White Dove Blessing

WHITE DOVE BLESSING

Fly free, free from hate
Peace, both within and without
Fear not, love instead

Compassion

COMPASSION

Poor rich Donald
Had a heart once too

But has not yet
Found the courage

To admit it is broken
And embark upon

The painful journey
Required to mend it

Dare Devils (Reposted)

DARE DEVILS

Sly peeps from a foxhole I spy
Which of you though I wonder
Is the least untrustworthy one?
Variations on you taking turns
Flash past the slits of my eyes
Each taking their best shots

Taking their own sweet time
While I too take mine slowly
Ploughing through mugshots
Of women both lost and found
Tacitly playing judge and jury
Accuser and accused alike

Oh don’t make me lie to you
Let’s drop stubborn opinions
Let me lie with you instead
See us gratefully transported
To some other place far away
Yet together here all the time

Game, Set And Match

GAME, SET AND MATCH

Fear is the mind killer it’s said
But isn’t it as clear arrogance

(Its crooked by-blow offspring)
Is never lagging too far behind

She taught him this years ago
But sadly he failed to learn it

He taught her this years ago
But sadly she failed to learn it

To blame … teacher or pupil?
Or maybe it’s a double fault

Marching Feet

MARCHING FEET

Hark the sound of marching feet

Trump, trump, trump, trump, trump, trump
Trump, trump, trump, trump, trump, trump

Having understood the past (or have we?)
How have we so misunderstood the present?
(TV, radio and social media hypnotism?)

Hark the sound of marching feet

Trump, trump, trump, trump, trump, trump
Trump, trump, trump, trump, trump, trump

And the future, God forbid, I pray

Looking Out Not In

LOOKING OUT NOT IN

We have been schooled into believing
That love’s opposite is hate, but hate
Is simply an outbranching from fear

They want to govern us using fear
So they try to distract our attention
And teach us how to hate instead

Etiolation

ETIOLATION

The artificial disguises itself
As simply being man-made
As opposed to plain natural

Delving a little deeper though I find
“Artifice (noun) = a clever trick or stratagem
A cunning, crafty device or expedient, a wile”

I note we’ve been together for a while now
Note phonemes such as t(og)ether and while
Becoming an increasing irritation

Love and fear resume their old tango
Alarm bells and Fire Exit signs
Spring up like Autumn fungi

Odd One Out

ODD ONE OUT

Fear not; remember
That today’s ugly duckling
Is tomorrow’s swan

Transgressions

TRANSGRESSIONS

How we delude ourselves
How we love to pretend

While the better part of us
Well knows time will untie us

Has no fear – For forgiveness
Is unbound by mere time

Strangers

STRANGERS

The first thing in mind
Always, always: are they safe???
It’s my history
