--Goodbye--To my Addiction-

The time has come to part,
I will leave many with broken hearts
If one day you call on me,
I'm sad to say I will hold my tongue missing each one relentlessly 
I'm not doing this for me; I am doing this for you
I could stay here and win, and not give in 
But, this soup bowl comes with demons and nasty shadows
Demons and nasty shadows, taking and crashing my light
Demons I had to fight off the entire time I was here
Shadows hating the way I welcomed every poet with a happy cheer
Demons and shadows whom drown in their selfish everyday pity.

For those smiling on my departure, 
I want you to have this wonderful gift 
So please copy paste this moment from the bottom of my heart
**I hope this gift brings you laughter, knowing 
I've been sad, these past few days, drying up my final soup tears**

I will miss this part of what makes me ME -my love and lust for poetry.
I agree with many I should never surrender to the envy of demonic dust
Giving up the passion that completed a part of my soul for years
But, the reality of life, is the life's I give and given when I make love happen
In my heart I know it's time to give myself back to reality
SO AT THE END I WIN, I'm the one who ends up with an everlasting smile
I'll finally be free from this place, where most treated me unfair & unkind
Free, from the negativity of the few who hide behind a dishonest disguise?

Wait until you notice your soup bowl's going stale
You will miss me, and I will miss you
But, my enemy will miss me even more
Reminiscing the times we spent hogging up 70% of blogs,
Arguing and fighting over not agreeing with many thoughts.
But, it was never the differences of opinions, it was more like---
Let's slay the Destroyer, a name like that should never be on top
So please know I am sad, and this is not the way I want to go
I'm not leaving you because I want to 
I'm leaving you because, the rumors are 
"The soup is better without the sweetness of the poet destroyer."
The only big thing about me -was my heart not my ego 
I never claimed to be the best; 
You're the one who claimed I am good enough
You took me in and returned my love
In ways others could and would not accept.
And for you my loving poet friends, and fans
I will walk away with my dignity/integrity; 
I can CARELESS IF I PLACE OR DON'T PLACE IN YOUR CONTEST
I guess I'm finally growing up 
In becoming the bigger/better poet.

Signing Off ---Love 
The Poet Destroyer

Wandering

I wandered the vastness of the universe
Just to met you here
I considered many life times to glimpse
Your adorable essence
I explored the magical land of Atlantis
Even the technological Lemuria
I lived a couple of thousand of years in Sumeria
And learned to spoke magical words
I lived with the hundreds of lambs in Syria
To learn how to live with them in the barren land
I was in Mongolia to learn how to cook food
And created my own menu
I was with the Emperor and Empress of Japan
To be one of their counsels
I was once a daughter of a peasant in Italy
Learned to live with a single meal a day
I learned to fly an airplane in France
And leave my profession for marriage
I craved to wrote songs in Canada
But still longed for someone I knew
I was with you in the battle ground of ancient Egypt
I learned how to kill and to be killed then
I tried to discover more about myself
Lived inside a cave of mountainous Indonesia
I entered the great temple of India
To learn how to be the master of my surroundings
But died when a mysterious epidemic spread
I created more thoughts and realized inside a cell in Chile
And killed myself for an escape to my wrong ordeals
I existed again to work on my rippled karma
I visited the temples of Tibet to find peace
I discovered how to heal myself
And every person I tormented
I roamed around the great City of Brazil
But to no avail I never saw someone like you
I remembered why I am here then
I still chased you in further ground of Incas
But nothing happened
You still left me for another person
I continued to soar within this land
And was killed while counting miles across the sea of England
I explored the lessons of to be abandoned
As I always waited for this love
I was catapulted again in the battle fields of the Philippines
Where I was killed in an ambush with my three best friends
Yet my desire never materialized
I returned here being wary you was out of life again
I decided to get back to the golden planet
But escaped before the capsule like craft flown
While have had a thought in mind
That I am expected you to came
And now finally we bumped each other again
This will be the last life I shall chose to see you
Since I planned long before this moment
I will be home where I am from
And be one with my sparks.

My crazy cousin

My crazy Cousin.

My cousin calls me crazy poet
Cause I don’t think like others
I’ve not seen her since she was three
A Flower girl to us lovers
When we got wed in sixty five
But now we write and all
Oh lord, we two are so alike
It’s just remarkable.

In eight weeks time, she’s coming here
To good old western Oz
I know we’re going to get on well
I do, and that’s because
That girl is crazy just like me
And she likes a good old laugh
She seems to be a grand old bird
I’ll say on her behalf.

She’ll bring her man, and son with her
They’re all creative folk
She can paint and write as well
And boy, it is no joke
The kind of talent that they have
It will be a joy to me
To meet up with forgotten kin
I can’t wait for this to be.

Broken Dreams

  Do you believe in the things that you've always known,
Can you understand the things you've been shown.
   Is it the visions you see that make you believe,
Or is the feelings you get when you've been deceived.
    The pain you feel a never ending ache ,
Tearing your heart and soul from you every day.
    Time ticks slowly pounding away at you,
Throbbing heart breaking and there's you can do,
    Must I settle for these lost and broken dreams,
Because it has all the signs that what it seems.
    How much should a man endure to find his way,
It cant possibly be like this hard for me every day.
    There is nothing so frustrating as being so confused,
Especially when you've discovered that you've been used.
    I will get through this lonely phase I have no doubts,
But I'm sure there will come a day I'll figure it all out.
    Cautiously I walk the path that's been laid before me,
In faith I will continue for I know he will let me see.
    Life will be thrown at you in so many different ways,
I will be prepared for these things for the rest of my days.
    Broken dreams will be the learning tree for me to grow ,
Living my life with Joy Happiness is what I'll always Know.

Rapture's Light

I’ve just had an experience unlike any other.
It was so great, cause now I’m with the Father.
I’ve just had an experience unlike any’ll know.
‘Cept for those who came with me in the flow.
Of Light! That is. The never-endin’ Light of the Lord.
The never-endin’ Light of the Lord!

I’ve been through hell all thro’out my life.
And I’ve had all kinds o’ different strife.
And I’ve been hard-press’d.
And I’ve been depressed.
And just when I thought I got the hang o’ things,
They change, and they rearrange.

I’ve done all sorts o’ things.
Stupid things. Crazy things.
But now times have changed.
And everything has rearranged.
And all that I e’er knew,
Has come back to bite you.

I’ve just had an experience unlike any other.
It was so great, cause now I’m with the Father.
I’ve just had an experience unlike any’ll know.
‘Cept for those who came with me in the flow.
Of Light! That is. The never-endin’ Light of the Lord.
The never-endin’ Light of the Lord!

So listen closely as I tell what’s happened to the world.
The world’s spun it’s last spin and has finally hurled.
The Hea’nly Host has brought us up.
All us Christians, that is, pup.
Anyone listening to this,
is more ‘an likely in any state but bliss.

If this is bein’ heard,
Then e’eryone is real disturbed.
You may’ve just witnessed all of us disappearing,
But there’ll still be another hearing.
Like it’s been for all of life, ‘cept for this one instance that is,
You may come to meet the Lord after you perish.

You’ll have an experience unlike any other.
It’ll be so great, cause you’ll be with the Father.
You’ll have an experience unlike any’ll know.
‘Cept for those who’ll come with you in the flow.
Of Light! That is. The never-endin’ Light of the Lord.
The never-endin’ Light of the Lord!

I shall end this now for I’m ent’rin the Pearly Gates o’ Heav’n.
It’s more beautiful than can be describ’d by any Reveren’.
If somehow this reaches you people on Earth,
Remember this one thing from the hearth.
There’ll always be hope, so stay strong!
Don’t worry, this torture won’t last long.

You’ll have an experience unlike any other.
It’ll be so great, cause you’ll be with the Father.
You’ll have an experience unlike any’ll know.
‘Cept for those who’ll come with you in the flow.
Of Light! That is. The never-endin’ Light of the Lord.
The never-endin’ Light of the Lord!

With This New Day

I have lived, 
And felt the cost, 
Paid my dues, 
But I have lost_ You. 


 Still I pray, 
As chaos looms, 
And as my blue turns into grey, 
I hear__ 
The angels sing- In tune. 

 Don't be giving in, 
Don't give up my son, 
Or fade away, 
Lift your chin with the sun__ And rise, 
With this new day!. 

 I have lived, 
And felt the cost of all my wonderin ways, 
I've paid my dues, 
I - Have lost you. 


 I can hear the angels sing, 
Your in a mistaken land__ Lessons learned in truth, 
As the grey seeks out the blue, 
She will__ Your daughter my son--- 
She will return--- To You.

For I have lived, 
Felt the cost of all my walkin days, 
I've paid my dues, 
I- Lost you....


I wont be giving in, 
Won't give up my girl, 
Or fade away, 
I'll lift my chin with the sun--- 
And RISE-- 
With this new day...

Upon the sea of moonlight

My quiet reflection..........

With the coming of the night

My quiet reflection

Upon the Sea of Moonlight

 

Upon the Sea of Moonlight

My journey through the night

There is no darkness to fear

For, the light of the moon is here

 

Soft silver moonbeams.........

More than I can dream

Guides me through the night.......

My journey upon the Sea of Moonlight

 

The night wind blew.........

Filling my sail..........

Filling me too..........

On my journey's trail

 

The night wind blew

Far in to the night

The night wind blew

Upon the Sea of Moonlight

 

For, the sail never flapped

It remained steady

The night wind trapped

Every gust...........

Every eddy

 

Witnessed only by the night

The silent crossing

Upon the Sea of Moonlight

   

Within all our dreams

We all take sail

Under moonbeams

The journey's trail

 

The night wind blows

Upon the Sea of Moonlight

Darkest

Before dawn

Before the sun rose

The coming of sunlight

 

The dream world

Travelled at night

With the sail unfurled

Upon the Sea of Moonlight

 

For some...

The journey never ends right

For  some....

Time to leave the Sea of Moonlight

 

Your sail, to catch moonbeams

Upon the Sea of Moonlight

To travel, in your dreams

Pushed far into the night

 

My quiet reflection...........

With the coming of the night

Your quiet reflection

Upon the Sea of Moonlight

The Blind And The Cripple

Blind-
Help me son, help me daughter, help this old beggar,
Give a coin, give some water, help this blind creature.
Help this aged, come to aid, help this downcast blind,
Draw your hands, off you pockets, mix your hands, combined.
Lacking sleep, bloody hunger! I'm pale and dying,
Ten rupees! quite some offer, at least start trying.

Lovely girls, my harmless kids, can't you see their plights,
They dream about shining prince, don't they have their rights.
Start giving at least something, shall we have some trust,
A coin, two or ten like him, something kind and just.

Cripple-
Hear me all, hear this cripple, hear this handicap,
Please be kind and please do mind, ah! coin on his lap.
I'm poor and deep in trouble, help this old cripple,
My legs were great, not again, I'm week and brittle.
Holding stick, without pleasure, I don't have a home,
Finding space, seeking treasure, kids are left to roam.

Share a coin or one or two, quench my thirsty lips,
Old ladies, beautiful girls, let me have some chips,
So let me beg, earn my right, give me something great,
Ten or more or what you have, something for my gait.

Blind-
Who is there, is he begging, Is he robbing me?
Go and beg anywhere out, you can't beg near me.
Can't you see that I cant see, don't you be absurd,
I came first, so he should leave, he should speak no word.

Cripple-
This is train, so I can beg, I shall take what's mine,
You can't brawl and make me stop, now you stop your whine.
They are souls, some nice people, they won't  make me leave,
You should stop, zip your lips or they will make you leave.

Passengers-
Blind and cripple, are they ill, what more should we see.
You are right they ain't so good, let them stop and flee.
Look, its great, to see them fight, beggars fighting each.
Hey! stop, what are you doing? don't you bark and preach,
You are ill and more than them, you should be more kind,
What they do, shall not matter, you should sit behind.

JUST BECAUSE

A different time and generation 
No spoken words could say more 
When touch was not just a feeling 
You could be rich when you were poor

And a smile was like the sunrise 
Eyes could make time stand still 
Beauty was in the moment 
No ticket needed to have a thrill

You could court without a judge back then 
A date could be a Sunday drive 
Dreaming was done while awake
No need of power drinks to feel alive

Life wasn't techno managed 
Engagement could be a surprise 
Watermelon seeds and Double Cola 
On the Princess' hand a sparkling prize

Chocolate was more than candy
Boy or girl was discovered on delivery day 
Dinner meant more than eating
The outside world didn't get in the way

But these good ole days haven't disappeared 
On Francis Street they've taken pause 
Past and present seamlessly intertwined 
You can't explain it..
it's just because!

Spaced Dutchman

Vacuum of space surrounds his hold
as he leaves the fair Cappellan
Darkness without and bitter cold
he seeks the far Magellan
How far he travels in search of gold
wrinkles line his star tanned face
Shouting I AM the adventurer bold
no echos resound in space
Silence answers he is  alone
darkness whispers its tragedy
the tanned faced turns to bone
an endless voyage on an endless sea.

And So it Begin

And so it begins


I gladly give up the controls to my LORD and Savior.
Who better to do the driving than the one who created the world?
Who better to trust than the one who can raise the dead.
Our illusion of control can ease our minds until life throws us a curve and it always does. 
 The appearance of control is an illusions
 any sense of control is an illusions 
Remember the devil disguised himself as an angel of light.
  He specializes in illusions,  making us believes we can live our lives anyway we choose.
  And we fall for it every time, just look at Eve in the Garden of Eden,
 she fell for the devils trick and Adam with her,
the result kicked out of Paradise, and so it begins 
We want complete control over our lives, and our destiny. 
And anyone offering us a glimpse into that has our full attention, who’s got time for God and his way of life, not us.
We believe in what we want to believe. 
 We choose to believe in a lie rather than the truth. 
no one lives like Jesus anyway, life is too short to let someone else do the driving. 
take back the controls, for our lives, and our destiny.  We become master of our own lives, 
and so it begins
the beginning or the ending,,,

A perfect goodbye


	Even though, perhaps, tomorrow,
As a concerto of Violins is departing along the clock,
	My green leaves will shine away under any morning's sun. 

	My love will be delicate, sweet, like a red apple,
While I, walking back and forth, with my fallen arms in this dimly
 	Room that beyond my eyes I behold the new passion,
A story shattered by freighted kisses, will born.

	Who, now, even as I spoke I am a man in the stream,
Faintly gently to sand, could have thought 
	The day is all free along the meadow's line?

	Shall be another date for tomorrow?

Goats

Goats

They’re everywhere
These pretty little creatures
On the serpent road to Exmouth
They be some of the features
Along with Emus, Kangaroos
And handsome birds of prey
These little goats be bountiful
They’re all along the way.

They be domestic goats 
Who’ve gone back to the wilds
Where they have bred one million fold.
As one moves along the miles
These little goats be seen so much
In their many shades and hues
Don’t know where they got their water
It be tough country too.

The weather here be hot and dry
As the sun bakes everything
And mostly here no rain does fall
To drinking water bring.
And yet these goats look healthy as
Such nimble little beasts
You’d see some dead there in the road
As the crows do have their feast.

That be the price of progress
That poor beasts have to die
That be the curse of human beings
Sometimes it makes me cry
Yet still they be so plentiful
These handsome little guys
Another little part of nature
That make love in me rise.

Next level

This waiting to get a year
older is not fun anymore ..
not worth the party
nor the cake
cannot dance long
looking  disheveled
i'd like to go to 
the next level
can't stand the
 knee swelling
and the teeny 
weeny dwellings
This waiting to see 
bad things happen 
to good people -
done got old.-
can't cry no more.. 
the end of fun.
the last days, 
at least for some.
the good die young.
This waiting  
now  minutes / hours
 the good get devoured
This waiting to get a year 
older is insane.
but I will remain. 
to die for a better cause

Termite country

Termite Country

We’re heading north to Exmouth,
Carnarvon we’ve just passed.
We be driving up a serpent road,
As the country seems so vast.
It’s hot outside, but in this van,
The air cons on and all,
As all along the road we pass,
Little goats, so beautiful….

And everywhere, most endlessly,
There’s a billion termite mounds.
Like baked brown little mountains,
They’re everywhere around.
We stopped near one, I marveled,
That a tiny beast, and blind!
Could build these blessed monuments,
It nearly blew my mind.

I took me then some photographs
Of these engineering feats,
As I let the awe and wonder,
Into my dull mind seep.
In such a vast, still country,
In the silence of the way,
Those mounds stood out so powerful,
In the heat of a sunburned day.

WHEN I 'M GONE

The dawning of the sun 
And the cry of the ocean 
The blooded-like rays of the sunset 
Full of loneliness and casted by scarlet 

The fall of the leaves 
Someone will soon to leave 
In the midst of the darkest place 
I feel the warmth of an embrace 

I am being used throughout the years 
Now searching for pure love tears 
I can hear now the march of the battalion 
The mark of my ruination 

I am longing to see this paradise 
Where my sun used to rise 
I misses the sweetest scents of the flowers 
While singing the lyrics of the proverbs 

By the love vested by my birth land 
My time comes to its end 
For that butterfly says goodbye 
My loveliest tears for my love before I 'll die

The structure of our soul

The semblance of existence remains in the worth of our lives,
In the structure of what grows within;
Yet the good of all mankind is measured by its worth 
And not by the makeup of those lives;
Still ponder the signs of our thoughts and beliefs
And the structure of the ideas therein     

We remain beneath the starlit side of the moon,
Forever lost in a light still unseen;                                                                    
And the intention of ones worth is measured by its character 
Until the structure of that character is consumed;
Farewell to the uncertainties of our faith
And what is held in the structure within

Could time in passage take the worth of us all?
Like a faun in the winter of its being;
But instilled our memories seem so long to depart
That the structure of thought is no more!
For a shadow is lost in silent demise 
Hidden in the structure within

PROGRESS

Like the folded petals and bud, I'll bloom and flower..
Like the worm, I'll change and I on metamorphosis...
Like a seed, I'll grow and bear fruit..

Like a baby crawl, little by little I'll stand...

Life is a constant continuous progress..
Even our age passes the time..

Time a nonstop reminder of events..
Mirror a reflection of unstoppable changes..

Yet, deeds and actions leaves irreplaceable  imprints..
Through even decades sprint...

Once Upon A Journey Made



And once upon a journey made
did I first ride the wind
far from the scented verdant glade
with mainsail fully trimmed.

The salted sea is memory,
my days of sail long passed,
where death was bound by destiny
to vacant shores so vast.

I feel a surge of heat within
this aged shell so cold;
a mind and body born to win
whose beauty has grown old.

But once abundant youth did thrive
on passion's purest dreams
where eros was the truth alive
and Siren's sung her themes.

A gift the gods cannot evade
and I shall not rescind
when once upon a journey made
did I first ride the wind.

A journey has begun

A castle filled with light

Love and laughter

Trees that whispered

Faeries that sing

With beauty and delight

 

Aquila and Moondust

The last night at Heartstone

A feast in the Great Hall

That such love

Is within us all

 

A journey has begun

In soft dawn light

The early sun

Took away the night

 

The Kings and Queens

Gave them a Shadowfire

As for the Heartstone

It has always been with them
It is seen

Every day

In their love

Softly glowing

 

A journey has begun

In soft dawn light

Moondust upon her horse

Aquila and his longbow

Of magic

Of nature

and golden sun

Still

after 6 years of knowing the presentational you, it has taken up till now for you to drink from 
the Waters of Wisdom. Many times you turned over a new leaf;
Still
you never knew what you thought you should have known. My how you've grown moving 
mountains to suit your path
Still
time has robbed you blind and you are behind life's schedule
Still
giving up the destiny you have foreseen is obscene to even fathom. I think of you in my alone 
time. It's almost as precious as the day, that day 6 years ago
Still 
our merriment ride is your past life and you continued alone. I only ask of you to continue to 
drink. 
Your thirst is as deep as the knowledge you seek and for that I am proud.
....Still

the road

Trust in me and hold my hand
We'll travel north to a distant land
I discovered a map, faded and old
To a land where its neither to hot nor too cold

Its better, I heard, to travel in two's
The journey is long but won't damage our shoes
Its known why we're leaving - let us not be coy
We travel together and that brings me joy

I've tried my best, but my last journey ended
By trying to keep straight on a road that was bended
So yes I know a bit of navigating now
Let me lead the way so you can learn how

Can I tell you how long and how far?
Shall we travel by foot or by car!
Child even from me that wisdom is kept
What matters is that we must take that first step

At night we may shiver and doubt the way
May all our fears vanish with the coming of day
We were at a place where peace is all we sought
Though in silence and gesture, great lessons you were taught

I'll watch you close as you will me
Together we triumph over obstacles that may be
You're fearless, eager, inquisitive and wild
I'm mother to you and I'm honored, my child

You entered my life at just the right time
You came and emptiness suffered a steady decline
You give me a strength that knows no end
I may be your nurturer but I'm also your friend 

Sin abounds and cloaks all with darkness,
You've seen me at my lowest in starkness
With angelic strength you have pulled me up
I drank too long on a poisoned cup

If I get tired please understand
The path is laden with rocks and with sand
This way is worth taking, to look back at where we've been
We'll start over again and wipe the slate clean

This journey will be hard for me
Taking you from point A to B
Seeing the effect my life has on you
I hope you'll see what's false and what's true

So trust in me and hold my hand
We'll travel north to a distant land
There will be stops along the way
But that won't mean for long we'll stay

We won't be alone, there are others too
Out there searching for peace like me and you
They'll try to bind us but we must not blame
Please understand, no two journeys are the same 

They say life's a journey, well I see its so
I've asked the wrong people what I needed to know
Now I've found my answers, in mercy and prayer
Thy will be done, all that's happened is fair.

Our bags are packed, just one or two
So I can carry you when I have to
With courageous hope and truth  and love
We'll commence down this road as angels watch from above...

UP TO SUCCESS, WANDERER

Ten thousands I do not have..
Sparkling diamonds unfortunately Im not bestowed as well
Big architectural design homeI don't have as well 
And So I have not also seen much of the world..

However..
What I do have is my family and my friends
What I do have is a mind willing to learn and discover 
What I do have is a heart sensitive to feel and understand...
What I do have is a handful experience

I have loved thee..
With all that I am I did..
Though It did not end to what I want..
Still, I remained hopeful 

As much as, I want to give..
There's a drive I need to control..
As much as I want to show..
There's that voice saying: "careful"

How can I not stop?
If it can be; it might be..
How can I not go on?
If I don't feel the possibility..

Between heaven and hell, it might be..
Over the sun and under the sea, maybe..
I will bravely the risk..
I will courageously seek..

Even if I'm not sure of the result..
Even if I may be place in hot waters..
I must try; I must try..
I must not quit; must not quit..

OUR JOURNEY

OUR JOURNEY
Gabriel A. Levicky
All this Universe and  all it takes is a blink of a right eye
While the other happily announces our end.
This journey is long & short at the same time.
Gods deserted this vastness 
Only their black hole mirrors remained.
Now it is gas and space, space and gas
Like a scoop of life melting 2 million light years away.
How I wish not to be afraid of rebirths and silent distances
Irrelevant to our cosmic insignificance.
It is a real race out there.
Who will invent another god soon?
Who will lick the memories in a glass jar?
Count cold fingers of unknown & borrow heat of yesterdays?
Who is wiser when everything is gone?
Your void is powerful enough
To be reborn as an imperfect ? mark.
Does this sun play  Ping-Pong with our Moon!
Tell me what else you need to believe in faith?
It is quite clear
Our journey is almost complete when least expected.
Never question echo’s depth
&
Rivers determination.
If you are lucky, you might forget
About yourself.

NYC, July 2012

Finding the spirit and the truth within

This poem came from verse two of the ‘Gospel of Saint Thomas’. This is one of the gospels that the church did not want us to see. How can the ambitious ones who want power over us, rule us if we know that salvation comes through looking within. Not just from belief. I bought this gospel, and was pleasantly surprised. Jesus says in this gospel what the Buddha, Lao Tzu, and many other great spiritual leaders, Say. This is the way I live my life searching for the truth within. I will never ever just believe. Not too many people know about this Gospel. The church has done well in hiding it from us…….Peter

Finding your own truth.

Jesus said to the people
So very long ago
{He really loved to teach these folk
He wanted them to know]
‘Let they who seek, keep on searching
Until one day he finds.
When he finds, he will be troubled
It will astound his mind.

When astonishment touches you
Over all you then will rule
You must seek then to discover
The truth so wonderful
As you realize the spirit
That dwells so deep within 
And know within your own experience
The truth beyond the din.

It is not enough to follow
The truth that’s found by others
No one else can give you truth
Whether sisters, or your brothers
Each person must discover it
And find salvation too
Through the liberation of his soul
That’s what we all must do

Bitter Sweet Journey

Nine years a stranger in a strange land,
     Travelling to my island in the sun:
A native son returning a native strand
     Where the journey had all begun

Of Icarus in the sun I death contrived,
     And my beating heart grew ever loud,
When the BeeWee wings of wax dived
     Into that misty archipelago cloud

Piarco tarmac on grassy plains below,
     Soon upon the trail of Queen's Park:
Charting the maps of time long ago -
    'Twas late and the boulevard was dark

The Banyan trees, the rustling palms,
     Glow of that high December moon:
To my soul a succour its island balms,
     And balmy breezes bore a gentle boon

Down the Churchill-Roosevelt I did see:
     Beetham shanties and LaBasse go by...
But 'twas Port of Spain's restless quay
     That conspired to grab my roving eye

Fishing boats off the high seas berth
     Her clamorous city docks and pier:
The Gulf of Paria's sleepy channel firth -
     And look... Independence Square

Upon the corner of Sweet Briar and Gray,
     Where as a boy I played in the rain:
Waking by carol song on Christmas Day -
     And hearken, Greyfriar's sweet refrain

See ancient Savannah parched and bare,
     Tormented by season's blazing sun:
Yonder hazy hilltop ridges no better fare,
     But soon the rains will in deluge come

Over blustery Northern Straits we flew
     To Buccoo Reef and blue island coral:
Tobago's Crusoe shores came we to view
     With her verdant hills rich and floral

Upon the Coast Road to Maracas Bay
     Drinking a fool's fill by the fire's flame:
But I was seventeen almost to the day,
     And at seventeen I was always game

I met a lass - her eyes through me tore,
     More lovely than words can convey:
Beauty I've not known since or before -
     I'd like to remember her this way

Fondly I gaze the dormant Oval grounds,
     Rapturous but for a short lived respite:
At my window did roar out the sounds
     That did so drown out the night

With February upon us quickly I fear -
     Carnival's sleeping tribes awakened:
I had no costume, no robes to wear,
     Yet my burning spirit was unshaken

On Jouvay morn at break of light
     Spilled hordes out of Sparrow's tent:
Revellers in the streets day and night
     Till Last Lap, Ash Wednesday and Lent

But our time here had drawn to an end,
     And leaving again bitter sweet for me:
Saddened alas but my heart does mend,
     For this is my home and always will be

                     -----------

The Lonely Horseman

The lonely horseman of old rides down that long,
lonely road.
Kings and Queens lodge and entertain him for the night.
In the morning it is always the same,
the nobility watch him as he rides out through the palace's gates.
This handsome man rides to find his beautiful lady whom he has never
really seen, but this lady is forever haunting his dreams.
For now no false loves will he receive.
Until his search has come to an end, he continues to ride down that long, lonely road.

Crossroads

Crossroads.

Waiting at the
crossroads, waiting
for the daemon in
his car,
Strive for
perfection, that
time when I'm
playing guitar,
One day I'll be
playing Delta Blues
in a bar.

Many a soul has gone
and trod this track,
Strode up to the
one, ready to make
their pact,
Make up for things,
their life seemed to
have lacked.

Thirst a plenty, the
minds set out to
win,
Hush the fear, as
night now closes in,
There's more in this
world, I'd really
call a sin.

What of others,
alone at home
asleep?
Roam their minds, in
dreams now they
leap,
Trust in God, for
their souls to keep.

He hands the paper,
to the man unwaged,
Stroll in the park,
for one who's now is
caged,
Uneasy choice, the
people all have
aged.

Rip against a
system, thats all we
really can do,
Signed in blood,
contract signed by a
few,
There are hardly any
choices, anyone
gives to you.

I volunteered my
soul, to stop me
from going insane,
Strife's an
illusion, what is
there really to
gain?
I am lonely once
more, left with my
heartache and pain.

Go to my children,
asleep while singing
this song,
Bled from their
future, What is it
they have done
wrong?
The truth is: I just
want to belong.

Waiting at the
crossroads, waiting
 for the daemon in
his car,
Strive for
perfection, that
time when I'm
playing guitar,
One day I'll be that
Delta blues playing
star.

Crunchy and Crumbs 1

Crumbs crumble under crunchy
Dogs journey with the crumbs
like vulture moving along mortuary
crumbs crumple under feets

crunchy crusade under riches
sheeps journey with crunchy
like rivers flowing into valley
crunchy grows under torns

Crumbs tortured under winds
burnt and torment in penury
crumbs always at the beautiful gates
Teenhood and Adulthood in tospy-turvy

Crunchy always in the beautiful houses
crunchy always tickled by sky
crunchy smile at thundery sky
crunchy smile at thundery sky
crunchy never knowing summers

UPON THE SEA OF MOONLIGHT

 
My quiet reflection.......... 
With the coming of the night 
My quiet reflection 
Upon the sea of moonlight 
 
Upon the sea of moonlight 
My journey through the night 
There is no darkness to fear 
for ,the light of the moon is here 
 
Soft silver moonbeams......... 
More than I can dream 
Guides me through the night....... 
My journey upon the sea of moonlight 
 
The night wind blew......... 
Filling my sail.......... 
Filling me too.......... 
on my journey's trail 
 
The night wind blew 
Far in to the night 
The night wind blew 
Upon the sea of moonlight 
 
For,the sail never flapped 
It remained steady 
The night wind trapped 
Every gust........... 
Every eddy 
 
Witnessed only by the night 
The silent crossing 
Upon the sea of moonlight 
 
Within all our dreams 
We all take sail 
Under moonbeams 
The journey's trail 
 
The night wind blows 
Upon the sea of moonlight 
Darkest 
Before dawn 
Before the sun rose 
The coming of sunlight 
 
The dream world 
Travelled at night 
with the sail unfurled 
Upon the sea of moonlight 
 
For some... 
The journey never ends right 
For some.... 
Time to leave the sea of moonlight 
 
Your sail, to catch moonbeams 
Upon the sea of moonlight 
To travel, in your dreams 
Pushed far into the night 
 
My quiet reflection........... 
With the coming of the night 
Your quiet reflection 
Upon the sea of moonlight

A DROP OF WINE

A DROP OF WINE 

A drop of wine shall fall... 
On to  a doublet 
Staining forever 
What was snowy white 
Blood red 
A passing during the night 

A walk along the castle wall 
I was there 
I saw you fall 
Taken from me 
I heard you call 

A drop of wine shall fall 
Blood red 
Staining forever 
My heart instead 

It started as a game... 
Skipping across parapets 
Such delight! 
You needed it 
Always done at night 
A free spirit... 
In all but name 

You delighted us all, 
with your antics in the Great Hall 
I saw you fall 
From a parapet 
My heart ,leapt 

You cannot conquer 
The journey within 
A drop of wine 
Shall fall 
On to my heart 
Blood red 
You will always be mine 
Inwards , I bled 

The call of tiny birds 
Fluttering of wings 
Took you to the stars 
Where you saw, 
so many wonderful things 

The journey within... 
Can sometimes begin 
With a drop of wine 
Blood red 
Staining forever 
Hearts , instead

THE MOUNTAINS OF THE MOON

Far away in the mountains of the moon 
This is where we shall meet 
A long time travelling.... 
We will meet soon 

Far away in the mountains of the moon 
You will know..... 
I will see you soon 

Far away in the mountains of the moon 
Where our love shall meet 
We have come so far..... 
Following our chosen star 
..........I will be there soon 

For this journey is long..... 
to the mountains of the moon 
Where we belong 
.........I will be there soon 

Far in time.... 
This journey set 
Before we first met 
This irresistible course.... 
This irresistible force 

Far,far away 
in the mountains of the moon 
This is where we will stay......... 
.........I will see you soon

EAGLE FLIGHT

cascading light 
washing over me 
on sunlit wings 

fierce golden glow 
feather edged sundancer 

sun light in your heart 

goose pimples of pleasure 
sun trickling drops of pure gold light 
dapple on me 

sunbreathing,basking sunshine 
golden wings soar 
rush of warm wind, 
blinding white light 

blue silence 
calm of mind 
flex of golden wing 
on sunlit clouds of white 

pure joy of golden light 
pure joy golden flight 

feather of mind 
feather of heart 

sunlit heart 

breathe me 
soft golden journey 
my journey 
your journey

For Man

It’s a journey man
Did all go accordingly to plan
I swear it was a journey for man
The results of a plotted hand
It’s a journey man

The forgotten me 
Souvenirs of a begotten plea 
Did you think I’d change
Do you miss me 
Do not beg upon things 
You do not wish to see
Was it a journey?
Twenty years 
I’ve survived in this tourney
Laid it down 
And across my face 
Would become a smirk
A gift 
A treasure  
For those whom would mourn me 
Given thought 
Simply driven 
By the misery happiness brought
I stand, I rest 
As I breathe 
I demand to receive 
What you have in your chest 
Simple flaws of a failure
The sorrow from my eyes 
In no other words could I tell you 

It’s a journey for man
Did all go accordingly to plan
I swear it’s been a journey for this man
The results of plotted hand
It’s a journey man
