Awake

I  could hear

the universe

whispering

the truth…

calling 

my name…

 

the walls

have fallen…

 

the game

has changed…

 

love remains.

Always The Same

Anger

consumes

as it violates

again

and again…

 

always

the same…

 

remain…

 

gentle without

strong within…

 

always 

the same.

Avalanche

The grasping

and never lasting…

falling below…

knowing 

nothing…

feeling

small…

 

an avalanche

of living…

 

smothering

and recovering…

 

forgiving

all…

 

standing tall.

Dissolving

Dissolve

and let go…

 

flow…

 

under

over

and around

it all…

 

lost

yet beautifully

found…

 

free falling.

More

Some of us

are living

and giving…

 

some are taking

taking…

 

trying to fill

the bottomless

emptiness…

 

that roars…

 

and screams

for more.

The Unseen

Stranded 

here…

 

embalmed 

by life’s 

demands…

 

awakened to…

 

the unseen source

redeeming 

force…

 

eternal plan.

Holding It Close

Weighed down…

 

by their unkind

blindness

I reach out

for goodness…

 

holding it

close…

 

folding it

into my

soul.

Taking Flight

Winter’s night

came…

 

no one

could tame

the storm…

 

love was torn

taking cover…

 

love was born

rediscovered…

 

a bird

in flight…


again.

Expand

These soul expanding

changes

have been

awaiting

this

day…

 

can’t you see…

 

it’s 

your own

shadow…

 

blocking

the way.

Fragments

The wounded

fragments

of this time

and place

are laid waste

 

the emergent new

the faded old…

 

transformed

reborn.
