Does Love Grow? (All You Need to Know)

novembre 9, 2018

Does Love grow

Or does the buck stop here?

That is ACTUALLY the question

When you can’t think the answer
Into being

All you need to know is:

Are you pushing the limits of Love?

Is Love expanding?

Your heart as the instrument of measure

May yet need some calibrating

In order to fathom Love’s enormity 

Having been contracted for so long by fear and conformity.

By throwing caution to the wind

And making Love our one and only passion

We may yet know an end to yearning.
 

So Curious About Love

octobre 28, 2018

So Curious About Love you are my darling

Your sweet childish face searching mine

As if I have all the answers.


Having felt so deeply that it was absent

Even when it was not

You now proceed with extreme caution.


Though who can truly resist Love

Especially when it is who we are

And what we were born to do?


Once you fall in Love there can be no falling out

It being as much a part of you

As is the fragrance of a flower.


What you do with Love when it reveals itself is up to you

Just believe me when I say

That i...

Putting Your Own Mask on First

septembre 10, 2018

With all the passengers finally seated with their seat belts securely fastened, the flight attendants secure the overhead bins. Having duly acknowledged the person seated next to you with an awkward smile resembling more a grimace, you then quickly transition to establishing the status quo for the remainder of the flight by pointedly ignoring them in favor of the inflight entertainment system. Delighted to discover that the movie you have been dying to watch is available for your viewing plea...

Last Post

août 20, 2018

Every position full,
Every skill possessed.

Each room already occupied,
No vacancy at the inn.

Everything already thought,
Everything already said,
Everything already written,

A million different ways.

The last remaining occupation,
The next big thing,
The last post,

About which there is much excitement,
But in which is invested little or nothing,

Is Lover

Of each other.

(Not so) Radical Love

août 3, 2018

How many times have you prayed for love and then not been able to receive the answer to your prayers?

You might not even be aware of how many times because you probably didn’t even recognize it as an opportunity for love.

Because we have VERY limited notions of what love looks like.

And incredibly high expectations.

And just to clarify right away, I am talking about love the FEELING and NOT the act.

Love that makes your heart feel like it is going to burst out of your chest. Love that makes you ...

Morning Vibes

juillet 7, 2018
This organism,
This creature,

Softly vibrates.

Before I open my eyes
I feel them

Transmitting,
Searching,
Recoiling,
Resonating,
Reaching,
Seeking.

Effort and striving still asleep

These gentle emanations

Determine

My shape,
My future,
My destiny.

Kids These Days

mai 27, 2018

Not only heard but also seen,

Kids these days bloom,

Into accidental activists who,

Voice and vision intact:


Accept their right to be,


Allow their right to feel,


Shine their light.


Hearts and minds expansive,

Trusting and receptive,

Often anxious and sometimes sad,

Kids these days are at risk of:


Being their best,


Bearing witness to the best in others,


Living fulfilled.


The luckiest among them,

Rarely deprived of love or understanding,

With every need met,

Kids these days choose to:


Be thankful,


Be generous,


Be...

Embodiement

mai 9, 2018

As life would have it, shortly after deciding to explore this topic I found myself vacationing in a new city and anxious to pamper myself, booked a mani/pedi. Upon arriving and seating myself in one of the battalion of chairs I had the uneasy feeling that this was not the kind of place where the body is considered to be a hallowed vessel for spirit but more an object to be subjugated, or at the very least, commanded.


Survival instincts heightened, I quickly gleaned that when the pedicurist ...

Collisions

mai 2, 2018

Head on or sideswipe,

Fatal or figurative,

Paths are irrevocably altered.


Waves crash,

Whips lash,

Stars (and hearts) gravitate.


Heads butt,

Bodies slam,

Balls (and hearts) rebound.


A child forms and fashions herself,

By colliding with her enduring mother.


People and ideas,

Confrontation and resistance can temper.


A crucible of transformation,

Hopefully for the better.


Unless it is an assassination,

Or a hit and run.


Disbelief and incredulity are the first on the scene, Followed by confusion and sadness,

Makin...
