Voyage of Self Discovery

We are born ---
  we live, we die;
  and in between we gaze the aftermath of the gods...
  and the great shining stars at night ---
  with greater grip in old age than fleeting youth;

More fiercely we cling to ebbing mortality,
  as if there is more in elder years,
  and as a fledgling we only know a rising sun;
  for it never sets in first-time life,
  whilst excitement drifts like snow in later years,
  its coming appreciated all the more,
  like the end of a mystery movie nearing...
Was it good? ---
   or was it bad?

Will we ever see the credits?

4 Love

Love is a four letter word
she whispered into his ear,

So is four, as is word
he whispered back into her fear,

Such is "you and I"
cried his heart - she could hear,

Their cheeks hugged, eyes kissed
each shedding a single tear.

An Early Wind

You will go from earth to sky for this sweet reunion.
lie softly Precious Traveler, suffer not. 


blue Mother Moon shall open an early wind 
and gently blow you home.

My Time Has Come

My Time Has Come

My time is over here in this body
I am being called home as my work is done here
I hear my Lords voice calling me home
Although I know I will miss this old world 
With all that I have seen and done
All the People I have met and talked to
My body can go on no more for it has reached it’s time

Little Black Box

Little Black Box
Where You lie Sleeping
Little Black Box
Your Secrets Keeping
You'll Never Talk
In That Little Black Box

UnMarked Grave
Where You Are Wasting
UnMarked Grave
In Soil Basting 
Just another Knave
In An Unmarked Grave

Barren womb
Just Like A tomb
Barren Womb
Life exhumed 
We're all Doomed
In A Barren Womb

Yet Another Reflection

I rend asunder and
Crumble into dust
Before my very eyes.

No answers forthcoming
To my many questions,
Most important, "Why?"

"A fool are you,"
I stand thinking.
"There is no disguise."

To worry so about
What matters not
In the by and by.

Trials have strengthened.
Sorrows kept me human.
No point to analyze.

"Life is for living,"
An ultimate truth
I finally realized.

Sooner than later
Might have been better,
Had only I been wise.

I rend asunder and
Crumble into dust....
A twinkle in my eye.

Winter is Coming

Winter is Coming, of course this is known.
Dark skies draw near and the birds have flown.
The nights grow shiverous, dark, and wet
While Sol (Saw-L) nestles in Horizon’s net.
Baratheon suffers the pass of a King

but perhaps his fall was less than a sting
and a new ruler takes place, whom you wish not rein.
Lannisters do not fret from most threats
They know Winter is Coming  .

High and Honor is the Falcon’s Wing.
Forces of Vale to defend Robin.
Mysterious sights appear upset.
White walkers return, not many have met.
Bloody Snow soon soils the spring.
Winter is coming death it will ring.

White Coffin

In a white empty coffin
Angels lay in wait
For today the preacher is late

In a white empty coffin
Silent nights filled with piercing screams
You may call them nightmares

The grim reaper calls them dreams
In a white empty coffin
Snow storms hail from above

A blanket of death over
Those who breathe not at all
White empty coffins

Collecting tears as they fall

Charon's obol

In the shadow, behind the tree, 
on the meadow, bend your knee,
down the valley, up the stream, flat bedrock,
hear me scream, bellow the heavens, toward hell,
dark tunnel, wishing well; fellow traveler listen well,
no chance given, could you tell, 
on a knife-edge, head or tail?

A Voyage To Nowhere

A lifetime it seems 
I’ve sailed towards freedom
But only in my dreams
Does it ever really come.

Stranded in this place 
Like a ship on a reef
Held fast in the embrace
Of heartache and grief.

Unable to pull free
From its iron tight grip
Trapped in the misery
Of my now sinking ship

Desperation and anguish
Washes over my face 
My hope starts to languish
On my voyage to this Imaginary place.

I’m a mariner who’s out of sort
Traversing this turbulent sea
Searching for the nearest port
Where I can finally be free.

The Voyage

"Existence is an ocean."
The body is a vessel, this life is a sea.
God brings the winds that fill its sails,
But it's captain is only me.
Other ships may come and fire against us
My crew may plot a mutiny,
If succeed they do, and if I lose
My ship goes down with me.
No one else will tell me how,
Or why, or what, or when.
Till the sea swallows us up,
And it's waters birth us anew.
Till I say good bye, the final time,
And sail those seas again.

Its been a long and perilous journey
All over in such a short time
I  find myself yielding the treasures
I once thought were mine
If there’s a heaven
Then surely, there is a hell
Question is “in which shall I dwell”

Grave Robbers

We put the urn aboard ship.
Excubant vigil by starlight kept. 
Cradled in a zephyr grip, 
distant, the desolate catacomb crept.
Homeward, encumbered vessels slip
adorned in the dreams of those who slept.

My last train trip

                    My last train trip  
Can you hear my train coming tchoo tchoo
I see mom, dad and all the people I've known 
At the sidewalk they are singing in moan
I'm sleeping, dressed up and up to go 
All hats were been pulled down

I'm floating above waves of hands 
I reached my cabin of wood
Inside, is brighten  in white even my hood 
Outside, it starts raining sands
With no time I'm drowning in the flood

Loneliness takes over the place 
It is getting cold and dark 
I can hear the village clerk 
He is saying my name followed by rest in peace 
Everything decays except for My gravestone that  stands like a strong oak

The poem of Pi

The waves crash as I cry,
for I am lost,
it is lost,
it is all lost,
family, friends, love, my laughter.
I have but a boat and a beast.

                  Surprised their souls, soared towards the sky
                    Searching the kingdom of heavens to find

                Untimely their departure, yet the call can’t defy

                       For destiny’s law, eternally them bind!*

Voyage from the birth canal to Cimetiere du Pere-Lachaise de paris where I lie


Full circle

Death nears
Dead clowns
In ground
No sound

Raging Storm

Raging water, a terrible turbulent storm
A ship capsizes with men aboard
A vision of mercy entered there...
Finding the sailors who floundered waves
In and out the mercy sought
Wanting to offer a handing help
Searched endlessly until silent the waters
No man found struggling nor survivors

Turbulent was not the sea, wonderful largest liner floated safely.
Inspired by luxurious ocean voyage, affluent passengers sailed gaily
Tension-free vessel suddenly struck by hidden ice berg. Ship at stake.   
Abrupt rush of water flow flooded the deck causing ship wreck.
Not enough life boats to accommodate each innocent helpless soul.
Ill-fated Titanic sank. Most tragic event, just to count death toll.
Captain Smith prayed till last breath. Titanic ! Ocean stole.

What Now

There's really no one left to call
Do I need a phone at all?
The kids around are all on text
For me who to call next?
As time went by
I watched friends die
Left stunned and filled with rage
Who ever thought that we would age?
So now they're carried off the stage
Can't do much but turn the page
Today my call lists really blank
I say to you
And let's be frank
When all around have passed away
Life is but an empty day.

Whispers in my ear;

The dead wish to live again.

A soft strumming
of worn out strings;

The dead hope to rise.

From coffin nails
to slow exhales,
the living wane
and slowly fail.

I tie my knots,
I lift my sails;

The dead setting off again.

From Roanoke
to Jamestown’s walls,
the sea consumes another soul;

And I’m settling down
on this foreign shore
without a line
to cast back home;

The living dream
of growing old;

The dead remain, 
in rotting bones.
