Anger

The Living Poetry prompt – Angry

hey
you little spark
I am sorry that
I keep denying you, rejecting you
blaming you for ruining everything
you suffer for my immature behaviour
will you forgive me

Choice

tread upon unknown ground
where thorn never grows
and the thistle never springs up
my instinct tells me
to follow the guiding light
narrow is the way to paradise

I Run to You

I have never met you,
and yet you know me.
I can’t help but move closer.

I have spent all my life
to build this facade
for the world to see.
How come you see my anima?
My inner child runs to you.

Do I know you?
Why do you feel like home to me?
I love you!

Unfailing Heart

her heart endured a lot

it was once
provoked to anger by betrayal
broken as a result of blunt rejection
too tired too weak to respond
bled out to a slow death

and yet
her heart is still
raw
open
fighting
imbued with passion

City Vibe

the city never sleeps
last night’s vibrancy
lingers around the morning twilight
flows into a new day’s excitement

Waratah

This poem is based on the Dreamtime Story of the Waratah

you were once white and wild
until the hawk attacked the wonga pigeon
the weak one bled on your pure form
you took on the violent crimson
guarded by razored leaves and long sword stem
today
you are a domestic icon
well known in every household

#songshare – Last Romance

Last Romance – Sally Yeh

去流逝似金年月
如何令往昔留住
金光裡難在雨中重遇
前塵事倍添凌亂
晴陽升上
斜陽歸去
無論愛是否有緣
茫然在匆匆中打轉
如夢逝去瞬息萬變
心一片仍在嘆息懷念
仍然望往昔重現
無言的你無言的我
流逝去是苦與甜
模糊是當天一張臉
變得難辦
只有一片愁凝在臉
斜陽歸去
無論愛是否有緣
茫然在匆匆中打轉
變得難辦
只有一片愁凝在臉

Journey

together
we grew from riding wooden horses to raising a family
we loved and nurtured our children to be their own unique person

here we are back to where we started
at our old age, being side by side
nature generously rewards us for our tireless giving
the sunset sky radiates pink and yellow on our grey hairlines

you look at me, I look at you
in sincerity, in serenity
our journey ends peacefully
at this moment in time
