In silence
In silence, we can hear wisdom imparted;
the strident bell of argument departed.

the value in others and their true motif,
hidden from themselves in a layer of...Read More

mangrove
My mango and banyan made for the shoreline
and found the vagabond truths so unrefined
New ways to live in the harsh scalding of salt
gravely dug where rivers cast slough of sad malt
Roots grappling dregs of mud-rich detritus
offering alms to canopy’s incubus
Veering...Read More

Christmas is always a busy time of year,
More traffic on the roads, as the Day draws near,
Shopping to be done, last-minute gifts to choose,
Searching for that something you think will amuse,
In an atmosphere that is optimistic,
No one expects to be...Read More

Double J - just jetsam
Marred and minced remnants pile high in a storm’s swarm
Yesterdays, hardened-soft, surface where sea’s warm…

Flotsam found, lays tales around, in frayed traces
Another shattered shell whimpers of graces
vying with the sea-swept sands: gloss embossed fades…
Ocean’s dead! These are castaways of Hades,...Read More

Premium Member Divine Diana
Diana, our beloved princess, has been killed,
The blood of "the people's princess" too cruelly spilled,
The car in which she travelled moving much too fast,
And now our precious English Rose has breathed her last;
She was too innocent, too beautiful to die,
And...Read More

I am making decisions every morning,
None of them comes along with any warning.

Premium Member My God Is Love

Are we mystical beings? the child asked me.
Theological question given to thee.
How do I answer? I have nothing to hide.
My true response lies deeply way down inside.
Answer not easily given my child.
Oft given in dreams or walks in the wild.
So...Read More

Truth
Truth is clear and One, but the veils of belief
hide outward constructs causing spiritual grief.

The Word is Truth, in reading some comprehend
but the heart’s intuition does not transcend

the Spirit’s intent, so, afraid to awake 
and slumbering ‘til death, His truth...Read More

A Muzdawidj
All is alive and living, rising to light
civilizations peak in power’s full might
kingdom building, making self’s endeavors right.

Jackals searching for water in desert sand
dried streams and thorns in wilderness’ empty land
Allah’s Truth lost and too blind to understand

The dry seed...Read More

Kingdom of Ants
Little ant where are you going so busy
digging tunnels through life’s dust and living easy?

Chasing after the wind of lost mortal time
a meaningless meandering through world’s grime

Weak kingdoms of dark earth with shadows of death
hiding the truth of destruction with...Read More
