Flowing Streams

Flowing Streams

Light and life in flowing streams
Let’s seek them out, beyond the schemes
For simple is the way of truth
It doesn’t need a super-sleuth

The world a stage?  We always knew
And everything’s just passing through
The hopes and fears of each mind
Will come and go whilst most are blind

And reading may not bring the way
So much is thought, but what’s to say?
The depth of human-kind is rare
Don’t doubt you’ll find the ones who care

So with this searching, life is born
And once again, another dawn
Excitement rises, floods our dreams
No darkness beats these flowing streams

Holiday Times

Holiday Times

Holiday times can change your view
With places old and places new
So much to learn, explore, reflect
A break brings more than you expect

Don’t work without the hope for rest
We’re here to live, more than we guessed
Strive on with visions greater still
So far beyond the running mill

With peace of mind a mission’s clear
The answers suddenly appear
All swept away are olden doubts
Results may come when freedom shouts

So heed the call, there’s not much time
And every chance will help you climb
The web of life brings joy so clear
When holiday times again draw near
