Another Perspective

image

Having moved on
The views change
Disclosing
Another perspective
Not skewered
But clear as day
And as the world turns
So we see
A new way of looking at things
With humour
With childlike delight
With tempered sight
Garnering fresh meaning
From Life’s plight
Of moulding us humans
Into what we would be not
Unless such vision
Had been our lot
Choices over
We reap our fruit
Of Wisdom or Pain
Of Love or Death
Or Financial Success
The Eyes once eager
Now receive
The longed-for riches
Of perfetness
And grateful solace
With blissful looks
And satedness

Another Bright Day

Another bright day
And the sun is shining-
Another bright day
Sunday.

Another bright day
And flowers are blooming-
Another bright day
Monday.

Another bright day
And the rain is falling-
Another bright day
Tuesday.

Another bright day
And friends are calling-
Another bright day
Wednesday.

Another bright day
And the cooker is broken-
Another bright day
Thursday.

Another bright day
And music is playing-
Another bright day
Friday.

Another bright day
And the work is completed-
Another bright day
Saturday.

Another bright day
And my diary is full-
Another bright day
Everyday.

Going Around In A Circle

image

Going around in a circle
Circularly circulating
Pondering:
Which way to go?

A circle is not a direction
Neither is it a destination
Yet some are always going there:
Around in a circle.

Circumnavigating the issue
Circumventing the point
Spinning confusedly:
Lost.

Going around in a circle
Not approaching
(even in a roundabout way)
But repeatedly repeating:
Hoping things would change.

Litter Not My Mind

image

Litter not my mind
With your unwholesome thoughts .
Litter not my mind
With your foolish ideas.

Litter not my mind
With your silly longings.
Litter not my mind
With your spiteful words.

Litter not my mind.

My mind is as a bed of Roses
Fragrant with love.
With peace and beauty garlanded
With truth and justice underlaid
With ne’er a thorn to punish
Those resting there.
