Just Being

I am light and love.

I am not invisible,

You just can’t see me.

Narcissus wonders:

Is this about you or me?

Love is so fragile.

Birds flying in pairs;

morning mist all around me:

no sound left behind.

Childbirth by Yol Swan

Embraced by the night
and warm water
surrounding your body
and mine,
you pushed through flesh and blood
to catch your first breath
before my eyes.

I welcomed pain as unavoidable,
became a witness
to my instincts,
and watched my body do
what it was meant to do
even without me.

I chanted for you
and for me,
gave my blood and breath
with no reserve,
and delved into a deep
and sacred space within me
to be divinely touched
by your arrival.

You emerged swiftly,
like a little mermaid
awakening from the slumber
and quietude of a dream world,
smiling into my arms
and your father’s,
and filling the room
with light.

I had been waiting for you
for so long,
without even knowing it,
yearning for this sense of purpose,
this unfathomable love,
completely unaware of how
and humbling
the experience would be.

I Am That

Tree under clouds and sunbeams

I am the pulse of existence,
the space between your thoughts,
and the spark of your desires.

I am the source of life and death,
the everything and the nothing,
all happiness and all sorrow.

I am mountains and rivers,
creatures and creators,
planets and galaxies,
and beyond.

I am the power of eternal love,
the magnificent light
behind the veil of illusion,
and the illusion itself.

I am you, if you could see me,
flowing through your mind,
making your every move,
whispering in your heart.

I am that, and you are
that which I am, too,
unaware of the worlds
you create and destroy
with every single thought.

Longing for Love

Lotus Flower by Yol Swan - https://yolswan.wordpress.com

You unveiled a gleam of truth,
the precious sweetness of freedom,
for too short of an instant.

Once the bliss was gone,
I craved more, I cried
like a lover longing for love.

I pined. I yearned.
My emptiness seemed emptier,
a bottomless void
filled with pain and despair.

You showed me that love
was longing for me
since the dawn of eternity.

I had to bear the pain
and quest for a way back
to that moment divine.

Blue sky by the lake surrounded by mountains NZ

You are everywhere
and nowhere to be found.
You are with no beginning
and no end, infinite
and beyond infinite.

You are everything
and nothing,
with and without form,
the illusion and the truth
of all that has ever been,
and beyond the truth as well.

You are here and there,
you are now and beyond time,
untouched and untouchable,
yet in all living beings
and in the black pain of death.

You are the light, the hope,
the spirit of it all,
the laughter and the silence
of innocence and love.

You are the heart of darkness
and the sadness in the world,
the suffering and salvation
of sins that were never yours.

You are the demon and the angel,
the tyrant and the prisoner,
the prayer and the saint,
the curse and the miracle
of life.

You are endless
and beyond endless,
the master behind all power
and the humblest of slaves.

You are eternally beyond
all names, shapes, and colors,
within the ether of space
and the brightness of light,
invisible and ever present,
beyond eternity itself.
