Today-I woke….

Today I woke falling.

Reaching for you.

But you’d gone already

You were there right in front of me

But you’d already pushed me

Out.

Today I woke looking for the

Hand, the person I hold so

Closely to my heart

But you’d gone and I’m falling.

Looking East

20130330-061417.jpg

As the morning light chases the night from my head and heart, I’m reminded of the dawn of a new day.
How every day has the chance at greatness,peace and wonder. As do all of you.
Each of our lives loosely connected by an invisible thread some feathered by the heart others by the head but all connected of one reason or another.
The gift of perception is one of the most beautiful gifts this universe has to bestow upon us, it can turn a bad day good a good day great and the mundane a new adventure. I choose to be free of guilt today. I will enjoy my coffee by my cradle light fire and watch the sunrise.
Listen to my symphony of frogs and crickets give way to the day and be replaced be the chirps of birds and the hum of the city below. I will love fully, laugh with no hindrance and cry freely.
“Though love be a day and life be nothing , I shall not stop kissing” E.E.Cummings.

May the day greet you with open arms, fill your hearts with love, take the pain of the day from your body and mind and guide you gently on your paths.

Namaste

What’s in a name

I have no strength today for my heart grieves. The pain of life and of feeling so deeply and passionately leave me weak. Like the darkest of night I claw through the abyss only to find sorrow entrenched in every crevasse of my soul. Tears of pain flow like rivers who never meet the sea. In trembling shell of borrowed beast, I grieve. I grieve. I grieve for another’s pain who has captivated me so. What’s in a name.?
Mine to speak it out loud does it make me real, permanent or plastic. Does it echo through the ages to history’s past.

Today I truly do feed the ravens as I have for a thousand-thousand fold. For today I grieve for another. Today I cry for sanctum.
Benjamin.
