Reindeer Jun 2020
Somewhere in the middle of May
It was for me a hard day
The email read "Sorry! you are not selected"
And yes, it had my entire day affected

Rejection, it was onerous to accept
For my mind seemed to be inept
Deciding to chop off my grief
I stepped out of the door for some relief

And oh! there stood a lady at the door
Whom, my confused fettle allowed to ignore
She was pretty but frail I observed
Maybe she didn't get the care she deserved

"What's the time dear?" were her words to me
Disinterested, I said "half past three"
With glittering eyes she thanked me and went
"You are a kind lady" were the words to me she sent
Just how much can a stranger's good words change our bad day
Reindeer May 2020
There's a weird pleasure

In losing everything
Yet gaining nothing

In giving up all desires
And blowing off all your fires

In losing your bond with someone
You wished to hold it forever

And In finally being able to realize
That there's no place even for goodbyes

Thomas W Case
In a dream,
I see the raven
fly into the night;
his dark song beckoning
from his beak.
Shiny black wings promise
flight,
but to where?

I watch as the
pair of doves bellow
their songs of love
and with a rush of
angels wings
fly heavenward.

I hear the
bluebirds and
sparrows little hum of
hope fade softly into
the afternoon sun,
and I wonder,
what does it all mean?

Then I see them, and
many other kinds of
birds, with beautiful bright
colors,
Parakeets and parrots,
eagles and herons...even
a dodo and they are
all rotting in cages.
Some of the cages are
open,
others are closed,
but all the birds are
lying on their sides,
sad dead eyes,
staring blankly,
finished and flightless.
and I get it.

If I leave
Do I go left
If leaves leave
Are there any left
I left with the leaves
I followed them right
I wanted to know where
They go
When they leave
But I got lost
The leaves left too fast
Leaves have to leave
Naked after fall
Never leave chasing leaves
Unless you know the way
Thankfully
The trees will re-leaf
New dressings in spring
What a relief
Playing with leaves 🍁 looking at our beautiful trees
