Your Light

.

a bright light shines through the darkness

warms my heart and cossets my soul

i feel you here lord, i feel you here god

your spirit calms me and keeps me whole

my faith grows stronger with each passing day

i will hold on forever through the rain and the storm

i will never let go and will come to no harm

‘Twas a Wild Wind

.

‘twas a wild, wild wind,

a wily, capricious

wind from the west,

its mischievous

spirit wavering, teetering

‘tween destruction and

obstruction – construction

not an option!

thrust and pause,

howling and moaning,

keening and droning

until it slowed to a sighing

as daylight lifted its mood

and its temper subsided

which was all to the good.

Evensong

.

The skirt of evening falls

gently enfolding hills and dales

in purple haze; these are the days

where twilight wraps branches as they bow

and the flames of the setting sun

dive headfirst into the golden meadow.

The morrow waits just o’er the hill

with bated breath, beyond the heath,

and God keeps watch both day and night

to see His will be done.

A Week Away in the *Bundu

.

A week away in the bundu ~

Heaven on Earth ~

Away from the DIS-ease

And DIS-order of CIVIL-isation,

The cultivation of sophistication

In nations, where evolution

Lags behind what man desires.

What was thought to be progress

Is, in fact, re-gression

And chemical compounds rule the way

In which our foods are grown ~

Animal and vegetable ~

DNA manipulated, cloned, all in the name

Of improvement; a few steps forward

And how many back? Gods in white coats

Seeking, questing what? Eternity?

*(the bundu)
