George Krokos Poems
Universal Freedom Is......
Freedom from hunger and freedom from pain freedom from loss and so freedom from gain. Freedom to give and freedom to share freedom from want and that of despair.
Supply And Demand
There seems to be a universal law of supply and demand and all that’s truly had is in accordance with its command. Working in conjunction with the law of cause and effect it starts to really make some sense to all those who reflect.
Sunset On The Beach
The sun was setting with all its power and glory on the horizon behind the sea as I stood there on the sand which lay along the water's edge.
Quatrain #263 - Love is.....
With a warm and loving feeling deep in my heart I welcome you this moment right from the start. We haven't seen each other for such a long time I do hope you will appreciate hearing this rhyme.
A Creature Of Habit
You’ve become a creature of habit since coming into the world O man and so will evidently try to justify this condition as much as you can! There are so many things that you ignorantly or needlessly do now which prove to be of little or no benefit to you while here anyhow.
One Light: Three Primary Colors
Red is the colour of blood that flows in the body of all creatures given birth Green is the colour of grass that like a carpet covers a lot of the soil of earth Blue is the colour of sky that surrounds this world and is of an infinite girth All three colours come from a Single Source having an Immeasurable worth.
Early Prose: About Nature - A Waterfall
The Sinking Ship
The ship is sinking and we all have to get out I wonder if there are enough life boats about, that are able to take us safely to the distant shore where we may live happily for a while once more.
I look at you from every practical angle and the more I look at you the more I know. We speak to each other, share each other's feelings, live each other's fear; hate from another.
Ode To The Sun
O glorious dear sun, sovereign of the day, in the sky above you’re one whose radiance resembles a little of God’s love; by nurturing all creatures in the world with your unique rays and setting such a high standard that homage everyone pays.
Bitter conflict! The earth is crying blood Life is dying! People are turning against each other
It was from the sands of a windswept beach I picked up pebbles that were easy to reach. They had attracted my attention while walking by their coloured well formed shape caught the eye.
Any News of The Beloved?
What news have you brought me of the beloved? The anxiety of my heart is so very great in there. I no longer at all can keep my feelings covered and the stirrings of my heart are about to flare.

Universal Freedom Is......
Freedom from hunger and freedom from pain
freedom from loss and so freedom from gain.
Freedom to give and freedom to share
freedom from want and that of despair.
Freedom to think and freedom to know
freedom to achieve and freedom to grow.
Freedom from bondage and freedom of liberation
freedom from ignorance and any unknown situation.
Freedom to come and freedom to leave
freedom to stay and freedom to conceive.
Freedom from struggle and freedom of ease
freedom to enjoy and the capacity to please.
Freedom from failure and freedom of ...
