Treading on Eggshells

A million broken eggshells
To tip toe through in space
To hesitate, to waver
To negotiate the race

Just like broken shards of glass
To miss and to avoid
To take care not to break more
Lest more become destroyed

Or to turn from such fragility
The rivers of lost tears
The wailing and the bedlam
Where time claims no more years

And seek a diamond pathway
Of golden happiness
Where sun glints in the distance
So tempting with less stress

Towards the crystal mountain
With distance from eggshells
To paradise and peacefulness
Or into another hell?

The Passion And The Cherry Blossom

A lamb on mule beneath the tree
With buds now in full bloom
The cherry blossom beautiful
That shelters the bridegroom

With flowers a fleeting reminder
Sweet pink fragility
Ephemeral nature of a life
To set the world so free

The passion of the cherry bloom
And all that goes before
The present moment that exists
With palms spread on the floor

And riotous vision set ahead
Prodigious majesty
As blossoms fall before their time
His sacrifice to see
