Sing Your Song

Sing! Sing your song for all of us to hear!
A song well-sung will brighten any day.
Play! Play that song so full of warmth and cheer!

A sprightly song is always welcome here,
To lighten and to lift those clouds of grey.
Sing! Sing your song for all of us to hear!

The heart is gladdened by a song so dear;
It helps us with our load along the way.
Play! Play that song so full of warmth and cheer!

A happy song can wipe away a tear,
And music is the food of love, they say.
Sing! Sing your song for all of us to hear!

We welcome any willing balladeer
Whose singing can be heard above the fray.
Play! Play that song so full of warmth and cheer!

Keep singing and the sun will reappear.
Our hope still springs eternal, come what may.
Sing! Sing your song for all of us to hear!
Play! Play that song so full of warmth and cheer!

BEAUTY IN LIFE SPONTANEITY

Blank pages of life - spontaneous, unscripted, undefined
Experiences uncovers blues and rhymes one couldn't find
Begin to indite, though endings pave unsure and unplanned

Culture, law, ethics and education; man learns and understand
Defining, refining and reminding they try to do to mankind
Blank pages of life - spontaneous, unscripted, undefined

Attempt to break traditions,"outside tries", don't be confined
Falling and committing mistakes will not leave anyone behind
Begin to indite, though endings pave unsure and unplanned

Reach for something in the distance, consider a wise stand
Drench without inhibitions, "LA VITA E BELLA" bear in mind
Blank pages of life - spontaneous, unscripted, undefined

Anxieties, fear, poverty and inferiority they can blind
Yet, live! live! embrace whole life! don't ever decline! 
Begin to indite, though endings pave unsure and unplanned

Remember! NOT everyone can be given a fair second chance
Affectionate at heart and sagacious mind, manage to combine 
Blank pages of life - spontaneous, unscripted, undefined
Begin to indite, though endings pave unsure and unplanned

Remain in the Darkness

Remain in the darkness, though full of fright,
Children of faith do not fear;
I will find you there, it is a sure sight.

When the night comes, don't seek the light
Tho uncertainty is so hard to bear;
Remain in the darkness, though full of fright.

Blurred vision causing men to suffer blight
Be still, for it will be steered clear;
I will find you there, it is a sure sight.

The night, don't turn to a day bright
For brilliance is yet insincere
Remain in the darkness, though full of fright.

Blinding darkness overnight
Is all you have to bear;
I will find you there, it is a sure sight.

Tonight you should not spite
Open your heart and you will hear
Remain in the darkness, though full of fright.
I will find you there, it is a sure sight.

INSPIRATIONS recited

the     melodic chords
     at finger tips   ,  drift
back and forth into a song
     'ere long-
the vivid images
      in a painter's eye
      transformed, splash
      upon canvas-
the nouns,adjectives
      memorable verbs
      from  poetic ears
      writ large,then
sweet voices,heard
so
Come..
         fly with me
         beyond,beyond
         imagination;
Capture..
            emotion's
            aurora in your
            firmanent;
Watch..
           images descend
           as crystallised
           inspiration;
Bathe..
           in a tide
           of surreal
           tranquility;
Paint..
           what you see
           with fine words
           of poetry.
 

where
The music  of silence
calms
my mind
                 my
                 thoughts
trickle-down      
                     bubbling 
                      over
the rocks
of experience
                      Waves
of imagination
surface and  jostle
one with the other
like children
                      at play
shouting for attention
for life
on my page  
Listen to me read these poems on youtube under the name of ichthyschiro

When Will Clouds Part, the Sun Again Shine Bright

Long after the storms of the violent night
They wait in the dark, braced for the bad news
When will clouds part, the sun again shine bright?

First the shock arrives with coming daylight
How much will they save, how much will they lose
Long after the storms of the violent night.

A cold rainy day floods down on the blight
Some lost their lives, others with just a bruise
When will clouds part, the sun again shine bright?

Those who survived hold each other so tight
Knowing there’s not much that they can reuse
Long after the storms of the violent night.

It may take some time to make things just right
Through the days ahead they will often muse
When will clouds part, the sun again shine bright?

With hope and strength they face their plight
With the love and help their neighbors infuse
Long after the storms of the violent night
When will clouds part, the sun again shine bright?
