Rainy Days

rainy days

lead to contemplation

of past times

reminiscing distant dreams

of our lives

that have been spent

but renew again

we are sometimes left in wonder

of times long ago

which become our past

a score is settled

and those debts paid

and our dues

brought about a replacement

of what has been rendered

flying ducks

flying ducks

over the sea

like arrows

parting the skies

they know where they are going

we should follow them

to distant lands

there we shall have another life together

a dream to unfold

a beacon of hope

where we all rejoice

at last we have found our home 

Sparrow

sparrow fly away home

of all life’s desires

be the one

who holds dear

what life leaves behind for us

a shining star

in the vast cosmos

when all love is lost

be the spark

to reunite the two halves

bring back all light

banish the darkness

believe in oneself 

a guiding force of nature
