Wandering Spirits

This drum, drum, drumming
oh so gentle within us
… an echo breathing

This subtle fire deep within
bleeds its life story
giving our souls reasons to breathe

This chance to dance within light
is born when we smile
… an echo breathing

Love
within
us
… an echo breathing

The curse of it all

The curse of it all
The blessing of it all
The dark bark of it all
The beauty of it all

To reflect upon it all
is to grow heavy
weary
under the onslaught of her silence

and like a bee to the purple
like a shadow to the moon
like a shimmer from reflected grace
the truth will blind us soon

When once there was a seedling
When once there was a smile
When once there shined a coal-black eye
Thine fervent beauty came alive

The curse of it all
The blessing of it all
The dark bark of it all
The beauty of it all

To hear the tune of it all
is to grow feathers
wings
under the onslaught of her wisdom

and like a finger to the ‘bow
like a bird to the nest
like a light from distant shores
the truth will come to rest

~

A spiritual distance of starlight
shines the love of angels
upon the hearts of those
who write the same song

Vibration of soul is…

vibration of soul

is

quiver of leaf

flash of kingfisher

joy of raindrop

creak of tree

sound of sorrow

tinkle of stream

seep of mist

rumble of thunder

sigh of snowflake

beauty of mountain

noise of pain

smile of sunrise

drift of breeze

innocence of child

shwah of surf

natter of bird

 colour of fear

moment of sunset

touch of love

scent of earth

 release of death

crunch of pebble

sway of flower

expanse of night

thought of peace

passage of time

sight of rainbow

squelch of mud

tickle of happiness

sheen of skin

freedom of barefoot

delight of taste

song of life

zest of nature

silence of silence

is

vibration of soul
