Refuge

REFUGE

I take refuge in the spirit that surrounds me
I take refuge in the spirit within me
I take refuge in the path I am travelling
I take refuge in my companions on the path

I take refuge in the spirit that surrounds me
I take refuge in the spirit within me
I take refuge in the path I am travelling
I take refuge in my companions on the path

I take refuge in the spirit that surrounds me
I take refuge in the spirit within me
I take refuge in the path I am travelling
I take refuge in my companions on the path

Among You We

AMONG YOU WE

We did not come here
To add to your burgeoning
But to comfort you
Chaste and rarely recognised
Quietly we came and went

Dunnow’s Recompense

DUNNOW’S RECOMPENSE

To find strength and comfort in uncertainty
Is the reward for an earnest searching
Beyond the generally agreed upon
And thenceforth universally decreed

The One

THE ONE

Remember you are
The one and only
Utterly unique

Remember you are
Yes, the one for whom
You were created

Remember yourself
Especially when
You are forgotten

Appreciated (30d)

APPRECIATED

Kindly words
Never come amiss
Both hearts are
Uplifted
Let us ensure they never
Go out of fashion

String Of Lights (30c)

STRING OF LIGHTS

Uniting
Poets illumine
Your dark night
Of the soul
Passing the torch down the years
Lightening the load

Common Sense

COMMON SENSE

To make soup is good
One’s bladder is more urgent
Each to its own time

The Coping Mechanism

THE COPING MECHANISM

Nothing worries us
Alarm clock keeps going off
But we just press “Snooze”

Gentle

GENTLE

Gentle is best
I’m sure I read that
Somewhere
Or maybe dreamt it
Who’s to say?

But if not
Then maybe t’is I
Should write it
Right here, right now
Gentle is best

And always

Dark Garment

DARK GARMENT

The night is a gown
Newly washed, unfolded and
Pulled over my head
