Moonlight Words

Have I reached the summit? 

Of my Mt Kosciusko 

Is it time to retire? 

To the valley below Mt Beauty 

Or will I remain here? 

Within the shadows of our You Yangs 

My mind is tired 

And these old bones 

Are pointing down 

I wake up with a frown 

Like I am wearing King Charles’ heavy crown  

Ironically, the day after my finest hour 

I am writing these words 

For you to read 

For everyone to read 

My quill is yet to run dry 

Nor has my river of tears run dry 

And my dreams continue to fly 

Freely under the moonlight sky

A Crescendo For Peace

The weather is wet and windy here in Ballarat, but that does’t matter. I’m resting, relaxing, and enjoying the break. Today’s poem is from June 2019.

A Crescendo For Peace

Sounds of music, ring in my mind

Our hearts beat, to a slow drum

My soul hears the rhythm of life

I see angels playing a harp’s serenade

In harmony with the royal string quartet

Grand orchestra’s loudly join in

And choirs of the world are singing our song

Together, chiming the peace-bells of our time

Creating a crescendo of music, ringing in my mind
