POEMS
1 [too many libraries are selling away all their books that aren't bestsellers or videos]
These libraries
are empty spaces
how can so many books
say so little
better to enter
a well lit room
empty of clutter.
2. [This and the next are poems that will be a part of a large sci-fi work called 'Writings In Science' that I'm working on - the premise is this - it  is a selection of science writings salvaged from earth in it's last days millions of years from now]]
Towards the center
of our galaxy
things get crowded
we feel hemmed in
so by decree
it was declared
1 to a planet
5 to a star
land and survey
build your home
set up a garden
invite your friends.
3. [Writings in Science entry]
They treat me
like some kind of pet
leaving me till
some leisure time
then yanking my leash
to get a reaction
are they so unaware
to not see my hatred
waiting for the moment
to in turn yank back?
4. [Children's poem for my kid's poem collection "Moon Tea"
Put some chocolate
   in your pocket
see how long
   it takes to melt
5.  [love poem in the Chinese manner]
Across the way ...
one light still on ...
is it the girl I long for
pining alone for me?
6. [A poem for my bestiary collection]
butterfly
do you like to doze
on the nose
of the crocodile?
7. [Nonsense verse]
I gathered all the animals
into a joint conference
little knowing the problems that
invitation caused
the uninvited plants held
a rival convention and
the fungi felt betrayed and signed
a symbiotic treaty
together with the one cells
who were a little miffed too.
and outside all the meetings
the world was unquiet
the oceans murmured,
the land shifted
and the planet shaken,
kept  spinning
SAYINGS
A narrow mind in a fat head!
Title for a painting:  This is not a Magritte
Art S Revolutionary says, "When you rate films by sales instead of quality, you are really rating their promotional campaign.
Even if all the world was an ocean, we'd invent ports.
