All glory is thine, O Lord

  Mary kissing Jesus 001

In a mother’s heart

a secret opens

like the mystery

and flowering beauty

of spring,

when she tenderly

kisses her child,

she kisses the face of love,

and Mary felt

in her soul

that she was kissing

the face of God,

that the child in her arms

was the wonder

of the great I am

settling softly as a babe

in her arms.

There are moments we rise

beyond the endless words

perceiving and feeling

the delicate breath of a sigh

curling and weaving…

weightless…. unseen…

slipping into a flow of spirit……..

a secret entry

spinning soft emanations….

silken strands of purity

deeply intimate

 infinitely divine secrets

of belovedness….

approaching silently like fog

melting into whispers

of home

 

The soothing sigh of the Beloved

bewildering beauty of the beloved

There is a song ….
the words sing the sad story….
that the thrill is gone….
and what happens
when they no longer feel
the currents of desire …..
no longer feel able to see
someone or something with the eyes
of bewildering disorientation
which so many mistake for love…
 
Like earthly wine…
earthly love is a beginning….
opening the senses…
 
but when love comes in its purity arises…..
awakens……………..expands ……
and grants us divine vision….
……the thrill is forever new……
something lifts us
in the sheer lightness of Spirit….
delicately spun spreading..
gliding…………..sheer……..invisible wings…
orbs………..shimmering cloud…
catching the light..
bears us on the breath of love
 
When the Beloved gazes through
our earthly eyes
the solid illusion dissolves
and melts away…..
and a different seeing emerges…
…i call it “beholding” ……….
 
Behold…………the kingdom is at hand……..
the Beloved brushes by………
and touches with the softness of air
spirit to spirit
a movement of beauty……..
felt in the heart………….
that softens the soul
the soothing sound
of the sighs of creation 
love overflowing ……
shimmering strings of the heart
sing like the harp……….
quivering with music
only the Beloved can play

The flow of creative energy
through the heart and soul
and awakening mind
the sublime spark that activates
the soft brilliance
of the light that ignites
and illuminates
our vision
and perception of life
changes everything
~
We are reborn
in a thrilling moment
a lightning flash
setting loose an eternal chain
of sacramental moments
beholding the mysterious beauty
and source of a guiding love
~
Light becomes a beacon
a ray of the divine
a pure revelation
that opens the portals
of spirit
through a call of freedom
to experience
a renaissance and renewal
of our innocence.
~
We are launched into
an experience of beauty
through a veil
of tears
feeling the gaze
of love.
~
This is the Beloved
guiding us
into the infinite variation
of creation
of which we are the pinnacle
the reflection
the sun of a touchable sky
a holy echoing silence
the pulsing rhythm
of a divine heart
~
Beauty is the true nature
of being
and we will spend
the rest of our lives reaching
to express
and live the glory
of the light of love

A New World

A New World

Life flashes into being
blinding our eyes
leaving us wondering
where we are
and why we are here…

Paradise looms
in the hidden
corners
of our memory
and feelings
dance with the beguiling shadows
that awaken us at night

Breezes ruffle the hair
and loosen
our curls to feel
the sweet breath
of the Beloved
guiding us
to love as we are loved

Every cell is on alert
the skin becomes
a scroll
for the messages
of love rolling
off the fingertips
of God

The people’s psalms
may be a well
written cry for
the soothing palm
that quiets our fears
and wipes away
our tears

Every moment
contains
a taste of Eden’s fruit
and the fragrance
of a valley of flowers
to help us
remember paradise

We are summoned
to care
and to share
our new birth here
on earth
by remembering love

motherhood

……an amazing experience…..

wouldn’t have missed it for anything

divine feminine draws its pattern

from the secrets

deep within the great sea of that which gives birth to all life

coloring….forming…..empowering…….

…nurturing…

trusting the beloved to give it flavor and form

we cannot begin to imagine

 

the deepest secrets swim in the sweetness of the silkiness that lines the passage

through which we invite the magnificence of the beloved

to flow

and glide into the glory of the ultimate

receptivity and creativity

we call love

while the truth hovers far beyond our words

melting in the murmuring music

of the songs of our mystics

in the moonlight glowing

with luminescence

that summons

a tiny nightingale to serenade

the rose

to reveal the beauty

of the heavenly softness

of the petals

that open to the beloved’s

penetrating

entry into the soul

 

miracle enough to create form

and breathe life into a seed of shimmering light

and yet beyond the form

a greater mystery

is born as

a spirit rising from a deeper union

more delicate than wings

a sigh lighter than air

soft laughter

of lovers

quivering flame of essence

that does not burn

but vanishes

in silent awe into

the womb of divine mystery

opening to that which seeks to experience

and be touched by

eternal love

Beautiful Spirit of the Beloved

October 28, 2014

386  spirit traveler

“Spirit Traveler”  Painting by Rassouli

This sacred timeless moment
wears the face of love
as light curls around me
soft transparent tenderness
fills the room
spirit with spinning energy

My Beloved
is my sweet home
there is no waiting for words
to create what I feel
for love has turned from
its graceful flight
anointing my existence
with majestic
elegance
lifting the mystical veil
and placing a robe
of golden light around
my shoulders

Love comes in the night
expands in the dawn
and spreads
the glow of the beloved
in a burst of breathless splendor
before me and around me
within me
as a blazing world flames out
surrounding and flooding
everything
with a cooling celestial sea
of luminous light.

Whose eyes are these
who perceive
this glory
dwelling within me
beholding
such revelation

Who writes these words
to convey what human eyes
could never see
What spirit moves the life
within my womb

Who fills this cup with vintage wine
brimming and anointing
my grateful heart
reigning over my reality
with a crown and scepter
spun from a golden ray
of the sun

My maiden heart surrenders
to this Lord of Love in
humble adoration
and devotion
yet turns to face
the Beloved
soul to Soul
as i am swept like the wind
into moments of grace

No dream is this as I wander
in golden skies
of the Beloved’s eyes
aware of divine breath
breathing my own
rising and falling
rushing in and breathing out
in a sacred flow

Every last vestige of this
earthly life
falls into belovedness
to grant me
this glorious freedom
to dwell in this
heavenly heart
of God

The moment comes
when it comes
we watch and wait
and dream and
wander through valleys
and scale the walls
and mountains
that only seem to rise
between us
as we journey home

What kingdom awaits you
harbored in
your longing heart

What paradise
is circling
in your soul

How would the event
of your awakening
appear
to your eager eyes

O i implore you
to dare to reach
for the sweet
wilderness
beyond
your restless mind

What secrets
are veiled
in the hidden
rhythm
of your precious heart….

O Beloved it is you
that forms the dream
of paradise
through the grace
of the love
from which we come
and it is you
who rushes in
to guide us home

Oh Divining Light spilling from the night

October 22, 2014

 

10517605_10205193215217948_3030229511955670360_o.jpg spinning

Ohhhh divining light spilling from the night
creating wings and worlds
unfurling and flinging spheres
hurtling through untouched space
giving birth to brilliant virgin stars
drifting and tumbling in slow motion flight
beyond gravity and human boundaries
forming cosmic seas far from telescoping eyes
and launching pads and errant rocket sites
designing a timeless expanse through a secret dance
to royal dimensions out of range of hearing
a castling kingdom so endearing
only silence reigns and peace a gift of being
pure love a deeper way of seeing
surrendering a way of freeing
spin me in the glow of a mystic moon
far beyond this night of tears and dimming sight
into the clarity of thy swirling seeds of light
the kingdom of my own sweet knight
where everything is new and true
and we can choose to vanish into you

 

Song in the Night

October 20, 2014

Song in the Night

Pure love is the elegance
the pure essence
the fragrance and flowering
of the love
of the Beloved
the sweetest name of all names
opening our hearts
and souls
to the love
of an eternal spring

There is no place or time
that love
can not fill with grace
no troubles we could imagine
that love
could not transform

The language of love
flows from a poetry
of the heart
settling in the soul
arising in the morning sun
shining in each
sovereign ray to light our way

All creation sings
as we feel
the dancing sway
of love
the music of the sweet
song of the soul

Silence settles over
the inner life
the mystic night
a perfect shelter
and blessed sanctuary
we come
to feel and trust

The tenderness of love
touches
and moves our lives
from moment to moment
a constancy
of kindness flows
as a dearest friend

The Beloved takes our hands
holding them gently
gazing through eyes
softly affirming a deep love
freely given
to shelter and support
the gift of life now and always

The light of love blesses us
with vision and feeling
a transforming Joy
around our shoulders
in a flowing robe
of night
and glowing moonlight

Love is a river of music
the breath
that carries life
through a caressing breeze
the fragrance and essence
of a flowering love
blessing….blessing….blessing

Life unfolds behind a veil
of transparency
a pure lightness of being
free to create
and give birth to the cosmic
beauty of
the spirit of love

Let the spirit flow
in the circling winds
of vision
and the sweet surprise
of divine revelation

Feel the eternal nature
of this exquisite
grace
meant for all
calling us to live
in beauty and peace
