Bent towards the light…

And so may a slow
wind work these words
of love around you,
an invisible cloak
to mind your life.

the words have softened

The words have softened
and mists have dispersed,
I finally believe that I am not cursed!

God’s love stretches further than my reach,
in the wilderness of heartbreak,
despair gets released…

And I’ve spilled brutal pain all over this page,
illegible scribbles,
my grief assuaged…
I can’t say I’ll never fall
into the abyss,
or even that unrelenting hurt won’t persist…

But somehow I know that life will go on,
I’m bent
towards the light
can you hear my song?

Our very existence…

“Love is not an emotion, it’s your very existence!”
― Rumi

half light

in ethereal light
she sensed
undiluted lines of love…

no thought
separated
her form.

hearts
beat
in rhythm
with tenderness
and devotion…
she held,
irresistible nuances
of tone…

fearless
affection,
enhanced awareness
of the sanctity of love,
and she was drenched
in loving kindness,
whispered
and made believable,
by unconfined
favor…

in diaphanous light,  she touched
breath
like raindrops,
and the fluency of waves
reflected
fond expression…

in illuminating light, she believed she was one
with the cosmic dance,
a soul’s existence
in every sigh,
saturated
by the constancy of being…

in immortal light….she became love……

 

Love flows…

“I believe in the sun
even when it is not shining
And I believe in love,
even when there’s no one there.
And I believe in God,
even when he is silent”
-Unknown

love celebration2

Blossoms adorn wedding days,
in allegories of affection,
as a self-confessed flower child
I’ve nurtured
kind connections…

And when,
he changed worlds, flowers broke my fall
loving gestures of empathy,
embellishments of a squall…

Even if you locked me away,
and I couldn’t
see the stars
I would unearth my repository,
brimming
with fond memoirs…

Love flows over constant paths
and through eternal realms,
where oceans swell
and forests breathe
like a nimble gazelle…

 

Bask in Creation…

“Breathe it all in, Love it all out!”
― Mary Oliver

celebration of love 2

Bask in creation,
setting-aside worldly views,
let your feelings bristle
in celebration
of the news…
that nature is buzzing and festivity’s in the air,
birds are harmonizing,
good tidings are everywhere…

There’s joy in belonging to light-filled souls
abide in each moment,
loose your hands from the controls,
and pour out your countenance onto the fragrant earth,
transcending discontent,
just love for all you’re worth!!

In soft candlelight…

“Let there be spaces in your togetherness,
and let the winds of the heavens dance between you”
― Khalil Gibran, The Prophet

celebration of love

In soft candlelight
imaginations
glimmer
and sparks of love
dance
in the contours
where separation
and breath
converge
in quiet celebration… The magical glow
of deep affection
ignites
warm sensations
of tenderness,
with spaces
between
eloquent whispers
of love
and the
smoldering
luminescence
of kindling…

Spacious hearts…

“In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.”
― Gautama Buddha

spacious heart


As we gaze deeply into the hollow of spacious hearts
and quaff the nectar
of gratitude
kindness
and compassion…

Awakened at the center of love
and grace,
being wholly steeped
in surrender…

We are safely
enclosed
in the essence of
existence,
immersed in the gentle flow
and vibration
of Earth…

partakers of the present moment
more than our physical bodies…
