A Flowering Bouquet - with audio


The world is turning, 
Tropical stream and arctic breath, 
Skies cajoling

Thoughts colliding, 
Melodies, vespers buffeting, 
Strings tangled, reminding

Of life's foibles, 
Frailties, fractures, failures, 
Lumps, lows, longings, limits

Straining, struggling, 
Sinking, seeking 
For fearfully forgiven moments

But a voice 
Awakening, reverberating, 
Calling from within

Speaks tenderly 
Quiet words, why so sad, 
For healing has come

Once more in love, 
Be calm, be still, rest, 
A pillar in the temple of praise

Made right, set aside to serve, 
Be satisfied with this, 
Lay down and rise

Radiate, illuminate, 
Cast a beacon 
In the cold and stony night

To the silent passing vessels 
Finding safe harbor 
By the saving light

Avoiding the rocky path 
In the crash 
Of uncertain blinding seas

On riptide's flow, 
Beneath the striking hand 
Of the wind's chilling cries

At once red flames appear 
Surrounding, springing up 
From the wet rocks and sandy ground

Climbing ever higher in the round, 
Cooling and refreshing, 
Light without sound

All cares fading, burning 
In the many tongued array, 
Regrets, sorrows, dark clouds give way

Burdens in the fiery ring rising, 
Calm descending, Peace 
Arriving this new day

Free, free once more to join 
In the Pegasus flight, on a river 
Of the heavens’ cascading tides

Together with Myriad Choruses 
Of creation's voices shining 
With the sun in the highest heights

Speeding across the fabric 
Of pulsing, glowing mystery, 
Called by eternity, majesty and family

A flowering bouquet, 
Whispering fragrant blessings, 
Dropping thankful petals lovingly

With each falling star 
Brightly vanishing

And every spark 
Never ending.

Behold The Jewel of Love - with audio

audio link

As the beating yellow flower descends
A wandering heart is questioning
Boldly asking of the wind 
Will it ever come again

Lost in the brightness of your gaze
Beneath the curling ringlet tresses
Fleeting eyes cannot amend or rescind
The glowing embers sown deep within

Bound in cords of truth and desire
Locked in the breast's red chamber
As nights advance of darkness comes 
Will the fates be undone

A limited soul of clay and blood 
Can never really be quite sure
Of fire hidden by the violet night
Save the cheek blanketed in silky warmth

Lips pressed earnestly in softly burning zeal
Spirits soaring along the rainbow's seal
Against lighting dashing and thunderous peal
Stardust radiating in unseen auroras expanding

Lost together dreaming embracing
Curse of the lonely, away now drifting
Arms reach out caressing, holding and enfolding
A passing eternity of jasmine kisses blossoming
Ringed by the burnishing flames
Are two made golden, molten
Smelted, tested ore of the furnace
In the white heat made pure, becoming one

The humming worlds resound
Comets laugh and planets sigh
Oceans bringing up the tides
Greeting the moonbeams' shine

Fading stars twinkling, blinking
Morning calls out to turtledove
Gone aloft in the depths of Feeling, 
Are lovers flying wide in thought

The pulsating affection of the sun
Rises to rule the heavens once again 
Glorious is his raging chariot throne
While we mere mortals have become

Somewhere high, high above  
The treasure now revealed
Hands clasped tightly together
Behold the Jewel of love.

In The Sky I see Your Face - with audio


The good old sun keeps a burning burning burning
The dancing world keeps on turning turning turning
Little feet run and fly returning, returning
Home after a day of youthful play

And in the sky I see your face
Eyes so true, your quiet loving voice
Lives intertwine, love’s sweetest wine
Mountains grey, oceans blue, lead to you, so fine

The birds they sing whistling, chirping calling
Above the orange blossoms budding, blooming falling
Insects and creatures creeping, restless, crawling
Colorful, black and grey, in the green and brown

And in my heart I call out to you
Your embrace in the grace of morning dew
The touch of your hand so soft and kind
Resting on the horizon, soaring in my soul and mind

And if the Sun and sky flee away
The stormy clouds come take away the day
I’ll search the moon and stars in the night
Till I find away to make it right

On highest waves and in oceans deep
From darkest forest to highest mountains keep
Until the winds kiss this life with your name
And you rest here in these arms once again

Oh what ever in the world can I do
But to keep on forever loving you
All of the goodness this old world can bring
Is wrapped up in your love so I sing

The good old sun keeps a burning burning burning
The dancing world keeps on turning turning turning
Little feet run and fly not returning, not returning
Gone away from home after a wedding day of play

But high above the warm sun is brightly, finely, shining
The spinning world keeps on grinning, beaming, smiling
Rose petal blushes crimson, beckoning, and beguiling
In the days, stars and moon, love is music, bride and groom

And in the sky I see your face
Deep in love, a gentle secret place
Hearts intertwine, sweetest heavenly design
Oceans swell, Mountains climb, I am yours as you are mine

The good old sun keeps a burning burning burning
This dancing world keeps on turning turning turning
Little feet run and fly returning, returning
Home after a day of youthful play

And in the sky I see your face
Eyes so true, your quiet loving voice
Lives intertwine, love’s sweetest wine,
Earth and sky, Rainbow’s hue, can it be true, that you are mine

Tired - with audio

audio link

I’m tired
Tired of the heat
Need an ice cold treat
I’m tired and I’m beat

Tripping through my world
Angry at all who I meet

I need to retreat
Speaking thoughts, not discrete
Can’t walk on my feet

Falling on the curb
Face in the concrete

I’m announcing defeat
Hiding under the sheet
And my work’s not complete

Tumbling down the stairs
Right out into the street

What can I say
What shall I speak

Please just excuse me
Friend I’m feeling weak

Too tired to respect you
So tired, just had to repeat

Please let me find a cool night
So I can lay in some sleep

Fret Not Little Bird - with audio

audio link
Fret not little bird and hear the true word that all will be well in the dell
Join those in the field a blossomed little world, where the sky doth rest upon the tel
Trust in the one who made the earth and sun, with the seeds, and the trees, and the fruit
With a purpose, we suppose, for the bee and the rose, and for you and your lovely recruit

So swell up with song for the light doth shine strong and the way is clear above in the wide and blue
With sweet blessings falling in the breezes that come a calling, bringing flight to me and to you.
dedicated to the nini kid for sweet happiness and blessings always. 2017
