the words, and love will come

the words just come
forward, flowing
through my heart, and
head, and
onto the page you’ve read

and, at other times,
it’s as if the page
you’ve read,
has never been said…

contemplations like these,
remind me
of the love we feel,
easy, coming, and going,
like the seasons,
as we continue running…

here, and then gone,
a whisper,
soft and kindled
with love and care,
we wonder
where they’ve always been, and

foundered, yes,
at times, still

try as we might,
forcing the issue
will only lead
to more isolation,
and eager anticipation…

when we can
reside in the heart,
and realize the words, and love,
will come in their time,
just like we’ve always
understood they would

we create
a new space,
filled with light,
and faith in growing,
because we’ve been showing

our heart

to the world, and
as we slow down,
and recognize this proof,
we become one

with our hearts inner truth

sit secure in your heart

along the cliff,
I feel somewhat adrift,
floating in a sea
of unknown possibility

I look
for guidance, and
notice the resistance
from within, yes kin,
and known well to me, my friend

also there
is the utmost care, and
feeling of creativity,
within my own reachability

I can feel it
through every
fiber of my being,
calling me forward,
as I continue to struggle
with the movement onward…

the mind dances, and creates
like a mirror on a lake,
images come into view,
and, we, at times,
take them at face value

yet, there’s another way

to determine
all that’s in store,
by continuing to
pull apart the minds
creations, as they dance
along, and soar,
so seemingly secure…

is at the center
of this understanding

remember, therefore,


as we watch
the mind create waves,
and they crash along our shore

to sit
secure in your heart,
and know,
that the center
is always there, now,
and forevermore

to live a life as full as heeded

locked inside
a container,
of my own making

I struggle to find
the light,
complete absence
sets me off with a fright

to breath,
if life
is all that it seems

I get quiet,
quiet enough
to hear
the hammering
of my heart,
my painful chest


it picks up
in relation
to the myriad
roiling around my head,

than anything
can be said
to have sped

them down
not possible,
tools escape me,
and isolated,
tears well
in my eyes,
and I even,
at that time,
struggle to cry

leak instead,
when fullness
into stations
of another
portended foundation


years later,
I will reflect on
these times,
after learning
has been delivered,
and understanding
is bourgeoning
within my hearts center

these memories
ever so lightly,
abiding in my center
and knowing,
though painful,
these experiences,
were necessary, and
to live a life as full
as heeded
