Bright Centre

Bright Centre

Of power and self-confidence
Solar plexus glowing bright yellow
Manipura the city of jewels
Holding energy in this third
Sliced by the sword
Of self-judgement and criticism
The centre of instinct
Of the digestive fire within
Open
Open
Open
Strength to move forward
Head held high in self belief.

Shine Yellow

Shine Yellow

In the deep black, blue sparkles
A reminder that it’s not all dark
Jewels hide in dim depths
Dig deeper for the glimmer
It is there beneath the surface
Yours to claim, polish and magnify
On the wings of the starling
Fly in brightness and shine
The colour of the sun
Of happiness and life

Seeing People

Seeing People

I see through your eyes
Pictures of many people
You have painted and shared
Tinted and tainted
By opinion and experience
All of them yours
I beg of you not to share
This filter you have created
For I with clear eyes and heart
Will experience and see
That which I must
And develop my own
Visual and emotional screen.

Thoughts to Reality

Thoughts to Reality

The average pencil is seven inches long, with just a half-inch eraser in case you thought optimism was dead.

Robert Brault


Swimming in the sludge of negative scenarios
Of the darkest, dread-filled possibilities
My mind asphyxiated by the putrid smog
Of these rotting detrimental thoughts
Blinded to silver linings and sunshine in the rain
Waiting for the rainbow at the end of this storm
To pull me from this quagmire of deprecation
To deliver an eternally flowing pot of gold
As I ride atop my unicorn into the sunset.

In this cynicism blooms the simple solution
Faith-filled imagination of fantastic frivolity
Belief in inconceivable, unimaginable potentiality
Of rainbows, unicorns, magic and mystery
Focal relocation from mind to body
Migration from thought to living
Disassemble and decimate the village of doom
Constructed on the nerve endings of the brain
Prevent thought eventuating into life.
