Desert Dreaming

Sitting on a lonely bench, searching for the Sunlight to warm her fragile body,
she saw him.
Dressed in white, in a jovial mood with friends, he skipped his way into town,
and into her Heart.

Their eyes met. They barely spoke.
But when their palms touched…
Fire,
In the Space Between.

Lets walk together, She said.
I shall follow you into the Night, He said.
And thus a pilgrimage into a Desert of Dreams began.

Beneath a blanket of Stars and the gentle embrace of the cold, dark Night,
they Walked.
Side by side, feet stepping onto the sand,
she healed his Heart with the warmth of her hands.

She did not know it then…but it was a Journey that would Heal Her Soul. Lost, many times long ago, searching for love in all the wrong places, this time when she stopped looking and started truly giving,
the kind that lasted Lifetimes would come waltzing in.

Who knew, it would be start of something True…

The Scent of Longing

It smells like you
Your scent hangs heavy in the air
Like my hair,
As it spirals down my face like smoke,
     after days of tending the fire.

Your wet, dampened-by-the-rain scent
Spreads
Like the thread of your presence
Weaving a web of memories
   – others remembered, others yet to be fulfilled –
       around me.

It smells like rain
I caught a whiff of the mist rising to kiss the Sun.
Like a prayer it raised me up to the Heart of the Heavens and led me to the clouds that gather in your eyes.

Your aroma is that of the Earth.
   Humble.
      Comforting.
         Penetrating.
It seeps through the soil of my fertile Heart-Mind and inspires the Truth.

I hear the Song now
Each dew drop a note in the Symphony of Life.

And so…I feel your roots within me now, Man-Tree.
The Breath of Life reminds me of your lessons and Love.

plant yourself strong

How can I forget?
