The Magic Of Words

THE MAGIC OF WORDS

NOW and HERE
Is the one and only
NOWHERE
Everywhere

One blink of the I
And back-to-front
NOW is reversed
For it is time

Time to be WON
The time has arrived
As NOW reveals
Its eternal nature

Pure consciousness
Unsullied
TIME is reversed
For it is EMIT

Time to emit
Heaven’s light
As within, as without
Time to shine on

Heads bowed
Hands together
It is TIME NOW
Let us play

Light

Share The Light*

Dreaming

* Why not share the light?

Opposites

OPPOSITES

The opposite of love
Is not hatred but fear
Hatred is simply
An armour for fear

Darkness is not
The opposite of light
It is simply
An absence of light

Thwarting The Gloom: Senryu

THWARTING THE GLOOM

Lights switched on midday
Not shameless exorbitance
… Poetic licence

Passed Over: Tanka

PASSED OVER

Dearest Margaret
Lives in a higher place now
Showers me with light
I am humbled by her gift
And, she says, not before time

Light And Dark: Shadorma

LIGHT AND DARK

In darkness
A light seeks us out
Throws a line
Lest we drown
Whilst most marvellous of all
‘Tis we who threw it

‘Neath Doom’s Trump

‘NEATH DOOM’S TRUMP

Through deepest midnight
Hid light persists in shadow
Embroiders darkness

Encouragement

ENCOURAGEMENT

Veiled by cloud the sun
Still supplies sufficient light
To kindle the search

Resolve

RESOLVE

May we enjoy
And openly share

Shed light
Add warmth

All around, always
While we still may
