Standing still head's up
Retrospect greatest pitfalls 
Mass consciousness whim 

Wandering till dawn
Waiting brave for the result
Less breathe heartless beat

Until the mind soar
Now is  inexplicable
Sufferings indeed

People grim anew
For the best of all Juries
Render canny nod

Continued service
Captivated voter's wit
Last laugh never ends.

Being One

Glitters spread all over
Seeking reflections amidst
becoming steadfast

Long lost better half
Reunite even afar
Sharing out fragments

Standing still staring 
Beyond space and time searching
A spark that mislead

Now after decades
Attracting as one fellow
When moments unfold.

Bright and morning star

Mighty warrior, Valient Prince
Glory be to God!

You Will Feel

be mindful
human rights are human ways
that lead down

be careful
the words above always remain
wear no crown

trap the sin
destroy the lie of conceit
look within

don't consume all that you see
you will feel
wrong like fire

Shrewd Gambler

Propensity sparks
Betting in numbers to win
Probable goals failed.

Tried bet once more though
Best loved numbers didn't hit
Long waited win ends.

Money for other things
Risking bet to win some more 
Awake while asleep.

Dreamt came before dawn
Whilst numbers gone out boxes
Jotted down traces.

Shrewd Gambler wandered
Vivid signs pooped up in mind
Winning is losing.

The Secret of Life

Traced undated thoughts
Conversed deepest life's questions
Ageless wit surmount

Mind traversed within
Whilst vibrant colors  made hue
Gently asked questions

Embraced each other
Radiating every facet

Bleeding FOR Life

The ground was so soaked
Where His blood ran down the cross.
Dead but giving life!

The tree He was on,
God let grow for His Own Son
To die on, yet live!

The tomb on the hill
was just borrowed for week end.
Stone was rolled away.

On that third morning
A bright light glowed from within.
Jesus had risen.

Women came to see.
Death where is thy victory?
Grave where is thy sting?

Probable Options in Life

Within mundane days
Countless options haunted once
Until best opted

Nothing rise nor fall
Only learning lessons gained
Real experience 

Time and space don't bind
Anything comes in mind's eye
Heights and slopes achieved

Sparks of lights mingled
Consciousness adopts matter
Reality without

Broader perception
Discerned beyond paradox
Life is a pattern.

one leaf dangled

one leaf dangled from
a single spider-web strand
in fresh morning air

as I greeted the sun,
sitting under a tree in
my dew-filled backyard

I was stilled by the
beauty of this lone leaf, in
its simplicity

But, then the leaf fell
I was startled, but the joy
in my heart  remained

Altruism in the Bible

That ‘Altruism’—
It’s so hard to live up to;
No recognition!
\ Altruism: Unselfish regard for or devotion to the welfare of others; feelings and behavior that show a desire to help other people and a lack of selfishness. Matthew Chap 6 verses 1-6 (King James Version) 1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. 2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: 4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret Himself shall reward thee openly. 5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

color awe
so crystal as to hear an

whiffed fragrance
a strangeness to scarcely taste
obscure scenes

light is sown
feel the warmth that follows miles
minds do smile


"An individual whose conscious awareness is such that a sound becomes fused with a sense of color and taste; for whom each fleeting impression engenders a vivid, inextinguishable image; for whom words have quite different meanings than they do for us—such a person cannot mature in the same way others do, nor will his inner world, his life history tend to be like others'."

Love's Rich Fabric

Two hearts become one
            keep no secrets; they eat holes

                         one rhythm, in sync

Old Train Running

Amidst the night air,
I hear the old train running,
ghost like in the fog.

She whistles her cry,
like sounds of spirits weeping
through the lonely wind.

The soft whir of wheels,
comforts my weary, worn soul,
within the darkness.

I am taken back,
by the sweet sounds in the night,
to my lost childhood,

and with eyes closed now,
I smile a bittersweet smile,
and bask in my thoughts.

God Bless America

                                                         Mountain majesty
                                                      Amber waves of fruited grains
                                                        God bless America

Holy Grimace

In such agreement
With all that is being said
Standing up in awe

Rocking side to side
With folded arms, shriveled nose
Squinted eyes, spiked shouts

Downward lips poked out
With wrinkled brow and clinched fists
Arms start rotating

Rolling, beating air
Shifting foot to foot ready
To launch in the deep

The speaker speaks on
With vi'lent fervor

Still with that grimace
Clapping hands, shaking the head
Nodding with more shouts

Now out the fifth row
A trot turns into a sprint
Til breathless with tears

Arms raised, surrender
Jumping sporadically
In freedom of soul

Time waits for no man.
Don’t waste it. Use it wisely.
Clocks run out. Time ticks.

The Blessed Virgin Mary

                                                         tears washed
                                                the blood-soaked feet
                                                    of her beloved Son

In Loving Memory
Of the blessed
Virgin Mary

Springtime of Your Life

Your eyes cracked with life,
hope born in Spring, fit to fly,
bright robin's egg blue...

At meetings, work, lunch or play
Don’t forget to smile

Fire Boys

Three did not bow down
To the king's idol... music...
Doomed to the furnace.

Seven times hotter,
The flames leaped out opened doors
Consuming king's men

And burning the ropes
Of the three thrown in the fire
Freeing them to dance

Round the Son of God;
They came out alive, unsinged
With no smell of smoke.

Dedicated to Caleb for his make-believe hero, Fire Boy.

A light unseen

   Traipse the dark wood home
somewhere candles burn for me
   even though I'm blind

See Greater Things

Ere Phillip woke you,
Beneath the Sycamine tree,
I saw your pure heart.
