the flame of hope and love…

heartbreaks are full of rain, and the setting sun,
is just the same, as senseless tragedies,
they came

knocking at our door, waiting, and watching
for us to bring the
thrum

of a life lived underneath the trim, and drum
of absence embroiled, and
shunned

weeping like the flowers on a midsummer morn,
we call to the heavens, wanting to know
more

about the reasons existence pulls the chains and
chords, while we fight against our inner-
discord…as

remembering seems like an eternity, we draw
on every piece of light left available, and
take it all in,
keeping
the

flame of hope and love alive, as we abide, and
continue to unwind
time

now…resting easy in our hearts and minds….

a dance of mysterious tapestry


as the breeze comes through the window,
I hang hopes on clouds, running fast,
and furious, quite profound

are they

beautiful, translucent, and full of
magical movement, transcending this
moment…

light and dark, in a dance of mysterious
tapestry, woven gently, and carefully,
by the unseen, preen

shielding you and me, from the glean,
as the shadows begin to dance with
the trees

the flowers perk up, and provide a love
seen

lasting centuries…

just like a star-spangled night

heart bared,
and transfigured,
manipulated,
just like a trigger

pulled on
again, and again

I often
asked myself
then

where
did this
story begin…

in a
deserted
landscape, devoid
of senses, and
flushed
with ambiguity

we reflect
upon
those moments,
with a zeal
and flourish

and,
understand
today, they

kept us away
from the connection
we felt,
deep inside

actions
eluding us,
unable to take
ahold of
the unity dealt,
however, aligned

in
the presence,
and

knowing,
always arising, yet
unable to abide
in our heart’s center,
so bold and kind

and, years later…

the knowing
did not subside,
rather, it
grew deeper, and
shined forth,
just like
a star-
spangled night

open hearts have healed

I stared
at the screen,
and nothing came

forward,

until
a whisper
of something
quite different
came flying by,
in pure insistence

unannounced
at the time,
was this tiny flicker
of insight,
waiting to be seen
on just
the right night

feeling
first,
is how it works

a stirring,

awaiting
recognition,
as it
makes its way
to the floor outside
our open hearts door

knocking
for entry, realizing
we’re retreating,

it waits,
wonders, and
all the while
saunters,

back and forth
pacing,
and relishing
in the journey
at our hearts very core

sending
messages unheard,
unseen,
yet felt
by those
with the ability
to be free
from constricted sense-

abilities

arising
more,
while numbness
subsides,
resulting in
a most fantastic
grin,
which I adore

ages
come and go,
yet,
wherever
we do travel,
human beings
on this planet
know one thing
for sure

open hearts
have healed
for ages, and
will continue to
far past the time
when
we’ve left this plane
forevermore


I sat down last night to write my diary entry, and, well, nothing came forward. That was, until I opened the document I use to write poetry drafts. Then, this piece came forward. How fun it all is.

Have a beautiful week, everyone.
