Saga For The Living
by Stefan Splawinski

beyond the realms of reason
lies a kingdom all our own
further than science reaches
explanation still unknown

from the first feeble light
there followed organic strife
miscellany of cosmic motion
so began this terrestrial life

When Spirits Speak Of Life
by Maxwell Bodenheim

Three spirits sit upon a low stone wall placed on the top of a hill. Their figures are gray, with human outlines, and their faces are those of a boy, a woman, and an old man. Light is greeting intimations of evening. The wall, the hill, and the figures exist only to the spirits who have created them.

FIRST SPIRIT
We have made a wall
And take it gravely.

SECOND SPIRIT
The pensive vagary
That let us to return to earth
Welcomes these pretty illusions.

The Spirit's Prophecy
by Josias Homely

The earth turn'd round—Her atmosphere of light
Like a soft radiance round a sapphire flung
Enclosed her as a garment, whose fair hues
Of many-color'd blended harmony
Trembled, as the swift sun-rays shot along
Through the thin vapours of a calm, still sky.

A spirit folded then his azure wing,
And rested from his lone, adventurous flight,
Where the first sunbeams struck the outmost air

That Infamous Myth
by Carl Halling

I was once in thrall to the infamous myth
Of the artiste souffrant,
But I’ve come ultimately to see it
As the cruellest of delusions.
But could it not be said
That it’s still among us,
That malefic notion
That the artist is a spirit set apart
For some special purpose,
Of which pain is an essential component?

Aether
by Tom Cameron

My will is in your hands
A delicate little handful
The gust within my spirit
You're something spiritual

A million miles from here
Is where we're going to
Somewhere it's crystal clear
Pure light out of the blue

I am no ghost
by Simon Deeley

I am no ghost, no phantom
And I’ve chosen to be with you.
We go together, bound for life.

Your light may drown me out by day,
But I am always with you
Beyond the blue sky.
When your light recedes,
contained and settled in the moon,
Gentle against the black night,

Together, alone
by Simon Deeley

No shadows in the field, save these two
We stand together, alone,
Our arms entwined
Our shadows merged around our feet
Casting an unused shelter.

We look to the horizon,
Through hedgerows,
Beyond the church
Its spire hosting a choir of blackbirds

Spirit of Summer
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

wind in hair facing the sun
walking paths of yesterdays
fragrant gusts in bowing trees
invisible friend

tossing the blooms to and fro
all dance to your lively tune
clothes flapping birdsong in air
and summer is young
