To Dance With Love


Part I ~~ Memory

we were Lovers once
we met in erotic
hollows in our pores
we were hungry then,
knelt in each other's presence
and ate the last
skin of separation
the truth ~~
that was not our only truth,
ascending,
we were Eastern and Western Dragons
that Day
and fragile butterfly wings that
steely Night,
descending
I came to you
empty-handed and
you severed me with your
Sword of Duality
when our Poet words no longer fit
in the empty sky of our Soul's
nothingness,
we fell
obliging
temptation
and here we ended
in One-noOne
...and I'm dancing as fast as I can
into an alternate reality
that questions not
why we found Words
and Silences
and how Love begins
and seems to end
... Formless
... Dreamless
... Hopelessly in Love
... In our Lover's Heart



Part 2 ~~ Creation


I shall create Love
today
give it Your eyes to see with
like an eagle
as he drifts in the speechless wind,
soaring,
falling.

I shall call You
an Unknown God
and You will rest in meditation
a lotus of 10000 petals
in the heart of Krishna
in the body of
Shiva and Shakti
eternal dancers
of our One Soul

I shall call forth Your Being
from the silence of the cosmos
and we shall touch one another
in the depths of our merging
knowing secrets
spilling
creation

We shall be Lovers before this day
is done...

We have been kissed by grace.



Part 3 ~~ Being, This Moment This Time This Place


We have come together now,
This moment
This empty space of awareness,
We are shaped, fashioned from the distance of tentacles,
or 10 million arms and legs,
Intertwined,
Far reaching
The sound of hollow reeds,
These testaments and reverberation of words,
Like saffron curtains,
Fit the night-filled jasmine,
The Tibetan gong;

We fall into one another's Being
we slide like the four-leafed clover taste of honey and
We dare to leap like wild horses, free as Pegasus
In the canyons of the sky,
Breathless on Arunachala,
In the residual tears of the ocean as
The waves lift us to the
Arms of the Beloved,
One kiss
One shore.

Smiles,

echoes...

ahhh. YES!!!

Part 5 from an old poem called Words



V.

It was the night
when all colours abandoned me
Oh yes,
it was this night
this dark dark night when I lost Love,
or found love,
or thought I had,
and I wanted to die for my brokenness,
and in my heart
in my fervent prayer
I could not live without Love,
not even
for my next breath,
Yes,
I was this wretchedness,
I was cast out,
yet some unknown shore called--
called to me from deep within my despair,
I listened
I heard something--
in its vagueness, in its
familiarity--
a gentleness,
I could not dismiss
I could not deafen my ear
I could not close my heart,
turn my back...
walk away...
I had nowhere else to go.

...and so,
I recognized this sound,
an ancient echo...
...my own yearning...
a distant memory of my Soul's longing
and I noticed
I had reached the other side...
Yes, I had been drowning
and only the Light called to me,
had called me Home.

...and the light was the sound of Infinity.



Love to All,
All to Love,

Anna
