For what is not to be forgotten

In the fragility of the sacred

of life

it is in the healing

the battles end

in us

holding space

for what is not to be forgotten

the eminence

of love

Connection of fragility

And once in a while

when this world seems so far away 

from the reality I am in my core

I allow myself being saved

by the beauty of it all

in all its dimensions

as tea drenched fabric wrapped into something tangible 

the poetry of tears falling down

painting life into me

calling back the stars

rocking me gently 

like a lullaby

the evanescence of it all

yet knowing the unlimitedness of the galaxies inside

the evaporation of existence

the everlasting being whole

torn into parts

and once in a while

when the world seems so far away

from the truth

I allow myself being saved 

by the surrender

kneeling down onto this earth

understanding the connection of this fragility

to the ultimate possibility we are

breaking open

unchaining

This is life

in all its connection

born in divinity

in the ultimate protection of love

and somehow down the lane

the diversions lead some of us astray

away from the source

of the belonging to all

and while we are wandering

some of us stop wondering

that every breath taken is a breath shared

sacred to the bone

a remembrance of home

even apart

a reminder

we are never alone

banded together

in the seen and the unseen

so never doubt you are heard

and you are felt

and more than this 

you are loved

beyond all time

and all space

in all its connection

together

we 

stand

Healing

If I am to write about the struggles, the fights,

the ambushes, the bombs, the killings

I need words I do not want to express

the attempt in describing the utter horror

gives power to its pain

so let me share with you the stories of healing wounds

a flower laid down where our hearts go out to

the soft embrace from a savior

a candle lit in the dark hours

the hands from a friend reaching out

the opening doors by a stranger

pulling you in from harm

the light that enters the crack

for a brief moment only think about that

let this thought take you into the world of compassion

and know this is in you

and in this feeling of helplessness

look for the helpers in all world’s mayhem

and know this is you too

Handing over to love

Tell me where do you hold your pain and agony?
In your heart?
Do you let it eat your body?
You retaliate it with your words onto others?
You release it and surrender?
Or do you let it devour you entirely?
Do you sit with it and think it over
and over and over again?
I hand it over to love
as love will love all boldly knowing more than I do
