Oceanic Tranquility


(Harrisham Rhyme)

Dancing boisterously, the frills of ocean flare,
graced with colorful tassels of foam and shells,
delicate melodies levitate in moistened air,
enveloping environs in nostalgic smells,
glares of the nourishing sun warmly care,
serene thoughts stroll over the water swells.

From innocent pinks to mature reds


(Harrisham Sonnet)


Green parakeets would adorn every guava tree,
nibbling lush pink guava flesh under the summer sun,
gathered underneath, little village boys would see,
delightfully smiling with pink cheeks, they pursued fun,
youth and maturity still to approach, life was all glee,
homework, hair and clothes were often left undone.


A boy amongst them, with patriotism he grew,
adoring their motherland through his mother's true tales,
great freedom fighters had made them come through
the torturous times of foreign-rule, sadness and wails.
Emerging from his mother's care of soft pink hues,
gladly he merged past pinks with redness of an army male.


Not heeding the redness of bloodshed or initiation of war,
this audacious son defends his country from facing every scar.
