Salted Wounds.

stay open

blood seeps
in your mind

as a heart
cries out its pain.

we met there.

the great orange orb came to visit
rolled over the sea

we met there, in the light
a prayer on our lips-
(for goodness sake).

-to sing with the birds
fall silent as the hills.

deeds not words
and discerned
what you do
points to where you are
in heart and mind
body and soul
let us desire the good
always and everywhere
for others
consequently for ourselves too.
nivek 4d
plucked from night
ejected from dreaming

there is purpose here
a spiritual hand

wakened for listening
and supplication

humbled by trial
freed by perseverance

grace works with grace
until love is all in all.

we choose.
nivek 6d
back and forth we journey
never standing still

our spirits gathered
at the crossroads

once again we choose
our paths.

Winter rules and we sit it out
-more, thankful for warmth and shelter
given space to marvel at nature
-her powerful magnificence
and all her unrivalled artistry.

and still grunting by default
we pay less than lip service.

the sky thunders now and then
and throws down lightening
to get your precious attention.

if you never fall silent
how will you value silence
if you do not enter her portals
you will never hear the rain sing
and if you never hear natures songs
you will forever be estranged from her.

seeking beyond the senses
stars being born and

to your heart beating my child?
prayer takes many forms
and listening is one of the highest.

so very Human.
nivek Jan 14
there are deeps I fear to fall
bottomless places silent
unheard whispers as you go
following, always
one step behind yourself
yourself you leave along the road
the you discarded in useless moments,
and then you love yourself
for being so fragile and
so very typically Human.

Orkney Islands.
nivek Jan 14
Climate change here is Sea encroaching fields
harbour wall over-spilled
Sea getting higher, higher.
But on the plus side its warmer, Summers fuller,
Winters milder
But we know what can happen when the temperature
rises supreme, Australia, not so inviting these days.

the ugly truths.

Beauty energises a dry well
makes it swell, gush a fountain
freely quenches the thirsting soul
makes whole the ugly truths.

your silence is in symphony
united to the wind

your silence is a gateway
and beyond lies eternity

your silence is eternal
songs forged behind the veil.

I cannot dance on the head of a pin
-the place you would have me dwell.

I refuse to hear within my heart
-all childish insecurity.

I will grant you a wish-you-well
and mean it for eternity.

we go our way as we must-
its good to acknowledge goodbyes.

its our time to dance
and time is short-
let us dance like the wind
nivek Jan 12
I saw you watching through the eyes of a bird
realised that if I went to the ends of the Earth
you would be there, waiting.

I cannot escape from loves solicitude, love,
where ever I go you will be there before me
and before I go anywhere you are here with me.
nivek Jan 11
voice of forever, pray speak to us
loving heart, forever love
may we be overcome,
so much so we be silent,
and enter the silence of beauty.

the waltz
nivek Jan 11
from the dark to light
spun spells of confusion

we meet to say goodbye

and sometimes we dance
hand in hand

the waltz around the stars

finite words to express the ineffable
love gave birth to poets
and poetry came the closest
to express the sublime

and being sublime,
unnoticed by the many
poetry became vocation
and vocation enjoys marginalised.

the door to eternity
nivek Jan 10
doors open all the time
and time is eternal

where do you want to be?
who do you want to unite with

Jesu is the greatest lover
opening the door to eternity.

and the end of the journey.

silence is my lover.

I kept to my solitude shared with the sea
the blue sky and stars to other worlds
silence is my lover and I love her-
she always welcomes me home.

across the ocean
nivek Jan 6
I saw you across the ocean
I could smell the coconut in your hair

children played hide and seek
around and within the trees

the old men were gathered on the shore
and the women laughed at the men

I looked at your ankles brown with Sun
and felt a little embarrassed

soon the envelope of space and time closed
and I waved you goodbye.

Sun stars.
nivek Jan 6
you wrap me in language
we touch across eons

your Sun star I see
you are far from here

I heard you last night
a bird flew into my bower

you sung for me then
but I am unsure of your language.

wearing brands

naked into this world
naked to return

and much more

clothed in fear

all changes in instants-

up close and personal
with the monster in the mirror
who knows there is no depth to depravity
that can break out into full consciousness
and to contradict it all no height to heroism
in an instant can be called upon within the monsters heart
by the forces of love and loves plan for all monsters
to frustrate and ultimately overcome all but love.

history older than the Earth

the green oh so easy on the eye

the scent of summers sun
keeping our hearts pure

lay us down in the grass
let us be childlike forever.
