Poetry | Ueko Oshima

Night falls, a man walks

Darkness swirls in blackened night
That might have left me without light
Yet with me are fireflies
That gift sight for my eyes

Like a waltz they sway my lovely vision enhancers
Not to mention they are amazing dancers

Yet, All of these city lights
seem pointless to me.

They brighten
the roads we walk on,
drive on,
die on,
but not
our lives.

Home is where
the heart is,
my heart isn't here.

The heart doesn't choose home

Mother Nature’s moods.
A typhoon or hurricane,
she cleans house quickly!

Just like a woman.
I don't know what she'll do next.
Wind, rain, hail, or snow?
