the love of one another

I drop to my knees,
and give thanks
for the silence
in-between

this moment
and that, as common
as past circumstance

notwithstanding

I dream of you
in the blue,
and look forward
to our next meeting, stay in tune

would you?

lead me
from this dream,
into another phase
of the magical stream

flowing this way, and that,
I consider all the options,
weighing down
the rocks and trees,
and choose to sit silently

breathing in and out,
respiration,
just like the flower
sends love to the bee,
I think about
the ways in which
you touch my being, and
make the twirls go around and under

the love of one another

every single ounce of you…

knock, knock,
knock,
goes the paradox,
as we watch
the summer end, and
heads towards
another equinox…

love
left behind
in the summer rain,
smells of you,
while I deliberately
take respite out of view, and

caress
a fallen star
with all the love
in my heart, and
prepare to bid you adieu…

dreams
whispered
toward the mountains,
while I bound over
the trail less trodden, and

reminisce
with the flowers
of longer days,
and lingering scents
which remind me
of what’s true…

dreaming again,
who comes into view,
as my heart swells
with the effervescence
of the new,
and I prepare
to cherish
every single ounce
of you…

heart-centered relatedness

sun sets, afire with
an afterglow
of the morrow, as sorrow
wells in my chest, lest we forget
the many scars
imbedded in the net

of my beingness…

one step forward,
looking out
over the vastness
of this planets loveliness,
I digress, and ponder
the reality from within
my own knowingness, as

love spreads out
from the seas,
and through the air,
traveling
from here to there,
making its way
into the hearts
of all
that live inside
of this planet’s
heart-centered relatedness

In response to the WDYS #99 prompt from Keep it Alive, by Sadje.

two vines, dancing forevermore

I watch,
listen,
and learn more,
as the forest
comes alive, and

the
vibrancy
emanating off
the floor,
speaks to me
in a language
never heard before…

light
dancing
with darkness,
as shadows
glow, and speak
of transcendence

leaves fall,
while I sprawl,
and continue
to listen
to two hearts,
intertwined now,
just like two vines,
dancing forevermore
