today...

I walked the hours out
along the esplanade...

the body...

rejoicing
in
returning
strength

everywhere...

encompassed
by this...

great circle...

of
horizon's rim...

scribed by the waters edge... blue fading into blue


one
image

cleft in two...

by insubstantial
glaciers...

white
cumulus...

distant
snowfields of the gods...

and turning round...

it seems...

in this
unmoving eye...

was seen

the city's silhouette
in miniature...

unpeopled
at this distance...

sweeping 'cross
the compass
of
My
vision...

once round the world...

again
in view....

sand and sea
and
ships and sails...

and sentinels...

upon the shore...

monuments to long dead heroes...

passed by
without a thought,,,

by
these images of men...

an ever shifting

fleeting
likeness...

of
Love's

One
true
perfection...

and straight ahead
the path...

that
for
a moment...

converges to a point...

widening
with perspective's eye
to pass beyond
these
unseen shoulders

cracked lines
appearing...

lengthening

and
moving
down
beyond
My
feet...

swallowed by the void...

in which
My footfall
echoes

unwinding
now...

the vista
of a pier..

water almost still...

ripples playing on the surface...

eddies of
a
gentle breeze...

refracting sunlight
from an unseen sun...

(felt warm
upon an unseen face)...

creating
an apparent ever moving net...

electric yellow
threads...

interlaced
across the terraced sand
that rises
from pellucid depths...

to meet
the feet of children

splashing away
their childhood
in
the ocean..

of delight...

everywhere
the light
of...

Love

Hi Michael

The words

"the body...

rejoicing
in
returning
strength
"

make me wonder whether you're recovering from illness?

Are you (as the body of course) well?

ahhh yes... thank you leo... I've recently had an operation on my back and after 8 months I am now relatively free of pain... getting better and stronger every day... as I hope heron is too after his accident... though it seems he has not been around for a while...

how blest...

to live as a man... in space and time it seems... fully without pretence... to feel pain and suffering and joy and pleasure and desire... not as enemies... but as blessing...

and yet to know all these worlds as one... eternal... unchanging

and beyond (sorry heron... smile) all worlds... to simply 'be'... neither awake nor asleep... neither dreaming nor not dreaming...

dear leo... you too are a blessing... as are all my friends on this wonder full site...

Love

"everywhere
the light
of...

Love"



Last Night

Last night
when the stars fell
I breathed deep the Silence and
empty room
You embraced my presence...

... I was surrounded by Your absence
and
I knew You were inside me
as the ecstasy
welled up,
flowing over
through and into
a deep sleep

I am alone
with Your bliss.

Anna ,

The stars fell yesterday ?

No wonder sunyata has filled me.

And how could you be alone when

the sky , the empty sky was there to fill you with bliss ?

emptiness surrounding me
a star of joy shining
