Poetry: Knowledge

Poetry: Knowledge

by Liam

Take knowledge and make it your art

With this art you will know what needs ignoring

This is the art of knowing what to ignore

For what you need to know is waiting

Here, around every corner of distraction

Every question of importance is answered

By creating a peaceful mind

Adapt to switching off

Shutting out

Ignoring the babble and chatter of the

Inconsequential and profane

This is knowledge which brings understanding

The understood enables meaning

The meaning creates the value

This treasure is the you, you require knowledge to understand!

Poetry: The Music

Poetry: The Music

by Liam

Apon us music came down

Filling our soul with sounds

Great, small even fine tunes

Sprang up from the fountain

The wind began to whisper in voices

As yet unheard,

Though understood, in the heart of the heart

This beauty was unknown

Till you gazed with my eyes

Perceiving not the other

Nor the smile on those fine lips

But joy spinning us together

As stars surround the universe

As petals surround the stamen

In colorful patterns creating beauty new

Happiness too throughout this life.

Poetry: The Quill

Poetry: The Quill

by Liam

A feather flying from the wing

Became my quill to scribe this night

Of the wind in the sky

Of wide distant flight

To the moon, the stars on a cloudy day

I dip the nib to the pot

I write

The candle flickers to the shadows stooped dance

A black line scribbles as if in trance

Twists crazed in circles from left to right

To my thoughts which with the night fly free

The page now full with this poetry

How this began or how it might end

I know not how, I know not when.

The quill in my hand, to write till the end.

Poetry: The Pilgrimage

Poetry: The Pilgrimage

by Liam

When we walk, as pilgrims along the road of love

I wear my cloak of gratitude

My sandals throw up dust from the past

Selfishness dissipates

Pain becomes a liberation

Images of where I’ve been and done

Each step, each day

Bringing me closer to God

This appreciation strengthens the substance

Of my soul

Filling every nook and cranny of my life

Bringing me back to where we all began

Over there, on the other side

Towards which I’m again marching

A pilgrimage, to this place called me.

Poetry; The Cure

Poetry: The Cure

by Liam

Love cures the pain

Which pain will continue to create,

Until you allow your eyes to consistently exhale love,

As effortlessly as your body yields to its own scent.

Let yourself be ecstatic in this recognition

For the love you breathe

Is the life you perceive.

Poem: Emergent Me

Poem: Emergent Me

by Liam

When I feel

When I hear my heart

Beating

Strange wonderful & new

It’s you, you know .

Who’s new to me.

Who’s music plucks the strings .

Strung tight across my life.

Lines which connect the invisible.

Threads, a web of connected ideas.

Weave the mysterious meaning.

We all seek to understand,

We all strive to accomplish,

We all try daily to fulfill.

You,

Yes it’s you though.

That has begun to

Unravel the tapestry of what I believe I am.

This discovery

This revelation

This find is monumental.

My watermark born deep,

Deep within the flesh of my DNA .

The true meaning of the me

Hard programmed in helicital patterns.

I’ve always wanted,

I’ve always tried to see.

A blueprint of who I could,

of who I would be with you.

Who catalyzed me emergent,

From the fabric of upbringing .

To the liberated mind of conscious aware truth.

Awake to the now

Aware of the how

Wanting only the really

Truest you.

To hold my me in warm hands and smile.

Inspirational Poetry: Solitude

Inspirational Poetry: Solitude

by Liam

Your solitude is not your isolation

It’s space

A place which is quiet and rich

Vibrant, filled with who you are

Resonating with what you think

Vibrating with what you feel

Harmonious with a vision of the true you.

Here we are unique, original and beautiful

I was never taught to discover this place of solitude

We were never shown how intrinsically special quietude

Unfolds, unrolls, unravels

Places so filled with sincerity

Loves power lies in protecting your solitude

My solitude is love protecting me.

Poetry: The Fall

Poetry: The Fall

by Liam

You see me so clearly

How all I want is this

The darkness from the endless fall

Consumed, digested and transformed

Then the light

The shimmering flight of a new assent.

It’s the smiling faces

Each full of hope which embrace

The change, the challenge, the scope of it all

From consummation of the dark

We draw those understandings

Into new realities, lifting

Opening up the horizon

To make me realize

It’s been here

This is me

In me, all along.
