all things beautifully configured…

rocks covered in green,
the misty between,
sitting at the edge of the unseen,
wondering what this mystery is to me…as

reflection gives way
to transgressions of the past,
and mind continues to flitter,
here, and there, I

sit quietly, watching and observing the
drama play out, without a shout…as

flitter turns
inside out, and brings with it some clout…now

slowing down…as

love arises from the center
of all things beautifully configured…

from my heart, through my fingers

Photo by Jr Korpa on Unsplash

you come to me
in dreams,
as I wrangle
with my feelings,
and the rocks in my heart,
pull at me one by one…

tales lived,
woven with liquid
dreams, as we continue
to share
ourselves
and seal the seams

with

a love
so rare,
it’s hard
to explain
the affair

yet,

I’m beckoned
again, and again,
to write
what comes up

feeling

like
the mysteries
are ready to jump

straight

from
my heart,
through
my fingers, and
onto
the page
you’re already reading…

The Moonlights Kiss

Photo by Evan Leith on Unsplash

fingers glide
along the edges
of the velvety landscape
while
wishing upon a star
for all those who have died
and come before

dreams larger
than life itself
seeded
when young
and
given the proper care
while
attended with love
and devotion
their utmost bared

connection
to the landscape
so clear
it’s as if the sky
has opened up
and given itself to me
as a gift

sun shining down
petals an afterglow of
revelry
and
the mysterious
challenges
we face
hidden
along the lines
we trace

leaving behind
shadows dancing
while
attracting
the moonlight’s
kiss
upon our
collective
face

hearts fill again

Photo by Moritz Knöringer on Unsplash

petals grasp
silence,
as the grass
grows taller,
and the weather fonder

a miracle of nature, and
beauty in simplicity,
without conjecture
or the need
for any grand gesture

just silence
and stillness,
amidst the chaos
and shrillness

being,
without thinking,
and living and loving
until our hearts are breaking

and,

inside this
brokenness,
lives the mystery
of all that’s
been promised us

a wholeness,
which lives
and breathes

thus,

remember,
my dear,
that brokenness
mends,
and hearts fill again

28-5

Image credit; Victoria Strukovskaya @ Unsplash

I knock three times,
yes,
it’s 28-5.
It seems I’ve got
that right, yet
there’s never an answer,
and I wonder
what might be the matter.

I pace
and think,
and think and pace,
clearing my mind
of all those escapes, and
preconceived ideas
of what I’m missing, while
staying present
to the glow that’s forth giving.

And, just then,
I hear someone
from behind the door,
calling someone
from beyond
the shore.

And yet,
no one’s there,
and I wonder
about all that’s fair,

as our

hearts
mingle in a dance
of inquiry,
hidden from view
behind
a barricade
of life’s fullest and most
interesting mysteries.

The Fabric of Accessorised Attachment: Amber and Jeff (4)

When I look inside,
sometimes is found a diatribe,
of ideas, which are
moving and shaping
experience
without the knowledge
of the receiver.

Egoic mind in motion,
suffering extending roots
from craving to attachment.
Blinding light of awareness,
are you afraid of the
parallax light would perform?

Following these ideas
from here to there
is often pale,
until that is,
we get beyond
the veil.

We often accessorize
to people and ideas
too comfortably
with the gates to our heart
unlocked
with hope,
the void of emptiness
remains when the
filled absence
has dissolved.

We must then
make headway,
and, stay resolved,
by being open
to all that’s at our door,
while we learn more
about humanities very core.

Welcome others to be who
they truly are,
by mirroring and refracting
off Self.
Don’t force situations,
solutions once submerged emerge,
uncertainty is reality,
delve into it.

Experience
is a wise teacher, and
can shed light
on the ideas
we struggle with,
while we bundle close
together,
and pray for
our very souls.

Detachment does not
mean that you should own nothing,
but that nothing should own you.
Soaring above the
high planes,
be enrolled experience
yet not of it.

Experience as the guide,
please abide, and
delight yourself in the fabric
of reality within view,
while ensconcing
yourself in the mystery
of all that is hidden within you.
