An invitation…

“The wise man does not lay up his own treasures.
The more he gives to others,
the more he has for his own.”
― Lao Tzu


Their open hearts announced
an invitation,
to be the fragrance of love
and generosity!

Exposing their true colors,
they were worthy of celebration,
and those who beheld them,
flocked to
their arrangement…

Tinged with a little of the wild
and cast with passion,
their quiet attitude attracted
sentient beings
who grasped the resonant tones
of deep kindness
and affection…

their treasure not in transient things but in gifts of love, freely given…

“We listen for guidance everywhere except from within.”
― Parker J. Palmer Let Your Life Speak: Listening for the Voice of Vocation

ripples on the water

Innermost silence touches my skin,
in liquid light
I enter in.

Caravans of hope take me through despair.
visceral reflections,
grief becomes clear.

Mystical gateways counteract the pain,
whispered auguries
in sacred domains.

Splashes of radiance assuage my tears
in cosmic altitudes
I exhale fear!

Becoming radiant….

“Where there is ruin, there is hope for a treasure.”
― Rumi

becoming radiant

I don’t want to bore you with copious tears,
cacophonous nightmares,
and irrational fears!

I’ve tried to move on from ruination’s abyss,
play chords of a love song,
but the deep groan persists!

Perhaps I should hemorrhage out once again,
befriend my sorrow,
and have words with my pain!

It’s with intense sadness of love that I’m lost,
the memories, the remorse,
the chasms I’ve crossed.

But look…..
I’m becoming radiant,
little by little.
Incandescent light
glows out from the middle!

With intention,
not time,
I’m trudging along,
unearthing the treasure of
my soul dialogue.

Perfectly fashioned in the image of the divine,
I sift through the chaos,
knowing I’ll survive!!
