There Are Only Eyes Appearing Above The Surface

There are only eyes appearing above the surface
in the brown water of the river's pool
before they again disappear without a trace.
There are only eyes appearing above the surface
when it notices a prey, are covered by the water-curtain
where the crocodile hides in the depths of the river,
there are only eyes appearing above the surface
in the brown water of the river's pool.

Highway of life

From the moment you are born you are totally unaware
That you are driving on a highway of life, nobody knows where

On a highway of life there is no sign
To show who's responsible for its design

There are only two rules, that I enforce
You cannot stop, you cannot drive in reverse

Drinking and driving make your speed to increase
On the highway of life there is no police

Driving fast is fun and all
You shall never be late to your own funeral

I may have to correct what I said before
You are not a driver and therefore

As a passenger you have even less control
Less desire and insensitive to achieve my goal

To achieve first goal is to become aware
That the highway of life is a road to nowhere

A question like this would often arise
If I achieved the goal, where is my prize?

The goals are fuzzy, the end's not in sight
For as long as you can just enjoy the ride!

The next step is even more crazy
You have to rip the cord and make an exit

If you did well your homework
Accept my congratulations, I will stop the clock

You can go back, you can have some rest
Time no longer exist… You have passed the test!

Quatrain #206 - There's only One God......

There's only One God Eternal irrespective of how many religions there all are,
because each is a different path one takes to realise Him shown by an Avatar.
There are many races of people each with their own culture, language and locality,
which are all part of the One Human Race, that in unique ways worship That Deity.

In That Foreign Land

amidst the crowd
there are only two of you
speaking
your own language and
you walk with them
and your feet are tired
and there is no
talking, as though
both of you are stranded
in an island
where monkeys and birds
only exist

and then you dream of home
and you even promise
that your enemies are
much better than them
because at least
you can do a lot of
talking and shouting
and quarreling and that
in such actions, at least,
you have a world of sounds
that you can
take with you and understand
and preoccupy with
when the night comes.

Concealing That Nocturnal Existence....

you realize that there is nothing that you keep
or can

at night a stranger of the house talks about
a departure

you listen as he is putting music to his flute
it is a sad one

it is like the sonorous sound of the rain at night
it is windy

the departure shall be early before the sun comes up
you never sleep

anticipating the excitement of the departure
there are only two of you

before the sun comes up between the two hills
both of you have already dissolve in the distance

blend with the trees, walk on grasses,
there are no traces, the two of you never exist

If the heart stops for more than two minutes, you have massive brain death. There are only two minutes between our conscious world and zero. That's how fragile our consciousness is.

If each of your time steps is one week long, you are not modeling the stock price terribly well over a one-week time period, because you are saying that there are only two possible outcomes.

John Le Carre

I think I'm in the same mood as ever, but in some ways more mature. I guess you could say that, at 65, when you've seen the world shape up as I have, there are only two things you can do: laugh or kill yourself.

To reduce this claim of slavery to an absurdity, it is only necessary to add that there are only two states in which slaves are a majority, and not one in which the slaveholders are not a very disproportionate minority.

There Are Times, My Darling

There are times, my darling
that you are far away
that loneliness
along with dusk sneaks in
that the calls of the plovers
cut right through the dark night
and I am wondering
what there is still remaining
between you and me?

When I was young, I was sure of many things now there are only two things of which I am sure one is, that I am a miserable sinner and the other, that Christ is an all-sufficient Saviour. He is well-taught who learns these two lessons.

Once Upon A Time There Were Long Poems

ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WERE LONG POEMS

Once upon a time there were long poems that told a story-
Now there are only small poems
That tell a feeling.

This is a small poem
And I am a small poet
And we are all small readers
Who are always losing the poem
By rushing on to the next thing.

Only Here for That Purpose

If I attempted to please...
I would leave nothing accomplished.
Nothing that would satisfy my urge,
To leave something that validates...
The steps I placed here on Earth.

And that is more important to me,
Than jumping over fences.
Or feeding the whims of those who plead,
Of a need for attention they seldom get.
And many are only here for that purpose to experience.

New Year's Eve

There are only two things now,
The great black night scooped out
And this fireglow.

This fireglow, the core,
And we the two ripe pips
That are held in store.

Listen, the darkness rings
As it circulates round our fire.
Take off your things.

Your shoulders, your bruised throat!
You breasts, your nakedness!
This fiery coat!

As the darkness flickers and dips,
As the firelight falls and leaps
From your feet to your lips!

In Manila

i told her
there are only two kinds of people
in manila: the swindler and the swindled

i warned her

last night she cried
she occupied the seat of the latter

i told her
there is nothing to worry

the swindled can still recover
after a fall

she learned the hard way
that night she could not sleep

i told her
it is normal for one to be swindled

of which i chided her
if she wants to take revenge

swindle another one
it makes thing even.

There Is Only God

There is only God,
There is only love,
There is only friendship,
There are only kind beliefs
To guide us through storms and sorrows,
To see us through sadness unimaginable.

The current days are darkness
And desolate clouds,
But the soul is sunlight
Mingled with flowers,
I’d walk with you in a city park
If I could;

While I’m breathing,
I’ll put my poems in a bouquet for you
And try to be heroic in the pursuit of hope
And seeing you smile in a pleasant place.

There Are Many Who Are Talented

There are many with gifts,
That are relevant as presented.
There are many who are talented,
With a seeking to reach heights.
And there are those who were born,
For the purpose of igniting thought.
And doing this without a challenge...
Since a naturalness given to them,
Is unselfishly offered to others brought.
However...
Hopefully an attention sought is caught!
Or it would defeat the purpose of a reach.
And nothing delivered sinks in as taught.
With intended depth remaining surfaced.
And a leaking occurs few see as a need.

Out Of 15 Only Two

as i told you
it is the survival of the fittest
but there is no one to blame
for your exclusion

there is also luck
the sister of chance

you prayed but it
was not heard
heaven is too far
perhaps it has closed
its ears
to your pleas

there are no unheard prayers
there are only those which cannot be granted
because they are not
good for you
the gods know better
we are weaker


there are seasons
some flowers do not bloom for this month
they wait
others compromise only
on some years
not all trees bear fruit in November
there is such word
as waiting

do not give up
try again
persist and be patient
soon your time shall come
it is not a lie....

The Storm And The Bush

There are only two things in the world—
The storm in the air and the stretch of green leaves;
The flesh of the forest that quivers and heaves
As the blast on its bosom is hurled.
Above is the whip of the wind
That scourges the cowering forest beneath:
The Storm spits the hiss of the hail from his teeth,
And leaves the world writhing behind!
Like a beast that is bound in a cage
When the keeper's lash lights and the keeper's goad stings,
Each tree his great limbs to his torturer flings
In a groaning and impotent rage.
As the leaves to a fiercer gust lean
The wind throws their undersides upward to sight,
And the foam of the forest-sea flashes to white
Out over full fathoms of green.
