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?

Touch

Poem: Touch

by Liam

As we first touch

It turns out, the thoughts

Your mindfulness is an embrace

My hands run through airy space

Your invisibility fills me with a caress

Yet lips I yearn to know address

The fascination of these features fine

The curve, the flow of beauty around your cheek

Hips I seek to understand

A cascade in gold tumbles across this sky

The blue in heaven

Sparkles from within your inner eye

I know you not or why

Yet, you have entered my blood

Melting fresh as a mountain stream

This moment of recognition

Is meant to define me too

This eternity of who

This infinity of you.

Rise

Poetry: Rise

by Liam

My friend, my neighbor this world will absorb all of who you are

The nights, lights

The very vibration of the media will neutralize your sensitivity

Why would you wish to burden your soul?

Rather rise, rise above the plane of the mundane

There is a field, feel the difference

Let’s meet, smile and laughter

It’s here for those who search the peaceful

Find the plentiful lightness of being true

Become the vision of who is really you.

A Grain of Sand

Poem: A Grain of Sand

by Liam

With determined chin I fix my gaze & march forward to meet this day.

My site is set, the magnitude, the entire grasp of which has freed my mind.

So climb until you reach the pinnacle of your space.

Stand and bare your chest, arms outstretched to the rising sun.

Speak in tongues,

of times to come, of things you’ve seen, of deeds undone.

Let’s take this moment,

it’s potential captured in a grain of sand.

Upon the pinnacle where I stand.

Throw it out for the world to grab with catching hand.

Will we comprehend the magnificence of Who we are ?

Will we recognize the true magnitude of the good?

We are not captives in this universal world of stars and planets, of meteorites and cosmic dark holes.

We are its creators !

Emergent from this shining dust.

We have transmutated from that hot cosmic flash and towards its source we will return in the course of living time.

To find the source, to find the seed, to find the meaning this life gives to me.

Yet we are many and with this more,

we should,

we could unite,

with one gaze with one vivid insight .

Transform or even create a future good and fair and strong.

A place for joy and love and care, eradicate the wrong.

Upon the pinnacle You stand alone,

In rays of light You meet the future home.

Arms outstretched to left to right,

Reaching those who’ve made the moment too.

The time is right, let the vision of the future call to all.

Unite!

When I Wait

Poetry: When I Wait

by Liam

When I wait

The dawn will turn to day

Suspicion will go away

You, will be here to stay

When I wait

The rose will share it’s sent

The snow will begin to melt

You, will feel what I have felt

When I wait

Your moments they will pass

So too memories of the past

You, will simply loose your mask

When I wait

The sails will fill the sea

All time goes still in me

You, will feel truth and see

When I wait

Your silence will awake

Your soul will in you shake

Your love will in me take

Us to a bright new day.

The Candle

Poem: The Candle

by Liam

At times I’m deep and dreary

I’ve also known despair

A shadow lives around the corner underneath the stairs

Those fingers curling, surge and grab

Taking laughter from all things

That’s how my freedom, lost its wings.

But one things true, I found in me

We’re not alone, not even in the dark

For beating deep inside, a candle is my heart

It’s towards this candle sometimes,

With shuffling heavy tread

I search the dark in this lost night before I go to bed

It’s all I have to search for

A tiny flame of hope

Imbued with light and grown within that place to which I grope

Sneaking around the corner,

The morning wakes and I

Rub my eyes, stretch my arms for today I’ll learn to fly

With it, find I meaning

Lonely though I may be

It’s from that candle in the dark but I will set me free.

What is NMPoetry?

What is NMP?

“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.

Wisdom vs Intelligence

Wisdom vs Intelligence

Often intelligence can lead to quarrel while wisdom will lead to a settlement.

Intelligence is the power of planing while wisdom is the synergy which understands the plan.

Intelligence is an energy which is kinetic while wisdom comforts and creates a potential .

Intelligence seeks knowledge which is exhausting while wisdom purses truth and inspires.

Our Meaning our Value

Poetry: Our Meaning our Value

by Liam

“Value comes with thought, Meaning comes with love.” Liam

Your intrinsic value, mine too

Where with, do we evaluate this our meaning?

Our very thoughts

Both yours and mine

Define this the measure of our meaning

That in a quiet moment of expectance

We recognize the value in the reflection of our thoughts

Our meaning a evaluation of our love.

The Child

A Child

Again I take thee by the hand

In silence walk the lonely strand

Gently ruffles the breeze you sweet

The ripples they tickle my toes & feet

Our gaze is captured in the morning hue

I feel a movement inside you

Inside you shines a growing name

A child begins, like the burning flame

Of love we found on a star lit night

The moon shone high, the dew was light

We kissed and red your lips spoke soft

Of who and where and when and off

I listened deep, I heard you sing

I saw a star, a shining ring

Of light it flashed across that night

To light our flame

To give the name

To show that heaven unites

Again & again & again

This universal moment true

The magic of just me and you and who.

Infection

Poetry: Infectious

by Liam

The memory of joy

Finds me then, when

I forget to remember pain

So often caught in turmoil

Weight seems all this heart can gain

My feet tangled in doubt

Capture me along my own disorderly route

Yet!

You who calls to dance and spin

These sacred ways when joy begins

To smile, to love

To lift the dreary mask of fear

My creators intension is love to all

I cry, yet this is a greater, a mightier call

To lift me, to lift us all

Dance, untangle the knotted feet

Free my soul, make this fine moment of complete

For a disease called love

Comes upon us from above

Contagious to everyone who loosens their own inhibitions

Be infected, be in Love.
