"Swallowed"



Swallowed
in the belly of the whale
epiphany rips my waves

more than a stone ripples 5
12 disciples 
bare feet floating on yesterday’s grave

walk on water
Survive

Swallowed
in the belly of the whale
epiphany rips my waves

saltwater tears taste
an elixir 
Communion of the Brave

A wake
Awake

Stepping Stones
==========

Invest one’s words whilst
Disengaging spent brain mode;
Discover Haiku. 

Walk midst new flora,
Engaging sensory brain;
Discover freedom.

Test out thoughts anew,
Embracing strange views unleashed;
Discover mercy.

Follow trekking stones,
Entranced with fierce, sleeping giants;
Discover courage.

Look askance at
Passing points of brutal pain;
Discover heartbeats.

Feel pure cashmere shawl

Be rustic, shapeless and albeit day,
Our light had glowed the daylight to shadows,
What gleamed in the day was swapped by the night,
First love 'tis gone, for 'twas...Read More

Deceived and Relieved

I knew it would end in tears.
The trouble is: I never cry.
You’ve realised all my fears.
And I didn’t blink an eye.

I knew where I stood, so goodbye.
Run away from every painful fact,
Back to momma, I won’t die.
I found...Read More

Indigenous
The tree of senses keeps me close to my conscience,
liberating the bondage of believes in existence.
In certainty of identification to belong in effect,
by family as race and nationality towards self-image detect. 
The individual perspective by self awareness in social situation,

Premium Member In poems, in prayers, in courage
When you are down, let it pass by.
Do nothing. Let words bleed in imagery
Speak nothing. Let silence float away..
Rephrase nothing. Let wisdom break the clichés within.

When you are down, let it pass by.
In poems, in prayers, in courage.

Going through the Motions
For hundreds of years now since records were drawn
The punch ups at Penclawdd were witnessed with scorn
Twixt the rivalry wransackers, the cockling cavaliers
Who dug deep for booty and cast out rival peers
Much sweeter than Lougher or Gowerton outer reaches
Is a...Read More

Strange Weather 

The camels are swimming, 
and who knew...
they knew how?
What a surprise...
to all that stood by, 
watching them cross the desert,

as the sucking sand, 
has grown hungry.

What is that noise?
I have heard it before?
In the ramblings...

but dead still. 
I rush.

Did you ever love someone madly, though never fully understanding why?
Untrained for such distress, when they touched your hand.
You shared a few days in the morning Sun, and loved on warm nights.
