Poets. Poets. Are crazy. The rain is falling. I have work to do and all that plays in my mind is the tap of the rain on my roof – tap, tap, tap. And the cold that sneaks into my body from my legs. Why wear a cardigan and have shorts on with slippers? I … Continue reading A Poet in the Cold – Su’eddie Vershima Agema

I could have lost you whose crossed ten digits clasped in devotion for me whose smiling cheer formed the water for my tree in green and in drought I could have lost you in that blink when the sun scorched and I let my prayer fizzle in the thought your plantation was ever-green … Continue reading I could have lost you (a poem) by Su’eddie Vershima Agema
There’s been much to the heart of late. Makes you really wonder about a lot of things. Society’s position on a lot of issues and the like. You see transformations, manipulations and you just keep wondering. Did you hear that by 2025 or so, robots would be brought to replace men in sex? Have you … Continue reading MEANING THIS MORNING
(As another comet flies to join the constellations) Life. Life happens in a breath. Inhale. Live. Then… Exhale to that space where the soul flows to the tune of our thoughts… Inhale. We who live as we mourn those whose breaths will no longer kiss our faces. Whose thoughts will become cherished jewels in our … Continue reading life’s measure
