Rose Garden

The seasons, here you watch them come and go, like lovers that change every time the spark of unnamed delight, turns and drifts over to another soul   Just as you've smelt the roses, their summer blooms start fading; leaving but a thorny note of regret, as petals fall, hope and belief dissolving   Now...

Lessons

Those sentient stones, guarding the gates to another world Solemn sentries, reminding of a dark, unstable past   I look to them in wonder of what it is they've lived through And in their mighty story they can offer us a clue   From those fading, misty years when the earth coughed raging fire And...

Revelation

So now you know the truth my dear, I've revealed all to thee; The battle fought behind closed doors - Brooding gloom of the past Now liberation sings sweetly, That there's no more to hide; And blessed is my twitching heart - Calmed now you're there inside   Image: Girl with a Pearl Earring, Johannes...
