I call to the wind

in times of great distress, I call to the wind,
a friend, and constant companion when times are
grim

less known than before, part of the paradoxical
nature of love and loss,
shown

as part of a life lived

in its myriad fabrics and textures, feeling them with zeal,
I reel, and find a home in all
that’s real…

no hiding, now exposed, raw, vulnerable, and ready
to let go

of the pain, and sorrow, and simply sit in the magnificence
of love in all its shapes, and sizes,
bestowed…


I am at the Oregon coast this weekend, and it is beautiful. The above pic and poem were inspired by my time here, which I always treasure. Growing up by the ocean was a gift, and now living relatively close to the ocean once again fills my heart. Wishing you all a beautifully blessed Sunday, and coming week.

love blossoms over the sun…

I’m covered in a blanket of darkness
as the wind caresses my skin,
and opens me up again

wide, as the sky is deep, I pause
and breathe all of life in…

closing my eyes, I try to remember

why
and where we last met, as love arises
within

towards
the thinness, atmospheric tension, begins…

a tranquility, and calmness beneath the sea, stirs,
and a tremble in the earth shakes
the reverie combined,
mirth

set aside for the dawn,
as love blossoms over the sun…


Portions of this poem may have been inspired by love warmly from aroused, by calmkate. If you’ve not read Kate’s poem, check it out when you have a moment, it is lovely.

I give my heart to you

drinking in the sea water, I hear the bell toll, and,
indeed, it’s my heart you stole

with a second glance, just the kind of romance,
making stories appear
much more than circumstance…

I give my heart to you, as you walk from the sand,
into a land, ill-defined,
and yet, part of the current storyline…

waiting with bated breath,
your hand again clasps mine…and

in that moment, we realize,
just how much love is left in the world
when we’re together…

is divine…

a gift from the seas

troubled times,
filled with ties, tethered,
reminding me
of the weather,
when we
were once together

chosen
to take on
the pleasure,
while you listened
from far away, forever

distant,
hard to grasp, as
we watch
the grown grass

take its time,
reaching

towards the skyline…

will it
make it,
hard to define

the
unimaginable, yet
we find solace
in the curvatures
of the world’s futures

as they
come to fruition,
we pause,
breathe, reflect,
and protect
the actions presence, our
current sentence

as, I

ask
for your hand
again,
while we’re reminded
of the sun,
behind the trees,
hiding from you and me,
yet always present,
like a gift from the seas
