From time to time a poem

A new chapter begins
and the old begins to fade
as characters make cameos
with others I part ways

experiences come my way
as the ink begins to flow
new adventures wait for me
on journeys I must go

the character develops
as dynamic as they come
and though I'll change along the way
I'll remember where I'm from

as this new chapter closes
I know not where I'll be
I only know one simple thing
this story is still about me

The heart spoke to Hate

The heart spoke to hate encased in the sarcophagus of ego
The two spoke as lovers who longed for clarity
It is in this darkness that hate sang its clarion call of misery
I loath and seethe, I bind and ensnare, i tie and choke

And all along it sang in the dark

The heart spoke in tones that can not be heard by the human ear
It is in this darkness the eyes of hate flickered hope
love appeared and embraced hate only to say... We are one.

A recent one I wrote after a little seaside holiday with my son:


Bournemouth

Silver seas lap steep cliffs
From our lofty gull-nest lookout
Zigzag crag to golden shoreline
As we move across this still scene
You and I, hands clasped together
Father and son as this son never had

To the aquarium
Your excitement bridles horror
Of those huge unknowing faces
But your spark which led us deeper
Still ignites in water tunnels
As you trace the sharks and turtles overhead

Sandcastles, the October beach
You work industriously
Return misty coast to structure
But hate the waves and fear them
When they wipe your name from fixture
Find my eternal arms a restitution

Together we take dinner
You watch me for a cue, but
I am proud to call you equal
In this cheap and run down bar room
Where we banquet like old kings
As old friends in decades distantly remembered

Begin the trudge uphill
You fight the wind and curse it
Using words you’re only learning
We wend our skyward path
On my shoulders, lift ascending
Til I lay you down in your bed with a kiss.

One from last night:

J

I see you, sunset perfect
Mountainous soul, fire hearted
Deep sea dark of your conviction
Meet compassion’s cloudless skies

Care sown deep in holy hands
Which soothe and settle beyond speaking
Push and change the outcome, and
With gentle strokes move countries

Time drifts as seconds settle
Snowlike thawing forming streams, that
Feed a river, swelling still lakes
And great oceans of your making.

The couple

Sleep softly my dear, sleep dearly tight

For I will keep you safe until the morning light

In my arms you are safe, safe through the night

And I will hold you until the morning light

In my arms you are warm, no troubles in sight

In my arms you sleep soundly, until the morning light

Dream softly my love, no nightmares tonight

Until you wake once again to the morning light

Sleep softly my dear, sleep dearly tight

For I will keep you safe until the morning light

Remember the doctrine; embody the code.
Live the creed; embrace the 16 teachings.
Honor your vows.

This is not my work, but this man is an inspiration to me and my own spoken word poetry.
I think he hit the nail right on the head.

the universe is musing
shooting stars aren’t random
“feed me” were your first words
just like the rest of us
poetry yet to be written
wordsongs in shrieking screams

your diaper pins traded in
for sticky disposables
the ocean paid the price

take up your pen
take back your safety pins
a holster on each hip
the reviews will wet your pants
no one really gets what you mean
stop and eat now and then
you won’t miss anything
the universe never
jumps over the muse

Stillness

Elongated seconds
Drifting ever deeper
Speeding through the silence
Cloudburst moon ascending
Though the past is leaving
Future cannot catch me;
In these empty moments
You become who you are.

Hidden inner circles
Locked and clasped in amber
Light that cannot shine out
Warmth that is repeating
Summer follows winter
Autumn springs from ashes;
Ashes of all meaning,
And leave the world at peace.

Dear inspiration

Hark a known voice calls out to me
Dark, not as night but blue as the sea
With fathoms of wisdom turned on each phrase
My eyes burn like fire, I've met with her gaze
Straight in through the window and into my heart
She fills me with passion, yes that is her art
Kissed by her lips, gone is anticipation
My love has come home
Sweet dear inspiration.

Just a Dream?

It all begins as just a dream
of an angel up above
On wings of black she soars about
as peaceful as the dove

And as she soars she sweetly sings
those melodies of old
I cannot count the lessons learned
from stories she has told

I contemplate these lessons
as she starts to descend
It seems these dreams are more to me
then simply just pretend

Gracefully she lands and then
she looks me in the eye
I see sorrow, pain and joy
as tears fall from the sky

She cares for me so deeply
I somehow know it's true
A perfect being comes to me
and I split her heart in two

As we stand I think of how
I'm determined to repair
the damage I have done to her
and show her that I care

She looks at me and smiles
she sees inside my head
she says to focus not on her
but on myself instead

Her voice is so entrancing
I can not disobey
I stand and listen happily
to what she has to say

When time to part has come our way
she says we'll meet again
I look at her with longing
she's more than just my friend

The next time I will see you
will not be like this it seems
For when next you lay your eyes on me
we'll be not in your dreams

I wait for her to tell me more
though it seems it's not to be
She gracefully spreads out her wings
and soars away from me

With this I wake and wonder
how long must I now wait
It all began as just a dream
and now it is my fate
