There is peace here

Standard

There are moments when one is at peace
driving along a busy road
where sound is not noise
where society is a welcome sight
a reminder that life is simple.

Saw a man sitting on a bench
on a train platform teeming with life
He had headphones on and a book to read
cocooned within an invisible sphere
Perhaps it’s imagined or a wish
but you look protected from the world
even as you were within it
On that platform there was stillness
that’s missing from this world
in the aftermath of all the stories
of violent deaths and despair.

Simplicity does not seem possible
quiet persists in eluding us
but one could only see from one’s eyes
what the world is made of
but what do I know?

#Haiku Sensuous Loving…Memories

Standard

RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge #45 – Pitch, Time

Couple joy

Pitching forth stumbling
Timeless memories assail
  Sensuous loving.

Loving can heal
Loving can mend your soul
And is the only thing
That I know (know)
I swear it will get easier
Remember that with every piece of ya
And it’s the only thing we take with us when we die

We keep this love in a photograph
We make these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing
Our hearts were never broken
And times forever frozen still
So you can keep me
Inside the pocket
Of your ripped jeans
Holdin’ me closer
Till our eyes meet
You won’t ever be alone

And if you hurt me
Well that’s ok baby only words bleed
Inside these pages you just hold me
And I won’t ever let you go

Wait for me to come home

Colleen over at Silver Threading hosts the weekly Writer’s Quote WednesdayCheck it out.

This is my quote for this week.

Fiction

John Green is an American YA author, fairly new having published his first book in 2006.  His book ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ (2012) was adapted into a movie released in 2014.

Here are 2 songs from the movie soundtrack which I enjoy – for very different reasons:

Ed Sheeran – All the Stars

Charli XCX – Boom Clap

Enjoy!
