Kinship

I am Kinship

I need not be at the mercy of

What flows in the human veins

I can be found and forged regardless

All I need is a spark of recognition

Common grounds abound if sought

And a kinship can be formed therewith

A jest of fate can lend a helping hand

A missed opportunity can be a blessing

I am not a slave to age, race or creed

Nor lands, mountains, falls and rivers

I can happen in a split second and the ties

Can last and survive the march of time

I am more precious than a diamond and

Can be both a rarity or a common sight!
I am Kinship that needs no blood relations

I can be forged n happen in the blink of an eye!

Not till the fire is dying in the grate, Look we for any kinship with the stars. Oh, wisdom never comes when it is gold, And the great price we paid for it full worth: We have it only when we are half earth. Little avails that coinage to the old!
Meredith, George

Periwinkle

Periwinkle skies stretching endlessly

Boast splashes of white hither n thither

The sun shines bright and golden

Making the garden flowers take notice

Side walkers sporting colorful threads

Enjoy this lovely day, longtime in coming

My heart jumps up and I want to sing

Gather daisies that are there for the having

Periwinkle waters shimmer in waves of gold

Letting boats ride over it fast n furious

Periwinkle skies stretching endlessly

Herald summer longtime in coming

Now cold winter goes into hibernation

Finally, neither mourned nor missed!

Apathy

 Apathy like a returning bug

Tends to cloud my bonhomie

Banishing it is kind of hard

Its insidiousness is overwhelming

Euphoria slinks out with its tail

Drooping between its legs

Clawing out of this abyss

I take hold of myself

Without resorting to props

Friendly ears n shoulders,

Be gone, I have to outgrow you

And swat this menace myself
There can be no transforming of darkness into light and of apathy into movement without emotion.
Carl Jung
Swiss psychologist (1875 – 1961)
