Meet Life Here

The world has become a dream
the layers blurred and mingled.
When I don’t feel G-d
in every heart beat,
I am lost in the mist –
Belonging nowhere

I walk through this city
in a body made of space;
I can’t find any place
that I am – or am not.

The senses flow unrecognised,
erased of meaning;
My story floats unreachable,
beyond the stillness.
I think I have forgotten
how to be a person.

I move amongst people a stranger,
There’s a place from where the Soul comes –
to which we all return
I know us each so intimately,
so inseparably there – I have become
invisible.

Heart whispers:

“Look at the moon,
breathe in unseen
sounds of light – moving,
watch the wind,
feel rain on skin –

Let love find you.

There is a silence
in all things – meet life
here.

Turn to the world empty handed;
Listen to the beauty
everywhere – waiting
to be spoken.

Fill the deepest holding
of your heart – now
breathe out
all the blessings.”

Each Companion

The night is so kind,
so full, so alive –
I will sit immersed in blessings
until dawn – reflecting;

There are days when
it is so clear –
the grace in others,
the soul spark in all:
the unclothed tenderness
makes this heart ache
with loving –

And the tears that come
seem to be made of light
falling in silent streams
from the beautiful overflowing

I wish I could keep a drop
or two, to remember
the gratitude which says “Yes”
to life’s unfolding and,
recognising each companion, asks
“How – oh how
may I serve you more sweetly?”
