Castaway

Miles across,
no soul around
Crying and screaming
No way could be found
Ocean keep talking
Waves making sound
Language not certain
Message was clear
You will never see again
Whatever you hold dear
Hallucinations frequent
Mirages abound to bear
Insanity on a stick
Same on front and rear
Steer and steer
Life’s boat, till the end

Nostalgia

On a rainy drench day
I thought of lost time
When language was proper
Abuse worst crime
Money was secondary
Ethics were Prime

Rebels were martyrs
Thoughts had a home
Divine cried over a
lost genius’ tome

Verses were heard
Words carried weight
Philosophical pondering
and humanity’s fate

Music grand masters
Songs sung in soul
Days, many hours
Nirvana achievable goal

Was this all real
or mirage, imagination
Life was much simpler?
mind’s insinuation

Return to the mundane
daily death routine
Passing through passages
Million times seen

Reflections

Faces change
beyond recognition
Shine and worth
doesn’t last
Lies unravel fast,
Clergy loses its sect
leaders forget their act
Reflections on a mirror
of truth and fact

Chameleon

Sky, are you blue, is that true?
Depends, says my good old friend
If you are angry and I agree
I could be red with many dead
Don’t be so mad, making me sad
what happens next
I could be pink, in shame I sink
errors of judgement, I blush and blink
Violet the new colour, becomes this blue
Confused without clue
When you are not around
Nowhere to be found
Unable to hear your sound
I get grey, my clouds in tears
Sapiens destroy sister earth
Scared for her, million fears
I am white, the bright knight
cleaning smog, jealousy, spite
I am dark and black, come soon
Light me up, make me laugh
my funny cousin moon
When the king sun arrives
as court jester in space
I spray colours filling my face
to keep him amused, I hope he stays
That’s the story I could tell today
plenty more still, come another day

Alert

Every moment life changes
Observe, reflect and react
don’t worry much about rumours
be very ready to act on a fact
Have courage to go against the tide
Peers not to admire, elders will chide
have fortitude to stay the course
Loneliness not deter nor does force
Pioneers pains are many never few
May the force be always with you!

Let’s talk in verse

Mon ami and I
God knows why
Said to each other
Let’s not rehearse
Let’s talk in verse

Tales we tell
Fables we say
Of tomorrow
Or yesterday
Let’s not rehearse
Let’s talk in verse

Backbiting,
back stabbing
Gossip we spill
Arm twisting,
blood draining
Morning drill
Let’s not rehearse
Let’s talk in verse

Talk with grocer
Whisper to barber
Morning newsagent
A whistle to a dame
And a call
to a secret agent
Let’s not rehearse
Let’s talk in verse

Lovers tryst
Kisses and much
Asking for forgiveness
Quarrels and such
Let’s not rehearse
Let’s talk in verse
