The coming

Trees and stars fill our minds

Seeing the portents

Changing fortunes of time

We see the noise

Worry at the haste

To descend the dark imaginings

That bring confusion to our life

But ahead is our goal

No one will make us shake

We will never fear them

So face them without surrender

Springtime thoughts

It is raining again

Showers will come

Gales will batter our shore

The storms will press

Till we don’t want any more

Past the snow the cold will numb

the arthritis in our hands

The cataracts will be lifted

In the coming Spring

We will see our future

As the May begins

The summer ends

A hive of praying hands were freezing blue

A night past Monday they thought of you

Buzzing round their queen so very cold

Not knowing lives she bought and sold

Until it’s them that takes the wrath

Leading them to take your path

As the smoke clears

Beyond the sea, interesting conversations

That could wake the dead, become real

All to make a small fortune for the already rich

In the morning, as the smoke clears

Landing craft approach, cutting through the waves

We are steady, but retire

Walk don’t run, is said

Wait for the cover

Now run like hell, we scatter
