Poetry: The Whisper

by Liam

Gazing beyond my eyes sight

I saw into the heart of heaven

My soul asked, “ Tell me about patience.”

A whisper replied, “ Let silence

be the art of your forbearance,

patience will take you to the core of yourself. “

My mind enquired, “What mystery is this?”

It echoed, “What your soul hears

Is the journey of Love.

A wonder, the mind cannot comprehend.”

My heart laughed, “ This understanding has always been ours.”

The poem “The Whisperer” is a short but thought-provoking piece that explores the themes of patience, silence, and love. The poem is composed of a dialogue between different parts of the speaker’s self, which adds depth and complexity to the poem’s meaning.

The opening lines of the poem immediately draw the reader in with a vivid image of the speaker gazing beyond their eyesight, suggesting a sense of transcendent experience. The reference to “the heart of heaven” further reinforces this idea of a spiritual encounter. When the soul asks about patience, the whisper’s reply to let silence be the art of forbearance highlights the importance of quiet reflection and contemplation. The idea that patience can take one to the core of oneself suggests that patience is not simply about waiting for something, but also about the process of self-discovery.

The dialogue continues as the mind enquires about the mystery of what the soul hears. The whisper’s response that the journey of love is a wonder that the mind cannot comprehend suggests that love is a deeply spiritual and mystical experience that transcends rational understanding. This idea is reinforced by the final lines, in which the heart laughs and affirms that this understanding has always been ours. The idea that love is something that is known in the heart, rather than in the mind, adds a poignant and emotional depth to the poem’s message.

Overall, “The Whisperer” is a beautifully crafted poem that uses simple language and a conversational style to explore complex and profound ideas. The dialogue between different parts of the speaker’s self adds layers of meaning and complexity, while the focus on patience, silence, and love gives the poem a timeless quality that will resonate with readers of all ages.

“Transmutation” is a beautiful poem that explores the idea of transformation through pain and suffering. The first stanza describes the speaker’s emotional state and the source of their grief, which they describe as “that which chokes my eye” and the tears they cry as a result. The speaker’s soul is depicted as being in turmoil, twisting and turning, and experiencing a soul-pain that burns.

In the second stanza, the speaker reflects on how their pain is not just a source of suffering but also a source of growth and transformation. The tears, like rain, are said to wet the soil of heaven, implying that through their pain, the speaker is able to gain a deeper spiritual understanding. The speaker also mentions the idea of a “thorn” in their life, suggesting that the source of their pain is not necessarily something they can easily get rid of, but it is also what allows them to grow and become better.

The final stanza is a celebration of the transformation that the speaker has undergone. They compare their transformation to the transmutation of a stone into a ruby red, suggesting that the transformation they have undergone is not just a superficial change, but a deep and meaningful one. The transformation is described as a “self-created bliss,” meaning that the speaker has created their own happiness and joy through their pain and suffering.

Overall, “Transmutation” is a powerful poem that explores the idea of growth and transformation through pain and suffering. The speaker’s journey from grief and pain to a sense of self-created bliss is a reminder that even in the darkest moments, there is always the possibility for growth and change.


Poetry: Essence

by Liam

It’s the absence, the very lack

Which reveals the essence

This enables me to recognize

That it’s with nothing

We discover something so essential

Not who I am

For this I will die or decay

It’s what we are

Which is commonly called essential

Invisibly profound, yet definitely formative

This treasure lies, intimately hidden

Yet intentionally discoverable for us all.

Poetry: Incinerate

by Liam

Often, what we believe is not what we think

Let loves flame first incinerate my intention

Rising up is not smoke, but sweet perfume

Watch the rosebud kiss your blushing cheek

Which color speaks of a greater love

Throw that bud to the pyre

For it’s heartache which consumes desire

Love’s flame proclaims the truth, reveals the power.
