We’d like to show the side of the world you don’t normally see on television.
Summers consist of
and emerald afternoons.
The trees filter the sunlight -
so often saving me from
those headaches, which might have
mutated, evolved into migraines.
By autumn, the leaves have changed colour:
a poet's palette of
gold, and red.
In winter, the trees are slender,
with a stark, grey-brown beauty:
yet able to endure
the harsh frosts of the season.
And, throughout the seasons,
a concrete universe -
so they mark out their potential
victims, with orange spots.
The letters to local residents are headed:
Yet, trees can bleed.
Scenes of carnage seal the deal.
They win; we lose.
So much wildlife, instantly evicted.
Fluorescent yellow workmen circle tree stumps,
inspecting their day's work -
before going for "a pint",
and home for tea.
Spring is cancelled.
Of the ocean,
Whose graceful motion
Entrances and enchants -
Your collective "spirit"
With my own,
In sacred waters.
Prayer perfumes the air.
Late into the night,
we are raising the rhythms
We are weaving our intricate tapestry
of light -
around in our brains,
and visions transcending
the "truths" that we once
thought we knew.
A Certain Stillness
At the very centre of our silence,
I listen to the orchestra of angels,
and a certain stillness seems to
enter, deep inside of me.

Almost safe inside my sanctuary -
it's not that I'm afraid of solitude.
Yes, there is loneliness, but why delude
myself? In my heart, I must stay wary.
People will hurt you once your guard is down.
Hurt upon hurt - it gets hard to repair.
Still, I find that, in the end, I do care.
With no lifebelt, I fear that I might drown.
I just don't know the answers anymore -
as if I ever did. Does…Continue

Hope sometimes comes to us
in pastel shades.
It isn't always
black or white,
or even grey.
I feel that hope,
when needed most,
will often be
