What Lies Ahead
Author: Pondering Red


Heart thumps-
silent tremor in my hands.
i become aware of my discomfort.

Forecast high humidity-
but fresh rain sprinkles.
lies - lies
and he says this is his truth.

fact - opinion
what is the diference ?
basic philosophy-
sky is white.
can't argue with mathematics.
can't argue with your truth
or so you say.

Leaves of plants turn.
hard rains a gonna fall,
Dylan sings out.
hard days ahead because
I can't argue with your truth.

Pleasant day to go
through the alleyways-
take some photographs.
picture don't lie.
pictures can be manipulated.
beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
you have lying eyes.-

Scent of autumn in the air-
people frantically
trying to enjoy the remaining
summer days.
full moon driving
me crazy-
shaking me up-
earths shaking has made the days
grow shorter.
your truth is a lie.

Nervous energy in the air-
you say it's a nice day.
is it ?

Seasons Of Your Poem, Give Us Both A Choice

Snow falls upon our dreams every year, Spring comes back and revives our dreams, then winter falls, freezes our love, and all our dreams, which season are we to believe.

This is the wheather report, straight to your heart, latest radar indicates, the snow will blow from the north and freezing rain may cause second thoughts about where you plan to go, wear lots of cover over your heart, who knows, when the snow, will cease to fall and your will wake up and feel the paradise, stored in memories. If, you can't accept the change in the weather, then go to Idaho and place your bets. Will my heart freeze, or accept, the warm heart I have always known.

I love the words, of Pondering Red.

No one can say it better than Martin, eh? :P Loved this poem, Red. There is some deep underlying meaning here - you can just grasp it - it's like when humidity sticks to your arms and's so heavy, like your poem, hehe. Wonderful job! :)
