Transformed

candle

In the embrace of words
I belong
Valued, understood
 
In the voice of acceptance
I relate
Assured, respected
 
In the vision of beauty
I am seen
Honoured, transformed

Love’s healing

kiss comfort

I shall gather you
Into the arms
Of love’s embrace

Let me ease the pain
Besieging you
With love’s pure heat

In anguish, you shall
Experience, grasp
A moment’s delight

In joyous respite
Remember, know
Love’s healing power.

Sometimes…

Forlorn desolate

Sometimes
We fail to pay attention
Fail to perceive the changes
Fail to see the ones we love
 

Sometimes
We fail to rein in
The thoughts in our heads
The images in our mind
 

Sometimes
We fail to recognize
The life we have missed
The ones we love and lost
 

It is then we notice
What we have left
The remnant of a life
Too late to regain.

Intentions

A poem that I wrote for Brett’s Future Dream Gallery…

MEANINGS AND MUSINGS

When I saw Brett’s Dream Gallery, I couldn’t resist contributing… so this is the poem ‘Intentions‘.

I close my eyes, my body sleeps and my mind drifts away….to a faraway land

Where we see perfection on our bodies, beauty in each living creature, pleasure in every gesture…

While you’re in Brett’s Future, have a wander and experience Brett’s mind… 🙂

This is home

A guest poem – ‘This is Home’ – on Eye Will Not Cry. Enjoy!

MEANINGS AND MUSINGS

Eyewillnotcry1973’s invitation was a surprise, and humbling and daunting, given how well he writes. 

Well I try, and here is the result…

This is home

Unsure of her reception
Despite an invitation
She steps across the threshold
Into her fantasy
And she waits.

Thanks again Eyewillnotcry1973 for your invitation, and a fitting image for the poem…?  🙂

It has been fun.  And to quote Eyewillnotcry1973 “your interpretation of my words, is of course yours“.

And those who do not know Eyewillnotcry1973 and his words, visit Eye Will Not Cryand you’ll be mesmerized.

Enjoy!

Water like words

Water like words

Water cascading
Like words on a page
Reminder of past hurts
Etched into my skin
Watching it bleed
Washing away.

Water cascading
Like words on a screen
Bringing renewal, healing balm
To a soul seeking
Rest now, my child
All is well.

Tortured soul

Tortured Soul

In that moment of clarity
I see the grace of God
In that moment of love
I see the Universe conspires
To bring light and hope
To a tortured soul.

A soul longing to be free
A brilliant mind wanting to take flight
A man calling out for salvation
And as he traverse this long road
Will all be put to right
At his journey’s end.
