AWAKE IN HER LOVE

You will wake one day and find
that the weary ways are gone,
replaced by the growing needs
to at once embrace the unheard!

In the silent wonder of her ways
nothing lies beyond except us,
who fail to acknowledge things
which cannot be touched, stored

in the ever growing vaults of time.
An acceptance of all that it is,
of all that we can be, all we are,
lies at the opening of a new way.

The way towards the place of her
is not a place for all, as the fear
which freezes us enchants us too,
in equally profound and true ways.

Yet in being beyond in her silence,
listening, seeing, without it’s words,
there remains a slim opening of time;
a courage requiring a deep intimacy

that will touch without touching;
A feeling beyond words, within us;
A place beyond thought, that flows;
A wisdom from a silent non thought.

In the words that come from her
she has little to say, which has not
already been spoken before to us.
Her words are simple and profound

And filled with an overflowing awe
in our humanity which blesses us all
without ever penetrating too deep:
Her breath filled full with loves power.
