Forever And Always

forever and always 2

The sea shore and the sea line,

Have seen and saw the stripped lines,

Of my dreams, that rolls with the rocks and sand,

That stands tall and rocks my world,

Dreams that are close to my heart,

Forever and Always.

 

The sand grains on the ocean floor,

Have swam in the rain of my tears,

The flowing rivers,

Have drank from my gourd of happiness,

The sparrows and the crows,

Have heard my distant whispers,

And they have flapped their wings,

In the wind of my silent wishes.

 

The scorching sun,

Has witnessed my sweat and hard work,

The moon and stars,

Have sang songs to drown my fears,

And as darkness fades, and morning draws nigh,

Beneath these dust and cobwebs,

Beneath these bits and pieces of a broken heart,

Lays a promise I intend to keep,

Forever and Always.

Thorns and Thrones

throne-and-thorns

Thorns and Thrones,

A beguiling facet,

A face of the past and the future,

Fact and Fiction, Dream and Reality,

Hope and Faith,

Thorns and Thrones.

 

So the preacher preached,

The teacher taught,

The alcoholic drunk, whiskey tots,

The wiser spanned, Wisdom thoughts,

And the dreamer…. Dreamt,

Dreams of Thorns and Thrones.

 

Thorns and Thrones,

For the head meant,

One for pain, the other, Reign,

For Kings and Queens,

And them too that believe,

The best is for their taking.

 

Thorns and Thrones,

Are all but a choice,

Same as War and Peace,

Love and Hate.

Life is,

Thorns and Thrones.

Light of Darkness

falling star

It was one of those late poetry nights,

Those nights you walk on deserted streets,

And words are company,

 Rhyme, doing a dance, One, Two, Many,

Dancing to music, only the heart understands.

It was one of those silent nights,

The moon was full,

 And stars myriad, Twinkled,

The crickets, chirped,

And frogs, with croaks, distant,

Joined in.

It was one of those nights,

That my heart leaped, and joy bubbled,

And in the dark of those nights,

That the lightning of love, struck me,

And its also in the light of that darkness,

That I lost you,

And Darkness Dawned.

These Beauties

the girls

The girls in my life, are poetry,

Endless lines of rhymes,

That tell of beautiful stories,

Skin tone, amazing,

Reflects the tone of poems,

That tell of heroes,

Who left their spears,

To lift fallen enemies.

The girls in my life,

A species rare, but not extinct,

Characteristics, distinct,

And like wine, ripe,

Beautiful with age.

The girls in my life,

Are music to the ears,

Their laughter, a resonating echo,

That resounds in the dark lonely moments,

Soothing balm to the heart,

Their hearts, are fountains of joy,

Like the sunrise, they are beautiful,

And like the sunset, calm and peaceful.

The girls in my life,

Are sisters and friends,

They love, passionately,

And care, deeply,

They are a blessing,

They are gems, gifts,

They are the best.

Dust in The Wind

Dust in the windRemember now your Creator in the days of your youth,

Before the difficult days come,

And the years draw near when you say, “I have no pleasure in them”

While the sun and the light,

The moon and the stars,

Are not darkened,

And the clouds do not return after the rain;

In the day when the keepers of the house tremble, And the strong men bow down;

When the grinders cease because they are few, And those that look through the windows grow dim;

When the doors are shut in the streets, And the sound of grinding is low;

When one rises up at the sound of a bird, And all the daughters of music are brought low.

Also they are afraid of height, And of terrors in the way;

When the almond tree blossoms, The grasshopper is a burden, And desire fails.

For man goes to his eternal home, And the mourners go about the streets.

Remember your Creator before the silver cord is loosed,

Or the golden bowl is broken,

Or the pitcher shattered at the fountain,

Or the wheel broken at the well.

Then the dust will return to the earth as it was,

And the spirit will return to God who gave it.

“Vanity of vanities,” says the Preacher,

“All is vanity.”
