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.
