Cri de Coeur

Love, hold me tight
Love, help me flee
Love, keep me bright
Love, set me free.

Love, kiss me true
Love, stand me tall
Love, bear me through
Love, hear my call.

Love, teach me grace
Love, spare me pain
Love, give me space
Love, fall like rain.

Love, warm my mind
Love, touch me soft
Love, thou art kind
Love, dance aloft.

Stopping for Tea

SAMSUNG

 

Early morning on the mountain,

Birds sing out of starry slumber

While the mist drapes, like a bridal veil

Covering the earth with tender grace.

 

Stopping for tea, awakened by the sun,

The valley breathes sanctity and light;

Palpably modest, I tremble in delight

At this glory lovingly unfurled.

 

Man spits and stutters, cursing the world,

Shun from beauty, tramping down the past;

The present is alive, alluringly so

In enduring majesty, a cure to last.

Tranquillity

Be still, be still -
Beauty drowns
Sorrows that kill.

Be still, be still -
Birdsong soothes
The daily drill.

Be still, be still –
Mystery sings
On every hill.

Be still, be still -
Happiness fills
The ardent will.

Be still, be still –
Love is the wine
Lovers distil.

Reflection

I looked into your eyes
And saw desire unfurl;
If you looked into mine
You would see hope uncurl.

I looked into your soul
And saw the open sea;
If you looked into mine
You would see liberty.

I looked into your mind
And saw passion unveil;
If you looked into mine
Wild wonder would prevail.

Amity

Bread on the table.
Sunlight streams through
The open door, words flow
Natural and unforced
Like flowers glowing
In spring.

An hour or two passed;
Conversation, laughter,
Priceless gifts
That matter,
Alert to the present.

Concord reflected
In the wine’s golden glint;
Even if bodies rage,
Happiness stretches
Across the ages.

This river we wade
Awash with wonder,
Upon which strong bonds
Of friendship
Sparkle like silver.

Sparked

You lit my poetic boat

Thus causing my soul to float.

 

You lit my fevered brain

Kissing the end of pain.

 

You lit my ardent craze

Setting my words ablaze.

 

You lit my ruffled shore

Where I craved more and more.

 

You sparked my ardent longing

In love there is belonging.

Everything

Nothing is a spear that pierces the heart,

Nothing is the hollow when you depart.

Nothing is a space devoid of meaning,

Nothing is a crutch on which I’m leaning.

Nothing is life shelled of your smooth skin,

Nothing is a trip that cannot begin.

Nothing is a word that smothers the verb,

Nothing is a cloud that light may disturb.

Nothing is pain but within there is this,

Love is everything that feasts on a kiss.
