Prayer for Purpose

Circle of Life

I’m watching our shadows, chasing, overtaking, the bike. Then fading back. It’s my favourite thing to do when riding a motorcycle at night, as a passenger of course. Please don’t do this when driving. It’s a repeating cycle of encroaching shadowy darkness, which is blitzed by that shining light of the headlights. “How do youContinue reading “Circle of Life”

It’s nothing major; just a burn fromContinue reading “Slow it Down”

Wholeness

I wake, and I remember you; divine essence from a wistful dream’s calling And so I rise, shine in my truth from burnt shadow to flaming grace; I’ve learnt to sate that inner longing for another’s sweet, loving blessing; I’ve united with that love in my soul, with the collective heartbeat in mine * *Continue reading “Wholeness”
