Brazil revisited 8

“I see that it is by no means useless to travel the wide world,
especially if you keep your eyes, mind and heart open for the new experiences” Gun Roswell

On the River Negro

On a slow boat
Down the moat…

(The needle on the record hops with a screeching sound)
“Sorry, wrong track!”

On a slow little ship
Down the River Negro we slide
It’s just a short trip
Into the beyond and open wild

Fishes and dolphins
Jump up from the waters
The mermaids a calling
So lock up your fathers
No place for golfing
Only a trek for the trotters

On a slow little ship
Down the River Negro we slide
It’s just a short trip
Into the beyond and open wild

Close to Night Fall

When the night falls
And bedtime calls…

Wait, we’re on holiday
No one sleeps on a holiday
Just drinks some coffee
With a mint of or a toffee
Awake you will remain
Even if your brain
Will go a little cuckoo

Roof Top

Sitting on the roof top

Why?

Because it was time for a stop
Switch gears, and make a swap

Now

Laying around like a blob
Thinking(?)
I need to pick up that mop

Never mind
It’s just a job
I can easily do
Tomorrow

Biker Dude

Down the busiest of streets
The roaring engine, setting the beat
No time, to even tweet
Not even, for any of them sweets

Because:
“Got some old pals to meet
And,
To dry, my bloody soaking feet!”

Slow Boat down the River

On a slow boat
On this wide moat
Did bring a tote
Filled with some oat
To feed the goat…

“Wait a minute, wait a minute?
River, oat, goat?
What’s the catch in this?”

“Well, it’s for me to know
And you to find out!”

Brazil revisited 1

1-b

In the deepest of rain forests, in Brazil
You can most definitely feel, the eternal thrill
Especially when sailing down, the river Negro
Quite, as the great unknown of an incognito
And then, a glimpse of the dolphins
With surprise of a raise, of the endorphins

Hiding leaf

A half rotten leaf
Hang on to the tree
So strongly willed
That even the chills
Of autumn weather
Could not breach the tether
As strong as the mighty oak
It was grabbing on
Some said, it was a joke
Nothing could survive
The circle of life

“Well,” said the lone leaf
“In your face Mother Nature,
Serves you to let your hatred
Leashed onto a poor piece of dying matter
But now I am finally striking back at ya
So, deal with it,
For I ain’t taking shit
I’ll be here
Way until next year!”

Berried treasure

On the strongest of tree branches
A bunch of free range berries launching
Their planned dive, several feet high
Plunging into the ground below
With sounds loudly thundering
Making the earth tremor and wondering
Wether an earthquake of a great magnitude
Hit the surroundings without prelude
