I Am Here

I am the wave that reaches
for the sky.
I yearn to be free
upon
the rocks. They beckon to me,
day and night.

I am the ocean, vast and powerful.
I greet
the mighty rivers,
and we celebrate
and mourn
the end of their wondrous journeys.
We roar
with laughter
and I dissolve their tears.

I am the wind that never rests.
I hold the waves
in my embrace
and we love one another,
and dance together,
late
into the moonless night.

I am yearning. I am freedom.
I am bondage and I am joy. I merge and I separate. I change every day
and yet
I never do.

Come sit by me and watch. Drop the veil and listen.
Feel.
Like no one's there.
You can tell me your story and I
will tell you mine.

O Beautiful Child














I see
sparkles of joy
and many hues of happiness
that light up your eyes each time
I look into them.

Sometimes
your gurgling laughter
gives way to a roaring silence
made loud by thoughts
from a mind such as yours,
so young it would seem,
yet dazzled
by the light of your soul
that is from a long time ago.

As you gaze at your world,
trying ever so hard
to make sense of it all,
your smile never fades.
Perhaps in communion
with yourself
do you find the answers
you longingly seek.

I am struck by the brilliance
that shines in those eyes
for in them I see
a knowing so resolute
of what you have come here
to be.

In your eyes, sweet child
a whole new world
simmers.
It waits, patiently
for its time.

Harmony


Sitting before thee,
I am bathed by the light
that flows from the depths of your Soul
On wings of silence,
As well at the heart of words.
Your Words.
Encased in the profoundness of your 
thoughts,
Adorned by your quietness.

Radiance
pours forth in great measure
From thee
And the blazing light within my
fiery soul
Rises up in rapture to greet yours.

In that moment I am blinded
By harmony.

Then, when you are gone,
I can see once again,
But this time
More than ever before.
