Poem ~ Amber Drops

lilyenn eternityAmber drops of autumn gold

Winter freeze turns bitter cold

Hope it springs with verdant grace

Inviting smiles from summer’s face

 

Seasons come and seasons go

Displaying all of nature’s show

Harvest brings its dividends

Nurtured by Life provident

 

Oceans swell and then abate

Trusting moon to seal its fate

Tidal signs left on the shore

Lifted up from deep sea floor

 

Stars stream light and pattern shape

To help night hunters navigate

Shifting round the central eye

Remaining focused in the sky

 

Earthly orbit round the sun

Reclaims its old, producing young

Misty rain and morning dew

Rising sun, each day anew

 

Tumbling clouds in azure blue

Frames broad spectrum in milieu

Refracting prism of sunlight

Forming shapes in colours bright

 

Beauty shines from all creation

Her displays are but reflection

Of Life’s breath in every being

Behold, full joy is in the seeing

Evening Sun

Green slopes along the horizon of my vision

Cascading into the valley of my nature

Filling it up with sap of new growth

A bird in flight swoops beneath my heart

Calling it to reach for the skies

I catch a floating feather on the morning

Hoping for wings in the evening sun

That I may fly to your side

In the bare solitude of my soul

 

See beyond the lines of my skin

Open your heart to my love

Let me see the beauty in you

My knocks are hard on your ears

And fall heavily upon your door

I catch a floating feather at noon

Praying for wings at the setting sun

So that I may fly to be with you

And touch the nakedness of your soul

 

A string of trifles eats up the hours

Bringing me to my knees

A prayer catches a golden ray

Blinding my temporary self

Revealing the inner eye of truth

There is no division between us

Once more my eye seeks the horizon

To find it is no longer there

I have drifted out on golden wings

To meet you in the evening sun

Soul, who do you marry this morning?
Artificial intelligence
Human intelligence
Cosmic intelligence
Online, offline, skyline
Negative and positive
Scurry to attract a polarised charge
A cell for the unconscious
Male and Female
Dreaming lovers
Dead to the Truth
Typing an escape
Into a two dimensional world
Wake up sleeping soul
You are not a battery
You are a prototype
An original source
Of cosmic light
Waiting to be born

To Create a Wonder out of Man

Tears are there to melt away
All the pain of yesterday
They turn the pages of man’s story
Reinstating love’s full glory
Illuminating Life’s great plan
To create a wonder out of Man

Paradise is near at hand
For felon, judge and brigand
But hooded eyes must open wide
And be a witness from inside
There to see what has been done
To nature and our fellow man

Pointing fingers do not serve
And cause an erring soul to swerve
Back to live in darkened hollow
Fear resisting every shadow
Trust in One who knows the way
And leads the soul to light of day

Heaven is just perchance
For those who deal in resistance
Hell believes its own intention
Interference and intervention
Its path is wide and paved in stone
Cut from souls who walk alone

Active self comes at a price
Binding man in seven vice
Wounded heart and unjust law
Corrupt mind and hardened jaw
Shadow brings abuse of power
And man’s solution comes by war

Enlightened Man finds armistice
And pure soul comes to paradise
When at last there comes surrender
One by one each soul will enter
Joy will ring from music lute
In the temple of the Absolute
