The Search

I wrote this some time after I got my beautiful dog Zoey as it feels like she symbolises the unconditional love I have always been seeking within and without.

The Search

Branches silhouetted like witches fingers

puppeted by the roaring wind

Dead leaves quiver like spiders

shadowed by their search, nearing the end.

I gaze up into the velvet sky

where stars glitter like diamonds

matching the tears falling from my eyes;

cosmic energy, pulsating life.

I shut my eyes to find

beauty and blackness filling my soul

starlight radiating through my heart

reminding me I am home.

A fluffy ball of white

brushes past my leg

and barks her love

into the night.

Life in one name: Zoey.

The search is over.

Your Moon

Your moon eclipses my heart

sending my life into deep shadow

where the tiniest point of starlight

can stream through, via the Sun –

burning through my soul

setting my broken heart blaze

in Divine glory

yours and mine.

Autumn

Leaves floating in the autumn breeze

destined for their resting bed

setting the thicket alight

with fifty shades of gold

gradually turning to ash.

Abandoned trees silent

roots deep in the Earth

secure in their own being

awaiting the return

of the Divine Sun.
