Therapeutic

The seascape, verdant in color,

Coalesces green and blue hues in favor

Of reds, purples, and yellows of sunsets, brighter.

The water flows in cadence with my heart,

A beat that travels within the water’s part.

I fling myself within it, swimming at my leisure; start.

Enjoying the feel of the silky water

As it envelopes my body with heat, that’s better

Than being alone as I sweep away tears: left for later.

They would stain my paper and ink, Telling me it was time for a break

From life’s realities that weigh me on a brink.

At the sea, the smells, painted sky,

The sounds of crashing waves hitting the shore by

The second, are therapy for a broken soul to fly.

React to Darkness

The world runs around and bucks you

Off your trajectory with minutiea that drive you

Up a wall, and down into darkness which blinds

Your senses that either gives adrenaline or freezes

You into a statue that’s blind, deaf, and dumb.

Your vision turns into bright starts that short-

Circuit your mind with blinding light whose sport

Is to suppress your logic, embracing emotions

That turn you deaf to all evidence against your passions.

Those then steal your ability to speak your mind.

As the world moves round and round, like a merry

Go round, so do you try to stave off the shocks that ferry

You into dismay as experiences are disillusioningly

Petrifying, with their obstacles and demands

On your taking a stand outside your comfort zones.

Stay the course.

Stand tall.

Savor each experience.

Strengthen your faith with failure or success.

Sever negative relationships,

And let your self-confidence emerge

A snow white pigeon of peace and verve of life.

Short


Short; I’ve learned that life is too short,
What are the necessities of such a sport?

Live, live, little by little,  enjoy it all,
Your childhood,  youth, adulthood,  cycled circle

Of flaws that turn into strengths
That raise you up to a pinnacle of breaths

That feel uniquely important for you not to fall.
The abyss below can be a starkly black ball,

Or a bright sunny day filled with fun and play.
Enjoy the rainbows that come after a rainy day.

Those days are infrequent,  transient,
And easily missed if you’re mired in your own dejected

Despair, whose darkness can’t be pierced
By the frivolity, fun, smiles, laughter of  living and dead.

Don’t,  don’t let that despair put you down,
Scare it away with your strength of will!!!!

Baby Steps

I follow an inchoate process

That takes time and intellect to press

Into a favorable plan of action to achieve a pass.

The formless idea is hammered out into steps

That are manageable and achievable. It helps

That you don’t overstep or reach failures.

The impeeding obstacles to your goal

Are miniscule when achievable,

And overwhelming if not divisible.

Plan, organize, schedule, disciplines,

Are all part and parcel of your methods

To solve problems.

However, the most important piece

Is the creativity of the solution in the abundance

Of ways to achieve your goals.

Be fierce.

Be assertive and pierce

The bullseye with your brilliance.

Song from Home

Hello, how are you?
It’s been too long since you last called.
Home, hearth, heart, haven are all stalled
As I’ve emigrated into a new land away from you.

I’d plan my call today,  and time would slip away.
I’d plan to call next week, and find that work flays.
I’d plan to call next month, and worry about what to say.
I’d plan to call within a year and fall short of my plays.

Another year goes by, and fear sets in,
If you call, what do you say?
Your understanding of their trials are hypothetical,
And their consideration of your is stereotypical.
Do you call, or let them hang, alone in …

The wonder is those at home will adore
Hearing your voice, struggles, accomplishments,
That boost you to a fore ,
That is unattainable where they are.

Does this boost jealousy and chain your
Connection, turning it stale and hollow?
Or do you put an effort into a tour
Of empathy, compassion that help you flow?

Lone

One

Lonely

Boy, shy

Tries making

A friend flying

Into the unknown,

Lonely. One. Loneliest

Number ever. It tests hardest

When you’re surrounded by familys’

Best, whose envy alienates you farthest.

Standing alone with a whirring world

That’s confusing, struggling blind,

Into unknowns that surround,

Bind your moves. Loud

Is the thunder around

That drowns bad

Decisions

Needing

Greater

Care.

Important Insignificance

The fox enveigled the cheese from the raven,

The child wheedles the cookies from parent,

The dog raises his puppy eyes and melts your heart.

The birds twitter and flutter coaxing attention,

The flower shyly moves its petals to receive

It’s caresses from the sun’s rays: nutrition!

The man wads his wallet to empress,

While the woman wears her war paint as not to depress;

The elderly lament their youth, and try to cajole

Their kin into longer and more frequent visits.

While the individual struggles to beguile themselves

Into believing they’re valued more than they are!

Ironically, they lack the vision to see their importance,

That drives jealousy in others in constant

Turmoil with themselves, for those lack your presence!
