Good Friday, 2019

GOOD FRIDAY, 2019

2019

( … 18 … 17 … 16 … )

Hardly a cloud in the sky
No need for this jacket
I discover too late
Uncomfortably

A tiny discomfort
In the scheme of things
Dwarfed by Spring’s bounty
Overall not a bad day after all

A good day for a crucifixion
Despite all the discomfort
Faith, hope and patience
All’s well that ends well

After all

After all

Orphaned Vows

ORPHANED VOWS

A solemn promise
Neglected and unfulfilled
Becomes an insult

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

Adversity

ADVERSITY

This one’s for Audrey (and many another).

I hit the road
It hit me back
We paused a mo
Now here we go

Inverted Commas

INVERTED COMMAS

Words like “trust”
Like “faith”
Like “acceptance”
Come to mind

For “We” are
After all
Simply ripples
In an unfathomable ocean

Clanging Cymbals: Sevenling

CLANGING CYMBALS – A SEVENLING

Life takes its course
Demise a constant threat
All things must pass

Questions pose themselves
We tender our own certainties
We fight and murder over faith

In truth we haven’t a clue

Hope And Best Wishes

Miss Jones

MISS JONES

We lost one another somehow, lost our way
In a trick of the light in a mist in a maze

Gasping, grasping, grappling day after day
As seconds turn into minutes, hours, days

So long, so long by some cruel fate kept apart
Yet memories glow in my mind, dear old friend

And it’s chin up, stand firm and never lose heart
For some day we’ll revel together again in the end

Satsang

SATSANG

Yet in the darkness
Strangely, unexpectedly
At the core a light

Genesis Recalled

GENESIS RECALLED

In the beginning? …….. God

Created the heaven and the earth
And the earth was without form and void
And darkness was upon the face of the deep

And the Spirit of God moved
Upon the face of the waters
And God said, “Let there be light”

And there was light
And God saw the light
…….. That it was good

and God divided the light from the darkness
And God called the light Day
and the darkness he called Night

And the evening and the morning were the first day
