Reflection: A Cold World

An empathetic mindset and love are what we need for a better world. It’s utterly monstrous weather out there. Each time the breeze touches my skin, I shudder and sneeze. I’m cuddled on the bed, clutching a phone in one hand in a dark room, too lazy to read or even find a light. No […]

Amuse: A Letter to the Squirrels Living in my Roof

New landlords Okay guys, I traveled to my country home or just say my village. I was welcomed by squirrels racing on the rooftop. I thought it was a cat at first but cats don’t fly on tree branches. I finally saw one skinny squirrel holding his chin. It wouldn’t wait for me to get […]

Amuse: Pretty Tomatoes

Sometimes I smirk at myself, They say I’m confused on what I feel, But if I gave a tomato stalk a hug Then maybe what they say is true I laugh at myself… When I arrest the kitchen Searching for raw tomatoes Which refused to grow in my garden I’m angry, don’t ask why, Not […]

A Tale of Two Rats

Gather around the fireplace Sit and have some warmth It is a cold night, is it? But we must tell this tale So listen to what I have to tell! *** Once upon a Time and Place In the great wilderness that lay away from the highway And away from much civility, lived a very […]

First, meeting you was a play of fate On the straight road, which drove West Then you were my companion But now you are my destination

Amuse: The Hen’s tale

First she walks for a while and then turns to stare… She cackles, laughing at the appearance of these slim aliens Wandering about, aimlessly, pushing all manner of carts  And wearing all manner of fleshy things that smell awful One thing is peculiar: these humans change their skins each day, And it is unclear why […]

Musing:  Stressful Days

1 Stressful days take away the joy in my evening meals With back aches and a weakened body I struggle to feed When the day is spent and my thoughts long for my needs,  The stress will then set in; feverish and broken feelings 2 Before this noon, I have had some tea and milk […]

Musing: The Ostrich

1 To you my feathery friend, I write In the greying fields, your fur I sight Dangling by your sides are your wings Your neck is up, for a long time you sing 2 Caw caw, caw caw those are your favorite words The wind is your friend, the soil is your playground The shrub […]

The Rainbow, 1st

1 The rainbow is my favorite color  Her beauty radiates upon the cloud Dressed like a man wearing a talisman Savoring the scent of the sweet airs,  A mirage because the rain won’t fall after all 2 There sits the rainbow across the firmaments Watching quietly, observing the rules of the airs Belittling the heights of […]

My muse: Rejoice

My heart rejoices, but why I can not say!  The sun has risen, the land is golden The firmaments are bright, blue and grey Dews melt, trees dance, flowers open I rejoice for the lights which has come For the love which I see all about me For the little fine hamlet I call home […]

Another August Night, a birthday song

1 I hear the wind howl through the gaps again Calling out, solemnly to the young evening  I hear your name being sung, by the days rhyme  Ten thousand voices; everything singing at the same time 2 Cold evening begat bright celebrations Hopeful; boxes of joy, gifts from the heart Green colors, smell of sweet […]

The moon and night plays

Yells, cries of children disturb the nights silence In the moonlight they dance, they play in the distance Casting shadows upon the lonely tree’d pathway Tumbling on sands, caring not for neither man nor scorpion They make figures, people and tall castles of clay Happily they yell, desiring nothing under the queer moon Meanwhile the […]

Amuse: February Harmattan

Harbinger of Sahara news, king of the queer dust I hail you Your entourage of heavy sand storms and dunes Display her works of art on our glass windows and faces You give us wonderful attire, a ghostly look We wonder, we make guesses of why you love the dust She paints everything; flowers, careless […]

The Tree leaves fall

Permit me a sec before reading this piece. I am pained to see the world destroy green life, I feel the grieve of these wonderful creatures, I feel even worse knowing I might not be able to save all the trees from the cruelty of my own kind. You all know that the trees are […]

I wish I could smile forever Sometimes it does not come so I wish I was to pick comely flowers Out in the fields where grain grow I wish I could help the dying world Though it seems some wish otherwise I wish the nights are free of the cruel cold For those who have […]
