Thus began the story
of destiny written
in the emblems of conviviality
Warmness and unforgotten colours of blue

Right on an innocent sidewalk
was a meet of immense meaning 
Conjured as outputs of oneness
Settled in selflessness
and creative possibilities

This beautiful story was crafted
on the heels of ceaseless word flow
Built by the unceasing rhythms
and reverberations
and fruitfulness in time and space



Though my mornings are filled 
With my head quaking like thunderstorm

I'll empty not my sorrows in a bottle of rum
Thinking less and worrying not
Over somethings and nothings
A hot cup of tea will do just fine!
