Light ~ Waiting for The Light~

When darkness suddenly descends
this light keeps the spirits alight
with hope courage and sight

In the middle of the night
when the heart and mind fight
the oblivious battle of might
ideas great and thoughts 
of intellectual height
when the Pen keeps tight
words of wisdom prayer
Truth and The Right'
when not enough is the fading twilight
nor even the full moon light
when faint rustling is heard of the samite
and blocked are the letters of the playwright
when it does matter` the black or white'

Then I think of  The Eternal,  Finite,
The Great Rhetoric, The Disunite' 
Who suffered, the Krait's bite?
never thought of the ensuing plight
and Fell from Heaven to Earthy site
Have we lost all the spessartite?

Will there come, 
the perfect gallant knight
to pierce straight through in flight
pulling away the murky pall
Cleansing the shame of The Fall
restoring peace and love outright.

Jingle Poetry at Olive Garden~Poetry-Picnic-Week-30-Doubts-Fears~ Why Growing Fears are Bringing Tears ~

Why Growing Fears are Bringing Tears 
Falling tears
Now streaming down the pale cheeks, 
Now drying the lashes – 
Seeming shocked spears; 
Laughter and smiles 
Suddenly stopping for miles 
Just sounds of sirens and screams- 
Shattered are the dreams; 
What life is to be? 
To be or not to  be? 
Murder most foul in Kingdoms 
Or in my very own country- 
Flee Flee Flee Homo Fugee- 
OH Dear I am a Born Refugee 
Where do I take refuge 
with blasts occurring so huge 
Bloody bodies scattering like sedge

Far and wide from edge to edge 
And I with growing fears 
Of what will be the end of Years? 
War terror killing is All One hears; 
Who are they?  The Taliban? 
What people what religion what clan? 
Growing Fears for Our Children 
Families and Brethren 
We want Peace Love Life not Tears 
Peace like the Greeks, Peace o
f Holy Life 

No road blocks curfews blackouts and bans- 
Oh Lord Illumine brightly what is deep and dark 
Forgive us and save us from this 
Hideous ruin rummage Abyss 
Bring calm to my growing fears 
All is not Lost we can still stop 
The warfare-  with talk justice and prayer.

~ Neglected Load Carrier ~

Lately I have been thinking
about the precious one
load carrier for everyone
how it is laughed at
and mocked and made fun
of, pushed and shooed away;

how they starve 
how they trod
how they pull
whether its a kilo
or whether its a ton;

Lately I have been thinking
of those in Texas
going astray
seeking food
in hungry mood
they wander around
parched, they bray

I am now thinking if I had a farm
I would bring them all here
feed them and keep them warm
 they are free to roam chew the food
left and thrown everywhere
they can bray and plod and hob
they will be busy 
and not out of a job
