Waves


Watching the movement.





Waves  -  11 Sep 17

In form
Sea shows the power
Says look at me
I can dance for you
I can dance with you
Let the strength
Of my waves
Carry you
To another world






Sometimes the sea can take us to unsafe places.

Listen


Just open your ears.





Listen  -  10 Sep 17

The trees share their wisdom
Birds gather
Add their voices
To the song of the world
In the whispering rain
As the morning awakes
Listen to the dreamsong

Destroying sadness in
An instant
I am hers
Forever

The Journey


Inspired, if that is the right word, by a visit to a podiatrist seven miles away.





The Journey  -  07 Sep 17

Planned
But
With unexpected results
A hint of rain
Then the meeting failed
I returned home
With pain







The problem was that the podiatrist did not make the appointment as told me she did.

September Song [Acrostic]


Celebrating the start of September.





September Song [Acrostic]  -  01 Sep 17

Secrets gather in the quiet of an
Evening as dusk gathers around the
Passion smouldering waiting
To be awakened again
Emerald forests
Move in syncopated rhythm
Before darkness hides
Everything from
Reality

Sacred dreams dance
Over nightfall
Nocturnal spirits
Gather again







Beauty in the darkness.
