Hands

How much you have seen
Where have you been
What have you done
What have you won
Bare hands, hard work
Clearing cleaning others dirt
No amount in pension
no car no mansion
Just me and my brush
Nothing urgent no rush
All my dreams got crushed
Long long time ago

Deadwood

Life has passed
nothing to show
spending last days
vegetative state
In early years
should have stayed late
made people laugh
changed my fate
now my dear
It’s too late

Why

Centuries passed
stood my ground
generations born
Kings sworn
suffered all seasons
and more, before
butchered
slaughtered
was cut down
roots blown
on a piece of land
you ‘own’

Libation

Red grapes essence
running through veins
Thought wanders far
Merriment without reins
Mind implodes, joy explodes
Dancing through expansive plains
your smiling widening lips
Rest utterly forgotten, mind dips,
Memory slips unforgettable moments

Canvas and frame

scorching heat
head to toe sweat
hands getting tired
nails are wet
Hard work,
heart’s work
Created art work
priceless,
sold for pennies
true artists few
fakes so many

It’s time

When the time is up
let me see your face
touch your lips
listen to your heart
last breath release
love will increase
soul will not cease
death in absolute peace

Cross mannequin

Why don’t you talk
Why don’t you listen
Why don’t you care
That is not so fair
Stop looking at your phone
Please listen to my moan
Everyday it is something else
Could be work, hard sells
Or this eternal sitting still
Life so boring, grinding mill
Time doesn’t pass, time kills
I know, you have your bills
Friendly chats, business skills
Here is a request, a beg from me
Just move me a little everyday
Give me a hug, something nice to say
Don’t run away, please stay
Will make me happy, make me gay
Say and say, all you secrets to me,
I am safe, all the way
