Beginning; The End

In the continual flow

of life’s spiral,

we see ourselves

reflected in the light

of cosmic ether:

glowing, pure, immortal.

Though our mortal bodies

die, there is no death.

Passing between worlds

with the light speed

of soul ~ ‘tis then we are whole.

Mortal vessel, unable

to transcend, must be

left behind, will never mend.

The beginning, is always

found at the end.

“I am very blessed to have been given the gift of poetry. To be able to weave one’s heart into a tapestry, ink on paper, is to have learned how to tap into the Universal channel of love and light.

I truly hope that this gift which I possess, which I offer unto anyone who wishes to read, touches and inspires your life in, (even if only one word), a positive and encouraging way. For if I am able to do this, even if only for one person … then my life, indeed, has not been lived in vain.”


Earth Warrior by Geoff Howard










Earth Warrior

Mother Nature rises in
her masculine form.
It has been eons since
he has heard her call.
Awakening from slumber,
he rises from the depths
of his warm bed of
earth and loam.
His voice echoes as he rises;
bearings strong and senses sharp
after so long in rest and solitude –
Tuned and balanced with
the female within.
She has called for her warrior,
and lo; he rises and
abides her request.
No sentient being, along,
can fight a struggle for
survival such as this.
With a great rumbling
his presence is known.
Her twin conscience,
her last hope for survival.
We shall bully and badger her no more
It has begun.
