Poetry et al

Suddenly, all those years of reading words – beautiful, mysterious and frightful words were being let out — Naa Takia


“Life is a sorrowful joy…dream and smile
and when you stumble sit and sing.
It’s a jolly good morning Jeshua.”

He lived between the walls of today
a past peeking into tomorrow’s haze
But his thought was a sphere of gratitude.

Staggering from the weight of hunger pressed on him
he would still a smile gift to those little hearts he would never bear

“Life is a sorrowful joy…dream and smile
He would hum
…and when you stumble sit and sing
It’s a jolly good morning Jeshua.”

But when nightfal came
Strength he only had to whisper
As he looked into the stars with delight

“Mommy? Pa…pa?”
“But I don’t know papa.” He said
“Maybe I will now…for I will see them all soon.”

Jeshua had slept on
With his song playing more

“Life is a sorrowful joy…dream and smile
And when you atumble sit and sing
It’s a jolly good morning Jeshua..

Meet Adom, my pretty cousin. Hope to have one of these little pumpkins soon. #ilovekids #adom ~In The Jaws Of An Old Song

Lying in the jaws of an old song
the sunken pieces of a jaded smile
brings an urn of cold grief.
To where the sun is maybe - weary.
