Spirit Guide

Along the roads and paths of North Ontario
I will guide you through the rain and ice and snow
If you're lost then I will show the way to go
I am no-one and I'm everywhere, don't you know!

Just One Click

It seems the clouds move a little quicker with each day,
So it's nice to stop a bit and breathe the air along the way.
Sometimes I feel I'm on a train gliding through the countryside.
Yet I'm standing still and it's the world that's zipping by.
I hold my breath and press my camera to my face.
Just one click and hope I can freeze this time and place.
I exhale and fight to remember exactly where and when,
Then something yanks me and I'm on the move again.

Another World

Beneath the surface lies another world,
A world that is so different than our own.
There, they don't know much about our way of life,
And we know so little about their home.

Oh, we think that we're so smart.
Yeah, we know all the mysteries of the universe.
But there are more secrets in the smallest blade of grass
Than the knowledge that our reason can traverse.

And that's our blessing and our curse.

Wave of Gold

It was just a calm and peaceful day
On the prairie flat and vast,
But upon the horizon, a tidal wave
Left everyone aghast!

"It must be 15 meters high!"
Said a farmer to his child.
Though frightened, she would not cry,
As her world turned tame to wild.

At first it seemed the seas had come
From somewhere dark and cold.
But as it approached, we all fell dumb,
For the wave was made of gold!

We wondered how we would survive,
For a molten metal's hot.
As we noticed that we were still alive,
We discovered that it was not.

It wasn't long at all before
The children began to swim.
And adults found buckets and plenty more
To capture their new riches in.

But as quick as it came, it was gone,
And everything was as it had been.
Alas, the buckets of gold had leaked into the lawn,
But it was the most wonderful thing they had seen.

Flight Fantastic

Off I go on a flight fantastic!
Spin the prop, tighten that elastic!
Let it go and watch me soar!
Don't need no wheels anymore!

Don't judge me, don't be sarcastic!
I know real planes don't have elastic!
But don't you remember being a kid?
And wouldn't it be funny if they did?

Flat

If you believe the Earth is flat,
Then I suppose it's possible that
Every scientist, explorer, astronaut,
Engineer, cartographer, and cosmonaut
Conspired with all world governments
To hide the truth and its consequence,
Telling lies across the lands
For motives no one understands.
Hundreds of years, we've been betrayed,
While using discoveries those people made,
Showing math that proves their theories,
With rigorous review and answered queries.
Because this math was out of reach,
You took a ruler to the beach
And proclaimed, somehow enwizened,
Your straightedge matched the far horizon.
Instead of getting educated
On subjects that in school you hated,
You abandoned all sense of reason
That should be tantamount to treason.
I don't know, so call me crazy,
But being stupid and/or lazy
Is not a substitute for learning
And is equivalent to book-burning.

Back to Nature

"Going back to nature"
Presupposes, I suppose,
That I used to always live there;
And as all who know me knows,
I've always lived in cities,
Or at least in smallish towns,
And I've never been a camper,
As crazy as that sounds.
But I've always loved the mountains,
Or a rugged coastal drive,
So I guess I'll always head there,
To remind me I'm alive.

One Leaf

One leaf on a tree,
That's all it is.
One dream of what he could be:
Is it really his?

One life on a twig
Of a twisting vine.
So small in a world so big:
Is it smaller than mine?

One voice alone
In an enormous crowd.
Can anyone hear my tone
If I sing it out loud?

One planet in space:
Will we heed the call?
One family, one race:
Does it matter at all?

The Wrath of Grapes

Raspberry wine
Is all very fine
When life's a peach
Lying on the beach.
But there's no escapes
From the wrath of grapes
When you reach the hour
Your berries turn sour!

Perfect Peace

We will never find perfect peace,
For that is not how we grow.
To achieve something greater,
Sooner or later,
We must all reap what we sow.
