Three degrees hotter

Standard
Three degrees hotter

Three degrees hotter in the future

Means the world’s going to burn

Three degrees hotter

And yet we still don’t learn

Three degrees hotter

Enough for skin to burn

Three degrees hotter

Yet still not enough concern.

Unacceptable

Standard

The world burns and this is unacceptable

Not enough done by those who are electable

The whole world seems less intellectual

As it reads less and care less and is spiritually less reachable

With empathy not so detectable

With love abandoned because it became labelled

And anything that has a label just like we has a price

So it gets sold to the highest bidder

Which just is not acceptable

But through conditioning and media we’re susceptible

And on many levels way to gullible

And during this time of mass distraction

We do not see what is happening and what’s in action

Our plastic, garbage filled highly world is burning

Which is just unacceptable to me

It all stems from man’s insatiable greed

Which leaves many without any food to eat and dying of disease

Humanity has found a way to perfect inflicting misery

Upon this earth and everything upon it

And that’s just in way acceptable.

Communing with nature

Standard
Communing with nature

At the headland of the coast

Muted in Jurassic memory,

The wind blew all around me

The cliff crumbling right under my feet,

The dark clouds rolling in from the horizon

The power of the sea drowning out words I may speak,

But here I stand defiently in still of mind and heart

And here I stand on strong legs,

Witnessing nature’s forceful art

In mindfulness I reach outward,

And feel it’s passionate splendour

Desperate and frustrated how much it had been plundered

I let my consciousness engage with nature,

The earth, the wind, the sea,

I communed with all that is

And asked forgiveness for our terrible ills,

And in my peace and breath by breath

I felt myself and nature connect,

Now the ground rumbles no more

And the sea was calm and the clouds opened up,

And a ray of sun broke through to give light

In a way serene, holy and divine,

And all was now once again fine

But not forever if we don’t change,

And nature will no longer listen this way

And it may be the end of days.

Sea rage

Standard

The raging sea roars in anger and contempt

Breaking against rocks and cliffs causing ships to wreck,

Angry is the sea as it roils and boils in a tumult

The maelstrom of foamy passionate rage surges on,

Wave after wave and rage upon rage

Angst against this wasteful polluting age,

The sea in its powerful anger threatens to lay us all to waste,

Waves of attrition, of hydraulic action

Waves of corrosion, solution and corrasion,

All of these actions damaging the land that we live on

The brings down the headland with very little qualms,

The sea it rages on, tearing things apart,

With its power and relentless surging,

Almost as the sea is trying to be purging

All forms of dirty polluting parasites,

From this natural world

It promises to end it all of waves of foamy, angry, curls.

Bright lights and fame

Standard

I wonder how it would feel

All of the bright lights

And basking in the fame,

Where your work is well known

And everyone knows your name,

Where your words make a difference

And they effect real change,

I cannot lie I’d like to taste this

Even for just a short time,

And every word comes from the heart

I won’t be just spinning words that rhyme,

Because that’s how I’ve always loved my life

Except outside of the spotlight, the limelight,

Always out of sight and out of mind

So I’ve be waiting patiently biding my time

But my feeling is it won’t happen, I’ve excepted that

But I keep on right on track,

Dreaming of the bright lights and the fame

Persevering on to finally make my name,

Into the lips of those who hear and know the truth

About what I write about and offer for you to peruse,

And it make me happy knowing that you do

So in my own little micro world,

I have achieved what I wanted to do

To catch the attention of at least one or two,

People who understand the struggles we go through

Putting down our hearts on paper and baring our souls to the few,

While dreaming of the bright lights and fame in all truth

But I am still sadly a long way back in the queue,

So don’t hold your breath about seeing my name too soon

Up there in lights.

All lives matter

Standard

Australia proves in the midst of the fires

All lives matter so don’t get this crosswired

Humans, animals all living breathing things

Are deserving of protecting

So let’s stand in this moment and think again

All lives matter in everything.

Step by step

Standard

Step by step

Into the darkness

Step by step

Into the smoke

Step by step

Into the heat and flames

Step by step

We start to descend

Blindly into our own

Self destruction

Through our own ignorance

Step by step

To self extinction

Is it not time to open our eyes

And start to take steps back

Or we are going to burn

Burn in the fires

Created by a lack to really care

Or maybe even to understand

Trying to not look scared

But we all should

So let’s just take a few steps back

And work on how to change things

And to turn it around

Step by step

That time is now.
