Emotional Poetry : Cry

by Liam

As I’m washed to sleep this day

Wrapped, in wind, in waves,

Which share your whispers

My thoughts of you returning speak

The soft screech 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 true?

I begin to awaken in the waves of you

Swimming through my head

Into the dark warm sheets she fled

Images, memories I’m left

Searching for your direction.

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.

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.

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?

In Praise of Nature

Poetry: In Praise of Nature

by Liam

Alone, I walked, a drifting cloud; in blue, the sky was me.

A heart that sung a poet’s verse, with nature’s honesty.

Meander through the valley green, the brook did sprightly flow,

To a lark’s rejoice, I turned my head, to find the way to go.

That golden orb did smiling shine upon my steady tread,

The wind whisper’s mystery, left footprints in my head.

Upon a lake in turquoise, I stumble, as by chance,

Find I the world is crocus, all across my glance.

Those purple petals flutter in a sea before me spread,

Within each, a piece of gold, the stamen’s tiny head.

So with these words, I wonder, with nature’s treasured game,

About the world, I send this praise, all in God’s very name.

Sonnet: Countenance

Sonnet: Countenance

by Liam

In God’s divine design, each is with a face bestowed,

A unique countenance, like a canvas on display,

Gaze deep within the mirror, find out that you may,

Fashion new the self, create your own sure mold.

Why veil your gift divine, with artifice?

Its truth, crafted in the faces God has formed,

Each line, each curve, with purpose well adorned,

Unveil your beauty’s grace,

Shine forth with a loving face.

For in authenticity, we beautifully thrive,

A soul unmasked, its radiance unveiled,

Where honesty and grace deeply succeed,

This true reflection, you never need to hide.

Embrace the countenance that God has granted thee,

For this is truth, your truest self you’ll see.

Poetry: Legendary

by Liam

In the life of self-discovery and growth,

Where wisdom’s light doth brightly glow,

Let these ideas intertwine and show,

The soul, on a journey for all to know.

Supersede the desire of another’s embrace,

With self-appreciation, let your heart find grace.

For in valuing self, a true friend is found,

An inner flame that burns eternally, profound.

Emotion breaks as waves upon the shore,

This being is my sea but is there more?

I’ll own the tide, embrace the sand and all,

For aware of depth my self stands tall.

Be proactive, a force against troublesome thought,

Let actions guide, in battles fiercely fought,

Unveil the armor of proactive might,

To starve the seeds of worries taking flight.

The junk you eat, this clog’s the mind

A nourished soul, seeks but thought refined,

Be mindful this is God’s sanctuary divine,

Here clarity and peace they intertwine.

Insecurities, ever seeking validation’s voice,

Release their grip, make a resolute choice,

Your best life unfolds in self-expression,

Unleash the beauty within, a boundless progression.

These are ideas to intertwine and weave,

A tapestry of wisdom, a path to retreave

My self-appreciation, responsibility’s weight,

Be proactive, nourish the mind’s healthy state.

Insecurities dissolve as validation fades,

Your best life emerges, in colors cascade,

So embark on this journey, let the poem be your guide,

To a life lived authentically, with nothing to hide.

Sonnet: Intransigence

Sonnet: Intransigence

by Liam

In life’s transient dance, nothing will last,

What’s found today shall fade into the past.

What comes with joy I say, may slip away too fast,

Yet in our essence lies the truth so vast.

For who we are, eclipse the search and find,

Beyond the realms where loss and lust entwine.

Unchangeable, your essence is at peace,

Eternal flame, a spark that shall increase.

Though treasures fade and moments slip away,

Your being’s light ignites an endless ray.

In every breath, a testament to stay,

Forever present, guiding us each day.

So in the ebb of tide and flow of time

My soul shall dance with this sweet rhyme.

About Reading Poetry: 2 (5Min Read)

“Reading for pleasure” sounds like there’s a secret club called “reading for displeasure” or maybe even “reading for pain.” But let me tell you, all reading should be pleasurable. It’s like eating a mouthwatering slice of pizza or binge-watching your favourite TV show. Sure, pleasure is the main course, but there’s more to it than just satisfying your cravings.

Now, picture this: a poem is like a tricky locked safe, and the combination to crack it is hidden inside. It’s okay if you don’t understand a poem right away. Sometimes it takes more attempts than you’d like to admit. It’s like trying to solve a Rubik’s Cube with one eye closed and your brain on vacation. And guess what? Sometimes you need help figuring it out. That’s just part of the fun! Life is full of wonder and confusion, so why should poems be any different?

Here’s a pro tip: don’t just read a poem; perform some epic marginalia! It’s like adding extra toppings to your pizza or doing cartwheels while binge-watching. Scribbling notes in the margins is like swinging your arms. It’s doable, sure, but you need to include something essential, like the cherry on top of the sprinkles on your ice cream.

Here’s the best part: there’s nothing to lose when reading a poem. If you don’t understand it, no biggie. You haven’t wasted precious time or energy. There’s a whole lot to gain—a spark of inspiration, a new perspective, or simply a moment of escape from the monotony of life. It’s like finding a shiny penny on the sidewalk or stumbling upon a hidden gem at the bottom of your junk drawer.

So, when you read a poem, step into its world and let it take you on a wild adventure. It’s like hopping on a roller coaster that messes with your mind and leaves you questioning everything. If you’re lucky, that poem’s world might shake up your own and make you see things in a new light. It’s like putting on funky kaleidoscope glasses and realizing the world is groovier than you thought.

And here’s a mind-boggling thought: poetry is all about patterns and variations. Even those nonsensical, non-linear, anti-poetic poems have a method to their madness. Your brain, the little detective, starts connecting the dots and searching for meaning. It’s like playing a mental game of connect-the-dots with words that seem as unrelated as a glockenspiel, a tadpole, and justice. Your brain loves a challenge, and I’ll try its best to make sense of it all.

Here’s the bonus round: as you get better at reading poems, you’ll also become a pro at deciphering the news, devouring novels, and tackling those mind-boggling legal briefs. It’s like levelling up in the game of life. Suddenly, you’ll find yourself understanding quirky advertisements, decoding cryptic messages, and impressing your friends with your newfound literary prowess. Just don’t let it go to your head, okay?

Reading poetry isn’t just about words on a page. It’s like unlocking a secret superpower that heightens your awareness of the world. It’s like seeing hidden patterns and connections everywhere, even in things that don’t involve words. A dress, a building, a night sky—they all have intricate systems of beauty waiting to be discovered. It’s like becoming a secret agent of observation, decoding the world’s hidden messages.

And here’s a hilarious secret: the best way to read a poem is to be young, intelligent, and slightly tipsy. Yup, it’s true. But hey, if you’re not in your prime partying years anymore, reading poems in old age will ignite a burning desire to read more poems when you were young and energetic. It’s like realizing you missed the wildest party of your life but still having a blast reminiscing about it with a cup of warm tea.

Now, imagine a time in the future when all your material possessions have lost their shine and become mere obstacles cluttering your space. Yep, even that fancy gadget you bought on Black Friday. But what remains valuable through it all? Poems! They’re like cosy little rooms with minimal space but infinite treasures. Memorize a verse or two, and you have some internal bling and a handy survival skill. It’s like having a secret weapon in your back pocket or knowing how to juggle flaming torches when life gets chaotic.

The ultimate punchline: reading a good poem doesn’t give you something to blabber about. Nope, it shuts you up. It leaves you speechless, lost in its beauty and depth. But wait, there’s more! Reading a genuinely exceptional poem takes it to the next level. It prepares you for the grand silence that awaits us all—death! Yep, we went there. Deep, right?

So, grab a poem, dive into its enchanting world, and let it tickle your brain and stir your emotions. It’s a wild ride filled with laughter, confusion, and profound insights. Enjoy the journey!

About Reading Poetry; Part 1

About Reading Poetry; Part 1

By Liam

At some point in life, we’ve all faced the bewildering challenge of understanding a poem. It’s a hit-or-miss experience that can leave us scratching our heads or deeply moved. Poems only do a great job selling themselves if they have some famous person endorsing them, a catchy tune, eye-catching visuals, or if our beautiful kids wrote them. Otherwise, those jagged lines and pretentious blank spaces give off an air of seriousness that makes us hesitant to approach them. 

The poem says, “Hey, look at me from a safe distance, but don’t you dare touch!” 

But what if reading poetry is more manageable than we make it out to be? What if the real issue lies in our well-meaning but ill-suited attitudes towards reading poems?

Let’s shatter the illusion that reading poetry will transform your life into a magical fairy tale. Seriously, your life is like a rollercoaster ride, and most of the time, you’re too busy holding on for dear life to pay close attention. But poems, oh boy, demand your attention like an overenthusiastic puppy. They’re like, “Hey, look at me! I’m a poem, and I won’t let you ignore me!”

So, here’s the deal:

1. Whenever you read a poem, especially one that’s not meant to be performed with jazz hands, go ahead and read it out loud.

2. Forget about those elementary school days when they told you to keep quiet.

3. Let your vocal cords shine! Your ears will catch all sorts of juicy details that your brain would otherwise miss.

Your ears become the boss, and your brain says, “Okay, I’ll think whatever you say!”

Here’s a nifty tip: try meeting a poem on its terms, not yours. Don’t be like, “Hey, poem, let’s relate and be BFFs (Big Fat Friends)!” No, no, no. Instead, step into the world the poem creates. It’s like entering a secret clubhouse, except the personal password appreciates the art. If you’re lucky, that poem’s world will give you a fresh pair of glasses to see your world in a funky new light.

Oh, and brace yourself for the temptation to ditch a poem and move on to the next one or do something more “exciting.” It’s like a siren song, luring you away from the poetic seas. But resist, my friend! Treat it like a pesky mosquito buzzing in your ear. Don’t swat it away. Instead, acknowledge its presence and keep reading. Think of it as a mindfulness exercise for the literary soul.

If told : the “accessible” ones that hold your hand and guide you gently and the “obscure” ones that play hide-and-seek with meaning. It’s up to you how much effort you want to put in. If you stumble upon an unfamiliar word, don’t panic! Just whip out that trusty dictionary or risk being haunted by poetic nightmares.

Let’s get one thing straight: a poem cannot be tamed and paraphrased like a rebellious teenager. Oh no! Itstrue power lies in the realm of Ambiguity. It’s like a sneaky puzzle that leaves you scratching your head in delightful confusion. Ambiguity is the spice of life, my friend. Humans love pretending we know what’s happening, even though we’re just winging it.

And guess what? A poem doesn’t have a secret decoder ring hidden under its mattress. Nope, it’s not trying to play mind games with you. All those meanings you think are hidden? They’re right there, waving at you like a neon sign. But spotting the subtleties takes practice. Reading poetry is like learning the unspoken rules of an exclusive club. So, put on your fancy hat and join the poetic party!

Oh, and here’s a fun twist: separate the poet from the speaker in the poem. The poet is like a master of disguise, wearing all sorts of masks and personas. It’s like a game of hide-and-seek but with words. Refrain from falling into the trap of thinking the poet and the speaker are the same. Let the poem have its wild imagination beyond the poet’s life story.

Last but not least, be on the lookout for those sneaky moments of irony. Keep them from pulling a fast one on you! Double-check if the speaker is sarcastic or just your scepticism creeping in. Stay sharp, and don’t let irony prank you like a mischievous little imp.

So, my fellow poetry explorer, embrace the wild and whimsical world of poems. Let them tickle your brain, dance with your emotions, and ignite your imagination. Reading poetry is like diving into a fantastical realm where words rule, and curiosity reigns. Enjoy the ride,!

Poetry: Step towards God

„Let your steps follow in the shadow of your speech. Your voice a reflection of the silence in which you greet God. Bestowed with the grace of this encounter, embrace the truth of what you set out to find.“ Liam

Poetry: Step towards God

by Liam

Let my steps follow in the shadow this speech,

Each stride in rhythm to the words you preach,

For in your voice lies a reflection still,

Quietude in which we greet God’s holy will.

As we walk, let our thoughts be pure and clear,

And all actions be devoid of fear,

For with each step, we come closer to grace,

And to the truth which lies beyond this space.

Bestow me with the gift of divine sight,

Embrace I the truth, that guides throughout the night,

And let my heart be filled with endless love,

As we journey towards the heavens above.

Let my spirit soar, with the eagles flight,

Towards the love of that eternal light,

And in the end, when our journeys done,

We will find peace, in the glow with the setting Sun.

Sonnet: My Words

Sonnet: The Words

by Liam

In the shadow of your words, we find peace

A refuge from the noise of the mundane

Your voice, a balm that makes our worries cease

And in its silence, realize life is not in vain

For in this stillness, we encounter grace

A gift from God, that fills us with wonder

Whose words, help to find a holy place

Where truth and beauty call out amidst the thunder

Oh, may these words be spoken loud and clear

So all may hear the message that they bear

And in the echoes of their sweetest sphere

May hearts be moved to seek the truth, and dare

Embrace the light that shines from deep within

So let your words ignite the soul and win.

Sonnet: My Silence

Sonnet: My Silence

by Liam

In silence, I choose to love you true,

For in quietude, rejection cannot find,

Or in loneliness, I’ll love no one but you,

For no ownership, by another could bind.

Adoration from afar, is my heart’s delight,

A distance to shield from pain and fear,

With the gentle wind, I’ll kiss you tonight,

For my lips, too rough, your beauty might tear.

In dreams, I’ll hold you close, my love,

Where no end to our union we shall see,

In slumber’s sweet embrace, my dove,

Forever in my heart, you shall be.

Beloved, you shall forever endure,

In my silence, dreams, and distance pure.
