Terminus


This is the Last One
the One that ends them all
Whatever was there is gone
and this is but the remaining shadow
that fades gently into the Timeless Mist
ne'er to return
Perhaps some day, before The End, another
will come
and maybe a new door will open
to reveal another Muse
But until that Time, All will remain quiet
and Still
Sleeping until the Iron Bell calls forth.
Farewell

To Be


The Spirit of the Air spoke to me
No words, not speech, nor hearing
but, instead, the Language of Touch,
My Skin understood perfectly
though I had no Knowing,
and the Revelation of it touched my Soul,
What the Spirit said to me
was all at once a Breeze, a Coolness, a Caress
So Light, yet I could feel the ebb and flow of the syllables,
A Vocabulary of Vortices, stirring the Air
and with each Touch a new Understanding
of what it is to 'Be'
Just 'To Be'
At One, In One, with Me, Myself, My Heart,
The Spirit of the Air Touch-whispered
in my Soul's ear the Wind of Silence
and in this Silence
Deep Joy and Happiness
and Peace.

Tears for the Lost




Today I cry for humanity
because humanity has lost its Soul
A photo....a woman...a rifle....
a dead Giraffe....
She is so proud...her poise...her smile
a conqueror of Wild Things
a huntress....she stalked...and was patient
as the Giraffe peacefully munched some leaves
stationary...peaceful...mild....Alive
she aimed...pressure on the trigger....
final pull and it lay dead
What a fight it put up....as it stood still....eating
How brave the woman with the rifle....
But how Sad the state of her Mind
How cold the heart that beats inside
How little she thinks of Life
How can we call ourselves civilised
when we kill for sport...for the thrill,
those defenceless animals
that cause no harm....
There is no 'Humanity' in humanity
and today I cry for them.

Serenity

In the Moment I feel All,
Clarity of Perception fills my Mind
and I join seamlessly with the Universe
Mind, Body, Spirit, Heart
Unified in a Great Joy
Sadness Past, no longer Present
Demons Old, banished Forever
Separateness Felt, no longer divides
Painful Memories, Laid to Rest
Tears that Fell, now Evaporated at last

In the Moment, for there is only the Moment,
All becomes One,
The divine of the Universe both Seen and Unseen
a welcome Companion on my Path,
I walk with Serenity and Beauty
and Great Happiness in my Heart
I am at Peace.

Lament...


When the stones cry
and the Heart of the World
is rendered apart
When Trees weep as their roots die
and the Wind howls in pain
Where will we be?
What shall we say?
When the Oceans boil in Darkness
and Mountains echo the Agony
of Earth's Soul
What will we do?
Where can we go?
When the Clouds carry Death
and the Air scorches the Land
When there is nothing left to eat
Will we still be blind
Will we have learned
or will it be too late?

Now


"I Stood and looked at the Moon
Her Wondrous Light
Ravaged by the Stormy Clouds
As they Tumbled and Rolled
Across the Windy Night Sky
Glimpses of Starlight here and there
in All too brief a view
An Owl called in the Distance
the Wind carrying the sound to my Ear
A scurrying in a nearby hedge
told me the Night Shift had begun
I Bathed in Moonlight
And gave thanks for All that is
for All that Is exists only in that Moment
That single infinitismally small measure
of Time
I Breathe it in, I acknowledge it
and effortlessly Move to the next Moment
I Exhale and Let the previous Moment Go"

Moment of Despair


"Lost in a vast Ocean of turbulent sea
I cling to my raft, full of fear for the future
The skies are my eyes and they cry
my Heart is the Ocean and it heaves
The waves crash down
and I am lost seeking safe dry land
that I cannot see"
