Sonnet 31 'How High the Bar That Makes A Poet Real'

How high the bar that makes a poet Real!
(He walks in mists, and shadows of himself)
To be a poet, is to burn with steel
Set short time in the forge, the lesser self!
He brands his heart with fiery words, set down
And burns his mind with thinking, ‘til it glows,
He hopes, of sonnets, his will be the Crown,
And hopes that all the brilliance of light, shows!
But, oftener, he writes a humble piece,
A few words cramped into a simple form,
But somehow, in his feelings, a release!
Yes, humble-bumble often is the norm.
And that high bar, he reaches seldom, and
Leaves barefoot footprints in the fruity sand.

The Wisdom of Wine and Gin

My hair has receded and my belly grown fat
There’s hair growing in my ears and I don’t like that
My joints ache all the day and I have troubles with peeing
I’m tired all the time and have glasses for seeing
Gravity has taken over putting life in a downward spin
No wonder I enjoy drinking a little wine and gin

Space Cadet

You'll find it is a good idea,
now and then,
to look at the bigger picture:
see with a broader view
the workings of your fellow men.
A word of advice, if I may,
please, don't stay too long,
be sure to always come back soon!
One learns next to nothing
about mankind
by looking at the earth
while standing on the moon.

NOTE: Another oldie.

Forever a fool

This is too hard

I don’t want to do it

There is simply no way

For me to get through it

Though, often, we confuse

What is hard with what stimulates

We don’t lack the ability

Rather the time that it takes

If we do not practice

Reform what is tough

Then nothing we do

Will prepare us enough

So don’t do what is hard

Do not follow this rule

Never stimulate and prepare

Remain, forever, a fool.

Intelligent Life

Before leaving earth
we should seek to find 
intelligent life…if

we are to identify it elsewhere;

for the universe is
an obvious abundance

while man has yet
to expose his own….

The Patience Of A Frog

Across the pond float lily pads
Upon one sat a frog,
He looked rather startled
His eyes were wide agog.

Had he seen a stalking heron,
Was he scared to move, thought I
Then to my surprise, his tongue shot out
And caught a passing fly.

That wise old frog had patience
It comes to those who wait,
For that fly, it came to him
And that wise old frog, he ate.

The System Failure

It seems we are always
trying to improve – innovate;
which is not the same as
procreate; though the two
can be combined...resulting
in far fewer divorces – maybe?

The problem is, trying always
gets in the way: it’s simple Physics:
takes energy to do motion – leaving
less energy for each rising degree 
of devotion; till the system failure
a fatal delight –

Fake Words

Fake Words – Zamreen Zarook

God have given us mouth,
Not to speak to north and south,
Tongue is given under an oath,
So it’s our duty to protect them both.

Girls chat fake with boys,
Having a notion that the boys are toys,
They often make varied noise,
Thinking to keep a trap on handsome guys.

Boys are also human being,
So it’s not possible being clean,
Things varies in the way they are seen,
So positive thinking will make you keen.

Boys’ minds are pure,
As it is pure bio,
So don’t try to pour vino,
Which will take decades to get cure.

A Stitch In Time

There was a young girl on Long Bay
Her swim shorts began to show fray
Rip spread up the seam
I thought I would scream
When chubby cheeks went on display!

I'm what you call a bug
When humans see me they go UHG

Humans don't care about my needs
Or my sometimes good deeds

But such bothersome things
Roll right off my wings

When I can dip my feet
Blistered from the heat 

In the bird bath for which I'm looking
When on a hot day I'm cooking

But the frog over there
Is beginning to stare

I'm sure he sees me as a meal that's free

So I'll jump quick in this pool
And swim fast like a fool 


A nice cooling splash
And this bug revives fast

Two Grey Hairs Of Wisdom

I have just two grey hairs in my mustache
That keep growing back,under my nose
Why there's just two
I haven't a clue
Soon to be joined by many more,I suppose

They say grey hair grows with wisdom
But with just two hairs under my nose?
No matter what I do
They keep growing through
The beginning of wisdom for me,I suppose

Two grey hairs I've plucked and cut
From my mustache under my nose
For now there's just two
Soon to be joined by quite a few
A lesson learned in wisdom for me,I suppose

you won't find me changed 
from him you knew—just more sure
of all I thought true

In a long ago day no term such as teenager 
was inferred
Upon reaching pubescence adulthood was 
No separate entity were teenage years 
thought to be
Anymore than 20 or 30 even 93
The business of giving separate age a place 
on life's map
Has turned out to be nothing but a load 
of crap
"I'm a teenager" they will wail and whine
Implying "your life is less valuable than 
"I'm your replacement" is what they're 
trying to say
But they should at their feet what's crawling 
on the floor  
Their own replacements will be ready a couple
years or more

A Better Way

There must have been a better way.
There's just no way around it.
Family and friends kept saying so;
But, somehow, I've never found it.

Honestly, I really never looked,
Thought life was treating me well;
But to hear those folks tell it,
My life's a living Hell

Always fraught with bad decisions...
In their opinions, I should say.
I'm sure they all wonder how
I make it through each day.

They could by right, I guess;
Although I must say,
If they were all as happy as I,
They would think they'd found a better way.

Once Plato and Lao-Tzu had their own blog

Since their philosophies thought mighty strong

Expected people much to read

With wisdom themselves to feed

But readers chose instead opinion's fog!

4 Love

Love is a four letter word
she whispered into his ear,

So is four, as is word
he whispered back into her fear,

Such is "you and I"
cried his heart - she could hear,

Their cheeks hugged, eyes kissed
each shedding a single tear.

You send bolts through my skin 
something I was never to 
accomplish with you, when I 
saw you it's like my heart sank 
to my stomach and I was in 
shock my body still my body 
heavy felt like when I moved I 
was about to fall to my knees 
you make me want to get 
inside my brain pick you up and 
take you out pick you one by 
one like a flower because I do 
love you and love you not.

How redundant is it
to give out a word to the wise.
Is it not the fools
who most need the advice?

I had my heart put on auto-pilot,
set to navigate towards you; 

the low-battery signal just came on,
I don't know what to do.

Reflections Over A Cup Of Soup

These three things I have learned today,
no, not just one or two;
The lessons here I have to say
came while I Souped with you.

Real friendship gained has great value
there’s pleasure in it too;
though I expect not all of you
would want my friendship, true?

Another thing I’ve learned is that
when in doubt learn to ask -
‘Tis better to have known the fact
than make a big faux pas.

And still there’s that third lesson here:
Though one thinks he has class,
Soupers will know if not sincere
and be after his a$$.

*To all Soupers, this is not a slam, just having a blast with the gang!

Knot In My Stomach

Annoying knot right in the pit
Of my stomach, please stop it!
You twist and churn with fear and dread
Echo voices in my head

Have you any clue who I am
What I'm up to as a man?
What's your job, why were you hired?
I think you suck, that's it, you're fired

Here's your pink slip, now be gone
You been here now for far too long
Sorry there's no space for you
I've simply too much left to do

I wish you well,  it's been a blast
Redecorate your room at last
Dust the Cobb webs, walls are painted 
Furniture's been re situated 

Loving life, this brand new space
Without you up in my face
Happy feeling at peace with me
At home, in love, completely free
