Things that go bump in the night!

It is 2 am…
I’m not asleep!
I hear an echo,
the floor boards
creak…
Footsteps
coming
down the hall,
I lie frozen,
afraid
to call…..
I strain my ears
to hear a sound,
late at night,
shadows resound…
In pitch dark,
the moon
is gone…
Sleepless imaginings
I feel alarm..
It’s getting closer,
I feel
a presence..
visitations
of a
murky menace….
Just before
I rise from the bed,
sounds of purring
near my head!
It’s the
CAT
cuddling close!
Relieved…
I fall back
into a doze…
I dream of silhouettes and flying things
and before I know it
the alarm clock rings…

The river of Life

“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.”
Jalaluddin Rumi

river 4
The river of life flows abundantly,
dazzling my eyes.
Cascading through my interior,
springs in me arise.
I touch the surface perceptively,
and see my reflection in You.
The transparent shades of majesty,
an irresistible hue.
Streams of living water permeates,
the confluences of my mind.
I let go of all obsessing
and in grace I become enshrined.
As I plunge into sacred moments,
I’m immersed in love’s allure.
Allowing the  river to take me
so that fear becomes obscure.
It fills my empty spaces,
there is no beginning and no end.
A mysterious force of nature,
allowing me to transcend.

Little Birdie tales

“Birds were created to record everything. They were not designed just to be beautiful jewels in the sky, but to serve as the eyes of heaven.”
Suzy Kassem
robin
A little robin traversed my path of life
with a wordless message,
a look in his eyes.
Mesmerized by his beauty,
something beyond this earth,
a euphony of the morning,
he sang for all his worth!
I think he came to tell me that
Heaven can be found,
in life’s simple pleasures,
just to keep a look around!

Darkness Scatters

“I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being!”
Hafiz of Shiraz

darkness scattersThe joy of daybreak
when somber souls soar free,
from dark entrapment
in glorious reveries.

The gannets circle
above tempestuous waves.
Deep blue colliding
with gentle gossamer rays.

Soft zephyrs whisper
in rose colored entities.
Frenzied seagulls gather,
like vain celebrities.

When darkness scatters
and credence comes to life.
Echoes of liberation,
shorelines of delight.

Love is stronger than death

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted!”

love still exists
A cruel expanse beckons
the silent mourner.
Stars have lost their glimmer
and the moon is out of reach.
Within a mind adrift,
beneath despair,
devouring waves gather.
Dreams swallowed whole
by ghostly darkness,
magnify the pain.
Empty hallways groan in anguish.
Bereaved souls
caught up in fierce
whirlwinds of affliction.
They are one with what can never be,
grief has spilled their tears
and gobbled their tomorrows.
A harmony of presence has escaped
into shadowy forms
of wickedness and malice.
Souls who have no acquaintance
with destiny
drift across the heartbreak,
wanderers in a bleak
and hopeless Universe.
In their loneliness they are consumed by waking.
But sleep is death defied.
Suffering takes its toll
on wounded hearts
gripped by fear.
The stench of hatred is
loud and intense.
Praise brings them back from the brink
of the abyss
into the resonance of living.
as songs of remembrance
ring out across eternity.
Even in a place of deep and unnatural darkness
when life evanesces,
Love still exists……
