Ethereal Glimpses

Ethereal glimpses
blissful flashes
Capricious moments of purity
The times when we cross over

Rumination cast aside
Sentience heightened
Gravity’s shackles released
Dissonance dissolved into congruence

Enveloped in enchantment
Bathed in tranquility
Replete with grace
Serenity is sublime

Ordinary Man

I am a most ordinary person
never to be rich or great
but I do small things well
and if such an element exists
I gladly accept my fate

Not brilliant or wise, more a dreamer
a listener, thoughtful and kind
wounded by the pain of the world
always seeking answers
missing the secret signs

Wanting to leave a mark behind
but not a monument or legacy
just to show that I was indeed here
that I added to the positive
and life was bettered by me
