Mystery II


Washed in the darkness
With the thick night pushing me
Clouds of unknowing

‘Cross the starry field
Mirrored in the deep blue sea
Disturbed by passion

Buffeted by winds
The ocean swells and threatens
Down, I will not go

Reaching for the truth
A life-line of certitude
A raft of reason

Watch beauty ascend
Her halo burning brightly
Slip the solar disk

Seeking out the good
Journey into mystery
Take the cup of fire

The world falls away
And I fall with it, bonded
Sleeping with the dead

Separate from God
These elusive mysteries
I have no answers

Meaningless riddles
Static, in the flow of time
Self dissolution

Cloister


Safe in the cloister
Safe within cold walls, withdrawn
The world melt away

A yearnings beckons
The slow impulse of desire
Confused and abstract

Fusing and diffusing
A failure of discernment
Wandering Errant

Psychedelia
Psychology of the cave
Elusive shadows
           
Nobody cares for
Coffee hose philosophies
Issued without risk

Listen to the sage
The nomad from the desert
The Israelite wrote

It is meaningless
Meaningless, everything is
Empty, every word

Fenris Wolf


The gathering void
Sophistry and dark whispers
Thought without action

A habit of mind
The echoes of ideas
The essential me

Madness prevailing
A heartless wind is blowing
Law without justice

The relentless chase
Realized, and never fulfilled
The wolf my Id

Ragnorak begins
Roll-up the world like a blanket
Un-roll it, new

Elusive monster
Insane, howling for the kill
Fenris Wolf, demanding

Seeing everything
Your jaws crush complacency
The howl of triumph
