Poetry Blogs (leisure)
I could get used to this leisurely life.
Wake up without an alarm.
Stretch, yawn, linger on.
Get my long list of to do things done.
Read, write, learn without interruptions.
Walking a snail’s pace on the treadmill while catching up on world news...
Unprecedented attempts to slow the spread of a new kind of flu leaves me wondering what more we can do?
Quiet calm surrounds m...

for simple pleasures of conquest
we played marbles, for marbles
with marbles again and again
and bagged them
safe and drawstring tight
a natural balance of loss and gain.
Like glass eyes they spun in our palm sockets
leapt and sparkled
in gutters or playgrounds
from three finger cradles
whirling swirling in small tracks

Full set of golf clubs for sale I saw

where men can be men
old sorties are relived
oh! and I nearly forgot
the fees, a fine

I spotted a slip of paper
Blowing around the floor
Nobody else had noticed it
So I had to go and explore
I chased it around the pavement
Through the bus station door it blew
I managed to catch it and pick it up
It was last weekend's lottery ticket, who knew?
It was for the big, multi rollover
Thirty million they said
And they were still seeking the winner
All sorts were going thro...

SWIM IN THE SEA
Dark blue ocean has so many moods, just like a person.
If you ever make one mistake you will pay for it dearly with
life; this ocean is a thing of beauty and of mystery, yet deadly.
So many planes and ships have disappeared into the dark waters –
who knows where they are now?
People sail the seas on such flimsy craft, old sea rafts and dangero...
