Ducks and Geese and Life Is Too Short For Fighting

 Ducks and Geese

  Paddlings do paddlings dee

Little ducks and geese

Baking in warm afternoon sun

 

Step closer, quietly and still

Viewing the ducks and the geese

By the tree

 

Wobblings do wobblings dee

The ducks and the geese

On the same bank of the pond

 

The ducks wobbling by the geese

Cleaning their wings

Minding their own things

 

No fighting I see!

Geese and ducks

Inches away from each other

 

The big geese bodies

Bully no little ducks

 

Comfortable the ducks are

With other kinds

Sharing space

And food

 

Happy they are

Different species

Paddling together in the pond

 

Humans are the same species

 

But Christians fight with Christians,

Protestants fight with Catholics

In Northern Island

 

In Syria

Muslims fight with Muslims

Alawites with Sunnis

 

In Iraq

Shias fight with Sunnis

 

 Muslims fight with Christens

Jews fight with Muslims

Hindus fight with Muslims

Buddhists in Myanmar(Burma) fight with Muslims

 

Muslims fight with Buddhists

In southernThailand

And other places

 

What is the matter with humans?

Unashamed, killing each other

Of the same kind

 

Ducks and geese in Branch Brook Park Pond

Coexist with each others

 

Paddlings do paddlings dee

Happy they are

 

Wobblings do wobblings dee

With their little tiny brains

Cleverer they are than humans

 

Humans are

Pity do, pity dumb

Weeping do and weeping dumb

 Life Is Too Short For Fighting

 My mother is laughing

But I am crying

Seeing her happy face

With her brother’s daughter

 

They are singing

Having a good time

 

My mother turns

Singing songs

From when she was young

 

She loves to laugh out loud

Mother I miss you

 

My heart is aching

I wish I were there with you again

 

Life is so fragile

And so short

She is gone

 

My recording of the event

Shows her laughing and happy again

 

Please do not fight!!

Enjoy each other

While we are still here in the flesh

 

Life will not last

The ending is coming so soon

Before we know it

 

Regretfully we say

We wish we can go back in time

 

Saying to ourselves

We would do more

Laugh more

And love more

 

But it is too late

She is gone

 

Mother please laughs loader

Let me hear you once more

 

Syrians, Egyptians, Iraqis, and others, please do not fight or kill each other.  Life is too short.  It is better to spend your time being happy together for you to achieve happiness and have a meaningful life.
