Shelled Shores and Music

Your heartbeat,
The tide, the shore —
The shell, the shore, the music,
Listen to the sound:

The poetry flows,
The melody flows,
To the Lighthouse.

Relentless (Crossfire)

October 16, 2016

“Relentless”

In the time we spent together
Many words have passed between
And the feelings that we shared are all behind us now
‘Cause a change has come upon me
And I’m surly not the same
There is so much more than what we feel and live every day

[Chorus]
Relentless, unchanging
Though the world is still before me now
I’m seeing forever
I will keep my heart and mind with you
So joyously I’m waiting for the day

In a single timeless moment
When the old was cast away
The new was born into a world of simple joy
And my life is still for living
Though it’s seen through different eyes
And the knowledge of the truth’s
A burden easy to bear

[Bridge]
It’s drawing so near
It’s shrouded in mystery
Histories fall, the end of an age
The feeling we’re waiting for, hoping for
Now, the time to come alive
The end to which we strive
Will soon arrive

Now the gift is truly given
If you only would receive
For you’re standing in the crossroads
And you can’t turn back
Though we can’t conceive forever
And it’s sometimes hard to care
Our lives do not compare to what’s awaiting us there

The Promise, the Manna, the Bread

September 23, 2016

Scrolled Art

Once, there were thoughts of being filled – before finding.
One side made every attempt to keep the earthly forever blinding.

Many drinks were sought in such a place – before knowing.
Then, upon tried chapters, the Spirit poured – like a river flowing.

“Would you give up?” – (finally) as a question.
Years followed – each passing with many a lifting lesson.

“These are the greatest gifts” –
exclaimed as they were bestowed.
“What more could be given –
(in return) for these triumphs and throes?”

This is the Promise (which always mends).
This is the Manna (which eternally sends).
This is the Bread (which never ends).

“Amen”: New Beginnings

September 9, 2016

Our Father, who art in heaven,
Hallowed by thy Name –
The King of kings, Lord of lords,
Thy Name the same.

My Leader, my Brother,
My Savior, my Friend –
Guide and carry me,
Until that beginning as an end.

Our Father, The Creator,
The Holy, The One –
Lift me to that time
When eternity has only begun.

Hallowed be Thy Names,
Thy Swords to come;
Hallowed are The Words
Which shall never be undone.

Gotta Serve Somebody +

October 7, 2015

You may be a preacher with your spiritual pride
You may be a city councilman taking bribes on the side
You may be working in a barbershop, you may know how to cut hair
You may be somebody’s mistress, may be somebody’s heir.

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes
You’re gonna have to serve somebody,
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody.

Might like to wear cotton, might like to wear silk
Might like to drink whiskey, might like to drink milk
You might like to eat caviar, you might like to eat bread
You may be sleeping on the floor, sleeping in a king-sized bed.

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed
You’re gonna have to serve somebody,
It may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody.

Good Fridays: Why? When?

April 3, 2015


They say:
We’ve seen the Light.
We are here – to show, to Lead (away).
And then:
After realizing certain power[s],
They overcome, perhaps oppress,
For those claims must have results —
Even if their singular Path can only be realized, judged, and ruled
In and from exclusive Towers.
For us, they are the “Chosen” —
So some say.
Yet, many reason, and may wonder –
Someday:

Sent (In Memory): “Don’t Give Up”

July 3, 2014

Ten thousand years, and nothing was learned No turning back, now the wheel has turned

~^~

Here is Truth. Open with care, that which is naked (as hearts). Once embraced, Why must certain invitations tear those apart?

~^~

Ring them bells from the sanctuaries ’Cross the valleys and streams For they’re deep and they’re wide And the world’s on its side

“You Were. . . .”

“And if the wind is right you can sail away and find serenity Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see. Believe me.”
