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.

Only You

Only your light to stave off the darkness
only your grace to cover the vastness;
Only your touch to soften the pain
only your laughter that falls like rain;
Only your words pregnant with meaning
only your love to which I’m leaning.

There is only you to see the night through,
the song of your body keeping me true.

Some Notes on Beauty

Beauty is what makes the Earth spin,
beauty is the force that lies within;
Beauty is bliss that studs the night,
beauty is laughter and lovers’ light.

Beauty is joy cresting the mind,
beauty is finding what is kind,
beauty is touch soothing the past,
beauty is sacred, pure and vast.

Beauty is thought dressed in esprit,
beauty is the way and the key,
beauty is the eternal vow,
beauty is the wonder of now.
