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?

Poetry: Sleep

Poem: Sleep

By Liam

Let silence be the Art of your participation

In the quiet

In the peace

In this moment

It’s no longer about me

About you or anyone

It’s simply the vastness

Which moving up

From within washes

Away apprehension

Refreshing the memories

The life of deep expanse

Before descending into

This humanity, this body

This life of here and there

Let silence be the Art of my participation

For this moment of now

Is the light which will glow

After I return to release

After I arrive, there from whence I came.

Poetry: Listen too

Poetry: Listen too

by Liam

First go find yourself

Before you will find me

What was sought in the books

What was looked for in the stars

These teachings are answers too

The meaning though is another

Whispers which come quiet and quick

When I listen to my soul

This light illuminates what the heart has understood

Take this unique story, it’s yours, it’s mine too

Creating a myth of who we are

Creating the joy of who we’ve become.

Poetry: Mingle

Poetry: Mingle

by Liam

We mingle amongst one another

As air mingles with earth,

Water too absorbs

This fluidity mixing

Invisible, it flows between the elements

Enriching

Enhancing

Enabling

Us

With the miracle of life abundant.

Love mingles too between our elements of body, soul and spirit

Enriching

Enhancing

Enabling

Us immersed in being

To ignite, insight, inspiration

The situation of our daily dues improves

Lets intimately mingle

Lives with Love with Life.

Poetry: Gratitude

Poetry: Gratitude

by Liam

Gratitude, thankfulness, appreciation

What do I have without these friends?

Naught, nothing , zero, zilch

This feeling, the attitude of acknowledgment

Can only be a benefit

The benediction of life received

The Godsend of all I have and will still do

Lifting the mundane, creating appreciation and enabling love to surface

Understanding that one moment of appreciation

Opens the lock on a cold heart

Gratitude becomes the code to contentment, contemplation

Thanks, the acknowledgment of my expectation fulfilled

Gratitude truly is life rejoicing with myself.

Poetry : Love in Love

Poetry: Love in Love

by Liam

Love in love with loves own face

To be embraced with that which creates a place

To reflect upon the smile it sees, enjoys

The question of who, these infinitesimal reflections

Remind me of

It’s you, but in me too this momentary

Madness of mirrors, spinning light

Weaving thoughts, with emotions of whose love loves love

What matters though is that we feel

In the embrace

The passion, the chalice our lips create

We become universal

We dissolve in a drop

We emerge again gazing into the mirror

Wondering where we have been

Knowing however how powerful we feel.
