DO NOT TOE THE LINE

DO NOT TOE THE LINE

 

A road that’s not taken

is a road forsaken.

Do not turn your face

from the hectic race.

Follow the bright lights

and achieve great heights.

Do not hang your head in fear

for your time is now and here.

Take your place in the curving line

of others who won’t toe the line.

Rev up your engine and soar

with your foot pressed to the floor.

You have only one chance

in life to sing and dance.

Let this be your time

to not toe the line.

 

WHITE BLANKET OF SNOW

White Blanket of Snow

WHITE BLANKET OF SNOW

The snow is falling.

Flakes float to the ground.

A hush falls across the city.

Few cars dare to brave the roads.

Too soon for building snowmen.

Footsteps have yet to marr

the white surface.

A white blanket.

Sparkling clean.

The city is refreshed.

Its sins covered.

A rebirth.

LIFE GOES BY

I sit on my perch

while life passes by.

Cars and people

always hurrying.

Airplanes in the sky

carrying their heavy loads.

I still sit here on my perch,

calm as can be,

while life goes by.

ON THE ROAD

unreactive
The road ahead is wet and slippery.

The cars shine their red lights for me.

I follow in their slow wake.

Careful not to slip and slide.

Careful to keep my tires on the road.

My eye lids are becoming heavy.

My yawns grow wider.

I must continue on this road.

I must follow the other cars.

VIEW FROM A WINDOW

Open the window.

Let the fresh air inside.

Look out at the bright lights.

The people hurrying on the streets.

The tall buildings.

Are people asleep behind the dark windows?

Are there parties being thrown behind the lit ones?

So much activity.

So much to see.

What is that?

A shooting star.

A sure sign that we are never alone.

Rio de Janeiro | by Slobodan Zecevic

Take a ride in the evening sky.

Above the buildings and cars, where

all begins to look smaller and smaller.

Soar high above the people and noise,

listen to the quiet.

And take time to take a deep breath and think.
