enact kindness
create moments of pause for disclosure, discovery, stillness

reflecting from the other side of Beltane on being found in April

called forth
in ways I could not have imagined
I story
sweet stillness
dark flame
fierce tenderness
wild joy
spoken and written
between us
ongoing, delightful disclosures
strangely familiar
astonishing how you have given
to me
not once, but twice
a knowing so carnal
as to shatter the ground
of my certainties
I can only say
I prefer a mystery
a lovely twilight beckons
and there is much to learn


  1. Thought provoking winding paths of discovery....I like called forth.....sweet stillness....a knowing so carnal
    as to shatter the ground...

  2. It is good to know that you blessed the garden in the old way...not once but twice.

  3. Linda-- nice to see you... I feel like I have been treading water for a few weeks and look forward to getting back to visiting blogs I enjoy...thanks for your comments... I was also hoping to connect that phrase " shatter the ground " with the phrase after " of my certainties " and then use " of my certainties" as the beginning of the next phrase, using the same phrase as both an ending and a beginning; I'm glad it spoke to you.
    WM--this past year has been filled with blessings for me...I wanted to pay tribute with this verse; thanks for the visit
    Pisces-- thanks for this...the preference piece of this verse just fell into place the other day ...and then the whole thing became itself... amazing how that works...
