“Wisdom is written there
In the eye of the beholder
If he and she would but see
Not refine or filter out
the view from Earth’s life of …
…today’s surreal reality!”
Sleep, Silent angel, dry all your tears.
Rest, be at peace with so many fears.
Please don’t cry for our sorrows,
And our maybe tomorrows
… if we don’t get it right,
With our planet so in plight.
Sleep silent angel, do not cry for our grief
Spoiled sea, air and land,
fouled by a thief – yet in truth by our hand.
Do not cry for the loss and neglect and abuse,
Even as we do remain so obtuse.
Sleep silent angel, I beg don’t despair
We still are your people and though careless – do care.
Rest up your wings for tomorrow may bring
A renewal of hope with perchance a rebirth,
of loving and giving
on our home – Planet Earth!
“Echoes that are heard
after misspoken words
create resonance sweeping,
leading often to weeping
in sadness despaired
but words never cared.
And once they’ve been spoken
more words become token
of aftermath’s reflection,
and perhaps introspection
of poorly said words
that should’ve never been heard:
Misspoken words are like yesterday’s songs
always remembered for oh so ere long.”

Take care of you and if you’ve the time take care of a few others too.
Sing Me Today
Sing me a song, doesn’t need to be new
It can be about me, it can be about you.
Or maybe a song about other things
maybe hope for tomorrow and the good it can bring.
Sing me a song, an uplifting one
I’m in need of connections with universal love.
Sing me a song, right now, right away
no, not tomorrow, sing me today.
Make it grand, warm and loving so all will respond
with an outpouring of love from their very own song.
Please sing me a song I can harmonize to
and after we’re thru,
I shall sing one for you
filled with love, joy and caring,
without further delay
I will then also … sing you today!”

Thank you. Have the best weekend possible, filled with many good things.
Oh, what shall I do
with this glorious new day?
It’s mine for the living
despite come what may.
How can I share
these feelings so grand,
where new life’s unfolding
making its stand?
And where do I fit
in this scheme of all things?
Do I even belong
Or is life a dream?
Yet be it a dream
I shall not despair,
for happy I am
Whether here or there.
May your week be going smoothly and your cares be far removed.
With much affection,
Unspoken it’s true
Yet you promised me this:
With our last kiss
one shared with bliss.
With final embrace
that’ll never erase
your gentle caress
of finest finesse.
a shining sublime
of, lasting always,
a love so divine.
Never ever to be
… feeling bereft
and though I still cry
I now know why
… you left.
Tho’ love can be pure
It sometimes can’t endure
or so it seems
save in one’s dreams.
“So I’ll see you there
sweet love of mine,
Where love will last
for all of time.” ~ Plh, 2016
An Interlude of Quietude
Be calm, please be still
do quiet your mind,
dismiss troubled thoughts
of a worrying kind.
Nourish the peace
to be found deep within,
soothing life’s passages
of times we live in.
Quiet your mind
dear friends of mine,
know there’s tomorrow
when all can be fine.
With calm assurance
know you’re not alone,
with courage and belief
… a way will be shown.

The Song of All Souls
Within seedlings of trees that grow
And the whisper of winds that blow
In the river flowing down to the sea
Hear the song of all souls singing free.
In the laughter of people at play
The bright sun giving light to each day
All the planets and stars in the sky
Share love’s song deep inside you and I.
The waves as they crash on the beach
Golden moonbeams we look up to reach
And the love that we all need so much
From this song, closed hearts can be touched.
Deep inside where love has no wall
Our souls they do sing out to all
They guide like the outgoing tide
to the seas where all hearts open wide.
Thank you, have a wonderful week,
Tenderly do eyelids open,
viewing softly sunlight rays.
Sweetly hearing birdsong singing …
… “do go gently through the day”.
Do go gently through the day.
Do your best but open stay,
Heedlessly of come what may
Love and laughter your mainstay.
Strength need not be rough or rude
A gentle hand does more,
Courage comes to those who care
Opening a closed mind’s door.
Please go gently through the day
weathering life’s storms,
endless strength comes from the heart
when peace becomes the norm.
