A child’s birth

A child is born
A child was born
Some thinks early winter
Some thinks mid winter
Others dispute
Couldn’t be winter for the sheep was out!
I have seen shepherds in winter!
Biblical times raging argument
Social media biblical style!
But who cares
For sure it’s family time celebrating
The birth of joy
The birth of being together again
For my mother’s orange flavoured cakes
I believe!

A child is sledging on the snow.

Can I have a second slice?

Barber shop

Happy
(With smiles)
New
(Scissors in hand)
Year
(She says while going on a wild chase
Chasing every hair tip out of place)
To
(I draw blank for thoughts)
You
(Pinned down on the inclining chair
Not in a position to argue
The lady with the shears continues
Mowing my scalp)

And to you
I replied in a little voice
And waited!

Autumn colours

Life burns and its
Colour fades into the
Bright fire
Yellow
Orange
Shades of brown
Red … not too much please
Fire burns and so does the freeze
Green nowhere to be seen

Autumn colours
Stampede over each other in
Rush to shine before the
Freeze of winter
Puts an end to the
Games of flowering and deflowering

Lovers go home
Birds are migrants on the shores
Bees are hungry with no food
Game ends
Life suspends
Falling leaves attempts to
Draw the pain
Draw the suffering
Life burning into
Autumn colours

Shades of brown
Green nowhere…

Last minute

Last minute passed
Too late to catch your breathe
You have to let go

Gentle goodbye

Since you broke my heart
And goodbyes burn a hole
In my soul pain unbearable

So please be gentle
When you say goodbye
I still love you, unwise.

Since I met you accidentally
I can’t sleep
There is your imprint on my soul

So please be gentle
And whisper your goodbye
When you leave

In the morning we repeat
The affair unending
You steal my breathe and essence

So please be gentle
Let me die mercifully
I still love you, unwise

So please
Please
Make it a gentle goodbye.

How do you feel?

A beautiful face on the screen
Another virtual relationship
In another dimension of reality
Started
Ended
In between

Another face on the screen
A news anchor reading news
Un-understood he stares
Startled
Engrossed
Enthralled

How do you feel?

A concerned look on her face
A lost feeling in her eyes
A crackling in her voice
Started
Ended
In between

How do you feel?

I don’t know!

He answers silently.

So tired

Crumbling body at the
End of the day
Collapsing into a
Heap on the
Remains of the
Sofa, last night sofa.

So tired
He whispers in her ears
She looks disgusted
With human nature

Sleep is all that they can
Do
Snoring he continues for an hour or
Two
Disgusted she remains unable to
Cope
With human nature

So tired
He whispers in her ears
And go.
