They whipped outside for a short time and were busy with these for less than an hour.


mapel leaf
Maple Leaf, Upon the grey

Gravel, Green as the grass in summer

Lies, Innocent

Yet so experienced, No longer of

Purpose, Maple Leaf, So bright



not happyNot happy

The only heat I feel comes from the sun

They say take no shit

But I am the exception

The unwanted is all I get

Autumn leaf on the gravel

A bright yellow leaf lying on the gravel

its purpose has been servedmapel leaf on gravel

no longer is it needed

summer is over and here it lies

like an autumn leaf on the gravel

keyholeThe key hole

Not like any other hole in a wall

The key hole has so much power

Who comes in? Who stays out?

Lets us sleep without all doubts

The light switch

The light switch, oh so powerful!

It possesses the divine power, of alternating between darkness and light.light switch

One touch, darkness.

One touch, light.

Nobody knows when the light is going to switch.



No I’mpoem not colorblind, I know the world  is black and white.

There is no gray zone you’re either within or without

Either the world is your oyster -Openings

Or you bury your past – Closure.

A magnanimous poem

Light reflected on its surface       Separating our presence

From what is foreign        Stained by human imprints

Used by many       Left absent recognitiondoor knob

un-noticed               A gatekeeper

No hero                     Not deserved

Yet needed                   A silent guardian

A watchful protector            A door knob

black branchesBlack branches

stretching towards the sky

Green leaves turned red

by the icy autumn wind

Sunlight sipping through

I Hate yougravel

The wounds you cause children you hurt

wheelchairs you keep back

hurt without moving

make noise without talking

cause friction without pulling

Innocent, but oh such dark soul

treOn temperature it all depends – green turns red

and perish to the ground – 

life depends on warmth and comfort

beneath just lies – a lifeless shell

The fallen treefallen tree

The storm had come and the tree stood tall,

until it adopted a horizontal position

There it lied … the fallen tree, admitting defeat to the blistering win

the benchThe Bench

Old grey worn out, wood …

No longer used. The yard desolated ever since the rain came

Water cold as ice. Wind making me shiver

The bench stays abandoned as I go inside.

What will we become?

What will we achieve?

Whom will we love and in what will we believe?












Time invented

Past becomes history

Future has limits

Nothing is infinite

Time warps reality

We’re the creators of our enemy, Oops

so much in life

so muchunnecessary some would say
so much in life

we pick up and place down
so much in life

we need to lose to gain
so much in life

we need when we actually have all.

The Opportunity of Educationopportunity

Youth is exploring, opening doors to expand your horizons,

first you need to leave the shores John Keats famously wrote

“Beauty is truth, truth beauty”

Shame to squander this wonderful opportunity …
