False Gods

They are worshipped

as if they are gods

Their words are treated as

sermons of wisdom

πŸŒ‘

They proclaim on climate

change

For they carbon offset

Their private jets don’t count

πŸŒ‘

They moralise on poverty

whilst

they live in luxury and

decadence

πŸŒ‘

Celebrities

the false gods of

our times

A Glimpse

Is it darkness I see

For my eyes are tightly shut

Just emptiness nothing more

πŸŒ‘

Yet I sense more

Dancing lights and shadows

I can behold

πŸŒ‘

Just a deception of the mind

But could be more

A glimpse into someplace unknown

Stillness

Still drops of water on the window

Motionless cat staring

something taken her fancy

πŸŒ‘

Stillness in the air

For nothing is moving

except the slow beat of my heart

πŸŒ‘

A time for quiet contemplation

collect one’s thoughts

For calm and peace is found

Seven Billion

Imagination overdrive

For I’m contemplating

Random acts of kindness

πŸŒ‘

One by each

each day

My humble calculations

πŸŒ‘

Seven billion a day

Seven billion smiles made

Seven billion assistance given

πŸŒ‘

Seven billion

A world I’m imagining

A world I like the sound of

The Mile

The dreaded mile

A journey where I start

to lose my smile

πŸŒ‘

Each step towards doom

Brings much unneeded

gloom

πŸŒ‘

But my heart skips

My glum mood

has a total eclipse

πŸŒ‘

As I observe with wonder

the sound and sight

The moon thereunder

πŸŒ‘

Flowers brightly blooming

Birds cheerfully chanting

Nature becomes all consuming

πŸŒ‘

The joyous mile

A journey where

I can smile
