Predawn

Poetry

The indulgence of predawn solitude:
The wind rushing through dancing trees.
The caress of crisp-cool breezes
So delicious and sweet on my skin.
Shadows and hues of plums and midnight-blues
Give way to silver-tinged clouds and slow-warming gold.
A galaxy of ripples electrify the water’s surface –
A landscape alive and ever-evolving,
Painted by the wind.
It tickles and teases in gentle wisps
While gusting in symphony throughout the trees
And in waves of light upon the water.
See how the world awakens,
Responding to the rousing wind –
Conjured in the pull;
The ancient call.

Ether

Poetry

I have dissolved into ether;
There is nothing else.
I have dissolved into ether;
There is nothing left.
I am a cloud,
A vapor,
A serpentine spinning of smoke.
I am a veil,
An illusion,
The mirrortwin of self.
I am vibration,
Frequency,
Pitch,
Absorbed into the eternal hum.
I art thou;
We are one.

Bond

Poetry

We are bound in this infinite coil
Here in the tireless cycle of
Everything and nothing.
The weight of wisdom is
Forever in balance with
The boundless freedom of love.
We are the lotus that blooms in moonlight;
We are the life that grows from decay.
We are the gasp of electric climax;
We are the final dying breath.
We are sound and stillness;
We are sunbeam and shadow.
We are paradise and we are void.
Inside our deepest selves,
Muscle memory:
Eternal spiral.
We are flesh and spirit;
We are stone and sky.
We consecrate our death each breathless night
To be reborn in harmony with the glory of the dawn.
And so the circle is complete
In this eternal bond.

Enrapture

Poetry

Blinding silver rain
Gave way to golden light,
Suffusing the rich emerald leaves
And glimmering brilliant on the mirrored water.
Peace,
Beauty,
Stillness –
Enrapture me.
Detangle me from thoughts and dreams.
Comfort me with the truth of connection.
I am one with everything;
I am free.

Depths

Poetry

From the darkest depths
I emerge,
In the inkblack crushing space
Where I am the sole illumination
Within this endless night.
Ascending to the surface,
Rolling tides carry me ashore.
Black then white;
Red then yellow;
Green and blue –
All dazzling me.
This is a time of transformation:
The alchemy of flesh and spirit.
Smooth and shimmering,
I cloak my true form
In the vestments of earthly paradise.
But deep inside I know
Whence I came;
Where I must go
When all that remains
Is my eternal light.
