A force of nature
Continuous flow
One direction only
The water goes
Through the ravine, rock and dirt
Washing away debris and hurt
Some man-made, some of Mother Earth
Full forge ahead the pressure is led
Til reaches the edge
That fateful ledge
Over it flows as no way to slow
Survival in essence no-one knows
Plummeting through depths
Awash with cascades
Clears up the path, the charades
One way forward
Into rivers flow
Or just to pool a stagnant blue
Swimming in the water sprays
Refreshing to some, or rain for days
Drowned, disheveled, tore apart
Floating dazed without a grasp
Waterfalls are tremendous
If witnessed from afar
Not quite so when being one you are
Constant overflow
In nature’s hands
I want to be able to use my own
To tend my own lands
Whilst you’re busy planting seeds in other people’s gardens
It’s time to…

Theatre of Life

The Writer Behind DornDryad's Blog


Theatre of Life.

The Honeymoon is over
Flown out to Sea
Up in the clouds
Where it always be
Whilst down here on Earth
Everything hurts
Stark reality
Beauty lay like diamonds in the rough
To find them, one must be tough
What if one’s not? Then what’ve got?
Head or heart, feeling shot?
Choose Life the trainspotters say
But to be blitzed just for a day
Numbed, dumbed, falsely in bliss
Like when in love seeking a kiss
Veils to cross or pull down
Final curtain calls a sound
On this theatre called life
Not Mother, Success, nor a Wife

Bodily changes
Wrapped around my head
The chrysalis my bed
Burning from the inside
No longer try to hide
Fight the fatigue
To be a new breed
Growing pains
God’s they hurt
Broken bones
Organs spurt
Shakes of fury
Nerves of glory
To describe it all?
That’s another story!
Unwrapping the trappings
Whilst hearing the echoes
Echoes of them
Those shadows
Voices, so dark
Feelings so stark
Uncomfortable lark
Left bitten as from a shark
Even love becomes hard work
When pupa inside behaves a jerk
Unravel more, to loosen the ties
Now it’s harder to close my eyes
Contentment has left, now bereft
As transformation begins
I must transform
Release the old, familiar scorn
Virginal I be, innocently
God’s, it’s killing me
I must transform
Be reborn

Like Icarus I Burn

Like Icarus I Burn

©2017. Dorn Simon


Magnetism adds such flair

As I fly through the air

With wings given to me there

From the Angel such beauty fair

The Sun it warms me so

Alluring and drawing a glow

Never fails to close on in

Where the chemistry begins

Pleasure in fury

Love so unruly

Complete like never before

It is everything and so much more

Then like Icarus I fly too close

I get burnt like toast

Scorched inside out

Utterly over roast

You see I meet with Hubris

All behaviours I defy

Lived them in darkness

The light now I refuse to deny

Perhaps I mimic Phaethon

In some esoteric scene

A Myth beyond my control

As left in God’s Hands

Shining One

This I know

As assigned this to he


I call on the Elements to aid my balance

As to not burn out this…

Wheel of Fortune ~ Lucky Me

Wheel of Fortune ~ Lucky Me


The Wheel has turned a different way

Such a contrast to that old sway

Bringing forth the steps needed

Recognising, they now heeded

Walking onward first time in ever

It’s like I found my personal lever

To walk, to pause, to review, to draw

From all those elements and issues before

I awoke one day happy to say

I am so Lucky, yes Lucky today

For the lessons I’m learning

From whence they came

The life I am walking

That mindset new frame

No longer construct

Free to Be

Who I am, and always could Be

I am Loved, therefore Lucky

I am Love, therefore Lucky

I am IN love, therefore Lucky

I am Alive, therefore Lucky

I appreciate the pain before

As without it I couldn’t walk

The given steps taken

Allowing me to talk

Through my Journey

Fool’s Journey of Me

Embrace the Light ~ Bask in Sol

The Writer Behind DornDryad's Blog


Embrace the Light, Bask in Sol

Sol Invictus
Unconquered Sun
Burned so brightly
Infusing One
Opened my eyes
Light did pierce
Reflecting prisms, so fierce
So much holy given light
Set my world in fright
Defenses kicked in
Sabotage did begin
From sheltered dark
To sudden spark
All Hail
The broken shards
All one could see
When reflecting in thee
Was cracks yet to be sealed
The hurts not yet healed
That shining Sun
Most unconquorable One
Lit the Torch
Whence I got scorched
Such beauty and gift
Yes brought huge shift
Of which I should bask
In healing light
Release the fright
Let go of pain
Embrace the Sun
Most loving One
With Open Arms
Let Love Reign

Pushing Boundaries

The Writer Behind DornDryad's Blog


Pushing boundaries just like a kid

Guilty of this I must admit

The inner hurt child still exists

Now I know I can hug her a kiss

Time to heal and grow out of pain

These are the things that sadly remained

Opened my eyes by shining bright light

Came to unearth my demons and plight

The work is on, it’s only just

How else can love be given a chance

To grow, to bloom to be adult soon

The only way to unity or groom

I give my thanks in all accounts

For the love I found was in large amounts

Whether it stay or does be lost

Perhaps if fleeting, was worth the cost
