THE ALL KNOWING

There is a wisdom
from the sacred book
that surpasses all understanding,
it circles the planets
and weaves a thread
by which the stars are held in place;
and on a moonless night
it thunders as silent tears
down our cheeks.

POWER

You lock me up for my words,
stitch my mouth closed
and drive the nails of fear
through my heart;
but listen,
the faint beat of a drum
sounds still.

GUARDIAN

We are all keepers of the gate,
pick-axe pioneers of the road,
our strong shoulders carry the load,
challenge the face of fortune and fate
and polish the eyes of a child.

NO KIND DEATH 4

Below the birds, the ocean stretches wide;
above, the sky hangs grey and low
covering the wake of the sail boat
as across the void it quietly floats,
falls over the horizon
and leaves a space where once you were.
