Tulip purple

The mind says “Wait, wait,

just a little longer

until the days lengthen.

Then the world will be brighter.”


The Beloved answers, “Now, now,

this moment stretches to eternity.

Close your eyes

and bask in My sunshine.


“Your inner tulips already blossom.

Your hyacinths and daffodils burst with joy.

Whenever you wait for spring

you leave Me and enter the eternal winter

where My rays cannot caress you.


“Throw open your door

run naked through the piñon forest.

Let Me warm you

until you realize your own Radiance.”


Happy Holidays, dear readers!
