the poet and the warrior

You always travel at my side,
In danger you protect my hide,
You are so strong and proud and brave,
When you're around I know I'm safe.

So expertly you wield the quill,
And shape the words with greatest skill,
Companion in the darkest night,
Together we win every fight.

You lived through many bloody wars,
Now justice is your righteous cause,
How many kings did you defy,
All tyrants fear your battle cry.

You are as witful as you're nice,
And always help me with advice,
I cherish everything you say,
Many a word saved our day.




drown out the onslaught
soothing noise for screaming eyes
all words are needles


maora knows the path

her deepest slumber
on the stairs to the sky
awakened at dawn
of the day called forever

we thirsted for wisdom
for bliss and the stars
never found ourselves
but the great maora provides

wherever she goes
the fabric will yield
touched ever so gently
space, time and mind

we are your guests
on a majestic journey
mere passing fluctuations
the bystanders of eternity

unfold history anew
life and death, over and over
toss us in, maora
make us live all the dreams

the wheel revolves once more
we can but follow
voyages from dust to dust
only maora knows the path
