Posts Tagged ‘bleak’


In midst of ugliness and hate,
A place that’s bleak and bare,
It may be hard to stand alone
And be the beauty there. 

When barren frame surrounds the bud,
And it’s the lonely breed,
Its graceful singularity’s
An even greater need.

The desert
And the distant moon –
Both are bleak.

— 

One silver
And the other red –
Still the same.

— 

All alone
They speak, each to each,
As brethren.

Choo Choo Chimney

The top view
While rounding a bend
On great train.

Real, Different

It all looks
Like funny money
When foreign.

Bleak

Death Valley
Not one bit of life.
Dead valley.
