Sunrise 1st January

There will be a reason stated, it will be known clearly why.

There will be a new unveiling, demonstrations from on high,

There will be a revelation of all truths yet by and by.

Jars of honey turned, upended, in the brightest, clearest sky

Will make a new anointing of the hearts that never die.

There will come renewal visions in the moistening of the eye,

A reinvigorated joining, as the freed ones rise and fly,

When we recognise each other, yes, my soul mate,

You and I.

We will stand with one another, look each other in the eye,

And remark upon the wisdom learned in lifetimes now fled by.

You’ll be clothed in waves of resonance. With heartstrings you will tie

Cloths of heaven that I weave you, hemmed with joy that cannot die,

When below the Tor at Solstice we by Chalice fountains lie.

And we’ll hold each other dearly and in joy we’ll cry and cry,

For we recognise each other, oh, my soul mate,

You and I.

We will walk together slowly, as the drums and timbrels cry

And oblivious to others as the dancers pass us by.

We’ll vibrate for seven lifetimes as we touch the crystal eye,

As the music makers celebrate the passing of the lie.

For we need no other presence in the lightening of the sky

And we need no other joining than our own love,

You and I.

As we walk, the henge will open, our awareness magnify,

And the standing stones will resonate, the goddess glorify.

We will sit on thrones of dignity, and darkness pacify

And marvel at enlightenment that ends the question ‘why?’

For we join as one eternally, my soul mate,

You and I.

I have touched your soul’s vibrations, you have always been close by.

I have felt your constant presence, and on this I most rely:

I will see you, standing in the light, when next I choose to die

In this life time or the next one,

I will meet you in the sky.

  1. Finding someone you love and who loves you back is a wonderful feeling. But finding a true soulmate is an ever better feeling. We don’t meet people by accident but sometimes they are meant to cross our path for a reason. A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys and keys to fit our locks. We can be loved for who we are and not for who we’re pretending. Each unveils the best part of each other. They are someone who will make marks in our lives and will be there for us forever, no matter what. A soulmate is the one who will accept and believe in us when no one else does. And no matter what happens, we will love them and nothing could ever change that.

  2. Always nice to have a soulmate whether real or reel!
    But this poetry is beyond this realm
    It is metaphorically woven together with allusions and personifications
    Very typical of most of the poet’s work
    Worth pondering upon!
