The Universe’s Pull

My stride is long

I’m stepping out

Beyond projection’s gaze

Assumption’s trailing

Out of sight

Stumbling over a phrase

Doubt is packed

With worry and fear

And posted non-return

Potential’s cup

Now overflows

Possibilities at every turn

Choices float

Just within reach

I’ve stuffed my pockets full

My head held high

I ebb and flow

With the Universe’s pull




What do you want from me?

What is required of me

To bid you farewell?

I try to greet you

Embrace you

As I would a friend

Yet you turn your back

Uncomfortable in my presence

Why do you not face me?

Let me reassure you

That I wish you no harm

Only to release you

From your dark abode

To set you free

To wander content

In new surroundings

For you to see

We have no need of each other



Love always holds you, it will never hinder you

Love will always make you shine

Love will always carve a path for you

Love is your greatest friend; your most beloved

Love will always ensure you are following your true path

Love will be your beacon of light; ensure you shine brightly

Love trusts the process, it conspires with your soul

Love co-creates all of your dreams

Love grows with your imagination

Love wants what’s best for you; always

Love clears the way; it knows of no obstacles

Love requires no deposit

Love is the true certainty of your life

Love supports, embraces and ensures success


Freewill is the choice; the choice to live with fear in your heart, or with love in your heart. The latter will always protect you; hold you safe and uncover for you where you should be and what you need to do to fulfill your life purpose. All fear seeks to do, is pull the rug out from under your feet.

We’re alike, you and I

We’re alike, you and I

We speak the same diction

Both seeking recourse

From others misaligned fiction


We’re alike, you and I

We sway to the same beat

We inhabit shared space

In our hearts, we’re replete


We’re alike, you and I

We observe old traditions

We see what is missing

Make note of omissions


We’re alike, you and I

We seek the same freedom

To transcend ancient habits

And no longer be lonesome


We’re alike, you and I

We share the same vision

Of how life could be lived

Through intuitive concision

The One Note Wonder

The One Note Wonder

With only one note

He would tweet night and day

Just this one soulful sound

That was all he could play


He’d spend time alone

Just to work on a tune

But the same note emerged

Every day, night and noon


Nowhere else in the land

Was there such a sad bird

For no-one took delight

In the noise that they heard


Even worms, they would giggle

At this repetitive sound

Saying the rain had more rhythm

When its drops hit the ground


So he worked on his whistle

For all he was worth

And ignored when the others

Gave his nest a wide berth


Yet he longed to make friends

With the birds who could sing

To be part of their concerts

Have a spring in his wing


But he felt so alone

And had no self-belief

Yet with only one note

Could he convey his deep grief


Days and months he spent moping

Feeling sorry for himself

Then realised what he was doing

Was just bad for his health


“I may not be songful

Sing a sweet lullaby

But I’ve something to say

So I must hold my head high”


So he flew branch to branch

Telling all those who’d hear

“I’m the Best One Note Wonder

In the Whole Hemisphere”


I am ready

For your embrace

My own embrace

Now, far-reaching

And makes whole

The inadequacies

I believed were mine

That indeed belong

To no one

I have no judgement

In kind

That you will be anything

Other than you are

So join me


That we belong

To ourselves

Before we belong

To each other
