Lambaste Injustice

 

I'm With Her - NaamaYehuda

There are times when to pummel

A wrongness with words

Is a must.

If another is silenced

And their voice thrown

To dust,

Then lambasting the cruelty

Is the way to be

Just.

A Time’s Tome

 

 

There are tales in the making

Some so long, one might fear

Hope will drown in the swamps

Where the truth disappears.

But other tomes are unfolding

That the soul aches to hear:

Of corruption that ended

As justice grew near.

A Wand’s Way

As above so below

The moss weeps

Willows flow

Flowered path

Bridges pond:

The fair folk had

Waived their wand.

Like the goddess of the rainbow

You stand tall

In every hue,

And lend credence to the story

That it’s gorgeous

To be you.

Ostensible Justice

When a rule was explained

As one meant to give voice

But abandoned

As soon

As one snatched up their choice,

Don’t be fooled to believe

It was done in good faith

For ostensible standards

Prove hypocrisy’s face.

Stormy Seagull

‘Twas the day of a storm

Tide was soon to claim sand

And you sought urgent refuge

On somewhat dry-land.

Not a foot from my chair

You stood near, you stayed calm.

Maybe you knew ’twas a place

Where you’d come to no harm.

The new piece unfolded in his head during the long flight. The chords danced to the beat of the flickering red light on the airplane’s wing and the turbulence lent base to the melody. It was perfect. He’d have written the notes right there and then had it not been for his propensity to motion sickness. Staring out the window was the only remedy. Sometimes the best inspiration.

“Let it go, let it go!” his daughter’s singing in her room welcomed him home.

And the nascent harmonies obeyed, dispersed, let gone.

She twirls this way and back again

Jingling beads fit for a reign

Tuto flying

Boas, too.

Joyfully bedizened

To wazoo.

Diagonal Climb

The light climbs

Up the walls,

Its ancient pace

Never stalls,

Letting sun

Follow earth,

On a path

To rebirth.

Do or Dye

Do not shy

From the dye,

Do not cringe

From the fringe.

What gives flowers the hue

Can teach color to you.

If two tones were the all

We’d be so bored we’d bawl.

So go on and dye more

Shades of lovely galore.
