We Only Have The One Life

We only have the one life,
Why the fever and the fret?
When our duty is to love
And kiss before sorrows set.

We only have the one life
To touch and explore and dream;
Body revealed, mind-lamps lit,
Tanned in the unceasing gleam.

We only have the one life,
So no need to drown and frown;
Joy is there to be savoured
If wanting looks up not down.

HealingĀ 

I wake with a start
Darkness a blade
Cutting the heart.

In the thick of night
Comes a touch
A palm of light.

The sea knows no pain
What we grieve
It is in vain.

I hear a song
Weathered by years
A chorus,  a throng.

Arriving together
Naked as newborns
Kindling the heather.

Torn. Worn. Reborn.

Questions

Will you come dance with me?
Will you embrace this jamboree?
Will you revel in wholesome fun?
Will you dance beneath the sun?
Will you dress in dark leather?
Will you be light as a feather?
Will you leap on a mountain?
Will you flow like a fountain?
Will you tear off your mask?
Will you ride through the dark?
Will you tremble into this?
Will you give a fragrant kiss?
Will you?

Christmas Day

This Christmas Day –
Joy it is to be alive
World of innocence
I drink in
Your blazing beauty.

This Christmas Day –
Gifts unwrapped
Earth breathing purity
I touch your grace
With grateful awe.

This Christmas Day –
Full-throated cries
Leap from ridge to bridge
I hear your music
Choir of contentment.

This Christmas Day –
A feast to treasure
The sacred bonds
Heightened
In word and in song.

This Christmas Day –
Immersed in
Rich moments
Let the soul float
Light as a feather.

This Christmas Day –
Embrace true mirth
Communion
Of light
Laughter’s sweet balm.

This Christmas Day –
Giving and getting
What the heart
Loves
Cherish and keep.

Walk With Me


Walk with me
In sun and in rain
Walk with me
Through the pain.

Walk with me
Across the fields
Walk with me
Where darkness yields.

Walk with me
Over the hills
Walk with me
To the silent thrills.

Walk with me
To the sultry sea
Walk with me
Naked and carefree.

Walk with me
Avenues unwind
Walk with be
Unclothe your mind.

Walk with me
Beyond the page
Walk with me
Love and engage.

Walk with me
Peel your eyes
Walk with me
Sudden surprise.

Walk with me
On this earth
Walk with me
Give birth to mirth.

Walk with me
From beach to beach
Walk with me
The stars we’ll reach.

Walk with me
Where silence calls
Walk with me
To the roaring falls.

Walk with me
Without a care
Walk with me
Pleasures share.

Walk with me
Immersed in this
Walk with me
Touch and kiss

Walk with me
Lighten your load
Walk with me
On the open road

Walk with me
Caress the flow
Walk with me
Memories glow.

Walk with me
Day and night
Walk with me
Unveil your light.

Confession


You are my lodestar
On dark nights, on bright nights. 

You are my solace
In autumn and in winter.

You are my surprise
In spring and in summer.

You are my wonder
Blazing through the fog.

You are my beacon
Serenading the storm.

You are my hope,
A sky of marvels.

You are my treasure
Richer than gold.

You are my branch
Upon which I dance.

You are my water,
A sacred spring.

You are my life
Wherein I flow. 

You are my morning,
A map unfurled.

You are my evening,
Starlit, the world. 

You are my present,
A promise unwrapped.

You are my future,
Unclose your hand.

All My Thoughts

All my thoughts they swim towards thee
In a stream that blends you and I.
Over mountains, rocks, sand and scree,
All my thoughts they swim towards thee.
When I find myself steeped in tea
Or above earth flying so high,
All my thoughts they swim towards thee
In a stream that blends you and I.
