Forever

We can only live in the moment
Forget past sorrows, dismiss ancient
Pains, look to tomorrow, smile.
Rise,  dance, kiss your lover,
Create beauty, follow the sun.
Make love, sigh,  revel in the wonder
Of it all.  Now is now is now is now.
The past is a land of closed borders
Time to follow our natural orders.
The impulse burns bright, why crouch?
Stand tall, savour the music, the world
Alive with rich possibility, spinning,
A globe of gladness waiting to be caught.
We can only live in the moment,
For death’s date is coiled like a snake.
The strike can arrive anytime, unexpected,
Expected, a sudden surprise, a lingering
Event. So live the life you want,  let your
Senses unfurl, a glorious canvas absorbing
New memories, the tenderness of touch, Secrets unlocked. Dance through the sorrow,
Unshed your baggage, travel light, walk
Onwards into a future, blossoming,
Fresh heights.

Precious

Time is so precious. Waste
It at your peril. Moments

Vanish in the blink of an eye.
Fly with the wind, love’s wings

Ring and ring. While we make
Sweet music, fragrance swells.

Bound by joyous fidelity,
Happy mingling incarnate.

Everyday Miracle

A butterfly crossed my path today,
Fragile simplicity on the loop.
An everyday miracle, some might say,
Nothing else of import occurred.
Just this moment of brilliance,
Given weight in the dancing light,
To keep terror’s sharp lance at bay.

Homage

Minutes, hours pass
Reverence crystallised –
Beauty lasts.

Sympathy

I look outside
And watch people
In the thick of life,
Feeding ravenous birds,
Alive in the moment.

Happiness spreads
Like a welcome pool.
In it I plunge,
Hungry for you.

Scraps

Even in those moments
That drift aimlessly,
Tattered scraps
Snagged by the wind,
A halo shimmers
In the eye’s corner,
Flooding the shadows
Without a care.

Love is stubborn,
Finds a way of coming,
And this is grace
Given wings that sing,
Mending time’s  tapestry;
If only to taste
Before all goes to waste.

Reflections

Light painting patterns.
Flowers on the table.
Tea in hand,
Pages turning.
The prospect of joy.
Love waiting to be caught.
You. Only you.

Dark weaving shadows.
Moonlight beckons.
Silence floats,
Leaves falling.
The turning of pain.
Words scattered by touch.
You. Only you.
