Dawn chorus cries

Dawn chorus cries,
'Wake up!'
a new day beckons
full of surprise
of untold mysteries
yet to unfold
the light breaks through
a vision to behold
of love and beauty
truth and joy
moment by moment
time unwinds.

I hear the sound of footsteps


I hear the sound of footsteps
echo far and near
as people search in anguish
lives lived out in fear.

Round and round in circles
over hill and dale
they wander through the countryside
and through the market square.

Aimlessly they travel
shoes worn out by tread
weighed down by their own burdens
some completely off their head.

Minds restless from life's worries
bodies tired out from pain
they look like they're contented
but heads bow down in shame.
