Why

I don’t know

why..

 

birds migrate

and rivers run

dry..

 

why fate unfolds

like a story

told..

 

of rising high;

falling

low

 

rising high..

 

I don’t know

why.

Moving On

Places 

and faces

have gone..

 

tears shed

have left no trace;

no sign..

 

time

bled away..

 

it led us

onwards..

 

moving on.

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.

Silent and Still

I need

to be silent

and still;

fill my mind

with kindness..

 

reaching out

I touch all souls

 

with mine..

 

it’s my rhyme

and reason;

a neon sign..

 

on the path

to  peace.

This

Voiceless thoughts

rippling inwards 

outwards..

 

a distant

reflection;

instant healing touch

 

of so much

so much

more..

 

this

ethereal

connection..

 

this

beautiful

abyss..

 

this.
