melting (day 347)

'melt the guns
and never more to fire them
melt the guns
and never more desire them'
Your friend Andy's singing
ringing in my ears
and melt our hearts
of shot and stone
that enthrone weapons
and worship fears

Amen.

exploring the ignored (day 346)

an avenue
always ignored
never explored
appeared
and reared
its apparently
pointlessly
redundant
head
like the dead
end it always
has been
to me
but rather
than race
on by
i
STOP
and wonder
about wandering
into worlds
undiscovered...

Amen.

the Shining (day 345)

'Let the sun shine in'
was ringing out
from cloistered corridors
and hallowed halls
weighed down
under clouds
of conflict
and confusion
dreary despair
and disillusion
but the refrain
was repeated
and the clouds
retreated

The
Sun
Shines

Thanks.

Amen.

para Elton (day 344)

creativity arising
from the Spirit
of a surfer
colours emerging
from pens
not paints
shaking each one
to release
the Transcendence
of Tierra
the Magnificence
of Mar
upon canvas
into Creation
as reflection
of inspiration
from the Waves
and within.

two but one (day 343)

two communities
but one connectivity
two nationalities
but one humanity
two languages
but one communication
two cultures
but one condition
two paradigms
but one Provision
two perspectives
but one Vision
two powers
but one Force
two wells
but one Source.

the Water (day 342)

whether a student
struggling to swallow
or a farmer
envisioning tomorrow
what we need
to free the food
trapped in throat
buried in barrenness
is already present
within earth
within us
since both
of us
are mostly made
of It.

pumps, paint & perceptions (day 341)

there are many
different shades
of blue
any different ways
of making old
into New
there are multiple
adaptations
that emerge
out of
preconceptions
gone awry
and infinite inventions
that stretch
perceptions
of what is
Beautiful
and True

Thanks. 

Amen.
