When Darkness Falls

The moon slides peeling the orange sun.
Seaward seagulls sign a truce of silence,
But cricket has not read the script
And bowls a babble to bats leaving crease

No Tears For Me

Stare not at tongues of flame and cry.
I do not burn nor did I die.
I am the blessed breeze that blows
The precious pearl that holds its glows;

Vicious and twisted like a tornado
And blinded by some 'sacred book',
Planning destruction of the infidel,

The Journey

Into the drizzle rays and peppermint wind
You rise celestial
Into the cycle of death and rebirth
You rise celestial
...

The Spirit Moves

The Spirit that sparks my veins moves my soul
Moves my mind like a meteor in arc
Is my Great Flame.
And I am engulfed by White radiance
