Burst Forth It Must

What subtle stirring
awakens the trees?
The warmth of the sunshine?
The kiss of the breeze?
What subtle stirring
brings out the leaves?

Perhaps it’s this simple;
Each tree just believes,
to burst forth it must, and thus,
it comes to be.


Little Strings

Such fragile things,
of little strings
our human hearts are made.

But little strings don’t bind
our hearts and minds,
and from the path we’ve strayed.

As we trip and fall,
and rage against it all,
those little strings seem frayed.

The way is surrender,
trusting fingers tender,
wove little strings into a braid.


Follow Us

I was running along the road, feeling like giving up,
when I heard the dry leaves rustling behind me.
Of all the thousands of leaves on my run,
these few caught my attention as they blew quickly past me,
and down the road.
I was concious that they were there just for me.
Follow Us! Follow Us! We know The Way!!“,
they rustled with the spirit of the wind that carried them.
I tried to keep up, but they were gone.

What a beautiful moment of Grace.


Prayer

Help me bear this burden,
with gratitude and grace.
Teach me faith and patience,
so that I may set it down,
in this life or the next,
and know the wisdom of it’s purpose.
With this, I give myself to you.
Lord this is my prayer.


Look To The Skies

Cast not your eyes to the ground,
Look to the skies though clouds abound,
There will be brighter days.

As your sun shall rise your moon shall crown,
Look to the skies through darkened gown,
There will be stars ablaze.

When life’s ties have you tightly bound,
Look to the skies there faith is found,
There will be brighter days.


True Love

true love flows without condition
true love imposes no constraint
true love seeks not permission
true love makes no complaint
true love always tries again
true love keeps no time
true love ignores the will of men
true love is divine.


If You Deeply Feel

If you deeply feel the need to
there are words that God will read you
in your heart upon a scroll
entitled; “your best and highest goal”
a contract you agreed to.

Listen, and let them lead you
knowing they have freed you
to shine within your soul
if you deeply feel.

If you follow, as a seed grew
then like the flower, you may proceed to
fulfil your sacred role
and once again, be whole
remember; this only is indeed true
if you deeply feel.


Surrender

breath be my guide
set my body apart
still my spirit
let soul fill my heart

return to the sanctity
of a newborn child
no thoughts to hold
no memories filed

timeless and formless
forget to remember
there’s no resistance
pure surrender.


A Heart That Broke

together we light a candle
blessed in His name
in the quiet darkness it shines
upon the remains
of a friend, a brother, a lover
and simply ‘a good bloke’.

the piano fades to the empty stage
leaving the light of a solitary flame
in the quiet darkness it shines
upon the remains
of a heart that broke.


Hotel Bed

head on a cloud
white crush
envelopes me
opulent rush

wide expanse
gently yields
cotton crisp
peppermint fields

cocooned between
subtle seams
luxurious stairway
to beautiful dreams
