Stories from the Past

With fear and trepidation I slip in,
The screams of mystery wash ore,
Ghostly stories of times long past,

There is pain here, suffering, yearning,
Tension fills the very air, I need to know,
Carefully listening, I need hear their voice,

In opening myself, visions begin to flow,
Odd bits spread across the floor bring hints,
Dimmest of light glimmers, bringing focus import,
Understanding comes slow, brief glimmers revealed,

So lost, so hidden, yet meaning comes to mind,
And with meaning the hidden brings understanding,
So, relaxed, I sit back, take it all in, and begin to learn,
Only need patience, resisting judgment, and simply allow,

Still We Seek

The One that can be spoken is not the eternal One,
The name w use for the Named is not the eternal Name,
The nameless is the origin of all the Heavens and Earth
The named is the Mother and Father of myriad things,
Thus, constantly without desire, one observes its essence,
Constantly with desire, one only observes its manifestations,
These two emerge a union together, but differ in their names,
The unity itself is said to be the mystery we all seek,
Mystery of all,mysteries, the door to all wonders,

Smoke and Wine

This mind numbing Calliope of silence,
Echoing shadows dancing across my world,
Unanswered questions no longer seeking light,
Is this it, all that is left to me, the end of my dreams,
Optimistically turning from the gloomy trend,
I take another drink, light anther fag,
And dose with a sheepish smile…

Shining Soul

As my memories wane and fail,
The vision of your beauty grows,
As I knew the joyous young child,
I can now see a mature loving women,
Imagination fills the greatest gaps of time,
I perceive the happy times, the struggles, family,
Rewarding path of bringing the children to bloom,
Satisfaction at a job well done, life well lived fully,

I envy you my dear old friend…

Take Hold

Oh dear baby,
This be your time,
Step forward to soar,
Sweat Butterfly’s flight,
Power of your very soul,
Demonstration of your grace,

Capricious as a fairy,
Tenacious liken the eagle,
Desirous to fly to lifelong goal,
Journey across the whole of world,
Yet held hostage by the status whole,

Caged within my own skin,
Held back and denied peace,
Good intentions and rulers all,
Protectors be wardens of all life,

They continue to doubt,
Restrain us dispersiveness,
Unflappable your God given wings.
But, inside your heart building and stirring

you already know
One hell of a force calls you to act,
Float like the butterfly sting like the bee,
Reclaim your throne my dear Queen,

Believe in yourself again,
As if you yourself were Peter Pan,
Once more conquering Never-land,
Don’t over think it, right here, right now,
You have everything you will ever need,

Never go without a thing from fear of losing it,

Easy…

Living In Bliss

Past life is but a memory,
Hours flying past now gone,
Like transitory dreams given o’er,
Whose images are kept in store,
Not but visions left untold,
All to come is not,
How can I make it be mine,
These present moment’s of import,
Too fast gone as if never got,
Present be our holiest era.
Then talk of inconstancy,
False hearts, and broken vows,
Hold to the miracle of what can be,
This very minute true for thee,
‘Tis all that Creation allows…

As It Should Be

Enemies we are not,
Though the pulpit insists,
Enemies we are not,
Though many spread hate,

Enemies we are not,
Though a love goes sour,
Enemies we are not,
We can contain our pain,

Enemies we are not,
Even though not the same,
The best of you of lives in me,
The best of me lives in you,

If we but learn to forgive ourselves,
We will be able to forgive anyone,
