Troubled Times

Trouble Times

Seems like the world is getting harder.
Friends in trouble, towns under water.
Wondering what will be the conclusion,
Of yet another round of promised illusion.

Getting still older getting more tired,
Economy shot, will one be fired?
Over 50s kaput, kids can’t work…
Yet that banker had a stupid smirk!

Can there be some hope in these sad times?
Can there be a righting to the wrongs?
Can we hope to see old folks secure?
Can we hope to see jobs for youth?

Mist

The mist hid all the clarity
Could find no shining light of truth
Omens a lucid rarity
Auguring times of sad confusion.

In an age of constant contact
The mist hid all the clarity
As words became a fog of lies
And synonyms disguised the rest

People lived in an illusive time
Believing they were well-informed
The mist hid all the clarity
Media and high-tech misinformed

A world where king profit governed
The news, just another product
Sold to the highest bidder ’twas
The mist hid all the clarity.

Quatern: Peace

Quatern

Peace

Walking down this gloomy pathway,
Asking why mankind has no peace.
I watch as greed, envy and war,
Smile and compliment each other.

Ideals born in our greedy past,
Walking down this gloomy pathway,
Defined our freedom as mere gain,
And our rights as buying power.

Each man looks out just for himself,
Thinking that he is mighty Ra,
Walking down this gloomy pathway,
Yet mortal is his true nature.

One day surely there will be peace.
When we see that Earth is homeland,
To all mankind and we’ll stop
Walking down this gloomy pathway.

Quatern: Dawn

Dawn

First light, rain falls and raven crows
What a strange morning it has been
Entombed silence but noise within
Dawn arises to life’s greetings.

Here then is the morning’s wtness:
First light, rain falls and raven crows.
The birds have begun their singing,
Courtyard is shadowed in color.

Uncertain is the Sun today,
Life goes on as it often does…
First light, rain falls and raven crows,
Yes, life goes on its merry way.

Each day, a miracle to me,
Nor cry I now to see these clouds.
Listen…the sounds of life, observe!
First light, rain falls and raven crows.

Quatern: Black and White World

vineyardsQuatern

Black and White World

Tired…I want a black and white world.
Without angry passionate reds!
Gone forever dark blue sadness!
Hide from me the green of envy!

A life without shades of somber grey,
Tired…I want a black and white world.
Gone those saturated contrasts,
Give me a world of neutral tones.

A world of unified belief,
Without strife, war and injured grief.
Tired…I want a black and white world.
Of common goals and forbearance.

I’m weary of this mortal coil,
And lest I soon should look away,
I feel that I must surely expire!
Tired…I want a black and white world.

For Black and White Friday

Quatern: Four Seasons

Quatern

Four Seasons

Riding the wind up to the stars,
Magical horses with gold manes,
Carry the faeries to spring fairs
Lightly they will play their bodhráns.

Season feasting comes once again.
Riding the wind up to the stars.
Of magic and bright summer days
I and my true love now will sing,

No man knows from whither we come
Nor whither we shall someday go.
Riding the wind up to the stars,
Now hark, bodhráns will play in fall.

I lay me down weary of life,
For no faeries nor magic lives.
I’ll dream winter dreams then I’ll go,
Riding the wind up to the stars.

bodhrán pronounced bowdrawn

Quatern: feline nature

Feline Nature

Quatern

Feline nature

Daily I walked alone and free
And problems I had not a one.
Living and working just for me,
Everything was much more fun.

I managed my time as I pleased
Daily I walked alone and free
No one to blandish or appease
None with whom I’d to disagree

With him there’s little space for me,
For  I have a feline’s nature.
Daily I walked alone and free,
Limitations don’t make me purr.

Always to have to compromise
Just makes me want to shout and flee
Return to feline paradise…
Daily I walked alone and free.

Quatern (sans rhyme): Photography

Quatern (sans rhyme)

Photography

Riding my moped in the morn.
Weaving  through traffic carefully.
Off to photograph golden light,
Filtering over the mountains.

Early, I begin my daily work.
Riding my moped in the morn.
Seeking beauty as daylight grows
Goldenly over Garda Lake .

Shooting photos is my passion.
My camera is always there.
Riding my moped in the morn,
Or  just walking the city streets.

But the moments of golden light,
Are the moments I love the best.
So I cover up well and go,
Riding my moped in the morn.
