Dublin

Here I sit alone,
So far away from my home,
City is alive.

Silver Lining

Spring has come again,
Sunshine comes from behind clouds,
Each day a new life.

THE MIRACLE OF LIFE

THE MIRACLE OF LIFE.


Many men altercated and argued,
Day and night did they dismay,
How could one ever argue,
The miracle of life, the light of day.

I should not ever question,
None should ever question I,
For we are one in the same,
Attempting to live before we die.

Our god is one in all,
The natural mystic ever present,
From the buzz of the bees, 
The tide of the seas,
To the feathers of the pheasant.

The sentience of all things,
Should not be underestimated,
For one might say of man,
Intelligence presumed, could be debated.

The beautiful bees are ever busy,
But have the gift of sting,
The birds rejoice in the morning,
For their ability to sing,
One could also enquire,
"But they have the gift of flight?",
Man has many blessings,
Few can compare to our foresight.

What is man without a fish?,
A fish without a sea,
A house without a home,
A cup without the tea.

We are all in one,
All in one are we.
We must regain respect,
For the leaf of every tree.

The fire deep inside,
The spirit of every life,
Has beauty beyond comprehension,
What good can come of strife?

The bird flies for food,
Pollen for the buzzing bee,
What point in having foresight,
If the foresight cannot see?

Sometimes

I see her sometimes,
Hair comforting as autumn,
Eyes and smile delight.

Wait

My bed has seen all,
Failures and success-fullness,
I wait for Zion.

DRUNKEN MOON

*Through the fog*


Tide in a bottle
the sun of night gives me light
smoke and loneliness

Silently

Clock ticks silently,
Morning turning to night time,
Skin starts to sag.

At last

D eep inside my head I loom,
E ach day I feel a sense of doom.
P eace I cannot seem to find,
R each as I might through out my mind.
E ach day a herculean task,
S ome days I can't put on the mask.
S eemingly fine, "I'm good and well"
I say with a smile ,as I encounter hell.
O ne day I know this too shall pass,
N ot long until its over, at last.

A Lingering Moment Of Peace

A Lingering Moment Of Peace.


Come lighten up, the day is near,
No point now for anticipation and fear.
The deeds are done, the bed is made,
No point in having the inevitable delayed.
Feel the life in every breath, 
The only thing guaranteed in life is death.
Taste and touch, every sweet sensation,
The deity will soon give revelation.
For a lingering moment of peace should you strive,
Oh ,what a gift, to be alive.

Without desire

Once again I reminisce,
all my days amount to this.
Am i standing where I'm meant to be?
Are decisions made, or are they free?

A fork in the road could go either way,
who knows what might happen today?
Tired I grow as time gets late,
do I leave my life to health or fate?

Do I write the book of life, or read?
Tomorrow, is it guaranteed?
Do not despair, or so I am told,
how can one dying be so bold?

Life I have found can be quite a thrill,
if it ended now have I had my fill?
This time around what did I acquire?
To seize the moment without desire.
