Crystal Writings Carved in Ice
 
Terrestrial lands of mortal men
Celestial vastness looms above
Stellar lights in heavenly realms
Astral bodies war
 
Voids of darkness deep below
Abyss too deep for love to show
Maelstrom deep neath oceans void
Turbulent forces rule
 
Whirlpools whip they rip and grasp
Mystical monsters from the deep
Enchantments spells and wizards runes
Bewitching all in cosmic spells
 
Magnetic forces lure and bait
Enticing all to taste its wares
Undulating notes as mermaids sing
Spiralling music through my mind
 
Spurting burst of solar flares
Thrusting forth their evil snares
Sucking all who enter there
Into fires below
 
Exploding lights in heavenly skies
Fountains clear of crystal bright
Cleansing waves of love’s pure light
Soaring down through heavens might
 
Poems come from mortal men
Truths in words they pen
Answers come though from beyond
As Prophets, Seers and Sages speak
 
Timeless writings all do read
Sagas, Odes and Ballads rhyme
Dancing stories players’ stage
Message deep within
 
Dreamers’ dance in poet’s rhyme
All performing tuneless jigs
Sorrow laughs as worlds do burn
Magic worlds explode
 
Weeping women mourn for love
Merry widows dance in joy
Children laugh as children do
Warriors wonder why
 
Life it seems is past belief
Yet we study seeking truth
Scholars spend their years in books
Yet answers still elude
 
Truth is simple words for all
Rich and poor or old and young
Black or white, male or female
Each a piece of all
 
Why then wars and discontent
Men do seek more than is meat
Ever wanting ever lost
Gathering riches for oneself
 
Self the god that most do follow
No one cares about his brother
Feeding souls with worthless fodder
What will happen next?
 
Listen to the song of nature
Hear its works in splendour
All creation singing loudly
Chaos everywhere
 
Who will learn I ask thee now?
Who will open heart asunder?
Who will take the step to freedom?
Who the shackles break?
