In one mouthful bite
Oranges, wild berries and apples
With hint of cinnamon and chili.
I sense the crossing over heart-roaded
Where my life forced wide open
By the voice inside.
I sing my desires into simple poems,
Falling from ancient walls of feelings
Floating out into forever space of possibilities,
Surrendering to sweet and sour
tastes of their unknown future.
New frontiers merging
When inner weeping arises and blossoms
Into infinite beauty of a sincere heart
Going through seasons of life
Sometimes a joyful swim in stream of changes
Others, a long gaze beyond the hours of pain,
The unsettled and unclear duration of waiting;
The seed of happening,
Is there any end?!
Grief takes us, bite by bite
In fragile journey against
whirlpools and storms.
Can we spare any feelings, thoughts or values?
The double edge of soul, sharp and deadly like a new forged blade
Against all untrue,
still, silent and powerful.
I stand alone, in here
Between past and future,
In a single wave motion, free to breakaway
And full of holy desire to return;
Rest peacefully under a shade giving tree of earth,
Or fly above all roots and mountains,
Closer to home of stars and magical butterflies.
After a long dark longing,
The hummingbird innocent voice
is filled with silence and light.
What do we take to future, when every bit of life is holly?!
The taste; a tapping,
a scent of wood
A faint hum from distance,
A warm night, a sweet drink
And the boy who taught the lips the mystery of a kiss,
Thousand years ago and still….
I know the taste of life,
Fling with winds, intimacy with water,
Dance with cherries and write on summer leafs
The constant struggle between sweetness and bitterness
Of each bite. At the end
To find a way through against all differences
To sweetness of your own; the mystery,
the genius and the adventure of being who you are.
To walk humble and silent
To relate with all,
Dance as a dream
In what forever remains
On one mouthful bite of life.
