    so long since i wrote on here i could hardly remember how to do this......

           
          Spring is showing itself,
          The tiny white flowers,
          Pushing their way through the snow....
          New life a pleasure to behold.

    The surge of life
    Through thin stalks rife
    Battling the cold
    To bring joy untold.. smile

    To lift our hearts,
    To new beginnings,
    Weeping non the less
    For those we have lost.
    Re uniting, growing with every passing moment.

    Snow covers the ground,
       But still the Spring flowers
       fight for their survival
       The birds looking for food.
       Whilst cosy and warm we
       Drink hot chocolate and write..............

    for where in the hands of creation
    did breath begin us
    breaking silence
    becoming the inside

    i close my eyes
    i am still 
    with a wisp, i become.

    for a moment I am grass
    making the decision to be found

    the enemy stands in front of me
    radiation levels lousy in its dna
    evidence that things don't change

    but i am not paralyzed by my status

    eaten by a cow and moved into the form of a summerfly
    i become mobile
    and witness the dazzling throneroom of god
    conflict and rebellion are no longer validating

    i don't know why i come here, drawn to depuration
    leading me to drive the fire to another plane

    i am numb and comfortable
    budgeting my life against time

    i am more enclosed in memory than process
    for a moment i was grass

    Yet, even a worm,
    The lowliest thing,
    Awaits treasured Spring.

    Beneath thawing soil,
    It begs to emerge,
    It, too, has an urge.

    now, maybe that's the one
    Spring, the genius muse pushing me through the earth
    embosomed in the deeply cut edges of my tradition

    connecting with both earth and sky,
    creating, and being creating,
    breathing, pausing to catch one more breath,
    Inhaling the surroundings,
    Encouraging, and being allowed the freedom
    To connect, and create together,
    Though not in the same space,
    not in the same mind,
    far away, but in many ways so close.

    The joy of togetherness,
    as we freely express,
    On pages unending on the web,
    entwining our thoughts,
    and emotions within,
    these pages that spin,
    the world in an instant
    with poetry sequent!

    a gentle tap, in one part of the world,
    Brings a welcoming smile to others,
    maybe even millions of miles away,
    Inspiration spreading world wide,
    Encouraging the artist within,
    colourful, visual and even sometimes poetic......

    Poetry for the soul
    my mind not at ease
    a heart broken
    thoughts scattered
    mind battered
    emotion arrested
    feelings made numb

    i am now lonely
    ruled by hatred
    seeking for vengeance
    sad at betrayal
    love to me is a lost cause

    read my mind
    you will see a dark path
    seeking for relief
    my heart troubled
    cos love is an outcast.

    Thoughts from
    the mind of a boy
    piosonED by love!

      Love you once shared
      Tell us that you dared
      to live with courage
      to show you cared
      Enough to give all of you
      from life’s wellsprings you drew
      Once given of life
      Ask not for it again
      What you gave
      will come back to save!

    love holds triggers,
    and loss of love even more,
    that we could love ourselves.
    Despite what life throws at us,
    and somehow win through...............

    The sparkle of love
    holds us spell-bound
    its embers fan our ego
    at the start of its magic

    ¤¤¤¤
    love is a strange feeling
    when in it
    you dwell in a faraway land
    like aliens,
    your thoughts ancient & funny,
    it keeps you going each day
    ¤¤¤¤

    it dashes you hope
    And bribes you with joy
    Each moment glorious
    Each day sacred

    ¤¤¤¤
    but when it is sour
    your world come crashing
    Each day an obstacle
    Moments of pain unending
    remembering those sweet moments,
    with sad faces
    ¤¤¤¤
    what more but sorrows!

    Hard lessons that we learn,
    standing us in good stead for the future.....

    love
       
    cosiness happiness feeling carefree,
    does it happen to you, does it happen to me.....
    gentle, pure so warm to the touch,
    the dictionary leaves out
    it hurts so much!!!!!!!!!!

    I write you a song of love long gone,
    when it came
    it was as sweet as honey
    ¤¤¤¤
    it had wings bigger than that of an eagle,
    we celebrated
    we cheered
    victory long won
    ¤¤¤¤
    ancient in union
    mystery in ways
    the way of love
    magical ane euphoric
    ¤¤¤¤
    what i think now
    is a stranger in my own mind
    thoughts strange
    lacking of balance
    i ve learnt my lesson of LOVE.

      my life is like a riverpool a movin' mighty fast
      i'm known to skip a beat or two - won't nothing never last?
      if i should fall in love with you please tell me if it's true
      cause i can't tell the difference now that I made love to you

      my life is like a riverpool a pullin' me along
      i'm known to skip a beat or two when the feelin's really strong
      if I should fall in love with you don't drown me by the quay
      the riverpool has left me dry - the area is grey

      sometimes my heart and mind collide - i can not beg to stay
      my life is like a riverpool a draggin' me away

    You, poets, are truly amazing
    Your words make my heart sing
    Beautiful flowers in the spring
    New leaves, new life, awakening

    Thank you so much for sharing
    Your awesome talent in expressing
    Thoughts and emotions overwhelming
    My mind, my soul, heart rejoicing

    I am in awe of all of you
    Who could just string words as if on cue
    Flowers in the spring to love anew
    You make me smile, so thank you.

    awestruck
    wonderment and delight have carried me
    to the place where poets rise

    and there I found a star man
    a person who is loved by everyone

    a large round man with a willing smile
    a round smile and a face like the moon

    he drank honey with his coffee
    and red sprinkles
    said it was the magic that gives the coffee its greatness

    he wore a big ring and drove a cadillac deville
    polished perfection
    like the shine coming from his eyes
    eyes which were true enough

    “there are two kinds of people,” he’d said.  “the little kind and the big kind.
    don’t let the world confiscate your heart,” he told me.  “you got to be a magician”

    I figured he was telling me to hide my feelings or something

    “no,” says he, “you got to leave something everywhere you go and leave nothing.  don’t just visit”

    “I must have rocks in my head.  how can I leave something and nothing?”

    “come on – don’t be miss ignorant.  be a myth maker, a teller of tales, a messenger”

    “fierce leader, what does this mean?” I teased him while he honeyed his coffee

    “you are the steps you take
    fill your days with gems and whims
    talk to the hummingbirds
    hear from clowns

    life’s measuring is not in our aloneness
    it’s in the red sprinkles we leave for others
    ***
    and so I follow the poets in their blissful parade
    and I listen to the fairies whispering behind me.

    Now i am here again
    To unearth my emotions
    Tell a tale of my feelings
    share my heart and mind
    Of the glorious happenings of my life
    ¤¤¤¤
    I slept in peace yester-night
    though bugged by emotions unending
    about a woman
    that once stole my heart
    my heart sleeps with her words,
    the sonorous sound of her voice
    with whispers so divine
    touches of shivers
    In times of glorious sweaty sweet moments
    ¤¤¤¤
    i remember how you cried
    cries of painful pleasures
    Each stroke a maiden's delight
    ¤¤¤¤
    let it be dawn
    i am home
    let the candles blaze
    let the music sound
    make it slow and soft
    is the bed ready?
    My body quakes
    your touches divine
    kisses deep
    mouth searching
    tongue sweet
    moans echo
    bodies melt as the heat cloud our vision
    Each thrust chains of pleasure sweeter than honey
    you shout, head shaking
    hips jabbing
    with such pace
    i am a champion
    ¤¤¤¤
    wow! Those re deep thoughts

      what copyright is this - you cannot say
      to copyright my love - when it was thine
      I send this letter thus, your heart to sway
      the hope of which to give you what is mine.

      if i could live upon your tattered brow
      and bathe my heart within your silken tear
      then there would be the portent of my dream
      complete resplendant love unbidden there

      but suddenly i am no longer bold
      remove the words of anger spoken there
      what once was full of life now quickly gone
      the cause of such defeat i can not bear

      so precious to your soul the gift you hid
      you close your heart from breaking even now
      no flame nor e'en desire holding there
      but i, to save your love and this i vow

      would live among the misty streets of dreams
      if i could live upon your tattered brow
      no copyright to send into the void
      for I am never gone, not even now.

    sometimes the rhyme will form the tale
    i think of the single tear you shed
    my silent rage wells up in me
    oh, stately, sightly, beautiful dead.

    we rise on moonlight in the end
    to suffer life and love no more
    but love, it will not die in me
    forgive my daring, i implore

    How feebly reached my finger, but hesitating so;
    One phrase it wished to capture, but words it did not know.
    Poised there above the backlit slate, it longed to etch that rhyme,
    That poem yet still burnt in heart, but not yet borne to mind.

    Time passes as the finger waits, a fidget now and then
    Flicks lightly at its poised-there tip, while iPad screen grows dim.
    Hath inspiration left my soul? Falls scorn around my head?
    'Tis late; the Hubbers I have failed. Off now, I am, to bed.

    Oh love, sweet love,
    like dewdrops on my brow
    fresh and pure
    a lingering cure
    for sadness and madness
    Just a drop of tenderness
    blended with oodles of kisses
    hugs and endearments
    turning tears into happy torrents!

    so as the olde worlde dies away
    I think of blissful spring
    of children laughing at the gate
    of robins on the wing

    alas, my soul has plundered deep
    the darling buds of May
    who begged before, at winter's door
    who wanted me to stay

    still, resting on the greenhouse eave
    soul watches life unclutter
    as love rests on the fountain's wake
    two hearts, like petals, flutter

    Oh, stately, sightly, beautiful dead
    I fall upon your ancient grave.
    Still now, I hear your whispered soul
    and see with heart, not eye.

    When once you led the hearts of men
    what battles did you see?
    What came unbidden to your eyes
    and caused your soul to flee?

    When first you heard the footsteps of my soul
    you chanced to love.
    I layed a sword across your lips
    and so was your undoing.
