When I hear this sound that awakens me, intimidating its way into my cloistered night, I write…

… Increasingly

vexed are our lives

as we mesure ourselves

in the wrong context…

… Rationalism

taks its toll.

Bedrock of silence

quickened of the soul.

… Life on the surface

is not what it seems.

Faith, love and prayers

do energize dreams.

… Today you and I

As best as we are able

need each remain true

to our own


fable!! …

Endless darkness envelops me.

It covers me, It oppresses me!

Within the dark, my thoughts run rampant;

With voices disembodied.

They tire me, really tire me!

They frighten me.

They leave me-

To anxiously wanting.

I lie patiently-

Wanting for the first rays of light.

The first glimmer of a glow!


I see upon the distant horizon-

As I lay and wait…

Each second seems like eternity.

I close my eyes;

Don’t know what I want to see;

Or visualize what I wish to see-

As I lay in reverie…

I open my eyes-

And I see-

The most wondrous sunrise.

I have yet to see how boldly taken hold.

The same oppressing dark-

Now has vanished ever so quickly.

And in its wake is left a blushing sky-

So filled with color!

And sheak too but in crystal tones-

Of a brand-new world dawning!! …
