Mountaineer

Mountaineer

I understand the mountaineer,
to climb Everest because it’s there,
on the peak, to gaze through snow goggle glass,
smudged by mist and dew of cloud,
to see all horizons clear,
beyond, to what no one else could ever see,
to be in that icy moment,
truly happy, truly free,
to feel that you can,
enough to say out loud,
whirl the wheel around
to wheel around again,
to watch the world
unfurl its scarlet banners in the dawn,
hear the horns of the paradise temples drone,
to say I have found the sound
that will not sound again,
to say, yes, for this I was born,
in this dawn I was born today,
I whirl the wheel around
to wheel around again,
I have found the sound
that will not sound again,
I whirl the wheel around
to wheel around again.

No Shelter For A Sparrow

No Shelter For A Sparrow

Worst is when you want to cry
when there is no reason.
It’s just a summer passing by,
like any other season.

Best is when you want to be
where you are forever.
Though what will come you cannot see,
some ties will never sever.

First you wish for happiness,
for heaven every day,
to live in bliss and nothing less,
pray for love to come and stay.

Last you have your memories,
the beauty of the swan,
the peace that blows in with the breeze,
till the time you had has gone.

When you climb the mountainside,
the path high and narrow,
you will leave where no tears are dried,
no shelter for a sparrow.
