Small Mercies: Four By Six

SMALL MERCIES

We’re stuck here forever
Yes it may be painful
We have eternity
So what’s with the big rush?

(W)rapping

(W)RAPPING

Wrapping wrapping
Wrapping wrapping

Once we’ve removed
All of this wrapping
We get to the present
We get to the present

Rapping rapping
Rapping rapping

And boogie on down
And boogie on down
To a back beat track
Till the cows come home

Sweet Neighbour

SWEET NEIGHBOUR

Whatever gift you might perceive
Some another has been gifted with
Is surely by definition also yours
Since elsewise how perceived?

Look within, my dear, discover
Both eternity and infinity
Patiently await you
As ever was

As ever was
Patiently await you
Both eternity and infinity
Look within, my dear, discover

Since elsewise how perceived?
Is surely by definition also yours
Some another has been gifted with
Whatever gift you might perceive

Formernesses Recalled

FORMERNESSES RECALLED

“Is it up?” she wantonly cried
I knew not how and yet
For lost were we in that
Conjecture manifest

… Untongued

… Momentarily

… Eternally

I knew not how and yet
Still know not yet
In retrospect

Grasping at straws as I may
As any of us ever may
This camel’s broken back
Added to the score

Adieu
Godspeed

Moons

MOONS

Many moons ago
And many moons to suffer
Yet but an eye-blink
Moistening the opened eye
That is ever unblinking

Twin Souls

TWIN SOULS

Eternity, they say, is long
Contains other futures
Other lives, therefore
There may be space
For current hope
To bloom again

The Mysteries Of Time

THE MYSTERIES OF TIME

this summer day
for the first time
waking to reality
to heart
growing
open to a new view
without boundaries

a quiet space
creative
souls in process
lifetime after lifetime together

at any time
take a moment
where the winds are not felt
where you can find peace

you will know warmth in your heart
always
soon
…..

Echo In Amber

ECHO IN AMBER

A drop of water
Disturbs the placid surface
Echoes Basho’s frog

Beyond The Veil

BEYOND THE VEIL

Death without dying
Consciousness not done with us
Or vice versa
