tide of love

The tide of my love 
Has risen so high let me flood 
over 
You.

positions of love

“There are
So many positions of 
Love:

Each curve on a branch,

The thousand different ways
Your eyes can embrace us,

The infinite shapes your
Mind can draw,

The spring 
Orchestra of scents,

The currents of light combusting
Like passionate lips,

The revolution of Existence’s skirt
Whose folds contain other worlds.

Your every sigh that falls against
inconceivable
Omnipresent
Body.”

night magic

“This is the kind of Friend
You are –
Without making me realize
My soul’s anguished history,
You slip into my house at night,
And while I am sleeping,
You silently carry off
All my suffering and sordid past
In Your beautiful
Hands.”

sign of thirst

“In many parts of this world water is
Scarce and precious.
People sometimes have to walk
A great distance
Then carry heavy jugs upon their
Heads.
 Because of our wisdom, we will travel
Far for love.
All movement is a sign of
Thirst.
Most speaking really says
“I am hungry to know you.”
Every desire of your body is holy;
Every desire of your body is
Holy.
Dear one,
Why wait until you are dying
To discover that divine
Truth?”
