Poems

Moving On

Places 

and faces

have gone..

 

tears shed

have left no trace;

no sign..

 

time

bled away..

 

it led us

onwards..

 

moving on.

Home Within

A refuge..

where tensions dissolve

truth is spoken

and conflict

resolves..

 

where wounds heal

harmony returns

and the soul

reveals..

 

hearth and heart 

are akin..

 

I’m home

within.

Something Beautiful

A shaft of light;

the flash

of belief..

 

forgiving insight;

a falling

leaf..

 

benevolent toil;

the butterfly’s

wing..

 

a merciful smile;

all fragile

things.

Solace

Light

fades;

hidden

from view..

 

this world’s

parade 

of pain

keeps passing

through..

 

can

we find

some lasting 

solace

here..

 

and start 

anew.

A Pebble

So here I am..

 

my ragged edges

made smooth; softened

by life’s jagged touch

 

like a pebble plunged

through the rocky flow..

 

knowing nothing

for sure

 

though the water

is pure.
