The Quiet Moon 

The light moon

gazed on.

Creating happiness

with reveries.


all nature reposed.

The quiet moon

alone felt the silence.

Dreaming Of The Peacock Tree

An original abstract drawing I did on A5 paper using Sharpie pens.

The title comes from a couple of suggestions from Facebook friends.

The Darkest Carnival 

I speculated about

A dark and dusky night

with the devil rooking

all those carnival tricks,

and the Ferris wheel

revolving the sad music

of doubt.

A weird crazy sight.

For a long long time

it was night.

Only I was giving up.

I ran like mad.

A hundred miles

saved my life.
