Contemplation of the quiet mind


Contemplation of the quiet mind…

as it slowly rewinds

the cascading waves

of thoughts

falling in an infinite abyss

of feelings

that drift in your eyes

floating in the skies

of everlasting dreams

drifting with the winds

of dark storms

looming at the edge of the sea

as you fly free

in the pouring rain

of the subdued pain

of the world

floating gently

with the contemplation…

of the quiet mind.

Under Your Gaze- #passionate #love #poetry for #ValentinesDay


Under your gaze


Passion spills from my heart,
Pounds from my soul,
Thunders from all that shivers inside,
Under your burning gaze
Desire melds like music and muse
Longing heartbeats cascade
In tempestuous calamity
Under your burning gaze
All that lies unseen
And all that waits, unspoken
Comes to life and trembles
Under your burning gaze

‘Love on the Train’

John Cowgill: Stories of the Railroad

The Train at the Depot in Thomaston Connecticut

A man and a woman arrive at the train station at the same time.  As they are waiting for the train, they glance at each other.  The glance becomes a look.  The look becomes a stare.

“Which train are you wait for,” he asks.

“The 9:00 to Charlotte.”

“I am waiting for the same train.”

“Maybe we can sit together.”

The train arrives on time.  They climb aboard.  They sit down next to each other.  The train is on its way.  They look at each other and smile.  Something begins to brew.  What is brewing?  It is Love on the Train, and it will be a long-lasting love.

May everyone have a Happy Valentine’s Day, and may you spend it with the one you love, and if you are alone on this day, may love on day find you.

Simply Bee

Peacock Poetry

Starting each morning with some time out in nature was one of the many highlights of the four inner leadership retreats that I attended. Each day Mother Nature brought new inspiration in the form of poetry of course! One morning whilst sitting and gazing out at the vineyards, I spotted a little bee, prompting me to write the following poem.

Bee Lines

A bumble bee flew next to me

Upon the forest heather

and sent the scent of Spring to me

No season lasts forever

The fresh green hints of rebirth’s tints

imbued my soul with lightness

Dark winter I have done my stint

Now I release the tightness

Each time I choose to sit I see

the shifts within my weather

A bumble bee flew next to me

Now I’m light as a feather
