Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
Ashes to wings
Then rise it must
Ascended to the height
In glory bright
Until ashes
Come calling again

Fortified Vanities

Why do we build
Walls
Great and fortified
Proceeding
To satisfy
Our need
Of self-boundary
Extending
East to west
Built to last
Any test
Withstand
Any desiring army
Until their final
Breath
When
Invasion
Is inevitable?

METALLIC PATHOGENS

SONGSPIRATIONS 

When everything you touch

Turns to gold

Everything is precious 

The worthless 

Becomes worthy

Of a touch

The corruptible 

Desperately seeks

Incorruptibility 

Then everything in life

Has opportunity 

For preciousness 

With you

Poetry inspired by song

Artist: Imagine dragons

Album: Smoke and Mirrors

Song: Gold

Benjamin Thomas

BURIED IN HOPE

I’m buried
solid
within hope

I hear the
sound
of calming
voice

In quiet
speaking
mysteries that
quell my fears

Within
my ear
I still hear
his voice

Settled
upon my mind
rocking
my cries to sleep

Holding me
still
keeping me warm
in peace

BURY THE WORD

Bury the seed
deep
in soil of heart

And let it’s  roots
teem
stretch
spread
take part

In a majestic growth
to anchor the soul

BURY THE FATE?

You can’t bury
the crooked from the straight
while the truth lies in wait
for the beholder

For the crooked places
will be made straight
the high mountains
will be brought low

And those trees
will be uprooted
