Morning Hike in our Lovely Neighborhood

Nature’s bounty in full bloom captured during a morning hike.

It was another beautiful
Morning in paradise
Out for a walk with my lady love
My best buddy tagging along
Just for a ride

Morning sun with its
Golden light
Shining bright
Peacock sunrise
Peeking through the trees
What a lovely sight

Mischievous El Nino
Playing hide and seek
Rains had done its wonders
Nature blooming with early spring
In this glorious day
All thoughts of
The current seekers
Of the president’s chair
Out of the way

Stop on my track often
Here and there
My buddy ran
His sensory organs
Needed to be satisfied
Internal database replenished
With sweet smell of
Fresh morning grass
Here and there he
Had to leave his mark
Waiting patiently
For his human
To pick up his muck

Oh, What a lovely day
In our corner of the world
Our lovely neighborhood
Blessed by nature’s bounty
To have a morning hike

Early Spring in NorCal

Spring has arrived early in NorCal, at least around the area I hike on Sunday morning with my friends. Day started nice and cool with a mild breeze and warmed up by the time we completed our seven miles hike on the mountains. Surprise of the day was abundance of flowers so early on along the trails. Alas, no red roses that I could take back to my lady love.Earlyspringcollage

Life not Science but Arts

Life is not scientific or mathematical operations.

Magnetism, opposites attract
Bringing opposite poles together
In life, alas
Opposites attract to collide, disaster
Disagreements, small and neglected
Allowed to fester
Push back violently, render
Loving hearts into cold stones
Double negative multiplications
Does not produce amicable vibrations
Addition of negatives
Produces no resolution
Life, not science
But arts
Artful handling, tender loving care
Hearts beating for each other
To keep opposites attracted
Forever

 

No More School For Me

Beautiful poem. May not agree with everything. Took the liberty of reblogging this on my site.

Frank Solanki

They make me wake up early
When I should be sleeping instead
The sun hasn’t raised his head
But I’m already out of my bed
I go through the motions
Like a ritual, everyday
I dream about the weekends
But they’re always far away
I wish I could find a formula to make myself grow
I won’t be going to school
I won’t be going to school tomorrow

All sorts of people fill that place
My friends, they are friendly
The bullies, they all bully
And they all do their jobs so perfectly
Mr. Vain, he is kind
Miss Confused, she is nice
But when I ask them a question
They fill me up with lies
And all sorts of nonsensical stuff, at me, they throw
I won’t be going to school
I won’t be going to school tomorrow

There are so many other things
I’d rather be…

Wonder

Second poem starting with”W” in the series of fifty two weeks journey with “W”.

Wonder why we are here
What is the purpose of life
Where did we come from
Where will we go
Wonder if we are alone in this universe
Why are we destroying this world of ours
Wonder what will be our legacy to progenies
Worry only death, destruction, famine or wars
While we debate and throw science to the winds
World slowly marches towards cataclysm
Wonderful world of ours one day
Will certainly be in ruins
Woefully unprepared to face reality
We march on to our final annihilation
Wondering all the time
Will we be ready for rehabilitation
World of ours is a
Worthy cause to fight for
Wonder if we all get together
Winning the war against ignorance
Words of enlightenment spread far and wide
Will we be able to reverse the tide
