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 Inner Child

Poetry Poem: The Inner Child

Take off on a journey, to the center of the soul

Awaken the hidden, that only I do know.

Its in a special place

The home of which is true,

To find the I, the soul

The beginning of me too.

The journey is a strange one

To simply close my eyes

My body is the quiet place

It’s the mind which flies.

It’s carried on the energy

Waves deep in my brain

From alpha down to delta

Its here which is profound

Memories all inclusive,

yes each and every one

The sum of all my moments

The struggle and the fun.

The child which in me living

With ache and fear and still

Waits to be seen again

in love, in care fulfilled.

Embracing love unites again

( speak out loud)

I am enough

I am complete

I am the one

This return to the beginning of the past

The idiosyncrasy of now at last

Poem Poetry: Whispers

Poem Poetry: Whispers

Who whispers deep to my thoughts in sleep?

In day time also I often hear

A voice, it’s soft, it’s clear

Tells tales of truth and wonder

This quiet one, this voice of mine

This true resounding timbre

Is me myself, no other here would flounder

The subconscious mind speaks to me too

Helps to answer the confusion

Find answers to my predicaments

Intuitively recognizes my situations

Whispers words which I hear

I respectfully listen to them, smile

For these are most powerful messages

Truly authentic me which understand

To act upon

Today

Poetry Poem: I Am Sorry

Poem: I Am Sorry

I’ve made myself to be a fool

Again and yet again

Contained within this me the man

Who cares though all the same.

Those foolish words,

A stupid tone which cut, slashed and hurt

They came from one that once was pained

By that same deep down hurt

I now gnaw, upon myself

Upon my self-esteem.

Shamed by those bad deeds done

Shamed by those words that stun

Time is ready, now to redeem

That foolish, that selfish painted face

Who really is this reflection

Staring in my place

A thousand times we’ve met before

Though I never felt the need

The realization of how deep I’ve hurt

Through foolish thoughtless deeds

Now in mindful care filled free

It’s sharing giving being true to me

I ask, I pray to be forgiven

To be redeemed for my weakness

From those hurting words

That I caused you to worry.

“I am so sorry.”

Poetry Poem: The old Mariner

Poetry Poem: The old 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 children who listening see

Those days far flung

Far deep in me

The wave the wind the dark blue sea.

Poetry Poem: Burn

Poetry Poem: Burn

„Being a candle is not lite,

Before giving light one must burn!“ Rumi

Being is my light

The candle burning through this life

Bringing comfort, bringing enlightenment

Orientate on the direction of these insights

Feelings, sky high flying whisks of inspiration

Be wide open and free

Let the moment not choke this expanse of me

We are magnificent

We are free

We call the stars to congregate, consolidate

Shall I then become

Unaccustomed to conditions, preconceptions, ideologies ?

„Being a candle is not lite,

Before giving light one must burn!“ Rumi

Burn, yes incinerate these preconceptions of self

Liberate my perception, burn, then claim

My insignificance, my intrinsic right to liberation

My universality too.

Be true

Be me

Be oceanic

Be free

BURN

Poetry Poems: Language of a Kiss

Poetry Poems: Language of a Kiss

The languages we speak

The many tongues from many colors

May be foreign

May be strange

May be incomprehensible

When we really communicate

It’s the soul which weaves the magic

These feelings don’t lie

They personify the truth

The living being in you is mesmerized

For this recognition is immense, powerful real

Speaks a thousand languages and more

Communicates in energetic waves

We perceive sparking from these eyes

Dancing pirouette with butterflies

The strangest thing is not your color, language or creed

It’s my need

To communicate with my lips

The reality of what’s happening

With this one

Kiss
