Man in a Golden Helmet-Rembrandt

Man in a Golden Helmet – Rembrandt van Rijn


Wanderlust had led me far

Following that fated star

Leading to the gates of war

That Satan’s own had left ajar


And now I see on looking back

With wearied eyes and burdened back

A tired old man with nothing left

With mourning soul and heart bereft


How can this world not be ready for the

Quiet happiness and calm of peace?

Into the Air   7 comments


Feelings racing up on high

Dancing lightly ‘cross the sky

Laughing while our spirits fly

Never asking who or why.


Splashing sprightly through a stream

Chasing a vision of rainbows

Following an illusive dream

Down the path that life goes


Grinning, smiling, lightly singing

Everything here is passing fair

Music sounds and bells are ringing

Cares and worries go….,  up into the air.
