One Breath at a Time

20150314_102144_Richtone(HDR)

When the intensity of love drives us

the longing for a journey just beginning

our love becomes the universe with eyes

deeper than the stars, surpassing our limits.

So we can see far beyond our souls, past the doubt

of who we are, and our questions

become answered quietly,

one breath

at a time.

Poetry

Mountains and Rivers 131

Prophets and kings may come and go

but poetry is a testimony of the living

the breathing of the soul,

the language of love,

of eternity

the wild horses

of the heart

set free.

       

      

P.S. I’m in a writing and sharing mood, so you will see a few more posts from over the next few days!

If I Am the Sky

Oceans 807

This is what I really wanted to give you,

a burning horizon spanning eternity

it’s how I feel about us

holding onto each other

as if there is no time.

If I am the sky

then you are the ocean.

From the Beginning

Winter Snow 017

It seems like I have always loved you

from the beginning, when time was made

the creation of snow and fire,

through the heavens and beyond, our love

living but softer now, a gentle blanket covering,

falling on us like a silent snow awakening.

Knowing each other, we see the beginning

and the end, our souls alive and visible

so may our embers always burn steady

while our love still covers us

like a gentle snow, until

it is our time

to depart.

We will still love

each other

but in

eternity.

Horizons

Oceans 795

When some people see a horizon

they think of endless possibilities

maybe even the stars and moon at night

or the sky and the water in a wedding

but I usually think of you

and how we are here on this earth

blending together

looking into each other’s eyes

simply dreaming

of being together

forever and a day.

Holding Hands

Oceans 807

Even though our suns are moving towards the horizon

holding hands with you causes flowers to bloom,

surges life through my veins, with enough raw power

to light a city, or at least a small town, I pray

when it is time for the ending, that my hand is in yours

so I can calmly slip into forever, with my last words being,

“My Love……”

Oneness

Maine and More 271

You taught me how to see,

to embrace

that there is really is no limit,

to accept the depth, the feelings,

of what love can do,

so that I could understand

healing, the wholeness,

of ocean and sky being the same,

separate, yet together

a beautiful oneness,

of our souls in the realm,

of eternity,

there really is

no limit.

Angels

Mountains and Rivers 308

Angels are not here right now,

but they are always ascending,

and descending, searching for hope,

and some common sense,

amazed at our weaknesses,

our selfishness,

mostly though,

they are doing battle,

so we don’t all destroy ourselves.

So in that sense,

angels are very good.

Cute no, warriors yes.

In Eternity

Oceans 1387

 

In eternity the colors are brighter,

than anything we can comprehend,

the lonely will be loved,

and the pain will be gone,

no more dying.

There will only be one judge,

instead of many,

to see how much we loved,

how much we helped,

other people.

Did we care?

or just preach our doctrine?

while people starved,

and waited,

for help that never came.

I love the mountains,

and my life here,

but people are what matter,

we were meant to be healing,

He said so,

go for the heartbeat,

with a hand,

of compassion.

I want to see the brightness,

of the colors,

with my brothers and sisters,

standing,

shoulder to shoulder,

thanking,

each other for the help,

we all needed,

caring,

about each other,

even though,

we were,

different colors.

The Flowers Will Still Bloom

Mountains and Rivers 056

When I am gone,

the flowers will still bloom,

people will still question the sky,

asking why,

is there sun and rain?

will there be an end?

I know there will be peace,

I just know,

but in the meantime,

all we can do is be a rock,

a healer, for someone else,

and along the way,

enjoy the flowers,

when they bloom.
