meeting you
was like colliding
with an ocean
and I had no intention
of staying afloat

with each turn
opened a new universe
sweat, tears, hopes, dreams
all had their way

a birth and a death
in each experience
only love and learning
has remained

that journey now
has reached completion
and new horizons await

if only
you could see
what I see in you

hear what
I cannot say

you are
what no words
can contain

like all that is sacred
treasured, in my heart
you remain

you are..
you are to me
more than a story
more than a memory

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

Light
has always been there
never beyond reach
flickering
at times flaming wild
defined spaces
clear boundaries
but to have a heart
that has bled much
loved much
it is in darkness
that the human in me
comes to life.

raindrops
on the window pane
thunderclouds
drifting through the rain

in the vicinity of object of desire,
and the beauty it inspires
absorbed in crimson hues
and gentle eyes
I don’t have slightest clue
of where the time flies

taken aback by illuminated secret,
giving birth to spirit anew
I feel the tender kiss of Universe,
silently, invisibly saying –
‘here’s a gem, carved just for you’

living life in these perfect moments
is always such a delight
when I know that one day
this love is going to take my life

Every Girl is Some Man’s Daughter

I read this awe-inspiring, genuinely beautiful post a few months back, only to read it again today and realize how amazing it is to have a father figure who not only respects all women but is also a true inspiration. Robert, one of my most treasured readers, thank you for this..thank you for being you!

Sol Invictus

I love my little girl.  I still call her “Little Girl.”  She’s now 14, as tall as her mother, and full of aspirations, new feelings, and visions of a coming future.

Summer

I remember when I first learned that my wife was pregnant.  I was stunned, scared, and in denial.  I could think of no way that this would work.  I was selfish, and still very much a boy (no matter what my biological age was then).  Never having had a father figure of any kind, I just couldn’t conceive that I could manage.  I was worried.  I didn’t know what to do.

The only experience I had with fathering was being the stepfather to my wife’s son.  He turned out to be a fine young man (that’s for another post), despite my attempts at fathering.

I remember when I learned that this new baby was going to be a girl.  I can…

dearest Divine
help us, guide us, bless us
in your ever flowing love
in your eternal light
may what we do
only brings us closer to you

now that you have brought us this far
hold our hand and show us the way
clear our path to you
please don’t lead us astray

help us realize our gift
fuel our inner flame
with your holy name
help us remember our purpose
and why we came

make this purifying experience
easier on us
on our souls, on our worldly existence
polish us
enlighten us
so leaving only good behind
we do more than our empty words
could ever express

may all those who pass by
be blessed with the clarity
choosing the right from the wrong
they are led
to where they belong

if you are in our humble hearts
your essence blends
in the speech that flows
and the transcending spirit
branching upwards
unceasingly glows

with a heart full of gratitude
I only ask of you
to keep us close
quieten our minds
so you, my Beloved
can be the overflow
