A Poem for your Friday


At hand and among you – tangible and touchable.

An invitation – near and knowable.

Streams unveil that ease is My pace.

Gladdening light, My soil and vase.

“Like this.” “Like this.” “Like this.” “Like this.”

Fire, flowers, and flow insists.

Smile speaks Me.

“Beauty” mirrors Me.

“I Am”.

Are you?

Vacant horizon
A mysterious welcome home
Learn to love thee

Behind us the known
The tasting of touch, the feeling of sounds
Eyes unwrap ahead
Who would want to turn around?

LTMP Episode 19: Ludicrously Happy.

Episode 18 is a short and sweet riff  on this excerpt below from one of Rumi’s poems that I read this week and had to share!

Friends, we are traveling together.
Throw off your tiredness. Let me show you
one tiny spot of the beauty that cannot be spoken.
I am like an ant that has gotten into the granary,
ludicrously happy, and trying to lug out
a grain that is way too big.
