The Cynic

anchorman-2-legend-continues

There’s always something
Going on behind the scenes
No motive is completely pure
And all around us people lie

The world is full of smoke
And mirrors and short
Attention spans
With news on the hour from
Misdirection Central
In living color and high def

And if you don’t know what
To think about the latest news
Relax ~ with well-trained
Experts standing by
Your attitude will get a
Painless tweak or two and
In no time you won’t remember
What the fuss was all about

Of course the side effects
Are varied and long-lasting
But hey ~
It’s all a tradeoff isn’t it
And if it gets to that point
I’ve heard the operation
Is almost always a success

So lie back and enjoy
It’s going to be all right
It’s going to be all right
It’s going to be all right

Come the Dawn

Come the dawn 13147329._SY540_

I hear them talk about me
As they wish me to ~
They stand beneath the
Window of my cell ~ and
Endlessly discuss the fate
I go to meet tomorrow ~

I hear the sound of laughter ~
False as a traitor’s lie ~
And I know that they’re
All afraid of me ~
A woman ~ small and
Powerless ~ facing my doom
In just a few short hours’ time ~

They fear and hate me ~
Because I did
What they could not ~
And now for revenge ~
They may do with me
What they will ~ I do not care ~
But this was an evil man ~
Who will not do
Another wrong ~
And I have no regrets ~

I am content to know ~
The single hope I have
Lies in your hands ~
I know that death alone
Would keep you
From my side ~
And so I wait ~

Only the dawn will tell ~

Love Story

 

wallpaper-830417_960_720 the space you inhabitYou draw my eye ~ whenever
You enter a room ~
Your grace and the very
Shape and the size of the
Presence you inhabit in the Universe ~
Are so unique that I would know you
Anywhere ~

Whenever I think of you ~
I think of love on the grand scale ~
As if you and I were meant
To have a mighty impact
In the scheme of life ~
I find it hard to think of us
In any other way
And yet ~

While I was filling up those rooms
Inside my head ~ with memories
Of magic and shared ardor ~
You have been always ~ the
Calm and steady core at the
Heart of my existence ~ without
Whom I’d have shattered
Long ago ~

Here in this reality ~
You have tethered me to Earth ~
And I have shared with you my stars ~
Can you even begin to imagine
What comes next ~

Joy in the Morning

Porch Smothered in Roses

One minute I am
Balancing my checkbook ~
The next I am standing
On a childhood porch ~
Smothered in pink
Sweetheart roses ~
Smelling like the
Dawn of all creation ~

I can almost feel ~
The delicate touch of the
Early morning air ~
Cool against my skin ~

It feels as if there’s
Birdsong in my veins ~
My knees and elbows tingle ~
In that one moment
It comes flooding back ~
Those magic moments
From my youth ~
When I was most alive ~

Even then ~
I must have
Realized those times
Were special ~ meant
To be stored away ~
So that they could
Be taken out ~
Unwrapped ~
Remembered ~
Savored ~

I am so grateful
For the kindness and
The foresight ~
Of a Universe which
Gives such lovely gifts
On a Monday morning ~

Air Water Fire Earth

Earth Air Fire Water

I look up into the
Deep blue vault
Of the heavens
And think of the thin skin
Of the atmosphere
The only thing that
Keeps us from the
Dark cold depths of
Space and instant
Annihilation

I stand at the edge
Of the ancient cliff
Looking down at the
Restless ocean
As it crashes and
Breaks against the
Shore
Another attempt
In its timeless battle
To take back the land

And later still I sit
Gazing into the fire
Basking in its warmth
Thinking of long ago
Days when I was
A child and Summer
Was forever
And love was ever
A shimmering promise
On the edge of my
Horizon

I remember the fields
With the sun on them
The ripening grain
The forever rows of corn
Tasseled and shining
Green as the leaves
On the trees
That surrounded
And sheltered our
Home

Thus I recite my litany
Air Water Fire Earth
And I feel the pull of you
As I feel the effects of
The gravity I cannot see

To me you are the most
Elemental of all
Without whom nothing
Matters
You are the love of
All my lives

I see the remembrance
Within your eyes as well
And peace and love
Enfold us
We have found each other
At last

In A Child’s Eyes

A Babys Eyes

Did you ever look deeply
Into the eyes of a newborn
And see the pure clear flame
Of the still-connected soul

Fresh from the hands
Of its maker it shines
And if you are lucky
And if you are wise
Perhaps the child will
Bless you and connect
You for a moment to
Your Source within

Swelling your heart and
Tearing your eyes as
You strive to linger
As you feed the hunger
Of a spirit left too long
Alone and unattended

But even though
The moment ends
The peace and the
Healing remain
Glimpses of glory
From beyond the veil
Gift of the Spirit
