Flashing Lights

I know where I’m going,
Though I’m in no rush to get there.
I have time to myself,
And I will let my journey take me,
To where my fate decides.

I see some flashing lights across the road
Which I’ve not seen before, much less visited.
Keeping to my personal mantra,
And my curiosity raised,
I cross the road,
Wandering if this will be the greatest,
Or more likely,
Worst bar, that I’ve ever been to.

As I get closer
I can hear music,
To go with the flashing lights;
This seems promising.

I’m greeted by two attractive girls at the entrance,
My mind re-evaluates
That this might be a restaurant,
Or a strip club,
But not a bar.

I walk down the stairs,
My curiosity further raised;
After all ‘what’s the worst that can happen?’
I tell myself,
15 minutes to drink a beer
And then move onto another place.
A no lose situation.

I enter.
A smart place,
Good décor,
Nice music,
But few people;
I should’ve known,
There were no cars outside.

I sit,
Order a beer,
Write this little poem
About entering an unknown bar
Purely on the basis that there were flashing lights,
Finish my beer,
And continue my night time walk.

City Lights

City Lights short poem

City lights so bright Alluring, fascinating sight Like earthly stars from afar A far away kingdom beyond par City buildings so tall Their peaks cannot be seen at all Grand cold concrete structures Stand aloof as if part of nature

Northern Lights

Northern Lights short poem

Greenness in the upward horizon with the twinkling lights in the farthest sky Blue moving and merging with purple specks between Stonehenge left standing from ancient times. My thinking of this back to travel standing within the pillars, a sense
