The circle of life
My Mother sat staring into the fire with a cup of tea,waiting up for me
"Mum,why don't you give me a key?
" You're not 21 yet" my Mother replied,as if that meant anything to me
"Do you know what time it is,whose car did you come home in,has the driver been drinking? She was on a roll.
" Its 3am, Ryan's car,and no he's not that daft".
" He's not getting a brown envelope from the DVLA"
"Hey my boy,don't you get lippy with me", she pointed her finger at me
When released from the questioning I made my way to bed.
Roll forward 30 years,oh dear,listen to me as my son rolls in at ten past three
" Did you use a condom, why are your eyes bloodshot, I hope yo...
The Love Nest
Simon parked his car at the kerbside and checked his reflection in the wing mirror. God he looked good. He walked along the road with a spring in his step. Inserting his key in the flat's door he stepped into the darkness,groping on the wall for the light switch,blinking as the light flicked on.
He went around the rooms turning on lamps to create a soft glow.
Pressing the remote for the sound system he smiled as sultry music played softly in the background.
He felt his lust rising and checked his watch,she'd be here in a few minutes.
As he walked past his bureau he noticed his ink pen resting on top of an envelope with his name on.
He tore it open and felt li...
Being Sunday, Dr James was idle at his chamber while a patient entered. He asked " What's your problem ?" Then patient said in a husky voice " I'm so sentimental and having a wife with discontented nature. There's a lovely daughter between us. She loves me like anything and wants to be a journalist but her Mom never allows her to be so. She did her graduation already. Now she became homesick and even doesn't want to marry. I'm so depressed over all.
Dr James said " I'm a psychiatrist of course but not ever free from these kind of problems" Then he had shown him 3 photos and said " The first one is my son who wants to be a writer and...
He wrote a reply to her letter and put into the envelope. It reads
Thanks for everything you did to me so far. I know what's the hell compelling you to abandon me lonely. I don't want to curse you for that.One thing I'm sure that you never sit comfortably on your dunlop chair. You need luxurious car, building and many more which I couldn't afford. But the sincere love I gave to you possibly stay in your mind life long I think. The unexpected shot you gave to me that always remain fresh in my mind. The reflection of your greediness often makes me feel nausea. Be happy wherever you are and hold the key of life properly.

- Cosmos, Unraveling, Voyage, Wondrous
Someday, when the last god is dead
When the wind blows sand through the doors of time
When the last temple crumbles to nothingness –
Come with me, and I will show you
The things that shall be.
The imagination is lifted away
On a wondrous voyage into the vastness
We shall be what we can be
Glory lasting to eternity
We shall touch the last red star
We shall be the children of the cosmos
The tide of reason shall be unleashed
And wash away the fear of magic and the unknown
Forever, and it will be gone
The world, unraveling, can laugh at itself,
Are you ready?

The secret of success
Have a VOYAGE around to see
Just stop a while
Look! How wondrous cosmos smile
Is unraveling what we haven't explored
Let's go for a voyage.
Crossing passers by
Is spreading music from the harmonium
Falling coins into buskers hat
But blind busker knows not
How coins there are!
Tik, Tik clicked nine
Touch your glass to mine
Yes, there be sorrows
But there be tomorrows.
As stable is nothing
That's music to ears
What you wish
And someone wishes
May poles apart
As your eyes twinkle
While others' blink.

QUIET AS DAYBREAK
Night is dark
Night is quiet
Quiet below the stars
Quiet beside the sea
Sea water so deep
Sea water like GLASS
Glass reflecting light
Glass with a TWINKLE
Twinkle and ripple
Twinkle Twinkle little stars
Stars studded GALAXY
Stars shooting over the Earth
Earth in ditch and dike
Earth and rolling hills
Hills and mountains
Hills and moorlands
Moorlands rich with ancient peat
Moorlands crested by swaying trees
Trees old as the hills
Trees bend like old men in the wind
Wind so harsh
Wind and rain
Rain which lashes these Yorkshire moors
Rain which fills gullies and streams
Streams red as r...
