In Simple

Sail among the trees
Sail among the leaves of life

Free upon hallow grounds
Free upon soulful lands

Collected hear the insulted noises
Collected hear the lone known sounds

Tempted feel the lifted peace
Tempted feel the truthful pleasure

We live.

                                Adam C. Sharp

A Shadowed Recovered

Winds howl in my ear of what I've heard before
Oh my senses echo a once made experience
Of what time has shown to me;
To glow before me;

The ring of light
The bright inside I feel to see
I set my palms against a face that once did shine before me

Now once again the truth must show I feel
That once shinning dream again.

                                              Adam C. Sharp
