The Continuum of Time

The strength and power in man could never push the wailing winds That turn to bring the rivers and oceans enclosed on thickness of muddy slides Capturing of the dry lands endlessly unto the watery course with frantic lives And within the changing world there is change in the breathing man On the unknown journey of imaginations Inspirational Souls on the Major Road • 129 Would nature cover the body of earth with the humming of roaring waters everywhere Sweeping man breathlessly to its sinking depth under the blasts uprooted trees Lasting through the darkened nights with the wee numbered of stars Scattered under the smoky clouds of rains To pour all day and night only to stop on the calm so sensuously with solemn look On the reverse in silence of a standstill world after devouring the many souls Below the belly of the earth to unknown depth of seas with speechless tongues All beneath the grumbling grounds Free at last through the dawn unto dark where many hours have past Leaving the smells of rot and the piles of flesh departing the bones And wandering men with the good of heart facing the washing of the sinful world It was the depth of thinking that travels the universe with the alertness That rest in my soul of the forth coming of this mysterious world Where the secret of nature’s earth untold.

The Doom of Experience

The danger on this earth is untold for the airy growth of sins That man process from the love of his aching heart Seeing the darkness of this world and no where to turn And the shining down of the sun is gone and gone for good Inspirational Souls on the Major Road • 61 For what left behind is the dark and smoky clouds Looking down and timing its fall to rainy days To over flow the ditches and drains that will push the wailing winds To change forces of the watery bed With the rooted minerals and all the greenery growth that breaks earth Springs out to die and hunger would replace the soul of man Of what he had taken for granted in this place to understand The divine scientific life of man and to feel the inspiration of thee With the silence of the mightiest Moving powers to the depth of earthly grounds within harmony of man Where he will only learn from his own experience through time The very meaning of his existence. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
