Times Too Little

Times Too Little ballad

Photo by steve p2008


As twilight fades into the night,
In the silence, I wonder
bewitching fragrance from the queen of the night,
tossed up by the strong wind
reaches the moon lit sky
tantalizing the air
As on musky Earth I lay
soft breeze singing a sweet lullaby

Heavenly bodies look down at me,
I shyly slumber into a midnight dream
Building magnificent castles from nothing
While the Earth revolves me to another day,
Soft warm sunshine breakfasting due drops on grass
I hear your voice like a spear,
Reminding me I am just a particle
A fragment of your heart
Wondering through lanes of memory,
Peering around to see you again

Times like a merry go round
A child enjoys the moment not wanting it to end
When the horses stand still,
At the end of the carnival
I hear the cry
Of the child seeking to repeat the joy ride
Times too little

The world is a race If you want to succeed, pick up your pace Keep running, focus, put in extra hours, fly solo But doesn’t this make you feel empty and hollow? Be yourself, be silly, be alive, spread joy

Little Boy In A Dream

Little Boy In A Dream short poem

I hear clomps through the doorway. Are they here to take me away? Should I scream for help? Do they care? Or should I leave my room and dare? What have they come in search of? What do I have

Against The Times

Against The Times short poem

Lipped-wet, Counterfeits. Fakes neither audible nor visible. The moment dies in our hands. It was a non- happening. Silence booms destroying the palace, of dreams. I should have become the scissors. This poem is not charitable gnawing at the underlip

A Hymn To Old Times

A Hymn To Old Times prose poem

(1) In old time, Before the sun stopped circling around us; Before it started to work as a painter of our shadows and the shadow of time over place; Before it adopted the hobby to boil sand inside a vessel
