Awakening to Love

April 26, 2012

Awakening to Love
by Naomi

midnight opens portals
on the canvas
of night
winds rush in
mixing light
with colors of dream
as feeling guides
the eyes of the heart

a form appears…

from behind a veil
of sleep
a canopy of lashes
opens
and closes
the curtain of clarity

did my heart summon
this swirling beauty
attracting these inner eyes
into the dance
of the garden
should the artist awaken
and allow
the gaze of love
to bring it to life
or create a diversion
and develop
a different dream

love tightens its grip
on the brush and lets the color
have its way
with the power
of the vision of night
a lotus flower blooms
birds announce the dawn
at midnight
as light comes flooding in
and unshielded eyes are blinded
by beauty

O my soul is a sea
of uncried tears
brimming like dew
falling from the eyes
of this
developing face
heart is singing
a song
of joy….but fear
has summoned the guardians
of fright
to clear the vision
and make it disappear

the night is yielding
to dawn
the longing is greater
than all the caution
to allow this vision
to manifest
as the glowing spirit
enters the heart
and dream touches real
suddenly time
vanishes
and a being
is born
awake to love

Flow of transformation

April 18, 2012

Transported beyond words
beyond image
into mysterious
beauty
of spirit

a living essence
beyond form
lingers as a golden glow
in vanishing water
from a fountain
of light

a breath
intimately warmed
by love
whispers the way
to freedom
of flow

empowering the heart
to generate
the sacred energy
that
transforms
each life

Naomi

the grace of a friend

April 15, 2012

The most exquisite gift
we have to share
is friendship
whatever else we might
choose to name it
for we long for one
we can trust

Each heart carries
its own dreams
and visions
of how that might
manifest
in a more
perfect world

Religions have carried
their golden keys
for centuries
to open the ancient
secrets
of the holy grail
we seek

Artists create visions
to ignite
our dreaming
and inspire us
to awaken
to a new world

So many have
endless
advice and theories
to offer
or a service to sell
to lift the veil
of awakening

Yet we forget
that deep inside
we hide
the potential to be
the friend
we have known
forever

The spirit flows
and rises
in the wave
of the sea of serenity
hidden
in the promise
of all creation

The Approaching Beloved…

April 12, 2012

deep Love feels
the quickening rhythm
of the heart
as the unseen
Beloved
approaches

a precious mist
of tears
clouds the eyes
glimmering as they
reflect the light
of the moon

the surrounding air
swoons
as a drifting hint
of musk
escapes from
the rustling
folds of silken longing

divine whispering
becomes
a sweet silent
music
heard only
in the soul

a seeking tenderness
discovers
the softness
of lips
yielding to
a rushing flare
of divine desire

the creative fire
of love
sends the doors
of heaven spinning
and swinging
open
to eternity

Invitation

April 8, 2012

Invitation

Every dawn is a new beginning
as we stand
before an unending sky
a blank page open to the pen
a canvas ready for the brush
an empty garden waiting for seeds
a womb yearning for the child
a mind listening for a new idea
an empty house built to be a home
a space waiting to be a vision
a silence seeking music
a heart a chalice formed for life
a soul a space to be a sea of light

every dawn cries out
with an invitation
to create
for a true friend
will forever
open a door
to more
and the heart will
answer
