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…

the sands of time

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the withdrawn, now gone,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…

love shines forth

broken wings,
soft and evergreen,
mended,
with the everlastingness
of the sun’s rays,
dancing yellow, and green, they seem

to heal

from
upside down,
as the pain is turned
inside out, and cleaned throughout…

cascading light,
wishing upon a star
from afar, yet
closer, than realization dawns

as the candle drops,
and, hints…by

speaking in
a language of love
forever kissed, I must admit

your scent lingers
in the air,
fair, as memories
become closer to me
than the breath of you near, and

in this instance,
brokenness becomes
something
altogether witnessed

as love
shines forth, and
we become more,
than you and I
have ever experienced…

life is already alight

feelings
running so deep,
it’s as if the being
calling me forth,

is interested

in fractured ways
of living,
splitting me
in two,
as I continue
to learn more
about the entry
to heavens’ door

located

on this earth,
in this moment

present
to the love within
every being, and
living thing
on this
beautiful planet
pulling me towards
them

with a fervor,
impossible
to ignore

we listen,
hear the heartache,
and,
hold the pieces
of being together
with theirs,
in a dance
of past mistakes,
future worries,
and steps one may take

while
we
call them
present
to the gift
in the stillness
of this
moment

a gift, which

requires quietness,
and listening
with all your might

drawing
upon your intention,
and an inner-knowing
that all of life
is already
alight
