Day 312

I Return At Night

 

I return at night

from the fastidious journey

Transported me body and mind

To realms wholly unknown

I lost all hope and will to live

Walking through

Darkening clouds descend

Pelting my feeble body

with icy balls of wrath

and drowning me in grief

 

I return at night

Cold, wet, and miserable

Emerging from the raging tempest

outside

enter a new arena to face the tempest

inside myself

seeking little help with even less hope

 

I return at night

I – who see symbols in all things

take these scissors to my head

in an attempt to murder

who I was for a greater birth to come

With each snip change progresses onward

Day 311

Musings Of The Night

 

Delicate matters of an austere

truth

– delirious mind abetted by karmic

wisdom

 

Pristine remnants of our broken

dreams

– infections wounds formed by flawed

visions

 

Fruitful functions of the capable

body

– faithful habits settle the muddied

water

 

Delicious smile of the watchful

clock

– sublime thoughts sojourns our languid

time

Day 310

When I Wasn’t Ready

 

I wasn’t ready

when she came into my life

lifting my spirits

with a lasting hope and care

No, I wasn’t there

at all when she came to me

entering my conscious heart

 

I wasn’t ready

when she got up and left me

Replacing hope with

a melancholic despair

Taking with her joy

that we had nourished and grew

into everlasting peace

 

Now I am ready

with everyone departed

Standing by myself

I look out into the dark

hoping to see light

where once was a blaze burning

through the stifling darkness

 

Now I stand pleading

return the inspiration

that you freely gave

aiding me in my quest for truth

Please come back to me

my muse and restore visions

that inculcate me to write

Day 309

The Time Traveler

 

There lies within

A devious time traveler

capable of elevating passions

and dragging hopes down to fate

 

There lies within

a brochure of life

showing delights in happiness

and pains from dangerous pitfalls

 

There lies within

recordings of delicate songs

praising life with a joyous heart

and begging for relief with a deprecated soul

 

There lies within

a mischievous accountant

subtracting all the precious moments

and adding pain with a delicious sneer

 

There lies within

A malevolent time traveler

taking us where we direct our thoughts

by imposing opinions on factual remembrances

Day 308

What I Am

 

I am

the empty vase

ornate and beautiful

– divorced from my purpose

 

I am

the last thread

frayed and bare

– stretched and wearing thin

 

I am

the shattered mirror

sharp, and clear

– reflection a distorted truth

 

I am

the dirty dishrag

used and neglected

– working without acclaim

Day 307

Sunday Morning

 

Sunday morning when people go to church

I neglect my duties to sit beneath a birch

Musing aloud that God was not to be found

Attending mass with Nature living all around

So I looked towards the heavens sitting idly by

Watching the clouds pass through the cerulean sky

Listening to the birds sing joyfully all day

I lounge in the shade accepting the thoughts that stray

To find myself lost within a thought’s trance

I see myself at market where ideals sell chance

– ” How much is a bushel of your finest holy love?”

“A life of devotion to the beloved sitting above.”

-” And what is the price for a basket of pride

“That’s a steep cost that even death cannot hide.”

“Can I offer you some kindness, maybe an ear or two?”

“That and tender humility for life’s trust is true.”

Leaving the market, I find myself once more

Musing beneath the tree of life grasping at truth’s core

Breathing fresh air in the fields of God’s holy sight

I fuse together beauty with life’s brilliant light

Day 306 part 2

Hearts And Minds 

 

Within your mind is a generous magnet

Attracting, Pulsating, Imbuing rapid wishes

Within my soul is an honest desire

Compelling, Detailing, Containing empathy’s wish

Within our hearts burns the lover’s candle

Kindling, Lighting, Igniting passions to soar

 

There is a subtle beauty within my mind

Dwelling, Propelling, Prompting me forward

There is a transparent truth within your soul

Burning, Baptizing, Purifying the living realms

There is a mystical love within our hearts

Blending, Molding, Forming the path of life

 

There is a curious spark within your eye

Intriguing, Confusing, Drawing my heart to yours

There is a tireless energy within my acts

Jumping, Running, Walking always to you

There is a divine force within our hearts

Pumping, Contracting, Pulsating love to the world

 

Within your graceful spirit I yearn to live

Contented, Sated, Joyful filled with amour

Within my exuberant thoughts I rightly swim

Dancing, Prancing, Playing with every subtle stirring

Within our diligent hearts a flower blooms

Pollinating,  Creating, Endowing beauty in life
