Succinct Poetry: Recognition by Liam

Succinct Poetry: Recognition

by Liam

They sat looking

A lover

A seeker

“Where will you find it?” said the lover

“Where will you discover it?” said the seeker

Meeting, their gaze recognized the poetry

Touching, their fingers recognized the energy

Laughing, their hearts recognized each other.

For within oneself we find seeker and discover lover.

When we seek with love

We uncover the other.

Inspirational Poetry: The Ark

Inspirational Poetry: The Ark

by Liam

Be an ark, a vessle to cross the vast ocean of life

On board, take those who also swim in light

Calling to the stars and singing to infinity

Songs of joy, memories of a future calling

For the swift journey is best carried on the wings of words

Each a praise to love

Each a lover to life

Each a sailor of the soul

To the shores of our distant tomorrow.

Poetry Poem: Voices

Poetry Poem: Voices

With closed mouths

We spoke

Not to me

Not to them

It’s you who heard yourself

For the first time

Whispering

Quietly in the distance

Of your mind

This joy

This revelation

This moment

Of recognition that your voice

Was mine.

Mine, when I’m quiet

Is yours too

In this place of peace

We all speak and understand

We can all listen and know

It’s true.

Poetry Poem: Sleep

Poetry Poem: Sleep

By Liam

Let silence be the Art of your participation

In the quiet

In the peace

In this moment

It’s no longer about me

About you or anyone

It’s simply the vastness

Which moving up

From within washes

Away apprehension

Refreshing the memories

The life of deep expanse

Before descending into

This humanity, this body

This life of here and there

Let silence be the Art of my participation

For this moment of now

Is the light which will glow

After I return to sleep.

Poetry Poem: Atom

Poetry Poem: Atom

Within the atom lies an entire universe

the positivity

the negativity

the electrons

fly in waves

Or orbits of possibilities

Quantum not quantity

Holds sway

This magnificence is in me too

Be it cells, the enzymes

Hormones, blood or muscle

it’s profound,

it’s deep,

it’s within a field of energy

My heart leaps kicking heals with amazement

How our kind has come to be

This unique epiphany

Let’s also call it Joy and make me free

Free to fly.

Have you too flown to that place of peace?

That home of all, from which a call

Resonates each and every waking day

It’s in the invisible

The atom, cell or sky

We need to look

We need to laugh

We need to coagulate

Around the reality of nothing

To find it

All

Poetry Poem: Panorama

Poetry Poem: Panorama

By Liam

Your love lifts my soul, up to touch the sky

You take me to these worlds to where the spirit calls, fly

The warmth drying my rain

Joy smiles new across my pain

For in being lifted above

I left a vapor trail across heaven

Alone for you to find

For God to see

I was there

Now I’m me.
