Soul Food

I’ve been thinking about nourishment recently and what I think it is; and what I think we get it from.  These are my internal deliberations. It keeps us ticking, it keeps the joints of our bodies clicking, as we travel our on our road.  Nourishment though starts with the organ grinder not the, our self […]

Nature’s Music

The wind on my windows The pattering of the rain Nature’s chorus Is always a beautiful refrain From the crashing of waves To the tweeting of birds Nature’s sweet symphony Is in the tranquil cave And the noisy herd Beauty in sound It’s messages are so simple But also So profound David James Horn ©

Me My Valentine

It’s that day again That one which really challenges My zen I remember when I’d lament Received cards in the negative ten But since then I’ve realised This year my valentine Is me Self love is ours always Life sustaining like water More precious than all life’s riches To share love is nice But to […]

I thank those that have gone before Those who sketched the path Those who in body Are here no more Gratefully I stand on your shoulders I observe your footprints Absorb your lessons Feeling an infinite blessing You lit the fires Showed the way Enabled the fulfilment Of soul desires Who could fail To be […]

Existential Musings #1: Tension

It’s Ok To Be Cold

A letter to my younger self You were one tough cookie Unassailably happy With skin thicker than a wookie Except I know thats not true You took the shit With determination and grit But still I feel what it did to you No one ever knew You gave people only good news And shorts all […]

The Swan

The swan on the lake Looked up with heart ache The other birds flew And regardless of his wings The water was all he knew Could he fly? Was the air safe? What if he were to die? Heavy were his fears Many were his tears But the lake wasn’t enough Seasons change And life […]
