Bliss

Maybe life is like exploring a new place
 the museums
 the shops
 the cafes
 the restaurants
 he bars
 the parks
 the mountains
 the beaches
 the attractions
 the clubs
 the spas
 the wineries
 the alleys
 the busy streets
 the tourist traps
 the obscure local dives
 the photo ops
 the accidental finds
 the fancy
 the mundane
 the well-trodden path
 the rough terrain
 the sweet
 the sour
 and the like
 the trending
 the forgotten
 the bizarre
 up
 down
 left
 and right
 the sunset
 and the morning light
 so much to see 
 and smell 
 and taste
 to take in
 to experience
 to revel in
 to grace.
 and then

 …
 your face.
 a memory of long ago
 it has always been you
 I’ve longed to
 explore.
 in
 out
 and all the way 
through.
 new vistas
 new landscapes 
 a sacred vision
 come true.

this
is
bliss.

Anchor

aimlessly floating on my own volition
winds to and fro inhale my sails
currents carry me to shores unexplored
i set my imprint in the stones
and swiftly slip away again
thirsty for the familiar ground
that shines anew each day
and shifts and moves with me...
i tire but keep searching
propelled by an 
elusive
empty
exotic
enchanting
effervescent
eternal 
pull
coming from within
that pushes me out
out of my skin
expanding
blending
merging
bursting
until
all 
my 
neatly 
sown 
seams
come undone
and i carefully put them
together
anew 
stronger
wiser
better...
then
you appear
to anchor me.


Not All Who Wander Are Lost

This came through the other day, wrote it down in a matter of three minutes, felt moved to take pictures today…

Feeling encapsulated by the deadening dullness of the limited shared reality, the wanderer crosses the threshold of imposed commonality to get lost in the vastness of the void where anything is possible. The lucrative unknown holds an elusive quality, a mystery that beckons to be explored, but never unravelled completely for its intricate secrets weave themselves into ever more complex patterns that strike with their inherent stoic simplicity. Shapes and visions blend, merge and dance into a series of processions that disappear in the blink of an eye only to re-emerge in a more-vivid-than-before kaleidoscopic formation of pure delight and fascination. The meaning is obscured by palpable presence penetrating to the core of all and revealing itself as the cradle of existence. Non-being implies being, darkness gives birth to light, quiet superimposes noise, life is swallowed by death only to burst into more life, all opposites unite and return to the origin of all things where they have always been. A spark, a thirst, a hunger rekindles the fire again and explodes into an outburst of desire to know itself. A universe is born anew. Welcome, yes, you.

Invisible Forces

There is a higher order
A calling
A thread that connects souls
And when the time comes
It beckons.
A knowing from deep within emerges
There is no choice
Decision has been made
Follow
Follow
Follow
Your heart.
Forge your way into the unknown
Creation delights in
Pure Passion.
Boldness
Rapture
Bliss.
Eternity
Since our last
Kiss.

How do you FEEL?

With touch?
With sunlight?
With tears?
Rainstorms?
Cool ocean breeze?
With music?
Alone?
With people?
Alone with people?
In shared silence?
A look
A knowing
A nod
Walking
Feet in the sand
At night
In bed
Silently?
Violently?
In broken glass?
With candlelight?
Soft kisses...
A glass of wine
In the bathtub
Water
Fire
Earth
Air
Head in the clouds
Hands in the soil
Endless sky
Roots deep down
Eyes closed
Remembering
The joy
The pain
The bliss
The sadness
This...
Is
How
I
Feel...
It
All.

Beyond

I see beyond the masks you wear.
The roles they put you in
For that’s all 
They could see and know
Surface surfers
Assuming you are one of them.
However,
Deep inside of you
You always knew.
Cognitive dissonance.
But could you truly be another?
When all reflections seemed to show the same?
Yet, it was not your true face.
You smile and laugh
To hide
The void inside.
Until it swallows you in
To realize
Who you have always been.
No longer fearing the depth
You dwell in it
And hope to see it in another.
Connect.
Knowing
Not knowing
How or why
Simply that
You
Me
And
God
That’s three
In
One.
No more blind
I see.
Shedding it all
Brilliant
Joyous
Luminous
Free.

Live In the Dream


We are God particles
Dancing
In sunlit expanses
Fields ripe with moonlight
Above the clouds
Elevated
We rise
Within the Earth
We sleep and
Remember.
Integrating all we are
Recognizing
Greeting
Connecting
Uniting
To part again
More yourself
Carrying me with you
Loving
Loving
Loving
For I am You.
One in myriads of forms
Conscious
Beathing
Alive
Getting to know
Oneself.
One
Self.
Kiss me
Hold me
Touch me.
A smile from your soul
Transcending time
Caresses mine
Obliterates space
Together,
We lie. 
The world dissolves
For we are it.
Finally
Whole
Complete.
Sweet
Dream
Sweet.


DayDream

What am I doing here?
Remind me again.
Watching the rain
The body begs for kisses
Cold coffee instead.
You know we came to dream
A new dream
The new dream.
So long searching to find you
Gathering the pieces
Of who I am.
Could have been anyone
No one satisfies.
Could be doing anything
But why?
Longing
Longing
Longing

Taking Flight


We meet
Your eyes
My eyes
Speak
Our lips 
Kiss
Our hands 
Unite
Our hearts 
Collide
It’s warm 
Inside
Blissful
Happy
Together
Until one day
It lurks upon me...
I feel it in your touch
It’s written in your gaze
A silent sentence you 
Don’t have to speak
I panic
I can’t breathe
I want out of the
Gilded cage you built for me
{A perfect one indeed
With all the comforts
Worthy of a queen}
Assuming 
I am all you need
A finished product
A perfect image
What you have been looking for
Your whole life
A manifest of a complete idea...

Faithful Love

My body remembers you from eons ago
My mind doubts it is possible
My heart speaks the truth softly
My soul yearns for yours
My being knows.
All that is You evokes all that is Me
Two essences merge as One.
In your presence, I flow
In my presence, you burn.
Together we clear the old and nourish the new
Ablaze
Our path, the path of Love
Beyond separation, into unity.
My outlines tracing yours
Your thoughts finding home in mine
Our hearts beating in the same rhythm
Us, created in Love
Led by Source
Joyously dancing in harmony
into Eternity.
Love in your eyes meets Love in my eyes
Oh Love, we came from the stars.
I am sun beams and moonlight
You are passion and poetry
Together we nurture our nature.
We sought, and we found.
We have chosen each other since before time began
Hand in hand we birth new beginnings.
Firmly found in Love
Softly surrendered to Source.
Beyond appearances and veils
Beyond light and dark
Beyond past and future
We stand, in the eternal now
Entangled as one.
Your needs, my wants.
My beauty, your reflection.
Tender and true
Fearless force
Sensual symphony
Faithful Love.

***

On the threshold of a new beginning
The old falls away
We rise above it
I create in you
You create in me
Together dissolving in one
Love we follow
Love we create
Love we are
Love it is.
