A lie is a mistruth Told purposefully. A truth is an admission Of a lie. A penny for your thoughts - I'd pay a pound For the politician's mic on hustings To lose sound. For distortion's an illusion That misrepresents - Extravagantly foolish - People vent Their anger - Meet Frustration - … Continue reading The eyes have it!
A smile’s what you see in summer When the sunshine stays awhile Happiness follows suit – Dressed to impress, in fashion’s latest style Where is undue wariness? Where have despair and illness gone? Could they not stand the heat that day – The day that sunshine shone? I’ve been down in the valley Where despair … Continue reading My garden’s seed
Terrified, I looked beyond My ocean, river, Lake – my pond Tentative, I thought I heard The high tide lap ‘gainst beach-heads prize The rock jumps from the page. A vision’s sight With sty in eye Urbanised, I look away – ‘Scraper, McMansion – Mortified I reminisce in disbelief As faith … Continue reading Taken
