The Climb

Clouds behind clouds behind clouds
Mountains after mountains after mountains
A start with no end
An impossible mission
But swollen eyes can’t get me to the other side
Neither can endless whines
I bite my teeth
Pull myself up and climb

The Reflection

Grey and gloomy
Damp and stuffy
Car horns and puddles
Odour and dazzles
The kid dropped his paper plane
He bent down and saw it upside down
The same city
But a different sky
The same cars and marching people
But with lighter spirits
He saw it
In opposite
The child
We all missed

The Puns

Words
Blocks
Build
Create
Discrete infinity
Zillion possibilities
Click
Link
Be surprised by how they pair
They all connect if you dare

The World of Infinity

I can do it
And I will do it
I push my head under water
I kick myself into launch
Ripples and waves
Riddles and songs
Flow of water
Flow of ideas
I dive into serenity
I sink into a world of infinity

The Musicalization

Inject the magic
Give me the potion
Through my ears
Skip my brain
Go straight to my heart
Then my shoulders
Arms
Fingers
Waist
Legs
Feet
Quick
Slow
To the side
Turn around
To the sky
Drop down low

The Poet III

I spilled a few words
I dropped a couple of sentiments
They swim to each other
They stick, they connect, they hug
Bits to pieces
Fragments to works

The Grey-eyed Lady

She never saw
Never at all
The breathtaking stars and rainbow caught in her hair
Her very long, always flying hair
She never realised
Never ever did
The lines and spots left by winds on her face
Her grey eyes focused ahead all the time

The Adjustment II

Tomorrow will come
Look up from your wounds
Today will end
Look for your next sun
It’s a promise
Stumbles before fly
Trust, do trust
Tomorrow will arrive
Tomorrow always arrives on time

The Jar

Expectation
Frustration
Rage
Dismay
My emotions broke the jar
In the air, everything in the air
They rain like confetti
They snow like firework
I implode; I explode
Tears and foam; champ and shivers
And he holds me, he holds me steady
He soothes me, he pats me like a kitty

The Pool

I fell
Down
Downwards
Slowly
Slowly through this thick, dark, muddy water
I drowned
Slow
So slow
Oh no
This disgusting, dirty, messy pool
I feel with my hands
I touch something
A ball
A round hard ball
I rise holding it
I rise with it
Air
Fresh air
Sky
Blue sky
I found an ivory pearl
A perfect, glowing, enchanting pearl
