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;

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.

Create

Create

balance

from chaos;

light

from darkness..

 

break apart

your heart

 

press restart..

 

and let love in.

Seeds

Maybe

I have always known

the seeds of love

now fully grown..

 

would remind me

of all that’s lost

and tossed

aside..

 

in the living

of life..

 

and giving 

away

of our truth.
