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

Premonition

I have the same dream, over and over Where I’m running as though I’m trying to Reach infinity Picking up the pace, across the green fields I’m running as the clock is ticking, and I must reach the sea   Then I am there, the water before me A carpet of blue that reaches outContinue reading “Premonition”

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”
