On The Death Of The Beloved
by John O'Donohue

Though we need to weep your loss,
You dwell in that safe place in our hearts,
Where no storm or night or pain can reach you.

Your love was like the dawn
Brightening over our lives
Awakening beneath the dark
A further adventure of colour.

The sound of your voice

I do not ask for youth, nor for delay
in the rising of time's irreversible river
that takes the jewelled arc of the waterfall
in which I glimpse, minute by glinting minute,
all that I have and all I am always losing
as sunlight lights each drop fast, fast falling.

I do not dream that you, young again,
might come to me darkly in love's green darkness
where the dust of the bracken spices the air

Night sky
by J L

It has been said that we are just the universe experiencing itself.

If this is true, then to gaze at the night sky is to look back at our own past.

Strewn outward from the infinite cauldrons we call stars, this spectacle of light and vibration has spent eons in transit to get to us.

During this journey, all that we have ever known on earth has come and gone. Every pain ever felt. Every single human breath. Every word ever spoken. Every beginning and every end.

Like a child in the arms of our mother, we gaze upon from which we came.

I love your green hill sand sunny vales,
your flowering trees and sunny dales.
When wondering through a starry night the
firefly shines its dazzling light.

What mystery your cayes unfold
so many legends never stood,
of the baymen who bled and died
on sands of cayes for their pride.

American Primitive
by William Jay Smith

Look at him there in his stovepipe hat,
His high-top shoes, and his handsome collar;
Only my Daddy could look like that,
And I love my Daddy like he loves his Dollar.

The screen door bangs, and it sounds so funny--
There he is in a shower of gold;
His pockets are stuffed with folding money,
His lips are blue, and his hands feel cold.

I can remember when I see my burns

I know the pain

From searing my skin one too many times

Melting flesh
