Declaring Love of Poetry

(Close Your Eyes and Ride the Stream-  my digital music composition)

P.B. Shelley

‘They say I was an atheist.

God knows it isn’t true.

I worshipped Him in Nature

with my heart a humble pew!’

 

I have had an enduring love of Poetry in every timeline of every life on this planet no doubt.

This Shelley says a cheery ‘Hi!

Declaring Love

You (my digital music composition)

Declaring Love

Every thought and feeling
is a dancing colour
and a voiceless sound
declaring what we choose to be
moment to moment
in the ever-changing Now.
No word is spoken
yet you somehow know
how to read
the unseen colours
and the unheard sounds
whenever I choose to be
Love.
(A universal love poem)

May your Spirit shine brightly, Shelley

New Choices

Every Winter Ends With Spring (my digital music composition)

New Choices
When your dreams
lay shattered all around
and your hopes
lie smashed upon the ground
as your life
bleeds its joy, gagged and bound,
defeated by demons
called ‘Failure’, ‘Mistake’, and ‘Sin’—
it’s time to go within.
Release your pain.
You’re free to choose again.
Remember
who you really are.
Your Spirit
is much greater by far
than those dreaded tricksters
called ‘Failure’, ‘Mistake’, and ‘Sin’.
It’s time to go within.
Release your pain.
You’re free to choose again.

May your Spirit shine brightly, Shelley

Victoria

 

(Every Winter Ends With Spring-  my digital music composition)

 

Once again the Seasons change.

Winter’s white shroud weighs heavy

on dead leaves and frozen flowers

buried in Canada’s vast land of ice and snow.

Yet Spring comes early to where I live.

Today, Victoria and I walk leisurely

among visiting crowds so eager to see

her scattered rainbows of flowers,

rain-jewelled shrubs, ever-festive holly,

towering guard trees, favoured paths,

and wave-kissed coastal shores.

Everywhere we look, there are cameras

opening their eyes wide

to view the feasts of visual splendour.

I stroll along lush green grass

and watch in silence and wonder

as Victoria smiles with gracious poses.

Queen with a flower-gemmed crown,

this Spirit of Spring, my companion,

walks leisurely with me.

May your Spirit shine brightly, Shelley
