Years Have Passed

On the highway of life,
Years have passed.

Our bodies don’t lie,
Tangled in pleasure.

A hunger enthused,
What can you see?

The terror of the ache,
Sighs itching to break.

Time

There’s always time.
Time for togetherness.
Time for affection.
Time for living.
Time for exploration.
Time for sharing.
Time for happiness.
Time for being.
Time for wondering.
Time for loving.
Time for leaping.
Time for giving.
Time for receiving.
All this, and more, 
Before the sun sets.

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.

Undone

​Our lives passed

Ever so briefly,

Two ships 

Sailing in the night,

Where the hours 

Felt like minutes,

The weeks like days. 
Now as the sun wanes

At summer’s end,

Seasons fold

Into each other,

The cycle

Sings anew.

Gather while you can. 
What remains 

Of this love? 

A handful of ashes 

A cup of tears 

Ready to be sowed,

For hope to rise 

Again.

Lines On A Bench

It is so easy
To while away
An hour or two,
And consider
The horrors
Of being
Productive.

But what
Is more thrilling
Or
Richly enchanting
Than musing upon
This great miracle
That daily
Assaults us?

Chores clamour
And claw
Our hungry selves
– ravenous fiends –
Setting aside time
Is a way
To keep lean.

Engaged in the act,
Laughter echoing
Across the park.
The tenderness
Of love,
Stilling the dark.

Homage

Minutes, hours pass
Reverence crystallised –
Beauty lasts.

Years Later

I remember it well,
A bright summer in Poland,
The scent of wildflowers,
Lakes glinting in the sun

And your smile, oh your smile
Flashing all the while.

Years later, penning these words,
Every fibre of my body
Alert to love’s vibrant pulse.
