2/15 – 1. The Mother

Poetry Gallery / January-February 2015

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 re-sown

Always connected and …

2/15 – 4. Switch it on

Poetry Gallery / January-February 2015

Tim Merry

Stepping up to voice

My choice

To let it go

The flow

Is beyond control

So when you fall


Then rise

Open your eyes

See the fresh horizon

Great eastern sun risin’



Heaven sent

An extension

To the new dimension

The fourth perspective


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 the inner fire

Walkin’ …

2/15 – 3. Superman

Poetry Gallery / January-February 2015

Tim Merry

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
Someone turn on the light
Cause we all fightin’
In the dark
Thinking we be Clark
Heaven sent
To do it our way
I got news
I just gotta say
There is a master plan
Listen …

2/15 – 2. Human Family Tree

Poetry Gallery / January-February 2015

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


Us to our innate


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 and Eve

We just …

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

Poetry Gallery / January-February 2015

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 voice is my treason…

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

Poetry Gallery / January-February 2015

Tim Merry

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 livin’ in the final …

1/15 – 3. Thank You

Poetry Gallery / January-February 2015

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 for fulfillment is unique …

1/15 – 1. Forgotten Places

Poetry Gallery / January-February 2015

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

No room for breath …
