Deeds not Words

God made the illusion look real
and the real an illusion
He concealed the sea
and made the foam visible
the wind invisible
and the dust manifest
you see the dust whirling
but how can the dust rise by itself?
you see the foam, but not the ocean
invoke Him with deeds, not words;
for deeds are real
and will save you in the infinite-life

Very Early on Sunshine Beach

Let's take the steps
down to Sunshine Beach

before the day has really begun
before breakfast
before the beach lovers arrive
before the heat builds
before the usual routine begins
while we are new and fresh
the day is young
and life begins again
Let's stroll in the relative cool
of 24C at 5.30am

a dawn Icarus
rises high 

across the path of sunbeams

a loyal pup

awaits his swimming owners

the clouds cluster and swell
as they experiment with shape
using the blue of blue as their canvas
and the wet sand 
as their mirror

and the sea rolls glass green
Oh happy day...
