Simplicity….


Soft winter sun rays

blares beauty,

through the spreading of her warmth,

along one’s fine skin of ruby


Fresh soil,

laid down in bulk,

to alkaline the biting coarseness

rushed through by the wind puck


The leathery faces

of the nearby herdsmen,

breathe in the grit.

Their bodies spelling dry crispness of Zen


Source


Shoes dance a metal jingle

as the men of the bubbling click,

step up the short distance,

to the huge fireplace of brick


Exploding busyness of the flame,

popping and scorching the logs.

Grandfather clock chiming brightly

near the stained glassed door


Homebrew fizzes a doughy foaminess.

The leathery faced herdsmen

guzzle the amber liquid,

with fever like that from cayenne


Source


It’s been a rough, long day,

the silent beauty of the land,

leaves each man feeling

both distant and united jammed.


Early morning start,

bangs and puffs of ash,

door knock its time,

to welcome the land of lullabies pass

Simplicity
