beyond the creek's bend sight unseen still it must flow but how do we know
blossoms and decay from rose to a tangled rot such is this, our lot #boo
bypass the hazard detours become the way true closure's clarity
thine eyes seek not truths they seek only what's been shone trust thine heart alone
the moon that waxes is also the moon that wanes beauty has phases
reach beyond thy reach seek far beyond thy vision dream beyond beyond
when dusk draws the dew when dark rises from the dell when sad lows linger
what is it we seek yea, that cannot once be found with a soul upturned
life beyond the fields too, has its risings, settings tho' absent such sol
though blossoms sweet 'tis love 'lone before my eyes your love, my love sweet

cosmos expanding new horizons revealing all that's before us
it's not where you are it's why and it's how you are it's the now you are
Where does It come from The Matter of Science The That of God We think we know We believe we know But we're wrong And we're right You think I don't I believe You won't The Matter The That Forever trapped We are - within our thoughts within our beliefs - within an eternally transcendent …

As a child we had Scythes and Sickles But we didn't use them They just hung on nails in the garage Silent Anachronistic Magnetic Still able but worthiness superseded by the Pains and Privileges of Progress Then comes a day one Glorious Magical day when a Motorcycle appears And of a sudden the Sickles and Scythes become …

from the yestern day comes what may to the morrow this day I shall be
it is the moment it is the now of our lives one blink of an eye
Nothing lasts Not the blossom Not the stone Nothing lasts Less the impermanence of it all

when the sun rises it's not really doing so it's an illusion but lo how an illusion can burn hearts with desire
Leave the world to me Let me find the ways To my truths of the moments Until the end of my days Leave me the purpose as well And all meaning and mights And all heartbreak and lost sakes And all reason and rights It's from you I seek wonder And the thrill of the …
