An intentional coincidence: shirk
rhymes well with work.

The Thursday Think Tank - #37 lemons

A tall cool glass of lemonade
is always welcome
after a hard day in school.

Invisible Something

Something is moulding
my words
into twisty little things
as i write.

I don't like
that invisible something
shaping my words
into twistly little things.

I just want
to write
as it comes
to me

But this
invisible something
would just not
let go of me.

So how do i
get rid
of this invisible something
telling me how to write?

I had got it
But i've lost it

The pigeon: sitting serenely 
on the window will, waiting for
her egg to hatch.

Teach and cheat,
evil and live,
are unfortunate anagrams.

The Thursday Think Tank - #35 Shadows

Someone's snickering,
Hiding himself and laughing 
At all those foolish,
Desperate people who want to step
Out into light of prominence,
While a lot happens in shadows.

An Observation

An interesting observation:
both poets and musicians
play with sound.

The Thursday Think Tank - #34 I Do Bequeath..

My dear child,
I would like to
bequeath to you
 fiery passion
that i never gave wings
as a child,
in the hope that
you would give it
the wings to fly
and soar high
in the sky.

Do what
you want
out of the
i want to
give you.
But just
give it wings
and don't
let it die
within you.

A house feels
swamped when
a guest refusing
to adjust arrives.

When guests
refusing to adjust arrive,
they often bring
their homes with themselves;
and what you made
your home is what
you grudgingly replace
with what they call home.

Why don't they
make themselves
at home with
your home,
just as you
make yourself
at home
with them?

When for those days
they can make
a home with you
and be happy,
just as you want to
make a home
with them
and be happy.

And when you do
make a home
with each other
you will be happy.

Believe me:
there is nothing
more damaging
than a rumour
floating around.
