The Ticklish Tickle

Poem By Kenneth Maswabi

Consciousness laid down the tools for laughter
Under the surface of our being
Planting all sorts of buttons
To undress the joy within
It's not a coincidence
Or a wayward path of evolution
It's the fullness of the spirit within
Ever ready to be submerged in laughter
The spirit awaits the touch of another being
Delicate fingers are required
To awaken the entire fabric of consciousness
To release the droplets of ecstasy
Throwing us into a wonderful moment
The ticklish tickle is not an anomaly on the face of life
It's the pulsating sense of joy
That was planted into the fibres of our being
To give us a taste of eternity
In laughter we find ourselves liberated
Under the spell of freedom
We find ourselves inside the bowl of happiness
It's during times like these
When laughter is a true balm
That soothes our inner being
Renewing our spirit
Refreshing our minds
We are spiritual beings
Laughter is our way of freeing our souls
From the entanglements of life
Let's find time to laugh

Long Distance Love

dear beloved
time flies unheeded
our days apart stretched
our love tormented

Fear Is A Brutal Foe

Fear is a battalion of mercenary chemicals
Capable of incapacitating even the most hardened of individuals
In the absence of faith, hope, Love and sometimes courage
Fear is stealthily deployed to incinerate the mind, body and spirit


Born out of joy
Jovial moments are captured
By the wavering laughter
Bursting out of a happy heart


the bold eagle
flying far above your head
in times of peace
masquerading as a dove

A New Humanity

Deep inside the river of consciousness
Beautiful pearls are being created
Beyond the imagination of men (and women)
Life is being re-configured and refined

True Love

It is not the heart
That waits for your Love
It is the whole of eternity
Always ready to welcome you
