A Short Spiritual for Sunday


To leave this planet

on a chariot of light

spread knowledge of wilderness

among many worlds

training with intricate tool

knock on a Travellers door


Morning always comes

as a golden voice from the sky

the words of birds wings in flight

heard from forest grove

lyrics from many flowers

baskets empty minds astray


Weary from struggle

too tired to find gladness

waited only for darkness

did  not notice you

sit peacefully by my side

playing music on guitar


There remains singing

even though I cannot sing

I keep stringing instruments

this a simple gift

of song and body and mind

day by day I am worthy


An ache of longing

for that vague strange sweet fragrance

that comes with breath of summer

so moves our own heart

like launching a boat from shore

burden of faded flower


I arise alone

move aside to avoid you

powerful voice of nature

I am full of shame

to be in your great presence

and let you embrace my heart



My life useless tunes

I hope to play on gold harp

after being commanded

to share morning song

invitation to the world

festival of life’s blessings


Shadows of July

rain on secret steps we walk

seems morning may have eyes shut

on us in East Wind

all we hear is want of rain

bring your dream into my house


Continue to walk

alone down this same old path

notice the sounds from behind

you are always there

you will follow me through time

while I barely notice tread


Busy work is done

those who come to call go home

people blame others

outside in the rain

I stand without a raincoat

outside without a shelter


Abroad in the storm

open my door to a friend

seems lost in an ink black dim

lost in depth of gloom

come in my house till day is done

stay till the birds sing again


What crimes committed

placed you in this prison cell

a worrisome criminal

committed no crimes

visit without fear of time

built this private prison with wealth

    There seems to be lonesome calls in the night as you search spiritually for deeper meaning? But…You sure put the words together so much that the reader must travel along…hoping he knows what mindset will ultimately come after the “Shadows of July”…guitar strumming, long nights, busy work, and a dark storm that is either present in the writer or the visitor (or both)…or lingering outside. I hope I came close to the mark…because it is very deep …and intertwined within our Spiritual Being.
