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

White Dove Blessing

WHITE DOVE BLESSING

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

Boundless

BOUNDLESS

Striving to remain
In the moment, yet of course
Without the striving

Home Again

HOME AGAIN

Now I am in place
And there’s nothing left to do
Since place is in me
