Dance

“We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

dance to the resonance

she danced to the resonance
of whispering trees,
cradled by the taste
of invigorating breeze

the swirl and rhythm
of what hope should mean,
intoxicated silence
in zero gravity

euphoric tempo summoned her
breath,
and in stillness of mind
she lived her strength

Nature’s sweet gifts

“In one drop of water are found all the secrets of all the oceans; in one aspect of You are found all the aspects of existence.”
― Kahlil Gibran

washed in glory

Immersed in magnificence,
I’m transcended to light,
in reservoirs of renewal
restoring my sight!

Transforming moments
eternally exist,
in cosmic reflections
of Nature’s sweet gifts!

Counted among the stars!

“Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.”
― Jalaluddin Mevlana Rumi

transcendent

Who are we among the throng of
main stream life,
but fragmented images
on instagram,
obscure voices on twitter,
trying to be heard above the din
of mediocrity!
To never stop hoping,
even in the
maelstrom of media frenzy,
that justice and peace
will cry aloud!

But are we merely snapshots of ourselves,
set in timeless motion,
with smiles that mask our insignificance?

We yearn to be known,
to be loved,
and deep beneath our imperfections
we feel the breath that gives us life.
Our souls quake
at these fabrications!

In the silent womb of longing,
we realize
that we are counted among the stars!

Though,
in self-obsessed boulevards
of malcontent,
we cannot always see beyond the indulgence
of worldly wants!
Glittery tinsel that won’t
absorb the pain
for long!

Yet He who has counted
every hair on our heads,
and perceives our thoughts
from afar,
also knows our rising
and our falling.

And underneath this tiresome ache
of insignificance,
we find ourselves one with all that is,
bright lights
in a mystical Universe.

We must rise above the tempest
of hatred and violence
that threatens our planet,
and beckon each soul
to join us,
and be saturated
in grace and love.
We are transcendent Earthlings
attempting to transfigure
the trajectory of
destruction!

The storm

“Storms make trees take deeper roots.”
― Dolly Parton

storm at sea

grey clouds assemble
creating a sound,
of applauding movement
declared out loud!

streaks of brightness
light up the skies,
radiant atmosphere
of earth baptized!

sighing gently
the land get drenched,
in life-giving waters
heaven sent!

overflowing reservoirs
tumble down,
streams of abundance
nourish our ground.

some Earthlings scatter
above the squall,
others partake
in playful free fall!

Silken waves

‘Behind your image, below your words, above your thoughts, the silence of another world waits.”
― John O’DonohueAnam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom

cosmic winds

perceptions reflect
indecipherable utterances,
and tongues lament,
of stories minds make up!

there’s more to this than words
dare declare.
a universe full of resonance
and liquid visions
revealed!

another world exists where fireflies
light the darkness,
and cosmic winds bring silken waves
to sooth the maladies,
that time once bore!

behind brave eyes,
awakened memories dream
in vivid tones,
and discern the love
that brought us here,
to just this place!

where multitudes have groaned
in surrendered animations,
to minds that
form no words!

Pathways

“So at the end of this day, we give thanks
for being betrothed to the unknown.”
― John O’Donohue

pathways

when words elude me
and images fade,
i find my shelter,
beyond the charade!

in quiet surrender
under benevolent sun,
preconceptions unravel
to notions undone!

in this place unknown
grace shows the way,
pathway to transcendence,
wordless bouquets!
