Peace

Once Upon A Midnight Dove

Folder: 
Just a thought!

Once upon a Midnight Dove, I sold my soul for empty love.

A gentle touch made me shiver, my body shook, my nerves quiver.

 

Her skin so soft with silky hair, parchment kisses melt the air.

She pressed her tender frame to mine, body waving so devine.

Passion rose in sultry hips, the sweet caress of moistened lips.

Shallow breaths quickened fast, heartbeat shutters, swift and vast.

Beads of perspiration now, a single stream runs down my brow.

Muscles clinched in violent peace, giving up in sweet release.

A moment shared in empty love...Once upon a Midnight Dove'

Speak the Word

Speak the Word


Hope is a power,

An evil Devour.


Love is a song,

Steady and long.


Peace is a bird,

A flock above the herd.


Yet these Words will diminish,

Unless we do not Cower,

Unless we sound the Gong,

Unless we Speak the Word.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Sorry it was short. I made that one awhile ago and it really touched my heart.

Wandering Traveler

Come fellow travelers and wandering folks.

Come and hear a tale about ghouls and ghosts.

 

Come sit around the fire and warm your hands.

Come and share stories about distant lands.

 

Come drink my wine and laugh at my jokes.

Come and sing songs about dreams and hopes.

 

Come listen to the drum beat and dance on the sand.

Come and watch the moon in the night sky so grand.

 

For when the morning comes and we bid farewell.

There will be no more stories and tales to tell.

 

For you will continue on your travels , while I remain.

Never to sing songs and dance again.

 

My purpose fulfilled, I shall crawl and hide back in my shell.

A stranger to all, alone I shall dwell.

 

But through your stories , the world will know my name.

 

They will know about the stranger who dwells in the spiritual plane

Peace Among Humans

Folder: 
You|Society|Change

Peace among humans is a must

But all we share is a look of disgust

Disrespect and lack of trust

 

Peace among humans is there

So little, to find is very rare

But nobody seems to care

 

Peace among humans is wanted

But everyone is simply blinded

By hatred and frighten

 

Peace among humans is desired

From everyone who inspired

 

Other with love whom conspired

Peace Shall Come One Day

Folder: 
You|Society|Change

Peace shall come one day

 

Where we all unite

Stand on one side

The side of love and pride

There is nothing shameful to hide

 

Peace shall come one day

 

On a rainy day we share our coats

On a crisis we help others souls

When we lend a hand for everyone in need

Forgetting hatred and forgetting greed

 

Peace shall come one day

 

Where we support education

Education of knowledge and dedication

Where we learn of equality

Of peace and of sweet serendipity

 

Peace shall come one day

 

The day we open our minds

Accept people of all kinds

When we make our imaginations into reality

 Reality mistaken with fantasies 

 

Peace shall come one day

 

When our lives our ready to change

When we are ready to rearrange

Exchange love and behave

 

That day will be the save. 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Hopefully we will all come hand in hand to save the world for our selfishness and greed

Dance of the Dragonfly

Folder: 
2014

 

 

Large cup-shaped crater at the public gardens

Filled with water, lilies, and maiden grasses

Home to a family of ducks and koi, who

Swim gently under skipping water striders

 

A space free of predators. A protected habitat.

Ample time to watch the dragonflies dance

Above rippling water and wind-waved reeds

Pellets of food provided by hands outreached

 

When people have stopped their bustling

The sun’s hot rays have wrapped up the day

With Orion watching amid sparkling stars

On solid steady rock, I tuck my feet and head

 

Ease into a bowl-shaped slumber

Secure as protected unhatched egg

Peace

Solitude is peace.

 

You don’t have to listen to others.

 

When you’re alone,

 

You can shut out humanity’s corruption.

 

 

 

Nightfall holds no meaning.

 

If you’re at peace, let be.

 

Sunlight holds no meaning.

 

If you’re at peace, let be.

 

 

 

How peaceful it is to be alone.

 

To be alone is to meditate.

 

To meditate is to see truth.

 

To see truth is to be at peace.

 

 

 

You don’t have to listen to others.

 

A family isn’t needed for peace.

 

The light that lives inside,

 

You’ll see it even better when alone.

 

 

 

Reside alone with only the light.

 

With the light by your side,

 

You will feel no loneliness,

 

Only solitude, only peace.

 

 

 

If you seek the light,

 

You won’t find it in people.

 

If you seek the dark,

 

Finding the light will be easy.

 

 

 

If you find the light,

 

You won’t need people.

 

You’ll have the light,

 

And you’ll know peace.

 

 

 

Should you forget about people?

 

No, even though you don’t need them,

 

Remember this,

 

They might need you.

 

 

 

Live for peace.

 

Live knowing death.

 

All life dies, yet lives on.

 

Death comes and peace remains.

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I hope people can make some sense of what I was saying. Sometimes I just spill my emotions onto a page and end up not sure if it's even logical.

 

I felt like writing this because in the past few years I've dwelled on the darkness I see in myself and other people - the corruption. I see so much of it that I tend to lose sight of what's good. For a while I dwelled on the darkness and felt content with hatred. I hated the human race. I wanted to watch it die because in my mind everyone, including myself, deserved it. But now I've found peace in solitude and prayer/meditation. Even though I still easily see bad things in myself and other people I've become a little more numb to them. I'm more able to highlight the good things in people. I've done this by turning not to people themselves, but to something higher, much higher. I crave solitude and time alone so that I can reflect on this, and so that I'm not so sickened by the world around me.

Breakup of Success

Abandoned and afraid
Scared to death I fade
Exhausted and dejected
Anxiety to be expected

.........................................

Only you know what you’ve done
My heart strings toyed for fun
Convinced you’re worth the fight
I went sleepless night after night

.........................................

Lying to my face
I thought you needed space
****, I was wrong
With him now you’re strong

.........................................

Your decision to leave
But you led me to believe
With my heart full of affection
I believed in a re-connection

.........................................

I was too naive
Blind, she won’t deceive?
But now I see the clues
Just a firework with no fuse

.........................................

Bawling for days
Alone with God I praised
A chance to be redeemed
This is what I always dreamed

.........................................

Slowly I found the sun
Finally, it begun!
A path to become a man
God laid out my plan

.........................................

Engineered to perfection
I detached no more connection
Freedom long at last
Happiness unsurpassed

.........................................

I jostled for position
Ignited with ambition
Friends, family and new dates
My single life awaits

.........................................

A 180 degree transition
Now I’m on a mission
Jubilant life grows on
New beginning, I’m a pawn

.........................................

The spring of the upswing
Soon I’ll be a king
Bitterness in the past
Surprised by this contrast

.........................................

I rose up from the dust
Like a bomb I was combust 
The fire burned inside
Leaping I found my stride 

.........................................

This poem a rendition 
Interpret with conviction
For I have found the way
Forever I will stay

 

FRAMES OF REDEMPTION

 

You bring out the colors in my world

Like the perfect frame

On a beautiful painting

 

The blues are so deep

The reds so alive

You make colors emerge

That could never be seen before

 

Fragrant like a melody

Soft like a tapestry

Woven together by hope

 

Rejected for so long

Yet unabated you flow

Through the crevices in my heart

Redeeming a broken girl

Moving past the graven walls

Built to protect her

From the very love

That would make her free

 

Like water carving beauty into rock

Gently smoothing the surface

Uncovering soothing layers of calm

Hidden beneath roughly hewn stone

 

Through rhythmic currents of tenderness

And the unceasing tide of understanding

You reveal me

And for the first time in my life 

I am not afraid
