The pause between things

“Only in the pauses between things, in the brief contemplative spaces of just being, can we catch a glimpse of love itself.”
― Gerald G. MayThe Awakened Heart: Opening Yourself to the Love You Need

starlight

In the pauses where
love resides,
wordless realms,
abode undefined.
letting go when thoughts appear,
observation,
release from fear.
free from judgement,
unconfined,
moving reveries,
shaped sublime.

darkest nights they sanctify,
and hold the space
i occupy.
contemplating the cosmic sea,
ushered
into sanctity.
the blissful moon is made to glow,
a mute perspective,
the unknowing.
stardust by resplendent design,
heavenly love songs
of the divine…..

Sweet dreams

sweet dreams

where fire flies dance
and angels tread,
i laid my soul
on silken bed

and transcended
into dreamy state,
reveries frolicked,
i lost dead weigh

the stars shifted
in perfect form,
and called the moon
to dark adorn

soft whispers of a
tranquil night,
breath was eased
when distress took flight

disturbance fled
that spoils the view,
i woke enwreathed
in sparkling dew

when i go to sleep tonight

“Grace is the permanent climate of divine kindness; the perennial infusion of springtime into the winter of bleakness.”

when i go to sleep tonight,
my heart may just stop beating.
in a world of so much strife,
waking is not so easy.

i find myself in nebulous dreams,
living life in stasis.
wishing all my hopes would come true,
amid persistent chaos.

when i go to sleep tonight
i pray i’d wake with peace,
and know serenity of life
that bitterness decrease.

oh beloved let me heal you
and consume your silent tears,
that sad memories be rendered void
and vanquish all your fears

when i go to sleep tonight,
i’ll count my blessings one by one,
and wrap you in celestial robes,
with grace you can’t outrun

The Light of the World

“Knock, And He’ll open the door
Vanish, And He’ll make you shine like the sun
Fall, And He’ll raise you to the heavens
Become nothing, And He’ll turn you into everything.”
― Jalaluddin Rumi

when hope empties
and light fades,
we surrender
to the cosmos
and all her ways.

though we may try to speak,
words are choked
within
our breath.

the conscious awakening,
that only
heaven knows,

where Angelic tongues
consent
to still the terror
which lies in wait,
and guide us back
to inner light.

even darkness
cannot
extinguish
the light of the world…

 

just when i think

Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with shades of deeper meaning.”
― Maya AngelouI Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

a word

just when i think
that the words are all said,
colours leak out
of me,
onto my bed

indigo, lavender and a reddish brown,
they won’t let me sleep
till i’ve scribbled them down

in the small hours
of an inconspicuous night,
relentless imaginings
compel me to write

messages overflow and swirl through the air,
surround me, inspire me
with their brazen flair

i try not to rhyme
but the words won’t comply,
they bombard me
with verses
in oversupply

Holy Ground

“You have traveled too fast over false ground;
Now your soul has come to take you back.”
― John O’DonohueAnam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom

holy ground

way past the asteroids
in realms where dreams explore,
creativity takes me,
out to holy shores

entwined in the magnificence
of a celestial glow,
in cosmic revelations
i participate in the show

when my timid voice falters
in caliginous space,
radiant light will lead me
back to love’s embrace

the wildness of this reverie
has a magical form,
in beauty and in holiness
way beyond the norm

so even when shadows
threaten to terrify,
darkness grows familiar,
my soul is glorified

wanderer

“And you? When will you begin that long journey into yourself?”
― Jalaluddin Rumi

travellers

my mind sounds
like a railway station
when thoughts are
out loud

solo journeys that have no ending
i’m wading through the crowd

always stopping to contemplate
which way i should go

other times rapidly fleeing
trying to resist the flow

a wanderer in a boundless Universe
i’m still silently seeking

sometimes there’s solace in just being here
a state of soundless dreaming

i’ve searched for the place inside myself
where light is plain to see

and asked for help to stay the course
to this sacred sanctuary
