About Impact

Written by Liam

Impact is a force or shock in a short period of time.

Look in the mirror and say, “I CAN.”

Now watch the ripples.

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: Voices

Poetry Poem: Voices

With closed mouths

We spoke

Not to me

Not to them

It’s you who heard yourself

For the first time

Whispering

Quietly in the distance

Of your mind

This joy

This revelation

This moment

Of recognition that your voice

Was mine.

Mine, when I’m quiet

Is yours too

In this place of peace

We all speak and understand

We can all listen and know

It’s true.

Poetry Poem: Sleep

Poetry 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 sleep.

Poetry Poem: Atom

Poetry Poem: Atom

Within the atom lies an entire universe

the positivity

the negativity

the electrons

fly in waves

Or orbits of possibilities

Quantum not quantity

Holds sway

This magnificence is in me too

Be it cells, the enzymes

Hormones, blood or muscle

it’s profound,

it’s deep,

it’s within a field of energy

My heart leaps kicking heals with amazement

How our kind has come to be

This unique epiphany

Let’s also call it Joy and make me free

Free to fly.

Have you too flown to that place of peace?

That home of all, from which a call

Resonates each and every waking day

It’s in the invisible

The atom, cell or sky

We need to look

We need to laugh

We need to coagulate

Around the reality of nothing

To find it

All

Poetry Poem: Panorama

Poetry Poem: Panorama

By Liam

Your love lifts my soul, up to touch the sky

You take me to these worlds to where the spirit calls, fly

The warmth drying my rain

Joy smiles new across my pain

For in being lifted above

I left a vapor trail across heaven

Alone for you to find

For God to see

I was there

Now I’m me.

Poetry Poem: Free

Poem: Fly

By Liam

I start my meditation

Quickly though a power within my mind

Allows me to be aware.

Thence forth mindfulness includes care, gently everywhere

I am not mind

I am not body

I am not me

A child of the universal

A person of the light

A being with mighty

Perspectives to share

To initiate the good

Understand the understood

Move on forward to the edge of myself

Reach the space of spaceless individuality

This is not God

This is true Humanity

This is Free

You too

Shall see

Free

Poetry Poem: Smoke

Poetry Poem: Smoke

By Liam

These words are smoke,

which rise from the soul

The heat, the energy,

lies unseen in the thing

We take it, we turn it, we burn it

Now we feel it, the energy.

Yet we were mesmerized,

at first by its form

Be not blinded by the smoke or body

These are also, only like words, smoke

Feel your own flame

Find Love.

Poetry Poem: The Feather

Poetry Poem: The Feather

By Liam

When your feather is poised

Firm, ready to write

Let the hourglass not delay this flight

Wait not even for heaven, to reach down and inspire

Wait simply for your heart to reach up

And touch this feather of desire.

For when inspired by love

A feather will fly like the airborne dove

Fly to the heart of those misunderstood

Let your words be a quickening to life

Let your writing be a gift from this feather

Which grew for its purpose on the wing

Now let my feather sing
