Ghost

Dimly lit and cooly kept,

Into my sacred space, I crept

To glimpse anew the rising sun

And witness nighttime on the run.

Yet I know in times ahead,

The Sun will lay herself in bed,

Night will once more take her post,

And then today will be a ghost.

Gaze Anew

All the gains our world can give

Cannot replace our time to live.

So limited in days are we

That from our blindness we must flee.

We must make time for joy, to be,

With no thought of utility.

A dollar lost, a dollar gained

Cannot suffice when time has waned.

With open eyes, let’s truly see

The depths of our mortality;

Then turn our eyes to gaze anew

Upon the life we thought we knew.

Awake!

The Path goes on it’s merry way;

No stopping, speeding, or delay.

How much travel have we missed

Caught in Sleep’s seductive fist?

‘Tis not the sleep we need for rest

In order that we do our best,

But that which keeps us from the Light;

That Sleep which robs one’s mind of sight.

We tend to walk distractedly,

Not looking up that we might see

How quickly life is passing by,

Our time a breath, a gasp, a sigh.

It’s time now that we fin’lly wake

And give our drooping head a shake.

Ignore the Circus, loud and bright

Let’s focus now with all our might!

There’s much to see, yes, much to learn

With every dip and every turn;

Twixt this Earth and the Sky above,

So many Ones for us to love.

Keep walking, turning, soak it in!

Now is the time. Awake! Begin!
