I Am Here

Poem By Tom Billsborough

"Chacun en soi et son ami vivra" Louise Labé


I am here and you are there
And you are here and I am there
As each to each the other moves
Constant as the murmuring waves
Breaking in soliloquies
Upon a silent shore,
The sea and sand together and apart
Yet always touching as you touch my heart.
For I am here and you are there
It matters not how far the where.
Each to each the love shall move
Since you are here and I am there.

Beneath the elder,

I Saw You Often

I saw you often with your head bowed low,
As if in sorrow from some awful wound,
Inflicted long ago.
And even when you smiled

Pacific Days

Washing the barrier reef, the Coral sea,
Brings fresh nutrients to the coral blooms,
Chrysanthemums in splendour
Where fishes of deep orange, blue

Love Makes The World Go Flat

Love makes the world go flat,
Sparkling seascapes sweeping out
From rolling downs of wide horizons.
Shimmering skies absorbing eyes.
