The Rain

You restore, you reinvigorate,
Unstinting; give life.

You destroy, you refrain,
Stubborn; take life. 

Rain O rain,
Thy blessing, thy sting…

Let Me Fly

Wandering these eccentric streets,
I clamour through seas oblivious.
Trudging through crowds preposterous, as vehicles clamber by - horn to horn, mirror to mirror. 

Relentless. Unforgiving. Unperturbed by surroundings…
Simply set on reaching destinations.

In the eye of the storm…

There I stand.

Unnoticed. Unrecognized. Insignificant. 

I shall crawl with direction, rather than fly without destination.

Closing my eyes, I take a deep breath…and embrace the unfamiliar.

Lead the way, and I shall crawl. But if allowed I may be, let me fly.

That Place

A birth ends,
Another begins.
All is remembered, all is forgotten.

From struggle to splendour,
From feeble to forever.
All is remembered, all is forgotten.

Will we learn today
From all whom have, the path, lay.
Will we turn the clocks of yesterday
And have it another way.

To learn to forget,
To learn to remember.
To strive only for That Place,
Where all is remembered, all is forgotten.

(In memory of R. R., 1986-2009)

O, what is pride
That we holdeth onto it.

‘Tis as dew naked in the sunlight,
A beautified bouquet, fresh trim’d,
A flame flickering in the roaring rain..

A mere feeble flamboyance;
That withers as swiftly as breeze through our fingers..

O, what is pride
That we holdeth onto it.


“Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall”.
Proverbs 16:18

A Shade of T

Weighing these wishful eyes
As they stare into the screen
Sitting atop lacquered beams.

The mind perceives
As it chases what the eyes see
Running further away from me.

I must not permit 
Another one moment
Squandered in torment.

Divine, please intervene. 
Begging Mercy,
For purpose and Eternity.
