When Horology Met Love

img_2842

Careful not to make time the space

In which she fit her love, she found

Her heart more flexible than a schedule,

More steadfast than a caliber,

Stronger than a casing.

Knowing some things cannot be

Measured or contained she

Did not depend on slots or gears,

But on passion and knowing

if all calendars and clocks disappeared

love would live on…

Chance

Hiding beneath the crushing weight of life,

So fragile you barely existed at times.

But ever so softly the whisper

Of your soul reached the ears of love.

Slowly you unwrinkled a layer at a time.

And when you learned we all die someday

You began to blossom.

To Understand Love

Before you understand the depth of love

You must be willing to ride the wave,

With salt water tangling your hair

And blinding your vision. You must risk

Crashing upon the shore and living

With sandy grit embedded in your skin.

Before you know love as the lone thing

That keeps the world in focus

You must expose your soul to hatred;

You must see it in the eyes of a rabid man who

Tortures the souls of those unlike himself.

You must hear it in the words spoken

With intent to damage hearts and stomp spirits.

You must push against injustice by shining

As if you are the sun itself.

You must allow the goodness residing deep within to rise

Like an ocean swell moving under wind and wave,

across directions, and miles unknown.

You must be the weeping love who holds

The listless fingers taking his last breath…

Love wipes her tears, takes another breath, and tarries on.

When you become the love of no complaint

You will understand love is not constrained in life or death.

Love Song

Oriental, NC 105

Wind knocks at my door.

I turn and walk away as

if no one is home.

Our chests beat like drums.

Neither of us know the words,

but we play the tune.

Closing the Chasm

bridges and nature 044

Bridges cross divides,

 joining worlds once set apart,

making dreams come true.

Open hearts and hands

build bridges across the world;

help make dreams come true.

Make it Count

heart stone

Love and compassion,

let it  get under your skin;

be reckoned with life.

The Ride

Dreams swing in the breeze.

Ride it like a kite with your

fingers holding tight.
