When I Dance

When I dance
I throw the heavy gate aside!
Release the captive
Shed sunlight on my inner shadows
Tear the shackles
From the prison wall!

I am the wind
On a hot summer's day
The whispered thought
In a deep dream
The moonbeam on a mirror loch
The warm blanket
Of love's reassurance!

I have no form!
I answer to no-one!
I encapsulate freedom
A human form
Expressing joy in all it's glory
When I dance!

Rainy Day In Sauchen

Gentle and hypnotic
Rain falls through my bare trees
Mesmerised by sound and memories I sit
watching dripping diamonds

Owning nothing has a certain dark appeal
No longer caring if the roof leaks
Cut free from slavery
To materialism

Unbreakable stare
I move aside
To allow
To enter.

Solitude has opened up the depth in me
Now I crave the peace of my own company
As I used to chase the bright lights
Deep is my inner joy in the knowing
I am not chained in constraints of emotional need

For like attract like
And I have no attraction for those who
Have not plumbed their own depths
Too many rivers crossed
Too much stripped away
To sell my precious treasure
For a song

Needed to be pruned
In order to bloom
Too much dead wood
Keeps us stagnant
Rigid, unyeilding
Conforming to pre suggestion
I got tired of dragging yesterday around
Like a dead co-joined twin
Took a pair of shears to that
Albatross dangling from my neck
There is huge freedom
In surrender...
