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

Hero

imagesStrands of light
under a door
slips of hope
stream through in rays

sleek, silent
teardrops from the sun.

Would you give your life
like a hero
to save hers

(gladly)

Sunrise,
sunset

Poets and warriors
dare
to risk it all

for a look
a smile
a touch

which brings them in
from the wilderness
or, from being buried
deep among the ruins

of living life
without passion.

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.

Venus

vdmSo beautiful
elegant in pose

In sunlight or in shade
she stands

withstands all stares
and wild imaginings.

What is she thinking?

Only she knows

but

a harpist draws his strings
across those in my heart
causing them to shiver.

Forgotten moments
return the gaze

a touch so tender

She moves me in her
stillness

Such is the art
in love.

Passion

imageToday they fight
to fly

Wind blows wild
(a bit like my mood)
white horses gather a pace
as I too race against
the tide

and last night raged
against the moon
under a starless sky.

Sometimes I wonder

but,

the story remains
the same.

My soul sifts through
superficial anger
knowing you bought out
the best in me

there is no blame
and I resolve to always
remember

Nothing is ever lost
to passion.

Different day. Different moods. Watching the waves whipped up into white foam from high winds. It all seemed angry, just moods….

The way of love

stepsWords flow
in never ending stream
and music plays.

The silent scream
forgotten now
as time eases pain
’til only breath
remains.

Wind whistles a symphony
casting perfect shadows
on the darkest bend.

There is only one way

emptiness fed on a
slip of hope
light as the feather I caught
in its moment of fall

I breathe in a wish
where a promise of forever
touched my soul
with magic and mystery

There is only one way
(you said)

The way of Love

The God You Know

2572507She gazed into my eyes and
touched my soul

Caressed the pain it held
with sensual excellence.

No price was too high
no debt too great
no sacrifice too dear to
walk the path not taken.

When fates collide
the quest becomes
crusade.

It denies
hearts of darkness
to fulfill its destiny

reaching through
the ether to stroke the
ties that bind

to find purity in
fallen angels

to rescue a mortal beloved
for the greater good

to unite under a
Heavenly sky
and…

discover the God
you know

…is love.

Undone

LighthandsA smile
reaching beyond borders
held me

…Captive.

A breath in time
caught on winds of song

lifting sadness
took it on a
ride through joy.

Oh, the battles that I’ve had
mostly from within

…Yet

The Phoenix rises

her ashes soon forgotten
as she takes up her flight
again

Aware that even in death
She will never leave her
soul’s work

Undone.

A World Unseen

imageI follow footsteps in the sand
create my own
watch the tide’s ebb and flow
as life still turns

Spins a magic spell
in waves of sound
and

the day ends all too soon.

Lanterns on the way
chase away the dark

spiritual drums beat…
caress with a touch of grace
giving leave to memorize

…a face.

Immortal thoughts from
a world unseen

a glance
a dance in fireglow

I offer up a prayer
and share the secrets
of the dream.

Blue Moon

BluemoonI weep my silent tears that
no-one ever hears
nor knows occur
except for her….

My darling, lady moon.

She knows my secret sorrows
in all of my tomorrows
yet, never betrays those secrets
already told.

She’s big, she’s bright, she’s bold
and daring but yet, delicate and
oft times softly pale
caring only for her moon-child
minds well-being.

I tell her everything and
she sits there listening
never condemns
nor apportions blame
as she shines up above
on this one, she so loves.

I speak to her in whispers
of dreams that never came true
of years of silent waiting
for someone such as you
(my mate in soul)
who found me
but cannot be with me
much less share my life.

So, my lady moon
I turn to you once more
weep these silent tears
for the one that I adore
pour out this sorrow
from my aching heart
knowing that those
milken drops of mine
will reach the safety of your
Blue-moon hue
and that my secret sadness
is forever safe with you.

I wrote this back in 2000. Thought I’d publish again

Lines

music_note_and_people_vector_550932It’s all lines
laughter lines
life lines

Math

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.
