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

Never Told You

Tired of talking 
‘bout weather
Other trivial things

Tired of talking 
‘bout food
The price of tangerines

You may outlive
This aging man
Before I go
Please understand

Never told you how 
I love you 
When I held you
In the dark

Never told you how
I love you
I was never
Very smart

I never told you how
I love you
When I kissed your 
Baby face

Never told you how
I love you 
And I pray it’s 
Not too late

I would  tell you, 
“That’s what men do…manly men don’t say,  ‘I love you’”
That was my alibi
But what men do should be corrected
What men do can’t be accepted 
If it makes your woman cry

Tired of talking 
‘bout scandals
Rumors of the day

Tired of talking 
‘bout old mistakes
Who deserves the blame?

The Winter of our lives
Is drawing near
Let’s change it to Spring
From year to year

Now I’m telling you 
I love you
Though the words are coming late

I’m telling you
I love you
And it feels so good to say

I’ll love you in the morning         
Love you through the night
I will love you through the tears
And all the tragedies of life

I’ll stay with you forever
Love you every day
Love you,  love you, love you
It feels so good to say

Love you, love you, love you, baby

Feels so good to say…..

Love

Poetry Soup

Since joining just yesterday,
I have not had much to say,
As I sit here idle,
Waiting for a title,
I watch as you pass my way,

I am honored to be here,
While a select few may jeer,
Mostly I can see hope,
From the end of my rope,
Bringing about a joyous tear,

For all poets who have been called,
Disenchanted or enthralled,
Our mission always true,
We inform and move you,
To make you act or make you halt,

To rise above and expound the truth,
Or to lose ourselves in a groove,
Whether blatent or far out,
We live to learn - live to shout,
About love, laughter or the blues,

For although I may be new,
To this small poetic group,
I see what you've built,
With talent and skill,
Namely this Poetry Soup,

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

She Cried

       She cried, She died inside over and over again, She was trapped in herself 
and she had no way of escaping. Taking drugs to dull the mud that's been in her 
eyes 
for years. She's so far away from reality that it's like she is constantly 
sleeping. 
She has to remind herself what's fictional and what's fact because the 
hallucinations wouldn’t  let her breath, they’d lie to her every chance she gets. 
Turning her mom into a monster not butterflies suddenly this high becomes a 
nightmare. One she had been fighting for so long, 16 and still traveling the same 
rode as so many younger than her. She didn't listen to all the voices that tried to 
tell her what she was missing because truly reality is the thing that makes life 
worth living. To her reality was the guy who had raped her constantly when she was 
young, Why choose reality when you could live in a dream world where everything had 
excuses. Not only could she not recognize the girl who cried constantly in the 
mirror but she'd done so many things to herself that even her eyes were a different 
color. 
It hurt so bad not to remember so she continued to fade until soon it seemed 
better. 
In an idiotical world where there were always smiles, It wasn't until she got help 
that she realized the real world was never always pleasant. It was filled with hate 
and lies and pain but that's something real and something she needed to face. 
Something she needed to open her eyes to, life would never be cake and she couldn't 
have her victory without tasting poison at least once. So when the tears dried and 
the wounds healed she signed up for a special thing a thing called GED and she got 
it.

The Wedding.


                                        The Wedding.

The Pastor stood there waiting,all clothed in his atire
The Organist played the Wedding tune,so sweet,to be admired.
The Groomsman and his Best man,were waiting patiently
As the congregation,sat in seats,adorned so beautifully.
Then came the children,in the lead,with rings and petals baring
They were dressed so pretty ,and so cute,their beauty was unsparing.
Next the Bridesmaids,and the Matron of Honour,as pretty as can be
Then,last but least,as was expected,my Daddy escorting me.
The music stopped,all took their places,as quickly as they could
To see the start of a celebration,as perfect as it should.
Words were spoken,prayers were said,then came the Wedding vows
As this  couple stood before God and man,as perfect as precious flowers.
A budding young couple ,full of life and great love
Sent from heaven,and the good Lord above.
The crowd cheered,as the couple kissed,to seal the vows they made
A kiss of love,a kiss of lasting,which never was to fade.
The rice was thrown,the car was ready,to wisk the couple away
To go and celebrate,the promise they made,on this,their Wedding Day.

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

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

SUMMERWOOD COTTAGE

This early morning light, 
full of pink blush 
End of night 
I feel the blood rush 

The warmth of you, 
sets my heart on fire 
Soft breathing 
This closeness, 
I will never tire, 
for I love you 

This intense physical feeling 
Your love to me 
Your healing, 
is what I need you see 

This early morning light, 
flickering through, 
summer wood cottage 
Good bye to the night 
I love you too 

This night has passed............. 
So very fast 
I want it to last, 
the whole day too, 
because you want it............. 
as much as I do 

This emerging pink sky 
is for you and I 
Endless sky, 
for you and I to fly 

This beautiful night 
has now passed 
Pink sky, 
for you and I 
A new height, 
our love to last 

I trace my finger 
down your cheek, 
letting it linger 
It is you I seek 
Yearning sigh, 
under pink sky 

Midnight blue, 
has followed through, 
with pink sky 
Summer wood, 
awaking nearby 

Early morning breeze 
at summer wood cottage 
A new dawn, 
rising through the trees 

My love for you, 
under pink sky 
Here in summer wood 
Forever too 
This night  passing by, 
our love......... understood

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

ALL IN THE HEART

All I feel 
Not in the mind 
All in the heart 

I feel, 
and you are here 
All in the heart.. 
Is all I feel 
You are near 

Think... 
Live... 
Breathe... 
All in the heart 

The eyes, see... 
The heart... 
Infinately 

All you feel.. 
Inside of me.. 
All in the heart.. 
All you can see.. 

All in the heart.. 
The universe 
Feel for me 
All you can see

For the love of Princess Rose

For the love of Princess Rose.

Way back in the darkest times
There lived a wondrous Knight
He had blue eyes, and a handsome face
And his mind was very bright
He lived for goodness, his ideals
Were the highest in the land
And everybody loved this knight
They thought him mighty grand.

He shrunk from no one in the land
He’d fought ten dragons too
As he vied for the love of Princess Rose
Oh, he loved her so true
Yet she was loved by another knight
And so they had to fight
That was the way in those dark days
It was considered right

A tournament it was arranged
And the two men faced each other
Both swore that until the end
They would never love another
The fight was on, as Rose, she watched
The man she loved so much
Fight a man she could not bear
Who her heart did not touch.

Now Don, he was the Knight of choice
He fought like a blessed demon
He was not an evil man
Yet he was filled with Venom
And when the fight was over with
Her knight of choice did win
As love did conquer everything
And the princess married him.

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

What constitutes a shoe?

What constitutes a shoe? 
The leather bound tongues of
inglorious pomp,
ambling midst the glades…
 
pugilistic caffeine panders 
solely to the soul,
ergonomically agile, 
bar the finest detail…

eye-lashed straps 
entrenched in the name, 
toiling syllabic misnomers, 
shorn against the scornful 
blood of erstwhile colonialism,
perpetually in memorandum…

When the Lavender Returns

As cold as ice
Wrapped round your brain
And darkness unfolds
You’re breathing in pain

It’s been freezing here   
In this Land of Shattered Dreams 
It’s been freezing here 
This corrupted winter stings 

It’s been freezing here  		
(Où est la Lavande?)
Your body can’t stay warm  	
(Où est la Lavande?)
 It’s been freezing here  		
(Où est la Lavande?)
This cruel and criminal storm  	
(Où est la Lavande?)

But don’t give up
Don’t despair
Taste the hope 
Floating through the air

When the lavender returns
It’ll warm your frozen bones
Vivid violet clothes
In their candy overtones

When the lavender returns
It’ll race across the land
Rebel flower grows
In the palm of your free hand

If you look out your window
The ground’s parched and bare
If you call for your lover
She’s no longer there
If you ponder your life
Well, it feels like a wreck
And your failures are scars
You can never forget

As leaves turn brown
Sky fades to grey
You’re feeling the drought
The end of the day

It’s been lonely here
In this World of Fallen Souls
It’s been lonely here
With nowhere left to go

But don’t give up
Don’t despair
Taste the hope 
Floating through the air 

When the lavender returns
It’ll warm your frozen bones
Vivid violet clothes
In their candy overtones 

When the lavender returns   	
(Où est la Lavande?)
It’ll race across the land 	         
(Où est la Lavande?)
Rebel flower grows  			
(Où est la Lavande?)
In the palm of your free hand   	
(Où est la Lavande?)

When the lavender returns    	
(Où est la Lavande?)
It’ll warm your frozen bones   	
(Où est la Lavande?)
Vivid violet clothes  			 
(Où est la Lavande?)
In their candy overtones  		 
(Où est la Lavande?)

A New Day

I might sparkle in the night but I'm not the only star you might not see them in the sky it depends on where you are Am I the only light in your eyes that makes you smile when you cry if your favorite's what you say don't you blink it might fade away Only when we give everything we're truly ready for better things we invite ourselves off to drift the steam rises and our spirits lift Follow me, into sun sets be brave and strong with no regrets and when the sea takes the light we'll find a new day after the night there's still a new day after the night

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

Rapture's Light

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Song of the Loner

Cut out from the rest, feeling so left out I lay my head on my hands and sigh: Why did things have to happen this way Why is it that I was denied? Denied the basic friendship, A meager ounce of which could help, To grow in thought, deed, word and spirit, To help strengthen myself. Why is it that I feel the need, To sit in the corner and cry? The cold creeps in and I’m overcome By the darkness and void of the night. I lift my head and open my eyes, The tears they blur my sight, And through hazed vision I notice a single star, A lone beacon in the sky. The clouds they part and a million other stars Come out from hidden slumber; They join with that single star to make The glow in the night sky brighter. Combined with the light of the great white moon, They light up the earth below. Their twinkle and their glimmer reflects on the pool, Of tears lying on the floor. Suddenly the truth hits me: My life was playing right before me! I realize that soon the time would come When I would not be lonely. That there would come a day when I wouldn’t have to weep In self pity and dismay; That the clouds of hate and bitterness Would one day roll away. That the love and friendship I duly deserve Would fall like summer rain Refreshing my soul and replenishing my spirit Making me whole again. Yet till that day I have to wait And learn to shine on my own. So for now I stand up and wipe away my tears; My spirit no longer forlorn.

With This New Day

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


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

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

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


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

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


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

Family First

I cant believe Im going to have my own family, something I never had; 
Its time to step up and be a real dad; 
Now I can remember the things that make me happy and forget the things that make me sad;
 Its time that I start doing good than the bad; 
I want for my child to see me as a role model; 
Its time I break my own chains to that alcoholic bottle; 
I want to be that someone who can be trusted to follow; 
I silently cry at night because the truth is hard to swallow; 
I jus hope I can make that change today not tomorrow; 
I got to change before I end up in an?early hearst; 
My art is my gift and alcohol is my curse, I must break my own alcoholic thirst;
 I must relieve my own selfishness tendencies before they burst; 
I got to stop making alcohol my only because its no longer just about me, because my very own family comes first

The Miracle

Lift the wailing wood
Hammer the tortured nails
Place the ghostly steps
Below the battered rails

Invite those crazy strangers
Dressed in stranger clothes
Join the mighty miracle 
Ready to unfold

Building a stairway 
In the desert
Aimed toward the pure and honest sky
Building a stairway
In the desert
Going to rise for miles
And miles 

Leave this evil town
Where scorpions share your bed
Guilty snakes make a home
Deep inside your head

The bleeding sun
Burns your feet
Hangmen joke
Beggars weep

Buried bodies
Cry for help
Undertakers
Steal your wealth

Building a stairway 
In the desert
Aimed toward the pure and honest sky
Building a stairway
In the desert
Going to rise for miles
And miles 

We’re laughing and      					
We’re dancing				 	
In the desert				
Dancing in the desert			
Of our lives				

Can’t you see?
We’re dancing in the desert
Dancing in the desert 
Of our lives

Feel so free				
Dancing in the desert				
Dancing in the desert 			 		
Of our lives				

Free….so free
In the desert
Dancing in the desert
Of our lives

Lift the wailing wood
Hammer the tortured nails

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 Thought Of You

I Thought About You 

(My Her Story Of A Past Love)

I thought  about you and banished all doubt..
adoration projects inside out..
for  my love is a beautiful sphere void of all fear....
The sinister flees your Glen ,my robin takes flight.

I'm floating words flowing..
Darling I thought about you sweating tonight..
The solace of northeast winds lift me pass ..
For I am There with you bearing all..

I thought about you  baby through natures eyes..
lush green elms ,wildflowers..the spirit horse rides.. 
With honor and truth old soul essence abides...
Dreams blossom in timelessness..
your summer heat pressed against me..

The honey is still there from your kisses pressed against the glass..
from your temple of sound..
For I 'm a wanderer too..
I dwell pulsating in the realms of  your inner space..

Where ever I wander I do with all my heart, my soul,my being..
Forgive me my dearest,opening closing doors..
the clock ticks and alarms..

I fall , crashing our time barriers...
dizzy hissing,holding the thought of only Sean..

An eye for an eye

Though I am not considered to be a Christian, [I love most religions] But I lover to read the gospels of Mark and Mathew, so I wrote them all in verse...Peter

Eye for Eye.

Folk were listening to our lord
Such a crowd had gathered round
The news of this enigma
Had spread from town to town.
The multitudes all came to him
To hear the words he spake
He’d been speaking there for quite a while
And the day was getting late.

The lord with Passion in his tone
He told those multitudes
{There were poor and rich, and saints and sinners
The good Lords words, their food}
He said to them “now you have heard
An eye for eye, and tooth for tooth
But I give you another law
So listen to my truth”.

“Do not resist an evil person
When struck on the right cheek
Turn to him the other also
Just hear these words I speak
If someone wants to sue you
And take your tunic too
Then let him have your cloak as well
This, I do say to you”.

If someone makes you walk a mile
Then walk with him for two.
Give what one may ask you for
This be the thing to do.
If someone would borrow from you
Then do not turn away.
Hear ye this, it be the truth
These words you hear me say”.

The Lord's Prodigal Sons

Fierce as cold winds blow,
On a blustery winter's morn,
The raging battle brings horrors,
Such that man has never known.

For the dark rapture approacheth,
And the Lord's wrath is at hand,
Salvation's gate now closes,
And woe is the fate of man.

I sit here now in stark terror,
As I read the prophets report,
I can't imagine any scarier,
Stories told me of my Lord...

And a man who soon comes,
To set all this in motion,
One to whom many will succumb,
A wolf dressed in sheep's clothing.

The story does have a great ending,
But only for those who believed,
Who found the message he was sending,
These few who will be received.

But what of the rest of man,
Who for pride or gluttony fall,
Just where do these men stand,
When we're through with it all.

Keep reading - the story's complete,
For after the gates are closed,
In the lake you will still see,
Those who were damned and opposed.

Now by fire we are seasoned,
Is a lesson we should know,
And thus we can now reason,
Where these poor souls go.

To learn more lessons,
And perhaps someday become,
After fair sessions,
The Lord's prodigal sons.

Voice in the Night

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Call of hope
After the world turned dark

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Healing words
Made from
Angel heart

Oh, her chocolate whisper
Warm convincing breeze
Oh, her breathy laughter
In the shadow of my need 

Don’t you hear the voice?
Save  you from despair
Don’t you hear the voice?
Sent by ghosts who care

Don’t you hear the voice?
Rises like a prayer
Come to rescue you
From your earthly snare

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Call of hope 
Kissed my tears away

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Now I dance
To a magic serenade

Don’t you hear the voice?
Memories of home
Don’t you hear the voice?
Pretty as a poem

Don’t you hear the voice?
Vivifies your soul
Bathes you in a pool 
Love you’ve never known

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Call of hope
After the world turned dark

Voice inside the darkness
Gets into my head
Lady caller,
Take me, take me
To your bed

Voice inside the darkness
Gets into my head
Lady caller
Raise me, raise me
From the dead

Voice inside the darkness
Gets into my head

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

THANK YOU

I smile from the heart
I hug as I don't want to part
I speak 'cause I want to impart
I sing even until a quart

The words I once compose
I hope it did make you pause
To read, to smile, to think
To ponder, to wonder, not to sink

Even if you are not with me
I hope you feel what I felt
No hesitations I have made
Sadness, I always try to evade

All I have written is ME.

That's me speaking..
That's me sharing.
That's me inspiring..
That's me encouraging..

Indeed, I thank You
For those who comment
For those, whom I dealt
And those who dared help

Thank you.

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.

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

And So it Begin

And so it begins


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

IN MANTRA FORTIFIES

Preeminent is the birth of Christ.
We worship his life and seek his devise…

His dominant presence arises.
Aroused is our spirit.
Our soul is incandescent.
We are obligatory to the glory of God.
Luminescent is the essence of The Holy Scripture.

We sing gloriously.
We pulsate victoriously.
The Gospel is our voice harmonically.
Christ died on Calvary.

Hoisted to achieve amazing deeds, our life is a radiance of Heaven’s lights.
We worship the life of Christ.
Ascendant to prophesy of the world, peace is influential while war destroys.
Famine is metaphorically dumbfounded for the knowledge of God’s apostles.
Walk in rightful luminosity.
Insofar, your life is brilliance perceived.

We shout gloriously.
We pine exultantly.
The Gospel is our harmonic expression.
Christ died for our salvation.

Today we praise Christ, the Son.
Today we praise God, the Father.
One does not supersede the other.
Thru the Holy Spirit, we thump.
Through the Holy Spirit, God sends his Son.
The beat of our heart pounds in prayer as we bow.

Knees bent, by all means, amidst effervescent shimmering.

Croon praise!
Beatify the Lord’s way!
Our reliance is devoted to the Gospel resonated!

In mantra fortifies giving the highest praise to the life of Christ!
Refrain via song augments the Father and the Son.

Thru the Holy Spirit, we thump.
Through the Holy Spirit, God sends his Son.
The beat of our heart pounds in prayer as we bow.
Knees bent, by all means, amidst effervescent shimmering.

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..

The Market Girl's Smile

She bowed her head to the ground,
Focused on the grains of dust,
Her skin glistened in the morning sun,
Sparkling like the rarest opal to be found.

Whenever she rarely raised her crown,
I would look straight into the portholes to her soul,
And see a princess who had been locked away,
My gaze confused her, she returned to looking down.

As she carried her load, she would not move slow,
The way a snail does when he carries his home,
In the small busy alleys, she transported like a squirrel,
She seemed rather troubled, I just wanted her face to show.

When she finally stopped I gave her a smile.
A smile to let her know that this time is only for a season,
A smile to let her know that this struggle is for a reason,
A smile to remind her that there is One guiding her every step,
                                                                            Cradling her heart,
                                                                            Calming all her fears.

I hugged her as we parted ways,
And as I broke away,
I experienced raw beauty,
Beauty in its original form, its original state
What you would understand to be a gracious smile,
I saw as her soul beaming out through her facial features,
She had been ignited like a mountain cave torch.

It was amazing to see her whole aura reset.
The market girl’s smile, I will never forget.

The soul of the virgin

The soul of the virgin

Our Virgin is so practical
So critical she be
She’s always hard upon herself
Her words come loose and free
If she thinks that you have let her down
She’ll tell you this is so
She’s very clever with her hands
And she really likes to know.

She does her best in everything
Meticulous is she
She be one of the clever ones
She’s kind and she will be
A boon to anyone who needs her
She’s so dependable
She can’t abide in ugliness
Of any kind at all.

She has a downer on herself
She thinks she is not liked
She analyzes everything
She can look into your psyche
She won’t be fooled by anyone
And she worries about her health
Just to get to know this lady
Is a valid source of wealth.

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

China sets

Oh, Let’s get married in a white chapel
sip coffee, listen to blues 
 and read morning’s headlines. 

Let’s get married in white chapel
Live in a brick house, build a picket fence
 and watch the good neighbors stroll by 

Cause he’s something to look at
Can pick him out from bustling restaurant
  just by his gait

Cause he’s something to look at
got a wide mouth, gaping grin 
 always fashionably late. 

When he’s nervous, 
his posture is fleeting. 
it’s unfitting, 
because he’s got the world together. 

When he’s nervous, 
his words 
string together like magnets 
across a refrigerator door. 

But then-
I’ll say something ‘bout my world views
and you’ll suddenly deliver the quickest line 
and I’m laughing
finally i’m light 

Oh, Let’s get married in a white chapel
sip coffee, listen to blues 
 and read morning’s headlines. 

Let’s get married in white chapel
Live in a brick house, build a picket fence

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.

Coming out of the shadows

When I was a young man
I spent nigh on a year
In an ugly, war torn country
That drove me close to tears
They sent me home before my time
For my health was down a tad
And my nerves were shot to pieces
Like I was going mad.

They said I had the symptoms of
That post traumatic stress
And so they put me on a pension
Oh I was in a mess!
Anger, stress, anxiety
And paranoid as well
Oh, I was in the darkest place
An awful place to dwell.

I tried so many things, did I
To try to cure this thing
Gurus, shrinks, and self help books
But none of this did bring
The sanity that I did need
I just got worse and worse
As I drove all my love ones out
Oh, I was so damned terse.

Then one day I found this pair
Whilst searching through the net
They taught me how to look at me
How lucky can one get?
The looking made my life so sweet
I’m now completely sane
Each day’s so pure and wonderful
I’m through with all the pain.

Home is on the inside

Home is where love is loud without a word.
Where silent understanding can still be heard.

Where, when your confused, you know you'll be understood.
Where loved ones  would take your pain if they could.

Where the people laugh with you, and never at you.
Where you are still loved even when they don't like what you do.

Where the ones who care are never too far.
Where you finally realize who you are.

Where you find a strong shoulder and a tender ear.
Where you can be vulnerable without any fear.

Where you can be yourself and never have to pretend.
Where you are comfortable in your own skin.

Where your sadness is divided, and your happiness is multiplied.
Where there is always someone on your side.

Where you learned how to share, love, and give.

Home is where your heart and soul will always live.

THE WISHING WELL OF A SUN-RISE,

It is...within the tiny things of early morning, that moment breaths alive, it is within the tiny whisperings, that a melodye plays...like the very dear and the antelope, play home on the range.

so goes the melodye of heart beat, that plays quietly the songs of soul,

here a rhyme is born of day-light coming so soon, through the early morning eyes of the moon-light, and the starry dreams of twilight's transitioning...

into the light of a love letter written to dawn.

soul to soul conversing, as in this love letter, the letters just join hands with the words and just march across the sky...and at the end of the rainbow, there be plenty of golden time,

way down deep on the inside,

...as the inspired choir, of a bumble bee, or a butterfly, starts to sing, like tiny things that live,

flower to flower,
blossom to bloom,

watered and deeply cared for...

O' Eden.

I say, deep beneath the surface of a wishing well...where the pennies lay,

I wish a sun-rise.

HEARTSTONE AWAKENING PART2

trees whispered her name
for a queen was born
from a faerie and an archer
who had the soul of a poet
the love of his moondust
in an early summer dawn
a girl came in to this  world
filled with magic and the love of all things 

 aquila took his bow
drew forth an arrow
which the feathers were brown and gold
aimed towards the sky
and let it go
the arrow arced high
burst in to stars
that fell
among them
a star to carry
a star to keep
a star to remember
a new queen
that would join
all living things
under the forests of richest green

 the summer queen
laid a single leaf upon the child’s chest
it glowed, then shrank
became part of her
this, i had never seen
for the leaf
carried all of natures’ magic
in an extraordinary child
whose birth
signified all that is good
upon the great good earth

the queens and kings
the princes and princesses
all of heartstone
gathered
to see a tiny girl
who had the power of a single leaf
that lay close to her heart
that she knew
of the wise ways
that what lies within us
means, you are never alone

our tiny girl
who, in her time
would become the greatest living being
lay quietly in the great hall
surrounded by magic and majesty 
past kings and queens
from above
their hearts filled with wonder
most of all,
love
 

the leaf as i came to know
came from the great earthen king
who had passed on long ago
that there is always a past
a history
that can never be broken
it will always last
forever heartstone
never alone


we celebrated until dawn broke
sweet faerie music filled the air
darting lights everywhere
whispering trees spoke
i felt within my heart
as i held my moondusts’ hand

Weather's Changing

The air is sweet, the sky is clear
I know for sure that summer’s near
Pass my sandals and shades my dear
I’ve joy in my heart and nothing to fear

Winter was dark and long and cold
Not even the sun could break its cruel mould
It rained so hard I’m glad my house could hold
But when winter ended, my heart turned to gold

I’m searching a good spot, my place in the sun
I’m yearning for laughter, compassion and fun
To stretch my long legs, see how far I can run
To find my soul mate - and say “You’re the One”

Well I’ve found a good spot, I’m searching no more
I’m laughing and running until I’m sore
My heart has mended, its really not raw
Now I can say “This is what I’ve been looking for!”

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

I'm Free

God, I've questioned you so often On this journey we've been through... You've proven to me ore and ore, To just put my trust in you. I hear your gentle whisper Telling me so many things, Oh the joy beyond belief Just knowing you does bring. You've told me that I'm free, From condemnation here, And that with you I walk in wisdom And can take it anywhere. To use all for your glory, That you have blessed me with, For it is not my own, You have let me borrow it. Would I love the souls, You have placed upon my way? Would I share your glory, Each and every day? Would I come to realize, How real to me you are? Not some silent spirit, Somewhere among the stars. You're right here in my heart, You're in my husband's eyes, You're everywhere I look, You choose not to disguise. Oh Lord, my soul is singing, Your peace and love it holds, I pray that everyone I meet Takes one look at me and knows; That mighty is my loving God, Who wants good things for me, And through His grace and Mercy, My soul He has set free!

Jerusalem, Jerusalem

parody,  ballad

I was a child creating kidstuff,
I lied and cheated just enough
to feel the guilt when all alone at home.
I copied homework from friend Sue
and passed it down the row to Lou.
We knew so little of Jerusalem.

Jerusalem, Jerusalem  (chorus repeats after each verse)

When in the end, I turned a teen
I tried the drug and boozing scene.
With just a few bad trips, it all hit home.
I spent a weekend in the jail
I thought I’d died and gone to hell.
No peace in that place,  no Jerusalem.

So glad was I when they said to me
let’s go to church as family.
It was belief that brought us to Shalom.
We’d fought like cats and dogs for aye
There had  to be a better way.
True contentment began at Jerusalem.

Of course, there is a God above!
I know Him as the God of love.
He  made the rules and guides us on to home.
He wrote the law, then paid the price
Son, Jesus  came as sacrifice
so we could know the way to Jerusalem.

'Twas there I learned to place me last
to put God first;  now when they ask,
“How come on Sundays you never stay at home?”
I am one who found that lost chord
no longer scared to serve my Lord -
I’ve found the peace that comes in Jerusalem.

I did not take Christ’s name in vain
I am a Christian with much to gain
and thus I greet you with a hearty Shalom.
I cannot keep Christ to myself
I cannot put Him on the shelf
for He is the Way to blest Jerusalem.

Jerusalem means  place of peace;
Jerusalem needs no police.
we’ll see that when God comes to take us home.
Salvation means that we have learned
forgiveness never will be earned.
This gift is from the Hope of Jerusalem.

substituting these lyrics for Larry Cohen's Masterpiece 'HALLELUJAH.'
I make no apology for the up-beat nature of this parody.
Cohen and I just found different lost chords.

Why I Write

I write
 to verbally wrong those who are blind
 without written rights 
with no lyrical sight
 living in the poems day not knowing its what happens in the poems dream at night shedding literal darkness upon my lights 
with a bit of courage feeling fright in the sky
 flying like a chinese kite 
eating away at the core sugar cake bite
 chopped verbs like cow skin tripe 
in the words personal hype through letters slowly but surely typed 
small yet reaching heights 
among a culture bleeding yet still choked tight
 because its not a maybe or a might
 poetically doing what I do when I WRITE.

~COAT OF ARMS~

COAT OF ARMS


Last night I couldn't sleep,for thinking only you...
As I wrapped in warm embrace,your spirit tinted blue
To oust away thine pangs,in hopes to see thee smile...
I'll yoke ye 'pon my shoulders,to carry through this mile

To trade your tears of sorrow,and see them shed in joy...
I'd jest for thine amusement,and be your favorite toy
For thine malady been expelled,I'd invoke it banished 'way...
Taking it 'pon mine self,so you've strength to seize th' day

Though I'm not an king,nor prince 'pon ivory steed...
Th' possessions I've procured here,are thine if felt th' need
I'll sweep thee off thy feet,if not familiar with th' waltz...
To breathe ye 'cross th' ballroom,as an feather floating 'loft

Mark mine words I state here,and hold me to their true...
I'll prove I 'steem thee precious,as unfeigned I surely do
Just promise me one thing,that next time when your down...
You'll wear these words as armor,'til I mend thy broken crown

PROGRESS

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

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

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

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

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

The Heart's Anxiety

Shall I compare thee to a Fall Afternoon,
Nature's final chance, before eventual doom,
Opportunity for some and failure for a few,
Love is in the air, however, what will you do?

She has an intellect worth noting and long hair always glowing,
However, without effort, there is no knowing,
No clues ever seem to be showing,
Being vague is a curse, and a curse worth knowing.

My mind is in a haze as I think about asking her,
She could make life worth living, or just slam the door,
She could have a heart of ice to make me go "BUR"
But honest, what use is the waiting for?

Here is my chance as the night comes clear,
Time is important and the last leaf is near,
Risk is needed for all that is dear,
It is better to fail, than to miss something so near.

Antarctica

Antarctica (Ernest Shackleton tribute)

To your shores came as a pilgrim
Knowing that I wasn’t welcome
All I wanted was to walk
Across your land of ice and rock

But you trapped my ship in ice
Blew cold winds into my eyes
Wanted me to pay the price
Hardship’n’ pain did not suffice

I won’t give up! No, I won’t stop!
On the wings of faith and hope
Between sky and endless depth
I’ll walk the line of life and death

My chances aren’t of greatest height
To save the lives you tried to smite
You’ve gotta know I’m gonna fight
As it’s my duty and it's my right!

To A Missing Love

I miss the days,
We shared together,
And the love we shared,
When it was there,
Believe it or not,
My love for you,
Will always remain,
In my heart,
No matter where you may go,
For we have been,
Through a whole lot together,
That shows my love for you,
Is as true as it becomes,
For one day you will see,
That no one will stand beside you,
The way that I have,
During these troubled times,
And never leave your side,
To be there through thick and thin,
The way I was for you,
Being very true during each forsaken time,
Even though you were pushing me away,
By doing what you did,
Which caused us many problems,
I felt as if everyone else mattered,
More to you,
Than me.

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

HEARTSTONE AWAKEING PART 1

to heartstone , we travelled
with our child
we crossed the bridge of the morning star
left our home at the place of the rising moon
a new child to be blessed
in the great hall
to be seen
by kings and queens
by all

 
to the forests of redwood
to the east of the mountains
we came to the stream of sighs
the beauty of trees
eagles in magical skies
through the meadows
fields of flowers
blue butterflies around
shining blue
they knew she was here
faeries flew
 

my moondust carried our girl
to the door
colours flying
all of heartstone love, to unfurl
that a child could  carry
everything that mattered in this world
the doors opened wide
the princesses of heartstone
took us inside
stars flew
magic coursed through
flower petals fell
such joy
what we brought in to this world
under a tiny girls’ spell

 
the summer queen bent down
kissed the tiny girl
a summer birth at dawn
she held her
tears in her eyes
spoke gently
“with this child heartstone is reborn”

pure and bright
as a heartstone starry winter night
the girls’ smile shone
as she lay in the summer queens’ arms
we all looked on in delight
my moondust was serene
the heartstone in the great hall
began to glow
wondrous light emanating
unusually beautiful
for this was the realizing
of a special queen

never a child so young
had been made
to become a queen
that she would rule
all of the forest of richest green
her time had begun……
the heartstone was brought to the tiny girl
she smiled with delight
with the knowing look of the wise
she touched the stone
stars burst forth
in bright amethyst light

DARK FOREST

The lakes edge 
Shone in silver light 
A moon , so bright, 
in a dark forest night 

The moon rose silently 
In a clear starlight sky 
The creatures of the night 
Came out in a dark forest, 
to play, in moonlight 

Such unnaturally tall trees, 
with no branches in sight 
No leaves 
Stood still 
In a dark forest 
Under moonlight 

As I drew closer 
The tall trees were all in a row 
No branches in sight 
I pulled away the tangled vines 
I could see... 
Masts, spars ropes and lines 

The ships! 
The wood in which a ship is made 
Returned to the dark forest 
Where the keel was shaped and laid 

The wooden ships that carried the Heartstone 
Across a sea, so blue 
Had returned to a forest 
That the timbers once knew 

When a ship comes to die 
It must return 
To where its timbers were born 
A ship to lie.... 
Amongst the trees 
The masts, swaying in a gentle breeze 

The whispering trees 
Took the ships 
Took the wood 
Made it their own 
As any magic could 

In a dark forest 
Graceful ships of wood 
No longer hear the sea roar 
instead of sails they once wore 
They hear birds singing 
Leaves rustle 
Masts creaking 

Ships, run aground 
In a dark forest 
Back to wood 
Back to trees 
Waiting to be found 
Leaves replaced sails 
Spars became branches 
Became something new

Crimson Blood Sunset

Crimson Blood Sunset

If I could grab a piece of sunset at days end.
I would nurture it the night through,
That at sunrise, there would be twice the light.
How right it is to be in light.
As darkness descends, to grab a piece of sunset.
And set time on end, such that endings seldom matter and beginnings dawn the 
night sky like second chances dripping dew drops of fading sadness.
Ah what a sunrise that would be,
If I could grab a piece of sunset on such a day that things went right and I fought 
like a soldier with a newly sharpened sword of kindness.
Such a sunset, Such a sunset, if I could grab a moment’s peace, I’d grip it tight 
and never loose that hold to what’s right.
If I could tell my wife I loved her and mean it.
I’d tell her a thousand times in a thousand tiny things that men do in passing, but 
make me shudder.
A thousand nights of sunrise I tell you.
A thousand nights of sunrise, telling time to stop its pestering.
Tyrannical time beckoning to days end.
But if I could grab such that sunset, bright, brilliant, rainbows of light convincing 
me of my savior’s love.
I would bask in that moment nurture it, such that at sunrise there’d be a 
thousand Jesus loves you’s shining for all the day to see.
And me too, shining bright in such that double sunrise,
Spawned from second chances from secret sunsets.
If I could grab a moments peace just long enough to stare beyond this endless 
night of fear and monotony.
Ah Pride, let me alone and leave me be,
To grab this sunset.
Embroidered with purple and crimson sunshine.
Blood stained sunshine, convincing me that Jesus loves me and there is nothing 
to fear.
If I could grab a hold of that crimson blood sunset, now that would be something!

THE GREAT FOREST TAPESTRY

In a basin of jewelled bronze

The leaves lay

Many colours

Of many shades

To become a tapestry

Trees never die

They are forever made

 

A soft wind blew

Gentle on the leaves

The Queen took them

Kissed them too

Made many

Threads spun

Magical weaves

The trees have begun

 

Upon the cloth

A mighty tree grew

In shades of green

Of soft leaf

Texture of bark

Of branches, seen

 

The trunk grew strong and tall

Of threads spun

Texture of bark

I can hear its’ heart

The first of many

The trees have begun

  

Branches reached out to play

Touching the sky

The joy

To see how it grew

Everyday

 

The leaves from the basin

Of jewelled bronze

 Carried by the summer queen

With a soft kiss….

One by one

They were blown onto the tapestry

The leaves multiplied

Faeries darted back and forth

Sewed each one

Of threads spun

Woven magic

The tree has begun

 

The heart of the tree

Could be heard

Very softly sighing

The first of many

Upon a tapestry

Where leaves were laid

Branches reached out

Touching the sky

That a Queen made

 

To a castle door

Leaves were left

Memories of suns

and seasons

For trees never die

Of threads spun

Woven magic

The trees have begun

ACROSS THE NIGHT

Faeries flew

Around the tower of light

A Faerie Moondust Queen

A welcoming sight

In a world hidden

In the night

                        

Dancing lights

Ethereal glow

This I saw

Above and below

 

A welcoming Queen from the night

Of Moondust

Love

Starry trails

Around the tower of light

 

From the heart

All I could see

Is the tower of light

That lit the inner me

 

The ethereal glow

From the inner me

It is the secret

I came to know

 

The Faerie Moondust Queen

Brought me here

From the forests of richest green

Across the night

In moonlight

In moon shadow

To the heart  I began to know

POWER OF FAITH TO ACTIONS

before, i have been chasing the future...
true, there is a must & need to prepare..
yet, who knows what tomorrow can bring..
Wisdom and A heart to decide, our gifts from God..

It lies within us...
Within our own very selves..
How our life will be..
How our future will be..

It's wrong to lay it in all to God...
It's wrong to say: He always there..
It's wrong to depend it all to Him..
why o why????

Cause it us who is living..
It is our duty as humans to go striving..
It is in us to not never give up..
Instead to pursue believing...

Doing progressive productive actions..
not to sit and fool around...
not to be lazy and to be as like parasites..
nor be like also gold - diggers...

It is our cumulative deeds that will lead us..
It is by our most definite specific decisions...
It is by our first step and the risks..

above all of these efforts and foregoing acts..
God will see; God will do His way..
He will touch whatever is in us...
In His God's grace and time, He will make all fit...

How else

Hardwork, 
Humility

If I took

A 
Companion, 
Then 
would I 
evidently 
languish 
till my 
Dying day,
If I didn't 
sweat 
towards 
my dream, 
thus 
would I 
worship 
daily at 
Life's 
'Abyssmal' 
Sanctuary,
For as A 
Man I 
heeded 
Success's

Cradle me in your arms

Wipe away my tears to dry
Cuddle me when ever I cry

You walk while I hop

A Day Vs. A Lifetime

A day in love with my very best friend:
That's all I was given.
Then,
Straight out of Heaven,
God sent me an angel instead.
He sent me a lifetime of love til the end.
Thank you for that day.
Thanks for going away.
Now, I can smile and say,
"Thank you, God, for a day of pain,
And for the love of a lifetime that followed."

WELLSPRING

You are all together desirable
and so my soul longs for you
hold me close don't let me go
I need to know your love is true

I had not thought  possible
this kind of love to know
the kind that people dream of 
of our origins ages ago 

More beauty than hanging gardens
or the wonders of seven worlds
nor crafting by the hands of men
fallen   it's heights were hurled

Like the rain in desert places
and dew in a thirsty land
desire avidly your own embrace
and be led by your own hand

Drink from the well inexhaustible 
the everlasting spring of joy
whose word is rooted in virtue
which hatred would seek to destroy

A cistern in the desert deep
an oasis in parched land set
you draw the hearts of multitudes
lest the setting of love they forget

Like well watered resting places
where the fountains of the deep
saturate the flowering meadows bloom
whose treasuries our memories keep

Job 8  , Isaiah 58

Breaking bread

Tiny dirty hands layered in filth, grim under the nails, what dread do you face as you toil and toil throughout the long frightful day?

There is no comfort behind broken walls, no comfort in mothers arms, no safety offered to your wondering soul. Tiny hands scavenge for food, finding only aged bones with little meat, few scraps to feed your aching abdomen. Those hands so small, so cold, trembling uncontrollably, wrapped around your petite frame, your mind replaying “How will I survive today?” But you toil, toil on.

The water there is none. Only blackened pools of thick mud and how you long to taste the cool refreshing drips on your tongue, to soak your calloused and bruised toes, but that fantasy has long been gone.

Feeling as though you where made to suffer, made to grieve, want and never  to obtain you start to weep. Those hands, those tiny dirty hands reach up and gently push aside the free falling tears that seem to never stop.

Though you can’t see her, her pain is real.
A child of hunger, a child of fear, her wanting is palpable, honest, and correct, no lusting just dreams all shattered by circumstance and sadly she is not alone.

So as you sit in your homes surrounded by loving faces, grand objects and perfectly set dinner places, give thanks as your hands, clean and untouched by poverty break bread.

Country Music is just good ole American soul

Country Music is just good ole American soul
from the rhythm of the guitars
to the screaming strings of the fiddle and the beat of the drums
to the words that are written and sung 
by the men and women who have lived the life

singing about life, love, divorce, guns, and God above
words that have meaning, emotion and devotion that tell a story
about the American way of life and glory 
that you identify with because it’s real
letting you know how we all feel 
 it’s your life’s story as well that you identify with

songs that bring the tears, sadness, joys and smiles from ear to ear 
as you tap your toes, snap your fingers, and slap your knee
and dance the two step until quarter to three 
songs that set you free or bringing back an ole memory  

country music is all about the loving, the good, the bad and the ugly 
 were all proud to be Americans because it is our life were singing about
country music is the salt of the earth, mixed in with 100 other spices

country music is good for the heart, the mind the soul it has its roots 
from the beginning of American history
even George Washington was overheard singing country songs

country music helps the whiskey the moonshine, and beer to go 
down a whole lot smoother 
country music is in the air where the blue grass grows, the lazy river flows
to where the yellow flowers on the mountain grows

God bless the men and women who sing and write the country music songs 
it’s just good ole American soul music

unconquerable king john

a fire breaks out in his pants
whenever she walks into the room
but she just laughs
at how quaint he is
she has eyes only for the old man at
the end of the bar
his beat era leather socks are just up her alley
his pocket protector lifestyle is just
the thing for her wedding plans
she could always see herself
with his type of narrow shoe smart fella

he leaves her and her lover
at the dark bar
and wanders the lobster cages
looking to trap the feelings
that made him feel like
unconquerable king john
with his magna carta series pen
but this night is too full of babe sweet
and her pocket protector cowboy
so he goes home
to lay on his bed on imaginary nails
and suffer all the trials that good men should
wants to be worthy for the pay off
wants to be in line for the pearly gates

babe sweet and her man
live up the coast now
they own a bed an breakfast catering to the insane
who write great novels
on the walls in crayon
and spend their nights
hanging out on the roof singing ballads
to babe sweet
and her cowboy who lasso's the moon
its a wonderful life plays on the tv
every night year round
cause thats the dream they are sellin
that if you work hard
someday itll pay off

jerry garcia's picture hangs
in the lobby
he looks out at the changed world
with the shocked expression
of how did all these people miss the point
as the just go on beating eachother up
and crashing the gates
he is in the back room of babe sweets place
hiding from all the gretchens
and trying to redraw the lines of reality
we all got lost out there
gotta reinvent yourself
before the gretchens and the hangers on tear it all down
gotta bend the road before it bends you
just like unconquerable king john

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.

High School Showdown

I came home to Mom's house, 
After being booted out of Dad's, 
And though they called me the Mouse, 
I had grown into a strapping young lad, 

A high school student who never fit in, 
I was a loner and an outcast, 
You could find me outside smoking, 
Trying to defeat my sordid past, 

But once in a while, 
Trouble just came my way, 
There was one unusual rile, 
Let me tell you about that day, 

It started the day before, 
When a gang cut in line, 
And hit my little brother, 
When I stepped up this time, 

They got mad and decided, 
To kick me while I was sitting alone, 
Hit in the back I jumped up and asked, 
Which loser kicked me in the back bone, 

Silence that day was all I got, 
But the next day I found the truth, 
For the guy who kicked me in the lot, 
Was now walking with a cast upon his foot. 

They came at me once again, 
Calling me out to fight the leader, 
And he asked me to fight him, 
Behind the gym and in his fever, 

He wanted to take my life, 
For humbling him at lunchtime, 
They would pull their knives, 
Gang up on me in this fight, 

But I told him no, 
Fight me right here and now, 
Come on let's go, 
Let's have our showdown, 

Right here in front of everyone, 
And his gang started to form behind him, 
And I began to fear as they reached a dozen, 
But I stood there firm and grim, 

Ready to take them all on, 
And suddenly fear crossed their faces, 
Then one by one they were done, 
Leaving his side they left empty places, 

And soon they all left, 
Including my adversary, 
And I was amazed at this gift, 
In the face of a certain beatdown, victory! 

Then as I turned to leave I found, 
The reason the gang ran away that day, 
For behind me stood dozens of kids from town, 
Who were tired of the gang and their evil ways, 

So when you believe you are all alone, 
You may be the one person who, 
Can bring people along, 
When others are acting the fool.

In Walyunga

In Walyunga

There is a place I used to go
When I was fit and strong
The place it was called Walyunga
And I felt I did belong
In those hills above the river
I’d walk for countless miles
In those days, with healthy body
To walk, it was my style.

I’d walk until I found my place
Where there lived an old dead tree
I’d sit on it to meditate
And look right into me. 
Some times as I walked these hills
I’d hear a sound like thunder
And then I’d see a wondrous sight
In this place called Walyunga.

A horde of Kangaroos would come
As they thundered through those hills
They’d cross the track in front of me
And I would stand stock still
Then as they passed, the biggest guy
Would stop just yards from me
To see if I did pose a danger
He was a sight to see.

He’d stand there for a tiny while
Though it seemed like eons to me
Then when he saw I meant no harm
He satisfied would be
So he’d bound off to lead his horde
To the river they’d head for
Oh, seeing such a magic sight
Would fill me with such awe.

To give you up

To give up the pain and sorrow 
The tears and lonely sad nights 
The arguments and misunderstandings. 

To have you 
That is the best thing ever 
That is the best feeling of possession there is 
The one thing that makes me smile 24/7. 

I don't want to give you up 
I just want the fights to go 
The misunderstandings to get understood 
The tears to slowly disappear 
The frowns to slowly turn to smiles 
Sad nights to be cuddled in. 

I need you next to me, 
But I don't need your pain and hurt. 

Come back to me,

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.

The War General..Not Just another Field Marshal

He is the African War General,
After his massive Digestion of Seven "JUMBO" Spliff Joints and more,
The sage wont forget to mention his Gulp-in of four pints of dark 'Wicked' Rum before 
His Very taste of a Healthy,Well-Balanced Breakfast,
His soul must be very Strong or Twice this Dead..'Once a soldier must I die a 
soldier'..Words that put the heart of man to rest.

To carry-on...thus to Tarry-on...We must Carry-on 'Words I learnt from The very Lips of 
the King of the Clan..He Truelly Tarried-on,
In Tarrying-on what shall we do...Bowing to worship 'Man' what oxygen shall we breathe,
How many campaigns did He Launch,
Sitting before this campfire chanting war Slogans,Songs and corrosive War Slangs,
I believe it was his very words that made those Flames and Sparks leap this High,
In the battle's very heat did he Unsheath the Heads of Three War Chieves and more.

He is the African War General...
Please do imagine him as he Emerges so strongly from the burning coals that attendeth 
the paths of a locale warlord,
Steaming red foaming blood...It is a hard sight..Really not too Dark a sight for an 
Intelligent promising Lieutenant,
Who took that last life saving accurate shot that saved 'The-Then-Fiercest-of-War-

Who slung that same lethal...killing shot..Pumping in Hot-Lead into the same Man we all 
slaved to Save.
The Sundry Deeds of a Highly Martial Mind...Appraising Salient Field Marshals and More.

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

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.

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

Savior

 I walked a broken road, Why couldnt I see, Why did I refuse to admit that You were my only Hope; My only Chance of survival? Instead, You were my last resort(option); My last call. I tried everything I knew, I thought I could make it without You, But I was beaten down, bruised, cut open, and torn apart, lost and alone; I needed You. All I had to do was cry out, but something held me back; My pride was so strong. Then I hear Your Voice, Reminding me how much I need Your Help; I needed to give it up, And fall into Your ever-loving Embrace, Because You are the only One who can save me, The One I cant live without, My loving Father.

I arise in love with love it grows its fruit out of my wings love makes my heart sing, romance. love makes me selfless in a state of agape. love keeps me thinking in isolation, hoping in dejection. love makes me express on bed of roses entangled an intertwind in bliss woven passions that rejects lust, yet invites love. the necter is sweet as pleasures trancend and ravish my trinity oh love is faithfull, willing and definately able. oh definately able! Love existed before Cain killed Abel It will bring joy to it's possessors Captivating it's keepers Uplifter of weepers Bringing pleasure to those who express it, who grow it live it make it.

LEARN HOW TO FIGHT YOUR BLUES

Write yourself the silliest song...
when everything seems dark and dull,
and all that can be changed for all; 
write and just sing along!

Learn how to fight your blues
with the quickest remedy:  think of sunshine,
never of rain;  dream of rainbows 
over the distant horizon!
For every sad mood that lingerd for too long, 
there's a world of surprises waiting in your song!

Most people think  that loving themselves
is enough to complete their mission in life,
but I tell you otherwise:  love others
more than you love yourself,
and you'll be rewarded in due time:
look at the lives of those great givers! 

Learn how to fight your blues,
and there's no way you can lose;
if everything were easy, nobody would complain...
going up-hill is too tough for the weak,
gather your strength and be the first to reap
whatever you deserved and wasn't given!

Write yourself the happiest song,
look up and merrily sing along!

My Best Friends

They are the ones that I met
They are the ones that I have found
They are still here and I am Glad
Because I would never want to go down

They are the laughters and smiles
They are the sky and the sun
They are the ocean and wind
They are the only ones

They are my best Friends
They are the people who I hang on to
They are my best Friends
We are not just some bunch of Fools

Susan is feminine but she's the daisies in spring
Her eyes sparkled and she is strong in what she thinks

Mat is a flirt but he is the joker of the group
He never likes girls to treat him some kind of a fool

Susan loves fashion designs and talks like any other girl
Mat loves himself to flirt with the girls around the world

And I dont care for what they are
And I am just glad that these are the people that made me come this far
And I would not make a mistake in pulling ourselves apart
We will keep ourselves in daylight when we beginning to feel the dark

And I love them more than everyone can see
They feel like they are more than just a family

Because they are all i have in me

All I Have in me..

TURN THE DREAM ALIVE

I hear the drums of my heart, loudly singing for my dreams to execute. I remember when I was little; ‘the greatest writer’ was my cadence. No, I haven’t forgotten my rhymes; I have just turned them to beatitudes. ‘Whoever is a hard worker will be the greatest writer’ am the commander of my dreams stomping heavily to lettering. Am by shank's pony a thousand speed per mile chucking in and out of the road. I remember when I once hurted my brain and lost my sanity; ohh I remember; How can forget? Everything was ambiguous with no future to reach the bastion. Although never recovered my lost wrecked pieces, but still hold to the stick of one day reuniting with my fellows. Life is a thrash about that I can attest. Sometime pinned to a cold yet rained on the slippery road. You might have sighted the grey clouds, started a marathon but you still lost the chase, at times you never saw it coming, you’re chicken poured with nobody to umbrella you. Life is like that, at times you lose, at times you break the record. Life is what you make it. Everybody tears down at times, but it’s how you feed the fears that counts. In most of the frozen falls you will stand alone, in the summer a thousand flies will flock your way. Life is all lessons don’t worry about the seasonal labels. Someday I will be at the peak with many beaks screeching my forename. Maybe am still the uncrown queen but someday princess of the playwright will be my designate. I can bet my blueprint will never say goodbye as it always lighting as the day, a souvenir that can’t go away. Now still a shadow searching for my right frame, neither a sinner to contain dozens of all this hope. Before a thousand crescents change their fate, I can bet I would have already revolutionized my state, that’s the least just wait and spot ‘the supreme authoress of the planet’ fitting my cranium.

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.

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

Jesus Lifted Me!

I nailed my sins,
To my Lord's cross.
Leaving them there,
I suffered no loss!

The burden load I carried,
Was now so much lighter.
The life ahead of me,
Now is much brighter!

Feeling the freedom,
Of walking with Him.
Drawing strength from Jesus,
To turn away from sin.

Growing in love,
For ALL mankind.
Holding grudges no more,
In heart and mind.

Blessed by His Spirit,
Jesus lifted me!
Surrendering each day to Him,
I can live carefree!

Love Ballad

 A gentle knight chirped and roaming the way of desert at night.
 His dancy browny hair, blue eyes made romantic guy and couraged.
 He lured by lovely song beyond a hill.
 Eagerly, he rushed his horse and fell swooned.

 He lightly opened his eyes but did not movable, groaning pains.
 His wounds tide with herb and bluey fungus.
 A spinster, an oldman lived in this hut sitting anxious looking.
 The nature of love girl sing a praying song under a coniferous.

 He falls asleep and his wounds healing miracle by love.
 He said many gratitude thanks and parting smiles.
 The spinster missed her heart and possess a minute death.
 She weaving her heart gifted garland to him with splendid love-smells.

 The nightjar song impressed his love seek, find to fail.
 The red war period started, as his melancholy love.
 He stabed not but earning many love wounds.
 His inner voice of love but fluttering dove!

 He became love-sicker and also think about the bewitching voice.
 Again he searched, his red wounds badly hurt.
 His instinct wishes that met her love-face lastly.
 He brings only thorny's love-blood at shadow night.

 Dews fluttering with his worthy red-blood gently to the heaven.
 He is rescued by the same spinster his heart-venus.
 She takes a letter and his pleasant love-subject written with golden tunes.
 Her tears of love tinkling on, the love-wounds bleeding with joyous!

 She feeds him on the love's last breath of lyric but sad love-melody chill.
 The worthy fairest carved immortalized their love-chapter.
 If you smelled the monumental garland it described the unbelievable love-tale.
 The love-origin pastoral surrounded with red grasses one touch it
    amazingly love-sicker!

Mallee Rain

A twisting whirly musters
Hard baked leaves and bark,
There’s another red sunset
Just before it’s dark.
The wilting wattles weep,
And plea ‘I can’t live on!’
The strong keep fighting drought,
The weak, soon dead and gone.

Wheat fields and their bounty,
Wither in the sun to die,
Red dust leaves forever,
Adding color to the sky.
A man who’s living heartache,
Is this economic pain.
Prays to the Lord and waits,
Then he can smell the rain.

An inch falls in the Mallee,
The Mallee don’t need much
To fill the pans and lowlands,
That yearns to feel the touch.
In the days that follow,
Hunger turns to green.
An inch here in the Mallee,
Enhances every scene.

Lightning dances in the sky
To the beat of thunders drum,
Heartbreak storm passes on,
The follow up don’t come.
But drifting from the west,
Clouds hide the sun away,
Land is cast with shadow,
The sky turns steely gray.

And rain falls in the Mallee,
The Mallee don’t need much
To fill the pans and lowlands,
That yearns to feel its touch.
In the days that follow,
Hunger turns to green.
Rain here in the Mallee,
Enhances every scene.

I stand in the corner, waiting in the night
Don't say goodbye
Don't Leave Me Behind

I know it's impossible for you to realise
I know it's not fantasy
But wihout you made me cry..

I can't take a chance to be with you
I cant have a moment to stay..

So i hope to stay with you one day..

One day..
One time.

Will be fine..

When each day i'll see you
I will try to run away..
But now my heart had changed

I don't care if it takes my life
I want to know I was true

I can't cry because I'm holding them inside
I am praying for the pain to end
The world will just turrn from light to dark..
And my lfie will never be the same again..

Happiness

Different ways and different people,
One thing we want at any cost,
Is to find real happiness,
We never wanted to be lost.

And it feels like a lifetime,
But suddenly we find,
It was there the whole time,
The happiness was inside.

Now our saviour comes to see us,
And he tells us one more thing,
We must stay strong and keep searching,
Searching deeply within ourselves.

And it feels like a lifetime, 
But suddenly we find,
It was there the whole time,
The happiness was inside.

We were blinded by the darkness,
Now into our lives we bring love and peace,
Pushing out all of the hate and anger,
So now we can love ourselves.

And it feels like a lifetime, 
But suddenly we find,
It was there the whole time,
The happiness was inside.

We find our comfort in each other,
Letting ourselves live in beauty,
So we live long and prosperous,
Together as one.

And it feels like a lifetime, 
But suddenly we find,
It was there the whole time,

Worth Fighting For

Walk of fame,

THE BLESSINGS OF ANOTHER DAY

Thank you Lord for waking me up, and starting me on my way.
For health, food and shelter, clothed in my right mind,
The blessings of another day.
You watched over me as I slumbered and slept,
Kept hurt harm and danger away.
Thank you Lord, as I praise your name
For the blessings of another day.
You bid my moments a while longer to roll on
Through your tender mercies and grace.
You gave me patience power and strength to run this Christian race.
‘Tis not by my goodness or much that I’ve done 
That granted me these good deeds.
But by your compassion and faithfulness,
And your promise to supply all my needs.
So I thank you Lord for loving kindness and care, 
And the joy you sent my way.
But most of all I express gratitude

This is where I thought you would be
This is where I knew I was wrong
My heart could not bear the pain
When I knew I was just a shadow all along

You held secrets I thought I could know
You gave me trust I thought I had
Now, my heart burns with so much sorrow
Could anything get worse than that?

I am the forgotten in your world
I was waiting for someone to let me rise
I am nothing but the air around you
I am broken and my visions became blind

I am lost in between
The forgotten world I have been
This heart that is breaking
It won't stop till I become unseen

Because I am the forgotten

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

MAKE EVERY MOMENT COUNT

Make every moment count...
this is the promise I make to myself,
to deny the certainty of death:
an assumption stripped of all reality;
and it daunts others, not me...
as long as I get that glimpse of eternity!

Be an essential part of the living:
sharing, giving, reveling, grieving and forgiving...
instead of rebelling against society,
and fighting against an invisible adversary;
but if your  aspirations
are the strenght of your goals
everything takes on a new meaning,
even making your story worth-telling!

Make every moment count
by being clever and not indignant;
never live by pride and greed,
or expect a bountiful return...
when nothing is being achieved,
and praise can't be earned!
 
Be of a keen mind and love patiently...
revive a broken spirit with the kindest word,
and reduce your worries to nothing:
and though the world's vanities cannot be changed,
make an effort to have your voice heard;
what is torn down sadly...can also be built up happily!

Make every moment count
and ignore the ticking of the clock,
to let awareness guide you through anticipation;
time is like roses with thorns:
it pokes you and makes you bleed,and unless
you show meekness and sympathy,
it won't hit  you low...but grant you victory!

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

Invisible

Being invisble
Like I was not there at all

Being unnoticed
Like there is a chance I could fall

Being too far away
Like I have forgoteen how you smiled

Being alone
Like the world is nothing in my life

Because I was invisble to you
Because I could not be seen
Because I haven't seen you
Because we forgotten everything

Being invisible
Like there's nothing but air

Being hollow
Like being erased undeclared

Being the Only One
Like the world is not fair

Being so Curious
Like I wanted to know what's not there

As I passed through dimensions of time
As i walked the earth with my own two feet
My world became so dark without the light
Everything just come and flow like a passing wind

Being Invisible
And that's what am I now..

I am invisible
I am unable to come around

Because you can never see me now

The Eagle's Gift

A being of ill-decree,
there, thoughts of 
loves, lost to betrayal.

Taking remembrance, a 
dove nestles amongst 
some branches.

The love and glory
of thine own, embarked
upon the mystery
entrances.

As vigor pursuits
of fulfillment ensue,
let redemption entrail.

The mischievous bard,
did let on, a 
curious, chance of labor.

For the sorrows
of valor's past
so subtley mistaken.

A faint glimmer in
his eyes, suddenly
gave way to a 
slight interest,
o'er God, 
forsaken.

Let the perils
of failures of 
our past.  
Blessed. . .
not find, traitor.

Twilight settled
upon the lonely
desert setting, of 
rugged palms 
and mystic wallow.

With a whimsical
embrace to surety
and the galliance 
of the setting sun's 
bravado.

A plan of divine
right.  An expression
of knowledge shared,
our El Dorado.

As the bard's 
spirit did chime
of righteous
victory.  Yes, victory
was sure to follow.

For vises of sweet
mysterious tidings,
due to his own accord.

The mistress gypsy,
there spied swaying,
as the Eagles rose 
and soared.

But There Are Stars

One day a father’s father died.
He wept and walked with his son that night.
As they walked, his son asked, “How do I become a man?”
The father responded, “Follow me to a cross and I’ll show you a Man.”
“Who is he?” the son asked.
“He is the king of kings.”
“How do you know?” the boy questioned.
The father told his son to look up and answered with tears in his eyes, “night sky 
is dark, but there are stars.  Bright orbs of light that mock the night.  And life is 
dark but there is Christ, he quenched the sting of death and brings blind sight.”
“But Why?!” the son demanded.
“There is no why, just what!”
“Believe and know why night can’t stop sun’s light.”
“Believe and know why death can’t sting God’s might.”
“Believe and know why sorrow cannot last and suffering must fade.”
“Believe and know why broken hearts are best, yet hearts of steel can’t rise.”
“In these dark days of doubt and lies.”
“My son, in these dark days of doubt and lies.”
“Just know, night sky is dark but there are stars, bright orbs of light that mock the 
night.”
“And life is dark but there is Christ, he quenched the sting of death and brings 
blind sight.”
“He is the author of truth and craftsman of joy.”
“Confidant to whores yet sovereign master over strife.”
“And soon he’ll come to judge the dead and rule the just.”
“He’ll set things right.”
“But now my son, right now just lift your hands, let his love grab hold, and let 
nothing in this sordid lie of life distract from that embrace.”
“In these dark days of doubt and lies.”
“Believe and know why night can’t stop sun’s light.”
“Believe and know why death can’t sting God’s might”
“He is the author of truth and craftsman of joy.”
“He steals the sting of death and brings blind sight.”
“Confidant to whores yet sovereign master over strife.”
“He is the king of kings, the Christ.”
“Believe on his name, my son, he’ll make you a man.”
“Believe on his name and live forever.”

CROSSING THOSE BRIDGES OF WONDER

The turbid clouds hover mountains
of fluttering maples,spruces and pines
while I am crossing those bridges of wonder,
adjoined by sturdy steel cables
that even an impetuous wind couldn't oscillate;
man's ingenuity outwitting Mother Nature...
a tuneful voice rising from a spirit that perpetuates!

Rageful rivers resent their lament,
as fast currents struggle to find an inlet;
my hard breath surrenders
to an unchallenged fear!
From above danger is like the force of gravity,
I race with a brave face, but the harsh wind 
still whips it with the strength of a twister,
blowing the pristine white sand...
turning it into a whirling dust cloud
only to diminish my visibility!

Let me cross those bridges of wonder,
in spite of lightning and thunder...
I'll brave the fiercest storm,
as long as courage allows me to proceed;
night may come as quickly as frightening thoughts,
but nothing would make my will recede
to a darkness that suppresses the freedom of choice!

When warriors are faced by a threat,
they don't turn back and accept defeat,
no doubt can thwart their plan:
it's either death or glory,
unsurmountable pain or joy;
their ego is hardly broken through dire!
Ah! See them crossing those bridges of wander,
and like me, they rejoice when the battle ends!

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

Spero

Profound, inevitable dreams

Incise through her mind like ripping seams

The hunger in his eyes

Even she feels a glimpse of despise

And everyday she ponders

Was it meant to be? She wonders

The dark nights of thunder and rain

What is it he wants? Her agony her pain?

But she refuses to give up, to cry

He just looks past her holding a wine bottle, dry

Outside is a world so deceiving

Like a poisonous Oleander, so misleading

Her eyes are lifeless, her hands are shaking

He apologizes, but she knows he’s faking

Red, green, black, blue

Life passes her by, in every single hue

A gun lies on her ripened, demeaning thoughts

Her tangled up, brawny knots

She puts her finger on the trigger

When suddenly she sees something marvelous, no; something bigger!

She looks at her little boy’s face

Existence itself is a race

His fragile arms around her neck

Amidst all humanity and wreck

Remains of silence have awoken

Her heart unbolted and had spoken

The last flash of air and light

An elevation of a whole new height

The emotions of regret vanished

However those lost moments of time were spent or rather banished

One more minute, one more hour

Love what you have today with all of your integrity and power

Honor, Forgive, Cherish what matters, before it swiftly turns sour.

My Reflection

While gazing into the mirror

At this woman that I see

I wonder what she is thinking

As she gazes back at me

Her face is so familiar

That one could almost say

She and I are both the same

Yet different in some way

I see it there within her eyes

They speak without a sound

Telling of a life she has lived

A happiness not yet found

She has accepted her life decisions
 
With each she has learned to cope

Realizing now the sadness

It becomes a spark of hope

Chasing away the darkness

Lighting a new direction

I see a tear fall down our cheek

As I smile back at my reflection

Texas Stars

Under the Texas stars,
far away from the cars...
I see them twinkling so bright.

I thought about You and I,
what we said that night...
as I held you tight.

You told Me, You'd be true,
I said I'd never leave You...
under those bright Texas stars.

We are in love,
I'm your man...
and you're my little dove.

I thought about You today,
while making hay...
and know we'll be O.K.

Think I'll see You tonight,
and hold You tight...
under these bright Texas stars.

So I pull on my boots and hat,
can't wait til we chat...
gettin' slick for my gal.

You look like an angel,
dancing the two step...
till the music fades under those Texas stars.

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.

heaven just seems so far away

I hear your word and I know the truth
No fear of death in this unknown place
Sprits going to rise up across the human race
Wise men tell me what to do in my day

Heaven just seems so far today 
Lord come down take me away

Thoughts fill my head bring the once dead to life
Will there be other men of god after me
Want to feed the hungry help the blind see the word
Need to find the answers of the questions of this world

Heaven just seems so far today 
Lord come down take me away

Lord forgive us for all the sin we have had
All the bad it’s so sad but now I’m glad I found the lord
So many lost children never to be found
We are all homeward bound from here

A Judgement Day Trial

A man was brought to stand before Almighty God's throne.
As Satan began to speak the man was silent not even a moan!

Satan said to  Almighty God; "I have seen this man.
Committing every possible sin that he can.
He wallowed in drugs, alcohol and lust.
All the things that bring you disgust!
He's told many lies, and cheated his friends.
His sins are many the list never ends!
He is so guilty and should be given to me.
To burn in Hell for all eternity!"

But then Jesus spoke up and defended the man's case.
"Saying he's washed by My blood receiving mercy and grace!
His sins are forgiven and he is Mine.
His charges are dismissed not even a fine!
I died on his cross making him sin free.
His room is prepared for his eternity with Me!

Then God cast His judgement and said "Satan you're wrong!
Once again you've come here singing that lying song.
This man is Mine and he'll stay here with Me.
Surrounded with our love for all eternity!"

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.....

A STRONG SPIRIT

Be dauntless
and show a strong spirit
when others stand back...
denying their help;
one is never by oneself,
if courage does exists!

Your rivals have gotten the best of everything,
love,luck, joy and prosperity...
and you still don't envy their riches;
while you stride through your battles,
and feel your anger and their mockery...
your judgement is stripped of all reality! 

Be fearless when confronting adversities,
find sense even in the most compelling strides;
others will show their sympathy
when you're stricken by calamity,
and their soothing hugs are as comforting as words...
with courage, not disperation, you'll head
down the promising road
and somehow you'll find your gold!

A toddler crawls before he learns how to walk,
you followed only your past...
causing you to ponder your regret;
tomorrow awaited others, not you,today
you can change your luck and even your destiny...
learn from your mistakes, be ready to fight!

Dare to be different,
with a strong spirit,
among those who seem dissident;
be that someone who reaches out kindly,
who has no fear in his heart...  
when he is treated humanly and fairly!

Indescribable Awakening

People of God why can't you see,
The shining light that sets His believers free.
His mercy is so powerful its shakening,
His love is an indescribable awakening.

Darkness seems to be around,
The light is lost it cant be found.
People are sinning worshiping idols,
When times get tough they wanna give up becoming suicidals.
God is looking down on them shaking his head,
Wondering why these people are turning away making their own bed.
God stays hidden so we can seek Him,
It makes the light shine so instead of drowning we swim.
People of God why can't you see,
The shining light that sets His believers free.
His mercy is so powerful its shakening,
His love is an indescribable awakening.

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.

Fight The Mere Fight

So it begins, A man falls into his reckless sins.
Believes in God, Talks to him everyday.
Little does he know, The pain is sure grow.
Acts of guilt, sorrow and self retreat brings him crumbling down.
God is more than what others think of to him.
He's Almighty, Glorious, Powerful, Freind, Creator, Lord, and Father above all.
Thus he learns everyday what he reads in the Bible to which he takes in at heart, He breaks into tears wanting a new start.
God and his friends are the only ones he can talk to, No one else seems to understand thus making talking about what he wants too to them very difficult. He doesnt know what to do.
With little time and so much weight on his shoulders its hard to see a brighter side, Before he knows it he will lose his pride.
So much negativity is surrounding him where he calls home, He talks to God explains what is going on and awaits a message.
A message so clear only he could hear, Though some cannot stand to wittness any longer.
Repenting God is something he cannot do, He wouldn't stay true.
Hes in a never ending battle with himself on giving up and fighting the mere fight growing stronger under God.
But its a tough battle.
He doubts himself.
Making a stand from living or dying is one he may never break free,
But he knows he's not alone and he suddenly can see.
The burning passion of a light,
WIth it he learns to fight the mere fight.

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

IN THE BIBLE

In the bible there is a story,about a man ,
who brought his people out of slavery
He led them to a promise land,
So all his people could be free.

In the bible there is a story.
 about a man and his family.
Who built an ark in the desert,
and GOD change the desert into a raging sea.

In the bible there is a story
about a man as strong as he could be.
Until he met this girl,DELILAH.
Who brought him tragedy.

In the bible there is a story,
about a man from GALILEE.
Who shed is blood on the cross,
for all of our souls,such as you and me.

Joy

Long Ago,

A seed fell to the earth in the body of a Woman.
Long ago a mustard seed fell to the earth in the body of a Woman.
He was Mercury and Zeus he was Aphrodite and Venus,
And he was the real thing!!
I mean the real thing!
Like coca-cola but better!
And I looked into the face of the seed at one of his worst moments,
And I saw the face of Grace for the first and last time in a life time.
And I looked into the face of the seed at one of his worst moments,
And I saw the face of Grace for the first and last time in a lifetime.
And he took my life and showed me sorrow.
And he took my life and showed me joy.
But now, I tell you, he is showing me peace!  For the root of offence within me is 
no more!
Amen.

Beauty

Beauty is not to fight about
nor to be kept by anyone person,s eyes
It,s seldem even seen.
True beauty is felt,
through the touch of warmth
when it,s cold.
Through being in one,s arms
and feeling totally safe.
Beauty is shared love. the
grip of ones lover squeezing 
you to her when you release her
letting you know she wants you.
Beauty is letting her win when
winning is all that she needs
at that time.Beauty is the light
that shines when she smiles.
listening, caring and giving
her the attention she needs.
Beauty is her shyness, her
anger, her questioning look
after she climaxes
Beauty is being the beast to
keep her the queen.
mad, glad, sad
Beauty is building a foundation 
on trust not lust.
Beauty is her, it,s me it,s us.
when my arms are around her
and she fits right in.
beauty is her hair, her skin
her womanly scent.
beauty is saying by this is it.
knowing it,s confused love running
you crazy, lazy to feel.
Beauty is her letting you back into 
her life.
her sliding up to you soft, warm body,
hot. Beauty is feeling her control over you
and putting her to sleep in your arms
because of it.
For beauty is what you want.Beauty is her
history of survival. where she,s been.
where she,s going
Beauty is her stepping back and listening to her man
being for him when he knows she can,t trust,want trust
but can,t trust.
Beauty is watching her lose control and take control
over and over again winning in the end.
Beauty is your glance that makes me change all thoughts
Beauty is love, it,s respect, it,s honor and trust
it,s harmony.
Beauty is how i see you in the morning when you wakeup
Beauty is you. It,s the lust, the desire that burns
in my soul for you , and how i miss you when you leave
 love you.

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

remembrance

The days of endless dreaming
Joyous afternoons
Endless laughter
Have come to an end
The day I took my last breath

A fragile bridge 
Goes over the glistening water
Where animals of all sorts
Come and gather around
Dazzled by the view 

That is were I unleash my dreams
The secrets no one knows
My most wanted desires
Unforgivable memories
My whole life is spread upon this bridge

I would spend countless nights
Imagining my fairy tale 
Happily ever after that are to come
And princes’ to make me a princess
Having my perfect moments

The last of my time
I was dreaming at night
Looking at the water over the bridge
Closed my eyes to make a wish
Then I fell…

I sunk down to the bottom
Slowly and ever so carefully
Nobody was there to witness
To lend me a hand
As my feet touched the end

My air was shortening
Creating me only a memory
I saw the moonlight shining
Wanted so desperately to reach out and touch it
But I have taken my last breath

My memories that have filled the land
Secrets that only the clouds knew
Desires the water only heard
Flowing in the air 
In remembrance of me

Destiny

We look at what we have this hour of the day,
But where will we be when come what may.
The emblems on the hats and the money for the shoes,
The important pocked tronics
Are these your going tools?
Over priced jeans that are quoted by name,
The fancy cars bought low.
Looking at times like the best there is but,
Lowly thinking even though.
I ask you now with all that you have,
“Is your happiness really there?
If these things are really going to take you,
Can you tell me when and where?”
We have spoiled the child, spared the rod,
And forgot about, “IN THE BEGINNING GOD…”
Boys wanting to know how many babies that can make,
Instead of getting a job for the first one’s sake.
Little girls having boys and watching them rebel,
While thinking that is cute the mother’s aiming them toward HELL.
We have not allowed love to come in but,
Lust has had free course.
The children that are now coming into the world,
Feel all except remorse.
Is your fate in the clothes that are on your back?
Is your strength in the drug that we know as crack?
Are you scaled by the shoes that are on your feet?
Or governed by equipment that is found out in the streets?
You see the Lord has a plan and He knows where you should be
But it’s up to you to seek your “DESTINY”.
Into what are you getting and where are you going,
In whom are you believing and why are you doing.
Everything else is temporal and all is fading away.
Except you find your life in Christ Jesus and,
Be ready for that great day.
This very second as you read these words, chaos is in society,
And even though the LORD ALMIGHTY is still in control,
WHERE IS YOUR DESTINY?

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,

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,

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......

Filled with joy and love

You are never alone........ 
In the Great Hall...........

Savior

Standing on the shores of life
Waves of dreams crashing down over me
Engulfing all that I am…
A salty taste fills my mouth
I gasp for air, 
Suddenly my lungs fill with mixed emotions 
My breath escapes me 
As did the joy I once felt 
Cold and wet I stand alone,
Watching and waiting for you
I stand alone,
Suddenly my pain is at ease
With the sound of your voice 
Thank you for saving me…

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

Marie I-- Covenant To Thee

We're at the seasons' end I won't suffice to their Judgement for We can overcome I'm sorry I couldnt always be what you wanted me to be, My dear Marie But this is my covenant to thee We were born from the same flame you and I Without a shame we can discard the pain compared to our love it is just disdain The passion can not fly away My dear sweet marie This is my covenant to thee You're my escape when i need flee to The other side of the sea My single belief, my dear marie The passion of you and me flies away With the keeper of the bees Nightingales sleep and dream of our Starcossed beams, my sweet marie, It was meant to be This is my covenant to thee

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

Until I'm touched

Poverty striken
starving in the night
history critical to me 
until I lose sight
let me embrace your heart
under starlit engagement 
undisarrayed gorgeous gaze 
holding our love sacred 
through songfelt dismay
charismatic glance 
displayed 
though were in pain
today 
remain humane 
don't judge the Lord
until I'm touched 
love cry no more

The Love I have For Thee

My heart is heavy for the hour
I asked the darkness to lend me loves enduring power
From dawn to dusk I think of thee
Should I pray to he who sits upon that heavenly thrown to set my spirit free

I beg thee
As I sit upon this dusty smoke stained asphalt, to let my heart be
Showering the dark for fear of what the angels may perceive.

Hear me now!
I am not queen of virtues thieves.
What I know is the sorrow love leaves

Touch my lips before you go
So profound that I should beg your puritan soul

He who view the works of evil proudly stands before my world with arms open to 
me
"This is the love of loves, that undying love, that is surely more than any other love 
could be.
This is the love that you have for me, and I for thee."

When the purple shadow creeps upon our parting, will this love that is the 
greatest love of loves still remain to be
Or will the angels cast it in to the voraciousness of the raging sea
Still the moon will capture its sweetness inside of me
Holding my heart with bitter sweet anxiety
Forever its hue remaining as a glowing presence inside of me

Having more than life can offer to the softness or our love we will surely see
"It is the love of loves that grows inside of me
Then the stillness of this love of loves will tear the sureness of what dreams left 
of this love we are straining to be

What is this love we can not let go of for fear of staining our souls with the 
aftermath of its agony
This is the love I have for thee..

IN A MISTY WAY

We could meet again 
In a misty way 
The Wraiths slain 
In a land far away 

In a misty way 
Meet again, one day 
You can not tear apart 
The beauty that lies, 
deep in the heart 

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... 
Lost today 


We could meet again 
In a misty way 
The Wraiths slain 
In a land far away 

In a misty way 
Meet again, one day 
You can not tear apart

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...

THE NEED TO REVEAL MYSELF

The excitement for life
and the gratefulness
to be alive until today,
has made me forget
that  I have to die one day;
and wouldn't it be so incredible
to believe we'll be immortal?
Find that answer in your faith:
the stronger you believe in that,
the less you'll think about death!

The need to reveal myself 
as I perceive things as they appear...
has nothing confusing and clandestine;
if fate is controlled by actions either
bad or good...foolish, wise or undifined:
can we calculate how many days
we have left to live,and can we
foresee and prevent a calamity?

The need to reveal myself
is not a deliberate mockery 
of someone's else belief;
it comes from enlightenment
and a solid trust that is
harder than a rock!

I Am A Woman

I am a woman
A mother, a daughter, a sister
Full of nurture, full of love
Keeping my faith, keeping my strength

I am a woman
A wife and a provider
I raise and love my children
I support and love my husband

My babies are my gifts
I'll protect them with my life
Trying not to show them wrong
Encouraging them to do right

I'll never leave you, can't be without you
My family is my life
How I would lose my mind
If I couldn't kiss them goodnight

I am a woman
My heart full of tender care
I'll lend a helping hand
With strangers I will stand

I am a woman
And my life is a story
The past is present and full of mistakes
Just trying to do my best, everyday

Do unto me as I do unto you
By showing your love faithfully
Don't hurt me cuz I won't hurt you
Just put your trust in me

I need you to be there
Like i'm there for you
I need you to show you care
Like I care for you

I am a woman
Show me some respect
I am your queen, and you my king
So get rid of the rest

I am a woman
Without me, there is no you
Treasure these precious words
Deep down you know it's true

Sisters hear me calling
You are a diamond in the rough
Don't let no one take your pride
Don't let no one set you up

Stand tall and stand proud
Let it all come out
Shout I am woman
Let it flow out your mouth

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

A WARM SUMMER NIGHT

A star lit night 
I met my true love... 
My delight 
On a warm summer night 

We met in a field of Moonflowers 
I took her hand, 
under starlight 
On a warm summer night 

A warm summer night, 
is all I need 
with you... 
Under starlight 

Such love 
with you... 
Under a nightsky 
The stars... 
Passing by 
Such love... 
Is true 

Under a clear Moon showing 
A field of moonflowers 
The colours glowing 

The shooting stars fell 
As did my heart... 
A field of Moonflowers, 
for you and I 
A love did dwell 

On a warm summer night, 
we took each other 
Under a sky, 
full of starbright 
A warm summer delight 
A warm summer lover 

In a field of Moonflowers 
Full of starbright 
We lay back 
and watched the Moons' flight

With a Shout!

With a shout!
At the last trump
The archangel's
Voice shall be heard
For the Lord 
Himself shall come
So encourage
All with these words!  (Chorus)

If we believe that Jesus died
And in three days He rose again
Then we believe that God will bring
With Christ those who now sleep in Him

For if only in this life we have hope in Jesus Christ
We would be the most miserable of men 
But Jesus is the Resurrection and He's the Life
Being buried with Him we shall rise again

(Chorus)

We who are alive and in Jesus still abides
Won't precede those who are asleep in Him 
So the dead in Christ first shall arise  
Then we who remain shall be caught up with them

For we all shall not sleep, but we all shall be changed
Into a being and a likeness of the Lord
When we meet Him face to face in the clouds in the air
We shall be with Him always and evermore

(Chorus)

Simply close your eyes.....

Everytime I close my eyes we kiss
Even though there is an ocean between us 
my mind always seems to find you. 
Sometimes I catch you brushing your teeth or
washing your hair. The times I remember most are 
when I find you starring into the night thinking of me
remembering times we spent together. 
I close my eyes often and share a brief moment in time with you.
For those are the times that drive me. You are the gas and I am the car
Fully loaded with love trying to make it down this bumpy road called life.
I only pray you dont leave me stranded......
But how could you when you need me as I need you~
I close my eyes now and see you sitting there at your desk reading this
thinking of me with an angelic smile across your face. 
You know I wrote this for and about you.........
and for that reason I will always live inside you.
Simply close your eyes.....

THE VALLEY BELOW

I winged my way..... 
Through the night 
When you opened your heart.... 
Opening the vulnerable you.... 
Exposed too 
I saw nothing, but light 

The love opens too.... 
Did I do it right? 
Winging my way through the night 
When I offer all.... 
Will she take it all? 
Will I fall? 

This is how I feel 
The heart ,so full 
Full for you.... 
What can I do? 
but love you 

Did I do it right? 
I lie with you.... 
All through the night.... 
The love to spill, 
my heart, 
beginning to fill, 
fill with light 

To breathe you in.... 
The smell of your hair, 
takes me there 
How long is the night? 
How long can I stay? 
How long can I bear? 
I want you too.... 
Did I do it right?

Can't Cry Anymore

                                  As my life is put on hold
                                  I don't deserve this
                                  That maybe you will miss
                                  Walk away or stay
                                  Is hard in so many ways
                                  I need strength to keep going

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

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

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

THE PRINCE OF THE NORTH

The icy wind blows down........ 
Snow flurries fall from the Princes' Crown 
Inside that wintry glow............ 
Is a heart beating............. 
Wanting love so....... 
Wanting this meeting.......... 

Who can touch the heart? 
Of a prince aloof and cold? 
Which princess? ,the love can hold? 

Steel grey eyes........... 
Hidden sparkle too 
The shyness revealed 
The Prince of the North to take.............. 
The beauty of every snow flake, 
and lay before a princess a gift of love healed....... 
Upon a snowy field 

For ,the Princess gave a gift long ago.......... 
A gift,so bright 
So one day he might............. 
Venture forth from the cold land.......... 
Under the gift so............ 
The gift of the Northern Light, 
and ask for the hand 
of the Faerie Princess........... 

The Faerie Princess, 
and her dancing light 
brought to the North........ 
Something bright...... 
The heart began to melt.............. 
Of the Prince that saw her 
Upon a snowy field 
and his heart did yield

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

Never the Same

His fingers traced the cold hard rock  of a now silent name,
Of a father he knew, a man he would not. No one to take the blame
His childhood changed a man yet to be, he cried for his loss and pain
Through the silence that followed, he walked away,
He’d never be the same.

He would come calling on the ladies, yet whiskey was his date,
Taking his hand, calling his name she numbed his futures fate
With her, soothing, smooth moving liquid she’d guide him through the night
She left him wanting more of her, to change his life insight.
With a cold ring of glass she called to him beckoning him to follow
He had married a bottle of comfort to fill his heart so hollow.
With every swallow, he would hear her call his name,
He tried to drink her into his soul,
He’d never be the same.

In his sorrow of tomorrow and the day that follows that,
He could only weep and borrow, self pity where he sat,
When on the midnight moon he heard a whisper on the breeze,
The bending of guitar strings, like bending of willow trees.
Caressing, addressing, assessing time itself,
Feeling healing, sealing wounds made on ones self.
He became one with the music and to himself wholeness came
As he learned to pick those guitar strings,
He never was the same.

One night a woman sat before him a whisper on her lips,
On a stage in a place that he played for tips
As she listen to his guitar, his sober fingers played
As he strummed another tune, his eyes upon her laid.
As she smiled up at him now his futures fate untold
Lay with in those days as lifes beauty started to unfold.
A year had passed since she first heard him play
Marriage and a chance to live every day
But when his son was born a prayer of thank came
For he folded his hands and bowed his head 
He would never be the same

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

A buttery breaking from a cocoon
Hidden beauty we can only assume
Shining stars with a drop of rain
Smile with mask to hide my inner pain

Bring out the best complete the rest of me

Eyes full of life deep as a well
Your spirit is escape to this lonely hell
Give a kiss to the only one I ever love
Count my blessing thank the lord above

Bring out the best complete the rest of me

Miss the smell of your golden locks of hair
Tell me your secrets give me a reason to care
Share with me your hopes and dreams
Bare your problems in my life

Bring out the best complete the rest of me

Still Transition

Still Transition

Im livin in my own Final Desitination
Still I fail to see clarity through any revelation
Cant stop cause its not called living if your set in hesitation

Fresh out the package breathin in 21 and I still escaped death trice (3)
Figured if I run away from the world karma would start being nice

Always been a christian but always feel short of the hype
Oscar Nomination for my acting 
That held the fear of my tears that are locked inside

I'm human not a hero so my Pride I cant deny
Aside from the fact that i choose my path the straight and narrow
Not strong enough cuz i still feel the pain when pireced by a racial arrow

I have forgotten all sorrow when i reclaimed my soul
Still i believe in the trinity by Gods presence i remain whole
So i will remain who i am not to be moved from where i stand 
Yet constantly rising bound to a still transition

My Sweetest Escape

In my life and times
been betrayed and been lied to
used everything just to get me 
by the nights, that were so cold
just wanted to let go, and fade away
looking for that sweet escape, but
always thinking maybe im to late.

And ive done things that im not proud of
no im far from an angel, but did i really deserve
those i cared for to let me down again?
What's so wrong with wanting a family?
They just wanted to break me through to 
the skin. Leave me here just like the animal
you treated me like to begin with. 
Seems like this might be my fate.

All my life i always wanted to feel the sweetest escape
in the arms of someone who would look me in the face
Someone who would understand that my plan
was to get away from this place.
All my life i always wanted to feel the sweetest escape
in the arms of someone who could look me in the face
Someone who would understand that where i am
bad memories are hard to erase.
All i need is your Sweetest Escape.

People used to break me down, not with
fists but with there words
till i was lying ill, fatally bleeding 
unto the floor.
But as soon as you entered my life
everything changed, and nothing
felt painful anymore. As you took my
hand, and led me out of darknesses
door.

And with you there's finally hope
a new place i know i can cope
and be here, not scared of being
pushed back down, broken down
to my core.
And i know you'd never hurt me
because i know that's just not you
In the darkness i just couldn't see
until the love you shined led me
right to you.

All my life i always wanted to feel the sweetest escape
in the arms of someone who would look me in the face
Someone who would understand that my plan
was to get away from this place.
All my life i always wanted to feel the sweetest escape
in the arms of someone who could look me in the face
Someone who would understand that where i am
bad memories are hard to erase.
All i need is your Sweetest Escape.

My Understanding

A criminal mind is a critical accusation
A jared passion is an amintined arguement
A mad-man is a crutial saddness
A blind man is unseen pain
A def man is a unheared voice
A cripppled man is angery in full of selfishness
A plauged man is selfless sufferee and greedy
A  guilty man is shamed in driven
An innocent man is envius in lost
A darkman is suculante in mercy
A light man is devius in his ways
The moon has no equal
The sun has no rights

A HEARTSTONE CHRISTMAS EVE

In the Great Hall
A gem glowed
Softly
Within its' heart
Much love flowed
 
So many....
Have come so far...
On Christmas Eve
On a clear night
By the light of the stars
 
A trail lit by stars
That swirled above
That swirled below
Soft light
Faerie love
Faerie glow
 
The turrets and spires
Pierced the night sky
Reflected light
Of stars
Of Faeries
Of love
For you and I
 
It was Christmas Eve
At Castle Heartstone
The soft light
That lay in your heart
That lay in a gem
Glowed
Let the magic weave
Love and stars
On this night

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!

THE WEST WIND PRINCE

Far in the West, 
over the blue sea 
Was the home of the West Wind Prince 
Who's crown, the colour of sunset 
The colour you would agree, 
The most beautiful since......... 
The Tapestries had been blessed 

The soft brown hair, 
with a crown , 
The colour of sunset 
This Princes' eyes........... 
The blue before the sun going down 

The wind so cool, 
The wind so strong........ 
The West Wind Prince............ 
Sailing along. 

Fresh and sweet 
This wind.......... 
This Prince...... 
The Princess he would like to wed 
The West Wind to the castle it led 

For the Kingdom of the West 
The Sunset Crown 
Worn when the earthlight goes down 
Such light! 
The West Wind Prince yearns for the light 

For the Sunset Crown........ 
So bright! 
Needs a Princess........... 
To stop the light going down, 
by being by his side 
The starlight 
To illuminate the night, 
when the sun does hide 

To the Great Hall, 
onwards he sped 
The Princess of Stars......... 
He wished to wed 
The wind cool and strong 
The Princes' heart to fall 
The Princes' heart did belong

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

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, 
sparkling too

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

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..

What is a wife

A wife is a woman, loving and true,
A wife is a woman, that woman is you.

A wife is so special, so take care of her,
A wife is so special, for she’s always there.

A wife will support you, in all that you do.
A wife will support you, your whole life through.

You are my wife, and I’m happy to say,
That I love you more, with each passing day.

I Love you Marie

Take my hand and we’ll go far away
Wherever the night takes me, I’ll stay
As long as you still love me till the end day and night

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 Whispering Trees 
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

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........... 
The magic to keep

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

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 
Eagles cry, piercing

ARIZONA SKY

The stars shone bright... 
under an Arizona sky 
Mesas of red rock stood still, 
bathed in reflected light 

Winds blew, 
winding their way through.... 
Towers of rock.... 
Sighing too 

An opalescent moon rose.... 
In an Arizona sky... 
In a land , the stars chose.... 
For you and I 
Shooting stars fell.. 
Upon monument valley 
Silent whisper of wind 
The red rock stood still 
What they could tell.... 
In the evenings' chill 

Spears of rock, 
pointed to an Arizona sky 
Held up a roof of stars..... 
Watched them pass by 

The red rock grew... 
Right up into the deep blue 
The colour.... 
Like deep red wine.... 
the arizona sky... 
stars too, 
became mine

Surf and coral, 
hitting the shore 

This underwater show 
This blaze of colour,

Coral reef home,

Living breathing jewel,

Crashing of sea,

I want this to be my home 
Mighty blue sea

Rush of water,

Small fish dart 
Multicoloured streaks,

Deep down,

Sun,so bright

Sealed in blue,

Sealed in sea of blue, 
underwater paradise 
Dive with me too 

This brief escape, 
weightless in coral sea 
This magnificent waterscape, 
brilliant green  underwater leaf

Electric blue fish dart about 
other creatures, 
their colour does shout 
Ceasless flow, 
upon this reef 
Coral sea, 
let us go below 
for, we love it so 

Pink and green, 
purple and red 
the brightest you have ever seen

This reef encircles me, 
crown of coral 
Sealed by blue sea 
Here lies the moral, 
Neptunes' son...... you see

Turn the page.

My heart races as time runs by too quick to notice standing still is I,
warmed by the days burden full from the nights closing curtain,
pen to paper my thoughts take over scribbles lines phrases on the paper they cover,
flashes of a time of a place far away searching for lines that still hide from the day,
inside roams a child within outside a cast of some one he calls a friend,
miss spelled thoughts for thats how I see it in my head,jumbled words always misread,
a laugh from he who is within a laugh for today he knows it was a sin,
the heart scared from a lesson learned long ago in many words it shows,
yet the bitter taste in my mouth isn't remorse suppressed anger are a pity party of doubt,
its the mornings coffee, the rest I let it all go years before now I just write to set it
free,
for it's not what I'm going through but how I made it through,
look at the faces that fill the streets inside of them are poems words phrases they keep,
some times you can't make on your own and they don't know we don't have to go it alone
stop...look around you...your not alone...let it go...your not the only one 
smile and some one will smile back at you lend a hand know now where you stand,
the past is there to show how we aged the present is before us lets turn the page,
we all lived life's we never chose but how we are now is our choice this we must know,
get over it move on stop ...theres so much time to change... your life this moment is for not,
you are...two  words easy enough to say ...the words that come after... are for you to
display,
I am some one, I am..., how would you finish it?what words fit?I am...
this is just a moment in our lives a moment to remember are forget moments in our eyes,
this write is just that words I wanted to say lines I wanted to display,
not looking for nothing in return I just wanted to write and now this page I will turn.

THE SOUTH WIND PRINCE

Soft golden hair, 
the wind, so fine 
The sun does always shine, 
on a Prince, so fine 

Soft blow , 
through cupped hands 
The warm wind, 
spreads it's light 
through the lands 

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, 
a delight

Because You Touched Me

LORD, I am weak but not unable to perceive I am nothing.
      I have no strength beside thee, I burden myself with heavier loads 
and everyday it seems I fall further and further from thy Grace, but, 
You carry me through. All I need is You everyday,
                                 Because You touched me!

LORD, I have failed thee, I follow my heart and fall real deep.
      My heart alone is fragile, deceitful, and weak and I cannot trust it,
it seems I can't find my way around in this valley of fog, but,
You stand always with me and together we walk hand in hand,
                                  Because You touched me!

LORD, You rescued and saved my dyeing heart that I could not save.
      You are my only source of light, You open my eyes to see the truth before me.
You've given me Your steady heart to trust while my world churns on this
pilgrim journey. You shed Your light on every path, right and left,
                                   Because You touched me!

LORD, I look within as if to hide me, but see only darkness inside me.
      I have nothing to offer thee, for all I have is thine, today is another day,
clouds will block my view but Your Grace and Love shines right through.
Just one more day and I shall enter into Your rest,
                                  Because You touched me!

DREAMY SOFT LIGHT

This ethereal glow, 
I feel on my face 
and deep in my heart so 

This soft light, 
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

Deep in summer wood 
where beauty grows 
This garden, 
home of the bramble rose 

This high wall 
bordered in pink

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

SO SOFT, THE NIGHT FELL

SO SOFT, THE NIGHT FELL 

So soft, the night fell, 
I missed twilight 
A canopy of stars, 
upon my head did dwell 

Glorious night!, 
welcomed me 
Such stars! 
Such moonlight! 

The moon rose high, 
such quiet beauty 
I tracked its' passage 
in a star laden sky 

There is more here... 
Than  the eye can follow 
Than the eye can see 

So softly, did the night fall, 
a sunset passed 
Night and day never last 
The moon,the stars... 
Held me in awe

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

ASK FOR AN ABUNDANT HARVEST

Prayers are answered by choice or creed...
if faith is stronger than belief;
put that glimpse of imagination to work,
and simply believe in yourself:
it will come to pass while you're awake, 
because determination leads everyone to believe!

Ask for an abundant harvest,
and be specific in your request;
and if it is earnest and motivated...
your wish will be granted!

Look out to the lulling grain and corn fields,
someone has planted their seeds...
soon to be sawed in an abundant harvest;
no one but God has the power to bless!

This truth was egoistically hidden from me,
hypocrites and deceivers told me otherswise:
to try my luck in gambling and giving money away;
what grief and disappointment I accrued from their lies!

Ask for an abundant harvest,
knowing that everything given
won't ever be forsaken;
but don't let folly make you one of the least!

Curse is equal to deserved pain,
because it has the same result,
and guilt is even greater than sin;
consider all before you answer your call! 

Ask for an abundant harvest,
with hands and eyes lifted up;
He will hear you...though you speak in a whisper:
distance won't stop God from opening His door!

THE BIRDS OF HEARTSTONE

As the geese flew north
The honking cries
Could be heard
In clear Autumn skies

Winter came
Blustery snow fell
During the night
Robin redbreasts and  Castle Sparrows
Could be heard
At first light

The King of Air
Fed all the birds at the Castle
During the day, 
He took food
Down to the forest
Beautiful as winter can be
Food was spare
The King made  sure
No bird, would go hungry

Castle Sparrows
Fluttered here and there
Earning their keep,
by picking up all sorts of things
The Castle was tidy,
as wished by the King of Air

Robins, strutted around
Puffing out their red  feathers
Amusing all who took walks
In the castle grounds

Winter began to thaw
The birds of spring
Called out joyously
Birds could be seen
Everywhere
Amongst the fresh green 

Birds of every colour
Took to the air
Flew amongst the Whispering Trees
You could hear birds singing
Everywhere

Heartstone Eagles
Circled high
Above a castle
Traversing the mountain
Daily patrols
Watching all of the sky

In a Flash!

In a flash-! Before you can blink an eye
In a flash-! Before you can say good-bye
With a blast-!  Of his horn at the Midnight Cry
He will catch-! Us away up in the sky   (Chorus)

When the saints are all caught away
For some it will dawn, for some, midday
For others it will be evening, for some, night
But for all of us who are walking in the Light
It should not be a terrible great surprise
Like those who will mourn with open eyes
Since we expect Him, we must watch and pray
And haste Christ's great and glorious Day

(Chorus)

Some of us who are Heaven bound
Will be above and some underground
Some will be in the sky, some in the sea
And who knows where others may or may not be
But one thing's for sure, make Christ your choice
For all of us who will hear His voice
Shall be changed, first, the sleep shall awaken
They shall fly, then we who are ready shall be taken

In a flash-! Before you can blink an eye
In a flash-! Before you can say good-bye
With a blast-!  Of his horn at the Midnight Cry
He will catch-! Us away up in the sky   (Chorus)

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

Look for The Light

Walked out this morning
And couldn’t help but see
The sky blackest of black
Everything seemed lifeless
Yet years down the road
This lesson would be priceless
Before now it had seemed
This country was frightless

There is no sign of the sun
Not even a ray of light
So many just stood there

Mesmerized by the sight

Vast numbers of people
Thought the moment
Had come once at last
Where this world disappears
Into one mighty blast

Draining life
All would be dead
Even whether we put up a fight
Many predicted 
This time would come

Yet many failed to notice
The beauty of the sun
People had forgotten
What life was about,
Now panic stricken
They uncontrollably shout
Words of meaning
Far below none
Yet they still not notice
The power of the sun


In the deepest

The darkest
The lowest of times
 One must believe 
          The sun WILL shine	

For in the darkest of moments
There is light somewhere
Just so long as your emotions 
Don’t run into despair


There is no such existence
Of this so called future called fate
For your future is only
That which you make


So if you have fallen 
Into a lightless inferno
Just use sheer will power
The light is destined to show

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

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

Hammer to the Nail

You of all people pass judgment on me 
Look through my eyes and see what I see 
Start picking up what I'm putting down 
Brush yourself off, plant your feet back on the ground 
As long as you keep trying and don't quit, you can never fail 
It's a simple rule it's the hammer to the nail 
Don't always follow like a bunch of lost sheep 
You can dig yourself out, no matter how deep 
Be a front runner, pave the way 
Keep your dreams intact, don't let them go astray 
If you fall off the beaten path, just blaze a new trail 
It's a simple rule, it's the hammer to the nail 
Greet each day with a warming embrace 
Neve believe the old cliche, right time, right place 
You have the strongest influence on your own destiny 
You have to work at it, nothing great comes easy 
Be tougher than life, sometimes it puts you through hell 
It's a simple rule, it's the hammer to the nail

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

SUNS' GLOW

A Dawn to remember
A suns’ soft glow
Rising in the east
A colour flow
Tracking west

Pushed the night

A suns’ glow
Upon the ocean
That touched
A Shadowfire
A colour flow

ONCE UPON A TIME

When seas shone blue
Skies glowed
Faeries flew
Magical things showed

If you could only see
And touch
All of the blue
That I found in you
You would know
What makes me

And you can….
For you know
That seas, shine bright
When together
Such things flow
Of eagle
Of feather

Once upon a time
When seas shone blue
We sailed
In to sunsets
Sunrises
My love for you
Like colour
Felt through

When we are apart
Colours fade
Seas, turned gunmetal grey
I felt your heart
Colours made
When I see you 
today

REMEMBER ME....

Remember me...
When I have gone
For, I have nothing left
Except a memory
 
Remember me...
When I smiled
Stay a while...
Life is so short
Passing by
 
Tears cannot be shed
Remember me...
Instead
 
You have to let me go
Remember me...
It will help you grow
 
One day...
We will see each other again
Never, will you see the pain
That I kept at bay
 
Remember me...
When I have gone
Gently into the night
Lifting into the light
 
Remember me...
In soft golden light
I travel on the wings,
of an angels' flight

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”

DREAMS OF HORSES

A wind soft and light
Blew on a field
Full of horses
Full of dreams

I could hear
A soft whinny
I could feel
A soft whinny in me

Like the wind
Soft and light
The tracks of hooves
The tracks of fun

A wind, soft and light
Blew on me
Dreams of horses
A soft whinny
Of delight

Clouds
Blew across
A sky
A field
Full of horses
Full of dreams

Full of horses
Full of dreams
and wished too
To have a soft whinny
In me
Like I saw
Like  I felt

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

FOR MY FATHER

I flew today 
with my father 
long gone 
Yet... 
We flew 
It was his birthday 

The sixteenth, 
it is only another day 
He taught me so much, 
in little ways as such 
A fathers' way 

DC-8s never die 
they always fly 
here, there, 
in blue sky 

The small ways, 
are what I am today 
Such gentleness 
I owe to my mother 
My endurance 
To my father.. 
For, I am 
A mixture of my parents way 

The love of wings, 
an inherited thing 
Eleven years ago, 
another time 
Long ago 
Such things, 
I have come to know

A Hummingbird
Of iridescent blue
Darted back and forth
In a garden

For, in the walled garden
Flashing blue and green

Hummingbirds are to be seen

Such beauty
That lies in a magical world
For, whirring wings
Iridescence
Flashing green and blue
Lies in you

Such colours
Amongst the flowers
Melted the heart
A Hummingbirds' flight
A joy to see
I sat upon the wooden seat
Wished you were here

I am a hot stepper can't nobody hold me down so set me free
Everbody  Jam Jam upon sugar hill

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

For your going to fly now

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

Fragrance to seep 
A tongue 
Piercing you deep 

In the heat of the night

The story of the song

The wind can sing
I have heard it so
Mournful
Happily
Sighing

Such winds
Can steal hearts
Fill them with song
Soft and warm
Caramel sweet

It was on a such an air
That I heard the sweetest singing
Floating on the breeze
On a day so fair

Soft lilting tones
Made its’ way
Through forests
In to my heart
Where it came to stay

The song
Comes back to me
For, I let it
In to my heart
I let it free

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 
finding me, 

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............... 
part of me............

Life Goes On

LIfe Goes On isn't long nor short but  just right
Life can be called on anytime
God has been good to us
He gave us life to live
Things to be thankful for
So this is just the beginning
So just enjoy life while you can
Because you can die
today, tomorrow, or anytime
because when you die 
Theres no more turning back
because life is full of ups and downs
that comes and goes
Life Goes On

I pray that all people on earth
goes to Heaven
Thanks to God he wakes us every morning
and we should thank him for that 
While we are awake today
Others are dying
One day one of them could be you or me
So that's why never live a lie
Always ask for forgiveness
Because its never too late for anything
Before there is too late
Life Goes On
And doesn't it goes by fast

Where Is He?

In the book of Matthew for everyone to see
It asks a very clear question, Where Is He?
Who are they talking about? Who could they mean?
They're referring to Jesus Christ, the new born king

There were  three men from far away kingdoms 
known as The Magi
They had come to acknowledge The Son of Man
thus fulfilling the prophecy
Guided by a bright star
on the eastern horizon
They travelled far to see the One that God
said to keep their eyes on
Born in a manger to the carpenter Joseph and the Virgin Mary
The Holy Spirit in the flesh,God's prodigy 
Laying in a bed of hay
He was sent  to show us The Way

We've forgotten what the day Christmas truly represents
It's not about gadgets, new clothes nor expensive presents
It's not about I-pods, plasma TVs or the new X-box toy
It's the day to celebrate the birth of our Savior the Deliverer of our Joy
We can't seem to remember that Jesus was sent by God from above
To deliver us and redeem us with the sacrifice of His blood
That was on the crown and the cross for all the people to see
But the one unanswered question remains
Where Is He?

The Jews betrayed Him, the Romans flayed Him
they kicked Him to the curb
They could not discern that He was God in the flesh
and His flesh was the Word
They tried to corrupt Him, then interrupt Him 
when all He wanted was to show them God's Kind
But the passion in Him had subsided because of their closed minds

Where Is He, the one we now need the most?
Where Is He, that manifestation of the Holy Ghost?
He's not at Macy's, He's not at Target, 
you can't reach Him on a Chocolate cell phone
Would you greet Him or mistreat Him
the heir to the heavenly throne?
If you were to see Him, could you perceive Him
as being the most important gift
that God had sent to us,
so our hope and spirits would lift? 

Where Is He, God's only begotten Son,
the child in the manger, the new born king, the Anointed One?
Many now believe Him, many now receive Him
that miracle maker from long ago
Our Messiah, Our Salvation the One we all should know

NAMES

There are names
Of which
People know by fame

Also there are names
Shouted out in shame

Yet one should realize
That ones name
Only with their decisions
Will be known in fame
Living throughout the ages
Through generations with different stages
Only when one discovers the secret
Then they shall be fame treated

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

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...

FOREST WALK

Soft green leaves murmur to me 
Lush grass beneath my bare feet 
Sun on my shoulders 

Tall trees,mighty boughs 
Birds calling softly 

Sun,filtering through trees 
produce multitude hues of green 

Soft dappled light 
Cool of shade 

Shadows of green 
Welcome me 
Leaves rustle 
Nature's bustle 

I feel so alive in this verdant place 
Cool grass beneath my feet 
Hand on tree 
Soft wind in my face 

Butterflies dart around me 
iridescent blue wings 
Time to sit by shady tree 
And enjoy these wonderful things

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

T'was the Night Before...

T'was the night before Christmas,
Satan feelin' kind'a blue,
Cooked up a devilish plot...
To repay me and you...
For all this religious fervor,
And holiday joy....
Annoyed him like hell,
He would take every toy!
Inspired by the Grinch,
I'd guess...
He'd make this Christmas,
An unholy mess...
So he dressed the part,
In flaming red suit ill fitted,
His tail he could not hide,
In that he was outwitted...
With Santanic glee,
He set on his course,
To repay this cruel world,
With tons of remorse...
His raindeer substitutes,
Many demons in pain...
Would haul his fat arse..
No matter the strain...
With a magic bag to steal all the toys,
It you could never fill,
Toys just disappeared
To make cry girls and boys...
Well he struggled down,
The first chimney, you see,
Attracted by its fire,
Not by how it'd used to be...
He bristled with
Santanic Claws,
Designed to give,
Anyone pause...
Chucklin' sardonically,
As he did descend...
He'd even steal their stockings,
Which perhaps he could mend...
And someday soon after,
Sell them at a flea market,
Being sure to infest them with fleas,
While attached to an electric socket....
Would be just his luck,
On that first he was greeted
With a big-eyed little girl,
Her prays did seem answered,
She was quietly seated...
"Oh, dear Santa she cried,
I've cookies for you,
And milk cause I heard,
You loved that stuff too!"
He eyed her with anger,
A craw in his throat,
His plan now seemed
hopeless...
His goal would not float...
Countless children, he gruffed,
To defend their own home?
The weapon of innocence...
Their's all alone...
He turned and he roared,
Up the chimney in a snit,
And that was the last time,
That a child did outwit,
This king of all evil,
And doer of deeds,
Unspeakable for ages,
To all races and creeds...
So if you want,
your Christmas toys,
Alert and count on,
Your little girls and boys...",

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

Who is Our Life

When Christ, who is our Life, shall appear
We'll be caught up~! To meet Him in the air
And our glory hid in God with Jesus Christ
Shall be revealed when we appear 
With Him in Eternal Life  (Chorus)

Some people say they got the life
And they think they have a better way
But the truth about their lusts and pride
Is with the using they all pass away

[Bridge]
Yet they think it's strange that we don't run
To do the same excess they consider fun
And when ridiculed for the sake of His Name
Compared to Glory, it's nothing- take the shame

(Chorus)

The world tells us to get a life
And that we live a narrow-minded way
But the truth we know will cause such strife
Because they're blind & deaf to what we say

[BridgeII]
But the Gospel won't be hid or overcome
For then it would be concealed from the lost ones
But if we suffer insults for the name of Christ
Remember in Him are all the meanings of Life

(Chorus)

{Channel}
And when the sign of the Son appears in the sky
Then all the nations of the earth will begin to cry
For they will see Him come with power and glory from above
And see us in the clouds with Him they've spoken evil of

[Bridge]

When Christ, who is our Life, shall appear
We'll be caught up~! To meet Him in the air
And our glory hid in God with Jesus Christ
Shall be revealed when we appear 
With Him in Eternal Life  (Chorus)

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

THE WATER KING

The molten rock came to the surface
The King of Water
Covered the rock in the sea
Rock exploded
Threw themselves high
Huge trails littered the sky
Of rock that cooled and hissed

Soon the seas
Surrounded the rock
The endless battering
Made beaches
Made mountains
Chasms
Gorges
The Fire King forges
The Water King , cools

Soon the seas
So barren
Would be filled
With gifts from the Earth King
For fish in their multitudes
Inhabited a world of swimming

The King of Water
Explored the depths
Of the sea
Of the meaning
It became  the dreaming

For on the sea,
and under it
Dreams are made
For you
For me

When the earth settled and laid
Fresh water lakes filled
The cracks in the rock
That the Fire King made

The water gave life
To everything
The fish
The animals
To Heartstone
The dreaming

Such consciousness
Became the Stream of Sighs
For water is alive
It lives within us all

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

EAGLE

Mountain ,forest and stream..... 
I can dream 

I fly over them all, 
hear my call......... 
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!

A dark day

A dark day

Sometimes….
Nothing stays the same
Where ever you turn
The wind
And its’ song
Can never return

A dark day
When ever
The wind  hushed down
For nature knows
When to leave
Such dark things
To let them go away

When all is lost
Or so it seems
A dark day
Will never stay
A soft golden sun
Will burn off the frost

Sometimes….
Nothing stays the same
Where ever you turn
The wind
And its’ song
Can never return

And so it was
In an Eagles’ land
Such things spurned
A few feathers fell
No matter
A Shadowfire
In his heart did dwell

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

Shadow Spires

Shadow Spires

The long shadows
Crept across the garden
Dusk fell
Swiftly

The long shadows
Bony fingers
Pointing to the sky
Climbed upwards

The cool of evening
Reached down
In a blaze of starlight
In a Shadow…..
Of Spires

Soft edged
Midnight blue
The shadows of the night
Crept through

Soon all that was left
Were Shadow Spires
Reaching in to the night sky
A Castle hidden….
From you and I

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 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

Life in my eyes.

   Look deep into my eyes and see what I found,
Look at my smile it's life's and undefind, untouched, and experienced.
  My demeanor....the way I walk and talk it's life's up's and down's,
A story stored, memorries harnessed, pain subsided, not unexperienced.
  To you I smile for I know not, for me I smile for I untied life's knot,

I seen life flourish, I seen life fade,I have seen life tarnish in a look.
  I've witness a life gone,I've witness life emergance, I witnessed a life so strong,
I remember my mom's last breath, I remember my kids first breath they took.
  I saw a life taken, I saw a life end, I saw a life stop like a sad love song.
  To you it's for not, to me it's what my eyes sought.

I felt life's heart aches, felt life's rain, but above all I felt my life break,
  Life in a bottle, life in a nut shell, life's begaining and life's end,
I've seen, witnessed, felt, remembered all at steak.
  I live for life raised me to see, fill, cherish and bend.
To you, it's just another breath, to me I now it's all mine till death.

So sing your sad story of pain, pity, remorse, teachings that should be untold,
  Frown, wine, speake of all you heardships blame it all on life,
Close your eyes to what's before you look away from what life beholds.
  I'll live, love, smile for we all hurt at one point and time it's sacrifice.
Live life's breath, live, love and just be, till death.

THIS MYSTICAL YOU

This mystical you

This slender silver thread

These feelings read

Opening up the power

Instinctively knowing

Slender silver thread

my opened heart case 
Delicate silver thread 
My thoughts read, 
by mystical you

He Stooped Down

He stooped down
And made me
He stooped down
And raised me
He stooped down 
And helped me along, along-

He stooped down
And saved me
He stooped down
And raised me
He stooped down 
And helped me be strong, be strong- (Chorus)

He stooped down...

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....

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

Life's toll.

He sits as man so tiered and true 
  -life's moments turned him blue,
the weight of his world sits still on his shoulders,
  -while his hands blister as he gets older,
a fight he's been fighting for years,
 -has taken it's toll you can see it in his tears,
our day will come he's tired of saying,
 -as he august the weight once again,
to his feet I'm sure he will rise,
 -this old dog never says die,
this moment like all the others will pass,
 -he'll do it all again with a laugh,
all it is, is all there is,
 -this mans burden is mine not his.

MAGICK!

Depths of imagination, 
sometimes dark 
The desire inside 
Internal trick............ 
Magick! 

Coursing through 
Hot and wet........... 
You feel it too 
Don't slip this net! 

Sex tingles 
Shiver mingles 
Hidden depth 
Heart leapt 

Fiery heat.......... 
Tastes so sweet! 
Fiery lick............ 
Magick! 

This erotica.......... 
wrist flick 
This exotica.......... 
Magick! 

Wicked ways 
Nightly plays 
Wicked tricks 
Night magicks

Wicked me 
Wicked you 
Coursing through

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

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

Keeps Me Sangin'

Jesus keeps me sangin'-!

I sing cause I'm happy, my heart's melody
I cause I'm free, yes, I know that I am free indeed
His eye's on the sparrow; I know He watches me
And that keeps me sangin'
He keeps me sangin'
Jesus keeps me sangin'-!  (Chorus)

I thought that I would never find someone so patient and so kind
Who had love that was just for me
Until Jesus came my way, He still sticks close to me today
So unconditionally

(Bridge 1)
He's always with me, never leaves nor forsakes me
And Jesus is the one thing my heart is sure of
So I-
(Chorus)

Jesus is my Lord and God and His love is shed abroad
In my heart I do believe
And with my mouth I do confess and I am saved, His righteousness
Is so heavenly

(Bridge 2)
He forgives and forgets all my sins and my debts
And Jesus is the one thing that my heart is sure of
So I-
(Chorus)

Now I need, and you need, and we all need His kind of love (2x's)
 
He forgives and forgets all my sins and my debts
And Jesus is the one thing my heart is sure of

So I- sing cause I'm happy, my heart's melody
I cause I'm free, yes, I know that I am free indeed
His eye's on the sparrow; I know He watches me
And that keeps me sangin'
He keeps me sangin'
Jesus keeps me sangin'-!  (Chorus)

I sing for joy inside my soul
Cause Jesus Christ has made me whole
His joy's my strength that makes me glad
And He's the best love I've ever had

(Fade with the Chorus)

THE WRITER'S INSPIRATION

The glossy lamp-posts,
like the tremulous stars and awakening stars,
light up one by one with a click;
and with incredible manifestation
they announce a spectacular sunset
to impatient and eager lovers...
lost in profound contemplation,
feeling the urge of improvisation!
Serenity descends on the white crushing waves...
to conceal the ablaze horizon with indignation;
will this splendor incite the writer's inspiration,
whose simple words, with elaborate insight,
can console the painters' hearts
when they lack inner inspiration?
Already the conspiring fire-flies seem frantic,
they cautiously search the grass by the tall pine-tree:
to plan a night of mystery,
and to adorn the fragrant air with magic!
There are no lush hills or
snow-capped mountains
to ward off the unpredictable ocean,
or the unguarded sky so prone to invasion;
a sky that harbored the cowards' madness!
They came forward, with full force,
to bring down the impressive Twin Towers;
symble of wealth, of power...
of brother-hood and unity!
They came to kill with hideous minds...
to destroy thousands of innocent lives:
but our selfless,fallen heroes
have made us stronger,
and we are still free!
Even when the weather is unkind
and helpless flowers are swept away by a gelid wind,
snow and rain still embellish, with fine decor,
Manhattan's magnificent sky-line;
and Lady Liberty,weeping,
still welcomes to her thriving shore:
the freedom-seeker and the dream-maker...
so immensely grateful and widly smiling!
The spectacular sky-crapers
can hardly breathe
among those limited spaces;
ask the laborious builders
with sun-tanned faces!
They were the ones fighting off sweat and heat'
waiting to behold,with pride
and rewarding hard-ship,
their ingenious work before the applauding
and cheerful elite!
With beauty and gloominess around,
to spark the writer's inspiration,
this unsteady hand jots down
vague words swerving on the straight lines,
to conceive his defination,
which one day will be repudiated with disguise
by literati's own interpretation!

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

THE TOUCH

Tears well
heart tight in chest,
is this for the best?

Parting is always hard
hard on heart
hard on spirit
hard on body

such lonliness
hand outstretched
grasp of air

nobody there
millions of people
but no one there

The sense of finger on cheek,
eyes beginning to leak
no one there as such,
but you can feel.....................
The Touch

Warm,inviting,
deep heart rising
touch of heart
touch of spirit
touch of body

Touch,the best sense of all!
makes the heart,spirit and body freefall!

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

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
and humility

FOREST FAERIES

Deep in forests of richest green
Faeries looked after trees
Seeds and nuts were collected 

broken branches repaired
Such Forest Faeries were rarely seen

For trees have magic
Faeries too
In green clouds of forest leaf
They took on every hue

As seasons changed
The Faerie colours changed too
For trees loved Faeries
And Faeries loved trees

The gentle swaying of branches
In a wind so light
In a land of summer bright
Deepest green
Tempered with golden sun
You cannot see
Where Faeries have been

When a branch breaks on a tree
Sit quietly
For a Faerie will come
And set it right

When night falls
In a Heartstone forest
Dozens of tiny lights
Begin their dance

Throughout the Magic Trees
At night
Faeries fly
If you listen carefully
If the wind is just right
You can hear Faerie song

IN A HEARTSTONE FOREST

Beautiful trees
Given to a castle
Timber
Magicked by Faeries
Doors and eaves
Alive with thoughts
Of Whispering Trees

A Heartstone tree
So special
To give its' self
In so many ways
For you to see

In forests, so magical
Beautiful trees
Grow
Scented bark
Golden leaves
Live in your heart so

A walk amongst the trees
Leaves rustle
Trees, whisper
Small creatures, bustle

To walk hand in hand
With you
Amongst the trees
I feel so much love too

There is no season
For all have their special beauty
Winter, crowned a tree in snow
Spring, the softest budding green
Summer, clothed in full leaf
Autumn, in its' dying splendour

All the changes 
You could see
You saw it all
With me

A KINGS' EAGLE

A day so calm
The great expanse
Of sky
Of blue

The King stood on the parapet
Surveying the great expanse
Of sky
Of blue

A hand outstretched
In to the blue
The swish of feathers
Form a Shadowfire Eagle
Could be heard
As he circled the King

The soul knew
Of feathers
Of sky
Of blue

A Kings’ Eagle
Flew
Feathers alight
With gold from the sun

Circling high
An Eagle at one
With a King
In a sky
Of blue

A WOKEN HEART

Such things remain unseen 
They lie deep in my heart 
So deep 
You cannot find, 
find what I mean 

Such things, 
have no colour 
They lie behind a darkened door 
This is what sorrow is for 

Such things remain unseen 
They lie deep in my heart 
So deep 
You cannot find, 
find where I have been 

For you to see, 
a woken heart 
Coming from me 

A woken heart 
A woken dream 
I felt the same in you 
It must have been true

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

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

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

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

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

The Lord had a plan for me 
I didn't work alone you see........ 
I drew deep inside

For, in his care 
He never let me out of his sight 
The day he looked after my wife 
The day she went under the knife 

I drew deep,

This  emotion welling 
The story I am telling 

Things will be okay.... 
His hand............ 
On my shoulder 
Was always there 
My soul to bear............. 
On this day

For,he looked after my wife.......... 
Gave back her life 

I drew deep,

For, the times I had 
When things were bad 
He knew I tried

I never left his care 
Two sets of foot prints 
I knew he was there

A DAUGHTER OF LIGHT

Born under a starry night.... 
This I must tell.. 
The night, the star fell.......... 
Sent a daughter of light

A daughter of light,

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

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

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!

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

A STOLEN HEART

Black shadows passed through trees
Passed through stone walls
Crept up galleries and halls
A gem to take
A gem to seize
 
The Shadowfire
For, the gem does possess,
strength and conscience
These are the things the Ice King desires
 
A stolen heart
held in the cold hand of the Ice King
Will make him strong again
To kill and maim
Revenge for all that were slain
 
A heart must be given freely
You cannot steal these things
For then....
They have no love
No meanings
 
The Wraiths gathered up the Shadowfire
In the depths of winter
In the bitterest cold
A gem to restore strength
To make them bold
 
Slipping through the lock and hasp
The Shadowfire carried away
To the Ice king
Whose cold bony hands waited,
for the time that the gem...
Would be in his grasp
 
Screeching and wailing triumphantly
The Shadowfire was placed in the Kings' hand 
Now he had the strength to take
and conquer all in this land
 
A battle to commence
Destroy all
Through a stolen heart
Taken from the Great Hall

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

Life's Winter Lake

Like walking on a frozen lake
We must move forward, straight ahead
Else the ice might shatter, drop us in
Leaving us fighting, possibly dead
We can never stand still, nor be sorry
Each step in the right direction’s, but a step
Move with dexterity, confidence, unwavering
Slow down not, just move with pep
As life welcomes you, you must go to it
Keeping eyes forward, move your feet
Embrace the goal you so then reach
As the ice of life, you will have beat
Look back upon the traveled path
The trialed life now’s in the past

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

HORIZON

Distant line, 
high in sky. 
Gazing at,wondering why. 
I sip my wine, 
watching distant line 

This curve of earth, 
my thought, 
for what it's worth, 
is more than four walls 
that hold me 

for I see the horizon 
not the four walls, 
I set my eyes on 

So much more to give 
So much more to live 
The thoughts of a kind 
The life I have left behind 

this distant line, 
high in sky, 
the pain of wondering why, 
it is a sign 

I can tell 
for my heart will travel well, 
I stop and think, 
rest a spell, 
do not sink 

I think of the four walls I have left, 
that horizon I see, 
I am not bereft 
for I can tell 
what is behind me 
is a shell 
time will heal 
the pain I feel 

I am with my friends, 
wise man too 
I treasure the words they send 
all this is true 
for they love me 
you see!

"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

IN THE LIGHT OF A SHADOWFIRE

The Prince of the North
Carried the gem
Through Whispering Trees
To the castle
Passing through Knights and men
 
From his hand...
A Shadowfires' wondrous light
For love will always win
In the battle between day and night
 
Across the walled garden
Flowers began to glow...
The Prince of the North
Strode forth...
To the Great Hall
 
The Shadowfire...
Gave off beams of lilac and blue light
The love inside
Conquered the wraiths bitter night
 
The Great Hall door
Silently swung open
Faeries danced
The colour bright
The Heartstone,shone
the Dreamstone,gleamed
The battle, won
 
Under a Heartstone moon
The Aurora Borealis flickered
Faerie light shone
Golden bright
 
No light could compare
To a Shadowfire
A castle...
Bathed in beautiful light
The passing of the Ice King...
On a wraiths' bitter night
 
Lilac and blue
Filled your heart
Love too
These things cannot be taken
Only given
If you let your heart awaken
 
A Shadowfire...
That lies in your heart
The colour known only to you
Forever...
Will love you too

"SPIRIT"

That hidden being, 
that lives within us all, 
all seeing,all knowing, 
it answers to your call 

It defines the unique you! 
You cannot see it, 
touch it, 
yes!,but you can feel it too! 

This fire that burns inside you, 
throws out the shadows of your life, 
past actions,regrets too. 

The spirit cannot be blown, 
for the spirit is the light, 
that destroys the dark. 
This liquid fire of white 

The spirit needs you, 
to cherish its'  flame. 
Friends come and go, 
but love remains the same 

This bright swirl of light, 
loves the inner you. 
Eyes bright, 
for the person that you are too 

The spirit can be turned away, 
burned away. 
For selfish action and thought, 
reduces the flame 
of feelings you have wrought 

For the love you show, 
flame brightly burns so. 
Pure white light, 
eyes bright 

For the flame can wait, 
for the thoughts you create, 
for the love you learn, 
more it will burn 

Spirit bright, 
pure white light, 
eyes bright 

Let everyone see your flame, 
from where it came, 
give to all 
and watch flames burn tall 

spirit light, 
eyes 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

I will always believe in you 

I wish for you
Peace and gentleness
To fill your heart

THE KINGS OF HEARTSTONE

The majesty
Of Kings
Who created
Through elements
All beautiful things

From such beginnings
From the King of Fire
A Heartstone
From the Earthen King
Flowers and trees
From the Water King
All manner of swimming things
From the King of Air
Feathers and light
For they all came together
In a world
Of magic

The Kings of Heartstone
Did bring
A world
Meant for me
For you
Filled with treasure
That lies in the hearts
Of those who love
For magic exists
For all to see

Kings
Who believed
In a Heartstone
Within them
Believed in you 
You must see
The treasures that lie
In the hearts of you and I

Such treasures
Are the elements
Of you
They have always lain
Waiting to be discovered too

The   Wise Ways laid

Such beauty
Will never surpass
A Heartstone

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

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

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

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

Reunion Road

Let's take a walk in the pouring rain 
We should be happy bear no shame 
Let's hold hands, let people stare 
Let's value every minute we can share 
There is a new life so I'm told 
It all starts down Reunion Road 
Life is as good as life can be 
It's time we raised a family 
We can have a girl and a boy 
Call her Julie, call him Roy 
There is a new life so I'm told 
It all starts down Reunion Road 
We will dig a hole out front and plant a tree 
Watch it grow with our family 
We can sit on the front porch and sip on tea 
Just imagine our peace, love and harmony 
Our dreams are waiting so I'm told 
It all starts down Reunion Road 
I still need to find this dream girl of mine 
I pray to the man, he assures me that in time 
He tells me we will both know it right when we meet 
Maybe at church, or passing in the street 
It will be a true act of fate 
My patience is strong, but it's so hard to wait 
We will walk hand in hand, never let go 
It all starts down Reunion Road

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

Watching stars fly

Standing on the edge of light 
Looking in to the night

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 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

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

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

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

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

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

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

THE MESSANGER OF PEACE

The Messanger of peace
looks gladly upon us
and endures patience
when most of us
turn away and don't
listen to His words....

The Messanger of peace
waits for the believers that
that are laughed at by the large
number of unwise!

The Messanger of peace
reopens the closed gates
of Heaven for us;
the messanger of brotherhood
and equal love
teaches us to live
in peace with neighbors
in all places...to love
and pray for enemies,
instead of returning evil for evil!

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

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

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

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

Showdown At the Pizzeria...

Yet another of Tom's True Tales...and not even exaggerated!!

A while back, I guess I was 17 or 18,
And leader of the "Gors",
My friend Barry Bernstein and I
went on a double date,
Little realizing, what would be our fate...

Now Barry's tag was "Noodles the Shiv"
His propensity to wield his gravity knife,
I was a bit more low-keyed, but to 
anger me was to invite strife

Now the mother of one of the girls
had dropped us off at the movie,
When the show was over,
and we were feeling groovy,
We stopped at the pizzeria
next door,
Sat at a table and it took no more,
For five greaser's at a table near,
To start making comments
that we could hear...
My hair was a bit long,
but my temper short,
They asked if I was an Indian,
which I doubt they thought,
They laughed at us, it was so sad,
Until somehow I got so mad...

I took off my garrison belt,
It's edges sharpened like razors,
Wrapped it around my hand,
My eyes showing crazes,
I went over to their table,
and challenged them,

"Come on, you faggots!!
You wanna fight?!?!
I'll take you all on, as is my right...

They grew quiet now,
their eyes showed fear,
Thinking I was a madman,
Well, yes, that was clear...

No fear I felt, only rage,
And really hoped,
to challenge me to engage,
But their blood was drained
from their faces,
This guy's insane!!!...
Let's get outta' here,
In speedy paces...

So they left, and I
returned to my seat,
and then our pizza, we did eat

Ten minutes later,
with the mother on her way,
We walked out,
and I gotta say....

Now there were 12 or more,
with bats, chains, and more
Out for our blood, cause
ya can't ignore...
A failed face-down,
such loss of face,
Might as well pack up,
a disgrace to your race.....

The mother's station wagon,
it did approach,
I told Barry to walk slow,
So they knew at most,
They'd be in a fight,
might cost them dear.....
Hurry up, Mom,
they're gettin near...
They still hesitated,
such fear I'd struck,
They weren't about
to push their shakey luck...

Up rolled the car, and we got in,
The mother oblivious
to the great din,
As she started to pull away,
trash cans started,
to fly our way.....

"What's with these kids?"
she wondered aloud,
Not realizing how close,
We'd evaded their crowd...

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

PURPLE AND BLUE

reflecting 
Shades of purple and blue 
Where I am,

Left a shadow in the sand 

A solitary figure on the shore... 
Holding a moon 
From with.... 
Soft light... 
did pour 

The sea... 
In shades of purple and blue 
Filled me too 
Soft light reflecting 
The heart detecting....

Beams of light 
Scattered across the sea, 
lit up the purple and blue

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

PRAIRIE

PRAIRIE 

On a wild prairie 
Where wild flowers grew 
I drove limitless miles 
Looking for you 

Field upon field 
Filled with gold 
Wild flowers 
Purple and blue 
Looking for you 

Such expanse of sky 
Such a prairie 
Wild flowers 
Picked by me 
Looking for you 

When the blue,

In a field of gold 
If only I could see 
A sky for me 
Looking for you

On a prairie 
Where wild flowers grew 
purple and blue 
One day 
I will find...

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

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

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

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

Climbs higher and higher

Never let go

A flame to ignite
Of purest blue

HEART CHEST

I pull open a drawer in my heart, 
for it takes physical will to do so 
to reach for the feeling inside 

Some drawers are small, 
some big 

For what it contains 

Small drawers for hurt and meanness 
big drawers for love and patience. 
You decide on the drawers you will hold 

How many you want,you decide. 
The drawers open and close, 
friends and foes 
can live side by side, 
in the drawers of the heart 

The person you let in 
can open these drawers. 
The one you love never opens 
drawers of jealousy and hate. 

They never open them even though, 
they know its there, 
and they know it so 

The person you despise 
can open the drawers of hate and lies. 
Resist with all your might, 
keep them tight, 
for you must rise 

The heart of drawers, 
can draw your heart in 
pull out a feeling,mood 
and a sigh 

The drawers are meant to be opened, 
some willingly,some not 
for not to open drawers 
will allow feelings to rot 

Open and close, 
the feelings can grow, 
from the high 
to the low 

It will tell you what's best, 
in the drawers of the chest 

For the heart does know,

SECRET PLACE

A place you can go 
when hurt breaks you so 

Retreat within,find the key 
for there are many keys 
to the secret place 

Key for hurt and pain 
Key for imagination 
Key for magical lands 

The secret place, 
the key ,the door, 
only you know what its for 

Go within your self and explore, 
you are the keeper, 
you know where to go, 
to the door where gentleness will flow 

The secret place 

Your door, many keys 

Key to unlock your heart 
Key to love again 
Key to experience loss and pain 
Key to live and breathe again 

Many keys you can hold, 
but only one door, 
you decide,not told, 
The key you want and what its for 

Dont carry too many keys, 
for the keys are heavy in hand 
and heavy in heart 

The key of pain and loss, 
the heaviest of all 

The key of happiness, 
delicate and fine, 
made with pure golden sunshine 

Carry this key to your secret place 
the best key of all 

The key of love does'nt have a key 
merely warmth 
for this door doesn't need a key 
for there is no door to love 

Love is all around, 
not in one secret place, 
but in all of us, 
wells from within, 
flowing from the heart 

the secret place

SAILS AT SUNSET

Billowing white
A tall masted ship
Gleaming wet
Sped on
In to a setting sun
 
Mizzen and top gallants flying
Such golden light
Fell upon a ship
That sped on 
In to the setting sun
 
Billowing white
Translucent too
Such golden llight
Fell upon a ship
That shone
On the big blue
In to the setting sun
 
She sailed westwards
Followeed a setting sun
Disappeared with it too
Golden light
Replaced with blue
 
She sailed westwards
Golden light shone too
A ship
Swallowed in colour
In to the setting sun

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 
Slipstream

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

ON AN OCEAN

I soar endlessly 
on an ocean 
so blue 
the wings ache 
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

Blue is the colour

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

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

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

The Shadows of the heart

The Shadows of the heart

Sometimes
Nothing stays the same
Where ever you turn
The wind
And its’ song
Can never return

In the shadows
Of the heart
I felt
Its’ bony fingers
Clasping
All of my night

The shadows climbed
I could feel the dread
All I wanted to say
All I have said

I cannot live
In a Shadowland
For my heart
Lives in light
I can give only so much
For I despair of the night

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

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

WITH THE PRETTIEST EYES

My anguish............ 
Burned...... 
Burned deep 
The black heart to vanquish 
No pleasure to keep 

There is a girl out there.......... 
That feels it too.......... 
With a heart, 
beating through 

A girl..... 
With the prettiest eyes 
A single moment.......... 
Filled with light......... 
When she looked at me 
Heaven sent 
Heavenly sighs 

When you connect........ 
A moment in time.......... 
The eyes reflect........... 
A moment in light............ 
The heart squeezed.......... 
The moment seized......... 

A girl........... 
With the prettiest eyes 
Filled me with light 
My black heart vanquished 
Filled me with sighs 
What I wished... 
A moment.............. 
In her sight

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

THESE THINGS

Sometimes I think 
What can I do? 
Before I sink 
What can I change? 
Within my self 
I cannot change what is true 

I cannot hide the weaknesses, 
in my self too 
Nor can I conquer, 
such self loathing 
I live with such things 
What can I do? 

The angriness inside, 
a bitter pill to swallow 
You feel that there is no tomorrow 
Only here and now 
You tried.... 
and how! 

You cannot try, 
to hide it all 
You must get by, 
before you fall 

Such weaknesses, 
I found 
Such strength , 
other things too 

I cannot hide the strengths, 
in my self too 
They will conquer 
My weaknesses... 
This is true 

For, true things 
lie in the heart 
Beating true... 
I, will never fall 
For, these things ... 
Conquer all

LOVE THE TRUE GOD

Love the true God,
and let him fight your many
battles for you when you're weary;
love Him and seek His favor...
He is the truest friend
to run to in times of fear!

Ever wonder why most people don't find
a complete and genuine happiness,
if all their energy is wasted on vain things?
And if they ever find it in their lifetime...
it will be unfelt and shallow;
be like the simple friars
who dedicate their lives to the Lord,
and pray earnestly for all sinners!
 
Love the true God 
with a will so bold...
love the One who's forgiving and patient,
but don't mock Him
with your unkept promises;
let Him teach you His kind ways...
trust Him and be assured that
He will spare you from the approaching storm!

The confusion that religion has created,
has driven Mankind to irrationality:
they declare war for their great god, 
kill their brothers with hatred inside;
amidst fire,smoke,cries and blood,
be the judge of this human madness:
don't partake in their insanity...
look to Him with calm and gladness!

Love the true God,
be a glorious warrior
without swaying your sword...
to clash with the enemy 
standing and waiting afar;
prove you unshakable integrity
by renouncing your belligerency!

All things are possible

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

Taken from the blue sea 
my colour will fade... 

Put me back...

Waiting for you

Our lives... 
Can never fade

THE PAINTER

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

SUMMER TREES

Dappled light streams, 
filtered through 
Shaded green, 
mossy rock gleams 

Such light pooled below.. 
Strange flutterings, 
I heard so, 
in summer trees 

Deepest,richest green, 
filled my heart 
Summer trees 
Where have you been? 
Lost on a soft breeze 

Tall and strong 
The giants of the earth 
They cannot walk 
Here they belong 

Summer trees, 
caressed the ground 
Deepest, richest green 
Nature's colour frieze 
In it, I breathed 
in it, I drowned

MYSTERIES OF THE HEART

Shadows, flew 
across my heart 
Dark too 

Such dark beauty 
Such mystery 
Shadows too,

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

When I needed you most

It came to me.... 
Took me up high... 
Passed sweeping clouds

It took a small moment.... 
To realize....

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....

The wind can lull... 
The wind can blow... 
Perhaps I am a gull... 
Only I ,will ever know...

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

SHOW YOUR COMPASSION

If and when times of desperation
become the daily,intolerant strife 
for so many who have given up their fight 
and their reality is threatened by alienation;
then,by all means, come to their rescue
by being a messanger of truth...

Show your compassion
and good intentions toward anyone;
strangers laugh and just look away...
as if they don't have an ounce of pity!
Don't be like them
who think of themselves,
but put others first;
be happy to be the last,
show your compassion,
because nobody should be turned away!

If and when times of delight
are in favor of those needing light,
be glad for them and share their laughters,
because they've waited for that moment
when the skies would open up... 
to shower them with blessings!

Show your compassion,
instead of indifference and hostility;
they need your strong hands to
lift them out of the abyss they had fallen into;
and it wll take an extraordinary faith 
to accomplish that in any given situation;
begin with one simple step... 
to challenge anyone's credibility!
Show your compassion,
with the truest intention...

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 WAS 1969

In a starlit sky, 
a beautiful moon rose 
I watched it pass by 

I looked upon the earth 
and saw green and blue 

Frosted clouds of white 
Forests  stretched far, 
behind the night 

In the minds' eye 
such vividness 
belongs to you and I 

Where was i? 
Far way 
High in the sky 

It was 1969 
We came back from the moon, 
everything I could see... 
Was all mine

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 GENTLENESS IN HIS BEAUTIFUL VOICE

In the early fifties...Elvis
was an unknown singer,
who struggled to be heard...
to be taken to stardom;
so he paid four dollars
for his first record
to cheer up this great nation...
'till its early inflation!

There was a certain provocation and gentleness
in his soft, unique voice...
enough to draw world-wide attention;
if boredom seeped into any soul,
it would turn into a feeling so joyful...
just by listening to his songs!
Ma and gradma finally gave in:
they listened to it without considering it a sin!

The gentless in his beautiful voice,
and the honesty in his warm looks...
couldn't be ignored;
and it was felt from Memphis
to Las Vegas..
from North America to Europe,
and anywhere Elvis' s
golden voice was heard!

Some folks considered rock and roll evil,
my generation idolized it...
it started to give music
an up-tempo that changed it forever;
and when he died,many assumed
that he would be buried along
with his legendary name...
they were so misled and wrong!

It's August...a sad month to remember,
and I sit by an old record player...
sadly playing his vinyl records
as if he were still alive:  frantically dancing,,
and singing his lyrics with ease!
Elvis, all that I remember...
all that I treasure of your rich life,
that ended in tragedy,
is the unsurpassed passion
you put into your splendid career!

Elvis, you didn't go without 
a remembrance or a tribute:
my thoughts are put into words with affection,
and my lyrics are set to music to up-lift me; 
and who's to say...that I am mistaken:
not to be proud  of everything you achieved,
and of the influence you had on me?

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 
Dlanets 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, 
in a night sky 
The Jovian light returned 

The suns' radiance 
felt upon my face 
in deepest coldest space 
Yet I sense... 
Jupiter, rising

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

COURAGE AND HOPE

That September morning New York City
was shimmering under a new sun,
but soon that bustilng energy,
sparkling in everyone's eyes, stopped to shine!

Airplanes slammed into the North and South Towers,
horrible screams pierced the smokey air;
sirens wailing: the airborne enemy had stricken twice...
to afflict death upon the innocent and frail!

Whenever we look back, we don't see that empty space:
the earth still violently shakes,
and the sky swiftly turns dark and fierce...
as they reach out to those helping hands of grace!

Those who survived are immensely grateful
to those brave ones who gave up their lives and call;
those who died will be greatly rewarded by a just God,
who blesses the good and cursed the wicked! 

Let's all remember what happened on that tragic day;
and if we still shed tears and sorrow persists today,
let's be glad that they paved the way for us...
to make us aware of other imminent dangers!

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 
everything in sight

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

ON AN EAGLES' WINGS

On an eagles' wings 
I climbed high 
Saw many things 
Saw me 
Oh my! 

A golden feather, 
to fall 
Take it 
It is for you, 
hear its' call 

I saw many things, 
on an eagles ' wings 
My heart to follow 
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 
My heart,

I knew 
Knew it to be true 

My heart...

On an eagles' wings 
I climbed high 
for such things... 
Never die

BEAUTY AND MAGIC

Such beauty passed my way 
Fields of cosmos 
Birds of the air 
Another golden day 

Is it all for me? 
can I share? 
For such beauty, 
is more than I can bare 

Blue oceans 
Colour dreams 
Such beauty 
Warmth of emotions 

The colours grew 
From the heart 
Beauty and magic 
Flowed through 

A touch of hand 
Open to the sky 
Golden sand 
See the birds fly 

Such beauty passed my way 
Always golden 
Always another day 
Therein  lies the magic 
In my heart, it lay

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

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

ANGEL LIGHT

Carried into the night, 
I felt a warm hand in mine 
Reassuring too, 
this was my time 

My life is gone now, 
I never gave up the fight 
For now,  I travel... 
In soft angel light 

The stars flew past, 
not a sound was heard 
The hand in mine... 
Soft hand warm, 
this was my time 
Through the night, 
like a bird 

The hand in mine began to glow, 
soft and warm 
Now I could see the feathers too... 
Not far to go... 

Angel light, 
carrying me 
Gold and  bright 
I stepped through... 
Left the night..., 
and saw heaven in sight

MY WAY TO THE STARS

On a night
Filled with stars
To find my way
Through soft earthly light
To touch
Star bright

To fly free
On a night
Filled with stars
For eternity

I if could only release
The inner me
To find my way
To the stars
Feel celestial peace

Somethings are only difficult
When they can be
Only I can
Find my way to the stars

I want to take you
With me
Share too
Love with starlight
On my way to the stars

Passing planets
Galaxies of stars
The secret glow
Of Mars
All this to see
With you
With me

On a night
Filled with stars
Earthly light
You came with me
On my way
To the stars

Shades of purple and blue 
Where I am,

Left a shadow in the sand 

A solitary figure on the shore... 
Holding a moon 
From with.... 
Soft light...

In shades of purple and blue 
Filled me too 
Soft light reflecting 
The heart detecting....

Beams of light 
Scattered across the sea, 
lit up the purple and blue

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

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

Somethings you never know 
Untill you find them 

As you see... 
As you feel... 
In your darkest hour... 
You find something 
To take you, 
Higher

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

Spring

A new beginning opening up.  The buttercup,
The daffodil, the song bird's trill.  Like being
Young again the bursting forth with the new
Without a thought  of rembmebering.  Recalling
Not the toil and strife of winter's blight, but,
Wallowing in the joyous birth as we seek to
Bathe ourselves in it as if it never was before.

Old winter left his mark - a blow.  The pounding
Of the wind and drifting snow.  Dreariness is  In
Our Thanks and makes its way into our soul. 
Lest we complain, we strive again to make our
Way to something sweet, a fond retreat into
The  mind of fresh and new.

Dreaming of a summer's day.  A trip to some
delicious beach with sparkling water in our
reach and running sand between our tows.
And, so it goes till spring is here and nature
plays her symphony of life again.

Inner Child Delights

The inner child within my soul 
Completes me and she makes me whole 
Soaring spirit riding high 
Chasing dreams as they float by 
Clouds so white, a place to rest 
Welcome warm, our little guest 

They whisper softly come to me 
Rest at last, upon me free 
Colors softly signal to Springs rain 
While rainbows stretch, and preen, so vain 
The inner child within my heart 
Delights to see the heavens part 

Without my inner child so true 
I couldn't fly through skies of blue 
Billowy tufts of stagnant rain 
Recycled for the season's gain 
Our laughter tickling Heaven's sky 
Delights my inner child and I

If patience wasa slender reed............... 
Then the heart is a mighty tree 
These qualities you need 
You see.......

STRONG BELIEVERS

Jesus calls to mission
strong believers...
to spread His teachings 
to each Nation;
Jesus sends them
to preach His Gospel
and their deeds can tell;
and like Him they do no harm!

All strong believers
walk under His guidance
and light brightens their way;
they can hear Him say,
"Go to the very ends
of the earth,and let
my name be known, for relief,
to all struggling for justice...
to all in need of consolation;
I am that shining,undying light...
and I give eternal life,
because I am salvation!"

Jesus blesses strong believers...
everytime they show others:
they are true followers in troubled times;
and He tells them,
"Blessed be my Father's name...
glorify the Creator
of this Universe;
trust in Him,fear Him and He won't
forget your needs...
ask Him and He will satisfy your hunger!"

Jesus needs more strong believers
to prepare a kingdom where all can live
together to time indefinite..
a kingdom in which death is unknown like tears;
and strong believers can't let the unbelievers
change their precious Paradise,
because they will lose all they have!
Strong believers,raise your voices...
and like the angelic songs of victory...
Armageddon is the final battle in Mankind's destiny!

GRACE"

From the heart, 
comes from deep within 

That deep pool 
of rich emotion 

Tranquil and calm 
this sea of goodness 
on which our actions flow 

Grace,to delight in the smallest of things 
call of bird, 
to hear a child sing 

This deep pool hides many a thought, 
I sail on this pool,hand trailing in its wake, 
new feelings sought 

To dip in and reach what you want to be, 
accept what what you are, 
what you can be 

Grace,the most precious pool we have within us 
We have many wells of emotion 
Grace,the precious of all. 
cannot be given away,only sailed upon 

If you have that sail boat, 
sail with me 
Sail with heart unfurled 

Grace, 
comes from within, 
reflected actions flow, 
from the tide of my heart 
gently lapping on the edge of my life 

From the heart 
from within

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,

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

Far down the beach 
Carrying me 

Across the sea,

blew out the night 
Such beauty for me 

Believe in such things 
The  windlight 
to take away your night 
To set free,

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

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
