Letting Go

In letting go,
there is a grace
that cleanses the soul~

Your Soul’s Secrets

rosesecrets.jpg

This innocence, we both cherish!
You put your hand on my ear
to reveal your soul’s secrets
and I succumb…
The purity of your heart spreads
as if music in my tympanums,
I lay on the floor, my centers
filled with divine laughter;
my location no longer matters
the entire world is you…

Ecstatic Bonds

In quietude are formed
the most ecstatic bonds,
wrap me with your palm;
I can’t stand being
that soft by myself,
envelop me in you~

Many Ways to the Way!

Outward blindness is
the gift of true lovers.
From not-seeing, a rose;
its fragrance draws us
closer to His Presence.
Many ways to the Way!
Let us say no more.
Now: the revolving.

(Poem excerpt from Nocturnal Light)
