melting together

Corfu, Greece, from Hotel Levant, Pelekas
melting together

I long for
  his heart
    to open
      like a gate
        onto an open prairie
          covered with wildflowers. 
          Where,
         we can meet
      and melt into each other
    like the sun and sky
 at dusk. 

Just a little love poem I wrote…

It’s also part of a collection I put together called All the Shapes of Joy.

melting together

Sunset Sintra Portugal

melting together

I long for

his heart

to open

like a gate

onto an open prairie

covered with wildflowers.

There,

in that space

we can meet

and melt into each other

like the sun and sky

at sunset.

 

Just a simple love poem…

 

* I took this photo at sunset from our hotel room in Sintra, Portugal in 2013.

pure emptiness

Atlanta Aquariaum - Jellyfish 2.jpg

pure emptiness

flexible and flowing
freely moving
melting and merging
immersing in the infinite
integrated energy
existing in pure emptiness

I wrote this poem about being at my center, present and fully awake to experience life, moment by moment, letting it unfold. For me it describes a kind of inner peace, where I have no burdens, where I feel free and at one with life. What does pure emptiness mean to you?

 

* I took this photo inside the Atlanta Aquarium. So beautiful, these two creatures swimming together in a graceful flow. (I try not to get my head too much in the game – I wouldn’t want to run into these guys in the ocean!)
