Rio – how can I describe you

Heavenly bodies, beach buffs
Few places can be rough
Football and Futebally,
Sweet corn, ice lollies

miles long beautiful beaches
Not many religious preachers
Sugar loaf mountain
Beautiful fountains

Christ the redeemer
Mercedes and beamers
City flush with cash
Rich and poor clash

Centro, Lapa Furo
Today or tomorrow
Dancing to the tune
Carefree and immune

Favelas cramped, traffic jams
Carriocas their qualms
Living in the paradise
What is your apartment size

Locating towel on the beach
What tricks can you teach
How far can you swim
A city on a whim, unmissable

Observatory

watching intensely
passing youth
colourful dungeon
hiding black truth

aimless roaming
wasted ways
drunken nights
hazy days

self loathing
soon arrives
humanity hatred
fittest survives

street smart
learning game
borrow, steal
absence shame

lurching, searching,
who to blame
birthplace, environs
upbringing claim
poverty, destiny
all the same

Inexplicable space-time continuum

Thinking, joy
Nature’s toy
Playing melody
Life in parody
Nothing permanent
Nothing steady
Just joy of being
Dancing tunes
Lush green dunes
Uncaring days
Eccentric ways
freedom, laughter
Luck is after
Fingers toes
Wriggly woes
Extreme highs
Beautiful lows
ocean calm
wind blows
days whizz by
in moments slow

Pure joy

Purest joy in the sea
Where else I want to be
Happiest moment on the shore
Just get in, lot more in store
you have billions, nothing to show
buying happiness has its limit
take your money, and just go

In plain sight

Fly afar in deep blue sky
longer lasting moments of joy
coming ashore one by one
Ticks and tocks dipped in fun
fabric of time extends, bends
memories remain until the end
