Travelling Poet


Love, Life, Travel and Poetry...


"Are we lost?" "No, said the Poet, We are just on an Adventure".










Reach out in mind, far beyond this place,

Forget humanity, in its scale and disgrace,

Back past origins, where we cease to exsist,

Delve past the womb and spaceless mist,

No emptiness here, no dimensions found,

No sun's, no moon's or solid ground,

Unimaginable depth, seeks multiple births,

Not one, not two, but infinite Earth's,

Incapable of reason, for the greatest mind,

Words can't describe, what here you will find,

Mystery and madness, an energy so raw,

The powers that be, would exsist no more.....














Sleek slender metal tube,

Whence doth light emit your stop,

Dark laden dualist of the lowest order,

Taketh not from your womb,

but govern energy from within,

Joy to many a distant traveller on steely rails of comfort,

Beings return, time again governs journeys end,

Gaping ramparts crave childish behaviour,

Inside out,

Viewed not from minds eye,

Advertise global notions, subliminal,

One ticket to travel,

By any means......











Promise I won't pop, but hold me tight,
Don't let me drop,
I'm fragile, light and easy with my upward flight,
I promise I won't pop,
But hold me tight....
Admire my colour, please never stop,
You slipped, now off I go,
Up and away where warm winds blow.
Only dare to follow with your eyes,
as I become smaller,
To your surprise..
Further up in outer space,
Is where I popped without a trace...












A sea of nightmares, a sky full of dreams,
Under each current, is all what it seems?
Lands of adventure, mountains to climb,
Transparent barriers, seem eerily sublime.
Air infused thermals, dynamic turbine,
The silence of a cosmos, fading gongs chime,
Seconds of growth, cell after cell,
Buddha met Allah, in heaven and Hell....











Lay me down,
When Earth turns cold,
Rays burn brown,
Darkness rolls in,
Reunited by firelight,
Lover of destiny,
Wilted roses with thorny issues,
Death mounts up,
Covers unwrap,
When Earth turns cold,
Fire rains down,
Shelter caves in,
Beauty ignites,
Photographic firefights,
Shutter expands,
Flags of peace,
Bloody release,
Dying shame, our expense,
Tears of men, end of game,
Life goes on,
Servitude talent,
Stands alone,
Head held low,
Fires glow,
Whirling mess,
I confess,
Untouched ground,
Poignant point changes course,
Fleshy mounts,
Carrying seeds,
Deathly deeds,
Ends all life....







Cobbled feelings contrast mirrors edge,
given light to ease burden from distant cargo.
Loathing, too high.
Greeneries worm through mulled fruits.

Know less? Think mire?
All, "Twas brillig," until shards of solidity snapped,
turned to infantile jelly... Simple really...
Give.. Be..


















I have become machine, circuits, wired,
streamline and cold.
Truncated, programmed, emotionless, less bold.
Waiting in shadows how I yearn to dream,
voltage my deity,
earthly machine.
Kill without feeling, life without thought,
binary bloodlines, nodes, ones and naught.
Electronic slavery, oh eater of flesh,
gives nothing but motion,
trapped in the mesh.
Perpetual drumbeat, wired to web,
Smothering humanity,
I said...




















The sun is setting,
The children sleep,
The men at battle,
The women weep,

The death's are many,
The blood is shed,
The food is low,
The cattle dead,
The winters coming,
The end is near,
The panic's rising,
The women fear,
The battle's lost,
The men return,
The graves are dug,
The lesson Learnt....


Pondering, I looked inside,
Oggling, and starry eyed,
The things I saw, they defied,
For me, no laws, to obide,
The chains, they held,
They held me tied,
Nobody, no-one, on my side,
for the truth I saw,
The truth I spied....







Lightning, probing, dart like thoughts,
Try to seek me from afar,
Reeking, seething, mental puss,
Sticks to my mind like tar.
Violated, raped and tortured,
Ripped apart with hands all feeling,
Red hot pokers send me reeling,
As secrets layed out bare.
Loneliness, primordial darkness,
Eternal suffering, no more to tell,
My own living hell...



Question go unanswered,
The reason is neglect,
Answers go unquestioned,
With a myriad effect.
Days merge into weeks,
The silence will remain,
Months turn into years,
As the system starts to drain.
Power gears corruption,
Those in charge are changed,
The mind can't cope with power,
As intelligence deranged...



Numbers go on swirling,
Equations interbreed,
Velocity is hurtling,
At an interstellar speed.
Cosmic intervention,
As galaxies relapse,
Particles bombarding,
From implosion to collapse.
History in the making,
The futures in the past,
Space time remaining,
Destined not to last...


The world is an oyster,
With a pearl gleaming bright,
The future's a doorway,
That's shut and locked tight,
The key is within us,
But tucked deep inside,
For those with the knowledge,
It will open and confide,
With realistic proposals,
With luck and fair play,
With hard work and courage,
We can all have our day....



On cold bleak nights the loneliness expands,
Forever threatening to engulf beyond return,
With infantile mind we venture unknowingly,
Hoping somewhere through neglect to learn,
We work on statistics, problems perplex,
Inventions outdated by inferior design,
Cornering, covering our burnt remains,
Fate in the shadows playing on our mind,
Those who seek, if at first only crawl,
Dissimilar in thinking with knowledge at hand,
Inferiority an ever present furnace,
Closed to many, openness is grand....


Beyond the limit lies understanding,
Burdening humanity with its infected fruit,
Through evolution we consumed,
Filled beyond reason, greed remained,
Substituted only by curiosity,
Boredom overcome with childish destruction,
Denial, chastised by constant reminders,
Consequence becomes myriad in effect,
Suppression now stretched,
Seemingly stagnant in the shadows,
Coiled, pulsing, Yet....., tenacious.



The line drawn, the morphic void,
The curved arc, the planned cuboid,
The diamond edge, the mathematical tool,
paralleled to diagonal.
The shaped ideals, the angels found,
The square transformed, the circles round,
The oval changed, the result oblong,
Multi-sided octagon....


A subtle moment of reflection,
Divided societies amid destruction,
Caused only by themselves,
Unclassed religion need not be delved,
Amid a blood red sea of fear,
The tranquility is missing here,
Taunting words seldom backed,
Contain beliefs or be attacked,
Build on hopes as sea beaten coves,
Move ever closer in mind's eye,
The elders here deserve no respect,
On rain drenched nights,
The fuelled warmth of unity,
Is forever, to slip into neglect....


Microscopic as to cosmic,
Elements we are,
Catastrophic as to topic,
Fading like a star,
Edward Teller as to terror,
Surviving out of fear,
Interstellar as to velour,
Extinction hurtles near,
Futuristic as to mystic,
Boundless is our quest,
Analytic as to cynic,
Failing every test....


Poetic as expression,
Like vastness to the sea,
With murky depths of style,
An independent memory...

Rundberg as a notion,
Weathered by the rain,
Deeper than the ocean,
In an eyeless hurricane..

Anchored by its Keeper,
A shipwreck of the past,
Broken into pieces,
Hope should make it last....

Drifting as with time,
Darkened at its source,
Underlying currents,
Uncharted by its course.....



Because of the time remaining,
Like an hour glass is draining,
I am no longer straining,
To be like one of them.

My respect for them is fading,
Now I'm beyond all grading,
In this system I was made in,
To be like one of them.

The light I've seen, I'm praying,
In this game I will not play in,
No more shall I stay in,
To be like one of them...


A rose is not a rose for you,
Unless its beauty is untold,
The reflection that it leaves for you,
Is forever to unfold,
The pain and joy of love,
Is always like the rose,
A man and woman from different pasts,
Who knows?
The Rose


Sliced by razor edges,
Compassion down to nil,
Sliced by razor edges,
Until the killers had its fill.

Torn by pointed needles,
No where to escape,
Torn by pointed needles,
In this brutal bloody rape..

Gripped by Jaws of evil,
Dragged into the deep,
Gripped by jaws of evil,
To an everlasting sleep...











Do you hear the screams
of the dead and dying?
Do you feel the emotions
of the hurt and crying?
Do you see the pain
of disease and despair?
Do you tatse the bitterness
of the salted tear?
Do you realise what you've done?
I doubt it....


Born upon a palate of ingenuity,
Constructed existence,unparalleled,
Only protecting beauty, enhancing nature,
Seedless winds, Evaporated labour,
Newborn Ideas, Seemed Beyond,
Caves echoing, for those that listened,
Majorities paved until forked, tuneless,
Forgotten individuals, played on,
Theatrical poses; unanswered,
Truth sprouted life, happiness,
Angelic beings, sensed structure,
Compassion, love, child-like dreams,
Gave as destiny intended, always,
Everlasting peace, tainted, non-escapable,
Humanity had roots,
Roots eternal...


Frictionless Suitability,
Painless Humility,
Cordless Interaction,
Immutable Retraction.

Ruptured Suggestibility,
Microscopic Inability,
Deceptively Reliable,
Robustly Quantifiable.

Pessimistically Unhingable,
Arguably Unchangeable,
Paradoxically Unfortunate,
Logically Proportionate.

Openly Deceivable,
Strangely Unbelievable,
Fundamentally Unbearable,
Cleverly Transferable...


Dedicated to the children of India 2011, make a
difference donate here:

Some do,
Some don't.
Some will,
Some won't.
Some can,
Some can't.
Some shall,
Some shan't.
Some take,
Some give.
Some die,
Some live.
I do....


Blinding distance as a shimmering recourse to what is empty,
Archaic and knowing,
Breathe life myriad being,
Energy doth warp and bend to your will,
Creation remains atomic...
Calming waves, of oceans, long forgotten,
Future past all futures,
Travel long, travel short,

Map all madness as logic fails,
Destinations already transcended.
Barriers breached at source,
Possibilities are a probable cause of edgeness,
Beyond any beyond...
Ladle once from the dark boiling soup of hunger,
Beyond even this…
Timeless train tracks, stationless less one....
Beyond this..
