A Thousand Dreams

You broke me open so quietly
there were times I begged for mercy;
asked you to stop this loving.

Your love was a raging fire.
It burnt through me
carving out channels
in places so deep
I could not know they existed.

You were a cougar – a mountain lion,
I believed you would kill me with one pounce.

You pursued me through a thousand dreams,
stalking my illusions with relentless precision
until my mind was shattered
my body raw and finally
I paused. To look
into your eyes.

I became so still that time
stopped. I became.
Stillness.

Then we were equal you and I:
Death staring at death;
Life staring at life.

There was no fear
only total acceptance.
Silence dissolved through us
with perfect resonance.

There was no longer desire
but an ocean of emptiness
fulfilled beyond completion.
We merged with reverence

I returned in you
tender – a witness to Love.

Birth

Searching for those spaces
The pregnant emptiness between what has been noticed
This is where we might catch ourselves
You and I, He and She
Beautiful ones, all.

We have travelled inwards
Drawn meaningful breath
So now we can let go
Breathing out, we are breath
All boundaries dissolved

In the expansion we give birth to now

We have discovered
The space has always been here.
