TERMINAL

The conductor cries out
“End of the line! All change!”
Passengers wake up
Look round for their possessions
But no pockets in a shroud

Equality

EQUALITY

Shake your brother awake
If he is still asleep

And if your sister is still asleep
Then waken her more gently

For her’s is not a dream
But a foul nightmare

The Road To Damascus

THE ROAD TO DAMASCUS

(Enigmatic, fleeting)
Made him grovel,
Forswear his faulty murderous
Dream.

One Too Free … NOW!

ONE TOO FREE … NOW!

Remember that time is an illusion
Everything is happening at this moment
And has (also) already happened

Nothing to worry about
The worst has already happened
And we are still here

Let go and watch
Offer whatever help you can
And let it be

Going Going Gone

Here comes the Unborn
Celebrating the Autumn

Alice’s tea party

Return to the source
Time, energy and patience
The three handmaidens

Practice makes perfect
Day after month after year
Until time dissolves

For Our Eyes Only

FOR OUR EYES ONLY

Nothing to hide
Nowhere to hide it

Nowhere to hide then
Except behind illusion

Nothing to see here
Move along
