DON'T PITY THE TEARS, LOVE

There is a mirror in every droplet
of water in the world
but never has one rendered a reflection
as perfect as it should

It isn't to rain's discredit
that its movement does distort
the image given to it
but gravity and it's nature
against it do consort

The picture of the mountains
majestic as they have been
since ages immemorial
are gathered eagerly by the mist
and then are never seen

Likewise the image of your eyes
so radiant, so blue
are gathered by your many tears,
hid by their tender pools,
and guarded by their jealousy
they blur both light and hue

Don't pity the tears, love
for their bend is not on greed.
The light that e'er they gather
though hiding your eyes from me
speak of you as of a creed

THE GLADE



in a glade
in the wood
it is warm
it is dry
by a stone
with a nook
I collapse
there I lie
looking up
toward the clouds
seeing through
the trees' bows
a cloud passes
the sun shines
my eyes close
I lay still
warmth enfolds
sweet rest
surrender

TIME MAY CHANGE

time may change
and heart
and mind
the body age
decay and slow
but soul
it stays
and it is yours
yours to have
yours to hold

tongue may turn
joy to pain
warmth to cold
the thought away
from home
but still
my soul is yours
yours to have
yours to hold

guided footsteps
led astray
fled away
stumble past
will steadfast
and yet
my soul is yours
yours to have
yours to hold

UNTITLED

O, that passion cease!
indellible curse!
drving me into the ground
subverting my will

still, when bridled,
when fitted,
what a race those passions run!
surpassing in virtue
reason itself

FLIGHT OF THE FAERIE QUEEN

on her guilded wings
as she softly sings
she flees from her beloved groom
her path unsure
his heart t'allure
so she fled him by the light of the moon


on his spited brow
sweat and sorrow now
as he follows his timid bride
his love for her
will e'er endure
though he himself would have longed to hide


in this sacred night
these two souls took flight
one to test, one to prove his love
yes this faerie queen
and her swift-winged king
played at love to the coo of the dove


'til by fate's degree
near the holy tree
her love caught her and held her tight
no, no more pure desire
could heav'n conspire
than these two lovers were granted that night

TWENTY-TWO MOMENTS LATER

Twenty-two breathless moments later
confusion strikes again.
Why is it that only through
the pain of life
can one heart be made of two?

Forked tongues take the place of endless
struggles to find the truth.
All of a sudden we fall
and believe it,
that life itself is empty.

Curses for the trusted parties now,
and deafness to the cries
of one heart to another,
and to ourselves:
"Yes! All the pain is worth it."

ETERNITY

silent in the night alone
fortune
ne'er a minute-mind giv'n
all to gift
bounty, leaven
providence
no right bestowed
merely
every grace endowed
single, separate
unity
faith that binds
flesh
mind
spirit
eternity

TODAY THE WORLD IS NEW

Today the world turned white
convulsing, it gave birth to new life
sighing, it told the story of man's existence
gazing headlong into the sun,
it revealed the meaning of all things
in the pools of it's eyes

Today the world was cleansed
falling, it carried the weight of guilt
rising, it shed guilt's awful burden
reaching for truth the unchanging,
it found the whole of the universe
trembling in awe of it

Today the world is new

FROM THE WORLD OF MEN

Light no more the candles
those testaments to my existence
let them pass
as I have
from the world of men

Burry my memory
your rememberence of my feeble life
erase me
as I was
from the world of men

ABANDON

As I reach the depths of my soul
I come across an emerald valley
And look for a place to rest my head
For weary am I from my journey

I find amidst the flow'r-capped hills
And meadows ever gently rolling
A tree that shared my weathered look
There will I find my comfort waiting

Upon the ground, moss grown and soft,
The body I have nurtured now lies
And free from anger, strife and pain
Receives my loved ones' mournful cries
