The wonders of life are delivered as a surprise package wrapped in misery.

The misery of life is received wrapped in golden paper



Courage to live

Trapped in responsibility

Tiger zoo cage


Quiet life’s mild comfort

Little joys for little days

Mainstream tin can


Cold anger visits

Icy grooves on my face

Winter gale fury


Dark rocks of pride

Storm wave milled become sand

Footprints of gentle love


Glimmering sand grains

Are blown away and settle far

Stars twinkle on us


In the endless ocean of our mind countless waves cross each other but never mix
