Guts

Standard

Takes guts
Your guts
To heal
Your wounds
The roadways to
Your Soul
So follow flow
Of red your blood
Only the thread
That shed
To mend
The torn
So stitch
I see you do
You itch
To right what’s wrong
To sing a different song
What’s sung
You care
To dare
Your guts
Are there
Contain the only fairness
To remain
Is what you cast around
Yourself
Such justice
Just is
This you see
You write your book
Of fates to be

To Heal…

Standard

Let me whisper how
Your healing grows
You know your knowing
Knows
Your kernel
Core has more
And more than you
Can ever dream
To hold your holding
Is your emptiness
Of things let me
Impress what seems
Is meaningless
Unless you grow
To follow in
The only thread
You sew
Your truth to flow
Your grace is this
The rest is just
The things that will not last
The future past
Is never with your now
This is your gap
Your how
The grasp of that
Which keeps
You tied to crap
Let go
You know
Your so
Your healing
Trust is just
This inner
Seed you grow
Your knowing
Kernal core
Holds more
Than you can ever dream
Your seem is not
What you’re here for
Your more and more
So own such things
Of Self you are your
Lore of letting be
Yourself in motion
Set to be there’s
Ever more your meaning
Wealth is never yore
Your feeling free
Your song unchained
Unwrit is yet
You write your self
You get to be
Your right
To heal is here
You see
Your sight
Is never blind
They say that love is
I say kind
Your kindred soul
Unwinds
You spin your destiny
With me we’re
This and this
We are the spinning earth
Our girth is wide
Enough to hold
Ourselves so green and
Blue we grow in to
What is to be
Become the light
That is our hope
We are our only home
We never left
So rest for life
Is not a test
Our sleep is best
When we’re awake
In wonder at the rate
We heal so feel
Complete within
The incompletion
We have all
There’s no depletion
We secrete ourselves
The substance heals
This healing’s easy
Comes so naturally
No mystery
Just actually occurs
And to concur
I leave you with
What has begun
Your Self…

Precipice

Standard

Standing on the precipice
I don’t look down
I raise my eyes
Into the oceans
Of the skies
The stars that fly
The clouds that stalk
Within its waves
I walk across the precipice
Of days
I swim in air
I cannot drown
Nor fall
In this rich buoyancy
Enthrals I reach
The other side
I never died
I swum I flew
Simply put
I grew…

Dervish

Standard

Fervours fever
Dervish whirling
Turning evolutions
Wheel
Revolves its
Spinning round
And rounds
Creations song
Is singing now
No nouns It’s growing
Going gone
Yet on and on
Feel the heartbeat
Of the living
futures tumbling
In a throng
see such sunlight
Seed the greening
Force for growing
Sowing needing
Time is motion
For no meaning
Sense nonsensical
This dance is leading
Ecstasy
Exhilarations
Feeling right in place
At home
Atoned in grace
Is here no face just being
Loved and loving life
Is reeling
Peeling falsehoods
Daze revealing
Naked truth in evolutions
Revolutions
Wheels are turning
Changes round
Creations song
Is singing bold
And going gone
Yet on and on…

The Call of the Wild

Standard

Wild wayward child
Walk glad
The path that’s
Always never tamed,
Untrod un-parted
Started where?
Such brambles run to trip
Ensnare of thorn
That just may pierce
To make you bleed
You need your light
Your only light
Your guide will
Dwindle and dissolve
Into such pools of
Shadows locked in flocks
Of spectres haunting cries
For there
With reverential care
In every step uneven
Never knowing where it leads
Or lead
You even
Lose your wits
You yet
Had longed to shed
That self
Like worn out clothes
You may just drop
To let your naked skin
Begin to breathe
Expose like birth
Alone you never needed
false apparels
Never suited ways
That others trod the same
Your name was never
Thing unchanging
Always re-arranging
You are not the same
You are a traveller
Your heart
On grounds no one
Has walked before
Or will again
For it is told
That those who walk the path
That others fear to tread
Reap riches for all souls to wed
And more can feast of food
That ever satiates
The hungry heart
Become the Gods that shape
The destinies your fate
And not Forsake for long
The paths that you
And only you
With wild wilfulness
In truth can walk afar
Can make your own
You own and find
Alone your way
Where darkness lies
Are answers
Answer call
For after all
You are a willing
Wild child
Not destined for
What has been
But primed for finding
All that may become
Along your solitary
Wandering come
Intransigence eternal transit
Freedoms to be found
Within the wildness
All around
Walk free!

Oppression and Resistance

Standard

In fields of Asphodel
They lay
The slaughtered
Daughters
Dead
Their stay
In underworlds of dark
Dismay
Yet can they rise again
We ask
To bask in sun
Redeem the past
May they live
To conquer death?
Is hope dispelled
Devoid of breath
For always
Life can not
No never stop
Life will grow
Where once could not

Beyond the Veil

Standard

See through
Your veil
If you avow
To seek beyond
What you can see
To feel what you
Have never felt
Before those dreams
You never had
To find what you
Do love so much
It hurts to be alive
This ecstasy of diving
Into ocean streams
Of living widely open
Means to go beyond
Where you have been
To blow like leaves
Upon the winds
Of happenstance
Your chance
The future
In your hands
Your heart
Will always start
Again to care
To see beyond
The veil you wear
