November Morning

Some bare trees I’ve seen

Most however, are still rather green

I start my day with lemon & honey

To have a whole day of energy

It”s stronger than coffee 💛☕

Gas & Electrity

I never thought I’d hear young people say:

‘Can you please switch off the lamp’

That cost would block their way

Because of others’ war camp

Many years, the young ignored elders’ say

@douryeh

Travel

Unheard of before:

Travel is becoming a lot more

Strangely difficult ~ in this country

No trains, little airport security

Will we see more?

@douryeh

Summer

Do I enjoy it enough,

I sometimes ask

So quickly, the festive mask

Is replaced by the one that’s rough

Just go out, with your water flask

@douryeh

Covid19

Alas, it reached us again

Me & others, still enjoy immunity

Others had to go in quarantaine

They won’t suffer coming months, hopefully

Me, I’d like to smell again

@douryeh

Today

Army chopper above us,

As a notorious gang is brought to court

Beyoncé on the radio; minus & plus

Are concepts I wrestle with, as I sort

My papers ~ to disallow others to discuss

@douryeh

Happiness

Happiness with the small things,

Is fairly easy — it’s gratitude, joy

Happiness with major things,

Takes more effort to find & enjoy

It’s not fully in our hands to deploy

@douryeh

Stars Above

I look at the stars today

So many we have, in & out of the Milky way

If each represent a person,

I ask: Are you there, away from the Sun?

~ I wish everybody a happy Mother’s Day
