Naturally: Four By Six

NATURALLY II

I see plants before me
As they stand before me
Sustained by the same air
Breathing our shared essence

Take Time

TAKE TIME

Intimate stranger
Unknown friend
Stop dead
Take time
Take time

Look around
Out there
In here
Reflect … consider
Your input

After that
Consider this
This day
May be
Your last

Heralds Of Peace

HERALDS OF PEACE

All too frequently feeling
as if, as if to be achieving,
achieving all too little beyond
a preaching to an angelic choir.

Well worn, ancient and repetitive
our words while these apostate demons
our counterpoint – admittedly
– are sadly otherwise occupied.

Yet this is our ground. Our ground!
And so here upon it we stand:
bellowing, howling, yelling,
whispering, weeping …

Whichever seems timely and appropriate.

Pax Vobiscum

PAX VOBISCUM

First the peace within
Recognition arises
Then the peace without

Points Of View

POINTS OF VIEW

To assert one should live without opinions
Is both clearly impossible and paradoxical
But to defend them or argue them to others
Is both quite pointless and often dangerous

Easy As Cake (A Piece Of Pie)

EASY AS CAKE (A PIECE OF PIE)

Make way … Stand aside
Stand aside … That’s the ticket
Just enjoy the ride

Courage

COURAGE

The courage
To still confront
Ageing, any mirror
With neither shame
Nor puling denial

The courage
Of (s)he always
The true warrior
The one ever
Disdaining weaponry

Five Day Song Challenge: Day Two

Audrey Dawn – The Oldest Daughter & Red Headed Sister suggested I address myself to meeting this challenge. Two difficulties arise: I. as long time readers will know, I have already posted a number of my favourites so they aren’t eligible; 2. I am by necessity limited to tracks which are freely available on line. In retaliation I decided not to further restrain myself to sticking solely to tracks with lyrics.

2. Arthur Honegger, Pastorale d’été.

Companionship

COMPANIONSHIP

When embraced nature
Gives the lie to solitude
Rather grants solace
