Secret Garden

Let your eyes indulge, feasting On a thousand flowers blooming; In Nature’s secret garden Array of colour, blissful delight Bathing you in delicate light; The glory of hidden treasure The birds call and a breeze plays Sweeping you into the mystery haze; Of Life’s impressionist painting

The Universe within

Come searching for that place Where there’s stillness in the chaos Yet momentum Even on those doldrums days – When nothing moves And what you thought was peace Morphs into Gloomy brooding   Once there, you’ll quieten the heart Racing in trepidation; But still invigorate the mind When trapped by its exertion   And finally,Continue reading “The Universe within”

Elements

Leaves, Blown by the wind Chasing each other Fearless and bold   Sun, Still burning bright Yet it won’t be long Till night takes hold   Earth, Give me your strength To face darkness with Courage and might   For I wish to be As free as the wind As pure as the rain HeartContinue reading “Elements”

Walk with me

The road is never straight when It runs beside a river Curving with the wild waters That know not man’s boundaries   Amble with me on this trail And I’ll teach you what I’ve learnt What lies beyond the harsh lines Assumptions too often made   As we walk the sun will sink But fearContinue reading “Walk with me”

To share a story

The time that I find myself a- slipping into the desperate clutch of madness; that is the time I know I need to write, to let out all emotion’s waves, channel them;   Chasing them all into the day, for all to read the profanity of insanity’s whispering; the other voice inside my mind, itContinue reading “To share a story”

Rose Garden

The seasons, here you watch them come and go, like lovers that change every time the spark of unnamed delight, turns and drifts over to another soul   Just as you’ve smelt the roses, their summer blooms start fading; leaving but a thorny note of regret, as petals fall, hope and belief dissolving   NowContinue reading “Rose Garden”

Lessons

Those sentient stones, guarding the gates to another world Solemn sentries, reminding of a dark, unstable past   I look to them in wonder of what it is they’ve lived through And in their mighty story they can offer us a clue   From those fading, misty years when the earth coughed raging fire AndContinue reading “Lessons”

Disguise

I thought I knew you and so I Dropped the façade, that measured guard; Protection from enemy eyes –   Then through a trembling night we waltzed A shy courtship in the shadows; You gaze, though soft, never wavered   My hardened heart began to heal As gently I believed again In a love thatContinue reading “Disguise”
