Silent Voice

--Tree Silhouette-- 

shimmering tree
they're no footsteps around       
but fallen leaves 

afternoon twilight
heaven is listening
peaceful lonesomeness
Autumn waits 
The wind blows the mind   
leaves falling softly

No Chain, No Charm

In Unison-
~No Chain, No Charm~

United we own
Firm, full of finest goodies-
Our ground of freedom.

United we stand
Firm from failure and horror-
On the ground of strength.

United we pray
Faithfully with open mind-
Our bliss is assured.

Cries for peace heard loud 
War mongers, rifles lifted 
Silence established!

Moon and sun are best of friends.

Cool summer forest

Emerald moss back stones
Drenching sunlight trickle
Where I rest my mind

A bird is building its nest

Shiver of the leaves,
A reverberating peace:

Earth her cotton bra
Slip on, soft white, fallen clouds
Fresh milk of heaven

This is the undress
Of trees, rivers, homes and things
Time's skin, milky white

White as bones in light
The feathers of angels wings
Fruits upon the sight

Now the heavens flake
Petals cuddled on the ground
Crystal dust of winds

Drunken Moon

**blood moon** 

Waiting for night fall 
The moment of love is made 
The moon is bruised

Illusive silence---
evaporating in noise
at rest in one’s peace.


The tranquil sunset---
in skies of sunlit silence
waits for the morning.


Within sun-split clouds---
one inhaling scenic grace
immersed in silence.

The Surest Path to Peace

The path to your peace,
Is not to lay down your arms,
But hold them outstretched.

Abandon your wars,
Your sacred prejudices,
To live born again.

In another's arms,
Surrender yourself to love,
And peace will find you.

The earth returns to slumber.
