Disentangle


Disentangle
all the torn
outworn
pieces
still inside you..

bruised emotion
quiet disgrace;
the untruths

within..

that buried place
where light
breaks in

and love
begins.

Deeper


Deep
within
my being..

deeper
than any sorrow
or blind
non-seeing..

I find..

the resilience
of love..

the innocence
of love.

Layers


I peel away
the layers of life,
reveal
its fading history;
the love
the loss
the mystery

remembered..

here
within
this moment’s
space

I am
surrendered.

Eternal Spiral


The
unfolding circles
of change;
breaking me down
remoulding
me..

this  eternal
spiral

of struggle
and release

turmoil
and peace

struggle
and
release.

New Days


Days rolling on
through dusk
to dawn;
through
and
through..

with
or without
me
or you..

new days
becoming

seasons
turning..

new days
becoming.

Seeds


Maybe
I have always known
the seeds of love
now fully grown..

would remind me
of all that’s lost
and tossed
aside..

in the living
of life..

and giving
away

of our truth.

Calling

I don’t care
about your Politics;

or where
you come from;
or how far
you’ve come

or who you are..

is your mind
wide open..

are you kind
in reality..

will you hear them
calling;
help him up
when he falls.

Junctures

Junctures
emerge..

the converging lines
connecting
as if
divinely
timed..

mesmerising mystery
of endings
and beginnings..

rearranging
and changing
everything.

Wounded Healer


It’s only

in the giving
of a grateful
fractured heart..

that joy will come from living,
and sorrows can depart..

for you’re
a wounded healer
whose essence
will transcend..

restoring and renewing
before this journey’s end.

Fearless Truth


Let me be..

where open
faces
cross my path..

and fearless
truth
embraces
me

with freedom’s
choice

and love’s
voice.

Awaken


Let’s change
and rearrange
the view..

raise
the veil
escape this prison;
let flow
authentic
tears..

erase;
let go..

the prism
of fear.

And Then


Pummelled
by our own resistance
the turbulence
of change
can leave us
bruised..

let go
let go
let go

let all things happen
and then..

gently flow.

Nothing to Say


I’ve nothing to say;
a hollow voice
meaningless noise
banal and absurd

words words..

Listen to the silence
quietly confess;
within this emptiness
can a child’s eye view

be renewed.
