Juniperus Ashei – The devil’s tree

Does the devil have a tree?
If so, I could tell you what it would be
A Mountain Cedar
Deliverer of allergy fever

Pollen clouds rise in the south
Delivered on warm winds straight into your mouth
On what should be a glorious warm winter day
You simply feel like hell is having its way

Pressured eyeballs try to escape your brain
Fire blazes in your throat as you pray for rain
Breathing, such a challenge as to feel optional
Juniperus Ashei are you really from Dante’s stable?

The Shire of York

The depth of your green makes my heart yearn for home
My soul cherishes the moments we share
Rolling hills house untold beauty
The glories of creation never more spectacular

Sheep quietly discuss the day
While a beck winds its way
Towards a thunderous waterfall
Which feeds a magnificent oasis of ecology

Coal fire smoke hangs on the crisp air
As frost crunches underfoot
The traveler enters an ancient stone building
Welcomed by strange voices and perfect ale

Such diversity, such beauty
What comfort and peace
My mind takes me there
As I plan a visit, home to Yorkshire

Light Of The World

Light of the world

Burn inside my soul

Kindle deeper love

Draw me closer still

 

May my consciousness

Be overloaded by Your presence

May the thought of You, direct all that I do

Let me be consumed by the fire of Your love

 

Holy Jesus, may your glorious name

Be reflected evermore in who I am

Take me, mold me, grow me

I am yours & You are the Light of the world

Freedom?

You use religion as an excuse

A crutch

To pedal your hate

Your hate is from no god

Hate is pure evil

From the depths of darkness

Your pain, whatever internal conflict that troubles you

Is no reason to give pain to others.

I pray that you would find light

I pray that you would know peace, true peace

Hate will only fuel your darkness

Light will quench your darkness

Light will set you free

From the prison of ignorance

I believe in freedom of speech

Freedom of religion

Freedom of choice

Obviously with every choice you have to be willing to live with the consequences

Freedom is often misunderstood

Freedom is not the right to do anything

It is the right to make your choices

Freedom is accepting the responsibility of choice

If you consciously choose to oppress others

To cause pain, grief, discomfort or death

You are not living in freedom

You are opposing the very thing that freedom is

Peace, love & harmony my friends

May the light find you, may your days be filled with joy

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 3,900 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people.
