Begotten Scion

Updated on August 28, 2013

Woman

Born of Earth

Clothed in silken leaves

And velvety petals

Mother Nature

Embraces the

Man

Born of Space

Adorned in white robe

Forever bearing

The hour glass

Father Time

A kiss of ages

A love in tempest

Begetting scion

Spawning their offspring

Breath from Mother

Mortality from Father

He dons the scythe

Clad in black robe

Hood pulled over

Grinning skull

What shall we call him

Father times son

Mother Nature’s child

There is only one name fitting

This Grim Reaper…

…Death!

      Well Sir Wayne it's truly the great ones who can develop, cultivate and express their own language - and that truly makes you then - one of the great ones here in Hubland - and the fact that you can explore many different moods, genres and poetic styles makes you extremely versatile as well. You are in a class of your very own.

      Van the Man is still playing - it's a great album from 2002 called Down the Road

      and finally, the full moon has arrived on its belly laying on the lake in the horizon and the color is orange

      Life begets Death, and so it was. Beautifully done, expressive, and so true.
