love is !


Impossible to hide or run away

The invisible cord that joins us together throbs unwaveringly

Fleeing is not an option as the bond is beyond our control

It was made many lifetimes ago between our souls


We suffer from physical constraints that

If given power bring fear into the purity of our union

But our tie remains strong, luminous and alive



In my naivety, I shared too much

Sure of you, sure of our love

Forgetting the fears and doubts of those

Who cannot feel the pulsing force that breathes between us


Nor understand the evidence

Of our need for each other

In this lifetime and the next

For eternity…


Last night I traversed the desert

Tracked by the dark trepidation of terror

expelling our love with its obscurity

groping desperately for the familiar warmth and throb of you


Please forgive me for the moment’s doubt

That stung your heart disbelievingly

I want never to pain you, for your pain is mine

Our love is the strength that banishes all that is not.


With the dawn, the familiar feel of our union in my belly is back

Fear conquered and a newfound animal-like instinct

To protect our love, for only we can grasp the

Deep need for it to penetrate our skins and become sacredly real


Without the fear that was not mine

Heart to heart for infinity in timeless love

Across space and time, we will dance together

Forever, the gypsy and the merchant


Our physical lives know not of each other’s worlds

You with ..’and sons’ after your name, a solid base

That traverses generations, a wife and family, home and

Social standing.


Me, a butterfly with a damaged wing, my family a mish-mash of

Cosmic beings, met and loved along the way

No fixed estate, rootless and free

I wait for the universe to point out the route…again


But I feel no worries in these divergences

The world is small and our love knows no boundaries

My heart commits to you and the precious moments

We will share, suspended in time and space.


We can nourish a love that flies free from day to day worries

Unattached from contracts and dues

That wraps itself solidly, momentarily around us

Strong enough to traverse the oceans until the next space opens in time.


I love you!

a grip that pulses through the pain

of the past and into the core of their being

Holding tightly, love at last sponges up the hurt

heart to heart, slowly

the warmth revivifies the frozen tears

Trusting one another, bare and raw

Space in between for the wound to breath

soft tenderness fills the opening where their souls meet

Holding the other, down to the bone, skeletol, barely alive

love gently imbues its warmth

triggering a spark of new life

Hope shines through the crack in their fragility,

they delicately embrace

taking care of this new born opening

Gently, lovingly, they move together

encompassing their grief, holding the moment in suspence

tight in each others arms they find peace

She dares to believe in him

he in his own pain, holds them both in the homely softness

of their naked bodies, breathing as one

He takes care of her in a way she has never known before

She hesitates before falling into their union

and is caught safely by her new found trust

……in him

Poem written at the period of Samhain when the veil between this world and the other are thin!



To Gaia

Merging with the sacred copal smoke
you rise slowly, spirallling and meandering
around the gnarled oak branches
and up towards the stars

I rest on the familiar forest floor
the sacred fire burns…still
slowly turning to ashes
I gaze into the last spark of fading orange warmth

A frozen shiver runs rhythmically
through my cells, as they touch your absence
Alone infront of the emptiness, tears
warm the bitter chill with their sadness.

For three cycles of seven
I hobbled through this heavy matter
carrying you with me, my betrayed child
angry and confused, hidden from the light

As the layers peeled away
the spiral of healing turned on itself
matter became lighter, my body knew it was right…
the time to face the aching truth .

Pardon me dearest one for calling and
then allowing them to up-root you,
for the violence in this act, I must own alone
responsible, I pray for your forgiveness

I strain to forgive myself
to allow the weight to lift and step into the light
My heart is heavy with the suffering
of your soul and the what would have been

Our long, silent, dark journey together
is now over, love has set us free
and this lesson of love I will carry for ever
in the truth of what was you in me.

I’m sorry and I will always love you!
