The Gift Of A Feather

A Hawk gave hope a chance
Peacock plumes decorated the gloom
Neelkanth perched on a tree for months
Dispelled darkness
Cardinals decorated a Christmas tree
A modern Phoenix perched on a chimney chute
Signals transformation

In The Fullness Of Time

The fulcrum of our decisions
Tip time over to one side or the other
Be wise
Don't upset the balance
Against your best interests

Honor money peace health
All are being stolen
While false protestations of love
Are being used as cover
Trust only results not promises

In time
You will learn to play this game
Of  weighted dice
And Kurukshetra will be littered
With the bodies of your kinsman

While vultures feast on their carrion
