The Four Gifts of Breath

Nature’s Giving

 

The winds have given

life a sacred gift, the eyes

of the bluest winds,

and with this giving, we who

live, receive the rite

of the holy breaths, so take

measure of your breath and live.

 

The sturdy earth has

given life a holy gift,

the heart of this green,

green world; the sacred presence

that distills the breath

through our practice of breathing

wholly, this the breath of love.

 

The spacious seas have

written the clearest truth through

it’s most sacred gift;

the bestowal of the sea’s

breathing, the ocean’s

sacred breath never ceasing

to give life a calming love.

 

The luminous skies

have given a sacred host,

the boons of the breath;

with each inhale light and life

awaken, and with each

exhale a darkness descends;

find the balance of breath’s life.

A Sacred Morning

A Morning of Gifts

 

Upon waking, I

was given a holy gift,

breathing fully to receive

this gift, the movement of

the eternal fire, that ignition

of the reddest fire. Forever

burning a salvation into

the heart of life, so breathe

in that smoke and live that Love.

 

Upon waking, I

was given a blessed rite,

moving my body to receive

this gift, the emotions of

the deep earth diggers, that

heart of the green, green

Earth. Allowing me to feel

the nurturing passions of

growth to live in Love.

 

Upon waking, I

was given a sacred gift,

opening my eyes

to receive this rite,

the vision of the treetop

flyers, those eyes of

the bluest winds. So, I

breathe deep and see truth:

That life lives  in Love.

The Song Of Love

A Cosmic Song

 

Look up at the sky-

what do you see?

what do you hear?

Look up at night and

tell me for the language

of art is celestial in

origin and can only be

understood by the chosen

who can see and hear

beyond the greater beyond.

 

Those planets – all of them –

they move with a defined grace

making their music as they

dance through the sky. Do you

hear it, can you see it? Life

– all of life – makes their music

as they dance through movements,

whales sing as they swim, monkeys

call as they swing, people talk as

they walk, and moles cry out as they

scurry underground. Can you hear

it, can you see it? Even the trees and

plant life sing out through the winds;

open your ears and listen with you

hearts, surely you must hear this

plaintive song that stirs every heart.

 

This individualistic and yet

collective song is going on

all around us, through us, and

with us. The stars and planets

sing as they move the same

song life on earth sings, and it

lies on the air of hope that we

listen with our hearts to hear

this divine song ever singing of

love, and that we too, we too

shall sing our parts fully aware.

Two Senses

To Listen And To Feel

 

Listen.

Can you hear it?

* that chorus of

silent echoes,

whispering through

the winds that speak of

the cloistering of

snowflakes and the

chill in the air which

holds to a closeness

of our celestial souls.

 

Touch.

Can you feel it?

* that sweet surrender

of the heart which

speaks of the crispness

in the air, forever

bringing a pristine

beauty to the hearts

of sacred love

binding our love

to this sacred moment.

Speaking Winds

Wind’s Truth

 

The wind speaks

in sing-song breathes

luring an audible

truth through my soul:

the natural state of life

lies in fluidity, the grace

of flow. So take this breath,

this one precious breath

and release it, release to

receive. Be like me, move

with the flow of spirit always

releasing to always receive.

That wind speaks in a

melodic way, tempting

the poets words to flow

into meaning, and from

meaning to sacredness.

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.

Day 261 – Come To Be True

Heart Of The Green Earth

 

Come and tread the ceaseless

ocean of celestial vibrations,

feeling all around you the

entire universe touching

your infinite beauty and

with the eyes of the blue

wind you shall look out to

see your vast magnitude

reflected back onto you

through your own eyes that

shade the bluest wind from

the drying stars of radiant light.

 

Come and sing the eternal

song of the mighty majestic,

striking deep within the seems

of the lasting soul, always feeling

the enlightening magnitude of

your sacred appointment in this

dynamic universe as you take

delight in the surrounding

darkness, for that is where the

heart of the green earth lies forever

singing love’s song – through creation –

with the last long stars held in space.

 

Come to sound the clarion bells

held aloft of your windswept soul

singing in ever pure tones the muted

words you long to hear with your

heart, La elaha ill’ Allah, taking the

fragrance of those words into the

cleansing breath of the purple

lavender forever taking that

sacred breath into your native

moments forever roaming the

world seeking vulnerable hearts

and expressive acts of flowing love.

Day 78 – A Shuttering Sigh

Mornings Wake

A shuttering sigh

in morning’s wake

inspires the heart

a love to make

rousing nearly

to find a naked heart

tempts the wandering

life, creation’s art

gazing loudly at

the holy insipid sight

gains momentums

sacred rite

and to inspire the heart

a love doth make

always a shuttering sigh

shows in morning’s wake
