Phenomenon

 

What light has this soul found among the darkness;

what glimmer of hope for me,

for if I wish upon this star

for peace on earth for all alike

and struggle with my own…

The Waters of the Soul

The waters of the soul are deep and wide;

Few know how deep and wide they are.

To traverse them takes great courage.

Time and empathy often reward the human spirit

But it is Soul Work that results in depth of character.

Oh, the water is wide...

Yet I must still cross over

Swim deep

Dive into the…

THE BALLAD OF HARRY PALMS

THE BALLAD OF HARRY PALMS

His life was sweet no more because

His job two years ago

Was lost in economic storm.

Now, he was out of dough.

 

The winter came to reap his shame,

Unwelcome as…

Sleighs And Stars

 

 

Sleighs And Stars

 

We look to sky for sleighs and stars

and wonder what is myth or truth

much easier to have belief

when we were all but simple youth

however busy in our lives…

Odd Partners

 

Odd Partners

 

Snowmen often follow when they dance

it seems it comes from indecision,

never knowing where to go

to blend in with that scene of snow;

 

so as I frolic in the…

In Lieu of the Princess's Departure

In search of what we do not know

desire what we cannot know

she seeks strange desires inflames.

Strange is the only life I’ve known.

 

When I was young

I thought for sure

Some girl would marry me

And we’d be happy.

 

I didn’t know

evils in this world,

tasks of aging disease death.

Under duress I vowed

 

to be good boy

Most of the time I’m scared.

Life is risky.…

The Fire Barrel Carols

 

 

The Fire Barrel Carols

 

Hoboes gather Christmas Eve

somewhere near the iron rail

singing songs around the fire barrel;

songs of gladness, songs of joy

which touched each, as a little…

Try To Imagine

 

A quiet night beneath the winter sky

clear view of stars which light the night;

fresh understanding of how small we really are

but peace comes in the knowing God is near,

as some men sigh for want of…

Words

It's 3 o'clock in the morning here and I can't sleep.  A dear friend of mine once wrote that "The problems of the world are huge. None of us can solve them all. We are all mostly busy dealing with the minutiae of our own daily existence." As deeply disturbed as I am by recent events, neither my outrage nor my prayers can undo them. 

My friend also wrote that "love is all there is," so that's what I'm going to focus on.  These words are for him.…

Empty Mittens

Empty Mittens



no hands for empty mittens,

no snow can cover up such pain;

insanity, a bitter rain



young faces lost

before the miracle of time

has had them open up

life’s wonderful experiences



tragedy hangs from fireplaces

instead of colored stockings

blessed with treats



we try to understand

but there is not an answer…

Winter Pond

Winter Pond

Once, a frozen lagoon
where we cut the ice with steel
gliding on our way
in a wintry, white December
so long ago;
old, used days
all pave the way of memories
and there remain a group of boys
who gamed plus chased the girls
as we skated on.
