EMOTIVE THOUGHTS

Article text
MAN'S NEEDS

Man cannot live alone
His needs are deep and wide
Unless he wants desolation
Feelings must release inside
He must not trap emotions
For his macho side
Or he will feel loneliness
Across the great divide

Phil Sanders
















THE AURA OF MUSIC

Music fills my soul
The notes a waterfall
Of tingling sweet sensation
Inside so much enthralled
The sound so purifying
Surround my mind so deep
Filled with relaxation
I drift to gentle sleep

Phil Sanders










LUMINAIRE


The night sky sparkles
With the stars so bright
As I gaze around in wonder
At the shiny lights so bright
What unseen events
Happened in the past
Leaving us to stare
Awaiting times to last
Are there people out there?….
Watching us as well
Waiting for the moment
For us all to tell
Will it be our future?
Will it be the time?
Will it be succinct?
Will it be sublime?

RETREAT OF INNOCENCE


A baby cries ………
A new life begins
The tears and laughter
Mingle without sins
So when the life grows
And man affects the soul
Why do some become
Less than the perfect whole
How can some take up the gun
Harming nature’s work
Never taking kindness
Just providing hurt
If we could solve this problem
Making men sincere
We could all enjoy …
Our time on this earth here………

TRAIN JOURNEY

The passing world flits by my mind
I look at those who seek and find
The future of their life in time
The way that others seem sublime

Chattering and laughing eyes
Some are sad … some show surprise
The mixture of our world is there
Behind the laughter and the cares

Fleeting moments … glimpses pass
Conversations … deep or crass?
Each within a capsule neat
Will their lives become complete?

Rocking now … the train moves on
Towards the future and the sun
Each of us a life to find
Wherever is our end of line ….

BABY'S EYES

A baby’s eyes regard the world
New experiences sense and swirl
Time to come … unknown as yet
Future feelings still to get

The innocence upon the face
Still with God’s sweet, gentle grace
Before the world corrupts and turns
A life untouched by Devil’s burns ….

Jane Morris?(A LADY WITH SIMILAR FEATURES)

Rosetti shows within her face
Gentle beauty … simple grace
His brush would surely her record
With sweeping strokes … complete accord

YOUTH AND BEAUTY

Youth and beauty change in time
Showing character so fine
Giving life a chance to show
All its facets … high and low

Learning from the pastures green
Watching moments … bad … supreme
Taking all within one’s stride
Sometimes hobbled … sometimes glide

Living with yourself as one
Looking for each morning’s sun
Giving space to others … free
Try to understand and see

Phil Sanders



FATE

Fate plays upon the distant shore
Using ploys from days of yore
Creeping up upon the wind
Showering pleasure … showing sins

Unsuspecting minds at peace
Suddenly … the Golden Fleece
Grasped within the sands of time
Some find joy … some turn to crime

Dancing … leaping … flowing … still
Sometimes provides the bitter pill
An angel’s face with Devil’s glow
Amongst the temples deepest flow
