The Little Things

Thank the Lord for the little things of life
When you cuddle up in bed;
For the places you've been and the things that you've seen
And the thoughts inside your head.
...

Omnipresence

You are everywhere.
Glowing in the rays of the sun of a brand new day;
Sparkling in the dew on the grass and fresh mown hay.
You are everywhere.

Carpe Diem

There is so little time to spare
In a world that whizzes round
At the speed of light, the giddy light
Blinding the eyes and mind.
...

Ad Aeternum?

When will time erode my pain
And give me peace to live again
Without the sense of gradual death
That hampers each lung-breaking breath?
...

Snow Wolves

White fanged wolves
Echo arctic winds
Across the shifting white
Of dreamless, dawnless nights;
...

16.
Opening Time

Little drops of water,
Little drops of rain,
Freshen up the wayside flowers
And makes them breath again.
...

17.
St Lawrence's Eve

Stars
hang from the heavens.
Cosmic fruit
waiting to be plucked.
...

Visitor

He came from the west
Ebony wings gliding
Upon the Surazon.
A silhouette at noon
...

Surviving

There is a pain that sucks the life blood
Out of my very veins
And drags my strangled spirit
From my heart's bombed out remains.
...

20.
Puppy Love

Puppies prance across my life,
My art, furniture, clothes and shoes
Then wriggle, paws in air,
Wondering what else there is to do.
