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?

Poetry: Knowledge

Poetry: Knowledge

by Liam

Take knowledge and make it your art

With this art you will know what needs ignoring

This is the art of knowing what to ignore

For what you need to know is waiting

Here, around every corner of distraction

Every question of importance is answered

By creating a peaceful mind

Adapt to switching off

Shutting out

Ignoring the babble and chatter of the

Inconsequential and profane

This is knowledge which brings understanding

The understood enables meaning

The meaning creates the value

This treasure is the you, you require knowledge to understand!

Poetry: The Music

Poetry: The Music

by Liam

Apon us music came down

Filling our soul with sounds

Great, small even fine tunes

Sprang up from the fountain

The wind began to whisper in voices

As yet unheard,

Though understood, in the heart of the heart

This beauty was unknown

Till you gazed with my eyes

Perceiving not the other

Nor the smile on those fine lips

But joy spinning us together

As stars surround the universe

As petals surround the stamen

In colorful patterns creating beauty new

Happiness too throughout this life.

Poetry: Be It

Poetry: Be It

by Liam

True, love creates its own explanations Where ever it ignites

Love is completely unambiguous as it burns away the superficiality and splith of my character

We experience

We become better

When you are but a drop which overflow’th in this ocean

Love feels the ocean again surging within that drop

A realisation love is omnipotent

Waiting patiently to embrace the wish of the beautiful being

We are, we are, we are

Can you contain love?

Can you understand love?

Can you explain love?

Why?

Be It.

Poetry: The Quill

Poetry: The Quill

by Liam

A feather flying from the wing

Became my quill to scribe this night

Of the wind in the sky

Of wide distant flight

To the moon, the stars on a cloudy day

I dip the nib to the pot

I write

The candle flickers to the shadows stooped dance

A black line scribbles as if in trance

Twists crazed in circles from left to right

To my thoughts which with the night fly free

The page now full with this poetry

How this began or how it might end

I know not how, I know not when.

The quill in my hand, to write till the end.

Poetry: What is Love? ❤️

Poetry: What is Love?

by Liam

Love moves throughout the universe from light into life

Love germinates the life giving garden of the world

Love transforms the physical to the metaphysical

Love imbues the metaphorical through the inspiration of the spiritual

Love creates further when skill is surpassed

Love embellishes the beautiful to the realm of perfection

Love enables the transmutation of emotion to the responsibly of Consciousness

Love springs from the soul of the soul of the universal

Love is eternal

Love is oceanic

Love is Love

Poetry: The Feather

Poetry: The Feather

by Liam

The wings I’m born with

Their invisibility holds my power

To soar where few birds cry

High where eagles fly

Listen, listen for what you perceive is magnificent

What you see is amazingly clear

With these pinions wide outspread

Eyes closed I glide across endless oceans

Cross snow covered peaks to meet

You hand in hand together

Where we found

What we flew for

What we discovered

Was but a heart beat from eternity

A wing stroke from infinity

The feather with which this love song is written.

Poetry: The Pilgrimage

Poetry: The Pilgrimage

by Liam

When we walk, as pilgrims along the road of love

I wear my cloak of gratitude

My sandals throw up dust from the past

Selfishness dissipates

Pain becomes a liberation

Images of where I’ve been and done

Each step, each day

Bringing me closer to God

This appreciation strengthens the substance

Of my soul

Filling every nook and cranny of my life

Bringing me back to where we all began

Over there, on the other side

Towards which I’m again marching

A pilgrimage, to this place called me.
