November

The setting of the seasons
Like the setting of the sun
Brings closure to this day
Or perhaps a thousand years
And the cycle ever turning
Upon these hallowed shores
Brings the new beginnings
That all of life is waiting for
Kneeling in the shadows
Just outside the door
Waiting for renewal
And the faith
For so much more
And it’s to this ancient rhythm
That all creation sings
The chorus  of the heavens
Marshalling the spheres
And the seasonal procession
Of the symphony of years

Dark horses

Only a very dark horse
Discerns the true color
Like a lone bird of prey
Returning late from the hunt
Only the wary and watchful
Only the blackest of sheep
Understand what it means
Or know how it feels
Out in the darkest of nights
Out on the meanest of streets
To stand in the rain
And wait for the light
For the dawning of purpose
With the will to submit
Not just hearing my voice
But knowing my face
Only a very dark horse
Can follow my gaze
Only a very dark horse
Can discern
The true color
Of my eyes

Desert

I came to the desert
To leave the shadows I’ve known
To follow the wind
And to be alone
I came to this place
To look for my soul
To learn the secrets of silence
That have never been told
And its here in this place
Away from myself
That the truth comes closer
Then anywhere else
And here it’s revealed
It’s here that I know
The fabric of time
And the essence of hope

All

All

Take the anger
And all of the shame
Take disappointment
And all of the pain
Take unforgiveness
And bitterness
Take everything that should not be
Then pick up all that’s left
Help me to see this thru
Offer every broken piece to you
The part of me that clings to life
The part that just wants to die
I put the heart that’s bleeding still
Upon your alter to be consumed
So I can go free
To be your hands and voice again
