of the ever changing seasons

in a moment of glory

A Cathedral of Silence

02-24-graceofalpha

It seems I have always

written poetry

that moves my spirit beyond

time and space into a realm

far beyond any words

that could ever truly tell

the story of the glory

of what it reveals to me

It comes as a soft rushing wind

that bursts forth

like a fresh spring of music

comes as a calling

into a kingdom of light

a mystical journey inward

where I can listen

to the songs of the soul

I feel an enchanting beauty

rising like the enchanting mist

from a flowing river

an unseen serenade

spilling from a surrendering love

glowing in the breaking open

of the prism of my heart

There is a deep gifting of God

that swirls and sweeps and shelters

the soul

plunging my spirit

into the presence

of a marvelous silence

glistening like

the play of light on water

or perhaps in the artistic

revelations of a dream

I am cloaked in invisibility

and lost in a mystery

that somehow protects

what I am helpless

to explain

except to cry out

and share the grace

to sing and sing and sing

of the greatest love

that I have ever known

Dance of Love

Oh painters, poets, singers,
artists of the soul.
playing in the particles of life,
let the quivering molecules
of your being
wade in the energy of your
hidden laughter.

Become masters of the medium
of love
and splash your kisses
across the sky!
Dip your brushes in your hearts
and create a vision
of the beauty crouching
within you,
ready to spring into life
as something new.

Let the winds of spirit blow
away the clouds
that cover your longing
for freedom.

Dress your precious life in
the colors of your soul
and let the wondrous visions
flow into a stream of love.

Be an invitation, like the dawn,
coaxing and calling
us all to dance with the day,
to play, to sing,
to let the light of the sun make us
gleam and glow.

Let your sleeping heart awaken
and push through the soil
of the body and mind
to be born again and again and again.

Let your sweet discovery
bloom in wonder.
Greet the blossoms with shouts of joy,
as the petals of tenderness
surround you in a robe of rainbows
and dripping wonder.

Be like Joseph in his coat
of many colors
with eyes that see the Pharaoh’s dreams
and ears that hear the songs of the night
locked in silence, weeping to be known.

Let the caressing touch of spirit
set you free
to be, to live, to move, to flow,
and to create,
again and again and again.

Take my hand and dance me
into the mystery and
music of you.

Feel the portal of Love opening within you

revelation-by-mahmoud-farshchian-1346030483_org (1)

When we awaken..
whenever it is..
however it happens..
we feel a Presence
calling to us..
a summoning
to a deeper life..
some try to name
it in language..
some in silence
and others in song..
through the wonder
of rhythm..
a compassionate act..
or a unique sharing of love..

We feel the flow of energy
that continues to create
on this earth
and give form to life..
and we open
to a deeper way of being..
a sacred listening..
let it whisper to the heart..
and bring light
to the soul..
and we are changed..

Love forever seeks
the revelation
of that which brings awareness
to the light of our being..

This is that greatest love
in all the world
that gift that gives meaning
to every life and breath
moment by moment..

It is for everyone..
the sweet promise
of God..

The spiritual life creating itself……..

I think it is quite natural to grow quieter 

and to live in a kind of peace

in these later years

when we truly come to know

the companioning Beloved

appearing and disappearing

in moments of beauty

ever inventive and creative

as relationships that are truly alive 

seem to be

 

Our energy can rise and fall

but that which sustains our inner life 

flows with a lightness

and grace of being

and is constantly creating

I am deeply involved

and feel a wonderful belonging

to the Beloved

to God Alone in the sense

that Everything is God to me

there is nothing that exists that is real to me

 except for that which carries that glow

..the rest is illusion..

..simply an identity we build for ourselves..

in the world

…making a name for who we are…

..and yet..

even that is part of the journey

Deep down….I know

that the “Presence is in all life”

….but many are not aware

or consistently aware enough to know how that feels

or how to commune with it

…or to sacrifice the life.. 

they are more familiar with……and would like to control

I am sort of a hearth

…of home…

……a living stone………

…where one can touch base and go on about their life…

..a promise of love and acceptance…

….a heart that sees the inner beauty of the soul…

…..here if they desire to make a connection…

…and here if they don’t…

…..alone with God as the Beloved….

..the Lord is my Shepherd..

…there is nothing I shall want..

We sort of create the life we want

.. choice by choice by choice..

..moment by moment..

God is a ravishing Grace
A Radiant Guide
A Silent Muse
All the words in the world could never capture
 
the divine purity and sweetness
 
of the quiet spaces of the intimacy 
 
of an Infinite Beloved..
 
 
 
Surrendering is a song we write between us..

Spirit

Spirit

Glorious lightness of being
rising and expanding
moving as softly as the dawn
invisibly gliding silence
spreading source of creation
activating life

free to take any form
any color
or fragrance
any sound or feeling
to appear and disappear
leaving afterglow
of love
in flow of breath
or
shifting whispering breeze

brushing lips
and ships
dazzling eyes
with
a playful surprise
caressing grace
touching an upturned face
melting my words
as everything
is hidden
in the spirit
of Beloved
