- Rhyme and Reason Volume Two - 3/4 -


Yet lay hope for morrow Lift that blanket over you Till grass is wet with dew Lift your head to a new morn you'll be long way from forlorn greet sunrise with relish bid sunset with a wish 8>)

A Year Of Changes :

A year of welcomes and partings short jaunts and long meanderings of prosaic and verse wanderings sustained efforts and constant dartings

A year of comings and goings sure-footed steps and trippings swift stirrings and quiet mullings along known paths and new turnings 8>)

Another Round(for my friends) :

Wishing you joys plenty and setbacks few Like the seasonal changes right on cue Friendship true cloys not but breathes anew Bursting with good faith and goodness due 8>)

Eight Lines :

Things said are said fully Deeds done are done truly There shan't be lies to grieve If truth is like a sieve

When wits are matched Our minds are lighted When sins are hatched Our joys are blighted 8>)

Dose Of Happiness :

Feast on meals healthy and hearty moods brightened by fair company amidst weather fine and agreeable chosen activities are feasible with pleasant and peaceful repose awashed with life's joyful dose 8>)

Under The Influence :

Resolute we are to mark treasures with length and breadth of finite measures as if their expanse explains indulgence where passion and devotion fuse at confluence 8>)

Grant Me A Moment :

Grant me a moment its tarrying worth so I may savour my own lingering that later at length I could with mirth dub it a spell apt for remembering 8>)

The Best Seat :

Seated amongst fondest of friends I took my place with much relish there's truth that happiness depends on presence of those we cherish 8>)

Simple Worship :

Elaborate rituals and traditions serve to lengthen the divide between what believers wish to state and supposed obligations that come with prayers.More often than not, such rituals are man-made rules meant to lend mystical, mysterious air to worship. In fact how we worship is as bare knuckles as simple sincerity.

Rituals and traditions do not enhance spiritual health of the faithful.They prolong the physical manifestation of worshipping taken to (at times)zealous and elitist degree. It bewilders those who approach religion with the aim of simple worship and sincere intimations. The imposition of man-made strictures and selfish interpretations magnifies the measure of spiritual desolation and logical confusion when welcome and solace are sought.

It is hurtful and spiritually repulsive to have a monk, priest or medium severely chastise a worshipper for menial violations, made out of ignorance, for the common people are not as well schooled in so-called religious conventions. It is their duty to guide and courtesy to instruct. No believer and worshipper comes with willful intent to cause sacrilege. That goes against the purpose and effort of one's presence. Again, it is caused by the imposition of rituals and ceremony which causes the divide.

A believer comes, settles in a prayerful pose and speaks one's heart, spills worries, mentions cares and wishes hopes for the numerous tomorrows ahead. It is a simple affirmation of faith and a private conversation with the Maker. What transpires in every session is a mutual secret between believer and Divine. A simple act that can be replicated at home in the confines of the room. 8>)

Savage Civilization :

Known civilization was once overrun by wild tribes. Humanity once again threatens itself; by overrunning itself from within. When decency becomes an underground outlawed movement, if civilization glorifies its own demise and luxuriates in the stream of crumbling plaster and concrete, that is when the very term 'civilization' becomes a meaningless warble of groans.

Before this desperate nightmare transmutes into hopeless reality, we need to pinch ourselves and come to our senses by putting our chaotic house in order. We are our own worst enemy and our likeliest saviour. 8>)

Raindrops :

Those who plan to go on foot bide time till lashing water slackens its vehemence upon the earth. Overfed sod forms mud puddles. Drenched concrete turn shades darker. Windows and screens are glazed with hazy film. Droplets streak randomly along crooked paths, from the steepest incline to the base. Trails of clear watery streaks slice through round and oval drops , speedily and decisively, like drunken comets. 8>)

Circumstantial Standpoint :

It's nothing but circumstances between us. Circumstances determine who orders the charge and who charges, who lords over all and who the servants are, who rests atop pedestals and who shoulder their weight, who stands on the rostrum and who stand on the plains.

Mere circumstances divide us. They determine who bears the moral responsibility, who does or refrain from the deed, those who are garbed and crowned with honour , those besmirched with infamy.

It's nothing but circumstances between us. Their plot is such that there are those who are heralds, those who are heralded and those who are unheralded masses. Mere circumstances stretch and fill possibilities within the circumstantial spectrum. 8>)

Just Passing By :

Questions and reality of mortality meet us head on. They are inescapable in this mortal sphere. With each experience we grow towards maturity and acceptance of the frailties of the flesh in Life's autumn. Mortality steps on our plate. It comes with mounting frequency. Rising generations. Receding elders. They meet , then one of them become recollection. 8>)

Workers Of The Land :

Let's turn our plaudits from urbane beings to workers of the land. Ever so often overlooked in this age of metropolis. Their handiwork beget sustenance which we require to sustain life and maintain our well being. The country's produce douses bothers of hunger, satiates palates. Their bread and butter , our bread and butter. Workers of the land, at times contemned, dismissed as simpletons. Give them their due. Short change them not with regard. The earth had been generous to them when our tongues were miserly. Workers of the land, nurtured by the earth and they nurture the earth in return for its gifts. 8>)

Rest :

Sleep is relief between exertions and effort we demand from ourselves. Much as we crave to eject all stops , the flesh craves due rest. The sword misses its scabbard. It returns to its housing when warlike vigilance is out of place. Take rest when your being needs its nourishment. Resume your affairs when refreshed. Thoughts dart. Senses sharpened. Limbs have their nimbleness returned. Go fly into the arena. Spend strength inside. When weariness gives the cue, come right back to
