the moons gentle bestowing

the moon is always calling to me, through
the vastness of the space, in-
between

the stars and galaxies…

I rest easy in this knowing, learning more about
myself through the reflection of
the moons gentle
bestowing

kind and compassionate, sitting in the sky, just for our
eyes, like a dreamer,
disguised

in plain view, the nature of listening to the wind,
and learning from the whispers
carried on the backs
of

those we call our friends…trees, flowers, and all of nature’s
creations, call forth
a love

living at the center of the cosmos, providing protection
from the storms that enter mind, and heart
at the same time

while we sit back, breathe in, and realize that life is,
just now,
in this moment,
already in love

with
all we’ve already given…

we rise from the seas

I swim through the stars, and walk through
the seas, it’s as if presence, and
tranquility

always belonged to me…

living in the belief we hold about life’s
struggles

and dreams

we rise from the seas, and wander the strands,
looking for existence to take us by
the hand…

loving each moment with fullness of heart, glimpsing
it in every living being, we rest easy,
not clinging

to this or that, while
walking

among the flowers and trees, we continue
to pursue our dreams, and live out our
destinies…

the presence of love

loving is hard work, relating all we’ve known,
truth, and deep pain, resonates
the same…and,

sometimes

it does burn, scalding from within,
as we look up, transfixed, by the night sky,
cool, placid, not dim

we wonder

what’s hidden in those galaxies, far away, as we try,
offering solace to our hearts, giving those we love
another start, to

make their way into the galaxy next door, buried
in a love so deep, we often ignore, yet, opening up,
we create the possibility of another
shore

waves lapping upon the heart, cooling the burn, healing
the pain, and offering us more hope than
we can say…

experience, not at bay, only ever, the presence
of a love that will never stray, and
always stay…
