“I would hear a poem blowing across the landscape and run to get my pen and paper lest it pass me by and be born of another poet” Anonymous

These poems are gifts for everyone to remind us of the union, oneness and beauty of all of life. They have been received at various points and always appear in the same way with the first line appearing in my mind and repeating itself until I pick up a pen and begin to write it down, at which point the next line appears and so on. It’s like taking some sort of inner dictation…often in the early hours of the morning.

May they nourish and inspire you. You are welcome to share them.

The glorious images are all from K’gari Fraser Island where my fabulous niece Hana lives with her husband Mark. Together they run K’gari Adventure Tours. Some of the images were taken by @MegForbes

Promise Me This

True love defies all time, all boundaries and is created to last,
So promise to never let us get trapped by the past.
Instead to see me every day with eyes anew,
This is the secret of a special few.

In the Face of Death

Let me start here, right at the beginning,
I’ll tell you a story, a yarn I’ll be spinning.
The tale of my life, the ups and the downs,
The highs and the lows, the smiles and frowns.

Real Love 

Real Love is not the initial passion,
The spark or the flurry
That puts your heart in a hurry.

Bee Wish

Repetitive days, a boring existence,
The same old thing just to meet my subsistence.
I hate this life I want to die,
The request leaves my body with a desperate sigh.

Brand New Day

I love these hazy, lazy starts to the day,
The cloud hiding the warmth but the sun on its way.
The cool breeze bathes my skin,
And the silent joy bubbles within.

Beloved

You once said I was an unscratchable itch,
A subtle niggle that nothing else could quite fix.

An unfathomable attraction from which I can’t flee.

Leaving no trace of jewels behind.

Diversify, adapt or die.

An on-going and ceaseless job.

As I surrender myself I hear the call of home,
Memory wiped and all sadness gone.

The stories and beliefs that create the false tie.

Struggling and fighting with all my might.

Soar

I want to soar like an eagle on the wings of life,
I long to fly high, to hover above the pain and the strife!

It’s magic this place somewhere to play and be free,
Floating eternally on the currents of infinity!

As you end the pretence and instead finally Be!

Broken Spell

In the light of awareness the spell is broken,
The illusion revealed, sanity found.
Wings spread like that of the eagle, mind still and I no more.
Bathed in the glory, held safe in love forever, adorned with the truth.
Returned to the love that I choose to forsake,
Forgiven the lie that created the mighty earthquake. 
I am you and you are me, we are one this family.

Remember My Love

So clever this intelligent mind,
Put here to serve all mankind.
Create, destroy, create again,
Round and round in ceaseless pain.
Caught up forever in analysis,
And the endless suffering that persists.
Throw off the chains and release the shackles,
Breathe deeply through your raised hackles.

A glorious vision in shimmering gold.
