The sun sinks slowly below the distant horizon. The voice of the songbirds becomes still as day turns into night. A warm silence pervades the earth And surrounds it in a blanket of ebony. I am alone with my thoughts; My eyes gaze into a welcoming nothingness; And as I project myself into space The dark is left behind And there is only light.
Together we'll fly through time and space to Paradise, The silver threads of our wing-tips touching Our minds attune, and your fingers clasped in mine Twin souls with one identity Loved, and loving throughout Eternity.
I close my eyes And what do I see? Colors staring back at me. Purples, yellows, reds and blues And flashing lights of brilliant hues. My mind is a kaleidoscope with patterns ever-changing. Oblongs, squares and triangles with circles and arches ranging, alongside diamonds, spades, clubs and hearts and myriads of tiny darts, dipping their way in and out. Now here, now there, just flashes of quicksilver, jet propelled by unseen hands, The completed scene, a fairyland.
The fires of my imagination Were lit by a magic hand And I found myself walking through wonderland. There were marble fountains everywhere In which golden angels were washing their hair. The sound of their laughter tinkled like bells, And overhead, heavenly music swelled. Then two clouds parted to form a doorway Through which came cherubs with garlands of may. As I watched, they slid down ropes of gold Then turned moonbeams out of a silver mould Which they used for skates They raced past me and disappeared through pearly gates. I reached out to touch them but released instead a shower of stardust which fell on my head, And surrounded me in a silver cocoon, And I felt again the warmth of the womb. A voice called my name I came back with a start My gaze was drawn to a gleam at my feet. There lay a tiny silver heap... ...of stardust.
My heart cries out The wind in answer Blows the Autumn leaves Across the window of my mind. My life's in tatters The rags of my pride falling round my feet. All the yesterdays are wasted like today's dreams, There are no tomorrows Only miles and miles of emptiness.
Above dark trees in silvery glow The moon outshines all earthly light Two lovers stand, their lips in accord Triumphant in the silence of the night. A fountain surges up and swirls Then sprinkles beads of pearl drops rare Adding a magic to this love A moment's dream, that two hearts share. Soon night fades and dawn appears, The lovers have gone, the park silent, still May the joy of this young love live on And their future years, with magic fill.
My Guiding Light
Do you know about inner peace? It's what you have when troubles cease Your yesterdays have passed away And you hold in your hand The power of today. My angels are my guiding light They're at my side, both day and night To watch me, ere I go astray, And light my path along life's way.
It is summer in the valley I come in search of you The sound of rippling waterfalls Echo down the silent glen The water is warm And shimmers in the sunlight. At twilight, I reach your forest Nestling like a contented babe between twin peaks. You ask for nothing, but I can see the golden aura that surrounds you. You have become docile like the animals you have tamed. Forgotten is the way back I have become like you, A piece of driftwood floating, lost.
Two hearts united Growing within each other Emitting understanding and warmth Love is pure and precious Eternal and everlasting Two souls embracing each other with tenderness and hope Sharing and giving Living and loving Throughout all Eternity.
The world is still and beautiful I stand on the seashore, one with all things And turn my enraptured gaze toward the distant horizon Where she has just come into view Radiant in a cloak of pure gold Now tinged with red and orange. She slowly rises, her image reflected in the waiting sea. My heart fills with reverence as I behold her golden splendour I bathe with sensuous pleasure in the magnetic energy she radiates. My body and soul at peace with creation. Soon she merges and becomes one with space The brilliance of her face blinding these mortal eyes But the glow around my heart warms me.
My soul is an oasis In the desert of my mind Where I stop to quench my thirst And reflect on all mankind. The knowledge that I gain there Enables me to grow So I can bloom, then drop my seed For those who wish to know. The wonders of the Universe Are for all who want to see The golden path to Paradise Belongs to you and me.
Stand in the light, never in the dark, For only in the light is perfect understanding. As the night closes in, a new world of light blossoms forth. The heavens are alight with a pearly glow that reflects itself in my soul.
Universal man is but a husk Which harbours the most beautiful part of him; The Soul. Man lives in stages, seven in all. If aware at completion, He'll get the call.
What is time? We work to it. We play to it, and we waste it. Now it is quicksilver! Its quickness eludes us. It is as old as the hills and yet belongs to the future. It is something I hope one day, to be; It is Immortal.
