MEDITATION

Surrounded by strife
I smile benignly.
I’ve lived a life
surrounded by strife.

Removed, as with a knife,
stress is taken away Divinely.
Surrounded by strife
I smile…benignly.

The Hand Of Despair

THE HAND OF DESPAIR

Through the fog of the unknown
the hand of despair reached out
to take away what I could not own.
Through the fog of the unknown
I felt empty, alone.
Full of fear, and doubt.
Through the fog of the unknown
the hand of despair reached out.

PALETTE-ABLE LIFE

When
he feels
his world has
faded to black,
he reaches for his
palette and putting brush
in motion–warmth of yellow,
coolness of blue, passion of red,
green growth, and sacred purple–his world
comes back to life, one color at a time.
