Absence
Nothingness
unbeing…
darkeness
Unseen
 
Spiralling down
undone
untowards anything
Dis-connection from
Undoing…
Unexisting
un self past born
 
Wrenching
past the twisted pain
of unliving never more
to unbe
Un holding on….

Transmutation

Standard

IMG_0899

 

Life is an avoidance of self
of who and what we are
a running away from the inevitable
that everything changes
All must End
all Withers…
towards the Centre
and that we die
and yet in dying
We become..
become again fully part of who
and all we are
or ever were
we are at once fully Alive…

Fading

Standard

IMG-63991-0

 

I walk as a shadow
inside forgotten footsteps
Of melting ice prints
of time and winters past…
Through well raced pathways
over curving hill
and wind scarred tracks
along landscapes of frozen
fading memories…

   
At my core I am on fire
raging to feel the sun
Restless to unravel
my earth bound bonds
to journey through this Wasteland
of pain
To find my way Home
again…

Blue black sky-starry night twinkles over silver sea
pathway to the past and the land of our time
fishermen and fishwives shelter in the lashing dreich
Sparkling towers in the main street echo beauty sunlit or wintry rain
mychty men quarried our silver city dug deep and built it up
on the pieces bright glances and rowie’s their quines gave to them each morning
Atop o’ a building looking at the view ahead Twa towns
clear skies over squabbling gulls swirling chasing fishing boats home
children racing flying kites at the beach boaties in the distance
Twa rivers merge into ice cold water deep grey restless sea of endless storms
gave us life and brings us death – here communities are born.

New Dawn / Dàn nuadh

Standard

DSC_0091_tonemapped

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
