Rising to the Light

He said he was rising to the light
Each morning from the station
Up flights of stairs to sunshine
Every day he would say
I’m Orpheus returning
From the underworld
And I will not look back
I keep my life on track
By rising to the light

And even when stormclouds and rain
Reduced his goal to muted tones
No sunshine as his guide
Every day he would but smile
An umbrella in his pack
Kept our hero rising
And never looking back
There’s nothing he would lack
By rising to the light

I envied him his surety
That daily grind would yet inspire
To embrace this grimy world entire
The simplicity of hope
No anxiety could attack
The new man here ascending
And never looking back
He truly had the knack
By rising to the light

Druids

Here the druids gathered
Under cover of mystical night
To commune with energies and entities
We have long forgot
And should they walk amongst us now
We see them not
We see them not

Carrying this legacy
More hidden in the secular
The rituals are cloaked in starlight
We have long forgot
And when they work among us now
We see them not
We see them not

Just stones in strange formation
Remind us of the majesty
Of spirituality we’ve born and yet
We have long forgot
And even in their silence
We see them not
We see them not

But power is eternal
It does not ebb and wane
Merely at the whim of vessels
That the world forgot
And when they spin their mysteries
We see them not
We see them not

Wishes

Wish for me now
One little dream
Not what we have
What might have been
Not what you see
Find the unseen
Wish for me now
One little dream

Wish for the world
One little hope
Never the knife
Never the rope
Always the climb
Never the slope
Wish for the world
One little hope

Wish for me now
One little dream
Not just to flow
Floating downstream
Building our strength
Gathering steam
Wish for me now
One little dream

Queen

Once we were royal
Our wings unfurled we flew
Together
All we ever knew

Bloodline testament
Glory of the skies
Together
Together we would fly

Now we are hidden
Wings tethered, broken hues
Separated
Nothing we could do

World ever changing
Lost all we have been
Separated
No more king and queen

Slumber for an eon
Till we claim the skies
Together
One more chance to fly

Yearning

Yearning for the alpha and omega
The starting point
The peaceful end
All life flows
From sturdy oak and dappled leaves
At the centre
At the centre
Is all

Praying for the message of the heart
The beating truth
The wordless sound
Hear me now
Spread your roots so deeply
At the centre
At the centre
Is all

Comforted beneath your dappled boughs
Perfect rest
Rebirthed life
All begins
Nourish every aching soul
At the centre
At the centre
Is all

Connected

Across the city the electricity yearns to touch
each trembling soul and I awake
in the middle of the night to tremble, shake
within my very core this deep earthquake
of being known
Our separateness we take for granted only choosing
where and how we embrace
but deeper truths we dare not face
Like splinters or like shattered glass
through unity each soul will pass
and differentiate at last
in being known
I’d cry to gods that are long gone
borne on electrical torrents and storms
to other lands and other souls less fickle
and less defiant than
our little selves
and we’re left sitting on the shelves
of ancient libraries of time
but through our electricity soft, sublime
for moments connection may be mine
and being known

The blurb

The terrorist leader and financier Matt Jacobs figured out a plan to eliminate the President. He is relying on John Cannon’s stature as a hero to help him carry it off. John finds himself walking the fine line of pretending to help Matt while trying to figure out a countermeasure to the plan.

The third book in the John J. Cannon Trilogy brings together two strong wills for a showdown. The question to be answered is who will feel the satisfaction that the achievement of justice delivers? John, Matt or neither?

Castle

I dreamt of a castle on a hill
Too grand to be but even still
I yearned to reached its heights until
The dream was gone

I searched the world entire yet
No closer could I ever get
I fell to sorrow and regret
The dream was gone

I know what it may represent
So from this quest I can’t relent
I must atone, absolve, repent
The dream is gone

The castle’s nothing but my heart
Too long have we now lived apart
And where it ends is where I start
The dream is gone

Let There Be Peace

This perfect morning
Sun dipped water lights shine
Undisturbed quiet
We glide
Across the eddies and flow
And all that we may know
Our travails
Our longing to cease
Let there be peace

All is possibility
Moments before birth
Our course unaltering
Fixed on stars hidden
By the morning’s pure glow
The world above, below
Our dreams
Our hopes released
Let there be peace

Sleep Now

Sleep now
Little earth
Before the moment
Of new and wondrous birth

Slumber sweet
‘Neath veil of white
We will endure
Through this darkest night

Quiet wait
Till the new year morn
Something precious
Will be surely born

Sleep now
Little earth
Before the moment
Of new and wondrous birth
