silently spinning.
nivek Jan 15
inhabiting the silent places
seeking beyond the senses
stars being born and
moons and other worlds
silently spinning
to what end we ask
where no end exists
excepting the inevitable
transformation of painful
truths.

my child.
nivek Jan 14
head bowed to better listen
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.
nivek Jan 13
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.
nivek Jan 12
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.

wind dancers.
nivek Jan 12
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

on the margins.
nivek Jan 10
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.

love, the road to travel
and the end of the journey.

and beauty gives thanks
in union with the journeying soul

glimpses in corners of eyes
a flip jump,

where insects be
a flash, dash, swatted away.

silence is my lover.
nivek Jan 6
I kept to my solitude shared with the sea
the blue sky and stars to other worlds

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.

Garden of Paradise.

wearing brands

naked into this world
naked to return

all these things
and much more

clothed in fear

one gunshot one lightening strike
all changes in instants-
and the road can be lone, long,
but a moments clarity seals all deals.

monsters
nivek Jan 6
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.

front of stage.

****** into the black vortex
history older than the Earth
stars twinkle for eons
as 2020 takes its bow
front of stage we appear
a flash and we are gone.

Discard.

Discard goes hand in hand with living
and in dying the last act is to leave a carcass behind.

to claw your way

is one fine journey.

now that will take some doing.

into solid reality
nivek Dec 2019
we watch
look out
search horizons

peep through each moment
remembering
the past is past

come up for air
fresh present aliveness

and we begin to wail
and cry and sob
inconsolable loss

when the truth
bends our fantasies
into solid reality.

the end of the World

unspoken silences, the places unseen
told jokes to keep things light hearted
as we all waited for the end of the World.

creeps up on you, oftentimes
when all you perceive is pain.
