2/15 – 1. The Mother

January-February 2015 / Poetry Gallery

Tim Merry

Yes to the reminder that we are just part of the universe

One verse

In a song

So long

It does not belong

To Anyone

Or any part

Though it rests in every heart

In its wholeness

The caress

Of the winds and rains of Pele

Left me

Deeply touched, moved

New grooves

Cut in my consciousness

The caress

Of a gift arriving I have always had but never known

Worlds blown

Apart and …

2/15 – 4. Switch it on

January-February 2015 / Poetry Gallery

Tim Merry

Stepping up to voice

My choice

To let it go

The flow

Is beyond control

So when you fall

Roll

Then rise

Open your eyes

See the fresh horizon

Great eastern sun risin’

Resplendent

Transcendent

Heaven sent

An extension

To the new dimension

The fourth perspective

Reflective

Of the so far unseen

Subtle being

The place from which Gandalf and Arthur ride

Where secret valleys hide

Where Isaiah spoke messiah

The second coming is …

This is about the cravin’

for savin’
Wanting to control the rampant misbehavin’
Breaking the shackles of all the enslavin’

Break it down
Gather round
Cause we messin’ up the earth
Tearing up the turf
The place is our birth
Right
Someone turn on the light
Cause we all fightin’
In the dark
Thinking we be Clark
Kent
Heaven sent
To do it our way
I got news
I just gotta say
There is …

2/15 – 2. Human Family Tree

January-February 2015 / Poetry Gallery

Tim Merry

I’m tired

Of hearing how beings are wired

For self – destruction

The media barrage

Creating a collage

Of war

Environmental collapse by human cause

War on terror

The evening news documenting constant human error

Reporting the social fabric unwinding

Blinding

Us to our innate

State

Of being fine

I believe every human is divine

The gods we search and serve

Reside in us

And in this earth

There is no curse

Of Adam …

1/15 – 2. What’s It Gonna Take to Stay Awake?

January-February 2015 / Poetry Gallery

Tim Merry

“we wakin’” up all the time

I’m wakin’ up as I sit here and rhyme,

when i get lost in the flow of a river

feel a cold shiver

notice the clouds gather on a stormy day

feel sadness as one I love passes away

see a huge vista from a mountain top

and stop and bing!

my heart begins to sing

and I know I’m here for a reason

to ignore this inner …

1/15 – 4. Build the Arks (King Kong Song)

January-February 2015 / Poetry Gallery

I just read about the coming of the ice age

Earth’s rage

The mighty mother, the sage,

 Turning another page

Of evolution

A natural solution

The vibration

Of creation

Melting ice caps into the gulf stream flows

The European heating system blows

Beyond repair

My mother, father, sister, brother live there

Stop, bear witness, take a long good stare

Digest our reality and start to care

The planet is movin’ on

We all be …

1/15 – 3. Thank You

January-February 2015 / Poetry Gallery

Tim Merry

I feel that our divisions point to our unity

The pieces that we uniquely

Most search for in our lives

Are our path

Each of us seeking that which will heal us

Bring us back into wholeness

And that is different for everyone

Under the moon and the sun

That is why it has so many names

Labels and claims

In so many cultures and to so many people

The particular thirst we have …

1/15 – 1. Forgotten Places

January-February 2015 / Poetry Gallery

Tim Merry

Finding my feet

And already meeting

The slowness of this soil

This land

Which so much has passed over

A Blessing

No messin’

A Blessing

To have been bypassed

By the viral Rampage

Swallowing up my homelands

My Childhood lands

Which are wallowing in quicksands

Wild-life dissappearing

Wilderness becoming parks

Peoples wild side crushed – or called an illness

The digestion congestion

Of people, ideas, worlds

Trying to be controlled

Filling up a bottleneck…

1/15 – Lead Poem

January-February 2015 / Lead Poem

 Tim Merry

No more prizes for predicting the rain

The pain

New starts

Time to build the arks

Gather now at our community centres

With friends and mentors
And Elders
We all be the welders
Of fragmentation
On the edges of the new creation
The builders of the New Space Station
Right here in the arms of the mother
Where the heroes gather undercover
Sensing the future with sonar sound
The builders of boats abound

Readying …
