èirigh na grèine / sunrise

Standard

I walk towards infinity. how good to   

finally be one with all in me. to lie down,   

in cool rained grass. to seek no more. 

to lay my limbs among the roots 

of trees.  s t r e t c h i n g  o u t  the dusk 

filled sky. to bleed forth dreams, 

into the sap of man. let go, to breathe 

to die. death as journey, 

the withered path inside. returning. 

recognition, under towering oak.

connecting roots, that flow beyond coming spring, 

return us to the blood of life. the beating 

damp earths soothe.

we whisper memory into the wind, 

as overhead, crow flies free, 

awakening earths sunrise.

Death lives encircling from womb
unto the tomb.
i can hear it in the call of the Raven,
in it’s uncomplicated instinct.
man hides within his degenerative fear,
amidst his pretence of Reality.
death is only nature Reborn
returning to the soil. nourishing all.
there is life after death.
our planet rejoices
accepting new life
in the coming dawn,
when we are gone.
footprints on the sand washing away.
unseen.
we are as if a Dream.
All things return in elemental
increments…

New Dawn / Dàn nuadh

Standard

DSC_0091_tonemapped

Never together
never one whole
beginnings in obliteration
power out of control
Suppression of a people
ignorance of who we are
arrogance in power
Weak from where we are

Change is tumbling forward
rumbling through the mist
rolling on the horizon
through the consciousness
Change will end their arrogance
Time is running out

They will be redundant
simply cease to be
drowned in their lack of vision
that will be their destiny

Change is tumbling forward
rumbling through all time
Our dawn is now
Our light will ever shine
