The Autumness Of It All

There is sweet music ringing through the canopy of trees
of raindrops singing and dancing with the fluttering leaves.
Tone by tone their song fills the silent woodland halls
with the season’s wonder and autumness of it all.

Recurring Dream

I know this place by heart,
Untrodden paths, silent waterways; each sacred part.
Shadows of palaces and secret alleyways so familiar seem,
Blindfolded I can walk here, in this recurring dream.

A Wondrous Tale

Such a plain and seemingly ordinary day,
Fading away, gracefully coming to its end,
In this old town made of stars that wandered astray,
Where dreams and fairy tales seamlessly blend.

Little by little, as the twilight shadows prevail,
The eve’s tender arms wrap the streets in slumber,
Subtly this old town weaves a wondrous tale
Of the silent night – every sound becomes a thunder.

Gently the dusk falls over the quiet alleyway,
Lone lanterns through the darkness faintly gleam.
Such a plain and seemingly ordinary day,
Yet it bears more magic than a fairy tale dream.

Walk Through The Mist

When all the world is cloaked in a veil of fog,
The only sounds my heart delights to hear
Is water dripping from the barren oak,
The echo of my thoughts, in a voice so sweet and clear.

Sand Is Like An Endless Sea

Sand is like an endless sea –
It makes waves and ripples in the breeze,
Stretches as far as the eye can see,
Until the tide rushes in and steals
The place it longs to be.

You Are The Missing Piece Of Me

You are the missing piece of me,
The piece I was always searching for –
In the mountains high and oceans deep
Until there was nowhere else to go.

And then, when lost by the raging sea
I found it, unexpectedly –
When the tide of your beating heart
Swept across the shores of mine.

You Are Here

You are here
With me by my side
Where the endless tides forever fall and rise

You are here
With me by the boundless sea
Where the tides and time forever cease to be

Eternal Summer

With time I realised
That with you by my side
There is eternal summer
Inside my heart

As The Storm Passes

The leaden sky is charged with thunder,
heavy with sadness, it turns into the darkest ink

that tints the darkness with a blue shade of wonder,
into which the mournful clouds quietly sink.

As the storm passes, the sky cries in torrents of rain,
the sleepless wind sings a chilling song to a drumming rhythm,
a silent blues about the end of the season’s reign,
and every raindrop becomes a poem unwritten.

Silent Pavement

Unnoticed, overlooked, brushed aside,
Lost under the footsteps, urgently rushing by.
Forgotten, tired, left behind
The silent pavement lets out a long, deep sigh:

If only you would stop your hasty stride,
If only you would pause, just for a little while,
Endless streams of colour would spring to life and rise
From the deep of my fractures, veins and ancient scars.

If only you would stop and look around,
You’d see a touch of beauty that lifts the heart,
Brightens up the days and makes you smile,
If only you would stop and glance, before you slowly wear me down.

Fire In The Sky

Such a simple thing, yet so often missed –
White clouds, a clear blue sky,
And a burst of colours left carelessly behind,
where they briefly touched, and gently kissed…

Come Along With Me

Come along with me,
Come along to the distant sea,
Where pretty shells sing gently to the breeze,
And shiny pebbles whisper words so sweet.

Take a walk with me,
Take a walk to the restless sea,
Where the silky sand, so dark and deep
Will softly sink beneath our feet.

Walk down to the sea with me,
Where the salt and wind will kiss our skin.
Where the fickle waves, deep blue and crystal clear
Bury their jewels, piece by piece.

Come along and search with me
For little treasures, hidden in the wind-swept sea,
Trinkets of shells and pebbles, and remembered dreams,
So pure and simple… precious, yet all for free.

In Silent Conversation

At the edge of an empty shore,
Tangled in stars we stand, all alone.
As the light drifts through the still of the night,
In silence we speak,
Beyond words, across the deep blue tide.

The sound of two hearts beating strong,
Breaking the calm of the quiet dawn.
Beating together in silent conversation,
In stillness we speak,
Beyond words, across the deep blue ocean.

Coming Of The Night

The dark steel skies are tired.
Through the still air, so quiet,
The last remnants of the day
Slowly, in silence ebb away
Into the blue velvet of the night.

Darkness descends from high above,
All colours blend into one,
The deep blue lake, the mountains blue
Waiting to fall into sleep, to dream anew.

The Moon So Bright

Over there,
in a faraway world,
where the moon so bright
turns darkness into light,
we stand together,
just you and I,
your hand in mine,
so closely intertwined
like ancient roots
of ageing trees
that together grew
into one
over the time…
Never apart,
always as one,
deep inside
the heart of the hearts…

You Are The River

You are the river
Running through my veins
You bring me to life
At the brink of the day

You are the light
Shining through my heart
You give me hope
In the dark of the night

Over The Silver Sea

The day was bright with the sparkling sun,
the fickle waves and the clouds above merged into one.
The wild wind blowing, strong and free
set the birds’ wings flying over the silver sea.

The Sea Of A Thousand Hues

The sea is painted in a thousand hues,
bright shades of orange
and dark tones of midnight blues…
