Love

I try to contain

Love’s ever-expanding movement

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.

Extend your

Shackled mind

To the boundless

Hand of Love.

It holds the solution

To your sure

And final liberation.

So have no doubt

You cannot

Remain locked

Not even from

A half-turn

Of Love’s master key.

Ever since I

Plunged my head

Beneath the

Ocean of Love

The soggy ground

Of this mind

Can no longer

Hold the weight

Of a single thought.

Every one of them

Keep seeping through

To the empty ground of Love

Whether for

One minute,

One hour,

Or one day

Sitting on our meditation cushion

Prevents violence,

Preserves lives,

And lovifies the

Human heart.
