Where I Go

A place I go to
Every year
Ablaze and humming
Season to season
A riot of serenity. 

Just thinking
About it
Stirs the heart
Fires the bones
Cleanses the mind. 

What better place
For being
For drinking 
For watching
For kissing
For loving?

There is no
Traffic of clutter
Here – rather
The hushed calm
Of earth’s pleasing 
Charms. 

A place I want
To show you. 
A place awash 
In ardent colour. 

We all need these places
We all need these places.

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.

Gust

​Carried by the wind,

Rising and rising
This hot love,
Exploding into
A million pinpricks,
A riot of light.

Old notions vanish,
Confetti in the breeze
Drifting beyond reason;
While life bursts
With colour,
Multicolored tapestry
Caressed by gentleness.

All we have is now.
Embrace wonder,
Basket of gifts:
A beaker of joy
A shot of hope
A gust of mirth.
This – Glorious earth.

Through The Cracks

On the peaks
At twilight,
Silence falls
Through the cracks.

Nothing stirs
Save Nature’s cries;
Pure it is
To taste the thrill.

This ancient world
Woven with myths;
The trodden earth,
A sponge of hope.

Coming down
Free and fearless,
The message calls –
Marvels last.

Homage

What is your hair?
A river of peace
A tower of silk
A path of wonder
A stream of stars.

What are your eyes?
Orbs of delight
Jewels of joy
Windows of hope
A cradle of light.

What is your body?
A map of splendour
A text to be read
A mountain of dew
An ocean of fire.

What is your voice?
A song of laughter
A shower of pearls
An arrow of passion
A channel of love.

What is your touch?
A fount of energy
A canopy of comfort
A blaze of words
A glint of mint.

Solitude

We need those quiet spaces
Sanctuary of serenity
Haven of hope
Retreat of reverence
Just as much as we need:
Love, water, touch, kindness.

We need those quiet spaces
To reflect and ponder
Upon the great mysteries
And untold beauties
We have yet to discover,
Travellers of the unkown.

We need those quiet spaces,
Plants hungry for the sun
To grow and nourish our selves,
Shedding tired skins and cold scars;
Refreshed in the bowl of peace,
Keen to taste the fruits
Once more.

Vibrations

Standing on the shore,
Voices crashing against life,
People embraced in joy,
I stay motionless,
A silent spectator,
Hungry for beauty,
Drinking it all in.

Walking through feasts
Unfurled, vibrant mix of living,
I realise how blue is the lens;
Beyond the here and now
Lies the prospect of more.
