Brother Sun, dance

Brother Sun dance
across the
memory landscape
of my soul
dragging bells
and
bracelets. . .
leaving
a void in your wake
as Sister Moon smiles
-sadly

The face of all the world is changed, I think,
Since first I heard the footsteps of thy soul . . .
Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Who said that
who knew
you
the way I did?
Who else
saw the faeries at play
that sunshine day
in the
cool shadows
of your friendship?
. . .and still
I listen
waiting
seeking
to hear the footsteps
of long forgotten
lives


---o0o---


Alone I stand
finding security in
my confusion
knowing that I cannot
hold on
Have to let go of you
you and me
and
what I believe to be me
for it is in holding on
that I stop the process
halt the one-ness
of the universe
the one verse
the song of exaltation
my being
my alone-ness
my whole-ness
al(l)one


---o0o---


I journeyed towards you
my Uranus
along byways of
broken dreams
and highways of forgetfulness
until you
quietly
gently powerful
arrived……
my mirror
my doorway
my Uranus….

May I have this dance….?


---o0o---


Fighting fear
I reach out to you
and find emptiness

Fighting pain
I shatter…
opening up
to the beauty within

Seeking love
I enter …
the beauty
the fragile scent
of my own being


---o0o---


The landscape of pain
seems barren
vast and
inhospitable

hiding beauty
strength
and
hidden landscapes

of promise
laughter
joy and
love




---o0o---


As I open up
to the hurt
that is you
I surrender
to a love greater
stronger and
gentler

Loving you for the gifts
-the strength in your absence
-the wisdom of not knowing
-and the joy of loving
simply because I can

As I embrace you
I let you go
…..and my heart takes flight!


---o0o---


Gently
flowing
I withdraw from struggle
…the need to be right
…the need to win

I let go of the fear
…not being good enough
…not being strong enough
…not being enough

Gently
flowing
I return

As I silently accept
…the gentleness
…the flow
…the power of one
