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…

the love we feel on this night

the moon
speaks to me,
languages learned
through discorded earth

traveling from afar,
I quest into
the understanding shown,
close to heart, and
yet still from afar,
I’ve learnt…

…through
distances purged,
I indulge in the urge, and
request more at the moons behest,
as seeing, sees fit
to offer more,
closing the distances met

between me,
and the seas,
trees, and flowers
blooming abundantly…

realizing love
is at the center
of all things seen,
and felt in-between
the moons myriad phases,
and my truncated

belief
in this dream…for it is

in the unseen,
where life lives in this moment,
as you and I hold hands,
wish upon a star,
say goodnight to the moon,
and swoon, as delight

lights
up our hearts,
and makes space
for the love
we feel
on this
night

in full bloom…

on this most gorgeous day…

Pixabay

I climb
from the sea, a
journey from underneath,
scraping, and crawling
toward my destiny,
I mind

the feelings
from the deep, as
they speak of love,
light, and the twisted return
of all that burns

me
from
beneath…as

spinning becomes relatable,
just like the tree tops
swaying in the winds dismay,
as they play together
in the midst
of all that’s lovingly displayed

for you and me,
on this most gorgeous day…

the sands of time

Pixabay

I walk
on the sands of time
feeling bereft, and
out of line

with natures
progression,
I, stop, and digest
my vision quest

and, call forth
the winds, a true test…

of our ability
to align
with life’s requests

one step in front
of the other, feeling
the granules beneath, feet

on solid footing,
even when I’m unsure
of the current efforting…as

realization dawns, and
the withdrawn, now gone,
is transformed into something more

than I’ve ever done…

dusty, and delicious

dusty,
and delicious,
a fond remembrance

of times gone by,
a child of five,
eagerly awaiting,
pacing back and forth,
looking at the door, wanting more…

creaks now sound,
pacing stops,
gliding towards the door, I go,
stop, and wait patiently, I see

in the mirror, me

smile brimming,
heart delighted,
rocking towards my heels,
glee from within, waiting on thee…

the door opens, oh,
the sound, as
light comes forth,
the wafting deliciousness
is smelled for miles around…I

now bound up, and

over the table,
ready to dig in, selection
important, take only one,
towards me it comes,
biggest bites as possible
are just enough…

…until I succumb
to the last crumb…
