The Dungeon

trees image

A small kid in the dungeon,

Stuck in pitch dark and silence,

She thinks she is blind,

Suddenly after days of darkness,

A ray of light hits her eyes,

A sound of hope, a touch of love.

Makes her happy,

A voice calls her,

She runs towards the door,

And pushes it wide open,

To her surprise it just needed a slight push,

A whole new world of happiness opened.

Behind her a world of darkness, and ahead her a world full of brightness,

At the threshold life looked so beautiful.

Dust to Dust, Ashes to Ashes

They come up to you, clapping, cheering, waltzing their ways
Into room full of bright light, dinner, wine and coquetry.
Life, as you see, it is for the living
Breathing common, humdrum with the cheer
Of a frog leaping, while they see death is for the dead.
The symphony of all their voices, their breath against each other
And lousy fun reverberate in the evening air
Like the music of love, while death
Through the swaying trees, is heard weeping on the breeze.
From a stealthy, safe corner, I open up the door
And pick up its note unsaid.
Death, the identical twin of this roaring, bustling life.

The evening room is squirming with exhaust fumes and laughter
No one knows where this note came from.
My sensation of travel as I sing the note
Is all controlled and guided.
I can see the river blue eyes of your graveyard
Smell the flesh burning
As its embers flash back in time.
I can see the light, bright white and pure
Exit from the total darkness and surrender,
Entering the green pastures of eternity.

I falter in this room full of the living,
My muffled voice resists reaching out,
Tethers and stops amidst the mad cacophony.
Halfway out the door I found this poem
Ignite us as one.

While the bud butterflies melt their wings
Within the light red poppy chain,
The pink-gray clouded, sad sunset rings.
In this lost sky, the sun’s light vein
Is almost thrown in a bloody rain.
The leaving sun abandons the sky
For the moon, and in the cricket crawl
The leaves of the oaks whisper ‘good bye’,
While the coming night has a dark shawl.
She looks at the stars with a black eye.
The sun and the stars find synergy,
In the regolith on the moon,
But with helium fusing energy,
This moon looks like a big balloon,
Or like a fragile, silky cocoon.
And like those thoughts enveloped in words,
Or like angels carrying their pure love,
Are the Feathers of the Holy Birds
In that rain dropping the divine globes
On the strong souls needing love rewards.
Any epistemological sphere
Is pouring up to the Holy Book,
Or is falling down to disappear.
The reverse arch gets a killer look.
Tries to provide fragrance of fear.

The fluid, wicked waves draining in sight
On Earth to meet at infinity
Are like the dark rays in the pure light.
Light rays are arches of Trinity,
While dressed in wind seems to be the night.

Stars are candles and night lights them all,
The colors withdraw in the last light.
In the black darkness, they look so small.
The dream seeds germinate for a fight,
Becoming real while breaking their wall.

Song to Venus Passing By!

High Five! Venus Passing By!

And I decide to thrive
End to the strife inside
I live my life with pride
I love to be alive!
End to the fight inside
Goddess love, imbibe!

Chorus

The love within invites
Sis-star to shine so bright
Soul-ar love and light
There is no end in sight
High Five! Venus passing by!

I give myself full right
To end this lifeless lie
Let me feel bright inside
No more dark abides
The jewel up in the sky
Sends sister love, I fly!

Chorus

The love within invites
Sis-star to shine so bright
My life is love and light
There is no end in sight
High Five! Venus passing by!

Written as a song by Johanne Gallagher in honor of Venus passing the Sun on June 6th 2012.
