tap on an icon -
this novelty in turning
no dog-eared pages

in my solitude
the wide television screen
wins from me a smile

the choice of romance
where no stars wear the mask -
the new old movies

a mosquito sings
the song of his nature -
unrequited love

Day after day I shall bless you, I shall praise your name for ever and ever.
Psalm145:2 


What's there to smile about today? Tomorrow's moon. August’s Full Sturgeon Moon will illuminate the sky this weekend.
The full moon will appear Sunday and reach peak brightness on Monday.

I finished viewing the series 'Rookie Historian' on Netflix this week and thoroughly enjoyed this song.
ENJOY THE MUSIC


ENGLISH TRANSLATION HERE
The whole world was asleep and only you shined
On that day I first saw you
It was the start of going to you

Do you know? All the times I missed you?...

mobile phone call -
thunder and stormy winds
dull the volume

morning sky clearing -
golden clouds of my delight
that too will not last

as per usual
in the rainy season -
tossing window drapes

the phone icon green
shouting my conversation -
rain again today

Poets and Storytellers United
Weekly Scribblings #30: Writing as a Metaphor for Living
prompted by Magaly


DAY TO DAY
Each stanza of a poem applauds allusion,
For what is poetry, if not to be slowly savored
Like cherries plucked from an aged prickly tree
Long after the curtain comes down heavy, soft,
Silent, in velvet folds of meticulous grammar;
Call it fiction, for it becomes the stuff of dreamers,
No one wants the responsibility of reality;
The conflict is too great, the mood not right
For dying stars in dawn's pace of morning's rhythm
Edit the plot from dirge to sonnet where conflict
Of lovers and passion refuse the prose of politics
Word by word, step by step, day to day it's punctuation
