Mother welcomes home

the lost and newly found

She gives of her tranquility

a soulful slice of sound

inside her green embrace

she comforts all the drowned

.

Undulating patterns set by

her gentle master’s hand

steadily growing, blooming

responding to command

a traveler tried, well seasoned

claims a foothold on her sand

.

Challenged by arrival

passion blooms anew

a touch becomes a violation

it changes all she knew

compassion wins desire spins

life reaffirms what’s true

.

She alone decides

what fits within her plan

light measures, weighs

wind finishes as it began

the traveler stands true center

be they woman or be they man

.

.

thin sails bellowing

hold the captured light

a new world explored

maps graphed by inner sight

unchained thoughts challenged

voiced softly by the night

In Waves…

Roots CicelyRobinLaing©2011

.

furrows fed by tides

drink salty tears growing naught

death arrives in waves

Celebrate the Spring

new life seeded in her womb

blooming in her warmth

.

Easter comes fulfilled

Winter’s hard shell newly shed

sweet color reborn

.

Let her touch with love

deny not her ancient roots

propagate the joy

.

Faucet CicelyRobinLaing©2011

.

I didn’t know it was there

till I turned around

deep impressions in soft flesh 

a silent scream.. a fall to the ground

a few swear words launched skywards

a limp.. a lump.. a bloody scrape

jarring my happiness

marring my body-scape

souvenirs in purple and blue

all thanks to objects

just out of “bleeping”.. view

Water as Glass CicelyRobinLaing©2012

.

Inside a tiny drop

friction held

a world to view

a reflection caught

.

take my measure

hold it tight

let it slide

a world alive

.

A touch will shatter

a flood released

illusions shared

devoured deceived

.

Time has frozen

trapped on silent lips

the deep of night

spies for the moonlight

.

“Where I have been?”

he says and no more

tension broken reabsorbed

it never really was

.

it was so much more

.

Copper…

Copper Sea CicelyRobinLaing©2012

.

solid waves of green

bright Earth’s core, ore to molten

by art is reborn
