I’ve made some recent improvements to the website which should make it easier to find and read past postings of poems. The vertical chronological list on the right-hand side allows you to click through to read more content. I hope this will make the site more interesting for anyone who has the desire or motivation to read more than just the most recent post of verse (usually between 2-5 poems) as there’s now somewhere between 65-90 poems archived. As always feedback is appreciated. Warmest regards, Alan.
Remote connections, situations
Where is the limit of seeing
… the reach of highest compassion?
What insight in searching.. study.. examining?
Noblest Consciousness, Creator of sublime understanding
affecting spiritually-consequential Words.
All eternity – infinite into the future – present – and
eternal throughout the past…
this is His continuum of Truth,
propelling time without error, propagating anxiety or travel of panic.
Within the edifice of His Just realm, a supernal architecture of Wisdom.

Filling of Spirit fresh
So many wells available
impulsively drawn to a seductive exterior
tempting with lavish-ornament gratification
… ‘outcomes’ an offering foul and choking.
Superficial perceived as substantial
Nothing fresh to imbibe.
How Spirit may be plenished, or depleted from body.
Ceaseless movement of ocean and river cleanses
all living water – making new its healthful, healing fluidity.
Natures worth simply recirculated.
First Bright Thirst
Drink in a DEEPER Truth
an Illumined REALITY
Indispensable guidance our Lord has issued –
safeguarding against inconstant motives,
a fortress repelling awry intentions.
Forever so why ever
HE is the remedy to self-doubt,
regret and spiritual imbalance
His light illumines redemption and its fulsome embrace
delivers salvation to whomsoever forever
That how-when-where whichsoever ceases never – hallowed
be His Name.
Seeking, receiving the divine fragrances…
deepening within the Holy writings,
of the inscrutable, unknowable Essence
The One illimitable, indecipherable Absolute.
Conjuring demons of our own volition
Self-erasing shadows – age-maturing as nature obeys seasons turning
Old growth boosted by tiredness into new
Illusion by will – construction through disintegration
A symmetry inherent in weathering.
Statistics of Love
New World Ordering numbers abound –
spreadsheet stacks of selflessness
calculus carried out with utmost care
studied with graphs of generosity
– arithmetic of altruism; compassionate calculations…
integrated with mathematics of heart movements
equals (=) logarithmic lovingness.
Firming up fortuitous fractions, unifying decimal point factions.
The numbers of a Renewed World Ordering abound
Articulations of grace
delivered by the convection of mercy
inside a conveyance of love.
One Creator of all things
Inscrutable, all-powerful Being
Whom every enlightened soul
Is compelled to worship
Through love and fear.
To be alive is to know Him
Whom is most real and vital.
The greatest blessing is that God endowed us
with the capacity to feel and understand love.
Whether we initiate or reciprocate – it is our drinking from
the aquifer of His compassion.
All are teachers of deeds
Exchanges of kindness supply
the remedy to spiritual weariness.
From foundations of frailty,
fatigue is transformed into fortitude.
Be witness to restraint between
the layers of the occult self.
Billowing blossoms of humanity
Graciously, an interracial bounty,
a development of beauty burgeoning within
God’s blessed garden.
A wiser world
widened in wonder
… awake and welcoming.
Universal trumpet signal of the Divine Phoenix’s rise
Every soul vital
Amalgam growth essential
Hear the Nightingale alighting upon a hollow reed to issue its melody.
View; step forward one
The limbs and arms take their skin of snow
enhancing beauty to forms of reach,
twist and curvature.
Taking form like a river
Contrasting with the mountain-dust dark.
Immoderate steps have blinded…
rains that bring no reins.
Deconstructed singleness brought together
Being oneself is not individual
– but a construction of separation by unifying parts.
Spume and punctuation
The five strides he first took towards God
were strained, slow-
centred in the past.
Marked by a flurry of memories.
One of those was seeing childhood
snow; beautiful, feathery ice
whipped off tree branches and
powdering the air with finest pixellation.
Choir of crickets noising the new dawn awake.
Butterflies and magpies flitting by impulse-itch –
Animals reacting by instinct, accepting roles in the whole dance of life.
Participants inside this evolving timeline, integral all and each buoyant.
Blending colours of the rainbow curl
like a kaleidoscopic whirl – into a
circle-half, the sky immersed in a
Around angles within an arc,
hues so vibrant… they copiously spark.
Into the sunlight moisture plays
– concentric colours by myriad ways.
Seen as a delightful friend… a visually enlivening, exquisite bend.
A talent of evil is staying hidden
… then choosing to not.
Wrong intentions damaging beloved righteousness
Trust twisted into toxicity, persons passing around poison.
Diabolical origins won’t easily be contained – locked back inside an unseen box
Countless wrongs happening, virally scourging hope.
Pride revealed in a robe of ignorance
… and then… appeared a barefoot angel come serving all with spiritual salves
of restorative balm.
God has put generosity into the human heart
entrusted each individual’s temple with truthfulness
and showered radiant justice upon each crown –
bestowals of His ultimate gift to His servants.
Ego sweeps its sword-edge
shakes its stubborn barbs.
Anonymous, it dislikes. Humility, it shrinks at. Selflessness it misunderstands.
Loving, thriving, compassionate community alienates ego.
O Song, wonder with wing
Daystar cleaving night…
Spilling One light of perpetual flight
Awakening with sight…
By regal Cord the weave’s supple might.
Minds changed from behind boundaries
Dissolving divisions of understanding.
All tribal blood’s sameness in veins.
Scent of All Things Coalesced
Scent of coalescence,
Fragrance of the Immortelle Amaranth
Transcends from the tellurian to the celestial.
Pacifying, unifying –
Suffusions of the perfume of global spirituality.
The sensing of all things, as unity, in peace.
