Transcendent Love

Dear Lord, please find me 

somebody to love.  

God replied, no, 

not just one love. 

I give you an ocean 

of eternal love 

found only in faith, 

poetry and music. 

From this special place, 

you will find love 

like you have never known,

from kindred spirits

around the world, 

transcending 

space and time, 

to give you a glimpse 

of the divine.

To That Special Someone

[ ] 1 + 1 = 2.


[ ] That shiny bright star equates to you.


[ ] That beautiful circle that wonderful loop.


[ ] That beautiful flower that blossom & grew.


[ ] Low to the ground you will never stoop.


[ ] But high to the sky you will always shoot.


[ ] Praise & glory to the righteous & truth.


[ ] May the Universe bless, shield, & guide you.

Christmas Wishes 2020

My wish this Christmas 

is faith replaces fear.

 

Loneliness gives way 

to cheer. 

 

Gratitude 

trumps despair. 

 

Children play

in open air.

 

Loss is not in vain.

 

Love spreads faster 

than a pandemic train.

 

Wishes multiple. 

 

Glimpses of paradise 

in every day life, 

remind us why 

we are alive.

the tattered old man on Christmas Eve

the tattered old man on Christmas Eve

 

snow was falling hard

as the old man struggled

through the deep drifts

on the country road

 

light shone from a

a farmhouse window

the old man smiled seeing the glow

 

it was a candle

the widowed mother had placed there

nightly since last Christmas Eve

 

a year ago

a man was found

frozen along this same road

Life Comes To This

Love is flowing down these blood-washed streets.
We are not done.
You put us out yet cannot put us out.
You have not won.

Hate hopes to overpower
Yet is weak
For Freedom's spirit cannot be contained
By anything.

We are not crushed nor wilted
Nor alone
We are not bowed nor beaten
Nor undone

Listen, for we still are brave to speak
Words will be waged
Look, for we still carry our ...

Night On A Rainbow

arches and keystone

without one they fall

life sustained by you

or I had nothing at all

 

skies at time of damp

arch of hues on show

feast with brittle rays

grist for my rainbow

 

refraction bends light

you twisted my heart

with love's pot of gold

vowed we'd not part

 

rainbow but an illusion

your promise the same

capricious the crescent

Best Friend

On my darkest days you have been my light

You have helped me to shine bright 

Always telling me that I belong

Always reminding me that I am enough

When my heart it blue

You are my glue

Nothing can describe the bond between me and you

You always see me through

Thank you for being my best friend, my sister, and simply you

Souls Remember

What is it about you that captivates me, 

leaves my heart with a gaping hole. 

 

You stay at bay, 

but your muse has much to say.

 

Your poetic love shines, 

creating a portal in time. 

 

We share a cosmic kiss,

before falling into life’s abyss.

 

Souls remember,

what the mind forgets.

Fireflies

He looks out of the open window 

at the end of the street,

cold and grey it seems like melancholy 

& there she stands afar

calm and still,

like the depths of the ocean waters;

 

as the time slips and the 

night sky drops on this world,

the moon shines bright as ever 

envied, as it looks at her glaring eyes,

radiating without the help of another star

No Doubt

What if we could have no doubt

What if we could all just look at this world through a child’s eyes

What if we could share our life’s without being judged

Let energies meet and collide 

Trust that people won’t hurt you 

Trust that people won't see you for the crazy human you are but instead for the new beautiful soul you’ve become

Kiss Me

Kiss me
  in the strawberry fields 
  of your mind.

Kiss me
  in rhythm 
  and rhyme.

Kiss me 
  until darkness 
  becomes sunshine.

Kiss me
  from pain
  to pleasure divine.

Kiss me
  through sands 
  of time.

Kiss me
  beyond death
  to life sublime.

Smeared

you wanted it so I went on the scent,

you said it made you feel like a queen,

Christmas at that Knightsbridge store,

most expensive emporium I'd ever seen

 

perfume is fine when embellished by love,

every atom of the odour a tender reminder 

of loving moments with your chosen one

with whom you couldn't wish to be kinder

 

it's when the passion cools and she waltzes o...

Uncertain

They cause us pain and yet we pretend
That it's love 
love that will win in the end
Are we so blind by the challenge 
Creating a false sense to feel valid
To remain blind is a choice we carry
Self worth cast aside and buried
So we can hold on just a little longer
The random good times
Make us feel stronger
You really loose your sense of self
In a set of cards you chose to delt
So if pa...

A Ghost Of Christmas Past

 

Granda's slouched 

In his fave comfy chair

A Christmas cracker party hat

Hides his four strands of hair

 

His wife always said:

'Get the buggers cut!'

But he wasn't quite ready

To be a total baldy nut! 

 

He wishes she was here now

Nagging at full pelt:

'If ye eat or drink one more thing,

yer gonna burst your belt!'

 

And Sophie's eyes sparkle

Narcissus V Phoenix

Narcissus creatures surround me.
Vultures, pecking at my serenity.
Testing my resolve.
Threatening to consume me.
Daring me to break free,
from a doomed mentality. 

Do I close my eyes to injustice
permeating our atmosphere,
like The Great Smog?

No.

I spread my Phoenix wings.
Rise above the toxic darkness.
Bring forth healing light.
Spread peace, kindness, love.

Never give up ...

Affirmation

I would like my naked toes to caress a field of poppies

to dance; a fine expression of freedom and happiness.

to look up at the clear blue skies

and listen to the sound of singing birds

in the midst of wonderful harmony.

For time to stand still, a chance to inhale

To truly take in life, and the precious moments it can hold.

You,

 

made me feel something

Something I've been trying to avoid for awhile now.

 

You,

 

made me feel safe.

Made me feel loved.

Made me feel like the only girl in the world

 

In your arms, no bad could happen.

In your arms, I was safe.

In your arms, I was loved. 

 

This unfamiliar feeling made me uneasy

Made me doubtful

Made me question everythi...

So Easily

her smile came so easily

before I could even blink,

she made my heart race

brought me to the brink

 

dress slipped off so easily

mysore silk of jade green,

the body of a svelte and

molten Myanmar queen

 

her love given so easily

from a brimming chalice,

no passion ever rivalled

what oozed from Alice

 

slipped away so easily

with barely a mumur,

Mistletoe In The Cellar

conceived in a cellar, of

a Tommy home on leave,

mother waving mistletoe,

shortly she would grieve

 

official dad inert upstairs

exempt due to his arches,

Tommy back to trenches

bullets or forced marches

 

killed in action in the mud

in my blood's a war hero,

official dad a profiteer,

moral fibre less than zero

 

the duality in mistletoe,

fertile of ...

Infinitum spes

 

The shadow strewn floor

revealed nothing but

the caricature of her outer lie 

Inside was far, far darker

Shadows of shadow

The precipice to a great, voracious hollow 

into which I fell

Where bone-fused gondolas  

upon icey streams 

surged ripples to my slowly decaying heart

 

But while it still pulsed

There was hope

 

And all we really have, in a worl...

Advent 2020

Hard to believe that it's December and we're coming to the end of a year that has presented many challenges. In the Christian tradition, candles are lit for Advent, representing hope, love, joy, peace, and the light of the world. This year we're waiting for vaccines, an end to lockdowns and tiers and I've tried to ...

It's A Choice

Love is a tricky thing 
Working hard to bring
Two people together
But time shows
Eventually
True colors sadly
Become normality 
Familiarity 
Some don't see
What they sacrifice 
Continuing to give up
Compromise
Their want's their needs
All to keep the peace
Not to displease
The one they say they love
Letting go of some
Isolating the ones
You miss
Dont dismiss
The feeling that dw...

Roots of Love

Roots of Love

Ones moon rises as the others descends.

The Sun brings their identity as they unlock their worlds.

One gusts into the world as Air.

One ignites into the world as Fire.

One love’s expressing through intellectuality!

One’s motivated by inspirations and aspirations!

The moon is the Soul of their identities.  

One’s Soul reacts to experiences,

with discernment ...

In The Moonlit Night

I wished I could talk to the stars
As I walked alone in the moonlit night,
The light of the passing by cars,
Enhanced the beauty of the sight.

I sat down on the grass by the street
To add a few pages to my old sketchbook.
But you suddenly came to meet,
Perfectly letting me off the hook.

Now I walked with you
To live the best day of my life.
Everything began anew
The moment you asked me ...

Composition of Intimacy

Compostition of Intimacy

With fears of eternal solitude, I called truce.

Obstacles fill the atlas of our hearts, 

distracting our impressions of exquisite Love.

Our painful beliefs insist we reprieve our minds,

voiding our previously learned doctrines of romance.

Phobias of Love furiously traveled the hourglass of our lives.

Chaos constrained our philosophy of enchantment,

Giving Tuesday

Forget Black Friday.

Cancel Cyber Monday.

Go Giving Tuesday! 

How can we focus on material things,

superficial gifts,

when children are starving,

sick, neglected, abused, 

need clean water to drink...

If 2020 has taught us anything,

it is to see more clearly, 

appreciate what we have, 

lend a helping hand. 

Together we rise above mediocrity, 

spread love in o...
