Day 1 – Appearances

***
A four-year-old is more demanding
than a baby,
although it appears otherwise.

You appeared
along with a host of annexes
Among those were beauty,
caress, and care.
My anger subsided,
it appears,
along with your appearance.

***
Strange that we should judge
by appearance mainly,
instead of otherwise.

Not too strange,
considering human nature.
its main folly – laziness.

The river of innocence, the industry of fire, Magpie tale #116

[subscribe2]Magpie Tales #116

Are those tops
I see
the ones of buildings
plants
of industry
that glow in operative fire;
or treetops
burning sunset red? 

Is that river
I see
one of tears
or forgiveness,
maybe one of
innocence
flowing towards
the industry-subjected burners? 

All innocence slides off
to banks unseen
to heartbeats unexpected. 

Fear not
Appearance will hold
Much muddy water in.
