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?

Love Poetry: Velvet Glove

Love Poetry: Velvet Glove

By Liam

I have spoken to a rose

Whose petals red,

Scintillate

Each disguise your face

Remind me, with what grace you carry

The scent of life’s demeanor

Afloat on a bouquet of thorn ,

yet never distracted

My intent lifts you with a velvet glove

To place you on this pillow of love.

Abundance

About Abundance

by Liam

My creativity, joy and abundant life are the rich fruit which nourish me each day.

These seeds are grown & nurtured in my deep mind, then planted in the garden of today.

Good things when ready, will fall to the table like fruit. Let’s all then share this ABUNDANCE and be great-full for what feeds us, also creates us in everything and every way.

Inspirational Poetry: Contemplation

Inspirational Poetry: Contemplation

by Liam

Invite this partner to stay longer than a night

Contemplation is

A sibling who will never leave you

A friend who will ever lead you

A love who will ever need you

It’s in meeting we finally understand

How unequivocally connected we have become.

Emotional Poetry: Longing

Emotional Poetry: Longing

by Liam

Longing for someone is a wonderful pain

For beyond it lies the gain

It’s simply you and me

Touching invisibility

What we believe could be

Magic,love and truth

Is what I feel, what you see?

Is what I see,

Your feelings in me?

Intertwined in motion,

Emotionally evolving this metaphor of longing.

Spiritual Poetry: Journey to the Center of the Soul

Spiritual poetry: “journey to the center of the soul”

Liam

I too have traveled

True, wide and further

Mountains traversed, oceans crossed and deserts wondered

Only after I

immobilized my body

Literally stopped moving

Did true journey begin

This was truly amazing

Not the movement of a muscle

Nor the twitch of an eyelid

Yet, it was further away than I’d ever ventured before

I decided

To make the journey to the very deepest

The very most hidden core of myself

It was a journey, for it was not made in a day,

Took weeks, took months where I meditated quietly

Each time returning with insights

Firstly

The treasure of my past,

in its detail, in its glory

It’s pain and its healing

Thereafter things became different

I wasn’t going somewhere

I was becoming something

Merging with a field of energetic possibilities

It is a melting

It is a dissolving

It is an absorbing

Funny,

In this, never for a moment

did I lose that.

That which is intrinsically me

That which was, before my birth

That which will remain after leaving this sheath

This was my guide as I vanished

This was my keeper as I merged

This was the center of nothing

This was the core of peace

This is the journey I began

I am and forever will be

traveling.

Emotional Poetry: Loneliness

Emotional Poetry: Loneliness

by Liam

Break your step, wait

Who told you, being alone

Was a feeling of loneliness?

Have faith, for this is a misconception

Loneliness,

Is nothing more than a moment of confusion

An impression of lostness

A fleeting fantasy of isolation

We are never alone

for we always have ourselves

We simply forgot to make the acquaintance with

Myself

Indeed the voice, which has always accompanied my wandering

This inner voice belongs to a being

Rich, wise and alive

Also a guest, harbored in this body of mine

Together we are

Father and son

Together we are

Mother and daughter

Together we are

Parent and child

A life time long

Always and in all ways one

One to one together

It’s so nearby this country called happiness.

Emotional Poetry: Seagulls Cry

Emotional Poetry : Seagulls Cry

by Liam

As I go to sleep today

Wrapped, in the wind the waves,

Which blew away

My thoughts of you return

The soft throat of a seagulls cry

A moistened eye as you look, then sigh

Yes, I caught your wonder through the pain

Stillness, a touch, this felt again, like

The same quiet intensity of a kiss

On lips first brushed with passions bliss

Is this truely true,

I begin to awaken in waves of you

Swimming through my head

Into the dark warm sheets she fled .

Transformational Poetry: Lockdown

Transformational Poetry: Lockdown

by Liam

It’s not only about me

It’s about the new way, we are

What happened then in isolation

Also touched a part of me

Transforming it too

We were all affected

Although not all infected

That invisible threat drove the wedge

Driving each individual into the lockdown of quiet Isolation

The world of everything

Reduced to a universe alone

This enormously empty space

Occupied me a while, slowing down

It took time getting used to this pace

Me within the warm rooms of aloneness

It’s the silence which opens the windows

Insights inside the mind

Letting in the light

Letting me understand

Letting me reach out

Away from self to hear

The echo, of the echo

Of peace within

For we all are in this together

Together this world becomes more beautiful

Moving in unison toward the ring of our soul

Not heard, but felt by the spirit.

Emotional Poetry: Entanglement

Emotional Poetry: Entanglement

My conflict caught in the desire of now

Passionately calls to emulate

Those days before, for even then

The incoherence was

In one and all, but in me the most

Toast cheer and song

Gave way to the recognition

This time, this Zeit

Was new

Was right

To disentangle emotionality bound

In reason.
