplet falling one by one

Like staccato echoes everyone

The drip, drip, dripping that I hear

Sounds like a trumpet on my ear

Crescendo rising to its peak

With no one there who dares to speak

The silence of the night is lost

There’s no one left to count the cost !

I’ve spent the morning in the park

And watched the shadows growing dark

Quite soon the rains will shower down

And all the clouds will sport a frown.

The birds above will share a bath

While toads and frogs hop in the path

The rain will seep into the ground

To soak the seeds that it has found.

A simple truth we can’t deny

That we are only passing by

We need the rain to help us see

Our world bathed in complexity !

 

FINAL GOAL ( 2015 ) 2015/09/12

There is a basket that sits on a shelf nearby

Full of ideas that failed as other hopes did die

It holds the remnants of the life that I desired

When time was young and no special talent required.

There in that simple basket rests a thousand schemes

Amongst the fabric, ribbons, needles, plans and dreams

Pieces of wood, paper, cotton, wishes and bows

All of them part of a past that nobody knows.

The basket is silent, it never had a voice

Like those who filled my life yet never made a choice

Each has their secret cache that only they control

And each at last decides what is their final goal !

How sad am I that I can’t fly

Like Icarus, I can but try

More sad indeed that when I do

I seem a fool to quite a few.

Tis hard to be just one more guy

Who tried and fell out of the sky

I need to find some path that’s new

To reinvent my old virtue !

Oh how I wish that I could be

A riv’let running to the sea

That constant trickles down the drain

The remnants of the night time rain.

A drip, drip, drip upon the wall

Now gathers fast at evenfall

And makes its downward way complete

Runoffs from gully, stream and street.

The volume growing as it flows

Cross valleys, fields and tall hedgerows

Until at last its task is done

And we have breached the river’s run !
