The Edge of the Light

There is dark

On the road to Home

It revives

Surprises

When we feel that we’re alone

It cloaks us like ink

 

We reach brink

Of our own limits

Fortune tells

Unheard Tales

The faithless the self impales

Carry no crosses

 

Heartbeats still

Raging fires cease

The disease

Self made ache

We commit the same mistake

Over and over

 

Withered eyes

Seek out the lanterns

Look outside

Not inside

Curtains ruffle as they slide

Concealing outcomes

 

The Light shines

I hold it within

Starry skies

Breath that cries

Outreach of my inner depths

When the will wavers

 

Seek the star

When the night is dark

Like a spark

It will guide

Know that in darkness you ride

The Edge of the Light

 

Reading of the poem:

Shine a Light – Banners

 

« When you come to the edge of all of the light you’ve known and are about to drop off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen. You’ll have something solid to stand on or you’ll be taught to fly » Patrick Overton

Fires roast

Chest nut on a fork

Babies fly

Borne by stork

Kingdoms whirl and fairies lie

In the dark of woods

 

Three pigs squeal

The wolf an outpost

Chimes reveal

Senseless act

Dogs of hell brought to the heel

Silence in the ghost

 

Five seek five

In shining beehive

Gold in pound

Strikes the ground

Dissolving what mattered most

Currents see to strive

 

Souls that dread

Gloomy Hearts of lead

Wings that spread

In love fed

Morning dewdrops winding fled

In the air ahead

 

Frame alit

Spirals through the slit

Paths that split

Candlelit

Raging towards road sunlit

Twining orbs that flit

 

Minds that sum

Good bad and the glum

Fingers drum

Lips that hum

Tuning mellow days to come

Darkness overcome

Twenty-three fools sit

In cornerstone of fires

Alit with your smile

 

Igniting landscapes

The blackbirds that the mind shapes

Irresolute skies

 

Feathers translucent

Picking up black emotion

Transforming its scent

 

Meeting of the Tides

A play of twelve nets forecast

Mesh Dragon Star rides

 

Walk with a fiddle

Tune into everlasting

Path to Home riddle

 

Mind never belongs

Heart a gateway in between

Walking through the throngs

Feel the beat

Reach you through the heat

Morrow’s wave

Receding

The pulse retreating to mark

Peak of tidal throb

 

Feel it bob

Nothing left to rob

Within head

Daily bread

The soul remains out of reach

Rules you cannot breach

 

Feel it come

The end of your sum

Over slum

Minds go mum

Uprooted lions now brew

Fires of their crew

 

Heat to face

Winning through the Grace

Three by one

Fate undone

Curvature beyond Disgrace

Breaking the rat race

The grief mind sharpens

Eyesight of the heart’s delight

Relinquishing might

 

Control of outcome

Buried in the seeping sands

Pits of yesterday

 

Daily sandstorms blow

Dismembering all traces

Of fires in deserts

 

Simplicity’s ways

Narrow streets transformed highways

Ride into gardens

 

Nighttime crawls to light

With breath of the morrows hope

All under the Sun

 

The darkness broken

By bright accumulated

Life in the Open

Cycles start

Within the days count

Sundays end

In Mondays

Twirling through Fridays tolling

To days of the King

 

Hidden coins

Treasure my crowning

Golden steel

Shines at heel

Drowning water ankle deep

Weaknesses we keep

 

Fruit of loins

Baskets plentiful

Chosen few

Green in hue

Ripened by the sun and dew

Morrows promises

 

They depart

Like the rolling stones

Downhill slide

Left to glide

They carve pathways in waters

Unbridled their ride

 

Like the tide

Ebb and flow of Love

Wandering

Reaching back

When the storms turn skies pitch black

Sporadic in touch

 

We juggle

Solitary spoils

Burning coils

Uprooted

When the fires invade trees

Sudden burning frees

Expunging

Sleep comes to an end

Followed trend

Breaking down

The depths of Earth retrieving

Jewels of the Crown

 

We are One

Realisation

Like the sun

Now dawning

Upon latecomers yawning

As they stretch out slow

 

We surpass

The high and the low

Battlefields

Abandoned

The will guided by the Heart

New cycle to start

 

The waters

Flooding the wastelands

Cover hues

Of rainbows

They sparkle through morrows’ dues

Paid through the brainwaves

 

Freed the slaves

Their chains dissolving

Heated pit

Raging fires

The burning flames of desires

Prometheus lit

 

The mother

Divine feminine

She calls sweet

Three to meet

The wings carry us in flight

Spirit me the Light

Shadows flee

Across wilderness

Icy fires

Light their frames

Bearing weight of twisted games

They run in sleek pairs

 

In between

There stands rubber tree

Its bark runs

Wild and free

With the blood of forgiveness

Token of freedom

 

Every step

Twirling on itself

Creating

Tidal wave

Absolution washing up

On the bare soul shore

 

I stand lone

On brink of kingdoms

Screeching past

Present times

Future of retreating crimes

My staff pierces doors

 

The ripples

Call out to temples

Giants leak

Children speak

We replicate our doom’s days

Carelessness our ways

 

Memory lane

Etched in the stem cells

Swirling voids

Progressing

The inner voice suppressing

Power of black holes

Giant frames

Invisible hands

Seal entrance

To pathways

The door beckons as it sways

I have my own ways

 

Blue twister

In merry-go-round

Blocks the sound

Locks out light

The whirling slow out of sight

Into pitch black night

 

Other side

Uncoiling whirlpools

Mind now stilled

Chest expands

Flowing into the circles

Bubbles of smooth air

 

Come hither

The voice loud commands

Its demands

Chronicles

Spirit stories from dead books

Decoding the names

 

Terse verses

Split the white waters

Lock dungeons

Trade dragons

The bodies leave in wagons

In between the rays

 

I read shrill

My alphabet space

Between dots

Within lines

Splitting into horizons

Under the twin suns

 

Going home

The giant leaps low

A footstep

Covers Earth

Renewing forgotten birth

Into the abyss

 

Sinking ground

Retreats in waters

Tornadoes

Spiral black

Beckoning to journey back

When soul loses track

 

Parallel

The crosses spit fires

Naked lanes

Define planes

Where spaces intersect straight

In between the voids

Our burdens

The sum of sorrows

We carry

Their dead gait

Knees caving under the weight

Of wasted morrows

 

Open heart

Let the sorrow drip

Like the rain

Kissing Earth

See in their embrace rebirth

Of inner children

 

We were once

The kings of playgrounds

Our chests bare

Laid down hair

The dark stringent marks of Time

Still unwoven threads

 

Soul carefree

We danced with the winds

That shook fierce

All the fires

Within heart carving desires

The mind a wild bird

 

Bleak routine

Settling in with hooks

Anchored us

Rooted feet

Day by day we faced defeat

Of the larky times

 

The dreams dreamt

They are lost in mists

Read in books

Blown in winds

Paper scattered now rescinds

Every magic word
