THRENODY

I dreamt I saw you among the dozen

Standing above the threshold of holy realms

Like a lost wanderer in foreign land

To seek divided thoughts to move

Held you a piece in thirty piece of silver

Of the price of the elders.

Poignant, though your heart blinked unknowingly

Between Scylla and Charybdis

And so you took council upon him.

Between now and then, and hither and thither

Upon which the master was sell down the river

By you whom I saw in my dream.

Now standing beyond the threshold of destruction

But do not shed white tears now

Do not shed them now as men do

Into our opening hearts.

Neither thorn of crowns into our hands

Nor blood happiness it seems

For we live as the days passed as whited sepulcher.

At this time of the year
Love is like an angry sea,
With waves coming from all the angles,
Making all relationship struggle,
Tearing relationships,
The same way waves tear ships.

The ocean is endlessness with a bottom that only God's feet can get to
The intensity of the waves can always tell us her mood

The waves of the ocean is an ancient dance
The people of the water understand its power

The waves of the ocean have seen the spirit of The Almighty
Only the voice of God can silence her tantrum

  A sailing tempest ship glides
     Through the tensed waves of the ocean
  And doubts my destination home.

The stormy sea, the fear and the lost
Of dear ones amidst troubles
We shall sail to the coast.
