Purple rage

Purple madness emerged with black death;
Drums and dulcimers are the words now that were said,
Shrilling masquerade dresses the faces,
Modern design and fool norms are the old disgraces.

Hoping bee

Hope is the only bee
that makes honey without flowers…

…and that lil drop of honey
     is the only sweetness in my bitter life
       is the only, but enough for a hoping bee,
         to buzz: one day I will get back my flower.

A significant moment

There are times when you want to see a movie
just for a scene or for an image,
to listen to a song, to recite a poem
just for a line, just for one word
that gives meaning to all.

As there are times when you live with someone
just for that colorless, wordless moment,
compared to the years being so insignificant,
still that moment means all what is life,
saying that you are needed.
