Peace (Remove filter)

You Will Never Know

Do you have questions,
Ones that could not possibly be answered?
The assurance of peace,
Robbed.
I suppose now I must find solace in the unknown,
That perhaps ignorance could be my silver lining.
It is not.
Nightmares take shape from loose ends,
The brain defaults to fear when it must assume.
Fear circumvents my ambition,
How can I continue,
When I will never know?
My focus limited due...

What is it I see?

 

Father,  

what is it I see?

In this place down below

Where rich tides of life 

ebb, and then flow

 

Where beauty & horror 

Rub shoulders like friends 

And the dominant species 

Both destroy, and defend

 

What is it I see?

When the colours of dawn

Turn, too soon, to darkness 

In a gathering storm

 

Not made from the seasons

But the breath of i...

The mouse and the Lion

How much harm is inflicted by ambition and power

that carrying war in itself,

sheds blood,

tears and grief

 

How little does evil and hatred care about

slaughtering children and elders

or the present and the future of a country

 

How absolutely insane may corruption and ego become

to smother, desolate and crush a garden

 

Ukraine, you have been orphaned,

In the world of her

On the threshold she stood,

Of the house where her life smiled.

Waving wildly her small arms at him,

Of whom she was the only child.

 

Inside sat the lady of the house,

Silencing her sobs and drinking up her tears.

Careful not to let the the happy bird know,

Chasing her was the worst of her fears.

 

All laiden with arms covered under his coat,

To not let the little...

Spanish Stillness

Walking

The world around me is how it used to be:

Fresh, alive, peaceful, welcoming.

Alone but not alone,

I’m part of this world again,

not fighting it

not worrying.

Not competing and being judged.

A modest meal awaits,

with good wine,

a shower

A bed.

La Faba - 2017

After the Meseta,

after the heat,

after the stones.

The green hills

the shady paths

the views.

The way is rocky and steep.

Don’t stumble,

keep your balance and

Breathe.

Peace around you.

And then there it is – La Faba.

I have arrived

And part of me will never leave.
