Starlight Memories

Circles of sweet,

Red-striped joy,

Rest you do,

Upon my

Nestling tongue.

Waves of peppermint

Cover my mouth,

Like the scarf

Upon my shoulders.

Sugary sweet nectar,

Teases my taste buds.

Your clear garments..,


I dispose of casually,

As my tongue and

Your taste becomes


Chasing away

The staleness in my mouth,

You are a decadent dual-threat.

Your round swirling shape

calls me to home,

with snow and love,

With carols sung.

A sweet memory upon the tongue!


Get It Right

Silent sadness

of ages

Past and future

Blanket the blue

Spinning world.

Minds weep

Voicelessly crying…


Bouncing babies


In parents arms

wonder why?

The grey, grown

Grandparents smiling,

Staring, shaking

Wonder how?,

As they stare

Into the boundless future

Of the newly born offspring.

We wonder, as we

Watch the world,


Why them?

When will it stop?

When children are not

Born into fear…

It will stop!

We must start getting it right,

We can not leave our failings to them
