Suicide of Civilisation

Suicide of Civilisation

.

I wander up hill and down dale

Looking for the street called Straight,

Passing though bogs and sawn down logs –

Signs of progress while nations regress –

Where bare sand erodes in the wind

And deserts overtake the forests;

Cities and towns mushroom at every turn,

Concrete jungles whose heat smothers

The very air we breathe, the air we need,

Until mankind turns on itself

Playing the blame game to the death.

Head vs Heart

Head vs Heart 

.

I was the only one

The lonely one 

Living inside my head 

Eyes wide shut 

Blinded by tears 

And nameless fears 

Then I found you in my heart 

And knew I was not alone

You brighten my shadows

And lighten my pain 

You keep me going 

Again and again

My faithful Father

For ever

The Watchers

.

There are eyes in the sky 

As the birds fly

Up and down,  back and forth,

To and fro, 

Many voices calling,

Singing, squawking, 

Talking?

What a fuss

Watching us

Watching them

Causing mayhem!

The Veil
.

Old eyes seeing new

Brighter colours in my view

Now the veil is drawn aside 

And my eyes are open wide 

I see in sunlight and in shade

All the beauty God has made.

The Cat

The Cat

.

(Night)

Golden orbs shine in the dark,

Unblinking, slinking close to the ground,

Aware of the slightest sound,

A distant howl,yowl,growl

Will cause me to pause.

(Day)

Stalking is my way of walking,

Head held high,

Nose in the air – hoity-toity –

Who do you think you are?

No, I don’t want a pat –

Can’t you see I’m a cat?

Independence is my name,

Your attention is my game;

I will suffer, but only when I’m in the mood

And also only if you’re very, very good.

HOPE

HOPE

.

Love lost and found 

Hope beckons this time round,

A shining light in the darkest night,

As a cloud vaporises into wisps of white 

And delicate strands holding hands

Reach down to where we stand.
