Circus of Hearts




I was the sad clown, sweeping up the light
of our broken love in the big top circus of dreams.
Alone in a fading spotlight I labored to gather all
that was left of even a glimmer of what once was.

There was no applause, no cheering mob to praise
my futile efforts to capture something so fleeting as
the light of love, when the light of our love never shone
brightly when it first slipped into our hungry hearts.

It was in the end of all things, the end of all that we were,
a false light, born not of beauty and truth, but of duty.
We walked the tightrope of pretense long and steady
until plummeting into the sand covered arena of reality.

You fell willingly into the abyss of deception while I
clung tightly to the wire, a fool trying to escape what
was inevitable. At last I released my grip on the dream
of love, and fell hard upon the ground of disappointment.

But the light went out, and darkness filled the big top tent,
where we abused our hearts in death defying feats of unkindness.
The sad clown is no more. And you my tightrope princess
have found another circus to perform in, another high wire act.

I have found safety on the ground of wisdom and lessons learned.
No safety net is required, for alone I may be, alone forevermore,
but I will spend my days far from the big top tent of false hearts,
walking in the light of truth, feet on the ground, and happily so.

THE GIFT OF YOU ( Free Verse)




~The Gift Of You~
(Free Verse)

Honey my darling,
you make me feel like
dancing all day,
and at night with you
in my life I see all in a
better much light,
everything now is more
magnified but in good way
Rainbows and clear blue skies
are on my view
no more just storms and rainy
days ever for me
since you came into my life
little by little within
my heart you've grown more
and more by now
you live today and everyday
in my very heart and
my thoughts
and each day I thank God for
the gift of you
You're my true love, I like to
think the soul mate of my dreams
all that I ever wanted in my
heart for so long
You're like a dream come true
and this longing for you
my love of hearts will
never go away
forever I am on cloud nine since
You came into my life my
Love.

SILENT CRY


~SILENT CRY~

Everyone knows when the clouds are crying.
Only a few know when the eyes are crying.
No one knows when the heart is crying alone,
in the silence of sadness and sorrow of heart.

Saturated sadness and intense sorrow making,
the deep wounds come alive with severe pain,
causing hurting heart to cry in a silent cry,
even in the middle of a crowd full of people.

Too short is life


Heading south for the winter.
The birds fly backwards,
Into the hinters days.
Back to nests & days of rest.

Swanning & swallowing around in a whirl!
The romantic dance of the boy & girl, this gender bender.
Meeting of nature!
The bridging of birds, into generations future.
They float with fancy.
God that bird looks like Aunty Nancy.

Spirits rise to the sky upward into a pyramid of light,
Through a sunlight axiom.
Cascading on currents willowing & billowing, landing with precision.

Out & back to the nests woven home built with natures goods.
The simple life woven by love & wood.

Up on the wing the magic of crimson tones as the bird sings.
To laud the light & sun fire burning day into night.

The nesters cover by bridal clouds, Turing silver, saying good night.
We wait for the crack of dawn loves first light!
Brings forth a new day.

Winter into spring the hatchlings bring forth & chirp.
The air chill gives rise to spring.

The birds teach the young in short time to fly
It natures way some must die.

The family bade farewell to winters nest
Heading north with the rest.

Up & away into the jet stream of air.
Flapping & flying day after day.
The northern world has been found.
Finding a landing strip of natures land.

They wallow & play, then work the seasons.
Until natures call, pack your wings & head south.
Too short is life!

Heat & drought has bought the end of many species.
Has nature fallen on human calamity!

Colin * June 2007

Even After I Have Flown



I would build fortresses of love

To stand in hearts til the end

So in living and in dying

They will shelter and defend

May I show enough compassion

To strangers and those I've known

That everlasting devotion remains

Even after I have flown

When those I knew remember

All the laughter that we shared

May there be a secret smile

They'll be forever glad to wear

I pray the love I give is beautiful

So those I know will keep

Memories that grow golden thorns

As time makes them bittersweet

November, 2014

Through Christ



Praise the Father of our Lord,
To who is beloved and adored;
And no longer are we enticed,
Because of Lord Jesus Christ.

The Father has blessed everyone,
Through our Brother and His Son;
Spiritual blessings that does flow,
Coming from Heaven as we grow.

Before the creation of earth,
He chose us knowing the true worth;
Through Christ to be holy and pure,
Not to be tempted by the lure.

Because of love He decided,
To adopt if we abided;
He freely chose for us to be,
As adopted children are we.

He chose so the kindness given,
Unto us from up in Heaven;
Would be given glory and praise,
Through Jesus Christ His Son always.

Through natural blood of His Son,
God wanted to get the job done;
For setting us free from the sin,
That has corrupted us within.

God forgives us of all failures,
As a new creature He favors;
Pouring out all His blessedness,
Causing overflowing kindness.

He poured out His kindness in light,
Giving us wisdom and insight;
For revealing His secret plan,
That is mysterious to man.

He planned to end the mystery,
By bringing all of history;
Onto its goal through Jesus Christ,
For each answer to be sufficed

Tree and Flower



Tree and Flower

I am just a renter.
It is a public house.

Because I am a tree lover,
I love also flowers;
so I planted plenty of them,
all around the house.

Someone asked me,
and told me.

Why bother?
Is it worth the trouble?
Once you leave,
They will eradicate them all.

I said,
It is very worth.
It is not a trouble.

I just do what I think is good.
How the others will treat them,
I do not care at all.

Maybe at that time,
they will look and like them,
so can change their mind,
and decide to keep them.

I hope people who will
live here succeeding me,
may also love these plants
and take care of them just as me.

In our world many things
are unbeautiful things.

I sincerely hope there will be
more people may plant more
beautiful trees and flowers.

So when people look at them
may feel cheerful and comfortable.
Then our world may have fewer flaws.

DO UNTO OTHERS


DO UNTO OTHERS THE SAME UNUSUAL
GAME EVERYONE IS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT.
MASTER THE ANSWER AND SHARE IT WITH
YOUR FRIENDS.
DO UNTO OTHERS THE SAME THING THEY
MIGHT NOT DO TO YOU.
LEAVE PEOPLE GUESSING WHAT TO DO NEXT
OPEN YOUR HEART AT THE LEVEL WHERE YOU
CAN STILL BREATHE.
OPEN HER MIND TO POETRY.
DO UNTO OTHERS ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO
HAVE A BRAIN TOO.
OPEN WIDE SHUT.
DO UNTO OTHERS.
