Love

She pulled

Me into

The warmest embrace

And whispered:

“Let’s be friends, again.

For real this time.”

And so begins

A new adventure

With Aloneness.

What is the length

Of your love?

Wrap it twice

Around the

One that annoys

You most

And it reaches

To infinity.

Do not think on this.

Just start wrapping.

I try to contain

Love’s ever-expanding fluidity

With my mind

And I could not hold it.

So, I apologize in advance

When it spills all over you.

Every now and again

Time takes a vacation

And disappears from

The eyes of our awareness

Into the heart of our purpose

Turning our actions into

Time itself.

So, if you are intent

On knowing the time

Be love to all you can find.

When sight

Takes over

My seeing,

The mind

Abandons its yearning

And ego its doing.

My entire being

Dissolves into the loving

That Life is being.

In just a moment,

The purest

Vision of Love

We see

Inside ourselves

Will take form

Through our words

And deeds.

Wait. for. it…

No.

That is not

How it works.

We must

Make love.

My exercise routine

Is to fly through time,

With feet and thoughts intertwine

Into the embrace

Of Love divine.

 

Find the roots

Of disturbing thoughts.

Nourish them

With the nutrients

Of forgiveness

And kindness.

Cultivate the ground

For peace in all directions.
