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”

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

Revelation

So now you know the truth my dear, I’ve revealed all to thee; The battle fought behind closed doors – Brooding gloom of the past Now liberation sings sweetly, That there’s no more to hide; And blessed is my twitching heart – Calmed now you’re there inside   Image: Girl with a Pearl Earring, JohannesContinue reading “Revelation”

The Dawning Night

The sun, she stoops to kiss the sea Reluctant touch, as fatefully Her colour bleeds away from sight Cedes to murky realms of twilight But until then she glows fiercely Defiant of her destiny Rebelling against her night foes Though caught in death’s spasmodic throes Up above an erupting sky Signals to all a warningContinue reading “The Dawning Night”

Prophet

The sweet light that you bring, shining To the depths of my stormy mind Filtering through the tears, it makes The most colourful of rainbows   Then in the sanctuary of your calm This peaceful place, love seizes me And holds me tight, while watering Seeds of hope you long ago sowed   Are youContinue reading “Prophet”
