Here Where God Bowed To You

With Homage To You

 

You

yes you leap with stoic bounds

into scenes depicted through art’s great work

 

You

yes you step with slowing tempto

into the good graces of life measured out

 

You

yes you move with elegance metered

with a reserved lifestyle in love

 

Your eyes

they color life

with abounding love

 

Your eyes

they instill clarity

in an absorbing love

 

Your eyes

they crystallize the vision

with generous love

 

Your smile

it imbues happiness

with a joyous love

 

Your smile

it speaks innumerable volumes

with speechless love

 

Your smile

it kisses permanent beauty

with lingering laughter

 

Your nose

it smells the holy presence

with distinct pleasure

 

Your nose

it inhales life’s passions

with an eager grace

 

Your nose

it steadies the wandering mind

with a tranquil love

 

Your ears

they hear glorious melodies

with an ever eager love

 

Your ears

they bespeak of meanings forgotten

with an over-powering grace

 

Your ears

they delight in sonorous salutations

with a generous love

 

Your body

it feels the grand sensations of life

with a grateful love

 

Your body

it interacts with life wholly

with a desirous love

 

Your body

it reacts with wonder in life

with a graceful and sensuous love

 

You

yes you wander with languid step

into horizons unsought and unknown through love

 

You

yes you walk with quick step

with a fated and trusted love

 

You

yes you move with exuding grace

with an auspicious and preserving love

To Be Loved

As You Deserved

 

I call your heart out

throbbing as it is

pumping furiously

excited for the thrill

of acknoiwledgement

and of being wrong.

Yes, I call your heart out

for laying dormant when love abounds

I chastise you and your heart

for denying yourself love

that flows like air into

the lungs that support the

body’s health

 

I call your mind out

contemplating possibilities

as it is

rationalizing arguments

and formulating rebuttals

and excuses.

Yes, I call your mind out

for getting in the way of love

I ignore your witty comebacks

for retreating when you should

have lept forward

for refusing life experience

because of a possible future hurt

and more than that

I walk away due to your unwillingness

to love yourself as I

would have loved you

 

I call you out

quaking in your tennis shoes

fearful of human contact

of a real living kind

Yes, I call you out

for remaining silent

when the world wanted your song

for standing still

when love called you to dance

and much more than that

for closing up your vulnerable

and once hopeful heart

against a beautiful and noble soul

as that of the man or woman

who would have loved you as you

deserve to be loved

Here We Stand

Let Us Jump

 

He we stand

drifting

more and more apart

I cling single handedly

groping forever

towards

the always

unattainable you

 

Here we stand

floating

through waves of sheets

grabbing

for the communion

of our

amorous love

 

Here we stand

falling

gaining speed

as we plummit

towards the awakening wall

of coming disasters

always speeding

into that old

familiar ground of

heartache

 

Here we stand

looking over

the precipice

we placed along our

our path – that

darkened chasm

leveling our union

to a bewildering choice

of life with a new

inspired love or life

with the old established life

of family and friends

 

Here we stand

my choice is made

so take my hand

if you are of a like mind

and together let us jump

jump to a future not wholly

ours nor denied to us

so step up to me

and take my hand

let us jump into that

great unknown

My Soul

Lasting Warmth

My Soul
It washes upon
The shore
Of eternity
Losing
At the fringes of
Strange sights
Of evanescent
Beauty

My Soul
It reflects the light
Shining
Through infinite suns
Of your
Love expanding soul
To fill
The greater depths of
God’s heart

My Soul
It soars in higher
World’s to
Illuminate stars
Aglow
To inspire the
Warblings
Of wandering souls
To sing

My Soul
It glistens with the
Sweetness
That emanates from
A life
Filled with the love that
Embues
A heart distilled to
Pure bliss

My Soul
It swims in the deep
Where life
Abides in hardship
There where
Only the light of
Love shines
To give lasting warmth
To light.

Part Poet, Part Lover

Made Manifest

 

It is I

– part poet, part lover –

the lucky sentient boy

graced by love’s

holy presence in

this profane and earthly

life made manifest

by your sacred

love.

 

It is I

– part woman, part man –

the eternally blamed

loved by infinite life

and raised by toilsome

hardship to chisel

excellence in your

abounding love made

manifest by your blessed

life.

 

It is I

– part saint, part sinner –

the elevated worker

taught by the trials

of life to shoulder

the brunt of humanity’s

fault and failings,

the weight of your

world of frightened beauty

made manifest by your waking

thoughts.

 

It is I

– part artist, part art –

the luckless inhabitant

blessed with beautiful

sight and bound by

expanding visions to see

shifting horizons drifting

in an anxious ocean

made manifest by your

holy and grand

life.

 

It is I

– part wise, part mad –

the spontaneous lover

bestowed with fading

and fated passions

to bloom love’s only

flower made manifest

by your sacred and quaking

heart.

 

It is I

– part lover, part poet –

the lucky man

imbued by life’s holu

heart in this profound

and earthly life made

manifest by your sacred

love.

Lovely Houri

Manifested Union Of Love

 

Love is the ignition

of the sacred flame

– rebellion – that the

lovely houri of sacred vision,

the firebrand of honored sights,

bestows onto this blessed world.

Her beauty shines through

the darkest night of humanity’s

conception to shower life’s

onerous path with the tempered

and incandescent flame of love.

 

Love is the penultimate chord

of Nature’s wandering song

– that glorious hymn echoing

through all living hearts –

bringing a rising scale of

emotions and condensing

passions into a fury

of windswept tears

and emblazoned hearts

 

Love is the spirit in accord

with the laws hopeful dreams

– those unspeakable aspirations

that vanish as soon as they

conceived – that leave a terror

in the heart and a chasm in

the soul. The bridge across

which only a narrow toll

will suffice and an act of

desperate longing will

concede to ever-invoking steps

 

Love is a sacred science

– the alchemy of the heart –

that transmutes the properties

of the carriers who bring forth

the encompassing love, changing

loathsome and regrettable traits

into crystallized gems of

perfection personalized

bonding to marred souls together

to form one blessed entity of

manifested unity in love

Within This Body

Within These Walls

 

Within these walls love

lingers and is ingrained in

the beams that shelter

us and provides warmth also

Within my bones love

calcifies and holds my soul,

body and mind too

to foster the growth of love

Within the walls of

my soul love abounds always

to instill gentle

love for all life to dwell in.

A Single Step

The Path Of Love

 

With the eyes of Indra

and the hand of God

I traverse down dark

and weary paths unsought

 

With the mind of Buddha

and the heart of Christ

I walk down the forgotten path

with the help of curenderos

 

With the strength of Kali

and the conviction of John

We move steadily forward

cautious of the waiting pitfalls

 

With the grace of Francis of Asisi

and the courage of Mirabai

We hold faith for our arrival

into faith’s abode of love

 

~

 

into the heart of love

we aspire to create great acts

with the ardent passions of Rumi

and the magic of David

 

careful of our failing sight

we grapple towards the circuitous sides

with the wisdom of Solomon

and the madness of Hafiz

 

moving slower with each new step

we pensively take the room given

with the humility of Terese

and the courage of Ganesha

 

in the act of each step

we find love, my curenderos and I

with the praise of Allah

and the songs of Nature

A Hidden Journal

God’s Secret

 

I found God’s journal

as he was sleeping off

the booze we drank

– and boy can he put bottles down

I found God’s secret

while reading his thoughts

written down in ancient script

– troublesome to decipher his hand

I found God’s vice

his one weakness against

a wall of indomitable virtues

– where he likes to hide behind

I found God’s weakness

his swift and unspoken whim

a cause to keep hidden

– a differential delight in creation

I found God’s vice

his one desire to

seeking always to bask inside

– a heart of an artist true

I found God’s secret

never ready to admit the truth

for he finds it too vulnerable

– he hides behind his secure wall

I found God’s journal

late at night as he slept

taking delirious dreams too

– to sleep off a night of drinking.
