Hmm, today i would enjoy us to read through this piece of tercets. Written not quite long after some stuffy day…. Just flash back to some shakespear’s type, then i get started! And i got this little done….

When i saw life mock mankind
I did pretend like though blind
Yet, askance i look its cameleon kind

Failure makes human bosom
But it is beyond their wisdom
Optimism and courage to it; the colostrums

Covetousness sobs for who dare cares
By and by, it pity fills the air
Defiance is dead, enticed stood man’s eat

Placidity make sober-ness come
Life simulate luxury, alas dynamic in form
Friend of foe, contentment rings out your drum

Love and trust maintain their scarcity
Truth may seem, but lost is sincerity
All is grace in all simplicity

Love did swear faithful to me
Shamed i acquiescence; doubt my mind be
True love is demure, it ways makes its glory be

Who say deceit bore trust? i heard
Scepticism thus lock my mind hard
Mystical life thus jest my naïve mind

Lucky, i say to call this earth utopia
Cool, calm and pleasant.. So i say
But Heavenly song i sing with earthly tongue!

Hope you enjoyed the journey! Its some insight of this life as i picture lately.. Please do drop your view! Thanks…..

    some really prickly lies there…the scarcity of love and trust makes me a bit sad….
    singing the heavenly song with earthly tongue is cool as well…grounded yet still…

  2. Mary says:

    Yes, some excellent lines. My favorite is the ending: “Heavenly song i sing with earthly tongue.’

    Such interesting and diverse words and views–I especially liked the use of colostrum! If only we could inoculate ourselves from a certain un-self-awareness– really adventurous verse–and creative. k.

  4. Gabriella says:

    Some of your lines may be sad, particularly about the scarcity of love but they are also striking and evocative.

  5. Oh there is some dark pessimism within your rhymes but the end is a true volta into optimism. great write.

    You have a good beat in your words ~ I specially like these lines though :

    All is grace in all simplicity
    Love did swear faithful to me

    Have a good week ~
