Drifting

falling-angels-feathers-bluePainting pictures in the sky
days drift
one into the other

lazily

time passes
and I too drift

carried on
thought clouds

light as a feather’s soft
tickle and caress.

Back to a place of calm
which had been all too elusive
after the last of the storm.

She is there
radiating the sun’s warmth
onto my skin
smiling at my content.

I’m not in competition
no game to win or lose
no more woe or worry
of lies or half truths.

None of it matters anymore

I go with the flow now
and simply

become the moment.

Risk

3bbad79f08a5b54e19e34c03602112a8 (1)Through foggy windows
thoughts are raindrops
sliding down the pane

Fingers trace their
line of fall
but stop
as they dissolve.

A smile penetrates
the gloomy grayness of
a day spent searching
without knowing
…for what.

Eyes cannot lie
they speak in a
million tongues
what words may
never say

Waves chop and change
their flow whichever
way the wind blows

A loving heart
a loving soul
never wonders

if it’s too far to go
and too much to bear
to risk it all
for love.

Time

HourglassSand slips through
the hourglass

but time is as
immortal as love
and, cannot be contained.

A hand reaches for a memory
to hold for a few precious
moments before another
grain falls.

Breath in the Wind

tumblr_mgf2x04U8t1qdsq0ao1_1280The fire within
burns bright as a million suns
but
I have run

turned away from crowds
and walked alone
far, far away
sometimes too far
from home

And still, unconquered
I race against the tide

You sweep into my thoughts
(stealthy)
like a thief in the night
as I pass the pen across lines
but see the story written now
in those upon my face.

Laughter
tenderness
tears

A soul-deep love
that left me lost like
breath in the wind.

Just some thoughts wanted to be written

I want

ButterflyonhipI want

To feel sunshine on my
back as I go forth into
future times.

I want

to leave dark shadows behind
and bathe in the beautiful light
of universal love.

I want

my ears to hear natures
own sweet music and feel
her notes sweep over
the peace of
my soul.

I want

to be the lightest feather
on the tip of a wing
that soars.

I want

to live as gay and free
as a butterfly dancing
on the hip of
naked life.

Life should all be so simple…really.

My heart gently weeps

385133cfd455921c84d8945bbac3f158Softy,
you always leave me softly

One last slow dance in
loves embrace

One kiss before you go
to lips that want you so
to stay but watch you
walk into
the mist of time

from that moment on
….no longer mine.

One final softly whispered sigh
One tear which trickles from
desparing eyes.

Only the moon can hear my
anxious breathing now
her beams and cloak of
diamond stars
my hope
my light
Soft glow guardians of
a lonesome night.

One tortured soul you’ve
left behind.
One restless mind
One love to keep and hold
so dear

And so you sleep….

Whilst
my heart gently weeps.

Because love… if it’s real…never dies.

The One

1210864-bigthumbnailSpeak to me through the power
of my dreams, if you will.

Take me to the places
only you have seen and
I will follow, trusting
as a lamb, in all
good faith.

Speak to me as I make
my way on
lifes confusing paths,
and in the silent hours
where energy replenishes
the soul, I will grow
within the balance
and harmony of that
blessed glow
of light.

Speak to me that I may
learn just some of what
there is to know, and
continue to teach a child that
she too may grow wise
in living, loving
ways.

I see your face in the
stars that light the sky
and in rays which warm us
on coldest, winter days.

I hear your voice in
the wind which whistles
and blows all around the
lonely hills at times
and, feel your touch
in oceanic waves that
lap at the shores
and tranquil beaches
of my heart.

Speak to me with my
eyes wide open or
shut, it matters not.

For I hear you now
in the peace of my
soul, and the peace
of my soul knows
you are

…the One.

Heart

heart_on_fire_wallpaper__yvt2O heart
where is that
fearless streak
which saw you tremble
yet still
stand your ground

With the last breath
you vowed
‘no surrender’
to faint lines
or lies.

Life hangs in
precarious balance of
here or there
of which, I am
neither.

Words seek play
across the page and
I yield their caress
to the dance, aware
that I may never speak
yet, feel so deep.

O heart
you are always so true
to your loves.

Fly

1574r-21604In my dreams I can fly.
In my dreams I’m in the sky.
I don’t need any magician things
for in my dreams
I’m given wings.

Daydreams see me wide awake
…yet dreaming

Sleeping in my memories.

I am the spirit having flown
who loves the feel of flight
and delights in being
as light as the air upon
which I breathe
…and soar.

Who could ask for more
as I preen and smooth these
wings of love
loving every single moment

…that, caress of
feathered down in
my beak as I lift
and tease

sift them into perfect place.
then, satisfied

open them wide

Take off, finding instant
peace and freedom as I
soar up high above the
clouds of my discontent
then, settle down to glide
up there in the wide
blue yonder.

Still wonder why I love it?

Come with me

find freedom in
that sky

Close your eyes
and

simply….

Fly

This Moment

Golden SandsTurn away
but you’ll still have
all you need to look
life in the eye.

No matter how sad
no matter the sorrow

Faith will always
see me believe
it was enough
to know

and

breathe aloud to
cover the long silence

of

this moment
fallen out of time.

Lines

laughter lines

Music

Ah,
where would I be
without those notes
of sanity.

They’re all Greek to me

yet,

make such a beautiful
noise.

A semi quaver
treble clef

A note
suspended momentarily
and I shiver from the
silence in between.

Passion stirs in the pauses
which rise and fall.

I swim with its flow
realising I cannot read but,
can clearly hear the sounds of
ecstasy and love
you share in every line.

Light

Doveblue

People pass
enjoy blue sky

soft, sensual

my soul still weeps
for you, for me
for history

but,

Time can’t erase
the promise of
eternity.

Birds take to flight

…glide
smooth

like my hands upon your skin
set yours to shivering.

The veil into beyond

transparent

allows light to seep within
seeking the darkest corners
where you hid
among my suffering

but…

You gave such gifts
and never truly knew
grief too, is one

and,

Without the dark
we’d have no need of light

A Painful Bliss

writing2The page was blank
but, it began with words
a song, a smile
music, laughter shared.

A glance, a dance
two hearts afraid
take another
chance.

Life had bought us
to our knees where
we prayed
You, in your way
me, in mine.

Battles fought, lost and won

A touch, a kiss,
hurts undone.

Path then taken
to the greatest love
twin souls caressed
each others tears
and all of fear
soon fled.

A beginning
a middle
right through to the end.

Such painful bliss.

Knowing

Ocean loveA soft breeze gently lifts my hair
sparkles on the water now increase
after winters dying.

I play a lovers theme

Release

Relax

Let go within the
steady flow of notes amid

A harmony of mood which
(until now)
had been all too evasive.

The last battle
nearly bought about my undoing

But,

Your spirit moved me
into no surrender.

There was a momentary madness
a necessary sadness

Yet through pain
comes wisdom

I endured the fire

….knowing.

Sometimes I fall

I fall because I want
yet,
know there is a difference
between want and need.

I had a dream
Let go and, let God
they say
and, I try

Yes, yes, I try.

Some days I shine
a brand new button
on my jacket of life.
I wear it so proud
and bask in the beauty
of its glow.

Other days I’m dull
feathers fall
and the secret path
stays hidden
so,
I race to hide behind
the eclipse.

Indulge me if you see
me run

It’s just me letting go
and
trying to stay sane.
