A Burst of Poetry...

I've been writing up a storm, and what came through last week (in a burst of a good cry and a wave of creative energy) were these two po-ems.... I hope you enjoy! (Please send comments- I love them!)

i came to know God

i came

to know God

i declared,

"i am here to find the love of my life."

i sat,

resolute,

with the fire,

through the smoke

vicious visions

trickery, victim stories, doubt, fear,

the illusion of discomfort

hand to my heart

hand on my belly

"i am Love," i said,

"you cannot sway me."

And then,

in the abode of my heart,

i found the Love of my Life.

I came to know God.

thank you

tonight

a conversation

broke my heart

open

i lost what i thought

i had wanted

i let go of

expectations

attachments

and what is left

is

a beautiful

friendship

the wails and sobs

warcking my body

move        move        move

the energy i had been

holding

so tightly

for so long

and now

i have      no idea

about        anything

other than

i love

and

i am here to Love

it is not always easy

for this

little mind

to accept its

Assignment

to give up

to let go

every      moment

of

every

day

continually

letting go

of all i thought

i had wanted

what      a      gift

this

heart        break

this

flower

in my chest

bursts        with grief

and

blossoms        forth

in the most beautiful

hues of pink and green

i have ever seen

i get

to let go        and live

now

and now

and now

and when i forget

what i am here for,

i get

to let go

again

again

again
