MIDDAY POETRY – ‘Many Teachers’

The rock taught me to be strong
The eagle taught me to fly high
The train taught me to carry my baggage

The fish taught me to be silent
The river taught me to be in the flow
The ocean taught me to respect

The sun taught me to be warm
The stars taught me to shine
The cuckoo made me mad

Every teacher isn’t a human
Every one of them makes a difference
Open your mind and observe

In awe

MIDNIGHT POETRY – ‘Sudden Shift’

It may be healing
For whatever feeling
To go to the forest
Breathe air at its best


Cookies and tea
Fell inside me
Turn a new leaf
No more beef


Walk or ride
Move with pride
No smelly fumes
Silence no booms


Crack of a dawn
My daily yawn
Instead of papers
Fresh flower vapors


Coffee forgotten brew
Kombucha with a dew
Clap my hands to chant
My diet now fully plant


Om and hum feel the beat
Lift your bum bare both feet
Rite of passage in middle age
Breaking the bond fleeing the cage


Touch of breeze on my face
Being gifted divine grace
Sudden shift from foggy mind
Walking gently and being kind


Now stop and breathe

MIDNIGHT POETRY-‘When Silence Screams’

Wind changed to breeze
All big bright ideas
Shaved into freeze

What could be worse
To travel not too far
On a wooden horse

Staring at the screen
Numbed by the system
Whip up the cream

Away from the mass
Pretending to live a life
Tucked away in grass

Many a day seldom a night
Tinned pelicans
Too heavy for a flight

In the backyard
Barbie on front lawn
House paid by card

Credit or debit
Visa the new Master
Love it and dread it

Quality of sleep
Half lost night
Rabbit hole too deep

Vivid imagery dreams
After a few shots
Only silence screams

Beep beep
Deafness of sound
Deep sleep
