I write what I feel…

Behind the Scene



Tranquil lawns of green,

sprinkled with the last autumn leaves,

flower beds alive with colours, roses pink, irises blue

and daisies big and small –

photo’s can’t do justice to them all –

how misleading, how deceiving,

this scene, so serene,

a microcosm of our world

where good stands against evil –

God against the devil –

corrupted souls, hypocrisy grows

and Satan smiles all the while.

This restful place should offer peace

with God, oneself and with nature,

but it harbours vile and malicious spirits

intent on sowing spite and malevolence,

insidiously and ingeniously

undetected in the main,

but ignored by some –

tantamount to sanction…

  4. Ah . . . the mutterer and the sputterer.

    Maybe you could compare notes with some of your neighbors to see if anyone has good ideas on how to deal with each.


  5. Sounds a bit like the current situation in my block of flats. Hopefully some matters will be sorted out this evening.


  6. Hope tonight goes well… love the words… a bit of anger do I detect.??


  7. A good rant in poetic form, adee.


  8. One certainly feels that the devil should receive well-directed boots in the buttocks far more often …


  9. The problem is, Denise, it looks so bad because badness makes news, but goodness excites little comment. So we get a biassed view which makes for depression.


    • I agree with you, John, regarding the rest of the world reflected(?) in the news. Unfortunately this is something personal which I am at a loss to resolve. I am and have been up to now, turning the other cheek, so to speak.


  10. If only we could have the world as good as it is pretty


  11. What a large question mark the wakening mind and heart encounters.
