Strange Collusion

That which is wicked

Dark and suffocating

Exists alongside

Love and all

that is good


Can coexist

In strange collusion with anguish


Happiness and suffering

Can each engulf our lives

or be a fleeting sensation


Ecstasy is elusive

But it hits like a crashing wave

A power that overwhelms


Earth spins with verve

Vitality, rebirth, compassion, loyalty, devotion

These forces persist eternally


Don’t give up faith

In seeking an ideal

Blessings abound
