The Legend

When
The paths
Leading down
The mountains
Are no longer calling
And in your eyes the valleys
Appear no more to be deep
The wind will whisper
The legend
Of the
Silent
Sanctuary
Revealing the love
Where the sun and the moon
Come to meet

~~~

Feel The Peace

When
The orchard
Of your dreams
No longer bears fruits
Listen to the blossom of silence
Hear the vastness of the still ocean
Feel the peace of no leaves in the breeze
Touch the freedom of no illusions
And see that your signature
Reveals not a face or a name
As the climax lacks thunder
For divine light is gentle
And the silence
Is pure

~~~

All The Faces

One
Day
All the faces
i have worn
Shall be painted upon the pages
The biographer has drawn
Yet my image
You shall
Not find there
For my souls reflection
Is a vibrance
Of silence
Thin
Air

~~~

Many Castles

On
My
Travels
i have been
A guest in
Many castles
Yet the
Monument
Which i
Find
Divine
Is the oasis
Where the heart
And the silence
Intertwine

~~~

Ever Vivid

The
Night
Of nothingness
Appeared ever vivid in my arms
And as you laughed i felt no harm
For the sun rose never before its time
And if you ask why i cry
It is the joy of
Knowing
Silence
Before
i die

~~~

With A Smile

As i
Returned
To heavens door
i remembered
The turnstile
i saw
And
With
A smile
Just like a child
i got to my knees
And slid across
The floor

~~~~

The Hush

The
Nature of being
Leaves out
Nothing
At all

And
As i
Sit here
In silence

The
Beauty
And strength
Of the hush

Is
Like the
Powerful
Rush

Of
The
Greatest
Waterfall

 

~~~

Home

Like
Cracks
In the stone
There are places
That are spaces
Of pure silence
That let
Us know
We are home

~~~

Guidance

Love
Is gentle
Guidance
And not
A path
Of direction
For a destination
Is grand illusion
As pure silence
Is the source
Of home
The true
Journey
We measure
Not in distance
Only in the acceptance
That we are never alone

~~~

Being

In
The
Final phase
Remember nothing
For being is not
A ritual

~~~

Sweet Silence

The
Answer
To your answers
Certainly questions not
For the answer from the wisdom
Of loves sweet silence
Says a lot
