Forward- #Poem #Poetry

My legs tremble

Muscles twitching under pressure

Knees buckling

I feel your shoulder

Under my arm

Pulling me up

When I want to fall down

Shoes slip on gravel

Grips missing their goal

You catch me as I fall

The ground flattening out

My stride is sturdier

You hold hands out

Congruent- #Poem #Poetry

Emotions bubble round me

Space between my stimulus

And impending reaction

Giving a gaping hole of peace

Allowing logical of mind

Peace of thought

Not to return to the life of chaos

Orange Clothed Man in Peace- #Poem #Poetry

Your eyes are calm

Wrinkles line your face from laughter

Serenity part of your clothes

A teacher you naturally make

Tailoring your wisdom

To guide others in practices of Buddha

But ask for nothing in return

Only to remove the scales from eyes

That tether us in negative cycles

Continue reading Orange Clothed Man in Peace- #Poem #Poetry

Fixed in the Wind- #Poem #Poetry

Take me as I am

For I cannot change

I am as fixed as the willow

Bending in the wind

Growing in sunshine

Shedding my leaves when winter comes

I am cyclical

And that will never end

 

Chiang Mai Temple- #Poem #Poetry

Children laugh

Smile so hard they shut their eyes

Roll on the floor in giggles

Parent cry ‘Shhhh’

In the reverent hall

Buddha sits golden on his thrown

Dama his message of life

Believers bow deeply

Head pressed to the floor in reverence

Body like a steading rock

Capturing the me in its vessel

Behaviour and deed igniting changes

Continue reading I am here, I am present- #Poem #Poetry

The Purest Self- Love- #Poem #Poetry

We gave up on each other

Replacements easily found

But pouring our energy away

Into a deep abyss of vampires

To return with no change

No boilstering of just me

The balance never in my favour

Water Beach- #Poem #Poetry

Take me to the sea

The salty water will cleanse me

Bathing in the powerful waves

Sand will rub down my rough skin

Showing my soft under belly

Sticking to the wet skin

In delicate beige swirls

Internal Supporting Arms- #Poem #Self- love

People say they care for me

But they judge me

People say they love me

But I’m never prioritised

People say I matter

But I’m the one who always concedes

People say, say and say
