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?

Desire and Love decide.

Desire and Love decide:

Written by Liam

Love is universal, cosmic and spiritual.

Desire is about wanting something physical.

Desire requires ongoing elusiveness.

It is less concerned with where it has already been than passionate about where it could still go to find you.

So often, as we settle into the comforts of love in long term relationships, this flame of desire dims, we loose the mystery through our availability.

We forget that passion is an energy which loves the unknown, the hidden, the imagination to fuel its erotic intensity.

Poem Poetry: Love the Love

Poetry Poem: Love the Love

Written by Liam

Ever considered to love love?

Take this blossom beautiful, between hands

Hold, then turn to the heart

From whence this elixir

This juice of life was born

It’s here we embrace this love of love

Warm, warm our heart let’s

Throw a blanket, fine woven across the colors of the setting sky

To hold, catch and calm

Your wild flying eyes,

It’s you

It’s me

Enraptured in a movement of passion

A moment of eternity

An eternity of how

Love loves Love

Forever

Poetry Poem: The Doll

Poetry Poem: The Doll

Written by Liam

Too long now have we simply listened

As the wind swept storm

Rattled the shutters

Stuffed the gutters with leaf with loam

Listened, yet never heard her tears

Watched, yet never saw her fears

She was rattled indeed

Wrecked from the inside out

Storm troubled

Trembled cried cowered and died

Though she never showed it

Either to you, me or who else their was to see

She swallowed whole oceans of doubt

Day after day

Waves crashed, smashed, up inside her life

Against walls built by

Her mind

To protect, to hold

Till it broke!

Swept away she was

Nothing but tears

Shaking with fears

Wet cold and lonely

Her soul a ragged doll

Caught by twigs

On a branch, in a park, in the dark

Still morning came

Warm strong that shone

In through her sight

Her dam had gone

The surprise of self recognition

The picture of her sweet self

Made her laugh

She was as she ever was

Only now empty cleaned nourished

Alone in light

Quiet too

Now she knew

She had never left

She had only just begun.

Poetry Poem: Sleep

Poetry Poem: Sleep

Written by Liam

It’s good to leave behind each day

Embrace each night with peace then say

I’m free of sadness and of grief

For a moment fall into deep sleep

Stand again on the shore of time

Dreams aflicker across a moving mind Reminded of tomorrow yet to come

The promise carried on the wing of dew

Embrace the new as if reborn

A day with all you need to be

To fill with life, with love , with all you have been born to see

Happy

Let this shine in your eyes, in your talk

I’m life, I’m love, I’m here to walk

In hand, anew again to try

To be the one,

My truely

I

Poetry Poem: Listen

Poetry Poem: Listen

Written by Liam

When I always did what others demanded!

When I always went when others called me!

When I always listened to what other told me!

I was lost

I’d forgotten to listen

To my-self

I’d forgotten to see

With my inner eye

I’d forgotten to decide

With my own thoughts

So easy to get lost

Amongst this all!

So simple to though to re-discover

Strength, hope and happiness

I simply decided for stillness

I decided for quietness

I decided to listen deeply

Listen to my own voice

Hidden, still soft and unobtrusive

Still all mine, truely mine

Listen to me answer those questions

Listen to me reply to those calls

Listen to me thinking about ideas

Now it’s done

I’m again in contact

I’m speaking, whispering with my deep

My inner self for

It’s only from here

Reaching out into my life

Abundance, joy and love

Follows patiently in these foot steps.

Poetry Poem: The Mirror

Poetry Poem: The Mirror

Written by Liam

I’ve brought to you a glass

It carries all that you see

It carries the you

It carries me too

It’s how in this very instant, now

You realize, recognize Your reflection is me

I’m the partner of soul

I’m the you, you see

Singing bird in an iris sky

Laugh with joy, tear fills thy eye

Sight shines warm to a clear new day

The love you missed this found a way

To find its seeker

To find in you

A lover that left

You feeling blue

It’s in my reflection

The mirror in hand

You gazed in deep

It’s here you found

Not what you lost

But what you were looking for.
