In This Life

I want to BE your LOVE to be
You caterer, your DREAMER to be
Not in this life, but the next
You’re shackled TODAY to another

In the next life your LOVE to be
I’ll SHOW you what true love to be
Your feet bound hard stone beat
Weight of forgetful HISTORY

On the contrary, I’m willing TO BE
Your melting spring GLEE
HEART of frozen glaciers
Who thought LIFE can emerge?
From DEPTH of the frozen

I‘LL show you how GREEN the valleys below
And happiness adds RICHNESS to the cow’s udder
I bind core of SWEET clover leaves
And blush HEARTS of poppy flowers

I am HOME of the bee
My nectar feeds the honey tree
That crows dry brow to pure GOLD
Feeds NATURE morning hunger

Search deep MIRACLES do occur at sea
Let sails bloat free
Fire and ice BIRTH life
HEART and HEAD earth pulse

When was the last time LOVE parted your Red Sea
Or CHARTED honey in a cup of tea
INSTEAD of pawning the remains
Adding more ash to the hearth of winter

In the next life one ID
Our flames will be RENEWAL plea
So bright their hue ETERNAL
Souls celebrate two suns

New heaven Gods agree
Where souls meet to be FREE
Fulfill their destiny
I am your chariot wings
Up to heaven SEAT

Your GROUND now six by six by six: FEE
Lethargy, loneliness and loss on bended knee
Course laid down by the devil SOLID
No saintly voices found HERE

What keeps hidden inside your memory KEY?
Locks way of the locked Dead Sea
I am the air that NEEDS to expand
Loosen life’s lid to FREEDOM

Freeze dials of the banshee
Let LIFE giving sun in to be
Set bound wings on FLIGHT
Up and away fly with me TO THE LIGHT
In this life I am the now: let your past FLEE

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
