Lamp Lights and Music – Dinggedicht – July 14, 2015

- 5 letters

late autumn afternoon
in Champs Elysee
paradise of lamp lights
dancing in the wind …

the smell of cotton candy
fills the air with sweetness
the echoing of music
and call of raucous hawkers
a cacophony of sound …

all the trees are nude now
the leaves have all been swept
the chill seeps into my sweater
as the sun slowly sets …

walking in a daze
smiling at passersby
the children cry for candy
on this late autumn day …

magic fairy lights
came on one by one
and now this magic park
is a shelter in the storm …

innocence and beauty
play upon the trees
come walk with me my darling
once more in paradise.

Paradise – Choka – November 29, 2014


what is paradise
looking up into the sky
the universe twinkles
black material – star-dust
but not paradise
cherry blossoms in spring-time
delicious and sweet
their petals in the wind fall
inspiring poets
so delightful for the soul
but not paradise
the waterfall burbles bright
its waters – laughter
a song like angels voices
but not paradise
a lovers embrace – warming
hearts in harmony
both peaceful and exalting
but not paradise

ah! an instant there and gone
formless – beyond perception
