Garden of Peace

  magnolia

To feast the day long
Open wide my heart
To ethereal song

Eyes engage to see
The light inside the dawn
The possibility

Beam of true colours
The gateway to heaven
Is found here in others

The path seems so real
The garden on earth, here,
Today, in how I feel

Only now I do tell
Mind, printing paradise
Carries peace where I dwell

Weekly Writing Challenge: Time for Poetry

Place of Solace

High winds challenge the beams
Drafts that succumb the seams
Candles dance, sway and flicker
Sunlight appears as glitter

Stone pillars up high captures
The ceilings heavenly rafters
Glimpses of small angelic faces
Wings of cherubim’s hiding places

Sandstone patterns in lattice
A gemstones emulating facets
Rainbow light beaming down
On a crucifix, a thorny crown

Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument

Monuments to Highness and Hero

King Stephen’s land and monasteries

Of vales of nightshade by the trees

To Orders abolished and Abbeys ceased

 

Monuments of a town come to be

From a small hamlet by the sea

Migrant workers came for liberty

 

To revolution, iron ore industries

Building ships for Royals and Admiralties

To skilled worldwide expertise

 

 All traces of glorious histories

That have been throughout centuries

A story to be told of local dignataries

Daily Prompt: Wasted Days and Wasted Nights

Fountains Abbey

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wasted Days

When time stands still
With hours to fill
Only clouds move by
Till dawn of next sky

Impatience is bound
For a new venture found
As days come to keep
The purpose we seek

The wasting of time
Wishing forward a crime
Anxiousness to weep
As golden days sweep

Longing to move on
A trepidatious song
Only keeps us from joy
With trickery, a ploy

Wishing time to the past
Hours to roll on fast
A life of speeding motion
A pebble in the ocean

Still the mind on track
Minutes, hours, to not lack
The seconds we have today
Are not stolen or mislaid
