Freedom

August 10, 2013 Leave a comment

Like a heart
gliding in the sky
Blowing my own trumpet
Like an elephant
I would love to fly
upon a rainbow
Listening to the sound of a violin
Matching colour and sound
Drive a Volkswagen
Rather than lie on a sofa
And have my dinner
At a Californian restaurant
I look with awe at the rising waves
And fear grips me
Then I look up towards the sky
flooded with stars
Through a canopy
Of cloud-kissing redwood trees

Ode to Nature

February 9, 2011 3 comments

The morning sun in all its glory
Is smiling through  pine trees
Mountains kiss the snow-white clouds
And birds soar  towards the heavens

Fields of multi-coloured tulips beckon
The honey bees buzzing by
The sound of the cascading waterfall
Calling to the river below

Wild grass swaying in the passing breeze
And radiant butterflies fluttering by
A frisky squirrel nibbling nuts
And cows grazing listlessly in the pasture

The sweet stream trickles in calm delight
Guiding rainbow fishes along
And water lilies shyly dance
Their leaves glisten in the light

I drink in the sights and sounds
And my heart feels light
Transfixed, I stand and gaze in wonder
Amazed at natures splendour!

Peace

December 9, 2010 2 comments

The ubiquitous lust for power
Constant strife and discord
War, discontent,  terror and arson
The constant rhetoric and finger pointing
Arms race and nuclear buildup
Bloodshed and broken rubble
Shuffle like images in a kaleidoscope

The fleeting dove has lost its way
In this illusory maze
Deluded in anger , lust and envy
Its vision is blurred
Seeking the rainbow -utopian and ephemeral
The naive man rushes outward
Hidden in his own bosom
Is the lasting peace he seeks
