pausing I pour
this way and that
i may disappear
within Your honeyed
fertile and pure
sweet pulsing elegance
in Grace-fuelled dhikr
soft green shoots of
Eastern Sun Light
palm pressing fresh fruits
needing till ripe with
Great goodness seeping
through pulp, pith and kin
composting in Him.
the above was written in response to:
The Head of The Prophecy (6,21-8,27)
‘It is like a palm shoot whose dates dropped around it. It produced buds and after they grew, its productivity dried up.
It certainly would be good if you produce new growth now. You would certainly find it.’
Know Yourselves (12,17-13,25)
‘Be eager to harvest for yourselves a head of the grain of life that you may be filled with the kingdom.
Do not be proud because of the light that enlightens. Rather, act towards yourselves as I myself have toward you. ’
(quoted from ‘The secret book of James’ which is the first chapter in The Nag Hammadi Scriptures edited by Marvin Meyer published by Harper One in 2007)

light glance this cliff edged firmament
these ocean thrusts and sweating spume
re-foam this cleaving cleft of discontent
sweet soak this night with Loves perfume
re-float this will-filled would entanglement
this hope-long-roped-on sophanes ledge
unclasped at last, to weep and flow within
your grace swathed Anchorage.
‘Open the eyes of my heart, Lord, Open the eyes of my heart, I want to see you…..’
In recent weeks have been singing and humming this songs refrain over and over and slowly have realised there is more to be expressed….
Open the pores of my heart Lord
Open to pause in our hearts
Breathing Your love in me
Oneness and Unity.
Descending high and floating up
Feathers on the breath of Your glory
Filled with Your power and love
Our hearts cry
hold me, hold me, hold me
Holy Holy Holy
‘Every moment of life is special’
May foot steps lay light upon this precious earth
May meadows sprout sweetly within wakeful ease
May worries be welcomed with the warmest of smile
To join lip upon lip upon this evening breeze.
May quiet souls save us from amplified stress
May sharp words find stillness and suffering stall
May thoughts upon thoughts upon feelings and sense
Release, to float freely like leaves in the fall.
May conflict disperse upon in-flowing breath
May out-flows of love bathe tired worn torn flesh
May waves of abundance soothe and replete
While rays of vast darkness shine bright in our deep .
