Wake up!

 

bed-3013209_640

 

Wake up

Peacemakers,

World shakers,

oppose injustice and oppression.

Weapons of mass compassion

seem useless in this turmoil.

 

Wake up.

The Spirit is calling us.

Wake up, children.

Resist the comfort,

seek out the awkward,

uncomfortable moments.

 

Do not throw

first stones.

Feel the heaviness.

Feel the prejudice.

Stand

on the sand-drawn line.

Don’t be a barrier;

Be a safety net.

 

Our home,

not here,

not condemned,

not forgotten.

Wake up.

Shake history;

Be planet changers.

 

Wake up.

Boldness strikes like a lion.

Do not stalk mistakes,

but be courageous

against the

wrong of the world.

 

The earth absorbs

our tears.

Plant in the sorrow

of today;

Buds bloom tomorrow.

It is time;

a new season is upon us.

We are here

for such a time as this.

 

Undo the shame

Bend on one knee

Breathe

…breathe

……breathe

 

Breathe in the Spirit;

Breathe out justice.

Show the Way,

Speak Truth,

Give Life.

 

Wake up

hear THE roar.

Wake up

see THE kingdom.

 

Build it here

amongst uncertainty.

Lift the Cornerstone,

build the foundation.

Don’t let it fall

between screams of hatred.

 

Be hands and feet

of Jesus,

but don’t carry the nails.

Let hatred stay

in the piercings

of the Cross.

There is no place here

for darkness.

Victory lives.

 

Wake up

our anthem,

mantra of existence.

Don’t stand for something

less than our destiny:

We are all

royal

sons and daughters;

We are all

worthy

images of God.

 

Wake up.

Hey Blue Bird

Hey blue bird,
My friend
You return to me
Again.
skipping and twirling
Between air and earth,
taunting, alluring,
creature of sky and ground.
You have no sound
except for your soul’s other
heard across heart planes.
Your delicate body renders
powerful strides
accurate and precise
Flying through the sky.

Hey blue bird
do you see
the beauty
you give to me
In this world?
A moment to forget
loneliness and regret,
consuming my warmth.
Your cheer
provides me
Simplicity of life
Serenity of my
existence and being.
Who other than you?

My friend,
seen and unseen
Freely lighting
Red footsteps on earth
following you
Blue wings twirl
flitting through air
as each pair
cut space and time
Warmth and light
Ever intertwined
Connect one another
Red and blue
and blue and red
Warmth and light
Air and earth
Can we discover
our existence through
each other?

Hey blue bird don’t go.
I don’t want to return,
looking at the greyness of people.
The hues of your wings
lift the heaviness of my soul.
Allow me to escape
into your world of colour.

Will you let me, My Friend,

Dance on your blue feathers again?

Blue Wren

Pretty Little Fool

e56658dee65a6f987b6bfff05b8ac8dd

Some say I am a fool

A foolish little girl

That I live in a dreamland

High in the clouds

 

Some say I am a fool

A foolish little girl

Too young and naive to know

Sheltered from the world

 

Some say I am a fool

A foolish little girl

With feet above the ground

And a head beneath the sand

 

Some say I am a fool

A foolish little girl

Who doesn’t know real life

The pain and deceit of people

Do you have a Plan B?

Sprinkle on satin petals and

    be Reborn in my solitude

No darkness can cover you from my eyes

                                                Open.

I’m breathing for you.

                Shallow disregard,

They are blind to the beauty of your spirit

                Free me.

                                                Taste me.

You are imprinted on my mind

The heaviness of your question

                                bleeds into my heart

A new dawn to be your Plan B

                Leap, you say…

Fragrant Memories (first draft)

Wisps of fragrant memories,
comfortable homesickness,
wrapped in the embrace of the chill.
Shiver, sweet child, for the desired recalls you smell
What will come of this
heartbroken happiness?
Lie, if you must.
Lie with your mind, adultery in hand and awaken the spirit of a child.
Your blissful ignorance
will comfort you into
a consuming meditation.
Beware, the blood calls.
Unwrap you mind and hand
your thoughts over to the vulnerability of your destiny.
It is you they choose.
Child of mine, be lulled by the serenade
that surrounds
The knowledge can kill but hope
will awaken with a cry
Be not forgotten or begotten to the mystery.
Thrive within yourself in order to burst forth
from slumber.
Be brave, my phoenix, and rise to your role;
Let not that which you fear neither consume nor destroy you.
Heed the greatness you carry and
remember all of whom carry this power that follows
ever-watching
ever-growing
ever-enveloping
like a forest covering her saplings from the wind.

Go forth, my lovely, begin your steps of prophecy.

An Audience of One

Happy C.V. moves the legs,

jumping sheep turn to waves.

Salty, sand-filled;

the mind is pregnant with a dreamless sleep,

The safety of an alloy friend.

interrupts the soft glow of the new year.

Drinking Jack,

watching God give light.
