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.

Liam. October 2018

Poetry: What is Love?

Today

Poetry: Today

by Liam

Make what you do today

an expression of your beauty

Make what you say today

an expression of your gratitude

Take this opportunity to reach into life and love.

Tomorrow is tomorrow

Yesterday a memory

Kiss each passing cloud

Embrace the fields arms outstretched

Sing to the birds each morning free

Kneel and thank life a thousand times for today.

Be what you are, reveal how you love.

Create

Poetry: Create

by Liam

Simply being in your light has taught me to love

These poetic lines come forth fresh with your beauty

When we dance alone my breast carries the secret

As I sing aloud, you hear me and in this we become one

For as we create it’s God which participates in our union .

Search

Poetry: Search

by Liam

I searched for love.

Hearing it knock, I simply open the door

I searched for change.

Creating new my thoughts all was different

I searched for guidance.

Finding trust, I believed myself

I searched for joy.

Recognizing selflessness, I laughed

I searched for peace.

Accepting quietude, I sighed

I searched for abundance.

Recognizing distrust, had blocked it all

I searched for wealth.

Found health to be my fortune

I searched for a miracle.

Finding myself this happened

I searched for the partner of my soul.

In God knew I am One

The Chariot

“Come out of the circle of time and into the circle of love.” Rumi

Poetry: The Chariot

Liam

As time turns with us rolling through these years

We live our lives immersed in doing this and that

While the chariot of Love upon which we roll waits

The rich carpets and pillows of loves wealth

Beckon “leave the rolling and join me here in this beautiful

Boudoir of exquisiteness.”

Live with me in the circle of love

It’s already awaiting your change

Move from the endless wheel of time

Join me here on the Chariot of Love.

Finding Felicity

Poetry: Finding Felicity

by Liam

It’s when my thoughts reach back

In time to pain, to memories past

I loose the peace of now aghast

At how to get back on my track

It’s when my imagination takes me to tomorrow

Pins me to the wall of worry , wings twitching I cry

When truly we are meant to fly

Beyond insecurities which we might borrow

It’s when in the now, gratitude has gone

So the joy is taken, robbed and broken

Meanings lost, this broken heart a token

To all that which waits to bring us God

It’s in the living of these three

Be grateful for this moment as we take stock

When it’s only now that ticks, but not the clock

Of being present to the self of living true to me

Soar

Poetry: Soar

by Liam

Before Love became my shining light

My sight was dimmer than the shadowed haze of dusk

Then my gaze dissolving bit by bit

Those clouds of doubt

Creating thoughts so clear, so true, so blue

Sky is all we need

For as we fly

Love will stretch its feathers across the night

Giving us the insight to wait for dawn

Not feel forlorn

Just soar, for

Above the clouds

Awaits the more

Awaits the light.

Chemical Marriage

Poetry: Chemical Marriage

by Liam

Should my soul become visible

To you or even to me too

This substantiation of the self,

The authentic true expression

Reaches into life, alive and formative

It’s a force of love which forges the moment

Upon the anvil of your malleable personality

Thrashing out the idiosyncrasies of misunderstanding

Hammering into shape a ring of truth

Which when worn will reunite your insight

Your intention and my

Wish to unflinchingly join in the truest

A marriage of spirit

That of heaven and our supplication

Simply listen to that whisperer and nod

Yes, I will.

Religion

Poetry: Religion

by Liam

In every religion I find not only Him

I discover each new day alive this truth

This radiance of God

Speaking in a thousand wonderful ways

In a thousand colorful tongues

To each of us who pray

Who reach out in quietude, in peaceful

Contemplation with joy upon our lips

The gratitude within our hearts, the love

Vibrating across the threshold of this awareness

Speaking singing and dancing within the heart of heaven.

Palace in the Wind

Poem: Palace in the Wind

by Liam

Are my words waisted on your tired mind?

Or is this intent the spark

That flicks an idea to activate

Stimulate your reflections

The thirsty, the seekers will drink to the taste of their insights

This table of plentitude where we meet before the journey taken

Not alone but inspired by the cusp of the infinite we will go

Silent to the edge of the persona

Beyond, beyond is where we wish though

It’s in that place

This palace of the wind

We again will reunite

Not as friends or lovers

As inspiration

As insight

As intuition

Moving to fruition with the spirit.

Love’s Embrace

Poetry: Loves Embrace

by Liam

When love embraces me

It is I who sees angels soaring

Wings still wet with color

Across a silver sunrise

While all around others hear the choir

Resonate with lavish joy

Majestically my soul

Stretch’s it’s pinions

To Enfold you

To Hold you

To embrace the bursting flood

Of loves true grace we tumble homeward

Feathers flying into our magnificence

Sky blue lips vibrating with the passion of this inevitability.
