years

westwards

we fly

 

universe’s

grain –

in bloom

 

approaching –

departing

 

maturity –

future

past

 

whispering

in our hearts –

sovereignty

 

here –

a crescent

moon

 

wide

sky – deep

night

 

silver –

beauty

contained

 

noon –

surface of

water

 

the sun comes

in – at the

end of the day

 

sure

footed –

life

 

openness –

infinity

 

timeless –

time

 

today –

yesterday

tomorrow

 

above and

below

the surface

material

and spiritual

becomes

water

 

loss –

sinking

fate and

providence – earth

and sky

the light

of morning –

felt and seen

eternal

 

departing

endlessly

departing

 

life’s

core

 

faceless

 

life –

sinking

 

a dot –

beautiful

 

two cries –

birth

and death

 

humanity –

reflected

 

continuing –

day

by day

 

the end –

unseen

 

the day of birth

the day of death

 

evolutionary –

the air

 

lullaby –

past and future

forgotten

 

complex –

simplicity

 

lake –

sky’s

earth

 

late –

a garden

blooms

 

wind –

incarnate

 

sculptured

beauty

 

still life –

afternoon

 

sun

transfiguring

 

silence –

before and

after

 

the birds

calling

as before

 

unjust

today

tomorrow

 

life

gives

 

a child

remembers

 

unseen

seen

unseen

 

seven

times seven –

liberty

 

mirrored

 

a forest

in

a garden

 

beholding

 

galaxy

giving

birth

 

daylight –

night has

passed

 

late

afternoon

 

home –

outside

inside

 

spring light

 

lovely –

love

 

uncertain

unity

is it begin

 

dusk

and

hands

 

fragments

of yesterday and

tomorrow

inexpressible

expressed

 

a moment

of

eternity

 

ripples

of light

 

light

birthing

light

 

birds’

home

God revealed

 

humanity

 

eternity

light and

shadow

a mystery

harmony

 

life

and

death

perfect

imperfection

 

falling –

in the

breeze

and night

begin

another

day

on life

 

darkness

and dawn –

neighbours

 

eyes

attune –

future seen

 

mirrored –

future

seen

 

life –

like a dream

 

sky

on water

rests

 

a mirror

the sea

 

we hear

the sound

of water

 

silent

return

 

waves

forever

new

 

under

the sun – a

flower

 

wind

moves

the leaves

 

violin

orchards

 

life –

procedes

and recedes

 

a prelude

a postlude

 

tasting
