Gaze

Hours and hours
I gaze
Upon the
Wide oceanic blue.
But how
I would rather
Be feasting
On the kernel
Of you.

I Raise A Glass

I raise a glass
To the setting sun,
Sunk in splendour.
Thankful for loving,
No curtain of tears
Can truly conceal.

Easy it is to feel
That what’s to come
Will give birth
To something purer,
A revelation of sorts.

Presence

With you by my side,
All of time recedes; 
Like an ebbing sea
Sucked free of history.

With you, the road is clear –
Rivers glisten in the sun,
Peaks offer glimpses of joy,
Living is the pulsing ploy.

With you, zesty spirit,
Flowers tingle with freshness;
Touch springs in the air,
From here to everywhere.

Observation

I sit on the patio gazing at life,
transparency softens the strife –
drifting clouds, orange skies,
the music of water –
one spectacle shines forth,
a diamond like moonlight,
your unvarnished laughter.

Rest

It is good
sometimes
to do
nothing at all.

Filling my hours
along lanes
of leisure,
strolling without
any care

except to stop
now and again,
musing upon
the joy of trees

and the
unmissable
wonder of thee.

Stars

Scattering their light

So free, I take my tea

And stare for endless minutes,

Time dissolved in this

Stellar show.

 

After vexing thoughts

Plough the mind’s furrow,

Serene it is to absorb

Bright daubings in the sky.

 

If night’s canvas

Could speak:

Be still, be still –

Beauty drowns

Fears that kill.

How Good To Live

How good to gaze

And simply smile,

While the sun sinks

To rest awhile.

 

How good to dream

In night’s cavern,

While colour fills

What is barren.

 

How good to love

Where words are spun

Of lust and thrust

And clothes undone.

 

How good to walk

In dawn’s fresh guise,

Sunlight shimmers

In deep surprise.

 

How good to live

And taste the day;

Seasoned with joy,

No lies betray.
