The horizon ’10th leaf

The horizon ’10th leaf

The horizon

Bare feet poaching on sand
The sun warming my back
Sweat running through my body
Sea breeze blowing my hair
As far as the eye can see
Birds and bright blue sky
The sun the sea the shore
Here, where I meant

Where raucous noise bring a boy to ‘9th leaf

Where raucous noise bring a boy to ‘9th leaf

Where raucous noise bring a boy to.

Under an alien horse mango tree on windy day.

Tooph!

thump thump thump Sneaker stamp on the ground.

“Got it” said a boy

Tooph!

thump thump thump Sneaker stamp on the ground.

“I got it” said a boy again and next time and again.

“Every one of them” proudly said a boy.

He’s winning. He’s the best thought a boy.

You gotta go fast and strong learnt a boy.

“Brings this to them” come raucous noise

“That’s half of mine” said angrily a boy

Grab the basket full of mangoes, his mangoes. taken action a boy

thump thump thump Sneaker stamp on the ground.

“Here you are” said a boy

“Thank you” said a girl

Smiley face from her, his competitor.

That’s the moment a boy knows.

Where exactly his grandma words brings him.

Her plan for us ‘8th leaf

Her plan for us ‘8th leaf

Her plan for us

Darkness touched. I see no thing. I feel my skin being crunch. I hear my self drowning. I can not breathe but alive. I’m here. My mother brings me here. I won’t remember but I realize. Now I’m a grow man. A father of four. Mother giving us this land. Her land. Her prosperity. We dwell on it. I see. We all see. My mother is dying. My father is crying. Boots on the ground. We’re on a go. Things packed and weather cold. Father says no. You all go I’ll take care. Line through the land. Tear straight down. Never look back. Hopefully mother give us new ground. I’m not begging but I am looking. Day by day. Night by night. Wearying. A testament, written on our bodies. My sweet heart. My child. I’ll make Her yield to us. Carry on our way. Don’t you worry. She has a plan for you. Dwellers, that’s a blue sky.

I’m gone ‘7th leaf

I’m gone ‘7th leaf

I’m gone

I am who am I?
Flying likes a ghost.
Is that real? Is this real?
Oh see I’m flying around. Aha!
Back and go up and up
So high
A wall
Nop I’m through it.
Whao!
Legs?! My legs, I can’t feel my legs.
Am I dead? I’m a ghost. no!

*huffing and puffing
Still breathing
Yes dreaming

I owned my direction only with my hands.
Should I awake? Have legs but have no used to mine.
Have legs but all programmed.

Let me. Let me this dream again.
And leave me…alone

Sidewalk ‘6th leaf

Sidewalk ‘6th leaf

Sidewalk

Can’t do you dream fine.
Don’t let your dream die.
Look in distance while sensing surrounding.
One day that moment gonna be yours, Patient.

Our wall is for others ‘5th leaf

Our wall is for others ‘5th leaf

Our wall is for others

Build a wall.
You must have a wall.
Because that is the nature of universe.
You can’t mix thing up.
Because that will be nothing.
It’s not a thing.
It has to have a district.
Border separately.
That make thing different.
That make thing happen.
Not a single what? Single of everything that is not a thing.
A vacuum.
Meaningless.
Motionless.
Wall make it move.
Pushing pulling.
Attracting each other.
Passing force.
Connecting between 2 thing.

Differences make motion.
Motion become life.

It ‘4th leaf

It ‘4th leaf

It

Loving it.
Remembering it.
Capturing it.

And share others.

People die.
You die.
Every one.

What you’ve done? what they’ve done.
Not a single thing I remember.
Not a thing the world remember.
Earth is turning round and round.

Take your moment this moment.
Make this be yours.

Your life.
