The Book of Love

In the Book of Love you'll find me
dancing to a melody - my own
tune, my memories, dissolving,
crumbling, mending.

Back to the drawing board take me,
fill me, complete me - find me
in wild flowers by the way side,
pebbles, brooks and landslides.

Through pages blank now draw me
out of nothing - building, creating
life-ling journeys, painting
rainbows, endings, beginnings.

In the Book of Love you'll leave me
humming softly - a fresh melody,
new life, hope, harmony,
lifting, haunting symphony.

Temple of Light

Through the tunnel of darkness
we wander,
Towards a sliver of light
hand in hand.

Red poppies cradling babies
in slumber,
Fairy dew lanterns, fireflies,
dreamland.

Dancing lightly through the glen
we leave them,
To the edge of a steep cliff
now arrive.

A leap of faith our next venture
together,
Into magical waters where
laughter resides.

On to the canyon grand
beyond yonder,
An ancient song and dance
we join,

Lie back on red earth and gaze
in wonder,
At stars shining down, gentle 
and bright.

The blue star's Temple of Light
beckons,
Alters my reality, heals from
within.

Red earth again, the Dead Sea
calls,
So once again the journey
begins.

We cleanse and regenerate,
spread our wings,
Soft pink and lavender,
sparkles within.

The Edge Of A Dream

Thunder rolls by
Lightning strikes
Fallen trees on highways
The hour is midnight.

The edge of a precipice
The edge of a scream
The edge of sorrow
The edge of a dream.

Pregnant pause
Still the morn
Pale skies glimmer
The hour is dawn.

The edge of mystery
The edge of a seam
Kilimanjaro
The edge of a dream.

Gateways open
Sunbeams bow
Oceans shimmer
The hour is now.

The edge of knowledge
The edge of a theme
The edge of tomorrow
The edge of a dream.

Minervah

Mystic dog, he guides me
Leads me to her cave
Golden in the shadows
Sunlight in the shade.

Her call at once compelling
Potent brew of times afore
I follow - steady, blindly
To a world beyond my shores.

To the depths of the blue ocean
To the crystal cave of lore
Shedding, healing, breathing
A life now gone, once more.

To land she brings me - safely
To heart and home by night
Whispers goodbye - softly
Minervah - mermaid bright.

Cross The Stream

Cross the river
Cross the sea
'Tis the stream
That challenges me.

Sparkling water
Cobbled stones
Love's own daughter
Violet tones.

Hold my hand
Share my light
Step by step
Win the fight.

Lush green grass
Diamond paths
Dancing daisies
Joy-filled hearts.

Love's Pathway

Yellow lilies
dance and sway
Away, together
Life's pathway.

Calling from afar
they say
Come away with me
To a place far away.

I follow, stumble
upon my way
Encounter red lilies
To passion - prey.

Whispers from afar 
I hear
Forget me not
I hold you dear.

Lily white
come what may
Love will always
Find a way.

What is it about you
that shakes me to the core,
Building bridges, barriers,
Building walls, breaking doors?

What is it about you,
The intensity of your gaze,
Shatters glass, crushes hearts,
Opens the floodgates?

It's nothing but a sense
of an old forgotten wound,
Buried 'neath the surface,
Protected by the womb.

It's nothing but a memory
of feelings tortured, cold,
Swept beneath the cobwebs
of the heart's stronghold.

What is it I'm feeling
as I wash away the fear?
Hope for new tomorrows,
Wisdom beyond tears.

In Chaos

In chaos I found darkness,
Through chaos saw the light,
With chaos came clear vision
Beauty and wonder bright.

Chaos brought me illness,
Also strength of will,
Chaos both my nemesis
And ally if you will.

Chaos stoked the embers
Of memories buried deep,
Rising like a phoenix
Raging forest fires leap.

Chaos cleansed the fire,
Stilled my heart's erratic beat,
Washed away illusions
Mirrored in my dreams.

In chaos I sought mystery,
Followed my path, my right,
Midst chaos I surrendered
To love and faith - pure might.


As tears filled up
her crying eyes,
Amidst midnight blue
stars rose up in the sky,
They twinkle and shine for all to see,
these sparkling stones, no one knows
how old they be.

As pain fills her aching heart
The tide hits the ocean
and breaks it apart,
When the rough waters take a pause,
lay still and reflect the calm all across,
the deep of the ocean no one sees
or knows of the turbulence that lies beneath.
