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

A blurred world

I like it when I take my glasses off When the world around me becomes hazy For there’s a kind of beauty in the mist Something precious about imperfection I like the escape from the harsh, blunt world Lines so visibly drawn and too precise Where we police a division, distinct Between the black andContinue reading “A blurred world”

Distraction

You’re most vulnerable Absent distraction Nothing to hide your Bubbling emotion   You thought the reverse That with time and space You’d at last find a Break from your mind’s race   But there is no calm No stillness and ease When really, deep down The soul is diseased   Image: Edvard Munch, The DayContinue reading “Distraction”

Broken

Dear Love, why does it hurt so much When all the pieces fall apart An aching wound, a bleeding hole; Though I once yearned to be alone Sweet love how did it all go wrong When was it that our paths diverged? What took us travelling on this course; Or were we doomed right fromContinue reading “Broken”

Serenity

Take me far from civilisation Where, in the mellowing twilight haze, The sea meets the sky, a whispered touch Like the luring kiss of temptation; And to infinity your eyes gaze Singing to serenity’s calling There’s no need for a destination When you’re content, to wander life’s maze Caught in the beauty of the moment

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
