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.

Dangers

Loving Dangers

 

 

It’s a dangerous thing

this living for another,

the continual giving

and hoping they take

notice, but living

for another is a gift

in and of itself, a

knowledge that a world

has been made better

through your living.

It’s a dangerous thing.

 

It’s a dangerous thing,

letting loose the reigns

of your heart to another,

a subtle fear takes over

for a time, but great courage

and faith, with honest too, will

help to quell any such notions,

so breathe into our heart

and trust it’s inner guidance

to let loose the reigns

of your heart to you beloved.

It’s a dangerous thing.

 

It’s a dangerous thing,

this melding of two souls,

initially confusion and fear

will take hold, becoming

something more than

yourself is scary, as

growth always is, so

free yourself of your

doubting thoughts and

let your two souls flourish,

melding together to form

something stronger, more

beautiful than either of

you could have managed

on your own.

It’s a dangerous thing –

but love is worth that danger.

Life With You

The Falcon And The Poet

 

Does a falcon need to be

shown how to hunt?

Or a tear to be shed?

What about a heart to love?

 

All come from an impulse

to act towards their nature.

– so it is with me,

I act on an impulse to

love you wholly, to give

all I have for your smile.

 

Does a poet need to be

told to write his words?

Or a tree to drop it’s fruit?

What about a body to feel?

 

All come naturally and

without promptings yet

are beautiful to behold.

– so it is with me,

I come naturally and

without promptings to

always come home;

wherever you are.

On This Morning

Waking To Beauty

 

On this morning

waking to such

beauty, is a

dream realized,

a truth seized,

a day revealed,

and a mystery

grasped. On this

morning, waking

to such beauty

I breathe easier

in the knowledge

of the heart that

speaks only of love.

 

On this morning,

holding to such

pleasures is a

moment frozen

through eternity’s

scope, an empty

mind, a breath

suspended, a

beauty fulfilled.

On this morning

holding to such

pleasures, I breathe

easier knowing

that love always

surrounds us.

 

On this morning

witnessing beauty’s

breath is all eternity

held in a moment,

glories gilded in

gold, an opening

of the heart’s gate,

a flood of love. On

this morning witnessing

beauty’s breath in all

eternity, I breath

easier in this

knowledge of the

heart that speaks

only of our love.
