Her smile is in her entrancing blue eyes, 

Sky of ink blue enhanced, purple, red, and pink. 

Wild child bites her ruby red lips, desires —
You, captivates you, takes you to the brink. 

Rainbow nails, smooth hair of brilliant hues too. 

Locks deep teal, sky blue, purple fuchsia inked

She’s a work of art, life sparkling through, 

Claret brows rise, she’ll admonish you; 

Leave her to pout; childlike tears will ensue. 

Life of party; her disdain ends soon,  — 

She’ll glide back, scarlet heels, winged shoes, 

Her petal skin glows in silver moon, 

No shred of innocence, pride taken, she woos. 

Lush sweet lips overcome your instinct to fight, 

She’ll take all you have and more, but to prove

She can have all she wants; life in black and white — 

Misses the intensity of multicoloured hues. 

Her life shines with saturation so bright, 

Chromacity, most vivid colours known, 

They overwhelm her form, rainbow explodes. 

Her smile is in her entrancing blue eyes, 

Wild child bites her ruby red lips, desire.

Hush across green dusted woods, 

Deer came into the area, 

Knowing not that their lives were spared. 

Coming soundlessly they stood, 

Hunters close, could taste venison. 

Deer eyes clear, no shown surrender. 

Know not I why they came and looked, 

Ate the grass carelessly and stared, 

At camaflouged men threats bared. 

Humans so close, guns nearby shook, 

Tried to shoot, bambi eyes unhinged,

Couldnt think, at innocence cringed. 

Majesty of moment brooked, 

Deers watched the men, discussing them, 

Drew closer —curious are men. 

Deers unharmed, it was understood. 

No hunter there a weapon raised,

Then as light, deer faded away.

Poem: Nonets Cascading – “Only When He Hears Her”



Baby in Crib
http://www.hometips.com

A baby laughs, he’s discovered his toes,

Such yummy parts to put in his,

Mouth; and happily gnaw until,

The light catches his eye,

A rainbow forming,

Blue-eyes entranced,

Mouth little,

“O.”


But,

Then he,

Hears her coming.

Everything was fine,

But he needs her so —

Badly, now he doesn’t know,

Why? But he thinks he might cry,

Things aren’t fine until Mom picks him up,

Pure; yet he cries, just when he hears her.

Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner:  In Another’s Shoes

Atticus, the character, by Harper Lee, 

A man of insightful wisdom for Scout, 

And for Jem; on the law, life, and what is right.

Shoes they tred many miles,

We’re never sure how far they go, 

So we should never judge a man (or woman), 

Until we’ve walked in his or her shoes, 

Until we know what it’s like being in their skin.

So says Atticus to his little daughter Scout.

So difficult to comprehend, 

Another man or women’s mind, 

To realize how their body feels,

The struggles they hide deep in there souls.

So no one perceives their weaknesses.

So no one perceives their deficiencies.

Shoes reveal all;

Our favourite pairs are worn in and irreplaceable.

Even the same kind, is never the same as the original pair.

As for Harper Lee, the great writer, 

She was only trying to say not to judge.

Let people be people black, white, or any skin colour.

She was was trying to end discrimination.

And tell us through the child of Scout, 

Through innocence and wonder, 

The simpleness of not hurting each other, 

Not molesting and raping women.

Or blaming innocent men for a crime, (based on their ethnicity).

Such wisdom Harper Lee shares, 

So I hope you understand, 

Walk in another man or women’s shoes, 

Before you judge and abuse.
