Love Beyond Glitter

Glitter, glitter
Shines the Light
Through the stars
And moonlit night
Heart to heart
Glow reaches far
To honor the Soul Love
That you are

All that glitters
Isn’t gold
No matter what
Desires hold
No more hurt
Refrain from pain
Someday I’ll hold You
Close again ~

Silence Becomes You

Amada Amada
Your silence becomes you
It shines in your eyes
Like glitter of sunlight
Through a dew drop tear

It adds to your smile
Curling the sweet corners
Adding to the mystery
Adventure and delight
That you are

It sweeps over your face
Like the mane of a wild horse
Free in virgin pastures
Windy, warm, wide open
Away from man’s capture

It sits in your lap
Peaceful and bold like
Enlightenment
Sat upon Buddha’s
Awakened heart

It sees right through me
Like a mirror reflecting
My selfishness, inner
Disharmony, and perhaps
I’m not as bad as all that

In silence you breathe
And I think, hope,
You will speak
But only a patient sigh
Escapes your lips

My heart shouts out
Ad nausem
Thunderous with the sound
Of the mayhem of love
Desired and dreamed of

As I sit here yammering
Away my breath
You let the words flow by
Like diamond dust
In the sky

Perhaps that silence
Looking so good on you
If I tried it
Just might look, maybe,
Half as good on me

Vagabond Spirit Entered My Home

Spirit found a crack in my heart
And entered profoundly
Filling every crevice
Splintered from eons of life
Shining through each facet
Renewed awareness of
Deepest Love

Spirit entered my Soul
Splitting me away from
Anything I thought I knew
Before this–ah!–simply rude
And welcomed debut!
Aiming to capture me–
And succeeding

Spirit works Her magic
No matter how hard I fight
Not letting me forget
Her presence or mission
Yet ignores me waiting
For the moment I call myself
Fully surrendered to Her

Letting Go, Part 1

Whisper chills
Down the spine
Falling, calling
Silent pine
Reaching, grasping
Missing fine
Breathing lost
Malaligned

Facing void
Of emptiness
Looking down
Nothing left
Eerie face of
Nothing less
Than weary hopes
And dreary deaths

Stars swirl round
Absent path
Dissolving in
The aftermath
Life be gone
A new one had
Condolences
Forsaking sad

Claw marks mark
The Letting Go
No return,
This is known
Turn to face
Those wildest fears
Finally silence
All those years

Hey, Mr. Neuroscientist, I Hope You Don’t Mind

Hello, Mr. Neuroscientist
How wonderful to meet you
I hope you don’t mind
But I couldn’t help noticing you
From across the room

Dear Mr. Neuroscientist
Tell me everything you’ve learned
I hope you don’t mind
But I can’t help wanting to
Know everything about you

Handsome Mr. Neuroscientist
What does love do to the brain?
I hope you don’t mind
But I think I fell in love with you
From the moment I caught your eye

Beloved Mr. Neuroscientist
Can you tell me why I feel this way?
I hope you don’t mind
But I have the urge to take you away
And share my life with you ~
