Concession

Within the darkness of my heart
I heed the words, whispered
So lightly, so quietly-
Calming, and stopping and deep;
Expanding into green and blue
My eyes wander through folds
Of time and space
Searching for those answers
That elude the waking self..
Would that I could lose myself
To the changing tides, rolling in and out;
To the spring wind, releasing hidden flowers;
To the darkness that could take me
Elevate me, joining me to divine..
Such that i am, mortal yet, in this life
I linger just on the edges of this divide
Hungry for concession

seas

The door opened quietly
And my breath entered through it
Softly, deeply, healing-
Searching the depths of my soul
For the wisdom that lies in every cell,
And floating within the golden dawn
My heart pumps blown kisses
To every part of me
Peace flows through my sails
As I wander these unconscious seas

Inner Child

Smiling so big, so bright
My love returned to me
From the darkest corners
Dusty and hopeless
She emerged, frightened
Confused, unsure
And I held her hand as she healed
From the pain
And she joined me at my throne
In my temple
Beside my heart
Smiling now, she giggles
I can hear her footfalls echo
With laughter
The return of me! How blessed is
My heart, my soul, my very being?
For her return signals an end to night

outside

situations and expectations
knock at the door of my energy-
though willing to love,
my heart needs space to breathe;
so though I hear the tap, tap, tapping,
the feelings of disappointment,
the lingering sobs that stop the night air,
I cannot let you in just now
for I am spinning, circling my own soul
for answers that only silence can provide…
with unconditional love, i leave you outside
just for a little longer
as i merge over and over
with my own heart

singing

Silent darkness wrapped her arms
Around me this morning
Calm, peace entered through my ears
My eyes, my nose
Until all that was left of me was nothing
And I swam in this darkness, like a star
In the night sky… the only light in my
Vast expanse
And I wanted to remain longer, floating,
So quietly, bobbing in and out of waves
Vanishing and reappearing
But life called me back home
And I had to go, as the sun crested
Horizon’s soft line, and birds began their
Singing

haze

lonesome voices are calling
from the clouds, the wind, the birds
such sad melodies of days, passed,
of time once fresh, now dust and ash-
these songs, lingering upon the folds
of time, echoing through grids of light,
oh, lonely and lonesome me! I wait for
the return of the divine, the blending of
soul and eternity.

I am but a traveler, waiting for my train…
the voices, so far off, are but a memory now..
present eyes, caught in illusion’ shade,
wait for this mind to clear the haze

Secrets

The morning whispered softly
In my ear, of possibility
And of pain
She showed me the rising sun
Luminous and radiant
Covered by clouds of rain
And thunder
Behind darkness remains still
The light
Behind claps of thunder
Are songbirds singing
And children laughing so innocently
There’s nothing that cannot be turned
Within this mind, time is eternally
Shifting, and with it- all light and dark
Blend into one-
Experience is but a word, to cover
Wisdom’s soft secrets
