Until my last breath
My last gasp
I will be here
Trying to explain

The simplicity
We have lost
In the mêlée
We maintain

And to say Adieu
As I go from here
I will shed no tear
As I will see you soon.


Stoic & Buddhist





A sigh revealed

Too long covered

Virtue and sin

Melded to one

Earth and sky

Taste of life

And knowing is

The return of love



Land Of Dreams



courtesy of :


Nothing is, as it seems

Veiled and false

In this land of dreams


Beauty covers pain

Deeply hidden

No one is to blame


What you may want

Others become

Farther from the Fonte


Cut the subtle vein

The horror within

As life yields to pain


And awaken, please

From this play

You have the keys




I see and love

I understand,  I try

Unmoved in my seeing

In the least of these


I do not; I cannot, judge

Every breath a gift

Yet I cannot rest

Even if not for me


Others abound

And I fail into my,”Life.”

My Wants go

My Concerns go


I am for you.

I have always been

For in you, I am

You may be


Someone I know

Or a stranger

You may be Him

How can I know?


And I realize

“You,” are in all

Every touch I give

Every heart I know


I am Yours.

In This Time


I find myself here

Never by choice

As no one does


Day to day

Arise and we do

What we must


I often question

What I have become

And I try to trust


That I am guided

By some hand

Knowing what I was


This turn of the wheel

Pray I clean the slate

Of what I am


Retribution is harsh

Yet I accept the price

And do as I must


Joy is within this

Life as it is

This game of trust


And I bow now

To one who was

Always, a better man.

The Dark Night


We all know it

Have felt it

Have lived it


The Dark Night


No matter what we do

Never enough

And we recede to


The Dark Night


We do our best

Give our all

Our life divest to


The Dark Night


One day, just once

We may see

Clearly, just once


The Dark Night


And John knew it

Falling down, down

It is okay, really


Within the Dark Night


When you do

You finally see

Finally understand


Within the luminous night


That you are fine

You have always been

We have always been


In Pure light


So, we do what we do

With understanding

We are still here


We are light


And we accept, all

Because we are all

And we live


We always have


And the Crucifixion is

A simile, a guide in life

What we die to; this


Because we are


We die to averice, to need

We die to the past

We live, we live, we live


Because we have always been

But we have forgotten. _/|\_



The Custodians



We were given a gift

The world to command

All Wisdom in our hands


If the World was without us

How would it be less?


We were gifted the One

Self-aware and absorbed

Yet we are so blind


Ego raised to an art

A World set apart

And we raped it all


The world without Man

Nature’s balance

As it was planned


What was the gift

We gave?

What did we offer?


If we never were

Life would have endured

Ensured as designed


Yet we were, we are

Lost in ourselves

Until the bitter end
