In The Heart of Every Man

Below the blue ice shines, the clouds they form a heaven.
Between the earth and stars the thin horizon line is endless.
Before watchful eyes we wander both near and yet so far.
From the highest perch we watch ourselves and wonder who we are.

To let go and trust our destiny in the Divine’s master plan.
For all the answers that we seek are in the heart of every man.

And the ageless pilgrim passes between the swords of right and wrong,
To dissolve the nature of extremes and sing his only song.
This is where we come to pass on all our lonely nights,
And days returned from distance shores are brought into the light.

To fulfil the sea’s devotion and the sky that soothes the land,
All these things they bloom inside the heart of every man.

The trees of day they wake to greet the sparrow’s gentle feet.
The brush of wind that watches in and cools the summer’s heat.
Then along the pathway seasons pass but nothing really does,
Only transcends back to innocence voice and innocent love.

In the wordless winds I think I hear a voice that understands,
That all are one beneath the sun and in the heart of every man.

Forever Springs

In the fields darkness falls
The cawing crow calls the moon
Alive with elation dreams.

Gone all too soon
The dance of the wind
Before we begin
To reach the temple;

Where love is blooming
In the shadows
By the alter
Inside my soul.

She worships you
Long and whole
Billowing bright
She bridges the night,
Calling the song of the sea.

Love was named after thee,
A whisper of dew on the flesh
Weaves through my heart.

Mountain springs well within,
Overflowing the tributaries
Flooding tears begin;
And rain, sweet rain.

Words cannot describe
The tender way I will hold you,
Hold you forever through life.
