Happy. Vcl©️

My eyes are closed

Words rattle

Round and round

Seek to escape

Long to express themselves

Larger than life

Squeeze, stretch

Through the almost shut door

Of night

Tight.

Shut out the world

All cancerous words

I cannot bear the sight

Shake those happy letters

From the dreamland tree

Shake them free

Gaze upon their transparency

As they arrange themselves

Hope shines bright

Right .

Dec 05 2013 Ode to Nelson Mandela

nelson mandelaOde to Nelson Mandela
I cannot linger
When fair treatment falters
It’s warm embrace
Lost
I shiver in my oneness.

I cannot dwell on
Who defines greatness
But bask in the memory
Mindful
That I have lived in it’s time.
