Nothing

Sometimes i think i have nothing to say
but i say something anyway.
Then there are times when i know
i have nothing to say
and i say nothing.

The secret of poetry,
to say nothing,
as the drop of inspiration
meets an eternal lake of consciousness
and reverberates in words?

There are times when i say nothing
and everything which is needed is said:
Who can tell if it was the drop
or the lake which spoke?

How beautiful the still reflection
in an open heart...

Just Imagine

Just imagine
all is perfect, eternal
forever unchanging
pure as untarnished snow.

Just imagine
You are so free
the wind cannot move You
nor can the sea.

Just imagine
for a moment
that time can stand still
then move on at Your will.

Just imagine
a place
where the universe is
a very small fragment
of Your infinite bliss.

Everything Counts

Have you noticed
The delicate subtlety
Of slow melting ice?
Did you see as the trees
Stretched out their limbs,
Did you hear the flapping
Of the butterflies’ wings?

Did you notice the man
Hardly moving at all
Asleep on the bench
Under the ancient stone wall?
Did you feel the touch
Of a word whispered nearby,
Did you sense when it's time
To say that final goodbye?

Did you hear the pleading
In the loud man’s head
When he told you he’s fine
And he’s going to bed?
Do you feel the stars
Moving across dark inky skies,
Do you notice the poet
That silently cries?

Did you see in the eyes
Of the picture she made
The sadness which says
That she never forgave?
Did you hear high above
The loudness that shouts,
Those very quiet things
That say everything counts?
