The Clown Portrait

The Clown Portrait
“A Poem About A Clown Portrait I Saw In A Dream…”

I had a dream about a mysterious painting…
In my dream, I saw a man painted smiling…
Somehow, I found his expression very intriguing…
The look in his eyes bewildered my reasoning…

 

His face was covered in white paint…
And his eyes surrounded in red paint…
His nose appeared to be a red spot…
And his smile was painted…

 

He seems to be smiling happily…
But in my eyes i see him very dreary…
As though gloom has shrouded his very sanity…
what could he be he thinking so sadly…

 

His eyes seemed to be as though they were in mourning…
As though his happy face was but a mere mask he was wearing…

 

As i gazed more upon this portrait…
I felt sad and very lonely…
As though I had just been part of a sad and awful tragedy…
What could have been his story…

 

I wonder intently…
Pondering deeply…
With the Clown Portrait that seemed to be overflowing with mystery and tragedy…
With the Clown Portrait that seemed ever so sad yet ever so happy…

 

I woke bewildered and dreary…
What was that about I wondered sincerely…
Then it suddenly came to me…
Was I the clown with a smiling frown..?

 

This painting is closest to what I saw in that dream…

One Who Makes You Smile

One Who Makes You Smile
I hope someday you’ll let me…

The Night Sky


 

As I lay alone in my bed gazing at the stars tonight…
I remember how your smile shines like starlight…
As pretty as the stars in the sky shining so bright…
In these dark, cold, and lonely nights…

 

I’d do anything in my power to see that wonderful smile…
Write you poems, even swim the length of the River Nile…
Oh how I wish I was the camera in your mobile…
So, I could capture your smile and always make you smile…

 

I wanna be the man who makes you laugh…
Never the man who makes you frown and makes you sad…
Never the man who breaks your heart and makes you cry…
I wanna be the man who makes you smile…

 

Will you let me be the man who makes you smile?

 

I hope someday you’ll let me…

 

I hope you are not just another dream to me…
I hope you are my future, my destiny…

The Northern Territory

The Northern Territory
A Poem about Australia’s Under Appreciated Northern Territory
By: Julian Javier
Date: May 5, 2011 @ 8:45AM GMT +8
 

Somber yet full of wonder…
I am the Northern Territory who lies over yonder…
“Who am I?” They all ponder…
“What can I offer?” they all wonder…

 

Darwin is my main city and I have many places that seem boring but sure are lovely…
Here are some places where you can see some of my beauty…
Kakadu, Arnhem Land, & Litchfield National Park are to the north of my territory…
Uluru, Kata-Tjuta, & Tenant Creek are to the south; add these to your itinerary…

 

Isolated and solitary…
I am located at the top most of the country…
It’s a little sad here now, I wish you could come here and visit me…
For only a few care and recognize me and I am very lonely…

 

Because of Tracy’s heartless madness…
It has been 43 years of this lonely and dreary sadness…
On a whim, she left 45,000 of my people homeless…
And 65 of my people died on a whim of her frenzied madness…

 

With their hearts filled with sorrow and dread…
They all left me forlorn and to other places they fled…
My heart was rend asunder while it slowly bled…
And cannot be mended by any thread…

 

Neglected by everyone else but my people across the land…
I was many times destroyed by chaos or disaster at a scale that is grand…
But yet here I am and I still stand…
I always stood up even though I was unbuilt by fate’s hands…

 

Destroyed and rebuilt due to chaos and disaster…
A place both lovely and sad but filled with wonder…
Visit me me and experience the wonders I offer…
I am the Northern Territory located over yonder…
