The Pearl

Poetry: The Pearl

by Liam

In these myriad worlds

life’s journey is for each unique

The homeless droplet in a cloudless night

Returns, as the petals transparent pearl

Opening it’s chest, the souls winged flight

Sings with nightingales

All round the sickle moon

A reminder, we move to our fullest, we rise, we fall, we ascend

Again, again growth begins

From our earth we create new gold

From the bitter berry we form sweet lavenders blush

Why dance we though forlorn?

Around us all the glory of acceptation

For the seed lay brown, lay fallow, lay long

Accept the sun for these are more than rays

This is your light awakening on the bud

Become the comeliness

Become the rightful owner

of that which was once in night

Turns to pearl

Turns to right

Turns to light.

Resonation

Poetry: Resonation

by Liam

There is a quiet voice

Which when I listen

I hear not sound

I hear not voices nor music

To be heard is only the deep beyond…Whispering

For now I have become,

That for which we were listening

We are in the ringing

Flowing with its

Resonation

From whence we came

To which we return

It’s really now

This truly matters

For we feel it in the love

Of a love from the loved.

Reflections

Poetry: Reflections

by Liam

I thought that I was lost

I too, felt alone and cold

I gather tears wet and worrisome

Without trying to recollect or recognize

The pool only reflects when it’s perfectly still

In peaceful quietude

I see myself and in this recover the light

I’ve always been shining

Knowing to find the way again

I will move home towards the moment

We mortals are born to rediscover

Peacefully within our reflections.

Where did we come from?

Poetry: Where did we come from?

by Liam

No, it’s not often we lie wrapped in one another

Hearts beating fast & fantastic flashes lighting up our eyes

We breath low slow gulps of reality,

You return, I retrieve my individuality

From out there amongst the planets

We flew high we come back deep

Looking bewildered

The beauty of the moment pulls back like tide across the heaving ocean

Wavelets of love light spring glittering silver

Lighting this halo of momentary magic around your face

My body waits now pearled in beads

My mind though, a float, a-sail on that distant sea

Calls Athena to take us back,

Reunite us in the passion from whence we came

That place is barren now without this love

Without this line of letters

To capture it, warm and gentle with thy hand

It’s not often we lie spread eagled

Pinned to life by Cupid’s arrows

Crying, not from pain but from the joy of feeling

Overwhelmed that this could go so deep, so far

So excruciatingly

close to nirvana

These are those moments

Moments which define life, as this moves in me

As this moves with you too

We return

Yet we arrive

with something new

To keep close, to keep clear , to keep safe.

The Captain

Poem: The Captain

Upon the bridge he took his stand.

The captains look a journey planned.

To distant star, it’s light still dim.

Blazing gold the radiant rim.

Of a setting sun,

against a rising tide.

Moon was full the seagull cried.

The urchin curled within its shell.

A shooting star,

to the ringing bell.

Horizon cut the dark in two!

In ocean deep

We are the few to leave….

the wave,

the wet,

the blue.

Fly, through the heavens on a stary night.

Sails filled with moon milky light,

On sparkling spume.

The firmament we’ll trawl.

Constellations be the ports of call.

Pieces, Sagittarius, Andromeda too.

To visit you wonder, the question who?

Let it be spoken

Let it be said

Those lonely souls, while you sleep in bed.

Received us well,

With both laughter & joy.

We traded our memories, dreams, thoughts and ideas.

We threw over board the worry and fears.

To sunsets new rising,

A waking new day.

I’d passaged the cosmos.

I’d found a new way.

Of grabbing the moment,

Of touching the pulse.

Of living the fullest.

Of being my most.

Seeker

Poetry: The Seeker

by Liam

Are you too a seeker?

Then leave the stories,

Forget the books, the distant stars and wise old men

Just close your eyes but open your sight

Eyes alone will not crack those mysteries

Stare rather in wonder and joy

Deep into the vast universe of yourself

That mystery, those answers

Wait in patience

Wait in quietude

Wait in peace

So listen, not with ears or to words

Listen for the heart beat of the secret

Feel how love finds love

This will lift sight to insight

The reflection to recognition

The awareness to awakening

In You, you find yourself anew.

Storm

Poetry: Storm

by Liam

The moment we met, storm shook my sea

Wild into a roaring ocean

“Hark, hark”, gull’s cry

The secret’s uncovered in my sadness

Wisdom flashes out with thunders madness

Illuminates the dark, the spark ignites

In that quiet moment of after shock,

Trembling on the threshold of myself

Feet awash in froth blown free

A pearl pure and perfect

Arose in me

Arose I see

A dream which I had coming.

Power

Poetry: Power

by Liam

Listen up for within the hold

Of who you are

The vessel in which you journey

Is the very force

The power and nature to be who

To be true to the journey

Seek that direction for the power in the hold

Is revealed in the letting go.
