"Foreign lands"


The mind is shattered on the rocks thrown up by foreign shore
Unsure of acts, the heart now stands and rises to the fore
On foreign lands, on hobbled legs, look out upon the sea
Remember there, with fondest thoughts, a distant memory
The will to stumble forward, now, upon the distant coast
Is something few have had the will to later have the boast

"Daunting Realms"


At daunting coast, the challenge raves
'Tween cliffs of wrath and raging waves
The storm does toss within the sound
As raindrops splatter to the ground
The coast is reached, at last, so sure
The cliffs are scaled, now bright verdure
Is seen as far as eye can see
'Mid roaming beasts and vaulting tree
A path is spied along the way
With twists and turns where many stray
And, further on, more paths are strewn
Unending ways, discovered soon
Some, dark and dim, some filled with lust
Some bright and shining through the dust
Far distant crystal spires are seen
As dragons, jade, fly in between
The roar of dragons shakes the dust
You pause the beat, the seasons must
You'll need your courage as you find
Your way through daunting realms of mind
So staunch the will that reckons clear
Through bouts of doubt and silent tear

"Realms of the mind"


I so often wander there for passion or from plight
I find there always something that will make it feel alright
To fly the face of peacefulness when all is wrought or broken
There is no better place to know the whisper that’s not spoken
Vistas of imagining like whispered rivers near
Worlds beyond all patterning, await the silent tear
And, if the cold's beneath the bone
Or whither on, the flight unknown
When spring pulls back to winter's raging
Or, love of life seem surely aging
The peace is in the mind, the hearth is there to call
Always you will find, the heart not aged at all
