Simply Be

  The mountain does not try to be majestic. It simply stands tall, letting the light and seasons play across its contours.   The river does not force itself to flow faster or uphill. It simply follows its own frolicking meander to the sea.   The sun does not compete with other stars in the […]

Feed the Torrent

On this drought day when you ache for a full gushing thunderstorm yet only a spritz of rain cools your skin do not lose heart, my love.   In the monsoon season the splattering rain today feeds the great torrent of tomorrow.   So one day when you hardly expect it a billowing thunderhead will perch above […]

The True Guide

Parched desert softens, convictions evaporate.   […]

The Old Lover

The old lover handsome in that rugged way comes to your table holds out his hand and asks you to dance.   You know you can follow that ancient desire into his arms two-step across the scuffed wood floor intoxicated by a mind-fogging cologne.   But then you remember how, in his aggressiveness, he steps […]

Drunk on Love

Please enjoy this guest poem by Logan Jo’el. Hiccup I cannot help but smile when seeing those jovial ascending lovers bumping into the Divine’s Body, letting out hiccups with the scent of lilac and lavender, staggering about, flawlessly guided. Oh my, there goes another one, pulling out their chalice… before the Beloved Master who fills […]

Spring Is Here!

One cannot rush winter one cannot make the earth warm the buds blossom the sparkling rains fall.   Each experience inhales and exhales its own perfect breath, the lessons within the moonless nights and pelting hail.   Why wait? Why struggle? Spring is already here!   In this moment the sun shines golden within, the […]
