Poem: Mellow Peace

 

open sky,
moon lit
grace,
candle light,
a glass of wine,

two warm
blankets
surround me,
a blanket,
and peace.

Poem: Metamorphic Droplet

 

a droplet
joyfully plops
in the sun´s
warmth,

the precum
of spring
merges with
the earth,

chuckles
the observer

Poem: The Lovers – Rainer Maria Rilke

 

See how in their veins all becomes spirit:
into each other they mature and grow.
Like axles, their forms tremblingly orbit,
round which it whirls, bewitching and aglow.
Thirsters, and they receive drink,
watchers, and see: they receive sight.
Let them into one another sink
so as to endure each other outright.

 

– Rainer Maria Rilke

Poem: Touched by an Angel – Maya Angelou


We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.

Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure
ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold,
love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls.

We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love’s light
we dare be brave
And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free.

 

– Maya Angelou
