Cherry – Quite Contrary

Enchanting Cherry;
Pink blossoms do entice.
Blooming  beauty;
Through the night.
Offering such sacrifice.

Gather around,
Stunning sight!
Pixies dancing;
Through the night.

Beneath the blossom,
Unwinding often.
Features soften;
All muddles forgotten.

Enchanting Cherry;
Pink blossoms do entice.
Blooming  beauty;
Through the night.
Offering such sacrifice.

Hour Of Midnight

It was the time,
Around midnight.
Thy senses void;
Lacking insight.

In the darkness,
It slowly crept.
Slithering across;
Step by step.

Until at dawn,
To utter disbelief!
Corpses lying heaped!
Swiftly, horror seeped.

Before thee knew,
The world hath ceased!
Killings amid;
Thee horrid beasts!

A glimpse of the end,
Was all hath caught.
Women and children,
Fully distraught!

None of these things,
Felt righteous to thee.
The truth, alas!
It could not be!

What could be done?
Grievously thy thought!
Peace and sanctity,
Itching to be sought!

Waterfall

Lo! The sight,
So utterly majestic!
A cascade of water,
Allegedly artistic!

Hear thy breath,
Whisper in the air.
Water gushing slowly,
Propelling thee to stare.

Alas! The water,
Shimmering coral blue.
Painting up thy cheeks,
A soft crimson hue.

Basking there despite,
The hour of twilight.
Its time to bid adieu.
Walk the woods through.

Lo! The sight,
So utterly majestic!
A cascade of water,
Allegedly artistic!
