    Cried

    And I cried
    Where the river of life
    Springs of from the sacred
    Perfect ground
    Knowing in its course
    God is found.

    Caledonia

    She wove
    Her dreams
    Around them
    Opened deep
    Their eyes to see
    The beauty the bounty
    Of life's mystery
    She held them
    Reared them
    To understand
    The world around
    She taught them
    Showed them
    Life is hard and unbound
    But the love and caring
    This constant sharing
    Of who and what they are
    Is the gift of this mother
    To her children near, far
    The love that binds them
    Holds them to her form
    To ride the heavens
    Amidst life's turbulent storm
    She's the call that forever
    Births and begs them home.

    To grow**

    There is a slow death
    That fills a being
    Wears thin the soul
    There is a slow death
    That gathers deep
    Slowly drains all you know
    There is a slow death
    That rips away the past
    Allows a freshness to grow.

    Beats

    My heart beats
    For you
    Draws within my soul
    This eternal want
    To be.
    That baby, nothing but
    Your hand, your smile
    Your nestled head upon
    My shoulder
    And the soft voice
    That gathers
    Holds to every fiber
    the love shared in you.

    Life**

    Deep these waters
    That fill us, consumes us
    To this being, entity
    This creation that two
    See whole within the eyes.
    That the day drapes in sorrow
    Where the voice cannot be heard
    That the day lays to the longing
    Every time it's heard, known, felt,
    I become the broken ember
    Of the fire that we built
    Till again we gather, commune
    To the harvested heart
    Ànd the world floods, fills
    To life.

    Ripples and reflections

    He said-
    "We are but reflections
    Cast upon the pond of life
    Not perfect to our being
    Sometimes distorted
    By the simple ripples
    Or by how the image
    Is seen and perceived
    From a differing prospective."

    I stand here
    Where this worlds reflections
    Flutter upon the waters
    Little characters hinge themselves
    Upon every frame
    Where the echoes flash
    Like distant songs
    And these words we speak
    Of love, family, friends
    Flash so fast upon the scene
    Till gone within the ripples
    As the life we fill.

    Yet, this pond
    Holds upon its waters
    Everything that came upon its edge
    Retained like whispers
    Where at times we hear
    Sometimes see the reflection
    Of that image from
    The other side of the waters.

    He says-

    " When still these waters
    This flood of soul
    Expresses deep this well
    Of fluid, of space, of time.
    That we swarm as one
    Swim deep these engulfing
    Waters that fills us
    Makes us true whole.
    Where love flickers like
    Those stars
    Eternal within the abode
    Of life."

    The world sleeps

    In the silent hours
    Where the hush of day cuddles
    Into the cozy blanket of night
    We dream between the sheets
    Of reality and illusion.
    Upon the sighs and mumbles
    And the shouts and screams
    The delusional images
    That call and crest us all
    To that reality that we are
    Not all that we would seem
    Merely concoctions
    Like a mixed witches brew
    Of all we've ever wanted.

    Love

    Oh but love
    This pang of annoyance
    That wages, rages,
    Within breast and mind
    Holds all upon a prism
    A thought, memory
    A dream , goal
    All that is within a soul
    To know, ever wanting
    Those visions bright and clear
    To be, forever to be
    In the moment
    That constant now
    Where love holds
    Folds upon its self
    And dances the blood
    Invigorates the veins
    To that pounding
    That want
    That ever is you.

    Àislìn

    That i see
    Here within the bud of day
    The soft brown hue of your eye
    That dances bright to the way,
    Sings out upon the air
    And holds me captive to its sway.
    That each time my heart melts
    I fade into the soft warmth
    Of all your eyes say.
    That i can see the deep love
    The joy that fills your soul
    The knowing hug, embrace
    The soft voice that sings inside
    Every silent word,
    Each sigh or wimpered sound
    That so brings my heart to joy
    And dances deep my mind
    That the years fade
    And time that mello substance
    Vanishes like a puff of smoke
    Growing, older to the day
    Filled to the vigor of life
    To the dreams that within fly
    And dancing your feet
    Upon the softs sand of life
    I see my child, my hearts beat
    Reaching for those jewels of life.
    And I, blessed, graced by God
    Experience your love
    Embraced to you heart
    To your soft call...Daddy.

    Gathered

    I hold to where
    The years in mingled
    Compromise, cries
    Laying open long tears
    That draped your image
    And flooded my world
    To the smile that tweaked
    Creeked upon your cheeks
    It was in your strength
    I held my haven
    Contented to where you
    Entered each prism of being
    And gathered me soft to bed.
