The Realm of Photahsiamirabel

A home of inspirational poetry, music and video by Lisa Gabriel and her friends

Injebreck....

Young light shimmers on a broken past...

And as the fountain stretches skywards

My spirit lifts with the light

And dances with the beauty of colour around us.

Where once was Man,

Where once men played,

Taking pleasure in the company and bustle of friends,

I might silently stand and hold my breath in wonder

As the beauty of nature

Reclaims this, our Earth, in the dancing light

Of this magical place.....

Breathless on the bridge….

 

Breathless on the bridge….

Wind whips scour incoming tide;

Fine rain scatter on the river –

Sand blasted aimless in its flow.

Reverse flow,

Against the grain

As was my life….

Cold cuts a fresh remembrance

Of pale death –

Crucifixion of spirit….

Yet now, at last, I rise,

Greet Dawn with open smile,

Trusting soul

Reborn in pure surrender,

Asking nothing more than this;

Awake, to search your Dreamtime

For a new reality –

On sleeping eyes

Plant love’s enduring kiss….

Come to me….

 

Come to me…. Come to me…. Come to me…. Come to me….

Come to me…. Come to me…. Come to me…. Come to me….

Come to me (Come to me….)

With the sound of rainbows in your hair

With a taste of summer rain

On my heart weave velvet chains

Only Heaven can compare.

Come to me (Come to me….)

In my arms find warmth and dignity

Take me to a foreign shore

So my Sun will shine once more

In the Oneness our souls share…..

And when you lay your head again

Upon my pillow

Whisper softly

That you’ll take away the pain,

That this life is not in vain,

Bending willow,

Whisper to me…..

Come to me…. (Come to me….)

Speak of life and not finality

Say you’ll never go away,

Play the games the lovers play,

Won’t you bend to my reality…..

Come to me…. Come to me…. Come to me…. Come to me….

Come to me…. Come to me…. Come to me…. Come to me….

And when you lay your head again

Upon my pillow

Whisper softly

That you’ll take away the pain,

That this life is not in vain,

Bending willow,

Whisper to me…..

Come to me,

Lay your burdens on my satin dreams

And you’ll never want for more,

Bending willows know the score

Riding storms with whispered themes….

Midnight, Lincoln, 23rd March 2006

 

How can I love you more

Each minute of each passing day?

How melt again

With every image,

Every word I hear you say?

Your words, my spirit, mingle

Touching heart and soul,

Sing Hope and Joy,

And exorcise what's past.

No loss -

And no more need to fight.

Our only Truth?

As One,

This Heaven we gain

When sweet at last we realise

From darkness

Always shines Love's light,

Dispelling all illusions -

Lies of grief and pain....

Thirty years on….

(For Jewels)

 

And when I say I love you

Will they chase this dream?

Pour doubt on innocence

To drive a sleeping heart

Back into frozen wastes of Time?

I bend to kiss your sleepy eyes

Within my Dream and know

No way, nowhere, no need to hide

The passion or the beauty

Of each moment spent with you….

Within this silent twilight

Of Time’s separation

There can be no End

But only bold awakening –

Beginnings have their own finality!

Thus, when I say I love you

They will learn to love an inner self

In all its infinite joy

Reborn from oh, such calm reality!

Forgiveness

 

This year warm;

As snowdrops pierce the veil

And early blossoms pale

Take form in virginal hedgerows,

Soft with improbability,

Sun rays warm my heart

In bright forgiveness

Of all past insanity….

Where would I be but for your Love?

Intended?

Lying easy

In Spring’s openness?

Untended?

Drifting wild upon the Path

The Universe bids bless!

I’m done!

I’m free!

With eyes new open,

Only now I see!

Twin Flames....

 

Flaming twins we started and flaming twins we stayed.

Each to the other mirrored all the warts that Karma made.

As frightened by my aspects you changed your hour of birth,

I saw in stark intensity my Heavenly Twin on Earth.

It never should have come to this, a mess of yin and yang,

Loved by a part-time poet who stuttered Sturm und Drang

And just as sweet Narcissus did, I saw myself and fell -

Mistaken I saw Heaven but my twin saw only Hell!

Like fireflies we hovered, each flirting in the light,

Until the glass was shattered, to reveal a gem more bright.

I hope you never wonder when the nights grow cold and wild

What might have been if flaming twin had not seemed flaming child,

Had Innocence not shocked you as your Lamb failed to impress,

Then Honesty not mocked you making Lion heart seem less!

Complete in my fractured heart

 

Complete in my fractured heart

I let you go -

Essence of One -

Love that like two blazing Suns

Would soar into eternity....

Such Faith and such Surrender!

Each waking hour was You –

Then Truth, embarrassed,

Intervened.

Complete in my fractured heart

I let it die

A blaze too strong for hearts to hold;

With Passion, Ego died,

And separation....

Complete in my fractured heart

I let it pass

Into the night of wild dreams and past failures

Mourning darkly for a little while

But gentler words of Love

Had vanquished Death!

So,

Good as you, my fractured heart,

An Innocent reborn,

Made whole by tenderness and Youth regained

Know there is no such dream as failure!

This Love will save all worlds of my own making!
