Hey Mikey, I watched the video and I loved it. The music goes well with the poem. I watched some of your other videos too. I especially liked the spinning crop circles. Funny how they seem to be going clock wise and counter clock wise at the same time.

RE: Poetry
which world do you choose to dwell?
a dream of heaven or a dream of hell?

what is the message that you radiate out?
is it a message of hope or a message of doubt?

every second of every single day
we are each a message on display

aware of my power...perfection is what i see
discarding all of the lies i've found the real me

no victim...no judge...only inner peace remains
all of life embraced both the joys and the pains

full of respect and responsibility
i trust in the universe and eternity

a message of love from a messenger of light
from the truth of "i am" my heart takes flight

i am an earth angel and words are my wings
when i open up my mouth harmony sings

peace,
mikey

RE: Poetry
Sorry to double post but I was so excited, then wanted to read threw the posts.
Mikey thank you, reading your poetry makes my heart go all big and fuzzy ;D

I have way too many to share... as I think this way. Here is 3 random ones from very old 15years + middle 10 yearsish and newish this year Smile


'We've all smelt the flowers and all seen the sea, but now it's inside we just need to be free,

I've felt my own wings and I've seen them on you! Can we not use them? and everyone too?

Let’s fly from this planet and visit the sun, tell him we know that life should be fun.

We won't try to hurt you, were having a laugh. Getting higher and higher there’s no coming back.

When freedom is out there you can't let it go! How the hell could we with all that we know.

You might see us running; you might glimpse us fly, come see what is out there! Are you going to try?





Smell it & hear it catch it if you can,
I can feel it around me but not touch it with a hand.
Taste it or sense it, believe that its there,
Can anyone see it? Dose anyone care?
Like a web that were part of.
Like the ripple that we make.
In the something that is bigger a part we all do take.
(followed by a big picky of a heart)




Integrity and honesty must always lead the way,
Let your soul shine threw in all that you say.

Act in the way that you know to be right,
Let intuition be your guild and let love be your sight.

Remember all around you are perfect vulnerable lights,
Trust them not to hurt you and do what is right.

Together we are powerful,
Together we are love,
Threw integrity and honesty
We will find the light above.

RE: Poetry
One drop in the ocean
One flight of a wing
One note in a chorus
In a song, we all sing

A rainbow heart of Oneness
That holds us all like glue.
For the now is in the everything
They’re all a part of you

RE: Poetry
thanks for sharing andy Heart

brothers and sisters of sorrow
let's create a brighter tomorrow

with faith and a strong will power
let's cleanse like a heavenly shower

with our intents and with our deeds
keep on planting those heartfelt seeds

the garden of earth is ready to bloom
be a source of light in the midst of gloom

easing the suffering and easing the pain
expressing love is what keeps us sane

far far from home did we all wander
the reason why is something to ponder

for we are all here by choice no doubt
the cry from gaia that made us all pout

and so we came full of passion and care
knowing deep down we had love to share

peace,
mikey

RE: Poetry
Thanks friends, for your wonderful poems. You have such beautiful hearts.

Heart
The Resemblance Between Your Life and a Dog

I never intended to have this life, believe me -
It just happened. You know how dogs turn up
At a farm, and they wag but can't explain.

It's good if you can accept your life - you'll notice
Your face has become deranged trying to adjust
To it. Your face thought your life would look

Like your bedroom mirror when you were ten.
That was a clear river touched by mountain wind.
Even your parents can't believe how much you've changed.

Sparrows in winter, if you've ever held one, all feathers,
Burst out of your hand with a fiery glee.
You see them later in hedges. Teachers praise you,

But you can't quite get back to the winter sparrow.
Your life is a dog. He's been hungry for miles.
Doesn't particularly like you, but gives up, and comes in.

~ Robert Bly ~

Solar
Solar

On a gray day, when the sun
has been abducted, and it's chill
end-of-the-world weather,
I must be the sun.
I must be the one
to encourage the young
sidetracked physicist
working his father's cash register
to come up with a law of nature
that says brain waves can change
the dismal sky. I must be the one
to remind the ginger plant
not to rest on the reputation
of its pungent roots, but to unveil
those buttery tendrils from the other world.
When the sky is an iron lid
I must be the one to simmer
in the piquant juices of possibility,
though the ingredients are unknown
and the day begins with a yawn.
I must issue forth a warmth
without discrimination, and any guarantee
it will come back to me.
On a dark day I must be willing
to keep my disposition light,
I have to be at the very least
one stray intact ray
of local energy, one small
but critical fraction
of illumination. Even on a day
that doesn't look gray
but still lacks comfort or sense,
I have to be the sun,
I have to shine as if my
sorry life itself depended on it.
I have to make all the difference.

Live The Life You Love

live the life you love
always seeking to rise above

the never-ending climb of light
towards greater feelings of delight

the pull to evolve...the push to become
the mystery of existence we cannot plumb

so little we know...so much to understand
ungraspable like a hand trying to hold sand

and so we surrender to the unknown
where the seed of faith and hope is grown

watered by every question we ask
in the soil of grace we forever bask

as we follow our bliss our dreams flower
the here is herer and the now is nower

as we shift from intellect to intuition
our heart's desire comes to fruition

Feel Instead

let everybody free
let them be
let them be

free of any judgment
free of any thought
free of any opinion at all

drop from your head
feel instead
feel instead

use your heart
use your gut
use your empathy

connect and be whole
connect at the soul
connect at the soul

know the infinite self
hear the eternal silence
see the crown of golden light

peace,
mikey

Seed... soil... water... flower... fruit! I love it, Mikey. Your poems always tease a smile out of me. Big Grin. And that one tells a wonderful story. Do you have a tune in mind for the second one? I think it could be a song.

as soft as i am strong
as right as i am wrong
love sings its' eternal song

as dark as i am light
as black as i am white
love embraces day and night

as old as i am new
as false as i am true
love flows right on through

as sad as i am glee
as trapped as i am free
love is an endless mystery

as lost as i am found
as quiet as i am sound
love goes round and round

as still as i am flow
as fast as i am slow
love is all there is to know

RE: Poetry
potential beings of limitless light
a mixture of gold and a most magnificent white

the source of love flows freely to us all
with unbound compassion awaiting a call

when you sincerely ask for help to guide
the whole cosmos answers and is on your side

for the infinite wants you to blossom and grow
that you are eternal...the universe wants you to know

synchronicities occur to keep one on track
whatever you desire love has got your back

gifted with a freedom that you cannot lose
forever and ever you have the potential to choose

our experience is how the creator does learn
gaining valuable wisdom with the ability to discern

as we surrender our mind to our humble heart
the blessing that is now is always a fresh restart

mikey

Perfectly Imperfect,
Humble servant of the light,
Have faith in what you’re feeling,
trust you’ll do things right.

The music won’t stop bringing,
the light that can't go out.
Your mind won’t need the questions,
as your heart will sooth the doubt.

RE: Poetry
Heart

to give without expectation of return...

to live each moment ready to learn...

to clear the way to innocence...

to hear the silent essence...

be unconditional...

allow the christ within to shine...

be non-judgmental...

open the heart to the divine

to die on each exhale...

to be reborn every blink...

to bless on each inhale...

to feel love instead of think...

be all-pervading...

don't leave anything out...

be all-inclusive...

leave no room for dobut...

to soar like an eagle...

one must spread one's wings...

to roar like a lion...

the truth inside first rings...

to seek service where one can assist...

to be the change...to persevere...to persist...

be humble...

don't try to rise above...

be patient...

every being is worthy of love...

peace,
mikey

to serve is what i intend
to help any broken heart mend

to reflect a smile upon a frown
to pick up one who is down

to hear when another speaks
to guide a friend that seeks

to see the beauty of each frame
to know we are all the same

to breathe every breath in praise
to shine forth the inner rays

to sing with the birds at dawn
to respect both queen and pawn

to greet the self in all with love
to imitate the heavens above

to choose each thought with care
and most of all...TO SHARE!!!

Hello friends,

I've gotten behind in reading this thread. Your poems are evoke oneness in the best way - simply. Thanks for sharing these gems.

Here's one from a favorite poet of mine:

Love Dogs

This longing you express is the return message....

Listen to the moan of a dog for its master.

That whining is the connection.



There are love dogs

no one knows the names of.



Give your life

to be one of them.

as i sever all ties
my waking self dies

the earth dream clears
a mirror world appears

made of my hopes and fears
an environment of my tears

hearing light and seeing sound
everything is flipped upside down

i start to spin around and around
i begin to dig and a treasure is found

another layer...one more level deep
all i want is peace...all i want is sleep

yet there is no rest within a dream
just colors dancing from ocean to stream

RE: Poetry
There is no dark energy that can't be defeated with a simple smile.

let us all remember our free will.

It is not hard to fight the darkness.

We have light within

that is enough to shine through all creation.

If we keep in mind the oneness that we are,

then no darkness can encroach.




There are those who do not care about humanity.

They care only about their own.

They choose to believe that they are absolute rulers of creation.

To these misguided souls, the universe is nothing more than something to
use.

Do not pity them.

They are part of the learning process.
I love it

It is like going through many levels of experience, many densities, if you will.

What's our best?



That is the question that has not been asked before

Yet it is on the back of our minds



We reach for that moment, where we can use all our potential

Only to find, that life can't be given away

and once aware, one is responsible



Our best is beyond our grasp

Yet we can always reach for it

Because it is as close, as our breath



Our best is always

yet to be discovered



Infinity has no limits

This is a good one that I use in my profile..


Turn and turn again the starry heavens spin
Upon themselves, a spiral dance
The Gods themselves entwine
And then the Ages recommence
When You and I combine
For You and I the difference shall dissolve
And separation shall appear illusion
And difference shall appear illusion
And conflict shall appear illusion
And enmity shall appear illusion
And God Almighty shall appear a Unity
An everlasting ground for our Infinity
Within our endless striving for eternity
Unto the Ages everlasting

Armageddon
This infant species
Which has yet to learn to walk,
Is crawling towards a cliff.

Led by the haunting sound of a spring breeze above
And the beckoning, crashing waves, down below.
Yet to the cliff we race.
Shoving each other aside.
As we rush up, to the edge
To fall.
Do we know what is in the waters below?
To survive
Holding to nothing but a winning dream?
Those we shoved aside as we rose,
Higher up that most challenging peak?
Did they push us over?
Will we make it back to shore?
To try that climb again?
Or will we succumb
to the Gods of the sea?

Say good night
To the night

And welcome the day

And as the day goes on, and the night come calling

say,
good night to the night "music "
good day to the day " music "

And as the day and night move along

and the weeks and months crowd about

Until the year is full

pregnant

ready to give birth

to another

Day "music"


Happy new Day

Heart
the infinite silence
holds all the guidance
one would ever need

your only task
is simply to ask
each question forms a seed

the eternal presence
of your innocent essence
loves you no matter what

so wake up each day
and remember to play
don't let your heart ever shut

if something gets you down
and your moping around
look in the mirror and see

that you are still here
through sorrow and fear
the truth sets one free

who you are doesn't change
circumstances rearrange
yet light remains at the core

your job is to shine
perceiving all as divine
from the mountains to the shore

happy new year,
mikey

With only one word
You took the ice out of the air again
And put the heat back in the sun again
With only one word

With only one word
You put the weapons of the world away
It's funny how one single thing you choose to say
Will change the world and then
It suddenly means something better

Every single thing I see, good or bad
You make it mean something better
Every pleasure, every pain
Every nightmare that I dream
Make it mean something better

With only one word
You change the ending of a tragedy
And summon power from the injuries
With only one word
It's funny how one single thing you choose to say
Will change the world and then
It suddenly means something better

Every single thing I see, good or bad,
You make it mean something better
Every pleasure, every pain
Every nightmare that I dream
Make it mean something better

Every time that I can't make a sound
And I think that I'm starting to drown
Even when I try to take you down
Every time that I think I'm alone
And I can't find a word of my own
You take me home
And then you change the world again

With only one word
You took a war out of my history
It's funny how one single thing you choose to see
Could change the world
And give it back to me so much better

Every single thing I see
Every single thing I dream
So much better
Every pleasure, every pain...
