One Hundred Years Across The Century

I set walking along the sea
what warm and shining memory
seconds apart longer
my foot touched the water
as the horizon remained muted
sun rays danced on each moment
whispering stories for days to come
unknowingly as I walk
these stories blossomed true
from a large distance
I saw the glow of the future
eagerly I walked faster
only to tire and become slower
then I realize I’m dragging
the past long due its time
some histories are not kind
darkness maul everyone they find
strange again I realize
the nearer I feel the future
a mysterious shadow glooming over
like a bug overshadow by a flower
only in beauty but not in power
yes I hold the key for the future
But, should I change it or live it?

*something of being old, or rather growing old and the hopes for the future. Of the feeling that I've seen alot and experienced alot but the questions remains have I the power to change or inspire or still do I need to learn more, walk further.
* And thats a very long title for a poem :-)

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

...you

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
