SING ME A SONG

Sing me a song.

Write me a melody.

Stroke the keys.

Massage the ivories.

Raise your voice high

So I can hear your words.

Words of hope and loss.

Sing them loud and clear.

I close my eyes.

I can hear your words.

I see your fingers

Stroking the keys.

The words take flight.

They reverberate through time.

They leave your lips

To land on mine.

A sweet melody

To soothe my advancing years.

A pretty song

To fill my empty soul.

HAIKU OF GOODBYE

galactic-castle

HAIKU OF GOODBYE

The galaxy shines.

In awe of the human race.

It makes my heart race.

I cannot see far.

But I know what is right here.

It’s not far from here.

Heaven covers us.

Protects above and below.

To it, I must go.

Goodbye to my friends.

Time comes to an abrupt end.

I shine for each friend.

WHAT MIGHT THE FUTURE HOLD?

What might the near future hold?

Buildings of concrete and stone.

We might be traveling by flying cars,

Far above the trees and among the stars.

Sunlight will only be a reflection,

A lighted saber for our protection.

This future might be hard to bear,

A future that might be too near.
