scientific starting blocks
on a supra cosmic track?... more »

and the music that sets them dancing on the tongue?
Oh sweet music where have you gone

Words they dance upon a stage
making ideas all the rage.... more »

How do you write a poem
It cannot be caught
and is beyond words’
power of depiction.
It has no place to be,
all places are filled
Without Love would
anything have any savour?
Love is what joins
Love is what flows
Love is what counts
Love is what grows
Love is what’s known.
Love is all around
Love is all about
Love is all we ask
Love is all we give
Love is all I have.
Love wants nothing
Love needs nothing
Love misses nothing
Love excludes nothing
Love is what this is all ...
Downcast and burdened with a thousand cares.
Staring at a complex world of conflict and despair.
Imagining the worst and gripped by fear.
Forgetting who I am,
and what is really there.
Thinking I am this and that,
and becoming tired and scared.
