Traps of glittering sand

Hope trapped in
minuscule crystals
translucent image
of what remains

still and will be seen
for teaching a lesson
for generations to come
I was the mason

created quicksand
someone didn’t land
so soft so beautiful
can’t waste such mastery

a sacrifice made
a price was paid
my sweet darling hope
was trapped instead

forever, infinity
no even divinity
could rescue, such
is the genius of its creation

now I roam the earth
mocking with mirth
cursing the birth
of universe and time

unable to cope
such is the effect
everlasting defect
of losing hope

Everything

Mine are mere words,
yours emotions true
What this world be?
Everything, without me,
Nothing, without you!

Amid thousand smiles

smiling thousand faces
scintillating colours,
heart races

don’t waste a moment
on the longest day
in million years

kiss a beautiful
gorgeous stranger,
show no fear

disregard rules,
let go of what
you hold dear

cheek to cheek,
lips to lips,
sugar sips, honey dips,

dive in the vast
ocean of joy
in shoes without laces

you are amid
smiling thousand faces
heart races, then stops!

Gates

As we reach
gates of heaven
please don’t let
go of my hand
I will be lost
May be send back
You understand
My sins are too
great, and
you are the chosen one
with your merciful
love spreading
Message
Allowing safe passage
to all of us
I can be a mere
servant, cleaner
of your palace
in the garden of Eden
if you let me be!

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

On the hook

I can not pretend
anymore, to ignore,
from the heartache
I am sore
your eyes, lovely bait
hooked my heart
line running through straight
I am just a helpless wreck
my error, fatal mistake
no panacea
In the mighty big sea
just crying, dying
me

Dance

Delicate
So delicate
Life’s rhythm
Once disrupted
Goes out of sync
Let me think
How do I link
Broken beads
Torn threads
Undo deeds
Resow seeds
Re link chains
Calming pains
Pump up hearts
Refit parts
Make it work
Make it run
Make it fun
Play it hard
Rhythm restored
Life assured
