Monday Poetry , Time along a rivers ……

I walk along a River of Time,
do I move or is it the waters?
Can I match its pace?

It flows by, driving my very thoughts,
without any meaning, in my reality,
for that I need to jump in !

Time is like the rivers flow 3

What day is this, what hour?
this flow has no meaning,
is it without power?
A cause without effect?

For me the water flows by eternally
but
It’s end is out at sea.

I Stand aware of my place in the Universe,
forever alive, outside of good or bad,
changing form so many times,
did I not come from this water?
I cannot remember!

Time is like the rivers flow 2

Neutral I stand, judging not,
Just watching this River.

It flows by,
with my fingers pushed in,
Momentarily touching me,
It’s power drives me on!

This river is all about the giver …
The Universe of power ….
The one without time…

Gods our Sun and its Autonomy, a Poem.

Last Night I sat down and wrote my first Poem for a while, I was sorting through some Landscape Images and found a collection that I took earlier in the year.

These images are all taken Directly into the Sun, I love to play with the effects that the sun can create in a lens.

The subject of the sun in images I also find very inspiring, its our very life force and has fascinated mankind through out our long history, in both art and all the many religions we have followed.

Sometimes I feel that to use your eyes and clear your mind and just look at the landscape in front of you, on a clear day to just look up and the sun is freedom itself ! . In these moments there is no confusion of religion or even Science, Just yourself standing and looking at the world around you !!

Gods our Sun and it’s Autonomy

As a single cloud floats by and winds coerce,
I desire alone the Sun to have such might and force.

When Gods Command the ageless trees,
a boundless cosmos is all I ask for to see.

Not simply the power of a signal God alone,
But infinite forgiving universal love,
contained forever within time and space.

A completely cosmic power,
open to all and with in the grasp of my simple mind,
open and without fear of a hidden world.

As the Stars stride through horizons and winds twist forests trees,
I only plead to be just as free.

A Grain Of Sand, Poem by Robert William Service

A Grain Of Sand

Poem by Robert William Service

If starry space no limit knows
And sun succeeds to sun,
There is no reason to suppose
Our earth the only one.
‘Mid countless constellations cast
A million worlds may be,
With each a God to bless or blast
And steer to destiny.

Just think! A million gods or so
To guide each vital stream,
With over all to boss the show
A Deity supreme.
Such magnitudes oppress my mind;
From cosmic space it swings;
So ultimately glad to find
Relief in little things.

For look! Within my hollow hand,
While round the earth careens,
I hold a single grain of sand
And wonder what it means.
Ah! If I had the eyes to see,
And brain to understand,
I think Life’s mystery might be
Solved in this grain of sand.
