Did I say?

image

Hold on till the wings could keep
And the claws could hold;
That moment erases space
Between you and me,
Ignoring the high up in the sky
And deep down the roots;
Name the many emotions
Or may be the mundane;
Perceptions differ and defer….
Did I say,
“How beautiful it looks up from here
Where  blames and claims exist not?”
Did I say,
“What it takes to be alive
Where I enjoy my every breath?”
Did I say,
“Where?”
Into the unknown.

Here and Now

image

The dandelion survived wind
While the surfer maneuvered,
Riding the waves fearlessly
Overcoming space and time
In here and now.

As I sat watching the conqueror on surfboard,
Counting the rise and fall
And the policing seagulls,
My mind invited Jonathan, Bach’s Seagull
‘There is no other.’

Unfolds

image

Unfolds the rose bud
Each layer double coloured;
The next day fades
Petals pale and fragrance bailed.
The pollen a bright yellow
Tender to touch
Puzzles life to life.
“Pluck me not for I live
Another day
As the sun carasses me
And the wind kisses me.”
The older rose in reflection,
“I am beautiful
And an enduring beauty for days
I am love.”
Amazed at the passing thoughts,
I feel the flowers and reflect
In depth on the essentials
Live beautifully to love unconditionally.
