Butterfly

Poetry: Butterfly

by Liam

When she looks at you

Listen up, for those

Deep eyes speak sweet

Words of silent selflessness

Each a butterfly

Alone,

Though the color, the movement takes

My gaze to intoxication

Not my thoughts

My emotional wings take flight feelings

Lift me peacefully on the intention of the moment

Eyes gaze, the look mesmerizing

While words with wings flutter

Across my imagination singing sweet hymns of praise and gratitude

Each of us born will crawl, struggle then fly

The butterfly 🦋

The Squirrel

Poetry: The Squirrel

by Liam

With the summer fled and autumn storm comes hope

This golden leaf no longer green but flies, spins dancing in the skies

Each trunk echos to a season past tall stretch, reach out grope

To us, we see the beauty cast and fall in love with autumn eyes

From Birch and Beech each every blade now free

The leaf of morning cool with moisture now touches me

The happy swallows cheep, it’s young now gone way south to sun

While bushy tailed the squirrel free

His quirky eyes to gather nuts in secret heaps for days to come

I turn to me and gaze with wondrous brow

A million miracles all around

I know not how

I know not why

I feel a tear

I laugh and cry.

The Shrike

Poetry: The Shrike

I search the glade for a sign

but they have strayed beyond its course

their rigid limbs stroke skies divine

and headlong mine touch earth by force

The husk and cone the needle, bark

no organs hold that wood impress

such dreams as animate the lark

reminding spring to confess.

Now winter widows all but weed

and starves the cries of fiscal shrike

boots trample fragile chestnut seed

and fronds succumb to frosts hard strike

Trees gaze toward the longed-for spring

transfixed their roots in earthly bliss

tho in life’s wood snared we sing

the fire of faith it’s the love we miss.

Drink Up

Poetry: Drink Up

by Liam

That cup of yesterday has been drunk

Everything including the dregs gone

Digested,excreted and wrought

Take the goblet of now

Both hands cherishing it’s beauty

To my lips taste the sweet wine of life

Each nuance, each sense drunk with joy

Dancing with the glory of today.

Mystery of Love

Poetry: Mystery of Love

by Liam

Experience love in such a way that it frees you from connection

Words leave me like the smoke from a flame

For as the fire purifies its existence

This energy, holding the fabric of reality together

Flows again to the ocean from whence it came

That else where, is where we also go

When we fly free within loves mystery.
