love blooms (in) waking death

love blooms (in) waking death

standing in wake
of the trembling tide,
holding her weight
though drowning inside

but love cannot sink
or be cast aside
the whole of it blooms
never to die.

the promise

the promise

the wind blows through the trees

like your breath on my neck

warm, exhilarating, full of love

I kiss it with my hand,

raised high to the blue

in our lips' moist, tender stead

your skin does not touch mine

but alone I am not

every silence whispers your love

and every moment

holds the promise

of home.

She wields a bow without arrows.

She wields a bow without arrows.

In the darkness round she's found
carrying her bow of rain
not sleet or snow or fire but
all the colors that she's gained

she caught them tender one by one
each sacred, brilliant hue
and yet she felt them all at once
making them whole to give to you

so now the loving bow does lay
between your precious palms
always home it guides your grace,
through deepest darkness, into love.

white canvas.

white canvas, find your core.

who are we

when we're all alone

no loved ones there beside us

or family to define us.

must find our sacred peace

let inner strength defeat

the call of loneliness

resist its haunting echoes.

love lives in the grottos

of your soul

let it take hold.

the truest currency.

the truest currency.

don't fall into the trap.
life is yours.
in it, be moneyless,
boundless, rootless
if you dare.

but never, ever,
be loveless.
dare to love.
every day.
every moment.

for love is life's
true currency.
never false,
love runs deep,
but never dry.

grows at my feet.

the only green for me
grows at my feet.

the world
crying out
for easy answers
dies young or old
either way it comes
from cancer.

my brothers
grow to think
money's a diet
but let it burn
life won't start
until you try it.

earth's green
isn't printed
on your papers
it blooms forth
from the ground,
can't escape her.

Together they saw

earth rise to the call

of love.

Dark forest

was where he found

her resting gently

upon the ground.


so fast asleep

but saw her breath

was much too weak.


he knelt his frame

touching her heart

and wake she came.

Sitting straight

up with her lips

to each his eyes

she gave a kiss.

That moment

they watched dark fall

from the forest:

light claimed it all.

one day...

one day you'll sleep

by my side.

the smile

of yours that

breaks and mends

my heart

I felt

crushed and whole

the moment of

its start

its lines

trace self and

earth as if


it shines

through the black

with light of

the sun.

the beautiful breaking of two.

the beautiful breaking of two.

the rain

so heavily it came

down upon that afternoon

we sat quietly inside

the cafe with our eyes

cast down, ordering food

but we knew.

outside we embraced

keeping warmth from the race

of rain, as the heat slowly flew

looking into your eyes

I knew the truth and the lies

of tomorrow, our time was through

and I knew.

Sweet earth and gentle ground,

Hideaway love.

Hideaway love.

I want to love
with all I am.
But you can't have
all of my love.

It hurts, hiding
part of me away
when I want
to freely love you.

But I will hide away.
I will hide myself,
for you. Sweet you.
I will hide to have you.

I am hidden.
Do I have you?

A glow...

A glow (in the deepest darkest forest).

you fell
you fell from the grace
of their hearts;
but you fell
you fell into my arms.

these will
these will carry you through
the black forest;
and we will
we will hear earth's delicate chorus.

it sings
songs of plentiful love
that I bring;
can you feel
how these arms give to you everything.

the lips you'll never kiss.

you're not worthy of these lips.
the strength they hold
the love they kiss.

not deep enough to seek them
or real enough to feel them.

you're falsehood
you're the surface.

and I'm beneath
the sweet abyss.

our molecules and fate.

our molecules and fate.

there's a moment.

the sliding doors, luggage in hand

and mine in your other.

walking forward

into future, fast-paced but hesitant,

our faces silent together,

but we're together.

in the solace of each other we can

face the black frontier.

a whole unit,

fingers entwined as we stand

at the gate to go over.

and time, space

slowly flow between our hands

until your face is all but covered.

and there's a moment

beyond the pass when even separate

we're still partners

in the darkness.

but in that moment far far beyond the gate

when your face is altered

into emptiness,

my molecules almost deteriorate,

the spirit promptly falters.

and how strange it feels

to be one second a we facing fate

and next an I, a loner in need of shelter

from the emptiness, too late.

a heart that hates
is born to love.

for any person
you may have
the capacity to hate,
you also have
the capacity
to love.

the heart
that holds
enough passion
enough conviction
to live in hatred,
also holds
the gift of love

you need
only decide
to let go of
the hate
and give into
the love.

todos. iluminados.

todos. iluminados.

the golden, the beautiful,

the moon, so big and ripe.

we see it, don't claim it,

our eyes fill with delight.

the quiet, the fruitful,

the moon, it burns so bright.

hush now, don't wake it,

we dream in shadow's light.

the moment, the blissful,

the moon, it ends our plight.

we touch it, regive it,

eternity's tonight.

nothing hurts when we know love.

nothing hurts
when we know love.

they are in us,
always with us,
ever-around us.

the souls
that passed
so long ago.

we need only think of them
look within, feel them.
they never passed, never left.

you, too,
will never leave
as long as
you love.

our knowing is born of love,
our connections built of love.

learn to love,
wholly love,
and all is yours.

Being you: alone and together.

Being you: alone and together.

Being alone
is never like being
with someone else.

you are free to be
the truest you:

silent as long as you please.
speaking your heart boundlessly.
full of quirks, calm and pure and sweet.

We need to find the people
who bring out
the truest us,
even when
we're not alone.

You're not alone
on the road
to find them.

passing through: paintings, walls, and childhood.

passing through:
paintings, walls, and childhood.

we walked on water
in the painting on the wall.
tiny footsteps of our minds
twisted about the peeling mural.

we knew the world by heart
curving road and riverbrook,
farmhouse with the watermill,
so many glances that we took.

we lived a thousand lifetimes
in the painted paradise.
the mountains as the backdrop,
trees tracing, birds at highest heights.

we floated through the world
time and time again.
as if the repetition ensured
our childhood would never end.

He helped me walk through the darkness

through every shade of the abyss

twilight, midnight, dark night

through the infinite tinieblas;

He washed away heart's blackness

brought out sky's tenderness

holding tight, feeling right

la luna y estrellas.

lonely girl, lovely star

lonely girl, lovely star

the grass to my back,

prickled yet smoothed,

gives me cool the skies lack

melody to my ears,

raged yet calmed,

musters feelings like years

eyes to the sky,

focused yet wandered,

find the star meant for I

you to my heart,

fogged yet cleared,

flew to me from the start

call to my you,

despaired yet enchanted,

I sang words so true

arms to your heaven,

flailed yet floated,

beg you to hold them

lips to the star,

trembled yet kissed,

feel you where you are

and time to our mind,

famous yet foolish,

melts away from our kind.
