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.

Imagine

Poetry: Imagine

by Liam

In my thoughts,

I reach out not knowing when

I might touch your hair

Stare into the invisible blue of your aquamarine gaze

This imagined invitation is trust, is true

To share in depth with your blue

It’s this vision of a future fair

You playing Satè, quietly in my heart

I go smiling, fly another thousand miles to meet the part

Blinded by the intensity of a wish

To congeal my feelings, create emotions

You now page a book of poems

Remarkably eloquent insights, captured remarks

Include the jive of this emotional connectivity

As you flow, unintentionally rich into my imagination

Again and again and again.

Touch

Poem: Touch

by Liam

As we first touch

It turns out, the thoughts

Your mindfulness is an embrace

My hands run through airy space

Your invisibility fills me with a caress

Yet lips I yearn to know address

The fascination of these features fine

The curve, the flow of beauty around your cheek

Hips I seek to understand

A cascade in gold tumbles across this sky

The blue in heaven

Sparkles from within your inner eye

I know you not or why

Yet, you have entered my blood

Melting fresh as a mountain stream

This moment of recognition

Is meant to define me too

This eternity of who

This infinity of you.

The Chariot

“Come out of the circle of time and into the circle of love.” Rumi

Poetry: The Chariot

Liam

As time turns with us rolling through these years

We live our lives immersed in doing this and that

While the chariot of Love upon which we roll waits

The rich carpets and pillows of loves wealth

Beckon “leave the rolling and join me here in this beautiful

Boudoir of exquisiteness.”

Live with me in the circle of love

It’s already awaiting your change

Move from the endless wheel of time

Join me here on the Chariot of Love.

Our Sea

Poem: Our Sea

by Liam

Like heavy clouds on a sleepless night.

Mist still covers my eyes that might

Reveal those thoughts in a tangle entwined

What had happened?

Were you mine?

These insights burnt, deep into my brain

Combustible particles tinder to flame

Hot licentious fragments of imagination

Fragrant as incense, coil from my thoughts

Your curls in brunette cascade,

Playfully around those red puckered lips

The slim silky covered hips invite

Once shared, we enjoyed the plain

Played the game of you and me.

Our rough,

Our storm,

Our sea,

Our iniquity

Who knows when we again might sail

When we again might sprinkle light

When we again might touch the night

A pod, two peas

Lovers afloat

Our licentious boat

In rough seas.

WAR

Poem: War

by Liam

This is the day for the becoming of me

I awoke to song, from the sycamore tree

To a ray of red, shot from a crimson dawn

Left those dreams of battle and horn

To shout the praise of days to come

Of truth, of love, of life, of fun

I stamped my feet to the pipers drum

Shook with fear from

Those short range guns

To battle, to die, to rage and rant

The young men screamed “till death ya part “

In the smoke, the slash, the heat of steel

The moan of pain, we red coats feel

We fell to be soaked in blood covered mud

While others stabbed and cut and killed

The battle plan had been revealed

Ripped by the blast of a short range shell

The day I died and left that hell

My soul had gone, my heart stopped too

Into light, it’s comfort true.

I entered not those pearly gates

Nor heeded the call of those forlorn

The sycamore sang of a new fresh morn

The dawn, a light with a message to sing

This is the day for the becoming of me

Return to the broken body I see

Free, cried my mind

Free, sang my heart

Free, of death which almost laughed

Limp, stumble, heal, took I so long

It’s the song I now sing

Each day at the dawn

Reminds me now forever long

Reminds me now of my life, my name

Reminds me, of the game of give and grow

Of happy friends my family know

To share, to laugh, to love and cry

That was not my day to die

That was my day to become what you see

The one

The true

The me

Prison

Poetry: Prison

by Liam

When it’s the deep distant chalice

You are reaching for

Take your hammer to the dungeon wall, free thy self

Grabbing the keys and run

Bolt, as if you are being born into the exuberance of color

It’s urgent, it’s now, it’s imperative

“For time is not the ticking of the clock,

It’s the writing on the wall.” It echoes

Remind yourself of this!

Footprint

Poetry: The Footprint

by Liam

Its in the setting of my foot print

That my words begin to walk

A journey across wide spaces

Deep inside my thoughts

The story of those places

Of stars of mountains too

Of hummingbirds and crystal balls

of you and me and who

This world of ever never

It’s here for all to share

It’s here we touch we laugh we cry

We open up the inner eye

To Fly to fly to fly

According to a magic where bonds release the grip

Where things unfold a story told,

A whispered word, a place of gold.

Not only in this hour twixt midnight and the dawn

Outside a storm inside it’s warm

A twinkling star

A princess far

A half filled waiting cookie jar

I’m talking with an angel

who whispers in my ear

„Of seas and ships and sealing wax,

Of cabbages and Kings.“

Friends now gather round me

Your time is near at hand

Your journey starts our ways might part

yet never feel alone at heart

It’s in the setting of that footprint

Your words will learn to walk

Take you on a journey far

Beyond the storm

The twinkling star

The secret space where

We just are

All one

Fragrance

Poetry: Fragrance

by Liam

Sweet petals create the blossom

Delicate gains the perfume of her dance

Forgiveness is a fragrance from her mother

She breaths in slowly smiles, then laughs.

Braids in gold tumble with the magic

Meeting past she spins delightful in a glance.

Beauty Lives On

Poetry: Beauty Live On

by Liam

Thy art is like this warm summer long

The fairness of your face , sweet with song

In Spring, your buds flower to the growing light

In Autumns chill we too smote,wilt and sigh

When hot the eye of heaven weeps

Your beauty’s joy alone it keeps

Eternal in my gaze enthralled

Yet naught of this beauty that you wear will last

As time calls these lines they too shall pass

The life, the love and all that’s real

Live long, live on creating beauty that we feel .
