The essence of pure love..

April 6, 2017
Angel of Love
The essence of Spirit
and pure love lingers as
the fragrance of God
a veil of beauty and breath
*
for the very air is sweetened
by the loving sighs of God
lifting us into the flight
and height
of eternal rising….
*
An angelic transparency of Love
forms from the delicacy
of Spirit
that we might behold
the lightness
and caressing tenderness
of our ethereal being….

“Angel of Love”

the Unseen beauty of God

April 3, 2017
Rassouli_The_Arrival
When we truly arrive in that vast space
of who we are in a purity of being
as we are created to be
.
we are the living beauty of an expanding sanctuary
we are life aware of itself
fluid
changing
we are the flow of a shifting
 
transparency 
 
of spirit
 
the bliss of an unseen kiss
 
felt in the
 
 rising mist of existence
dissolving in the pure eternal joy
of this eternal moment
of
a thrillingly transforming
ever changing
wonder……

delicacy of flow of spirit

April 1, 2017

Rainbow Falls

delicacy of flow

i write as i live
in an energizing
stream
of light and breath
for love
has its own
momentum
 *
we feel the rhythm
of the heart
for we are all
contained
in the music
of a larger heart
 *
a stream of energy
simply flows where it goes
and the same light
dances on the prairie
as on the ripples
and waves of the sea
in which we are all embraced
 *
the same source dances us
into the day
the same pulse of life
beats in all awakening hearts
and the same breath
breathes us into being
 *
the music of the heart
rises from the sweep and touch
of divine fingers
and the light that circles there
is as rich and golden
as the pure light pouring
through the sun
 *
when the heart begins to sing
the song emerges
springing from joy
whether in the darkness of night
or the glow of morning
for it opens
from within that greater heart
and music flows
from a glorious mystery
no one
can truly name
 *
music is always new
like the breath
no matter how it sounds
to another
for love is encoded
with a beauty only the heart
can recognize
and only unseen eyes
can behold
 *
words dance out of the darkness
like our lives dance
and swirl in the curls
of beauty
that have entrapped mystics
through the ages
and time stands still
and falls away as a measure
that has no meaning
to the heart
 *
there is no such thing
as separation
to the pulsing heart
of one abiding in the mystery
that listens
to all longing hearts
of countless beings
who have sweetly surrendered
their boundaries
to love
right here on earth
 *
i am not a poet
in the sense of category
but the poetry of the heart
has taken command
over the gardens that grow
from my fingers
each one brushing
and freely stroking the keys
or caressing the pen
with love
 *
everything falls from a source
beyond my ability
to describe or control
it tumbles like a waterfall
into the fall line
of a timeless stream
energizing
this life
moment by moment
 *
all the histories of all
of the faces and names
ultimately melt
in the dancing flames
of the beloved
and only the one
who sustains
my heart remains
 *
this sweet existence
is the perfect
transparency
for this invisible flame
as the shimmering wings
of poetic vision
are carried by the light
of life itself
 *

delicacy of flow of the spirit of belovedness

as it increases in beauty

the more humbling it is

the more aware we become of how little we are

in the presence of pure love

the One who graces us with the gifts

of light and mercy

of living water

of glory

always creating

and spreading beauty

beneath our feet

and before our eyes

through our hands

flowing through our heart

and soul

and spirit

our higher mind

our breath and life itself

ultimately

we surrender it all to mystery

and the Source of the eternal spring

the beloved’s nature

is to give and give

out of the pure Joy of giving..

Eternal Flow by Rassouli

 

Melting into camellias
and apple blossoms, azaleas
and violets in the grass..
daisies and lilacs
and swaying willow trees..
the air filled with fragrance,
birds nesting and windows open,
basking in the warmth of the sun
wandering in wildflowers
the breeze ruffling feathers
and tossing curls… blue skies..
as the gardener kneels in the soft earth
moist with morning dew…
the plum trees hum with bees
seeking sweetness..
touching and being touched by
the beloved in thousands of ways..
blessed by spirit and the flow
of an eternal spring
in my heart…..

The Depth of Simplicity

The Depth of Simplicity

 

The golden alchemy of divine intention

touches the spaces beyond the sky

where creation begins

where pure love manifests

in the secrets

of imagination and visioning

empowered by the grace

of all giving

made possible by the Spirit

of All Beginning

 

Surrender into the will of a creator

of beauty and truth

that desires relationship

with each

and every life

trusting that love seeks

our well being

and transforms us

to flow

in the gentle freedom

of the winds

and throbbing force

that moves

the sea

lifts the water

into waves

and incites the heart

to move our lifeblood as the rivers

are empowered

to flow to their source

 

Feel the warm breath that sighs

arising from life itself

like a spring opening

the earth

or

falling like a gentle rain

of loving tears

anointing the orbs

in which

we live and have

our being

 

There is a beauty beyond

this existence

casting a veil of

transparency

through

the membranes of vision

only pure love

can see

 

Only faith can give us sight

to see the light

from a mystical night

that changes us

an elusive mystery

flowing

silently and eternally

within what is

most natural

and true

within the spirit

of being

touching us

to feel the music

of God

The Light of Grace..

“Gate of Heaven”  Painting by Rassouli

 

The Light of Grace…
Light is infinite in its variations as it touches earth
playing with the wind upon the water
dancing in the leaves
hanging stars in the trees
revealing its hidden colors in a rainbow
transparent and luminous
golden in lighting the world
a sentinel through the night
a beacon to guide our way
a flowering gateway to the eternal
delicate wings of light
inspiring flight of imagination
like a dove of heaven
soaring and circling the moon….
a gentle breeze brushing our lips
as the mysterious kiss of the beloved…

Silent Song of Light

March 11, 2017

12378027_904719232945054_4506019817146331913_o.jpg light falls on the landscape

 

Mystery whispers its story
in silence to those who listen
with an open heart and a soul
surrendered to pure love
without a desire to possess its secrets..
yet lives to sing the beauty..
Flashing lightning illuminates
a momentary vision
in the energy of a storm
the heart is forever awake keeping a vigil
beholding the winds of change..
the shifting seas and turbulent skies
the deep power and sacred flow
of creation brings serenity and balance
to this turning sphere of existence
cradling us in the glowing aura
of a smiling moon sharing
and spreading a song of peace
across the earth….

a deep sigh of the soul

March 4, 2017
0-veil-of-mystery1
the unveiling of a deep spiraling sigh of the soul…
 *
The precious mystery is an ever expanding
awareness….a wind
a breath………a spirit
forever creating…
sweeping the sky and beyond….
gathering the secret
in every seed and sperm
in every seeing star
in stillness
in the transparency of light
in a luminous glow
without a name or form
a flow of movement which cannot be seen
or detected or captured…
the mystery of infinite beauty
that gives itself
as a voluminous invisibility
forever surrendering everything
that ever was or is…splitting the secret
of existence into particles
that dissolve and melt like music
once it finds the air
that silently consents to contain its flight
*
the mystery gathers
the disappearing mist of tears
and the essence of laughter
the sweetness of a smile
the silence of the sea
the secret of sight
the eternal light
 *
leaving a wispy hint of a
 subtle fragrance of every glory
hidden in
 beauty that dazzles
the mind
and frees the spirit
*
a feathering freedom that hides in the
gentle wake of a falling feather
in the wake
of a lover’s breath
or in the wake of only the purity of thought
not the thought itself
*
the tremulous quivering flow
of an elusive spiraling
rising joy
when spirit touches
spirit
and all that is
is known as
 beloved

birthing a holy moment

February 25, 2017
img_1792-jpg-kedarnath
~
A holy moment touching the essence of intimacy…
~
Is there anything in a word
that can be mined by the heart
to guide my lips to dare to speak
or write of God…
as I feel and experience
and live such an effusive mystery..
 ~
to presume to free the flow of pure love
or a deep kindness looking
for a gentle expression
in the sweet space where I live
and move have my being..
 ~
or does the treasure dwell
beyond form and create
a living Word around this stirring
swirling awareness of beauty..
 ~
When I feel the sweet rising
of a song of feeling
searching for the grace to soar
on a benevolent breeze
or the warm breath of a sigh
I can only trust the beloved
to set it free
to carry it to thee..
 ~
a soft smiling presence
who cares enough
to listen to the sacred spreading
of the wings of my longing
to share in the glorious expanding
of a garden that welcomes
the sharing of a loving flow
from inside this glow
that awakens me…

A Divine Alchemy

holy presence
flame of spirit flaring
in a sacred moment…
~
inspiring a creative flow
~
and the writing comes
as an afterglow
spiraling
through
a hushed silence
a curling awareness
gently swirling in the whiteness
of a vast spacelessness
that is
beyond description
~
yet something reaches for it
to touch the passing
of
an eternal flow
the brush of gentleness
moving on a most delicate
lifegiving breath
the blessing of caressing holiness
a rushing spring of purity
tingling and singing energy that awakens
and guides the spirit
into a clearing
 of blossoming meadows
an elusive fragrance of emanating
rising essence of love
a tear clinging to an eyelash
that catches the light
~
everything else vanishes..
disappears in tears
and soft laughter
a radiance
from a deep abiding joy
