MAN… a beast of burden.
Man is a beast of burden,
And I think that most agree,
We`d all be far far better off
Still living in a tree.
Peek outside your window,
There`s a concrete jungle there,
A man made ghastly blunder
And it comes from, `you know where’.
Man has erred in...

I feel for the hands that try to reach.
Beyond the blazing fire that is fear.
Pass the frozen mountains that stand guard.
Throe the wall that can not be moved.
I watch them as they try and fail.
Fighting her every step of the way.
I shake my head to their weakness,

A wave in your hair,
A wave out at sea,
A wave of a branch
Of a stately old tree.
A wave of good-bye,
A wave between friends
A wave of contention
No beginnings… no ends.
A wave of sheer terror
A wave of delight,
A wave of the palm trees
In the wind late at night...
How do you measure Love's intensity
can it consume you in its full immensity
is it its volume or its density
How can you measure Love's intensity ?
How can you fathom Love's full passion
does Love go in and out of fashion
can there be Love without compassion
How can you measure...
EP FRIENDSHIP IS:
Transient but never fickle
Here today - who knows about tomorrow
Independent of space & time
Unconcerned of age or status
More bold than in real life
More perplexing than in real life
(Sometimes) More rewarding than real life
As vibrant as one's imagination
Wherever I am or I go
I sense something of God's power
The grandeur of every mountain
The vastness of every ocean
Wonder of interstellar space
All proclaim the glory of God
In the clutter of our cities
Are reflections of God's splendour
Voice of God can always be heard
THOU art the everlasting word
The Father's only Son
GOD manifestly seen and heard
and Heaven's beloved one ............
In thee most perfectly expressed
The Father's glories shine
of the full Deity possessed
eternally Divine ...........
True image of the infinite

OPALS are very beautiful gemstones
and can exhibit every colour of the rainbow !
They are hydrated SILICA (SiO2) and perfect
specimens (by weight) more valuable than diamonds.
Most OPALS are mined in Australia

A Poem for World Peace
written by Janife
05th October 2012
Why do they have weapons of mass destruction
instead of tools of mass construction?
There’s so much hatred in the world
This really is absolute absurd
Let’s fill our hearts and minds with love...
I LOVE YOU with my eyes because
you are beautiful in every respect.
I LOVE YOU with my mind because
you are wise and intelligent.
I LOVE YOU with my heart because
you are so so lovable !
I LOVE YOU with my body because
you are so so sensual.
I LOVE YOU with my lips...
The Date of Birth and Date of Death
record of whom in tomb reclines
