Poetry: The Apple

Poetry: The Apple 🍎

by Liam

I have read ten thousand pages

Learned the scriptures and memorized the

Speeches of the

Wise, old and true

Yet you over there

Watch the silence of air

Unfold in patterns

Untold in beauty

This transmigration of thoughts pure fruit

Plucked from the tree of Love

It’s gentle branches embracing my mind

Its soft leaves giving shadow to my rest

It’s roots anchoring my life in the reality of today

Sing, while I cry in joy

Thankful for this sweet taste of life.

Poetry: Rain

Poetry: Rain

by Liam

With the rain refreshing me

Refreshing you my friend

We, yes like flowers in a field

Awaken even brighter to the light

Warmth glowing upon our beauty and joy

Together each unique

Together a sea of stars

Shine in the ever

Present moment of perception.

Poem: The Flowers

by Liam

A bowl of flowers, on the tables wood.

In a pool of sun, the fragrance stood .

Like a watercolour painting which

timelessly spins.

Radiant , streaming sweet scent and the stems.

Stamen, petals, blossoms, leaf together tight

The bouquet of color so radiant bright

Held in a crystal, a bowl she did say

A mothers gift, from my mother today.

The color, this carries my care about who?

Fills me with joy, sweet memories say

Daffodils, chrysanthemums and lilacs too.

Of lilies in blossom of red roses and you.

Days now no longer, still blossom, sweet scented and care.

Of moments like these, when you’re no longer there.

Still, beauty shines inward caught in a vase.

The flowers, the memories, the joys and your charms.

Poetry: Evening

Poem: Evening

Evening

As this day now leaves to lie,

Rays once warm they fill the sky.

In colors changing to heaven bright.

The blues to hues of reds, the white the golden might.

Of a day departed and with me too.

One more moment of bliss complete.

Of touch and love of fleeting happy you.

Yes, you an angel dancing high.

Dancing clouds you cross my eye .

Your horizon lies with me this day.

You fill the night with a starry sky,

with sparks,

with thoughts,

with dreams,

with intervening flashes we unite.

Build a picture, a cosmology ,

A heaven, a party book of light.

Closing now my eyes to sleep

The wonder in my breast I’ll keep.

Till waking neigh on mornings wing

A new, a day together we’ll sing.

Poetry: Field of Flowers

Poetry: Field of Flowers

by Liam

All I own will be here when I’m gone

Out walking with the angels

Here to be sung, to be spoken, to be called

Out loud into the day

The ways of those who listen

Will awake within the how you hear

Yes, hear up deeply wakeup fully, for you too

Will walk these far out places

Far up from the fields of flowers in spring

When God has called

Come and walk with these words

They were once flowers growing here

Given to me, to give to you.

Poetry: Shuffling Feet

Poetry: Shuffling Feet

by Liam

Autumn forest, the cold wind free

Trees throw gold and leaves to me

The trunks stretched tall

Trying touch the sky

I walking mind my step, my eye

Spies the sparrow, quick flying home to nest

The bushy squirrels tail

Leaps from branch to quest

The acorn, chestnut scattered wide

Scattered free

To gather quick and then to hide

For winters bleak, frost storm soon breaks

The joy which autumn here creates

Now in this all

I’m free to treat, my whistling tune with

The shuffle of feet.

Poetry: The Astrolabe

Poetry: The Astrolabe

by Liam

This pen, this ink, this page

Tools with which my thoughts anticipate

Words, words of mine

When graced by God

Becomes a feather,

Life on a wing, flying

Air flow thrusting meaning up towards heaven

Loves lightness, brightness flying out,

A dance where infinity becomes a drying line

Captured in the sands of time

This parchment held in the hand of mine

Words

An astrolabe of loves celestial quest

Eternally visible

Physically measurable

Magically understandable

Love

Poetry: Toast

Poetry: Toast
by Liam

Like the berry before it’s fermentation
Your heartache, first needs create the wine.
In the ache lies it’s magic
The miracle of transformation
See, also the clear stream
Rushing bubbling
Gleefully leaping the cliff
Spray lifted by the breeze
Combed by the light
Reminds me then
It’s to those rainbow colors
Radiant to red
We raise our glasses
Toasting love

Poetry : Gods Tear

Poetry: Gods Tears

by Liam

In that far off garden

God whispered to a rose

Its waking petals primed to life

Songs of color to behold

Rarest fairest handsome

Perfume dancing from the bud

A tear too, fell that morning

Blessed, from Gods cheek a drop.

The rose in wonder answered,

“This flower of perfection, is here for all to love

Gods gift a thorn,

Which came from heaven high above

The pain we some times suffer

The lonely fear in me

So share a rose, a symbol

Love, hope, care and fraternity

The thorn is the reminder

We never are forlorn

The rose my gift of beauty

To brighten every morn.

Poetry: Stardust

Poetry: Stardust

by Liam

“We are not only Stardust, for shining within each of us is also an entire universe of Starlight.” Liam

It’s not alone the dust from stars which constitutes my body.

It’s also the entire radiance of the cosmos which illuminates our consciousness.

So it is, that we emergent recognize our origins and touch with inspiration

the interconnectedness of the moment.
