Literati

No need for flowers
When your words build towers.
If meaning is conveyed
All is not lost
Complexity does not always a poet make.

Yes there is beauty in finding the perfect word
The perfect formation
A superb creation
Those words that leave literati gasping
But joy can also be found in beautiful simplicity
In a thought not over-processed, not pulverised
One whose very essence remains untouched
One that reaches the masses, all the classes
That speaks for us all
That has us enthralled 

So fear not 
Or compare your words with others
Do not seek to alter your voice.
Yes this is a craft 
But one of many forms
Of many facets
And yours has assets 
Of its own.

Carols By Candlelight

travelingtogether

I saw the glow as I trudged home in the dark

And imagined the beautiful voices

The high ceilings

The peace.The lulling peace.

I paused. Maybe I would join you.

Maybe I would sing to heaven

And bask in the candlelight

But then I remembered

That you don’t accept me as I am.

You say ‘all are welcome’

But you consider  me sinner

More sinful than the rest.

I can’t join you.

I can’t cast my eyes to heaven

When my destination is sulphur.

Sulffer.

And I am sorry. I really am.

There is so much that I believe in

It’s a pity you don’t believe in me.

Bubblegum

You see me only, when I’m bubblegum,

Lots of fun

Pink and light

Oh what a sight !

You will think I’m sugar

A little too sweet

Good in small doses

An occasional treat

But when I pop

Gone is my air

The bubble I was

Is no longer there.

I’m stuck to your face

Unpleasant and sticky

Much more complicated

Much more tricky

I may appear fluffy

I may appear pink

But I never seem to float

I just tend to sink
