every little thing
leads me
to you

it is in you
I see
all things

 

quest

Posted on Updated on

of all the places you could go
of all the adventures
that come with being alive
being human
in its truest essence
is the hardest journey
you and I
will ever undertake

tell me
about the ways
in which you are human
flawed, broken, vulnerable
and all you have endured
in this thing called life

I promise
I will show you
there is beauty
in that brokenness
that makes you
more lovable in my eyes
more precious in my heart
than any illusion
of ‘perfect’
ever will

I will continue
to love you
despite your scars

I will love you
more
for them

I looked for you
and couldn’t find a trace

now the search
has ended
and we meet laughing

at every place I go
in every face I behold

Beloved –
how vain
are my attempts
to reach you

when you have been
right here
all along

aware of each breath
in mindfulness, I step

each moment
a new flowering

the truth –
how in silence
it awaits
to awaken you
into wholeness

before him or her
you are
what you most need

come home
to yourself

for a moment
stop believing
what they want
you to believe

what hurts you
hurts the other

we all stem
from the same essence
born with hearts to love
and hands to heal

let’s build each other up

we all die
many times, in myriad ways
before the physical death

in the dissolution of a dream
in the passing of a loved one
at the hands of a lover

yet with each spring
life is renewed
in the same place
it collapsed
from the source
that is Eternal

I hear
the leaves dance
in the autumn wind
falling
weightlessly
as if
in a trance
gently reminding me
it is not death
that I should fear
but celebrate spring
that never fails
to keep its promise

ambrosial hour of dawn
adrift in a state of oblivion
of which nothing can be said

there is nothing
more erotic

my entire being

raw light

to the one
who took their time
to honour life
on a sidewalk
this morning

you give me hope
in a world
that has often failed
to recognize
its own kind

the irony of love –
it leaves you
breathless
yet restores you
back to life
in the same moment

wait.

Posted on Updated on

In a sacred moment
I tasted your presence
to the depths
of my soul
and all I ever knew
melted away

time stopped
and that moment lasted
for eternity

in your touch
you showed
what it means
to feel,
in your embrace
what it means
to belong

enwrapped in you
snow flakes
started to burn softly
and I forgot
where I ended
and you began

lost in the day
a thought of you
brushed by
like a gentle breeze
and butterflies
started fluttering
under my skin
in anticipation.

Never far
always close
gently tugging
at my heart strings
you call.
