David Franks on WEEKLY WALKABOUTSVERSE, E.G., 222 of 230: FROM THE MINORITY (18 hours ago)
Just the way you move like a dragons death dance
Eyes that let everybody know that you are the upper demon
Dont let us go blind in the hell i helped to create
Embrace the size when it walked the earth
Heaven kept it close to its heart, to out smart its tribes
forgetting who was boss were severely punished
We cant escape, just to settle down for something less.

There is a charming little country
it has no sharp stones or huge mountains to obstruct the view
In our heart, we loved this little land.
They even invented the word “HYGGE.”
The reality is quite different, as it turns out to be a den of spies.
they spied on the behalf of the USA; in other Scandinavian countries,
they even bugged the prime Minister of Germany´s p...

If a sword can kill innocent

For then I will move
When certainty calls
Assumptions and presumptions
Imaginations and stories

Rumbles have started growing louder.
Now there appear bright flashes across the sky;
Filled with glee, thundering sadistically.
I admit they appear absolutely splendid to me.
Blue, white, dull grey and yellow.
No one ever says that's a great colour combo.
But is there a sight prettier than the grey clouds
Trying to cover the tints of soft crimson,
That sparkle throughout the infinitude,

Go on walking
From dusk to dawn

Something will surely work
Someone will really help
Pulling me out of this well
I'll keep hoping on

In this life,
You will face challenges
That seem hopeless
And you'll wonder
If--it can be done
How--it can be done
Why--it should be done
But at the end of the day,
The question is not if
Or how, or why--
The question is:
Will you try?

Farewell delicious citrus companion,
For three years we shared our breakfast table,
Breaking the night's fast together as one,
And now, you gone, and I, miserable.
Three-fold were your sweet sunshine hued fruit rinds,
Melded too with sugars from cane filled isles.
Our love connection, forged by taste and mind,
Child of copper-bottomed pot, yielding smiles.

A ray of light

A daily reminder
That we are given an opportunity for a fresh start

Sun beams wash over us

adventure began with massive curiosity,

became reason for each other's frown.

A drifter rides into the town,
Soft-spoken and quite roughly dressed;
His smile and manner win him friends,
Three others are far less impressed.
While he relaxes at the bar,
They gather, spoiling for a fight.
The plain folk start to peel away;
This is a match of wrong and right.
He swigs his drink and spins around;
He picks off one from either side.

We feel broken

For we are each a piece
To the puzzle
A piece meant to be put back in place
