DustLove (day 380)

we're made of It
and It shows
It sticks to us
when we touch It
or It touches us
we can't wash It
away even when It
hurts
the Dust
from which we come
to which we return
is Love.

VaLENTine's Day (day 379)

apparently St. Valentine
returned to the Dust
from which he came
embracing his mortality
engaging his humanity
for the sake
of the immortality
of Love
embodying the Divinity
of that Dust
and Love
crosses and hearts
One and same.

Thanks.

Epiphanies (day 378)

within the cracks
between the lines
behind the scenes
lie the signs
of startling truths
and stunning graces
if we open
senses and spaces
eyes to see
ears to hear
minds to perceive
hearts to receive
Epiphanies
all
around

Amen.

Trust (day 377)

hoping
to be
talked down
the cliff
and safely
onto the shore


knowing
that diving
off the
edge into
the darkest
depths of
frozen fear
is the Way
to uncover
the lovelier sight
the brighter Light
of Beloved Being...

(Trust.)

first flip (day 376)

imagining
Your first flip
into the fullness
of our flesh
the floodplains
of our fears
furrowing beneath
floundering facades
of false faces
into our fragile foundation
then surging up
splashing the surface
shining from within
a shimmering
Spirited
Self

Yes!

high dive (day 375)

remembering
the high dive
at the pool
when i was five
and my dive
became a fall
into a flop
upon my belly
turning my front
into a brickwall
fire engine red
feeling almost dead
glad to be alive...

Still!

begin (day 374)

the same sleep
encrusting my eyes
in new ways
the same sun
enveloping the horizon
with new rays
the same fears
encroaching my mind
with new grey
the same Love
embracing my heart
this new day

i
begin
again

Amen.
