Among the Sounds, Haiku

pressing onward, love

reaches out, leading us up

higher vibration

high upon mountains

thoughts screaming into the breeze

echo upon air

sparkling in twilight

revealing inner beauty

eyes before me dance

waves cascade crisply

lifting our essence higher

together, as one

in simple presence

carried emotion pulses,

words fail to explain

under falling skies

hearts along a path converge

stirring embers within

in service to self

no virtue harder attained

practiced detachment

premeditated

an effortless stroke defers

masterful action

Let It Be

let our love be as the water

receding to accretion

awakening & deep.

let our love be as the wind

open, wild and wide

as it bears us into forever.

let our love be as the earth

firm below the falls of feet

treading softly among dreams.

let our love be as the fire

breathing to live without end

as it illuminates our way.

Rubaiyat

Long the travels made in the night

Long the farewells in early light

Long the silence in hours cost

Before these dreams were made to fight

Lines made deep, then shallow, then crossed

Progress taken for gain, some lost

Along the path, where tears were shed

In soothing fires, fueled on exhaust

Now passion reigns within the head

Desire quelled, the heart like lead

Begins to shift, indeed, unfold

Gaining nourishment on love fed

To blossom revealing pure gold

To become the stories untold

Clearing away darkness to shine

Embracing the way to be bold

Day 17: Quintillae

Beneath the warm glow of the sun

Floating in seas of green and dun

As leaves wave gently in the breeze

Time seems to grow slow, almost to freeze

In the moment, the mind sees as one

Chirping here and now chirping there

Flitting and flighting as I stare

What wondrous little creatures these

Who drift aloft upon the breeze

Easing worries, consumed by care

Quietly as breath beats along

Joining to heart, singing its song

Sensation arises in waves

Opeing minds eye to amaze

Pure visions of life to prolong

Day 16: Pushkin Sonnet

As I idle away in a daydream

Tracing the origins of emotion

An exercise to others that may seem

Excess, stems from a lack of devotion.

Whether believing in dest’ny or fate

In true reflections do we elevate

In moments when we create history

The motive of souls remain mystery

The way eyes sparkled & danced in the light

When she first planted love’s seed in my chest

The words unspoken, our journey, my quest.

Clearly there was something about that night

If not love at first sight, surely a start

A light in the dark, her place in my heart

Day: 15 Ottava Rima

Sunlight running along in the shade

Dancing past shadows on grass through leaves

Crashing off concrete structures we made

Glancing last past, her chest as it heaves.

Into electric photons now trade

Pulsing through neurons, instants, they weave,

Spiral collections, memories fade.

Stopping existence, if only to breathe.

Day 14: Nocturna

Laying awake in the darkness alone

Beneath a sky blanketed bright by stars

Travelling light over such distance thrown

To dance across vision, stories unfold.

Beasts eyeing queens nearby hunters with scars

Young maidens enchained, seek those heroes bold

Saying how goes, as above so below.

The places we know, the faces were ours

Fading now softly in low eastern glow
