Resonance of a passing year

The resonance of a passing year
Gradually her echo is all that’s left
Her strong words fade to the nothing of black
So too the hopes and dreams that came with the pack
Through it all we had our moments
Yet some days were better spent in bed
Like an ostrich
Head buried under the duvet
shying away from reality behind my door
yet the battle sounds sipped through the space beneath
But all old things like the dead are better remembered in the light of Their good
The moments we wished would last forever
And the people that painted them bold
It’s been a long road
These words say it all
Even though we wear the scars of battles fought
Having life at whatever cost is all the victory we need
Change is never an easy thing
The new and the anxiety it brings
But to that I raise my glass in toast
That the new will be kind and the lessons of the old be gold
Happiness will call us by our name
Success will teach us a new dance
And love will learn to stay. 

SILOS

The silos of the heart

Where all precious and lost can be found

Thier ghost gather emotions like dust

Often regret is no intruder

her company qualifies the antiquity of certain items

We continue to magically make room

As long as we live

For nothing good has been known to last

Life changing words to love lost out at the open seas of life

Her turbulence arrogantly takes credit for the sinking of many ships

Thier sailing days may be over but their wreckages remain

Amidst the laughter and tears,

The retired and the wrecked

I too find a spot

Time spent here may be lost

But the allure of the past pulls with invisible grasps and calling voices

I should pull up a chair

Sometimes life is not about ambition but recollection

Treasures of accomplishment,regret,faces,places and feelings

All locked away behind these thick concrete walls

For fear they get lost and we forget who we are,

A sum of our past and the ones that loved us are all we are

After all tomorrow was never promised

The Art of Heart

Winning is one end of the game

loosing is it’s evil twin

I could stare at this cards all day,

put them down and walk away

Or simply play

Mistake it for madness

I call it the art of heart

Every choice is a single card from a pack you don’t own

Play with all at stake

Life is a night out in Las Vegas

Loose to a debt paid in full only at death

I’ll take my chance at winning

The after taste of it’s reward lingers even on the tongue of others

I’ll take a pocket full of heart any day

For to live in fear is to never know

In the end,only to find out one was short changed by the machine of life

Over The Shadow Of Doubt

With darkness thick as a loaf

In harsh whispers it fills my ears with lies

In all it’s prophecies non favors me

With threats to eclipse the golden ring of my sun

To leave me reaching out in fear at nothing but pitch black

Constricted by the fear of my next step

But I know better

Those days are long gone my old friend

I was a boy then,courting ambition in hope of a perfect romance

When you first wooed me

How your first blow struck void of compassion

And with each passing one,a louder plea for mercy I gave

Those days are gone my friend

Funny you should drop by

But as you can see I’ve moved on

I found confidence a better lover

With the passing years the scars led us into each other’s arms

It was clear you and I never had a future

Music of the night

Music in the night

Distant like the moon light

Yet behind those dark clouds your light shine bright

You sing me gently to sleep like a mother to her babe

Your words say tomorrow will be better 

And it streets Finner

You tell me to take heart

That today’s defeat was not a loss but a lesson

My body finds sleep but my spirit is awakened like a tended fire

Your words say I’m strong and good 

That failure is common to every man so is success

That life is beautiful

Although sometimes it may scare you

Like thunder on a stormy night

But the loudest things don’t have the greatest strength

For fear is the gate keeper to new beginnings

Your world is never what your eyes see but what your mind dreams and your heart believes

Dream your tomorrow into existence

You may loose it all but never loose faith

For it’s seed sprout life itself

Love is easy but it’s price is pretty stip

If it wasn’t then every fool will afford it

And it’s value will be lost

Never be too lazy to learn

For knowledge is the boat that gets you to the other side

Your size is never a limitation

Ask the ants and they will tell you so.

Mortal Music

 

My heart sways to the rhythm of life

Cosmic or spiritual,take a pick

It’s music of perfect precision, composed with cords of finest gold

With flawless notes of joy,sadness,love,loneliness,passion,apathy,birth and death

To her melodies,we become believers

In pursuit of conclusion to its seemingly endless story

Hoping to find truth

That with open arms it may greet us

And with enlightened minds,it may lift us

But while it plays,we listen but with troubled minds

Do we dance or just sit and listen

One thing is certain

Like everything with a beginning,sweet or sour

They all find an end.

Do we then morn in sadness of an expected end?

Or like the lovers of beautiful things that we are,enjoy the finest music.

The choice is ours,so is the end.

The Psalmist

In the arms of the one that calls me lover

An embrace not of hands but hearts

Calling out to the other in tongues of passionate fire

And unsung psalms chorused by each heart beat

That life may crown this creation eternal

That together decades will run into centuries

That it becomes the motto by which love is universaly proclaimed

Each feeding this little flame into a forest fire

Not only from miles away but for years to come,its flames will be seen

At its light the shadows of loneliness and poor self esteem flee

The world won’t say we left it nothing

Like Christmas,its joy will cross all religious,social and natural prejudice

Like the tree in the yard,every bird will find nesting

As our strong trunk backed by age will prove its possible

To love and be loved

To see self in another

To see nature and mother in her and she in me,the earth beneath her feet and the sky above her pretty crown.
