Day Of Mourning

Tomorrow, those who died

On the plane shot down last week

Will be memorized nationwide

For many, these times are bleak

Bad News

It seems to have no end
It gets harder to digest now
I try to defend
Faith in humanity, somehow

It’s wrong to choose sides
Between East & West Ukraine
If it’s for Russia the East takes strides,
All opposition will be in vain

Yet, Ukraine brought itself shame
Who really attacked the plane?
Can Russia afford to defame
It’s big seat in the human chain?

I regret the USA isn’t impartial
It should let go of Ukraine’s choices
The EU won’t be universal
It cannot but accept other voices

Then, local customs differ from ours
Everybody is saddened by everybody
Misunderstandings take hours
Now, loss of dignity they embody

One thing I can’t understand
Why air traffic doesn’t avoid
Violent areas–safety it must defend
Yet, cost is what gets them annoyed

@D

Thunder

Thunder forcast
Kept me indoors, for now
Later this week will be a blast
Then I’ll go anyhow

@D

First Time

Tomorrow I’ll sleep on my boat
It’s become a home afloat
An outdoor dominion
After some innovation

@D

Past & Future

Being there for others is good
Future rises from the past–or the present
What fits in the hood
Does not torment

@D

Space

I try to see others as they are
There’s enough I don’t see
Space is a soothing ware
Life itself makes free

@D

Looking Forward

Nice things lie ahead
Let’s have fun
Under who may burn our skin red:
Our Sun

@D

Time

Time lines & convention
Can be an enemy to truth
Don’t make them a disruption
Wisdom may sooth

@D

Further

No more strain
Think ahead a bit
Of, later, jobs to gain
And a time plan to fit

@D

Today

On the canals in the city
Also well-known politians
Enjoy the moments they’re free
A big crowd enjoys the nice conditions

@D

Thunder

Not often I’ve heard
Thunder so heavy
In a pace almost absurd
Lightning was even more heavy

@D

Ramadan

Around 10 pm
Friends break the fast in the park
Or, on boats, they eat

@D

Thought

I thought today
Relations remain good
Not only protecting your way
But also adopting some from the other’s hood

@D

Rain

It seems Autumn
Weather report is good, though
There’s an October glow
On this season of cherry & plum

@D

Summer

Enjoying cherries & plums
On the water
Jasmin, lenten, rose scent comes
When I write my blotter

@D
