Silver Mirror

15/04/2021

A Silver Mirror Lying Still

Beneath the Mist Enshrouded Hill

The Mystery of Morning

As the Sun Climbs the Sky

Cloaked in Crimson Majesty

And Ponderous with the Weight

Of Holding us within her Grasp

For Yet another Day

Oh Mother Water 

In your Silver Robe

Reflecting the Crimson Misty Glory

Of the Morning Sun

Oh Mother Water

Just Now you Lie so Still

But You Hold so much Power

Nestled there Beneath the Hill

When You Release it Slowly

You Give us All we Need for Life

When You are Running at Full Force

We Can Only Run and Hide

Oh Mother Water

Mingled with the Sun

Natures’ True Divinities

When All is Said and Done

Positive Reflection


Espelho dágua

The non-empathic ones came creepin’

When the rest of us were sleepin’

And stole away the goodies of the Earth

Now our senses have awakened

Like the dawning of the Kraken

We know the ruthless have no idea of the worth

Of the wonders of all nature

Of each and every creature

Of the abundance springing from our hearts

They mistook us all for stupid

Or all sadly touched by Cupid

Laughing at us right from the very start

Now many years have gone by

And many slices of the pie

Are in the pockets of the heartless and the cruel

And now as we awaken

To all the things they’ve taken

It is time to make a challenge of a duell

While their jets fly in the skies

They think that we breed like flies

And in this they are not so very much mistaken

It is time to call a halt 

To our foolish Somersaults

That put so many buns in ovens to be baking

While they ply their yachts upon the seas

They think they are the dogs and we the fleas

And for them the time has come for decontamination

It is time to take a look 

At the directions that we took

And form ourselves a new idea of Nation

If we are to survive

With our Empath Hearts Alive

We truly need to find a new direction

But Laws are changing everyday

If we can find a way 

To change them then we may

Rebuild our World with Positive reflection

My Angel

  Some say there is an Angel

Walking beside us each and every day

Some say there is an Angel

To guide us in each and every way

Well I wonder, Yes I wonder

Just how hard it must be

Well I wonder, Yes I wonder

How hard it is for me see

Just how hard it must really be

To be my Angel

Looking from ourside myself

All the cards that I was dealt

Choices I have made

All the Devils I have slayed

And I wonder, Yes I wonder

Just how hard it must really be

Well I wonder, Yes I wonder

Just how hard it is to let me see

How very hard it must really be

To be my Angel

Looking back upon your life

All the plans and all the strife

The illusions that paved your way

Would it not be fair to say

That you wonder, Yes you wonder

Just how hard it must be

That you wonder, Yes you wonder

If you will ever see

How very hard it must really be

To be your Angel

Our lessons here upon this Earth

Began the moment of our Birth

Matter manifest all around

But our Spirits are never Bound

And our Angels, Yes our Angels

Are working everyday

And our Angels, Yes our Angels

Sometimes I hear them pray

That we will all awake  some day

That we will all awake some day

{I do not know where the Photo of the guardian angel came from so unfortunately cannot give a much deserved credit} Xiccfrances***

Immersed in Spring

14/02/2021

I stand immersed in the sea

Of the buzzing of the bees

And the singing of the birds in the trees

I stand Immersed in the flow

Of the breezes as they blow

With the sun shining down on me

I stand Immersed in the glow 

Of the flowers as they grow

And the budding of the leaves on the trees

I stand joyous in the rain

As it washes away the pain

Of the winter that nearly brought us to our knees

I stand in Springtime and rejoice

As I lift up and join my voice

To the chorus of Nature all around

Flown in from Africa the Swallows wheel and loop

Around my head they swirl and swoop

Birds of the air they never touch the ground

While I stand below in the sea 

Of the buzzing of the bees

Immersed simply in the web of  Natures Sound

CASA FIGUERA

02/02/2021

High on the hillside

A ruin is standing

An echo of somebody’s dream

The roof fallen in

Her timbers all shattered

Walls coming apart at the seams

An old beaten brass bedstead

Stands in one corner

Her Mattress long rotted

And lost to old dreams

A Fig tree once seeded by somebody’s meal

Has sprouted right there on the floor

Over the years she has grown up through the roof

And out of the windows and doors

Lost abandoned and lonely

Deserted dreary and old

She looks for someone with courage

Someone both fearless and bold

To see past the rubble

The rot and decay

To the warm wonderful home

She could once again be

But if this becomes truth 

Then sad to say

I know 

What will become of the tree

The Haven

04-07-2019

A Stroll to the jetty

This morning I took

The Haven stretched out

Shining and Blue

The busiest waterway 

Wale’s Heart-beat of Waves

Her stunning  beauty 

Shines through

Tankers and Trawlers

All vying for space

With the Yachts and the Pilots and Tugs

The throbbing of engines

The lull of the waves

The cockles and dead Spider Crabs

That litter the shore-line 

Of pebbles and stones

And the seagulls all searching for snacks

The Sounds and the Stillness

All mingle and merge

With the breeze blowing off of the sea

There are so many more beautiful beaches

But this one holds interest for me

A History that goes back

Far further than writing

A Haven both safe and secure

A Rare Sunken Valley

A Ria indeed

Has sheltered from many a storm

Both Raiders and Kings

Gave thanks for her shelter

Sank to their knees and said

Prayers on her Shore

All of these thoughts on a Stroll to the Jetty

The Haven stretched out shiny and blue

Time always rearranging

As  the sky ever-changes her hue

THE TURTLE TREE

Sept. 6th 2020–My first day of oficial retirement- I recall a

‘A Lovely Memory.’

There is a place I used to like to swim

I named it Turtle Beach

If I used my stealth technique

I could swim up close beneath

The turtles Sun Basking on the Limbs

Of a long drowned spreading tree

As soon as they perceived me 

There would begin a steady drop

Of dive-bombing turtles as they 

Threw themselves Off

From the sun-kissed Branches

Into the cooling Lake below

Instantly they disappear beneath the 

Limpid waters

Rising with  inquisitive inscrutable 

Turtle faces

To see if I present a danger

Or perhaps only wish to share and find

some perfect sunbathing places 

Which I proceed to do

followed by turtles one by one 

And two by two

Until the drowned tree was bedecked

Bestrown with bodies warming in the sun

Rejoicing  each and every one  

But now Sad to say

The waters of the Lake 

Have withdrawn and gone away

The tree stands forlorn her branches high

As on the day it first did die

When first the waters flooded

A welcome place no more for Turtles

It’s second life

Now has no purpose

We Pray

The Turtles and I

That the Rains may return for Our Earth’s Sake

So once again our place to take

Sunbathing until we are half-baked

Upon the branches

Resting softly 

Above

Our beautiful

Blue Lake

Water Warning/ I Just need to let you Know

Half Moon July 2020

The Reservoir

Now I sit under the half moon glow

Reflecting in the receding waters far below

And I just need to let you know

That our world is changing

Changing Fast— not Changing Slow

If we do not Change our Ways

Our Ways are changing just the same

 Changing into a Hunger Game

You’ll be just another Water refugee

With no real place to be

Another Hobo with no abode

Nothing to drink- no seeds to sow

Nothing to eat– Nothing to grow

Nowhere to be

Just another Water Refugee

Wishing we had learned to STOP

Respected EVERY DROP

Without Water we will  have sown 

Our very last crop

Sitting up here high above the reservoir

Watching the water get lower every day

Seeing Islands and Hills all slowly revealed

 Never  seen since before the reservoir was filled

But we simply -Turn on the Tap or Flush the Loo

You do not Know but you will Care 

When the Water simply isn’t there

You’ll be just another Water Refugee

Another Nobody with Nowhere to be

Just another Hobo without Abode

Without a Prayer , without a hope

Just another Water Refugee

No food to grow- No seeds to Sow

Nothing to drink– too late to think

To take it SLOW-and

Respect the Water, while still the Water flows

Respect the Water- because you never know!!

The time to act is Now

No more delays in fact

Now is the time to Act.

Water is our Love

Water is our Life

Water is the Love in our Lives

The Silver Tree

Walking out a Blackberrying

Searching sweetness for our dessert

I passed the fallen Silver Tree

Still lying as she has lain

For many a year and season

Shining along -side the path

Her limbs long removed and taken 

Probably burned 

To warm the people 

Gathered around a Winter Hearth

Now she attracts not only artists

To her wondrous twisted shining form

But birds animals and creatures 

Also Fungi her slopes adorn

I walk around her wondering

How long perhaps she lived

How many sights and wonders

 Passed beneath her Living Gift

Of Shade and Mottled Light

Flowing in the Breeze

Cattle Resting 

Birds Nesting

Year upon Year

Upon Year Upon Year 

And now here she is still lying here

How many years since she fell 

Or was felled

No one here remembers well

T’was many years ago

For as long as the locals know she has been

Lying here from

Untold years ago

Silver and Mysterious

Glorious under the Moon

Shining in the Sunlight

Like a Fairy Castle where the 

Fairy Fungi grow

A home for many creatures 

And for all I know

She will lie here still

Once my own old silver bones 

Have been reduced to Nil

The Wonder of a Tree

Giving throughout a long long life 

   Harbouring life 

Throughout a long long death

I give Thanks to this Silver Tree

She holds my Soul in Awe

I hope that my own life

Can mean as much 

To so many

And what is more

I pray that my own death may prove 

To be an aid to those

That live on  

Ever branching

Reaching to the future

Building  Beauty

Building Love and Truth

Building a World

Worth Living In

For every Soul Created

For every Soul that is  Born

Into this World of Matter

Into this World 

Of Endless Form
