The sky speaks..

“You are the sky. Everything else – it’s just the weather.”
― Pema Chödrön

The sky speaks to me
in shades of light
holding my attention
a wondrous sight.
It is the miracle
of all who breathe,
a light that dances
for those who believe.
Infused with a magic
that never ends
In vivid colors
that wildly blend.
a canopy
that cradles the universe
sacred chapters
of spoken verse…

A resonance of dazzling light!

“Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.”
― Henry David Thoreau, Walden

In the colors
of breathtaking sights
and the resonance
of dazzling light,
all around me
everywhere,
in luminescent atmospheres
pressed into the fabric
of my clothes,
interwoven,
divinely composed,
beneath my skin
deep in my heart
an awareness that we’re never apart..

Our hearts know!

“Only from the heart can you touch the sky.”
― Mawlana Jalal-al-Din Rumi

We ride rainbows in the sky,
dream dreams
of days gone by…

Sing songs with meaningful beats,
drink the favor
of eternal peace…

We wish on stars and blue moons,
become drenched
in love’s monsoons,

basking in the fields all day long,
we are the gathering
of heaven’s throng…

We whisper secrets in the darkness,
feel the intensity
of being incarnate…

And when the flavor of life gets bland,
we collapse into
gentle hands…

And let color return to the spaces,
where once
there was
complete stasis…

declaring life to our higher selves,
our hearts know
where divinity dwells…

My silent vows…

The skies surrender
to the presence
of the moon,
lighting the darkness,
as clouds
softly swoon,

and magic is present
when the sun
is at rest,
stars quietly
twinkle
at the night’s request…

trees sway
soundlessly
in humble repose,
reminding me
gently
that I’m not alone,

and I ask the moon
to reveal her secrets,
to outline
her mystery
her divine allegiance…

fluent in kindness
she tenderly
allows
me to confide in her
my silent vows…

We learned how to fly…

“It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them.”
― Aldous Huxley , Island

I made a vow to go down paths
where magic lights the way,
to stop and smell the flowers,
whether my mood be bright or grey…

to feel the glow of human breath
and touch diaphanous skies,
to walk lightly my darling,
to look into your eyes,
to wonder how you got so lovely
as you quietly grew,
we wished upon the magic
in whatever we’d been through…

and when our wings took shape
we learned how to fly,
we never needed a pardon
not even when we died…

just to float on seas of cosmic jewels
and count the crystal stars,
to bring what really matters
and appreciate who we are…

to forget the baggage that weighed us down,
we left it at the gate,
to speak in the tongues of all humankind
as we contemplate…

the stillness of the mornings,
the air in the afternoons,
the radiance of the setting sun,
and the rising of the moon…

from swamps of waterlilies
we grew out of the mud
and from this suffocation,
we knew we’d had enough…

but lightly my darling let’s fly back to the sun,
be adorned by the angels
and with light become one….
