No. 3052

Meditation Hour. By CpSingleton © 2016

Sometimes every noise

Irritated the crap out of him:

From a fellow passengers’s

Wind tunnel breathing;

The grating sound of a neighbour

Laughing with their grandchild;

The constant wheeze-coughing of 

The asthmatic other neighbour;

The moped buzzing up and 

Down the road like a giant 

Angry wasp.

All he wanted was the peace to

Be calm and meditate.

Was it too much to ask? He thought, as the call to pray from 

The local mosque duetted with 

The ding-dong of the opposite church.

“All I want is peace!” He hollered

Over the sound of sirens wailing by.

“Why can’t you all DIE!” He added,

To the open, bedroom window.

The strange and sad thing is that

He meant every blackened syllable.

He saw the world as beautiful, 

If only the humans would leave

Him to wander around the 

Solemn streets in solitude.

That was his ideal of peace,

If only he could meditate on it.


About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.

  1. Delightfully dark. Or Darkly delightful? I think I shall go meditate on it. But they are working on the house next dolr, making a racket, and blocking my driveway. . . . Hmmm. Perhaps just delightful.
