Out of my bones and flesh
these words unauthored

a flood that rises from within
without rhyme nor reason

knowing not the source
of my thoughts and feelings

nor possessing the titles
to my deeds nor my dreams

as much a mystery to me
as to the reader casual or not

we create our own mythologies
and spend our lives

impersonating ourselves
counting the roses in our gardens

yet weary of daisy and dandelion
only in love do we find completeness

when we can find it : so much
judged by shallow appearances

but love truly is the acid test
in which selflessness is dipped

into the heart’s solution
life’s true colours felt in a beat

John Lyons
