Thanks

sonnet #10
thanks


grateful for meaning i can breathe
thankful too for this life itself
because i gave i can receive
that given returns to me

that received i could not demand
for it was freely given me
a love that i could not command
reciprocating set me free

show thanks by using it fully
as an artist loves his brushes
i must embrace it joyfully
love the gift that cleans me, washes

that in life just ordinary
is now for us that most worthy.

Credo

sonnet #13
credo

from spiritual and moral captivity freed,
lifted beyond fear, ignorance, isolation;
a fresh vision of reality is our creed,
born out of a universe in constant motion;

we accelerate, expand possibilities –
no sterility of mind and heart – apathy;
no moral inertia from dead theologies –
instead, with an evolving world, our empathy.

we broaden our horizons in this changing realm,
primordial power, bound by humanity;
we, chastened and humbled, new ideas at the helm,
extension of vision, our new paternity.

what is most exulted in us becomes our quest,
freedom of our spirit in nature is our rest.

Friends

sonnet #3
friends


i put on a new mask for the Christmas season
hidden I am two brackets on either side of the page – nothing between them
open to feelings and stripped bare by them
i exist briefly in the company of the poppy but without reason
paper scissors stone – a mindless game – a lesson in doing
my life is a broken thread with no way out of the maze – i must atone
the darkness so much darker when i walk alone
the impermanence of my pulse – the sound of one hand applauding
in a room full of mirrors your absence is a deafening silence
with you a new beginning? to improve learn grow and conquer defeat?
put dreams to paper? yet still my sunset lingers in a one-way street
missing you i feel the hordes that wish me violence
from you the courage, the hope and loving that i bear
does the earth still feel my footsteps – and are you still there?

Inside Out

sonnet #12
inside out


i was indifferent to my being,
used myself as just a thing, a stranger;
me, a species of the genus “caring”,
my own guardian, a deranged lone ranger!

told i must see from the inside, myself,
to know how I appeared from the outside;
must learn to feel at one with this good “self”,
not estranged and cut off, blown off-side!

if i related to you as that self,
oh dear! God help you! i was truly stuffed!
but i learned to care for that guy, myself,
damn! doing so, the caring became shared!

now i have friends who think me worth knowing,
and we’ve sown seeds that will keep us growing.
