flame of love

you are blazing
at my core,
sweet flame of love
i am not
separate from you

...i dipped into
the future
far as the
human eye
could see;
saw the vision
of the world,
and all the
wonder that
would be

do not disturb

the human spirit
needs places
where nature
has not been
rearranged by
the hand of man

"in your light,
we see light..."
little by little
life takes on
the color of that
by which
it is illumined
moment by moment
a richer hue
until every thing
is golden

i dreamt of looking
deep into the night sky
and seeing all the stars -
(far more than i have
ever seen in waking life)
glowing, pulsing, exchanging light
in an other-worldly communion
all my senses suddenly expanded
then compressed
into one knowing...
the kind that mortal bodies
cannot sustain for long
but for which we're made, nevertheless

learning to stand
in your own power
sometimes requires
pushing back
against the voices
that say:
do it this way

into the silence

...god is laboring in me
i need to be silent for a while,
worlds are forming
in my heart.

-meister eckhart (1260-1327)
