Estuaries

Estuaries
we have reached the tidal shore
at the mouth of the great river
all flowing into
the ocean
of infinite love
it has been of lifetimes’ learning
going with the flow
and always yearning
for the place
we know as home
a timeline
with many branches
destined to opportunities
for each experience that enhances
a fullness of what we carry forward
we have come from all directions
we have embodied to bring love forth
as we reach the estuary and the tideline
we empty out and we become
one
as the next wave
draws us into
the waters of the ocean
of infinite love

To Let Go of Wants

To Let Go of Wants
so much had crashed
future hopes had been dashed
then the question was asked
do we have to give up/let go of everything
to have a new beginning?
feeling no reference points anymore
where are we?
what do we do?
or do we simply allow?
and a wise one responded
it is absolute comfort with uncertainty
not minding whatever happens
so much was said so simply
then out into nature
sunlight and warmth
water and plants
and that natural dance
of looking after
letting it all go
becoming undone
releasing all thoughts
and all that was unspun
and there it was
to achieve this
this absolute comfort with uncertainty
we will have to let go of wants
a total surrender
into the flow
something greater than us
always seems to know
and then we go
no distractions
no material wants
part of the love and the peace
those familiar fonts
inscribed within us
to live this way
we are being taught
the gift of life
we forgot
now the joy of remembrance

How to Put into Words?

How to Put into Words?
words are dissolving
or becoming incomprehensible
feelings are fleeting
not holding us trapped
the mind is no longer
designing our interplay
we are surrendered
to becoming the new
the physical body
may feel so exhausted
muscles replaced
by new fibres of strength
able to lift off
and run like the deer
running for joy
and never from fear
no longer a hunger
for food and for water
sunlight and earth energies
powers absorbed
emersion in water
freeing the gravity
being the fluid
and moving as life
where are we going?
what are we becoming?
what is happening
as we straddle the change?
are we returning
reversing so quickly
into the life forms
of love and of light?
i am as you are
we are together
becoming the new
many more than a few
anchoring the substrate
formed from particulate
creating our new world
to welcome all home
