Spring Cycle

Curtain of water
Nourisher of verdant lands
Across centuries

Across centuries
Every stone telling a tale
Hardened endurance

Hardened endurance
Spelling shoots of renewal
Unceasing release.

Notes

The notes that we sent
Written from the heart
Furnished with concern
Seasoned into art.

Though you travelled far
I held to the mast
Reaching for a sign
To lighten the past.

Many are the days
Where darkness has sprung
Yet light finds a way
Loosening the tongue.

Reading between lines
Pictures take shape
Layered in colour
Old pages escape.

Memories burn bright
Spelling a new world
Inscribed in the chant
Oh open unfurled.

Lying face to face
A whisper of words
The book comes alive
Daylight thrills the birds.

Shall We?

Shall we love each other as long as we live?
Shall we repent and always forgive?
Shall we laugh and cry as minutes fly?
Shall we never say goodbye?
Shall we look into one another’s eyes?
Shall we hug the daily surprise?
Shall we speak words soft and sweet?
Shall we welcome the sacred treat?
Shall we meditate upon all the beauty?
Shall we hold the flame with duty?
Shall we kiss away the sorrows?
Shall we travel all the morrows?
Shall we sit in the morning sun?
Shall we seize and keep it fun?
Shall we praise what’s to come?
Shall we listen to the calming hum?
Shall we chime in the rhyming hours?
Shall we sing as fondness flowers?
Shall we drink from the cup of mirth?
Shall we give joy on this earth?
Shall we reside in desire?
Shall we build a lasting fire?

Daffodils

Flowers of brightness

Radiating steadfast grace –

What charm, what charm.

Valentine

Happy valentine’s
All you lovers and ravers
Saints and sinners
Dancers and chancers
Seekers and suckers
Possessed and dispossessed
Pristine and threadbare
Sane and insane
Tangled in the mundane
Lifted to a lighted plane.

Happy valentine’s
Love-blessed
Sun-kissed
Moonstruck
Earthbound
Run aground
Spring flecked.
Happy valentine’s
Lovelorn
Lovetorn
Love-worn
Safe as snails
In the grassy bourne.

Happy valentine’s
Bleed the “cri de coeur”
Bridging the blur
A thread of love
Unwinding desire.
Happy valentine’s
Time eats everything up
Get it while you live
Hug it in springtime
In summertime
And every other time
On hot nights
On cold nights
Feel it
See it
Hold it
Inhale
Fragrance unbound.

Love Cycle

Drinking deep
Sorrow transforms into joy
A sudden surprise

A sudden surprise
Hearing beautiful words
Coming from your lips

Coming from your lips
Enduring mysteries
Flooding love’s landscape.

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.
