Love returned


IMG_1597 (3)444

Do you come to me..
do you run to me..
do you love me

every turn your head makes from me
every empty silent word
all that is said about nothing
Pridefully avoiding ourselves and each other
suppressed in smothering silence
choking the blue/black chilled air
surrounding our fears
hiding from the reality though it faces us
And we awake to it each morning

But it is there
dead long ago..
left to fester now in
the shadow of all we were
in the dust of our memories
that once cast beauty and connected light
through our tender love
encompassing all
The brightest of both our pasts
undying love in thought and time
Visited no more
grown tired in the waiting room

All is ever/ all is present/ all is truth
All is let go
and I will run from you
because I love you
And return to me.

New Dawn / Dàn nuadh



Never together
never one whole
beginnings in obliteration
power out of control
Suppression of a people
ignorance of who we are
arrogance in power
Weak from where we are

Change is tumbling forward
rumbling through the mist
rolling on the horizon
through the consciousness
Change will end their arrogance
Time is running out

They will be redundant
simply cease to be
drowned in their lack of vision
that will be their destiny

Change is tumbling forward
rumbling through all time
Our dawn is now
Our light will ever shine
