Photo Challenge #201 – The story has to finish somehow

-Kyle Thompson

The story has to finish somehow
Time to break, time to move on
No regrets, take a bow

Swam in the creek with the carabao
Taming of the dawn
The story has to finish somehow

The loss of the here and now
The curtain has been drawn
No regrets, take a bow

Been through a lot, to Macau
I thought you were my khan
The story has to finish somehow

Rode in your tamarao
Let bygone be bygone
No regrets, take a bow

Make way for the snowplow
Conclusion was foregone
The story has to finish somehow
No regrets, take a bow*

Photo Challenge #198 – The final design

– Gyaban

Swimming with hardship
Plethora of pain
The final design
With difficulties
With one song it soothes
Let it chime its breeze
None to keep it void
Even time squeeze

Get into the groove
Padded with sponge
Follow the guideline
Situation improve
For what it is worth
Until the earth moves
And heaven agrees
I accede with ease*

The Troublesome Princess


Drop in here if you want some Morii
Meet the troublesome princess
With tussled ribbon she’ll sing a song
That perforate your eardrums such fuss

Her florid and terrifying prose
Will keep us up until dawn
She’ll sing a song with tussled ribbon
Prepare for solstice, well now begone!

Wine and poinsettia on the table
She likes to drink prosecco
With tussled ribbon she’ll sing a song
Her black bird by her side foreshadow*
