Happily ever-after


The ups and downs,
and unexpected surprise,
with twists and turns,
to mislead and disguise.

There is willful pretense,
to garner drama and suspense,
just to elicit tears and laughter.
But, I’ve seen the last scene,
and I’ve read the last chapter
regardless of appearance,
its a happily ever-after.

enoughable


I know how I am
and I know how I can be,
and I know you may think
that you’ve had enough of me.
But I am not enoughable.

Transcending what comes natural


I remember that day
when the sky
was painting green,
and I also saw the craziest thing
I had ever seen.

A big ole’ raven,
perched up on a limb,
squawking out loud
and looking down at him.

A very pretty kitty,
looking up at that bird.
I had a feeling it was not
the first time they’d conferred.

Frolicking on the ground,
a rolling ball of feathers and fur,
a messy mass of fury and sound,
I was terrified for him and her.

But as it turns out,
these unlikely friends
were just enjoying playtime.
A loving scene
that lifts and transcends,
what comes natural, to the sublime.

Danger and Wonder


What am I going to do now?
(“be still and know that I am God.” – Psalm 46:10)

I feel;
my skin tingle,
my blood warms,
hands and feet wrinkle,
my breath billows and storms.

How wonderful
being fully in my senses.
I come so alive,
as danger and wonder,
breaks down my defenses.

But in silence and reverie
a spiritual sense fills me.
‘What’s his is mine
and what’s mine is his’,
are the lyrical consequences
of the oneness of all that is.

love breaks the ties


Love breaks the tides
of experiencing limitation.
Love points and guides
our divine conversation.

So cuddle up, close.
Even closer, if you please.
Its love I need most,
to calm my stormy seas.

Love’s Firebrand


Love’s firebrand.

Become as a little child,
and don’t forget to play,
be still and gather
your inner wild,
and let your divine display.

Commune with the one
who always hears,
and let it fill
your heart and soul,
for as you grow,
all through the years,
life can take surely its toll.

There is so much
we don’t understand,
and if its the ‘truth’
we care to touch,
we would be Love’s firebrand.

David’s mystical discovery

I see both sides now


Seeing both sides

He looks
with both eyes,
and sees differently now.
He can see both sides,
from the heart’s
impassioned vow,
to the source of pain
and finds that neither
love or fear are
self-contained.

Entangled contrasts,
are but one
and the same.
Each succumbs
and outlasts,
the other’s
premature claim.

There’s a quickening going on


There’s a quickening going on
with explosions that make no sound,
and where no flash, change of light,
color or contrast can be found.

Different laws will apply
with eyes of wonder remade,
as now its subtleties that supply,
the vast oceans in which you wade.

Circle was squared


‘There was a noise
over there’
‘yes, I heard it too,
I wonder what it was?
what do you want
to do?

As they walked from
here, to over there,
he asked ‘did you see that,
that circle was squared?’

He and the bird
went looking
for what they heard
and then found themselves,
wholly declared.

Just one more throw


When the sun goes down,
the last throw is thrown,
and I can’t believe how fast
my playtime has flown.

“Just one more toss and then,
I’ll be ready to leave,
if you just throw it again,
I’ll happily retrieve.

Its one of my greatest joys,
spending this time with you,
and although I love all my toys,
its the frisbee I most love to pursue.

So come-on, give me a break,
we’ve only been here an hour,
do it for our relationship’s sake,
we wouldn’t want that to sour.”

“Okay,
one more throw
but then we gotta go”
He smiled and said,
while shaking his head.

I’ll bet you can guess
what happens next,
yep, no different than me
and always wanting more,
over and over and like before,
“just one more throw”
she says,
“but, we gotta go”
he says.
