Sagacious words

Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary. ~ Khalil Gibran

Earth Waters

Ever onwards move the relentless waters of life,
Not stopping for rocks or logs through surges of strife.
As always and with ease, agitating precious beliefs
And sometimes churning out gnawing griefs,
These ripples and patterns of fluid rhythm,
Silently help to create huge bubbles in time.
But just as easily can form every oasis of calm
As within the frenzied whirlpools of pain and harm-
Do our powerful Earth waters constantly flow.
In currents of strength, are quenched the needs and hurts,
Of people from vast mountains, forests, plains and deserts;
Of all our humanity buried and borne on a trembling thirst
The fluidity of our nature makes us malleable forms,
Powerful enough to create and resist all kinds of storms.

The realities of the life fight,
Highlight specifically the nature of time-
The lack of focus sometimes makes it all blurry,
The deceptive ticks of the clock melt into years-
As everyday life rejects and rejuvenates fickle ideals-
Through the sheer horror of pain
And the struggles of the spirit,
Small signs of redemption does the path give,
As the cold heart is constantly warmed,
By the sun blazing defiance of anger.

Soft Breeze

Soft breeze is gentle;
The earth cradles the spirit-
And heart is soothed.

Never deny in cowardice the unsated stomach of a starved beast-
The poise of rage determines the pace of all poetic and pious rapture-

Grow music by the sadness of the deranged and the silence of the tame,
The intricacies of time do allow sometimes, for the worship of shallow play,

As greed gives to fear and lets it bow down to the insecurities of the soul
And begins the harshest of a winter's lifelong famine from which the feral feed-

Grieve it, through ruthless and indiscriminate tragedies- as a visceral preparation
For a mind altering, personality changing, character defining, pattern of infinity.

To stand and argue for a cause-
Which ignores half of the picture,
To be barely able to contain malice-
This is the exposure of an arrogant disdain,
And it neutralises every argument.
There is a difference between anger and conceit-
The latter is an inherent contempt.
It is possible to be angry without being repugnant,
It is not possible to be repugnant without hatred.
And hatred is a disease which suffocates the world.

Seeing Eternity

A dot in the matrix of existence,
That which is invisible to the eye-
Yet is rendered visible to the mind.
The eyes deceive but the heart knows,
That in a Millennia the forces grow,
As the power lines of eternity are seen
But never within an unseeing world dream.
