Sometimes (a Haiku)

Updated on August 7, 2015
Sometimes things seem to appear in shades of grey...
Sometimes things seem to appear in shades of grey...
does so permeate the day...
does so permeate the day...
Everything seems to feel so down...problems pile...
Everything seems to feel so down...problems pile...
Then I see a baby smile...a mother's care, all the while...
Then I see a baby smile...a mother's care, all the while...
All seems to be alright...an evening, mild.
All seems to be alright...an evening, mild.



Sometimes I have doubts,

Everything seems odd...all pouts...

Just who is in charge?


Television ads...

The most recent fads...the cads...

The felons at large.


Politicians shout...

The circus clowns, all about...

Retreat to garage.


World's villains attack...

Everything to seem so black...

Not a fond corsage.


Hearing babies laugh,

Mothers smile, on their behalf...

Gives me new courage.


Dark clouds change to bright,

Bluest skies from dawn to night...

Now's time...a new age!

      Yes, whonu. I control my world and what enters it. Isn't it great to be able to do that?

      Thanks Michael. I suppose it is up to each of us as to what we want to focus upon in our lives. It is all too easy...and I am guilty at times...to focus on negativity, especially about politics and other seemingly warped social issues. I do try my best to see the best in all that I can, my friend. Thank you. whonu

      Babies' laughter is a guaranteed pick-me-up. There's nothing more musical.

      It takes just one little thing to dispel all the doubt and make us realise how wonderful the world is after all!

      Lovely haikus.
