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

The Soulless Void

The Soulless Void

The soulless void is here, you know
Don’t dwell on it, just let it go
For it consumes your every hope
Until you can no longer cope

So rise above this beast of doom
It’s Easter-time, escape the tomb
In every facet of our lives
Some hope exists, good fortune strives

The work we do lives on from here
Take comfort in the truth that’s near
With every smile and helpful word
Some great new good once more occurred

We may not see where things moved on
For one day we will all be gone
Let’s help the evil be destroyed
Farewell now to the soulless void

Winds Of Change

Winds Of Change

Strongly blow the winds of change
This world at times can rearrange
And all you thought you knew so well
Transformed beyond what you can tell

A strange and happy twist of fate
An answer coming now, so late
Don’t ask the reason for this shift
At times we just receive a gift

The sender lives so far away
Beyond the clouds, no night or day
Another world, another plane
Aware of all our loss and gain

So sleeping we receive the news
And somehow change and build our views
To vistas rich with good intent
A beauty which will not relent

Within this veil of earthly charms
We notice also men of arms
Still hoping war moves out of range
And love’s swept in on winds of change
