Gray Cloud

and what gray cloud is this

I see before me, it rains

singing its familiar hiss

and what gray cloud is this

it’s presence I will miss

the songs harmless and insane

and what gray cloud is this

I see before me, it reigns

Infinite

Painting by Andrew Forrest

my heart merrily cries out your name

will this wild beating ever be tame

you are the delight within my soul

the very breath fueling my bright flame

hand in hand we take a long stroll

our love as infinite as a grain

my heart merrily cries out your name

we are the infinite that remains

no higher level can be attained

there’s no thought of losing control

there are no tears falling down like rain

you’ve loved me, thus making me whole

and this life will never be the same

will this wild beating ever be tame

and this life, this love never the same

you’ve loved me, thus making me whole

will this wild beating ever be tame

my heart merrily cries out your name

Clouds of Longing

Painting by Jason Chan

The morning sun is shining yet there is a chill in my bones I cannot shake. I peek through the clouds of longing; searching once more for your presence.  I sledgehammer the wall of your resistance with raining love – but I still gain no entry.  Oh, how my heart pounds when I see your lovely face! My hands would love to caress your cheek and sing my heart’s song to you.  Please don’t go – remain in my sight until the moon climbs into the darkened sky.  My tears raining down from on high have grown a rose garden that shall warm your heart.  I will take flight on our love if you would only let me in.  From the moment I felt your soul’s essence I have sought to unify our hearts.  You are my other – I shall travel down from these clouds – to be unashamed in your presence.  The earth rumbles with my heartache – as you disappear from my sight once more. How long shall I await your return?! I will wait on my cloud of longing – slumbering with peace – the stars my blanket – the moon my laughing pillow.

Storms

fiercely blowing wind

ruffling the feathers of my wings

fence has blown away

yet, still, I breathe

I look behind me and see

another fierce storm

smiling, breathing out pure rain

trapped in the circle

i pull away to mend the storm

only returning

when I have achieved my peace

I am tired, this is my entry for March 8. Be blessed!

Emotional Concerto

I heard your heartbeat pounding

in my ears all day long

then i woke up – and cried

a long hefty sigh leaves my lips and I wonder

where you could have gone

I can’t breathe, it’s too much to bear!

this empty room, these empty streets,

they need your presence!

how long must i wait!

the hollowness in my heart

echoes into the universe

the clouds cry my tears

as the birds sing my heart’s song

– and the angels –

the angels smile at my emotional concerto

such a silly one, this girl

does she not know God loves her?

does she not know He will triumph?

do not worry – for He is always there

you are not alone

Speak

 Find the sunshine you seek

Though the rain clouds may leak

Onto the ground, into the cracks

Til the whispers do speak

Reminding us the love we lack

Til the sun’s light is weak

Find the sunshine you seek

 

Love and laughter, antique

Can’t they dance cheek to cheek

Strong hands in the small of her back

And they don’t even speak

As the unseen armies attack

They ignore piercing shrieks

And the rain clouds, they leak

 

The lone whispers, they speak

Reminding us the love we lack

Though the rain clouds may leak

Find the sunshine you seek

Stillness

Raindrops evaporate, stillness arrives

The darkness of the world has come alive

Where has hope hidden its reign

How will the ones left behind survive

When the darkness does enchain

And all love and all peace have been deprived

Raindrops evaporate, stillness arrives

 

In the stillness, monsters have come alive

Devouring dark souls, seeing this I’ve

Hidden on the midnight train

My breaths shallow and meant to revive

All the existence lived thus far in vain

Who will hear these men, and give them shrive

The darkness of the world has come alive

 

How will the ones left behind survive

When the darkness does enchain

The darkness of the world has come alive

Raindrops evaporate, stillness arrives
