the most perfect
of my life.
I, a relative neophyte,
standing in unfamiliar land
with a seasoned ladies’ man.
he, skilled in the art of
seduction and tease.
me, scared, excited
and so very intrigued.
he, leans in
me, inside, trembling
some things have shifted-
a veil, heavy weights
have been lifted.
as if from an old
I can give
in equal measure.
exploring, digging ever deeper,
for boundless treasure
within, first, myself
and, then thus, the “other.”
no longer me, no we-
just utter and complete transparency.
I have become untethered and free!
the depth, the intensity,
makes me oh so heady!
becomes an intricate dance-
at times, a fiery flamenco,
next a little funky disco-
we’re lost inside an exquisite trance.
we’ve no sense of space and time.
who am I?
no matter the distance and time
between the physical and the mind.
Namaste, we say,
each other’s Light clearly see
and then immediately retrieve
where we last left our story.
No beat missed,
no talk of business,
born of pure, present bliss!
we fall back into resonance.
and out of the blue;
recalling the old,
all once joyously told.
This is no stranger,
this familiar unfamiliar face.
Rather a beacon of grace,
a safe space,
a peaceful place
how is it possible that God could have poured
so much deliciousness in just one Cup?
it is simply too much for another to sop up!
blowing the mesmerized mind every time,
can’t look at ya,
can’t look away.
your utter exquisiteness
holds such sweet sway.
you personify sublime.
so damn divine,
like a delectable glass of rare, perfectly aged wine.
you overpower, disarm and intoxicate!
how then does a mere mortal adequately navigate?
enthralled, thrown, spellbound,
I ask my Lord:
why so much scrumptiousness into one Cup you poured?
moves me always to tears,
unearthing my deepest joys, aches, and fears.
mixed in is great gratitude and awe,
an appreciation of what some Souls came here for.
Therein lies the source of the pain,
that is a profound yearning to do the same:
To the world, contribute Beauty in His Name.
Beauty inspired and informed by spirituality
with the intention of transformative ministry.
Beauty in all its many forms;
Beauty beyond limited social norms;
Beauty that Heart melts & warms.
Beauty that consciousness expands,
that makes great demands
of its adoring beholder:
risk for a Life that is richer & ever bolder!
