Rising

Cut yourself loose;

jump in..

 

die

to its embrace..

 

its hallowed

space..

 

rise

to the surface..

 

surprised

by

 

the audacity

 

of your

courage.

Changing

Endings

are beginnings..

 

beginnings

have endings..

 

what is over

falls away..

 

nothing

and no one

stays..

 

unchanged

Resilience

Bend

and sway

through

the disquiet

 

of this day..

 

unassuming

and resilient..

 

close

to the

moment..

 

like a child

at play.

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.

Touch

We’re all wounded;

we all wound..

 

torn

or tearing..

 

born

with

the healing

touch

of love..

 

we

forget..

 

and let

each other

bleed.

Silent and Still

I need

to be silent

and still;

fill my mind

with kindness..

 

reaching out

I touch all souls

 

with mine..

 

it’s my rhyme

and reason;

a neon sign..

 

on the path

to  peace.

This

Voiceless thoughts

rippling inwards 

outwards..

 

a distant

reflection;

instant healing touch

 

of so much

so much

more..

 

this

ethereal

connection..

 

this

beautiful

abyss..

 

this.
