O  Lady - sapphire
Amid birds and bells - hold high
Your golden thunder

(Madonna del Sasso 15/7/01)


In thrilling palms, live
Lightning carries the holy
Word down God's mountain


Thunder over Lake -
Men, fireworks, no sleep. No sleep!
Dawn storm! God's are best!

(Locarno 15/7/01 .... dawn....)


Gold Sun God, O laugh
out loud as you net the heart's
highway with free light

(Atenolol! ... 8/9/01 21h40)


Mountain Seraphim
Hymn in opalescent fire
A Holy sunset

(Menai Strait, spring 2003)


The storm of Heaven
So flooded my spring with Love
Even the Sun drowns!

(week of prayer for Christian unity 18/01/04 - 24/01/04)


Man whose skin fell off
Under the sc0urge of karma
God whose skin fell off

('the  boy whose skin fell off' CH4 25/3/04 9h00 pm)


The Passion

Beaten back across
Time raw passion bred of life
Dyes history red

Beyond the gate his
Blood spatters a rising moon
The world shatters

Sunset bloody moon
Crosses out Love, all square now
Until the next time

(March 2004)


Skinned alive, the Lamb
Imploring me beyond sobs...
I cannot save you

(29/05/06 - after dream ../05/06)



A few red letters
Weigh down millennia with
Clarifications ...

A few red letters
Of footnotes

Christmas is over -
Supermarket hot cross buns
Scent the New Year

A tear falls.
A pearl f0rms.
A prayer rises.



Five lines in the blue
At C sharp the Sunday sun
Feast with an octave

(jet-trails over Holy Trinity Ascension Sunday  23/5/04)



Whether to join in -
Murder in the Cathedral
Salve vagina

(29/05/04-10 yrs of women priests @ Durham)


Even a whisper
Rings too loud. Hushed  by Cuthbert
Our old lives steal back

(28-29/5/04 Durham Cathedral)


Only God is perfect.
Now I know  why
I never finish the wall-papering



Rosslyn in the rain
Lightning indoors, magic lace,
Beauty & breath caught



In my old habit
Sitting on warm stone to hear
The Word I gilded

(Lindisfarne Abbey 2/6/04- written 9/06/04 00h20+)


So near my old cell
Tears well for another wake
Disturbing the lake


How will Mind create
Heaven in our image without
Murdering the world?


Butchered Judas tree
Kiss goodbye to your cold crown.
Have I betrayed you...?

(pruning Forest Pansy 22/11/08)


Cybele's lion
Wounds me Once Felicia
Offered violets

(28/3/09 - after dream on 24/3 showing me past life, and Web research)


Vast lawns? Cropped heather.
A cell, not gold. Bright foxes.
God's dance in my heart

(12/04/09-big dream c.07h30 )


Trapping the Nightmare,
Naming it, I nail its rage
To Love's mighty Cross.

(20/04/09-big nightmare - Pluto Asc., etc.)


Wheel to wheel
God's fingertip from Adam


Years of ecstasies
Then you arrived and I stopped
Writing poetry
