Dear Beloved

This page contains weekly updated poems I've been writing to Love and the Beloved. In the Sufi tradition, God or the Divine is experienced and worshiped as the Beloved who can be found in everything and everyone: in the eyes of a lover, a stranger, and in the currents of your own longing heart.

Back to the garden

By | January 22nd, 2018|Love, Poetry|0 Comments

Back to the garden, back to the source, Back to the only desirable force Love calls to witness all daughters and sons Held in the infinite arms of the One. Back to the forum, back to the ring, Back to the pendulum's perpetual swing Drawing us closer, then drawing us back In constant pull twixt [...]

Love was and will always be

By | August 25th, 2017|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Love was and will always be Man's most puzzling mystery Spinning lovers' foolish heads When they think they'll win their bets Once Love has been legalized Spelled out, signed, and itemized None of which Love understands For Love wants our reverence Wants us daily on our knees Known alone in mysteries

Midsummer Night’s Dream

1 Surely, this would be the end the moment where the Light would escape my cells into the Indescribable Final Frame My heart a shooting star for new lovers to remember If it couldn't hold any longer onto the singing rivers but it is not so Not so still I am Counting what time has [...]

Create me in your image

By | June 14th, 2017|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Create me in your image, make me you want to see inside my soul script's lineage binary answer key. Express me in your language, spell words in make believe so limitations languish as magic is conceived. Imprint your code of armor in strokes beneath my skin, ignite your highest dharma in me, your threefold twin.

Each blessed morning

By | May 18th, 2017|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Each blessed morning opens new the page to Love's transmogrifying multicolored stage: Calls me to the purple oak Ravens jet black shining coat Ferns green fingered stubborn vote Chariots setting sun's red throat Eyes blue saturating hues sinking into mine to fuse Colors textures smells tastes sounds into Love's white allsurround Which is where I [...]

I’ve done it before

I've done it before and will do it still more Take bold leaps of faith from my heart's reservoir Charged heads over heels on my will's trampoline With a smile on my face for my life's tangerine For no leap of faith can be destined to fail If I leap unafraid from Love's anchoring rail [...]

Out of diapers

And when the teeth had come in, Love grew out of diapers and wanted to wear bigboy pants, button, zipper and all no more Pottytalk and waiting for someone else to come around and change her
