“New Millennium Poetry”

This writing is filled with one overwhelming and passionate endeavor. That being to express the invisible world of our humanity.

Everything in our tech world is described down to the smallest detail. When it comes to the sensitive and invisible world of our soul, of our feelings and our spiritual intentions, so many like myself are striving towards a deeper more profound understanding of life, this expresses the endeavour of my work.

When reading the content of my books “New Millennium Poetry Volume 1-3”, they’re divided into categories, which generally

describe our human condition. For example, love, death, birth, inspiration, spirituality, nature, emotional poetry, and so on. Within these categories, you find a colourful spectrum of poems, each individual and authentic.
When reading a poem, the idea is that the thoughts that they represent, the ideas and the feelings that are embedded within them and the imagery are not unique. They belong to the ground of our common human condition . Existent within each one of us, where we can discover and rediscover ourselves in new, dynamic, and more profound ways.

So, with these ideas, I present poetry, which has been written for a new paradigm of human consciousness, that of our emergent ‘soul awareness’, or ‘soul consciousness’.

Millions of people across different nations, languages, religions, and cultures are emerging from materialism and recognizing that life is more than just what we have, the joy and the love are about discovering who we are.

This is an awakening, a revelation so simple yet profound that it heeds our full attention, as the consequences for everything are manifold.
When it’s no longer about having and economies are no longer defined alone by growth, the implicit meaning of how societies work and within those societies how we relate to one another becomes a new emergent principle in defining life. Life is precious, valuable, and short, and an experience with which and in which every living being has the right to the fullness and abundance that we can all share on the planet.

The Ancient Mariner

Poetry Poem: The Ancient Mariner

Poetry Poem: The Ancient Mariner

To the wind and the waves

With the mast in the sky

Sails pulled taught and the seagulls cry

My home is the sea the storm and the blue

White clouds flying through the rigging too

The crack of sail and the cold flung spray

It’s the wide horizon on a windy day

Which calls the shanty to my weathered lips

Of whales and maids of pirate ships

Of tea at the hearth and a hot clean bath

The trick is over the passage past

The cargo stowed like my memories too

In a locked treasure chest

On my arm tattoo

To my dreams I’ll fly in the night to come

Where again I’ll journey the me so young

Across oceans and seas where I had the life

Traders rum and the whetted knife

I’ve done the turn

I’ve lived the life

I’ve carried the burden

I’ve had the strife

Now it’s time for the hot cupa tea

It’s my children’s children who listening see

Those days far flung

Far deep in me

The wave the wind the dark blue sea.

Prison

Poetry: Prison

by Liam

When it’s the deep distant chalice

You are reaching for

Take your hammer to the dungeon wall, free thy self

Grabbing the keys and run

Bolt, as if you are being born into the exuberance of color

It’s urgent, it’s now, it’s imperative

“For time is not the ticking of the clock,

It’s the writing on the wall.” It echoes

Remind yourself of this!

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 Pearl

Poetry: The Pearl

by Liam

In these myriad worlds

life’s journey is for each unique

The homeless droplet in a cloudless night

Returns, as the petals transparent pearl

Opening it’s chest, the souls winged flight

Sings with nightingales

All round the sickle moon

A reminder, we move to our fullest, we rise, we fall, we ascend

Again, again growth begins

From our earth we create new gold

From the bitter berry we form sweet lavenders blush

Why dance we though forlorn?

Around us all the glory of acceptation

For the seed lay brown, lay fallow, lay long

Accept the sun for these are more than rays

This is your light awakening on the bud

Become the comeliness

Become the rightful owner

of that which was once in night

Turns to pearl

Turns to right

Turns to light.

Resonation

Poetry: Resonation

by Liam

There is a quiet voice

Which when I listen

I hear not sound

I hear not voices nor music

To be heard is only the deep beyond…Whispering

For now I have become,

That for which we were listening

We are in the ringing

Flowing with its

Resonation

From whence we came

To which we return

It’s really now

This truly matters

For we feel it in the love

Of a love from the loved.

Reflections

Poetry: Reflections

by Liam

I thought that I was lost

I too, felt alone and cold

I gather tears wet and worrisome

Without trying to recollect or recognize

The pool only reflects when it’s perfectly still

In peaceful quietude

I see myself and in this recover the light

I’ve always been shining

Knowing to find the way again

I will move home towards the moment

We mortals are born to rediscover

Peacefully within our reflections.

Where did we come from?

Poetry: Where did we come from?

by Liam

No, it’s not often we lie wrapped in one another

Hearts beating fast & fantastic flashes lighting up our eyes

We breath low slow gulps of reality,

You return, I retrieve my individuality

From out there amongst the planets

We flew high we come back deep

Looking bewildered

The beauty of the moment pulls back like tide across the heaving ocean

Wavelets of love light spring glittering silver

Lighting this halo of momentary magic around your face

My body waits now pearled in beads

My mind though, a float, a-sail on that distant sea

Calls Athena to take us back,

Reunite us in the passion from whence we came

That place is barren now without this love

Without this line of letters

To capture it, warm and gentle with thy hand

It’s not often we lie spread eagled

Pinned to life by Cupid’s arrows

Crying, not from pain but from the joy of feeling

Overwhelmed that this could go so deep, so far

So excruciatingly

close to nirvana

These are those moments

Moments which define life, as this moves in me

As this moves with you too

We return

Yet we arrive

with something new

To keep close, to keep clear , to keep safe.

The Captain

Poem: The Captain

Upon the bridge he took his stand.

The captains look a journey planned.

To distant star, it’s light still dim.

Blazing gold the radiant rim.

Of a setting sun,

against a rising tide.

Moon was full the seagull cried.

The urchin curled within its shell.

A shooting star,

to the ringing bell.

Horizon cut the dark in two!

In ocean deep

We are the few to leave….

the wave,

the wet,

the blue.

Fly, through the heavens on a stary night.

Sails filled with moon milky light,

On sparkling spume.

The firmament we’ll trawl.

Constellations be the ports of call.

Pieces, Sagittarius, Andromeda too.

To visit you wonder, the question who?

Let it be spoken

Let it be said

Those lonely souls, while you sleep in bed.

Received us well,

With both laughter & joy.

We traded our memories, dreams, thoughts and ideas.

We threw over board the worry and fears.

To sunsets new rising,

A waking new day.

I’d passaged the cosmos.

I’d found a new way.

Of grabbing the moment,

Of touching the pulse.

Of living the fullest.

Of being my most.

Seeker

Poetry: The Seeker

by Liam

Are you too a seeker?

Then leave the stories,

Forget the books, the distant stars and wise old men

Just close your eyes but open your sight

Eyes alone will not crack those mysteries

Stare rather in wonder and joy

Deep into the vast universe of yourself

That mystery, those answers

Wait in patience

Wait in quietude

Wait in peace

So listen, not with ears or to words

Listen for the heart beat of the secret

Feel how love finds love

This will lift sight to insight

The reflection to recognition

The awareness to awakening

In You, you find yourself anew.

Storm

Poetry: Storm

by Liam

The moment we met, storm shook my sea

Wild into a roaring ocean

“Hark, hark”, gull’s cry

The secret’s uncovered in my sadness

Wisdom flashes out with thunders madness

Illuminates the dark, the spark ignites

In that quiet moment of after shock,

Trembling on the threshold of myself

Feet awash in froth blown free

A pearl pure and perfect

Arose in me

Arose I see

A dream which I had coming.

Power

Poetry: Power

by Liam

Listen up for within the hold

Of who you are

The vessel in which you journey

Is the very force

The power and nature to be who

To be true to the journey

Seek that direction for the power in the hold

Is revealed in the letting go.
