Bloom Not, Wolfsbane

Bloom not, cruel wolfsbane
In this forward spirit of mine
Let the moon dim and wane
For love has diseased my kind 

The girl was luscious in the wake
Rising at break of dawn
If only she knew I was a mistake
Before we made the bond

I grew fond of her everyday
And night gave me loathe and dread
My heart was weak, I couldn’t send her away
But fed in her desires instead

I kissed her in the forest of green
I had forgotten what I am
I gazed into those eyes, so keen!
A smooth and gentle lamb

 
One day I stopped to think a bit
My stomach wrenched and twirled
Through love I had lost my sense and wit
To a pitiful village girl!

Avoiding her best I could
I hid from beauty’s caresses
But again she found me in the wood
And so grew the obsession

But so grew the moon
And the waning was abstaining
Good night, wonders of the noon
With memories remaining

Alone I wandered in the cold
Knowing it was coming
The sky grew dark, the sun was sold
Behind the madness blooming 

Transforming! Changing!
My mind went all a blur
Rage deforming! Madness deranging!
I couldn’t think of her…  

The time was gone!
The night had come!
I thought I was alone
But then I saw her standing there
Pale and stiff as stone

I woke up that dawn sitting there
On the forest floor
And there lay she all bloodied and bare
The lamb that I adore!

The wounds I found were like a gift
I know they were from my girl
I’m glad she fought her will to live
As I blindly devoured her

An honorable lamb with bloodied hooves
She’ll never leave my vision
Sacrificed for ravenous wolves  
And no cry for jurisdiction 

 Bloom not cruel wolfsbane
In this forward spirit of mine
Let the moon dim and wane
For love has diseased my kind 

-an oldie , hehe

Oak Tree

     the Oak  Tree

You were always someone special
In the midnight hours in my dream
I could really feel the tension
A tree, a limb, a friend
No matter how hard life came at me
There you stood perfectly
Letting me lean up against your stand
I will never forget the day you swayed the first hi 
I talked as if you were hearing
A tree, a piece of wood in my path
A punching bag
My Oak Tree you will always be

One day in my sorrowed life 
I stopped by just to reminisce 
Your beauty, I find so divine
Your leaves took me backwards
I fell in love with your soul all over again
With a beauty, I find so divine 
Hope you will always be there my friend
Indulging the felling you transcend 
A cold spot never found in you
Re-breathing your surround, no need to make a sound
The power you have when you make my heart mend
My Oak Tree you will always be my friend

In the lowest day of my life
I went on a secret walk to look for comfort
The beauty of you is no longer there
Walking around with an extra deep pain of hurt
Not sure how one could bare such a loss
Dropping myself to my Knees upon the dirt
An empty spot is the only thing there
My friend I thought you would always be there 
How can they take you away from this world?
A lonely field
No root, no seed
Loneliness no one to lean up against
You will no longer be there
How could they cut down, my friend?
My friend the Oak Tree.

Where are your seeds?

By;PD

I am he as you are me

When the night wind changes course
sending breezes from the north,
when farmer's fields lie brown and fallow
and empty ropes swing from the gallows,
when children's faces are drawn and gaunt
and earth-bound spirits wail and haunt,
when eagles scan the barren snow
and field mice shiver deep below,

The dragon stirs deep in his lair,
the townfolk sense him with despair,
the mountain rumbles as he wakes,
he spreads his wings, the valley quakes.

He snorts and breathes a sulphur fire
and eyes his cache with dark desire,
gold and gemstones line his cave,
a sea of diamonds with emerald waves.

The trees are black against the snow,
one warrior stands to face his foe,
chain mail clanking, his sword is honed,
he goes to face his fate alone.

Fire breathing, wing-spread vast,
the warrior is at first aghast,
the dragon's chest and stomach, too,
shine with gems of multi-hues.

He'd slept so long upon his loot,
he wore a jewel-encrusted suit.
He saw the warrior's weapon glint
and chuckled at this innocent.

The dragon swooped and breathed his breath,
the warrior smelled the scent of death.
Many times the dragon dove
and set aflame the fields and groves.

Lost in this game, he gave no thought
to the warrior who mattered naught,
and as the dragon flew by low
the warrior drew his mighty bow.

The bow and arrows were Elfen-hewn,
inscribed with words in ancient runes.
The warrior held his breath and aimed
and steeled himself against the flames.

The dragon saw the arrow cocked
and turned his head, their eyes were locked.
The arrow's flight was straight and true,
into the dragon's eye it flew.

The warrior was elected king,
he wore fine jewels and heavy rings,
but though he tried, he found no peace,
he'd formed some strange bond with the beast.

The corpse was plucked clean of its jewels
and all the people danced like fools,
though he was king of hill and glen,
they never saw him smile again.

Changes

Lady, Don't say I didn't try to warn ya
But I'm taking this thumb all the way to California
I'm just gonna go
Even though I love you so
Got a ramblin' urge that just won't let me rest

Took my guitar and the clothes that's on my back
Got my life planned out and everything's on track
So I ask you please don't cry
Now it's time to say goodbye
I'll think of you when I settle down out west

Today's the day that I'm gonna shift my load
Leave the past behind and hit the open road
But no matter what I do 
I'll still dream of you
I've got you in my heart and there you're gonna stay

If it's changes for the better I don't know
I stilll feel that it's time for me to go
Yes, we had some happy years
I don't want to see your tears
If changes come again, then I'll be back some day.

Love Story Gone Wild

when beauty met the beast
she was a cutie, he was a beast
she thought that she'd speak to him at least
and at least find out what made 
a beast, a beast

as the beast looked at her 
he wondered; what a feast
but the way she spoke to him
was gentle and curiosity increased

he found her some what pleasant
and laid his aggression aside
for now he'd grown accustom
and hoped she would abide

as time past he looked at her
as he never did before
tender conversations
brought his knees to the floor

she'd become his weakness
his task forever more
he liked to hear her voice
and see her walk through the door

on holidays there were presents
on birthdays a feast
each special day that brought her presence
was a holy day to say the least

now i am wholly human 
and i can tell you well
that jealousy fits us humans
and beast very well

one look at competition
can take us all to hell
we can never avoid perdition
when one other than God
we our souls sell

and from God comes the testing
old men and prophets tell
the beast asked God for patience
and God knows how to teach it well

the next time the beast see's beauty
there is a ring on her hand
he didn't care to mention it
but that was one thing he couldn't stand

worn down he ask her
what the ring meant on her hand
slowly she confided, it meant she'd
marry another man

the beast now was furious
he did not understand
that all these years confiding
he was suppose to be the man

what then would become of her
his conscious did demand
all the years he spent with her
were coming to an end 

yet love had one more service
his heart would command
tell the maid he loved her
and ask her for her hand

let all the powers of wickedness 
and goodness take their stand
upon this maids answer
i'll bravely take my chance

BEAUTIFUL BLUE WORLD

I bent down 
kissed the top of her head gently 
For , I must go, 
in to the night 

This beautiful blue world 
I cannot see it all in one day 
Sails set and unfurled 
Moon, full 
Silver at play 

A kiss to last... 
A day... 
A lifetime... 
For, I must go.. 
In to the night 

On the deep blue 
As wide... 
As my heart is open 
Beautiful blue world 
I love it too 

One day at a time 
A kiss to last... 
A journey... 
As far as the heart, 
is prepared to go 
A kiss to last 
Journeys' past 

One day at a time 
This beautiful blue world 
Held in my hand 
Like a kiss... 
A set sail... 
Such things 
To my heart, 
always last

Seen with love

They lay down in awe and fear,
Of what their love was bringing near.
They gazed into each other’s eyes
And so did rhapsodise.

They lay down to gaze into
the eyes and soul and heart so true.
They gazed until,when overcome,
They were united into one.

Their souls and bodies were conjoined,
And thus their hearts were well entwined;
As honeysuckle on the walls,
In joy’s sweet arbours does grow tall.

Their loving lips and eyes and hands
Gave pause to time’s soft flowing sands;
And while they touched and gazed so long,
The birds sang out in glorious songs.

The eyes are mirrors to the soul,
and love will make us grow more whole.
Gaze lovingly on humankind..
And hold care in your mind.

Dullahan Rides

Walk with me in the dank moonlight
through the chill, rising, storm
so we can grasp the majesty
of Dullahan still born.

Without heads his horse and he ride
across the countryside
His head in hand they roam the land
none live where he abides.

A rush of blood, a gory spree 
will take the sight of man, 
then off they gallop wild and free
Dullahan, head in hand.

Here’s hoping he don’t call your name
for that would be worse by far  
your soul would flee and fly with he
a soul as black as tar.

Carry your gold for I am told 
this alone does he fear
and we can watch as he rides by
come give us a kiss now, me dear.

The winsome lass took his strong hand
and down the lane they walked
as in the distance hedgerows fired
and hooves clapped as they talked.

The sound drew near, a gate flew wide
the lassie shrieked and ran 
so only her randy lad was 
taken by Dullahan.

So, don’t think to woo by moonlight
near the shore in Galway
Dullahan hunts with cruel sight 
each wayward soul a stray.

*While no-one knows for certain how the Dullahan originated, it is thought that he is the embodiment of the Celtic fertility god, Crom Dubh, who was worshiped by an ancient king of Ireland, Tighermas. Each year, Tighermas sacrificed humans to Crom Dubh, and the usual method was decapitation. The worship of Crom Dubh ended in the sixth century, when Christianity came to Ireland.

Voice with out a face

You were on my mind last night
  So I sat myself down to write
Midnight talks
  Make believe walks
Like the rain
  Your voice soothes the pain
Touch my heart
  We're so far apart
I wait for the day we meet
  What a worldly treat
Dream all the while
  Just to see you smile
Reaching;A touch from me
  You will run I do believe
Feelings I fear
  As our day draws near
I cant wait 
  So dont be late
Thing seem so clear
  The reason I fear
So on the day we meet
  XOXOXO we greet

The day the voice has a face

The sensitive soldier

The sensitive soldier

A boy like him, how could he think?
That a soldier he could be?
He was soft, poetic, sensitive
And yet this lad, did he
Join the army for to fight
To keep his country free
The lad he was adventurous
So he joined up happily.

Then he learned the very hard way
That war is for the strong
There’s no place there for heart and soul
The boy did not belong
All the stuff he saw, it broke him down
And made a mess of him
He had a breakdown, fell apart
His each day felt so grim.

They discharged him, and he became
A kind of nowhere man
He did not fit in anywhere
And now this man called Dan
He lives alone, and writes his stuff
And drinks a lot of beer
Cause what his life is all about
He really is not clear.

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.

Where are all the fairies

Where have all the fairies gone
where do they go at night.
Do they take to the wing
and off they go in flight?
I thought that they were down
at the bottom of the garden path,
so when i'm in the garden
I look close down in the grass.
So why is it that when
I am tucked up in my bed
I can hear them laughing,
Or is it in my head?
I wish that I could tell you
just where those fairies be,
But when I go and look for them 
they always seem to flee.
We've even had a fairy ring
upon our lawn appear,
But even then our search for them 
they seem to disapear.
One day I'll find the fairies
but till then, even if I fail,
Il'll always believe in them 
it's not a fairy tale.

If the world were full of hippies

If the world were full of hippies
there'd be nothing left to prove
except peace and understanding
and a little bit of groove

Noone would be homeless
Like many live today
We'd build beautiful communes
where anyone could stay

Together we'd make music
to the beat of mother earth
there'd be no fighting or war
Everyone sharing equal worth

We'd grow our own vegetables
 and create trinkets to sell
We'd open up our minds
break free from our shell

Every colour and every race
would teach one another
we'd become a united family
every sister, every brother

We'd bless all gods creatures
show respect for the land
Give free hugs to everyone
openminded to understand

Nature would speak to us
Our world would become one
with peace and understanding
and a little bit of fun

CIRCLES OF EAGLES

On sunlit wings 
I travelled 
High above the earth, 
in the realm of spiritual beings 

Mighty mountains 
and cool streams 
Azure oceans 
I live my dreams 
I live my emotions 

I am but a feather, 
beginning to fly 
My body 
My heart, 
carried high 

Clouds of purest snow 
Golden sun 
I passed below 

Another day, 
in the blue 
You could have it too 
Come up if you may 

Circles of eagles, 
in the blue 
You are all with me too 
High above, 
clouds of purest snow 
Together we flew 

Such love, 
in such golden light 
Circles of eagles, 
above clouds of purest white 

The higher I flew 
I met people I lost too 
My father, 
wings aglow 
Beside me, 
golden bright 
Circles of eagles 
High in the light 

A spiritual place, 
high above 
Touching space 
Such love, 
in golden light 
Circles of eagles, 
in flight

BENEATH A WESTERN SKY

A Queens' jewelled hand
Lifted slowly,
pointed to the Western land

For, in the West
Stars were seen
Precious things
Hidden
Waiting to be found
In the forests of richest green

A star
Beneath a Western sky
A journey
With you
Deep in to the night

A Queens' jewelled hand
Lifted slowly
To a Western land
Where so many stars
Waiting to be found

Stars for you and I
To be found
Beneath a Western sky

The journey with you
To find this precious thing
Of a star...
Beneath a Western sky
Colour too

So many nights to pass
For, in a Western sky
You and I,
Will find a star
Waiting to be seen
In the forest of richest green

To the edge of night
You found..
What you were looking for..
In the west
Under starlight

Hand in hand
Walking through
Western land
I followed a star...
Found in a Western land
That star....
Was you

WORLD OF WHITE AND BLUE

Sea of blue, 
crags of white, 
bitter wind, 
majestic sight 

For this is world of white 
and blue 
white mountains of ice, 
blue sea salty and true 

midnight sun on icy wastes, 
cool reflected light, 
pristine wilderness, 
not to everyone's taste 

Stark white cold, 
wind eroded columns of ice 
roar of wind 
roar of sky 

Icebergs scattered in the blue 
raw wind strips me bare, 
the environment does not care.... 
about you. 

Sea,sky and ice, 
nature's freezing cocktail, 
untameable wilderness, 
man cannot sacrifice. 

Pure elements, 
to touch the senses 

Inhospitable sea,sky and ice, 
its very extremes, 
to prevent men of this world 
carrying out their dreams 

Pure cold energy roaring, 
with bitter intent, 
gulls soaring, 
men......spent 

Nature's cold refuge, 
from man and his dreams. 
White armour protects,temperature deflects, 
man's subterfuge 

white mountain, 
white water, 
white wind 

Blue sea, 
blue sky, 
blue wind 
world of white and blue

A FALLING MAN

The wind passed through the trees 
A delicate touch 
A delicate leaf, 
fell on me 

Crisp and tan, 
down it fell... 
You cannot change 
A turning leaf 
A falling leaf 
A falling man 

I held it in my hand 
So light... 
So fragile... 
How this leaf could withstand 
A Summers season 
Now a dying Autumn, 
in this changing land 

The colour turned... 
The leaves fell on me 
A falling man, 
in a changing Autumn land 

A delicate touch 
A delicate leaf 
Could be crushed 
Yet, with a soft blow 
I let an Autumn leaf go 

The leaves falling... 
From an Autumn tree 
Crisp and tan 
A falling man 
A falling leaf 
A falling me 

I will appear 
Lush and green, 
in a summer next year 
A delicate leaf 
you have seen 
you have let it go 
in a changing colourland so

TAPESTRY

 
This knot..... 
A second of your time 
This colour........ 
a thought 
 
This ongoing composition, 
your time here, 
your doing, 
your volition 
 
Live your life

Each knot, 
a thread in time 
Each colour,

This colour of thought 
The knots you sought 
This winding thread, 
easy to break 
Together they hold 
On the paths you tread 
This tapestry you unfold 
 
This emerging picture of time, 
this colour 
The fullness of your knot, 
a little less duller, 
if your thoughts, 
are sublime 
 
Winding  thread, 
this image spread 
The pattern 
knots and colour, 
on lifes' satin 
 
Gold and silver knots 
Precious seconds 
This tapestry unravelling 
your thoughts, 
colour, travelling 
 
Tapestry, 
every knot a precious second 
every colour, 
a thought 
Tapestry, 
our lives caught 
 
Shown for all, 
every thought laid 
Tapestry, 
our lives displayed 
This composition, 
our lives, 
our volition 
 
Deepening colour play 
The  richness in your time 
Tapestry,

The  things you do,

A HEARTSTONE MOON

Silently the moon rose 
from, it seemed 
The Whispering Trees 
This, I dreamed 

When all is dark and silent 
A Heartstone Moon shall rise 
It's soft light illuminating 
All you meant 

So many things change 
Never a Heartstone Moon 
New seasons to arrange 
Queens, coming soon 

Such mysterious light 
Filled a castle with wonder and delight 
So close, it seemed 
Such a beautiful thing 
Can only be a dream 

Only an Eastern pink sky, 
can fade a moon 
So perfect 
Long, will it lie 
In your heart 

A Heartstone Moon 
Gathered her stars 
Let them play 
Above, a castle 
That will see the dawn soon 

A moon is for dreams 
Stars for love 
This is why... 
Or so it seems 
A starlit sky 
Castle below 
A Heartstone Moon, 
above

GULL (PARTII)

Everyone has to learn... 
To be a gull 
One day... 
It will be your turn 

In a sky... 
Perfect too 
Upwards I flew.... 
To meet you 

For, in us all 
Is a Jonathan Livingston 
Bursting through 
Gulls flight... 
In me and in you 

It is the spirit that takes us all... 
Reaching new heights 
New skies                                                                                                                        
New flights 

We all dream 
Some chose to be.... 
Gulls on the sea 
This is me.... 

As I sit, watching the going down of the sun 
The gulls swoop and turn 
I savour the thought 
Can I become.... 
One of those... 
Who fly until the day is done 

One day.... 
I will come as a gull 
Fly over the sea 
Swoop and turn with glee 
What it is to be free 
One day it will be

A WILD ROSE

Deep in forests of green, 
beneath majestic timbers, 
in soft woody light 
wild roses are to be seen 

Achingly beautiful, 
wild roses 
The colour 
as I imagined 

The wild rose, 
wends its' way 
through the green 
The colour 
The purpose 
All knows 
All can be seen 

For where there are shadows 
A wild rose will burst free 
For it knows, 
knows it is part of me 

Petals of velvet 
Fragrant scent 
The place we met 
My heart 
All it meant 

A wild rose, 
deep in forests of green 
Shadows cannot mask 
The beauty I have seen

A SUBSTITUTE FOR THIS LONELINESS

Another charming woman is
sharing with me what I used
to share with you without guilt,
even without a sad feeling or thought:
to find a substitute for this loneliness...
for  that deep void you left inside!

The cell phone always rang
at the end of the evening;
and I was so thrilled
to hear you at the other end:
to listen to the sweet words that were
able to turn an uncaring man
into a gentler and kinder one...
and I learned how to care!

Oh,how I long to hear that voice again,
and like a dream that needed litttle dreaming:
you came knocking on my door at dawn,
and I let you in without hesitating...
so earger to touch you like nobody could;
so impatient to invent a magical world!   

Another night is coming to haunt me mercilessly
with the beautiful memories and secrets 
of two close hearts loving endessly;
what other choice do I have...if not look away,
and tell myself that you don't exist in my thoughts...
to find a substitute for this loneliness?

WINTER WALK

Crackle of frost underfoot 
This snow covered wood 
Where I met you........... 
for the first time 

Clouds of breathy air, 
your cloak of deep blue, 
you made me stop and stare 

For, among the holly, 
we  both were looking for the same thing 
This cold pale sky, 
with no hint of spring 

Your first look, 
took my breath away 
Your shy smile, 
melted me 
The sun shone......... 
On that day....... 

Woods of evergreen, 
dusted with snow 
This walk.......... 
with you 
Inner glow 

This walk..........., 
with you, 
through snow 
My heart, 
wanting you so 

Your hand, 
warmed by mine 
Your shy glance 
How those blue eyes... 
did dance! 

This love did flow, 
on this walk, 
on fresh fallen snow 
So white and clear, 
surrounded by trees of green 

Woods of evergreen, 
fresh fallen snow 
Where our love can be seen 
footprints....... 
side by side, 
long ago 

Where I first met you, 
on that winters day, 
among the holly and snow 
You had far to go, 
now together 
Our way 
seems so short so

Midnight

As I walk out into a deep sea of blue
I start to feel the new morning dew
Wanting to escape to the welcoming stars
I leave behind the pain of all scars

Swept away in this speckled blanket above
I know the stars are full of secrets and love
I ponder and share the thoughts in my mind
The dreams and secrets that I may once find

Soon I know this magical darkness will fall
And all will continue, our natural known call
So now let all found secrets be told
As will our sought out dreams unfold

Aye! Mi sweet luve; Boobrie will fly
He will fetch up the Salmon Ring
And a knot cross de land we tye
Red Caps our guard til cum de spring

Then wid haggis and drinks mi luve
Goddesses'pipes blow dem great songs
In the grey mist we skip and dance
Then like Boobrie we fly with doves

In Fantasy Land

There is a place where one can go
To laugh, to hope, to always know
There’s nothing too hard for you to stand
When you dare to come to Fantasy Land.
Oh Yes, do come to Fantasy Land.

Come soar with me to heights unknown
To ecstasies not yet full blown
To dreams, and schemes and wondrous plans
They’re here – right here in Fantasy Land.
There’s laughter here in Fantasy Land.

There is a place with song, and dance
And moonlit nights made for romance 
And all these things are at your command
If you believe in Fantasy Land.
The air is fresh in Fantasy Land.

With sunlit days and starlit skies,
And streams and lakes; palm trees so high
And oyster pearls to hold in your hand
But you must believe in Fantasy Land
The sun is here in Fantasy Land.

Imagine your troubles are melting away
With thousands of moonbeams lighting your way
Whatever you need, or want and plan
Is yours, when you come to Fantasy Land.
Enhance your mind in Fantasy Land.

For what do you have if not today?
Those sorrows and problems can fade away
For a time, at least – yes, feel the sand – on the beach
It’s here, in Fantasy Land.
Across the bridge, in Fantasy Land

Perfect Christmas Gift

In a beautiful land far across the ocean, People used to celebrate Christmas all year round, Trees along the streets adorned with flickering lights; Down the cities were malls seethed with shoppers… All in frantic, but no harm in their enjoyment of time. Grandiose buildings and churches, Stood magnificently as the music of the season played; Lanterns were hanging on walls as church bells ring, Announcing the season of birth of Christ the King. A dazzling panorama of the whole place, With the nearby sea on its serenity and calmness; The aromatic freshness and coldness of yuletide’s zephyr, Giving resplendent smiles- rhythm of iridescent glow in ones’ eyes. As people enjoyed from morning to Christmas eve Children’s laughter exuded with the gifts they received They sang joyfully with thanksgiving on caroling A herald on the season of love in a spirit of giving. Time came in the beautiful land far across the ocean, When people didn’t have any single clue of the dangers to come, A week before the season with no ominous sign, Trees on streets were washed out in an instant; A gigantic catastrophe passed by engulfing everyone Mangled and jostled into darkness where they’re hard to be found, At snap of fingers… is there another joyful Christmas time? Grandiose building and churches, Turned out into a mass grave with flickering candles; Flowers were scattered where each body laid, Mourning of their fate…a rescue they begged All praying for mercy of Christ our only Savior and King. At vantage point was a horrible scene of a ghost town, Where green trees and buildings seemed thrown in garbage cans Marred souls were wafted in stale air… Starvation and unseen love ones, they grieved. Just in time came in a devastated land across the ocean, A miracle happened in His Love Divine Sympathy and passion reigned in the heart and mind of all men; People around the world joined hand-in-hand and rebuilt ‘tis land, The most perfect Christmas gift which arrived on time.

Star Child

Constellations in my eyes;
Windows they're said to be.
Look into them now, and tell me what you see.

Calling every angel born in Hell:
"A child of the stars looking for his soul to sell.
So few are left to be birthed of Orion's Belt."

Soon they came; rulers of every layer.
Each to make their offer, 
And leave their summoning prayer. 

"Centuries of wisdom, and a mind that holds no time.
The past, present, and future are all close friends of mine,
And the Titans of the Universe I stand so close behind."

They opened all my wounds to taste how I have suffered,
Shamed me for my scars and all that I've recovered. 
Then mocked me for my weakness, known only as 'The Lover'.

"It is forbidden for us to deal a soul of the cosmos,
And you taunt us for what you wish to sell.
But we've found something in you to make us heroes down in Hell."

You are protected by forces greater than your own.
Should any God or Demon make you bow before him,
Death would surely find his throne.

It's your heart that we desire, and the love that you still hold.
Grant us this purity and surely you'll have more than this world can hold.
Let it be known that your heart is the heaviest to hold.

Surely it is quite the burden to bear.
So strange in it's nature, let us free you from it's wear.
Success will quickly follow and embrace you in it's care."

Yes! Take from me all that you desire!
No longer will I suffer in it's muck and it's mire!
Do with it what you will in the cold and the fire!

With their prize, they left with no hesitation.
Legion upon legion; Hells' United Nations.
All for their Master and all in celebration.

Lowly creatures is what they're cursed to be.
They know me by many names, they know me by many faces.
And my heart I've sold on every occasion. 

Fools! Surely they must know!
That every heart I give away
Brings me the love that stays.

SHIP OF SOULS

This dreamless sleep 
You are in so deep 
Inner space, 
free falling within 
Your place 

You travel so far 
but you go nowhere 
You must forgive me 
I am not in your space 
...........It is your race 
...........you see 


How can I explain 
what I feel 
When all I feel is pain 
I am not on an even keel 

This distance I must walk, 
for there is no time to talk 

The journey starts here, 
forget your fear 

I carry with me, 
the memories of the souls 
that I knew, 
that want to travel with me too 

This ship full of......... 
lost souls 
Trying to find their way, 
find their goals, 
keeping fear at bay 

This lonely ship, 
passing through............ 
Space 
So many souls, 
passing through 
Which one are you? 

Trying to find their way. 
Me too 
This limitless space 
Looking for your place 

Where is my way? 
Deep space 
Going far 
To distant star 
Another day 
Another place 

So far to go, 
but not far at all 
Nothing to fear, 
far, 
All is here

Waiting for you

I’m  just waiting for you
Come back to me every night

Without you life  is cloudy  sky

Waiting  to  fly  with you    
To cuddle with me  every night

I’m  just waiting for you
Without you live is boiling bubbly 
Come back to me every night

Night

During the night 
She got in the fight 
With a person named right
That might keep the light 
From returning at dawn
They both took a yawn 
Then out popped out a song

Dreams

A dream is a seed
The seed of a tree
A tree full of life
And the things you can be
Your dreams are the windows
Through which you can see
A hint of your future
And the things you will be
Each night when you sleep
You're feeding the seed
The seed of the tree
Of who you will be.

The Scholastic Mechanic!

Please allow me to introduce,
Without any pardon or excuse,
A man who needs no introduction,
To those he’s given instruction,

A man who has always helped me,
To understand extreme fallacy,
Through guidance and edification,
He spreads his extreme education,

Now he never reserves his lessons,
And always leaves his impressions,
Upon those he teaches his schtick,
For he is our scholastic mechanic,

Always he tinkers under the hood,
To find the best of what is good,
And now without further adieu,
I am proud to present to you,

A man who’s mind always races,
And affords us other head cases,
A view most definitely skewed,
By great wisdom and high I.Q.,

A man whom I proudly call my brother,
Who’s humble wit makes him tougher,
Than my boastful wages however manic,
…Our G-Man the scholastic mechanic!

I Have Half A Mind

I have half a mind,
To just let go,
Let go of notions,
Which plague me so.

What's it really matter,
If I lose or if I win,
Isn't it that I played,
That matters in the end?

I played from the heart,
And gave it all I got,
With honor and pride,
I've attained this spot.

But like I said before,
You know I have half a mind,
To just let it all go,
No more effort, no more trying...

But the other half sustains,
That which I am thankful For,
Pushing me with great strength,
I can take flight and soar.

And the higher I fly,
From efforts past spent,
The greater I espy,
The grandness of men.

Oh I have half a mind,
To give up, throw the towel in,
But I still have half a mind,
To find a way to soar again!

A Shared Dream

Chills of comfort
as smooth as skin 
grazing grey stones. 

In the next room-
technology is hard at work
churning, turning
while the guitar gently rifts. 

Harsh winds are whipping, 
we are lying 
above a pale yellow floor
Dreaming-
across a hazy tundra.

Pan and Satan

Pan and Satan.

One morning I was walking in my garden
When old Jupiter came up close to me.
And standing by his side stood fair Demeter
Who smiled at me so warm and tenderly.
She said “my son we’ve come to give our blessings
And we’ve a story we would like to tell.
Of how the great God Pan turned into Satan
And child I hope that you will listen well.

For Pan he was the god of natures beauty
And he wore no taint till Satan came along.
He’d play his pipes so gaily in the meadows
Though sometimes there was mischief in his song.

Then Satan said to pan “well I don’t give a damn
I’m going to steal your horns and make you me.
Then I’ll build a master plan and strike some fear in man
So always he will live in misery.
And that’s the way old Pan became young Satan
Yet still the old one dances deep within.
But if the two had never joined together
Then where would dwell the ugliness of sin.

Fire in the sea

I am fire in the sea, look at me.
I am fire in the sea.
I am shooting flames,
that can not be overwhelmed by the waters.
I am fire in the sea, look at me.
I am the ember 'neath the waves
can't you see?
glowing there like a starfish, let it be.
I'm so bright, could blind your eyes
don't look away.
The ocean wind blows in your hair,
what's there to say.
The wind blows,and the flames whip the air.
There's a crackle, hiss of foam,
try not to care.
If you do you might cry, so let it be.
I am fire in the sea, look at me.
there's a place 'neath the sea foam where I go,
so deep none can find me, no one knows.
It's the darkest part of my soul I do not show.
I am there beneath the waves where no one goes.
I am fire in the sea, look at me.
I am fire in the sea,
I am shooting flames that cannot be overwhelmed by the waters.
I am fire in the sea, look at me.

DANCE DANCE

I have been running to the meadows..
I tried to chase the rear shadows...
Wanting to valiantly join the show..
Magnifying beauty in a dance flow..

Melancholic is the chosen first beat..
I sway my body following my feet..
I stand; crawl and sometimes sit..
Unaware of the beginning felt heat..

When finish, all seem to marvel..
Awed and entertained applause fell..
Suddenly, there's the ringing of a bell..
Symbolizing start of another music roaring well..

Dancing dancing...
hands holding..
hips swinging..
arms bending..

dance...
dance..
dance..

THE BOOK OF KINDNESS AND LOVE

THE BOOK OF KINDNESS AND LOVE 

In the Queens' cloisters 
Lay a book 
A Book called Kindness and Love 
The greatest of them all 
For you cannot have Truth ,without kindness 
For you cannot have The Wise Way ,without love 

Such a book 
Resting on blue velvet 
Each page... 
Beaten gold 
Letters of jet 

This was a book 
More beautiful than the sky 
More magnificent then a castle 
Touched by a Heartstone 
Passed on by a hundred Queens 
A book , to learn by 

A page turned 
A new verse learned 
Pages turned for centuries 
Yet the book never ends 
Deep inside the message wends 
Kindness and Love 

I traced a verse, 
with a finger 
A strange warmth 
Whispered words 
Filled me 
Love too 
This is not magic 
It is love 
Felt by me 
Felt by you 

A Book of coloured sunsets 
Held in trust by the Queens 
On blue velvet 
A Book called Kindness and Love 
The greatest of them all 
For, you cannot have Truth, without kindness 
For, you cannot have the Wise Way, without love

Little Black Horse

little black horse, I've seen you around
little black horse, destined to terrorize the town
little black horse, you've seemed to have caught a mare
little black horse, with your long shiny hair

little black horse, why drag that mare around
death so coupled to you that she's destined to drown
fate cruel to her, to make her love
her soul tarnished and beaten, no longer white, and as pure as a dove

little black horse, do you not care at all?
crest fallen and withering, she still heeds your call
little black horse, she will die at your hand
yet her presence to you, just a mere grain of sand

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

Rescue 911

Look after Joe our mother said
We promised we would do it
She needed a break from all of us
And went out of town for a visit.

It was the spring of '93
The blizzard had ruined my place
So Sam was helping clean up my yard
Little did we know
We'd soon be red in the face!

I went down to check on Joe
He asked me to regulate his shower
I told him I'd do it later
And asked if he could wait an hour.

An hour passed, then two
We were busy with what we were doing
We forgot Joe needed a hand
And was sitting, waiting, stewing.

When I remembered to go back
I found it out of my power 
For Joe had taken matters into his own hands
And was stepping out of the shower.

You adjusted the water, I began
Oh no Miss Emily
I could not do it myself
It was that nice policeman.

Where did you find a policeman
Out here in the sticks, I cried
Knowing in my heart something was wrong.
Easy Miss Emily, I figured it out
I needed help, 
So I dialed 911.

I was horrified, afraid they would think us bad
For neglecting our uncle that fine spring day
Too busy to give him what he needed
Scared they'd take him away.

Oh no probem Jane
The man said when I called
We understand what happened today
Just tell Uncle Joe if he does it again
That out of his pocket he'll pay.

Our mother was not happy with us
But eventually thought it great fun
That Uncle Joe took matters into his own hands
And for help, dialed 911.

Memories Linger

Memories Linger
	Soft and sweet, so little and tender,
I pray again someday we’ll meet.	
Memories that seem so far away, replay in my mind again today.
Giggles sound as your tender touch is felt!
	Then and there to here and now prayers form;
bringing memories back into sight.
Soft and sweet, my little angel plays. 
Breathe it in; smells' baby soft from memories past, 
unfold and bloom!	
Until we meet again, memories forever linger of my little angel.

Souls of Men

If I should fly 
this Earth tonight
somewhere between two sleeps,
to the beating of a rythm,
in the cadence my heart keeps,
my heart will keep it's measure, 
to the faucet's broken seam,
that leaks my mind to other worlds,
and begs my soul to dream.

I dream I fish for souls of men,
sea water drops the looking glass.
My ship is coming on the tide,
I pray this vessel be my last.
The souls of men shall be my treasure,
of wich I'd fill the cargo hull,
for nothing fills my heart with pleasure
 like fishing for men's souls.

On and on and on I fish,
while the dripping cuts the seam, 
that leaks my mind to other dimensions,
beyond Crystal City's broken dreams.

So, if I fly this world tonight,
somewhere between two sleeps,
to the beating of a rythm,
in the cadence my heart keeps,
my heart will keep it's measure,
to the faucet's broken seam, 
to heal the souls tied to this world,
and free my soul that beams.

Bigger fish I'm pleased with,
but it's the smaller ones I rue.
The schools of the smaller ones 
my nets keep passing through.
Finer nets I need I'll need,
 times no cost to me it's true.
Finer nets will catch more souls,
God rest my weary crew.

On, and on, and on I fish,
sea water drops the looking glass.
My ship is sailing with the tide,
I pray this vessel be my last.

So, if I fly this Earth tonight,
somewhere between two sleeps,
to the beating of the rythm,
in the cadence my heart keeps,
my mind will see the future,
in the blinking of an eye,
when I've gathered all the lost souls,
before they even die.

Glorious rays of sun shine down.
sea water drops the looking glass.
My ship's a coming on the tide,
a rainbow high above the mast.

So, if I fly this world tonight,
somewhere between two sleeps,
to the beating of a rythm,
in the cadence my heart keeps,
my heart will keep it's measure,
to the faucets dripping seam,
and open up other dimensions,
and free my soul that beams.

The toy collector

Toy collector:

He holds the bear gently in his old wrinkled hands as he gazes into its kind beaded eyes. The toy collector sees love lined in its double stitches and his childhood in the busted toys smile.

There stitched in black thread he can hear the sound of a child laughter, happiness, and growth reviving his memory of youth, like a jolt of life to an empty vein.

The years have passed freely, almost fleeting by. He had no more time to play in grassy school yards or hide from girls wearing satin dress, he had to grow up. The boy eventually turned into a man and was forced to pack away his toys regrettably into a wooden box.

There they sat in the attic awaiting the return of their beloved friend while he aged slowly into an adult.

High school came and went, college, even marriage but unfortunately he was never blessed with his own child. No one to share in the lined pleats of his own childhood. All of this he now recognizes in the bears sandy eyes.

The toy collector hands his most prized procession to his wife, a dazed look covering his forlorn face. 

She takes his withered hand and speaks gently in his ear.
“All the memories in the world could never replace the love between a man and his bear.”

“Yes, but even the toy collector eventually grows to old and must let go.”
He replies in woe.

His thin lips force a smile as he repacks the boxes that escaped him long ago and in the early morn of the next day he patently sits alone outside for a bus to come.

The driver honks her horn and greats him with a warming smile.
“Are all of these toys for our orphanage?”

The toy collector regrettably nods.
“Things have been pretty rough but this will surly lift there sprits up.”
She confesses as she gently grabs a random box.

As she stacks them one by on into the now cluttered van his bear falls onto the pavement below.

Unable to pick it up he wrinkles his brow with great sadness.
Suddenly the passenger door opens revealing the face of a young girl and as she draws near she extends her hand and clutches the bear.

“Did you find a friend little Lou?”

His heart melts as she kisses the teddy gently then smiles.
“thank you.”
The child coos softly.

The toy collector lives in the toys he collects, but the man lives forever in the bear the child now possesses.

Pipe Dreams!

In our lives filled with lofty goals,
We may reach for much beyond our means,
And as interest is piqued and grows,
We sell wisps of notions as our pipe dreams, 

Yet while news breaches concerned factions,
Of those who would off-hand discount our plan,
You may well consider these actions,
To be the final throes of a desperate man,

Watch me rush headlong at windmills,
Listen to my brave and salient battle cries, 
For with nothing I easily afford the shills,
This puffery of pipe dreams which may sink or rise,

Take account of what may be lost,
Incredible credible reputations,
So to me the onus is tossed,
And I afford pipe dream facilitations,

But as prospect becomes tangible,
And peppered pipe dreams begin to spin,
Overt liability then manageable,
The need for my Quixotic services thin,

The writing’s on the wall distinct and clear,
Yet I long for the impossible it seems,
Where I keep the company of the grand seer,
And remain the nexus of fantastic pipe dreams.

- Before I get too much bad press here I want you to know 
the term ‘Puffery’ means to build something up with flowery language.

When lust went wrong

When lust went wrong.

Whilst strolling through the subway
One Friday afternoon
I’m all done up, and dressed to kill
As I hum a little tune.
I saw this Sheila walking by
As cool as she could be
And I told meself, to know this dame
Would, really pleasure me
She looked at me all sexily
And I thought “that’s me, I’m in”
Well I could scarcely believe me luck
Me mind was bent on sin.

I took her to some dank motel
Invested in some booze
I’d make her just a little drunk
All hanging kind of loose
I seduced her with some sleazy words
And told her of me love
And how she’d won my heart, and all
I swore by God above!
I’d paid a little money down
To rent this little room
I was hoping that this pretty lass
Would lift away me gloom.

We smooched and kissed and carried on
Me mind all filled with glee
I laid beside her on that bed
Awaiting ecstasy.
Then all at once the sun was up
It was a brand new day
I’m lying there all by meself
I felt a grim dismay!!
No wonder, cause me bloody watch
And all me clothes were gone
I held my throbbing head in hands
And wondered what went wrong.


This is fiction, I am glad to say

Empty castle

Silence seems my only comfort,
a loner in this world I stand
going only where i'm welcome
doing only what I can
to make my life lived
spent with meaning
still thoughts of caution
fear the feeling
of knowing I have been undone.

If ever I should lose myself
may it not be to isolation
but may it be to who you are
a gift given,and I have taken.
Let your heartbeat hammer
till the fall
of these cruel and coldstone
castle wall's
surrounding me at every turn
a lonely lesson life to learn.

im responsible for what I've done
none else should take the blame
but though i be accountible
may guilt not be all that remains
but also your welcoming heart
that tells me of a latter time
when these walls are nothing
but a remnant
of a lone kings reighn,
until his queen ascended
and made what was an empty space
a home at heart, a loving place.

Red Beard

Red Beard laughed at this lad
Stumbled on the wrong ship he had

Stowing away on a pirate vessel 
Turned himself in not even a wrestle

Stout young lad must be at least ten
He wasn’t sure of the trouble he was in

To the plank cast him aside!
Then the boys knees buckled….he cried

Red Beard yanked him up and stared deep
Some use of this boy, if I want to keep

To the crew or to the sea? Red Beard thought
A pupil to over see if well taught

“Take him below!” are his orders
“Food and water in my quarters”

The boy moved quickly at the thought of food
Take his mind off of his saddened mood

A feast laid before his weary eyes
Hot bread and large chicken thighs

Warm milk and cool fresh water too was in store
He ate and ate till he couldn’t anymore

It was eve before the Captain appeared
The boy was asleep his mind without fear.

Into his arms the boy went
Carried to the cot for his rent

An orphan too, was this pirate knave
Maybe this child he could save

Schooling was what first struck his mind
A great teacher was hard to find

Sailing and piracy was all he knew
“I want more for this lad. A start anew.”

…..A rapping came to the cabin door
Urgent business he had to make sure

“What is it?” Bellowed a voice
“A British flag and jack a hoist!”

A war galleon was on the horizon 
A battle was on the rising

Empty (Lyrical Ballad)

The flame that I once held
The one that shone bright
Within the ground will meld
On this merciless cold night

The empty night
Will flood with rain
Tonight I fight
Just to stay sane

Dimensions of pain
Will fill the sky
Within this rain
Hear my feint cry

The mistress will fade
The skies will cry
Diamond to jade
Ambition to die

Within that lost soul
Resides a key
Within her
I find me

It hurts

Girl it hurts that I will one time brake up with you
And you will love another man too
You will give him that smile
The one you gave me every while
Your love will flow like the Nile
with him you will go an extra mile.

He will touch
He will smooch
give him that look u gave me
whenever I made sweet love to thee.

He will walk you
To the park just you two
He will hold your hands
Like we did hold hands
when your hands contact
you will give him that cool eye contact
like you did to me.

It hurts that all this will happen
But I'm not asking you back its not gonna happen
You decided to leave
for you strongly believe
we were not meant to be
You might be wrong baby
For what we had all along
was never at all wrong.

yes my heart is fragile and broken
for my love for you is never mistaken
you said i will not see you again
i am in pain
going insane
to lose this love
i will never have.

ATTITUDE

A lazy cartoon Saturday
Me and my sister in the house
When mom came in and said,
"Go outside and play Mighty Mouse"

Mighty Mouse was a Super Hero
In spite of his small size
He had untold strength and power
Sis said, "And don't forget he flys!"

The power of imagination
Formed over years being outdoors
Wanted super strength and vision
I would play and long for more

Oh, in times of great conflict
When danger would surround
Everything seemed hopeless
No help could be found
When you needed a Super Hero
And you didn't know what to do
Just look up and cry out for help
The Super Hero would come to you

One night while I was dreaming
Heard a voice say I'm Atti Ant, dude
I'm here to offer you super power
Through a force called "Attitude!"

Attitude is not a super power 
How lame a Super Hero is Atti Ant
Strength only in determination
And avoid sayings like, "No I can't"?

"Just try it" said the super bug
And so quickly you will see 
If you concentrate on Attitude
There's no limit to what you'll be

It didn't happen immediately
But over time I decided to try
I discovered the power in "Attitude"
This Super Hero within can fly

Oh, in times of great conflict
When great danger surrounds
Everything seeming hopeless
There's no help to be found
When you need a Super Hero
And you don't know what to do
Look within and find "Attitude"
The Super Hero is there in you!

*Geared for older children but suitable for all

A PARK BENCH

The world spinning round 
A park bench 
The wind... 
The only sound 
Trees, 
Red and gold 
Tumbling leaves 

How a world can stop 
Turn by turn... 
Park bench 
Life burning by 
Sit through the day 
Passing play... 
Park bench 
Sometimes... 
It's the only way

LAST NIGHT

Last night I saw you there
You stood out in the crowd
Memories of what we had
The feelings were so loud
Remember me touching you
The thought will never fade
And I imagined..

It was our first time
Eyes met, stars aligned 
We danced, life rhymed
Made love, so sublime

I got busy chasing success
The rat race was pulling me
No longer saw what was best
Blinded by greed and money
And so subtly, I just let you go
Traded love, lost my song
Of sweet memories when..

It was our first time
Eyes met, stars aligned
We danced, life rhymed
Made love, so sublime

God knows I need a change
Something's stirring in the air
Since I saw you the other night
Seems I sense you everywhere 
What if lightning struck twice
What if magic could really be
What if we could start over
Oh Baby, please tell me..

This could be our first time
Where eyes meet, stars align 
And we dance, life rhymes
Making love, so sublime

THE TREE OF EDEN

THE TREE OF EDEN

I love to see you o tempting tree
How i wish you are still seen and free
Flourishing with juicy fruit; lovely
Now you are all alone and lonely

O Eden fruit cherished from the tree
I so much admire your feel
And want to devote my time to your peel
So soft like pomegranate with fleshy skin

What a rare thing not well known
A tree filled fruit of wise and great policies
The skin remind me of the evening moon
But it’s jealously protected from doom

Black Demon

Black Demon.

The old black Demon's back again
He's pounding on my soul
He's prodding, always prodding me
This be his earthly role
The hordes of Hell move into me
With their whips and masks of steel
Invading me they rip my flesh
And break into my will.

I look into this Demons eyes
Though my body quavers some
As fear be powerful in my mind
I know what must be done
Oh no I will not falter
For now be courage time
That coward that resides in me
He be my cursed crime.

He turns his back, the bounder's gone
I've beat his hide again
If you look your demons in the eye
Their manner grows more tame.
But he'll be back on some tomorrow
He's the strongest force I know
He's my shadow and he's telling me
To move into the flow.

CONQUERING DIVISIONS

I am not made a full blown beauty..
Nor I live a life of purity; charity & piety..
All I like to do is to live with identity..
Not of being a witty but a life of humility..

I tried to be a more social person..
Cracking out the shell I have put up..
Breaking from my own weakness..
Doing best in my found strengths..

I have craved to reach out to people..
Widening my horizon, increasing my knowledge and awareness..
Learning to acknowledge fellow human beings..
Regardless of who they are and where they from..

They said: "I must not do this as it is dangerous.."
but I stand to what I know: "Inside all human beings is the reflection of God.."
I give due and equal chance..
As my God have freely given me opportunities too..

We people are living in same earth..
Different are we because of status, faith or race..
Let not this be the reason for us to be divided..
Rather we must come in unison conquering divisions..

A KINGS' LIBRARY

One cannot leave the books.. 
The precious books.. 
Not to be lost in the mists of magic 
For, a book unopened... 
Is a heart with no love 

Castle Heartstones' library, 
was taken aboard 
Before Tapestry 
Before Sword 

Enchanted things happen, 
in a Kings' Library 
For, books are alive 
A book will find you 

The books travelled through corridors 
For, books must find their way to you 
From a Kings' Library, 
to your heart 
For, words have more than one meaning too 

Books of the seasons 
Such colour glowing, 
amongst the pages 
Queens' pride showing 

Books of stars 
and sunbright 
Above all 
The book of The Wise Ways 
In a Kings' Library 
for all to see

PAPER CLIP SOLILOQUY

      Oh Paper Clip, Dear Paper Clip
      let me always sing your praises!

      You keep my pages held tight
      without the violence of stapling
      and yet your grip is so gentle as
      to release a sheet without a blemish.

      When the project in your care concludes
      you go back into the desk desk drawer
      with nary a complaint or a quibble
      and fall back into the stiff routine
      of anticipating the next chance
      to make yourself useful.

      You are so loyal and understanding
      that even when I ask you to be
      a hanger of christmas ornaments
      you immediately bend to the task.

      You don't even mind
      when I straighten you out
      and use you like a toothpick.

      You remain the consummate aide
      through both thick reams and thin.

      You have won my heart
      you little metallic angel
      and if Mother approves
      I have every intention
      of making you an honest binder.

Crystal Brook

Crystal Brooke.

Crystal Brooke was beautiful
She smiled like the morning sun
With eyes of blue, and velvet hair
And such a sense of fun
Everyone did love her so
This sweet unselfish girl
Just one look into here beauty
Could set men’s hearts a whirl.

She dreamed that one day she would be
A star of great repute
And that she had a lot of talent
There was none who would refute
One day a mogul passing by
Did hear this lady sing
He made of her a singing star
And fame to her did bring.

At first this life was wonderful
Oh, she had everything
And millions paid out all their doe
Just to hear the lady sing
Then as her fame spread far and wide
Her ego it did grow
And then the booze and drugs took hold
And took away her glow.

Her life became quite miserable
Her manner became quite sour
All true beauty faded then
As she lost all her power
Then one day she could take no more
And so she took her life
Living in a goldfish bowl
Had caused her too much strife.

Always Remember Tooth Paste

Tears for fears.
Tears throughout the years.
Tears that fallen from my peers.
A tear so sincere that will shred us from this dreadful fear.
That someday we all will die.
But have u gotten a slice of that pie.
A pie so delicious u can almost taste.
That u cant let it go to waste.
Maybe next time I'll remember tooth paste.

WHEN WOOD IS NOT AS IT SEEMS

I grasped the staff
That the old man had given to me

If I had only looked

At the tattered cloak

More closely

 

I could have seen

The deep spun blue

The silver stars

That had faded

Under a million morning suns

and travels under canopies of green

 

I felt the wood grow

It knew the way

The way of everything

Of magic

Of nature

Everything to know

 

I held the staff

In the morning light

It was then that i saw

Upon the wood

That chance meetings are now understood

The deep spun blue wool and silver stars

Of his cloak and our coverings

That began the journey

That handed over to me

The journey

Upon the wood

The letters could be seen

“the love of all things”

   

I knew I would meet him again

When it was my turn

To hand over the staff

When I finished my journey

Of a million morning suns

Under canopies of richest green

With my Faerie Moondust Queen

 

The staff to guide me too

The Moondust

To love me

When wood….

Is not as it seems

This I learnt

Yet, the Moondust

With her wisdom

Always knew

For the love of you

If only I could make you see
that you mean so much more to me,
a priceless gift, wrapped in a smile,
the dream that makes my day worthwhile,
undoubted proof there is a God,
the joy that not all hope is gone.
To me you are that piece of mind,
that gives the world such sweet reply
that although love is sometimes lost,
its remnants left will never die-

How more could I express my love
for words are but the breath in me
what more can I, a man still do
except to give what's left of me . . .
for lips can flatter all too well
and sing the praise of many things
but you are in a different class
to you . . . . . I give my everything!

If ever I do fail to prove
my strong and constant love for you
then never have I lived a day
or ever took a breath anew.

RIDE WITH ME

Ride with me

To feel you close

Warm breath on my neck

 

Ride with me

Upon a horse

To sunsets

Red and gold

 

Ride with me

Through stars

Journeys’ made

Our love

Never to fade

 

Ride with me

My Aquila

Upon a horse

To soft dawn light

Escaping the night

 

Ride with me

For, you fly

In my heart

Upon golden wings

IN THE YEAR 3000

IN THE YEAR 3000
A new millennium I should say
You may ask is this worth to pray?
Sometimes I will say yes and nay
All because we don’t know the day

If we are not around should our children hope?
Or leave them to superstition as a cloak?
Is a question we should answer you and I both
With this millennium the next may not abode

Could I ever what holds next predict?
When all we know and have deplete
Is that millennium ever going to be?
Frankly and fact this we shouldn’t tease

Dreaming Of Me

He's out there somewhere,
Waiting for me just like I'm waiting for him.
Feeling the same things I am feeling right now,
thinking there may never be an end to the loneliness,
The longing,
The void that grows with each passing minute.
He's out there,
Somewhere,
Dreaming of me.

Souless Society

Yeah Im living in a souless society, 
My people keep doing each other wrong so much its hard to get right with me, 
Its so dark with alcoholic violence that I can no longer see the light in me, 
Survival of the fittest I am no longer because there remains almost no fight in me,
 I struggle with death around one in all forms of variety, 
I am so low at times that there can be no one high as me, 
A lot of non-sense for my body I keep buying me, 
at the same time my own people keep fighting me, 
but its time I just say "**** it" 
and kick all that *****to the curve away in the bucket, 
I hate the truth so much that I start to love it, 
Creating a mind full of knowledge gold, a mind full of many nuggets, 
Now its time I face my own truth even if my own people lie to me, 
I can and I will overcome this souless price that seems too pricey, 
**** all that bull-*****I will rise out my own souless society

Zanaku, grey wolf.

He walks at night,
It sleeps by day,
Basking in the moonlight,
Or so they say,
With the form of a wolf,
And the soul of a man,
With a tale that can move,
And a mind that can plan,
With a coat of gray hair,
And eyes always crying,
People seem to care,
People are always lying,
He howls at the moon,
So desolate and sad,
Good times go too soon,
As did all that he had,
Living in the woods,
So far from redemption,
Plagued by dark thoughts,
Too many to mention,
The gray wolf walks alone,
Carrying his past,
All that he called his own,
Found it hard to last,
Staring at the clouds,
And standing in their rain,
Find no relief from his constant pain,
Such a doleful look,
Calls on the heart to bleed,
Life gave and then it took,
All that he came to need,
So he rises to go,
Lonely, though no one cares,
As if they didn't know,
Lone wolves don't come in pairs.

SUNSET MEADOW

Shadows deep and long
Crept across sunset meadow

I dreamed of you

In my heart

Where you did belong

 

Pink and soft grey

Sunset meadow

Gone for another day

 

Shadows, deep and long

Crept across my heart

I lost you

To the night

 

Pinks and greys

Faded to blue

In to the night

Across sunset meadow

A castle

Lit by star and faerie light

Began to glow

 

I dreamed of you

In a sunset meadow

Lost too

In its’ glow

THE BRIDGE OF THE MORNING STAR

To rest awhile

In my Moondust’s arms

In a meadow of flowers

A shady tree

Watching her smile

 

I wove star flowers

In to her hair

She wove me into her heart

Never such love, so rare

Could be

In a meadow of flowers

 

We talked and sang

Until the sun set low

Fires lit, in reds and golds

Of loves’ glow

We slept

In blue wool

and silver stars

Amongst its’ folds

 

The first bird called to me

I looked up

Saw the first morning star

Shining steadily

 

Across the meadow

Above the trees

The early light

Caught the flash

Of the birds’ wing in flight

 

I woke my Moondust

Across the meadow

Is the way

The bird showed me

In its’ flight

Guiding us today

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We walked through

The flowers of the meadow

Moondusts’ horse followed behind

In that early sunglow

 

The rush of water could be heard from afar

The meadow ended too soon

The stream could be soon

Upon it…..

The Bridge of the Morning Star

 

Of ancient oak tree

Carved with magical hands

Its’ trusses carved with birds

On each rail, silver stars were inlaid 

A beautiful canopy of redwood

Completed this crossing

Carved on it, ancient words

“The Morning Star”

 

The bridge

of The Morning Star

As soon as the sun rose

Like The Morning Star

The bridge faded too

In the coming of daylight

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 TALE OF A FOREST LEAF

On a summer day
The Queen and her Faeries
Went out to play
Amongst the whispering trees

So much joy to be found
Amongst the Whispering Trees
To hear bird sound
The red squirrels chattering in the canopies

All the trees were in full leaf
So many different shades of deepest richest green
With a blue sky above
Golden sun
A forest, filled with love
The beauty to be seen

Forest Faeries could be heard up high
Amongst the green leaves
Watching summer clouds passing by

They called down to a Summer Queen
Who was walking down below
“We have special gift for a King”
“Please accept this beautiful thing”
“From all of us so”

A beautiful leaf fluttered down
Greens and golds
Reds too
A beautiful leaf
In the shape of a heart, true

“A leaf”
“A leaf”
They called from above
“For a Kings’ cloak”
A leaf that would never die
Its’ colours would match seasons
A leaf from the forest faeries
Who live in trees, so high

The Summer Queen
Did know
Blessed all around
The leaf, she took
For a leaf of deepest, richest colour
Was perfect for a Kings’cloak
Tonight she would sew
a surprise

The kings’ cloak was called for
A Summer Queen sewed on the leaf
A King, the proudly wore
For, it shone with love
A gift from the Forest Faeries
and Whispering Trees

When the Earthen King died
The Summer Queen took
The very leaf, from his side
Blew on it softly
A sweet westerly breeze
Returned the leaf
To the whispering trees

A leaf of deepest richest green
mourned a King
The tears of the Summer Queen
Love and magic
Fulfilling
The Whispering Trees
Took the king,
and made him part of everything

In my last life

InMy last life

I was a man of untold rage 
My hatred reached into old age
Someone was I, with so much power
Whose life had made him dark and sour
I was so hated and despised
And never cared for those who died
For I was he who sent them there
I tortured them into despair.

Everywhere I went was fear
I was a monster, this was clear
And everyone who crossed my path
They’d never smile, they’d never laugh
Oh, they just froze at the sight of me
Under my rule no one was free
I was the ruler of a land
A hated man, though big and grand.

Then on my death-bed I did see
The truth of the evil that was me
I feared that hell would be my lot
Where I would burn, my soul would rot
And vowed that in my life to come
I would recognize the sum
Of everything that’s beautiful
And I would be no longer cruel.

THAT EVIL CAN SEEP

Across the bridge

In to the depths

Of the other side

I felt the faint prickle

Of something

Not alive

 

Moondust felt it too

Of cold winds

Tattered cloaks 

Blowing through

 

Moondusts’ horse

Whose name is known only to her

Shivered and snorted

The rising cold air

 

Let us leave this place

My longbow unsheathed

Arrows of brown and gold

At the ready

Moondust magic

The light wreathed

 

I felt it deep

Moondust too

That evil can seep

In to beauty

And stain it in darkened hues

 

As one

Evil cannot prevail

For love

Beauty and magic

Stars

Will never fail

It cannot divide

What lies within

Will never hide

It bursts forth

Soft amethyst light

Washing away

The stain of the night

Yellow moon sea

How startling the clarity,

Above Yellow Moon Sea
 
Deepest blue,

Above Yellow Moon Sea
 
A moons' gentle caress
On a sea, so still
Perfect reflections

New directions
 
Somethings are always free
Love

On the vastness inside of me
I looked for you
On Yellow Moon Sea
 
On the vastness inside of me
I looked for you
On Yellow Moon Sea
 
Gentle loving from me

Yet, I cannot stay

Such intensity

THE POWER OF PURPLE

       not yet a poet laureate?

Myrtle! I say, (she's a tree of lowly lineage,)
unwind your limbs from the lordly pine.  I saved
him from the builder's saw, the gaping yaw
of someone's fire.  I claim this stalwart symbol mine 
as traveling mate, our tandem destiny of 
the arbor-trary kind absolved from ordinary fate.
Yet, if I, or my soldier tree should fall, I call 
on the power of St. Michael's sword, his purple
yew, which downed the devil in a few.  We, 
who are to the lavender born, unlike the myrtle
of low born scorn -- Prince of angels, mighty 
tree, I take my holding power from thee. One eye 
cocked toward immortality, I remain to make 
the odd, little poem, or narratives a' la Uncle 
Remus, forever hoping to be famous.

The man

In my mind there lives a man
who tries and tries the best he can
but in the end he's left alone
an added failure and nowhere's home

Another failure but at no cost
for this man is already lost
just another goal that will not be met
something this man will not forget

and in this man there lives a beast
and at times failed it shows it's teeth
and no one, not the man nor me
can tell you where this beast will be

and now the beast has come again
another failure has summoned him
this time though it won't be tamed
the man has lost, the beast will stay

in my mind there lives a beast
who doesn't try, not the least
and in the end he lives alone
in my mind, his new home.

Banshee Revenge

The banshee’s wails alarm the house,
Foretelling Father’s death;
They do not know he was the beast,
The man who ravished Beth. 

She took her life, then couldn’t rest:
A creature without friend.
She’s waited for this day to come,
And now predicts his end.

He sees her face and cries in fear;
She howls, her curses vile.
He leaves the earth to meet his judge;
She leaves it with a smile.

Freddy the Fly

Dapper Freddy,
the house fly
and this is a fly
not prone to lie

he does buzz around
at breakneck speed
he wears his crown
a fly-king,  indeed

a cinch for him
to ceiling walk
or climb up walls
he can even fly-talk!!

yes Freddy is cool,
he really is
just passed my eyes
he sure did wiz

well Freddy was in search
of a Mrs. Freddy Fly
tired of being a bachelor
I don't know why

he did woo his share
of lovely gnats
everytime one went by
he'd remove his hats

Freddy was also brave,
fearing not insect spray
nor swift used swatter
the more he was hunted
the more his temperature got hotter

one day Freddy will likely die
perhaps his fly-body landing 
on a window sill
seems the place they end up
more oft than not
even without an insect spray shot

so go on your merry way for now,
Freddy Fly, my dear little fly-friend
just stay away from my food
or meet your Freddy Fly end!!

A song about my cat

My cat went a roaming to find a new home.
Sing kitty,sing katty,sing Oh!
This cat was so clever he had his own comb.
Look up,now look down,stone the crows!

He went into the neighbours' and drank all their milk.
Sing,fridge raiding kitties.No,No!
Then he laid himself down on a piece of fine silk.
Sing,what the dickens,my lovely pillow!

He went to the butcher and ate all the steak.
Sing greedy,he's ruined my flow.
Then he went to the hairdresser for a shampoo.
Where else can a puttitat go?

He had no plastic,no money,no cheque!
Sing,cheater,sing creature,sing woe.
She sent for a Copper who paid the cat's bill.
And so  my puss came out all aglow.

Now my cat was glossy and plump and refreshed.
Sing:fancy,it all goes to show.
So he came home and said this place is best.
And he picked up his cello and bow.

He scraped some Sibelius and also some Grieg.
Sing: Northern lights can always glow.
But,he looked so self satisfied,I felt annoyed....
One should not let one's narcissism show.

But he was so handsome,I was glad he came home.
Sing,grateful,sing katefull,sing Ho!
And I hope he will never again want to roam.
Sing glory.sing story;Sing So!

IN MY HEART IT LAY

In the blink of an eye 

Faerie flight

Moondust took me back

Across the night

To our fire in the forest of richest green

 

I knew the meanings

In my heart it lay

Starry trails

Burst forth

I knew the way

 

In dreams too

Waters flowed

Waters that swirled

It was time

To journey through

To the dark blue world

 

I carry with me

My tower of light

Burning bright

Burning star

For all to see

I have conquered the night

Anwnn

Coming from the misty lake Lough Leane
Came a beautiful maiden of the name of Niamh
Upon a mare, for she is not from the world of man
A seraphic princess from Anwnn
Upon the shores she claimed around his kin
"I have came for Oisin son of Finn"
"Maiden you come to me so alluringly 
I am he, if we marry for all eternity!"

And so he rode upon her horse to the secrets of Anwnn
For he and she, they'd be happy for all eternity 

Come with me to Anwnn
I am she, your queen Niamh
I have come for you Oisin, son of Finn
Don't leave me or you'll see

THE COLOURS OF MY HEART

The colours of a sunset
Ran through my heart
Orange, gold and red
 
Shades of indigo
Became a midnight blue
The glorious night
The moon glow
 
Moonbeams
Shaped white clouds,
in to silver streams
 
The colours of the night
Ran through my heart
Silver and midnight blue
 
A blush in the east
As stars fade
Different colours returned
The shades of the heart
These things I learned

Powder Monkey

The noose is a nightmare for any seafaring man
Especially those who thrive the best they can

Danger lurks on the waves like a mugger in the shadows
The only concern is the prize and the gallows

For the young pressed into service have two labors
Cabin boy or powder monkey are their favors

A fair share for those who survived
Though not to many lived to enjoy the ride

Mostly master gunners would employ the young ones
For the task of loader and powder runs

A grizzly sight to any mother of today
Blood spattered, powder covered, limbs severed portray 

I dare say I met one intact and conscious 
He was rude and quite audacious 

No name had he just an X above the knee
His mark given by Captain of the Breeze

A sloop of war in Caribbean was this
Massacred whole crews drunk as piss

The boys attitude so moved my heart
That I had to set him free from his part

Before I saw him he was the only one left to be hanged
Port Royals mob clawed and fanged 

I set to watch when I saw how young he was
I had to do something for his cause

I bid the court give me custody immediately 
They awaited the response from the Admiralty

The response was yes almost to late
For the executioner just removed the safety plank

He kicked and cried for a moment then released
With the knife of the kings lease

A bruise found its way around his neck as a reminder
For a life against the grinder

I sailed him back to London to learn a trade 
And go to school for a decade

I later named him after my name kidd
Later to be known as William Kidd

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

The forest of grief

The forest of grief:

At night I can hear the pain filled screams coming from the forest of grief. Longing, despair, and terror seeps in from the thick tree line into my bedroom window.

Their inhuman wails send chills down the nap of my neck rendering me unable to move. 

“What horrible events accrued inside this desolate place?”

No vegetation, growth, or life exist.
Only the suffering from distant pasts.
Time itself seems to be halted by the walls of the dense forest that shelter its ghostly inhabitants.

“Do they know death?
Do they know of the life they once led or can they even hear their own horror filled cries?

I do, I feel every heart breaking emotion as I lay in wait for dawn to break.”

There is no rest for them or me, the lonely women who tends the forest of grief.

Failure of The Ages

My express wish is to walk around the earth twice
I see myself only as a cloud
The real sense of direction is spiritual
My essence is only spared by my humility
This is the dogma of life
I ask you,  Do you understand the complicated nature of express reaction ?
I for one feel the need to only go to where I am loved 
Am I loved by the masses?
This is my plight
I am an external vision
The respect I command is extraordinary
This may be my only chance
I breathe
I spit
I try to drive
Oh well so goes life
The failure of it is immense, it makes me feel inadequate
Is this what they mean by age versus companion?
I am what I perceive

The end of the beginning

When you stop and think

When you feel all is lost

and couldn’t get much worse

Go back

To what you had

In the beginning

Of trees, Faeries and magic

The chapters

The verse

 

It is always with you

Some days harder to find

To unlock the secrets

Of love

Of imagination

From your mind

 

So much you have

and learnt

From the wise ways

To battles won

Of castles

Spires touching the sky

Forests of green

So much you have

So much you have seen

 

Take with you too

All of these things

These writings

Are merely, the reflection 

Of you

 

I leave you now

With chapters and verse

Of stars and destinies

That the paths you travel

You are never alone

For,  in your heart

You carry the Heartstone

A sea of dreams

We all find a place...

The one space....

Where no one else can go,

Deep in our dreams so

 

A sea of dreams,

Where the light....

Golden glow,

We can let go

 

A sea of dreams,

Painted skies

The sunlight,

Created for you

For what lies in the heart...

Can only be true

 

Take your self there...

You owe it to your self

A sea of dreams,

To a place you know where

 

The birds fly by,

In a world known only to you

In a sea of dreams

Pain and hurt do not exist,

Only in the world you haven't missed

 

A bird, came in to sight...

Bursting free...

In to the light

This is you....

Dreaming right

 

Everything in sight...

On a sea of dreams

You can let it all go

Everything is not as it seems...

Merely ways...

To stop a bird...

Bursting free,

In to the light

Visions of Another Kind

     As our ship leaves
the harbor 
       for
       parts 
       unknown
our eyes search the skies for
   a sign 
Visions of the past 
    give way to visions of another kind
  Don't you realize what has happened?
  The old verities 
         are 
         now 
glowing embers
  in a room full of surprises
Like a "jack in the box" happiness
suddenly springs forth
where sadness used to hole sway 
The great masters of reality
will have their say!
Isn't it time you watched the earth revolve?
As it spins our hopes grow 
and are on the verge of being fuflilled 
          Visions of another kind
will take us 
   to new, unimagined 
heights, leave us breathless
on the shore 
    as wave after wave 
strikes the sand 
leaving their imprint 
   on our shores

AWAKE THEM, LOVE

I have fallen crazy madly deeply in love..
How many times I tried but failed..
How many times I take risks yet I was wronged..
So, I did cry and feel so hurt...

Whispered by my mind: "stop & take care"
this Stubborn heart rejects and says: "find your pair"..
I must stand follow a strong will..
Not round up nor down like a wheel..

Undefinable; unexplainable love..
how you been?
Where have you been?
share to me not be trashed in bin..

a lot needs and wants you..
yet few shows a genuine you..
soothers and enlighteners of blues..
shoving all worries and woes..

nowadays, in world full of gloom
won't you mind to flourish and bloom?
spring out to everyone's aura and mood..
pleading you to cure all wounds..

She held handful of stars

These eyes bright 
Hair the colour of night 
Queen of starlight 

She held a handful of stars 
She tossed them far 
Scattering through, 
the midnight sky 

The star that landed on me.......... 
Was my destiny 
For this star, 
choose to be.............. 
the star for me 

Scattering through, 
billions of stars 
There is one waiting for you 

Glittering glow, 
from my chosen star so 
Scattered throught the blackest night 
This one, I won't let go 

This star 
So bright 
It came so far you see............. 
yes bright 
Hair the colour of night 

She held a handful of stars 
She held one for me 
The star she held................ 
Was my destiny 

One for me........ 
One for you........ 
Travelling too........ 
Such stars are meant to be.......... 

These eyes bright 
Hair the colour of night

THE STAIN OF THE NIGHT

They came at night

Just before dawn

Moondust awoke

I heard the wraiths’ shrieking cries

Faeries’ magic to invoke

Longbow drawn

 

I kissed my Moondust

Then back to back

We waited for the onslaught

A Faerie Queen ready

My longbow ready 

The battle to be fought

                        

Soft amethyst light

Surrounded us

The love within

Will conquer the stain of the night

 

So it was, that evil

Tried to take

What was never theirs

That love can never break

Of spells that spill

 

The flashing fire

Amethyst light

Together we stood

And banished the night

 

Time and time again

They came

They could never win

Fighting as one

Loving as one

Of Faerie magic

Arrows brown and gold

What lies within

Will never hide

It burst forth

Soft amethyst light

Washing away

The stain of the night

CHANCE MEETINGS

I spied an old man along the way

With a tattered cloak

He called to me

Where are you today?

 

I looked upon him

and smiled

I am with Moondust

Of soft glowings

Of days that grow dim

Of fires that glow

and of journeys to know

 

He offered  to me

Something precious to him

 A wooden staff

and said….

Those who go in love,

are always free

 

Such beautiful wood

Handsomely carved

I did not understand the gift

The writings upon it

Nor understood

 

What can I give?

He replied

You already did

In small important ways

Those who go in love,

are always free

 

I clasped his shoulder

and shook his hand

Looked into his eyes

We will meet again

In a far off land

A man  in his tattered cloak

Smiled gently ,

and said his goodbyes

THE LOST JEWEL

Amongst the filthy rags
Of the wraiths’ fleeing

What they left behind

A soft glowing could be seen

 

A lost Shadowfire

Whose could it be?

What does it mean?

Lost jewel in the forest of green

That wraiths had in their possession

Something of extraordinary beauty

 

Piercing cry from the eagle above

I looked upward

And knew

What I had in my hand

Must be given

The eagle turned to the west

It  had led me here

I felt in my heart

What was true

What was best

That Moondust and I

Must carry the Shadowfire

To a new land


Details | Ballad | |

WHAT WAS MADE IN THE STARS

You cannot break
What was made in the stars

This I knew

Moondust too

That we have a choice

We can leave this place

Listen to the inner voice

Find the way

To stars

To magic

To nature

Most of all

Love

Heartstone Christmas

A special time
When the sun shone bright
In clear winter light
 
Robin Redbreasts
Darted back and forth
Singing gaily
The splash of red
Upon the snow
As they were being fed
 
In a magical world
Belonging to you and me
Christmas , came
In our hearts
The joy of giving
Beneath the tree
 
In a castle
To the right of the Winding Stair
A great tree grew
A mighty fir
 
In soft winter light
The candles  lit
Upon a tree
Faerie light
 
Golden feathers from Heartstone Eagles
Were put on the tree
Ribbons and lace from the Queens
Glowing berries from the Kings
 
A living tree
Filled with colour
Decorated with love
For you
For me
 
In a magical world
Under a tree
Christmas came
In soft winter light
Kings and Queens
Gave generously
 
Gifts of love
Colour
Of tranquillity
Passed on through
A kiss
A touch
Under a tree
 
Faeries flew
Trees, whispered
A castle, lit
The love felt, too
 
A single touch
Passing
You give your self
To everyone
They share all of you
As they share too
Forever lasting
 
This is a Heartstone Christmas
For what is given
Is love
Colour
Tranquillity
Under a tree
 
There is no greater gift
Then giving all of you
The light inside glowed
You wanted this,
and it showed
 
I want to share
A Heartstone Christmas
With you
Hold your hand
See the Northern Lights
Faeries too
 
For a Christmas at Heartstone
Is a time for love
A time to be free
Where the heart knows
Of everything
For it shows
In you

AT THE WATERS' EDGE

Soft tinkle of the stream

Took me from my doze

I cupped the precious water

Drank deeply

In its’ midst

I spied a gleam

 

Silvery stars

Shimmered below the waters’ surface

Such liquidity

In water

Running free

 

I put my face in to the stream

The stars I could see

In another world

In another dream

 

At the waters’ edge

Stars flowed in

Stars flowed out

Gentle tide

That took me

In liquidity

To places I could never hide


Details | Ballad | |

TO SEE A STAR

A day spent at the stream

With Moondust

Infinities

And beyond

We will come back to the stream

 

To see a star

In its’ liquidity

In its’ depths

Of my heart

With Moondust

By the stream

 

Starry glimpses

Of futures’ laid

To travel

In many ways

Through streams

Through dreams

That can never fade

 

With the night….

The letters began to gleam

Upon the staff

What could it mean?

The way, home?

Could this be right?

 

I grasped the staff

Felt its’ mesmerizing power

And pointed to the stars

Numbers began to fall

In my heart

With startling rapidity

  

I remembered

When I launched an arrow

Of gold and brown

To the stars I felt its’ flight

The very same as on this night

 

High in the night sky

I saw

I felt

An eagle

With stars for wings

Such elation

That only I

Could see that constellation

 

The arc 

To travel

In my heart

In a night sky

To see

My constellation

See it fly

A usted roba mi corazón usted que no saldré
Mis sistemas son van mientras que emprendemos

En mi mente usted está allí toda la hora

GOD BURSTS EVERYWHERE

My eyes has never perceive Him
Yet, He magnifies all that I perceive
My nose has never smelled Him
Yet, each scent lingers and fills

My skin has never feel Him
Yet in numerous ways He touch me
My ears has never hear Him
Yet all His words a soothing melody 

Inside the home..
On every four corners
In a school, shops...
On every building

Out from nowhere
Out of the blue
Through every season
Through every person

Your presence endears
Your presence encourages
Your presence an essence
Oh God, You burst everywhere!

PLUNGE IN BETWEEN

this past days, I can not write..
I feel something isn't right...
They said: "I'm bright"..
I said: "midway, I'm alright"...

I am in a deep thought..
Who could have sought..
I wish a bias thinking, they brought..
Oftentimes, lurks fear and doubt..

kindling, worry and anxiety to life..
terrible at times as it cuts like knife..
still, remaining still despite the strife..
bewitched and bewildered til dust..

Nevermind, all this will soon last..
Richness and beauty gradually rusts..
thus, stay humble and tuck in that bust..
God always sees and just..

The Other side of Maze

Slaves to the dark 
And the magic of the cynical spell,
The skywing of night 
Beholds the wishing well.

The path of ancient destiny
Paves the way to the future gate,
The before-fall of here-after
Sparkle-lights the lyrical fate.

From the afterglow of the shed-past
To the raging feel of the holy lust,
The moon-struck nightmares
Surreal the sun-soaked dream dust.

The Sailor with the one-eyed look

'Twas a cold wintry day
the road was frozen white and gleamin'
a pale sun stood over the clouds
watching them float lazily by
in the corner of a street
on a flat stone, so to speak
sat an old man, bearded and bare
he is the sailor with the one-eyed look

Sat as straight as a ramrod, did he,
back to the blizzard, now astride
with fingers so numb, eyes dim to see
getting a ha'penny from a passer-by
tramps and urchins flocked at he,
told them stories of the seas, he did
with arms a'waving like sails, you see
a gleam of joy in his eyes show'd

For he'd been to the wars
sailing on the ships of Her Majesty
seen it all, he's did, and lived,
came back home to muffins and tea
t'was on the seas he lost an eye
plucked out in an enemy fight
wounded and left behind to die
but didn't, and now home and dry

Retired from Her Majesty's service, he'd
now homeless, helpless, this once proud sailor
left with neither coin, nor a roof over his head
forced to the slums, living out of the gutter
t'was a piteous sight to behold, fie it!
would'a loved to chomp on choicy bit
displayed in the streets like in mama's kitchen
but not for his palate, just to be seen

Then it came, one bright sunny day
oh, what a bliss from snow and hail
tramps and children, out to play
free from the fear of icy pain
but alas! no sign of the sailor
save a snowy effigy, and on it his comb
for while snow lasted, the snow tailor'd
a snowy covering on him; it was his tomb!

Home Port Friends

In the Bay of Slaves the ships home port
The pirates lived in a wooden fort
Stealing and fighting was their sport
A modest abode for their knavish sort

Many children joined for class inside
Rules were kept for those to abide
Alexzanders eyes swept side to side
Behind the captain he tried to hide

“From now on you’re my son and this your home.
Other children are here, no more alone.
Your teacher is a professor from Rome.
So enjoy this land and make it your own.”

THE DARK BLUE WORLD

My Moondust said to me….

At the waters’ edge

Of a stream, running free

Beware the Dark Blue World

You are not ready

 

I fixed her with a quizzical eye

She smiled softly

Faeries have always known

Of things beyond

For now…

My love 

Let it lie

 

The Dark Blue World

Knows of you

You know not of futures made

Past

Here and now 

Of paths, laid

 

The path to travel

Is not yet made for you

Only with me

Can you be guided safely

 

Soon

Under an Autumn moon

We can see

Everything in the Dark Blue World

what it means to me

Malgavent Goldrunner

To some he is a myth or legend
But I am here to answer your questions

Is he real? Merely a tale to scare?
Oh he is real and you best beware!

None have seen him in decades it is said
Because he waits till your asleep in bed

Master swordsman, pirate, and sniper all true?
Only you will know when he comes for you

I suppose he cast spells on those he sees
Believe it boy he’ll bend your knees 

Seems unnatural or a cheap lie at best
You will realize it when you’re a bloody mess

This interview is over you senile old fool
Take him away and serve him extra gruel

I'm Coming, Father

Father had always spoken of ships
Their swiftness, capacity and might
I too- am amazed by this one
I stare out and into the night

It's cold up here, and I wonder
Where we are, relative to the globe
Small snowflakes tickle my rosy cheeks
As I cuddle in my mother's old robe

I walk down to my bunk with the others
Close my eyes and dream of home
All the chatter and children's breathing
Just make me feel so lost and alone

I don't know how long I've been sleeping
But there's a red light above my head
Screaming people are running all around
Filling my little soul with utter dread

The boat- this ship is shaking
So violently, i can hardly stand
I jump up, and attempt to run up the stairs
And I search in vain for any land

Instead, I see a dreadful sight
And my nightmares are all too real
Tilting and sinking- oh! We're sinking!
Some stop and they try to kneel

Panic has stricken the remainder
that have not fallen overboard
My hands are gripping the railing
The only life support I can afford

To die- will it be so painful?
tears are flowing as I embrace my slaughter
Alone in the night full of suffering
I let go- and I greet the water

Ice- I am blue, I am burning
Father, can you help me be free?
It's cold, so cold- I need to breathe in...
I'm coming home to thee

My pet poem

To write a poem everyday ,wasn't such a task,  
Just a little rhyming ode is all I really ask.

A simple ode that rythms out it wasn't much to say,
to breath some life into some words and brighten up your day.

I had to feed it constantly, morning, noon and night,
and soon it took up all my time, it gave me such a fright.

It smelled a foul of yukky stench and grew too long I feared,
Soon it would be far to big to keep it locked down here.

Midnight grumbles form the words that would not make its stay,
And gurgling chorts of snorts and warts it gave off everyday.

It killed grandmother, then the cat before it broke its chain,
And left a trail of slimy gunk dripping down the drain.

The Last Ship

                        The last ship
is leaving mortal waters
                        headed towards
a farther shore 
                        At the harbor
travelers say their good- byes
friends and family
                        This is the way 
of the world 
                       Nothing is permanent 
here on this blue planet 
                       The sea, the sky and the ocean
are subject to change 
                       and so are we
Our mortal frames destined 
for death and decay
                    But the ship is going
to a place where stories do not end 
where golden blossoms 
                   on silver trees await mortals
who are lucky enough to go there
                   We know so little about eternity 
but eternity knows so very much about us!

BOOM yelling BANG

Awakened by the loud pistol shot
A battle commenced blood was hot
“Where am I?” Alexzander thought
Noises progressing where the battle fought

Curiosity took hold, he dressed quickly
CRACK! Up above the sound sickening 
A voice he heard and recognized instantly
“Reassuring” he said admittedly 

Up the stairs sprinted the young lad
Once on deck the vision was sad
Sailors were dead and he was mad
Then tears welled up feelings bad

Something moved to quick to feel
The blade ran through, pain was real
Cold was the sharpened steel
His eyes closed shut, then he kneeled….

As the blade slew through his chest
His eyes caught hold of a man abreast
A shaven man of unknown test
Had regret in mind of his lawful jest

A boy so sickly murdered made the man ill
Took all his fight and spirit still
Then he turned towards the shrill
Of Capitan Red Beards final kill!

Over the planks he stammered over
To the boy with blood filling odor
Then to the man steel now shouldered 
Now it’s his time of death to lower.

A swing of a sword severed his head
A feeling of guilt for a child now dead
I shouldn’t have left my bed
His only tear is now being shed

A witch doctor tattooed from eye to foot
Covered the wound with a grainy soot
“A life still breaths in this crook!”
“Quick my magic and my book!”

12 days and 12 nights his magic cast
The wisdom of his darkened past
Healed the boy his color fast
Dreams were plotting a mind so vast

ON CRASHES

Half quarter to four
I am here To little tour
Where I go to detour
Come, show me in an hour

Drive your little white car..
Seeing you on a mile dart..
Oh! heart begin to start..
Pumping twice I can't halt..

On dark colored glasses..
Your looks on dashes..
My cheeks runs flushes.
Surrounding seems on crashes..

    The terrors are real 
but to are the joys 
     O, wanderers in the 
wilderness
     Reach out your arms
Cast your fears away 
      The lights of the 
woodland elves are burning 
     merrily 
Dwarves continue to have great festivals 
With much ale and great slabs of lamb and beef
 The time has come 
    for us to join hands 
with the good folk of Middle Earth 
Sauron and Morgroth having been defeated 
We can take delight freely 
  in life's small pleasures - a glass of ale - a pipe out of doors
The new age is coming and some beautiful thing will be gone forever 
  but there is plenty of joy left in this age 
  The Age of Men 
Where Isildur's heirs 
   will lead all Middle Earth 
   to an era of unequaled peace and prosperity

Awakening

In and out like that of a play
His wound now bore a mysterious clay
The Capitan’s voice made him stay
As he bowed now in silence to pray

As he awoke in the morn he slips
A water glass to his dry sweet lips
The witch doctor smiled and came to grips
To the startled son that time forgets

Smells of food ensnared his hunger
A bellow followed its sound was thunder
“Morning child! A hungry monger?”
The boy sat up his food placed under

Hot rolls, sliced ham, and sausage links
“A bath today, this boy now stinks!”
The captain agrees to what doc now thinks
To wash away the blood that leaks

His wound stung when the water struck
A model ship and a rubber duck
Shared the tub, the lads in luck
Red Beards love has finally struck

IN OUR ROOM

Burgundy drapes fall

From the window

This fireplace

The embers glow

 

Muted light

Reflecting

Panelled wood

Soft glowing

 

Crackle of wood

Flickering firelight

In our room

Our delight

 

Great Forest Tapestries

Of leaf and bark

Adorn the wall

Our forest

Our trees

 

In our room

Filled with books and firelight

The snow outside

Still falling

Soft scent of you

My heart,

calling

 

The soft hue

Of Tiffany lamps

Rugs from Persia

Being with you

 

In our room too

Billowing clouds

Tall ships sail

Of seas green and blue

 

Upon the hearth

The dogs lay

Snoring softly in firelight

They enjoyed the walk today

 

In our room

Flickering firelight

Illuminating the gloom

Snow outside

Soft and white

i stopped by the river

I stopped by the river...

Gently flowing past,

Such cool water,

Slaked my thirst

 

I feel the waters pull on my hand

Secret chuckle flowing by

Water, so clear

You can see the river sand

 

I picked up some river sand

Let it slowly trickle through my hand

Am I grain of sand?

Tumbling in water,

So clear,

Throughout this verdant land

 

Where is my place?

Where am I meant to be?

Gently flowing past

Part of this river,

Becoming me

   

Sweet waters,

So clear

In its' depths

I am meant to be

 

I stopped by the river...

Or did the river stop me?

I may never know,

For in its' depths,

A grain of sand

Is what you see

What I show

 

 

Swathes of weeping willow

On the river...

Cast a shadow,

Soft green glow

In water

So clear

 

A grain of sand,

In the clear waters

Of the river

Becomes me

In this beautiful land

Arthur Sly

Let it be known that Arthur Sly
Was caught red handed and sentenced to die

For he trespassed and stole fine things
Like loaves of bread, diamonds, and rings

This urchin of Satan horded all
And the others to answer his call

This gangsters hideout was well concealed
 Till we tortured his mates to seal the deal

No matter how slight he might be in years
His mind is best amongst his peers

To rid us of this Haynes threat
Let him be hung by the neck!

The date is uncertain of this jest
My  magistrates motives are blotchy at best

He says there is more and wishes to show
Her majesties guest at the ball in snow

The sky was a thousand miles high

I swear today the sky was a thousand miles high.
I could see to the very edge, until there was no more.
Imagine gliding with the wind, so free, so wild.
What I wouldn’t give to fly a thousand miles high.

THIS OLD TRUCK

ME AND THIS OLD TRUCK, IS HAULING OUR LAST LOAD.
DOWN THIS LONG HARD BUMPY ROAD.
IT TOSSES ME AROUND, AS IT SWAYS FROM SIDE TO SIDE.
NOW ME AND THIS OLD TRUCK IS ON OUR LAST RIDE

 I CAN MEMBER WHEN THIS OLD TRUCK WAS BRAND NEW.
I WAS SO FULL OF PRIDE.
I WASH IT AND WAXS IT UNTIL YOU COULD SEE YOUR REFLECTION ON IT.
NOW ME AND THIS OLD TRUCK IS ON OUR LAST RIDE.

I CAN REMEMBER MY DAD AND I.
WE WORK IN THE FIELDS ,FROM EARLY DAWN TO SETTING SUN.
WE WORK AND WORK UNTIL ALL THE WORK WAS DONE.
MY DAD ON HIS OLD RED TRACTOR, 
MOWING GRASS,PLOWING FIELDS,CUTTING HAY.
ME AND THIS OLD TRUCK WOULD HAUL IT ALL AWAY.

THIS OLD TRUCK RUN LIKE A DEER.
HER MOTOR PURR LIKE A KITTEN.
WE WERE ALWAYS SEEN TOGETHER,THROUGH ALL KINDS OF WEATHER.
NEVER ONCE DID SHE EVER GET US STUCK.
LORD HOW I LOVE AND WILL MISS THIS OLD TRUCK.
WELL WE FINALLY COME TO OUR JOURNEY END.
THE ONLY THING LEFT TO SAY IS,
GOODBYE  MY OLD FRIEND.

Best Buds Forever

I still remember that day when you were a kitten,
You were so small and fit in my hand like a mitten.
I knew when I held you I would raise you,
The love I felt was more than true.
I was with you at my grandma's till I could take you home, 
Then the journey of raising you began...

We brought you home and I showed you our house,
I still remember when you saw your first mouse.
You jumped out of my arms and made your attack,
I stood there and watched you get your afternoon snack.
Then we were deciding on names for you,
I just felt something with dexter and knew it was true.
I was only 8 and didn't know any better,
I did some things that I still regret.

I tormented you so bad,
Looking back it makes me sad.
But I grew up and knew how to take care of you,
Even though what I did when I was younger made me feel blue.
You grew up so fast,
I never thought me and you as buds would last.
But it did I'm so proud for that,
Because in the end your my cat.

Then came the day we would move into a bigger house,
But you never again got a hold of a mouse.
You were so scared but I took you under my wing.
I showed you around the house and you were so happy.
I redeemed myself from everything I had done.

Things got better between us as the days flew by,
The love strong that were flying so high together in the sky.
You greet me when I walk through the door,
I feel so touched that I fall to the floor.
I cherish every second that your on my bed or just saying hi in my room,
The smile that's on my face brings a tear that would make flowers bloom.

Now your all grown up and still getting older,
The temperature in my heart has gotten colder.
So cold because I know your time is soon up,
I'm struggling to figure out how full is my cup.
I only wish you could live longer and we still be together,
But we will always be best buds forever.

Bridges

   Bridges.........

Words from the heart,as the feelings are shown.
Bridges the distance,between fear and what's known.
The words pave the way,from me to you,
Holding us together,much like glue........
Cold wind awakens,the feelings inside,
Sometimes so strong,I feel I must hide.
From out of the shadows,a hand reaches out,
Understanding arises,from the shadows of doubt.....
The wind keeps on howling,I feel I must change,
Though I've been here before,so much is strange.
Just like a spirit,released from it's cage,
Love arises,from the ashes of rage.
The world spins faster,yet time just stands still,
I gaze to the valley,from on top of this hill.
Destiny awaits,for my fate to forfill...........
Bridges become the connection,between two hearts,
They seem rather infinite,the end becoming the start.
Sometimes when I feel sad,and all alone,
Bridges appear,to find my way home.
The distances that once felt like they were too far,
Dissolve right before us,as we see who we are.
Tattered and frayed,from the journey at hand
Bridges are dreams,to a far away land.
I awoke to realize all that I see,
I guess I discovered,just who I will be?
Words become bridges,between two thoughts,
They appear quite different,Although they're not...........

Oh Little Sundae Dipper

Oh Little Dipper Dipper,
what are you dipping for?
the sweetly vast vanilla seas,
or ginger cookie shores?

Oh little starlit ladle,
what swirls within your cup?
a batch of cotton candy clouds
you gently gathered up?

Or maybe licorice lava, cooled
from swaying in the night.
Or maybe bits of sour sun
and rays of lemon light.

Oh little diamond dipper,
if something tipped your tin,
would sugar flakes begin to fall?
would chocolate rain descend?

If ice cream comets tumbled,
be they pink or white or brown,
I wouldn't wear my boots or coat,
nor would I wear a frown.

'Cause Little Sundae Dipper, dad
and I believe that that's okay--
'cause everything's worth dipping for within our Milky Way!

The Rumble from Below

They heard the rumble from below
Drinks were spilled; they stopped the show.
The scream was heard, the tension rose
The crowd was still, the music froze.

The lights flickered, a roar was heard
Wild lion appears, then massacred
All the zebras, flailing around
So their stripes were safe and sound

This lion though, was smarter than that
2 weeks he’d been a hungry cat
Such silly follies were no match
To save lives on this grassland patch.

Small Town Big People

I look in the mirror and see the years gone
I can look beyond the glass out the window
To the yards of my childhood
I can smell the flowers and feel the grass ‘neath my feet. 
I can hear the music blasting on the radio
Mama callin’ me for supper.  


I yearn to go back to that danged town
I fought to get away and never look back,
I never wanted to live there again. 
I guess there’s a piece of me
There in that little town. 

The town is small and so are the events
You’re everyone’s business 
You can get a break and can’t get away
You don’t even have a say
You go to and from and people protest
And those same people will still put you to the test


I yearn to go back to that danged town
I fought to get away and never look back,
I never wanted to live there again. 
I guess there’s a piece of me
There in that little town. 

I made it to the big town K.C, 
Got myself a husband and a son and a place to live
Settled in and made a life, got a career
I swear I’ll never return to my best friend
Comfortable where I stand, 
Happy where I am 


I yearn to go back to that danged town
I fought to get away and never look back,
I never wanted to live there again. 
I guess there’s a piece of me
There in that little town. 

Well times are hard,
And people are ruthless in this cut throat time
Jobs are scarce and bills run high
You never know what you’ll hear at night
The people are small in this big town
Yeah people are small in this big town


I yearn to go back to that danged town
I fought to get away and never look back,
I never wanted to live there again. 
I guess there’s a piece of me
There in that little town. 

I guess the town is small
Just good ol’ boys and girls havin’ fun
Small place, small town, small world
People may talk and people may watch
But the biggest thing in that small town
Are the people after all. 


I yearn to go back to that danged town
I fought to get away and never look back,
I never wanted to live there again. 
I guess there’s a piece of me
There in that little town.

BEFORE IT RAINS

Taking hope out of a gloomy day
is like living without a hopeful heart;
and waiting for miracles without praying
is bringing on a specter of infidelity,
which disrupts my daily living...
making me ponder faith with distrust!

Before it rains, I hope for a rainbow at five...
believing that it will there for me to admire,
not merely imagining, but envisioning its beauty;
what is hidden from the eyes shouldn't be a mystery,
and this Humankind has created myths and legends
for the ones lacking the sixth sense!

Embarking on that journey of incognito,
solely relying on this overburdensome ego,
causes me to experience inquietude
in a most unfovarable latitude;
and freedom is confined in short miles,
when my ship comes to an halt for guidance!

Before it rains, I'll see myself securing the anchor,
and step on the pier of the safest harbor...
waving at the fading rainbow over the refulgent horizon;
taking pride and remembering the grueling fright
of a captain who never displayed a doubt...
even when the storm dashed the agitated ocean!

Immortal View of Time

Immortal I stand at the dawn of time watching as history unfolds what will become of 
mankind. War and evil is said to be man made, but it was created by the Ancient of Days; 
long before the snake will entice the mortals to slay.

The land is green with promise of that which is unseen, seize the day while it is young is the 
battle cry of the old, carpe diem is dead and cold. Potential is something that is most not fully 
realized, and never surpassed. History is the story of man never learning from the mistakes 
they have made before; there is no new problem under the sun.

Little spiders in my brain running at the speed of light, each carries a little thought some of: 
joy, hope, fear, and delight. Another fly dies food for thought is consumed fueling my mind 
through out the night.

The war within is the one not without belief, that these ants, spiders, and flies live and die for 
something larger than what they are in this life. “Veni Vedi Veci” Caesar cried but what was it 
for that this ant died? Shakespeare wrote, he spun and weaved but with his web of beautiful 
words is he really anything more than a spider to me?

The Brink of the dawn until this point in time: you’re born, you live and die. Is there a point to 
try? The pages of history are all the same, but do your best to live it different in each day. We 
will put it on your grave that you dared to live for the new day, which never came for you 
anyways.

Immortal I stand at the setting of the sun it seems like yesterday time has just begun; but 
now it’s done and these mortals had a good run. They have managed to find grace in the 
eyes of the Ancient of Days.

Our Eyes See All

Through our eyes we see a world that is ever changing. We look on as the children play carelessly in the parks and fearfully on the streets. We see the joy in a new mother’s eyes and the pain in those of the homeless one as she searches desperately for food and shelter. 

Our Eyes See All.

Through our eyes we have seen our country both flourish and suffer. We have been witness to wars and depression. We have cheered for freedom and democracy. Through our eyes we have seen slaves freed and women included. We have helplessly watched on as family values declined while crime was on the rise.

Our Eyes See All. 

Through our eyes we can see our future. We watch on proudly as our children grow and learn. We see the innocence and hope in their eyes as they begin to live out their dreams. In the future we see our children living in a world we could only dream of, never truly expecting to see. A world virtually free of crime, hate and violence. A world where all are treated just as they were created, equally. 

Our Eyes See All. 

Through our eyes we have witnessed our history. We have seen a constantly changing world. A world full of struggle and promise. When we look around us we see the world as it is today; all of it’s beauty with all of it’s flaws. As we envision our future we see a world living in peace and harmony. A world where everyone has the right to truly live freely and happily. We see the future we have all been waiting for, a future of rewards. 

Our Eyes See All.

Healer Of Pain

A man struggles to see the light, 
Which shined so bright.
Darkness impours him and he fight's to break free,
But there's no light and he can't see.
The darkness is strong he trembles with fear,
He makes a cry to God loud and clear.
Forgive me for I have done wrong,
The evil around me is just to strong.
I come to you,
To help me through.
He opens his eyes and suddenly can see,
The light he had lost but now found for God answered him and set him free.
He thinks to himself how could I have been so vain,
But he forgives himself for he was saved by the healer of pain.

but it also about relationships,

and you will look in my eyes and say \' i love you\' .

But Christmas is also a time for relationships and love, even if you spend it with

The eyes of the immortal (part 1)

The fever comes upon the mortal
Through it he seeks his mind to see
What lies behind the hidden portal
Behind the scenes of his reality

He sees forces that furiously unravel
Upon the souls of the flesh and blood
They seek the despair, the power, the emotion
To discovery the new in their immortal now

They sense his eyes looking at them
His consciousness swimming in their unknown
They look back, with a desire for pestilence
Troubled as he is, afraid he now becomes

Rotten his reality, begging for the something
To the few that notice .. his futility on the streets
He craves for his status, his power and his money
The things that depraved him of his soul

Yet nobody looks, nobody hears and no one understands
The earth has closed his gates to his mouldered soul
Trapped between the world of vision and the world of now
His mind starts planning his devious return

I see so much through these gorgeous eyes 
I've seen pain and misery through tears 
I've seen love and joy for countless nights 
I've enjoyed the pleasures of looking into  
The deep starry eyes of a gorgeous flower 
I see the rose petals blooming 
I see the the sun gleaming through those eyes 
I envision you in my heart and soul 
An may we awl hand in hand to the sea shores above 
To see his godly will bewilder your love senseless 
So close your eyes and envision me  
I see your beautiful body  
I see your beautiful mind 
I see so much through these gorgeous eyes  
I see me and you together for ever 
Through love and life itself. 
Now look into my eyes

Pendelum 2 c

I use a clockwise circle as yes{as the clock hands move }and anticlock circle as no..If the pendulum moves just up and down no circle it means they are dead..YOU MAKE THE RULES FOR YOURSELF…I mark an x where the bugs are and spray them. Sometimes you feel the pull of the needle when your soul is showing you a spot yes. This is just the same stuff as when you are divining water, and works on the invisible. IT DOES WORK your higher self gives advice if you want it? At 10 pm last night I tried the pendulum and found a clockwise circle in the room , so I sprayed the area…and went to bed… At 2am I thought I was being invaded by itchy buggers felt small bites and became so convinced agitated I got up and went to the toilet…Coming back I asked the pendulum was it real And got no…I checked the bed area and the room by pendulum and got NO… bloody neurosis imagination I have been driven from my bed a dozen times before and spent bad nights …but the pendulum doesn’t lie….so convinced by the pendulum I went back to bed and slept till 7.30am…to see the unseeable….

Surreal Dreams

When the road is a gypsies ribbon and the trees dance with the wind
The nights hours fade to memorie. Embracing the Carnal sins.

Two succubus hands provoke my senses. For wine has their control.
I deny their actions and offenseses. Cleansing my harden soul.

To my eyes they appear angelic. Like sapphires amidst moonlight.
I admire them like relics. Only for the night.

I bring them to my house to sleep their demons away.
They want something else. Pulling me astray.

I lay their figures on clouds of white. My bed is large and grand.
Both scratch, claw, and bite. With promises engraved in sand.

Finally ending their sharade. They fall asleep together
Really wanting to get laid. I sustained the tempest weather.

When the rays seep through. Waking weary eyes.
I witness it too! A maroon sunrise.
Breakfast is waiting on the gentile stool.
Kind smells are baiting for their appitiets are cruel.

After eating they slip away to their home of family hood.
Fully contemplating the way I fully understood.

Later amongst our peers and friends. The ladies convey my trust.
Drawing near favorites and kin. For a savage lust.

THE COURTSHIP OF LARISSA

A gentle look...
From a girl , so fair
Everything she touched,
she loved too
 
A chance meeting,
in the walled garden
Filled with Sunfire roses
and foxglove
A knight, fell in love
 
The beauty of a Sunfire rose
laid at her door
A girl borne on a South Wind
Everything she touched
Everything she saw
She loved too
 
It was the beauty of nature,
that drew them to the walled garden
A noble Knight
With the kindest blue eyes 
Saw Larissa, in the sunlight
 
A touch of finger tips
A sunset of gilded pink
A kiss upon her lips
 
A Sunfire rose
Everyday laid at her door
To a woman...
Who touched the heart of a knight
Whom she loved
To a knight...
Who saw a beautiful woman
Standing in sunlight
 
Larissa
Borne on a southwind
Warm and sweet
A girl, so fair
A girl, so pretty
Everything she touched
She loved too

The Battle Begins

Now sleep I may,
Into the night,
For the spirits and tomatoes
helped set things right.

I know I shouldn’t have,
For my meds don’t allow it,
But is too late now,
Please don’t you try it.

Was something I needed,
The pressure within,
Oh how I wish,
To start over again.

But she will not have it,
I do not fit in.
Her schedule is hectic, 
No time to mend.

I call her up,
No time for me,
She says just give up,
Please leave me be.

How I hate spirits,
How do you people drink this stuff?
But I am not finished,
I haven’t had enough.

For there are things inside me,
We have to get out,
Scratches on my back,
I could live without.

So deep and hurting,
Attacking my heart,
This day has been coming,
It is not a new start.

I knew from the beginning,
That this could not be,
But always an ending,
To set you free.

Now in total darkness,
The lights are so bright,
What will become of me,
On this fateful night.

The black wolf approaches,
I can sense his fear,
He can smell my scratches,
As he comes near.

Death is our battle,
We will fight tonight,
Our hearts will rattle,
To see who is right.

Deeper and deeper,
I am going down,
His blows are a killer
So profound.

He knows where to strike,
To make the best hit,
I try with all my might,
But deeper into the pit.

A loosing battle I fight,
I wanted to win,
But this is not the night,
What a night it has been.

I have a cold and feel terrible. What did you think?

THIS GARDEN OF FLOWERS

This garden of flowers

Can be yours too

Follow me

What you can see

What can be

 

This garden of flowers

Deep in your heart

Flowers of blue

Pink too

 

Such beauty inside

Wanting to be free

Your colour

What it means to me

What it cannot hide

 

This richness I see

Flowers blossoming

What it means to me

My heart feeling

The colours cascading

 

This garden of flowers

I found in you

So precious too

The colours revealed inside

The heart sighed

 

This garden of flowers

You cannot hide

What you have inside

Colours to touch

Colours to feel

Colours that make it real

 

For, the heart

Holds the delicate blooms

The colour booms

What I can see too,

Justice Done Right

Before you win you have to lose,
But make sure to think about the path you choose.
Cause the wrong one could ruin it all,
To where you stumble and fall.
Rise above the equation,
Getting rid of anger and frustration,
Even though it may not be a great situation,
Have to seek forth with pure concentration.
Keeping your focus to the light,
It shines with passion in the night,
Helping you burning so bright,
To give you strength to stand and fight,
Justice done right.

Before you win you have to lose,
Always keep a look out for that shortened fuse.
It could explode bursting  into flames with a huge cloud of smoke,
Spreading rapidly in all directions with no air to breathe everything starts to choke. 
Dying off seems the only way,
You start to day dream about yesterday,
Then it starts to fade away,
Your holding onto strings better left to fray.
Suddenly you see a light,
Burning with passion ever so bright,
You break free and continue to fight,
Justice done right.

A CASTLE SPARROW

The sparrow fixed me
With a quizzical eye
I am sure it knew
All that I thought
As it hopped with glee

I lifted a finger
The sparrow jumped upon it
It chirruped to me
I understood finally
That a bird
Who gives it's heart
Will sing
Merrily

Every day
That castle sparrow
Came to my window
I let it in
Let it play
I loved it so

The way to a sparrows' heart
Is to sit still
Let it come to you
Of its' own free will

A castle sparrow
Flew around the room
Singing
Lifting my spirits, so low
I thought of nothing else
Than to see a tiny bird
Filled with joyous glow

I brought little treats every day
For a castle sparrow
That I love to watch,
sing and play

It fixed me
with a quizzical eye
As if it knew
All of me
My very own sparrow
I loved it too

Rosaline

Moonlight shines down on my cold, pale face I am alone, her raven calling, I am disgrace Falling as the willows weep, I hold her in my arms as she struggles to breathe Rosaline, my one love divine. You are sacred You are mine Her voice rising above the water Beautiful Rosaline sang silently to me The whispers trailing off her fingers, as she faded into the darkness My beautiful angel has vanished again Goodbye my Beautiful Rosaline. Happened that Grim reckless day when the shadows began to play Beauty detonated in my trust No more, no more will there ever be a witch so grand, as to bring back my Beloved Rosaline Sorrow cuts it's way into my heart It is the locked key, the one you keep Her voice rising above the water Beautiful Rosaline sang silently to me The whispers trailing off her fingers, as she faded into the darkness My beautiful angel has vanished again Goodbye my Beautiful Rosaline So leaving this Tragic scene I vanished from Rosaline's sight Nevermore will there ever be a witch so grand, as to bring back my Beloved Rosaline Her voice rising above the water Beautiful Rosaline sang silently to me The whispers trailing off her fingers, as she faded into the darkness My beautiful angel has vanished again Goodbye my Beautiful Rosaline. Enchanting she sang to me, in the everlasting light of peace My beautiful siren walks again Goodnight my Beautiful Rosaline

The Vision

The fire was out, the flame was gone
But one small shaft of sun yet shone
And that one shaft did make a hole
In that dark dungeon of my soul
I saw it as it broke that crust
And cast into the air was dust
Into that hole my hand did thrust
And deep inside that hole I found
The rarest treasure all around
A butterfly that spoke one sound
And "love" it said, then it was bound
Into the air and off it went
As if it were from heaven sent
The wind picked up, with newfound hope
My dungeon fell away to smoke
I found myself then in a meadow
And that was when I saw her shadow
Her silhouette was beautious fair
And blowing in the wind, her hair
Was moving with such perfect grace
It was then that I saw her face
It was the most enchanting thing
I'd ever seen. But then the ring
Did catch my eye. On her finger there,
A golden band with fiery flair.
But then and there she heaved a sigh
So fraught with woe, she began to cry
But my dark face must have caught her eye
For when she simply turned around
My heart began to leap and bound
And then I caught sight of her name
But NO! she couldn't be the same
As the other person that I knew
Of that same name, could it be true?
Her name was carved there in a tree
So that anyone who wished to see
Would simply look and know 'twas she.
Her hair was darker than before
But her beauty was all there. And sore
Was I to see her go with wind
That did begin to blow. So pinned
Against a wall behind me there
Forlorn with loss then I did dare
To scream into the wind with pain
Her one eternal lovely name

Succinct and Full of Joy

Succinct and Full of Joy


Oh, this expansive form moves from side to side; 
most of the time it is free to roam the arid landscape of expectation, the things one
hands down in time and fashion – the control we relinquish,
the automatic retributive response to morality,
to limitations – but my fervent brother,
my whole hearted fellow, there is more.
Beyond the barrier of occurrence,
There is faith – a beam pure and simple
 – a salient focused vibration melded
strong in love a forbearance, 
you cannot hold it in your fingers
but it’s weighty still,  it lingers
in the void it seeks to fill, 
in those sparse moments of 
doubt and fear it seeks to wrap you,
hold you near, near to where
holy Seraphin herald the 
coming of your soul’s inclusion – away
 from this dream,
Away from the roadway's folly,
to a place succinct and full of joy.

Baby Doll

When I was young, chic Baby Dolls were fun to dress and talk to.
To hope and dream with Baby Doll; those wishes would come true too.
What fun I had with Baby Doll; when she and I made just two.
That Baby Doll had clothes galore; and never did she have one chore.

She even had a car to drive; and the house we shared was so divine.
“When I grow up”, she made me wish “I’d really like to be one”.
My dream came true and I ‘m that doll I always longed to be;
But to those of you who think of dolls as mere objects of amusement;
You flirt, and say, “Hey Baby Doll”; then smile real big;
Your wide eyes filled with glee;

I cannot help it, if you think a toy is what you see;
So what I’ve learned to say real fast is,
 “don’t even think about playing with me”.

Most High

Most High,
Reigning in the sky,
Thats how he sees the Sovereign Lord..
 
It begins with a man,
A young man,
Walked with God when he was young,
Didn't know wrong from right,
Left the Lord out of his sight,
Was a troubled kid in his school,
His school life was sent in a whirlpool,
Failed a yr and worked really hard,
He passed got dealt two good cards,
But God dealt him a hand that would change his life forever..

A terrible accident had happened,
Lucky to have survived,
Lying face down,
He cant feel from the neck down,
Taste of blood in his mouth,
He blacks out,
Wakes up being helped on a stretcher,
He was put into a helicopter,
He blacks out again,
Wakes up in his room,
Not knowing whether he can walk again,
He cries out to a nurse,
"Will i walk again?",
She says "Your very lucky dear boy,
And there was no permanent damage, 
It will take time,
But you should be walking in no time.",
He smiles,
Tried to pick up he cup made of styrofoam,
But he cant,
He finds out his wrist was broken in two places,
And will heal on its own,
He notices a long scar on his knee,
He was told he did permanent nerve damage,
And wont be able to feel anything on it or around it,
In what felt like a long time,
He made a complete recovery,
Grew stronger with his legs,
Goes back to school,
A day after his birthday,
And thats when the nightmare began.. 

Then one day,
His parents saved him with their kind words,
His eyes were opened,
He saw everything clearer and brighter,
He accepted God's word,
Hes grown stronger through Christ,
He was redeemed by his Savior,
God's unfailing love truly means the world to him,
His walk with God have been a journey he can not explain,
But the smile on his face says it all,
He walks stronger and stands tall,
For he put his trust in God,
The Sovereign Lord..
 
Most High,
Reigning in the sky,
Thats how he sees the Sovereign Lord.

When a god dies

Up in the clouds the king sits with no one around. His eyes roam to a fro walking the earth day 
and night yet with all his might he does not fathom the joy and happiness of these ants in his 
sight. Their life is short just days in his sight, but still they dream, love, fight, and die. Searching 
for a reason he left his throne. He walked among them and saw them as man; they walked 
upright, used reason and logic as he did. He came to a village a little girl cried I am so hungry, 
my father has died. The great king fed this family of three, but still they knew not the god-king 
he be. When they had ate the girl gave him a hug, the mother cried and bid him good-bye with 
love. This love was a thing he had never felt before, now he understood why they carried out 
their wars. The passion and pride that burns inside: a reason to believe, to fight, and to die. The 
deity returned high to his throne, having felt wanted he now felt alone; immortality looms large, 
it is too much to bear he needed a reason to live for, a purpose to care. The vastness of forever 
ahead no one to love nothing to live for the god-king dies. From his death there is a lesson to 
learn from his life, it is not how long you live but what you live for. Until you have something 
worth dying for you’re not really living

HE and his ART

Many hearts, each a beat
HE and his Art
=====
Sympathy struck my soul within the Watts Towers
One man, broken, lost
Gave other broken pieces of life another chance to shine
With beauty and grace
Close to his heart
Close to god

Before his hand came down
They were just figures fallen
Pieces hitting
Rock pavement bottom

These objects, that once served propose
Once had value
No longer desired

Used and abused
Broken souls
Left to corrode

Do you know what it feels like to be alone in fear
In shame with no hope
Can’t look in the mirror

Thought to no longer have purpose,
On this earth
To no longer have beauty
To no longer, have worth

Rebirth

Sees art on the ground
His Hand comes down
A man, once broken and scared
A suffering alcoholic with a second chance at life
His heart and soul he bares 

Perhaps it was sympathy,
He felt that day
When he started to create, a place of hope
The skills to cope 
For the pieces left to waste away

Each broken object, each piece of junk
He gave a gift of serenity
To shine and glimmer
To live beautifully,
In company 
Sublime and serene
Achieved

Surrounded by like others,
Once pieces left behind 
Alone, you seek cover
Together, in time

Is strength, and beauty
A vision of unity
A collective propose
Of vision and purity

What new perspective, from the inside to out 
Changes on the faces of the people about 
Seeing the junk, as a ship not sunk

In the shape of hope
And inspiration, a dream
Where we can go and where we have been

Reflect on this now
Of those who never saw
What the man’s vision was
Love, real and raw
In those broken pieces

With his signature, his heart
Left in different formations
Bottle and plates
Imagination
=====
Many hearts, each a beat
HE and his Art

A Wolfs Paradise

A Wolf’s Paradise A place, where once the wolves of time, shook off their godly shields, To come to Earth eternally, where only seasons yield. They fashioned then, a godly place, of wood and shade and stone, to rest their souls and bide awhile. A heavenly, earthly home. All have tried to sing of thee, the Human, Nymph and Muse. Of your verdant halls of ochren shades, which golden lights suffuse. These wolves of time, have erelong passed from memory, thought and deed And left this for humanity, a place for those in need. A heady place, of mossen scent, this place of liquid time, Where peace and joy, yet still abound and all this can be thine. A fastness free, from troubles real, a place to soothe thy soul. A drink of serendipity, true tastes of life, your goal. Come, walk with me within these walls of wood and shade and stone. Come, lay with me in spirit’s rest, this one true wolfenholme. Brushy

Lift up our hands towards Your light.

Open our eyes to the world at the end of our pointing fingers.
May we shine to that city on the hill,
Your already there waiting with our hearts for you to fill.
May we hear the toll of the ringing bell,
Make our hearts thirsty to come to the well.

May the glory of Your name be the passion of the church,
Let the righteousness of God be a Holy flame that burns.
We believe Your all to us.
To You the nations bow down,
To You creation cries out.
All things we hold together,
Your name will stand forever.
Majesty! You are Majesty!
For You and You alone awake our soul awake our soul and see,
For the world You love Your will be done let Your will be done in us.

In this nation.

Lift up our hands towards Your light.

May we hear the toll of the ringing bell,
Make our hearts thirsty to come to the well.

The War Part 2

NOON

The infantry open up for the cavalry
At full horse power speed they attack
Too late to use artilleries now
But it made some horses tumble, about a fifty
Six hundred horse ran to the infantry

Infantry too late for squares ran to the cavalry
They fired there muskets, brought down some sixty horses
It was the time of the cavalry lances where release
Unlike arrows it killed two at a time. The cavalry ran 
On the infantry. Head out of necks, arms out of scapulas, and legs out of hips.

The whole army retreats, they send their whole cavalry
Cavalry meets cavalry. One thousand lances released on a four hundred
Horrible! Men were carried from horses to horses, lances
Horse were raise up high, neighs turn to roars, lances
Now nine hundred and fifty to sixty, the opposite retreat.

The colonel seeing the sixty running ordered a chase. Fool!
The opposite's Brigadiers laughs, he ordered his brigade
To get ready. After their sixty drove in
The infantry made squares. At their captain's orders.
Salvo's were head, two thousand shots on a nine hundred and fifty.

Sympathetic bullets entered heads and hearts horses tumbled
They caused confusion, de-horse horsemen ran back.
It was only a ninety that penetrated killing a forty
Twenty horsemen retreated with wounds
There was silence, scout men where sent to count losses

Everywhere I go, It Reigns

Everywhere I Go it Reigns

Silent.
Still the Son today – stretch a gauze across his face.
Stir remorse amid the clouds,
Unto me, I say – tiny hands of angels, millions swarm the skies to pull the curtain
closed, yet to reveal dull surprise—
This mist shall send a message, the vapor spins a web – each thought we murmur, say, I
say, I said with no regret.
For gathered in this scheme,
The dreams of Gods and men,
The surface shimmers new, a cleansing solace new.
For God’s breath – renounced, the fluid pure it flows,
He lives!
So close,
So vehemently to you,
But you’ve known this all along,
Reach out and feel his tears upon your palms
More than any psalm I say,
More than you this day,
A gift of love and harmony,
He sheds such concepts blue,
Place your face towards the skies,
You’re being there renewed.

Perhaps

Perhaps I might have lived before?
A smuggler bold with contraband,
A peasant poor in days of yore,
Or Lady in a foreign land?

Were you with me, and did we fly
As brother, father, daughter, wife?
Did you and I in days gone by
Play out a great dramatic life?

Together did we feel this force,
This love that shines now with such bliss,
As cat or horse (or mouse, of course)?
And did we fight, or only kiss?

Our partnership, with facets bright
That send out rays that dazzle so,
Emits such light, attains such height,
That truly I’m intrigued to know!

However many lives, begun
A million times, I’d still prove true!
A rich man’s son, fish, bird, or nun,
I’d only sing love’s song to you.

A Titanic Episode

So the ship will sail
For those who have the price to pay
And I have a tale
To leave here if I pass away
This journal will speak
To the journey I now shall take
From life here so bleak
To sunrise future that shall break
               ***
Come back with me to the cinders flying
To Kelly's coal yard and my story
My skin made black and my age is hoary
Time is hard and, no bit worth living

And over there not far away building
A ship of dream unsinkable real
And in my heart dreaming a fervent zeal
To be aboard with the sailing

I am a coal man, that is who I am
I know the heat, and I fan the flame
So I'm hired for furnace to move the frame
Across the deep cold Atlantic dam

I have no kith to love me,  kinfolks gone
To America for a promised land
It does not matter then my blistered hand
I seek too another better dawn

What was it, I did not know, yet awake
Her sunlight hit the deck, made it glow
And my heart was warmed on the lake like snow
The first day aboard, my sugar cake.

And all I had to do was rescue her sack
From wayward trampling feet, then aboard
I brought it, gallantly and without sword
I cut the prejudice swiftly back

Kindness is the key that opens love door
And that was all my life did own
I went down, and she a next stair shown
The rich is well closed off from the poor

Would she forget what I remembered still
Her soft sweet skin, her sun shining smile
My heart young again, pining all the while
To know if her pearly ever will

We soot black ones never got a permit
To see from atop the eager sea
But she touring her palace came down to me
Found my furnace, and sweating did sit.

She preferred the flame to the faceless sea
The flickering fires, the frantic eyes
The tiger tenaciously stalked the prize
Of rippling muscles soft humility.

And so like birds we scraps of dreams sharing
From day to day discover afresh
The human worth in our human flesh
The long and sultry sweet of longing

My heart cast off from life boat and reason
Blackened her with accidental touch
And she overcame, into me rushed
The first kiss has so short a season.

Five days is a long time for love to grow
An eternity for a kiss
What did I know of icebergs and cold mist
What could my furnace not melt below

And yet this clamouur, and frights wild uproar
And all the pushy orders given
I got her a lifeboat, a boat's heaven
And wept that she was gone evermore

But she looking back, saw me there weeping
And jumped to swim back that dismal sea
Hence Diary my last entry to thee
For I must jump in, farewell, I'm going.

Day

Day

This symptom of reality
Moves the wind and water,
Yet – its location’s hard to find.
It darts across the landscape
Fine.
It moves in seconds, the sands of
Time.
But its gratitude is hard to
Find.
Love this day for what it isn’t.
Its majesty is in your
Mind.

Another Bullet From A Sniper

It's a war story. One shot... One kill... No guts, No glory...

Out in some country you didnt know existed. Getting ready to know the mission your gathering your throughts but your minds twisted. Captain tells you, your on a sniper mission. He tells you "Get your gear and meet back here so I can explain your explain." Next thing you know your geared up so you won't get spotted, Your rifle loaded and your ready to go. Soon at your location with your friend who was made your eyes, To tell what to look for, Who to kill and when to shoot. In the room of the 22nd floor of an abandoned hotel peeping out the window awaiting instructions while staying unseen, You get your instructions to keep a lookout at the ravine. You await the presence of a masterminded Leader who you know what he looks like and his nickname is Viper. You spot him take your chance and got him. Another bullet from a sniper.

Still trying to stay unseen, You head to the back window and parachute out. Head to the vehicle and attempt a get away before word gets out the Leaders been killes, Then while your thinking we did it, an RPG on the roof top fires hits road aside the jeep and flips over, And all plans before you are spilled. Your knocked out. Your friend calls for back up. You awake hearing gun shots and explosives. Under heavy fire, your squad asking "What do we do Srg.?" Some saying "We're gonna die!" You grab your sniper rifle and gun down the RPG's. The sign of defeat is no longer in sight. Your squad fighting for all your might. Srg. calls in an air strike. Your squad takes cover. Hearing the roaring jets and the sounds of explosions over and over. Your squad gets news the enemy has surrendered and look out only to see smoke and bodies laying everywhere, Headed back home with a victory along with an almost scare. All from another bullet from a sniper.

Aquarian Dream I-- The Rebellion

Centuries are unfolded Filled with corruption and lies Where's the change A tyrant has an iron hand But we are the diamonds We appear to be coal darken by ash But with so many years of pressure we became diamonds Ready to strike We are the vein cut open The red, working for the gold Deter the tyrant We can win, Rise up against the guards Fight for our voice Our suffering will not go on You'll know what it's like to purge from your sins So many years of pain So many lies gilded with hope So much death and decay This will not go unheard Deter the tyrant He'll know what it's like to cease to exit Fight for our voice Fight for our freedom There must be a way

Narcissus

A snow white flower shines in the soft light of a silent meadow. The words that you speak I shall forever echo. A lost love in the dark of the night. They all look your way, but are you blind? Can you not see the beauty of me? I echo your words, I echo your call; can you not hear the silent voice of me at all? I cannot whisper your name, my voice is gone. Silent I shall ever stay, until you speak again. My laughter shall sneak from my lips, until the last word has been spoken, Silent shall I stay again. Silver snowflakes fall in the glory of the dawn. My words are forever caught up hanging silently in my throat, strangling, dangling horridly on my cold lips. A mirrored reflection stares coldly back at you. The water paints a beautiful picture, golden and shining in the crystal spectrum. Will you fall to the hopeless masterpiece inside? Don't give into the lies that haunt your mind, can't you see that you're beautiful again? Beautiful until the end. You see me standing, afraid to think; so you speak. Can I echo your name? Can't you see that I'm afraid to breathe tonight? I'll always recall your words. With you, I shall never be alone. I won't let you go, though your desire is to be gone. In my heart you will forever live on. Farewell you bid unto the world. Farewell I echo to you. I choke in the invisible tears. The reality kills me as I drink in the truth of my deepest fears. Why Narcissus? Why my true love? Why you? Silver snowflakes fall in the glory of the dawn. My words are forever caught up hanging silently in my throat, strangling, dangling horridly on my cold lips. A mirrored reflection stares coldly back at you . The water paints a beautiful picture, golden and shining in the crystal spectrum. Will you fall to the hopeless masterpiece inside? Don't give into the lies that haunt your mind, can't you see that you're beautiful again? Beautiful until the end. I found a flower near the enchanted pool. You placed it there for me, didn't you? Forever the echoes cry out in my mind. Farewell Narcissus, until we meet again. Farewell, I'll see you whenever my time here comes to an end. Farewell, we shall be together again.

Worth Fighting For

Walk of fame,
Walk of shame.
But what is it really worth?
If we win,
We only live to fight again.
If we lose,
Then it was worth fighting for.

Road to somewhere,
Road to nowhere.
But what is it really worth?
If we win,
We only live to fight again.
If we lose,
Then it was worth fighting for.

Sea to shining sea,
Tree to rotting tree.
But what is it really worth?
If we win, 
We only live to fight again.
If we lose,
Then it was worth fighting for.

    "Songs in the Wind"
a marvelous tune
    The 60's produced some

   The flute, and ah - the vocals
Dance in one's mind

It is still there blowing warm from the South
  The wind sing songs

The Ballad of Boy and the Moon

Once upon a time on the eve of late May,
awake in his bed a young boy did lay.
On the verge of deep sleep but not yet quite gone,
he closed his eyes and let out a faint yawn.
He glanced out the window, what did he see?
Whatever he saw brought him great glee.
What he saw would make even the prettiest girls swoon.
What he saw was the face of old Mr Moon.

He jumped out of bed, looked out the window once more,
then he ran down the stairs and straight out the front door.
He followed the moon for an hour or so,
they pranced and they frolicked in the new-fallen snow.
They laughed and they played and indeed had much fun,
till the moon spoke the words “My time has come.”

“Must you go O moon, will you perish and die?”
With that Boy sat down and began to cry.
“Hush Young One, do not worry or cry. 
You need not fret Dear Child for I surely won’t die. 
Now you must wait through the long hours of day, 
but when night comes, again we will play.
I now must go and you too should leave,
till tomorrow Young Child, please do not grieve.”

“Goodbye Mr Moon, goodbye and goodnight.”
He then watched the moon slowly drift out of sight.
He yawned a strange yawn, mixed with a sigh.
Then his mouth formed a smile and he closed his eyes.

Suddenly Boy woke up in bed,
he rubbed his eyes and scratched his head.
The feelings he felt so real they seemed;
Did it actually happen or had it all been a dream?

The Passionate Poet to Alicia Keys

 Come live with me and be my love
You'd see my heart is open
There has never been a greater love
Nor greater words have been spoken
 
If you'd stand by me your feet will never ever tire
I'd carry you on like a carriage two horses and four tires
I'd take you to a place where everyone will adore you
But I push play like remote controls so only I could enjoy you
 
Let you express your love for me and I'd listen and I'd listen
Your words are gifts to a thirsty soul, and this is Christmas
Let you lullaby me to a place safe as a critter in a willow
We'd get dizzy eyed, but it's alright, you can fall to sleep on my pillow
 
Pain is rare when you're around 
I got that of joy from you
If you sat up on a cloud
I'd risk the fall just to touch you
 
What's old is classic what's new is birth
That's all I can think of
You are Mother Nature to my earth
Come live with me and be my love

A CASTLE HEARTSTONE MYSTERY

A beautiful girl was born
In secret...
On a spring night
Just before dawn
 
A girl, so fair
A girl, so pretty
Your heart would melt
 
As she grew
Everything she touched
She loved too
The inner peace
Made people turn and sigh
 
In the depths of the Castle
She was kept secret
For the mother knew
The humilation and pain too
 
For the child,
a father was not known
For the mother,
she carried the secret
In her aching heart
On her face, the pain shown
 
The father, so they say
Handsome and charming
Took her heart
Took her love
Then went away
 
A girl, so fair
As beautiful as the day
Often wondered
Of the man
Who took her mothers'
heart away
 
Her mother in despair,
died
A broken heart
No one could repair
 
The girl,
such sorrow
Yet everything 
She touched
She loved too
 
A girl, so fair
Accepted with innate grace
the loss
She could bare
Serenity , upon her face
 
Abeautiful child
Bcame a woman
Eerything she touched
Se loved too
 
On a  spring night
Se must find
Te man who helped bring her ,
in to this world
Eerything she touched
Bcame light
 
Se sensed he was near...
Smething in the wind showing
Whose ripples she could hear
Her fair hair,  blowing
 
A fair wind came
Warm and sweet
from the South
A Prince to meet
 
A South Wind Prince confessed
A daughter to love
A girl, so fair
Everything she touched,
was blessed
 
A tale of love spurned
A mothers' despair
A daughters' love returned
A girl, so fair
Averything she touched
She loved too
With a heart,

A CASTLE ROSE

The sun clothed the castle in gold
Before twilight
Magic to behold,
in the time before night
 
Such a colour to inspire...
A rose...
The colour of sunfire
 
The Faeries at twilight...
To make a rose, so beautiful
It would shine under starlight
 
Such a delicate bloom
Soft as a babys' cheek
Magicked by Faeries
A Summer Queens' perfume
A rose to seek
 
Emerald leaves glowed
Wrapped a rose
The colour of sunfire
In a walled garden,
that the Faeries showed
 
The Sunfire
Such wondrous light
A Faeries desire
Illuminated the garden
To Heartstones delight

The War Part 3

EVENING

Corpses and torsos lay on the disvirgined field, some have lances on there 
heads
Some bayonets on their hearts, some sabers in their stomachs.
Blood flowed like water. Lucky ones groans
But they are killed by the other wounded enemies
The cloud turns red. More still to go.

They wait for whom to attack first, the opposites did
They never touched their artilleries when their bombardiers did
Guns danced in the air, hands up, heads up, mouths up all down.
Their artillery returned fire, the same happened
The opposite had more arms, the killed more.

It was now time for the royal armies.
Each sides commanded by the Field Marshals.
White horses took to the fronts the whole army at the back
Seeing their Field Marshal’s Very Light the horses moved
The clashed was not ordinary. It was spiritual.

Heads rolled in the air legs and arms dance alone
For an hour the war came to its peak.
Artilleries were fired, square where made
And the cavalry moved like stampedes
The war was now disorganized swords were drawn.

Swordsmen reined while musketeers failed
Ten thousand men all dead of a course side will have to win
It was only a difference of hundred men. 
The reason for war?
A princess who is now married to a charming peasant.

The visitor

Like a dream she comes
 Just a woman to some
But to me
 Her sight warms the cold of night
Like a dream
 Distant it seems
In the midnight hour
 I see this flower 
I know I care
 This dream I share
These words I write
 You come tonight
Please believe
 Only a vision I see
Like a dream 
 We see what tomorrow will bring
Thank you Lord for sights I see
  Day and night you bring to me

Melodious Sound to a Harmonious Beat

Dang I can hear it,
I can hear it again and again,
And I’m stuck this time around,
Thinkin bout a harmonious beat,
Matching to a melodious Sound,
Taking my nerves to another height,
Far beyond sight far above ground,

And its this harmonious beat,
Matching to a melodious sound,
Lifting me from my seat,
Taking me to another height,

And I know that she can feel it too,
Because its like,
A to the word attraction,
The other half to a fraction,
Leading to my hearts satisfaction,

And its this harmonious beat,
Matching to a melodious sound,
Lifting me from my seat,
Taking me to another height,
Making me feel like the doves,
Flying together,
As though they’re a pair of gloves,
Flying together in near perfect harmony,
Making me think we could be,
With her safe in my arms,
And her keeping harm from me,
Except I’ll have to see it,
I’ll have to be brave,
I’ll have to come up to her,
And be the caveman without the cave,
Because I can hear it girl,
And it’s like,

This harmonious beat,
Matching to a melodious sound,
Lifting me from my seat,
Taking me to another height.

THE STAINED GLASS WINDOW

I dreamed of light.. 
To fall.. 
A window.. 
To reflect.. 
Filled with colour 
Filled with nature 
A breathtaking sight 

To capture an age 
Of a Queen and King 
Eagles too 
Stream of Sighs 
Faeries with gossamer wings 
A Heartstone, true 

When dawn rose 
The window glowed, 
with soft light 
Kings and Queens 
Trees and birds 
Stars from the night 
The colour flowed 

Sunlight pierced through 
A stained glass window 
In to world, 
we both knew 

I dreamed of light, 
that filled a Shadowfire hall 
Filled my heart with colour 
I stood in the centre of it all

The pearl of friendship

At the beach of desperation
On the shore to endless sea
Stood a helpless dreaming creature
Searching in the sky was he

Looked with blind eyes full of sorrow
As a man with tears must be
To a falling shooting starlight
That felt down to waving sea

But when star and ocean contacted
Colorful the night became
amazing was the newborn fairy
away from any knowledge’s frame

Unbelieving this new marvel
spoke the fool with stumbling words
tried to please the laughing pixie
but his lips were hold with cords

If there was one wish for free
He would like to stay for ever
With this kind and pleasant vision
Of a world he dreamed of never

No! For bad luck sank the starlight
Down to dark seas frosting ground
As a mermaid swam the fairy
And he lost what he had found.

But far away from reaching hands
The light embedded in a shell
And transformed to pearls of friendship
Known - by everybody well.

Do not try to cage a fairy
For she just leaves you for good
And will show her pleasant closeness
More than expect any should.

Who Can Quench These Sights of Tomorrow

It will be evident too 
much in our sober 
confidences,
Trusting all we needed 
and to our little yatch 
turns,
Making room for so much 
creativity and learned 
respect,
Grace for tommorrow 
and our hope's needed 
leaps to be in reality's 
endform,
The signs are true...thus 
the times were hard.

Above earth's schemes to 
life, 
Placing mysteries in little 
"Salient-Natural-Things" 
that came-by to salute a-
halloo and 
balloo, 
Pacingly..Here is what we 
call thinking Old eyes...Still 
thinking...
"Salient Minds"....Reality 
linkings,
A Dreamy Phase...A 
Dreamy Phrase...A Sinking 
Haze,
This dreamy paraphrase.

Lets "Rock" on Basses 
and Sambas,
Lets lighten on Cymbals 
and the Guitars,
Lets level on "JAZZ and 
SALSA",
Lets happen to travel on 
pure white Dragons and 
More,
The fumes of the 
Lotus...Say while travelling 
along with salient minds 
along the banks 
of Tommorrow in whited 
yatchs and more,
Jack's bean stalk and 
sundry linkings,
Cleanliness another fitting.

LISTEN

                                         Have you ever closed your eyes
                            And retreated to the stillness of your heart 
                                        Allowed yourself to dream
                                        To wonder who you are
                            Your soul will whisper it's desires
                         If you would only take the time to listen
                                     Life is all around you
                            It is in the rustle of the leaves 
                          As they carry a gentle breeze
                         In the sweet song of the birds 
                            As they flit from tree to tree
                      Today I think I will take some time

SHADOWFIRE CASTLE

On a mountain called home 
A mountain gave its' ground 
The Shadowfire 
That lies in its' heart 
In you... 
in me 

The colour known only to you 
The colour reflected within its' walls 
Through vaulted ceilings 
Bastions of stone 
Flying buttress 
Turret and spire 
This the castle known as... 
Shadowfire 

To look upon the sky 
See the silouette 
Tall spire 
Rising from a mountain 
An eagle to fly 
A castle high 
Shadowfire

The crow

The crow:

Her old tired body falls to the sturdy bench as she inhales with difficulty. Faintly her heart beats, slowly her blood circulates.

“With age I die by the day.”
Her ancient voice rings.

Through the ravenous night a single crow lands at her feet.
Her wise eyes smile as she gazes at the dark bird before her.
“Crow has no sense of time, lives in the void having the ability of past, present, and future at the same time.

Have you come for me then, my keeper of the souls?
Or is this a trick you have conjured with wild coyote?”

Silently the crow flies onto her lap and gazes deeply into her sickly round eyes. Inside the bleak of his pupil the women sees a light.

No trick or illusion, just the purity of afterlife.
Her wrinkled hands caress his silken feathers as their eyes mirror each other.

Carefully the crow absorbs the old Indians soul and takes flight, cawing in the dead still of the night.

Symbol of creation, healing and protection the crow is the keeper of the souls

The Creed In this Heat of Confusion...What Do I Do

I.
Astronomical Ups and Downs,
Chronological In and Outs,
Agronomical Tractors and their Marijuana Out-fits,
Egocentrical Monks and Perverts,
Economical Charts and Cost pricing,
Methodological Costs and Expenses,
Sociological Frosts and Warm kindness,
Grease on my coat,Row this damn boat,
Can God's Clay Decay,
Can Ants learn to play in the Sunlight,
We must all roast and eat Vampires toasted in bread and salt.

II.
Madhatters have learnt to  Drink Malt,
Five year olds have learnt to Drink more than one bottle of Beer,
You must have an eye for these and more of your roasted swine-in-Chilli 
peppers,
Leave my colonies to be manned by my faithful and well trained Monkeys,
I will lead the assault for Rome,Paris and your little Malta,
I will sit and wait for the sun to Fall Asunder,
The day Bread never wants to called a Consortium of Crumbs,
Angels will come fetch your Rare Flowers...Oh! Cupid,
Your cup has drunken you stupid,
We are here for the big Fight sheath all Swords...Draw and shoot off your filthy 
barrelled guns.

The Healers Heart / 2001

The healer strove to mark the place
to walk with heart in hand. 
She placed her foot upon the path
and walked ‘pon ochre sand.

Her head was high, her gaze direct
the path before her steep;
to her goal with chattering teeth
the healer’s eyes did keep.

She went within the darkness deep,
earth's core she did explore;
with heart hearth lit and good intent
she visited earth's core.

The Mother had oft seen her there
and gifted her each day,
with lava, light, and wet warmth
the Mother watched her play.

Still, now the healer knew the truth,
a truth she must absorb.
Father lived in hearths held on high,
He was another force.

And, if the healer was to grow
help others come this way
she must go forth, rise, absorb
the upper light displayed.

With trembling lips and fearful sighs
on she purposefully strode, 
this child of clay, of lava formed,
to Father’s bright abode.

And, as she rose above the clouds
into the firmament
she lost her shape, as child of earth
gained oneness in ascent.

No boundaries now held her form
except His loving grace,
this cherished child of mud, of clay;
she took her solemn place.

“Light or Dark, neither good nor bad,”
a choice the Father said.
a place for all, a purpose too
and lessons learned instead.

So, the healer turned to earth
upon that golden day. 
She’d learned the joy of dark and light
found wholeness, in this way.

The Premonition

a heart ache i felt
before the start of the day
a premonition i felt
what is it, i could not say

turns out it came true
turns out almost everything went wrong.

my results turned upside down
all my best reputations are gone

my chance to earn some money is not allowed
it was not a chance for me to earn

because i did nothing in the end
because every blessing will go away with a burn

it is sad that the premonition was confusing
it was sad that i could not see what it was supposed to be

it was too bad that the reality happened unexpectedly
until it happened, the event is what i will see

the premonition was unexpected,
i was only able to feel

'It's A Cold Night - Cowboy'

I was driving home in my Pick-up
When I saw something Strange…
… a Cowboy Sat atop His Horse
Calling Someone’s Name

He trotted on the Moonlit Trail
The man’s Face, held no Shame
As Tears were rolling down His Jaw
I saw this, Very Plain…

I could tell He was A-Hurtin’
Something was Mighty Grim
I pulled up slowly Beside
… and I asked Him …

Cowboy … It’s a Cold Night
Why are you out on the Range?
There aren’t any Cattle Here …
And There are no more wild Mustangs

It’s a Cold Night out here Cowboy
For you to take a Ride
It’s a Lonely Night out here Cowboy
With Nobody at Your Side

It’s Somethin’ you never get Used To
You can Fake it… like You Do…
… But It’s a Cold Night out here, Cowboy… Come Inside…
It’s gonna’ get Colder, Soon… You Better Hide…

… At First, He looked at the Night Sky
and then, He Turned to My Face
and Underneath the Shadowed Brim
His Eyes looked Hard and Glazed

He said, “Hon, I’m a Rare Breed
I get Real Lonely in Town
I’m More at Home, where I Roam
and Hear the Wolf and Rattlesnake – Sound

I was Once a Rodeo – Star
Now, I’m just a Wanted Outlaw
And there ain’t Nothing You Can See
That I haven’t Saw …

… except, My Son,
 By my Ex-Wife – Annie
She Married my Once Best Friend, Sam
They Raising My Boy, Will,  to call Him Daddy …

… and I ain’t Seen my dog, Quickdraw
In 10 Days …
… and You Think, This Cold-Spell, Could Bother Me?...”
and then, He nudged His Horse, and Galloped on His Way…

… Well, by the Time, I made it into Town
There was a Real Big Traffic Jam
Police had Blocked Off a part of The Road
and then, I heard… ‘Bam ! Bam ! … Bam ! …

… it was then, I saw the Riderless Horse
Standing Still … but Untied
And The Outlaw, Clutched His Chest
… as He Died  … …

… and the Dog, Quickdraw, was Whining 
by His Side …

It’s a Cold Night out here Cowboy
The Prairie Breeze was Singing
It’s a Bad Night Out Here Cowboy
The Midnight Stars Were Blinking …

They Knew You were Headed into Town
So You could Face a Final Showdown
To try to find some Heat to Warm Your Heart
… was a Cold Night, when You Decided to Depart

Step with me into History
Step with me, to ‘Days of Yore’ Pageantry
Let Time and Mind, March Back Momentarily
Let Mist and Musings … Merge in Front of Thee …

Perchance … Join The Dance and Step Accordingly

 Twirl and Whirl, Do A Bassa’ … then Bow and Curtsy
Forsooth, from the word ‘Court’, comes such ‘Courtesy’
And Tis’ Adamant, for Manners, Donned in Such Finery
Swirling in Silk Gowns, Vests and Veils with Embroidery

… Gemmed-Cloaks, Headdress and Hose, Bedecked in Luxury
bearing Crested-Medallions and Daggers: There is no Subtlety
amid Scented Candles, Flowered Columns and Alcove Settees
and Banquets, where Sweetmeats and Puddings were made Ready

And Nothing Else Matters

I never opened myself this way,
I try to hide my evil everyday.
All of this I can't just say,
My darkened bed is where I lay.
I lived my life without a care,
A place to hide please take me there.
My emotions paint the walls with darkened splatters,
And nothing else matters.

I want to run away never looking back,
Prove all the people wrong talking smack.
But I can't bare to witness this any longer.
Take me to a new home.
I can't find it to care,
A place to hide please take me there.
My emotions paint the walls with darkened splatters,
And nothing else matters.

JULIANA, FAERIE PRINCESS

I gazed upon the trees 
The beautiful trees 
A bramble rose in full bloom 
Framed in a castle window, 
a soft breeze 

Juliana

Soft light fell 
Upon your wings 
I am under your spell 

Soft light fell 
On a day... 
When only a Prince, 
can take you away 

Juliana

Soft light fell 
Upon your wings

Soft light fell 
Upon your wings

You returned to a castle 
Bathed in light 
Faeries and butterflies 
On a day,so bright

Soft light fell 
Upon your wings 
I am under your spell 

In a walled garden, 
of bramble rose and foxglove 
You cannot believe 
Unless you feel 
Deep in your heart 
The soft embrace of love 

Juliana 
Faerie princess 
Soft light fell 
Upon your wings 
I am under your spell 

Oh Juliana!

Soft light fell 
Upon your wings

THE SECRET OF A GOLDEN FEATHER

A feather can fall
Drifting slowly
Through your heart

Such golden whispers
Through your heart
A feather can fall
I heard it drifting
Through skies full and dark

A golden feather
Revealed all
As it turned slowly
Through your heart
A feather to fall

Secrets
In a feather
Soft and light
Golden too
That fell
Through skies full and dark

From a feather
Golden whispers
A secret
Such things drawn
From above
Drifting slowly
Golden love

If you let it fall
A golden feather
For you
For all

So many skies
Full and dark
Yet, you have
The secret
Of a golden feather
Drifting slowly
Through your heart

Your Love Letters

written with pencils
drawn with colours

these are your love letters

they haunt me every night
it feels to be liked

with your love letters

how can i tell you that i just want to be a friend?
how can i not hurt you, a fragile heart that cant understand?

seen from the corners
always spoke with whispers

it is all in your love letters

driving away from you
forcing myself to say that

i cant accept your love letters

its too much for me if i see you break down and fall..
i will take your hand one day but now i cant seem to dream that at all 

maybe i am in love with someone else
maybe i had not succumbed to your love spells

take me away
from your love letters

take me away
from your

just take me away

Low Man Is Due

A low man is due...
My eyes seek reality,
My fingers feel for faith.
Touch clean with a dirty hand,
I touch the clean to the waste.
I fall cause I let go,
The net below has rot away.
And I cry to the alleyway,
Confess all to the rain.
But I lie straight to the mirror,
The one I've broken to match my face.
The fire is so warm,
But nowhere safe from the storm.
And I can't bear to see,
What I've let me be.
So wicked and worn.
So as I write to you,
Of what is done and to do.
Maybe you'll understand,
I won't cry for this man.
Cause low man is due.
So low the sky is all I see,
All I want from you is forgive me.
My eyes seek reality,
And my fingers seek my veins.
There's a dog at your back step,
He must come in from the rain.
But you bring that poor dog in from the rain,
Though he just wants right back out again.
So my fingers feel for faith,
And my eyes seek reality.
So as I write to you,
Of what is done and to do.
Maybe you'll understand,
I won't cry for this man.
Cause low man is due.

And Now … may Troubadour … Spin A Tale, So Precisely
Aye … May Bard, Weave Thee Well, into This Tapestry …

… of Starry Skies, Blazing Fires and Dark Mysteries …
Inside Halls of Castle Walls Built Solidly
Where Banners and Pennants Unfurled Breezily
Come to this Threshold of ‘Once Upon A Time’ and See …

… Here Be:  Glittering Crowns and a Throne of Royalty
Look Upon King and Queen, Sitting In Majesty
… but tis’ not Their Tale, to be Spoken of Verily …
Tis’ of a Maid and Her Knight of Renown-Chivalry …

… of A Silver-Armored Knight, and Cobbler’s Daughter, so Comely

… Twas’ a Masque-Ball, where none knew … Any Other’s Identity
Whence the Knight, took the Cobbler’s Daughter… Adorned as Nobility
Yea … none knew the wiser, behind the Costumes and the Frivolity
… None, except an Earl … who loathed the Knight, Vehemently 

The Earl, wast’ the Knight’s Avowed Foe, in Unmitigated Rivalry
In Jousts, the Earl, could nay Win; for the Knight was best in Weaponry
To the Earl, this wast’ an Affront, to His High-Born Dignity
For the Knight, of Prowess and Fame, was still, Low-Born in Family

… So Upon This Knight, laid the Plight, of Improving His Kin’s Prosperity
To Another, He Had Been Pledged to Wed… for a Wealth-Match Fortuitously
Tho’ the Lady wast’ Fair, The Knight had nay care, saw it as Honor-Bound-Duty
Alas, whence He met, the Cobbler’s Daughter, Beth, Both Hearts bonded Instantly

Now, Both Knew for a Surety, of the Futility, yet still they Loved Hopelessly
Even tried to Forget, whence they met, but twas’ much too much, Melancholy
Many a Fortnight, they did fight … Pangs of Conscience and Substance-Compulsory
But, as it were, each Heartbeat of Theirs, Threatened to Break Terribly

For The Cobbler, had received an Offer for Beth, from One, More Grandly 
So, Neither Family wast’ Abjuring nor Conferring Blessing on Their Unity
But A Love So True and Undying Too … wast’ Worth Any Adversity
… and On Night of The Masque, among Genteel-Guest, They were in Pact, To Marry …

Did You Ever?

          Did You Ever.............?

Did you ever stop to think,then the signals change?
Something in your heart,you're feeling kind of strange.
You run like the wind,to escape from the cage.
History just stops,as you go to turn the page.
Life becomes transparent,as it takes center stage.
Emotions start to change,consumed with all this rage.
Did you ever stop to think,then you can't go back?
Everything just vanishes,then you don't know where it's at.
You think you can survive,but life just rushes on.
Hope there still is time,before everything is gone.
Did you ever stop to think,that change can come to you?
The change becomes perspective,yet wonder what to do?
The world just keeps on spinning,you'd better get on track.
But you've traveled way too far,there is no turning back.
The sorrow just returns,like a sneak attack...........
Your heart becomes heavy,as your feet drag across the floor,
Yet you awaken the next morning,coming back for more.
Did you ever stop to think,what lies beyond the clouds?
Dream states just envelope,hope that is allowed?
There's a face behind the mask,as you're uncertain what you see.
I feel things drift away,it gets harder to be me.......
Did you ever stop to think,what you care about?
Everything important,lies in the shadows of doubt.
The light comes shining in,to start another day.
The things you saw before,you see in a different way.
Did you ever stop to think,then you're mind goes on the blink?
Standing at the edge,the answers on the brink.
The water's getting deeper,as you begin to sink.
But life presents itself,so you take a little drink.
Did you ever stop to think,but then you lost your way?
Intentions that you've sent,don't match the things you say?
You try to look around,but your eyes remain closed.
The answers just illude you,form the qustion that are exposed.
You wander in the dark,but the light is up ahead.
The signals start to change,they go from green to red.
Reaching out to grasp,but it's just beyond my reach.
Much like the waves,that crash upon the beach........

Ballad for Pope Puiu(1)

 If in your veins ,you still hear the horses` silver hoofs,
And the copper moon escapes its smile on the roofs ,
Don't let them go alone as Pope Puiu did before to die :
He watched the empty wall and said his dream was just a lie. 
His sleepy devil darling,
And lots of angels sing…
The song of  Falstaff-Pope Puiu , my dear old mate:
Half is lowing as a mule: grave, grim and obstinate; 
He crushes the dark with white hoofs ,                       
He asks Coco , his brother to stand aloof,
While the fire was consuming their old roof…
The rest is mixture of lullaby and gospel …
The ember of desert slowly trying to spell:
JOB lives in me:
Lonely like a tree…
Coco wore white chilblains after long sleeping on snow.
Puiu wore heartburns ,and other inner wounds that grow…
They knew the ice and rude Siberian wind that froze
The parents` soul, the smiling sun, the rare rose
Of our old recollections with crossed golden swords…
But now, the grass knows a new play upon words:
There my thoughts were turned into stone.
I drink, friend, because I forget things; I feel alone
Like a syllogism burned by the life's light;
Like a hoof of mule crushing the night.
Under the rusty leafage and grass` oppression deep,
The unseen roots, much loneliness and secrets keep.

Sesame Street Buns

The casting crew look at you and their minds go in the gutter 
If you knew their thoughts, it would make you shudder 
Ernie feels left out without his rubber ducky 
Big Bird believes he can lay eggs, he tells himself maybe tonight I will get lucky 
You strut around with your Daisy Dukes to tan in the sun 
Every sees your exposed Sesame Street buns 
Go visit Maria, she has the fix it shop 
Visit oscar and revel in his slop 
Mr. Hooper allows you to run a tab in his General Store 
Snuffleupagist with a snozz like that, I bet he really snores 
Now you have a date with Louise in apartment 101 
He is salivating as he thinks about your Sesame Steet buns 
Watch out J-Lo you have a rival from the backside 
Dirty thoughts cause men to approach a non Catholic Priest to confide 
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new number one 
Hang your head in shame J-Lo the one on Sesame Street has the best buns 
The Count counts the votes over and over all day long 
Bert is on steroids, now he's strong 
Get to the church, the wedding has just begun 
Grover is marrying the one with the Sesame Street buns 
Hearts are broken, she is no longer in the singles scene 
Cookie Monster covers his depression with cookies and cream 
Within a month they are divorced 
Not surprised, they are celebrities of course 
She is now used goods, everyone is stunned 
J-Lo moves in to the neighborhood to claim the title of Sesame Street buns

Double Vision

I see another without a mirror...

Both the same that is clear...

How can it be ???

Curly locks and same eyes I see...

Tall yet both matched in size...

Is it real or lies ???

The time on earth the same...

Identity stops there, is it a game ???

Genes split away...

Twins today !

Grains of Sand

              Grains of Sand..........


Grains of sand,pass through the hourglass,
The present gives way,becoming the past.
Time to get up,make myself heard,
If there's no one to listen,what good are the words?
Trains clatter by,on their way to tomorrow,
Try to buy back,what I used to borrow.......
All of a sudden,it goes off the tracks,
I can't stand the sight,so I just won't look back.
Planes grab their wings,they take to the sky,
They seem to fly,Why can't I?
I just need someone to take me from here,
To hold me in their arms,when the end looks near.
But my heart is still broken,as I shed a tear,
It seems like a ghost,grabbed the wheel to steer?
The grains of sand,continue to fall,
I just turned away,then dropped the ball.
I think of shifting sands,blowing in the sun,
They'll bury you alive,it's time to run.
The changes reveal,what's left of truth,
So much is lost,the innocence of youth.
I see the lines grow bolder,appear on my face,
The journey's of life,are the roads that they trace.
Sometimes so happy,while others quite sad,
Sometimes at peace while others just mad.
I think of myself as I start to grow old,
I don't always believe,all that I'm told........
I just found my place, now it's been sold,
Maybe there's another,just up the road?
The journey's been long,memories are grand,
Sometimes it feels,like I stand in quicksand.......
I don't think I'll ever,be able to escape,
And if I do,will it be too late??????????
The time is at hand,I just can't wait,
Just like a fish,that has taken the bait..........

FAERIES, FORESTS AND FIRELIGHT

The coming of the night

Soft glow of gossomer wings

Dark shades of green

Of Faeries, forest and firelight

 

The dance at the end of twilight

Amongst the trees

Of Faerie song

Of forest and firelight

 

Golden flashes in the night

Of blue

Green and red

Amongst the trees

Of Faeries, forest and firelight

 

Faeries delight

Of embers

Soft and red

As they danced

In forest and firelight

 

Glitter bright

Amongst the trees

Of moonbeams

Silver star fire

Of Faeries and firelight

 

Whispering trees looked upon

In shades of green

Faeries ‘ dance

In firelight

Of magical things seen

Magical colours shone

 

The coming of the dawn

Pink promise

Soft embers and firelight

Faded away

Faeries flew

and began another day

I Can Finally Drive

My bicycle days are through 
Please help me spread the news 
I no longer have to be a 32 year old hermit 
Mom and Dad got me my permit 
I just bought a car that seats 5 
Thanks to my parents I can finally drive 
Mom goes with me and my girlfriend out to eat 
Mom rides shotgun, my girl in the back seat 
While we are eating with live entertainment 
My girlfriend expresses how she doesn't like the car's seating arrangement 
So my mom drives and my girl is shotgun 
Now I am the lonely one 
We drop off my girlfriend and I ask my mom to remove the knife 
She says stop complaining, now you can drive 
The next night my Dad goes out with me and my buds 
We want to sit back and suck down a few suds 
Not on my watch, my Dad says 
My night out with the buds was disastrous 
After one beer, my Dad says you are too drunk to get behind the wheel 
He has no idea how this freedom of driving makes me feel 
My Mom and Dad are smothering me, my social life will never survive 
With them around, it look as if I will never truly drive 
Now it's Mom's turn to escort me, guess where we go 
My girl and Mom in the front seats, we stop at Domino's 
We all three sit in the car and wait for the pizza to get done 
Mom says no a/c, let's enjoy the sun 
I begin a waterfall of sweat 
Mom says look at you, you're all wet 
Mom asks for extra napkins when the pizza is delivered to the car 
Mom says tonight is Friday, let's park by the lake and enjoy the stars 
At the lake, I will drown myself, if I take a dive 
I am going back to the bicycle, I will never again attempt to drive

CHRISTMAS CAME ON A FROSTY DAY

Soft dawn light... 
Broke in the east 
Pink and red, 
in late December 
Christmas came on a frosty day... 
What I can remember..... 

This time, so long ago 
So many years passed by 
Yet, I remember 
The cold winter in that December 
The geese long since gone south 
Honking cry, 
in an Autumn sky 

I was a merest wisp of a boy 
All I ever wanted.... 
was that toy.... 
I was seven... 
You know... 
On that frosty Christmas day 
Back then.... 

Cold winters, come and go 
I am old ,you know... 
Yet, I remember that Christmas 
On a frosty day, 
back then.... 
In deep snow... 
I was seven.... 

Most of the family have passed on, 
gone to heaven 
I remember how the candles shone, 
long ago 
I am old , you know.... 
I was seven.. 
Then... 

We were poor, you know 
back then... 
Long ago 
I was seven... 
A mere wisp of a boy 

I am old now, 
but I still remember 
My favourite Christmas... 
My favourite toy.... 
I was seven 

Christmas came on a frosty day.... 
Like so many since then 
I still have that toy... 
By my bed 
I am eighty seven, 
you know... 
and still a boy.....

OF TAPESTRIES NOT YET MADE

The whispering trees

Shed some leaves

Upon a wind that blew

To a castle door

A message for the Summer Queen

Of tapestries not yet made

Or the reason for

 

The Summer Queen

Gathered every single leaf

Blew a kiss to the whispering trees

Closed a Castle door

Took the Great Winding Stair

To her chamber

To begin  ….

The Great Forest Tapestries

 

Leaves of every colour

Every shade

Of bark and bough

Through the seasons

Of tapestries not yet made

 

The Summer Queen

Touched all the leaves

They came from one tree

In all its’ life

As a seed

Sapling

Mature

Tall and green

To the end

As an autumn leaf

Gold and brown 

  

The leaves were carefully laid

In a basin of jewelled bronze

A trees’ life in colour and shade

For a Summer Queen to make

Of tapestries not yet made

 

 

Trees of magic never die

They live on tapestries

A soft leaf

Texture of bark

To be seen in the galleries

 

In shades of green

A forest within the Castle walls

Soft leaf

Texture of bark

Of branches unseen

 

You felt the power 

Of a tree

A soft leaf

Texture of bark

Most of all

Its’ heart

In a tapestry not yet made

Burden In My Hand

I was coming down the mountain,
Run away children.
Everybody has their own opinion.
Holding it back hurt so bad,
Jumping out of my flesh and I said...

Follow me into the desert as thirsty as you are,
There's no station to fill the tank so do not drive your car.
Cause down below the truth is lying beneath the river bed,
So just close your eyes and bow your head.
Pain is suffering the torment of blood He shed,
Fall to your knees and drink the water that flows under her head.
I lost myself below the tree,
Would you cry for me.
I left everything deep within the sand,
Its just a burden in my hand.

Spill No Tears

Spill no tears for the years we've spent, have been good ones,
Shed not a tear because each day I've spent in the sun,
Do not weep, weeping willow for this love, do not cry for me,
Because I give myself freely, and I have no broken heart,
Lonliness is no more my love lies within me,
I gave myself to no one else this to the envy,
I shared not a day in anyone's arms, I've not enjoyed his charms,
I've kept my love warm, I've kept my love from harm,
If I am  in love where does this love live?
Will it give itself to me freely , if it should pass this way,
I'll speak not a word , I'll utter not a sound,
Your touch will overwhelm me , time alone will tell,
In the hours I've spent alone, I've written on the walls I climbed,
As my love sat on a shelf,
Your love will comfort me it will soothe the ache,
It will give to me and take the emptiness away,
Each night as I slept alone I dreamed of being someone more,
Than someone without anyone to love but,
Spill no tears , do not weep for me weeping willow,
The tears are on my pillow  I have cried them all,
In a dream about your love...

HIGH SUMMER AT CASTLE HEARTSTONE

When Spring turned in to a Summers day 
The Summer Queen returned to play 

High summer........... 
The warm days...... 
Wind sighs......... 
Blue butterflies.......... 

The King of Water ,happy to see 
The Summer Queen 
For, the water blue............... 
Loves the deepest green 

How the trees and flowers grew 
The wand of the Summer Queen , 
touching all 
How beautiful the holly bushes....... 
By the Great Hall 
The birds and butterflies flew 

Through the Whispering Trees 
The sound of the lark.............. 
Floated on the breeze 

High summer........ 
Sunny days 
The joy of life, 
continues to amaze 
Castle Heartstone........... 
amidst golden haze 

The King of water and his Queen........... 
Renewed their love in the Great Hall 
The Heartstone looked on.............. 
How the sun shone! 

The Tapestries knew.......... 
The love so true........ 
The colours showed......... 
the West wall glass, glowed 

The Castle grounds........ 
Filled with colour and sound 
The summers' symphony 
The birdsong all around 

But alas! 
Summer cannot last.............. 
For, on the horizon 
Autumn leaves cast, 
thus begins the circle again

THE BURNING BLUE

The strangest things 
That life can bring 
The fire flowing 
My spirit slowing 

This desolation............. 
This rocky desert........... 
My imagination 

The deepness inside......... 
Can show........... 
The flame glow 

The burning blue.......... 
Inside of me 
I know it too............. 
What I see........... 

The empty me......... 
This desolation.......... 
Rocky desert 
As far as the eye can see 

The burning blue 
Inside the empty me 
What I can see........... 
Flickering too 

Tiny blue light 
Refuses to go out 
Blow with all my might 
Tiny blue light............. 
Shines on through the night 

Flickering blue light 
The end in sight 
This tall blue flame 
Now on the wane 

The burning blue 
The strangest decisions 
Life choice........ 
Blue flame......... 
Blue voice.......... 
Where I came.......... 
Burning blue.......... 
Burning through 

I see me .............. 
At seventeen 
Making the world turn 
This blue fire 
Begins to burn 
Flame keen 

The boy of seventeen 
The burning blue 
Flame keen 
I know what I must do 

The man of four decades 
The burning blue 
Flickering flame fades 
What to do 

These impossible things to do 
Burning blue 
flickering too 
What am I to do ?

The middle phase 
The burning blue 
Forgotten blaze 
I know it too

lucifer

i met lucifer walking back
to my head this morning,
he was shaking the hand
of the sun in the morning,
his hands red-stained
of child's blood.

i asked him "why?"
"because i shouldn't have"
i asked him "why?"
"because they wanted me not to"
i asked him "why?" 
"because they have no life"
i asked him "why?"
"because their life is my life"
i asked him "why?"
"because the rules of the weak
are food for the strong, 
because it covers them"
i asked him "why?"
"because those dead are closer 
to life than those living"
i asked him,
his hands
wet with red,
"why?"
"because all that's good 
wants to keep you static"
i asked him "why evil?"
"because change is necessary,
revolution, digestion, destruction"
i asked him "give me life"
he said, his hands dripping red,
"it is taken."

the hole in my belly
that my soul had filled
is as wet with red
as i watch the sun rise
on the death of my death.

To Live Life In Flight

Circling things running threw my mind
Feels like I’m running on empty at the same time
Why must life be like this?
Just let it go, let it flow, place it with the rest
Of stuff that has you all caught up inside
Open the window and watch the tide subside
What makes you happy is your own special sight
Spread your wings as you decide to live life in flight.

BALLAD.

Go saddle me the black black steed
For I am going on a long long journey
Go wipe away the tears that roll
Across brawny cheeks of gypsie lassie.

Fifteen well made men going on their steeds
To get their brides leap over the strand
The brunt hills in search of a namer
Drying fast to justify conscript of land.

Twilled with a broach and a ring wintry
The death stalks the hill with sickled moon
The leaden sheen on the steed’s back
Has turned the night’s face into a roon.

Late late yesterday I saw the moon
Full bodied like a new sickled maned
The death will stalk these streets tonight
And am afraid of downy owl’s nickled bane.

Come on fair ladies hang your hair down
Over the fair head over the abordour
The fifteen men have gone to castle waste
And along came the death to devour.

Go saddle me the black black steed
The merry castle keep has hovelled a cry
Though death stalks every haste and waste
And brawny cheeks of gypsie have gone dry.

A PAINTING MADE FOR ME

A beautiful sun...
A painting made for me
If colours were words...
They would soar like birds
In a sky made for me
 
The heart knows
The colours I see
For, I feel them
In a painting made for me
 
A sunset
The colour of honey
Washed away
Tumbling clouds
In a painting made for me
 
Dusklight
In a sky made for me
I saw
What I felt
In a heart made for me
 
A beautiful dying sun
A painting for me
Tumbling clouds
Soaring birds
On a silver sea

Boondocks Or Sticks

I went to visit Elroy, Emma, my nephew and niece
In a town where all residents are missing some teeth
The name of the town is Boondocks or Sticks
I finally arrive and am greeted by my nephew and niece, their names are Hominy 
and Grits
Boondocks falls in the state of Georgia and Sticks falls in the state of South 
Carolina
The residents could not decide which name would be finer
The annual vote always ends in a split
I believe it will always be Boondocks or Sticks
This town has a single chair barbershop
The peppermint pole uses too many kilowatts
Last time it was used
It blew the transformer, the town was left with no power, dazed and confused
There are new rumors going around
A Dollar General is coming to this town
I wonder if I turned on the peppermint pole would the town\'s lights begin to flick
There is no other town like Boondocks or Sticks

Wishes from Angels

Before my fallen wings I plead
Let me carry out this deed
Find a love in desperate need
Of a white knight on a steed

I already have a girl in mind
Are souls have met forever bind
Lost in chaos, torn in time
She is my melody for this rhyme

If you let me lover her now
I'll go into the lights shroud
Commiting no unspoken vows
Salvaging a princess leaving proud

In her unrest she might die
I feel compelled to save a life
There is no reason or a why 
She can't be happy as a wife

A guarding angel I am to her
Send me to your beautiful earth
To enter a chance for rebirth
I am the remedy for this curse

I am speaking to the grim reaper
I need a miracle before I sleep sir
Letting you chase me creeper
Into the darkness ever deeper

Permit me to adjust my sails
Select a crew that never fails
Live through all the grails
Have a romance found in fairy tales

(her)He must be big and strong
Massive shoulders to carry on
The work that's hard and long
To keep me safe and right the wrong

I am sad to be like this
Crying moping and drawing a fist
To the sky, screaming a list
Of my problems little priss

Out of the shadows he came 
Bearing white, massive the same
Hushing me to comfort and explain
His business here, also his name

(Angel)My name is Micheal a worrior man
Here to change your coarse of plan
Bestow upon you an awakening fan
That keeps alive with a tan

Escape with me out of this place
Hurry, run, lets make haste
You'll remain dignified and chaste
Where no one can hurt your darling face

We could live somewhere exotic
Live the dream with love erotic
Just be us, excluding the chaotic
To decline is said to be idiotic

Grab an extra shirt and pants
We'll leave right now, expose this chance
To take hold of something with a glance
Of humanity with a slight reminisce

(girl)Alright, we can go
Somewhere warm minus the snow
Sleeping by the fires glow
Seeing more than we know

Somewhere I can where a dress
Running wild without the stress
Enjoy having emotional sex
With a man big in the chest!

(Micheal)You have made the right choice
I admire your sweet tone of voice
The way you walk and your poise
This is our moment relax, rejoice!

To this day I do enclose
A vacation that I propose
You could wear little clothes
Pushing away all your foes.

Crushing and deystroying all your demons!

A WEDDING AT CASTLE HEARTSTONE

The day drew near.......... 
Upon the wind, 
so light and fair 
Flowers falling through the air 

The South Wind Prince, 
came to Castle Heartstone 
Wearing a crown.......... 
Shining like the sun 
Gold and bright 
The Prince, spreading the wind 
Warm and light 

The petals began to fall............ 
The measured walk to the Great Hall 
The Crown, shining bright 
The Summer Queen ensuring this day........ 
Warm and light 
The petals play 

The pennants flew, 
a blaze of colour too 
Such joy to behold, 
in Castle Heartstone....... 
The shining gold 

For, The Kings were there....... 
Queens too........ 
Upon the Royal Thrones 
The Crowns, shone bright 
The cloaks glittered.......... 
On this day of wedding light 

The Prince entered the Great Hall.......... 
His hair, so fair 
It glowed in the light......... 
His Crown, bright........ 
To see the Princess.......... 
His heart did fall 

For, the Princess was waiting serenely..... 
At the end of the Great Hall 
Her dress, shimmering , 
with flowers of every colour.......... 
Every hue 
Her hair, plaited around a crown of gold........ 
She was beautiful too 
The Prince joined her, 
proud and tall 

The Great Hall was filled with flower scent 
Blew with a warm wind airy and light 
The Heartstone on the North Wall 
Shone bright.......... 
The Tapestries glowed........ 
For this was right......... 

A union of wind light and flower bright 
The Spring Queen and the Princess of Magic........ 
Created a new orchid........... 
The Wind Flower........ 
This was brought to them in the hall, 
for this was the hour.......... 
The orchids beauty could be seen by all 

They were blessed by all, 
who were in the Great Hall 
The love, showed 
The Heartstone glowed........... 
The stained glass West Wall, 
shone with all its might 
The Tapestries illuminated the night 
Starlight, 
Flower bright, 
Faerie glow, 
Magic to show 

The South Wind Prince, 
carried the Flower Princess out of the Hall....... 
On a wind so airy and a wind so light....... 
The petals fall...... 
The Heartstone,  bright 
Off they went, 
deep into the night 

Castle Heartstone........... 
Filled with joy and love 
The Heartstone,shining above....... 
You are never alone........ 
In the Great Hall........... 
For the power is within us all

Another Year Old

 Another year old..........

I feel much like a ghost today,
Invisible,except,for the things that I say.
Sometimes transparent,then fade away,
Like a wander spirit,just lost my way.
Today it felt like,time has just stopped,
Slipping down slowly,lost my grasp at the top.
Seconds become hours,then the day is gone,
Different words,to a familiar song............
Haunting shadows,from lifeless trees,
Snow blankets the ground,as it covers the leaves.
The daylight grows shorter,then it is dark,
Though the memories live on,inside of my heart.
The cold wind creeps up,sends a shiver up my spine,
I'm left here wondering,as the clock unwinds.......
Everything is gone,it left with the time,
No words are spoken,much like a mime.
Just when I thought,I couldn't take no more,
The wind blew sharply,closed the door.
Looking for shelter,a place to hide,
As I peer through the glass,it's warmer inside.
Winter sets in,and it starts to get cold,
Not all that wiser,yet another year old..........

BURNING HEART, BURNING STAR

I viewed from afar 
the things I saw 
That lay in my heart 
Burning star 

The fire flickers 
Burning star 
Burning heart 

I was there, 
in the cold of space 
My heart 
Laid bare 

The fire flickers... 
The dying embers of my heart 
Burning star 

Such things, 
viewed from afar 
Such detachment, 
burning star 

The fire flickers 
Burning heart 
Burning star 

I reached out to a star 
Say what you mean 
The heart quickens 
The fire flickers, 
from afar

JOURNEY ACROSS THE SEA

Castle Heartstone sank into the mists of magic 
The Princess of Magic, spell cast 
For one day, 
we shall return 
When Faeries can play 
When The Wise Ways, 
will always last.. 

Our enemies will never have.. 
What lies in our hearts 
Wonderful things 
Magic, love 
The colour of the seasons 
What it brings.. 

Masts creaked, 
sails held strong 
A fair wind 
for the Heartstone throng 

The Four Kings, 
having command of the ships 
The Princes, 
the navigators 
for they encircled the world in wind 
Queens, for strength 
Princesses, for love and laughter 
Faeries for, joy 

An ocean , so blue 
Its' light reflected in the Heartstone 
Brilliant fire, 
felt in the hearts of many too 

The night, so clear 
You could touch a star 
The Faeries brought one to light the way 
For, Faeries can, at play 
Illuminate their hearts, 
to all those they hold dear 

Such a Tapestry of Stars 
Only a Faerie could weave 
For, they left the world 
Such hearts , grieve 

Soon, the land disappeared from view 
Masts creaked 
Sails held strong 
A sense of something new... 

The Castle was gone... 
Disappeared by the Princess of Magic 
Its' beauty not to be despoiled 
by those they had foiled 

Hidden in the mists of  Magic 
Castle Heartstone, lost in our memories 
such thoughts detected 
on an ocean , so blue 
in its' light 
feelings reflected 

A King , cannot stop the sea 
Storms blew 
The ships held fast, 
for such things never last 

Beautiful treasures were not left behind 
The Heartstone 
The Tapestries 
The Book of the Wise Ways 
Seeds from the Whispering Trees 
Water from the Stream of Sighs 
The memories you can find, 
for you are not alone 

The Eagles of Heartstone, 
came too 
Upon golden wings, they flew 
High up, above 
The ocean , so blue 

The Swords of the Knights, 
were brought too 
Faerie magic, sometimes not enough, 
to stop an enemies bluff 

The ships were filled with song 
The beginning of the end.. 
The end of the beginning.. 
Hope and love, 
in the hearts of this happy throng 

Days filled with golden sun, 
a little rain too 
Upon oceans of blue 

Each day 
The king of air launched the Eagles 
They soared high, 
to find the land 
that was meant... 
For, magic cannot die

never any peace

you take the seat anyway,
hoping to be caught.
hoping to catch 
someone else as gullible.
you ask yourself if it's worth it
to wait until it wears off.
drink & inspiration 
never leave you any peace.
you ask yourself if it's worth it-
chasing shadows into gutters,
following well-worn trails 
to barroom bathrooms, 
flushing lines that 
were never written.
you wonder if you'll ever get anywhere
asking if anything is ever worth anything.
had you caught the chair as it was full,
had you caught the gutter's shadow,
had you found the few flushed lines,
you'd still be nothing more than
saddlemarks on some caged beast.
you smoke a cigarette outside, 
spitting in the gutter.
if the muse wants anything of you,
you decide she can come find you.
back inside, the jukebox just
clicks for a few seconds 
& a bottle lands on your table
& the waitress, jerking her thumb
just loud enough
over the next song says,
"this here's from that brunette at the bar."

Dissociation

I see a better world that I can use Its far from you And inside me The reality is too much to handle anymore It's a place we all can love A place where all angels dwell Burnt in my mind everything you've done to me It saves me to go away It's my internal prison It's my only safe-haven I'm my mind there is a place That only I can control Your misery will haunt me no more As Long as I'm in my own reality You will be no more It's deep enough where you will never find But open enough to keep expanding I will not be stapled by your dominance anymore This is it i will take a stand A sky with death In it's smile Rolls across the night It seeks to know what is wrong And the thing is you I'm my mind there is a place That only I can control Your misery will haunt me no more As Long as I'm in my own reality You will be no more I'm my mind there is a place That only I can control Your misery will haunt me no more As Long as I'm in my own reality You will be no more I'm my mind there is a place That only I can control Your misery will haunt me no more As Long as I'm in my own reality You will be no more

THE BOOK

I open the door to pleasure, 
to see what I treasure. 
I walk slowly past, 
my hand trailing, 
looking at last, 
not failing 

This towering wall, 
is calling me, 
inviting me, 
planting the seed. 
Urging me to read 
and I answer that call 

These narrow cloisters, 
my hunting ground. 
Seeking that elusive book, 
for I search and look 
for what needs to be found 

No need to explore, 
final frontiers, 
open the book, 
take a look, 
you will see more 

For you travel far, 
in a book, 
further than any distant star, 
go on! take a look! 

Your  imagination travels to a distant land, 
tall mountains, 
rolling sea, 
warm breeze. 
all this,you hold in your hand 

For books are the soul 
in which our imaginations play a role 

Your eyes caress every page, 
the story untold, 
turn the leaf, 
let your imagination unfold 

These books hold, 
terror,fire, 
ice and cold 
also warmth and wit, 
enough for a laughing fit 

A book can hold such emotion, 
touch you deep, 
tighten your grip, 
bite your lip, 
make you weep. 
Such a cocktail! 
Such a potion! 

To change the world, 
for the book wields enormous power, 
my imagination,uncurled 

My speed of thought, 
takes me far, 
further than anything my teachers have taught, 
past any galaxy or distant star 

For the love of books, 
I search crannies and nooks, 
for I will travel,I wage, 
for when I open the first page. 
I do not need to try, 
for I am transported, 
no need to fly 

This book I hold, 
lets my imagination unfold. 
This beautiful thing, 
let its words ring 
and the joy it can bring 

In my book I can be  anything, 
from sea 
to bubbling brook, 
I lose my being, 
I take another look. 

So much to be, 
so much to see 

For what is written, 
you are smitten, 
to travel far, 
past galaxy and distant star

In a misty way

In a land far away

What we have lost today... 
Will be found 
In a misty way 

A land of forests 
In a misty way 
A way will be found 
To find all we have...

A PAINTING MADE FOR ME

A beautiful sun...
A painting made for me
If colours were words...
They would soar like birds
In a sky made for me
 
The heart knows
The colours I see
For, I feel them
In a painting made for me
 
A sunset
The colour of honey
Washed away
Tumbling clouds
In a painting made for me
 
Dusklight
In a sky made for me
I saw
What I felt
In a heart made for me
 
A beautiful dying sun
A painting for me
Tumbling clouds
Soaring birds
On a silver sea

Aquarian Dream II- Leaving Kali Yuga

A glimpse in your gilded eyes Tells me all inside your lieing mind How can you Stand without a spine How can you speak without a will Failed to announce the pain Will they realize the illusion Is it all to late? The lies that are so common Have put up a delusion Infront Of the people's mind So deep away from the dark Will we come when father is coming For us, is it all to late? Soft little messenger I dare you to spread the word About our dying world All come far and near Listen to what we have been waiting to hear The walls have broken down The gates have been breached The Keep stormed in Praise and sing They have killed our king Our conformity is on it's last day All Black Skies have been tainted with grey Our flags are now just tinder The palace has all been burned to cinders Our Empire has fell Praise and sing They have killed our king I see the light of a dawning Age Let a new era begin An Aquarian dream a day where we are all free Inside our minds; our hidden refuge But there's no need to hide perfection Concordia shall be our queen Justice, independence, liberty are our only virtues free to be whoever our heart let's us be Go to the tower, strike the bell Soft little messenger And tell of Victory All come far and near Listen to what we have been waiting to hear The walls have broken down The gates have been breached The Keep stormed in Praise and sing They have killed our king Our conformity is on it's last day All Black Skies have been tainted with grey Our flags are now just tinder The palace has all been burned to cinders Our Empire has fell Praise and sing They have killed our king All come far and near Listen to what we have been waiting to hear The walls have broken down The gates have been breached The Keep stormed in Praise and sing They have killed our king Our conformity is on it's last day All Black Skies have been tainetd with grey Our flags are now just tinder The palace has all been burned to cinders Our Empire has fell Praise and sing They have killed our king

JD And Rock

Getting tired of hearing sad songs 
Tearing out my soul
Just give me a little Jack Daniels
And a whole lot of rock 'n roll
Don't want nothing making me feel sorry
Nothing making me feel down
Just want to get out and party
And rock all over town
So, let your hair down baby
And give up what you call class
Cause all that melancholy 
Is becoming a pain in the
There isn't time to stand and whine
That just leave me cold
So give me a little Jack Daniels, babe
And a whole lot of rock 'n roll.
Gonna fly tonight, out of sight
Where I ain't ever been before
Gonna get all my frustrations out
And scream till my lungs get sore
Gonna shout and yell, and raise some hell
Until the night gets old
Gonna have me a little Jack Daniels, babe
And a whole lot of rock 'n roll.

THE PASSING OF A KING

The Earthen King, 
had the strength of two castles 
One cannot fight the Wraiths, 
build so much 
For inside, 
something was breaking 

The King learned of his mortality 
and knew not why 
As nature changes... 
Some things wither... 
Some things die... 

For, during the fight for the Heartstone 
On the battlements 
The King was wounded deep 
During the dark days, 
he kept this secret 
For, there was much to keep 

A Kings' strength cannot last forever 
A King who built castles of stone 
During his final days, 
had the comfort of his Queen 
and the Heartstone 

The joy of Heartstone, 
tempered with the news instead 
Of a king, 
who lay dying in his bed 

The Faeries gathered round.. 
For, the time is near 
For, the King, they held dear 
The Summer Queen at his side 
With one peaceful sigh, 
he closed his eyes 
and died 

This is the nature of everything 
You cannot mourn, 
what you haven't lost 
The Summer Queen and the Faeries 
Knew this 
For deaths' sting, 
did not leave them forlorn 

The Passing of a King 
A great King 
Whose memories belong on the Magic Tapestry 
A King who built beautiful castles 
With the strength of two 

There were no tears 
Only sweet gentle rain 
The rustle of leaves, 
from the Whispering Trees 
A refrain 

The Summer Queen, 
kept one leaf from his cloak 
She kissed it gently and softly blew 
A west wind carried it through 
to the Whispering Trees 

The Trees took the King 
Made him part of everything 
The passing of the King, you see 
Natures' reason, 
as is the changing season

A CHILDS' BLESSING

Faeries and butterflies 
On an Autumn day 
Sweet lilting song 
The Whispering Trees sigh 

A boy for Autumn 
Leaves of gold and red all around 
A sky, so blue 
A child born... 
A King found 

A blessing from Heartstone 
Across the sea, so blue 
Shadowfire too 

In the Great Hall 
A boy, so perfect 
So true 
A Faeries' blessing for all 

A Spring Queen... 
So serene 
Within her arms, 
she did bring 
An Autumn boy 
A King.. 

Offerings for the new boy... 
A flower from the Spring Queen 
A golden feather from the King of Air 
Water from the Stream of Sighs 
A leaf from the Whispering Trees 
Faerie Dust 
A book from the Kings' Library 

Faeries and butterflies 
On a crisp Autumn day 
The Heartstone glowed, 
for beauty showed

Song For Your Love

Keep your eyes shut
And keep your mind open
And don’t let the world in your way

Just please be silent
And listen for a moment
Just hear the words that I say

‘Cause I fell in love again
But I didn’t mean to 
You must please believe me in this

All that I want now 
Is one hopeful moment
One chance to steal a kiss

It’s all because of
The way that you smile 
And the heat of your eyes on my skin

I just can’t help it
You’re more than I can take
Now if only you’d let me in

But you don’t know

You don’t even see it

But you’ll find a lost sailor
Washed up on your shore
And you’ll find that the sailor is me

THE BOOK OF THE WISE WAYS

The Faeries of Heartstone 
inlaid The Wise Ways 
In a bound book 
In the Kings' Library 

Illuminated words 
So carefully bound 
A journal too... 
Inside, all the names, 
of all the Kings and Queens 
and all who had served before 
Such beauty you never saw 

The opened book 
Warm glow 
Chapters and words 
Spilled across the pages 
Colourful illustrations 
Recording the seasons and ages 

The words 
The love of all things 
The whispering trees 
The love of all seasons 
The love of winds 
The love of starlight 
The love of sunbright 

The chapters unfold 
With colour 
With gold

A MOUNTAIN CALLED HOME

The Kings ,met 
For a home to call 
Must be built, 
before nightfall 

The King of Earth 
with the King of Flame, 
set to work 
For the journey was long 
For a home to be built 
In the mountain 
In which they did belong 

The Faeries flew on ahead 
Through forests 
Over streams 
Rising higher 
Onwards they sped 

You do not choose a mountain 
A mountain, chooses you 
So it was... 
As the faeries found 
The mountain... 
Gave its' ground 

Heartstone Eagles, 
called with glee 
Circling high 
The air, so sweet 
From a mountain, 
that gave so willingly, you see 

The Earthen King shaped the rock, 
in to halls, rooms and stairs 
Turrets and spires 
Creating something new 
The castle... 
Grew and grew 

The King of Flame, 
touched the stones 
Changing the colour 
Drawing out the precious metal 
Locked within 
Mountain rock now gleamed 

A shimmering jewel 
Amongst the deep green forests 
From a mountain 
That gave everything 

A secret path was made 
From the golden sand 
Up through forest glade 
To a castle, so grand 

The Princess of Magic 
Cast a spell 
To hide the secret path 
Only to be revealed to those who uttered the words.. 
The Wise Ways 

The ships were unloaded 
The treasures taken up 
Such precious things, 
once under spell, lock and key 
Could now be displayed for all to see 

Wooden ships, empty and forlorn 
Lay quietly in the bay 
The island hidden from all 
The ships were released , to roam 
An ocean, so blue 
This was their new home

GHOST IN THE MACHINE

Silent...... 
The machine waits patiently 
Dark........ 
In the corner........ 
Like a sleeping cat 

Hidden menace 
That ozone smell 
It knows too well.... 

Dark...... 
Crackle of static........ 
Low hum........ 

Dark........... 
In the corner... 
Like a sleeping cat 
What is it thinking? 
Muted lights .... 
Blinking........ 

The Ghost in the machine 
Malevolent glare 
It knows.. 
It knows, you are there 

Dark........ 
In the corner....... 
Like a sleeping cat........ 
The Ghost in the machine 
Sliding across the mat 

Dark......... 
Changing shape 
Creeping across the floor 
Low hum...... 
Crackle of static 
It's coming............... 
Coming for me........... 

Lights gleam....... 
Ghost in the machine 
I cannot flee.......... 
Creeping feeling 
Shadows stealing 
This is not a dream 
This is now, me.......... 

I have no place to go......... 
Paralyzing dread 
Except inside the machine 
Absorbed instead. 
To become it's host....... 
The muted glow 
The ghost.........

THIS FAIR QUEEN

This fair Queen 
rides in soft golden light 
Only at twilight,to be seen 
Golden hair catches the sun 
This fair queen on the run 

With rippling emerald shawl, 
this fair Queen rides in golden glow. 
Only the faithful know it so 
For, the faithful know it all 

This fair Queen loves her folk, 
her smile, like the sun 
Intoxicating fun, 
the fair Queen can invoke 

This emerald green 
disappears in to the night. 
Not to be seen, 
golden hair, 
golden delight, 
rides far in to twilight. 

This fair Queen, 
bejewelled in green 
Golden hair, 
the like, never seen 

This ethereal Queen 
in gold and green 
Seen by the few 
Those who believe it true 

This magical time 
betwixt day and night 
The clock does chime 
This fair queen 
must ride with all her might. 

To go after sundown 
This fair Queen 
will lose her crown, 
willl never be seen 

For the kingdom of twilight 
the fair Queen rules all 
Bejewelled in green 
Golden hair ,so bright 
The dying of golden sun 
Her work is done 

This fair Queen will disappear 
at the dipping of the sun 
Bejewelled in green 
Only to be seen 
on a snow white horse, on the run 
When the clock does chime, 
at twilight time 

Golden whisper at dusk, 
fleeting flash of emerald green 
Scent of honeysuckle musk 
This golden Queen 
can only be seen, 
by the faithful few 
Who know it is true 

This soft chuckle of delight, 
heard only at twilight 
Tis my Queen 
That can only be seen 
in soft golden light

rebial jesus

forgeting the bad as if i even could in my life
should i sympothise with my friends or be the jerk with a knife

listening to to you make me doubt what you know
it's sad to see this world so vain
it's no wonder we all go insain

look at her look at him i don't think they see
they love each other like god loves you and me
if you ask then it will be told 
the story that is all so old in time
love is based on honesty people are full of vainity.

open up your heart use more than just your eyes
i refuse to live in fear i'm tired of all the lies
when the muck of the world gets you down get away
i've found to get my head off the ground my music is the perfact sound and way
some times the world is so superphishal

you can play sports while your young
but the storied made by the music you play will last a life time
this music is mine this story is mine for life
the most steady of all is my lord the rock to my roll
my sword in every fight my god my lord the bass to the treble jesus is a rebel

THE LANDING

For a full day 
The ships travelled, 
under golden sun 

The cloud came in to view 
The island emerged 
Deep green under a mantle of white 
Instinctively they knew.. 
That this was right 

Nearing the shore, 
they could hear the sound of birds 
See the colours too 
Flocks of macaw 

The ships anchored in the bay 
The Faeries flew, 
through trees and woods 
Exploring too

Everyday Experience

To that of which runs my life
to that of which it runs
I need a place of comfort
where nothings come undone

Can you take these falling pieces
a puzzle of my life
And build yourself my portrait God?
were everything fits so nice

Sing to me oh angels
sing to me through these times
Lift me up with your voice
shut the door on these thoughts of mine

Forever will I be a prisoner?
a prisoner of the pain
Were nothing makes sense to me
were nothings quite the same

This wall is getting stronger 
and I am growing weak
Break the barrier down
To where I can simply speak

I wish to tell you all the tale
of this life that’s split in two
The sun it shines, the moon is lit
which one to which I choose

To the Edge of the World (The Song of Navriss pt.2)

Like a vulture, he came to my hometown,
To my hometown.
Just a little boy, I watched him
Knock upon the old wooden door,
To the old man’s house,
The old grizzled Moor.

In silence, the man in black fled down the old road,
Beside him running silent,
Was the grizzled old Moor.
Behind the two upon a horse,
I rode through the cold.
Through the charred hills, 
Beyond mountains old.

We travelled through lands, where the sun feared to tread, 
And the midnight sun filled my heart with dread.
Still the two, upon dark gossamer wings,
Led me back into the sun,
But it would be many years
Before our journey was finally done.

	Hey you, with the chill in your bones
	Come gather round . . .
	Pull yourself up closely
	Warm yourself by the fire . . .
	Can you feel it?
	
Seasons changed
While the years sailed on by
Still we went on,
Forever on, and on. 
Beneath a sun and moon
Trading places in the sky.
Beyond seas so vast, 
So cold.
Until at last we came,

 
To the edge of the world, 
Where a man now grown up
Can touch the stars.
I stood upon the edge of the place, 
The place they go, their world.
Which is cold, sometimes hot
Beyond the edge of the world.

With my cloak wrapped tightly around me
I followed the man in black, 
Yet behind the old Moor
Into the heart of a darkened land
Where souls yearn to be free.
And my eyes opened wide, 
So eager to see what I might find.

	Hey you, with the chill in your bones
	Come gather round . . .
	Pull yourself up closely
	Warm yourself by the fire . . .
	Can you feel it?
	
Bright coin in my hand, 
‘Twas this I gave to the dead ferryman.
Over black mirrored water, 
Silently we sailed over the Sea of Styx.
Little more than my shadow
I studied the black-dressed man,
Just as he studied the souls beneath the waves,
A spiralling helix.

Upon the far shore
Minos sat upon a throne of bone
With his host of the damned, 
For the grizzled old Moor 
Minos passed judgement severe,
Yet unto black naught was said nor done,
Yet unto me was passed
The cruellest judgement.

I cried for all to hear,
“I am alive! Alive.”
But Minos sat back and smiled
And said, “Oh woe to yea curiosity unfed,
You who had followed black while still very much alive
Shall walk eternity through the footsteps of the dead.”
	
	I pray you heed me well,
	For we are the spirits of regret,
	The souls of the Forgotten
	And we are the ghosts of . . .
	Sorrow . . .

And so I sit,
Beneath the muted stars,
On the edge of the world . . .

A Call To Arms-Volume Two

Here comes some times that nobody wants to see.  Just sitting there watching 
there boxed in tv.  or buying some junker pretending to be HumVee.  But that isn't 
me.  I had a thought that revolved around proper unity.  Where we all stood as 
one until the problems had all gone and there was no need to put into steep 
word this domineering song.  Where did it go wrong, I walked the bible laid road 
and the journey continues on even so it is long.  

But which way to turn which way not to burn.  Is this the way that I must learn, 
which truth I should yearn for, I adore, but is it above this salt lake sea I should 
soar?  So I look to the steps that others had all traveled before.  But close my 
eyes and listen to lies, the truth was heard but hard to ignore all the homeless 
children that only need more.  But who else cares where they do not hear their 
cries streaming down mountainsides and rupturing with the bursting tides.  
Besides, we've got our homes built of clay, and to this I must say, what a dismay 
all this play has brought us today.  

Carry on, venture forth, keep heading north.  Sooner or later we'll get what we're 
worth.  And to the sigh that we must give when an angel walks by.  Hypnotize our 
lives with warnings and signs.  Read between the lines all the lambs swimming 
in the sides.  Hear a voice to make a choice what should happen after we die.  
Don't fear the fear to question the inevitable why.

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

on the batterd shore line
the srteets are dark,dull and mist rolling down the road

hide the lines from your face
not to show your growing frown

and the breaze make whistle in the air
the street light burn with yellow flame
and the stars are high in the sky

youll be older then in summer rain
as you hold your brim hat high

excuse me mam but whats your name

THE PRINCE OF THE EAST WIND

The bringer of rain...... 
The bringer of typhoon........ 
Eastern moon........... 
Arriving soon.............. 

The lover of symbols and numbers 
Gold too.............. 
Awaking the Princess' slumbers 
A rondezvous................ 

For, the Prince of the East 
The great wind to blow 
The power inside........ 
The heart glow,,,,,,,,,,, 
is no trick.............. 
To the Princess of Magic 

The driving wind and rain, 
is not the same.......... 
As the love for all things in name 
The magic flame 
The spark 
Hidden in the dark 
Now revealed to all 
To be seen soon 
In the great hall 

A silken crown, 
bejewelled in gems the colour of sky 
Emerald and rubies too 
Eastern Wind sigh 
The Prince flew, 
towards the West, 
before the sun went down 


The journey was long, 
for the Kingdom lay very far into the East 
With a shower of wind and rain, 
he sped across the plain 
Hearing the call, 
of the Princess of Magic 
To arrive at the Great Hall 

East Wind Prince carried, 
jewels of every hue......... 
Silks and cloth too 
For, the Princess of Magic 
The girl to who he was to be married............ 
A wedding ring 
So beautiful, you could hear it sing 
Borne aloft by an Eastern Wind 

Eastern land......... 
Far beyond Samarkand 
passed desert land 
Eastern wind 
Wind and rain to be felt and seen, 
in the land of intense green

Never Will

Sometimes when I get the blues
I put on my walking shoes
Feeling that the time has passed me by
There’s not a lot that I can say
I just want to get away
Sometimes I’ll just sit alone and cry
I thought that I could settle down
Live my life in one small town
Build a little cottage on a hill
But there’s an open road that calls my name
No quiet times can douse the flame
Settle down, I know I never will.
I still dream of those open spaces
Seeing unfamiliar faces
Going where no one knows my name
Sing my songs and dance my dances
Cross my heart and take my chances
Every day begins a brand new game
There’s so much I want to do
Try it all before my life is through
Couldn’t be happy while I’m standing still
Hopes and dreams I can foresee
The world out there just waits for me
Think about returning but I know I never will.

Kings and Queens

Sun dappled shadows
Reflecting spirit’s form
Moss covered standing stones
From afternoon still warm
The kings and queens of yesterday
Yet hold the evensong
Prayers for peace prosperity
A right for every wrong
With every war that has been fought
Upon these sacred grounds
Run fast the blood of future lives
And yet the drum deep sounds
Calling soul to hold a place
Upon the earth still fair
Stay the sword for truce by might
Lends your grace to bear
A heart that bleeds for all life held
Within the hands of fate
Behold the truth where patterns meld
And time she runs too late
The past and future meet as one
Where power thickens still
And stately folk are seen at night
Still gathered on high hill.

listen to the colors

Inside my head in my brain is a gob stopper 
The candy center can hide my pain
The different colors control me be to be sane
Today I’m sad and blue tomorrow I might be red on fire

Listen to the colors

Imagine playing twister inside your head
Spin a color to effect everything you’ve said

Have gotten so tired that you got wired on caffeine
Then you heard talking in your head
That you not too sure you said

x3 I’m not paranoid 

Isolated in my mind
I’m sure here what I’ll find
This world we live in can be so unkind
Rewind back to what I heard
When I’m alive they try and tell me I’m dead

X3 I’m not paranoid 

The more I think the more I say
Things aren’t supposed to be this way
You feel alone and up tight
When your sunshine day turns into a black night

Racing thoughts turned blood red to stop in my brain dead
As the colors change I begin to numb the pain

A little smoke to keep me sane 

X3 I’m just paranoid

There’s got to be another way.
To calm my thoughts and they say
Smoking this herb can’t be the only answer
My stress eats at my body like a cancer
How do I escape the problems in my mind?

X2 I find I have to talk about it.
 
X3 I used to be paranoid 
Now I’m just annoyed
(Sung slowly to close song) inside my head my brain is just a gob stopper.

the price of love.

Up upon the mountain sits a mighty dragon.
watching the world go by from a castal made of pure gold.
down in the vally below there on a wagon,
sits a maid so fair her beauity is well told.
the mighty dragon truly loves his gold,
it fills his heart with real desire.
but for all the gold he has lost his soul.
for the maid has set his stone heart on fire.
His love for her was driving him insane.
he could not  talk to her as a dragon.
he did not want to burn her with his flame.
He could not tell her he loved her in a love song.
the dragon lust for the the maid was out of control.
So he went to the only one who could help him.
I need to be a man, so I can love and grow old.
He explained to the old witch standing beside him.
Do you know what your asking? she sighed.
I'll give up my magic for a human soul, he replied.
The old witch did her powerfull magic as she cried,
to change the dragon to a man, who could live and die.
High on the mountain sits the mighty dragon king,
in the chair beside him is the maid as his queen.
His happiness came with a high price it seams.
but who needs magic when love can fulfill his dreams.

WHERE DO ALL THE BIRDS GO?

Where do all the birds go? 
Autumn brings rain 
The birds............ 
Gone again 
Before the winter snow 

Where do the birds go? 
Leaving me......... 
All alone.......... 
With a leafless tree 
Birds, flown 
Yet, not me 

Where did all the birds go? 
Quiet flurry of snow........ 
They gave no sign......... 
They didn't show...... 

To follow a sun...... 
The birds....... 
The Autumn rain........ 
Here again.......... 
The birds... 
gone.......... 
One by one 

Where do all the birds go? 
I do not know 
I have no wings, 
to follow........ 
I sit and wait for Spring 
The return of sound........ 
From the air 
Feathered things found........ 
I missed them so 

I do not have wings, 
to take me to the sun 
They left me.......... 
One by one 
My heart no longer sings 
I must wait.......... 
Until winter is done, 
and spring has begun

Beneath Heaven's Helix

~ Oh tender Heaven's Helix, ~

I wait for you on hilltop high!
The morning bulb has just awoke.
How shall you grace today's blue sky?

				The wind comes rushing fervently
				and marks the air with whistling rings.
				It brings forth waltzing butterflies
				with bright prismatic paper wings.

								They whirl about impulsively,
								not knowing that they've formed a line;
								and skipping in a blind parade,
								they twist about transparent spine.

				~ Oh regal Heaven's Helix, ~

				I wait for you by lakeside low!
				The flaming star has dimmed its light.
				What is it now that you will show?

The sky is filled with citric shades
and paints the pool an orange hue.
The pallid plane invites black wings
to dance along a massless screw.

				The pattern of these tainted doves         
				appears to be a braided bow.
				These ravens twirl with drunken glee,
				reflecting in the glass below.

								~ Oh joyous Heaven's Helix, ~

								I wait for you in pasture pure!
								The candle has been blown away
								to aid your luminescent cure.

				A pacifying zephyr lilts
				and from its breath come playful sprites.
				A gathering of fireflies
				encompass me with ivory lights.

They flicker all throughout the night
and cast on me their midnight-spell.
They wildly spin on magic wings,
just like a moonlit carousel.

				~ Oh sacred Heaven's Helix, ~

				I ask of you to bless this day,
				and carry those who choose to stay...
				beneath your fluttering spiral.

A Call To Arms-Volume One

A call to arms has been issued and all the lyrical guns have been reissued
fierce fighting mothers handing out tissues to dab away at media blasted issues 
while the news just labels and cradles out the issues to misuse without paying 
dues and then we all lose yes i said we all lose while fighting towards the end

Because of men riddled with sin i think it's time to begin again with sentimental 
reason to treason. start rhyming again to turn away the seasons.  Why can't you 
stop, can't you see the beacons?  But oh no, hell no, here comes the saturated 
reasons spouting from our deacons to extinguish all the beacons.

A call to arms has beened released from our fathers that are burried and 
deceased.  Oh no, hell no, the wonders they never decease.  While problems 
they steadily increase time to pick a pocket and do away with that lease.  The 
poor man crying while the fat cat continues to fleece us, with mistrust, thinking 
we aren't tough.  but life gets hard and tough, the people they have had enough.  
So all the people they rise up and stand up, can't stop it up or break it up.  

When the crowd starts pumping, and the cities start thumping, with this lyrical 
something.  Maybe the teen mothers wold stop humping, but y'know something, 
when we wake up this has all been for nothing.  Because the city is a monster 
living in dumpsters, with parents in the house yelling at their kids upstairs, no 
wonder the nation is caught unawares.  We're all frightened by the nightmares, 
but do nothing when the beacons start to blare.  Looking up at empty hands as if 
to plead with the starving air.  Oh god, the answer was but now it's gone and I 
don't where.  Not even the gospels that are out there can tell me where.  But who 
cares?  With all the dope selling and the fathers that aren't there.

Asking Questions

She pursed her lips together
and stared into my eyes
She asked me to tell her
what's on my mind.
I try to assure her
that everything's alright
but she knows that deep down
im hurting all the time.

Dark pasts and memories
are breaking barriers in
my head.
And like the deepest sea's
the invade every space and
spread.
She looks at me teary eyed
as she sees me upset
i know she wouldn't lie
but head finds it hard to 
except.

Asking these questions 
and i know it's not fair, not right
and im not trying to start a fight tonight.
Asking these questions
i know it's not fair or right
but i just want this to be alright.

She knows my history as her eyes
dart to the door,
of the hurtful women i knew before.
The wounds still so fresh in my mind
that it makes me break down in tears,
that a repeat performance, and then all
this would disappear.

She smiles at me and i smile back
at the woman who i do adore.
The one who took my heart and won't
drop it down on the floor.
She tells me she loves me and the
bad feelings fade away once again.
I hate that im this way
but i guess this is how i always
have been.

Asking these questions 
and i know it's not fair, not right
and im not trying to start a fight tonight.
Asking these questions
i know it's not fair or right
but i just want this to be alright.
I just need to know we're alright.

The Sufferings Of The Dumb

With the dust whirling round the wheel,
The walls of throat seeming to seal,
In the sun bleached roads of soil-
Ran the feet of the bulls faster with toil.

Their shoulders hath blackened in time's course,
The wooden bar to them like a saw's coarse,
The ribs out of hunger come out as though-
To satisfy themselves with the rays of the yellow bow.

I know not and nor does the owner;
Since when these poor chaps has turned to labourers,
And from whence time's sharp wheel acted sharper to their neck;
Let alone to miserable dreams which it did wreck.

They look at the soil unhindered by any sound -
The sufferings of the blunt labour is the only that's
                                       through them is found.

Were we made humans by our maker -
For this day to turn from cruel to crueler-
To treat the dumb in a way as this-
By feeling of ours which we call to be the deepest feels?

The Cowboy

                 

Her heart was breaking as she stepped into the bar,
This time her cowboy had pushed her just a little too far.
The neon lights seemed to be calling as the music took it its toll,
Pour me a couple of them little shooters I feel I’m on a roll.

The music was inviting as she watched the couples dance,
Until she met this cowboy who held her in his trance.
She still had on her wedding ring as they danced across the floor,
This cowboy had ill intentions as he danced her to the door.

He said let’s go get some air as casual as that,
She said I’m sorry cowboy I just don’t like the color of your hat.
She turned to walk back in but he grabbed a hold of her,
She said you best be turning loose or else you’ll feel my angry spur.

He turned her loose right then and there this girl with golden hair,
When right behind her stood her cowboy whom she’d thought had been unfair.
He said I’ve come to take you home, and I’m sorry for what I said,
But you’re just so gosh durn pretty I git messed up in my haid.

She said you are my cowboy I’ve got my brand on you,
But you’re gonna have to loosen up on them reins when I ask you to.
He said you got yourself a deal I’ll give it all I’ve got,
No more roping or the rodeos cause honey making you happy truly means a lot.

He grabbed up his little filly and sat her in his truck,
And told her that he loved her and with him she was stuck.
They rode off into the sunset,
This story had a good ending so listen don’t you fret.

THE NARROW SQUEAK SHOW!

Not the first time........... 
I cheated death...... 
Last week... 
What a narrow squeak! 

The car narrowly missing me........ 
Yet determined to run me down 
Put me underground..... 
The time was not meant to be 

The airliner crash last year.......... 
me........... 
The only person to walk free! 
So many lost lives 
More than I can bear 

Two months past 
The train.... 
Did I fall or was I pushed? 
My fuddled brain! 
It seems so long ago 
How did I last? 

What a week it's been! 
The wife ,tripped and fell 
Carving knife nearly put me in hell 
What a life! 
Still, I am sure it was an accident 
Her insistence.......... 
That it was pure coincidence 

Now I am thinking........ 
That meteorite 
From five years past 
That landed on my house 
My life,nearly my last, 
as well as the spouse 
Nearly had the last rites! 


Is it me? 
Or is it me? 
That accidental drowning 
Mother in law frowning. 
Thought I was done! 
Still, I swum away from that one! 

Now,I am thinking........... 
Is this some sort of sick joke? 
Why me? 
I am an ordinary bloke 
The ship did its' own sinking! 

I stepped outside.......... 
The building crumbled to the ground 
I looked around 
Everyone else died! 

What a week it's been! 
Still, life is on the up 
Half full 
Half empty 
It's my cup 
You know what I mean! 

Life is to be enjoyed! 
stuff the insurance from lloyds! 
Hang these narrow squeaks 
These past weeks 
At my insistence, 
it's all a coincidence! 

Now, I am thinking 
that bullet 
Was it meant for me? 
It dropped at my feet 
My name engraved 
I was saved! 
You see! 

I wear it as a lucky charm.......... 
I have come to no harm 
This I know 
Wish I had it weeks ago! 

The lightning strike............. 
I didn't like 
Frightened me! 
Not as much as the resulting fire............. 
Could have been my funeral pyre......... 


Hence forth, I will.... 
Carry on as before 
Defeating nature's law 
Avoiding the kill! 

But old age might get me 
But I don't know.......... 
It will take some years....... 
you see.......... 
I have no fears 
Bring it on! 
I am the star of....... 
The  Narrow Squeak Show!

Lady Love

You're a shining star, an ever lasting light,
The fire in the forest burning wild and bright,
You're an angel flying high and free,
You're a beautiful spirit to whom only I can see,
Your mind is as deep as the ocean floor,
Full of life to which I adore,
I would love to swim deep within your mind,
And explore the secrets that I may find,
Your face holds the beauty of a rare black pearl,
You're a heavenly creature, one hell of a girl,
Your lips are as sweet as grapes on the vine,
Mellow to the taste, as an expensive wine,
Your heart is as a lock and bolt on a door,
To which I and only I have the key for,
So when you're down and lonely and need a close friend,
Just call on me and I shall let myself in,
You're a bird of paradise, a fish in the sea,
You're a dream within a dream, you're everything to me,
You're a Goddess floating in the heavens above,
You're my girl, my woman, My Lady Love.

THE WOODEN BOAT

The river flowed.... 
Dark and black 
Upon it a wooden boat  sped, 
on a river we all dread 

The sky hung low... 
Dirty grey 
The wooden boat..... 
Sped away 

No tiller, no oar.... 
Yet the wooden boat... 
Sped away 
Without a ripple or a splash... 
Searching for a starflash 

The river flowed... 
Carrying in depths, so deep, 
the souls of the dead 
The darkness showed 

The wooden boat sped away.... 
On its' deck... 
like a tiny star... 
There my soul lay.... 

The river flowed.... 
Dark and black.... 
The sky hung low 
Upon the wooden boat.... 
My soul glowed 
Like a tiny star so 

The sky turned , 
a dirty black 
There was no going back 
Down below, 
the souls.... 
Screeched and burned 

Upon the wooden deck.... 
There my soul lay.... 
The light burning strong 
The light, I pray.... 
Will not go out.... 
On this darkened day 

For all around on this night, 
deepest darkest water flowed... 
Black as jet 
My soul, burned bright.... 
My soul glowed 
The river... 
Will not claim me yet 

Upon the wooden boat.... 
A tiny star lay 
It was my soul, 
being sped away 

Upon the wooden boat.... 
Crossing the river 
Dark and black.... 
Cold shiver, 
no turning back 

A tiny star... 
Left the wooden boat 
Up it went 
Leaving  far below 
The river.... 
dark and black, 
The river.... 
Will always flow 

The wooden boat.... 
Forever searching far... 
On a river,dark and black 
For a tiny star 
No turning back.... 

A tiny star , 
left a wooden boat 
Far behind 
Up above.... 
The light beginning to show 
Down below, 
a river black and dark, 
continued to flow 

As for the wooden boat? 
On it sped.... 
On a night as black as coal 
Looking for stars amongst the dead 
To claim back.... 
On a river of deepest darkest black 
A soul....

PAINT THE SKY WITH STARS

The vast midnight blue 
Ready .............. 
Ready, for my stars too 

Reaching for my palette, 
no words needed................ 
I was all set 
This midnight sky seeded 

I painted the sky with stars 
Jupiter and Mars............. 
Saturn and its rings........ 
So many wondrous things 

Mercury and Pluto......... 
The beautiful Venus light, 
especially bright! 
Such heavenly bodies so! 

These stars I hold 
The stories they told! 
The midnight sky................ 
begins to unfold 

I painted the sky with stars 
Each one held a thought 
A special light 
This I wrought, 
to illuminate the night 

The Earth light 
A jewel so bright! 
No blue can compare 
to this colour ...so rare 

Uranus, so far from home 
Somehow not alone 
The Milky Way, 
an accidental brush at play 

I painted the sky with stars 
This deep blue 
Now, you can know it too 
Starlight................ 
Falls on you

White Walled Universe

They're nothing short of infinite,
these thoughts, these rich ideas of mine;
though, crippled in reality,
for which there is no parting line.

Because I cannot slip away
from that which is sustaining me,
I'll mask the concrete sky and earth
with thin, artistic ivory.

Though blank at first, these paper sheets
are much like panes of ductile glass,
reflecting everything I am,
as I control their supple mass.

The mind, much like a document,
can be erased--or worse, destroyed!
Although, I am exempt from such
when tending to my pearly void.

The creativity I house,
evolving even while I sleep,
will one day change the concrete world
with notions I have sown and reaped.

And so, imagination reigns;
it drizzles from a flimsy sky,
within my white walled universe
where kernel-concepts never die.

THE FAERIES OF HEARTSTONE

Small darting lights, 
through the whispering trees 
Through Heartstone 
Faerie flights 

A castle cannot be... 
Without a faerie 
Magic in the air 
What it all means, 
to you and me 

Lilting song 
from a Heartstone faerie 
Will touch you deep 
This where your heart does belong 

Love filled the air 
Music too 
Soft faerie light 
The colour, so rare 

Where it all began 
Lost in time 
The faeries found 
A land sublime 
The kings wrought 
A castle 
The faeries blessed the ground 

Through out the years 
Faeries were here, 
through laughter and tears 
Weddings 
The coming of the darkness 
Faeries,                                                                                                                                 
were always there 

Small darting lights 
Through the whispering trees 
Through me 
Filled me with colour 
If you could only see... 
The heartstone 
what can be

' Legendary ... ' ( Part 4 (of) 4)

‘ Legendary …’  ( Part  4 (of) 4 ) 



Now, that the Maiden was Unaided, Quickly, ‘He’ Located, Her Craftily
Beth, was in A Flurry, Too Much in a Hurry to Hear Turning of A Key 
Alas’ … The Happenstance of Harm, at the Bower, twas’ Done Most Foully !
Alas’ … The Happenstance of Alarm, Maid twas’ Undone for Shameful Villainy!

 * * *  The Maid so Afraid, for The Earl Waylaid – Her, to His Infamy
He Ravaged and Damaged The Maid … and Took Her Innocency …

And She, in Her Distress and Mental-Regress and Misery
Sat Horrified-Aloof, Sitting in Soiled Proof, of Her Plundered Chastity
There Could Nay be Gathered, Her Tattered-Wits twere’ Shattered, even for Modesty
As The Earl snidely Chuckled, and Boastingly Buckled His Belt, Smirking Heinously

Yea, The Earl had Sated His Dissipated Lust and Gloated – Gleefully
Went Back to The Masque-Ball and Unmasked and Called and Mocked Maliciously
Impugned Beth, to One and All, of Her Downfall from Grace to Impropriety
The Earl Made Sure … The Stunned Knight Would Overhear, The Indecency …

But Much to The Earl’s Chagrin and also Akin to Cowardice and Incredulity
… The Knight Spoke Nay a Word, Only The Hissing of His Sword, Struck Accordingly
The Last Look, The Earl Saw Was … Rage and The Fraught-Gaze of  Insanity !
Yea, The Knight, Smote The Gloat off The Face of the Vile Earl, Most Deservedly …

* * *

Thence, The Knight, in Their Sight, Became Legend That Night as He Fought Mightily
He Escaped Royal Guards, His Heart was Beating Hard, as He made it to The Bowery
And by the Window, He could see by Melted Tallow, a piece of cloth hung Raggedly
caught Wherefore Beth … had jumped to Her Death … and Lay Below Crookedly …

* * *

Now, Tis’ Sad To Recite … They Hung The Poor Knight,  tis’ Further Travesty
For The Earl, tho’ Highborn, wast’ a Cur to Be Scorned … a Monstrosity !
Alas’ …  and Aghast, the hope of Lovers Together at Last, Turned into Tragedy
Fie’ and Fain, lest’ we Forget, this be A Story and yet… couldst’ be Reality …

Yea, Fie’ and Fain, lest’ We Forget, …  Why The Earl, His End Met … 

                        … This Too Was Vanity …   Eccl. 1: 14

‘ … Sweet Wine On My Lips … Drip In Ecstasy
Sweet Touch On My Hips … Smooth as Warm Honey
Sweet Love of My Soul … Last An Eternity
Sweetheart, Be Thy Bold in Bravery …

Dark Chocolate On White Chocolate

Dark Chocolate On White Chocolate
Dark Chocolate On White Chocolate
Dark chocolate Her brazilian body
Melting
My White Chocolate soul
As the stimulation
Begins
Soft supple hands 
Exploring my every inch
Hunting
For my secluded secret prize package
Plump 'tween your thighs
Releasing
The heat of my temple 
Sweeter
Than a Hershey's kiss
The taste of her lips
As she softly kisses me 
Giving me pleasure beyond measure
Beyond This world
Entering another
Simultanouesly
The phantasy
Like a drug
I'm Addicted 
To her dark brazilian chocolate
Her sweet parfume
Rich and strong 
Taking me to ecstasy
All night long
Her love is my song

THE MOUNTAIN

Stone crops flash by me, 
blur of speed 

Flick of wing,turn of beak, 
the hunt is on 
for the prey I seek 

Spears of rock 
are my home 

This magnificent mountain 
strewn with scree 
capped by frost 
ringed by tree 

Rising high,it stands alone, 
granite buttresses 
keep it company 

Planes of rock make me twist and turn, 
complex flying I must learn 
to circumnavigate this world of stone 

Timeless unchanging mountain, 
my home in cool,crisp air 

Wind whispering, 
call me invitingly to the search 
for I am the Hawk of this mountain 

A mountain i know well 
for it is living breathing stone, 
my place ,my home 

Scent of pine  fills me 
as i scan for prey 
Blur of speed on rock 
endless scree 

My mountain,my home, 
this is no solitary life 
for I am not alone 

Weathered rock,clean air 
scent of green 
are my companions 
not always seen 

Spears  of stone reach for sky, 
turn of wing I fly by 
complex flying 
rock sighing 

This mountain stands alone , 
my hunting ground,my home 
strewn with scree, 
capped with frost, 
ringed by tree

The storm

Darkness, my lovely shroud of comfort
protecting me, while unveiling me
permitting my hollowness to swell
to rise, to be seen

A costume providing no cover at all
yet calling, so lulling
everyday for me if no one else
never failing, always present

I close my eyes and sink into your beauty
my abyss, my sweet surender
your calming nature is my soul's perfect pleasure
hold me, obey me

Envelop me in your arms
always, and eternity
I yearn for your gently kiss
tasteless, and I savor..

I gaze upon five billion stars
so many, all lonely
One pivotal point alone on the Earth
so blinding, yet fading

Fervently, I scream out into the night
two eyes unseeing
everything appears imperfectly clear
rippled, yet flawless

Emotions run rampant with great speed and time
anger and loathing and resentment and .....love?
memories attack like a thousand tidal waves
I'm drowning, who will save me

The wind tears full on my temple
and harshly, so kindly
I welcome the pain, the adrenaline rush
resounding right through me

Then....The Thunder!!-the sky answers back
I'm here, I am waiting
Bolts and flashes like visions of truth
I can't take it, I won't make it

A shower errupts, I peer to the sky
It stings, I embrace it
The water I fear, erodes my facade
I want to keep hiding----now the lightning

Epiphanies from old, come claw at my face
the pleasure, so degrading
The chaos inside grows with the storm
inviting, yet so smiting

I feel my will rise like howls in the breeze
come and get me, wont you take me
I am your puppet--I do what I please!!!
I love it, I can't stand it

More desolate now than ever before
the drops drenching, my heart wrenching
such immaculate pain, just reciting my name
fragile whisper--so diminish

Then stopped the rain

Alone once again......

NO SUCH THING AS GOODBYE

You didn't pass on 
You didn't die 
No such thing as goodbye 

Bittersweet somethings 
Bittersweet nothings 

One day soon 
You and I 
Running to the moon 
Past the blue sky 

Bittersweet somethings 
Bittersweet nothings 

I saw you yesterday 
and today 
for in my heart... 
you did stay 

How will you go? 
Such escapes, 
you cannot know 

No such thing as goodbye 
You didn't pass on 
You didn't die 
Bittersweet battle won 

We will meet soon... 
In the other world, 
or the next 
Somethings... 
Bittersweet 

Such lives inextricably linked 
I belong to you, 
as you belong to me 
This is how it is meant to be... 
You know it too

JEWEL

Carved and polished by the sea 
Sparkling too 
Jewels of every hue, 
lay on the beach for me 

Blues and greens 
Sunset reds 
Golden yellows 
Amethysts too 

Such lustrous light, 
glowed on the beach 
Filled the night 
Such colours, loving bright 

For each jewel... 
Is a facet of you 
I picked a blue, 
golden yellow , for joy 
Amethyst for love, 
sunset red for passion too 

Jewels of every hue 
Jewels for me 
Jewels for you,

THE WARM BLUE SEA

This warm blue sea........ 
that carried me 
Carried me to you 
This warm blue sea 
Was meant to be 

This wave that carried me ashore, 
to that distant golden beach 
It carried me to you......... 
We are in each others' reach 

The warm blue sea, 
covering the naked me 
The warm blue sea 
Carried me.............. 
Carried me...........

The warm blue sea, 
has a message too 
It is carrying me......... 
Into the intimate you 

You waited on golden sand...... 
Watching the warm blue sea 
Waiting for the naked me, 
passion fanned 
Wanting the naked me 

The warm blue sea........ 
Touched you 
Touched me 
You wanted me 
You needed me too

Maiden of the Island

I walked alone one fine morning,
the sun above was shining;
ahead of me there she stood -
the maiden of the island.

She waved her hand at me,
her body's white, her smile's so gay;
she called me by my name -
the maiden of the island.

She took my hand in her hand
as we started walking along the sand,
she whispered softly into my ear -
my maiden of the island.

Far away we walked,
felt too tired to even talk,
found us a place under a tree -
the maiden of the island and me.

We made love on that fateful day,
filled my soul with so much ecstasy;
when I awoke I found that I was all alone,
the wind had blown the maiden of the island away from me.

DREAMT OF WORLDS (my 600th poem)

When I started...
This journey had just begun
It is not about me
It is where I am going
Over land
Over sea
Another sun

The books of the mind
Continually opened
Such beautiful things poured through
More than I could ever find

It is about the heart,
and all it contains
For the books of the mind
Are only part
Of what I can find

It has just begun
I travel like a star
For, I have left this galaxy
Left this sun

I dreamt of worlds
Seasons..
Colours too..
Love..
Light..
You..

THE FINDING

The Eagles of Shadowfire and Heartstone 
Mighty wings spread 
Not missing a beat 
Onwards they sped 

For a Heartstone Eagle 
Finding its' home 
Made it stronger 
Soar higher 
Fly longer 

Through the night 
Navigating by stars and Faerie light 
Aided by a fair south wind, 
they entered the lands of mist and magic 

The mist closed in 
The Eagles' feathers grew brighter 
Like a travelling star 
They sped across 
They have come so far.... 
Soon it grew lighter... 

A gentle descent, you see 
They broke through the mist 
Below a forest of green.. 
Could this be the Whispering Trees? 

Hidden for so long... 
The Whispering Trees 
Ever looked upwards 
Searching for eagles 
That soared in the breeze 

To see eagles above 
Created such a murmur 
A joyful bending of canopies 
For the time had come, 
to renew the bonds of love 

Leaves glowed too 
Fiercely green 
The forests were alive and strong 
For they knew... 
A King and Queen 
One day to return 
Fill the air with magic 
For, they waited so long 

The forest opened wide, 
and in its' heart 
Lay the Castle Heartstone 
Waiting by its' side 

Magic filled the air 
The Castle, beautiful down below 
Sculptured in stone 
Down, they swooped, down they fell 
Landing by the Great Hall 
Nothing had changed at all 
The Whispering Trees 
Hid a castle so well 
now, they were never alone

IT CAME TO ME

A gentle wind blew off the sea...
It came to me....
Took me up high...
Passed sweeping clouds
What I can be...

It took a small moment....
To realize....
The things I can do
With a gentle  wind...
From the sea....
Blue skies...
Sun bright...
Clouds of white...
Levitating too...

With a grey feather....
It came to me....
I can change what I want to be....
I can pass sweeping clouds of white
Find out who I am...
Not what I heard...
The wind can lull...
The wind can blow...
Perhaps I am a gull...
Only I ,will ever know...

THE FAERIE SONG

The Faeries played the songs.......... 
Such musical beauty filling all 
Lilting melodies............ 
Musical light............. 
Softly through the night 

The music of the Faeries 
Drifting through.............

The branches sway.......... 
To what the Faeries play 
The song known to all............. 
The Four Elements 
The Seasons 
The Winds 
The Faeries 
The Flowers 
The Magic 
The Stars 
The Heartstone that glows in the Great Hall 

The precious song 
The precious music 
Filling you......... 
With the love of all things, 
and the joy it brings 
The Heartstone ,so true 
Living too, 
all around 
The Faerie sound 

For, some things touch you deep 
The Faeries from Castle Heartstone 
The music that they play 
Inward to seep 
This is the way of all things...........

Mountain Splendor

They pierce the heavens
  Like many fine breasts
Some are powdered white
  While others be bare
Yet all spring forth
  The essence to support life
Creating the many valleys
  The Plains and rivers spread out before
With much anticipation
  I begin to scale thee
When at last visions of grandeur fill the eye
  Revealed, which were hidden
Till at last I have conquered thee
  Envisioning the splendor God made
Which is spread out before
  Now at last I am blessed to see

Rush of water,

Small fish dart 
Multicoloured streaks,

Sealed in sea of blue,

Electric blue fish dart about

Pink and green,

Sealed by blue sea 
Here lies the moral,

THE SMILE OF A MONA LISA

The real-life picture of mom,
hanging in the neat and cosy living-room
gleams like the smile of Mona Lisa;
her hazel,cheerful eyes radiate
when there isn't enough light to compensate,
her brown hair  matches the red gardenia
in the rosy,intrinsic background,
hiding a mistery yet to be found..

If Leonardo Da Vinci created that painting
to satisfy his self-gratification,
I invent words,in a different time,
to describe her gracefullness 
with a deserved adulation;
a mother who never achieved great awards
or prouded herself of independence;
love,patience,endurance and indisputable faith
were the virtues that made her so unique,
and none of those implied criticism...

Very often when I'm overtaken by sadness,
she towers over me like an impregnable fortress:
with the confident smile of a Mona Lisa,
so spontaneous without a sign of malice...  
to break the silence of an unspoken voice;
to inspire and motivate me again with thoughts
that lay dormant until they awake again
on the battered waves of my imagination...  


Details | Ballad | |

LOOK DEEPER INSIDE

Anytime loneliness 
brings its tidings of sadness...
look deeper inside...
to find a brighter side!

Don't set aside that untried aspiration,
let it come alive with boldness and action;
where others fail, you can easily succeed..
make the effort and fear not to dream!

Discouragement can delay
your flight to freedom by a mere doubt;
your spirit can still soar:
show the boldness of an eagle
and search for a sky
bluer than the rolling ocean!

I embarked on a long jeourney
and was deprived of much sleep,
my lost ship never found a shore;
little did I know about a lingering hope,
and like Columbus who was rediculed a lot...
and even called crazy by some,
I was awesomestruck
by a twist of luck! 

Look deeper inside
and be so glad you've at least tried...
to discern anything that made you worthless;
enunciate your right to live to yourself,
and seek out completion
by not wrestling with perfection!

SENTINEL TOWER

Majestic and high 
A lair for eagles, 
in which they did dwell 
Piercing the sky 
A tower... 
The sentinel 

Every day at dawn 
The flight of an eagle to be seen 
In a pink sky 
Above forests of green 

For these wings guard our land 
Golden eyes, so keen 
On golden sand 
Above forests of green 

Spreading wing 
Upon sentinel tower 
A Shadowfire eagle, rising 

To feel the wind on the rampart... 
Sentinel tower 
Flexing of golden wing 
Mighty hunter at heart

THE BRAMBLEROSE

Deep in summer wood 
where beauty grows 
This garden, 
home of the bramble rose 

This high wall 
bordered in pink 
The bramble rose, 
high above us all 

Soft ferns of jade 
This green,                                                                                                                       
does not fade 
Hidden delights to be seen 

Delicate blooms with petals of pink 
nestle with flowers of deep yellow 
Such colour, makes you blink 
Fills you with wonder so 

Moss covered stone, 
gentle trickle of stream 
I am alone 
In the garden of my dream 

Blue butterflies abound 
Hear the bird song, 
all around 
Soft hum of  bees, 
through the trees 

The bramble rose 
encircles the dell 
How wonderful is grows, 
by the old well 

The soft scent 
from the bramble rose 
Its' pastel pink flower, 
enriches me so, 
as I sit beneath this shady bower 

This garden seat 
beneath bramble rose 
Away from the heat, 
leave behind your woes 

Sit back and enjoy, 
hum of bees through the trees, 
Colours to make you blink 
from flowers yellow and pink 
Deep in summer wood 

This garden, 
deep in summer wood, 
where beauty grows 
Home of the bramble rose

THE SOUTH WIND PRINCE

Soft golden hair,

The sun does always shine, 
on a Prince, so fine 

Soft blow , 
through cupped hands 
The warm wind, 
spreads it's light

The Prince of the South Wind............ 
The crown ,like the sun 
Gold and bright, 
lives in South land light 

Warm and light so, 
The Faeries did follow......... 
Bathed the Prince, 
in golden glow 

He walked on through , 
the walled garden too 
Passed the sundial, 
to the Great Hall 
To see the Tapestries........ 
To sit a while............. 

The sun shone 
on the Great Hall 
Golden light did fall 
on the Princes's hair 
The wind ,so fair 

The Faerie tapestry 
especially welcoming 
Tiny glowing lights found 
On the Princes's crown 

The Prince had great love inside 
for, within the castle wall 
What he loved most of all 
The Flower Princess 
Whom he wanted as his bride 

For the wind, 
warm and light 
Flowers on a breeze 
Such colour,so bright 
The scent,

changes me so, 
filling me with inner glow. 
My thoughts bright 

I rise with the light, 
turning slowly round, 
tip of fingers bright, 
swirling light abound 

This dusty lightstream, 
I leave below, 
full of golden dream, 
I had long ago 

A flick of wrist 
sends golden dust far 
further than any shooting star. 
These are the things I have missed 

To travel in a blink of an eye, 
to your favourite place 
in a blaze of white light 
and not wonder why, 
is a state of grace 

This soft golden glow, 
deep inside, 
far below, 
for I have tried 
and now bursting free, 
for it can only be me 

This innner glow 
of soft light,I embrace 
this love ,fills me so 
for I see your face 

Do not concern, 
for I have left this place 
and will not return, 
for soft light,I embrace 

For now,I am that glow, 
that I dreamt long ago. 
Golden sun and moon beam, 
I am that dream

Dream-Tip

I live for vacant white nights:
devoid of stars and ocean hues,
a loose-leaf tainted ivory sky
that's just a whisper short of true.

Life's metronomic father points
his stale batons toward my mind,
though only to be broken down;
alone, I left him ticking blind.

The homeless shadows beg of me
for concrete shells to live within,
though I would never hesitate
to fill my inner evening den.

I am the author of my dreams;
I am the paper and the pen!

I sleep for chronic impulse:
the resonance of ceaseless bliss,
a feeling wrapped in brittle dust
and formless like a will-o-wisp.

Life's bittersweet horizon peers
into my deep nocturnal space,
though only to be torn apart;
I had no need for such a face.

The boundary linking earth and sky
does not exist for chainless hawks,
so like a bird, I'll take command
and pave the path I want to walk.

I am the proctor of my dreams;
I am the blackboard and the chalk!

I muse for vibrant futures:
the pliant maps of mental jumps,
a polychromic destiny
that topples every other trump.

Life's bland reiterations ring
around my silken paradise,
though only to be cast aside;
I needn't play with faulty dice.

The mirror to my distant past
is calling me with whispers faint:
"you must retain your future's seed
and tend to it without complaint."

I am the artist of my dreams;
I am the canvas and the paint!

No reality can keep its grip
on the cryptic force of my dream-tip!

A CHRISTMAS AT HEARTSTONE

A special time
When the sun shone bright
In clear winter light
 
Robin Redbreasts
Darted back and forth
Singing gaily
The splash of red
Upon the snow
As they were being fed
 
In a magical world
Belonging to you and me
Christmas , came
In our hearts
The joy of giving
Beneath the tree
 
In a castle
To the right of the Winding Stair
A great tree grew
A mighty fir
 
In soft winter light
The candles  lit
Upon a tree
Faerie light
 
Golden feathers from Heartstone Eagles
Were put on the tree
Ribbons and lace from the Queens
Glowing berries from the Kings
 
A living tree
Filled with colour
Decorated with love
For you
For me
 
In a magical world
Under a tree
Christmas came
In soft winter light
Kings and Queens
Gave generously
 
Gifts of love
Colour
Of tranquillity
Passed on through
A kiss
A touch
Under a tree
 
Faeries flew
Trees, whispered
A castle, lit
The love felt, too
 
A single touch
Passing
You give your self
To everyone
They share all of you
As they share too
Forever lasting
 
This is a Heartstone Christmas
For what is given
Is love
Colour
Tranquillity
Under a tree
 
There is no greater gift
Then giving all of you
The light inside glowed
You wanted this,
and it showed
 
I want to share
A Heartstone Christmas
With you
Hold your hand
See the Northern Lights
Faeries too
 
For a Christmas at Heartstone
Is a time for love
A time to be free
Where the heart knows
Of everything
For it shows
In you

A BOY FOR AUTUMN

The long summer passed 
Dreamy days 
The beginning of a full Moon 
A boy for Autumn.. 
Soon.. 

The Spring Queen and the King of Air 
Gazed out to a sky deep with night 
A touch of hand 
The stars bright 
A full Moon 
A baby, coming soon 

A Castle had lost a King 
A boy, to be born soon 
In Autumn 
Under a full moon 

The Autumn Queen came, 
in a swirl of leaves 
Gold and red 
The impending birth 
The Earthen King passed on 
Who will take his name? 

The leaves changed colour 
The moon rose 
Silver light 
Shone a castle, so bright 

The cry of a baby boy 
On an Autumn night 
A full Moon 
Shone bright 
All of Heartstone 
Joy and delight 

A tired Queen looked on 
A boy, so perfect and true 
Her face shone 
The faeries glowed 
A new King for Heartstone 
Under the full Moon too

THE STAR CATCHER

In the limitless of me 
I caught a star 

I made my way , 
through the universe 
Another day 
Another constellation too 

I am a star catcher 
Stars, caught 
Stars, let go 
Such worlds I know 

Such stars, 
breathed their light over me 
Filled me with magic 
Let me see 

In the limitless of me 
Star catcher am I ! 
The colours flowed through, 
in a midnight sky 

The places I have been 
The places I have seen 
I want you to see... 
The catcher in me 

I can find you, 
for, you are a star 
Caught in me 
Colours too 

Through my universe 
Watching stars burn 
Watching stars shimmer 
Catching stars 
For, now it is your turn

Beyond the Whispers

To the Beautiful Latina you know who you are

Beyond the Whispers
You blew into my Life
On A breeze
As the gentle wind blows
The sea air ...Refreshing
You and I Meshing
Into One Mind
The exchange of Promises ...Ideas
Growing...plateauing
To a height not to be measured
Beyond the Whispers
Our eyes met
Satisfied...Fulfilled
Completed
Beyond the Whispers
Where we Live

Bridal Moon

Oh bridal moon
Virgin moon tonight
In glistening white 
You shine in all your splendor
And wait for your groom
To come from the heavens
To take you in his arms

Oh bridal moon
How lovely your are tonight
In your pristine gown
Your face glowing in the heavens
Waiting for someone
As I continue to do..

Sloppy, Jo

For the break.fast at hand,
So that I'll understand,
He makes me a sloppy jo.
... ug. So over I rolled.


She nibbles at JO,
waves g’morning to MO…

Mmmm.
A tasty treat, made so sweet,
I’m glad, one of us can cook…
First it was Sweez, now it’s Swowz…
I politely, normally don’t eat cows.

Having said that, while I pet my cat,
I’ve bitten in anyway.
Was like the day, the corn turned grey,
Was that by chance, in May?

!! Eleven elevens !! cried those sevens,
While being tossed into the pan!!!!
Who is the cook with spatula hand,
Who is the chef, and Who, this man?

. . . . .

Little salt my dear?
Little taste on the fix?
Was that May?
Or did you say May-trix?

. . . . .

With the morning JO,
He makes Sloppy MO!
How can I show him, to understand….?
My friend the chef, reads to the left,
So Who, is the spatula’s hand?

Psst…
They want a plan.
Four corners are on…
and the Dan said ‘when’.

. . . . .

Don’t assume, my cutest Jew,
That spelling is all for not.
My dog is a Rot, but a Rot she’s knot,
And the language She barks is new.
Did you want that clue?

Bye and bye, for now I must fly,
My belly has quite the mix.
Did he say JO, or was that MO?
I know, SHE said May-tricks.

. . . . .

Hey Jo…?
Little Do,
Rayed me,
but falls hope?
Know,... T.
La.tte...my Dear?
Satire is queer.
Hugs you love,
The morning calls,
From Above.
Xoxox

. . . . .

Makes note: keeping friendship.s.new, that's me and you.
~I'm such a muse.

. . . . . . . . . . . . .

~wow and meow the Catz say, how,
!~! did he fix you, a sloppy JO?
Does he not know,
That you never show,
Your face, in the drive and go?
~except maybe four treats,
that have no feet...
Like the splits, and
the camels, pistachio...
~and why aren't cow,
a treat you say?
~they have square feet,
and it's knot my way.

A BEAUTIFUL SKY, SO RED

A BEAUTIFUL SKY , SO RED 

A beautiful sky, so red 
Clouds 
Scattered as far as the eye can see 
Words cannot be said 
A beautiful sky, 
for me 

I looked up, 
to a beautiful sky, so red 
To be a cloud 
Yet, I am down here instead 

The sun painted its' colour 
beautiful and red 
throughout the sky 

A beautiful sky, so red 
melted away 
Dark blue 
Some say... 
Transformed the day, 
to something new 

The sky darkened 
Night was here instead 
To steal the light.... 
of a beautiful sky,  so red 

I have become a night 
Lost in starlight 
Onwards I sped, 
to find a beautiful sky , so red

Awakening

Roll like the ocean
Forever washed into infinity
Cleansed of each sin
Stripped of humanity
Stretching my soul
Feeding on air
Floating along on the breeze
Not a thourght, not a care
Experience's savioured
Everything free
A bird flying high
The colour's of a tree
Tasting the life
That's been dormant too long
A rebirth, An awakening
With all inabitions gone

Our Hearts Uncharted

 Our Hearts Uncharted
   
 
You smile to Me From afar
Your name It is unknown
My heart warms to roaring flame.
The drum beats become louder by the 
Second.

Still, you do not speak
Yet you are inviting me into
your world.
A WORLD of the Unknown
Many Pages will be written
On blank sheets from our hearts.

The course of this story is
uncharted. No one else has
read our book. Not even us.
I will find out who you are
and as for the pages. The first 
Entry will be You.

THE COMING OF THE WRAITH KING

Winter came
Crackling frost
The snow fell steadily
It was unusually bitter
No one felt cold like this before...
What could this mean?
Would  there be more?
 
The Whispering Trees,
felt the biting wind
Boughs broke
Branches cracked
Something was there,
in the cold air
 
Deepest, bitterest cold
Leaves shattered like glass
Trees shivering
The coming of the Wraith King
 
Knights defending
Faeries magicked
The Wraiths, defeated before
Now, they have a king
 
Deepest, bitterest cold
through the land
The Wraiths have a King
A battle in the making
 
Screeching and wailing
Wraiths flew across the Lands of Mists and Magic
At their head, a king
 
Trees splintered
Shrubs shattered
The earth split
The bitter cold
Brought by an Ice King

SMALL BLUE THING

I circle slowly around your heart 
for I carry a gift, 
and I wait 
for when I'm ready to start 

For this gift is a bright blue jewel 
The light in my eyes gives you a clue 

Small and precious,I hold with my hands 
for this stone will  be set in the ring of your heart, 
set in golden lands 

I circle slowly around your heart 

Reach out and touch the golden heart 
for I have a small blue thing 
For its home, is in your heart 
Jewel of blue, it's blue fire sparkling 

Golden light and fiery blue fire, 
these are the things I desire 

I circle slowly around your heart 

Gold and blue to make it true, 
colours reach out to touch the inner you 

For the inner you, 
you cannot disguise, 
with secrets and lies 
For the fire that glows within 
remains undimmed, 
without sin 

For as the colours glow, 
your thoughts and actions 
this is what you show 

Uncloak the fire within you, 
golden light,fire of blue 
Give to me everything 
I will give to you 

My blue fire for it's heart does sing 
will only work in golden light, 
reflecting 

For one cannot exist ,
without perfect swirl of colour in my fist 

I circle slowly around your heart 

For I hold a small blue thing, 
I give to you 
For this small blue thing 
is my heart, 
my heart for you

TOMORROW IS GONE

Tomorrow is gone 
I lived yesterday 
and forgot about today 

I saw sunsets, 
never sunrises 
Rising moons 
silvery nights 

I saw so many things yesterday 
Colours too 
Must it always be this way 
What I always do 

Tomorrow is gone 
Lost in the day lived yesterday 
Lost sunrises 
Lost colours 
All disappeared away 

Today, I cannot remember at all 
Moon changing 
Silvery nights 
Moons fall 

Tomorrow is gone 
I lived yesterday, 
and forgot about today 
Rising moons 
Quirky ways

A KING AND A QUEEN

Autumn leaves swept away
The snow fell steadily
The whispering trees, quiet so
A world of white
A castle,
wrapped in snow

Darkest night,
illuminated by streams of light
From Castle Heartstone
The Winter Queen...
Not alone

King of Fire,
filled the room
Light,
banished the gloom
The Winter Queen..
His desire

Such is the seasons
The nature of things
Precious times
Stars burning fire
Winter night
Burning bright

A King and a Queen
Such forces of nature,
wield such passion
Beauty of snow
The flames,
flicker so

This is Castle Heartstone
Love, in the deepest way
Even in winter snow
you can feel its' glow

These immense stone walls,
radiated warmth
From turrets to stairs,
you can feel within
The fire, flares

Winters' night
with a King
Warm and bright
Winters' day,
with a Queen
Such beautiful light,
where the snow lay

Autumn leaves
Gold and red flame,
swept away
A Queen,
to return...
on a winters' day

A King...
must let go...
A Queen
The ending of winter snow

corporate cold waterfall

once again i need a swim (but these waters are too shallow) so i'll just lay inside 
them.
And the fishes swimming by, had to swallow all their pride. I think something in 
them died as I just laid there inside.
Cos this breeze is getting cold and this sky is getting old. Quickly, shadows wed 
and dine as the sun soon falls behind. (the time passes through the sift and 
through my hand)
I was laughing oh so near... but my dear, you could not hear. You just turned to 
her reflection and you marvelled at her mirrors. The curiosity in your awe seems 
to be my greatest flaw. For no matter if I try, i simply cant stay in your eyes.
Was it the boy or just the man who had took me by the hand? Still I could not 
understand where you were going...
Now how idly I wait, with broken glass and sandy crates; at the feet of all the 
masses- lively maddened in their state.
Thanks for lines, and wasted time... for the tragedies in mind... and in the sea i 
hope to find... the peaceful swim i had in mind.

THE WINNING OF A HEART

It is said in the Book of The Wise Ways
Verse xxxviii
“The tapestries of the heart are filled with colour”

How things can be
That stars flow
Stars shine
That you
Can find love
That you can show
All inside
All of me

The Dog roses
Ran wild
In a castle garden
Where kings and queens
Walked amongst scent
and beautiful things

That love can be found
In ways you never knew
For, love exists
Inside of you

When trees glow
The sun is brighter
Heady scent fills the air
Love will come
Love will show

The winning of a heart
In a land of beauty
Of magic
Of colours
Of you
Are entwined
In the magic of me

It is said in the Book of The Wise Ways
Verse xx
“To love another, is the greatest gift”

THE KNIGHTS OF ST JOHN

A knight.... 
Head bowed 
The sword sheathed 
Glittering blade......... 
Will never fade 

Knights of St John 
Knights Templar........ 
Have come far 
Battles, far from won 

Jerusalem.......... 
Will be lost......... 
We are the few......... 
What can we do? 
The final cost........ 

Our numbers have been reduced 
Jewels and gold............ 
They have been seduced 
So many bought and sold.... 

Gather,ye men.......... 
The ideals hold true 
We cannot rest 
Find the path 
What can we do? 
In to the lions den 
The true test 

The armour that we wear..... 
Shaped metal 
The knight.......... 
Scores to settle 
The forged sword............ 
By Englands finest smiths 
Enemies laid bare 

But is all lost? 
Our enemies are at the gate 
We are the few.............. 
Can we defeat Saladin's horde? 
We place our trust in the lord 

Knights of St John 
Gather ye round 
Knights of old 
Knights bold 
Before it is all gone.............. 

Saladin's men at the gate 
Relentless horde 
We cannot abate 
This is not the time for dying 
Or listening to the enemies' lying 

They have not cared........ 
Only what they want done 
Our lives, 
Never to be spared............... 
Jerusalem is lost 
The knights, 
will come 

The old order of things............ 
To be sacrificed 
The Knights........... 
To die for Christ 
The knights........... 
Cannot crumble to dust 
The swords must never rust 

They are needed........... 
The teachings ,seeded 
The Cross of St George 
The values, to forge 

The Knights betrayed............ 
The memories............ 
Swords rust 
Knights, 
crumble to dust 

The values taught.......... 
The enemy cannot kill 
The battles always fought 
But still............... 
They come 
The war ,far from won 

The knights weep 
The rot, beginning to seep........ 
The true ways 
Compromised by political plays 
Swords rust........ 
Knights fade........ 
Needs must 
Knights betrayed.......... 
The final cost 
Jerusalem.....lost

The Monk

White space. Where am I now?
No place. I'm awake somehow?
Know sounds, in the air around.
So I'll walk... On know ground.

"... 155..."
~Am I alive? I hear later on.
"... I gave you a song..."
~So, I walked. My middle is Long.
"Dragon..."
~Did I speak to you Snake?


White space. Where am I now?
No place. I'm awake somehow?
Know sounds, in the air around.
So I walked. Onto know ground.

Hey. You. Olld man there...
Where'd you come from?
"...speak your question, little one."
Do I dare? Was I here...?

He was content to take his Time.
I stood there, silencing my mind.

Then.Motion. Out of no motion,
His hand came round, from around,
left side, and through his dark eyes,
White.Paper flies....

And stunned was I, step back to dye.
No, lept! I cried! His eyes! I wept!
Steadfast. Straight past, fixed,
to the sun was I, in the midnight
glide while the stars fell by...
And in the light... his white,
Paper.Butterflies from the skies.

Stars.
Then silence.
I turn again.
So still til then. This old man.
He changed my Time.
He played the knic nac,
with the pretty kitty cat,
he played the switch.back,
with my mind...
"... I'm the Monk..." he said,
" and you're the bow tie, This Time.Love"


Noted:
Missed.Print.
To assume, the Lady would have given her ear to a snake again....
was too, simply assumed. ~We need two ears to fly with.Dragon~Sang.The Lion.
We learn first, the right time.
We painted it fuzzy, to reMind...

CHARIOT OF FIRE

Timeless roar of sea.......... 
Races to run........... 
Running with the sun 
This could be me 

I hear my heart beating, 
loudly in my chest 
Smooth flow 
This running show 
No time for rest 

So many miles to run 
This race not yet won 
Not in reach........... 
The dying sun, 
on this lonely beach 

Breathe this sea, 
running free 
Lonely beach, 
the running me, 
not in reach 

Running sea, 
wind lull 
Flying gull

Relentless roar of sea, 
running me 
Hearts desire 
Chariot of fire 
Running sea 

The heart inside, 
the chariot of fire 
Running far and wide, 
lifts me higher 

Rhythmic roaring, 
gulls soaring, 
flying higher, 
chariots of fire 

My chariot of fire, 
sound of the sea 
Paternal flier 
The gentle me 

The running heart 
The running sea 
Takes part...............

Sailing with you,

such delicate golden streams, 
are what makes us free 

On the sunlight sea 
Where our love can be 
This golden place,

This golden light 
on a sea so bright 
A sea so blue, 
all my dreams' 
in delicate golden streams 
have come true 

My love for you

Bypath

First, I saw the star of David rising out of the East.
No one will believe me , not even my children to say the least.
They know there is a Geni, but don't know how to know Him or fear Him like no 
other.

The star of Bethlehem made clear a way.
Just like John the Baptist did when Christ was on his way.

There is an other light that is here,
Nobody even knows, nobody even cares.

These two lights to me,  remind me of a story I once read.
Sodom and Gomora everyone there is dead.
Fire struck those corrupted cities.
The Geni burned them to the ground.

One star, two star, three star.
I think only two.

You built your alters on calvary and even on his tomb.
Dedicating it for love.

All the earth, you know your love is fornication.
Really sickening and dismay.
You call your alters, Venus, Jupiter and Juno.
Wasn't anything sacred here at all.
Nothing is sacred here anymore.

These two lights represent Babylon, the sinful place,
Just like before.

It has happened, and I think it is going to happen again.
If sin is what you want, I think it is what your going to get.

Sin Ends.

Come on come on  everybody bounce bounce bounce with me
I am a hot stepper can't nobody hold me down so set me free
Everbody  Jam Jam upon sugar hill 
let your step be on a maximun overdrive skill
Quit Quit crying in the rain 
Po folks downing purpil pills with cheap champagne
Seen my girl on T.V 
looking starry eyed and a little dizzy dizzy
Come on Come on let's keep it up 
let the whole world keep filling our cup
Rumble rumble in the jungle 
let this magic wand not let you stumble
This ghetto love got to get it  
Westside Eastside let's see it fit
For your going to fly now  
like a sweet escape electric salsa fowl
No more football on T.V.
hit the streets a dance you shall see
Got to get one more time  
try and keep up with this rhythm and rhyme
Hate it or love it  I'm going to be alright 
just stay with me just one more night
If ya getting down 
I'll be there to wipe that frown
Don't cry tonight 
Mr. Wendle luv you better with your runaway fiddle
So here we go once again
 dancing and grooving 
to a life on the streets  spin

THE MAGIC OF THE TREES

We read of beauty and love
Of Kings 
Of Queens
What of the trees?
Where magic and colour became
Many shades of green

Long ago
In a far off time
When trees could move
When trees could whisper

The king of earth did ask
The Whispering Trees
A certain task
To hide a Castle
Tress to grow mighty and tall
Hide the Heartstone
That resides in the Great Hall

Trees
Living through centuries
Tell of many things
Of legends
Of Queens and Kings
Faeries' magic
Love too

My Portrait

A mountain stands before me
The vision of pain
No escape I find
Fear  now overwhelms the heart
Knowing I must climb
Shadows of doubt abound
Silence is all I hear
The rapid river of torment
Grinding its way through me
Revealing an empty heart
Alone all alone
In a world without pity
Rewarding me by bashing
Laughing as I lay bleeding
Alone always alone
Thou I stretch forth my hand
Air shall be all that I find
Hungry for a simple thing
Communication
Understanding
That I too am man in need
Love is now a desert
With one tear
I dare quench my thirst
Death is no comfort
So where can I look
To find the thing I need
That I thought was at the top
Of the very mountain I climb
Which now I see I shall never find

FANTASIES,SWEET FANTASIES...

Unrealized fantasies,
don't scatter my imagination
amid the swirls of a hurricane...
like the soft petals of daises!
I dream...because it makes life
more thrilling and interesting,
and I can distinguish
a dream from reality;
nothing has ever been
achieved without dreaming!

Fantasies,sweet fantasies... 
what kind of beautiful dreams
you'll bring to this heart in need:
desidering unattainable things           
so steeped in realism,
not fearing reproach or criticism?

Unrealized  fantasies
of a soul invaded by illumination,
bearing an image of revelation;
to resemble something 
out of the extraordinary...
thoughts emamored
by the mysteries that would shatter like crystals: 
If  I unlocked the proper word,
and took them out of their depths...
 to sparkle them with simplicity!

Fantasies,sweet fantasies...
don't diminish the struggle,
but leave it for the defining moment...
when fear won't pinch in revenge
and my ideals triumph in the open:
without the threat that made them cringe;
fantasies,sweet fantasies...
have I deserted you for an instant?

AN APPRENTICE IN MAGIC

Curiosity... 
A curious thing... 
A whim... 
An action... 
A fascination... 

The Princess of Magic, 
every year, took 
A Faerie who had the curiosity 
To look... 
Further... 
Past a whim... 
Through a book 

The science and mystery, 
of Heartstone magic 
A flower 
The sky 
A tree 
All of these things, 
are important you see 

For this is the nature of magic 
Of course... 
The magic of nature... 
A beautiful force 

So much to learn 
Tapestries 
Moons and suns 
Secret doors 
Winding stairs 
Whispering Trees 

Curiosity... 
A curious thing... 
A whim... 
Magic... 
Nature... 
Within...

Tidings Within a Soul

A mirror once said:
" A scheme has been made
  Upon the world that needs aid
  Where a disease has been spread
  And cure is so easy to get
  Just by thinking deep into one's mind"

Researches quickly began
Since the letter was heard
But, the cure was never found...
Years passed and many forgot
About everything that was done

Oneday, a boy approached
The mirror that once spoke
Dust covered its face
And, with the boy's hand 
Swept it away

Once again the mirror began to talk
" My boy," said the mirror
" The disease had been spread
  Around the world as I've said
  None found out what it is 
  But you, my boy, have the cure
  For you have come back to me 
  Swept the dust away and made me free
  If you realized, you have not forgotten
  The letter I've said before
  You have come back and remembered 
  About me, a mirror, where I'm nothing compared to the rest."

Days passed and the boy discovered the disease
The disease that spread around is...
Forgetting About One...

You see, many wanted to know the cure once they heard
So,search had been made and giving up occurred
Then, the tale was forgotten and carelessness spread
As a result, the disease of forgetting reached upon
And the cure, ready to fight, was within everyone
Yet, it never took flight and soared into the air

Never forget what passed in life
For it is a disease resulting in losing someone
By simply forgetting the moments spent together
And the picture of you and them vanishes into eternity

The mirror was a simple example
About how many people turn their backs to others and...
Walk away, never looking back...

SHE HELD A HANDFUL OF STARS

These eyes bright 
Hair the colour of night 
Queen of starlight 

She held a handful of stars 
She tossed them far 
Scattering through, 
the midnight sky 

The star that landed on me.......... 
Was my destiny 
For this star, 
choose to be.............. 
the star for me 

Scattering through, 
billions of stars 
There is one waiting for you 

Glittering glow, 
from my chosen star so 
Scattered throught the blackest night 
This one, I won't let go 

This star 
So bright 
It came so far you see............. 
It chose me 

These eyes bright 
Hair the colour of night 

She held a handful of stars 
She held one for me 
The star she held................ 
Was my destiny 

One for me........ 
One for you........ 
Travelling too........ 
Such stars are meant to be.......... 

These eyes bright 
Hair the colour of night 
Scattering starlight

Coursing Passion

Coursing Passion
You take me
Thy body yours
to take
Passion...Rushing...Coursing
Through Our Veins
Encapsulated by your scent
you were Heaven Sent
A Prisoner of Love
Given to me by the Stars Above
The Fateful Words Uttered
I Love You
The same come in return
Thy heart has begun to burn
Thy heart has begun to yearn

MY JOURNEY.....THUS FAR

The sea, took me far... 
Through the night 
I followed the stars, 
until dawn light 

The deepest ,softest night 
Replaced  by rosy hue 
On a sea of blue, 
in dawn light 

Each day, did bring... 
For me... 
A small wonderful thing 
Life... 
On  a deep blue sea 

I waste not, a single day 
A golden sun 
A soft wind, 
the sea spray 

I waste not, a single night 
Deepest blue, 
in starlight 
A moon... 
So clear 
I could touch it... 
It was so near 

My journey, thus far... 
Following my chosen star 
On a sea, 
filled with words, 
filling me

LOVERS FLIGHT

I took your hand 
in the dark of night 
You took my heart 
Lovers flight 

Beneath the stars 
We ran... 
To the edge of somewhere 
Lovers flight 

My heart filled to burst, 
with you beside me 
Heady air 
The stars I see 

Copper trees touched the sky 
Glowing in the suns first light 
Wind sigh 
Lovers flight 

The stars faded away 
The moon lost its' glow 
Colour filled the day 

The sun rose steadily 
We cannot rest 
The miles between 
Lovers flight 

To the edge of somewhere 
Filled with copper trees 
Golden light 
Lovers flight 

A brief passage in time 
Hidden away 
Dreamt of during the night 
Lovers flight 

A brief passage of time 
The changing of suns and moons 
Stars bright 
Before fading in the light 
Lovers flight 

Beneath the stars 
We ran 
To the edge of somewhere 
My heart filled with copper glow 
The trees I came to know 

Hand in hand 
Beneath the stars 
Before the suns' first light 
The suns' first blush

A POETS' ANGUISH

A POETS' ANGUISH

A poets' anguish
In the tears of mine
Beautiful words
Spilled over
The anguish.......
Divine

I can see you now
For you belong to me
Beautiful words
On a restless sea
Spilled over
What I know then
I felt inside
Deep in me

I can discover in a day
The love in me
To give it all away
In poetry

A poets' anguish
A heart, full of tears
Spilled over
You knew this
All those regretted years

The ignited spark
Caused it all
A word storm
That lit up
All of my dark

I saw many things
Some beautiful
Some stark
All in words
A cilice wrapped around my heart
I felt the dark
Sensed the light
I chose to be everything

THE LACE STAIRWAYS

The Princess of Faeries 
and the Faeries from Shadowfire 
Began a stairway 
Woven from gossamer thread 

It grew and grew 
Intricate designs 
Woven through 

The King of Earth 
Turned gossamer in to lace 
Lace to stone 
Decorated every stairway face 

Stairways wound their way 
Around turret and spire 
The rooms above 
The rooms below 
A marvel from Shadowfire 

The stairway to the Hall 
The greatest of them all 
Woven through, 
with love and joy 
From Faeries too 

Magic woven through 
From gossamer to lace, 
lace to stone 
From stone to stairway 
From stairway to our hearts

COMES A TIME

Comes a time, 
when things aren't working 
The way you feel, 
its not a crime 

Leave this constricting space, 
your true path, 
find your place 

This life change, 
part of your evolution 
To grow 
Find your solution 
The future so 

To run wild and free 
as far as the eye can see 
Shed your old face, 
enjoy style and grace 

Those who need it, 
need it so 
Feelings feed it, 
ready to blow 

Comes a time, 
the way you feel 
The way we all feel 
Earthly light 
To let go, 
move on to heavenly bright 

Comes a time, 
when you need more 
Than this pantomime 
To gracefully exist, 
then the  money you hold in your fist 
these things not missed 
These feelings ready to blow 
you need it so 

These heartfelt rings 
These important things 
we feel, 
with renewed zeal 

This curious time, 
felt by all, 
in their prime 
Who feel this call 

Comes a time 
To run free 
Listen to the pounding heart 
It is a new start............... 
for the new........ me 

These important things 
These heart felt rings 
This materialistic earth 
does not know....... 
what this is worth 
for they cannot face 
these things 
I embrace

PAINT THE SKY WITH STARS

The vast midnight blue 
Ready .............. 
Ready, for my stars too 

Reaching for my pallette, 
no words needed................ 
I was all set 
This midnight sky seeded 

I painted the sky with stars 
Jupiter and Mars............. 
Saturn and its rings........ 
So many wondrous things 

Mercury and Pluto......... 
The beautiful Venus light, 
especially bright! 
Such heavenly bodies so! 

These stars I hold 
The stories they told! 
The midnight sky................ 
begins to unfold 

I painted the sky with stars 
Each one held a thought 
A special light 
This I wrought, 
to illuminate the night 

The Earth light 
A jewel so bright! 
No blue can compare 
to this colour ...so rare 

Uranus, so far from home 
Somehow not alone 
The Milky Way, 
an accidental brush at play 

I painted the sky with stars 
This deep blue 
Now, you can know it too 
Starlight................ 
Falls on you

EAGLE

Mountain ,forest and stream..... 
I can dream 

I fly over them all,

Such heights 
Such delights 

Golden feathers to fly 
Wings to dream 
Things are not what they seem 
I can, but try 

Mountain,forest and stream.... 
I can dream 

The golden feathers I have let go 
This wind I will follow 
Will be here tomorrow 

I cannot deny, 
that I am meant to fly 
Upon these mighty wings, 
my heart sings 

Mountain,forest and stream.... 
I can dream 

Feathery gold, 
set against rich green 
This I hold............ 
deep in my chest 
This is where I have been 
All these thoughts suppressed 

Mountain,forest and stream.... 
I can dream 

There is no denying...... 
The time is near........... 
This is the time for flying 

For the bird inside....... 
Bursting free......... 
Flying high..... 
flying free.... 
Nothing to hide.... 
For all to see 

Mountain,forest and stream....

GLIDER

A gentle glide high above 
Nothing to hear 
Except the flow of air 
over my wings 
I looked for you 
far below 

A sweet delight 
to fly... 
in such light 

I carried you high, 
in my heart 
In to the light 
In to the blue sky 

Such blessed silence 
over my wings 
Wind rush 
Suns's crush 

I leave this earth, 
for a brief time 
Flying with the sun 
Sublime 

Thermals abound 
Sun , all around 
A sweet delight 
To fly in such light 

If I could see the wind, 
see it flow over me 
Gentle rolling blue sea 
Such glee! 

Towering cumulus 
blinding white 
In the fresh blue 
Carrying me too 
Such bliss!

IN THE SHADOWLANDS

In the Shadowlands
I chased the former me
I couldn’t catch it
I let it run free

I know, not this being
For it is not me
Anymore
I let it run free

In the Shadowlands
I have no fear
For it is not me
Anymore
I let it run free

I know who I am now
Such dark places
In the Shadowlands
Are not for me
I let it run free

I left that place
Of dark
It is not part of me
I embraced
The love and light
Of a Shadowfire
That lay in you
Lay in me

WINTER GEESE

As the geese flew north
Their honking cries
Could be heard
In clear Autumn skies

Heading home
For a winter
At Heartstone

Filled with stories
From the south
A gentle wind
Pushed them ever northwards
Grey wings, beating with ease

On a starkly beautiful day
Forty two geese
Flew through winter sun
To Heartstone
Where they will stay

Spinster's List

this very troubled old maid
so beaten down by life
wanted nothing so but not to fade
without being someone's wife

but until that time came about,
she had no choice but to carry on
and when she needed bad some groceries
to me she depended on, and hence you have this yarn...

just give me Spinster's list
and money to pay for it all
I run down to the supermarket,
I mean, this is what she needed, this is why the call...

I'm no big fan of big food shopping,
it's really too much a bore,
I'd far rather go bar hopping,
than spend hours in the store

but she needed me to help
I could never turn her down
she really was a nice lady,
I couldn't bear to see her frown

so off I go in search,
of the food she so much needed,
and back again an hour or two later
it could of been much longer,
but I had really speeded

someday, I sort'a wonder...
will someone shop for me?
If so, one thing will be different...
I'll, for him, how it felt to be.

I Knew It When I Saw Your Face

 I Knew It When I Saw Your Face
   
 
I knew it when I saw your face
I don't know your name
It makes no difference just the same

Do you believe in Love at First Sight? 
I hope and pray
You Will Say
'I just might'
Do you believe then...
...In taking off into flight 
I hope and pray you will say
'Outta Sight'

I knew it when I saw your face
I don't know your name
It makes no difference just the same

Not a word ever spoken
There is no need
Words our spoken in silence with our eyes
...With our minds
You and I...A breed of a special kind

Oh, how I long to make you mine
With you my rainy days shine
You make them feel oh, so fine
Oh, How I love to cuddle beside you by firelight

I knew it when I saw your face
Now that I know your name
It makes a difference just the same

THE RIDDLE OF THE KEYS

On a day like any other
Two keys were found
One delicate and fine
The other, heavy and of an old design
 
The Castle had no locks on its doors
They were protected by Faerie magick
The keys were very old
No one knew what they were used for
 
Was this set an earlier time?
When such things protected treasures,                                                                      
from covetous eyes?
When such things were locked up pleasures?
 
A key, delicate and fine
Perhaps for a Queen
A key of iron
Made for a King?
To hide something?
 
To find a door?
In which to place a key
To find a lock
Perhaps this is what it is for?
 
The keys were special too
An intricate design
It took the Princess of Magic sometime
To discover the clue
 
When is a key not a key?
When the keys are made fit together
Two keys become one
A map of the heart could be seen
 
In the Great Hall
Was a small hollow
High on the South Wall
The keys entwined
Was this the place to find
 
The keys fitted perfectly
One key cannot exist 
Without the other
Such is nature
The trees
The gentle rain
 
Once in the Great Hall
The true purpose of the keys
Was revealed to all
A gold key
Delicate and fine...
Is love...
Is sunshine...
An iron key,
Heavy in the heart
Heavy to bear
Remorseful
The pieces, fitted perfectly

The Mask

Reaffirm the reasoning behind the mask
Declare the sight seen
Eating of the fruit planted by my own hand
Absorbing the sweet flavor of joy unbound
I see an awesome hand
The strength of doubt which dared bound the heart
Knowing exactly who I am

Trembling within revealing the unseen
Knowing the shame, the dread within
Comforted by a voice unheard
I remove the mask
Releasing the majesty contained within
I therefore am confounded by the sight seen
I see it wasn't reasoning
Twas simplicity that ruled my soul

A wondrous light overwhelms my sight
Seeing now that which you have seen in me
Visions exploding truly enlightening
Freely expressing flight
Unleashed by the mask
The mask of doubt which I did not need

THE LOST SWORD

In the dark days of fighting hence
The Heartstone endured its' greatest peril
The power of magic on the battlements
Vanquished the wraiths
Knights fought and won
 
The arm, severed
clutching the sword
Fell into the Wraiths' black mist
It never hit the ground
A mailed fist,
that could not be found
 
A Knight can die...
Defending all that is right
All that is true
The sword lives forever
The years rolled by
 
A sword can live forever
Glittering bright
Never, never
Lose sight...
That a Knight can die
The soul lives on
Forever etched on the steel
Waiting to be found
 
Heartstone looked far...
During sunbright
Under star
The sword would not reveal
Its' light,
of the soul of a long dead Knight
  
The soul of a long dead Knight
A sword lost in time
The missing light
 
The sword, fell
From the battlements
In to the Wraiths' stinking hell
Piercing the horrors within
 
The sword embedded to the hilt,
in a horror of rags and bone
Blood spilt.
It slunk off, in the night, alone
 
Taking a sword
Taking the light
From the castle
From the knight
 
Where it lay,
was never known
The filth of rag and bone
Covered up, never to see the day
A sword that belonged to a Knight
 
Amongst the boulders and scree
In a glade of ferns
A sword to reveal
The light,
of a long lost Knight
It could be found by you
It could be found by me
 
A full moon rose
Shooting star , fell to the ground
In a starlit sky
A sword waiting to be found
 
The Princess of Stars,
followed the shooting star
Where it lay
In the shadow of a wood,
amongst boulder and scree
 
The Princess of Stars,
followed the shooting star
Where it lay
In the shadow of a wood
Amongst boulder and scree,
in the shadow of the night
 
A glint of steel
Amongst the scree
A sword to reveal
 
The Star Princess blew away the filth and rags
The sword, glittered and shone
The soul of a long dead Knight
Revealed in the light
 
The Princess touched the sword hilt
The name of the Knight glowed
For the sword showed
Her fathers' name
A lost Knight
Found by a shooting stars guiding light
 
A Knight cannot die
The sword lives on
The lost Knights ' light shone
In the hearts of you and I
 
A sword found
As sword to place in the great hall
A Knights' lost soul
A Knight to remember to us all

A FADING STAR

My star, fading 
In the cold light, 
of a new day 

Flashes of green 
Flashes of blue 
Fading,

Lost in light 
Drowned in a sun, 
waiting for night 

You cannot see, 
what you cannot find 
a fading star 
At could be you,

Deepening sky, 
emerging night 
Flashes of blue 
Flashes of green

Filled with me 
Filled with you 
Lost in star light

THE BOY FOR AUTUMN BECOMES A MAN

The boy lay asleep
So very young
In a castle keep
His story begun

An Earth King
With the strength of two castles
Began the passing
A crown for his son
His story begun

A boy , grew
Strong and tall
For, amongst the trees
He felt...
Heard their call

Everyday
A joy
So many new things
To discover
To learn
About his surroundings
Heartstone
What it all meant
For this boy

The beauty of trees
The seasons
A time to create
All he had learnt
From the wise ways
He could not wait

The growing of a boy
To man, you see
Steps learned
To one day
Become a King
Your Majesty....

Such exuberance
Tempered with maturity
A boy
Became a man
Became a king
Filled with love

CALM

Smooth clean wall, 
cool to touch, 
I must not fall 

I walk along, 
hand touching wall, 
my heart full of song, 
Me, 
standing tall 
I know whats going on 

For calm of head am I 
I must not fall, 
this wall is not for the wary, 
light and airy, 
it's not confined at all 

Calm 
My heart full of song, 
this  cool wall I kiss, 
fear and anguish, 
I do not miss 

Stretched out arms, 
cool walls I touch 
calm 
walking through, 
no sweat on palm 

This light I walk to, 
embraces me 
casts my shadow, 
behind me, 
all behind 
song in heart so, 
I am not blind, 
for,forward I see 

Calm and light, 
must not rush, 
in to the white 
there is no crush 
in the bright

Shores of Fantasy

     At the edge of
the ocean we stand poised
Ready to be taken to faerie
     The land is perilous 
for some
      but it calls to us
as it called to Prentice 
     long ago
  We all yearn for a 
         star on our brows
To walk in mist - enshrouded meadows
     and to see flowers of unearthly beauty
growing
       A riot of joyous color
        The touch of a magical hand
will give us this chance
        In Faerie eternal spring
and lights from the north
        form the patterns we love
    The King and Queen 
of that land ate calling us
    Let's leave these mortal shores
    And hear the lovely 
sounds
    Of golden harps 
and flutes
played by ethereal beings
The golden stories 
        flow here like a river
This magic
     will change us
        FOREVER

Exploring a Mystery!

 Exploring a Mystery!
   
 
Your smile
Brings the warmth of the sun to my heart
When we are apart
It is you I think of in blissful memory 
for the rest of my days.

Your hair unfurled 
In golden locks of glorious disarray
As the sun shines upon you.

Your eyes inviting
As we frolic near the water stream
Nearer you come to me
Beaming
Shining
Your beauty Blinding
Blinding you may be I cannot help but be
Hypnotized by your captivating beauty
I must have you...My heart pounds like a 
drum. Happines has entered my life.

THIS MYSTICAL YOU

This mystical you 
knows my every thought 
This slender silver thread 
that connects me to you 
These feelings read 
These feelings caught 

This mystical you 
What you do......... 
to my soul 
Opening up the power 
like a budding flower 

Instinctively knowing 
The mystical you, 
keeps it all flowing, 
in to my deepest place, 
unlocking the heart case, 
filling it too 

Slender silver thread 
winds its way through, 
the mystical you, 
from heart to head 
Flowing too 

What you do, 
petals unfold, 
colours they hold 
This mystical you 
These thoughts foretold 

My deepest place, 
my opened heart case 
Delicate silver thread 
My thoughts read, 
by mystical you

BY THE LIGHT OF THE STARS

A mere speck on the dark blue, 
turning slowly 
Looking for you 
By the light of the stars 

Translucent glow... 
It is you... 
That I got to know... 
By the light of the stars 

Such emotion, 
was there all along 
A secret ocean 
By the light of the stars 

A caress of hand, 
brushed your thoughts away 
Your head on my chest 
By the light of the stars 

Love , reflected, 
in the colour of mars 
On the dark blue 
By the light of the stars 

A mere speck... 
Turning slowly 
Looking for you 
By the light of the stars

A PARTING OF THE WAYS

To many, Shadowfire 
A new home 
Yet for a few, 
Castle Heartstone 
Was the place to be 

Lost in mist and magic 
Castle Heartstone will always remain 
To some, a fond memory 
To others, a source of anguish and pain 

For some, wanted to return... 
For a castle cannot be 
Without King and a Queen 
Without a Faerie, 
or whispering tree 

The kings of Air and Earth 
The Queen of Summer and Spring 
Each a Faerie ,they did bring 
Heartstone Eagle too 
For, on the backs of eagles 
They would fly 
To find Castle Heartstone 
Bring it back 
From when it was hidden from from view 

Such excitement... 
A little sadness and fear 
For ,now they would only meet 
In the Great Hall 
For the Traditional Feast, 
but once a year 

A parting of the ways 
Provisions were made 
How soon passed the days 
The last walk in the forest glade 

Soon it was time to fly 
To soar in a blue sky 
To find a way 
Find the stream of sighs 

Tears were shed 
Partings are always sad 
Shadowfire had grown close to their hearts 
The parting of the ways 
This was the time too 
To fly across a sea of blue 

Thus, in a dawn of a pink sky 
From the Sentinel Tower 
Six eagles flew into the sky 
Carrying with them 
The thoughts, best wishes and love 
of those far below 
The eagles golden glow, 
shining above

Tell Me The Story Of Jesus

O come tell me the story of Jesus on Jordan's stormy bank
Come let's us break bread together down by the old rugged cross
Lift  Lift every voice and sing Joyful Joyful We adorn Thee
Let's come and crown Him with many crowns for the beauty of the earth
For the Lord is my Shepard Pass me not O gentel Saviour
Keep me leaning on the everlasting arm and take the name of Jesus with you
For He is purer and whiter than snow So let me come face to face
With my Christ my Lord amidst the lily of the valley 
For I love to tell the story that there is a foundation 
Since Jesus came into my heart  For this is my Father's World
Which He leadeth me down the path When the morning comes
Come join just a closer walk with Thee 
For the church's are our foundations Of O God our hope in ages past



Tribute To Christ Our Lord

FOR HERE, I AM KING

The places I have seen 
No one can know 
Such sights I have seen 
Pretty fields below 

All on wings of gold 
Far above the earth 
Soaring 
In the blue 
For here... 
I am king

So Lost

Some times I get so lost when I’m alone
The world is made of water and I’m a simple stone
When I try to run, I fall straight down
Now the weight of the world on my shoulders has a crushing sound 

Over my head in a dark part of the world
Alone and drowning as my heart is so chilled
I become washed up, crushed, cold and blue
Life has become a struggle I can’t get through

Other rocks come down hard on me
Stuck in this gutter means they won’t let me be
Each one makes a chip or takes a crack
One day they will surely break my back

I wish they would stop trying to kill metal with rust
Have them all come at once and face me till I’m dust

This new form of life I would gladly be!
For dust in the water becomes sand by the sea
Forever and ever after I would be so free
The warm sunshine would be so heavenly

In this world my pain would mostly subside
But the Lord keeps me humble by bringing in the tide

Let us Learn

Past structures of the city streets
   Down paths of light
where angels meet
   You'll walk near the golden flame
Watch dancers 
  as they taste the rain
And as you'll know  -  as you'll soon see
Llght from above will ease your 
        Pain

I SAW A GIRL

I saw a girl standing there.... 
She looked at me.... 
My heart, laid bare 
What she could see 

In her eyes.... 
Told me everything 
Everything I needed to know 
Restless sighs 
I think she wanted me so 

What to do? 
Where to start? 
If I only knew, 
the quiet murmurings in my heart 

I saw a girl, 
with golden hair 
Standing there, 
with my heart in her eyes 
Her eyes, deep in my heart 

The quiet murmurings of my heart 
She looked at me 
My heart fell at her feet 
She picked me up you see... 
Kissed me with her eyes... 
and walked away free....

SOLITUDE

My hand trailed in the wake...
Of an ocean
 
The solitude of ocean and sky
The wind,
sighing by
 
When an ocean met the sky
My hand trailed in the wake....
of a wind sighing by
 
upon silvered wings,
I crossed a jewel that was the sky
The setting, the ocean
Sparkling
 
In my solitude of flying
Shades of blue...
On an ocean
In a sky
All I heard was my heart , sighing

A DREAMSTONE HEART

 
The last beams of light
Left a Castle in shadow
Dusk became the night
 
The Dreamstone awoke in you
Deep in your heart
A fire ,like no other
Passion and desire too
 
You became everything
A Queen...
A King...
Everything you imagined
A Whispering Tree
A warm,sweet South wind
 
Leave this place in your heart
For a Dreamstone
Trust in you
A test of faith
In dreamlight
For the stories
What you have become
You already knew

THIS INFERNAL MAZE

Every where you turn, 
the child inside, 
wants to learn, 
in this maze of fern 

The green 
has once been... 
..you 

Only to look above, 
see the love 
Above the green 
Step around, 
seek the sound 

This joyous sound 
is what you seek 
What can be found, 
not for the meek 

Hear the nightingale 
deep in the dark, 
rather than the wail 
Leave the fern 
and dont return 

Seek people of your kind 
Together you will flock, 
side by side, 
you won't mind 
For you are the rock 

The path straight and true 
This maze of fern, 
how it does twist and turn, 
but how you learn 
and you know it too 

Good draws you in 
and so it should 
The battle of fern and childhood, 
all this to learn, 
in this maze of fern 

Lift your eyes, 
stop your cries 
You are this teen 
stuck in the green 
Maze of fern 
of which you must not return 

Now you are all grown 
The ferns you have sown 
Are they straight and true? 
Or do they twist and turn? 
This maze of fern 
which you must not return 

The people of a kind 
are what you must find 
This you must discern, 
in the maze of the fern 
Start to flock, 
for you, are the rock 

Deep in maze of fern , 
to your starting place 
It's easy to return 
look above, 
see your true face, 
see the love 

Lift your eyes 
from this maze 
Look to the skies, 
look for new ways 

Seek only the wise, 
who flock, 
for you can be the rock 
Far from this maze of fern 
of which your childhood 
wants to learn 
and dont return

SWORD, the anger of truth

The sword, 
buried deep in its' scabbard, 
tempered by fire, 
strength it holds, 
I desire 

Metal fashioned by human hands, 
skill from distant lands. 
Beauty of proportion and line, 
weapon so fine 

For the sword in its' scabbard, 
is like the truth hidden, 
brought out in anger, 
to do its' bidding 

Flash of steel 
I turn and wheel 
arcing round, 
truth be found 

For to be sheathed, 
nobody can hurt, 
no anger unleashed, 
no falldown, in dirt 

But truth must come out willingly, 
now and then, 
rasp of steel,but when? 

The sword always finds home, 
piecing deep, 
this sharp steel i hone 
makes truth weep 
blood and bone 

The truth used as a weapon of war, 
pulled out of its' hiding place. 
These are the things I saw. 
It takes no prisoners,only deaths' face, 
running down the blade 

This truth of metal, 
is in fine fettle, 
for the sword out of its' hiding place, 
with death you must face 
swish of air, 
into battle you must wade, 
heart beginning to tear, 
carry the truth blade 

Flash of steel,I turn and wheel, 
arcing round, 
truth be found 

For the truth 
can be used in rage, 
to wound and maim. 
No wisdom of sage, 
to guide whence it came 

Flame bright steel,you must deal 
with the things you feel, 
for arcing round 
truth can be found

CASTLE OF LIGHT

This light, 
that absorbs me, 
feels right, 
you see.......... 

My movements effortless, 
my lengthened stride, 
clothes tossed, far and wide 
for I run to you, 
for I want to be by your side 

This castle of light, 
of many rooms. 
Some of gold and blue, 
shines bright 

I run to the parapet, 
light all around, 
I leap and soar, 
the light knows what i'm destined for. 
I make no sound, 
for I am not ready yet 

I orbit this castle of light, 
keen eyes from above, 
looking for my love, 
flying in this unearthly air, so bright 

Waiting for her transition, 
to my plane of thought, 
for it is me she sought, 
of her own volition 

This castle bright and blue, 
holds me and you, 
in lustrous light 
of golden hue 

For I see you down below, 
on the parapet. 
Let your love flow, 
leap off and go, 
soar, 
you know what it's for, 
your destiny, 
with me 

Castle bright 
of many rooms, 
some gold and blue, 
wondrous light 

For, as I love you, 
you love me too 
bonded in the white, 
light so bright 

Castle of light, 
rooms bright, 
you and I, 
time to fly

I CHASED A SUN

I chased a sun
In all its' glory
Across the sky
It was such fun!

Down it went
Its' colours. spent
As I travelled 
Climbing to the stars

Through Saturns' rings

I could not stop
These feelings

I could not believe
The blessed silence
Of stars
That glowed
Here
In me

MELODY RIVER 

Water, 
Over river stone 
Found its' way in to my heart 
Melody river

My love to flow 
Like a melody 
Like a river 
In to your heart 

Musical notes to call 
Flowing through your heart 
Water over river stone 
A waterfall 

Melody river 
Take me 
In to your heart 
Let me fall 

In a mystic way 
A cold pale moon 
Melody river 
Water over stone 
Washed over me 
Took me away 

My love to flow 
Like a melody 
Like a river 
In to your heart

The Dark King

"All blades perish that pierce the Dark King" - J.R.R. Tolkien "The Return of the 
King"

    Ringwraith - Morgul lord
    Veiled in shadow
    riding on a dark black steed
    Prisoner of his own desire for power
    He has become a slave of 
    Mordor
    Once proud leaders of 
    mortal men     
    The nine drew them 
    all to the Necromancer
    Now they must do his 
    bidding
    The most powerful of the nine rides forth
    Seeking the one
    which their shadowy master
    is searching for
    Nine walkers set out 
    against the Nine Riders
    The leader of the Dark Riders is a wraith twisted
    by lust for power
    The nine walkers 
    have one who
    has resisted temptaion
    and who will soon be
    dressed in white
   The darkness versus the light
   Thus it is now
   Thus it shall ever be

IN MY SHED

When colours of leaves turn
From green to red
They exist on a page
In a land I call my own
In my shed

I soared like an eagle
Above mountains and scree
Travelled on ships of wood
Saw many beautiful things
All of it...
Made by me

Trees and castles
Queens and Kings
Faeries too
I saw so many stars
Of every colour and and hue

Upon a page
I felt such angst
The heart bled
The words healed part of me
The rest.....
I let it be
In my shed

The shape of words,
and their meanings
What it does to me
On the pages of my mind
I am set free

In my shed
I can be
Anything
All is written
Nothing said...

A myriad stars
Inhabit my shed
The soft colours of Autumn
Come forth
From inside my head

I dreamt of so much
A beautiful thing too
To be nurtured 
Given flight
For, in my shed
I grew...
In the magic of words
From inside my head

THE COMING OF THE SPRING QUEEN

When winter became a Spring day..... 
The Spring Queen came ,with out delay 
She approached through the Whispering Trees 
Everything she touched, turned to green 
Fresh shoots,budding leaves..... 
Flowers to be seen 

The Eastern Wind, 
bringer of life and green 
Followed the Spring Queen 
The awakening........... 
The greening.......... 

The Castle gates opened wide 
The Spring Queen walked inside.............. 
The walled garden grown 
Welcomed into Castle Heartstone 

Her fingers touched the wall........ 
Instantly the flowers grew.......... 
In places not before seen 
Such is the power of the Spring Queen 

The air filled with the sound of birds............ 
Birdsong, too beautiful for words 
For, there was life everywhere 
The Spring days,so fair 

The mood of the Castle lifted 
The life,the colour 
The Spring Queen, gifted 

The bare trees filled out, 
the welcoming shade 
The walled garden transformed............ 
Colour spilling everywhere............ 
Spring is in the air 

Such joy and happiness.......... 
Bursting through 
The Whispering Trees 
The East Wind breeze 
The meadow flowers, so blue 

Fresh flowers filled the Castle........... 
Most of all in the Great Hall......... 
Where the Heartstone lay, 
on the north wall 

The hum of bees, 
buzzing on the breeze 
Spring honey,so sweet........... 
A real treat! 

The Spring Queen......... 
Giving birth........... 
To a new and beautiful earth 
The land lay green..... 
The flowers, to be seen 

These flowers,sublime 
The emerging springtime............ 
All too soon the days grew hot......... 
The days grew long......... 
The days had new meaning............ 
Soon it would be Summer Queens' time 
the intense greening

STAR OF THE SEA

On the sea of moon light
A ship sailed
Faerie glow
Star bright
A course to follow
 
Some journeys begin
Others, fate
A sails' reflected light
To take you into the night
 
This quiet lap of sea
Against the ship
The sweet perfume of wood
The stars
Following me
 
On a night
Filled with sky
Myriad stars
Turned
Swirls of light
Lit for you and I
 
It is in the dreams
That stars , so bright
On that quiet night
Could take me
As far as I could imagine
On a journey
About to begin
 
To follow a star
Upon the moonlit sea
The faeries soft glow on me
It is my destiny

STORM

As night became day
Stars dimmed ,
then faded away
 
The sea, tinged with white spray
Welcomed the dawn sky
The red in the east
Brought in the beginning,
of a stormy day
 
The wind rose
Storm clouds gathered on the horizon
The suns' hazy glow
Lost in grey tumbling clouds
A ships' gleaming wetness shone
 
The waves grew higher
The wind tore through
A ships captain, on the deck
Such beautiful nature too
 
The suns' hazy glow
Could be seen
Between
Scudding clouds
Roaring wind
Gunmetal sea
Rising so
 
Running before the wind
The ship ploughed on 
Masts and spars whistling
Such gleaming wetness
Felt upon your face
 
The exhilaration!
The running race
The sums' hazy glow
Of a wind roaring
The spray on your face
 
White capped gunmetal sea
Pushing relentlessly
A wooden ship
Gleaming wet
On its' course
Riding the storms' force

A RIVER SONG

Let it flow free 
Music in liquidity 
Down to the sea 

A drop to fall 
Through the night 
The coming dawn 
Cannot it take it all 

Let it flow free 
Music in liquidity 
Down to the sea 

On the river 
Sweet and clear 
The water ran 
Through boulder 
Through river sand 

Let it flow free 
Music in liquidity 
Down to the sea 

The river twisted and turned 
The easiest path learned 
Picking up sand and clay 
Every night 
Every day 

Let it flow free 
Music in liquidity 
Down to the sea 

The rush of water 
In streams 
In rivers 
In dreams 

Let it flow free 
Music in liquidity 
Down to the sea 

The music of water 
With a drop to fall 
Created a symphony 
Flowing to the sea 

Let it flow free 
Music in liquidity 
Down to the sea 

Soft tinkling of the river 
Meeting the roar of the sea 
A river song 
Lost for eternity

THE POWER OF YOU

You are now under the spell
For , love and magic
Have found their way
Deep in your heart
The power of a Heartstone
Lies in you

The power to change
Everything around
Your starlight
Will leave all
Spellbound

Go now.
In to a world
That does not believe
Of Love
Of Magic

Of a Heartstone
That lies, deep within
That the key
Is always there
Looking in

Be a gatherer
A seeker of a Heartstone
For you have many a room
To look for
To find in you
In me
A gem
Whose light will change
And those who wish it true

In your heart
To soar
Like an eagle
For this what love does
What it is all for
A Shadowfire
A Heartstone
Such gem light
The power of you

I think of your journey too
Of Castles
Faerie wings
To be a King
In a world
So unforgiving
The changes in you
For Tapestries, read
Evil, slain
Come with me
Let us, together
Travel again

ECHOES

My previous words, 
I have spoken 
return to me like birds 
strange how this has awoken 

For these kind words never die, 
but return to fly 
For good things we say 
are like birds at play 

Kind words will always exist, 
unlike shouting and use of fist 

kind words never die, 
they will return to fly 

These words echo, 
rebound if you will 
for good words never go 
they never maim or kill, 
always they flow 

these echoes, 
sound out your heart 
and beat like a drum, 
many good words to come 

for words never die, 
for the good ones fly 
bad ones decay, 
brought up another day 
swear and curse 
all for the worse 

the good words you hold in your heart and hand, 
release these words 
for they are your golden birds, 
let them populate the land, 
let them go 
for they will  return as an echo 

for golden words 
never die, 
but always rebound, 
as words of golden, 
let them fly, 
let them flow 
hear their sound

THE FIRE KING

THE FIRE KING

When the world began
In the maelstrom
The Fire King was born
Such heat
Such flame
Only a King 
Could tame
All within

The seas,
of molten rock
He pushed to the surface
It has begun
A world
In a land of magic
Beneath a new sun

In the fire
Lies passion
Love too
For a King,desire

When the world cooled
A king did not
Volcanoes erupt
A sign of a King
In full flow

For, fire
Has its' glow
Irresistible to all
Loved in many ways
Love, desire
Flames flickering
In full flow

You felt such warmth
Light too
Of a King
Whose fire flickered
Within
All he had
All he could bring

Something lay in me

Something
To be released
I gave it up
Let it fly
Let it be

I cannot define
What I gave up
Let it be

AN AUTUMN KING

The growing of a boy
To a man
Steps learned
The passage of journeys
Of the heart
Of the mind
Of the trees

There can only be
One Earth King
Love can never die
He lives
For, he is part of everything

His crown
Now decorated with leaves
From an Autumn Queen
For a boy born in Autumn
Became a man
Became a king
Became everything

The Whispering trees
Sent a leaf
For a new King to wear
For a King crowned
Upon his knees
The responsibility to bear
Of Heartstone

The new King stood up
Proud and tall
With Autumn leaves in his crown
The gathering of the Elements
The Seasons
The Winds
Celebrated in the Great Hall

Faeries , flew
Trees, whispered again
A beginning
Something new
For a king
A beginning
To a new reign

The Heartstone  glowed
For a King
Who stood tall
An Autumn boy
The joy
The love
Brought in to a hall

A sense of sadness
For the passing
Of an Earthen King
His face
His stories
Now on the Tapestry of Magic
That hung in the Great Hall

His love
For everything
The Learning of the Wise Ways
His humility
Is what makes a great King

The leaf
Given by the Whispering Trees
Glowed
Upon his cloak of forest bark and leaves
He kissed it,
and believed

A sense of joy
For an Autumn King
The tears that ran down his face
Were tears of sweet gentle rain
For a boy
A  new  beginning
Born in autumn
Became a man
Became a King

You must feel it...... 
Just like I ! 

Ocean.... 
Blue symphony...... 
Blue sound....... 
All around........ 
Blue potion 

Ocean, to roam 
Ocean, is my home 
Can you feel? 
My thoughts 
Can you steal? 

The future is blue 
Blue as an ocean 
Blue is the view 
that I hold with you 

Blue horizon....... 
Blue sky...... 
Blue ocean........ 
To lay your eyes on 
This is I 
My blue emotion

MOONLIGHT FLIGHT

The clouds sped by the Moon 
The wind blowing 
The Moon............ 
Magnificently glowing 

The stars crept through 
The leaves rustled 
The trees whispered too 

Above , 
The Moon........ 
Shining through........ 
Touching me too 
Silver light........ 
Feeling right 

The Moonlight 
Lifting me 
Silently flying 
Deep in darkest night 

How this light.... 
The Moon bright 
Takes me too........ 
Above the night........ 
Into you......... 

The clouds sped by the Moon 
I hear you sigh....... 
Flying high 
The clouds below.... 
You wonder why 

That silver thread......... 
The paths you tread 
The Moon......... 
Glowing soon 
The paths I have led 

The inner glowing 
Wind, blowing 
Moonlight........ 
My guide......... 
In to you......... 
Deep inside 
The path....... 
True

HEARTSTONE TOWER

The Tower
Formed from the rock
Of Heartstone Mountain
Rose high
Piercing the sky

A place for Eagles
For, majesty
and beauty
To fly
Protect the sky

Everyday
At dawn
Eagles fly
Above a Castle
High
Above Heartstone Forest

Grace and power
In a dawn sky
Pink and red
Launched from Heartstone Tower
Upon golden wings
You sped

MY FIRST FLIGHT

I looked out from the nest
Sun filtered through
Leaves of richest green
A perfect day too
To put my wings to the test

A perfect blue sky
Could be seen
Amongst leaves of richest green
A time to fly

For weeks now
I waited patiently
As down grew
In to flying feathers
That would take me up
In to the blue
From my tree

The first step
The first flight
Is the hardest
Courage too
For, it is needed
To fly
In to the blue

I am not an eagle
Yet, I will fly like one
To leave the nest
In to the blue
In to the sun

I stood on the edge
Looked upwards to the sky
On my first flight
This was my time
My test
For, I must fly

I leapt off
In to the unknown
Wings beating furiously
I climbed skyward
I could not believe
That this was me

I am not eagle
Yet, I will fly like one
I have left the nest
I live in the blue
With wings of sun

THE SEA

It all comes back to the sea 
How strong is the spirit... 
Restless in me 

The sea can take me , 
in so many waves 
So completely 

The sea, a vessel 
In which I travel, 
in which I nestle 

Soft ripples flow 
Clouds above 
The sea I came to know 

The sun danced on the sea 
The moon covered with silver 
A restless spirit... 
Roaming in me 

The vastness of the sea, 
in which I roam 
Such fluid beauty, 
is my home

IT'S MY SKY

When I want to........ 
I can fly 
It's my sky 

The clouds passing me by 
It's my sky 
Do or die 
When I want to......... 
Anytime soon......... 
I can fly....... 
All the way to the moon 
Why? 
It's my sky 
My time to go 
My time to fly 

The clouds passing me by 
Pink and red........ 
It's my sky 
Upwards I sped 
My time to fly 

My time to go....... 
My time to fly........ 
It's now or never 
It's my sky 
My time............ 
Passing me by

SHADY TREE

I rest below shady tree 
Pink blossoms, 
fall on me 

The shade ,so sweet 
Shelter from this heat 
I look upward......... 
To the tree 
Pink blossoms........... 
Fall on me 
The place to be............. 
The place for me........... 

Shady tree..... 
Made for me 
Leafy shades, 
never fades 

Pink blossom, 
drifting down 
Lifts my frown 
Pink blossom.......... 
From the tree 
Falls on me 

Shady tree 
belongs to me 
The heart lifted 
Pink blossoms.......

THE JUNGLE

30,000 insect species per mile, 
half of them in my space 
whirr of wings, 
none of whch make me smile 

Hot fetid air 
decay of leaves 
humidity overwhelms me 
i cannot breathe 

Dense impenetrable green, 
rank pools of water 
holds things i have never seen 

The twitter and call of things unseen 
leaves much to the imagination 
my wild thrashings, 
my curses and condemnation 

Leafy clutter abounds every where 
yet nothing is wasted 
nature's powerhouse recycled 
every thing eaten,everything tasted 

Dark gloom of triple canopy, 
day like night 
night,stygian darkness 
terrifies me 

For the jungle man has no place,nothing 
for the jungle,the insects are king 

Frogs croak,hidden things chatter 
flash of colour,nothing seen 
stench of decayed matter, 
everything green 

Hot jungle,constant drip of water, 
razor sharp bamboo, 
makes me falter 

This moving green mass holds me in its web, 
the 30,000 insects, 
i dread 

Time to go quickly, 
for i am not of the jungle, 
which makes me poor and sickly 

Leave,for the 30,000 insects have evicted me 
dont worry,i'll go you'll see 
whirr of wing 
croak of frog 
escapes me

FEATHERS

Feathers to fly 
Feathers to soar 
Feathers ........ 
are what you wore 

Feathers of gold 
Clothe you 
Reborn..... 
So I'm told 

Feathers to fly.............. 
Feathers for sky 

Such delights 
Such journeys 
Such flights 

Spread these wings.......... 
Experience these things 

Feathers to fly 
Feathers to ride 
The blue sky wide 
To not..... 
is to die 

Skim past, 
gnarled rock 
Fly! 
If it were your last! 

Clouds of blinding white 
Feathered flight 
Feathered wing 
Feathered tail 
You cannot fail 

Feathers given to me 
feathers given to you 
Feathers for all to see 
Feathers to try 
Feathers to fly

A DAUGHTER OF LIGHT

Born under a starry night.... 
This I must tell.. 
The night, the star fell.......... 
Sent a daughter of light 

This clear night....... 
she came as a gift...... 
you see.... 
A daughter of light, 
in a world of night 
It was meant to be 

The heart was right, 
when that star fell 
It sent a daughter of light 
These thoughts dwell 

Only love can bring......... 
a girlchild..... 
on a night.... 
so calm, 
so mild........ 
Bathed in starlight, 
her heart did sing 

When stars fall, 
on clear nights 
Daughter of lights, 
come into the world 
Bringing their love unfurled 

A beautiful and rare event......... 
When a star can fall 
What a star sent, 
love unfurled, 
on a clear night 
A daughter of light, 
to illuminate the world

MISTY MORNING

Mist lay snug in the hollows 
Quietly, 
in the time before sun 

A thick blanket too, 
covering the green 
In a land of mist, 
tall spires, 
rising through 

A swathe of hand, 
pushed away, 
mist from this land, 
brightening day 

Quiet misty morning 
tall spires, 
rising through 
Pale Eastern light 
Dawning 

An eagle, 
so high 
Above the tall spires 
Above the mist 
Looking for eastern light 
The disappearing night 
Now is the time, 
to fly

WAS A TIME...

Was a time.. 
When love was all  true 
Gentleness too 

A red sighing sun 
Sinking below 
The depths of my heart 
The day is done 

Was a time.. 
you felt it too 
in the depths of my heart 
Emotion too 

A star, 
faded blue 
Replaced a red sighing sun 
Flickering fire 
You knew it too 

Stars and suns, 
fade away 
Night and day 
Love endures 
Gentleness too 

You are my sun 
You are my star 
My flickering fire 
Gentle light 
Gentle night 
The day is done

DUSKY STONE

Dark stones........... 
Painted in dusky dark 
Deepening hues 
Deepening views 

Dusky gold 
Dusky dark 
Dusky stone.......... 
We are not alone 

Dusky stones, 
gather on the shore 
Dusky rock, 
beginning to flock 

Dark stones on a dark sea 
Flocking on the shore 
The colour night, 
is what they wore, 
or so it seemed to me 

The quiet rippling, 
of the dusky sea 
Gold stippling, 
of dusky sky 
Would you agree? 
This belongs to you and I? 

This dark wet glistening 
Quiet ripple of sea 
Rock listening 
This might be......... 
You or me 
Set on a dusky sea 

Dusky rock, 
beginning to flock 
Dusky sky 
Dusky gold, 
passing by 

For you and I, 
are a dusky stone 
For we are not alone 
under gold dusky sky

Hidden in a book 
To be opened...

MAN OF NO SUBSTANCE

Touch the surface, 
and slide through, 
this new  world 
needs exploring too 

New people to meet, 
new things to see 
What will I find? 
things of a similar kind? 

For these people have been here  before, 
done things good and bad. 
Made some people sad, 
some happy, 
for these people have been here before 

Repeated lives relearning, 
past loves,past actions yearning 

White light hurts my eyes, 
white,bright water reflection. 
Shed my skin and past ties. 
Is this  my resurrection? 

For this world is not the same, 
as our own. 
Money,sex and fame 

Touch the surface and slide through, 
join me in this adventure too 

You can enter this world, 
at any time. 
Through action and inaction, 
through accident or design 

The people that you meet 
have no substance to their being. 
You can see right through them, 
you, the all seeing 

I would travel to this place, 
book my ticket on the plane 
but not in my lifetime, 
just in case, 
my life is not on the wane 

For to touch the surface 
and slide through, 
the people you meet 
one touch will confirm 
that they have no substance 

You look as white as a ghost here. 
Dont worry there is nothing to fear, 
for now we are all the same . 
Money sex and fame, 
don't apply here 

For you now ,have no substance 
in this world 
or the last world, 
in this instance

WHEN I WAS A BOY

Once upon a time
in a world...
You cannot see,
was a place for you and me

Fields in which to run
Enchanted trees to climb...
In a land of beautiful sun
This was a time...

Long ago, far away
how I ache...
For those days...
When a Heartstone,
lay in my heart,
and I learnt the Wise Ways

The sound of lute filled the air
Magic too
Trees of soft colour,
shaded the castle from view

So many places to play
Enchanted rooms
Nooks and crannies
Finding a hiding way

The changing seasons
Beautiful in their nature
Queens and Kings
The way of things

Such joy and harmony,
amongst the whispering trees
A Stream of Sighs
Watching Heartstone eagles fly
This was a time...

For a young boy,
to lie back in a field of corn
The King of Air sculpting clouds
Watching eagles fly
Faeries being born...
This was a time...

Once upon a time,
in a world you once saw
Behind a secret door...
Is a place for you and me

DEEP IN TO THE BLUE

Chance meeting
Sparked too
A glance, meeting
I was lost in the blue
 
What could I do?
Immerse myself
Deep in to the blue
 
Perfect sapphires
Sparkled too
Reached down
Took my heart
What could I do?
 
They illuminated my heart,
that no one else could do
I immersed my self
Deep into the blue
 
I never saw her again
Eyes, so blue
Her delightful laugh
I will miss that too

AN ELVES' TALE

Softly, 
in a moonlit meadow 
A Heartstone was laid 
Borne from a shooting star 
Faintest whisper from the trees, 
was heard on the breeze 
The moonglow... 
A legend from long ago 

Softly... 
Elves,no one knew.. 
where they came 
For the Heartstone, 
amongst the trees 
The moonglow 

A single touch from the Heartstone 
Curious eyes revealed 
A strange glow, 
lit up the elves 
Enchantment, 
it will bestow 

They carried it many miles 
Through trees and forest wood 
Through mountain snow 
Closer to the mountain, 
the strange stone began to glow 
Such colour 
Such fire 
It touched all 
The elves,knew not... 
yet they understood 

Glow it did... 
bright... 
The elves, 
they would bid 
Took the stone into the night 

Rocks and stones moved, 
forming a door 
A whispered word, 
and the stone was taken 
In to the heart of the mountain 
All was quiet 
Nothing stirred 

The first of many eagles came 
Circling the mountain 
The elves named the strange stone, 
with the strange glow 
Heartstone 

For, all who saw 
For, all who touched 
Felt the glow, 
deep inside 
From then on... 
They were never alone 
Blessed by the thing they called... 
Heartstone 

The mountain became known 
as Heartstone mountain 
Why the eagles came, 
No one could say, 
what was true 
Yet deep down, 
the Elves and the mountain, knew 

The Elves kept the secret many years 
they had trust in the Heartstone... 
In time.. 
It would reveal it'self 
To all... 
King, 
Queen, 
Faeries 
and an Elf!

THE GOLDEN SOUL

I step ashore 
I now know............ 
What is is all for 
To come this far so 

These people mingle, 
my thoughts tingle 
These spirit lights, 
change these dark nights 

This ethereal glow 
Emanates from the isle 
Known only to us so 
The ones chosen to be......................... 
The happy 

Dark glassy sea, 
protects me 
Those who live, 
those who forgive..................... 
Come to be 

Golden lives, 
step ashore 
They now know, 
what it is all for 
What the spirit contrives, 
golden lives 
Carried by golden dhow 

This golden dawn, 
new lives reborn 
The golden throng 
This is where they belong 

For the life now passed, 
the golden soul continues to last 
The spirit lights, 
that mingle 
Light up the dark nights, 
their thoughts tingle 

This happy place to be 
So far,far away, 
on the dark glassy sea 
Is much more than I can say, 
for the golden spirits mingle.................. 
and play 

Spirit world, 
my golden light unfurled 
Spirit light 
on an island 
So bright

GOLDEN JOURNEY

Gold sails of light, 
silently carrying me 
in dead of night 

Soft billow of golden sail, 
takes the lead, 
I hold the rail, 
watching increasing speed 

This dead of night, 
glassy dark blue sea, 
this silence, 
carries me 
Far,with gold sails of light 

I do not steer this vessel, 
I am its only passenger, 
my thoughts I must wrestle 

This glow from golden light, 
from sail, 
through the night, 
carries me , 
far on dark glassy sea 

No ripple disturbed, 
golden sails reflected 
on dark glassy sea, 
I am unpeturbed, 
no fear detected, 
for this ship only carries me 

No stars to guide 
in this dark of night, 
this silent ship does glide 
with gold sails of light 

For ,far ahead 
is an island 
bathed in soft yellow light 
is this where I have been led? 
For I see many gold sails, 
so bright! 

These golden sails of light, 
carry me 
back to the fold, 
for the precious cargo that they hold, 
is my soul 

I step ashore, 
I now know what is is for, 
my body I leave behind, 
a new beginning I find 

This dark glassy sea 
is not for me, 
gold sails of light 
are what makes it right, 
for this is meant to be 

For,in this new land 
the golden sails have spanned, 
carried me here 
For I have no fear 
For I am........ only me 


Gold sails of light 
over dark glassy sea 
Silently carrying me 
to island ,so bright

DREAMS,OPEN WIDE

Soothing silence, 
faint whisper of wind, 
such calm, 
as I sit beneath shady palm 

I close my eyes , 
feeling warmth on my face, 
relaxed sigh, 
this is my place 

For the job is done, 
my sleep has come, 
my dreams begun 

I drift away, 
book falls to my side, 
my dreams open wide 
my mind ready  to play 

I travel far 
to my blue sparkling star 
many miles of space 
crossed in an instant, 
no sense of pace 

A sparkle of blue 
and you can see it too 
For you and I, 
dreams open wide, 
cross the divide 

For dreams are good, 
take you far and wide, 
but poorly understand 
Enjoy the ride 

The  journeys I take 
in the infinity of my mind 
are one of a kind 
that I make 

No such thing 
as the impossible dream 
All can happen it seems, 
become a bird on the wing 

These clouds swirl below 
slowly turning 
not far to go 
This earthly release, 
my dream 
For I am at peace 

This limitless space 
My dream takes me far 
Dark world below, 
ahead sparkling star 
not far to go, 

This freedom of thought 
and mind 
overcomes feelings I have sought 
Travelling far 
to find 
blue sparkling star

A SHIPS' CAPTAIN

Swirls of light
Enveloped the sails
On a quiet starlit night
 
A captain, on the deck
A precious cargo to keep
Phosphorescence trails
Iluminating the deep
 
Lanterns on the masts and spars
Reassuring touch of timber
Flap of sails
The navigation by the stars
 
On the sea
Lit by a moon
and star bright
Carrying precious things
A ships' captain
On the deck at night

You came in to this world... 
Bloody and wet 
A screwed up face 
Our eyes met

Becoming an adult too 

You came into this world

For a while I was with you

"NIGHT"

Velvety blackness cloaks me 
jewelled sky above 
starlight 

Quiet murmurings of the night 

Light wind rustles the leaves 
breath in night forest 
enjoy the breeze 

The solitude of the night 
pale moon 
star bright 

Trees creak 
branches sighed 
every sound magnified 

Quiet murmurings of the night 

Moonlit clearings abound, 
small creatures scamper around 
For, night is alive!Full of sound 

Quiet murmurings of the night 

For the night never does sleep 
nature's too busy 
a shift it does not keep! 

Dark of night 
Star bright 

For without the night, 
pale moon,glittering stars 
would not be that wondrous sight 

Breathe in velvety blackness 
for to appreciate light 
one must cloak one'self 
in midnight

DOORS

I stood aside... 
Holding a door 
Not knowing what is was all for 
So many people passed through... 
In a blur of speed 
I couldn't count them too 

When the world moved on 
I was left holding the door 
I stood aside, 
as it flowed past, 
as it flowed fast 
The speed I saw 

The moon and stars, 
sucked through the open door 
Pulled in, 
swished through like a magicians' cape 
All I could do... 
Stand and gape 

I looked inside.... 
Peeped around the door 
I was astounded at what I saw! 
New worlds, evolving 
New galaxies, revolving 

I held an open door 
For, billions of stars 
People too 
Why? 
What was it all for? 

What would happen if I closed the door? 
I dare not! 
There seems purpose in this 
A stream of consciousness 
I must learn more 

When is door not a door? 
When you stand holding it, 
wondering what it is  for 

In a world passing by... 
In a blur of speed 
Some, stop and learn 
They can but try, 
To stop a world , 
turn by turn 

The people holding the door, 
stop and think 
Watching worlds and people sink 
They understand that , 
what passes through... 
Is not always right 
Not always true 

Doors..... 
When it was my time to learn 
I stood aside 
I held one for a while 
When it was my turn... 
I let go... 
With a brave smile... 
I let it slide... 
Walked on through, 
to the other side!

THE MAGICIANS' BOX

In a world of towers and rock.... 
The sparks flew 
The colours had begun 
Falling from above, 
in to deepest night 

From afar, 
the sparks flew 
Falling into deepest night.... 
Unfolding the light 

On the wind.... 
The strangest things were heard, 
from the towers of rock 
The unfolding cloak 
The magician spoke... 
In words... 
The colour to invoke 

Down below 
The colour rippled... 
Moved so 

The sparks grew 
The beauty fell 
Unfolding the night too 

The rock began to glow 
Breaking the night 
The sparks flew.... 
Unfolding the light 
The magic.... 
Enchanting so 

Where the sparks fell.... 
A pool did dwell 
The colours reflected the light 
Lit up the rock towers 
Lit up the night 

The pool became a stream 
Everything to touched... 
Began to gleam... 
Began to glow... 
Became alive so... 

The rock breathed and sighed, 
the stars seemed brighter 
The magician smiled softly... 
A perfect eve... 
For the magic to weave 

He cannot live in night... 
Only moon and stars, 
enjoy a darkened sky 
A magician must have light! 

The darkness to cleave... 
On a clear nights eve 
Beauty fell from the tower of rock 
Sparks flew 
The living things grew... 
From the magicians opened lock 

With a golden key... 
He took the colours to me 
Flowing down, 
from a rock tower 
I felt the magicians power 

The power of light 
over dark.... 
Held in a magicians box 
In a world of rock towers, 
where sparks grew 
Where sparks fell... 
From a key that unlocks.... 
The beauty that will be free 
The colours , for you and me

A KINGS' WONDER

A King
Held the Heartstone
In his cupped hands
In his face
The reflected glow
Of light
Of love
All seeing

The Heartstone
Knew everything
Of worlds made
Stars
Suns
The   Wise Ways laid

Such beauty
Will never surpass
A Heartstone
Its' special glow
To reveal
All in your heart
All that you know

A king
Gazed upon such beauty
How the four of them
Together
Created such a gem
How it lay
In everyones heart
A mystery
From the earliest day

For, you are a mountain
A sea of blue
The gem inside of you
Its' discovery
Its' light
All of it
Belongs to you

HEARTSTONE

For days you hunt but nothing found, 
for the heart stone to reveal its' self, 
buried deep in shadowy ground 

This shadowy land that I walk, 
sometimes alone 
for I am the gatherer of the heart stone 

The heart stone, 
find its' glow, 
for it will surely show 
its' self to the seeker, 
for if it lies in shadowy room 
it grows weaker 

The heart stone 
does not like being alone, 
alone in shadow, 
hidden so 

The heart stone 
needs to be found, 
its' light displayed 
for living in gloom 
causes its' light to fade 
in shadowy room 

The gatherer will look 
in every shadowy place, 
seek out and reach, 
the heart stone, 
find its' place 

For it is bound 
in shadowy room 
all alone, 
waiting to be found, 
by the gatherer of the stone 

The gatherer of the stone 
will never tire, 
searching the gloom 
for the jewel of hidden fire, 
that lights up the room 

For the stone is in our shadowy place 
bring it forth to show its' face, 
throw off darkened room 
and let the heart stone bloom

IF A BIRD SHALL FALL

If a bird shall fall... 
Where will it go? 
It cannot call... 
It cannot glow 

If a bird shall fall... 
in a clear sky 
I will hold it to my breast 
Breathe into its' soul 
and let it go 
Let it fly......... 
To find its' nest 

If a bird shall fall.... 
in the acres of your mind 
Hold it tight 
and you will find.... 
With a soft gentle blow 
It will fly into the light 
Your hands.... 
Traced with golden glow 

If a bird shall fall... 
Bring it to me 
For, a soft gentle blow 
and I will set it free 

If a bird shall fall... 
on to the ground 
Hush! 
Hear the sound.... 
A gentle blow... 
Bird all aglow 
Beating heart........ 
Beating wings........ 
Little bird sings........ 

If a bird shall fall... 
Pick it up in no time at all 
Blow on a heart so still... 
Until... 
The wings glow 
and with a soft kiss 
Let it go

YOUR BEATING HEART

You cannot hear a footfall, 
in a forest 
Deepening silence 
Deepening night 

I could feel its' heartbeat 
Through my capped hands 
Jewelled feathers, silent and still, 
in the forest lands 

You cannot hear footfalls, 
in the forest 
Buried in the rustle of the night 
Night calls 

I lie awake... 
Waiting for you 
You cannot hear a footfall, 
in the forest 

I felt your beating heart, 
through my body 
Jewelled eyes, bright 
In the forest of the night 

You cannot hear a footfall, 
in the forest of the night 
I hear your beating heart 
jewelled eyes, burning bright 

My body can hear... 
Your heart beating 
In the forest of the night 
The moon... 
glowing in glorious light 

In the forest , 
footfall in the night 
Wildly beating heart 
Eyes, jewelled and bright 
Coming to me

A SYMPHONY OF STARS

If the stars could speak and play... 
what would they say? 

A verse... 
A voice 
A whole universe 

If the stars could play... 
Music too... 
What a symphony it would be 
What would they say? 

The sweetest music too 
Flowing through 
Stars... 
If you only knew 
You could be 
Part of it too 
Just like me 

I wonder.... 
Do stars have feelings too? 
They travel... 
In a gentle night sky 
For you and I 

In a universe, 
filled with music 
The stars.... 
Sung for me 
Such a symphony 
So completely, 
captivated me 

The stars, 
took me too... 
Moving me with song 
If you only knew 
What the stars could do.. 
What the stars could say 

A symphony.... 
In an Milky Way 
What the stars play, 
in music, for me 

In a gentle night sky 
Watching stars fly 
The music passing through, 
the hearts of many too 

How things can be, 
in the stars you see 
An orchestral sky 
Passing by 

Such a symphony, 
captivated me 
The stars.... 
Only they really knew, 
how the music took me too 

The stars... 
In words 
In music, 
spoke to me, 
in a Milky Way. 
I hear the stars play.. 
An orchestral symphony

IN A COLOURED SKY

The exploded moment... 
Colour, scattered 
Illuminated the blue 
You were here too, 
then you were, there 

On the other side, 
the pieces flew by 
Shards of love, 
coloured the sky 

A trail of stars in its' wake, 
for me to follow 
Silvery too 
I will find you 
No matter how long, 
it will take 

Colour poured through, 
changed the sky above 
Different too 
Shards of love 
Shards of blue 

You were near... 
I felt it... 
The exploded moment, 
a single tear 

A path of sunstars, 
led me to you 
Full of colour 
You felt it too 

Distance ,is nothing at all 
I have you here 
In a blink of a thought, 
the coloured sky 
I saw you fall 

You left a trail of stars, 
for me to follow 
The thoughts, read 
Words unsaid 
The pieces flew by 
In a coloured sky 

The exploded moment 
colour , scattered 
Illuminated you 
I was here too, 
in a coloured sky

Ole Henry

      
As he came to the crossing the river was swollen out of its banks,
He wouldn’t be on the run right now if he hadn’t met ole Henry Franks.

All he wanted was a few supplies then he had planned on being on his way,
But standing in front of the door stood this bully of a man and he was wanting to play.

Well he wasn’t looking for trouble but he wasn’t going to back down from a fight,
He had ridden too far and he knew this hazing weren’t right.

He asked ole Henry nicely to let him enter the store,
But Henry just laughed and said you ain’t going in through this here door.

Well he tried to squeeze past ole Henry but he just got slung to the ground,
Henry put a boot to his side then on his head he started to pound.

The stranger made it to his feet and enough was enough,
He hit Henry hard and found out real quick ole Henry was tough.

Well they fought for near on an hour when ole Henry grabbed at his chest,
He fell to the ground and the stranger thought maybe he just had to rest.

But his thinking was wrong, ole Henry was dead,
The crowd started hollering he’s murdered ole Henry and started firing off lead.

So on his horse he rode just as fast as he could,
Just one nightmare after another, and it sure weren’t looking too good.

As the mob started closing in he spurred his horse into the raging river,
Quickly washed out of the saddle he grabbed hold of the horses tail in hopes he would deliver.

As he made it to the other side he felt a bullet crease his side,
He made it to cover and knew he could keep them pinned and they would be foolish if they
tried.

As night started falling he knew that he was going to be alright.
He just wished he hadn’t met ole Henry and gotten into that fight.

I guess there is no moral to this tale,
Except for the fact that stranger was mighty glad horses had a tail.

IN A LAND OF MIST AND MAGIC PART I

When all around, 
is dark and thick with mist 
When an eagles' feathers, glow brighter 
Your heart grows lighter 
You realise what you have missed 

A magnificent castle 
Sculptured in stone 
That lay in your heart 
Hidden from view 
Awoken 
You cannot hide 
Beauty, cannot be denied 
The love too... 
For you are never alone 

In a land of mist and magic 
Kings and Queens can play 
Prince and Princesses 
Faeries too 
Another Heartstone way 
All these things belong to you... 

Listen to your heart 
Read the book of The Wise Ways 
Especially the truth book 
Fill your heart with gossamer wings 
A pink dawn, ablaze 
Take another look 
Find these wonderful things

GHOSTSHIP (PART II)

Ghostship... 
Trailing souls in its' wake 
Strange luminescence, 
more souls to take 

The flapping of torn sails 
Masts, bleached grey 
Ghostly trails, 
lighting the way 

Fourteen score years, 
circumnavigated seas 
Ghostship... 
Looking for me... 
Sea smoke... 
Sea mist... 
Tattered sails 
Mournful wails 

In the halflight, 
Masts appear through the sea mist 
Ghostship... 
A haunting 
For the night 

Vanishing into the gloom 
Ghostship... 
Looking for a soul 
Strange luminescence 
Deathly grip 
Deathly cold 

Ghostship... 
Calling me 
Midnightsea 
Strange glow, 
from the decks below 

Blackened sides, 
burnt too 
You cannot escape 
Ghostship... 
Looking for me... 
Looking for you...

BY THE LIGHT OF THE MOON

Scattered moonbeams, 
dance in the meadow 
Faerie dreams 
Wings glow 

By the light of the moon.... 
On a meadow 
Hoot of owl, 
cry of loon 
Faeries bestow 

Soft wind on the air........ 
By the light of the moon 
The faeries will be here soon..... 
On the meadow, so fair 

Scattered moonbeams...... 
Dancing on the meadow 
The faeries know 
Faeries dreams 

By the light of the moon, 
upon this fair night 
Soft silver glow 
Faerie light....... 
Makes it so

IN TO THE WHITE

Upstroke of wing 
Rising draught of air 
Pushing me higher 
In to white clouds, 
tinged with gold 

Such a fluid state of mind 
Through the clouds, 
my wings dissolved in to the white 
There is no such thing, 
as time here 
Only me 

The effort to get here, 
is nothing at all 
For, now I am.... 
Pure energy 
A fluid state of mind and body... 
A happening... 
Dissolved wings, 
in to the white 

Bright clouds roll by, 
there is no up, 
there is no down 
Only here 
Only.....I

GULL (PART II)

Everyone has to learn... 
To be a gull 
One day... 
It will be your turn 

In a sky... 
Perfect too 
Upwards I flew.... 
To meet you 

For, in us all 
Is a Jonathan Livingston 
Bursting through 
Gulls flight... 
In me and in you 

It is the spirit that takes us all... 
Reaching new heights 
New skies                                                                                                                        
New flights 

We all dream 
Some chose to be.... 
Gulls on the sea 
This is me.... 

As I sit, watching the going down of the sun 
The gulls swoop and turn 
I savour the thought 
Can I become.... 
One of those... 
Who fly until the day is done 

One day.... 
I will come as a gull 
Fly over the sea 
Swoop and turn with glee 
What it is to be free 
One day it will be

THE WINGS OF THE HEART

We are earthly bound 
for a time... 
Only in our bodies 
Not in the  mind 
Not in the heart 

To climb and see... 
The wings of the heart 
All that lies before me 

Feathers of gold, 
on a portrait of blue 
This is me 
This can be you 

Clouds of white, 
from a portrait of blue 
Feathers of gold... 
Carry me too 

In the wings of the heart 
All that is true 
All of me 
On a portrait of blue

Yes, Little Shar, There Is a Santanic Claws!

You bet he's real,
He oft scratches at my door...
Not like Christy's cheesey racoons...
Guess she don't rate the grand tour...
I told him to go stalk Christy...
While she's listening to
Shiveree's "Goodnight Moon"..
(I'd recommend to everyone, on You Tube-
phenomenal tune and video!!! Just ask Christy...)
Some people may say no,
There really is no "Santanic Claws"-
To which I'd say "That's rubbish"!
And give them reason to then pause...
I wish it was a dream....
And I was z'in' logs...
But trust me, there's a cause...
Don't know what is it,
But beware just the same...
Maybe one night...
He'll call out your name...
Believe me,
That would be a shame...
And yes, Shar, 
I live in the forest
Of Hansel and Gretel Cold Cuts,
With witches flyin' about,
Nowadays they use vacs...
Seems brooms are now obsolete,
And they found they were fended
off from their witch attacks...
And now their's a rumor go'in round,
They got that young "Potter" clown...
Knocked him clear off his darn broom,
And he hit the ground....
True, many noises, I do hear,
But let me just say,
It's the people upstairs who
scare me the most...
Even till this late day...
See I live in a trailer...
And no "upstairs" there should be...
I just wonder what it is up there....
That is surely stalking me....
And yes, Heide...
The remote is still gone...
Betcha those witches were involved..
They think me they can con...
Speaking of can con...
Thing I'll visit CanCun,
I better head out real soon...
Surely before the 
Next full moon..
Egads, I just thought...
Halloween is upon us...
And I wish I had bought...
Some garlic clusters,
Or whatever you use..
For protection from witches
'Cause I don't wanna
fall prey...
To those Sons of a B_tches..

DAYS END

Hot thermal envelopes me ,
pushing me higher 
Shards of light 
splinter over my wings 

Dusty haze 
Earthy smell 

Temperature dropping ,as I climb higher 
Sky darkens 
Pure sweet air 
Pure sweet sunlight 

Wind buffets my body 
I turn in to the light 

Blazing golden light ,
far on the horizon 

Sun setting in blur of dust 
Sky,fresh and clear 

Me,released from earthly ties 
The gentle dying sun 
Its' outstretched hand covering me ,
with soft red and golden light 

Changing me 

Sky darkening, I must descend 
My flight is finishing ,
ending in fading light 

In to the dust ,
leaving my kingdom,my place 

Sadness at end of light 
Darkness falls, I am earth bound 
for a time ...


I wait patiently for dawn ...
dawns fresh glow ,
to warm my cold stiff wings 

Breathe its life in to me 
Pouring its liquid gold  in to me 
Giving me instinct to to climb ,
to that sun 

To fly in such bright  wondrous light 
Light holding me to its breast 

A sparkling golden jewel ,
flashing its fire in to my eyes 
as I leave this dusty earth 
and pursue rarified air and clear light 

In uninterrupted flight

FOR THE PLACE I'M AT!

Ring of bright water 
surrounds me 

Sun off water,throwing diamonds at me 
heat of sun, 
jewels blind me 

This far off situation, 
is to my taste, 
my imagination,my creation, 
nothing goes to waste 

Breath of warm wind fans me, 
hmmmm,suits me ,you see 

I have nothing here, 
but that's nothing to fear, 
for in this place, nothing is first prize 
second is,meanness,vindictiveness and lies 
That comes as no surprise, 
to the wise 

For the place I'm at , 
is more that big enough to swing a cat 
Come join me, 
for you will soon see 

That the sun throwing diamonds at me , 
makes me richer than you'll ever know, 
because I have the love of you 
and it makes me wealthy so. 
But people  find that hard to see 

They are blind 
in the land of plenty 

Warm wind fans the naked me, 
body and soul 
for all to see 
But I'm richer than thee 
for the things I care, 
belong in the place  I'm at 

Where are you? 
Struggling in the old world too? 
Come and join me, 
for you will see, 
that you will be richer 
than in the blind land of plenty 

For I'm in the place I'm at !

THE MOUNTAIN

Stone crops flash by me, 
blur of speed 

Flick of wing,turn of beak, 
the hunt is on 
for the prey I seek 

Spears of rock 
are my home 

This magnificent mountain 
strewn with scree 
capped by frost 
ringed by tree 

Rising high,it stands alone, 
granite buttresses 
keep it company 

Planes of rock make me twist and turn, 
complex flying I must learn 
to circumnavigate this world of stone 

Timeless unchanging mountain, 
my home in cool,crisp air 

Wind whispering, 
call me invitingly to the search 
for I am the Hawk of this mountain 

A mountain I know well 
for it is living breathing stone, 
my place ,my home 

Scent of pine  fills me 
as I scan for prey 
Blur of speed on rock 
endless scree 

My mountain,my home, 
this is no solitary life 
for I am not alone 

Weathered rock,clean air 
scent of green 
are my companions 
not always seen 

Spears  of stone reach for sky, 
turn of wing I fly by 
complex flying 
rock sighing 

This mountain stands alone , 
my hunting ground,my home 
strewn with scree, 
capped with frost, 
ringed by tree

THE LAST FLIGHT

The Last Flight, 
in the Land of Mist and Magic 
An Eagle to fly 
In the light 
Feathers fall 
Soft and golden 
Through the sky 

Eagles cannot die 
Feathers fall 
Soft and golden 
Eagles cannot cry 

Journeys must end 
New ones to begin 
A Heartstone Eagle 
At the end of its' life must fly 
In to the blue 
Feathers to fall 
Soft and golden 
Through the sky 

An Eagle 
Climbed high 
Circled above Heartstone 
Such a blue sky 
He was not alone 
For you were there 
In your heart 
An Eagles' lair 

Feathers fall 
Through the sky 
An Eagles last flight 
An Eagle can never die 
For he lives 
In pure and golden light

Awaiting a tale

I call the sea my home
With white winged seagulls and salt sprayed foam.
Slippery ledged rocks about
as I peek to watch the human’s shout.

Sailors have cried for lost 
Plunging into the waters with their ropes crossed 
I rush to there side 
in hopes guide. 
I live amongst the dolphins 
where I often catch a ride. 

Many a sailor has marveled about my existence 
Remembering that I’m a mermaid I keep my distance 
Tales are told from the young and the old 
about a evening of fury .
appeared a mermaid, to their eyes still blurry.
 
So I glide along this water of green 
magical ocean potions marine. 
So if you ever walk along the shore 
listen to the ocean sounds that roar. 
In it’s echoes 
I shall soar. 
Mermaid woman ,forever more.

LIKE A BIRD

I flew, like a bird
Upwards
On winds,light warm
 
Joy in my heart
Below
Fields of rippling green
Above
A sky so blue
It seemed to go on for ever
 
Crossing villages and streams
Chasing the sun
I flew, like a bird
On the strength of my dreams
 
Such beauty
Above and below
On a day, like no other
I flew, like a bird
Wings aglow
 
Clouds
Fresh and new
Let me through
As I flew like a bird
in to the blue

Whispers from the pillow

I feel you
Fading in 
I wonder where you have been? 
I know your lurking 
I wait for you with smiles
And smirking 
Upon the pillow 
I placed this heart with roses
Of a love for you it poses 
That shall never part 
The pellets fill the air 
With fragrance and with flair
I wait for you my daring 
I wait for you here 
Lavishing the moment 
When our eyes do meet 
Set forth a lonely evening 
Of us so discreet 
This night brings a story 
To some a shadow to gory
Of a love I lost so long ago 
Taken from this existence 
And woe
Never parting devotion
We two shared 
With such strong emotion 
When before me now
He stands 
And some how 
I will hold  
My love of cold hands 
His visits so odd and brief 
To many sheer disbelief 
Of a ghostly love 
He speaks 
With a whisper

THE WATER OF LOVE

Deep within a mountain 
At it's heart 
A spring flowed 
From it, love 
Glowed 

Water is the source of everything 
Love, life 
Birdsong 
Trees 
An eagles' golden wing 

A gemstone 
Filled with love, 
began in a spring 
A Heartstone 
The water of love 
Flowed 
Such light 
Glowed 

Heartstone mountain 
Welling deep 
In its' heart 
Love to seep 

Keep the love 
Keep the faith 
A mountain spring 
Love, life 
Can give you everything 

The water of love 
Touched you 
Touched me 
For in the heart 
Welling forth 
Flowing you see 
There is no other way 
What was always known 
A living Heartstone 
Within you 
Within me

NOCTURN

I let go the day
Embraced the night
Birdsong faded away
 
Shadows fell
Never across my heart
Clouds passed
The moon rising
A distant church bell
 
Stars glittered bright
Celestial heavens turned,
above the moons' soft light
 
I watched stars too
As they shone in deepest velvet blue
I embraced the night,
with all its' charm
and all its' delight
 
A gentle lightening in the sky
A hint of birdsong
Welcomed the day
To the night...
I said goodbye

DAWN, ON THE BIG BLUE

Soft whisper of sea spray
A light wind, welcomed you
The start of a perfect day
Dawn, on the big blue
 
A quiet night too
With moon and stars
Sunrise
Dawn,
On the big blue
 
A course taking you west
Following the sun
As it climbed in to the sky
A ships' magical quest
 
The dawns' soft emerging light
Mixed with with an ocean
So blue
It seemed the colour
Was the same too
 
Soft whisper of sea spray
The dawn
Welcomed you
At home
On a ship
On the big blue

I am still learning....... 
More about the inner me...... 

The sparkling blue.......... 
So far and wide too 
I can find me............... 
In this deep blue sea 

You are never alone......... 
On the sparkling blue 
Where so many have flown 
Your journey, begins too 

Gleaming white.......... 
On the sparkling blue 
Ocean wing....... 
Ocean flight...... 
My heart too.........

DEEP AIR

How silent the deep air.... 
High above... 
Swirling clouds, 
Full of love 
I saw you there 

Deep air... 
Such inner peace 
Being with you... 
Clouds of white... 
Blinding light... 
Flying too 

Deep air... 
Deep sky... 
I saw you there... 
Saw you fly... 


So many things..... 
Can come true... 
In deep sky 
In deep blue 

One day I will leave... 
My earthly domain 
Join you.... 
In deep sky 
In deep blue 
Here I will remain 

How silent the deep air.... 
Being there... 
One day... 
With you... 
Deep blue 
Deep sky 
Where the heart lay 

Clouds of white... 
Silent heights... 
Tumble and turn 
I saw you there... 
So much to learn... 
So much blue... 
So much light... 
All, in deep air

A STAR IN THE WEST

The wind fell away
Clouds broke
By evening
The suns' hazy glow
Changed the light
The ending of the day
 
The first star shone
On a horizon
Tinged with red and gold
It shone bright
With a soft silver light
The deepening blue
Replaced a red sky
The coming of the night
 
A star in the west
To follow
Until landfall
A wooden ship to find
All the things that lie
In a shadowfire heart
 
A wooden ship to carry
The heartstone gem
From the world of men
Tapestries too
The treasures that lie 
In your heart
On a ship
On a course
Plotted on a captains' chart

I STOPPED BY THE RIVER

I stopped by the river... 
Gently flowing past, 
such cool water, 
slaked my thirst 

I feel the waters pull on my hand 
secret chuckle flowing by 
Water, so clear 
you can see the river sand 

I picked up some river sand 
let it slowly trickle through my hand 
Am I grain of sand? 
Tumbling in water, 
so clear, 
throughout this verdant land 

Where is my place? 
Where am I meant to be? 
Gently flowing past 
Part of this river, 
becoming me 

Sweet waters, 
so clear 
In its' depths 
I am meant to be 

I stopped by the river... 
Or did the river stop me? 
I may never know, 
for in its' depths, 
a grain of sand 
is what you see 
what i show 

Swathes of weeping willow 
on the river... 
Cast a shadow, 
soft green glow 
in water 
so clear 

A grain of sand, 
in the clear waters 
of the river 
becomes me 
in this beautiful land

HEAVEN IS THE PLACE

Heaven is the place, 
where everyone, 
knows your face 

Gentle and kind........ 
Are the ways 
The ways you must find 

If kindness were a flower....... 
then the heart is a meadow 
Purple and blue 
Soft pinks too....... 
All for you 

If gentleness were an ocean.......... 
Then the soul is the boat 
Blue and green 
Idyllic emotion...... 
Sailing serene 

If love were a colour......... 
Then the heart is pure gold 
Shining through 
Unspoiled......... 
For you to hold 

If giving was a stream.... 
Then the heart is a waterfall 
Bubbling flow....... 
For those who know 
For those who hear it's call 

Heaven is the place....... 
Where everyone 
knows your face 
Humility and grace 
Garlanded like lace 

If forgiving was a grain of sand......... 
Then the heart is a mountain 
A rock to which........... 
all will flock 

If patience wasa slender reed............... 
Then the heart is a mighty tree 
These qualities you need 
You see....... 
In heaven............... 
The place to be

MY TREE

A beautiful tree
Grew
It faced the sun
Every day
New leaves revealed
Such magic
Has begun

I watched it grow
Over the years
I talked with it too
Just like a son
That I had come to know

Strong and true
It grew
And grew
Such beautiful branches and leaves
Every season
A new colour
I loved it too

A tree
That I knew
Had a heart
Of that I am sure
For that tree
Loved me

It whispered to me
In a language
Only I could know
For the tree
Knew me so

When I was a boy
The tree was young too
We grew together
Watching storms
Rain passing
The seasons too

I lived my life
With my tree
I became old
The tree
Grew and grew

Before I was too old
I took my last walk
Down to my tree
To say a few words
To a member of my family

The last good bye 
To my tree
I accepted with a sigh
My own frailty 

Tears can shed upon
The bark
Of my tree
I will not last the winter
Or see another spring sun

In that coming winter
The only thing I could see
Was from a castle window
All I asked for
Was to be buried
Underneath
My tree

WHAT AM I?

What am I?
On a sea of blue
Mixtures of stardust
Earthen rust
and honey dew
 
Clouds rising in a dark sky
Fly , if you must
One time before you die
Turning into stardust
Earthen rust
and honeydew
 
I can live forever...
On wings above
On stardust
On your love

MY OWN KEY

With the grace and power
Of a Heartstone eagle 
You looked for
And found
The Seventh Door

The key.
To the Kingdom of Magic
Released in you
A Queen or a King
An Eagle
This is what I always wanted
For you
For me
It means everything

Your treasure inside
Was always there
You have love and magic
Of a Heartstone gem
Like an Eagle flying through the air
You carry with you
All the Magic of a Castle

All these beautiful things
That were discovered in you
Sighing Streams
Whispering Trees
Winding Stairs
You took me too
In your dreams

What a delight!
To share these stories
With you
I could not think
Of anyone else
That understood
Love and magic
The power of you
Released in me
The means to find
My own key

I think of you
Your journey too
That you realized earlier on
That you held everything
How your star shone
You now belong
In a world that I made
Especially for you...

I never thought I would say
That this would happen
That, doors can open
To a Magic Kingdom
That you dared to
Come with me today
Such love 
Found in you
That such journeys
Leave you spellbound
In Seven Ways

PRELUDE

Streams of light,
fell on me
I stayed awhile
A bubbling brook
Grassy knoll
Shady tree

To escape
Find something new
How it matters to you
For in the heart
It cannot lie,
for it is true

To a better time
long ago...
When deeds of valour
Lost beliefs,
meant something so

Magical times,
to fill the air
Fill my heart
What I want to share

For this is my heart
Changing seasons
Faeries too
I hope that it means something to you

In our hearts
We have castles
Nature
Love too

We cannot lose sight,
of pure loving ways
Of wind
Kings and queens
Faeries flight

This is my heartstone

BLUE IS THE COLOUR

BLUE IS THE COLOUR 

Blue is the colour

of your eyes

Blue is the colour 
your serenity 
of your sky 
as you walk by 

Blue is the colour 
of your ocean 
your depth 
your emotion 

Blue is the colour 
I want from you 
your gentleness 
your love too 

Blue is the colour 
that shines from your heart 
fresh, flowing 
your blue 
showing

I WILL SEE YOU SOON

I sailed many miles 
The sun, high 
In a pure azure sky 

Moons and suns, 
passed by 
Still I sailed, 
pushing through a starlit sky 

This boat, 
I feel its' force within me 
It's sails, it's lungs 
It's body, the sea 

Worlds passed 
slowly beneath me 
All I could see, 
before the mast 

This big blue 
Me 
Covering too 

Stars , lit my way 
The moon glowed 
Soft wind , blowed 
Led me astray 

Moons and suns, 
stars and skies 
Ocean blues 
Nothing I could refuse 

Sails of purest white, 
glowed softly during the night 
Reassuring creak, 
of this boat of teak 

This boat has no direction 
I am not its' guide 
This boat is perfection 
I am here only for the ride 

The stars rotated 
above my head 
This boat located, 
my thoughts read 

It is not the destination, 
it is the getting there 
Journeys travelled 
Suns and moons 
Days and nights 
The sea 
The air 
Unravelled 
I will see you soon 
For, 
You are just over there

TOMORROWS' MOON

Sweeping clouds 
Billowing white, 
Hiding tomorrows' Moon, 
in golden light 

For, where there is gold light, 
there can be silver too 
Precious colours, 
that can be seen through the night 

Dusk fell, swiftly 
The emerging night, 
changed all... 
In to silver light 

Tomorrows' Moon, 
shone steady and bright 
Silver lantern light, 
lit up the night 

Yesterdays' Moon faded away, 
when night became another day 
The day will end soon... 
and we will have tomorrow's Moon

ON AN OCEAN

I soar endlessly 
on an ocean 
so blue

I know... 

Such space 
in a world 
of such blue 
what I flew 
I know... 

Silvered wings 
on an ocean 
so blue 
it is everything 
I know... 

So many miles too 
in a dream 
on an ocean 
so blue 
I know... 

What is to become of me? 
the wings ache 
I soar endlessly 
carefree 
I know... 

On an ocean 
the spirit flies free 
endlessly 
on the blue 
I know

WAY BACK THEN

Way back then 
I played in a garden 
filled with flowers 
I cannot remember when 

My life as a child, 
way back then 
Sunny skies 
Before I joined the world of men 

The only authority, 
my parents 
Way back then 
My family 

Such a tiny world, 
passes by, 
in a blink of an eye 
Way back then 

Governed with love 
Way back then 
The only authority now, 
is the world of men 
Lost, but how? 

Through a childs' eyes 
I played.. 
Way back then 
The flowers I made, 
under sunny skies 

Lost am I.. 
I cannot return 
to a sunny sky... 
So much to learn 

Such a tiny world.. 
Passed by 
A sunny sky, 
unfurled 
Lost am I.. 
In a childs' eyes 


way back then

SLIPSTREAM

Deep meaning 
I cannot say 
Deep streaming 
Showing me.. 
My way 

The four winds 
I saw in my dream 
Showing me.. 
My way 
Slipstream 

An outstretched hand 
Passing by 
Slipstream 
Invisible in a blue sky 

Tumbling over and over 
Passing by, 
caught me 
Threw me up high 

Where do you go? 
I cannot say 
Slipstream 
Showing me.. 
My way 

A grain of sand, 
passing by 
An outstretched hand 
Threw me up high 

I cannot always dream 
I cannot say 
Show me... 
My way

WHEN YOU STOPPED BEING YOU

WHEN YOU STOPPED BEING YOU 

When you stopped, 
being you 
My gentle world, 
fell through 

Lost on a sea, 
of my own making 
What you meant to me 

When you stopped, 
being you 
Day and night, 
meant nothing 
My plight 

Drifting, 
without a sail 
It cannot be, 
lost on a lonely sea 

When you stopped, 
being you 
My gentle world, 
fell through 

I looked for you today, 
you have gone 
Dying 
Lost 
You cannot stay 

When you stopped, 
being you 
My gentle world, 
lost too 

It is only me, 
alone 
Day and night 
On a desolate sea 

When you stopped, 
being you 
My gentle world, 
fell through 

Time cannot 
always heal 
the days you feel 
When you stopped, 
being you

WHAT IT MEANS.....

The sun dipped low.... 
On a horizon tinged with gold and red 
The sea calm 
Such things transient so 

When you become aware... 
What counts.... 
Is the things you share 

It takes time.... 
To understand... 
To appreciate a single day.. 
A sunset... 
Golden sand 
A chosen moment 
Heaven sent 

A flock of birds flew overhead, 
on a horizon tinged with gold and red 
One day... 
You will understand 
What is means..... 
To me.... 
What needs to be said 

All these things you can hold, 
in your heart 
On a stormy day 
On a horizon tinged with red and gold 
The reflected beauty within, 
is constant so 
The sea, calm 
Such things ... 
Transient though 

The sun dipped low 
Hid behind a darkened sea 
These things I hold... 
Inside of me 
With you.... 
What it means..... 
To me.. 
I hold deep so

THE EARTHEN KING

When the world began
The Earthen King
Stood by
For the Fire King
To bring to the surface
All the rock
For, it had the making
Of continents

An artist created
All these living things
The beautiful trees
Beneath a golden sun
For, when the earth cooled
The Kings of Water and Air
Let it live and breathe

The colours too
Of flowers 
Of orchids
Of trees
Of skies of blue

Such beauty
To make you weep
In joy
For, so many things made
In imagination
Completely

To fill a world
With trees
With magic
With love
That only a king
Can know
That it meant....
everything

THREE TIMES A WISH....

To stop.... 
Stand and stare 
under the full Moon glare 
Once 
Twice 
Three times a wish.... 
So much anguish... 

Soft white clouds pass by, 
under a pale Moon.... 
In a night sky 
Which one is I? 

How tranquil... 
The Moon 
Soft white clouds 
Passing by 
Me.... 
Standing still 

Clouds ,racing by.... 
Yet, the Moon.... 
Standing still 
The clouds ,broke free 
A new beginning soon 
perhaps, we'll see

GHOSTSHIP

Through sea smoke 
Sails, ripped and torn 
Sails, stained and worn 
Ghostship, 
awoke 

Creak and groan, 
of well worn timbers 
Whispered moan 
Shivers 

Ghostship 
rigging ,trailing in the sea 
Masts, bleached grey 
Ghostship, 
appearing on this day 

Ghostship, 
in its' wake 
Amidst its' tangled rigging, 
dragging the souls it must keep 
before going down deep 

Lonely souls, 
neither alive  or dead 
The lives, the ship stole 
condemned in waters, it sped 

In the halflight 
Through fog and mist 
Ghostship, 
creaking with a star baord list 

In the halflight 
Masts and spars, 
grey and worn 
Tattered sails, 
all forlorn 
Ghostship, 
below the stars 
disappearing in to the night 

As the sun loses it's glow, 
the ship takes on a strange luminescence 
Midnight sea 
Ghostship, 
the night has come to know 

Ghostship, 
forever travelling in half light 
Sails ,ripped and torn 
Sails,stained and worn 
Where she goes.... 
nobody knows....

Swirls of gold 
Swirls of blue 
A portrait... 
The emotional you 

From its' depths, 
layers of colour 
The painter.. 
Looking for you 

Swirls of sunset 
Swirls of you 
Revealing everything, 
I know too 

The spark in the eyes 
The painter, never lies 
I saw you there 
The colour never dies 

A soul, on canvas 
captured for eternity 
Swirls of emotion, 
filling you and me 

Soft brush strokes too 
guided with love 
Swirls of gold 
Swirls of blue 

I saw her too, 
in a swirl of blue 
Captured my heart 
Felt in you 

The naked face 
The naked you 
The painter 
Captured everything 
Everything I want too 

Textures of light 
Swirls of colour 
The softness of shadowy light 
Such vibrancy, 
calling me 

Shades of you 
Shades of me 
Lost on a canvas of eternity 
in swirls of gold and blue

JUPITER, RISING

to touch the sun 
Gold and red 
Down it dipped, 
night came 
Instead 

The night sky 
brought forth its' stars 
Dlanets too 
darkening rush,

I lifted high 
Followed the wind 
Followed the moon,

This blue Earth... 
At night... 
Leaving a trail of stars 
The planets emerging light 

Martian red 
Venus, jewel bright 
What I came to see.. 
Jupiter.. 
Rising,

Mighty Jupiter 
Chemical storms , seething 
Swirling below 
How it burned,

The Jovian light returned 

The suns' radiance 
felt upon my face 
in deepest coldest space 
Yet I sense...

MYSTERIES OF THE HEART

Shadows, flew 
across my heart 
Dark too 

Such dark beauty 
Such mystery 
Shadows too, 
in the heart 

Amidst the shadows 
A light grew 
A spark... 
A rose... 
That was me 

Spilling out 
Petals falling 
Colour calling, 
I heard it shout 

To travel 
so far... 
Mysteries of the heart 
Such dark beauty, 
becoming light 

The smokiness within 
The battle of light 
The battle of dark 
A curious whim 
A curious spark 

Light and shadows, 
flew across my heart 
Such beautiful things 
Cannot rest in the 
mysteries of the heart

TRUTH AND LIGHT

I looked from the edge of light 
Stared across and saw truth 
I stepped forward, 
and fell in to the night 

Down I fell, 
in no time at all 
Felt gods' hand 
Lift me, 
for in his love I did dwell 

In to the light, 
carried up high 
I saw truth, 
pure and bright 

I can fall 
any time at all 
from the edge of light 
I have faith, 
that will lift me from the night 

I see the truth, 
just over there 
Waiting for me 
across the night air 

The beauty in truth and light 
lay before me 
I could reach out and hold

CASTLE

The gnarled rock..... 
On which the castle stands 
Haunting beauty..... 
Above the green lands 

Ruined battlements, 
speak of previous engagements 
Hard dark stone 
The castle.... 
Stands alone 

Battered walls have withstood.... 
Natures' harshest winter 
Wars,weapons of steel........ 
Men heal...... 
Wood splinter 
If it could.... 
Castle.... 
Would 

Flickering glow..... 
Upon the gnarled rock, 
from long ago 
Castle.... 
It knows 

Wooden beams creak 
Moonlight to seek 
The gnarled rock..... 
The castle keep.... 
Waiting for the key...... 
To turn in rusty lock 

The wind howls 
On the gnarled rock 
On which the castle stands 
Hoot of owls 
Castle..... 
Brooding over green lands 

Flickering glow..... 
On the battlements 
Silent stone 
Castle..... 
Dark and alone 
Memories from long ago 

Past glories 
Flickering glow 
Castle stories........ 
From long ago 

The gnarled rock 
guards the castle 
Flickering glow, 
in a deadened sky...... 
From long ago

A World To Ponder

As I lay, the world around me alive yet hushed, time rests still to let the mind 
catch up with it. A night sky with one sea of clouds and the sun reflecting 
monsters created by accident lays still. While these beautiful monsters, in their 
size, kill the grass they stand on, their beauty takes away breath from all living 
things. Soon the sun will cease to shine on the melancholy above us. The waters 
will recede back into the horizon as the sun wakes up to shine on flowers 
abroad ‘till it is bored of sitting in these flowers and goes off to explore all the 
other wondrous designs once shown in Eden upon soft pedals of gentle, yet 
plagued life.
	Songs of sorrow come from the ones left in the presence of one 
mightier than the sun until the beautiful monster comes again with his deadly 
stomp.
Watching, wandering, and wondering, the sun asks, “How is this death so 
glorified. Do none wish to grow, or do they confuse north and south?”

The fish calm, the waves roar to the horizon in understanding. As this reality 
becomes my fantasy-I live in this world that men before me have created.

Untill you find them 

As you see... 
As you feel... 
In your darkest hour... 
You find something 
To take you, 
Higher 
A shadowfire 

Illuminating your darkest hour 
For, there is always light 
For, in a mountain ,so deep 
There lies a Shadowfire 

You are never alone... 
No matter how dark it can be 
A Heartstone, 
inside too 
A shadowfire 
Lies inside of you 

Deep in a mountain... 
In the Land of Eagles 
A Shadowfire 
That can lie in your heart 

A flame of purest blue 
Captured the inner you 
A Shadowfire 
That you always knew

BLUE RIVER

This cool river of blue 
gently flowing....... 
I flow with it too, 
my heart slowing 

Slowly turning in the tide, 
indigo sky above 
I cannot hide 
I cannot hide this love 

This cool river flowing,

All knowing 

My arms stretched wide,

Heart gently flowing

Blue gently showing

The gentle tide, 
which I cannot hide 
My heart flowing too

Slowly turning

arms out wide, 
love deep inside,

Love pouring,

Gentle flowing,

Arms stretched out wide, 
gentle heart giver, 
upon the blue river 

Blue river wide,

Blue river...............

PARADISE

Cool water lapping at the edge of white sand, 
You, 
holding my hand 

Warmth of sun, 
warmth of hand, 
Warmth of love, 
Warmth of sand 

No one for miles, 
wearing nothing, 
but our smiles 

Footprints in sand, 
none but our own, 
walking along the shore, 
we know what it is all for 

Hand in hand, 
walking on sun bleached sand, 
no words we can say, 
on the beach of eternal play 

For, no words are needed, 
our thoughts,words are as one. 
You and I under golden sun, 
hand in hand 
on sun bleached sand 

Shade of palm, 
you by my side, 
serene and calm, 
the beach stretched far and wide 

Wearing nothing but our smiles, 
we can see for miles, 
paradise perfect, 
crystal clear sea, 
blue and green reflect, 
the love you have for me 

Cool water lapping at edge of white sand 
You, 
holding my hand

WHERE THE SNOW LAY

When Autumn became a Winters' day 
The snow flake falling 
That Winter Queen lay........... 
She heard the Heartstone calling 

Her sleigh, gold and light 
The reindeer, sure footed too 
They carried her on the frosty night 
The Whispering Trees changing hue 

The fresh fallen snow, 
covered the green so 
The chuckle of Winter Elves 
their feet, leaving tracks below 

Tiny glowing lights 
The Whispering Trees, 
guided the Queen 
Where the snow lay............ 
To the Castle gate, 
upon her sleigh 

The quiet of Winter......... 
The fireside glow 
The Castle ............. 
Covered in snow 
The only sound.......... 
A hoot of owl......... 
To be found 

The berries,so red............. 
On the holly bushes, 
by the Great Hall 
Dusted with snow........... 
Just like in winters 
from long ago 

The cold night........ 
Beginning to shorten 
The snow disappearing......... 
Early light 

Time to go 
The Winter Queen saw.......... 
How the frost began to thaw......... 
The ending of snow 

The last visit to the Great Hall......... 
Marvelling at the Tapestries glowing...... 
What they can say...... 
The Heartstone ,on the wall........ 
The hitched up sleigh 

For Spring is coming soon....... 
The dipping down........ 
Of a wintry moon 
The last frost afternoon 
Winters' crown

WAKING UP AT DAWN

Waking up at dawn
with incandescent lights
on my subdued frawn...
receding to warm sheets;
recognizing the petrel's flight
with the hawks pursuing it in delight,
while spiders hang on dusty webs
and the incessant thrush sings...

Waking up at dawn
with sunken eyes,
not wanting to meet sunlight;
a little morose,but gladsome...
I glance at the maples,
submerged in intense light,
as the wagtails tap
on my  moist window
to greet me with a cheerful chirp...

Waking up at dawn
with departing lovely dreams,
I grope uncertainly amid visions;
no full moon rises above the bright horizon,
and with no night passion to inflame me:
I reckon another inevitable aspect of reality...

LOVELIGHT

The colour, 
of a lovers' kiss 
Fills you too 
The heart cannot miss, 
loves' colour hue 

Such ethereal light, 
falling on your shoulders 
Took my heart 
Took my sight 

The scent of you, 
warmth too 
Such lovelight, 
inwards burning through 

Such light, 
fell upon me 
For, together 
It is meant to be 

Such intensity, 
for you 
Lovelight, 
glowing, 
deep inside of me

THE FAERIES OF HEARTSTONE

Small darting lights,
through the whispering trees
Through Heartstone
Faerie flights

A castle cannot be...
Without a faerie
Magic in the air
What it all means,
to you and me

Lilting song
from a Heartstone faerie
Will touch you deep
This where your heart does belong

Love filled the air
Music too
Soft faerie light
The colour, so rare

Where it all began
Lost in time
The faeries found
A land sublime
The kings wrought
A castle
The faeries blessed the ground

Through out the years
Faeries were here,
through laughter and tears
Weddings
The coming of the darkness
Faeries,   were always there                                                                  
                                    
Small darting lights
Through the whispering trees
Through me
Filled me with colour
If you could only see...
The heartstone
what can be

IT CAME TO ME

A gentle wind blew off the sea... 
It came to me.... 
Took me up high... 
Passed sweeping clouds 
What I can be... 

It took a small moment.... 
To realize.... 
The things I can do 
With a gentle  wind... 
From the sea.... 
Blue skies... 
Sun bright... 
Clouds of white... 
Levitating too... 

With a grey feather.... 
It came to me.... 
I can change what I want to be.... 
I can pass sweeping clouds of white 
Find out who I am... 
Not what I heard... 
The wind can lull... 
The wind can blow... 
Perhaps I am a gull... 
Only I ,will ever know...

AN EAGLES' SORROW

Heartstone Eagles
Recounted the tales
Of the battles with the Wraiths
and their piercing screeching wails

When Eagles fell...
In to the Wraiths' hell
Blackened and burned
Such brave sacrifices , learned

The wind blew
Bitter and cold
Eagles took to the air
To find the evil
The coming darkness too

Down below
Wraiths
With ripped and tattered cloaks
Poisoning the earth
With rancorous soaks

Eagles , up high
Swooped down
Feathers of gold
Gleaming in the sun
The battle ahead, begun
To take the Heartstone crowns

With talons drawn
They ripped through
So many Wraiths
Never enough Eagles
To conquer the evil
Of tattered cloaks,
burned and torn

Eagles, fell
Burned
Flashes of fire
Eagles , gone forever
In to the Wraiths' hell

It is in an Eagles' sorrow
That so many were lost
That the Heartstone Gem
The light to follow
Banished the bitter frost

In the midst of such pain
All those years ago
A new eyrie was built
Close to the Great Hall
To remember
Those fallen Eagles
Whose lives , spilt
Who will live again
In the hearts of all

IN A LAND OF MIST AND MAGIC PART II

When all around is dark and thick with mist 
When an eagles' feather glow brighter 
Your heart grows lighter 
For you realize what you have missed 

When a castle opens its' heart to you 
Amidst the whispering trees 
What lies in your self 
What you want to be 
Let your self go 
Be true 

The castle , filled with love and colour 
The flowers began to bloom 
Holly glowed 
Faeries danced 
Sweet song filled every room 

A new season took hold during the night 
For a summer queen, 
rich green leaves grew 
The air glowed with sunbright

ON AN EAGLES' WINGS

On an eagles' wings 
I climbed high 
Saw many things 
Saw me 
Oh my! 

A golden feather,

Take it

I saw many things, 
on an eagles ' wings

An eagle feather 
I came to know 

On an eagles' wings 
Golden light 
Sky of blue 
My heart 
So true 
I saw many things 

So many things too

I knew 
Knew it to be true 

My heart... 
My life... 
On an eagles' wings 
I climbed high 
for such things... 
Never die

HEARTSTONE

For days you hunt but nothing found, 
for the heart stone to reveal its' self, 
buried deep in shadowy ground 

This shadowy land that I walk, 
sometimes alone 
for I am the gatherer of the heart stone 

The heart stone, 
find its' glow, 
for it will surely show 
its' self to the seeker, 
for if it lies in shadowy room 
it grows weaker 

The heart stone 
does not like being alone, 
alone in shadow, 
hidden so 

The heart stone 
needs to be found, 
its' light displayed 
for living in gloom 
causes its' light to fade 
in shadowy room 

The gatherer will look 
in every shadowy place, 
seek out and reach, 
the heart stone, 
find its' place 

For it is bound 
in shadowy room 
all alone, 
waiting to be found, 
by the gatherer of the stone 

The gatherer of the stone 
will never tire, 
searching the gloom 
for the jewel of hidden fire, 
that lights up the room 

For the stone is in our shadowy place 
bring it forth to show its' face, 
throw off darkened room 
and let the heart stone bloom

DISCOVERY

Eagles soared high 
to the Princes' Four Winds 
Golden eyes, keen 
Above in the blue 

A passing cloud, 
snowy white 
On a sea of blue 
Could this be the one 
Could this be what they were looking for? 

Swooping down 
Through cloud, so white 
Made golden wings, bright 
brighter than a Kings' Crown 

Bursting through 
in to air, so sweet 
Filled with scent 
An island! , Found too! 

This one could only be seen 
by the chosen few.. 
Eagles, have magic too 

Deep forests, 
rising through valleys 
The eagles, 
Searching.. 
Mountain high 
Bays too 
For, ships must dock 
On an island, 
Hidden in the ocean blue 

Onwards , they sped 
Faeries, sense things 
For, they know 
Good news will always travel ahead 

A sense of excitement, 
coursed through.. 
Waiting for eagles 
Wanting their news 
Seeing their views 

One by one, 
they dropped down 
Wings , burnished by golden sun 
Their mission, done 

The Kings, gathered 
Queens and Princesses 
Princes too 
For ,on this day.. 
Land! 
For me! 
For you! 

The Eagles had not failed 
Sweet land 
A place to build 
Wooden ships willed 
Wooden ships sailed 

A journey across the sea 
A discovery... 
A Heartstone, in a place 
safe, 
for you and for me

IN MY DEEP

My heart bleeds so, 
for they do not know 

The goings on in my deep, 
for it's starting to seep, 
seeping through, 
slowly,surely, 
seeping through 
My deep 

The deep is where I am, 
I am in the deep. 
I open the tide, 
for seeping through, 
I cannot predict when, 
this burst of emotional pen 

This place is the deep, 
the further I travel, 
the more I find, 
not afraid to leap 

In my deep 

To explore, 
and find what it is all for 

In my deep 

I do not descend in to the deep, 
I walk and write it's passages. 
I see foot prints, 
now and then, 
but now,not since 

For they are not mine. 
Do they follow me? 
Do they stalk? 
I do not know, 
for I walk, 
in my deep 

You must find your way back, 
from the deep 
It's many galleries,twists and turns, 
nooks and crannies 

To visit a while,can make you smile, 
for infinate depths of sleep, 
of which emotions seep, 
with burst of pen quill. 
To guide your will 

Seeping through,my deep, 
my awareness. 
I have awoken from my sleep, 
in all fairness, 
I like what I have found, 
for I now,begin to sound, 
the depths of my deep

FAR AWAY

Far away 
In the blackness of the night 
A burning light 
Across the bay 

The light danced upon the water 
Piercing the night 
Piercing glare 
Shimmered in the cold air 

Far away 
The light found me 
Amidst the night 
Bound me tight, 
until the day 

A burning light 
I felt its' warmth on me 
Amidst the night 
On the sea 

Far away 
It could have been me 
A burning light 
On the sea 

Far away 
On the burning sea 
A burning light 
That is me

Left a shadow in the sand 

A solitary figure on the shore... 
Holding a moon 
From with....

Always golden 
Always another day

WHEN THE WORLD CAME TOGETHER

When the world came together
Earth,Fire,Air and Water
Joined
They became Kings
Rocks formed
Glowings
 
In a maelstrom,
of elements
Four Kings
Began the magic
 
Fire pushed the rock to the surface
Water cooled it
The Earth formed it
The air made it all breathe
 
The deafening roar of sound
As the Kings created
Beautiful things
The crackle of flame
Hiss of steam
The grinding of rock
The force of wind
 
Upon a sea of molten rock
The crackle of hiss
Of continents
The elements
The magic
In a world
Began
That kings
Created beautiful,
and wonderful things
 
The beginning
For, amongst the molten rock
Gems were made
One of which
To be discovered
Deep in a mountain
When the earth cooled
Such wondrous colours
Were displayed
 
The kings,
Shaped and carved
The kingdom
The Fire King could cleanse
The Earth King, heal
The Water King ,to give life
The King of Air , made all things breathe

In the Heart of Sol


Oh, the mists on the tops of hills sleep
as if cast into skies as gray spells
and the color of magic now seeps
from the breast of the tall earthen swells.

Here the bright eye of Sol shall appear
as he dawns from the Eastern-most sky
with his chariot drawing so near
he makes blue bells forget they are shy.

Oh, his touch tickles reddest rose hips 
whilst he winks at the lily so fair
and a kiss on the sweet peas soft lips
all begotten inside his gold stare.

Oh, he chases the chill from the morn
though he's aching beyond all compare.
Oh, his sad heart awaits so forlorn
as he dances in joy on my hair.

Oh, he saves all his best 'till the last
when the twilight unveils the pale moon
and he sighs as he sees her float past
and her beauty and grace make him swoon.

Oh, he waits and he waits to see when
the conditions are all about right
and together they will be again
when she kisses away the daylight.

Oh, he waits for a chance to embrace;
the affair that has been there between
Oh, the mists try to shield his rapt face
and conceal moments he's rarely seen.

Oh, she shines in his heart when it's dim
and she lights possibilities way
and he knows she will dance there with him
if he only awaits that grand day.

JUPITER, RISING

I reached out, 
to touch the sun 
Gold and red 
Down it dipped, 
night came 
Instead 

The night sky 
brought forth its' stars 
Planets too 
darkening rush, 
the day slipped by 

I lifted high 
Followed the wind 
Followed the moon, 
in to the starlit sky 

This blue Earth... 
At night... 
Leaving a trail of stars 
The planets emerging light 

Martian red 
Venus, jewel bright 
What I came to see.. 
Jupiter.. 
Rising, 
in all its' majesty 

Mighty Jupiter 
Chemical storms , seething 
Swirling below 
How it burned,

The Jovian light returned 

The suns' radiance 
felt upon my face 
in deepest coldest space 
Yet I sense...

Rides the Gunfighter I

Into the sunset, rides the gunfighter.
A man, who, for justice, will fight to the end.
Today’s battle, it had, left him undaunted,
but tonight’s battle is with an old friend.

His battle, this night, is with old Roger Dunne,
someone he had befriended, in his own past.
Appears that old Dunne had stolen some money
from a bank at Monterey  Pass.

The bank, it held funds for all the storeowners
and savings for the homeowners of the small town.
So, he accepted the offer the sheriff had made him
and for old Dunne, he was looking to gun down.

It was at Roy’s Saloon, that the doors then swung open,
when all of a sudden Roger Dunne had walked in.
There, at the bar, stood the gunfighter, waiting
to draw his gun, for the fight to begin.

Old Dunne, he had heard of the bounty that’s on him
and quickly he noticed the gunfighter, the friend.
But, he also knew that for money, no friendship
could keep destiny from reaching its end.

He called out his friend to come to the street
where he thought, for his loot, he could stand a chance.
But the gunfighter was too fast, as he drew upon him
and he heard in the distance, the call, the last dance.

So, the gunfighter now, his directive complete
set forth to ride from this lonely town,
until that day that comes, when another steps up
to put the gunfighter six feet under ground.

THE JOURNEY OF A SHIP

Swirls of light
Enveloped the sails
On a quiet starlit night
 
Faerie light flickered brightly
Upon a ship filled with treasure and magic
The sweet kiss of the sea
 
A ship from the Whispering Trees
Made with skill
Made with love
Sailed forward in the night breeze
 
Smooth polished wood laid
Carved by the Earthen King
Sails made by the Queens
A beautiful thing was made
 
A ship borne from a tree
A ship that became alive
The minute it touched the sea
 
It is in the purpose of things
What magic has made
To come alive
From a Whispering Tree glade
A ship upon the sea of the night
Sails filled with Faerie light
 
You imagined the world
A ship upon the sea
Sails unfurled
A ship carrying you
Carrying me

THE COLOURS OF MY HEART

The colours of a sunset
Ran through my heart
Orange,gold and red
 
Shades of indigo
Became a midnight blue
The glorious night
The moon glow
 
Moonbeams
Shaped white clouds,

The colours of the night
Ran through my heart
Silver and midnight blue
 
A blush in the east
As stars fade
Different colours returned
The shades of the heart
These things I learned

Filled with light 
The sea,

The windlight 
drifted across 
I felt it shine

A strange glow 

Warm, it was, 
comforting too 
Far down the beach 
Carrying me 

Across the sea, 
the windlight 
blew out the night 
Such beauty for me 

Believe in such things 
The  windlight 
to take away your night 
To set free, 
all that is warm and light 

All those who gathered on the shore 
Saw the day 
Filled with light 
The sea, 
filled with joy, 
filled with light 
Filling you and me

Make A Wish

When daytime turns to night
When the moon shines bright
When your tucked in tight 
When everything’s all right 
Sleep softly to that place
Where secret thoughts roam free
And there you come face to face 
With who you want to be 
Swim across the ocean blue 
Fly a rocket to the moon
You can change your life 
Or you can change the world 
Take the chance 
Don’t be afraid
Life is yours to live 
Take a chance 
And the best is yet to come 
Find the strength inside of you 
And watch your dreams come true 
You don’t need a shooting star
The magic right there in your heart
Close your eyes, close them tight 
Believe, believe with all your might
And make a wish tonight
