Hymn 909

The Immortal World

 

 Soap bubbles caught by the wind and flung

High up towards the smiling sun

In rainbow colours gaily dressed

Once loved, twice treasured and three times blessed

However short their blessed flight

Reflect life’s radiance and light

So we each float careless and free

From evolution’s destiny

And glitter and flash and shine so bright

With creation’s joy, creator’s light

And with momentous strength create

The immortal world in perfect state

 

There is no time, this time is all

Where civilisations rise and fall

And memories of our fleeting lives

Still shine like stars in timeless skies

And lives the folk of past times lived

Forever remain a timeless gift

There is no time tho’ time seems king

Of matter, space and everything

Yet all these things serve but to show

The beauty of the here and now

 

Perception’s moment, the phoenix “I”

Is ever reborn and does not die

But lays its mark on timeless slate

Where time has neither heft nor weight

And happy times, joy’s every spark

Carve words of light upon the dark

And when our world grows pale and old

And when the stars grow dim and cold

 

 

 

Our lives of joy will be retold

As time inverts and stars reform

Our words of love will be reborn

 

Soap bubbles caught by the wind and flung

High up towards the smiling sun

In rainbow colours gaily dressed

Once loved, twice treasured and three times blessed

However short their blessed flight

Reflect life’s radiance and light

So we each float careless and free

From evolution’s destiny

And glitter and flash and shine so bright

With creation’s joy, creator’s light

And with momentous strength create

The immortal world in perfect state

Eskimo

May 18, 2014

I come to you like an Eskimo

On the last remaining ice floe

when the icecaps have gone

.

I come to you like an astronaut

Who has lost contact with his ship

And floats towards the sun

.

Displaced and disembodied

Alight with hope

My mother

October 17, 2013

 

My mother was beautiful and stupid and clever

Poetic and selfish, misguided, perceptive

Useless with people, terrible with men

Sentimental, not loving

Adored, not loved

Contradictory, direct

Fallible, impetuous

Reluctantly, I suppose, only human

Spirit me away

Spirit me away

 

I whisper as I watch you play

 

I know you see a better world

 

Spirit me away

 

 


A note about “How To Be Happy – The Maxus Irie Book Of Happiness”

August 18, 2013

 

Happiness should be fun – and I thought of this book, and the whole concept of Maxus Irie, as a way of emphasising the fun aspects of religions and cults both for those who are religious and also for those, like myself, who are not. Everyone should be able to enjoy prayers, rituals, hymns, psalms and myths – so why not democratise our natural instinct to rejoice?

Sing and you almost immediately feel happier. Pray, and you immediately have a sense of connection with the world into which you are sending your words. Rituals imprint mood patterns more firmly on your mind, while at the same time affirming your principles and beliefs within the material world. These are marvellous ways of expression and they deserve to be shared.

If you say these words:

“The power and the light

And the warmth

Of the sun

They are in me

They are in me

And they fill me with joy”

then you will almost certainly feel a little bit happier – and if you are unhappy they at least suggest and affirm the possibility of a happiness to come.

So, as you open the pages of How To Be Happy, I hope you will join me on a journey that I am just starting out upon: to happiness, contentment and love.

Father

November 29, 2012

 

Do I do anything of which I would not wish

 

My father to approve?

 

The way I walk or where I walk or when?

 

The words I write the words I say or think?
