Poem: Heard on the Train

 

– You are the eight
wonder of the world
in my life,
says a little boy
to his father,
I guess.

– How beautifully
said, replies
the older
male.

How manly
is the balanced
feminine
in the male,
I quietly smile.

Poem: Yellow Tulip

 

I am confident
and serene,
I am free
to be me.

No push
nor pull,
I am centered
in my own energy.

Not over,
not below.
Look,
how I glow!

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

Poem: A Shamanic View

 

On a breathtakingly
beautiful winter day
twelve birds
are having a rest
on the white laced
branches
of the trees;
they look huge
compared
to the scenery
like do
ships on
an oceanic horizon.

Magical moment
of stagnation
gets saved
by the inner
camera,

in a past life
a native tribe
is quietly
tuning into
the Great Spirit.
