you can have it all said the man in the hat
but if your going to play you will have to pay
even if you run the opposit way
when the man at the gate calls your number
you will have to pay and pay all the way
everybodys always trying to be somebody else
the grass is always greener so they say
but green is…
STARRY, STARRY NIGHT Lyrics by Don McClean
Painting by Vincent Van Gogh
Starry, starry night.
Paint your palette blue and grey,
Look out on a summer's day,
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul.
Shadows on the hills,
Sketch the trees and the daffodils,
Catch the breeze and the winter chills,
In colors on the snowy linen land.
Now I understand what you tried to say to…

The Book of Dead Names Sonnet Trilogy by Sara Russell, 29/4/07
Rage of angels
Days gone by
The Chosen one, with eyes of searing flames
Is opening the book of Living Names....
The turning pages tell of lives gone by,
Furled by the one whose eyes are blinding flames;
Hot ashes flutter to the blood-red sky,
Like burning souls…
cicles in time
time,time into circles
circles,circles in time
time moving in constant circles
circles within circles
oceans of time
circling in an ocean of constant thought
expanding minds throughout the universe
one thought changing the history of time
one thought changing the cycle of time
one thought changing the futer circle…Continue

Despite the trials of this earthly world
and the continued foolishness of men,
God wants His Principles completely unfurled –
For He loves His Children, while hating sin.
His anger is not turned away
and yet His Hand is outstretched still.
Our Salvation awaits its appointed day
with the meshing of our spirits to His Will.
As long as we continue to breathe,
there’s Hope for us to loving cleave;
He’s promised that His Spirit…
Out from the darkness,
having a lifestyle that’s plain to see,
I’m standing fully in the Light
of God’s transparency.
I have no hidden agendas,
nor malicious motives;
my heavenly light is set upon a hill,
shining as a diminutive votive.
I’m a human jar of clay,
desiring true spiritual brokenness;
for God’s vessels draw men to Him,
via the sparkling of His Holiness.
For the nakedness of Life
is my personal choice;
