Love was all to me

There was a time when love was all to me
a tangerine, the taste in my mouth 
such a heat, a fret in a hug
or the thought of this all.

Today?! Why talk of what is yet to go?
May there be a lover, a surprise in me.
Of out there no word is left to say
nor strength to listen, if the wind tossed a word.

walking slow not to miss a thing

garden so dandy as his face
almost open gates, broken old walls
close your yes once more, please

Green Manifesto

I suffer a strong lobby of worms eating me up the roots
they want me to say amen to their delight  and join in 
as my atoms give up being me and dream of becoming trees
"no groans, no tears" they say in their green manifesto 
for a while I understand, but its only half me left to plug in
and as I finish this, there may be only the remembrance of ...

My destiny!

Boring for the day, no qualms, I dive
touring the sky as a star to be
deep where diamonds are common  matter
and I, a rare one to see.

My destiny!

We are not to expect the world to be good to us, we are the goodness of God to the world, starting with small things and with those we know and like the least!

The "jesus disease"

These days, our side of the world suffers from the "jesus disease"  and is spiritually dyeing from it. Unless we recover Jesus from the easy religion of the majority, Christianity here will soon be but a bad joke.
