Nothing But Love

Nothing But Love - dec 10 2017 - galaxy NGC 4490 - hubble

It took me a while
To realise how,
The ‘what’ and the ‘if’,
The ‘should haves’ of now.

It finally dawned,
I let the past go,
Importance of ‘then’,
Now infinitely low.

Come with me, we’ll climb
To heights far above,
Joy in the moment,
And nothing but love.

Early Morning Thoughts – #4

Early Morning Thoughts-#4 - nov 26 2017_morguefile

Whilst we are quietly gathering,
The Storm that’s building in our hearts
Will, one day, break forth,
Cover the land,
Heal all wounds,
Smother all wrongs,
And return love to its rightful place.

Eternity In A Moment

Eternity In A Moment - Nov 19 2017 - credit to morguefile-hotblackfile8891347731372

Tumultuous skies rained
On soft feathers.

Stretching the whisper of touches
He reached for her.
She could not see through the veil
Yet felt the touch,
Leaned her head to the breeze,
Aching for more.

Responding to the need,
Creation paused.

He withdrew his hand, thunder rolled,
Clouds broke apart,
Tear soaked feathers lifted, waved,
Sunrays poured through,
Stroking face, smoothing fears,
Soothing sorrow.

Eternal memory,
Moment in time.

Essence

Hubble spies NGC 4394

 

Thoughts, mighty essence,
Twirling in infinity,
Seeds life deep within.

Mighty thoughts, essence,
Creating expanding space,
Room for growth to thrive.

Essence, mighty thoughts,
Engender hope, healing, love,
Eternal presence.

Between The Spaces

Between The Spaces - October 8 2017 - hubble

In between
Lie spaces
Sinuously teeming
Silently streaming
Riches of life

There
You may
Find me
Waiting

Patiently
Pondering
Moments
We shared

Ruminating
Feeling
Flow
That’s still there

Grasping at stars
Like sparks
In the air

Hoping to find you
In each
Flickering glare

Turning then twisting
For the life
In between

Where love
Is all
There is

Love Is Freedom

For NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo 2016 – Day 14 (to prompt – see below)

****

It took me time scrying the surface,
To find the truth that lay below,
So deep and buried, hidden far from view.
The surface briefly rippled, I nearly missed the hidden trace,
The truth that, as it came to light, I wondered should I know?
Yet, as this truth broke surface and brought me to my knee,
A surge of understanding from deep within me grew,
A soaring wave of hidden love that set my spirit free.

Hopefully, my brain fog has lifted! 🙂

The prompt: “Today’s prompt comes to us from TJ Kearney, who invites us to try a seven-line poem called a san san, which means “three three” in Chinese (It’s also a term of art in the game Go). The san san has some things in common with the tritina, including repetition and rhyme. In particular, the san san repeats, three times, each of three terms or images. The seven lines rhyme in the pattern a-b-c-a-b-d-c-d.”

Comment: I find eight lines in this rhyming pattern and in the example given so have gone with the eight rather than the seven…

Fathers Love Lament

****

Candles flickering in the dark night scene,
Two lovers meeting silently unseen,
Sweet whispers carry nothing of import,
As lips kiss ears and breathing becomes short.
Shouts filter through the woods coming their way,
The father hunting hard to have his say,
Yet knowing how he feels can’t stop their love,
Both feel divinely met from God above.
Nothing here on Earth can part them now,
As face to face they slowly sink to ground,
To consummate their love as soon as die,
In passions frenzy Jules reaches for her guy,
And when the dogs arrive their love is spent,
As Father, looking down, starts his lament.

When Love Becomes More

When love becomes more than you expected
Days brighten
Clouds seem full of life and faces
Senses heighten
Clarity returns to places you thought had died
Your world shines again
