Behold (Haiku)

Behold the foul mind
Operating with malice
To cause untold pain

Behold the loose tongue
Unleashed and free to damage
Wagging uncontrolled

Behold the true heart
That beats in rhythm and rhyme
Driven by great love

Behold the open arms
Outreached to support and care
Upholding the world

Behold steadfast feet
Walking on the path of peace
Shining light anew

Make Your Focus

Make your focus love not hate
Your aim to hear not shout
Your will to understand not force
Your thoughts clear with no doubt

Make sure your pathway with intent
To walk a way of peace
To bring the voice of unity
And love to never cease

The Pathway Of Peace (Haiku)

Peace will only come
Along the pathway of peace
Melting hate with love

Let Sun Rise In The Morn

Satan’s mistress has come calling
In robes of dingy white
With tiara on her head of gold
And thorns that exude spite

Beelzebub has met his new bride
The wench he wed mid year
Wreaking havoc; bringing hell on earth
With threats that instil fear

Yet though this prince of darkness
Has married devils spawn
Let light shine through; bring peace and hope
Let sun rise in the morn

A reflection on all the fighting that’s gong on in the world at the moment and a prayer for peace:
 

Cry Salty Tears

Sad sad world
Cry salty tears
To bring healing; health; peace
Indiscriminately
And let the sun shine again
Pure brilliant rays
Melting the souls of those who hate
Brightening the lives of those who mourn
Warming those left out in the cold

Sad sad world
Cry salty tears
To cleanse; purify; preserve
Without prejudice
And let love; harmony and hope
Restore the joy
Washing over each of individual, family and community
Celebrating diversity
Resonating unity

 

What Kind Of World Do We Live In?

What kind of world do we live in
What hatred abounds
Where wars sap earth’s bounty
Where animosity is found

What kind of world do we live in
Where is the peace
The love and the kindness
When did that cease

What kind of world do we live in
With starvation and curse
Where is the compassion
Why does it get worse

What kind of world do we live in
Where murder is rife
Where each beats the other
And the only answer’s a knife

What kind of world do we live in
Without souls and no hearts
Where trusts have been broken
Or are breaking apart

Why kind of world do we live in
Where lies are complex
And dishonour abundant
Another reason to vex

What kind of world do we live in
What planet is this
Where Earth’s beauty is lost
A beauty I miss

What?

What fog hangs over planet Earth?
What mist veils beauty’s face?
What ether lurks with ill intent?
What gangs men race ‘gainst race?
What ill begets such heavy scorn?
What hurts grip each so much?
What lies, what torment, and what pain?
What power craves into touch?
What might then kills the innocent?
What maims to win a score?
What loathing for another one?
What hate sets men at war?

 

 

Life Blood

Great blood vessels once flowed throughout
And cut across the living world
In streams of full vivacity
Sustaining life ahead

Such rivers surged with heart and soul
Like arteries cross every land
Yet then as veins of human tears
They wept in waters red

And haematoma blocked the flow
As conflict stifled, killed and raped
What had we done?  What do we do?
Usurped the river’s bed

Their courses altered by great wars
Permeated by broken lives
No longer fluid crystal blue
But channels of the dead

Arterial brooks starved of life
Left bleeding cross the world so wide
But now let’s hear the war cries cease
For peace to flow and spread

 

Freedom Call

From the cradle to the grave
Impart a creed of love
Teach fairness and teach tolerance
With peace combined thereof

And don’t let colour of a skin
Nor disability
Sit in the seat of judgement where
The truth is hard to see

Don’t rush to brash assumption
Nor empower a path of blame
But turn away from hatred
Lest all else that might inflame

And light a fire within your heart
One that considers all
With outreach, empathy and hope
Unite the freedom call

Freedom

Head Or Heart?

Your mind is ahead of your heart
The seat of all cognitive glow
So let it abide with the rest of your ways
To move with and swing in the flow

For the heart needs to beat all in time
In rhythm and rhyme in your life
To work in conjunction with all of your mind
To save contradiction and strife

So let the cogs turn in your head
Work with your heart strings like pulleys as one
And live in the lane of life’s sweet harmonies
Where your heart and your mind get along
