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

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”

Earth spirit

I remember when the earth was born When she was young and healthy and free The forests were lush, the rivers flowed With the passionate force of the wild   I remember I’d dance in the woods Wearing nothing but a cape of leaves Across the soil I’d stride barefoot, to Bathe in water thatContinue reading “Earth spirit”

Connection

Sometimes it’s not what’s said or done Not words, but silences between Where an echoing stillness guides You to a place of quiet peace; There a secret space awaits, and Only now you dare to open Up to trust, whilst comforting eyes Teach a different kind of lesson   Painting by Antoni Caba

The Awakening: Chapters 5 & 6

5. Midsummer Festivities:   The atmosphere on Linuina’s streets throbbed with increased excitement while the sun dwindled to make way for twilight. Soon the festive rituals would begin, hosted by none other than King Melchior himself. Adrianna looked up to the heavens to find magenta and gold streaks saluting her eyes. The colours stained theContinue reading “The Awakening: Chapters 5 & 6”
