WHEN

When majestic mountains crumble to dust and proud stars sleep…

When our forever turbulent earth’s core cools down down deep,

and lonely sad sunflowers bend away from low light and weep…

 

When tall violent blue sea waves stall at highest crest…

When old undefeated champion hearts beat down down to rest,

and dawn summer suns rise late without zest – in the west…

 

When passion rose turns from red to black in kind hand…

When timeless laws of motion in the universe no longer stand,

and no small graces shine on this land…

 

When the world is confused and you feel used…

When our sacred spirits lay abused and refused,

I will still love you…

Rachmaninoff's Cello Sonata Op. 19-3

With the world spiraling into ever more discord, confusion, and illogical chaos, it's emotionally calming to step away from the panorama and remember all that is good about the natures of man.

Who can argue with the beauty of music. The great works such as Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata", Albinoni's "Adagio in G Minor", and Rachmaninoff's Cello Sonata Op. 19-3, all light your soul on fire. They can only bring out the good in man. They cause you to reflect on love and the greater need for it in our world.

Masterpieces of literature by Shakespeare,Tolstoy,and Hemingway open your mind on all there is and all that could be. Read Pasternak's "Dr.Zhivago" and appreciate the essence of love and how without it, we die.

Go into an operating room and see the struggle for life and its prolongation. The magic of healing is incomparable and truly exposes the goodness of man.

Watch a child explore the mysteries of a garden. See him chase butterflies and pick flowers. There is the essence of love, in living color.

Or observe two lovers in a park. Watch them express young love. The aura of their dreams surround them in a protective seal. What more can you ask for?

When feeling low, listen to Rachmaninoff's Cello Sonata Op. 19-3 from start to finish. Its ethereal notes at the end confirm for you that "Love does conquer all", and that there is hope for the world.

SunKissed 

In school study room across the way,

by blue picture window and sunlit bay,

sat a girl of special fantasy and golden dreams,

with dark hair and eyes, and face most supremes…

 

I gazed in open wonder at magic form,

as she read a book in bright morning light.

Lost in sunbeams and beauty silent storm,

my mind entranced in sun-kissed flight…

 

Glancing slow at me, she caught my stare.

Smiled and winked, and laid me bare.

I walked over and pulled a chair,

and the girl accepted bold and clear dare…

 

Admitting with teen spirit, equal interest and delight,

she pulled me closer without a fight.

Magnificent splendor of youthful energy,

the source of all the world’s love poetry…
