The rain is coming soon

To wash away the dust

And all will be renewed

And once again I’ll trust

The dry was in my mouth

It took away my voice

But when the river floods

Again I’ll state my choice

So now I sit and wait

I watch for heavy cloud

The past must be destroyed

Then future is allowed

The coming storm will break

And I will leave the shell

And in the fresh I’ll start

My wander to the well



Too tired to cry too sad to laugh

She sits and waits no expectation

Too young to be without a dream

Her life is tendered resignation

One night she gave up all she had

Too high the cost of assignation

Not knowing there’s no second chance

With man who only loved libation

So many months have passed since then

And soon will finish her gestation

The swollen woman left behind

To bear the weight of his creation

Into a world not innocent

Unwanted and unloved relation

The child protesting at its fate

With howling cry of indignation

The memory

In difference we are similar

Unique is commonplace

But I remember all of you

How time had lined your face

The moment was an age ago

But memory is fresh

The conversation to and fro

The thoughts allowed to mesh

We passed and life it parted us

We both have travelled far

And yet I feel you here with me

And I am where you are

In distance we are ever close

I feel your eyes meet mine

And though each moment is unique

We’re never lost in time


Empty street is where I’m driving

Destination still unknown

Traffic light on path less taken

Far away and yet I’m home

I remember life before was

Roundabout and indirect

So I ran and left you standing

Taking just my self respect

Many ask me how I manage

Solitary on my way

But no longer in confinement

Freedom has a price to pay

Onward journey I’m departing

Ever moving never still

Won’t be numbed in colder comfort

Driven by an iron will

The moment

If you can take a moment from your day

Allow yourself the time to deeply breathe

And you will find the troubles that can weigh

May lighten and then ultimately leave

Experience the joy in being now

No thought of what has passed or is to come

The time is yours whenever you allow

The things you need to do will still get done

Imagine if you did this every day

To slip into the moment and to feel

Experience your self another way

The power’s in yourself to mend and heal

The breath of life so simple and so pure

And in the moment you need nothing more


Falling flowers

Scatter on the grass

Trembling bowers

Autumn comes to pass

Spring remembered

Winter overdue

Soon dismembered

Nothing ever new

Summer lightened

Bright the fleeting days

Senses heightened

Separating ways

Oh my lover

Take a different route

Then discover

Blossom comes to fruit
