Rescued…

“You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand”
― Hillsong United

oceans

Sometimes I wallow,
wallow in pain,
in bottomless oceans
only the brave remain…

wounds widen, the hemorrhage is intense
I sink with the agony
of a rapid descent…
Crushed by a deluge
devoured by despair,
I struggle for breath, emptied of prayer…

With all strength depleted,
my body is weak,
in the consciousness of suffering,
its peace I seek…

Descending into journeys
of unraveled truth,
freed from attachments
in surrender
I conclude…

That I’m awoken by the crashing of unobstructed pain,
when flash-floods drown me
in bleak domains…

It’s under these waters,
that I see a faint glow,
and towards mercy, my spirit overflows…
Radiance dresses me
with benevolent care,
out of my body, I become aware…
of the courageous rescue
of my true self,
deep in dark oceans where the Divine dwells…

Twilight…

sunsetCandy floss streaks
smudge the skies
whimsical feelings realized… in twilight gatherings
that can’t be spoiled
buoyant breath colors the void 
and visions of loveliness
overflows,
in endless trails of blushing tones…

the skies kissed goodnight
in a spectacular lullaby…

Connections…

“Invisible threads are the strongest ties.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

they move together

they move together like liquid air
assuaging grief
with soulful prayer,
relating in symphonies,
echoing love’s divinity…
connections,
soul ties,
covenants undisguised…
shifting with the cosmic flow,
merging into
a radiant glow…
consciousness survives,
in memories
immortalized…
cemented by sacred breath
never parted
not even in death…

The translucency of Eternity…

“in a world full of temporary things
you are a perpetual feeling.”
― Sanober Khan

born for a time like this

I touch your skin
and it’s as if I am you…
Our essence
spread out,
mingled
with the delicious memories, we’ve lived together,
as well as the terrible sorrow
that broke our hearts and still lives inside us…

We were grounded by suffering
drawn from our breath,
buried in the brutality
of grief,
yet it did not destroy us…
instead
it allowed us to reach up
into distant skies,
expanding our vision,
until we became fragrant
with the translucency
of eternity…

And In the tenderness of this most sacred temple,
this heartbeat,
I relive
the ecstasy of this truth
of grace,
way beyond narrations
I’ve made up in my head…

visceral images
grown into immortal bonds…
unimaginable imprints
of soul journeys,
memorialized by the magic
of shared abundance…

I’m privy to a whole universe in your eyes,
windows of eternity
yielding moments
of revelation…
our true selves
moving,
embracing,
dulcet sensations etched into the core of our souls…

My superpower responds to the call
of bravery
of endless love,
and the kindness
that has enabled me
to be fully human…

Though deeply flawed,
I’m perfect in my imperfection…

Deserving of true devotion,
we were made for a time like this…

Luminescent…

May your prayer of listening deepen enough
to hear in the depths the laughter of god.”
― John O’Donohue, To Bless the Space Between Us: A Book of Blessings

luminescent

In the colors of breathtaking sights,
in the resonance of dazzling lights…

All around me, 
everywhere,
in luminescent atmospheres…

Pressed in the fabric
of my clothes,
interwoven,
divinely composed…

Beneath my skin,
deep in my heart,
an awareness that we’re not apart…
