Crying River

Crying River (The Untold Ballad) 

Undercover waters of rain dashing
The children are cold, no longer splashing
Tragic sobs, epic force of the mountain rain
Beautiful as it may seem, -shallow basin 

She cries, a tune, 
Mocking the Maple lands, a beautiful tune
Crooked Cornwall, she steams with the moon
Oceanic dreams, monsoon season, she swoon's
Frozen, dead, ice skating rink
Her winds, Pretty Chains O' Lake 
Wet and Wild, the Elk drinks from its garden
Water falls from the lids of Jordan
Beautiful as it may seem with open curtain

When the ocean succeeds away from the sea
She's awake during winter's rain torrents and breeze
Lost in the mud's of Bellaire's heartache,
River Blues, icy cold naps, bayous shutting up
Racing rivers crying by the western gutter
Silent, bells chime in the Black Mallard waters
Streams, blowing and drying dew droplets
Little rapid tears, everything spotless
Sugar, Swan waves down by Devils Creek
Listen to the thunder bay rolling deep
Beautiful as it may seem, she weeps

A northern world with streaks of falling rain
Pretty running white hair pane
A weather vane, snow dangles above her domain 
Beautiful crying winds
In the Eyes of Michigan

A Little Snowflake

There once was a little snowflake
that was beautiful, cold and white
He was created up high within the clouds
during a storm one winters night

There were millions and millions of other flakes
but, no two that look alike
So, every snowflake received a name
and, his given name was Mike

Now as long as the wind was blowing hard
the more Mike hung around
But, it made him large and heavy
For, now he's heading towards the ground

There was Susan, Steven, Jimmy and Kyle
There was Sally, Kim and bill
They all came down together with Mike
as they landed on a sill

Of a cold and frosty window
on that stormy winters night
They gathered all together 
as they waited for morning light

The sun then rose above the horizon
it's light...lit up every flake
The colors that came from all Mike's friends
a rainbow it did make

The beautiful snow lit morning
left Mike nowhere else to roam
But, he was happy to be there with all his friends
as he made that sill his home

Beautiful Pain

Shes The prettiest picture…In The Ugliest Frame. 
We Turned A Beautiful Love Into A Beautiful Pain 
And There Was Never Another ..She was My Sun And My Moon. 
Soon As I Told Her I Loved Her…(She Said)…”Baby Now Your Doomed” 
There was A Time That I loved You…Thinking You Love Me The Same. 
Transformed A Beautiful Love Into A Beautiful Pain. 
And Now My Heart Is So Heavy You Couldn't Lift It With Crane. 
You Were The Sun In My Sky But Know Im Praying For Rain. 
To You Forever Meant Never…To Me True Meaning Remained. 
Our Love No Longer Distinguished cause You extinguished our Flame. 
I Vowed To Never Give Up..Cause I was Hoping You’d Change. 
How Do You Capture A Heart That Doesn't Want To Be Claimed. 
She’s The Prettiest Picture In Hideous Frame 
Know Your Intentions Insidious But still I love you the same. 
My Heart was clearly departed hoping your memory fades. 
Even Made cupid feel stupid and start to question his aim. 
I promise never again and there  is no need to explain. 
Face It…No Body wins when treat love like a game. 
  
And there was never another She was the stars and my Moon.

Rebel Girl

She doesn't believe in quiet love
wasn't born to bleed shyly,
couldn't care about the cost of conquest,

Too beautiful to be bitter, and too young to be cynical,
a cerebral seducer, a critical killer of caution,
too clever to be a casualty of competition,
the antithesis of a quiter
a warrior woman first,
the woman for whom I thirst,

When the battles are long
with the night swallowing safety
and your armor heavy
come to me with body ready,
be naked in my handsome hands
which grip your fatigued feet as if they are my clay of choosing,
sit into me in a bath of luxurious warmth, chamomile lavender calm,
Rebel Girl, happy and hugged with your back against my caring chest,
trusting my rubbing, loving my touching,
your lips moving in silent approval,

The war will return for us
testing our bruised wings of heart,
but tonight we defend this castle of loyal love
sheltered from storm and suffering  -

J.A.B.

BEYOND THE BLUE

There's a love that touches heaven
it's way beyond the blue
It travels across the ocean
it brings my soul to you
From these sandy beaches
a fiery passion within my heart
And when true love gets to you
it's going to touch every part

Oh, this is the great adventure
there's no quenching this flame
I'm bursting with excitement
at just the mention of your name
So I'm taking a dreamer's journey
going to sail across this sea
Nothing here gonna hold me back
Beyond the blue, just you and me

There's a love that's so compelling
it's beautiful and bold
It's far beyond the horizon
it's end is still untold
Allows me see your sparking eyes
smell the fragrance in your hair
When you're still a million miles
Girl, that's a love with no compare

Oh, this is the great adventure
there's no quenching this flame
I'm bursting with excitement
at just the mention of your name
So I'm taking a dreamer's journey
going to sail across this sea
Nothing here gonna hold me back
Beyond the blue, just you and me

BEAUTIFUL BLUE WORLD

I bent down 
kissed the top of her head gently 
For , I must go, 
in to the night 

This beautiful blue world 
I cannot see it all in one day 
Sails set and unfurled 
Moon, full 
Silver at play 

A kiss to last... 
A day... 
A lifetime... 
For, I must go.. 
In to the night 

On the deep blue 
As wide... 
As my heart is open 
Beautiful blue world 
I love it too 

One day at a time 
A kiss to last... 
A journey... 
As far as the heart, 
is prepared to go 
A kiss to last 
Journeys' past 

One day at a time 
This beautiful blue world 
Held in my hand 
Like a kiss... 
A set sail... 
Such things 
To my heart, 
always last

A House On the Cliff's Edge

There is a house on the cliff’s edge,
Around a quiet, unmarked shoreline
At night, the tide lifts high against a foggy moon
In the morning, gloomy clouds settle with the sea
At times, not even the birds are seen or heard
The house is left to nature’s caress

Home-crafted seashell chimes sway and sing with the wind
Crushed sand dollars lie together on the back porch
The shells were once whole, collected by the former owners
Long gone are they now, smiling with the moon
The owners are the very sound of the ocean spray,
Striking the rocks, announcing the cool dawn of day
They are not the dark, empty rooms,
The rooms that nobody thinks of as they go about their lives
The quiet owners are long gone—thought of only by one
A stillborn legacy about as tiresome as the sun,
When the clouds crisp out its beams . . .

A seawater puddle is in the middle of the dining room
Nobody knows it sits there, sinking in the floorboards
It used to be a far larger puddle after a storm,
Stealthily leaking into the house
But now it is small—so small—and the boards are moist,
Moist with its only companion amongst the instilled silence

Nobody thinks of empty, abandoned rooms
Nobody remembers the former owners
They were not much for socials and gatherings
They always lived their quiet, happy lives
Without a care of the outside world,
Far from anybody’s thought
Miles from the nearest home
Where the next generation comfortably lives 

He never finished fixing that leak . . .

Sometimes the puddle gets bigger after other storms
And when it does, there is almost life there again
You can see the chandelier reflected on the unperturbed water
As a crystal dangles and falls from on high
The dark silence following the drop is as deep as thought . . .

Nobody thinks of empty, abandoned rooms
Nobody remembers the former owners
There is merely a house on the cliff’s edge
Around a quiet, unmarked shoreline

Love Passionately

Love Passionately
To love passionately is to love freely without expectations. To love with all your heart deeply, holding nothing back giving more than one thought possible. This love excites more than any aphrodisiac known to mankind. 
To love passionately one experience’s moments of shear excitement at the thought of their true love. Loving without ever thinking of oneself, frees the mind and body to love without ever holding back. This love is deeper and has no regrets; as you never think about what if, because you just love!
To love passionately gives you such pleasure you can hardly think or breathe at times; as this love and passion just comes back to you. Loving without thought of yourself brings happiness, inner peace, and fulfillment to you along with all the passion you so freely give.

In Your Beautiful Eyes

As I look into your beautiful eyes,I see the world as i hope to see it

and that is as beautiful as your wonderful eyes are

with the holiness and glory of the Lord flowing around

with the Lord watching down on us

going through life together forever praising 

Him in your beautiful eyes!

THIS BEAUTIFUL STORY

Like others that love in haste,
and their passions go to waste...
I mustn't write end
to this beautiful story
like a sad tragedy;
I've come to the conclusion
that there are more questions
than answers that need
to be considered
and leave nothing to suspicion!

There wouldn't be a victory,
if we ran away from sincerity;
I've seen lovers lose
their chance at happiness...
all because they didn't choose
to be true and wise!

Like people unsure of themselves,
twisting words...to cover them up
with bitter  sweetness...
I musn't write end
to this beautiful story
that needs to be told intact:
to lovers who risk  everything         
with hearts so open to joy!

And I won't be satisfied until I breath
the same air that you breath,
and go through Hell to reach Heaven...
to be sure that I never be coming back!

I mustn't write end to this beautiful story; 
let these hearts  find their own glory!

The Dragon

The Dragon.

In the mountains near the land of Nord
Their lived a fiery Dragon
He had such hot and fearsome breath
Yet he kept his tail a dragging
Because he knew he wasn't bad
He was shy and that was all
And if he looked too meek and mild
Then folk would treat him cruel.

He met this little lad from Kelt
One day whilst coasting round
With fire belching from his mouth
And roaring fearsome sounds
The little lad was terrified
When he saw this thunder brute
And the dragon he was hurt indeed
As this fear he did intuit.

He said "I'm sorry little boy
But I'd not do you harm
I rasp and roar like this you know
So folk will leave me calm
I really want to be your friend
It's so lonely being me
Then the two they walked off arm in arm
It was beautiful to see.

Best Friend

I remember the very first time I saw you,
You wiped the sweat off your forehead,
I remember what all I use to say to you,
Followed my heart, I love you,
Maybe I needed to guard what I say,
Or express it in another way,
I hope I did you no harm,
Or is that what you call destiny,
Please know in your heart,
Eventhough how things played out,
My life and all its' worth,
Worth calling existing - living,
And without ever crossing paths,
My life would have been blah,
Words can not express how I feel about you,
Celebrate our love, if nothing more ever than be my best friend,
You are my very breath and hope of hearing from and possibly seeing you,
The very reason I make it through another day,
Our love we will celebrate far and away,
But in my heart, you are right here with me today,
I love you friend,
You make this world and all it contains worth living,
My heart smiles when it thinks of you,
I will somehow express my heart before I leave this earth,
So much I want to say,
I don't want to complicate things,
I just want you to be healthy, happy and carefree,
I know you love me,
You don't have to say it like I so often do,
I knew day one, 
When I became good friends to you!
I love you, boo!
I do!
Best of luck,
Live like you were dying!

A true friend

A Friend.

Associates, I’ve had so many
But let us speak of friends.
It be a term so often used
But I’m the worst of men
When it comes to picking holes in things
And a true authentic friend
He be as rare as rocking horse poo.
On a friend you can depend.

A friend would be there to the end
He’d take naught for himself
Oh yes a friend be wonderful
And adds to life much wealth
You know that when the chips are down
And the whole wide world looks grim
That friend will always be with you
His light will never dim.

This be as rare as hens teeth
But when the day does come
That you find this special friend
Your life will cheer up some
She’ll always soothe and comfort you 
And make you feel real great
A friend is someone sent to you
By the tender hand of fate

Cherish him or her so much
Cause when some-one your heart does touch
There ain’t no treasure on this Earth
There nothing that could have the worth
Of the one who loves and listens to
And gives support always to you
A true friend he till forever
He will not betray you, never!

LET US ALL SAVE PEACE

I woke watching television news
The jet plane is soaring high note
Operation Sulu is launched forth
Until the intruders to get out
Malaysia always chose to peace
Come and let us all save peace

Philippines is wanting peace
For Sulu Archipelago is its part to ease
Sulu Royal Army chose to enter because of peace
They call homeland in the book pages 
They decide to stay and die never ended
Many see this is not a good choice
But for them this is a pride to hold and take
Come and let us all save peace

For Malaysia also has to protect its state
Its sovereignty whether lives at stake
It has chosen the space to negotiate
And has given the time to withdraw in peace 
But the “intruders” is hard to take the leave
Come and let us all save peace

Many children cried
Much wives shed tears
Every Mothers weep
Their love ones died but with pride
Our prayers to put ahead their faith
Come and let us all save peace

The eyes of the world where are you?
The humanitarian aid you have to do
Don’t you see the lives are here waiting?
The civilians need your helping
Do not wait until the time lapse to nothing
Come and let us all save peace and do something.

Come and let us all save peace
Take part and let us all save peace
Pray and let us all save peace
Where are you peace activists?
Come and let us all save peace
Let us all save peace!

A beautiful sky,so red

A beautiful sky, so red 
Clouds 
Scattered as far as the eye can see 
Words cannot be said 
A beautiful sky, 
for me 

I looked up, 
to a beautiful sky, so red 
To be a cloud 
Yet, I am down here instead 

The sun painted its' colour 
beautiful and red 
throughout the sky 

A beautiful sky, so red 
melted away 
Dark blue 
Some say... 
Transformed the day, 
to something new 

The sky darkened 
Night was here instead 
To steal the light.... 
of a beautiful sky,  so red 

I have become a night 
Lost in starlight 
Onwards I sped, 
to find a beautiful sky , so red

I LOVE YOU HAPPINESS

I wanted to put myself in a space occupied by happiness
Sweet embrace of the breeze felt in the sea side of Pahut Bongao near Sanga-sanga
Everyone is happy doing the ritual of Panulak Bala’
The month to throw misfortunes that Tausug believed
Beach full of dancing waves from the sea 
Never limit the horizon of falling leaves of trees

The storm

The storm

The sky above was filled right up
With big, black, monstrous clouds
The thunder hit the blackened skies
His voice so very loud
Forked all across the morning skies
Fiery fingers streak on out
Then the thunder rumbles loud and strong
And rain is all about

Oh how that rain came teeming down
Just like it’s on a mission
To wash away the whole damned earth
As with her quiet precision
Mother Nature puts the pressure on
To warn us human souls
Of the damage she could do
With the power in her role

The rain, It pours down onto me
But I don’t feel a thing
I’m covered by my wetland gear
And my heart begins to sing
For me, I love these thunder storms
With all their mighty power
Though some on seeing all this drama
Would hide away and cower.

I Thought Of You

I Thought About You 

(My Her Story Of A Past Love)

I thought  about you and banished all doubt..
adoration projects inside out..
for  my love is a beautiful sphere void of all fear....
The sinister flees your Glen ,my robin takes flight.

I'm floating words flowing..
Darling I thought about you sweating tonight..
The solace of northeast winds lift me pass ..
For I am There with you bearing all..

I thought about you  baby through natures eyes..
lush green elms ,wildflowers..the spirit horse rides.. 
With honor and truth old soul essence abides...
Dreams blossom in timelessness..
your summer heat pressed against me..

The honey is still there from your kisses pressed against the glass..
from your temple of sound..
For I 'm a wanderer too..
I dwell pulsating in the realms of  your inner space..

Where ever I wander I do with all my heart, my soul,my being..
Forgive me my dearest,opening closing doors..
the clock ticks and alarms..

I fall , crashing our time barriers...
dizzy hissing,holding the thought of only Sean..

The birds are coming

The birds are coming
 
The birds are coming
The dusk be closing in
The evening silence, coming soon
Makes way for screeching din
Of crazy birds of pink and grey
All falling from the sky
Alighting near the feeding tray
As daylight starts to die

So beautiful, the sun shines bright
Pink feathers come aflame
As dancing, screeching, crazy  birds
Enjoying life’s sweet game
They argue as each pulling rank
Will try to get first feed
Those pink and grey galahs they be
A somewhat noisy breed.

Too soon, they’re gone
So very suddenly
They hurl themselves into the sky`
As off and flying free
They fly up to their safe abodes
Among the tall green trees
To slumber neath the starry skies
So wonderful they be.

THIS POEM IS YOU

What?
Read that
Aw, made me blush
You didn’t got my way to write a poem
Same thing I did to Lontie
That’s why I kept on asking you
Read here
Sulu Sail there
Indeed, you read it?
Yes, you know what?
I don’t know, what is it
You know the entire time that I was mocking you 
And yet you still have cornered me with your charm.
What do you think of that poem?
Charming, you really know your way to my heart no?
I love the poem I wrote because someone is inside it.
Was there any poem you have written without anyone in it?
Yes, but in this poem is only you is that someone
One poem of me then
Indeed this is the poem for you
Who has the most numbers of poems who have written about?
I mean, you have written about
No one except my life and journey
And right now this poem is you
What contains in my poems is my journey in life
But personified by moment
So to whom is that ilyimy line then?
Iloveyouimissyou that is for you!
Go, you're a flirt!
Isn’t it cute?
Lost for words as always
What do you mean?
No one has ever written a poem about me, but you.
My pleasure!

IN AN OPEN CAGE, YOU CAN FLY, NO WINGS

Today is Tuesday, 19 March, 2013 36th days, after some armed men from Sulu archipelago spotted in Tandu Wau, Lahad Datu. This caused the bloodshed between Muslim brethren. I am still monitoring the sad stories happened to our new recorded history. If this conflict cannot be resolved today what more the coming days that will pass by our way? I am always optimistic that any problems shall have its solutions but if the parties will lead to apply it. It is very hard to live where someone doubts everyone and everyone doubts anyone. It is hard to live in an open cage; you know you can fly, but you have no able wings to fly. I am praying to the lord Allah to find ways of solving the misery that both people of Sulu and Sabah are feeling right now. The remnants of colonisers continued to divide us. We are all victims. There must be no hatred spark among. We must be vigilant; there might be any other agent to hand us instruments for us to play the music and they are going to dance. Allah has all the wisdom, He is the only grantor of peace had we wish! Ya Allah please help to Let Us All Save Peace.

BLUE

Walking alone is deep.
I want to savour this nature.
I imagined this colonial structure. 

How do people live those times?
I don't mind of being under colony.
But I would fight not to be under tyranny. 

Suluk is part of Sandakan development.
William Pryer lives with them.
That modern "Jalan Pryer" is incorrect.
Coincide with the original "Jalan Praya" as it is believed. 

This building is of colonial.
That blue sky with twigs dye.
I walked alone and pass by.

Wind is blowing.
Car is horning.
I walked in the morning.
I missed this jogging. 

It's been a decade I did running.
Now I want to do it again. 
I want to achieve something.
Something is not a thing,
But a way a healing thing.

Happy Sunday for today, 
I did to jog yesterday.
I want it done every day.
I won't let that go away.

I hope so I will do it really. 
Good morning Sunday.
I love you every day.
Layag Sug!

A Race To Death

Copyright 2014 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
Poetic Lyrics By Thomas Lam Hsi


THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUE GOD...THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY...WHO ALONE CAN
SAVE FROM Satan...who plays 'all' roles...the devil...the 'Lord Jesus'...
the 'Father'...the 'Holy Spirit'...all 'Other Gods'...and 'alien gods'...HE...THE
LORD JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF IS FULLY GOD AND MAN...AND HE ALONE...
IS THE ONLY WAY TO GOD THE FATHER...and to an Actual Heaven!






If life were only played out on a race track,
Which car would you choose…Bugatti, Ferrari…or an easy death?
Can it be so simple…that you never knew, never knew me to be any…thing?
Fool…your times up…and I’m coming up…I’m coming up!

Your head’s full of problems…while I was…playing my own game!
You never knew it…never knew it…while I was playing my own game!
And I’m coming up…I’m coming up!
Fools that you were…I’m coming up…I’m coming up!

Diamonds, jewels and furs…were all you knew!
Tin cans and sodas…were all I ever knew!
And I’m coming up…I’m coming up!
In a flash of red, yellow, blue and green!
And a checkered yellow flag…to my own name…to my very own name!


And if…in my final race…it ends in a tortured flame!
I was beautiful…at last…at least…in my very own name…at least in name!


Flashing round the track…jerking all the same!
You…were coming up…you were coming up!
Humping your own ass…was the blue Bugatti…that I alone drove!
And I tore on the petro [gas]…I tore on the petro [gas]!


In time…the checkered yellow flag was only mine…only mine!
Bubbles, baubles and furs…were only mine…they were only mine!
And the scarred horror of my final crash…and the press that burned my very own bones!
To them I was beautiful…and I was beautiful…beautiful at last…at least beautiful!


As the pendulum swung at ‘haf mast…you laughed!
As my embers burned…it was my past!
You knew I died…but you lied!
‘Cuz I alone survived…as you all died!


In time...the world...surrendered...to my past...to last!
Now I...alone...am the last...the...very...last!

A Bugatti...alone...at last...a...distant...past...you were...too fast!
Now...I...alone...will forver...last...a distant past...to...live...forever...and...to last!

Memories Linger

Memories Linger
	Soft and sweet, so little and tender,
I pray again someday we’ll meet.	
Memories that seem so far away, replay in my mind again today.
Giggles sound as your tender touch is felt!
	Then and there to here and now prayers form;
bringing memories back into sight.
Soft and sweet, my little angel plays. 
Breathe it in; smells' baby soft from memories past, 
unfold and bloom!	
Until we meet again, memories forever linger of my little angel.

Princess Angelina

Princess Angelina

Princess Tinsels baby daughter
Has grown up quite a bit
And my, oh, my, she’s beautiful
Oh, she has all of it
A heart of gold, a lovely form
And she’s so full of bliss
Her name is Angelina
So very sweet she is.

She has a way with animals
That seems at times like magic
She loves all people, all of them
And when their days are tragic
She’ll give them the milk of kindness
She has the healing touch
And even gnomes and bitter demons
They all love her so much.

Angelina, she is loved
By all who hear her name
Folk they come from miles around
To see this girl of fame
One day she will be their queen
And it is plain to see
That when she takes that station on
A wondrous Queen she’ll be.

DREAM

I dreamed in a dream
I walked through an island
An island full of fruits and flowers
Its dazzling scenic view
Mesmerized me
I woke up in that dream
And the dream still a dream
But that dream is reality
Now I am eating Durian
But still a dream
Before I forget
Those flowers are you!

My Beautiful

She came in my life one year ago
Her eyelashes was long, so perfect, I know
She was the most Beautiful thing, I ever seen
And god had blessed her just for me

My first little girl, came home with me
She was smart, I could already see
She started to smile at everything
Her eyes would glow, and boy could she put on a show

Her personality was just like mine
And she would let me sleep at night,:)
Everyone in house really loved her
And she loved to play with her two older brothers

She is my new edition, and My Beautiful

darkness at noon

the blue sky turns darker
as the Sun leads the wars
against dark moons 
and dark allies
that take over our world
leaves become snakes
and theives rule the land
in the battle for days
our nights are in our hands
trees and flowers grow in sleepy cars
seas roam the galaxy seeking new ways
of light
birds fly away in search of warm blue days
and all that remains are people and wishes
of fruit, love and wisdom

JANUARY START OF NEW DAY

(1 January 2013 – 12:01AM)

By this first day of the year 2013
I am asking anyone to forgive me if I have things done that hurt you. 
I was sudden with the firecrackers
Sounds of bullets flying in the air
This is becoming a culture
That by the end and start of the year there shall be having a gun fire
Is this so not to put a gun as inutile?
I have no new year’s resolution at hand 
But I wanted to do my best to change whatever things needed to be changed. 
Oh God please witness my changes to manifest in my entire being 
from good to very good, from ordinary to extra ordinary and from evil to no evil. 
Let me love memories of 2012 that I have
Please forgive me God through everyone’s forgiveness.
I love everyone and someone. 
Thank you God!

CHILLING WITH RAIN

Chill by beach of Pitas. 
Rain comes in a heavy task. 
Return home to a break. 
Another night to medicate tired. 
Thanks Allah we intend. 
Well-intentioned we are blessed. 
Preach in the village of Rungus. 
The Maulud rejoiced.
Kota Marudu we go.
Still raining until while ago!

You are the Good: I am the Evil

You are the light of a day,
I am the darkest of grays.
You are the significant Sun,
I am the forgotten Moon.

You are the sweet make-believe dreams,
I am the tragic nightmares.
You are a glorious angel,
I am a dreary demon.

You are the bright rainbow,
I am the dull rain.
You are the boat that floats,
I am the anchor that sinks.

You are the peaceful Valley,
I am the destructive war.
You are the tame beauty,
I am the wild beast.

You are the precious living,
I am the shallow dead.
You are the glistening stars,
I am the darkening night.

You are the wonderful strength,
I am the terrible weakness.
You are the beautiful heavens,
I am the unpleasant hells.

Silent times

Silent times

Sometimes, I really do not care
About anything at all
My mind goes kind of quiet then
My mode is kind of cool
And all I really want to do
Is sit here looking in
Forgetting all the world outside
Forgetting all the din

There’s a time to send ones energy
And circle it around
But then there comes a sacred time
When the harmony is found
Waiting there within the dark
To hold one cozily
A time to be in her soft clutch
And bask there happily.

Then when the muse has been recharged
It’s time to wander back
And let the words come pouring out
Cause just along the track
The wind, the flowers and dancing trees
Have replaced the mystery
So now the words they may flow free
With much more energy.

MILD WIND

Mild wind touches my hair from the back in a ponytail. 
I removed the tie then start flying.
The wind of Putrajaya sisshing in air

Beneath the silence, 
The country's flag swinging near the lake-river,
Upon it’s a proud being.
Looking at the bridge I am seeing, 

It is like a flower in the middle morning.
The tourists of different nations here coming, 
Taking Cruise Tasik roaming around the lake, 
The man was making.

I also can see the palace of the king,
The state Selangor flag is also flying. 
I love you lake. Layag Sug!

For You

For which do I owe this pleasure 
Oh this blessed day be 
Recite the bird’s melodious song 

Greet this sleeping man from dreams 
Engulf me with his arms 
Or keep him in his slumber 
Ripples of light cascade him 
Grinning across his heaving chest 
Even the corners of the room 

Are curved into a snicker 
Let him arise to the sight 
Waiting impatiently I am
And fidgeting by his side 
Your damsel in distress 
So open your eyes 

And Great this glorious day
Not now is the time for waiting 
Dreaming of you can no longer suffice 

For I want to spend each tender moment 
On this ship of two lovers sail 
Remembering why we fell in love 
Even if we already did it twice 
Visions of this memory lane 
Entice me to stir you even more 
Read between the lines you handsome boy 

                Now wake up!

What if I never met her

I had a friend named Emily
She had to move and hurt me
Now everything in my life in dimly lit
I wish she never left, now I can’t see

Her family was there so she left
Emily was a dear person to me
Who left in one quick fluid deft
I hope she will one day help me see

I am sad she left but she had to go.
I just wish everything would light
I just hope soon she will leave to 
Come home to do what’s right

If I never met her I might be more happy
If she had left later I would be more sad
Maybe if I never met her I wouldn’t be sappy
Since she left I got more time with my dad

I really miss her and I wish she would come
Home where she belongs, I understand why
If her mom could’ve got her needs from home
They would not have left I think if they

Had a choice, but they did not
They had to move her mother had cancer
She had to go and I wish I got
My ring back, I hope she returns with Melissa

I hope one day she will return and that she will
Never leave again because when she left it really hurt 
Me and I want to her to come back and pay back her bill
To me and never leave me again and meet people named Burt

When and if she ever returns I will promise her to always be
Her friend no matter what happens, and I hope she will always
Know that no matter how hard it becomes she will always see
Who I am, When she returns I will walk with her in hallways

Blue Is As

Blueness, in water, in sky, from guitars, hearts...
all has the same quality
deep
rippling
shimmering even
Sometimes it is welcomed.
Even cherished.
Other times, it overwhelms one with its vastness
it’s darkness.

True though.
It can’t can’t be mistaken for anything else.
If looked into
you know...
you feel it
in its purest sense.
Blue quells fire
cools passion
hides things

Yet one can look in and almost see the future
if one is willing...
but it takes a strong heart to
face the blues
I mean for real
no messing around

If that willingness is there
treasures lie await
for the power of blue
matches no other.

Nature Poem

I was alone with my thoughts as I tread
deep in the heart of a forest bed
of green grass and flowers with fragrance divine
where I found a Heavenly sign...

I saw Natures Cathedral today 
A beautiful tree deep in the green 
with the sun as it's crown like I've never seen
Nature beamed on this vision of Joy...

I knelt at this alter of peace
my  prayers flowed like the waters that HE
once tread upon in welcoming home
Other lost souls just like me......

I found Natures Cathedral today 
A beautiful Cross truly sublime
like a new start in life the beginning of time
I knew that HE stood there close to me..

In Nature's Cathedral today.....

i followed you along the silent train tracks
in the dark cold rain
stepping on photographs of sunshine
watching the world wash away the graffiti of possibility
cause you promised
you pinky swore
that we are a heartbeat away from love
that we are in the way of knowin what the heart dreams
i followed you into the winters night with romance on my mind
you never told me that i would have to leave it all behind
i still believe we will find love
still believe because

Trust is Hard to Gain

How hard is it to get ahead in the this world,
When governments and societies fold
Their hands and say to everyone 
We're going through harsh times.

How does the trust of the one's in charge,
Bend laws and force opinions based
On capitalist ideals to bend the truth
To try to keep a peace beyond their grasp.

O how. O how. Can this be?
What can this destitute world now offer thee?
Regain yourself, O mighty one! Punch Forth! 
Offer the world your firstborn Son!

T'is the end of times, but you can still trust me!
There's always someone there. 
Lay down your ragged soul at last,
Your journey is at an end it seems
Lay down your trust in the only one who Beams

His Sunshine Will Offer You Rest.

My Man J.C.

Goats

Goats

They’re everywhere
These pretty little creatures
On the serpent road to Exmouth
They be some of the features
Along with Emus, Kangaroos
And handsome birds of prey
These little goats be bountiful
They’re all along the way.

They be domestic goats 
Who’ve gone back to the wilds
Where they have bred one million fold.
As one moves along the miles
These little goats be seen so much
In their many shades and hues
Don’t know where they got their water
It be tough country too.

The weather here be hot and dry
As the sun bakes everything
And mostly here no rain does fall
To drinking water bring.
And yet these goats look healthy as
Such nimble little beasts
You’d see some dead there in the road
As the crows do have their feast.

That be the price of progress
That poor beasts have to die
That be the curse of human beings
Sometimes it makes me cry
Yet still they be so plentiful
These handsome little guys
Another little part of nature
That make love in me rise.

Hera and Hephaistos

.Hera and Hephaistos.

Zeus and hera, King and Queen
Over all the Gods that ruled
In a fit of passion, one fine day
Made child, yet life was cruel
Hephaistos was an ugly child
All twisted out of shape
He walked just like a drunken man
Fun of him they‘d make.

The Goddess Hera felt a shame
In having such a child
She looked at all his ugliness
Her mind going all wild
She threw him from the mountain top
Into the deep blue sea
Yet Thetis took him down with her
For nine years there was he.

A gifted one he did become
A craftsman of renown
Forging artefacts of beauty
For the sea nymphs there to own
His anger at his Mother Hera
Was understandable
So he did work out his revenge
His plan was very cool.

He made a golden throne of beauty
And sent it to the Goddess
Who loved it, so did sit upon it
Yet though she tried her best
She could not get up from that throne
As it gripped her tightly there
She looked for someone to release her
Couldn’t find one anywhere.

They sought Hephaistros everywhere
To free his Goddess mother
And when they caught him he refused
He looked at one, the other
And told them I want Aphrodite
To be my blessed bride
Then peace made with his Goddess mother
One day he took her side.

This day when Zeus was beating her
His mother Goddess Hera
Hephaistros at his own peril
He did stick up for her
Zeus, he seized him by the foot 
And flung him from the heavens
Yet soon the two made peace again
And then peace it did reign.

The moral of this story folk
Is to tell you with respect
That your children are not there
Your glory to reflect
A child must seek his own glory
Not try to live for you
So listen to this story folk
And hear it’s wisdom true.

Dawn is breaking

Dawn is breaking

Willie wagtail in my garden 
Sings a very special song
Telling me the sun is coming
Dawn will break soon, won’t be long
It’s dark outside with full moon shining
But soon the light will show its face
Green parrot makes his bell like music
How his song has so much grace

Kookaburra, he is laughing
Something funny has touched him
Could he be laughing at us human’s
With all our wars and crazy din?
Spring is just around the corner
And all of nature seems to know
As I sit here in the morning
My world it has a special glow.

Now the world has gone all silent
Waiting for the dawn to break
Soon the chorus is beginning
Singing just for loves own sake
All the birds will join the chorus
And my heart will start to sing
How I love these life soaked mornings
Such joy to me they always bring.

Her Face

Her Face was perfection, Still see it everywhere
The beauty in her eyes, Please forgive my stare
Though to confess my love, 
Oh no, I wouldn't dare...
So I'll just keep thinking of her, But it's just not fair

Her Face won't go away, So engrained in my mind
This girl was different, Unlike any other I'll ever find
Oh how the two of us, 
How our lives could've aligned...
So now, to everyone else, My heart is blind

But she'll never know,
Just what I would've done to be with her!
That I'd gladly travel through time and space
Just to appreciate her beauty,
And wake next to Her Face

Her Face comforts me, Holds me tight and dear
Takes me to another world, A new frontier
I'm dreaming where she loves me so much, 
That part is clear...
But as I awake, Just shed another tear

Her Face and her love, I won't ever forget
Lust for her will remain, Lips will get wet
I'll be reminded of her, 
At each days sunset...
And I'll remember everything, From the first day we met

But she'll never know,
Just what I would've done to be with her!
That I'd gladly travel through time and space
Just to appreciate her beauty,
And wake next to Her Face

Her Face is the sunshine, A universal light
With it's soul and it's passion, It was quite a sight
Oh how just to see her, 
Brought me such delight...
But here I am all alone now, Another late night

Her Face will surely lift someone up, With unconditional love
So what will come of me, Can I rise above?
Without Her Face, 
I'm unsure thereof...
Because see, out of my mind, to her, I'll never shove

And she'll never know,
Just what I would've done to be with her!
That I'd gladly travel through time and space
Just to appreciate her beauty,
And wake next to Her Face

Her Face, I see it every night, In my dreams
Where everything will all align, Oh how it seems
We're walking together... 
Hands together, Along the forests blue streams

Her Face ignited feelings, Things I've never before felt
Just got to play the hand, The cruel hand I was dealt
I will always have my writing, 
To continue to dwell...
On a lost love to whom one day, I would've knelt

babe dove

All of ma life I was dying for a touch like yours.

Then u made that a reality,

U held me in ya arms,

As warm as ya touch,

ya arms were.

U Gave me a sweet tender kiss,

These made me feel at home.

 Because home is where the heart is.

Now this is where I wan spend the rest of ma days.

I don't wanna loose ya touch again.

I will hold u so dearly

And love u with all my might

Because with u I can finally b myself again

 

It feels like the doves have been set free,

So they can fly in the sky nd sing sweet melodies.

But the baby dove will come back,

For it knows that this is home,

Where it belongs

Like the morning breeze,

 which opens up the flower's petals

As they release the sweet scent of freedom nd love.

I will be there to grab the love nd freedom brought back by the baby dove,

Nd we will live by that for the rest of our days,

I will take ya hand nd keep u warm al night,

and when eva u need me,

all u have to do is call ma name,

nd I will b there to do that u desire.

For I know u are my empire,

Nd it will put a smile on ya cute face,

A smile always accompanied with warmth, truth and love,

I will always be there

To shower ya with love.

 

If m nt there to answer,

Do not cry for me,

For the Mississippi is already overflowing with water,

Ya tears will make it worse.

Be hopeful for my return,

For I will always b back for u,

Cos I will never abandon u,

I will forever b wit u

As

I have always wished and desired .

Being with u is a dream come true,

I will give ma all for u to be happy,

because happiness is all I want and desire for you....

Please smile....

Termite country

Termite Country

We’re heading north to Exmouth,
Carnarvon we’ve just passed.
We be driving up a serpent road,
As the country seems so vast.
It’s hot outside, but in this van,
The air cons on and all,
As all along the road we pass,
Little goats, so beautiful….

And everywhere, most endlessly,
There’s a billion termite mounds.
Like baked brown little mountains,
They’re everywhere around.
We stopped near one, I marveled,
That a tiny beast, and blind!
Could build these blessed monuments,
It nearly blew my mind.

I took me then some photographs
Of these engineering feats,
As I let the awe and wonder,
Into my dull mind seep.
In such a vast, still country,
In the silence of the way,
Those mounds stood out so powerful,
In the heat of a sunburned day.

HOW SHE LOVES

Life's journey long
Need for solid ground
Many rise and fall
On this merry-go-round
Not on this ride alone
My forever I've found

Oh, how she loves

She loves me true
On her love I depend
Love never end, my forever

Dark clouds come
And life rains on me
Forever holds my hand
She gives faith to see
Not on this ride alone
Together we're free

On her love I depend
Love never end, my forever

Yeah, I'm here for her.. Here for forever

Oh, how she loves

My best friend, my forever
She loves me true
On her love I depend
Love never end, my forever

Those blessed wetland trails

Those blessed wetland trails.

The sun is shining lazily
The sky is azure blue
As green leaves dance with the morning breeze
The birds be singing too
They sing a serenade of bliss
And peace is all around
As all along these wetland trails
Blue lupins can be found.

The perfume heavy in the air
It speaks of wild geraniums
The young ferns looking soft and green
And all those tall wild gums
Give out a rather pungent scent
A smell I've learned to love
As parrots screech in blissfull joy
In those trees there high above.

The lake, she glimmers neath the sun
As the ducks give lazy quacks
My feet scrape on the sand and gravel
As I stroll along this track.
Trees all gnarled and and twisted
Form a tunnel just for me
Oh I could write forever
But for now, I'll leave it be.

I LOVE YOU RATU

I am seeing your picture
I miss you
I want to hug you
It’s your fifth birthday
I want to see you
I was not granted
I am far of you

Allah knows I love you.
I love you Ratuku.
See you when you are big enough.
Sometimes I restrained not to see your picture.
I know I would be hurt of not being with you in person.
I know I am missing you so much.
I know I cannot hold you.
I know my tears would be falling.

Later you will understand
You will understand why we are apart
You will understand why I am held not to see you
You will understand why you are taught to hate me
You will understand why when you hear “Ayah” you feel fearful
You will understand why I love you so much

I love you and see you later if not soon.
I love you Anakku.
And you know that I love you!

A beautiful sky,so red

A beautiful sky, so red 
Clouds 
Scattered as far as the eye can see 
Words cannot be said 
A beautiful sky, 
for me 

I looked up, 
to a beautiful sky, so red 
To be a cloud 
Yet, I am down here instead 

The sun painted its' colour 
beautiful and red 
throughout the sky 

A beautiful sky, so red 
melted away 
Dark blue 
Some say... 
Transformed the day, 
to something new 

The sky darkened 
Night was here instead 
To steal the light.... 
of a beautiful sky,  so red 

I have become a night 
Lost in starlight 
Onwards I sped, 
to find a beautiful sky , so red

Let There Be Sunlight

“Let There Be Sunlight”

What happened to my world.
Everything is gone now.
Step by step, down into darkness.
Away from clouds, water, sky.
From all that lives and thrives.
From that which fed me,
now I am served up poison.

My spirit is offended
I mourn.  Too much.  Too much.

Doing every possible thing
to keep eyes open, mind sharp.
Protect myself again.
Hold myself sacred.
No matter the insult to my dignity.
My intelligence will go down with me, I’m afraid.
I’m trying so Very Hard.

Let there be sunlight at dawn
and I’ll count the stars
If only I could touch compassion again.
True and pure.  Will I be able?
I will lovingly share all that I possess
Let me live in That World again
for it is a holy place and is
that from which I was born.
So shall I take up a pen and paper
til the day I can longer write words…

My Ship

MY SHIP	
I have a ship.
A beautiful ship!
Big and brown 
With white sails and a mast that touches the sky from ground.
With a dock that could hold ten thousand sailors
As they work
Yet I am not the captain of my ship 
My ship captains me

I have a ship
A beautiful ship
I named her Olivia
After my uncle’s wife
She was a good woman 
Who lived a virtuous life
My ship rocks me back and forth like a chair
When I am in despair
Then I lie in the gentle arms of Morpheus
It is obvious
I was asleep
My ship whispers into my ears
My son it is well
Or was it the wind?
I cannot tell
I observed the night skies 
With my naked eyes
While sitting on the deck of my ship
And each star tells a different story
Some of the fall of men
And others of their glory

I have a ship
Though I am not her captain
And every voyage I take
I get younger for certain
As if I was baptized in the Youth’s fountain
On my way back
I stumbled on a giant named Jack
Who threatened to destroy my ship!
But he could not
We fought
And his might could not match mine
As he thought

I have a ship
An enchanted ship
That can grant men what their heart desires
An immortal ship that cannot be destroyed by fire
Except she burns herself
In a funeral pyre
To make way for a younger and newer ship
My ship thinks and feel like a man
Even bust into laughter
When I tell her a story about Peter Pan
A young man who refuses to grow
Flies like a sparrow
And crows

I have a ship
A beautiful ship 
Sometimes I feel I am not the captain of my ship
My ship is flung around by the tempest at sea
My ship says to me
Just let it be
Soon the angry waves will abate
You just have to wait
For in destiny lies
Destiny’s eyes
Which knows and control the fates of men
And then
Sometimes I know 
I am not the captain of my ship
I work hard but money starts to slip
With plans made and prayers prayed
I know I will be the captain of my ship

THE TALE OF A FOREST LEAF

On a summer day
The Queen and her Faeries
Went out to play
Amongst the whispering trees

So much joy to be found
Amongst the Whispering Trees
To hear bird sound
The red squirrels chattering in the canopies

All the trees were in full leaf
So many different shades of deepest richest green
With a blue sky above
Golden sun
A forest, filled with love
The beauty to be seen

Forest Faeries could be heard up high
Amongst the green leaves
Watching summer clouds passing by

They called down to a Summer Queen
Who was walking down below
“We have special gift for a King”
“Please accept this beautiful thing”
“From all of us so”

A beautiful leaf fluttered down
Greens and golds
Reds too
A beautiful leaf
In the shape of a heart, true

“A leaf”
“A leaf”
They called from above
“For a Kings’ cloak”
A leaf that would never die
Its’ colours would match seasons
A leaf from the forest faeries
Who live in trees, so high

The Summer Queen
Did know
Blessed all around
The leaf, she took
For a leaf of deepest, richest colour
Was perfect for a Kings’cloak
Tonight she would sew
a surprise

The kings’ cloak was called for
A Summer Queen sewed on the leaf
A King, the proudly wore
For, it shone with love
A gift from the Forest Faeries
and Whispering Trees

When the Earthen King died
The Summer Queen took
The very leaf, from his side
Blew on it softly
A sweet westerly breeze
Returned the leaf
To the whispering trees

A leaf of deepest richest green
mourned a King
The tears of the Summer Queen
Love and magic
Fulfilling
The Whispering Trees
Took the king,
and made him part of everything

from a father to be

I grew up without a father,
never dealing with it inside
only getting used to the absence
bt the lack did not subside.
i never learnt to fix whats broken
never learnt to be a man
never learnt to swim or sail
never thought i really can.

My father left me only fear
that i was now incompetent
to be the father he was not
to have a child, im hesitant.
But still hope withers not away
that i could be so blessed one day
to hold a gift given by God
and live to have a family.

My father left me only fear
that i might abandon my own
but children i hold very dear
and wish they not be left alone,
to fend for themselves without the guide
but have a father to be shown.
To those who, appreciate
your fathers heart, its not too late
this day is just a reminder,
 that those who have fathers
life treated kinder.

The mustard seed

A mustard seed

Our savior told a story
In his usual way
He tried to make folk understand
As he did on many a day.
He said with voice all soft and calm
“What be it like? God’s heaven
What story can I use today
How can I tell you then?”

“It be like what happens then
When a mustard seed
Is planted there beneath the soil
It be so small indeed
“And yet” he said “once it be planted
So large the tree does grow
And spreads its branches all around
Gives shade where birds can go”

Our Lord, he used these stories
When he did talk to folk
And all that then could understand
They gained from words he spoke
He told folk naught without these stories
Yet to his twelve disciples
He explained then everything
To them he told it all.

LOVE ANSWERS

Am I ok to be dull, 

Is it fine to be without 

YOU AND STILL SHINE.?

Will I be a joyful

memory in your mind.

I asked:

TRUE LOVE SAYS IT'S 

okay to be happy

apart from me.

Never replace my 

joyous gift with grief.  

In the spaces or gaps.

Your light should

fill- in, removing,sadness,

with a "well lived life". 

He expressed:

Be happy ,with me-

or apart from me;

Love wouldn't have it  

ANY-OTHER WAY.

He reiterated:

What's Understood;

needs no explanation

He said:

What kind of man would I be,

IF I REJOICED IN YOUR 

MISSING ME.

KNOWING,that

I may never return. 

He spoke again:

You have taught me that happiness 

and all of it's glory will never die.

And sadness lingers on for ever. 

Said I:

Away from you by

death or by distance.

Will still leave me responsible

for your smile.

From the brightness of your smile;

Everyone will be aware, that it be I  

who put it there- 

Even after years have passed

You with your new love,

Alas !

It  would be me that left you

"Glowing"

He reported: 

All the records will be

set straight and show,

That I was the man

"who brought out the best in you-

made joy in the depths of you".

He chanted:

I then realized my joy could never

subcomb to sadness again;

Neither to death- nor poverty -

not time- nor distance.

So I will rejoice when you come,

I'll live off the memories

your endless joy has brung.

So until you come again, 

I will smile and illuminate

the days so brightly.

So bright... that even the next man

will praise your ways

and ask me to share the secret of your magic 

I shall live in memories of happy days;

In the cheerful thoughts of men.

 Final # episode of love

How I met the blues

How I met he blues

I remember as a kid
I loved the Presley stuff
I listened to his wondrous songs
And could not get enough
But then I heard him sing this song
The greatest song I’d heard
It was a song all filled with blues
I hung on to every word.

“Well that’s alright Mama”
I heard old Elvis sing
It filled my heart and touched my soul
Such joy to me did bring
Then I knew that I was hooked
I loved those blues, did I
They seemed to melt into my soul
I’ll love them till I die

I’d listen to old Muddy
And Buddy, and Freddie too
And little Walter on the harp
And many more Blues men too
So I’d like to thank old Elvis
For showing me the way
To the greatest music on this planet
I love it more each day

True Beauty

Intro
It is said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, there is only one I behold as the 
one beautiful enough to see the true beauty within.

I
I wish that I could tell her how I feel
I wish that I could show her I'm for real
I'm going to give her all that she would need
Listen to my story and take heed
II
The sun may rise, the sun may set
The power of her beauty they will never get
Many have tried without any rest
To obtain the beauty that she possess
III
She has the smile of a baby
But the soul of a lady
She is in search of that perfect love
The only one that comes from above
IV
When I look into her eyes, I can see the pain
Wherever she looks, it just seems to rain
But through every situation she has stood tall
And kept herself from a great fall
V
Some may ask if she is real
Can one be this perfect without a seal?
To know the truth of what I've seen
Just look in the mirror to know what I mean
VI
We have held hands throughout the years
We have also shed many of tears
One thing that I am proud to see 
You have become a beautiful woman to me

The lovely Libran

The lovely Libran

Indecision dogs her trail
She’ll always change her mind
Her sense of wonder is so vast
She’s tender and she’s kind
Creative in the way she lives
Her whole life is an art
She can be lazy sometimes too
But she has a lovely heart.

She loves to dress herself in style
Immaculate is she
She’ll always be the peacemaker
For she can’t bear to be
In any kind of situation
Where ugliness is seen
She hates hassles very much
And hates those who are mean.

One to one relationships
She needs them in her life
She needs to have a partner
Or to be somebodies wife
She likes to be surrounded by
Pure beauty everywhere
She weighs her scales so carefully
And always she is fair.

a quiet freedom

Have you ever found yourself....
in a place you didn’t understand.
That had nothing to do with
your “real” life?

Then, memories rush back.
Ahh, everyone’s gone now
either from this earth
or they didn’t want to follow me

Through more of my trials and tribulations
or more mood swings and blood
I guess the life of a Manic Depressive
takes a different road than most.

Dramatic, unexpected choices
that threatened friend’s own marriages
“She’s so bold as to leave her husband for love”
and then it actually worked out

“Now she’s in Seattle”
“Wow, she just left her kids”
Assumptions were consistently made
with no grounds whatsoever

They didn’t know
that I was so vulnerable, I allowed myself to be Placed here.
and that I was so stuck, I couldn’t get myself out.
My heart ached, yet nobody asked me.  Nobody knew.

It’s time to go now.
My window of opportunity.
As vulnerable as ever,
But more desperately needing....

I want Me again
with choices
needing to know it’s still possible
to be out from under and be free.  For once.  
Nobody knew .  But I did.

The wind

The wind can speak to us, it whispers soft things in our ears. 
Saying sweet things, it eases us giving us security. 
Brushing our hair behind our ears.
The wind seems to comfort us, when no one else can. 
But then, just as it started out so sweet it turns dark and violent. 
All of a sudden the wind yells at us, it degrades us.
No longer is our hair gently swept behind our ear, but pulled and yanked.
No longer is it comfort but now the wind brings us pain, 
The wind has seemed to change.
Maybe this was never wind, but our imaginations way of coping,
Our very own façade, perhaps we compared this man to the wind,
So we could get away, we could create an alternate outing.

LAYAG SUG

I have not seen this sea, which you 
speak of so fondly every once in a while.

but I'd hear the slowed-down breathing,
the long pause
when you tell stories of old people 
that died, of brave men that once 
sailed with their boats
to cross vast continents
and trade,
and then sail again for home
where they’d find their wives and children
waiting for their return.

You are still out there sailing,
and I am here 
hoping you'd reach home soon.
I know where that home is.
But you have to fight to get there.
I could wait for centuries
and be still until 
you're home finally. Don't fret.  
Sail, love, wherever that sea 
with its raging current  
takes you.

And when you reach shore,
You'll find me there standing,
waiting for you.

1 STARFISH

SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE I'M ONE BIG BEAUTIFUL STARFISH
DYING TO GET TO THE BEACH
TRYING TO FIND MY PASSION 
OR FIND THE TREASURE BENEATH
SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE A STARFISH MISSING ALL OF THE BEAUTIFUL SAND
SOMETIMES I FEEL SO ALONE,AS IF I HAVE NO TRUE FRIENDS
SOMETIMES I FEEL SO ALONE AND I FEEL LIKE IM A STARFISH AWAY FROM HOME
IN A DESSERT WHERE I DON'T BELONG
WANTING TO GET BACK TO THE OCEAN
WANTING TO BE EXACTLY WHERE I'M SUPPOSED TO BE
WANTING THE COURAGE TO JUST BE ME
BUT I GUESS I HAVEN'T MUSTERED UP ENOUGH COURAGE TO JUST ACCEPT
THE TRUTH
THAT I'M NOT A STARFISH,I AM A CHILD OF GOD
AND I CAN START SOMEHTHING GREAT NO MATTER HOW OUT OF PLACE I FEEL
I'M GOD'S CREATION,I AM HIGHLY FAVOURED
SO I WILL LOVE MYSELF 
AND LOVE MY NEIGHBORS
AS MY GOD COMMANDED ME TO DO SO
AND STAY IN DAILY DEVOTION
AND THIS LITTLE STARFISH
CAN GO BACK TO THE OCEAN

The Moment

The moment I saw you
Only for a few minutes
Of the site I see
Never realizing my life
Would change for the better of me

My heart was running full speed
Not being aware again
We only had an hour to spare
I know this may sound weird 
But this moment was the day
I got my life on track close to the end

I knew I fell madly in love
When my eyes connected with yours
Standing face to face
It felt like something had fell
Out of heaven from above

This has hit me so hard
Knocking me off my feet
Feeling I need a few minutes to breathe
Only time and space can give
Cause I sense my love running
So much deep

Somehow for that brief moment
You completely blew my mind
In my eyes seeing two different people
With two different personalities
Seem to have different life styles
But only one heart which were completely stolen
In that only one moment
During that one beautiful sunny winter morning

I knew I fell madly in love
When my eyes connected with yours
Standing face to face
It felt like something had fell
Out of heaven from above

That day I knew I had to see you
Only I didn’t know how or when
My heart started beating fast
When you said it was nice to meet you
I hope we can meet again
Wow it was like a blur
You caused my mind to stir
The ground started to spend around
Only I knew I couldn’t make a sound
All I could do was to catch my breathe
So I decided to take a seat and have a rest

I knew I fell madly in love
When my eyes connected with yours
Standing face to face
It felt like something had fell
Out of heaven from above

Oh my gosh what have you done to me
I once was caged
But now your words have set me free
I didn’t know how to react
With these feelings so bright
Only I know I dream of you
Each and every night

I never thought someone would look at me 
The way I see myself in your eyes
I never knew how my movement would change
With you in this life time
I never felt this fire burning inside of me
Nor I never felt this wetness between my thighs
If this feels like love I never want it to end
Cause finally knew the moment
When my life started to begin

The Albatross

THE ALBATROSS
Under thunder blows a colder wind, across an endless sea,   
Like a voice from the call of a far off shore in the solitude we perceive; 
For ago remained an innocent age, torn away by a thousand years
Where sincerity alone is tied to its own majestic grace;
But flow on the bluest waves over the oceans deep and wide   
Waiting long for things abandoned

Forsake those condemned to the early dawn, far past ten thousand year’s,
Still in all its silent symmetry, flies by a bird on wing;
Mysterious seemed that outstretched arm, in all 10 feet in span                                   
Grasping what came from the east, bound to rays of light; 
For seas are blessed by both good and bad 
Waiting long for what’s abandoned  

Fifty years is doomed to its own intent, lost in its own emotion,
While all that we can hold, is a time fifty thousand past;               
Come see what waits is a soul possessed, holding a daylights passage 
Where what seemed lost is an albatross, staring through its blacker eyes; 
But all we see is the bluest sea, left under tomorrow’s sky
Waiting long for things abandoned

Crashes still those crystalline waves, warmed by spring’s rebirth, 
Until we see an albatross, departing as the seasons change;
And a hundred thousand years escapes, slips away from time and place
Bound to the cliffs and bound to the rushes of a land so far away; 
For over the bluest sea, is the sunlight that we seek
Waiting long for those things abandoned      

Surrounded is he who waits in the shadow, lost to the rhythm we’ve created,
While somewhere stands an albatross, and drinks its salted wine;
For now is past a million years, gone to the mystery of life
Lost in the worth of simplicity and the innocents of desire;
But now the bluest sea is calm, with no sign of what is past
Waiting long for things abandoned
                                                                        
Escaped the thought of an albatross bound to the symbol of its virtue,
Leashed to the seas and the sound of the waves, longing a far off shore; 
Hold on to the meaning of our vision, past ten million years 
And hear the call of an albatross, its beauty and its wonder;
For here we see the bluest sea, in a land of lost intent
Waiting long for those things abandoned

Always thinking of you

Not being able to forget the  wonderful,
enduring love i have for you.
A graceful head turning hip- hop
Dancer always turning heads wherever you go,
it usually makes me want to melt like snow,
Now that your gone 900 Miles away,
 my heart is always and forever thinking of you,
Praying that I'll get to see you soon.

Feeding time

Feeding Time

Those birds sit in the Banksia tree
They wait there silently
Then every now and then these guys
They screech on out to me
The trays are empty down below
There ain’t no seed to eat
And so they call on out to me
And give to me some heat.

I run outside and fill those trays
Like every day before
Those Guys they watch me from the tree
They’re smart birds that’s for sure
I do my job and move away
Then they dive bomb through the air
All squabbling and a bickering
And fighting for their share.

The big boss Coccy I call him Fred
He seems to run the show
He calls the shots, he always  does
He’ll always let them know
That he’s the boss and with his spouse
{]I call his misses June}
They feed alone on one seed tray
But they be finished soon.

Then all the parrots crash on down
Doing wheelies in the sky
A screeching and a carrying on
Oh lord, they’re noisy guys.
Then when they’ve finished feeding
Well suddenly they’re gone
They fly so crazy through the air
Oh how they carry on.

minds eye

just thought id say something
before she gives up
before she surrenders
to all the darkness that hungers for fresh meat
my own road is stained
just barley doin my own version of living
just getting down to a rhythm to the madness
why screw it up
why get down with a harder road
'cause i cant silence that quiet place in my heart
i cant shut off the place in my minds eye
where i can see the consequences
so i reach out my hand
no real trouble at all
just a moment outa my time
but i can feel it make changes on her sea's
i can see it making waves in her uncharted
join me
grab a hand
there is a world full of people who
need even just a hand to hold in the dark of night

I'M TRYING TO WALK ON WATER
BUT I CAN FEEL A STORM RISING
I CAN SEE THE SAVIOUR ON THE WATER SMILING 
BUT I DOUBT HIM AND START CRYING
HE SAID KEEP YOUR EYES ON ME
AND JUST KEEP ON SEEKING
I GET SO DISTRACTED
START PANICKING
AND BEGIN SINKING
HOW DID SHAME MAKE IT'S WAY INTO MY MIND?
HOW DID I ALLOW SHAME AND FEAR TO DOMINATE MY TIME?
HOW DID THIS IDENTITY MAKE ITS WAY INTO MY SOUL?
ALL OF MY PRIDE AND DIGNITY
SATAN STRATEGICALLY STOLE
NOW I'M BENEATH THE SURFACE
TRYING TO RISE UP FOR AIR
PEOPLE PASS  ME BY 
AND THEY SEEM FREE
AND TO ME IT'S JUST NOT FAIR
THEN JESUS BOLDLY SPOKE TO ME AND SAID DO NOT DARE COMPARE!
THE ONLY TIME THAT YOU DARE DROWN
IS WHEN YOU ACT LIKE I'M NOT THERE
AFTER HE SPOKE THAT TO ME
I WAS IN PEACE
AND MADE THIS CONCLUSION
THAT ALL OF MY FEARS
AND UNMERITED SHAME
IS REALLY JUST AN OPTICAL ILLUSION
BUT JESUS CAME AND WARNED ME THAT UNTIL I REALLY BELIEVE HIM FULLY
THAT I'LL BE HARASSED AND TAKE SET BACKS FROM SATAN,THAT DISTRACTING BULLY.
BUT GOD SAID CHILD THIS IS JUST A SMALL CHAPTER IN A PORTION OF YOUR LIFE
THEN HE SAID EVERYTHING WILL END SO NICE 
WHEN YOU STAY FOCUSED ON MY SON,CHRIST.

I can only see you from a story.
I can feel your face physically in the air.
Drawing, laminating and framing with pride.
The pride that keeps you firm up high. 
I will stand to defend you. 

The truth shall be my weapon. 
The enemy will never win.
Stand firm my hero. 
My beloved swishing blade
sculptured in my heart. 

As my point of loving you
love you like Rasulallah
that Allah has commanded every man.

Keep going my beloved warrior of the high seas.
Your name is eternally inscribed in the Luh Mahfuz.
You are the people of the path.
Walk through that path firmly.

AWAKE THEM, LOVE

I have fallen crazy madly deeply in love..
How many times I tried but failed..
How many times I take risks yet I was wronged..
So, I did cry and feel so hurt...

Whispered by my mind: "stop & take care"
this Stubborn heart rejects and says: "find your pair"..
I must stand follow a strong will..
Not round up nor down like a wheel..

Undefinable; unexplainable love..
how you been?
Where have you been?
share to me not be trashed in bin..

a lot needs and wants you..
yet few shows a genuine you..
soothers and enlighteners of blues..
shoving all worries and woes..

nowadays, in world full of gloom
won't you mind to flourish and bloom?
spring out to everyone's aura and mood..
pleading you to cure all wounds..

the road never ends

Love
the way I knew it
was childlike, pure and crystalline.
It was tear-apart lust, down to the ground
and take what you need and give back too.

Things glowed gold
when I went out.
Actually different, a softness, a gentleness
about them.

Hands in prayer blessed above us
our bodies encased in blue...
We served Gods and Goddesses
and it was church and everything.

The light in his eyes
sparked mine which brightened his
our lips sealed kisses of sheer magic.
From another universe this was....

He told me.  He said
you kiss me the way I always wanted to be kissed.
I told him that was funny
because he kissed me that way too.

One morning as he lay there,
he asked that if there is a next time around
could we please be 17 when we meet?  
Then, we could have a lifetime together

I wanted for nothing more.
And grasped him strongly 
and we were one.
There was no difference at those times.

Oh, how my heart and body ache
for that love, that man.
Even a golden vision of him for just 10 moments
of how it used to be before.......

If one could put life on a reel
and turn it backwards a while
because Now you Really know what it all meant
Now, you Really Would hold tighter, because you know it will end soon.
But people, like things, have an expiration date.  But my heart keeps beating.

Queen Of The Heart Breakers

She ripped it out my chest and she help it up before my eyes.
I thought our love was pure but just a lure that brought my sure demise.
Broken by design as obsession left my heart confined.
Some say that love is blind but silent cries are never heard at night.
There used to be a time i would have saw our hopes and dreams combined.
But secretes love to hide til its time to see 2 stars collide.
I thought that you were mine for forever so i ignored the signs.
Seek and you shall find someone adored became someone despised.
We walked a chosen path to be together til the end of time.
But It was simple math subtracted passion equals hearts divide.
Beautiful disasters have a master they can not defy.
How can i trust the sun when every night it leaves the moon 2 die.
The Non existent rules of right and wrong applied to u and i.
I knew what this would cost me but i decided it was worth a try.
So many kings have fallen without ever even knowing why.
She goes around collecting hearts but i wont let her leave with mine.

HEART SINGS LISTEN TO IT

I am trying to read a heart.
To read it from a pair of beautiful eyes.
Nothing that I can see.
Only a heart alone can see.
There is a heart I can hear. 
Singing along in a tiny voice I feel.
A whisper from it makes me smile.
A smile that eternally lives in the heart.
A memory to remember. 
I love you, peace.

I love the Singer in an All Girl Band

I love the Singer in an All Girl Band 
Loch David Crane, 1976

I dreamed about  'ya in your pixie shoes
and watched ‘ya stomp on all my blues;
I dreamed about 'ya in your fishnet tights
and how ‘ya kept me up all night.

I dreamed about 'ya next day too      
when my mind should'a been on school.
I dreamed about ‘ya in your leather skirt
‘til my heart began to throb and hurt.

I dreamed about 'ya at a biker dance,
a third leg grew inside my pants.
I dreamed about 'ya and what I’d do
if I could go to bed with you---

But you don't know me an' I think it's true
that I could never succeed with you.
I may as well make other plans
'cause I love the singer in All Girl Band.

My heart is locked in my rib cage
prisoner of a new-wave age; 
the only way to set it free
is if you will make love to me.

I've seen the future-- it's black and blue
from random violence, dancin' too;
but that is where I'll have to stand
'cause I love the singer in All Girl Band.

Eastern Tortured Body

I produce old silk flags to undulate the mist-
I”m just another Torturated Body from the East
I take the Medicine and try to resist
among Big Mammals, fighting with a spoon
I put one foot on the Moon for a catatonic walk
and the other foot on the street
to sustain the back
under a yellow skirt
wearing an orange shoe
that gives a great stability
by throwing out sweet glue.

Fairy Tale Hearts

I don't know much but I know this feeling very well.

You make me believe everything I've heard in fairy tales.

If Loving you is sinning then im grinning on my way 2 hell.

Some day the world will end but my love for you will never fail.

This is my obsession slash confession so my fate is sealed.

Every single second is a blessing that my soul can feel.

If Loving you a crime I plead guilty and I won't appeal.

Lock my heart away like a secrete that you cant reveal.

Trust is built with time by design till every single doubt is killed.

Just Like Women

A brave and courageous knight,
Dressed in shining Armour,
 Was a feast to the eyes,
Of young and beautiful women.

And this was exactly what happened,
To the great Knight of Cotenbury,
Whose head was held high,
And who walked with the royal stride.

Oh,but what a disappointment was it,
To those young and beautiful maidens when they found out,
He was already married,
To one of the most beautiful princess!

LONELINESS KNOWS ME BY NAME

Since that black cruel night of argument
You left me by the bridge of nothingness
loneliness had been my friend and companion.
He knows me by my name,
We play and chat together in the dark
Room filled with the terrible voices 
Of an unfinished business between us.

Loneliness keeps me company every now and then 
In the lonely street of my heart filled with your presence.
It turns and toss my humble heart like a boat on a stormy oceans.
Why do i let go of you when my heart seek you.
You left me with sadness, guilt and sorrow
Under the hot sun, i sob and cry of you.
Silence mock me and emptiness laugh behind
Those roses you kept in the vase.
I have map out my heart lane on my wall for you 
You can retrace your steps back to my heart .


Forgive my ignorance of your heart beat 
The non verbal communication i ignored,
I can make it up to you 
Now before the night falls.

SHE DRIVES ME UP THE WALL

SHE DRIVES ME UP THE WALL

She drives me up the wall like a slave-driver
O yes, she does ! but even though she may wield 
the rod in her hand ever so threateningly at me 
At the slightest suspicion of insubordination, 
Leaving me cowering with fear, I love her just the same, 
Perhaps much more than I ‘ve ever loved anybody else before! 
I may ‘ve become certifiable as a result, who knows, 
But whatever the case may be, 
pray don’t judge me harshly until you ‘ve heard me out.

I love her for the same farcical reason that Socrates
Ostensibly loved that cantankerous woman Xantippe.
By temperament and upbringing, I find a woman who 
Stands up to a man much more appealing than one 
Who’s obsequious and complaisant!
What happened to me, therefore, was no accident but a 
quantum leap; I had no control what so ever over the turn of events
That got us this far in our fledgling relationship.
Ever since I met her, my life, which had hitherto been
Fairly peaceful and uneventful, has, all of a sudden,
Taken a dramatic turn.

And like a minx, she has so turned my head around
I can’t tell for certain whether I am coming or I am going!
Suffice to say I’ve been acting up silly and rather foolishly
For a grown up person (I don’t know whether or not I still
Have any semblance of an ego left, what with this 
Attractive je ne sais quoi I find so irresistible about her!)
Oh no, don’t tell me I’ve been doing this all for the
Wrong reasons ! or that I am laying it on thick.
It’s only me who knows exactly what I am feeling.
Besides, I am not talking morals here, I am talking
About what it feels like to love somebody to a fault.
If she did walk out on me now I can guarantee you
That would certainly be the death of me!
I am sure that’s not what you would all like 
To see happen to me just yet unless of course
You’ve been spoiling for my death while pretending to be my friends.
When all else is said and done, I’d rather be
Henpecked than let go of this maverick specimen of womankind
Who has lodged herself in my life uninvited,
Making it her home, and has since then never failed
To drive me up the wall like a slave-driver with her rod.
Not only is she good sport, but like a morning
Star she’s such fun to be with, I promise you!

Mistress Mare

A thing that is vast, but somewhat obscure.

Full of wonders, there is no doubt to be sure.

Glistening blue under the daylight sky.

You dream of seeing it and traversing it, but why?

Over its horizons, many lands can be seen,

Its wonders a mystery and its beauty serene.

Full of life, a new world found below

Movement is different here, more graceful and slow.

But be cautious of this grand expanse,

For she does much more than sway and dance.

Lives she can claim when she is angered and scared,

overwhelm all who cross her, many vessels ensnared.

Take heed when you cross her path,

Or you will be next to endure her wrath.

Crushed and swept under her mighty hand,

Her cold embrace you must withstand.

Perpetual she is and transient is her rage

But once you fall under, she will be your cage.

treat her well and traverse her with care

Or suffer the ocean, The great Mistress Mare

ART IS MORE THAN MEDICATION

A creative artist would be
If is given a chance to explore more possibilities
Art is not lovely but a love of life
Channeling art for higher service
Would be great one and good one
Indeed. Art is more than medication
Let us lead the way
Let us sail together all the way
Art of sailing is happiness every day
It touches the way you feel
The thing you think
The emotion you say
And the companion you have!

old harold and the moon's echo

4am sunday morning they broke into song
unable to contain their smiles
they cast aside the spent wine
and took their ribald song to the streets
with a fanfare of sound and light
like jesters of old
they painted smiles on the frowning old men
and placed rainbows over the bridges between
the carpets of the mighty and the halls of fable

by 5am they had made it all
the way in to the center of town
where a roadblock of uniforms thought to make sense
out of tealeaves and mint cookies
as the jesters just dance around their confusions
between their orders and
what the truth of the heart tells em is the song
and then we see the ugly show a pretty eye to the cause
as it marches in through the double dawn
one dawn for the sun
the other for the hearts of the lonely
and a secret one for me and her
in our lounge chairs by the top of the spike hill
kissing our sweet hearts to eachother

by 10am all but the most die-hard had fallen to dreaming sweetly
neath the juniper trees
while thouse few who clung to awakened hearts
sang softly and sweetly
of summer nights and fresh loves
unearthed from the ashes of the desperate pasts
all things made anew from all the things made old

by sunday evening
we had all danced all the dances
and kissed all the kisses till even the heat of passion couldn't fade
held eachothers hands
and smiled sweetly like memory's saying fare thee well till morrow
i would be crazy if it weren't for your hand in mine
here in the tropical sundown

sunday night so deep
and the only one left dancing is old harold
he's doing the charleston with the moon's echo on the waves of the sea
don't think he's ever been so happy
and as i drift off to sleep
with her in my arms
i know that i don't need to explain to anyone
that we are all jesters looking for a
song to dance to at 4am in the tropics

Love You Now

There will never be another forever your my queen. (now)

Honored 2 b your King  an protector of your dreams. (now)

Your love is so addictive got me feeling like a fiend. (now)

Now I know how Adam felt the first time he saw eve. (wow)

Your beauty is so divine the human mind cant conceive. (now)

Every kiss is bliss I'm convinced ill never leave. (now )

Kreta Natur, the Heart of Hersonnisos

The heart of Hersonnisos, the Isle of Crete
In a place so full of allure
Up on a hill, in the midst of the sea
Lies the heavenly Kreta Natur
 
The beautiful gardens, the flowers and trees
Rockeries made from stone
Views that will bring a tear to your eye
All give you the feeling of home
 
Side by side, Maria and George
Together they work as a team
So many years of labour and love
It’s taken to build their dream
 
Nurtured and tended by loving hands
Such relaxation you feel
When you arrive, the lovely warm smiles
And welcome they give you is real
 
Marias cooking, so lovely to taste
Her chicken, the best as of yet
BBQ night prepared by George 
Is one you will never forget
 
But…one thing is true, when your holiday’s done
And you know that its times to fly
Year after year you will always return
So it’s never really goodbye…


For George and Maria...amazing people and the perfect hosts
Thank you..

Poet's Own Notes:

A Terrific Song, "I'll take you there."

sex's butter

awkward girls delivering their spoken thoughts
like hand written love notes
perfumed hopes cherished brightly
one of a hundred that stand at the edge of reality
and in the near perfect unison of dropping lovely invitations
to the magazine advertisements man who is supposed to
sweep them off their feet
the manly man who has button down eyes
and a wrinkle-free shirt
to him sex's butter is romance

her temperature dog
haunts her lonely steps
with a eager wag of his ratty tail
his pleasant eye wagers that she will return him for the deposit someday
its for the girl who has everything and a box of candy too
its not in what you have but its measured by how much you reject
sex's butter tastes salty sweet
she has a sidewinder viper gently cradled in her arms
calls it the child of her destiny

sex's butter is her bed and breakfast
an empty conversation
like a small hole in my mind
spilling its useless phrases to be swallowed whole
in the tepid sea of her eye
her hollow laughter two tables away
suddenly as it comes it limply dies away

alarmist by nature
she crafts a tale of woe
to suit her mind
but that tale is an empty eyed charter boat fish
that lay barren and objectified on her dinner plate
basted in sex's butter with a twelve inch whip...

Along By The Shore

Together on the beach, laying with you
Holding your hand, gazing up at skies of blue
Though our time together is ending, oh how it flew
We both know girl, how our love was true

Young hearts together, without a care
The love in her eyes
The sand in her hair
Beauty like I've never seen before
We're loving each other, Along By The Shore

How will things be when we're apart
It's time to depart, tell you it's a new start
Lets lay here forever with you in my arms
I'm falling so hard, falling hard for your charms

Young hearts together, without a care
The love in her eyes
The sand in her hair
Beauty like I've never seen before
We're loving each other, Along By The Shore

Now I wonder if she can hear me
Hear my calls to her, my cries
Oh how I fell in love
With her blonde hair and brown eyes
And I remember those nights Along By The Shore

Soulmate's

Like a breath of fresh air 
you breathe new life into 
me.

Picture an ocean wave 
upon the shore, your 
love brings me hope...

Energizes me like a storm.

Why is it we can't be apart ?

Could it be we share more 
than just love ?

As true as the sky is blue,
not a cloud in the sky could 
ruin you.

Your beauty captured in an 
essence of light that shines 
so bright, you keep me safe 
and warm all night.

Look deep into my eyes, 
a reflection of you.

Could this be...

Two people who feel the 
same, can't be apart no
matter the day.

Seconds, minutes, 
hours together.

Never apart, 
no matter the weather.

A love so pure felt in 
places beyond, connected
two souls beating as one.

HUMBLED GROUND

I realize: I must not complain..
For all I have, some wants to attain..
It's not to much nor to plain..
Yet, it is enough for years to gain..

I'm neither rich nor poor..
Nor I am sick lying in bedroom..
Nor I am a person under odorous fumes..
Nor I am a being not in timely tune..

Trials stripped me off from comforts..
Obstacles lead me to tackle each effort..
Disappointments made me all the more on rapor..
Failures didn't keep me long bended injured...

I don't speak as to be proud..
I want to tell the whole world..
I have my God beside and around..
Keeping my feet totally still on ground..

Our Creation

Simple things like love arent easy to understand
My pen trembles, my thoughts scramble 
All my monsters are weak in her presence
Its sad how they no longer seem ugly
she says I do not write poetry for her no more
I found simple pleasure in her presence
Thieving a man from his madness
Like a candle forcing the darkness to speak
We still play but no longer keep score
She is my poetry but...


But she says I dont write poetry for her no more
I left that role to my daughter sitting in her womb
Her tiny fingers like thunderbolts and tornadoes
She catches placental waters like raindrops
And scribbles like her father
Silent as the night before a revolution
At a bonfire listening to insects recite their stories
About their evolution and our revolution
She says I dont write poetry for her no more
In a world full of fury, sin and silence
Choices choose us. We got nothing to lose except strangers
I live poetry through her beautiful life
The beautiful matrix of our creation embedded in her belly


She says I dont write poetry for her no more
I let my faber castell assault the paper
I write about non existent revolutions
Spread propaganda like a library of lovers
No full stop to my literary nonsense  
I m like tepid pause in a witch's cauldron
I m a poetry proctor peddling my stories to wishing wells
I m a failing bridge giving her away to the chasm below
In one life there is a trillion choices
But in two lives there is none
She says I dont write poetry for her no more


Her feet burden with the weight of my world
My secrets and sins between her toes
I rub them off whenever I get a chance
Her legs long and divine like the history of my lineage
They follow behind the absence of my steps
She says I never write poetry for her no more
In my head I found answers, tenfolds of answers
Answers too complex to pronounce
So I decided to scribble this love poem on her maternity dress
She says I dont write poetry for her no more

Youth returned

A mind awakens after years of dark
A beating begins in a once stagnant heart 

A lady of old who once lived so young
Is reminded of days that early on had begun

A smile thrown straight as an arrow in site
Lands upon her, no warning that it would take flight 

So sure she had been, that alone she would roam
A flicker of doubt now shadows her home

Also a flicker of hope if she dares
To let anyone know that inside she still cares

A hand to hold tightly, a touch that's so fine
It trembles so slightly, when it greets her each time

Footsteps in the hallway remind her he is near
His soap smells so sweetly she knows he is here 

Alone most her life now, she though that okay
But now that he's home, different she'll say 

Live as you must, survive as you go
Take time out to love, for love only grows

Princess - A Sparking beam lighting my world

Filling the blank space of the heart hey my oxygen of love You braced the sand near the shore with an enriched almond in my life,
Oh my damsel !! Stupendously You are my love!!

Dipping in the soul of your's, relishing with the bunch of Jasmine,efflorescence is flushing on my way,
Oh my Queen !! Universally You vanquished my heart!!

Aster of my life,blooming Rose, alluringly captured the entire morsel occupying with an astounding charm of your's,
Oh my babes !! My lucid crystal,You shines forever!!

Heuristically resolved my problems filling with the stiff breeze unwrapping the emotions of love,
Oh my angel !! Happily You wrote the fairy-tale of my life!!

Near the samui bay, as like a relation between kit and boodle you spinned the petals of my life,
Oh my princess!! Drooping in your eyes I felt daunted!!

Implanting your waving leaves on my heart, melancholically removing the sad ness of my life,
Oh my lady !! zingels rangged in my refracting prism of soul!!

My starlit darkness is been flared up as if You are the brazen periwinkles balancing my world,
Oh my Pearl !! Lying in your shell of clam, Oysterically I Would love to clump throughout for all season!!

Adorably my dame-chick had gleefully connected me with every piece of my soul lusciously vibrating me,
Oh my doll !! Mirthfully You hit my heart a million times & blithely the spirit of yours made me solve the entire puzzle of life!!

If we were both in Paris

If we were both in Paris
We on different time zones
Always coming and goin
I’m on this lonely balcony
Cigar smoke blowin
I’m as lonely as Gatsby
Cloaked in white with blue 
All the way down to my sox
Looking at the time on the clock
It’s awful lonely when does your ship dock
When does your flight land
When does your car  port
Get out the flutes, Pop the cork
Roll out the red carpet, 
Your outfit crème and sorbet
Deliciously clad in a dessert shade of sherbet
Make up perfect

You glided in floating
Amongst the stars
And I’m gloating
You finer than a miracle
You celestial, angel
Hot air balloon delivering
A cold piece descending
My face says it all no pretending
That’s when I awaken 
From this dream
So real it all seems
The neighbors heard me scream
I miss you terribly
I’m just too embarrassed
This wouldn’t happen if we were both in Paris

I just had to ask
Didn’t want to come off crass
I think fast, on my feet and I outclass
The best of them and the rest of them 
we give shade as we pass
I come baring gifts, not to harass
A one way trip outta here
Imagine if we were both in Paris
Staring at the Eiffel, surrounded by fine
Art, and fancy cuisine, can’t you feel the love in the air
Let’s get into a little espionage
Pull back the shades sleep in 
It almost feels like a mirage
Love is my alibi
Passion is my disguise
If I’m captured head quarters will disavow any knowledge of my mission
Will you come to find me enlisting the foreign legion?
If there was any doubt whose kiss is sweeter
Sweeping me off my feet with a daring rescue
I found a keeper!
Together atop this most romantic of city views 
from the highest peeks on top this terrace.
This fairytale could truly happen if we were both in Paris.

into the fabric of life

my heart is a child
holding a bead
weave that onto a necklace with your finest golden threads
weave my dreams into the fabric of your life
can you do it without breaking me
can you do it without making me silent when i should be singing
turn me on when i'm cold and alone
make the stars shine tonight
can you make the stars shine for me
can you take my breath away without taking hope with it
can you be the only one i see
can you be that fragile whisper that is home to my run away train
be the place where my heart stops
skips a thousand beats
one for each delicate smile i see in you
my heart is a child holding a bead
can you be the one to weave me back into the fabric of life
be my rainbow
be that smile that saves me

love fails

     
     If i can hold you to the promise , that you made me yesterday.
     Id search my heart for the answers, there's so much i can say.
     Its better off to forgive ,then place any blame ,
     For sometimes love fails ,it never stays the same .
     Seasons change ,like the wind and the rain.
     So many broken promises,a love down the drain.
     Crying out in the darkness, deep in the darkness sets.
     Ones mans love lost ,another mans regrets.
     From the wings of an angel, sent down from above.
     another man found ,another new found love ..

My Gorgeous Eyes

I see so much through these gorgeous eyes 
I've seen pain and misery through tears 
I've seen love and joy for countless nights 
I've enjoyed the pleasures of looking into  
The deep starry eyes of a gorgeous flower 
I see the rose petals blooming 
I see the the sun gleaming through those eyes 
I envision you in my heart and soul 
An may we awl hand in hand to the sea shores above 
To see his godly will bewilder your love senseless 
So close your eyes and envision me  
I see your beautiful body  
I see your beautiful mind 
I see so much through these gorgeous eyes  
I see me and you together for ever 
Through love and life itself. 
Now look into my eyes  
An see what I see of you everyday

A Lifetime Too Late is Somewhere Over The Rainbow

Copyright 2014 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
POETIC LYRICS BY THOMAS LAM HSI (ANDRESS)
Dedicated to Renata 'Ronnie' Kanani & Danielle McCarthy (I hope!)



If a lifetime is too late...then...MAYBE...THAT-LIFE...WELL?!?!
You know..."Somewhere Over The Rainbow"...Just Might Be A Silly Song!
There was a Movie, "Where Have All The Gods Gone?"
And I wonder...YES...where have all MY GODS GONE?

A Destiny Delivered Late...really is...Late...and maybe...TOO LATE!

There is really...only one thing...THAT REALLY MATTERS...THAT'S LOVE!
JUST LOVE...REALLY...IT'S JUST LOVE!

Every baby...every little boy...every little girl...every teenage boy or girl...
Every working stiff...of every kind...every retiree...EVEN...THE GODS...
NEED LOVE!

From carrot juice in wax cups...to your first bath...in the kitchen sink...
A cookie in your hand...and your laughing parents...at your first steps...
Is a Destiny That Starts Out Right...but SOMEWHERE OVER THAT RAINBOW
ARE BLACK CLOUDS...that await!

Do you remember...that first pulled pony-tail...that first unmanly cry?
SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW...the blue-birds...and...THE HAWKS
DO FLY!

A Destiny Delivered Late...really is...Late...and maybe...TOO LATE!

They say, "That a match made in heaven...is heavenly"...well...
DID YOU CHECK THE DIVORCE RATE?

They say that..."Love is a universal principle"...and I'd like to believe it!
Because when...Her Heart Died...I Cried...and then My Heart Died!

And I would like to say..."Will YOU believe for ME and for US?"

Love is something...and someone...TO HOPE FOR...AND TO DREAM ABOUT!

"Somewhere over the Rainbow"...can be the most beautiful song...
But that depends...!

Do blue-birds fly...and do the stars in heaven shine...but DIE?

Lovers in the rainfall...IN PARIS...is something that I'd love to see...
FOR MYSELF...AND FOR HER (or for him...as it may be)!

Rosaline

Moonlight shines down on my cold, pale face I am alone, her raven calling, I am disgrace Falling as the willows weep, I hold her in my arms as she struggles to breathe Rosaline, my one love divine. You are sacred You are mine Her voice rising above the water Beautiful Rosaline sang silently to me The whispers trailing off her fingers, as she faded into the darkness My beautiful angel has vanished again Goodbye my Beautiful Rosaline. Happened that Grim reckless day when the shadows began to play Beauty detonated in my trust No more, no more will there ever be a witch so grand, as to bring back my Beloved Rosaline Sorrow cuts it's way into my heart It is the locked key, the one you keep Her voice rising above the water Beautiful Rosaline sang silently to me The whispers trailing off her fingers, as she faded into the darkness My beautiful angel has vanished again Goodbye my Beautiful Rosaline So leaving this Tragic scene I vanished from Rosaline's sight Nevermore will there ever be a witch so grand, as to bring back my Beloved Rosaline Her voice rising above the water Beautiful Rosaline sang silently to me The whispers trailing off her fingers, as she faded into the darkness My beautiful angel has vanished again Goodbye my Beautiful Rosaline. Enchanting she sang to me, in the everlasting light of peace My beautiful siren walks again Goodnight my Beautiful Rosaline

Beautiful Halloween Night

Silver moonbeams shine from the full moon 
On a Halloween night.
Trick or treaters weave back and forth collecting candy
And other assorted goodies on this 
Beautiful Halloween night.
Scary stories are told around a fireplace. 
 A witch flies on a broom across the moon cackling 
On this beautiful Halloween night.
 A midnight breeze blows through the trees 
On this beautiful Halloween night.
A vampire lurks in the shadows looking for prey 
On this beautiful Halloween night.
Feys and faeries dance across the silver moonbeams  
on this beautiful Halloween night

Tribute to Richard Nnoli

Tribute to Richard Nnoli

I found a man here on this site
A day or two ago
I read his poems for just a while
And I was glad to know
That folk like he, they do exist
On this planet earth of ours
For reading all his lovely words
Was the blooming of a flower.

Wisdom is a wondrous thing
Yet in my world, it’s rare
I have read so many books
And often found it there
Amidst the teachers on this earth 
Who come from their own minds
But now I’ve found one on this site
A truly wondrous find.

He goes by the name of Richard Nnoli
He’s new here on this site
Yet read his poems and I am sure
They’ll give you much delight
It seems to me that this man be
A wisdom man for sure
Read his stuff with open heart
He’s a ‘one of’ that’s for sure.

a resplendence knight

leaving my destitute pocket
filled with her own dusty words
she is a  student of the unnatural behaviors
so its no surprise to find her on hands and knees as
she rakes the barren carpet between us
for the scrapmetal shavings of my many colored beast
as it sweats profusely in the close quarters screamfest of my mind

personally i give the carpet a once over for conversational pieces
a resplendence knight of such shining armor
i search for deeper meaning in the darkest depth of her laundry bin
cause know i could just as easy be the reviled stain
as i am the cardboard king
my broke down chevy just another hunk of detroit steel
so she and i wrestle into the night over the tea kettle cast off's

lay me down by the river
where the wild boys go
where the summer birds sing sweetly
in the thicket and in the sun
while the waters flow swift and clean
cool to the hand dipped in by traveling man
close your eyes neath shady tree on the sandy banks
let yourself slip into thinking
of the long ago
of the far away
the remembered faces come back like a tender song only the heart knows
the remembered years that fall silent like snow in the hearts darker places
these strings that bind you to your desires
are one in the same as thouse that tie you to your fate
kind or cruel

Enthralled

Enthralled

I am taken with you...
My eyes can not turn away from the attraction I feel in my bones. 
I am enthralled by your very presence...

If I am not with you I seek you out.  My desires begin and end with you...
I am enthralled by your very presence...

A deep raven is where I will fall to my death for you...  My mind is rendered useless when around you.  
I am enthralled by your very presence...

You have put me in an enchantment when your eyes look into mine... Dare I ever look away I may never come back.  
I am enthralled by your very presence...

Zero Tolerance

**** that ****.
I’m not a diagnosis.  
Something to be “fixed”.
I am a combination of traits and features
that make me a woman of depth and intensity.

I will not succumb to trite references
about how much better I’ll be then
because there is no known frame of reference
not for him anyway

Dance and love and beauty were always me
Rage and anger and bitterness were not
but when I met with traumas too hard to face
they broke me finally

Doesn’t mean I can literally afford to fix them
when I have so many other priorities now
like finding a home so I don’t do the inevitable
saving myself comes first

Polishing up rough edges from a life that wasn’t easy
isn’t going to be a drop in a bucket
I’ve already been working on it for years
It’s possible that I’m just too much for certain ones

I need one with intensity
who can meet me where I stand
be kind and compassionate, but
hard when I need it and have edges
that were honed from life itself

Because this dancer, writer, baby-maker, lover
is just too much for some to handle
too many words, too many thoughts
confusing.  Jewish.
Come from another world entirely.
Safe to say……

The Stars of the Night

 The Stars of the night tell so much
 but without the bright moon It may not tell all
with the moon, the stars are beautiful and can tell all

The stars show how I Love You as you look up in the night
as we look up from different skys of the night, we know each of us is looking up

The stars of the night skys are so beautiful as the moon shines bright with them!

the cards dealt

back to all the yesterdays
back to the stack of love letters
written in night's sorrows
to all thouse lovers left behind
back to simple truth of it
back to the one true heart and the knowin
back to your beginnings

play the cards dealt
play like you love the game
even though its the hardest thing you've ever done
play like you believe that romance is a means to an end
that the heart can be brought and paid for
like your true heart can be one of them
cause they will hurt you if you stand apart
if you show your true nature
so play like you love the game
play the cards dealt

it will be in the moonlight
of some none too distant night
you will come upon another soul that sings
come upon another heart that breaths like you do
and you will know
see the truth in the lovin
that its more than some hearts game
that its more than some adventure in the sheets
you will know the hearts song

Narcissus

A snow white flower shines in the soft light of a silent meadow. The words that you speak I shall forever echo. A lost love in the dark of the night. They all look your way, but are you blind? Can you not see the beauty of me? I echo your words, I echo your call; can you not hear the silent voice of me at all? I cannot whisper your name, my voice is gone. Silent I shall ever stay, until you speak again. My laughter shall sneak from my lips, until the last word has been spoken, Silent shall I stay again. Silver snowflakes fall in the glory of the dawn. My words are forever caught up hanging silently in my throat, strangling, dangling horridly on my cold lips. A mirrored reflection stares coldly back at you. The water paints a beautiful picture, golden and shining in the crystal spectrum. Will you fall to the hopeless masterpiece inside? Don't give into the lies that haunt your mind, can't you see that you're beautiful again? Beautiful until the end. You see me standing, afraid to think; so you speak. Can I echo your name? Can't you see that I'm afraid to breathe tonight? I'll always recall your words. With you, I shall never be alone. I won't let you go, though your desire is to be gone. In my heart you will forever live on. Farewell you bid unto the world. Farewell I echo to you. I choke in the invisible tears. The reality kills me as I drink in the truth of my deepest fears. Why Narcissus? Why my true love? Why you? Silver snowflakes fall in the glory of the dawn. My words are forever caught up hanging silently in my throat, strangling, dangling horridly on my cold lips. A mirrored reflection stares coldly back at you . The water paints a beautiful picture, golden and shining in the crystal spectrum. Will you fall to the hopeless masterpiece inside? Don't give into the lies that haunt your mind, can't you see that you're beautiful again? Beautiful until the end. I found a flower near the enchanted pool. You placed it there for me, didn't you? Forever the echoes cry out in my mind. Farewell Narcissus, until we meet again. Farewell, I'll see you whenever my time here comes to an end. Farewell, we shall be together again.

A CASTLE HEARTSTONE MYSTERY

A beautiful girl was born
In secret...
On a spring night
Just before dawn
 
A girl, so fair
A girl, so pretty
Your heart would melt
 
As she grew
Everything she touched
She loved too
The inner peace
Made people turn and sigh
 
In the depths of the Castle
She was kept secret
For the mother knew
The humilation and pain too
 
For the child,
a father was not known
For the mother,
she carried the secret
In her aching heart
On her face, the pain shown
 
The father, so they say
Handsome and charming
Took her heart
Took her love
Then went away
 
A girl, so fair
As beautiful as the day
Often wondered
Of the man
Who took her mothers'
heart away
 
Her mother in despair,
died
A broken heart
No one could repair
 
The girl,
such sorrow
Yet everything 
She touched
She loved too
 
A girl, so fair
Accepted with innate grace
the loss
She could bare
Serenity , upon her face
 
Abeautiful child
Bcame a woman
Eerything she touched
Se loved too
 
On a  spring night
Se must find
Te man who helped bring her ,
in to this world
Eerything she touched
Bcame light
 
Se sensed he was near...
Smething in the wind showing
Whose ripples she could hear
Her fair hair,  blowing
 
A fair wind came
Warm and sweet
from the South
A Prince to meet
 
A South Wind Prince confessed
A daughter to love
A girl, so fair
Everything she touched,
was blessed
 
A tale of love spurned
A mothers' despair
A daughters' love returned
A girl, so fair
Averything she touched
She loved too
With a heart, 
Carried in you

The Waves of Glory

The waves of glory flow through my being, the powers
of the Source are like lightening which emits from within
to without.
I feel You so strongly.
I can do nothing but submit, and I do not want to do
anything on a lesser plane.
No, I want what You have for me God.
It is picking me up, going through me, merging with
every molecule of my being.
I am dying to this world, the flesh has seen its last days.
Heavy the clouds are filled with Your presence; soon to  
bring forth the heavy rain of blessing.
I should love to drown and come alive again inside You, 
closer than I have ever been before.
I am Yours and You are mine.

Spring Time

I love the spring and what it brings
when the warm sunshine brings the 
flowers scampering through the ground
in such beautiful colors it can take your breath away

And watching the trees bursting forth with 
their leaves in a million different shapes
and the grass comes out to feel the warm sun
of  the first days of spring

And the rain softly touching each rose petal 
and every blade of grass with such tender love
that they lift  their smiling faces in harmony
and silently say

Thank you heavenly Father for letting us be
a part of your beautiful creation

Somewhere In Montreal

Copyright 2014 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
Poetic Lyrics By Thomas Lam Hsi


THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUE GOD...THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY...WHO ALONE CAN
SAVE FROM Satan...who plays 'all' roles...the devil...the 'Lord Jesus'...
the 'Father'...the 'Holy Spirit'...all 'Other Gods'...and 'alien gods'...HE...THE
LORD JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF IS FULLY GOD AND MAN...AND HE ALONE...
IS THE ONLY WAY TO GOD THE FATHER...and to an Actual Heaven!



If...this stamp were you...my kiss...would seal it!

For you're beautiful...to me...and your...heart cries!

And I know...that a beautiful...woman's broken heart...just dies!

Your words are...soothing as a...warm summer's tide!

As my fingers slide...the ebony dust...past the page...'fore my next ride!


And...PS...I love you...and my kiss...just...sealed it!

Ruby red...or a...cocktail...pink...pout!

My world is...upside down...and...inside out!

Every fairy tale...every song...is...only you!

Life...always goes on...but...me...and you?


Somewhere...in Montreal...I'm here!

Somewhere...in the world...you're there!

Ships at night...the...cruelest joke!

A fading star...a little girl's...heart...soon revoked!


If...this letter...ever reaches you...my kiss...just sealed it!

And...I am...beautiful...just...you'll see!

Beautiful...as an...orchid...just...you and me!

Love...in Montreal...chilly...at tea?

Penning lines...together...just you...next to me?


Didn't it...didn't it...and my kisses...didn't...they seal it?

My fingers...etched along...glistening gemstones...in...the pitchness of night!

Child's play...pretty stars...shining...so bright!

Snowflakes...collecting high...as your kisses...falling...upon mine!

Life together...forever...one...of-a-kind!


And so...you'll come...so...you'll come...I just...knew it!

You were always...going to come...and...I just...knew it!


Momma's first...jewelry box...just...a silly toy!

Stuffed...with...cracker jacks...for that...special boy!

Crunchy and Crumbs 1

Crumbs crumble under crunchy
Dogs journey with the crumbs
like vulture moving along mortuary
crumbs crumple under feets

crunchy crusade under riches
sheeps journey with crunchy
like rivers flowing into valley
crunchy grows under torns

Crumbs tortured under winds
burnt and torment in penury
crumbs always at the beautiful gates
Teenhood and Adulthood in tospy-turvy

Crunchy always in the beautiful houses
crunchy always tickled by sky
crunchy smile at thundery sky
crunchy smile at thundery sky
crunchy never knowing summers

POETIC LYRICS BY THOMAS L.H. ANDRESS



In the panoply...of the earthen and browned pages...of a
Parched and burnt...parchment of shame...The Will of a Nation
Lost!
A gloried and splendored dream...in the hearts and souls of
Peoples...young and old...free and enslaved!
Divine in Destiny...though lost...and found...throughout history
Heartless in the end!
A young man's and a young woman's...lost child...and stomaches
Cold and a-hungered!
Through the aches and pains...of royal charges...and shameless
Glories...the Will of a People!
Earthen and true...humble and humiliated...the Lost Voyage!
In a distant land...The Natives...Their Land...and The Lost!
Vortexes of nature...and of spaces...and of souls' dreams
Lost in confusion!
Peoples and their languages...mixed in bloodshed...mixed
In wars...A Lost Nation!
Young men and young women...and tiny children...stretched
To maturity!
And the rivers and rains of pain...in great droplets of blood
The trumpets of war!
A Parchment...A Will...A Nation...A Monument!
The Destined Greatness...LOST!
A Panoply of Great Shame!
In Distant Ears...A Call to War...the blood...the pain...
The Torn Hands of War!
In the lonely hours of sleepless nights...whispers in the night!
The Call to War!
The royal charges...the legends...A Dream...Birthed and Delivered
To Lost Hearts!
Will hearts go on forever...in dreams?
Dreams...are vaporous...and they flee...and stay lost...THOUGH
In The Heart of Love!
Love Goes On!

Rose petals...and mysteries in the dark blue moon-lit night
Scent the mysteries of his Juliet!
Rosen bathes in the heat of night...a starry starry cool Winter's
Crested-blue-moon-lit-night!
And Juliet loved Romeo...in the coolest and bluest Winter's 
Heated candle-lit sweet scented night!

Young lovers...and their elders...SOMETIMES...THEY KNEWEST NOT

Young lovers...and their elders...SOMETIMES...THEY KNEWEST NOT

And when silver spooned...and silver golden crested...the ships sail

Sailed through the stormy waters of TURBULENCE!
Silken smooth and scented with spices...Roman Candles...and Bursts
Of ECSTASY...PURE ECSTASY...those were the Purest
Royal Blue Lovers!

Young lovers...and their elders...SOMETIMES...THEY LISTEN
TO THE STRINGS OF THE HEARTS!
And when lovers PLAY THE STRINGS OF HEARTS
THE WORLD LISTENS...TO THEIR STRINGS OF HEART!

Do mandolins, sitars, guitars, or even, the vocal strings
WIN HEARTS?
Romeo asked his Juliet...do mandolins, sitars, guitars, or even, the 
Vocal strings WIN HEARTS?
HER HEART?

Modernly...Romeo and Juliet...still WIN HEARTS!
And when Romeo and Juliet...WIN HEARTS
CHANCES still aren't MERE CHANCES!

Young lovers...and their elders...and even their peers
CAN WIN HEARTS!
AND WHEN IT'S ALL HEARTS...HEARTS FALL
LIKE SNOWFLAKES...IN THE HEAT OF NIGHT!

Young lovers...and their elders...and even their peers
CAN WIN HEARTS!

When Romeo and Juliet played modernly...Do Right

That's when...Romeo and Juliet played modernly...Do Right
You Love Their Music!

Mandolins, sitars, guitars, and vocal strings in the bluest coolest
Winter's snow fallen chilled winded night!
It just sounds right!
THAT'S

A PAINTING MADE FOR ME

A beautiful sun...
A painting made for me
If colours were words...
They would soar like birds
In a sky made for me
 
The heart knows
The colours I see
For, I feel them
In a painting made for me
 
A sunset
The colour of honey
Washed away
Tumbling clouds
In a painting made for me
 
Dusklight
In a sky made for me
I saw
What I felt
In a heart made for me
 
A beautiful dying sun
A painting for me
Tumbling clouds
Soaring birds
On a silver sea

The Flautist

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~THE FLAUTIST  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 THE FLAUTIST fluently flaunted her flute- Music flew faultlessly through the airwaves,flying fluidly above the noise of the blustering city                                                    
THE fLAUTIST created a calm fragrance,who's flavor of creativity fell-well onto your soul creating a soul stirring calmness across the city. 
 
She played her flute clean into the night  vehemently, over the feverish chaos - And the people in the park and  in the city could hear clearly as they walked in rhythmic tunes/ She flaunted her music like sweet low hanging fruit, Her music dangled beautiful and singly.  She alone,Solo-ed notes of delightful serenity-  
 
  The flautist moved the masses to a state of bliss;Like free kisses flying in the wind landing on ears conquering and engaging spirits ,conquering pandemonium with her flute, she blew her flute... SHE BLEW HER FLUTE, and we marched and listened obediently . She blew her flute and we marched magnificently to her concert.

Our Silver Wedding Anniversary

Twenty five years ago today,
A young man woke on his wedding day.
As he lay there he thought of the good times to come,
Then a knock on his door, cup of tea from his mum.
Well son she said, the day has arrived,
Very soon you shall have your wife by your side.
He thought for a while at the words she just said,
Your wife by your side, went round in his head.
A smile then appeared across his face,
You’re right mum he said, I really can’t wait.
When at the church the nerves they took hold,
The best man gave a reassuring word.
The organ music changed its tune; the vicar gave a nod,
A couple that were so in love made vows in front of god.
That was twenty five years ago to this very day,
The young man that was me, 
The beautiful vision that stood by my side,
Wearing white old borrowed and blue.
Is the beautiful vision that is by my side still,
The one and only you!



For Marie with all my love, Mark

winter dream part two

she was my winter dream
with promise of spring
dreamed her one cold night
and every night since
she became the light in my life
she became laughter and warmth
a song that played me sweetly
she was my winter dream
frightening how quickly became everything to me
scary how quick became more than just memory
became more than me
i saw her in the falling rain
saw her in the light fading away to the east
saw her in my sanity disappearing into the night
saw her everywhere i thought beauty should be
when all other hope had faded
tasted so near to real for a moment
tasted like summer starlight kisses
like vibrant light of the heart brought to life
but then...

A PAINTING MADE FOR ME

A beautiful sun...
A painting made for me
If colours were words...
They would soar like birds
In a sky made for me
 
The heart knows
The colours I see
For, I feel them
In a painting made for me
 
A sunset
The colour of honey
Washed away
Tumbling clouds
In a painting made for me
 
Dusklight
In a sky made for me
I saw
What I felt
In a heart made for me
 
A beautiful dying sun
A painting for me
Tumbling clouds
Soaring birds
On a silver sea

A beautiful star fell

A beautiful star fell

To ground

Amongst the trees

At Heartstone

Its’ light shone

Upon the leaves

All around

 

A beautiful star fell

Swirls of colour

Of every hue

Rose through the trees

Soft angel light

Star bright

 

Angels of Heartstone

To travel

Amongst the stars

Coming home

To nature and magic

Of all things…known

 

There is no time

To distance

The merest thought

To travel through

Nature

Light

And magic too

My Baby Boy!

My Baby Boy!
Dedicated to my Grandson, Aidan

One evening in October I was introduce to a new
baby boy. To my dismay I fell in loved instantly
I really never knew love quite like this in my life
But in a breath of a moment he touch my heart
and it was a feeling that was out of sight.
My heart leaped with joy-My tears I could no longer hold back
for the sight of this new grandson
brought me back to life. This Adorable little
man is called my baby boy, the one I love, cherish,
and truly enjoy!
With is beautiful Blue Eyes, I grow weak
His powerful ooohhh's and cooo's
are like music to my ears.
His beautiful smile put me in a trance
He even know how to shift my gears
Knowing he has me twisted around his finger
He is still my little man, he is my Baby Boy!

A BEAUTIFUL SKY, SO RED

A BEAUTIFUL SKY , SO RED 

A beautiful sky, so red 
Clouds 
Scattered as far as the eye can see 
Words cannot be said 
A beautiful sky, 
for me 

I looked up, 
to a beautiful sky, so red 
To be a cloud 
Yet, I am down here instead 

The sun painted its' colour 
beautiful and red 
throughout the sky 

A beautiful sky, so red 
melted away 
Dark blue 
Some say... 
Transformed the day, 
to something new 

The sky darkened 
Night was here instead 
To steal the light.... 
of a beautiful sky,  so red 

I have become a night 
Lost in starlight 
Onwards I sped, 
to find a beautiful sky , so red

I TOOK THEM BACK TODAY

I took them back today
Such beautiful children
That , are a mixture of their parents’ way
A day
A night
Then I had to give them back

Such a wounding way
It plays upon my heart
That their mother cannot know
Of such things I felt
In my sorrow

The great divide
That cannot be seen
Such a wounding way
Such beautiful children
That I do not have by my side

I took them back today
That sense of loss
That I cannot be a part
Of a family home
That I left
That I tore apart

Another statistic
It always happened
To another family
Not me

I took them back today
Such sorrow
To see them go
For I had today
And not tomorrow

Beautiful Thief Glowing Hearts (Part IV)

Gratifying hearts emitting passion and sexual desire
Radiant eyes transfixed, two on two
The Thief Beautiful Is She has stolen me
Once Again
Magnetic lust, gravitational yearning
Connecting souls 
Flowing desires
Luscious, juicy, tongues dancing
Both of us bottomless, Deep inside loves sweet flavor
Uncontrollable, bursting
Oh Beautiful Thief 
Flesh on Flesh, writhing bodies
Torrid Heat, fire, burning desires
Tasting, teasing, tantalizing
Licking, dripping, flaming
Energy, orbiting, culminating
Driven, synergistic, Pure X-T-C

Sunrises at noon

12:30 a.m.: Wednesday 

I spoke in silent awe as I watched the sun breathe its final breath,
creating a beautiful silhouette which sat parallel to me.
She laid her gentle voice upon my ears,
as she sat comfortably beside my thoughts.
We spoke of generalized topics such as hobbies that turned to addictions.
Mine: The soft caress of a woman 
who could hold my heart with out fear of dropping it.
Hers: The sudden rush of learning of a person’s person 
through their vocal discussions. 

5:45: The night stood still; 
frozen, in the course of the mental love we were about to make..

Our discussions lasted for what seemed as endless hours, 
only to be realized as a brief moment in time.
She took me to heaven through her words
And soothed my aching heart with the memories I’ve most wanted:

Her and 
I, together 
again, yet
for the first time.

9:36: Dew drops formed a symbolic ballet for the dance we’d made 
through our verbal affections during the hours past..

Never had I known such a love as the presence peacefully presented before me
though it felt as if we had met in a lifetime earlier than the current.
Her angelic appeal aroused the blackest depths of my mind, 
grasping me beautifully as the night does the moon.
I reached for the night sky, piecing together our own constellation 
with hopes that it would draw the perfect idea for her
of us, everlasting and asked if it pleased her so.
She replied: ”So long I’ve waited to meet another soul as divine as yours.
I’ve been blessed to find you through the journey I’ve traveled for so long now.
Waiting, wanting…to find a perfect balance for my scale of love
and here, we sit.”

11:25: The horizon screamed of the apparent day break 
and our eventual departure coming ahead..

Our hearts palpitated vigorously at the evident knowledge,
soon enough, our words would run out and the conversation would cease.
I expressed my fear of lonliness and failure in love 
only to find a daunting but pleasing laughter glistening before me.
She uttered the sharpest reality that "in time, lonliness and failure 
coexist with love and success....in time, the world is our playground."
With time soon running out, the most important question I never thought 
to ask: what is your name?
She rose, gracefully as a true angel does 
and with the sweetest voice, she echoed

...Faith

As I woke from a slouching position from that same park bench as before
from what seemed to be the cruelest, 
Yet most beautiful dream 
Just as the sun rose
at Noon.

THE COMING OF THE SPRING QUEEN

When winter became a Spring day..... 
The Spring Queen came ,with out delay 
She approached through the Whispering Trees 
Everything she touched, turned to green 
Fresh shoots,budding leaves..... 
Flowers to be seen 

The Eastern Wind, 
bringer of life and green 
Followed the Spring Queen 
The awakening........... 
The greening.......... 

The Castle gates opened wide 
The Spring Queen walked inside.............. 
The walled garden grown 
Welcomed into Castle Heartstone 

Her fingers touched the wall........ 
Instantly the flowers grew.......... 
In places not before seen 
Such is the power of the Spring Queen 

The air filled with the sound of birds............ 
Birdsong, too beautiful for words 
For, there was life everywhere 
The Spring days,so fair 

The mood of the Castle lifted 
The life,the colour 
The Spring Queen, gifted 

The bare trees filled out, 
the welcoming shade 
The walled garden transformed............ 
Colour spilling everywhere............ 
Spring is in the air 

Such joy and happiness.......... 
Bursting through 
The Whispering Trees 
The East Wind breeze 
The meadow flowers, so blue 

Fresh flowers filled the Castle........... 
Most of all in the Great Hall......... 
Where the Heartstone lay, 
on the north wall 

The hum of bees, 
buzzing on the breeze 
Spring honey,so sweet........... 
A real treat! 

The Spring Queen......... 
Giving birth........... 
To a new and beautiful earth 
The land lay green..... 
The flowers, to be seen 

These flowers,sublime 
The emerging springtime............ 
All too soon the days grew hot......... 
The days grew long......... 
The days had new meaning............ 
Soon it would be Summer Queens' time 
the intense greening

What is Music?

A beautiful melodic chance to enhance the ear
so sincere you shed a tear so severe you back it up like a domineer
but music is not just what you can hear
it sums up all of beauty, all art in motion
like the sound of the weltering waves of an ocean
an enticing novel with an addicting notion
like the sway of a woman's walk showing so much emotion
music is art-art is beauty-music is anything you look at to admire
exagerate goals to aspire, a passionate kiss to look up to eyes of fire
a soul mate's touch to inspire
as two become one in the best way to perspire, music
to hear, to touch, a sight an infamous might, music
the canarous dance of a butterfly when their wings dawdle
ketchup's lingering trip down the bottle
to your beautiful body i can't wait to fondle
your face to your utter essence, music in my life
making me smile in times of strife
keeping me at the end of my wits, sharper than a knife
you are music, my words are music, music all around
with each touch it glistens 
so remember with music
you must do much more than listen

IN MY SHED

When colours of leaves turn
From green to red
They exist on a page
In a land I call my own
In my shed

I soared like an eagle
Above mountains and scree
Travelled on ships of wood
Saw many beautiful things
All of it...
Made by me

Trees and castles
Queens and Kings
Faeries too
I saw so many stars
Of every colour and and hue

Upon a page
I felt such angst
The heart bled
The words healed part of me
The rest.....
I let it be
In my shed

The shape of words,
and their meanings
What it does to me
On the pages of my mind
I am set free

In my shed
I can be
Anything
All is written
Nothing said...

A myriad stars
Inhabit my shed
The soft colours of Autumn
Come forth
From inside my head

I dreamt of so much
A beautiful thing too
To be nurtured 
Given flight
For, in my shed
I grew...
In the magic of words
From inside my head

MY TREE

A beautiful tree
Grew
It faced the sun
Every day
New leaves revealed
Such magic
Has begun

I watched it grow
Over the years
I talked with it too
Just like a son
That I had come to know

Strong and true
It grew
And grew
Such beautiful branches and leaves
Every season
A new colour
I loved it too

A tree
That I knew
Had a heart
Of that I am sure
For that tree
Loved me

It whispered to me
In a language
Only I could know
For the tree
Knew me so

When I was a boy
The tree was young too
We grew together
Watching storms
Rain passing
The seasons too

I lived my life
With my tree
I became old
The tree
Grew and grew

Before I was too old
I took my last walk
Down to my tree
To say a few words
To a member of my family

The last good bye 
To my tree
I accepted with a sigh
My own frailty 

Tears can shed upon
The bark
Of my tree
I will not last the winter
Or see another spring sun

In that coming winter
The only thing I could see
Was from a castle window
All I asked for
Was to be buried
Underneath
My tree

Times like these

Its times like these that I wish I could fly,

Over the heavens,
But underneath the sky,
I could watch the world float bye,
And you're the most beautiful thing that caught my eye,
Your face was glimmering like the sea at night,
Then with all my might I came down in front of the one I loved,
You turned your head and I fell deeper into thought,
The mother of my children I saw,
My heart on my sleeve and my head held high,
I ask you beautiful lady,
Will you be my bride?
It's times like these that would make a grown man cry,
A time in his life with someone by his side,
The stars are the limit between you and I,
Please say you'll be mine and I will hold you high,
It's times like these when I thank god I'm alive.

A World To Ponder

As I lay, the world around me alive yet hushed, time rests still to let the mind 
catch up with it. A night sky with one sea of clouds and the sun reflecting 
monsters created by accident lays still. While these beautiful monsters, in their 
size, kill the grass they stand on, their beauty takes away breath from all living 
things. Soon the sun will cease to shine on the melancholy above us. The waters 
will recede back into the horizon as the sun wakes up to shine on flowers 
abroad ‘till it is bored of sitting in these flowers and goes off to explore all the 
other wondrous designs once shown in Eden upon soft pedals of gentle, yet 
plagued life.
	Songs of sorrow come from the ones left in the presence of one 
mightier than the sun until the beautiful monster comes again with his deadly 
stomp.
Watching, wandering, and wondering, the sun asks, “How is this death so 
glorified. Do none wish to grow, or do they confuse north and south?”

The fish calm, the waves roar to the horizon in understanding. As this reality 
becomes my fantasy-I live in this world that men before me have created.

Arise, My Love

Arise, my love, and come away with me
The season for singing has come
The winter has passed and the rain's moved along
My darling, my beautiful one
See, the tender figs spiced upon the tree
The vines are fragrant with blossoms
The flowers appear, the dove voices its song
Arise now, my beautiful one  (Chorus)

In the darkness of the sky
Your face is the fairest moon
Majestic as stars in flight
For my coming to you is soon

And you'll shine as the dawn of day
As clear as the sun above
And your beauty I will parade
Like the hosts with their banners of love

For you are my perfect one
How pleasing you are in my eyes
There is no flaw in you
I say unto you, my bride, Arise

(Chorus)

And the foxes, catch for us
Little foxes that spoil the vine
Its tender grapes are for our cups
But our love is better than wine

It burns like a mighty flame
Its jealousy will not yield
And rivers can't wash love away
For upon my heart you have been sealed

Undefiled, unique and choice
You overwhelm me with your eyes
You have stolen my heart
I say unto you, my bride, Arise

(Bridge)
For there are delicacies at our door
Old and new unseen to your eyes
Now from the secret place of the stairs
I say unto you, my bride, Arise

(Chorus)

PASSIONATE WOMAN

Passionate woman,
I love you beyond imagination;
I surely know of your
infidelity and untue passions...
even when you offer me your tempting lips
and turn them to my warm kisses;
but there's no woman 
as beautiful as you really are!

Yes,passionate woman
I love you beyond  imagination,
because you really are one of God's
most beautiful creations;
and touching you softly,
excites me even more...
and knowing you better
increases my comprehension!

Passionate woman,
you are giving me everything
without questions or doubts;
but will it ever  turn into true feeling?
You have my promise today,
will I have yours tomorrow; and if
spring comes only once
to cheer up lovers
with songs and flowers,
don't pretend or simply think that's
such a lovely day
in our splendid lives...
try your generousity on someone
who will love you without obligation!
