as you awaken
to the Truth
of who you really are
anything and everything
that is not real
crumbles away

Beloved –
how vain
are my attempts
to reach you

when you have been
right here
all along

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

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

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

the calling

Posted on Updated on

You are
with me
within me
every second
of every moment

Yet, I live the truth
of ‘You’ away from ‘I’

Yet I feel
this intense separation
from home
Like an unborn child
pulled away
from womb

Like the thirsty desert
that longs for rain,
an affliction
with no remedy for pain.

Sleepless at night
restless for days
Beloved, your memory
stirs me awake.

My trembling lips
heaped with sighs,
endless tears, in your name
are now running dry.

Without you, my essence,
how am I
to stay alive?

Calling out
my entire being
leaps,
gasping
for a breath ..

I miss you.
Take me home.

together

In you,
my essence dissolves
like sugar in water.

Beyond you,
I see no other.

Who was I
when I was without you?

Who am I
now that you are here?

Forgive me,
when I shamelessly ask
for your love.

Without it, darling Beloved
I wouldn’t be alive.

‘Show me a way to you’, I ask.
For if my steps don’t lead to you
they aren’t worth taking.

First, to seek love
Then, to be love.
This is our becoming.

adrift

Posted on Updated on

I wandered with a hunger
that only your love
satisfied.

Secrets unveiled with time
pure gratitude remained
for all that I was denied.

As the vision got clearer
chaos collapsed, doors opened
even those I never knew.

Now I keep finding myself
lost in the mystery
that is You.

luminous dream

Posted on Updated on

I wish I could write like the poets
who immortalize moments forever
they pick up a pen
and the poem writes for itself

I wish I could dance like the dervishes
who ecstatically lose themselves
in the rhythm that empties them of themselves
whirling, they reach the skies and touch the deepest oceans

I wish I could show you what I see
in the tickling laughter of a little child
in the touch of a delicate spirit
in the wilderness of nature
and the holy flight of a bird

I wish I could fill your space with a sweet lullaby
drawn from the music of angels
blanket you in my arms
that you begin to feel the warmth of my burning heart
I wish I could give you what I need the most .. and more
