TRILLION WONDERS

a trillion wonders wake me soon
beguiling time and time again
in recompense i deftly swoon
to leave behind all hurt and pain
resisting nothing, ebb or flow
i ask to see and pray to know…

for none so fine as what would sing
in heartfelt open morning joy
be tempered not by man or thing
or what the base would soon destroy…
be nimble now in sacred shade
to honour what is eden made…

with growing numbers breaking chain
advances drawn and truth be told
a single time could soon remain
where none would leave, and none grow old…
no threat could do with sullen flame
the healing light, the lulling name…

to languish fair behind such gate
and wander down the paths of rite
a consecrated hint of fate
could keep the angels close at night
and wondrous questions, dashing deep
the sacred substitute for sleep…

in mortal thought a perfect storm
remained in sight, malign behest
where menace comes to speak the norm
through clever uninvited guest…
and wary be the soul tonight
who hides in mirth but deals in might…

for seeking true my wave is thrust
i find the drift and labour on
and even though i know i must
retreat at some whose veil is drawn
i have been tutored to revere
the trillion wonders present here…

BACK ON LINE

Well here we are back on the good ol’ net… I’ve given up on most social media for the past couple of years due to all the venom and hate. Certain people feel they “own” me and have the right to alter or “direct” my personal life and I just won’t stand around while that happens…hopefully here there’ll be some level of troll control and we can establish some friendly communication much the way it used to be in the “good old days”. If that gets jeopardized by certain people I guess it’ll mean leaving again. I know exactly who these people are and precisely where all the nonsense is directed, so there’s no hiding anymore. For now, I hope the friendly ones can all gather once more here and we can discuss many things as in the past.
The Writings Volume II is finished and will go to press very soon…47 poems in all and I honestly believe it’s a better collection than the first one. After numerous proof readings I’ve become very familiar with the pieces and I am quite proud of each and every one of them.
Once again we can discuss poetry, movies, music and many of the oddities of our Mother Earth, perhaps without the evil ones messing it all up again…
Peace and calm those who deserve and cherish it…
