Seeds

Maybe

I have always known…

 

the seeds of love

now fully grown,

would remind me

of all that’s lost

and tossed

aside…


in the living

of life…


and giving 

away

of

our truth.

A Pebble

So here I am…

my ragged edges

made smooth; softened

by life’s jagged touch,

like a pebble plunged

through the rocky flow,

knowing nothing

for sure…

 

though the water

is  pure.

Them

She wondered…

 

would the merging

of  our love,

above and beyond

all measure… 

 

stem

the hatred created

by

them…

 

the fear

and greed

that bleeds the souls

of

all of us…

 

thus…

outweighed?

A Ripple

All this

seems so important

 

so amplified

and magnified by

our

converse

smallness…

 

though…

 

within

the universe…

 

it’s

just

a tiny 

ripple

of change…

Greatness

When oceans part

and stars align,

we  hesitate….

 

for even though

we know

our way

is clear…

 

we fear

our greatness.

Eclipse

I too

have known

that struggling heart;

the one made light

by darkness…

 

for the arc

of the eclipse

shines

brightly.

Storm

I found myself

in a tempest…

 

the brewing storm

of awakening,

that knew

no bounds

on its

final day…

 

it swept away

all things

empty…

 

all things

decayed.

The Circle

And so

it seems

some dreams must fall

whilst others call

from beyond

time…

 

like a circle

connecting…

 

a  miracle….

 

reclaimed.

The Opening

The opening

is known….

 

the happening awaits

its own 

becoming…

 

it was tied and bound;

lost and found…

 

now a tide of trust

will guide

us.

Junctures

Junctures

always emerge…

 

the converging lines

connecting

as if

divinely

timed…

 

mesmerising mystery

of endings

and beginnings…

 

rearranging

and changing

 

everything.

Time Cliches

Oh why

do we spend time

to kill time,

willing it away

in fast forward mode;

longing for meaning;

something real…

 

and here we are

on borrowed time

waiting…

 

for time

to heal

us?

Disentangle

Disentangle

all the torn 

outworn 

pieces

still inside you…

 

bruised emotion;

quiet disgrace;

the untruths

 

within…

 

that buried place

where light 

breaks in…

 

and love

begins!
