Gaia--Not to Touch the Earth (new poem)

GAIA--Not to Touch the Earth (Poem)
by Tim Kavi

speaking messages
not heard
there is quaking
terrible shaking

ridges of trembled history
continental drifts
of worries of collapsed kingdoms

underneath changing
of postpartum birthing
memories of the way things were

before flags were planted
before urban density
throwaways of modern and postmodern

filtered the purpose
of your message
but we still try
to touch you

to touch the Earth
to know your glory
to esteem and respect
to be moved by all

that you are.
we long to respect you

before it's too late.

Remembered Space (New Poem)

Remembered Space
by Tim Kavi

lush overgrowth
showing empowering design
such wisdom
yet some say 
it's always overrated

but love grows
to meet us in every 
esteemed face
across every landscape
of doom and grace

it is everywhere
every space
and in every place

reflecting rays of light
in my remembered windows
of dreamy night
where I am struck
by the moonlit beauty
echoed in her embrace

Her many stories
are told, traversed
again and again 

a resounding crescendo
in the universal page
she is written
in the paths
of the wind

by every artist's
gardened, skillful
round shapes

My love is full of it;
I saw it in her 
gathered lace

And revealed ever
in the lit bed
of her remembered kiss

I am left wandering
the maze
of brilliant memories
across remembered space.

Long Flight of the Arrow (new poem)

Long Flight of the Arrow
by Tim Kavi

some say they
are desperately seeking
seaching like ghosts
master archeologists
among the dust
of ancient landscapes

others are explorers
of every geology
across their paths
but cannot find
the missing Shangri-la
of the utopian plateau

there are the dreamers
the poets
the undying singers
playing lived out melodies
on the shipwrecks of love
and the injustice of it all

but the long flight
of the arrow
finds them anyway
and because it is Cupid's
arrow; all those
missing arms of embrace

find their human place.

Music of the Wind (New Poem)

Music of the Wind 
by Tim Kavi

moorage of things
wafting sounds play
frequencies of existence
across the hallowed ear

sacred sounds
Nature in all living
vibrations of being 
sound like whispers

flutes of lung
heard in humans
and animal hearts
play our heartstrings as one

wavelike strings
unfold and shape
expressions of all
We are

on to sweet compositions
of instrumental choice
there's my lovely song
playing across

all manners of love.

In the Quantum New Year (new poem)

In the Quantum New Year
by Tim Kavi

the linear
exploding fading away
of time
years count for something
in creating meaning essence
of what we seek
to immortalize

but there is a timeline
of another kind
a place that seems
the geographic inspiration
of all seekers
if we could but glimpse
it's enduring surprise

for this is no Sisyphus
of disappointment
but a blinding step of faith
that beyond what is known
in the many ways to know
and choose from
is but destiny's disguise?

For some have traveled paths
less traveled, and some
many forking paths
that in the quantum
message of self defining hope
moments, each passing year
is a line we devise

only to discover
there is more richness
and happy places
that Heaven is timeless
if we but look for it
and stepped out of time
to merely recognize?

In the quantum new year
we know that time changes things
even outside it.

To the World at Christmas (New Poem)

To the World at Christmas
by Tim Kavi

Everywhere there is a longing
to let free voices sing
To enjoy the festivities
that happiness will bring

but no matter what or where
our prayers are for peace
and love in all hearts there

where you are

may the joys of a coming New Year
and the Christmas season
fulfill the prospects of joy
that is due you all

with love from poet Tim Kavi

gentle raindrops (new poem)

gentle raindrops
by tim kavi

gentle raindrops fall softly
across glistening green skin
We and Nature
heartbeats as one
in the dawning sun

steam rises from the Earth
plantings of our love everywhere
gentle shoulders slope
of what tomorrow brings
in mountains of hope

in the passion of longing
love buds anew
while songs of birds flew
among the shadowed rocks

where there is only
the whisper of our kiss
enduring forever

the stream of love
and time carries on.
