FOCUS OF THE UNIVERSE

The universe is in focus
Right now and right here
There is no hocus pocus
No illusion of far and near

Every planet, every being
Every eye that’s anywhere
Everybody who is seeing
Aware that they are there

The focus of the universe
Is in your own mind’s eye
Alive for better or worse
We lose the focus and die

ELEPHANTS

The elephant calls out
Here I am! I matter!
When he goes balls out
In eloquent elephant chatter

A WALK IN THE PARK

Evil must show its face
In order for good to show
Objects linger in empty space
A world of wonder and woe

Desire for peace requires war
Death requires birth
Wealth depends upon the poor
Or so it goes on earth

Duality does rule this place
It can or cannot be denied
Love and hate, the human race
The humility and pride

As we live into the future
Some will die of some plague
It is the law of nature
The truth is clearly vague

Mystery of life cannot be solved
Mystery is only a word
Human thought is unresolved
Ordinary seems absurd

Evil lurks in the minds of men
Goodness and mercy too
It happened before, it will again
No matter what we do

Rain will fall if it is dry
The sun sheds light in the dark
Laugh and cry and wonder why
Just like a walk in the park
