LIFTING UP AND OVER

Days of dragging, are gone
The shedding of dead skins
Now lifting up and over
A new life begins
Left behind the hides
Falling to the earth
Grown are the wings
To fly into new birth
Over every ocean
Passing every sea
Topping every mountain
A new soul is free

IN DARKNESS THEY LIE

Amidst the dark of night
Harvest moon held high
Midnight hour moving in
Every evil is on standby
Lurking about in hiding
Watching as you pass on by
Holding their breath
In darkness they lie
Craving your essence
Yet, staying so sly
The stroke of twelve
Will soon apply
For, they are certain
That you will die
It’ll happen very fast
Quicker than a blink of an eye
The master does form
He justifies the underlie
They follow his orders
They can not deny
From the grave
They will fly
With your soul
They’ll satisfy

EACH STEP TAKEN

Sailing the waters
Exploring the lands
Creating new visions
Walking new sands

Countless sunsets
Unlimited skies
Each step taken
More the wise

Enlightenment
The enlightened possess understanding
So profound they can not be understood.
Because they cannot be understood
I can only describe their appearance:

Cautious as one crossing thin ice,
Undecided as one surrounded by danger,
Modest as one who is a guest,
Unbounded as melting ice,
Genuine as unshaped wood,
Broad as a valley,
Seamless as muddy water.

Who stills the water that the mud may settle,
Who seeks to stop that he may travel on,
Who desires less than may transpire,
Decays, but will not renew.

THE HIGH BRIDGE

There’s a railroad bridge
That’s haunted some say
Called: The High Bridge
Which crosses over the river way
A lantern can still be seen
As legend tells the tale
Of the tragic death
Of an inspector male
Who walked the bridge
And kept up the track
Across the river
There and back
As the story’s been told
One evening, long ago
In the middle of the bridge
He heard the train whistle blow
Without enough time
To make back it to either side
The inspector was hit
And wretchedly died
As his lantern fell
To the water below
Yet, as it sank down
It held its glow
Now it’s been said
If you walk these tracks at night
You can still see the amber glow
Of his lantern’s light

LAST STAR TO FALL

The night was bitter and cold
The sky was midnight blue
The meteor show was brilliant
As the shooting stars flew

Everyone was wishing
And every wish came true
And there was happiness
Over the world through and through

Yet there was a little girl
Who was so very small
And then the crowds parted
And she wished on the last star to fall

And there was the child’s Mother
As heaven opened up its door
And suddenly the woman began to sing
To hear her voice, was all the child wished for

Caribbean King © 1997 by Peggy Burress

Dancing
to a sassy island beat,
our bodies
fluidly swayed, twirled, dipped
to the rhythm of the sea.
The ebb and flow,
like the ocean's pulse,
rocked the core of my being.
Every movement
a warm sensual wave washing thru me.

Your skin
deep and silky smooth as the Caribbean night,
invited me to gaze long and content.

Your eyes,
dark windows to the depth of your soul,
beckoned me.
to seek the light within. The fire of your light,
like the stars piercing the deep,
showered me in a quiet electric storm.
Your aura,
reflective and as faraway
as the mountains that embraced me
with intriguing silence,
revealed
gentleness hidden among stony crags.

In you
i discovered the magic of Haiti.
In you
i discovered the mystery of Haiti.
In you
i discovered the mood of Haiti.
In Haiti
i discovered You.
