Remembrance 2017

In Flander’s mud
they paid the price
shed their blood
left behind their lives
Lying still in Flander’s fields
Where crosses mark their days
A hundred years have passed
And still the fight goes on
You see it in the faces
And in young-old soldiers’ eyes
Memories of comrades
how they lived
and where they died
We owe a debt
that can’t be paid
to each and every one
though they surely say
There is no debt
they gave it all
with free and willing heart




The voice whispers
come closer
draw nigh
I will tell you all my secrets
by and by
Step by step I venture
to the beckoning dark
drawing ever closer
watching for a mark
Just a little nearer
the ghostly whisper sighs
now just at the threshold
where mysteries abide
In eternal darkness
I seek but never find
answers to the questions
asked within my mind

Past Future Present

Voices lost in the past
smiles vanished
With the relentless
passing of Time
Echoes of future possibilities
unknowable, untouchable
inaccessible mysteries
of Time to come
There is only Eternal Now
one moment
forever perched on the threshold
of a black hole’s event horizon
Now is Forever
all that ever was
or ever could have been


The dream dies slowly
dimming until it’s gone
The world’s not made
for dreamers
Drifting on the shifting currents
of cold reality
they are lost
with nowhere
for dreams to thrive

Love Found

Love lost, love found
the wheel turns round
joy and pain
each comes again
family will remain
and make me whole again
Until the cycle churns
and new love can return

Summer Sky

Clouds pile lazily
into white puffy mountains
my soul soars
into boundless blue
dancing with Angels
in joyous abandon
amidst the sunlit heights
Time stops
and I am one
with the universe


Years pass
while we wait
to grow up
to find love
to find the perfect job
to find that dream home
Months pass
while we wait
for the birth of a child
for the return of a lover
Days pass
while we wait
for a letter
for a call
Minutes pass
when we realize
life is wasted waiting
And now
the wait is over


Lives entwined
through the ages
Meeting, parting
loving, leaving
souls destined
for each other
Sometimes seeking
always finding
Love that was
meant to be


I seek
but never find
Ask questions
that have no answer
Reach for dreams
just beyond my grasp
Life is not a destination
it’s a journey
with no end
