Watched them one by one
Fallen now they are gone
Sent out by the richer men
Then back to No mans land
Black poppy stands waiting alone
Watched weeping as they left their homes
Husbands lovers brothers
Marching on to the beat of a war drum.
Rotting In the trenches
Or inhaling the scents of Agent orange
Some came back As heroes and veterans
The lucky ones
With Post traumatic stress syndrome,
Broken minds broken bones.
Black poppy remembers
Her heart pours out with grief
That would engulf those men like concrete
Black raven black swan,
Black poppy stands alone
Beside their marbled tombstones.
Loves reflections lost Poem
She stumbled upon a strong and handsome tree,
In the forest accidently,
She fell down upon her knees feeling weak and dizzy,
She became dazzled by the trees strange beauty,
It was both strong yet meek,
She walked ahead of herself and took a sneaky peep,
At its contorted branches and peculiar fruit and seeds.
As she walked closer to the tree,she realised
It was damaged and defensive Its snakes hissed
When later she tried to comfort it,
What a beautiful yet insecure tree it is !
The red emperor Butterfly Poem
The red emperor Butterfly sat on the tree
Looking at me wistfully she sighed
Do you ever think we will ever make it to Paradise ?
Then I replied
“Do you think its going to be easy getting into Paradise?”
“Well not for me ” and I sighed ,
Wiping a tear from my eye.
Blood red roses
Blood red roses climbing up her porches,
Clambering around her front door,
Scrambling through the open bay windows,
Shedding petals on carpeted floors,
Thorny branches peeping through her keyhole,
Blood red roses creeping up her front wall
Scrawling crawling stems reaching into her hall
She thought no one was watching,
But then you slammed the door .

Vanity and insanity
I awoke suddenly
My soul it spoke to me
It said vanity and insecurities
Shall destroy humanity
Cell by cell
Atom by atom
Molecule by molecule
With its greed wrenched insanity.
