Monday WRites 124










RAINDROPS ON LEAVES
Howling winds what are they saying
so important
in the face of
morning sunshine

Yon pigeons in the eaves are shushed
not a coo coo
not a shuffle
only silence

Pellets from rain clouds the leaves hold
an offering
from the heavens
just like manna

[the Emperor's new clothes, image from google dot com]

CLOTHES SOO FINE
They said to him "you look just fine"
He who sort pleasure of boudoir wine
Oh what a mess
For this poor tess
To walk the streets sans clothes a stein

To walk the streets sans clothes a stein
Laughter they pinned to mockery shrine
Pompous to unctous zeal
Emperor clad thus surreal
They said to him "you look just fine"

PEACE SEPTEMBER PEACE!
so peace the night, you winds of woe,
and gently hush you leaves and branches,
no more rustle of the tears in flight,
no more wade the floodgates to dismay,

so hush your howls September sprites,
and dry those tears clouds, lament no more

let peace then hammer nails of repair,
roots to trees be anchors once more,
peace! sweet peace, banish thee nightmare,
let warmth of sun to human hearts endure.

Monday WRites 123

[cool planets 3d graphics mobile wallpaper from google dot com]


E[VER] LIFE?
[plug in part] of the charger gets twisted and breaks off
enough juice left [about 22 %] to start pulling hairs off scalp

then, shameless question to self, via smart brain
was there L[ife] before the cell phone?

all hours of insominia nights tap tapping to the light of
'Farmville Tropic Escape' or 'Fairway Solitaire'

moon fades to missing overused burn of fingers
daylight to come, Cellular Planet to go, fast landing

to the mall, ah the mall! for new charger new juice
was there E[ver] life before the cell phone gaming?

STRANGERS
My feet shod in sneakers
[echo] greeters
I walk in glorious sun
[echo] fun
The door of the kiosk says PUSH
[echo] bush
Song birds poem the sky
[echo] high

He is before me in the queue
[echo] who
I wish his eyes were violet
[echo] triolet

Then I could poem him in colour
[echo] dollar
For his thoughts by and by
[echo] Hi

Monday WRites 122

[a google dot com image]

BELIEVE IN HIM
Be a good example
Ever speak His holy name
Live in the hope of His promise
Invite Him into your heart
Encourage others to praise
Verily verily He spoke
Each miracle to invoke

Instructing the way of life
No other could have lifted

His cross of Calvary
In Him is forgiveness and mercy
Messiah, anointed one of God
BELIEVE IN HIM  © gillena cox 2010

BOOK OF WORDS
A postage stamp, a convenient
Scar of mimicry
Your cool sentiment , all lies

I could return thus postcard
Address unknown
But to stoop to your mimicry

No no I decree more finesse
To starlight and twinkle
And my forever happy heart
