Manifesto, New Millennium Poetry of

Manifesto: Liam

As a creative writer, a poet and author, I feel my readers require a clear understanding and insight into my intentions, motives.

New Millennium Poetry, volumes 1-3 is a Magnus Opus of writing which springs from the idea that with this new millennium, across a broad spectrum of the worlds population, an awakening of consciousness is occurring.

A paradigm change from egocentric materialism to a new paradigm of soul awareness.

Expressing itself in social awareness, responsibility and an awakening to the spiritual , invisible reality of all aspects, of all life on earth.

This invisible world has been for thousands of years the genré of religion. Different religions, different cultures, different representations of one common invisible spiritual reality.

“New Millennium Poetry “, is a collection of poems covering aspects of our human condition. Written irrespective of color, race or creed.

The common ground being that most poems explore in simple expressive ways, questions which are common to us all, seeking answers, common to us all.

Poetry is an interesting way to respond to soliloquies concerning one’s personal quest to understand life.

The truth is, a poem will only awake within the thinking of its reader if the content, how ever unconscious, is already present. When a poem resonates with its reader, the readers intuitive response, expresses what is ready to become conscious. To greater and lesser degrees an audience of readers will intuitively respond to the content of these poems in their search and need to resolving meaning.

Poem Poetry: Ancient Africa

Poem: Ancient Africa

The heart of ancient Africa

Where wild the sea does foam

The plains the dust the thorny scrub

My soul it here does roam.

The breakers grind the ragged rocks

The shore line washed in salt

Of mountain far

Of high bright star

Of raging beast

Of insect cheeps

My soul this is its home

The drum of ancient warrior cries

Of spear the shield of hide

Of stamping feet of arms thrown high

It’s war that’s greets the long past eye.

My soul of this has known

The sun of a new day dawning

The moon of the night time done

The future star to hold my heart

The place I’ll never have to part

My soul, too this will grow

Africa is my calling

Africa is my past

Africa is my souls delight

Africa i call till last.

Poem: What is Love?

Loves joy is the wild laughter we together found.

Loves magic is the glue holds together when unbound.

Loves being is the silent power within all life.

Loves integrity is the truth which holds beyond the strife.

Loves presence is the quiet whisper  when alone.

Loves secret is the truth we share to build a home.

Loves home is the heartbeat which creates the ground.

Loves ground a fertile place these seeds are found.

Loves seeds we share throughout the day.

With everyone in every way.

Poetry: What is Love?

The Travelers

Poetry: Travelers

by Liam

Both you and I are traveling

Let’s Leave our insignificance

As quickly sets this life’s light

Quietly comes the endless night

Today, is such a moment of magnificence

Let’s move into the energy of Love

Fear, pain and desperation

Will fail, in our concentration

As Love creates a flying dove

This beauty is one that lasts

For within it are the stars

Reflecting the fragrance

of carnations

Let’s go where no shadows cast

Love follows light for its substance

Is a manifestation of

this truth

Is a revelation of trust

It’s the universe of inter dimensional individuality

Let’s both now look inside

Listening to that, which the other has to say

Here we find reality, not the other way.

The Melody of Melting

Poetry: The Melody of Melting

Liam

With these eyes we greet, we gaze

The flush of morning color high

The rush of early birds which fly

The dew of cobweb in the haze

The new day, gifts for all to take

A nimble squeak, the rustling shuffle

A hedgehog hides with its prickly scuffle

I grasp too, with words create

This is life we here uncover

Within this breath I now have taken

Evolve the thoughts how we awaken

Fill with Love each day new to discover.

So a life flies from birth to gone

So much wrong, so much strife

How very many get lost in life ?

Grasp, the way where you’ve come from.

“Feel the self glide free within

From the frozen let the melting begin.”

Equanimity

#Poem: Equanimity

While walking the rim of a moon swept sea.

Arm in arm with a thought called me.

We chatted we talked we pondered on high.

About the meaning of being, of seeing, of I.

The roar of surf the sweep of tide.

In the blood red pulse a seagull cried.

In this screech, shone the moon filled sea.

The moment deep, the you in me.

The I who we were before the call.

United now in a flash of sight.

My paradigm absorbed in new found light.

Inspired insight happens within you too.

A way to see, a way to feel, a way to join equanimity.

Insight

Poetry: Insights

by Liam

You, who have appeared here before

Know, your courage is greater than you believe

To overcome this limitation

Your strength is more than ever imagined

Initiate the very future with these insights

Your intelligence is deeper than these here thoughts

Transform all past pain to understanding insight and light

Share, revealing beauty twice greater than ever imagined

Born from this universe

Made from its constituent elements

Imbued with the grace of Love

Lift joyful and laugh for

Tomorrow is another day of beauty

The moment, the miracle of how life happens.

Butterfly

Poetry: Butterfly

by Liam

When she looks at you

Listen up, for those

Deep eyes speak sweet

Words of silent selflessness

Each a butterfly

Alone,

Though the color, the movement takes

My gaze to intoxication

Not my thoughts

My emotional wings take flight feelings

Lift me peacefully on the intention of the moment

Eyes gaze, the look mesmerizing

While words with wings flutter

Across my imagination singing sweet hymns of praise and gratitude

Each of us born will crawl, struggle then fly

The butterfly 🦋

The Squirrel

Poetry: The Squirrel

by Liam

With the summer fled and autumn storm comes hope

This golden leaf no longer green but flies, spins dancing in the skies

Each trunk echos to a season past tall stretch, reach out grope

To us, we see the beauty cast and fall in love with autumn eyes

From Birch and Beech each every blade now free

The leaf of morning cool with moisture now touches me

The happy swallows cheep, it’s young now gone way south to sun

While bushy tailed the squirrel free

His quirky eyes to gather nuts in secret heaps for days to come

I turn to me and gaze with wondrous brow

A million miracles all around

I know not how

I know not why

I feel a tear

I laugh and cry.

The Shrike

Poetry: The Shrike

I search the glade for a sign

but they have strayed beyond its course

their rigid limbs stroke skies divine

and headlong mine touch earth by force

The husk and cone the needle, bark

no organs hold that wood impress

such dreams as animate the lark

reminding spring to confess.

Now winter widows all but weed

and starves the cries of fiscal shrike

boots trample fragile chestnut seed

and fronds succumb to frosts hard strike

Trees gaze toward the longed-for spring

transfixed their roots in earthly bliss

tho in life’s wood snared we sing

the fire of faith it’s the love we miss.

Drink Up

Poetry: Drink Up

by Liam

That cup of yesterday has been drunk

Everything including the dregs gone

Digested,excreted and wrought

Take the goblet of now

Both hands cherishing it’s beauty

To my lips taste the sweet wine of life

Each nuance, each sense drunk with joy

Dancing with the glory of today.

Mystery of Love

Poetry: Mystery of Love

by Liam

Experience love in such a way that it frees you from connection

Words leave me like the smoke from a flame

For as the fire purifies its existence

This energy, holding the fabric of reality together

Flows again to the ocean from whence it came

That else where, is where we also go

When we fly free within loves mystery.

Articulate

Poetry: Articulate

by Liam

You, shine too you know

Your light an effervescent expression

With which you greet the morning

With which you part from the setting sight

Of another day dancing

Your magnificence speaks, alights from the soul singing

As a quiet articulation leaves your face

In flight, this dove carries you to sleep

Knowing tomorrow’s light waits patiently beyond the night

In tune, with the Music of your heaven.
