thoughts from my mind to yours

Summer Sky

And some days,
the lonely heart,
lay on barren lands
and spoke to the summer sky,
which did not ask how or why,
it came to be.

Sonnet in the Sky – Happy Earth Day

In the quiet hum of the rising sun

where hearts sigh,

My beautiful earth gently spun,

writing a sonnet in the sky.

Spinning like nobody was watching,

My earth danced away…

Unaware of the lives it was touching,

in every part of the day.

Splattering the colours of its soul.

my earth sung with the trees

and that song made me whole,

As I felt the morning breeze.

My earth, my earth, my earth, where would I go without you?

Your poetry feeds my soul, you cast away all my blues.

For she is a girl…

Don’t clip her wings,

for she wants to fly,

Higher, than the reach of your eyes,

Don’t…

Don’t break her courage,

for she dares to dream,

awake from a past full of screams,

Don’t…

Don’t put her beneath your notice,

for she is a woman,

a mother , a sister, a daughter, who insists,

on being heard,

Don’t…

For as history has shown,

and future will see,

she is beyond grasp,

she is free…

She will learn what there is to learn,

and she will fly in the clear blue skies,

She will rise after each fall,

and she will conquer all that lies,

in her path…

She will not stay under your oppression,

but please do not torture her with your brutality,

she is stronger than you will ever know,

but set her free, in the name of humanity,

for she is a girl, and she can do everything,

that can possibly be.

Moment

That moment

when the sky unfolded

in perfect symphony

of blue, yellow, orange, red

That moment

when you soared high

with your wings spread

That moment

when your heart surrendered

to the wind

That moment

when you took it all in

That moment

when silence

spoke louder than words

That moment

when your soul

was heard

That moment.
