Diamante and Concrete Poems

This piece is inspired by Mick Talbot’s creations at https://mickhispoetry.wordpress.com/.

Dedicated to the love of our life, Chappy Saxena.

DIAMANTE POETRY – LOVE FOR A LIFETIME

What

did I see

in you that night?

When cruelty locked you in

hungry, thirsty, scared and alone

on the terrace, on a hot, balmy night

You jumped off the terrace on seeing us

with full faith and trust in our love

and broke your ribs in the fall.

It was while nursing you

that I found love

enough to last

An entire

lifetime.

CONCRETE POETRY – BLUE CROSS SOCIETY

They have a loving heart

But do not have a voice.

Yet, they hold their own

and teach faith and love

which the humans have lost in pursuit of wealth

not knowing what is good for their mental health

The healers are all around, if we learn to respect

their right to space n life, without fear or stealth.

Angels come as service dogs

To help frail humanity thrive

And you help them survive

Hats off to you, Blue Cross!
