Table of my becoming

Table of my becoming I sit in stillness and Invite everything and everyone in, To gather around the Table of my becoming All the fragments The dispossessed of So many generations Floating and flying around Invisible in the ether Longing to find their way home To take their place and So to complete and fill […]

Beauty rich

Beauty rich Touching a wordless depth of being It is the simplicity in life Which is most beautiful; Cat curled on a cushion, View from my window on this Pale November morning, The great arc of sky, Chimney smoke snaking. At the hanging feeder; small birds, Pigeon perched, awaiting The window sill scattering, The few […]

I rest into the open hearted generosity

I rest into the open hearted generosity Of the Great Spirit Born into the ‘civilised’ west, but Bringing with me the thread of Consciousness that knows we Do not own the Earth But are supported by her, and We in return are required To honour and tend her; Her abundance, her gifts, And to give […]

I will not

I will not I will not stay stuck In busy mind and thinking. I stretch and spread my Looking, my listening, Till feeling ignites and Expands into fullness, Brimming a way and Path to knowing. I will not spoil this day with Guilt and shame that Scrambles around, seeking A place to enter, To tighten […]

I watch the birds

I watch the birds Wash of cloud moving across A deepening grey sky, I bear my cross. Courage is what these Times are hungry for Not medication and television To keep us ‘soft’ and silenced.

Becoming Spirit

Thursday 25th September 2014 Becoming spirit We are too solid Too entrenched in matter We have forgotten that We are also the soft breeze And the wild wind The light stretching shafts Sharing a warm touch With all and everything And the deep quiet dark Where stars blaze. We are all of this when We […]

Cemeteries

Cemeteries These havens awash with the life and growth of nature Where the dead rest, Their particular fascination Grows a feeling in Living forms that wander, A slowing down Drawing in Flowing out, A quietness falls softly, We are invited into another world Full and light with spirit And a soft calm where they have […]

Bright the world

Bright the world Bright the world With eyes washed By so many tears, Each veil removed Revealing new clarity Like the silver sparkles In yesterdays stark cold Air awash and dancing Clear blue the winter sky. Abandoning escape routes I have accompanied myself Stayed close Felt deep Let waves rise and tumble Drag and dash […]

August autumn

August autumn This middle August autumn Carries so many autumns past, So that all lie around me Gathered as one fullness, One brimming overflowing Lush as spring’s new green. Gathering to a brink Like starlings flocking in Hundreds, for the great flight. More vast in the dying down, Drawing in, Towards the Full surrender that […]
