Sunny side up

 

sunnyside

 

My heart sings as the sun shines

Birds join me as they hear my joy

My smile stretches from ear to ear

The brightness motivates me

My eyes dance in the sunlight

Happiness is all around me

So quietly I focus on all that is here

Each wonder is magnificent

Beautiful and shining

Each day my eggs

Are the sunny side up.

skyscraper

Todays poem was inspired by a beautiful skyscraper photo taken of the Twisted Torso in Malmo, Sweeden

twisiting torso

White innocence

Against a deep blue sky

Brightness shinning 

Against the lush green trees

Slowly rising

From foundations deep

You turn with strength

Clockwise, each segment

Spirals relative to the next

Each pentagonal floor

Rotates around its vertical core

Your heart pulsates

Increasing, expanding,

Escaping, breaking free

Earth holds you bound

Yet reaching into the sky

Air flows freely

Peace all around

Your torso twists

Like a human being

Contorting, growing

Beauty in your structure

touch with your eyes

art

Beauty lies within each stroke

each line a definition

vibrant colours combined

softer colours mellow

lines stretch at angles

seeing through the cover

What i see is not what you see

What you have created you love

shows your feeling, your freedom

your energy flow

I look to see what you are showing me

what you are feeling, i embrace

Can i live your life

be what you are?

I cant touch this, kiss this, hold this

I can only touch your work

with my eyes

Disenchantment

 

 

My eyes are closed
A pungent smell wafts into my face
As I gasp it fills my lungs
A dry powdery acid taste hits the back of my throat
I gulp, as I breathe deeply I feel nausea
The smell is penetrating my skin, my clothes
Its rotting stench rises up inside me
I can bare it no longer, my eyes open
A Lilly is placed before me
Purple streaks bleed into the white petals
The orange stamen sheds its powder
How can a thing of such beauty have a perfume that is so foul?
