Who Is Man Really?

Poem By Grant Howard Bunce

Ebbing tides remove the footprints we leave in our lives.

Lapping waters rearranging the sand ready for the next players to enter.

For a brief moment man stands on the sands that slip through his toes and regrettably through his hands.

Unfulfilled puny man, who couldn't really make a difference to this world.

In dust he sleeps.

Is it a better place now he has gone?

Did he stop world poverty or the bomb? Heal the sick or mend mans path?

Oh puny man full of dreams and hope, reaching the end of his days, alone.

Everyone is alone at the end of their days.

When death comes we face it alone.

Man judges man, tells him his poem is not very good.
Says it disappoints him, look at me I'm really good!

Happy Apples

Apples sit up in the apple trees, bumping together in the breeze,
Rosie cheeks in the warm suns light, huddled together on a cold dark night.

Singing songs when no one can hear with the blackbirds or a passing deer.

The Moon And It's Spoon.

The moon drags the sea about,
and makes the tides come in and out.
The man up there in the moon,
stirs up the sea with a long spoon.

Our Friend Morpheus

Sleep has arrived, morpheus is calling, pulling me away,
too many worries crowd my mind and force me to stay.

Eventually he takes my hand, powerless i go in silence,

Bitter Sweet Love

I breathe a heavy sigh lost in my thoughts of you, I look out the window ignoring birds who bill and coo.
I forget to breathe nothing else matters when I'm thinking of you.

This madness that i live every day, you're so close I could almost touch you.
