let it be

When a high tide roars with thunder

And my ship shakes with terror,

Queen of Peace comes from heaven

Telling me words of consolation:

“Let nothing disturb you, just let it be

Let nothing frighten you, it will pass away,

Nothing is forever, fear gets you nowhere.

The old has gone, the new has come;

Declare Hope from Despair in Light from Dark, 

Follow the North Star, even if you doubt it.”

Then her words become music soft and sweet

Crept on shining waters with the reflection of stars,

Allaying the temptuous temper of the sea and mine.

Secret Garden

Behind the doors 

Of the labyrinth

Is the secret garden

Of iris and amaranth

Minotaur tended alone

With tears of sorrow

For the love denied

With the joy of beauty

The flowers brought

To the heart of gold

Basked in the hope

That one day love

Would find him anon. 



I ride on the wings of the wind

Flying high o’er the mountains

Across the deep, vast oceans

Touching the lovely fluffy clouds

Breasting the pure sea breeze

In the soft sweet hues of sunset

Lingering in the dazzling twilight

And find my star shining bright.
