Dance of Flamenco

Her lush body pulsating,
to the Iberian music
its rhythm fills the cave
Dance she must
As though it is the end

For the crowd in the tight surrounds
It is rare, it is exotic,
intense Spanish woman
Feet a-tapping, hearts a-thumping
In syncopated response

Captivated audience,
sipping sangria in a cave,
Is this real?
Don’t stop, we love it
An evening of sensuality
Breathless it is

To visit Spain
Is to embrace its color,
A must, olé!
Life is complete.

Oh rippling brook, where is 
your sting
Oh raging river, where is your 
Rain gardens, bioswales,
Have redressed all the harm
Inflicted on to you

A rejuvenated river, 
Is a home and playground
For young and old alike
The environment pristine and
The thinking on this
More valuable than silver and

Singapore’s Sorrow

Oh where are our Terrex Armour?
An enraged Middle Kingdom
Does not a calming situation make
Quietly, we lick our wounded pride
No one can fathom China’s wrath and opacity
The sun will rise again tomorrow
New lessons we learn each day
From the land of our ancient ancestors
