Flying

Standard

Light your load
To find your wings
For flying’s
Such a simple thing
To do you soar
When you
Release the haul
Of names you carry
On your back
That heavy load
Yet still feel lack!
Relax
For you can
Lift with birds
With clouds
In rapture rise
From earth
To sing with stars
Blow kiss to moon
All this for letting
Go the who
The what and wherefore
Are you if you be
Forget such selves
Your truth flies free

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…

Springtime of Your Soul

Standard

The need

For your true

Only stow

Of secret Seeds

Your store

 To sow

Let grow now throw

Away restrictions husk

Let burst the casting coat

You wore

Go thrust through form

That held you well

All winter warm

And safe enough

To swell desires

Core for more

Of richly ripe

So ready raw

The rude extrusions

Of your soul

That have to give

And give to live

So live it well

Your welling will

Yes, fill up deep

From wishes draw

Sweet dreams and spin

Your spells expel

Seep into ground

Around you stand

See understand

What you become

When letting go

Your one and only

True to seed

You’re more

Not less

In giving feed

Your spirit

Lead your heart

Fulfil your longing

Spring your start.

Daring Darling

Standard

Daring darling
Crying crescent
Moon your tears
Are falling dews
In mourning
Quenching thirst
Of Earth to thrive
Alive
Come morning
Break your grief
Is flown from sun
Is shown Erase
Your traces
Given graces
You had sown
In love to meet
The needy
All your loss
For gain is ours
The cost you bear
Your tears fulfilment
There in care
You break and leak
For earths beseech you dare

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…

Uni-Verse

Standard

The
One poem
Unites us all
The
Only song
Of old and new
Creations muse
In music strums
The rhythm of the
Heartbeat drums
The World
In rhythm singing rings
Within your longings
Dreams are wings
You fly within your heart
You feel
The whole of soul
The all and Knowing
Ever flowing
Underlying overriding
All surrounding
You astounding
In abiding
Just confiding
Eyes are blinding
See beyond what seems…
