Soft Spot

Blossom’s bloom in sight,
Laita’s lens, wondrous light,
Nature’s secrets bright.

Hole in My Bucket

Hole in My Bucket

Bucket, dear Liza,
What’s the fix, please advise-a?
I can’t deny ya.

There's a hole in my bucket, dear Liza, dear Liza,
There's a hole in my bucket, dear Liza, a hole.

        Then mend it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
        Then mend it, dear Henry, dear Henry, mend it.
 
With what shall I mend it, dear Liza, dear Liza?
With what shall I mend it, dear Liza, with what?

        With straw, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,

The knife is too dull, dear Liza, dear Liza,
The knife is too dull, dear Liza, too dull.

With what shall I sharpen it, dear Liza, dear Liza?
With what shall I sharpen it, dear Liza, with what?

        With a stone, dear Henry, dear Henry, a stone.

The stone is too dry, dear Liza, dear Liza,
The stone is too dry, dear Liza, too dry.

        Then wet it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
        Then wet it, dear Henry, dear Henry, wet it.

With what shall I wet it, dear Liza, dear Liza?
With what shall I wet it, dear Liza, with what?

        With water, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
        With water, dear Henry, dear Henry, with water.

In what shall I fetch it, dear Liza, dear Liza?
In what shall I fetch it, dear Liza, in what?

        In a bucket, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
        In a bucket, dear Henry, dear Henry, in a bucket.

But there's a hole in my bucket, dear Liza, dear Liza,
There's a hole in my bucket, dear Liza, a hole.

[In march the drones]
"Today we celebrate the first glorious anniversary of the Information Purification Directives.
[Anya Major enters, pursued by the po.]
We have created for the first time in all history a garden of pure ideology, where each worker may bloom, secure from the pests of any contradictory true thoughts.
Our Unification of Thoughts is more powerful a weapon than any fleet or army on earth.
We are one people, with one will, one resolve, one cause.
Our enemies shall talk themselves to death and we will bury them with their own confusion.
[Hammer is thrown at the screen]
We shall prevail!
[Boom!]

Loving Hearts

Thankful times of need,
Coffee at hand, stethoscope,
Loving hearts still bleed.

To all the healthcare professionals dedicating their livlihood to saving and improving each one, I extend my deepest gratitude and admiration. Your unwavering commitment, selflessness, and expertise are nothing short of heroic. From the doctors and nurses on battling frontlines to the researchers pioneering groundbreaking treatments, your efforts ripple far beyond the confines of hospitals and clinics. You are the unsung heroes whose compassion and resilience shine in the darkest of times.

Any and all of your sacrifices and dedication have touched countless lives, offering hope, comfort, and healing to those in need. Your tireless work reminds us all of the incredible power of humanity and the importance of solidarity. You are champions of health and wellbeing, and for that, we all should be eternally grateful.

Code changes what now?
Dollars upfront, take a bow.
User flow (UF), boost it somehow.

Guillain-Barré syndrome

Wings of a feather
It’s our enduring tether
Never to sever

Feathers are the weightless structures that allow creatures to fly. Providing insulation and protection, feathers are soft and light and flexible. Hundreds to thousands of feathers surround the body, the majority of which are smaller downy feathers that provide insulation. The larger, stiff flight feathers provide lift and maneuverability up in the air.

Autumn leaves now fall,
Whispering secrets to all,
Haiku’s gentle call.

In traditional haiku poetry, rhyme isn’t typically used, as the focus is more on the syllable count and the imagery. However…

One, Two, Three, Four, Five
One, Two, Three, Four, Five, and, Six
One, Two, Three, Four, Five

Haikus ancient art,
From Japan’s poetic heart,
Nature’s whispers start.

Rolling hills command,
Pedals push, sweat stains the land,

Harry Dean Stanton

Harry, his sage fades,
Silent film reels turning down,
Swing that bat down low.

Clean Air

Smoke-filled air now gone,
Zoo Bar’s breeze sings a new song,
Health blooms, joy prolongs.

iPhone 2 point no!

iPhone’s grand debut,
Two-point-oh brought joy, yet rue,
July’s launch, trials grew.

Phil’s light extinguished,
Nineteen ninety-eight’s ga-rief,
“Fire, good,” echoes brief.

Guns, twists of fate’s dance,
Vincent / Jules advance,

Frozen void they sail,
Adventure in quest prevail,
Pirate’s frosty tale.

Take a Look at Me Now

Take a Look at Me Now

Fugitive’s beauty,
Corruption chased, power fled,
Love, obsession, death.

Phil Collins
How can I just let you walk away?
Just let you leave without a trace
When I stand here taking every breath, with you, ooh
You're the only one who really knew me at all
How can you just walk away from me?
When all I can do is watch you leave
'Cos we've shared the laughter and the pain and even shared the tears
You're the only one who really knew me at all
So take a look at me now, oh there's just an empty space
And there's nothin' left here to remind me
Just the memory of your face
Ooh, take a look at me now, well there's just an empty space
And you coming back to me is against the odds
And that's what I've got to face
Instrumental
I wish, I could just make you turn around
Turn around and see me cry
There's so much I need to say to you so many reasons why
You're the only one who really knew me at all
So take a look at me now, well there's just an empty space
And there's nothin' left here to remind me, just the memory of your face
Now take a look at me now, 'cos there's just an empty space
But to wait for you, is all I can do and that's what I've got to face
Take a good look at me now, 'cos I'll still be standin' here
And you coming back to me is against all odds
It's the chance I've gotta take
Instrumental
Take a look at me now

Humdrum Sodgering

Sweating in the field,
Sogering’s subtle resistance,
Silent rebel’s work.
