Effort and applause

Crafted with sweat and blood
took seven hundred twenty days
dragged to strange ways
there it lays, reflecting

artistry, craftsmanship
blacksmithing, brush strokes
most desired masterpiece
breath’s final release

admired, smiled and spitted on
admittedly, lately
people have varying taste
some take ages to decide
what they adore, abhor
others in momentary haste,

driven by greed, creed, breed
millions fail, few succeed,
there is nothing else to the deed,
has to be done, by someone

let’s mocking cocking
crowds have their say
it is the ancient way,
how nature decides destiny

Reality

Another one of us has left
Day of reckoning, our end is near
will miss his voice, his deep thought
his soul will be missed, so his heart
scratches, punches, reality bites so hard,
immense grief struck, falling apart
the world will keep moving, show must go
a reminder has come, not long to go

Silk

twist and turns
story churns
just beginning to reveal
Toes on a march
legs on heels
soul in a spell
with silky seals
beautiful, exquisite
layers you peel
Heart is pounding
emotions I feel
kneel and kneel
to honey, milk
to the wondrous
delightful
goddess of silk
