The Imaginings of an Adventurous Mind



On Morality and Ire.

In a just person’s heart there is a fire;

it burns for a good that we all desire.

Their strength must hold fast when stuck in the mire,

through both thick times and thin, it must not tire.

Let humane wonder uphold in times most dire:

the peaceful, soul-stirring sound of a choir,

the skilled and intricate pluck of a lyre,

a loved one’s voice on a telephone wire,

the fire in a just person’s heart:

that is what I admire.

The Perpetual Clock

Time is elusive, ‘t lasts no time at all;

a leaf on the wind, winter, spring, summer, and fall.

The hands of the clock, they spin oh so fast,

perpetual motion eternity will last.

Seconds, minutes, they’re the blink of an eye,

on the face of time- bid that second goodbye.

Make use of your time, don’t pour ‘t down the drain;

for when that moment has gone it won’t come again.

An Ice-cream Feast

When you find the weathers increased,

go forth ad grab yourself a feast.

When it’s so hot you want to scream,

get yourself Cornetto ice-cream.

Magnum may drip upon your shirt,

you could go for frozen yogurt.

The Best Laid Plans; an Unpredictable Haiku

A person can plot,

what they want fate to do, but;

Fate rarely listens.
