    Song of the Waves
    Original Poem by CCPoetryNow.

    Only the waves
    With all their messages
    Flow in calmness,
    Calmness in which we throw
    All turmoil,
    Wave upon wave is cast
    Helpless into a depth of calm.

    As our motion
    Splinters the helm
    Helpless on granite rock
    So our turmoil, our restlessness
    Our business
    Our fixed time consciousness
    Splinters before us.

    How vast is our calm
    Accepting, enveloping, consuming
    And still we flow,
    Silent, open, a perfect mirror
    Where we see all mysteries
    Where we see only Self,
    Our complexity of relation
    Mingling, co-mingling as one.

    What words can we place
    On such mystery?
    What force can ruffle
    Our depths?
    Holder of secrets
    Reveal to us our song
    Our mystery we would know
    Our song we sing.

    Even when our storm
    Breaks with all force
    Our heart is calm,
    Our heart is constant.
    We see beneath the depths of rage,
    Of sorrow
    Our smile, our laughter
    Free of pretence.

    We know the illusion of passing
    Ferocity, of endless forms
    Moving ceaselessly forward
    Sifting and sorting surfaces.

    In storm , in still
    We watch our activity
    Swimming within and around us.
    How can we say farewell?

    Waves flowing shores ever present
    Knowing no beginning no end
    One generation after another
    Rising, falling
    All with changing appearances
    All inseperably linked.

    Song of the waves
    Incessantly sounding
    Saturates sea, earth and sky
    Unfathomed , in
    Light of inner sun
    We plumb all hidden depths.
    Our voice,
    As the voice of many waters
    Roars throughout all.

    Waves transcending self
    We sail your shores and find
    We are just where we are
    Here, everywhere
    Paradoxically nowhere
    We are all, in all
    Roundabout all.

    Bathed in wisdom, in joy
    We have nowhere to seek
    Having always already arrived
    One with infinite sea.

    Ocean of light, life, of love
    You have become me.

    Sea Voyage

    Original Poem
    by
    CCPoetryNow

    from shadow ...
    we merge with ocean light
    waves of day
    flow through us

    Together at helm
    salt-springs wash us down
    ocean droplets
    dance, race and fall

    like scattered pearls
    spectral worlds
    spray brighter showers
    across our face

    We rise and fall
    in rhythms of the sea
    the touch of hands
    steady ... yet reckless
    as the past trails behind
    mist-like
    in wake of distant memory

    Our dream that was
    is ...
    always has been
    always will be

    Though our sun may pass
    through thickened clouds
    a bright smile
    in stillness ... beyond time
    warms us now.

  5. We originally published this poem on YouTube following requests from some of our friends for a 'darker' poem that considers some of the challenges we may face in body - mind - spirit, individually and collectively, as humanity living and caring for our planet and each other today.

    Original Poem : "We Hear the Cries - We Feel the Tears" : CCPoetryNow 2013
    Original Video : CCPoetryNow 2013 with thanks to CCRelaxationNow for the harbor scene.
    Original Music : CCPoetryNow 2013

    We Hear the Cries - We Feel the Tears

    At night in the quiet hours
    when the moon is full in the sky
    when the moons light pleases me

    We hear the cries
    We feel the tears

    flowing like rivers
    cross weary earth

    We see the sorrow, the rage
    the seeming injustice of it all
    flow, flowing ... into an angry sea
    a wild unrest.

    When the moon speaks to me of peace

    We see the conflict, hear the wars
    feel each revolution and resistance rage
    rising, falling, rising.

    We see within -
    despite the cries
    despite the tears

    that selfishness, greed
    - insidious -
    seems to flourish
    like knot-weed,
    choking and sucking
    the moons gentle light.

    Comfort can seem so far
    like far-away clouds ...
    breaking

    Happiness can seem a distant place
    Joy a fleeting pleasure.

    How generous the moon is
    magnanimous its soothing light

    and yet, within its rays
    we see
    deep sadness holding dreams
    deep sadness, clinging on
    beyond each pang of death

    Anguish climbs each height
    calls each heaven

    faith falters
    love bewilders ...
    is seemingly misunderstood,
    as intention and hope, heroic
    grasp at the reins
    of a fiery chariot.

    All knowing, now gives rise
    to a vast unknowable
    insecurity - in its wisdom -
    troubles many hearts

    money turns to dust
    economies falter and fall
    politic shudders
    the people rage

    We descry the zeitgeist of our times
    when make-believe says, all is O.K.

    We hear the cries
    We feel the tears

    as hunger drives its victim wild
    life-force drains from veins
    and the only comfort, is sleep.

    Fear troubles many hearts
    as the elements mirror our pain

    planet earth cries-out through poisoned clouds
    as the elements engulf with sorrow ... and shame.

    Wild-life declines,
    cold winds whirl, heaving floods
    hurricanes blast
    concrete earth quakes

    skin cracks with frosted barren land
    dries and shrinks with desert heat
    sweats and burns with fever.

    At night in the quiet hours
    when the moon has waned into dark
    we feel our love ...
    that even emanates from shadows

    when birth calls to death
    when death calls to birth
    when each ticking clock
    sounds no more

    We feel the fears
    We hear the cries
    and in hearing,
    watch from a haze of tears

    as souls, sometimes fragmented
    take-flight
    seeking brighter days

    Black of night whispers
    all shadowy hearts release

    Hopelessness like a plague
    for many seems real

    Empathy ...
    often appears silent.

    We peer into the light of dark
    We peer into the grave
    We feel cremations fire

    Pain and sorrow lie here
    and with upwelling peace
    rest in silence sleep.

    At night in the quiet hours
    when the moons waxing and waning
    pleases me
    there is joy in the cycles of birth and death

    as a vast cosmos opens up
    utopias collapse and fall
    and now ... beyond all illusive night

    we are but specks of dust
    floating in kind and gentle light

    where all that is, is seen
    where all that is not, fuels our mystery

    where tiny earth shines transformed

    transformed are the cries
    the tears
    the fears

    Here ... is where
    universes gather together

    where innumerable inhabitants
    splendid in oneness
    and the wonder of diversity

    perpetually celebrate
