Grace

By the light of the falls
I caught my breath, enthralled

When out of the flow there sprung
And hung a shimmering rainbow.

How moments flash with meaning.
The gifts that course like blessings.

And always the heart is leaning
Towards the source, caressing.

Isn’t…

Isn’t life beautiful when we stand back and reflect upon the beauty of it all? Isn’t life brimming with possibility when we throw away our fears? Isn’t life magical when we realise the blessings we have? Isn’t life exquisite when we raise a cup to the wonder of now? Isn’t life majestic when we dance alone or with friends? Isn’t life resplendent when we drink in the view from the top of a mountain? Isn’t life sublime when we create splendour out of chaos? Isn’t life swell when we give with unfettered joy? Isn’t life grand when we take the hand of someone we love and look at the innumerable stars? Isn’t life great? Isn’t life sweet? Isn’t life beautiful?

Enchanted

Rapt in wonder,
I hang
         Upon
Your every word.

Starlit,
         Blessed,
Modest charms
                     Ablaze.

Limpid syllables
You utter,
An ardent voice
In whose
             Whetted
Tenderness

I humbly succumb.

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.

Homage

Minutes, hours pass
Reverence crystallised –
Beauty lasts.

Cherish

I relish the countless hours
Dreaming and scheming,
Lazing and gazing,
Doing nothing
But peering outside.
Grateful for
Everyday miracles;
Like a sudden shock of birds,
Sunlight clasping the wineglass
And the gilt touch
Of memory
Melting
Life’s frozen fields.

I relish it all –
The beauty to be savoured,
The loving to be had,
The joy and pain entwined,
The stories that last.

Great wonder fills me
As I stare and compare;
Living in the moment
Aware of colour
Alert to magic
Awakened to desire
And the persistent pulse
Within and without.
Crying with supple hands,
To be kissed and cherished
In the thawing light.

Falling

Your luminous smile
The turquoise sea.
Your courteous touch
The summer breeze.

Your steadfast light
The golden trees.
Your naked laugh
The autumn fruit.

Your cat-like poise
The snow-capped peaks.
Your flighty thoughts
The winter warmth.

Your emerald kiss
The giving earth.
Your twinkling eyes
The mirth of spring.
