The Edge

You’ll find me, dancing Through the cycle of the seasons,Between the salt-laced fold of oceansAt the edge of Reason’s grip  Where in the gentle darkness;Beside the flames licking the firewood A whisper grows, a yearning turnsThe blood to honeyed-wine Then I’ll seek the giddy silenceThat spikes the music, with its notesOf melting snow, beggingFor the burnt touchContinue reading “The Edge”

Winds of change

Dancing with my shadow Cleansed by the waves of an incoming tide I transcend the physical In search of the spiritual And in the gentle glow Of a melting afternoon sun Brightest gold after the storm I surrender to the flow Of wherever the winds Will blow me next; I feel it coming, the timeContinue reading “Winds of change”

Frosty waters

Like piercing needles cold to heat Of frozen water penetrating deep And tuning in with mountain air I breathe in strong to what lays there; Hidden beneath the folds of frost There’s a golden secret long been lost Rhythm of earth pulse of fire A yearning grows to fierce desire That we may build bridgesContinue reading “Frosty waters”

Yearning

Come; Together let’s cross the raging river Of broken dreams And new beginnings The weeping waters Telling stories Of forgotten loves Hopeless ambitions Lost in time Then rising again An echo, a whisper Of aching desire The deepest yearning For the human soul to find another who – just might share their vision

Stillness

How many moments pass me by While I try to capture one In a still frame, which never shows The truth, the life beyond . Hiding away the fierce laughter, And frowns of a troubled soul Alone in the endless expanse Of a vast sleepless void . What beauty sighs beyond my grasp? Butterflies sweptContinue reading “Stillness”

The other half

Sound of silence, Web of stillness First you tense, As emptiness Shocks your bones; Alone, afraid to Face the ghost within. But one day You’ll learn, you’ll grow Hearing the music In your soul; The friend, the lover Always there to Gently guide you home. Photographer: Robert Doisneau

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

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”

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”
