Trust of Self

Standard

The things
You fear to lose
Are dross
Just those
You need
No longer ‘cos
It’s love that’s strong
You make forever
Stays with you
This give and take
Of trust you choose
To build can
Never take a fall
You will withstand
More than you think
To feel your way ahead
You go into the
Never knowing
Peer into the
Not quite seeing
Visions safe within
The yet to be
You find the truth
Which sets you free
When instantly your being
You and me
I’m being me…

Be Longing…

Standard

Longing
Be longing
Is all we be
Belonging in
The green and gold
Of Old Young Earth
We sing the notes
That ring ourselves
The tune we bring along
A thing we never are
Is done we won
We’re here
No place
Just taste and momentary
Touch is all we need
To breath
No battle need we lead or
Ever fight ourselves
All that we be
Is from the gold
Within the heart
From green of soul
In all the things
That we can grow
We do not know
Such stars that swim
Through galaxies of oceans in
Ourselves and out
Infinity we have
Writ on our palm
Our charms we make
Is this be longing
All we long
For we do be
This is our
Opportunity to see
The wonder of ourselves
The wealth we seek
We have the beauty
Of ourselves to see
Our light is us
Enough we have enough
In green and gold
We hold the key
We are all that
There ever can
Wherever be
So fall upon your knees
To face divinity
You’re Earth and clay
Go kiss the ground
You walk upon
You may be blessed
When blessings give
To live the green and gold
Of love within
Simply
Unfold…

Facing the Wall

Standard

Turn away
From walls you face
The heart let go
To stone too easily
Can crack and break
In to a million shards
Which scatter pieces
Of yourself fall under foot
So vulnerable to stealth and
Further harm instead
Keep breathing
Life into what feels
To be an empty shell
Believe your strength
Is found in weakness
Not in power
The hour of becoming
Often burns with tenderness
So frail your fragile
Hope will rally
Courage is a thing
We cannot carry
Cannot own we only
Have the way the way we’ve been
And make our fate is not
What’s seen and got
All that is there
Is more you care
Enough to face a wall
Now face yourself
You can forestall
Your choice of view
Need not be all
Dead ends the road
We walk can be much richer
Than the road that’s trod
We’re not just clod and clay
We are the breath
The breathing
Might and may
We too can have
A say I say
That walls are lonely
Things to see
And to erect
‘tween you and me
Landscapes are things
We can elect
To see around
So turn be found
Be free
To walk as you
Would walk alongside
Me…

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…

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…

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

Will to Life

Standard

Put me in a box
You will not
With your locks
Stop this heart
From beating true
To who I need to be
Inside the free
Horizons of my soul
You cannot stop me going
Where I need to go
You cannot stop
The wild She
Who dances
With no legs
You took
Who sings
Without a voice
You stole
Whose cornucopia
Is whole and overflowing
Not the hole
You thought to leave
Behind You when
You took this territory
Then
What’s mine is mine
Within I find
You will not
Stop my rhyme
Although you claim my reason
I divine
You will not
Bury me beneath the weight
Of might you thought you were
For I will rise
On through the longing of
My sighs my need
To be alive to thrive
Forever strives and strives
On through the barriers of you
And all that you erect
I am so perfectly adept
At this I am
Myself and all I will to be
In me will grow
Just like a tree
Whose branches
Graze the sun and come
In ecstasy of being
Me my justice just is this
You see
Before you now
The thing you could not stop
Your lock could never hold
My soul
I grow you see I grow and grow…
