No one rings the door bell

The house is clean, fragrant,
the refrigerator is full,
the snack jar overflows with nuts,
three single malt whiskeys in the kitchen shelf,
fresh farm fruits in the basket.

The day and night, I prepare food,
And feed me watching videos.
Other than online order delivery boys,
No one rings the doorbell.

As soon as you wake up, a message on the phone screen flashes, “How was the weekend?”. In a minute, you recollect, the vibrant scenes of the weekend, and once again experience the two days while still yawning with half eye closed.

Fruits of the park

The unnamed bird’s chirp
The squirrels run down from the tree
The puppies play in the grass
The public circle inside the park
The families relax beneath the shades of the tree
The kids’ cycle around the park
A blind man walks alone.

Flying in the night

I fly in the night Like the bird questing for the nest. I see the dispersed clouds in the blue sky Like the freedom to roam. I scrap the papers in the street Like cleaning the heart. I fell asleep and woke up Like a security guard in the gate. I feel I found a purpose of life Like the howling street dog in the night. [Read More]

Working to escape feelings

When the new year sun shines on the grass, it’s a next number in the common era, It is a continuation of yesterday. The biological aging process continues, Deaths increases, Deceased don’t wake up from the coffin, And sit in the weary stone bench And contemplate is time linear in the earth? On a sunny afternoon, In the middle of a traffic jam, Tens of bots, and automatons, send you the birthday wishes. [Read More]
