Unveiled

Show me your sorrow
And I will tell
You my fears.
For what is more real
Than beauty in tears?

Show me your joy
And I will tell
You my needs.
For what is more pure
Where tenderness bleeds?

Over

The messages we wrote
from distant lands no longer
blaze with gifts they held;
Rather they denote
how easily words conceal
desire from intention,
drifting into unanchored space.

Silence is the moat
guarding unaligned eyes.
Over this foolish pageant,
ravens ride the current
circling a new freedom.

Acknowledgement

Silence is always beautiful
As is the sudden, sharp tang of beer,
A mouth-watering view,
And you
             Floating free
Over the mountain-tops,
Translucent in blue.

Catching

I catch at everything
The sun at the window,
The jackdaws’ hopeful cries,
The day stretched out
In summer’s shimmering heat.
The burning bowls of fruit,
The nourishing to be had.
I catch and I love,
Words drifting from trees,
Images of happiness,
The endless hours.

The Flare of A Star

A whisper, a word, a call from afar
Tenderness floods the bottomless heart;
Scars take flight and clamour to part,
Minutes quicken in the flare of a star.

Reflections

Light painting patterns.
Flowers on the table.
Tea in hand,
Pages turning.
The prospect of joy.
Love waiting to be caught.
You. Only you.

Dark weaving shadows.
Moonlight beckons.
Silence floats,
Leaves falling.
The turning of pain.
Words scattered by touch.
You. Only you.

Éclat

I love you for

Your éclat and élan,

Your sparkle and splendour,

Your panache and pizzazz.

I love you for

Your words and wit,

Your sorrow and surprise,

Your voice and uplift.

I love you for

Your beauty and more.
