“The Blessing”

Thank you,

for not suppressing

the Blessing.

For confessing,


that which

Faith, Hope and Love mean,

through decompressing

your Soul.

For yielding control


the dreams,

on your Heart.

Thank you,

for, simply,

having the courage,

to start.

For sharing the secrets,

the how-to’s,

with others,

without spin.

Thank you,

for letting us in.

For fighting the impulse

to stay

in a comfort zone.

For going it,


with Grace and with Truth.

Thank you for owning it.

The Gifting,

in which you fit,

so perfectly.

Righteously giving,

of your special blend..

and defeating the urge,

to make a mere brand,

from the honour

of Living.

Thank you,

for leading the way.

For showing the passion

to keep digging in,

when many,

would choose not to stay.

Thank you,

for knowing the time

to move on,

when the growing,

from the present season,

is done

and committing,

to unknown horizons,

to help,

without need, for a reason.

Thank you,

for all that you are…


for all, that you do

The World,

would be less than,

if it were not present,

and filled,

with the Blessing

of you.

“Awake The Dawn…”

Awake the dawn…

…and stream the rays through open curtains of my heart.

Remind me to arise.

Reflect the warming glint of courage

that will catch his eye…

…set alight like flints of passion for life.

Flickering. Independent.

Stoke the soul-desire to press on…

and indent my vision with dreams realised.

Mesmerise my triumph.

Render my secrets incandescent…

…and illuminate his savoir-faire

upon the topic of the inner me.

Raise a blatant laugh,

depicting bustling childhoods of the metamorphic city.

Fill my days until they grow opaque.

Pour my hurry into vats of peace…

…and as the blades of grass must yield

unto the sparkling sky,

release the soporific moon…

…return me to the flowerbed of pause,

wherein the time I borrow lends itself

to prescient invitations…


ready for his world, today,

I shall R.S.V.P, ‘Yes!’, to newfound love…

…and an evermore
