Online Hate. A Free-style Sonnet
Hate begins within, in the seed of night;
A lit candle will not manifest darkness;
A radiant flower, will only express the Light.
The searchlight of Love must light a path,
Into the minds of tangled webs. Online spite
May evoke disdain, yet its heart is the true
Citadel, that deals with searing pain.
It is safer and cleverer to shout from home,
Than to engage in a face to face at Sainsbury’s.
While the weak may never bully the strong,
The insecure will even attack their shadows!
True greatness reveals itself, in the solitude
Of those who Love. Opinions, opinions, opinions;
My thoughts run riot, as restless monkeys prance.

A Stairwell to Heaven
Merging my Breath, With a Magical Silence
Soft, soothing arias, call to my Heart,
Opening a stairwell to heavenly Love.
A pageantry of flowers garlands my soul;
I hear without ears and speak without tongue.
Into the portals of meandering hills, sanctity
Whispers to blossoms, revealing a lushness that calms
My Being. I gaze at a kaleidoscope of beauty, tugging at
The tears of my eye-lids, dripping the colours of joy.
Just yesterday, walking upon the Dales of
Derbyshire, I dreamt of fading summer --of
Rose-tinted autumn trees; of magenta leaves
In flight, cascading the sparkling rays of sunset.
Now I dine in a tapestry of perennial grandeur,
Merging my breath with a magical Silence.

Wisdom from the Master
"Everything in life is a choice."
"A mind of worry is simply a wasted life."
"Your present conditions, are the best possible ones, for your advancement."
"You have had an unpleasant experience
And you will not be happy, until you stop thinking about it." - Sri Chinmoy
