The Cheat, Peace in Denial, The Serpent, The Heavenly Atmosphere, The Bright Sky

The Cheat

Trust dwelt deep in her

Made confidence reign supreme

The cheat blighted it.

Peace in Denial

The blighted in gloom

Clung hard to the shining torch

Sought peace in denial

The Serpent

Sure, he read ‘Macbeth’

To sting like a ruse serpent

And act like a lamb

The heavenly atmosphere

Heavenly birds’ song

Butterflies’ gaiety

Heart springing to life. 

The bright sky

Amazed to behold

Sparse clouds on the bright blue sky

Spirit soared high
