A Hint At What Is Beautiful?

Beautiful is the ‘thank you’
Wrapped with gratitude,
Offered to peace prone people
Who offer what is real-themselves
To nurse with love and humility
napalm asphyxiated victims
in our stained world

veiling ambition with face of
humanity.Beautiful is the moment
when sunlit world fades away
And with it mind made mirror
While look inward drawn, sight insight led,
and heart shuts out desire to let in
consciousness.

A Baby’s View Of

I came as tomorrow
Swaddled in unawareness
To your warm womb
Mother……
Without your choice
Or mine
Destined to up date
With time
Our human tree
But before love
Grew into flesh and words
What is unfinished creation-
A precipitation of blood
Became my transcendence.

A Blind Beggar

Eye sockets mere bruises
Alike to closed fists
Save whole being tangled
In his last rags
All else dissolved-
A vase dripping away
Holding time’s finger

Rattling his soul
As a broken alms bowl,
Unable to knock open
A deaf world’s door
To go out of this life-
Conscious how immense
Is oneself without walls.

A Child’s Reflection

Made homeless from home
Bombed city where though many
Extend an armless arm, find it harder
To hold peace than explosives
In a napalmed land
Where arms are more expensive
Than human hands.As home
bred exile I learn to follow safety
through blood on the road
lit flashed by bomb-light,
To grow under a chemical sky
Dripping with nuclear fall outs
Flowing to other poison
Poured daily on earth and mind –
Today planet earth, tomorrow the stars.
How sad man who dreams of a home
In hereafter, can’t share their warmth
To each other’s heart, here and now
On native home land EARTH.

A Dream

Each night, earth life suspended,
Without asking where you are going
Or who you are, you experience
As if life dreams of itself,
Content to keep happy, immortality
Behind the curtain of sleep.
It’s a world you have no word for
And though it was real at the moment,
You call it a dream,
Which is lost as you awake.
