leaves

🍂

Posted on Updated on

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

gently
flooding
my entire being

raw light
spilling
from your eyes

whisperings

Posted on Updated on

In rustling
of leaves
I hear you

in stillness
I feel

you persist
here
never too far
between
my breath
and heartbeat

hidden yet visible
you tease
often playing
hide and seek

come close
sit with me
be mine,
my perfect bliss

reticent reverie

Posted on Updated on

come to me
not as a wild thought
a forgotten image
or a transient feeling

not as the wave
that returns
after kissing the shore

not as light
that trickles
through the leaves
on a sunny day
unsure of its presence
or absence

but as the coolness of sand
under the shade of the sun
as the white of pearls
or the green of leaves
as the lasting depth
of ocean bottom

stay with me
like inherent nature of things
constant yet fascinating
unwavering
enduring
real

divine ushering

take me to the place
where peaceful waters flow
where rain glistens on the leaves
a cool, gentle breeze blows

where the keys unlock
unleashing pure understanding
appealing to my parched senses
giving each breath, a new meaning

take me to that shore far away
where rapture and love washes the sand
with each crashing wave
where hopeful hours and innocent kisses
fill a careless day

with you, take me to the heights
where we can soar
two souls, spilling untamed joy
in a laughing sky
seeking nothing more
