Serene Attire

Moments comes along in our life to be whatever it is
Common to all or individually wrapped as hers or his
From solitude to calamity is a range we are often dealt
Consuming all and often sticks in memory of how we felt

Be no more of that ego-maniacal bull in a china shop
Turn down the volume of the day to a softer ‘beep bop’
If we are to die in our next breath let’s go swiftly happier
Surely not wanting to carry on our afterlife even crappier

Let’s not worry of what happens now or frightening to see
Nurture a whirlpool of happiness to wonder what might be
Stillness should be ripened and is extraordinarily important
Plague your face with joyful smiles to be a constant sealant

Carry your thought processes in tranquil lethargy and desire
Making your look inner and outwardly in completely new attire
Laze about, take a nap or exercise your body during the day
Happiness and serenity you are seeking is just a thought away

I would personally like to welcome you to Rhyme Island and hope you enjoy your stay as you read my poems. ‘Rhyme Island’ is a fictional place of my own invention where I escape to in mind to pen my thoughts. It is a place where many people now visit from around the globe as ‘fans and followers’ of Rhyme Island. I am very thankful to the tools of virtual travel via the internet and the powers of social media. Using these methods has provided what I call ‘Tourism of Poetry’. People can visit Rhyme Island and I can reach far-away places at little or no cost to enjoy compositions. I’m an individual character, presently alive and well, who has been given a ‘god given’ DNA of creativity to write. Developed through no ending so far of living experiences the topics and stories constantly unfold. I put my craft to situations that call for reason or purpose hopefully in memorable cadences. My poetry can wrench the language with remarkable throw away insights in between straightforward observations and tales. In the narrative I try and include entertaining digression for feelings, thoughts and emotions to arise within the reader. Sometimes elaborate or over-fussy references may seem out of place but are written through my own vision and way of thinking.I sincerely hope you enjoy visiting Rhyme Island and it helps you in making life what you want it to be. “I hope you enjoy some happy reading please, with lots of smiles!”

“happiness and serenity is just a thought away” – such a simple thought and yet so profound, as is the rest of this poem which speaks of letting go of all that bogs us down so that we walk lighter and happier in this world and beyond.. The flow of the words and thoughts is mellifluous and liquid just as the idea of happiness should be. Congratulations for this winning entry.


Serene Revenge

Serene Revenge short poem

Unmoored in twilight, my most visible hands were ready to slam on the moon of stains to bring out the water of life. A secondhand night was waiting for an explosion, which never came. How long will we go to
