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 Poem: The Door

Poetry Poem: The Door

Lovers don’t find love

Lovers discover joy

Lovers enable this happiness

To release inside their body

You are your own beautiful love

Hidden behind the eyes you see with

Deeply heaving the blood flow

Dancing freely in wide spaces in your mind

We are, what it is that we seek

We are, what it is that we do

We are, what it is that we already know

Be silent, for behind that door is this.

Poetry Poem: Words

Poetry Poem: Words

Raise the choice of your words, not your voices

Words are times thoughts

Words are times feelings

Seeking to rest in what we say.

What you hear is not me though

You hear yourself

Through me

In this way

These thoughts

These feelings

Awaken again anew in you.

Poetry Poem: The Wild Places

Poetry Poem: The Wild Places:

Lets go to the wild places

Those quiet corners deep inside

Hidden from the sight of many

Visible to those few who

Challenging the order of the day

Try the unusual

Step forward in their dreams to find these restless realities

Let’s go to the wild places

It’s not the wilderness we seek, but unexplored realms of depth

Here in transitory space

Manifestation will consolidate from our thoughts

How to be a better being

Creative in doing the helping deeds, the necessary task

Let’s go to the wild places

To my untapped resources

Enable the rich emotional emergence of me

Craft joy, craft health, craft insights to the responsibilities we own

It’s in the discovery that I am an adventure unto myself

That wild transforms to wisdom

That potential becomes a passion

That mystery calls to reason

Be wild, be free, be me

Poetry Poem: The Pearl

Poetry Poem: The Pearl

The dignity of this sorrow lies between

Your sadness and my distress

We had those struggles

Interludes of passion too

Before you went your way

Hair wavering, eyes blistered with tears

Anger tore up the flower garden in my heart

Leaving sorrow or was it sadness

Clinging letter by letter to those few resilient weeds

We tried again and again but our holy ground was waisted

Sorrows resignation is no place to plant love

Sadness no place to accept happiness

Captured in distress

Caught in the quietude

My reflection shattered

My soul which mattered

Reached out into the still pool

Where I found this

pearl.

Poetry Poem: Friends

Poetry Poem: Friends

If words could express the things that I miss,

friends friends friends

You fill that space in my life’s universe,

When we meet, the circles complete

Then, when young in body

Now, still young at heart We share the friendship

Till forever we part

So let’s live in this moment

Of memories shared, of laughter, of tears, of burdens bared

Raise a glass,

Raise a cheer,

Raise the life we have done

For before us are many,

the days still to come.

Poetry Poem: Returning

Poetry Poem: Returning

Should I miss you, but only for one day

Those hours lost, fallen by the way

Each one cold and lonely, for naught to speak

My thoughts though flow, from morning till the peak of dawn

Your beauty, heart and happy

Your smile, glows from deep within

You do this magic in me, find places new to win

So call I to the rising, the warmth of a new day near

To the stars which also leaving

Sing heavenly you to hear

This day new to discover the love I know so well

My partner heart again will start

Rejoicing with this bell.

Rings with your returning

Happiness calls to me

My love my heart my darling

Again, you are with me.

It’s in the peace

I hear

I catch

My-Self

In communion with you.

You are this peace

In me too.
