Recipe for removal of bitterness…

I was going to participate in the poetry month for April but I realize it takes up so much of my time, so I’m going to do it intermittently… 🙂
This is my recipe for April the first! (one day late)

recipe for bitterness

Mix in sweet gratitude and let it seep…
Take dollops
of surrender
And pour in deep…
Let presence enfold you
immersing the pain,
on a low heat of forgiveness
whisk in the remains…
of grace and mercy,
with heapfuls of love,
blended with compassion,
and using kit gloves,
sharpness will boil away, as you ladel out blessings
count them very slowly,
it may be messy…
it may take courage to let it dissolve,
bake on high and
you will evolve…

bitterness is removed
with loads of patience
serve with love
and dedication…

A spectacle of love

“… to be human
is to become visible
while carrying
what is hidden
as a gift to others…”
― David Whyte

He made a spectacle of love,
the unscathed motion
of his words
fell on longing…

And those who sought his gaze
found trajectories of
kindness
generosity,
devotion too astonishing
to pass by…

He was willing to let the world fall at his feet
but not without love,
because
without love
he was nothing!
an empty
meaningless
husk
an Earthling with no cause…

His honesty broke the canvas skies
he stood out,
though rejection wounded him
when they turned away

he became unknown…

and he sought answers
in despair
in folly,
finding mankind’s love
restrictive
flawed…

for in transitory barriers
of a broken Earth
love is too glib an expression
to pour out freely
to open,
sometimes even to believe…

You know that kind of love that remembers no wrongs
seeks not its own satisfaction,
to some
just a frail portrayal,
susceptible to stagnation…

His wait was not long

In shining vestibules
he grasped the perfection of love,
unlimited,
requiring nothing of him
but to be himself,
no need to clean up his act…

The pull was too strong
for him to resist
and he flew into belonging,
never again to be unwanted
or unloved
by those who
require absolution…

Bathed in the warm light of love his soul sung out and the energy of love transformed him,
spread him out across
the great expanse
like a shining vibrant jewel of color
and in cosmic waves of devotion
he awoke…

He was acceptable in the sight of love and his spirit eased,
for he knew all things,
and being immersed in the calming nature
of unconditional love

he became light……

“Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet confinement of your aloneness
to learn anything or anyone that does not bring you alive is too small for you.”
― David Whyte

reflections

She was the sad line, in a romantic play,
foolish enough
to press replay.
She learned the narration off by heart
shattered composition,
no work of art…

She cried in umbra,
her description frail
stashed her belongings
in deathly vales,
and shadows hid her inadequacy,
then the movement of form
set her free…

Free from limitations
from hiding away
released from torment
from feeling afraid…
unlovable
unwanted,
she was wholly adrift,
a wallflower
on a quest
to be
kissed…

Their eyes discovered the transparency of gaze,
of crowded elements,
apparent clichés!

He didn’t complete her;
he imparted strength,
in tender formations
of holy breath…

Accolades have never made her feel known,
only great love
deep in the bones!!

 

Nature’s tongue…

“Heaven is a state of mind, not a location.”
― Wayne Dyer

my own self worth

In quiet spaces where radiance shines,
intoxicating essence
is naturally
designed…

I step a little closer
and my image
becomes,
enthralled in the dialect
of Nature’s tongue…

I speak the language of this sacred Earth,
finding treasure,
in my own
self-worth…

He naturally swooned…

“So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

Dancing
in the
light
of eloquent tunes,
she caught his gaze,
and he naturally
swooned…

Elysian visions
imbued
the air,
whirling
and sighing
in charming flair…

Swept by
a stream
of delicate chords
two lovers
moved
with one accord…

And they basked in
the light of a
resonant glow,
expressing
how tenderness
overflows…

To Anna…

To my beloved godmother Anna ♡

anna

She stepped into glory
her feet off the ground,
with heavenly anthems
and joyful sounds… Her mother
Her sister
Her husband was there,
delighted by her arrival
great love everywhere…
She blinked in the radiance
not believing her eyes,
when she saw their faces
not a tear did she cry… All suffering was gone,
her form became bright
in the splendor of eternity
perfect in His sight… A magnificent human
touched by the divine
living her years out
fully alive… Always happy to see me
she had real flare,
we’d hit the town,
like millionaires…
“Maybe anchovy toast
or Cappuccinos and cake,
We’ll spoil our figures,
Oh dear, it’s too late!
Maybe try on some dresses,
I’ll help with the zip,
But oh my darling
It won’t
go over my hips…
Let’s splash out and buy some woolies treats
It won’t really matter
if we have a little cheat
You only live once
I would hear her say
Let’s enjoy the blessings
of another day… I’ll miss your magnificence
and your elegant style
your sense of humor,
and endearing smile…
Your kindness
Your generosity
Your repartee
I’ll treasure the moments
each happy memory… Go and rock heaven and enjoy the feast,
with resplendent soirees
that never cease… I know your safe in the arms of our Lord
above heavenly throngs
can you hear my applause?…

To love is to cover all wounds…

“In a gentle way, you can shake the world.”― Mahatma Gandhi

to love is to cover all wounds

To love ♡
is to cover all wounds
with the fragrance of the sweetest perfume…
Scattered on holy winds
a treasure found
in simple things
Where gratitude is overheard
in the delight of forgiving words…
Inhaled by the majestic Earth
Coalescing with her blessed mirth!
