Poetry.

rhymes and reasons
lamentations and expressions
heart of hearts
sacred art
when lines fail
disguise the details

color and tone
words unsaid on the telephone
language of my weather
tongues on speechless paper
scenic and metaphorical
allegorical and whimsical

formed to impress
intended to digress
these fingers sculpting verses
with some touches and nuances
cuddle and mold like pottery
these ordinary days are but poetry.

Heart

Where shall we start
When the world is crumbling apart?
This strength is bickering like a tiny spark
Even so, take courage and take heart

Walk the earth in acres of sorrow
To face the day and a fickle tomorrow
No, don’t you give up fast
Even now, take good care of your heart

Found

Caught up in this sound
This sound where my heart is found
Beating inside this love all around
Lost in your song where I am forever bound

Caught up in this sound
This sound where all noises drown
Breathing inside this melody
Your music calls and pulls me to your symphony

Heaven

Open up, I’m standing by
God, you hear enough a sigh
My breath is knocking on your heart’s door
You know I wanna be on heaven’s floor

Open up, I’m standing by
I just wanna see how you smile
So God, I’ll sing below your window
And catch a light casting your shadow

Galaxy and ABC

You scribbled a drawing of a galaxy
From point A to point B
As easy as 1-2-3
Everything came to be

Your eyes watch the galaxy
From point A to point B
You found me lost in between
And saved me from far drifting

I don’t wanna land on the moon
Don’t wanna land too soon
Until I land on Your heart to belong
And be abducted where rainbows throng

‘Cause I’m a voyager wandering away
Like a rocketship in disarray
In search of Your heavenly home
Let the Morning Star lead me on

Losing Faith, Losing Sight

Losing faith is losing sight
Do we back down and give up the fight
Crawl facedown afraid of heights
Disrupt your wings and cancel all your flight

Losing faith is losing sight
The light is bright but it seems days are nights
Daunted and never stirred by all this plight
Deny your might and cry “my oh my”

Tornado winds are harsh but not for long
Get down to the ground ’cause your knees are strong
Mountains quake but your heart they can’t take
Heaven and earth watch so courage you can’t fake

Words

Can’t find words to say
I can only the find words to write
And I wrote a song for you
A song I can’t find a melody to

And this heart only knows a beat
Syncopated in vast nervousness
Funny how my folly retreats
And my pride sings in all my shyness

Blanked out silent as I lay
I barely could whisper your name
It is what my lips can only say
Crazy speechless in disarray

Daydreamer

Wake me up, O heavenly peace
And catch the sun’s morning kiss
Past the moon’s evening breeze
And make up for yesterday I’ve missed

The night is over
Yet my eyes still surrender
The night is over
Arise, daydreamer

And what would it take to be alive
When all along sleep is a disguise
Should I set my reveries aside
And wake me up with a heavenly surprise
