Like You In The Mirror!

Poem By Eric Cockrell

let me be...
the bridge, the cup,
the lifeboat, the beacon.
the open hand offered,
the shovel, the saw.
the house left open,
the fire built to share.
the cool rag on the forehead,
the silence that heals.
the field waiting to turn,
the plow, and the mule.
the coat, the hat,
the blanket and the bed.
the ear with a face,
the face with a heart.
the heart that looks
like you in the mirror!

a child is dying.
for every barrel of oil that
you drill and spill,

it took ashes...
for me to draw
a picture of your living
in black and white...

from a tiny acorn,
the oak tree grows.
what a man cant find,
a child will know.

A Badge

he wears her like
the badge of honorable
abuse....

I Quit

i quit trying to save the world...
and just offered my hand,
and walked beside it.
i quit trying to find the truth,

A Buddha's Eternal Moment

one lone rose
opened by the sun,
the faint memory of rain,
and the dark damp earth.
