Naked Earth

Barefeet
Kiss
Naked
Earth.

Walking
Becomes
Devotion.

Each
Step
a Kiss.

Feet
Gently
Held.

Toughened
by Rough
Stones.

Soothed
by Cool
Grass.

Naked
Feet
Kiss
Bare-Earth.

Walking
Becomes
Prayer.

I Came for Desire

I
came
for
desire.

You
brought
me your
hearts.

Thus
all my
desires
were fulfilled.

Emerging from Cocoons

We are
awakening
one being
at a time.

In different ways
to different degrees
at different times
to the same reality.

We are
learning
the wisdom
of the heart.

We are
realizing
the folly
of egotistical desires.

We are butterflies
emerging from cocoons
marveling at our wings.

Joyous
that we did not
transform alone.

We fly together
Earth bound forms
merely a dream.

I Yearn to Live Awake

Awake
in the
dreams
of a
former self.

I walk
in the
shadow
of an
unconscious
life.

Wearing
a self
that
no longer
fits.

Burdened
by debts
underwritten
be a child.

Collateralized
with a
life.

I renounce
this world
and its
tawdry
forms.

But it
will not
renounce
me.

Trapped
in the
dreams
of a
sleeping child.

I yearn
to live
awake.

I yearn
to be
free.

Worlds Within Me

I have things to say,
Which words cannot convey.

Worlds within me,
Dancing,
Needing life,
I cannot breathe.

Life as it would be,
Could be,
Should be.

If I can but speak the words,
That embody the ideals,
Then I’ll save the world.

I need a mystic chant,
An alchemy of nouns,
Pronouns,
And agitating adjectives.

They found me,
I found them.

We need a rhythm,
A rhyme,
Something that sways.

A hypnotic chant,
A rousing speech,
A argument that cannot be denied.

I have things to say,
Which words cannot convey.

Worlds within me,
Dancing,
Needing life,
I cannot breathe.
