Living Within Love

Intuiting multi-dimensional truths

The art of being

Harmonious communication with every atom spiralling

The highest vibrational energy

Illuminated pathway

Intuition followed

Emotions guiding

Existing beyond dimensions

Being love

Living love

Limitless within love

Summer Rain

To walk in the cleansing summer rain

Nirvana for humans and parched ground

Pine trees, roses, the damp earth

And a thousand other scents

All at once brought alive

Teasing senses with their beauty

Thoroughly soaking wet and caring not

Simple joys of being alive…

Last Train

Just as we think we have reached the end

Seemingly no way forward

All options apparently exhausted

I am reminded of train number 48624

Fallen out of use

Abandoned to the scrapheap

Or so it seemed

 

One winter’s day in the nineteen eighties

Stood facing into the icy wind

As with frozen fingers I take a photograph

Preserved for posterity now

This relic of a former...

Inspiration In A Rose

Inspiration…where to seek pure inspiration?

That innermost creative beauteous elation

Living the urban life and wondering how

Is inner connection possible here and now?

Walking these city streets looking around

It’s alive in the buildings, people and sound

Yet here is nature, she never quite goes

Find yourself a park and go smell a rose

Mirrored Imagination

Look into the windows of my soul

As I study the windows of your soul

All at once reflected to me

Portal to your higher self

Oneness

Are You Ready?

Spend your life dreaming about trivia and that's what you end up with
Make your dreams big ones...big, bold and in glorious technicolour
Paint them across your imagination and go wild.
And if the dream is possible, however remotely, there is a good chance the way will be made available to achieve your dream.
It will happen...the choice is then yours...how much do you want it? and how brave do ...

Today in this 21st Century

Today I pull up the drawbridge

My domain

My castle

None may enter

 

Today I go to the mountain

My niche

My cave

None may find me

 

Today I commune with nature

My forest

My seashore

None may follow

 

Today I bid adieu for a while

My freedom

My retreat

None may know

Questioning

It took me a while

Yet there is not a clock ticking here

Looking outwards I observed life

Pondering inwardly

When the student is ready

 

I know the answer now

Oh finally, the truth is revealed

The great unanswered mystery

A “How to” manual to life

Well, it is all about questions

 

Every time we think

We ask ourselves questions

Even opting out of making de...

Endless Possibilities

Confidence comes from self-knowing

Knowing is to journey within

Within is the source of all wisdom

Wisdom is to truly master life

Life is about self-knowing

Knowing oneself is growing

Growing is the true path

Paths all lead to inner wisdom

Wisdom is an acceptance

Acceptance is to know oneself

Oneself the true source of knowing

Knowing yet never knowing all

What About Me?

I see them

Seeking a bluer sky

Those streets seemingly paved with gold

A charmed life looked at from a distance

 

What about me?

I am grateful to waken this morning

Another day of possibilities

I make my reality

Tales To Tell

Fine jester in the court of noble king

Telling his stories in songs to sing

If he didn’t please, he’d lose his head

Which would leave him feeling pretty dead

 

Music hall orator his tales shared

Before his audience his soul he bared

Needing to be fit, fast on his legs

If unliked he’d be pelted with eggs

 

Before them stood the poet tall

In tradition of jester and m...

Some People

Some people take themselves terribly seriously

These people are to be avoided at all costs

Apparently, they give off toxic fumes…

 

Some people only like the sound of their own voice

These people are to be avoided at all costs

Apparently, their ears are malfunctioning…

 

Some people have their headphones so loud all can hear

These people are to be avoided at all costs

Observed On My Travels

There it sits nailed to its tree

So long after the event…so long

A statement of intent to make

And yet the message was lost to me

Sadly, lost within their ignorance

Here we have a living thing

It has lived longer than you or I

Vital for our survival…essential

Wounded, yet still very much alive this tree

And how one rusty nail speaks volumes

As it holds it’s now faded ...

Dragons

The still point

Emanating inner calm

Externalised

Transcendent understanding

Meditation

Absolute power

 

Never seen

Yet tangible

Impossible to know

Yet all knowing

Elusive

Yet in everything

 

Wisdom pervading

Beyond logic

Poise naturally

Elegant actions

Serenity deep within

Attuned to source

 

Spiritual warrior

Advocate of peace

The Jacket

Her most treasured possession

Fraying

Veritably threadbare

Once brown

Now no longer

Original colour faded out

Existing only in memory

As he does now

Grandpops

Her adored Grandpops

 

Three years since he passed away

His jacket

The one he wore come rain or shine

Became hers

Only hers

And the emotions

Which came with it

She wore it every day

Solitude Where Are You?

The story is the same

It’s always the same

Escape from wall to wall people

Festivities, trivialities

Desiring a different experience

Hear my heart beat

Truly breathe

Solitude where are you?

 

For once to be truly alone

Ways to seek

Seek and you will find

New Year’s Day finds me in a forest

Far from the moderate crowd

Rain lashes down and I care not

The Dawning of Understanding

So many feel the need to fight

Living life without inner light

Why do so many appal

Simple fact that Love is all                                    

My desire all lost souls see

Potential for all they can be

Life make of what we will

Finding our own truths until

Our future to be shaping, moulding

Parallel with our learning unfolding

Emotional balance only natural

Finding Himself In Nature

Deep in the heart of the forest

He lingers a moment to rest

He knows well his destination

Two hours meander his estimation

Finding the oldest tree of all, he hesitates

Sat, leant against the trunk he meditates

 

High within the mountain peaks

Within himself answers he seeks

All the world below somewhere

Quietly he finds his spot up there

Sheltered by cairn, thought...

Amber

The street infused with an amber glow

Changing moods and colours into a twilight reality

Of half remembered days before

When night was dark and a panorama of stars stretched out across the sky

All the constellations existing as everyday entities

The Pole Star…re-assuring in its certainty to guide the way

Whole Oceans being crossed using only the night sky as a map

Compasses b...

The Ancient Tree

A thousand years or more it’s lived so they say, at least

Centuries before it became guardian for the deceased

These ancient builders of the church all knew

The magical and deadly power of the yew

 

Locked deep inside the secret of immortality

Pure poison within the yew, result fatality

Sitting in quiet contemplation, “tell me fine tree

A thousand years lived, what did you ...

BEAUTY OF YOUR NATURE

Returning to innocence

Our inner you of you

Innocent as a small child

Attuned to learn from nature

The clearest sky

The breeze cleansing

Warm sun on your back

Guided by the stars at night

Infinity mirrored within

Purest beauty

The beauty of pure love

Nature Freely Gives

Jack In The Green awakens from his slumber

Spring is upon us, nature in all her wonder

Gaze in awe of rebirth, renewal, fertility

Stood deep in the forest, deep within tranquillity

 

Robin Goodfellow his mischief to perform

Souring milk, trampling crop circles from fields of corn

Tripping those who into the green wood unwary tread

Laughing, yet another traveller away from p...

The Same Thing Anyway

Our perception of reality

Our place in the world

Reality bubbles

Peering outward

From fathoms deep within

 

Sometimes overnight

Maybe a lifetime

Or more than one

Dismantle our own bubble

Take a good long look at you

 

Then the world

Created around and within us

Transformation underway

Re-learning

Awakening from spiritual amnesia

 

Unfolding

If I Take My Leave

If I take my leave of the green green wood

Home to Herne the Hunter and Robin Hood

Sunlight finding its way through the branches…magical

A living breathing ecosystem starting with the botanical

The symphony of nature provided by operatic birdsong

Natural balance perfecting, every creature does belong

 

If I take my leave of the green green wood

Would it cease to exist? I wo...

Art Of Being

To fathom all the depths

The art of being

Harmonious communication with every atom spiralling

The multi-dimensional way of truth

The river so to carry

Intuition intelligence

Emotional maturity

Existing beyond dimensions

Simultaneously exuding love

Living within love

Limitless…

Footsteps

Back in the mists of time we walked these shores

This view we have seen

Meditated on this rock

To the sound of waves lapping gently

Footsteps, walking in our own past

 

Back in the mists of time we walked in this forest

These trees our friends

Meditated leant against the old oak

To the sound of the birdsong chorus

Footsteps, walking in our own past

TO THE MOUNTAIN TO FREEDOM

She had journeyed far from the valley below

Through many trials compelled to undergo

Ascent the hardest choice and yet no choice

Listening as she had to her own inner voice

Her focus, her life spent climbing upwards

Often two steps forward, one backwards

Determinedly she continued her endless quest

Grateful to know the mountain, deeply blessed

Looking back she sees obstacle...

Boots 1

The boots are quite small to fit small feet

They are pulled on before sunrise

Sleep being forsaken, for there is work to do

And being late is out of the question

The boots walked along the well-worn track

To the place of noise and danger

For another day of clearing cotton fluff

Dodging the scary machinery that could crush her in a second

The dirt and smell sometimes making ...

Come Work In Our Factories

Long hours spent toiling the land, his family had done for generations

Living in tune with the seasons, never thinking of other occupations

Farmers his father and grandfather before him had been, what else to be?

Of his sons he was proud, he said “one day you will take over from me”

 

Come work in our factories, leave your village, leave your land

Come work in our factories, live...
