The night mist dances
over the darkening land.
She knows her job well
and as night deepens
she quickens in her journey.
There is much to do before dawn
on arrival she wastes no time
soothing, calming and inspiring
each to dream their beautiful dreams
and as peaceful slumber arrives
she smiles and swirls away
sharing more of her moonlit dreams.

Up again down again round and round,
whirling, rushing, all over town.
Why the hurry and where’s it bound,
as it swirls, blusters and pushes us around.
Constantly whirling to and fro.
churning the ocean, as it continues to blow.
So what’s it after and why does it run?
Is it chasing the Moon, or just following the Sun.

If we saw life through a child’s eyes
we would see a limitless world of wonder…
just waiting to be taken apart! Hansi Riley.

Children aren’t born with prejudice and hate,
but when raised with it they tend to emulate.
Then prejudice once more gets passed on down.
Until tolerance and education can turn it around.

He makes his appearance
in a cool set of duds
long white coat
Whistling a tune
that shakes the trees
loosening the last
of Autumn’s leaves.
He’ll flaunt his colors
of blue, grey and white
and orchestrate storms
to show off his might.
The days he’ll shorten
and nights prolong
his bone chilling song.
His powerful reign
will play on for a spell
but he’ll finally wear down
and go straight back to …. Hansi Riley

I was black he was white
So sad and useless was our plight
Not accepted in either place
Both afraid of the other race
Hate and prejudice all around
for us peace of mind
could not be found
It was the 50’s this was the way
We’d be family, if it happened today.
I wrote this at the end of the 50’s. it’s not about me, but, I was having a hard time understanding the prejudice and cruelty I saw…so I started writing. I found this poem, stuffed in a folder up on one of my shelves updated it a bit and decided to share it. Things have improved since then, but we still have such a long way to go. I pray for peace, love and the compassion of all mankind. Hansi Riley
