Water

Plummeting from the sky, In the fall; renewed
Cleansed of all the lies, this fall is all that’s true
I am the parting of the sky that grants you a view
I am love returned to the flower in bloom.
I am the drops in the garden manifested while you sleep
I am the promise in the sky that the iris can see
I am the river that fights its way onto the sea
When you are parched, you come back to me.
I am the clouds lined with gold and silver
I am the raging thunder of your river
I am the breeze that makes you quiver
I am nothing on my own, If not a giver.
I am the mirror reflecting the moon
I carry bottled messages “see you soon”
In your sorrow, I am the storm that looms
I am one with the heavens and one with you.
I am the rising of the tides
and the tears that fall from your eyes
I am the truth that remains in the parting of lies
I am your answered prayer descending from the skies.
I meet with the horizon seeking you evermore
I carry all your ships as they head back to the shore
I ebb and flow in the ocean; galore
I greet the sunrise with a kiss at its core.
I am your cleansing shower, the wet on your lips
I am falling gently between your hips
At the first light of morning, you are the one I kiss
I am the one you can’t help but miss.

Requiem

I remember the days when the spirit wouldn’t hunger
When I crashed with the waves and I spoke like thunder
I remember feathers and wings; a part of my soul
Then passions consumed me and swallowed me whole
I remember my plummet from the heavens to the seas
and that there was a time without you or me
I remember creation and the fruit of its seed
When there was just truth, no need for a creed
I remember the time when darkness reigned
When the seeds of jealousy were fed in the rain
Now heaven cries almost every day
As it witnesses children become predator and prey
Yet through these sun-kissed trees, bleeds a holy light
There is still a tomorrow and a will to fight
Could it be that the apple was taken from the tree
So I’d be reminded that without you, there could be no me?
