Satiety

Standard

Things I ate

About you

Are the things

I hate but do

And you

Hate the things

That you

Had to take in

Too we do

A lot of got

To taking for

The making

Of ourselves can

We eschew

These things undo

The knots that tie

Us to the things we use

To mind us could we

Ever lose to find us

We are seekers

In our blindness

Bleeding need to

Redefine us

Make some room

Inside for new

Replace in haste

To recompense

The waste of things

We hate but ate

Inside us we may

Never rest

Until our best

Through appetite

Takes in our right

And satiates our fighting

To be free

Let Your Light….

Standard

If

you look for me

Thinking

 I am lost

Just look within

For there you find

The piece of mind

You thought was me

Had left behind

I sit in waiting

All along for you

To realise

Nothing wrong

In you

I long for you

To know me

To hold me and

To grow me

To show to me

That waiting world

Of bright that calls

To me to live in light

Set free and be

In you alive

Outside

Dignity

Standard

In the weak mid-winter

Of my soul I know

The whole of me

Can grow

Magnanimity

My own inside

The kind humanity

I long to be

This freedom

Is our end

In this beginning

We can send

Ourselves to rest

Be safe at home

In earth this body

Each hour in trust

To fear no evil

It will be as dust

Borne lightly on the wings

Of wise that span so wide

All time will not divide

The weak Mid-winter

Of each soul

I know is pure is whole

Is thine and mine

We are each one

Divine seek truth

Through bleak

Mid-Winter week

See soul and know.

Present-ation

Standard

 

Very messy

In the mass

Of motion

That is nest of me

Dis-order unarranged

In process of a change

Not meditated

Mediated

Not so strange

As when you see

Such perfectly

Aligned refinement

Of design will never

Ring the bells

Of truth to tell

The tales of life

Are active

Uncontrolled

As we go rolling

Tolling stories

As unfolding tales

Of living we’re in

Strife to be alive

Not dead and said
