The Land Of Shadows In The Shadow Universe


a vast region
beyond the Celestial Universe
where no one
has any recollection
of visiting
the Land of Shadows
is impenetrable
from the Celestial Universe
its closest land,
the Land of Hades

a Land of fire and ice
of terrible hardship
and pain for souls
condemned for eternity

a place where
no man rules
where only evil
resides

there is no escape
but,
there is a doorway
to the Shadow Universe

the doorway accessible
only when
the Ruler of Hades
wants to cause fear
in the souls of man

part of his
grand scheme
to gather
more souls
from earth

while open,
inhabitants of the
Land of Shadows
enter into the
the Celestial Universe
to freely roam the Earth
at night
to haunt dreams
but
never allowed to take life

occasionally,
some are allowed
to become visible
to men

Shadows cannot harm
but
they are the demons
who implant
Vampires,
Werewolves,
Zombies,
and other creatures
that introduce
great fear
in the mind of
men who
are willing to
accept such things
as superstition

 

The Earth And The Celtic Moon


The Earth
the outermost
region pf the
Crystal Universe
so far away
it is the only area
with its own Sun
surrounded by
planets of various sizes
and location from its
warm rays
the only region
where man exists
limited by his
ability to escape
into other lands.

Seldom, Fairies and those escaping
the Land of Spectre have
used their magic
to enter the Earth’s Realm
adding to the superstition
of Human’s

The Celtic Moon
Earth’s Moon, its only companion
so close, yet seldom attainable
with no human presence,
the Ancients there since the beginning
call this harsh world home
have no memory of origin
live just under the crust in
hundreds of trillions of nooks

without light or heat
live a dormant life
until
Photosynthetic Light-Absorbing Pigments
energized by capturing
suns nighttime rays
form an invisible reflective mirror
directed to the earth as moonlight
where on earth
bathed in eerie, fog filtered moonlight,
creatures inhabiting the old bog shuffle
silently for fear of detection.
Others, come alive,
orchestrate the beautiful sounds
defining the night.

Predators await the light to outline their next meal.
A couple, resting upon the hillside,
ignore the low lying fog and song of thousands,
enjoy the embrace of each,
and the subtle influence of the full moon
providing renewal to all.

The Ancient’s unknown to humans
continue their billion years duty
unabated.

Crystal Moonlight


hidden deep in the Celestial Garden
originating from
the Crystal Moon,
centered to gather lost loves
hoping for retribution

A place where heartbreak looms
sometimes forever
the love of light extinguished

for the fortunate few
an awakening of new hope
a gift few receive

the Crystal Moonlight
hears the “Songs of Sorrow
waits the verse “Song of Great Happening”
denoting she is not unforgiving
grants a reunion for those who seek lost love

it is a place of dreams
where love is gathered
to be returned
only when
loves glorious passion reunites
lost love

now, the Crystal Moonlight
shines in love
opens her arms
receives from the Celestial Garden
true loves desire
awakening lost love
she unites willing souls
granting hope for retribution
for loving parent’s
sons and daughters

hidden in the Crystal Moonlight
the Celestial Garden
release lost loves
from the Celtic Moon
journeying forward to
discover destiny

The Stupid Person


A stupid person
will never
listen
to an
intelligent person
because…
the stupid person
knows everything

What My Sacrifice Means To You


        I do not think about dying
I am young and defiant
I put my life at risk daily
          I do not think about dying
I believe in my mission
I trust those I serve
I do my duty diligently, without fail
          I do not think about dying
I accept great risk
I am an American fighting for Americans
I am one of the 1%
I protect the rights and lives of the 99%
who do not serve in the military
          I do not think about dying
My flag gives me strength
strength to endure another day
symbolization is my motivation
My flag is worn on my uniform
she is with me every day
          I do no think about dying
her beauty lies in her thirteen stripes,
representing thirteen original colonies
she displays colors of red and white on a field of blue
red for hardiness, and valor
the white signifies purity and innocence
the blue for  vigilance, perseverance and justice
with fifty white stars,
one for each state for unity
all qualities for which we stand
those that define us as a nation
as an individual
it is not just a flag
it is you
          I did not think of dying
I have lived out my days
I did my duty
I represented you with honor and distinction
I died for your right to accept or reject patriotism
to remove the you from American symbolism
and eventually from a nation
          I did not think of dying

I think about what my sacrifice means to you

 

Discovery


Columbus, Erickson, Cook
all explorers who discovered
but,
did they really discover
or did they simply conquer
the true discovers of the land
the people living there?

is the word Discover
an incorrect title
when the reason
of discovery
was plunder and conquer?

yes,
Columbus,
Erickson,
Cook,
and others alike
conquerors all,
discoverers…not!

Hatred


Hatred

Hatred is blind
causing light to recede
into darkness.

Hatred,
oblivious of the consequences
descends,
darkening the land
long before the sun sets.
