Fear knocks on my door
which starts to constrict my heart,
but my thoughts parade
to a different drum beat
and I change reality.

Thoughts of a doggie,
walking next to its owner,
kept on a short leash:
My time is shorter than yours,
but I’m the boss in your life.

the clouds hang heavy and low

A cactus covered
with thorns holds in its center
a fruit, tough and sharp
from the outside but beneath
the skin is juicy and sweet.

Versatile suckers,
the unwelcome parasites,
who enter your life
at any opportune time
are challenging your kindness.
