Plethora Uprush(Spring Tide)

a black shadow casts

itself underneath crashing

frothy feisty foam

capped sunset riding waves that

sing life back into her soul

Oink! Oink!

Oink! Oink!

arrogance under

spotlights that shine on faces

whereby make-up can’t

cover up blunders of men

squealing like pigs under oath

Guilt By Association

Guilt By Association

i carry your truths

with me even though you choose

to turn a blind eye

before you’d admit to them

making me an accomplice…

Autumn Overture

Autumn Overture

subtle sunrays peek

in between trees sparkling

on fallen fall spun

golden sun drenched leaves, Autumn’s

soft footprints of season’s end.

Change of Days

Change of Days

You are like the best

friend that came to visit

and now must go away

my only consolation is that

it is autumn’s turn to stay.

Insurmountable Odds

thunder claps boom with

intermittent lightning bolts

zigzagging their way

flashing, lighting up the

mountainous cloud

of billowy,

surging strength

as it climbs

trying desperately

to kiss the sky

rising against

insurmountable odds

just as we all strive to

every day, we are alive.

What We Cannot Deny

What We Cannot Deny

(For ALL The Refugees, (Aylan, 3 & Galip, 5)

lying there face down in the sand

along the coast in his

red shirt, blue shorts, small black shoes

somebody’s sweet child,

their son, lifeless

washed ashore from

their struggle against

immeasurable odds to escape

a war ravaged torn country

only to find the same fate

that they tried so desperately

to flee from

and all some do is argue

over photos that show us

what we have become…
