Touch

You come to me in dreams,
a light that always gleams;
On every path I walk,
ensorcelled by your talk.

You come to me in mind,
a spell that gushes kind;
Greening my arid heart,
from touch do fountains start.

You come to me in need,
stating a sacred creed;
I read what you convey,
a beacon come what may.

Thankful

A beer on a hot summer’s day,

Spirit soaring on the fragrant breeze,

The smile of a stranger, gifted.

Ducks dancing on rippling water,

Words written from a distant lover,

Memories melting in pulsing heat,

The thread of love in everything.

Even the merest glimpse is enough,

breaking always on the cusp of knowledge,

for all and more – thankful, I tremble.

Fragments

20140728-100914-36554207.jpg

A child’s laughter,

Rising like a balloon.

The whispering sea,

Nursing songs of joy.

The dog chasing a bird,

Caught by the current.

People converge,

Sun-struck and content,

Melting as one;

Faraway, the past ebbs

Sucked into the breeze.

Immersed in the moment,

These fragments roar;

A prayer for life,

The prospect of more.

Airborne

20140718-084428-31468920.jpg

The air we breathe
on the peak
is like none other,
and the visions
we see,
unfurl with radiance -
wonder to behold.

I drink everything in,
greedy, full of need;
purified yearning -
like this love, floating
here to there.

Enlightenment

20140709-145051-53451414.jpg

A cafe in Plovdiv,
I think of you
Full as the sun;
As I watch the crowd,
A strutting colourful gallery,
What stands out
Singular and distinct
Is the vibrancy of your song.

Awakening

20140703-181518-65718783.jpg

Resting by the lake,
I realised all of a sudden,
that the ripples
of our love
shall kiss and greet
on intimacy’s shore.

Listening to the breeze,
unlocking silent whispers,
I saw how soft
true concord is,
Pure as a great bird
scaling new heights.

Grateful is not the word,
gazing at the dancing stars,
for as long as
Nature yields
bittersweet truths,
lovers’ light holds me tight.

Thirst

I feel a great thirst
all of a sudden,
for this life
brimming with wonder.

Sucking on the marrow,
all that it offers,
I feel a great thirst
all of a sudden.

Bursting at the seams,
every pore alert,
I feel a great thirst
all of a sudden.

Pouring without end,
love lighting the mind;
I feel a great thirst
all of a sudden.

Revelling in green,
the colour of hope;
All of a sudden,
I feel a great thirst.
