Lessons

The Coming Storm

 

The world abounds

with lessons for the soul

– a foreboding sky

with a silver sheen

or a butterfly showing

color before the storm

– a cooling summer shower

or a hard day’s labor

in a staunch humidity

– the winds of change

blowing you on your way

or perhaps you stand your

full of pride, refusing to flow.

The soul delights in

these and other lessons

that this world abounds with.

Effulgence

Our Shared Life

 

Your effulgence spreads

it’s inner worth to this world

– rousing sleeping hearts

to live another day – to

sing it a holy

song, to become a witness

to the world’s sacred beauty.

 

Your effulgence spreads

over t my world giving

my soul your sacred

breath, revitalizing the

life lived with your love.

A presence divine engulfs

this soul, manifesting love.

 

Your effulgence spreads

magnificent color in

this windswept spirit,

tempting life to swell in the

sanctuary of

our soul’s abode where love reigns

supreme throughout our shared life.

A Grand Reflection

The Valley Of The Veil

 

The sacred will come

to you from the inside, like

a reflection of

a mirror – it can only

be witnessed when your

eyes are completely open

and the mind ceases it’s play.

 

Love will come to you

as the breath enters the lungs,

naturally without

any effort on your part –

it flows in and out

permeating this world with

a gentle magnificence.

 

In the valley of

the veil, life enters into

the mystical night

elevating the breathing

heart into the sky streams where

spirits soar with the

gilded wings of love, sharing

space with the sacred in life.

In Our Souls

A Place Within

 

There is a place

deep within my soul

where things unknown

and acts unexpressed

live and I, I had

not the courage to

enter but a step.

Those pent up desires

and latent passions I

dare not face, no

never to face but

worse still, not to see.

There is a place

deep within my soul

I feared to go until

you gave me your light.

 

There is a place

deep within my soul

where discouraging

truths and false

ambitions live and I,

I found my comfort

there. With each step,

each breath, my faltering

truth seeded and rooted

itself deep into my

ego until I knew

nothing but that truth

– that I could never

be good enough –

There is a place

deep within my soul

I completely lived

until your light

burned away

those false truths.

 

There is a place

deep within my soul

where I now seek,

a place of light and

love, of family and

home. I find my

comfort and peace there.

Taking each moment

as it comes with

intention to spend

that moment with

love, I know the

past has shaped me

but is not longer needed,

as the future presents

goals that may be

achieved but also

may not. There is a place

deep within my soul

I now seek with

the wisdom of

your sacred heart.

You Came To Me

A Divine Love

 

You came to me as

a gentle storm, restoring

my peace, nurturing

life with your falling waters

and for that I give

you all I have, all that I

am, and all that I shall be.

 

You came to me as

a cooling wind on

the runner’s face, bringing sweet

relief from the heat

of the day and the body;

you ease all actions

with your loving touch only

to bring a greater action.

 

You came to me as

the words to a poet’s pen,

I know not from where,

nor how, nor why you came here;

but I am thankful

for you express me better

than I could ever hope to.

 

You came to me as

the beloved moves towards the

lover, tempting fates

with latent desires and

I, I came to follow

my heart as your love flowed through

bringing me peace. I love you.

 

You came to me as

a siren to a sailor,

drawing me to you

with a lurid song and a

mysterious glance;

speaking riddles as a truth

to reveal a divine love.

Love Breathes Through Us

Home

 

A sense of home

is born of a memory,

lapsing time and space

towards a known comfort

in a new place.

 

A sense of home

lingers in the mind

of our hearts, being

made manifest by

an open vulnerability.

 

A sense of home

is newly found when

an old home fades

with memory’s yellowing

veil and experience

shapes you anew.

 

A sense of home

is lived eternally

whenever lives are

shared, trust is

joined and love

breathes through us.

An Accelerated Heart

Inheritance

 

We, the people

of an accelerated

heart find love

wherever we

may walk, over

here or definitely

over there, we take

this love with us

always to elsewhere,

breathing as we go.

 

We, the poeple

of an accelerated

heart have learned

that our name is

the future we seek

to live, that the

virtues we hold to

are constantly

lived to the fullest

imperfection possible.

 

We, the people

of an accelerated

heart have come

to know a certain

wisdom of the soul,

that our great

inheritance is not

that of money or

possessions, but

that of love and

the giving rather

than the receiving

of it most.

 

We, the people

of an accelerated

heart give love

wherever we may

roam, breathing it

in from the our

surroundings and

then releasing it

to all we meet on

this path of love,

this path of life.
