How Fast it Dries

the jaguar's tear
slides off his single whisker
clouds do sigh

three offspring
dragged into the river's teeth
one remains

they both stretch
the moment of sorrow lost
life leaps on

Death and Grief

Death creeps quietly in
often taking by surprise
one last gasp of air

leaving behind pain
sadness, sorrow and such loss
emptiness of heart

days pass by in grief
each becomes full of torment
as one struggles on

no light just darkness
no end is yet to be found
time they say will heal

for them left behind
no peace, just grief smothering
icy heart with blackness

                                                   Sadness crying rain
                                            Dark storm clouds internal pain
                                               Does the weather change

                                                   Monsoons emotion
                                             The sorrow that's in our skies
                                                Does the weather cry

                                                  Blizzards of our pain               
                                            Flakes of soft petals presence
                                                    Does the sun arise

                                                  Clouds broken in two
                                            The first ray of hope has come
                                                     Does it ever stop

Categories: home,


i am so special
i am so special
i am a winner
not a loser
a conqueror, born to conquer
from zero, to a hero
from nothing, to something
nobody, to somebody
from grass, to grace
came out of darkness
to show my ways
my God created me special
i am so special
heavenly king, i will reign
power over sorrow 
and from pain
good in name
and of fame
good in spirit 
and in mind
one of it kind 
you will never, ever find
i am so special
so so special

                                              First day in school life
                                           sorrow blue innocent face
                                               one silent next cries

                                                Mom was in tension
                                           sister took care at that time
                                               seen tearing eyes

Familial Ties

genes swapped
stirred by unbounded love
family is born

bound by filial bonds
maternal and paternal
relations emerge

love, caring, support
joy and sorrow shared alike
life's music composed

echoing through ages
increasing genetic pool
Malthus' theory

you, me, and Genghis
bound by familial ties
family tree thrives

culture, colors, race
babble, blather, and blubber
siblings world-over

Beauty Lies within Yourself

And All the Miserable Pain you’re dealt

Your Sorrow No One Else Felt

Martial Dances

We live in strange times, my brother 
men make money 
with war dances 
and occupation..
Do you not see the bombardments 
and the pillaging? 
Under the boot 
you are worn out, 
these days 
the sweat of your brow 
no longer serves you! 
Tanks come from distant lands 
passing down your streets 
demanding to know 
why you were born! 
And you can say nothing
Soon, if this continues, 
it will be the course of progress 
to be denied learning
One speaks of the rights of man 
here and there
Do not believe those rumors! 
You see that nothing is in place now! 
We live in strange times my brother, 
arms dealing, 
governing the land
Is it so difficult to understand? 
They sell the merchandise of war! 
Come listen to my counsel
Don't marry, it is unsupportable 
to suffer the massacre of your children
The success of your affairs depends 
on producing fictitious enemies 
to menace..
In this manner 
they take over small countries 
one after the other 
under the pretext of saving them
While you fight amongst yourselves 
others consume your underground resources
What should I tell you; 
do these times plant sorrow 
in your hearts? 
Be a little understanding! 
Increase the number of fratricidal wars, 
divide your people further 
to make the lives of the invaders easier
Do not forget that to destroy love 
requires only this: 
Live in a society without love 
and don't educate anyone..
Live in the clarity of obscurity, 
depend only on yourself! 
The sun rises and sets on time..
the throats of cocks are cut 
that sing before the hour! 
We live in strange times my brother, 
men make money with war dances 
and occupation..
Do you not see the bombardments 
and the pillaging?

The Way My Sorrow Soars

Cutting and Slicing,
Through the wind my sorrow soars,
Letting it, no more.

The Manekken Pis

The Manekken Pis
flowers at his little feet
mourning senseless death

In sorrow for the people of Brussels, and for all whom are victims of cruelty.

(The bronze statue on the corner of Rue de l'Etuve and Rue des Grands Carmes was made in 1619 by Brussels sculptor Hieronimus Duquesnoy the Elder, and is to Brussels what the Statue of Liberty is to Manhattan, or Big Ben is to London.)

three haiku

A fall rose alone
Insipid pink and frozen 
Winter is coming

Playing the fiddle 
Under a street lamp´s sorrow 
Residue of dreams

Snow covered garden 
Plastic roses on the table 
Look obscene

three new haiku

Notes of music
Fell into the ocean 

Rain upon the sea
Softly lamented the loss
The conductor died

After great sorrow 
Gigantic waves crash the shore

Wasted Heart

My wasted heart on loving you
Risen from the ashes anew
All sorrow gone
For now we are one

The Rest

                                      rain begins to fall
                          sorrow borrowed from teardrops
                                   ash and dust look on

The inferno rising a phoenix,
The fire that stopped so many hearts,
The sorrow that ended what was left.

my soul cries to you
O' Lord forgive me receive
as I repent and

stop and turn around
as I repent I am Lord 
and I repent as

my sorrow He hears
Jesus has forgiven me
my soul cries to you
