Please, my dear, take this one moment in time,
to see inside my heart, for the unending love that courses through my soul,
in that you will see the light of this world,
the light of love, the light of truth, and the light of all that can be.
Forgo the darkness of what was, and bask in the light of what is
this one moment of time
Seek what is you wish to find, hold on to the vine that will support you for eternity,
The vine that does not entangle your heart, but embraces it as sun embraces the earth.
Take in this one moment of time
This hand of mine outstretched not in hasty offering of thought
But rather as a grasp of the glory that this one moment allows,
The glory of love, the glory of eternity, the glory of promise our two souls provide.
For, in this one moment of time,
We can enjoy eternity.
The wind has not been colder since we grew apart,
The avid clangs of memories do
spawn timeless shapes of what could be,
yet keep us from all that is beyond what we hold in our empty hands.
We walk in a mud shaped avalanche of all that we expect,
We stand inside that happenstance,
Too afraid to move, too afraid to let go!
…that sorry weakened vine that serves to tie us to such memory.
That empty hand did hold that weakened vine;
Did hold that span of distant crime,
I long to see it go, see it fade into timeless nothingness,
But what, as I stare at empty hands, doth keep me to this vine?
It is not my grip, it is not my strength, this vine is wrapped around my heart.
It has been an eternity since we grew apart,
A not forgotten distant stare, memories singed into empty air,
We tug, we push, we pull again, cyclic anger without an end,
Someday perhaps we’ll pull anew, pull together as lovers do
Perhaps, perhaps…the sun set down-another day gone through.
The wind that howls each passing day,
the wind that drives each a different way,
This thickened rope hath intertwined,
This vine, this vine, chocked forever out of lovingness
Since we grew apart.
Ah the warmth of sunlight basking down
The chill of evening does abound,
The line that breaks the two slides by,
No name for this part of neither’s sky.
Light to the left – none to the right,
On the left there is day – on the right there is night,
Abound in the fact that neither is wrong,
It’s right in this middle the two get along.
It’s hottest or coldest the further you get,
But seek in this middle where neither’s a threat.
Rejoice in this meeting where neither finds shame,
And thank God for the fact that He gave it no name.
Tis strange, this change I’ve found in you,
For as often as the storm clouds shake my soul,
As keenly as the lightening strikes and the thunder roars,
I know above them the sun is always shining.
You say you changed for me?
Does an evergreen become a spruce?
Or a stone become a feather floating in the wind
For the sake of itself or the ground below it?
No, change is uniquely yours, it serves only your purpose,
And purpose is like envy, it is only yours if you say it so,
For a change in one’s nature is like telling the scorpion not to sting,
Or a bird not to fly, or the for breeze not to gently cool your brow.
The Change you say is not really change at all,
Either it is or it isn’t, it cannot be created, it cannot be destroyed,
It is, or it isn’t, it was or it wasn’t
the Truth behind the way things are.
The sun needs no rule, no written word to tell it to shine;
The earth needs no rule, no written word to tell it to spin;
A tree needs no rule, no written word to tell it to shed it’s leaves;
Water needs no rule, no written word to tell it to nourish;
The clouds need no rule, no written word to tell them to rain.
As long as we all are true to our natures, without ego, we will all know the power and the love of God.
I find this different side of Las Vegas more enticing to me. There you find a supply a beauty otherwise missing in a city of vice.
I spent but just a minute
Although it seemed like forever
Gazing at your power, basking in your glow.
I prayed but for a minute
But stayed in that minute forever
Longing for no end, yet seeing it pass me by.
I listened but for a minute
And heard what must be the Voice of God
Whispering ever loudly, the Song I have yet to understand.
Took these on my way to Las Vegas (only there for a day). I think the mountains are awesome, particularly with snow on them.
Hope to never see that snow disappear at the whims of man (aka Global Warming).
As I sleep eternal-
Do not cry for me,
Stay happy in the knowledge
That I am where I am intended to be.
Take heart my dear,
That as a newborn baby I am free,
To go where I am destined to go,
To see what I am destined to see.
Please smile my darling,
As you gaze upon the confines that once had me bound,
And do not long for me,
For my feet no longer touch the ground.
Please hold me in your soul,
For there you will never be alone,
Look inside yourself to find my open arms,
And understand, at that moment, all that you have shown.
For I love you,
And that love will never die,
And as clearly as I return from where I came,
I will be waiting for you~do not cry.
She is my wife,
but not my wife.
She is my partner,
but not my partner.
She is my lover,
but not my lover.
She is not mine,
Her thoughts, feelings and needs are not mine,
Yet they belong to me,
And are the essence of the we that makes us whole.
I do not walk for her,
Yet I am with her every step along the way.
I do not breathe for her,
Yet she is the sound in every breath I take.
I once could not see,
Where the light was the brightest.
I once could not hear,
Where the sound was so clear,
I once could not understand,
What was so easy to read,
I was so smart I could not think beyond the thoughts of a child.
I will learn by just watching,
I will see by just closing my eyes,
I will hear by speaking in silence,
I will be whole by falling apart.
I will own by letting go.
