On Golden Sands

 

Together

 

There is a hush as the sea

Gently flows back and forth

Onto the Golden sands we know

There caught in the light

 

Where true feelings glow

Two people stood holding

On to each other’s soul

Their smiling gaze

 

As the Angels shine

In the intimate knowledge

Of their being joined,

With a trust so true

 

Laughter sings out

As the babbling stream’s,

Catching the sun

Scattering it’s light

 

Words no longer used,

As looks portray,

A love of the ages,

They have captured

 

Where their trust

Two souls live on,

 

 

 

 

 

 

Apart Once more

 

In the whirlpools

Of their ageless time

They have spent inside

I hold your soul!

 

Is the echoing sound

Out across the waters,

I hold your soul!

With my love that’s true.

 

I give to you my all,

The reply rebounds with joy

That mimics the echo

Of two souls held aloft

 

Where all can see.

A special creature

Held in chrysalis state

Waiting for the sun

 

To warm its ways

You will then emerge

As a beautiful butterfly

Of feelings soon

 

To be free and new,

With love to give

Hold on to these places

All things are sweet to you

 

 

Your life’s blood,

The blood of your life

Hold them close

For they and only they

 

Can see the veils of time,

As they hold your soul

Give only to those

That earn your love

 

With the trust of all things,

Also the trust of bygone days

Given to you the hope

That in your future times

 

There will be two,

Building for your life

Build on sweetest thought

Of life that you are,

 

Where the heavens

Loaned us one of theirs

Build within the confines

Of your beautiful mind,

 

So that you are strong

As a tower of strength

For yours that need

A Break In Time

 

I walked with the secret of the years

As I came past your window

I told the time to go away

As it made things seem to fast

 

Then it was time to talk

Of things we felt not heard

The whispers of spirits gone,

Came to me as I thought of you

 

There they talked for hours,

Of things you had missed

They say that you were just waiting

Waiting to see that all things

 

Were well with the world

They spoke to me to say,

“Look at the path you have trodden.

It is the same as the one you tread

 

Or, are to tread, as things go by”

“Then in the morrow these things

Can be learned of us

That we may become more pure

 

As there is no tomorrow

And no yesterday, just now.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

You are not alone

 

 

Should you see me cry

Please don’t ask me why

As there are to many things

Racing through this mind

 

Of people that have pain

Others seem not to care

I feel them in their way

They to me are so dear

 

Their world has gone

It is their only song

It happens now and then

It will happen again

 

I cry that I cannot hold

Them in their misery

Try as I must I cannot see

A way to be there

 

Then words I can send

If good enough to go far

As a hand they will be

I can stand where you are

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then feel my love there

To hold you as I care

That you feel so alone

These things we share

 

Out of your dark shelter

I can lead you to light

Bringing sun to your night

Just read of me there

 

Feel my hand in yours

It will open the doors

You locked from inside

Touch the hand let’s go

 

Write some words to me

That fly to my mind

Leave nothing behind

Hands touch across the sea

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Of Later Days

 

There are days then there are days

Ones where we can just laze

In sunny places that we make

Then others that would make the world quake

This maybe is one of those

The future now has been foretold

In the recesses of my mind

 

The part of me here has become unkind

Therefore I now know what I must do

There are Angels my road to show

Who need to know that on my way?

They would like to see each day

Where I live and where I play

 

I thank them for the love they show

I carry it with me where ever I go

I will relate to them for them to know

Where I am so that I can show

That I love them with all my mind

The ones I cannot leave behind

 

For ones that are here who hold not so dear

All the thoughts that are held therein

You will always see that it was a sin

To treat such feelings without thinking

My little ones I love so and pray

That I can only hope that one day

Our paths will meet then we will say

I have loved more in every way

That other creatures can understand

 

 

Our love is strong as the mighty oak

Then as gentle as a summer breeze

We live, we are, there are none to please

For deep inside our love will be

Held in souls love, for eternity

Yours and mine

 

The ideal ways of us would be

If it were possible to live in me

The dreams of early days are very plain

That we must as we are, remain

Pure as the driven snow

Held deep inside each others souls

 

Where one day I may awake and find

That all the things left in my mind

Of value, and when things to me are kind

There you will be standing with me

This is a dream that I hold so dear

It will keep away all the fear

Of not being there at hand

 

To guide your ways, as suns sometimes do

As stars held aloft navigators did use

If you look out during all the closings

Of your days, you will see me shine

I will shine for you in all the ways

That are in need for your special days

As those stars do shine, and we are one

 

In this way of love whatever may come?

Remember that I will be as a sun

The words that I have said to you

Hear them in all the things you do

As we go along the path of our ways

Separate or together at the close of days

Of the days we love, held within us to know

That it is us, as on we go

 

For ever,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why

 

I whispered your name

It passed you in vain

Then I touched you

The cloth took touch away

 

I held you in my arms

The cold deadened my feel

Thought’s so real

I said I loved you

 

Where had you gone

I asked all around

They only stared

Looking at the ground

 

Tear drenched cheeks

A darkness held me so

Someone talked to me

That I had to let you go

 

Where I asked of them

Had you to go that day

I heard a voice inside

Say not so far away

 

I took weeks of looking

Nearly turning every stone

That voice haunted me

Would you be alone

 

 

 

It returned to say to me

Whispered in my ear

I heard your voice

Saying, I love you dear

Poetry Book One

                                             Biography

                                         Ian T Howard

 

Born in the village of Hawkeridge Wiltshire in March 1942 into a family of eight, memories of these early years can be dated to, June 6th 1944, I remember the sky filled with aircraft.

My Sister was born on the 22nd of June that year and made our family up to ten.

Our family was Mother and Father four boys and four girls, so you can guess that we had a great time, though our style of life was limited to our income.

I could read at a very early age of around three, I think that this was the grounding for my imagination, and ability to write.

My writing started more during my senior school years, with the entry of one of my bits, as I call them, into the school magazine, of Matravers School of Westbury Leigh Wiltshire.

I joined the Royal Air Force at the age of 15, and started writing in an exercise book, this I still have; one of my poems in there is the Valley, made from early days of playing around the countryside, when a small hole in the ground became a canyon..

Over the years of writing and changes in life, having my own family grow up around me, and then the parting of the ways as some families do.

Also the passing, of my parents, one sister and a brother, retaining their influence on my thoughts.

Then remarrying into a loving state, that has Spiritual connections, my writing has evolved into a wide variety of works that reflect my interpretation of the things around, not only in a factual way, but sometimes with a deep philosophical outlook with a soul to each and everything.

I have through the connection I have with the Spiritualism side of my present life, recorded a great number of talks with the Spirit world as they are related to me, most times through Anne my wife who is an International Medium.

These talks with spirit are recorded from semi trance times, when there is a connection between the two worlds, mostly when the Spirit girl Sadie comes through to talk to us using the Mediums voice, there are other Spirits that come through but this will be clear, as we carry on through the tapes day by day.

I have over the years written many poem and short stories I will try to put these in chronological order just to show how my ways evolved.

I will leave you to be at peace with all things.

The Valley

Down through this wonderful valley of the never setting sun

Where time stands at the height of summer in its full run

Trees adorned in their lustrous green coats, move with me

Move to the gentle breezes, playing hide come seek all day

Here there and everywhere, in prancing leaves we play.

Across the lake, that has become a silver disc.

Made beautiful by the sun’s rays, leaping across the surface

Appearing to catch the silver of the fish, scattering it far and wide

To the river that relieves the lake to the stream that feeds

One dancing bowl of light

Drift with the river as it flows slowly through, fields and trees

Meander on to where the hills blend with the sky, lost in the distance

Place of perfect rest, unique in its sights and sounds

As time unchanged, so the valley of dreams, held forever

Oh sweet repose from life’s troubles, here to wander as the breeze

Across through and over, just sighing with the trees

To move, but wonder of all to move nothing

As the sun, always there to see, and to caress the things it sees.

 

 

 

001                                    A Beginning

 

There in infinity dwelt a silence of a void

The void with its glow, pulsed Alpha and Omega

Here is where man in his limited ways cannot be

For infinity has no place for time or things like man

The glow pulsed for an instant, was this infinity

Born of the voids of timeless distance and space

Infinity stirred pushing, pulsing, spreading outward

Once again pushing itself into the birth of being

Filling the eternal void as it exploded outward

The further it pushed into being, there was the light

Spurred on by its release into the short eternity

So once again Alpha reached out its hand for Omega

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

934                                      Utter Desolation

 

A feeling of utter space descends

Where have you come from? I ask myself

Why after all this time do you feel so?

Have you found so much space in there?

I tried to fathom the reason

Is it an age that has me gripped?

No I think not, it seems deeper than that

Search damn it, seek out a reason.

I turned to my senses and gazed

I gazed into more space out there

What the hell is going on I screamed

Where am I? I called talking to me.

You have become blind, not visually, mentally,

Wait I thought this could just end me.

Here and now there is nothing left to see

Oh come on, there is more to me than this.

Blast, so now I have to think of something

I know, I will find a starting point to me.

A shell that has thoughts that is here.

Who is thinking those thoughts in there?

Let me up I will seek me, out there

What was that, a shadow has formed

Glass, I need a reflection or something

Bloody hell is that me in memories mirror?

So where do we go from here? I asked.

Who are you talking to now stupid?

Have you found yourself out there yet?

Maybe, just maybe just stop laughing

Who are you? I didn’t hear you come in?

Have you been here long, can I leave now?

No! Rang out with jagged edges hurting me

We are here to clean your place up a bit.

I just ran to the corner and sat down.

Feeling hot river lines on my face.

I hid my head inside of my hands

One day, I screamed, One Day.

 

Eagles Eyes

I looked to the ground

There laid out below

Where all the world

Clear to me did show

Strange feelings

Touched my wings

A feeling of elation

There lightness begin

I moved my wings

So that I could see

Their golden glow

Silently lifting me

Air became a part of me

Force blended you see.

Becoming a golden blur

Harmonizing with air

I flow with the air

Thermals without care

Seeking food out

From everywhere

 

 

 

 

Below a creature so

Would sustain my flow

On breezes I play

This is always my way

I now show you

That a vision here

To take a rabbit clear

I have to my dear

I am the beauty

Of this domain

To live with you

I must stoop again

There is no suffering

I am the master

Of change to them

Clean transfer

Here and there

Theirs and mine

Joined as always

A space in time

 

 

 

851

Feelings

Tears descend

Only I know why

No you cannot come in

It is too crowded in here

You can never know

Of the thinking

Here I am me alone

Leave my thoughts to me

I will not look into your eyes

They will only twist my path

I now know true ways

I avert my eyes

My senses are now true

True to my love of love

I hear the laughter

Let the children sing

There they are free

Unconditional love

It is mine to watch and hold

How could I forget

I am now free of all things

They are as soft as wings

Angel wings hummingbird sings

The butterfly splashes its colours

These are the true feelings

These are the true colours

I will still remember you

As I follow my dreams

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

944

Walk With Me

I am tired, but will walk a while

I think that I will walk a mile

The leafy lane with hedges new

Birds singing there high in the blue

Of gravel sounds ringing gruff

It’s fun to kick and more to scuff

The style with its twisted wood

Beckons me as it only could

I raise my feelings jumping high

The meadow has caught my eye

The flowers all say hello to me

The daisies laugh the buttercups sigh

The grass a blanket where I could lie

I now am floating as a Honey bee

The meadow dips, the stream I see

It holds the water there for me

As it wanders through village and farms

For me though it just drifts along

Holding, Oh! Soft summer’s song

There I wander for time stands still

I’ll sit here a while to heal my ills

Breeze caressing my thoughts today

Warm and soft I hope they stay

I need you there to make me well

In my mind where I dwell

I am now refreshed somehow

I have returned to the now

My thoughts did wander so

 

 

744

 

Talk as shadows fall

We always talk as the shadows fall

There in our light, we just recall

The days of love, when we did feel

Before you were hurt and became so ill

Then you left my side and slipped away

I hear you there with some old friends

Playing games that seem to be without end

You are never tired now, as you use to be

I think that there is a better place you see

Where you are, no pain, you are so free

This is the place where we all must go

As soon as we end this journey below

To feel your thoughts at each closing day

To suggest to me in my mind’s eye

That we will meet in the by and by

In my soul where I hold you evermore

Life here is not quite the same as before

I have had to start all over again

These things you say, are for me to do

Now talk to me just as you use to

Tell me, of things as I am not sure

Should I be with another like you before.

Can I live my life and see things through

With someone that seems the same as you

It hurts to feel when I’m not so sure

This seems to have opened another door

Where life goes on as it did before

I hear you say to me now each day

Go live your life in the usual way

I am with you and there I will stay

 

 

 

A full Void

There is a hush, I think of you

There far out in space, I find you.

Why do you question my ways?

I have never told you wrong,

I tell you of words anew.

All my words sit with you

In that great void out there

They are part of all knowledge.

Do you let me think?

This you ask of me

Yes I talk to make you think.

You belong to this, I tell you

Where do I belong?

I hear you say

You belong to the whole

What is the whole?

The whole is eternal

The energy of eternity

Unconditional love

This is the whole

Why do I feel unsure?

To learn is why,

That you learn is paramount

Learn only the good things

Teach as you learn.

These things let you grow

What do I grow?

It is your Spirit that grows.

You came from eternity

As a child you crawled

As an adult you called

That I may hear you

To talk to each of us

Is to talk to the whole

I am you as you are I

We will meet there

Where shall we meet?

We have never been apart

That you should ask this of me.

Says that you are not ready

 

 

Holding

Of spiders webs and delicate things

Of powder of the butterflies wings

Of pebbles dropped into ponds

Of humming birds and loving words

Of peoples silent dreams

To hold the web of life so free

To let the powder touch your mind

To let wave on wave just travel on

To hear humming birds in song

To dream of other things

Be holding on to the web of life

Be delicate as the powder sounds

Be a slowly moving wave in time

Be lulled by the humming birds sound

Be then within your dreams

 

 

 

 

My soul cries

It cries for all the things I have to leave

It cries that others think that I should be

It cries for all the times I miss out

It just cries my love for all things

The morning comes to see that its day

It sees me cry at the things gone away

The birds sing I listen to them now

Of things that should be mine somehow

A day passes into evening time for me

It shows to me where i really want to be

It cries as it says the close of another day

That all the days things are gone away

Think of the things that maybe mine to be

Please hold me in your mind oh so gently

This is where you are for all the times

I cry, you cry, its right for our minds

Times pass into the ages of the years

Things change leaves fall more tears

To awake when things are now fine

It is deemed to be, you hold my mind

When later you look and there to see

What it was that we really wanted us to be

You will cry more tears for loving you so

To fill places till we had to let you go

In love and truth there you are to be

There in your soul you still have me

I wont fade as the two suns still shine

You are there and will always be mine

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“LOVE OF A STRANGER”

I loved the stranger the day he rode in.

Smooth leather seemed to cling to him.

A white handled colt slung low to his right.

No fear in his eyes, he was ready to fight.

Keep away from my right side my darling.

It’s the side that I carry my gun.

Death reaches out on that side my darling.

From this stranger who’s been on the run.

The sun threw our shadows short, then long.

He walked with me in the evening song.

There the moon brought us together.

I hoped our fire would last forever.

Don’t lay on my right side my darling.

It’s the side that I carry my gun.

Death reaches out on that side my darling.

From this stranger who’s been on the run.

The whole night through we spent at play.

In the peaceful place of his arms I lay.

That peace I felt as I was slowly falling.

I heard his voice to me gently calling.

Don’t sleep on my right side my darling.

It’s the side that I carry my gun.

Death reaches out on that side my darling.

From this stranger who’s been on the run.

The morning came with a new day true.

Clear air, birds singing, with a sky of blue.

We rode out of town to a place I knew.

Till long past noon as the darkness grew.

Don’t sit on my right side my darling.

It’s the side that I carry my gun.

Death reaches out on that side my darling.

From this stranger who’s been on the run.

As sundown came, they just couldn’t wait.

Men crazed with drink, so full of hate.

He took three of them before falling.

Reaching out, as though, he was calling.

Run away from my right side my darling.

It’s the side that I carry my gun.

Death reaches out on that side my darling.

From this stranger who’s been on the run.

I held him close as close could be.

As he, lay quietly on the ground.

His voice came so sweetly to me.

He took that last long look around.

You belong on my right side my darling.

It’s where I use to carry my gun.

My feelings for you will last forever.

I’m no longer a man on the run.

Of Later Days

There are days then there are days

Ones where we can just laze

In sunny places that we make

Others would make the world quake

This maybe is one of those

The future now has been foretold

In the recesses of my mind

The part of me here has become unkind

Therefore I now know what I must do

There are Angels my road to show

Who need to know that on my way?

They would like to see each day

Where I live and where I play

I thank them for the love they show

I carry it with me where ever I go

I will relate to them for them to know

Where I am so that I can show

That I love them, with my entire mind

The ones I cannot leave behind

For ones here who hold not so dear

All the thoughts that are held therein

You will always see that it was a sin

To treat such feelings without thinking

My little ones I love so and pray

That I can only hope that one day

Our paths will meet then we will say

I have loved more in every way

Those other creatures can understand

Our love is strong as the mighty oak

Then as gentle as a summer breeze

We live, we are, there are none to please

For deep inside our love will be

Held in souls love, for eternity

Yours and mine

The ideal ways of us would be

If it were possible to live in me

The dreams of early days are very plain

That we must as we are, remain

Pure as the driven snow

Held deep inside each other’s souls

Where one day I may awake and find

That all the things left in my mind

Of value, and when things to me are kind

There you will be standing with me

This is a dream that I hold so dear

It will keep away all the fear

Of not being there at hand

To guide your ways, as suns sometimes do

As stars held aloft navigators did use

If you look out during all the closings

Of your days, you will see me shine

I will shine for you in all the ways

That are in need for your special days

As those stars do shine, and we are one

In this way of love whatever may come?

Remember that I will be as a sun

The words that I have said to you

Hear them in all the things you do

As we go along the path of our ways

Separate or together at the close of days

Of the days we love, held within us to know

That it is us, as on we go

For ever,

Where ever you may be.

I paused to think of times gone by

Where people would not look into my eyes

For fear that there they would see

A reality of things there to be

I see love that has gone forever more

I see scars that are hidden that’s for sure

I see them as they really are

Then I see things better from afar

I feel a soul that wanders by

I will capture it as it would fly

Be with me now that you will see

From here into the feelings of reality

Of the mind seeking love from sources known

It’s with my love that I will roam

To be as one under one sun

As time to us goes slowly by

Love born of bleeding when battles won

Their hearts are free to everyone

Let’s look at those as we go by

They will not last for you or I

Let’s now look to me inside

Where nothing I fear ever tries

To hide from the one that feels

It’s me and mine its real

A thousand shimmering curtains fall

They hold your mind in ever awe

That you may see a dream

Of things you wish you’d ever seen

There is no way out as you will find

I have you trapped in my tender mind

Where things are what you need to be

Fulfilled in the hope that’s eternity

Feel my mind it’s so free

Of other feelings for you and me

To be tender in our ways

This feeling will last for many days

I touch your soul so gentle

Join in with this be sentimental

I feel your ways giving in to me

I will lift you so high you will see

There you are in love with me

Let me take you far away

Where feelings run for evermore

The joining of the soul to be sure

Let the curtain fall once again

I touch you, you live with flair

As the running of the deer

As it graces mountain air

To be there deep inside

I will cry within my soul

In happiness for we are told

It’s ours to give and take

There you hold on to me

We have no choice you see

It’s so good that you and me

Just feel the hours away

I will not need to wake this way

I know that here inside you will stay

For ours is to be and have

In our minds we will join

There is a thing that you have missed

I know of it and we must kiss

The hours away each and every day

If we are to stay this way

It will save you from the places

You may want to go with us as one

I take you there, as you are the sun

That warms my soul in peace that is

Deep in this the place that is mine

In deepest love to find us there

Holding, holding all things near

It’s the touching of the souls

Here you will feel the peace I say

It flows on and on, day, on day

As we lose our selves inside

No way will I now hide

From you that has brought the sun

As you have given to everyone

I give to thee in all feelings

The touch of you in your soul

The blinding flashes that are only seen

Are feelings that have been?

Hidden deep inside your mind

Now give them to me it’s the souls we see

Bare all there is no pain just light

That will refrain from all that’s gone

This is where you belong

Inside my soul with feelings new

Now take oh take me as you do

In touching of our minds

I give to you freely all of the time

For you to rest your soul

Now come to me in innocents

As on our way we go

With feelings left from other times

That we no longer show

Just hold me in your mind

Leave everyone behind, be lost in me

Take my ways join these new days

Float now on our cloud we need

You now give to me things left in secret

The feelings never seen

Its holding I am and you are a queen

That will carry feelings for my mind

There are worlds we now will leave behind

As we find our souls

That joined here as we talked in mind

To be as one no-one can find

There is no end to us you see

There is only you and I

To live this now is for me fine

In this space in time

One day there will be I foretell

After several tears that make eyes swell

A peace for you to forever be

Close in my mind for us to see

One soul

 

 

 

 

The River Waters

The soul is still and deep with waters green

It hides me from the things I’ve been

To wander there at its side

To see the stories that it hides

Each day to be

Shallow waters are like the tongue

Talks so much to everyone

It tells of stories that were fun

It bubbles then catches the sun

It runs to fast

Waters wide with depth anew

Gives me the picture that of you

Where there for hope it flows with pride

Its banks are strong on either side

Is seen as you

Let waters run or drift slowly through

To the future they flow with you

To carry things that is needed now

To bring to me things that somehow

Belong to me

The rivers of my mind are strong

They carry me as I go along

In safety from the maddening folk

That would try to see my ways

From other days

I seek the shelter of the sea

Its arms are held so wide for me

I will twist and turn then find my way

Held in its arms where I will stay

In love to be

Now as the sea I beat the shore

As wave on wave I need some more

The feelings that I use to hide

Is as the sea now a new tide?

To care for me

Each wave I bring you fresh and new

Feelings that are born so true

But different as the days go by

It’s as life that’s passing by

See me there

As the tide now races out

It takes me with no need to shout

We can now whisper all the names

Of mine and theirs to be

Remain a part of me

I love the way of your being

I watch the waves with feeling

They keep my mind to rest in them

I belong now to everyone

In life to be

Out in the Oceans of the world

I go the way with spirits unfurled

With gentleness that carries the seed

Of life to all the ones that really need

Await new seed

The sunshine does draw me

It makes the rain that sets me free

Carried aloft as a gentle rain

To be returned to the river once again

A new life to be

She’s Alive

She’s alive he shouted to the trees,

As he walked within their arms

They whispered gentle, she’s alive,

As the breeze entwined their charms

She’s alive the grass would answer,

As it lay there on the ground

It lay as a blanket spread,

Just like her velvet gown

She’s alive he kept on crying,

From within his noisy realm

As if to catch a moment gone,

Where he knew she would be found

That as the world kept turning,

To him she would belong

She’s alive he cried for hours

To tell to everyone his song

A divinity held within his mind,

Like a goddess of the sun

She’s alive the cry would echo,

Through his mind as only he could see

That what he had, was always

Held within his memory

She’s alive echoed through the void,

That’s where he preferred to stay

As touched by nothing was the thing,

So nothing crossed his way

She’s alive to escape reality

That’s where he went to play

A vision to pass all loveliness,

Locked in his mind she’d stay

She’s alive was his way of looking

At today that he may live

Or to live until he reached that day,

When she would just arrive

Then to shout he would only whisper

There she really is alive

To my friends

If you see a star out there

One that seems to wink at you

It will be me as happy as can be

Cause I love you all so

This life now will take a turn

For the peace we all yearn

As you all have been with me

At each twist and turn

Of this life’s journey of mine

How can I thank you all

So that you will know

How much you mean to me

There is no way, so from today

I will be just me for all those

That sees me as I am

To those who walked with me

Who wanted to hold, my hand

I give you all the love I can

Be it held deep within you

I carry it now, it saw me through

Then happiness of young boys

Who have the best toys?

Of the maidens that know

That they are loved so

To you that held me

In your loving arms

Through darkened days

With your lovely ways

There you’re calm outside

Calmed the turmoil

Deep, so deep inside

This all, is now shared

As we belong to all

There evermore will be

Where my for ever friends

Are held within me

To my loves

Who number few on earth.

What do you think I would do?

Without you to hold me so well

There are things locked in minds

That I can never tell or leave behind

Of things felt with you at my side

This journey will have been so dull

If we had not been as we are

For to love you there or here

From afar is more than to be

I will always love your ways

The tales we tale of now things

Then again of bygone days

I love you all, as autumn comes

To this land which I now find

Walking with me there my loves I see

By the shores of everyone’s destiny

Know that I love them and they me

To those forever in my mind

You will never be left behind

Take me where so ever you may go

As truth is pure, I love you all so

To those that realize, that my love

For them shines within my eyes

They will cry tears for days gone by

When you all walked with me

I would hold you so high

There your tears, I would kiss and dry

In lands afar where we would fly, for fun

To live some lives we have just begun

To love you, so that people know

Who you really are

Be loved I say by this humble one

Who would walk with you

In the early morning sun

To hold you as you held me

Our love to last eternally

Be truth, to those you love around

That I am here, I make no sound

To disturb the air that holds you there

I am inside of all your ways

To be there for all the days

Just incase you need me so

My love for you will always be

Touching the ways you need of me

It can be there for all to see

It’s just a case, of if it will be, told so

One day as the winter takes its toll

Of people that we all use to know

Let me be there for your memories

There held still in your mind

As fresh as the a day you did find

That it was me there waiting for you

To hold and share all life’s things

In a life that’s pure and true

Where all the things you are, and do

Always remember me, and that

I will always love you

Your,

Ian.T

 

 

 

Another write of:-

To my loves

Who numbered few.

What on earth do you think I would do?

Without you to hold me so well

There are things locked in minds, that I can never tell

Of things felt with you all there by my side

This journey would be so dull

If we had not been as we were

For to love you there or here from afar, is more than to be

I loved your ways,

The tales we told of now things, and of bygone days

I loved you all as the autumn came to this land

Walking with me there are loves that I saw

By the shores of destiny

That I loved them and they me

To those loves that are, I am forever in their minds,

You will never be left behind

Take me where so ever you may go,

As truth is pure, I loved you all so

To those that realized, that my love for them

Was in my eyes

That cried tears for me for the days gone by

When they walked with me

When I held them high, there their tears I would kiss and dry

To love you so that people knew who we really were

To have been loved I say by this humble one

Who did walk with you in morning suns?

To hold you as you held me our love to last eternally

Be truth to those you love around

That I am here, I make no sound,

To disturb the air that holds you there

I am inside of all of your ways;

There to be for all the days, you need me

My love for you touches all the ways you need of me

It can be there for all to see,

It’s just a case of if it will be, told so

One day as winter takes its toll

Of people that we all use to know

Let me be there for your memories still

In the sanctuary of your mind

As fresh as the a day you did find me there

Waiting for you to hold and share

A life that’s pure and true in all the things you are and do

Always remember, that I will always love

You

Was thinking of you

There is a silence I feel inside my soul

What you may ask should make it go

A picture across the miles

Would make me think then many smiles

To fill this silence here inside

Where tears do form and true feelings hide

It’s you alone can complete this task

As you are to me just all I ask

Then the silence looms again

It is not so my little friend

Those feelings meet on waves so high

Of visions that you and I

Will melt a thousand suns

Time of all things curse to me

The only true time is eternity

This all things shrink from and die

It’s there that two will become just one

No time difference between the suns

Who can be held in each other’s arms?

To tangle there to show the charms

That attracted them in their very souls

It’s hard to see that living now

With spaces in time that somehow

Drift our bodies far apart

It’s for the best that we both see

That we may have to meet in eternity

There laying claim to that we understand

In feelings of love, or just holding hands

For all things then they will see

A special place for just you and me

To stay as one for ever time

To mingle thoughts to be one mind

It’s done for you and me

There in the heavens that we share

Not two are seen just anywhere

But one Sun

 

 

0003

 

Me

I am you see in my entirety

A person whose mind is so free

But things that are said affect my head

To bring me some misery

Look inside to where I really hide

There you will see me completely free

In love with Oh! So many things

Of people and places my soul sings

What of sadness and of the tears

I hear you say that throughout the years

Has plagued my outward ways

It’s learning I say for later peaceful days

To spend in peace with you

Whoever takes the time to look through

There within to find this soul of mine

Then love me so as on I go

Yenti

 

 

 

 

Closeness

I touched your heartbeat in my mind

It raced away as did the time

The moments spent with you

Where delicate skins perfume

Did linger till well past noon

As I held you close to me

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The before times

There are many things that I have to tell

Of times in the past that were hell

Now they were from long time ago

Of lives gone by we know

The stories they tell are for everyone

These things are reflected in your ways

A feeling of loss from before your days

Of a people who walked across many lands

They shed many tears.

For the ones, that they lost on their way

They had no time for hanging on

They went on with things so we would belong

They sang they danced along their path

It was part of them

To where you find yourself at last

Hidden memories you still hold

From the people that lived long time ago

It’s not for us to question why

They did it for me

It’s my job to learn to live for them

Least they die in Eternity

As big as the Sky

If you sit alone when the evenings nigh

Your computer is off or where am I

We can at least read some old mail

A poem, or so, which stories tell.

From our friends, and more important you

A picture scanned, then sent on its way

Will tell a tale more than words can say

Of people in separate places

Who wished for things.

From the many people without faces

The feelings that have been so true

Can now be directed at you

Who has a beautiful face and body to.

We still wish for things

Not for what we are but what we do

I can now think of the many things

That is running through this mind

For you to use when comes the time

To fly afar from home

Please use my thoughts don’t be alone

Sweet friend you will always be

A part of joined minds for eternity

I hope that in the days to come

You will keep for me

A special place to walk in the sun

As day on day just passes us by

Its tears we shed when each are nigh

Not that we have things to rue our ways

It’s fun to be someone, with someone.

We shed a tear for all the lost days

In later days before memories fade

I think you’ll find gifts put in your way

From people that you should have known

But hid from all the time

There you will find peace of mind

Now this journey is long oh so long

When you are dragged by things gone

Tarry not along the desperate ways

Just find the sun

Then think of the better days

I wish

That all the things, which are forever good

Would come to you, as I know they should

Because you are an Angel left on this earth

That other people now see, not just me

Take to you all these feelings of mine

Leave all those past tears far behind

They are not for Angels to make you blue

There are people that really love you

I will do all the crying so that you will see

There are some that feel and want to be

Close to that soul of yours there inside

Where there is a beauty you cannot hide

Take care with you, as your journey runs

There are new times coming of life’s funs

Of feeling free to walk this sacred soil

This is there for you, where you must toil

Take with you all the best parts of me

My hopes, love, my sanity, are thoughts of you.

Then this journey for you in love you will see

Will be beautiful for you, as an Angel, just be

“Listen to your soul”

There is a hush as the sea gently flows back and forth

Onto the Golden sands we know

There caught in the light of true feelings are two people

Holding on to each other’s souls

Their smiles are as the Angels in the knowledge

Of their joined being, with a trust so true

Their laughter is as the babbling mountain streams,

As they catch the sun scattering on morning dew

Where words are no longer used,

As looks portray a love of the ages, they have captured anew

Where the trust of two souls lives on,

In the whirlpools of their ageless time,

Held in laughter yours and mine

I hold your soul is the sound echoing across the waters

I hold your soul with my love that’s true it never alters

I give to you my all, is the reply.

That mimics the echo of two souls

Held aloft, for all to see.

You are a special creature that’s held in me

This chrysalis state waiting for the sun to warm its ways

You will emerge as a beautiful butterfly

Of feelings soon to be free and new,

With love to give forever days

Hold on to these places and things

That is sweet to your life’s blood,

And the blood of your life as heaven above

Hold them close for they, can only see

The veils of time, shrouded for you and me.

As I hold your soul so close to mine

Give only to those that earn your love

Trust the feelings of those above.

The trust of bygone days tempered for you

To give to me the hope that in your future times

There will be us building for your days of life and love

Build on sweetest thought, of life that you are

Where the heavens have loaned us one of theirs, from afar

Build within the confines of your mind,

So that you are a tower of strength for yours and mine

That need you so, then you would not let go

But at the same time we would be free

A story

I did write a story just for you

The words went wrong, quite untrue

In loving ways, then other things

To be there when our bells ring

The silence grew as I tried to speak

Then words fell out in little squeaks

Of the days of things, where fun was had

Hours spent, when we were both sad

Then days of holding you there, in fun

Then woe days with me, we were as one

What can I say, that in love portrays

The things that run here in my ways

These story tales, which don’t go well

For us together, we should dwell

For it’s so hard to think, and speak

When confusion reigns in the lives we seek

I’ll start a story, which is oh so true

Of what really was and what we should do

If yesterday would get out of the way

It changes things we mean today

A truth cannot live or stay the same

A story changed, I’ll start again

To a muse

If I talk to you and you did not hear

Should I then shout a bit, to make it clear?

Would you not speak to me, in happy times?

Or waste hours of quiet, and pay me no mind

To the troubles brought up to your door

Lets’ just ignore them now, and for ever more

As any trouble that we have, is yesterdays past

There is a time for us and we will make it last

Where life does start, and finds us somehow

Alone in this world, we know so well

Not ready to begin again, lest woe should come

To dwell in yesterday is no fun

Forward to go, if future tales are told

We should join our lives, before we are old

To look ahead into the coming years

What would you see through all the tears?

Of our yesterdays that we know so well

It’s where we live, it’s where we dwell

Let’s look at now, and what is there seen

A space for us that is just between

Yesterday’s tears and tomorrows fears

Will find us, as a cold wind that sears

So let us stay for a while, in this quiet time

To hold, to love, for you to be mine

Indignant

Why is that so, do you need to know?

What troubles there are in my soul?

Of people that aren’t, but should be here

Of feelings that aren’t really mine to bear

Day on day and weeks go by my mind

I went away and left you so far behind

But the distance had grown, before I came away

It was to show you, that there’s no more today

I cried a while before the leaving days

I cried some more, along these hard ways

The anger grew, so as the distance spread

This taught me strength, here inside my head

To endure through the separate ways of life

To help you if there should be some strife

I worry that others may misuse you so

As I find have to find a new way to go

It will not be fun for day on day

I am so cross that this did come my way

People who have differing points of view

Told by me, or just told, thereby you

Should truth have been always told?

There in time to come, as we grow old

Instead of pain for what was wrongly said

A long life shared, could have been instead

Why Does It Hurt

My soul is hurt time and time again

When I hear of another soul suffering

How can this be fair I ask in my mind,?

That my life is good, even in my bad times?

Others have surpassed, all the things that hurt me!

Where then I ask would the fairness be

Why do they have to suffer so?

A gentle voice did whisper in my mind

When they left the spirit world behind

It was the things that they had to learn,”

Why so harsh”? I did reply to the voice inside.

“Their paths crossed others there they collide”.

They had to learn of things from another’s view

Or to teach others, that had lessons too!

Why do we have to learn so, on this plain?

The answer came quietly to me again.

“We test the spirit only in this earth’s domain

As a truly physical form it’s not the same

You have set tasks, the day you are born

You enter the earth plain as you did before”

Why then are these things so hard for me?

That captures my mind and my liberty?

“The choice was yours and will always be

That you may become pure, in our eternity”

Is this then the fate of earth’s human beings?

“Yes”! the voice said, “To become spirit feelings”

What are your values, in the place you are?

I have been told it’s just a thought not far

“We strive to be pure, of mind and thought

Where love is the paramount thing taught

To try and tell you, as to what we become

Or how we live in a place that to some

Is impossible to let your present mind see

Just believe that we live in eternity”!

A beautiful light shone there within me

The reason then for us, all on earth to be.

To build a spirit, so pure with love, the reality.

Of life here and all the things that are wrong?

I walk with you on your journey, hold my arm

I will always protect your spirit from harm

With that it was the end of think talk

Just believe in yourself and with me walk

I speak in gentle tones

It’s with humility

I talk with you

It’s with feelings strong

I walk with you

As we have to say

Of people along the way

Come be with me

We are both so free

That today is

The first day of before

Of all the things

That we did endure

To waken and see

The things you can be

Even if it is shown

In poverty this poverty

Then just to be

Is good enough for me

If it means that I will be

Then I am

To Burns

The little beasty that you did make

Would even make an elephant quake

Then write of other things in rhyme

It’s fun to leave lots of things behind

Then tell, tales of fun things that be

Especially rhymes of you and me

Whose worlds of rhymes

That verses do separate?

As I am now,

Which is much too late?

To join your clan up in the north

For whom is it really worth, or be,

That means not much to me.

 

 

 

 

Reflection

The sprites fled the goblins stayed

Was this the winter of my days?

Or just the thought that had gone astray

To haunt me now in these later ways

Did I do all things that were true?

Could I have hurt one such as you?

I feel that in my journey through

That maybe something better I could do

There I hope that in all my days

That all the bad things in my ways

Would not be shown to other beings

But kept deep inside with other feelings

Then in the winter of the years to see

In reflection of the things done to thee

The persons that have met with me

That as this winter of my days came so

The sprites did stay.

The goblins did go.

Statements

Statement I thought it mulled in my mind

A word in stone when you leave all behind

A word spoken as if in a vow

That somehow escapes my mind just now

A letter of love sent in one day

To send feelings as you did sway

A word in anger that rang so true

Of something bad being done to you

A written verse that’s gone on its way

To editors and printers for ever to stay

A cry of joy on lips that’s heard

That makes people smile and frightens birds

A wish so silent there inside your view

That would be so lovely if it came true

So if you do make one of these

If loud or soft, or just to please

Make sure that at the very start

That the feelings of these come from

The Heart

My Ragged Vest

Dear friend take to you each day

These words that I have sent your way

To keep warm the feelings that we know

Of days of laughter not so long ago

If I should ever there in your mind

Leave you with your feelings far behind

Just show me the new ways to go

That I will always treat you so

That in this our allotted time

Will keep each other so fresh in mind

That warmth and love will always be

Retained in our hearts where none can see

These verses that I send to you

Will with our autumn just see us through?

For sunny days held deep within our minds

The warmth of you I’ll not leave behind

 

 

Just Help Me

In walking with me in the sun

Can I not teach you to have some fun?

Throw cares at hope then watch me smile

Push pain away with dreams for a while

Despair will follow if we learn to care

Loneliness will go if we just share

Let distance shrink by meeting somewhere

Teach me that I should know your ways

That I can help you on those bad days

Show me where there is a hurt

That I may heal with love

With thoughts that we both can feel

Down Time

It’s strange that days do seem so few

There are gaps of things I did with you

Why tell me why, what did I do

To chase even memories so far away

A feeling of futility does feed my days

Since the things of life are barred this way

Of being as I was to us forever stayed

In ways of being one yet we still did stray

There was no choice or so it seemed

Those days of looking for, or something gleaned

From a life that we could think that’s new

This was the only excuse for leaving you

As time passes so and new memories do grow

I will think of you and me just so

That will always be remembered the same

There never to be that together again

It’s with sadness that does destroy the dream

Of new open days where no children seen

Where we could walk on with lots of miles

Hand in hand with many smiles

That having fulfilled a task well done

It was now our time to walk in the sun

But as two suns held in heavens velvet arms

We had to separate or come to harm

Travel on as you wish to be

In your freedom and love of your liberty

That was always held for you and me

Here in each other’s arms

Enjoy

Happy thoughts and Happy Days

Of flower filled fields and summer haze

It leaves me smiling as if I’m dumb

To walk or run there in the sun

The autumn day, Twix the sun and snow

We will kick up the leaves as on we go

A freedom that we have now just found

Dried leaves and thoughts of rainbow sounds

Of days for us in our years

Gone are the teardrops and the fears

As winter even as it will soon come

An imaginary snowman built for someone

Take on this journey you with me

Or as I say maybe both separately

With contacts that will shake your tum

For on we now go, in love and fun

A New Path

You must now that trouble is done

Come walk with me to find the sun

We can, as we know us so well

Talk and sort then do things to tell

Others that have stood in our ways

That we have decided to enjoy our days

All the burdens and obstacles put in our path

Just look behind see them there then laugh

Ahead are paths that only we can choose

We can walk together then we cant loose

That we can now look so far around

A path for one or two will be found

So start today lets be on our way

Together though we may not stay

The journey through

 

Sarum’s Child

In this city where I lay

There sits a child of stone and clay

It sits there in its stony world

Spoilt by its servants as they yield

To its absolute and unquestionable need

Brought on by their everlasting greed

They will deny that they serve the stone

But the people around who have wasted days

Is a testament to their ungodly way’s

Although if asked they will sing his praise

To the one true God, of their bye gone days

All the people gone of the old days true

Trodden to dust as the lookers troop through

This stone child who supplies all your needs

Who crushed a city and most of its seeds

Looks down on you without a touch of grace

The pyramids might as well take its place

There with the guards looked on fertile land

Who now looks at a landscape of sculptured sand.

In time to be where nothing is planed

To Be True To Us

I have been commissioned by my soul

To at least let you for all time to know

That in all truth and love I have to let you go

It said to me could you not see

That what you made is now

With love and dreams then wishes true

We built a beautiful woman just for you

To watch as a guardian of Angels three

A perfect place, a position to be

The truth I told to you long days ago

That to drift away when I had made you so

This was prime directive one

There in the sky were two suns

That touched their souls on passing by

The touch that caused even the Angels to cry

 

It was told that in this fleeting time

Each sun held the other, so deep in mind

They stood there still, as was their destiny

They swapped their love and stored the energy

For all times held just you and me

Now that their journey has again begun

Is held of each, in the soul of each one

The distance now as they have to fly

Grows greater in their own velvet sky

The changes made of their touching days

Eternally held as they wend their ways

To meet one day, as all matter must come

There in eternity to shine as one sun

Me Silly

This morning before the sun reached out

Climbing for its place in the heavens day,

I walked outside to greet it as is my way

On my beautiful lawn were a lot of bumps,

Was I cross, I could have spit snakes,

Turned to find a roller or rake

But before this task was through

That voice came and told me of you

“Look at what your friends have done”

In the growing light I saw that the lumps

In the shape of footprints, not ugly bumps

As if someone had been walking there

In my garden it didn’t seem fair

Tears rolled down my cheeks with ease

As I knew just what they were

My friends all over in this world

Like you, had to be silly, had to care

Now my lawn is more beautiful

Than any I have ever seen.

Feet prints there in profusion green

From billiard table top, to this shrine

Thank you all, you friends of mine

A dragon

I knew instantly what I could see

There flashing in the sunlight

Caressing the air with electricity

A Dragon flying there towards me

There came a gentle sighing sound

“Hello to you that’s Earth bound”

The mighty beast did say to me

His Spirit Friend spoke soft and low

“What is it that you wish to know?”

We spoke of things I needed so

A rainbow of colour, our talk flowed

Thought took over, as was their way

In an instant all question were told

Stories of love and people bold

Of fear that grew throughout the years

At this, he shed some sparkling tears

We had touched on memories bare

That he would rather have left there

His world had shrank and gone away

He resides in the world of dreams today

It mattered not he sent out to me

As they now live in Spirits Infinity

I came here today just to see

One of you who still did believe

The mighty creature stood so tall

The light danced I stood in awe

Then realised what Dragons were

A thought a dream nothing more

But in that dream of years gone by

We made him great and let him fly

Added fire to purify our ways

A beautiful creature, dream filled days

Now we have made him, he must be

In Spirit time for all now to see

A creature so great we have made

At the rainbows end there he stays

My Brother

A last fight for you here before you journeyed through

Our Mother Father and Brother and Sister were awaiting you

Fear not the journey as you were good

They in the realms of your new world have understood

To now ask of your ways here on this plain

More good you did for your Spirit’s gain

We will meet again as Spirits anew

When I also journey on to be with you

To be left behind to carry on with things

Is part of life here and a sadness brings

Where you are now is journeys end

My love and thoughts to you I send

The world you are in and now aware

Is a beautiful place without a care

One day there we will meet again

Roses

the love of a rose

my stigma touching your scent

awaits my inhale

Raticus and Me

I am here you cry

But only the rat hears

This matters not

For over the years

A bond has grown

This bond shows love

This furry creature gives

Is as the world should be

Unconditional in its ways

Showing pure love to me

Why has this become so

Where the world went away

Cruel people used my space

I could not fight them

Their behaviour a disgrace

What of me then here I am

Time they say the healer

No not just another man

People that here do dwell

The meek shall ring the bell

The mirror that hangs

Reflection you there see

Has been nothing positive

Not quite your reality

Tell it that you love it so

Each day things better grow

Where the love will spread

Out there so far and wide

Raticus and you need not hide

As the world will be love again

The first step is so hard to do

Love of things will see you through

I see a banner flowing in the air

Raticus and Rosina came to share

All the love that we have out here

Three in One

For Rosina that loves her rat

A Feet of Love

This morning before the sun reached out

Climbing for its place in the heavens day,

I walked outside to greet it as is my way

On my beautiful lawn were a lot of bumps,

Was I cross, I could have spit snakes,

Turned to find a roller or rake

But before this task was through

That voice came and told me of you

“Look at what your friends have done”

In the growing light I saw that the lumps

In the shape of footprints, not ugly bumps

As if someone had been walking there

In my garden it didn’t seem fair

Tears rolled down my cheeks with ease

As I knew just what they were

My friends all over in this world

Like you, had to be silly, had to care

Now my lawn is more beautiful

Than any I have ever seen.

Feet prints there in profusion green

From billiard table top, to this shrine

Thank you all, you friends of mine

More Feet

I walk the land, it talks to me

No I am not strange, or silly

First I tried my lawn out there

Friends came from everywhere

The lumps and bumps there to see

My lawn stretches out to eternity

It hit my ways as now each day

I stroll in thoughts on green ways

Standing still as one by one

My friend’s prints I stand upon

Aussie ones with dusty toes

State side bigger ones do show

A feeling that is mostly there

Is that the treader really cares

This has started something new

An instant in time I stand with you

Friends come and they do go

But their foot prints are there

As if they had walked in snow

Each telling me, they know

There are strangers prints there

I say so welcome you are

Special places now put aside

Some I see and I have cried

The soldiers marched around

Leaving footprints on the ground

They are a great treasure to me

Telling stories of love in eternity

Present friends the new prints are

Great that my lawn stretches so far

Remember to make your own

A swathe of grass to eternity thrown

Feel that Earth beneath your feet

Reach out to people in your street

Tell them of a new thing found

Of beauty in footprints on the ground

Can I Feel you there

I went outside and there the grass was strewn

Around as if at random, on the edge of a balloon

But there must be a purpose to all these things

It just can’t be that this carpet so clean

Is a blanket for me, of a beautiful green.

I think a plan has made things this way

This grass is where I will walk today

Wait I heard a voice inside, before you go

Let’s try something new, with people so

Can you all do something just for me

I will remove my shoes and socks no fear

Walk out on the grass with feet all bare

I’ll think, feel, you there, where ever you be

The ground you stand on is the same as me

Distance is not far, just down and down

Only if I could align my feet just so

With feelings of love send signals below

There far away on the other side

Another foot with no feelings to hide

I will tell my children this thing to do

If in later life they wish to stand with you

To join in this game to become maybe so real

People of the Earth will learn to stand still

Joining with all others to try to cure ill

Or just to talk of things gone by

 

A Garden

I found a garden waiting for me

Laid out as my life should be

The reality became quite blurred

In the garden a flock of birds

Showing me what things were for

I asked them to fly or show me more

All but one took to the air

To move one grain here wasn’t fair

The Toki stood just to one side

In perfection nothing to hide

It told me of stories from overseas

Could you talk of me? I asked it “please”?

Your journey here is plain to see

I am not real, I live in eternity

Please hold my mind for all that be

Call my friends to walk and visit me

Toki called my friends from everywhere

As birds a noisy flock they appeared

Footprints again from those that cared

Why do they come, to visit and share?

The Toki seemed to laugh at my plight

Stay, Oh Stay, please don’t take flight

At this he shook as if laughing so

You take your friends where ever you go

Then let them see the things I see

The peace here and other places that be

This garden will focus their minds

On the inside that always shines

At this the footprints in the sand

Beautiful shapes from other lands

I was awestruck at the ones I could see

Prints left in white sand by you and me

We whispered of all the things we knew

Then of hurts and fears filling us anew

There in the garden it was safe you see

There to tell all of the things that be

This was a glimpse the Toki said

Of eternity and the things we dread

Once you have faced all these fears

Love is there for the rest of your years

Remember that all you have to do

In the future to talk, with me or you

Is to think of us as free spirits all

Just whisper my name no need to call

Yenti

 

A Journey

I looked down to where my feet should be

There small clouds of red dust I did see

Where am I? and the thought echoed back to me

“A street in some place they call Taree”

Why am I here I asked in soft tones?

“You are here to help heal a Spirit friend”

But that is physical and I am spirit free?

I can only heal thought and memory?

“This is all we have asked of you

This task is not that hard to do

You can watch over the spirit there

Give it rest and lots of things to share”

“That you are here is all we can do

Of times needed to see this through”

Will they know we are with them here?

The things we do are often not clear

We travel the Earth plain far and near

A sight here and a warm feeling so

A task done, support given, on we go

To return to the spirit world we know

The Calendar

Cata Strophe was a master mason

Travelled the world visiting many nations

As a man of those in testament old

He wandered the earth or so it is told

Helping to carve many stone things

In Egypt where Pharaoh’s are kings

The Sphinx he did for the pyramid so

Great Obelisk’s carved with gusto

He said it was not to them he belonged

His work was the worlds so he journeyed on

Leaving them he went out across the sea

To Europe where many others would be

All Europe gained by his teaching days

Carved stones standing he showed them the ways

Sometime later in Ireland he carved a few things

There in Dublin he met the Viking Kings

They told him of a new world across the sea

It was vast, and there he could be happy

He asked them if they could take him there

This they did and he arrived without a care

Here he found nations of many gentle people

In skin pointed houses no stone so simple

He found that this was a beautiful place

Gaining the knowledge of the human race

Not the life we know, but the spirit life

Cata spent many years without strife

Travelling south with the plains people so

He crossed the dry lands into Mexico

Here he started to carve stone for their city

This time was short and that was a pity

Some of his work you will already know

It rests in the old city far below

Wandering South, he found a beautiful place

With mighty trees and much food and space

Here he settled working for many a year

He took himself a wife of the people there

They called themselves the Mayan people

They loved stone, and life was quite simple

It was easy there and his life was good

A calendar for them for the life and food

A mighty task would keep him there

He had to travel far to give his family care

By this time a Son and Daughter’s three

But he had little time with them as you and me

Cata toiled with the calendar chipping away

The people were pleased asking more each day

There they would gather to watch him toil

Carving the days and years, rumours of turmoil

Year after year he carved as if for always

His calendar was reaching into future ways

He had very little time to visit his family

Cata it’s said would no longer dally

One day the people gathered at the calendar

Cata could not be found in his usual manner

The calendar stopped at 21st of December 2012

Joining his family his work he shelved

He left their world in a boat made of reeds

With his family, some friends and lots of feed

They had been told of an Island far away,

That bears the name of another holiday

Cata it was told stopped carving the days

He took to statues, this his giant phase

Carving giant faces with hats in stone

The people there placed them row upon row

It is sad to say the great Cata didn’t stay

His family and friends grew most passed away

It is told that they had a war

Leaving just his statues, they left the shores

They are there on that distant shore

Looking out to sea, waiting for you or me

It is the Mayan calendar that worried us so

Until this story was told, we didn’t know

Cata smiles at the trouble he caused

A calendar that foretold nothing at all

It was just a task that was given to him

As a Master Mason it was sink or swim

It has been rumoured I must say

That Cata fled and to this day

We are trying to find where he did go

So that we can end his story so.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today

We will always be here

I cannot leave you alone

To wander without talking

Talk to me in gentle tones

Hard words shatter on my mind

They can never come in

Gentle talk will warm me

Touch my soul it yearns to talk

Stand not in the shadows

As to stand in the light

I can see your beauty

This is where I will love you

Stay still in your mind

I will feed you if hungry

Only feast on wonders around

Touch things with a thought

Learn to love all you see

The reflection will light your way

Just talk to me as you walk on

I will listen, then, talk anew

Another me, Just too much

I sat quietly by the rivers side

Thinking of things that did hide

There before me walked a person so

I ask where from and where you go

You have made me in your mind

Now I must leave my world behind

Joining you in your shallow way

To do your biding come what may

Here I thought what I have done

To create such a person for my fun

That it had to join me here on this bank side

Instead of flying so free where it resides

I took its ways with my thoughts again

To try to return it to it rightful domain

I knew it to me had such a journey travelled

A “Facsimile of the human psyche unravelled.”

Today I take more care in things I ask

The stranger that looked at me aghast

In some quirky way seemed to belong to me

Maybe thoughts and him belong in eternity

Mystic Creatures

I seemed to have been drawn into another world

There in the gentle light stood a beautiful young girl

She stood gazing at a beautiful formation of lava rocks

The formation seemed to belong to the ages now gone

Here I could only think not talk as here it was usual to do

“Hello young lady” I sent to her with a loving thought

“Where are we” and “Are you alone in your being”?

Her light brought a tear to my soul as she replied

“I am the spirit of this great Dragon” she sent to me

I realised what my vision was, there on the ground

The grey lava rocks were the life form of a mighty Dragon

Had I looked from a distance it would have made sense

The lava rock head and neck of such a wondrous creature

I looked further to where an arch glistened with rainbow sun

Then I knew that this where the wings with which it flew

Scattered around were shield shaped scales colours only dreamed of

I felt a great sadness at this sight and turned to the lady to ask why

It came to me with love from ages gone by, that she was the spirit

This was her Dragon and together they had flown long time ago

“Why then”? I sent to her, could this mighty creature be now so

 

It is because the Earth creatures did think of us no more

“We of the Spirit flying so free, held by the thoughts of you

Many creatures of our Spirit land are calling out to be reborn

As the Phoenix and our lovely Unicorn, held in mind for all to know

Now leave me with him as I must soon go, to find a Spirit so”

I left the young lady, re-crossing back to whence I came

I thought of the things she had said to me, not to be left in memory

There on this day I vowed, to see more clear the creatures there

I thought a mighty dragon, with a Spirit lady guiding his great form

This was the day I renewed the creatures in the spirit so

That they are eternal and need not be reborn but thought of

A great light came on and there in their world they were formed

A voice, soft as love could be, came into my thoughts to thank me

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Memory

I touched your hand

Something changed

Never be normal again

How could this be

I had guarded my ways

Yet there you broke through

Days were spent

Talking and just being

Afraid to touch just feeling

Nothing stayed the same

I showed you a crystal

You stopped kicking stones

You taught me a peace

I would never be alone

This touch was passing

Together we couldn’t be

One wind cooled you

Another warmed me

The distance did grow

As a velvet moss on a tree

One side only could see

There held to face life’s storm

As your peace held my mind

I would never know

What I had left behind

Many years passed me by

Snow fell then the sun

Nothing could warm me

As you then had done

I hold you in my soul

Others come and go

They touch me just so

Always hidden from view

That long years can do

That memory of you

Will stay always with me

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To walk there

I will take you where you should be

Enclosed and safe but also free

Where as a youth I spent many an hour

The songs of the birds, the show of flowers

Turn to the right and see the path

Brush aside the sight of those blue skies

Walk with my trees they hold no airs

Feel them close around your cares

Leaving thoughts of sickness far behind

Ahead is the glade I know locked in time

Its arms whisper here you may rest

Sit where the Oak has made you a nest

A bough that dips and curves at your feet

The grass of beauty here is so green

It holds your feet as you are a queen

Hold a thought there deep in the mind

Of quiet peace that creeps as a vine

Hear not of babble of voices there

Just let the breeze play with your hair

Let thoughts of just being you

Run riot in your mind through

Feel all the places you have loved

To brush and touch thoughts anew

Of things left for time, still to do

Rest with the reasons of the years

Tired you are of holding others dreams

Let them see you in the scheme of things

Now sit and talk to whoever you see

Ask of them “What do you want of me?”

They will pause and you will feel them so

For you to hold and not let go

Stop there for a moment or two

Look inside then see the real you

Not the tired one of others times

The inner beauty that always shines

Bathe in this time they will give to you

This rest here will see you through

When ready to look at blue skies

Hold out your hand open your eyes

The woods will fade away as the dew

They say, ”Thanks for being just you”

“Walk within our ways if needs may be

Just turn right at the nearest tree”

 

After Time

I give you thoughts

To settle on your mind

As the first snow’s of winter

Yet I warm your ways

To make you think

Of things not seen

But dreamed of

A trust that in my words

That truth will be found

In the words to answer

There are many things

That my soul is told

Then things to share

Now as we grow old

Our Minds still work the same

This an end to all our needs

In some far off heavens place

Where there is a time of rest

It beckons and we will follow

As we find our journey’s quest

I will wait for the ones

I knew and called family

Then there my friends

You will be greeted

As you are remembered

Being a great part of me

Always a part of my ways

May I say the better part

Then through that lovely haze

They will remind me

Of all the days gone by

Where words and deeds

Kept us on our journey true

It is a place filled with love

Where truth rings out each day

I will sit beneath an Oak with you

Or by a sparkling stream

Or the place you want to be

You have in your dreams

When families have done greeting

Eternity will then hold us to

There is no time in that place of love

Most refer to it as up above

Eventually you may remember me

As I will remember you

Just whisper and I’ll be there

You’ll see!

 

Today

We will always be here

I cannot leave you alone

To wander without talking

Talk to me in gentle tones

Hard words shatter on my mind

They can never come in

Gentle talk will warm me

Touch my soul it yearns to talk

Stand not in the shadows

As to stand in the light

I can see your beauty

This is where I will love you

Stay still in your mind

I will feed you if hungry

Only feast on wonders around

Touch things with a thought

Learn to love all you see

The reflection will light your way

Just talk to me as you walk on

I will listen, then, talk anew

Spirit Help

I looked down to where my feet should be

There small clouds of red dust I did see

Where am I? the thought echoed back to me

“A street, in some place they call Taree”

Why am I here I asked in soft tones?

“You are here to help heal a Spirit friend”

But that is physical and I am spirit free?

I can only heal thought and memory?

“This is all we have asked of you

This task is not that hard to do

You can watch over the spirit there

Give it rest and lots of things to share”

“That you are here is all we can do

Of times needed to see this through”

Will they know we are with them here?

The things we do are often not clear

We travel the Earth plain far and near

A sight here and a warm feeling so

A task done, support given, on we go

To return to the spirit world we know

US

Of dreams we see but cannot tell

Of quiet times we both know well

Where memories & feelings are truly stored

Bridges built o’er gaps and rivers ford

I come to you

A silent whisper deep in my ear

Brings a peace to me that allays all fear

Of days to be their ends I don’t see

There you are hidden so deep in me

My love to be

You hold me untiring in your arms

I am accepted in your upturned palms

With rainbow feelings caught in morning dew

Those three words of silence I share with you

Be with me now

There are many dreams that may come true

Then those loving thoughts of you and me

Only time to come the end we’ll see

Of those wishes and dreams I know not when

I belong to you

Is there a time just for you and me?

Will there be something for our love to be

Have we always to stay here deep inside

To love in our souls wherein we hide

My time for you

Someone

If you walked with the angels

would you walk with me ?

If you talked with the angels

would I hear?

If I knew you were an angel

would I dare?

If we both were as angels

Then we could share!

                                             Biography

                                         Ian T Howard

 

Born in the village of Hawkeridge Wiltshire in March 1942 into a family of eight, memories of these early years can be dated to, June 6th 1944, I remember the sky filled with aircraft.

My Sister was born on the 22nd of June that year and made our family up to ten.

Our family was Mother and Father four boys and four girls, so you can guess that we had a great time, though our style of life was limited to our income.

I could read at a very early age of around three, I think that this was the grounding for my imagination, and ability to write.

My writing started more during my senior school years, with the entry of one of my bits, as I call them, into the school magazine, of Matravers School of Westbury Leigh Wiltshire.

I joined the Royal Air Force at the age of 15, and started writing in an exercise book, this I still have; one of my poems in there is the Valley, made from early days of playing around the countryside, when a small hole in the ground became a canyon..

Over the years of writing and changes in life, having my own family grow up around me, and then the parting of the ways as some families do.

Also the passing, of my parents, one sister and a brother, retaining their influence on my thoughts.

Then remarrying into a loving state, that has Spiritual connections, my writing has evolved into a wide variety of works that reflect my interpretation of the things around, not only in a factual way, but sometimes with a deep philosophical outlook with a soul to each and everything.

I have through the connection I have with the Spiritualism side of my present life, recorded a great number of talks with the Spirit world as they are related to me, most times through Anne my wife who is an International Medium.

These talks with spirit are recorded from semi trance times, when there is a connection between the two worlds, mostly when the Spirit girl Sadie comes through to talk to us using the Mediums voice, there are other Spirits that come through but this will be clear, as we carry on through the tapes day by day.

I have over the years written many poem and short stories I will try to put these in chronological order just to show how my ways evolved.

I will leave you to be at peace with all things.

The Valley

Down through this wonderful valley of the never setting sun

Where time stands at the height of summer in its full run

Trees adorned in their lustrous green coats, move with me

Move to the gentle breezes, playing hide come seek all day

Here there and everywhere, in prancing leaves we play.

Across the lake, that has become a silver disc.

Made beautiful by the sun’s rays, leaping across the surface

Appearing to catch the silver of the fish, scattering it far and wide

To the river that relieves the lake to the stream that feeds

One dancing bowl of light

Drift with the river as it flows slowly through, fields and trees

Meander on to where the hills blend with the sky, lost in the distance

Place of perfect rest, unique in its sights and sounds

As time unchanged, so the valley of dreams, held forever

Oh sweet repose from life’s troubles, here to wander as the breeze

Across through and over, just sighing with the trees

To move, but wonder of all to move nothing

As the sun, always there to see, and to caress the things it sees.

 

 

 

001                                    A Beginning

 

There in infinity dwelt a silence of a void

The void with its glow, pulsed Alpha and Omega

Here is where man in his limited ways cannot be

For infinity has no place for time or things like man

The glow pulsed for an instant, was this infinity

Born of the voids of timeless distance and space

Infinity stirred pushing, pulsing, spreading outward

Once again pushing itself into the birth of being

Filling the eternal void as it exploded outward

The further it pushed into being, there was the light

Spurred on by its release into the short eternity

So once again Alpha reached out its hand for Omega

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

934                                      Utter Desolation

 

A feeling of utter space descends

Where have you come from? I ask myself

Why after all this time do you feel so?

Have you found so much space in there?

I tried to fathom the reason

Is it an age that has me gripped?

No I think not, it seems deeper than that

Search damn it, seek out a reason.

I turned to my senses and gazed

I gazed into more space out there

What the hell is going on I screamed

Where am I? I called talking to me.

You have become blind, not visually, mentally,

Wait I thought this could just end me.

Here and now there is nothing left to see

Oh come on, there is more to me than this.

Blast, so now I have to think of something

I know, I will find a starting point to me.

A shell that has thoughts that is here.

Who is thinking those thoughts in there?

Let me up I will seek me, out there

What was that, a shadow has formed

Glass, I need a reflection or something

Bloody hell is that me in memories mirror?

So where do we go from here? I asked.

Who are you talking to now stupid?

Have you found yourself out there yet?

Maybe, just maybe just stop laughing

Who are you? I didn’t hear you come in?

Have you been here long, can I leave now?

No! Rang out with jagged edges hurting me

We are here to clean your place up a bit.

I just ran to the corner and sat down.

Feeling hot river lines on my face.

I hid my head inside of my hands

One day, I screamed, One Day.

 

Eagles Eyes

I looked to the ground

There laid out below

Where all the world

Clear to me did show

Strange feelings

Touched my wings

A feeling of elation

There lightness begin

I moved my wings

So that I could see

Their golden glow

Silently lifting me

Air became a part of me

Force blended you see.

Becoming a golden blur

Harmonizing with air

I flow with the air

Thermals without care

Seeking food out

From everywhere

 

 

 

 

Below a creature so

Would sustain my flow

On breezes I play

This is always my way

I now show you

That a vision here

To take a rabbit clear

I have to my dear

I am the beauty

Of this domain

To live with you

I must stoop again

There is no suffering

I am the master

Of change to them

Clean transfer

Here and there

Theirs and mine

Joined as always

A space in time

 

 

851

Feelings

Tears descend

Only I know why

No you cannot come in

It is too crowded in here

You can never know

Of the thinking

Here I am me alone

Leave my thoughts to me

I will not look into your eyes

They will only twist my path

I now know true ways

I avert my eyes

My senses are now true

True to my love of love

I hear the laughter

Let the children sing

There they are free

Unconditional love

It is mine to watch and hold

How could I forget

I am now free of all things

They are as soft as wings

Angel wings hummingbird sings

The butterfly splashes its colours

These are the true feelings

These are the true colours

I will still remember you

As I follow my dreams

Walk With Me

I am tired, but will walk a while

I think that I will walk a mile

The leafy lane with hedges new

Birds singing there high in the blue

Of gravel sounds ringing gruff

It’s fun to kick and more to scuff

The style with its twisted wood

Beckons me as it only could

I raise my feelings jumping high

The meadow has caught my eye

The flowers all say hello to me

The daisies laugh the buttercups sigh

The grass a blanket where I could lie

I now am floating as a Honey bee

The meadow dips, the stream I see

It holds the water there for me

As it wanders through village and farms

For me though it just drifts along

Holding, Oh! Soft summer’s song

There I wander for time stands still

I’ll sit here a while to heal my ills

Breeze caressing my thoughts today

Warm and soft I hope they stay

I need you there to make me well

In my mind where I dwell

I am now refreshed somehow

I have returned to the now

My thoughts did wander so

 

 

744

 

Talk as shadows fall

We always talk as the shadows fall

There in our light, we just recall

The days of love, when we did feel

Before you were hurt and became so ill

Then you left my side and slipped away

I hear you there with some old friends

Playing games that seem to be without end

You are never tired now, as you use to be

I think that there is a better place you see

Where you are, no pain, you are so free

This is the place where we all must go

As soon as we end this journey below

To feel your thoughts at each closing day

To suggest to me in my mind’s eye

That we will meet in the by and by

In my soul where I hold you evermore

Life here is not quite the same as before

I have had to start all over again

These things you say, are for me to do

Now talk to me just as you use to

Tell me, of things as I am not sure

Should I be with another like you before.

Can I live my life and see things through

With someone that seems the same as you

It hurts to feel when I’m not so sure

This seems to have opened another door

Where life goes on as it did before

I hear you say to me now each day

Go live your life in the usual way

I am with you and there I will stay

                                               A full Void

There is a hush, I think of you

There far out in space, I find you.

Why do you question my ways?

I have never told you wrong,

I tell you of words anew.

All my words sit with you

In that great void out there

They are part of all knowledge.

Do you let me think?

This you ask of me

Yes I talk to make you think.

You belong to this, I tell you

Where do I belong?

I hear you say

You belong to the whole

What is the whole?

The whole is eternal

The energy of eternity

Unconditional love

This is the whole

Why do I feel unsure?

To learn is why,

That you learn is paramount

Learn only the good things

Teach as you learn.

These things let you grow

What do I grow?

It is your Spirit that grows.

You came from eternity

As a child you crawled

As an adult you called

That I may hear you

To talk to each of us

Is to talk to the whole

I am you as you are I

We will meet there

Where shall we meet?

We have never been apart

That you should ask this of me.

Says that you are not ready

 

 

Holding

Of spiders webs and delicate things

Of powder of the butterflies wings

Of pebbles dropped into ponds

Of humming birds and loving words

Of peoples silent dreams

To hold the web of life so free

To let the powder touch your mind

To let wave on wave just travel on

To hear humming birds in song

To dream of other things

Be holding on to the web of life

Be delicate as the powder sounds

Be a slowly moving wave in time

Be lulled by the humming birds sound

Be then within your dreams

 

 

 

 

My soul cries

It cries for all the things I have to leave

It cries that others think that I should be

It cries for all the times I miss out

It just cries my love for all things

The morning comes to see that its day

It sees me cry at the things gone away

The birds sing I listen to them now

Of things that should be mine somehow

A day passes into evening time for me

It shows to me where i really want to be

It cries as it says the close of another day

That all the days things are gone away

Think of the things that maybe mine to be

Please hold me in your mind oh so gently

This is where you are for all the times

I cry, you cry, its right for our minds

Times pass into the ages of the years

Things change leaves fall more tears

To awake when things are now fine

It is deemed to be, you hold my mind

When later you look and there to see

What it was that we really wanted us to be

You will cry more tears for loving you so

To fill places till we had to let you go

In love and truth there you are to be

There in your soul you still have me

I wont fade as the two suns still shine

You are there and will always be mine

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“LOVE OF A STRANGER”

I loved the stranger the day he rode in.

Smooth leather seemed to cling to him.

A white handled colt slung low to his right.

No fear in his eyes, he was ready to fight.

Keep away from my right side my darling.

It’s the side that I carry my gun.

Death reaches out on that side my darling.

From this stranger who’s been on the run.

The sun threw our shadows short, then long.

He walked with me in the evening song.

There the moon brought us together.

I hoped our fire would last forever.

Don’t lay on my right side my darling.

It’s the side that I carry my gun.

Death reaches out on that side my darling.

From this stranger who’s been on the run.

The whole night through we spent at play.

In the peaceful place of his arms I lay.

That peace I felt as I was slowly falling.

I heard his voice to me gently calling.

Don’t sleep on my right side my darling.

It’s the side that I carry my gun.

Death reaches out on that side my darling.

From this stranger who’s been on the run.

The morning came with a new day true.

Clear air, birds singing, with a sky of blue.

We rode out of town to a place I knew.

Till long past noon as the darkness grew.

Don’t sit on my right side my darling.

It’s the side that I carry my gun.

Death reaches out on that side my darling.

From this stranger who’s been on the run.

As sundown came, they just couldn’t wait.

Men crazed with drink, so full of hate.

He took three of them before falling.

Reaching out, as though, he was calling.

Run away from my right side my darling.

It’s the side that I carry my gun.

Death reaches out on that side my darling.

From this stranger who’s been on the run.

I held him close as close could be.

As he, lay quietly on the ground.

His voice came so sweetly to me.

He took that last long look around.

You belong on my right side my darling.

It’s where I use to carry my gun.

My feelings for you will last forever.

I’m no longer a man on the run.

Ian.T

 

 

Of Later Days

There are days then there are days

Ones where we can just laze

In sunny places that we make

Others would make the world quake

This maybe is one of those

The future now has been foretold

In the recesses of my mind

The part of me here has become unkind

Therefore I now know what I must do

There are Angels my road to show

Who need to know that on my way?

They would like to see each day

Where I live and where I play

I thank them for the love they show

I carry it with me where ever I go

I will relate to them for them to know

Where I am so that I can show

That I love them, with my entire mind

The ones I cannot leave behind

For ones here who hold not so dear

All the thoughts that are held therein

You will always see that it was a sin

To treat such feelings without thinking

My little ones I love so and pray

That I can only hope that one day

Our paths will meet then we will say

I have loved more in every way

Those other creatures can understand

Our love is strong as the mighty oak

Then as gentle as a summer breeze

We live, we are, there are none to please

For deep inside our love will be

Held in souls love, for eternity

Yours and mine

The ideal ways of us would be

If it were possible to live in me

The dreams of early days are very plain

That we must as we are, remain

Pure as the driven snow

Held deep inside each other’s souls

Where one day I may awake and find

That all the things left in my mind

Of value, and when things to me are kind

There you will be standing with me

This is a dream that I hold so dear

It will keep away all the fear

Of not being there at hand

To guide your ways, as suns sometimes do

As stars held aloft navigators did use

If you look out during all the closings

Of your days, you will see me shine

I will shine for you in all the ways

That are in need for your special days

As those stars do shine, and we are one

In this way of love whatever may come?

Remember that I will be as a sun

The words that I have said to you

Hear them in all the things you do

As we go along the path of our ways

Separate or together at the close of days

Of the days we love, held within us to know

That it is us, as on we go

For ever,

Where ever you may be.

I paused to think of times gone by

Where people would not look into my eyes

For fear that there they would see

A reality of things there to be

I see love that has gone forever more

I see scars that are hidden that’s for sure

I see them as they really are

Then I see things better from afar

I feel a soul that wanders by

I will capture it as it would fly

Be with me now that you will see

From here into the feelings of reality

Of the mind seeking love from sources known

It’s with my love that I will roam

To be as one under one sun

As time to us goes slowly by

Love born of bleeding when battles won

Their hearts are free to everyone

Let’s look at those as we go by

They will not last for you or I

Let’s now look to me inside

Where nothing I fear ever tries

To hide from the one that feels

It’s me and mine its real

A thousand shimmering curtains fall

They hold your mind in ever awe

That you may see a dream

Of things you wish you’d ever seen

There is no way out as you will find

I have you trapped in my tender mind

Where things are what you need to be

Fulfilled in the hope that’s eternity

Feel my mind it’s so free

Of other feelings for you and me

To be tender in our ways

This feeling will last for many days

I touch your soul so gentle

Join in with this be sentimental

I feel your ways giving in to me

I will lift you so high you will see

There you are in love with me

Let me take you far away

Where feelings run for evermore

The joining of the soul to be sure

Let the curtain fall once again

I touch you, you live with flair

As the running of the deer

As it graces mountain air

To be there deep inside

I will cry within my soul

In happiness for we are told

It’s ours to give and take

There you hold on to me

We have no choice you see

It’s so good that you and me

Just feel the hours away

I will not need to wake this way

I know that here inside you will stay

For ours is to be and have

In our minds we will join

There is a thing that you have missed

I know of it and we must kiss

The hours away each and every day

If we are to stay this way

It will save you from the places

You may want to go with us as one

I take you there, as you are the sun

That warms my soul in peace that is

Deep in this the place that is mine

In deepest love to find us there

Holding, holding all things near

It’s the touching of the souls

Here you will feel the peace I say

It flows on and on, day, on day

As we lose our selves inside

No way will I now hide

From you that has brought the sun

As you have given to everyone

I give to thee in all feelings

The touch of you in your soul

The blinding flashes that are only seen

Are feelings that have been?

Hidden deep inside your mind

Now give them to me it’s the souls we see

Bare all there is no pain just light

That will refrain from all that’s gone

This is where you belong

Inside my soul with feelings new

Now take oh take me as you do

In touching of our minds

I give to you freely all of the time

For you to rest your soul

Now come to me in innocents

As on our way we go

With feelings left from other times

That we no longer show

Just hold me in your mind

Leave everyone behind, be lost in me

Take my ways join these new days

Float now on our cloud we need

You now give to me things left in secret

The feelings never seen

Its holding I am and you are a queen

That will carry feelings for my mind

There are worlds we now will leave behind

As we find our souls

That joined here as we talked in mind

To be as one no-one can find

There is no end to us you see

There is only you and I

To live this now is for me fine

In this space in time

One day there will be I foretell

After several tears that make eyes swell

A peace for you to forever be

Close in my mind for us to see

One soul

 

 

 

 

The River Waters

The soul is still and deep with waters green

It hides me from the things I’ve been

To wander there at its side

To see the stories that it hides

Each day to be

Shallow waters are like the tongue

Talks so much to everyone

It tells of stories that were fun

It bubbles then catches the sun

It runs to fast

Waters wide with depth anew

Gives me the picture that of you

Where there for hope it flows with pride

Its banks are strong on either side

Is seen as you

Let waters run or drift slowly through

To the future they flow with you

To carry things that is needed now

To bring to me things that somehow

Belong to me

The rivers of my mind are strong

They carry me as I go along

In safety from the maddening folk

That would try to see my ways

From other days

I seek the shelter of the sea

Its arms are held so wide for me

I will twist and turn then find my way

Held in its arms where I will stay

In love to be

Now as the sea I beat the shore

As wave on wave I need some more

The feelings that I use to hide

Is as the sea now a new tide?

To care for me

Each wave I bring you fresh and new

Feelings that are born so true

But different as the days go by

It’s as life that’s passing by

See me there

As the tide now races out

It takes me with no need to shout

We can now whisper all the names

Of mine and theirs to be

Remain a part of me

I love the way of your being

I watch the waves with feeling

They keep my mind to rest in them

I belong now to everyone

In life to be

Out in the Oceans of the world

I go the way with spirits unfurled

With gentleness that carries the seed

Of life to all the ones that really need

Await new seed

The sunshine does draw me

It makes the rain that sets me free

Carried aloft as a gentle rain

To be returned to the river once again

A new life to be

She’s Alive

She’s alive he shouted to the trees,

As he walked within their arms

They whispered gentle, she’s alive,

As the breeze entwined their charms

She’s alive the grass would answer,

As it lay there on the ground

It lay as a blanket spread,

Just like her velvet gown

She’s alive he kept on crying,

From within his noisy realm

As if to catch a moment gone,

Where he knew she would be found

That as the world kept turning,

To him she would belong

She’s alive he cried for hours

To tell to everyone his song

A divinity held within his mind,

Like a goddess of the sun

She’s alive the cry would echo,

Through his mind as only he could see

That what he had, was always

Held within his memory

She’s alive echoed through the void,

That’s where he preferred to stay

As touched by nothing was the thing,

So nothing crossed his way

She’s alive to escape reality

That’s where he went to play

A vision to pass all loveliness,

Locked in his mind she’d stay

She’s alive was his way of looking

At today that he may live

Or to live until he reached that day,

When she would just arrive

Then to shout he would only whisper

There she really is alive

To my friends

If you see a star out there

One that seems to wink at you

It will be me as happy as can be

Cause I love you all so

This life now will take a turn

For the peace we all yearn

As you all have been with me

At each twist and turn

Of this life’s journey of mine

How can I thank you all

So that you will know

How much you mean to me

There is no way, so from today

I will be just me for all those

That sees me as I am

To those who walked with me

Who wanted to hold, my hand

I give you all the love I can

Be it held deep within you

I carry it now, it saw me through

Then happiness of young boys

Who have the best toys?

Of the maidens that know

That they are loved so

To you that held me

In your loving arms

Through darkened days

With your lovely ways

There you’re calm outside

Calmed the turmoil

Deep, so deep inside

This all, is now shared

As we belong to all

There evermore will be

Where my for ever friends

Are held within me

To my loves

Who number few on earth.

What do you think I would do?

Without you to hold me so well

There are things locked in minds

That I can never tell or leave behind

Of things felt with you at my side

This journey will have been so dull

If we had not been as we are

For to love you there or here

From afar is more than to be

I will always love your ways

The tales we tale of now things

Then again of bygone days

I love you all, as autumn comes

To this land which I now find

Walking with me there my loves I see

By the shores of everyone’s destiny

Know that I love them and they me

To those forever in my mind

You will never be left behind

Take me where so ever you may go

As truth is pure, I love you all so

To those that realize, that my love

For them shines within my eyes

They will cry tears for days gone by

When you all walked with me

I would hold you so high

There your tears, I would kiss and dry

In lands afar where we would fly, for fun

To live some lives we have just begun

To love you, so that people know

Who you really are

Be loved I say by this humble one

Who would walk with you

In the early morning sun

To hold you as you held me

Our love to last eternally

Be truth, to those you love around

That I am here, I make no sound

To disturb the air that holds you there

I am inside of all your ways

To be there for all the days

Just incase you need me so

My love for you will always be

Touching the ways you need of me

It can be there for all to see

It’s just a case, of if it will be, told so

One day as the winter takes its toll

Of people that we all use to know

Let me be there for your memories

There held still in your mind

As fresh as the a day you did find

That it was me there waiting for you

To hold and share all life’s things

In a life that’s pure and true

Where all the things you are, and do

Always remember me, and that

I will always love you

Your,

Ian.T

 

 

 

Another write of:-

To my loves

Who numbered few.

What on earth do you think I would do?

Without you to hold me so well

There are things locked in minds, that I can never tell

Of things felt with you all there by my side

This journey would be so dull

If we had not been as we were

For to love you there or here from afar, is more than to be

I loved your ways,

The tales we told of now things, and of bygone days

I loved you all as the autumn came to this land

Walking with me there are loves that I saw

By the shores of destiny

That I loved them and they me

To those loves that are, I am forever in their minds,

You will never be left behind

Take me where so ever you may go,

As truth is pure, I loved you all so

To those that realized, that my love for them

Was in my eyes

That cried tears for me for the days gone by

When they walked with me

When I held them high, there their tears I would kiss and dry

To love you so that people knew who we really were

To have been loved I say by this humble one

Who did walk with you in morning suns?

To hold you as you held me our love to last eternally

Be truth to those you love around

That I am here, I make no sound,

To disturb the air that holds you there

I am inside of all of your ways;

There to be for all the days, you need me

My love for you touches all the ways you need of me

It can be there for all to see,

It’s just a case of if it will be, told so

One day as winter takes its toll

Of people that we all use to know

Let me be there for your memories still

In the sanctuary of your mind

As fresh as the a day you did find me there

Waiting for you to hold and share

A life that’s pure and true in all the things you are and do

Always remember, that I will always love

You

Was thinking of you

There is a silence I feel inside my soul

What you may ask should make it go

A picture across the miles

Would make me think then many smiles

To fill this silence here inside

Where tears do form and true feelings hide

It’s you alone can complete this task

As you are to me just all I ask

Then the silence looms again

It is not so my little friend

Those feelings meet on waves so high

Of visions that you and I

Will melt a thousand suns

Time of all things curse to me

The only true time is eternity

This all things shrink from and die

It’s there that two will become just one

No time difference between the suns

Who can be held in each other’s arms?

To tangle there to show the charms

That attracted them in their very souls

It’s hard to see that living now

With spaces in time that somehow

Drift our bodies far apart

It’s for the best that we both see

That we may have to meet in eternity

There laying claim to that we understand

In feelings of love, or just holding hands

For all things then they will see

A special place for just you and me

To stay as one for ever time

To mingle thoughts to be one mind

It’s done for you and me

There in the heavens that we share

Not two are seen just anywhere

But one Sun

 

 

0003

 

Me

I am you see in my entirety

A person whose mind is so free

But things that are said affect my head

To bring me some misery

Look inside to where I really hide

There you will see me completely free

In love with Oh! So many things

Of people and places my soul sings

What of sadness and of the tears

I hear you say that throughout the years

Has plagued my outward ways

It’s learning I say for later peaceful days

To spend in peace with you

Whoever takes the time to look through

There within to find this soul of mine

Then love me so as on I go

Yenti

 

 

 

 

Closeness

I touched your heartbeat in my mind

It raced away as did the time

The moments spent with you

Where delicate skins perfume

Did linger till well past noon

As I held you close to me

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The before times

There are many things that I have to tell

Of times in the past that were hell

Now they were from long time ago

Of lives gone by we know

The stories they tell are for everyone

These things are reflected in your ways

A feeling of loss from before your days

Of a people who walked across many lands

They shed many tears.

For the ones, that they lost on their way

They had no time for hanging on

They went on with things so we would belong

They sang they danced along their path

It was part of them

To where you find yourself at last

Hidden memories you still hold

From the people that lived long time ago

It’s not for us to question why

They did it for me

It’s my job to learn to live for them

Least they die in Eternity

As big as the Sky

If you sit alone when the evenings nigh

Your computer is off or where am I

We can at least read some old mail

A poem, or so, which stories tell.

From our friends, and more important you

A picture scanned, then sent on its way

Will tell a tale more than words can say

Of people in separate places

Who wished for things.

From the many people without faces

The feelings that have been so true

Can now be directed at you

Who has a beautiful face and body to.

We still wish for things

Not for what we are but what we do

I can now think of the many things

That is running through this mind

For you to use when comes the time

To fly afar from home

Please use my thoughts don’t be alone

Sweet friend you will always be

A part of joined minds for eternity

I hope that in the days to come

You will keep for me

A special place to walk in the sun

As day on day just passes us by

Its tears we shed when each are nigh

Not that we have things to rue our ways

It’s fun to be someone, with someone.

We shed a tear for all the lost days

In later days before memories fade

I think you’ll find gifts put in your way

From people that you should have known

But hid from all the time

There you will find peace of mind

Now this journey is long oh so long

When you are dragged by things gone

Tarry not along the desperate ways

Just find the sun

Then think of the better days

I wish

That all the things, which are forever good

Would come to you, as I know they should

Because you are an Angel left on this earth

That other people now see, not just me

Take to you all these feelings of mine

Leave all those past tears far behind

They are not for Angels to make you blue

There are people that really love you

I will do all the crying so that you will see

There are some that feel and want to be

Close to that soul of yours there inside

Where there is a beauty you cannot hide

Take care with you, as your journey runs

There are new times coming of life’s funs

Of feeling free to walk this sacred soil

This is there for you, where you must toil

Take with you all the best parts of me

My hopes, love, my sanity, are thoughts of you.

Then this journey for you in love you will see

Will be beautiful for you, as an Angel, just be

“Listen to your soul”

There is a hush as the sea gently flows back and forth

Onto the Golden sands we know

There caught in the light of true feelings are two people

Holding on to each other’s souls

Their smiles are as the Angels in the knowledge

Of their joined being, with a trust so true

Their laughter is as the babbling mountain streams,

As they catch the sun scattering on morning dew

Where words are no longer used,

As looks portray a love of the ages, they have captured anew

Where the trust of two souls lives on,

In the whirlpools of their ageless time,

Held in laughter yours and mine

I hold your soul is the sound echoing across the waters

I hold your soul with my love that’s true it never alters

I give to you my all, is the reply.

That mimics the echo of two souls

Held aloft, for all to see.

You are a special creature that’s held in me

This chrysalis state waiting for the sun to warm its ways

You will emerge as a beautiful butterfly

Of feelings soon to be free and new,

With love to give forever days

Hold on to these places and things

That is sweet to your life’s blood,

And the blood of your life as heaven above

Hold them close for they, can only see

The veils of time, shrouded for you and me.

As I hold your soul so close to mine

Give only to those that earn your love

Trust the feelings of those above.

The trust of bygone days tempered for you

To give to me the hope that in your future times

There will be us building for your days of life and love

Build on sweetest thought, of life that you are

Where the heavens have loaned us one of theirs, from afar

Build within the confines of your mind,

So that you are a tower of strength for yours and mine

That need you so, then you would not let go

But at the same time we would be free

A story

I did write a story just for you

The words went wrong, quite untrue

In loving ways, then other things

To be there when our bells ring

The silence grew as I tried to speak

Then words fell out in little squeaks

Of the days of things, where fun was had

Hours spent, when we were both sad

Then days of holding you there, in fun

Then woe days with me, we were as one

What can I say, that in love portrays

The things that run here in my ways

These story tales, which don’t go well

For us together, we should dwell

For it’s so hard to think, and speak

When confusion reigns in the lives we seek

I’ll start a story, which is oh so true

Of what really was and what we should do

If yesterday would get out of the way

It changes things we mean today

A truth cannot live or stay the same

A story changed, I’ll start again

To a muse

If I talk to you and you did not hear

Should I then shout a bit, to make it clear?

Would you not speak to me, in happy times?

Or waste hours of quiet, and pay me no mind

To the troubles brought up to your door

Lets’ just ignore them now, and for ever more

As any trouble that we have, is yesterdays past

There is a time for us and we will make it last

Where life does start, and finds us somehow

Alone in this world, we know so well

Not ready to begin again, lest woe should come

To dwell in yesterday is no fun

Forward to go, if future tales are told

We should join our lives, before we are old

To look ahead into the coming years

What would you see through all the tears?

Of our yesterdays that we know so well

It’s where we live, it’s where we dwell

Let’s look at now, and what is there seen

A space for us that is just between

Yesterday’s tears and tomorrows fears

Will find us, as a cold wind that sears

So let us stay for a while, in this quiet time

To hold, to love, for you to be mine

Indignant

Why is that so, do you need to know?

What troubles there are in my soul?

Of people that aren’t, but should be here

Of feelings that aren’t really mine to bear

Day on day and weeks go by my mind

I went away and left you so far behind

But the distance had grown, before I came away

It was to show you, that there’s no more today

I cried a while before the leaving days

I cried some more, along these hard ways

The anger grew, so as the distance spread

This taught me strength, here inside my head

To endure through the separate ways of life

To help you if there should be some strife

I worry that others may misuse you so

As I find have to find a new way to go

It will not be fun for day on day

I am so cross that this did come my way

People who have differing points of view

Told by me, or just told, thereby you

Should truth have been always told?

There in time to come, as we grow old

Instead of pain for what was wrongly said

A long life shared, could have been instead

Why Does It Hurt

My soul is hurt time and time again

When I hear of another soul suffering

How can this be fair I ask in my mind,?

That my life is good, even in my bad times?

Others have surpassed, all the things that hurt me!

Where then I ask would the fairness be

Why do they have to suffer so?

A gentle voice did whisper in my mind

When they left the spirit world behind

It was the things that they had to learn,”

Why so harsh”? I did reply to the voice inside.

“Their paths crossed others there they collide”.

They had to learn of things from another’s view

Or to teach others, that had lessons too!

Why do we have to learn so, on this plain?

The answer came quietly to me again.

“We test the spirit only in this earth’s domain

As a truly physical form it’s not the same

You have set tasks, the day you are born

You enter the earth plain as you did before”

Why then are these things so hard for me?

That captures my mind and my liberty?

“The choice was yours and will always be

That you may become pure, in our eternity”

Is this then the fate of earth’s human beings?

“Yes”! the voice said, “To become spirit feelings”

What are your values, in the place you are?

I have been told it’s just a thought not far

“We strive to be pure, of mind and thought

Where love is the paramount thing taught

To try and tell you, as to what we become

Or how we live in a place that to some

Is impossible to let your present mind see

Just believe that we live in eternity”!

A beautiful light shone there within me

The reason then for us, all on earth to be.

To build a spirit, so pure with love, the reality.

Of life here and all the things that are wrong?

I walk with you on your journey, hold my arm

I will always protect your spirit from harm

With that it was the end of think talk

Just believe in yourself and with me walk

I speak in gentle tones

It’s with humility

I talk with you

It’s with feelings strong

I walk with you

As we have to say

Of people along the way

Come be with me

We are both so free

That today is

The first day of before

Of all the things

That we did endure

To waken and see

The things you can be

Even if it is shown

In poverty this poverty

Then just to be

Is good enough for me

If it means that I will be

Then I am

To Burns

The little beasty that you did make

Would even make an elephant quake

Then write of other things in rhyme

It’s fun to leave lots of things behind

Then tell, tales of fun things that be

Especially rhymes of you and me

Whose worlds of rhymes

That verses do separate?

As I am now,

Which is much too late?

To join your clan up in the north

For whom is it really worth, or be,

That means not much to me.

 

 

 

 

Reflection

The sprites fled the goblins stayed

Was this the winter of my days?

Or just the thought that had gone astray

To haunt me now in these later ways

Did I do all things that were true?

Could I have hurt one such as you?

I feel that in my journey through

That maybe something better I could do

There I hope that in all my days

That all the bad things in my ways

Would not be shown to other beings

But kept deep inside with other feelings

Then in the winter of the years to see

In reflection of the things done to thee

The persons that have met with me

That as this winter of my days came so

The sprites did stay.

The goblins did go.

Statements

Statement I thought it mulled in my mind

A word in stone when you leave all behind

A word spoken as if in a vow

That somehow escapes my mind just now

A letter of love sent in one day

To send feelings as you did sway

A word in anger that rang so true

Of something bad being done to you

A written verse that’s gone on its way

To editors and printers for ever to stay

A cry of joy on lips that’s heard

That makes people smile and frightens birds

A wish so silent there inside your view

That would be so lovely if it came true

So if you do make one of these

If loud or soft, or just to please

Make sure that at the very start

That the feelings of these come from

The Heart

My Ragged Vest

Dear friend take to you each day

These words that I have sent your way

To keep warm the feelings that we know

Of days of laughter not so long ago

If I should ever there in your mind

Leave you with your feelings far behind

Just show me the new ways to go

That I will always treat you so

That in this our allotted time

Will keep each other so fresh in mind

That warmth and love will always be

Retained in our hearts where none can see

These verses that I send to you

Will with our autumn just see us through?

For sunny days held deep within our minds

The warmth of you I’ll not leave behind

 

 

Just Help Me

In walking with me in the sun

Can I not teach you to have some fun?

Throw cares at hope then watch me smile

Push pain away with dreams for a while

Despair will follow if we learn to care

Loneliness will go if we just share

Let distance shrink by meeting somewhere

Teach me that I should know your ways

That I can help you on those bad days

Show me where there is a hurt

That I may heal with love

With thoughts that we both can feel

Down Time

It’s strange that days do seem so few

There are gaps of things I did with you

Why tell me why, what did I do

To chase even memories so far away

A feeling of futility does feed my days

Since the things of life are barred this way

Of being as I was to us forever stayed

In ways of being one yet we still did stray

There was no choice or so it seemed

Those days of looking for, or something gleaned

From a life that we could think that’s new

This was the only excuse for leaving you

As time passes so and new memories do grow

I will think of you and me just so

That will always be remembered the same

There never to be that together again

It’s with sadness that does destroy the dream

Of new open days where no children seen

Where we could walk on with lots of miles

Hand in hand with many smiles

That having fulfilled a task well done

It was now our time to walk in the sun

But as two suns held in heavens velvet arms

We had to separate or come to harm

Travel on as you wish to be

In your freedom and love of your liberty

That was always held for you and me

Here in each other’s arms

Enjoy

Happy thoughts and Happy Days

Of flower filled fields and summer haze

It leaves me smiling as if I’m dumb

To walk or run there in the sun

The autumn day, Twix the sun and snow

We will kick up the leaves as on we go

A freedom that we have now just found

Dried leaves and thoughts of rainbow sounds

Of days for us in our years

Gone are the teardrops and the fears

As winter even as it will soon come

An imaginary snowman built for someone

Take on this journey you with me

Or as I say maybe both separately

With contacts that will shake your tum

For on we now go, in love and fun

A New Path

You must now that trouble is done

Come walk with me to find the sun

We can, as we know us so well

Talk and sort then do things to tell

Others that have stood in our ways

That we have decided to enjoy our days

All the burdens and obstacles put in our path

Just look behind see them there then laugh

Ahead are paths that only we can choose

We can walk together then we cant loose

That we can now look so far around

A path for one or two will be found

So start today lets be on our way

Together though we may not stay

The journey through

 

Sarum’s Child

In this city where I lay

There sits a child of stone and clay

It sits there in its stony world

Spoilt by its servants as they yield

To its absolute and unquestionable need

Brought on by their everlasting greed

They will deny that they serve the stone

But the people around who have wasted days

Is a testament to their ungodly way’s

Although if asked they will sing his praise

To the one true God, of their bye gone days

All the people gone of the old days true

Trodden to dust as the lookers troop through

This stone child who supplies all your needs

Who crushed a city and most of its seeds

Looks down on you without a touch of grace

The pyramids might as well take its place

There with the guards looked on fertile land

Who now looks at a landscape of sculptured sand.

In time to be where nothing is planed

To Be True To Us

I have been commissioned by my soul

To at least let you for all time to know

That in all truth and love I have to let you go

It said to me could you not see

That what you made is now

With love and dreams then wishes true

We built a beautiful woman just for you

To watch as a guardian of Angels three

A perfect place, a position to be

The truth I told to you long days ago

That to drift away when I had made you so

This was prime directive one

There in the sky were two suns

That touched their souls on passing by

The touch that caused even the Angels to cry

 

It was told that in this fleeting time

Each sun held the other, so deep in mind

They stood there still, as was their destiny

They swapped their love and stored the energy

For all times held just you and me

Now that their journey has again begun

Is held of each, in the soul of each one

The distance now as they have to fly

Grows greater in their own velvet sky

The changes made of their touching days

Eternally held as they wend their ways

To meet one day, as all matter must come

There in eternity to shine as one sun

Me Silly

This morning before the sun reached out

Climbing for its place in the heavens day,

I walked outside to greet it as is my way

On my beautiful lawn were a lot of bumps,

Was I cross, I could have spit snakes,

Turned to find a roller or rake

But before this task was through

That voice came and told me of you

“Look at what your friends have done”

In the growing light I saw that the lumps

In the shape of footprints, not ugly bumps

As if someone had been walking there

In my garden it didn’t seem fair

Tears rolled down my cheeks with ease

As I knew just what they were

My friends all over in this world

Like you, had to be silly, had to care

Now my lawn is more beautiful

Than any I have ever seen.

Feet prints there in profusion green

From billiard table top, to this shrine

Thank you all, you friends of mine

A dragon

I knew instantly what I could see

There flashing in the sunlight

Caressing the air with electricity

A Dragon flying there towards me

There came a gentle sighing sound

“Hello to you that’s Earth bound”

The mighty beast did say to me

His Spirit Friend spoke soft and low

“What is it that you wish to know?”

We spoke of things I needed so

A rainbow of colour, our talk flowed

Thought took over, as was their way

In an instant all question were told

Stories of love and people bold

Of fear that grew throughout the years

At this, he shed some sparkling tears

We had touched on memories bare

That he would rather have left there

His world had shrank and gone away

He resides in the world of dreams today

It mattered not he sent out to me

As they now live in Spirits Infinity

I came here today just to see

One of you who still did believe

The mighty creature stood so tall

The light danced I stood in awe

Then realised what Dragons were

A thought a dream nothing more

But in that dream of years gone by

We made him great and let him fly

Added fire to purify our ways

A beautiful creature, dream filled days

Now we have made him, he must be

In Spirit time for all now to see

A creature so great we have made

At the rainbows end there he stays

My Brother

A last fight for you here before you journeyed through

Our Mother Father and Brother and Sister were awaiting you

Fear not the journey as you were good

They in the realms of your new world have understood

To now ask of your ways here on this plain

More good you did for your Spirit’s gain

We will meet again as Spirits anew

When I also journey on to be with you

To be left behind to carry on with things

Is part of life here and a sadness brings

Where you are now is journeys end

My love and thoughts to you I send

The world you are in and now aware

Is a beautiful place without a care

One day there we will meet again

Roses

the love of a rose

my stigma touching your scent

awaits my inhale

Raticus and Me

I am here you cry

But only the rat hears

This matters not

For over the years

A bond has grown

This bond shows love

This furry creature gives

Is as the world should be

Unconditional in its ways

Showing pure love to me

Why has this become so

Where the world went away

Cruel people used my space

I could not fight them

Their behaviour a disgrace

What of me then here I am

Time they say the healer

No not just another man

People that here do dwell

The meek shall ring the bell

The mirror that hangs

Reflection you there see

Has been nothing positive

Not quite your reality

Tell it that you love it so

Each day things better grow

Where the love will spread

Out there so far and wide

Raticus and you need not hide

As the world will be love again

The first step is so hard to do

Love of things will see you through

I see a banner flowing in the air

Raticus and Rosina came to share

All the love that we have out here

Three in One

For Rosina that loves her rat

A Feet of Love

This morning before the sun reached out

Climbing for its place in the heavens day,

I walked outside to greet it as is my way

On my beautiful lawn were a lot of bumps,

Was I cross, I could have spit snakes,

Turned to find a roller or rake

But before this task was through

That voice came and told me of you

“Look at what your friends have done”

In the growing light I saw that the lumps

In the shape of footprints, not ugly bumps

As if someone had been walking there

In my garden it didn’t seem fair

Tears rolled down my cheeks with ease

As I knew just what they were

My friends all over in this world

Like you, had to be silly, had to care

Now my lawn is more beautiful

Than any I have ever seen.

Feet prints there in profusion green

From billiard table top, to this shrine

Thank you all, you friends of mine

More Feet

I walk the land, it talks to me

No I am not strange, or silly

First I tried my lawn out there

Friends came from everywhere

The lumps and bumps there to see

My lawn stretches out to eternity

It hit my ways as now each day

I stroll in thoughts on green ways

Standing still as one by one

My friend’s prints I stand upon

Aussie ones with dusty toes

State side bigger ones do show

A feeling that is mostly there

Is that the treader really cares

This has started something new

An instant in time I stand with you

Friends come and they do go

But their foot prints are there

As if they had walked in snow

Each telling me, they know

There are strangers prints there

I say so welcome you are

Special places now put aside

Some I see and I have cried

The soldiers marched around

Leaving footprints on the ground

They are a great treasure to me

Telling stories of love in eternity

Present friends the new prints are

Great that my lawn stretches so far

Remember to make your own

A swathe of grass to eternity thrown

Feel that Earth beneath your feet

Reach out to people in your street

Tell them of a new thing found

Of beauty in footprints on the ground

Can I Feel you there

I went outside and there the grass was strewn

Around as if at random, on the edge of a balloon

But there must be a purpose to all these things

It just can’t be that this carpet so clean

Is a blanket for me, of a beautiful green.

I think a plan has made things this way

This grass is where I will walk today

Wait I heard a voice inside, before you go

Let’s try something new, with people so

Can you all do something just for me

I will remove my shoes and socks no fear

Walk out on the grass with feet all bare

I’ll think, feel, you there, where ever you be

The ground you stand on is the same as me

Distance is not far, just down and down

Only if I could align my feet just so

With feelings of love send signals below

There far away on the other side

Another foot with no feelings to hide

I will tell my children this thing to do

If in later life they wish to stand with you

To join in this game to become maybe so real

People of the Earth will learn to stand still

Joining with all others to try to cure ill

Or just to talk of things gone by

 

A Garden

I found a garden waiting for me

Laid out as my life should be

The reality became quite blurred

In the garden a flock of birds

Showing me what things were for

I asked them to fly or show me more

All but one took to the air

To move one grain here wasn’t fair

The Toki stood just to one side

In perfection nothing to hide

It told me of stories from overseas

Could you talk of me? I asked it “please”?

Your journey here is plain to see

I am not real, I live in eternity

Please hold my mind for all that be

Call my friends to walk and visit me

Toki called my friends from everywhere

As birds a noisy flock they appeared

Footprints again from those that cared

Why do they come, to visit and share?

The Toki seemed to laugh at my plight

Stay, Oh Stay, please don’t take flight

At this he shook as if laughing so

You take your friends where ever you go

Then let them see the things I see

The peace here and other places that be

This garden will focus their minds

On the inside that always shines

At this the footprints in the sand

Beautiful shapes from other lands

I was awestruck at the ones I could see

Prints left in white sand by you and me

We whispered of all the things we knew

Then of hurts and fears filling us anew

There in the garden it was safe you see

There to tell all of the things that be

This was a glimpse the Toki said

Of eternity and the things we dread

Once you have faced all these fears

Love is there for the rest of your years

Remember that all you have to do

In the future to talk, with me or you

Is to think of us as free spirits all

Just whisper my name no need to call

Yenti

 

A Journey

I looked down to where my feet should be

There small clouds of red dust I did see

Where am I? and the thought echoed back to me

“A street in some place they call Taree”

Why am I here I asked in soft tones?

“You are here to help heal a Spirit friend”

But that is physical and I am spirit free?

I can only heal thought and memory?

“This is all we have asked of you

This task is not that hard to do

You can watch over the spirit there

Give it rest and lots of things to share”

“That you are here is all we can do

Of times needed to see this through”

Will they know we are with them here?

The things we do are often not clear

We travel the Earth plain far and near

A sight here and a warm feeling so

A task done, support given, on we go

To return to the spirit world we know

The Calendar

Cata Strophe was a master mason

Travelled the world visiting many nations

As a man of those in testament old

He wandered the earth or so it is told

Helping to carve many stone things

In Egypt where Pharaoh’s are kings

The Sphinx he did for the pyramid so

Great Obelisk’s carved with gusto

He said it was not to them he belonged

His work was the worlds so he journeyed on

Leaving them he went out across the sea

To Europe where many others would be

All Europe gained by his teaching days

Carved stones standing he showed them the ways

Sometime later in Ireland he carved a few things

There in Dublin he met the Viking Kings

They told him of a new world across the sea

It was vast, and there he could be happy

He asked them if they could take him there

This they did and he arrived without a care

Here he found nations of many gentle people

In skin pointed houses no stone so simple

He found that this was a beautiful place

Gaining the knowledge of the human race

Not the life we know, but the spirit life

Cata spent many years without strife

Travelling south with the plains people so

He crossed the dry lands into Mexico

Here he started to carve stone for their city

This time was short and that was a pity

Some of his work you will already know

It rests in the old city far below

Wandering South, he found a beautiful place

With mighty trees and much food and space

Here he settled working for many a year

He took himself a wife of the people there

They called themselves the Mayan people

They loved stone, and life was quite simple

It was easy there and his life was good

A calendar for them for the life and food

A mighty task would keep him there

He had to travel far to give his family care

By this time a Son and Daughter’s three

But he had little time with them as you and me

Cata toiled with the calendar chipping away

The people were pleased asking more each day

There they would gather to watch him toil

Carving the days and years, rumours of turmoil

Year after year he carved as if for always

His calendar was reaching into future ways

He had very little time to visit his family

Cata it’s said would no longer dally

One day the people gathered at the calendar

Cata could not be found in his usual manner

The calendar stopped at 21st of December 2012

Joining his family his work he shelved

He left their world in a boat made of reeds

With his family, some friends and lots of feed

They had been told of an Island far away,

That bears the name of another holiday

Cata it was told stopped carving the days

He took to statues, this his giant phase

Carving giant faces with hats in stone

The people there placed them row upon row

It is sad to say the great Cata didn’t stay

His family and friends grew most passed away

It is told that they had a war

Leaving just his statues, they left the shores

They are there on that distant shore

Looking out to sea, waiting for you or me

It is the Mayan calendar that worried us so

Until this story was told, we didn’t know

Cata smiles at the trouble he caused

A calendar that foretold nothing at all

It was just a task that was given to him

As a Master Mason it was sink or swim

It has been rumoured I must say

That Cata fled and to this day

We are trying to find where he did go

So that we can end his story so.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today

We will always be here

I cannot leave you alone

To wander without talking

Talk to me in gentle tones

Hard words shatter on my mind

They can never come in

Gentle talk will warm me

Touch my soul it yearns to talk

Stand not in the shadows

As to stand in the light

I can see your beauty

This is where I will love you

Stay still in your mind

I will feed you if hungry

Only feast on wonders around

Touch things with a thought

Learn to love all you see

The reflection will light your way

Just talk to me as you walk on

I will listen, then, talk anew

Another me, Just too much

I sat quietly by the rivers side

Thinking of things that did hide

There before me walked a person so

I ask where from and where you go

You have made me in your mind

Now I must leave my world behind

Joining you in your shallow way

To do your biding come what may

Here I thought what I have done

To create such a person for my fun

That it had to join me here on this bank side

Instead of flying so free where it resides

I took its ways with my thoughts again

To try to return it to it rightful domain

I knew it to me had such a journey travelled

A “Facsimile of the human psyche unravelled.”

Today I take more care in things I ask

The stranger that looked at me aghast

In some quirky way seemed to belong to me

Maybe thoughts and him belong in eternity

Mystic Creatures

I seemed to have been drawn into another world

There in the gentle light stood a beautiful young girl

She stood gazing at a beautiful formation of lava rocks

The formation seemed to belong to the ages now gone

Here I could only think not talk as here it was usual to do

“Hello young lady” I sent to her with a loving thought

“Where are we” and “Are you alone in your being”?

Her light brought a tear to my soul as she replied

“I am the spirit of this great Dragon” she sent to me

I realised what my vision was, there on the ground

The grey lava rocks were the life form of a mighty Dragon

Had I looked from a distance it would have made sense

The lava rock head and neck of such a wondrous creature

I looked further to where an arch glistened with rainbow sun

Then I knew that this where the wings with which it flew

Scattered around were shield shaped scales colours only dreamed of

I felt a great sadness at this sight and turned to the lady to ask why

It came to me with love from ages gone by, that she was the spirit

This was her Dragon and together they had flown long time ago

“Why then”? I sent to her, could this mighty creature be now so

 

It is because the Earth creatures did think of us no more

“We of the Spirit flying so free, held by the thoughts of you

Many creatures of our Spirit land are calling out to be reborn

As the Phoenix and our lovely Unicorn, held in mind for all to know

Now leave me with him as I must soon go, to find a Spirit so”

I left the young lady, re-crossing back to whence I came

I thought of the things she had said to me, not to be left in memory

There on this day I vowed, to see more clear the creatures there

I thought a mighty dragon, with a Spirit lady guiding his great form

This was the day I renewed the creatures in the spirit so

That they are eternal and need not be reborn but thought of

A great light came on and there in their world they were formed

A voice, soft as love could be, came into my thoughts to thank me

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Memory

I touched your hand

Something changed

Never be normal again

How could this be

I had guarded my ways

Yet there you broke through

Days were spent

Talking and just being

Afraid to touch just feeling

Nothing stayed the same

I showed you a crystal

You stopped kicking stones

You taught me a peace

I would never be alone

This touch was passing

Together we couldn’t be

One wind cooled you

Another warmed me

The distance did grow

As a velvet moss on a tree

One side only could see

There held to face life’s storm

As your peace held my mind

I would never know

What I had left behind

Many years passed me by

Snow fell then the sun

Nothing could warm me

As you then had done

I hold you in my soul

Others come and go

They touch me just so

Always hidden from view

That long years can do

That memory of you

Will stay always with me

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To walk there

I will take you where you should be

Enclosed and safe but also free

Where as a youth I spent many an hour

The songs of the birds, the show of flowers

Turn to the right and see the path

Brush aside the sight of those blue skies

Walk with my trees they hold no airs

Feel them close around your cares

Leaving thoughts of sickness far behind

Ahead is the glade I know locked in time

Its arms whisper here you may rest

Sit where the Oak has made you a nest

A bough that dips and curves at your feet

The grass of beauty here is so green

It holds your feet as you are a queen

Hold a thought there deep in the mind

Of quiet peace that creeps as a vine

Hear not of babble of voices there

Just let the breeze play with your hair

Let thoughts of just being you

Run riot in your mind through

Feel all the places you have loved

To brush and touch thoughts anew

Of things left for time, still to do

Rest with the reasons of the years

Tired you are of holding others dreams

Let them see you in the scheme of things

Now sit and talk to whoever you see

Ask of them “What do you want of me?”

They will pause and you will feel them so

For you to hold and not let go

Stop there for a moment or two

Look inside then see the real you

Not the tired one of others times

The inner beauty that always shines

Bathe in this time they will give to you

This rest here will see you through

When ready to look at blue skies

Hold out your hand open your eyes

The woods will fade away as the dew

They say, ”Thanks for being just you”

“Walk within our ways if needs may be

Just turn right at the nearest tree”

 

After Time

I give you thoughts

To settle on your mind

As the first snow’s of winter

Yet I warm your ways

To make you think

Of things not seen

But dreamed of

A trust that in my words

That truth will be found

In the words to answer

There are many things

That my soul is told

Then things to share

Now as we grow old

Our Minds still work the same

This an end to all our needs

In some far off heavens place

Where there is a time of rest

It beckons and we will follow

As we find our journey’s quest

I will wait for the ones

I knew and called family

Then there my friends

You will be greeted

As you are remembered

Being a great part of me

Always a part of my ways

May I say the better part

Then through that lovely haze

They will remind me

Of all the days gone by

Where words and deeds

Kept us on our journey true

It is a place filled with love

Where truth rings out each day

I will sit beneath an Oak with you

Or by a sparkling stream

Or the place you want to be

You have in your dreams

When families have done greeting

Eternity will then hold us to

There is no time in that place of love

Most refer to it as up above

Eventually you may remember me

As I will remember you

Just whisper and I’ll be there

You’ll see!

 

Today

We will always be here

I cannot leave you alone

To wander without talking

Talk to me in gentle tones

Hard words shatter on my mind

They can never come in

Gentle talk will warm me

Touch my soul it yearns to talk

Stand not in the shadows

As to stand in the light

I can see your beauty

This is where I will love you

Stay still in your mind

I will feed you if hungry

Only feast on wonders around

Touch things with a thought

Learn to love all you see

The reflection will light your way

Just talk to me as you walk on

I will listen, then, talk anew

Spirit Help

I looked down to where my feet should be

There small clouds of red dust I did see

Where am I? the thought echoed back to me

“A street, in some place they call Taree”

Why am I here I asked in soft tones?

“You are here to help heal a Spirit friend”

But that is physical and I am spirit free?

I can only heal thought and memory?

“This is all we have asked of you

This task is not that hard to do

You can watch over the spirit there

Give it rest and lots of things to share”

“That you are here is all we can do

Of times needed to see this through”

Will they know we are with them here?

The things we do are often not clear

We travel the Earth plain far and near

A sight here and a warm feeling so

A task done, support given, on we go

To return to the spirit world we know

US

Of dreams we see but cannot tell

Of quiet times we both know well

Where memories & feelings are truly stored

Bridges built o’er gaps and rivers ford

I come to you

A silent whisper deep in my ear

Brings a peace to me that allays all fear

Of days to be their ends I don’t see

There you are hidden so deep in me

My love to be

You hold me untiring in your arms

I am accepted in your upturned palms

With rainbow feelings caught in morning dew

Those three words of silence I share with you

Be with me now

There are many dreams that may come true

Then those loving thoughts of you and me

Only time to come the end we’ll see

Of those wishes and dreams I know not when

I belong to you

Is there a time just for you and me?

Will there be something for our love to be

Have we always to stay here deep inside

To love in our souls wherein we hide

My time for you

Someone

If you walked with the angels

would you walk with me ?

If you talked with the angels

would I hear?

If I knew you were an angel

would I dare?

If we both were as angels

Then we could share!

Velvet tears

Tears of velvet spheres roll down

I remember things that pleased me

They took my life turned it upside down

Then put me on a level ground

The love that will never die

Held forever it makes me cry

That I lost those days and times

But others came in and took control

They can never take my soul

A spirit free you gave to me

I know it will last into eternity

A love that is a joining of two

I felt your mind it held me so

Then I knew I couldn’t let you go

You hide here with me in comfort so

But sometimes the tears roll you know

They roll for all the physical things

That plagues other lovers ways

We have kept this love of our Spirit

Till we meet again at the end of our days
