Poetry Blogs (2019, serenity)
I have found
the blue sea of balance and tranquility.
It rests inside of me.
I float through its silver mists of hope
and flip, flop my feet in its depths.
Bubbles of content come to the surface and pop!
I have found myself clothed in equilibrium
and the colours suit me well.
Faith and love give me buoyancy and
I am held and nourished by your belief in me.

What a welcome relief
your tender words are
to my weathered soul.
I get so busy in life
tending to other’s needs

But when I come to the
oasis of serenity and
see a good heart reflected,
my faith in love is restored.

For you may stay with me beneath a shallow moon tonight.
Wrapping your arms in mine until yesterday’s shadow gone,

beyond our close shadow of death
my poet mind
I need direction
Or some beads to tell
to take refuge from my life:
A candle flame
Only the candle
A journey into quietude

As the nineteenth autumn has come upon me,
It’s a whole new world I see.
Treacherous creatures, so often, hush and hide,
And it seemeth to me, a change in tide.
The poetry of soothing sensation has gone,
The glimmering golden glow of the sun is now none.
Some say,’ The Head is battling with the Heart’.
Well ! All Logic has been torn apart.
As I gaze into the vast emptiness
