“I Am”

“I am” by Tpnud Hun (Buddist Monk) I am the mayfly metamorphosing on the surface of the river, I am also the bird, which when spring comes, arrives in time to eat the mayfly. I am a frog swimming happily in the clear water of a pool, I am also the grass snake who approaching continue reading…

Peace Prayer

MAKE ME A CHANNEL OF YOUR PEACE A PRAYER Make me a channel of your peace Where there is hatred let me bring you love.  Where there is injury, pardon Lord, And where there is doubt, true faith in You. Make me a channel of your peace.  Where there’s despair in life let me bring continue reading…

See Me!

When an old lady died in the geriatric ward of a small hospital near Dundee, Scotland, it was believed that she had nothing left of any value. Later, when the nurses were going through her meagre possessions, they found this poem.   Its quality and content so impressed the staff that copies were made and continue reading…

Do Not Grieve For Me

I am not there …………….. Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow.   I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning’s continue reading…

My Brother, My Love

In Loving Memory of John Victor Robinson (29th July 1943 – 17th June 1996) Yes…. perhaps now I can understand…… To me he was my Brother, my Sacred Twin.

The Sacred Light

The Sacred Light surrounded me, held me, bought me down the Lightening Flash; pausing at the Ancient Standing Stones of Wisdom, and then on to the Sea of Sorrows, where the tears rolled in understanding. And from the Sapphire Temple of Vision came the Masters in their sand-sun hazed robes, greeting and surrounding me, before continue reading…

Antiquity

I sit and daydream of what might be; my thoughts, wishes and aspirations for the future. How life has changed from the bustle of business to the nature of being, and the understanding of nature. Time has no limitations other than its passing. Free from its restrictions, I am the Master, I hold the key continue reading…

The Weaver

I stand alone in this darkened place And I have seen the fall from grace. I have learnt of wisdom born of strife, Encountered death in the midst of life. I have felt emotion red and raw.  Cried until I could cry no more. I have given and taken, how equal the scale? Always the continue reading…
