Sanctuary

When the sun stops

shinning,

where do you go

for warmth.

When they call you
They say a prayer
They draw goodness
Like magnet draws nails

When you say your name
You fill the cup of greatness
Buried within you
From ages past

When we say our names
The wide gates of heaven
Are thrown open for
Our world to be showered
With unlimited Joy.

Keep teaching them
how to say your name
And make sure they
Call it with a “K”

They need to say it right
When your blessings
Becomes the sun.

Dedicated to EYEZ. Sorry I missed your birthday.

Raise a Glass

July may lay a heavy burden on our hearts
Serving us a cold mix of dread and uncertainty
With its nature of a beginning racing towards an end.
Life in July may lay on a fast lane
Sliding down the year while
Snacking on the minutes we feed our dreams
Making us put a peg on things
But all dreams have to be reactivated
For what are we without them?
All our plans must be reviewed
As work done in the past few months
Are bringing in opportunities in a sleigh.
So I have placed a bottle of bubbly in a bucket
And will raise a glass to what the bottom
Of this year has in its cooler.
The question is
Will you join me?

When they take you
without your permission
it makes you weak

don’t
let it.

FEED YOUR DREAMS

This world needs more butterflies
flapping beauty across the sky,
spraying colours through green leaves.
This world needs you to grow your dreams from the larvae days when all slide
along and your body is too heavy
for the wind to carry.

This world needs you to keep at it
till your dreams cut their way out
of their cocoon.

This world needs you to feed your dreams with actions, so that others
can believe there is miracle in them.

About You

Some poems push me
to the edge, draw me
back with a Whiplash force
And leave me breathless.

You are always
the subject of those.

May

At first,
Strive hard, strip down
to the bare minimum.
Take on the winter cold
And let snow drip down
your fingers.

After
Blossom with the spring.
Transform your dead bones
into a field of roses and daffodils.
Let May work it magic on your fears.

Never ever
Let the winter get you down
Hold on to May in your heart.
Remember, you are made
To always blossom even in winter.
