Day & Night Sounds...

Night sounds
Dripping taps
Barking dogs
The trees bowing at every Wind’s presence.
Night birds fleeting flapping wings playfully
Lone car engines dash past
Tick-tock tick-tock tick-tock goes the clock
My breath in–out in-out in-out ; pause; a sudden yawn….
Eyes close mutely…

Day Sounds
Light streams in raucously
Sudden amplified movements and rustles as if on cue
Burst of loud long song of the day birds
The road grows a new life car after car after car
The clock takes a back seat ticking away dependably
Music, word or thoughts leave our minds
 Borne through our tongues, frowns and body speak
Taking over day; carrying up the lamp of light letting us see, hear, speak, touch.

Fragments of my Heart

Thoughts to words to smiles or hurts
The things we think or do or say
The things we feel or hear or play
Truth shrouded with cloaks of all kinds
Feelings and thoughts are fragments
Of an undone jigsaw puzzle.

How many of us have the presence of mind
To put into place each and every piece
To fit and fix hearts and souls
In the right space?

How long should it take to complete?
When does on give in to defeat?
Why must we always tear it down
once all the pieces are in place?
