My Bleeding Heart

 

I dreamt of you last night

the images, bittersweet

Now in waking

all feels empty

knowing that you’re gone

your goodbye echoing in my mind

My heart aches

still longing for you

holding on against all hope

it dangles there

dripping with love

My heart will never fully say goodbye to you

my love, my soul’s mate

Throughout the strands of time

my heart will continue on

carrying you with it

even as it bleeds

it’s beautiful

for having loved you

One Day

“One day your heart will take you to your Lover.
One day your soul will carry you to the Beloved.
Don’t get lost in your pain, know that one day your pain will become your cure.”

Thirsty

 

My velvety petals unfurl

thirsty

for your life-giving drops of rain

Spring Rains

 

Nourishing droplets dance on my skin

Exhilarating and refreshing

are the spring rains

I got caught in the rain yesterday, and as I hurried to get indoors to escape it, I suddenly paused and realized how wonderful those raindrops felt on my skin –  cold, but exhilarating, and oh so refreshing.  Ah…  let the rain fall, washing away all worry and strife…

So what if I arrive at my destination soaking wet – at least I’m clean.  😉

Desire Awakens

 

Beneath your fragrant boughs

seduced by your alluring scent

desire awakens

Flower Chorus

 

“O such a commotion under the ground,
When March called, “Ho, there! ho!”
Such spreading of rootlets far and wide,
Such whisperings to and fro!
“Are you ready?” the Snowdrop asked,
” ‘Tis time to start, you know.”
“Almost, my dear!” the Scilla replied,
“I’ll follow as soon as you go.”
Then “Ha! ha! ha!” a chorus came
Of laughter sweet and slow,
From millions of flowers under the ground,
Yes, millions beginning to grow.

“I’ll promise my blossoms,” the Crocus said,
“When I hear the blackbird sing.”
And straight thereafter Narcissus cried,
“My silver and gold I’ll bring.”
“And ere they are dulled,” another spoke,
“The Hyacinth bells shall ring.”
But the Violet only murmured, “I’m here,”
And sweet grew the air of Spring.
Then “Ha! ha! ha!” a chorus came
Of laughter sweet and low,
From millions of flowers under the ground,
Yes, millions beginning to grow.

O the pretty brave things, thro’ the coldest days
Imprisoned in walls of brown,
They never lost heart tho’ the blast shrieked loud,
And the sleet and the hail came down;
But patiently each wrought her wonderful dress,
Or fashioned her beautiful crown,
And now they are coming to lighten the world
Still shadowed by winter’s frown.
And well may they cheerily laugh “Ha! ha!”
In laughter sweet and low,
The millions of flowers under the ground,
Yes, millions beginning to grow.”

 

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
