SURRENDER – SIMPLE BALANCE OF LIGHT AND DARKNESS – WE ARE HEARD AND THEN WE VANISH FROM SIGHT INTO DARKNESS

November 21, 2016

Surrender –

 When you were here and I fell down was left for lost until you found me

 

SURRENDER  –

 SIMPLE BALANCE OF LIGHT AND DARKNESS –

WE ARE HEARD AND THEN WE VANISH FROM SIGHT INTO DARKNESS

 

Remembering when you were here

I stumbled you found me when I had passed out

disappeared was lost from all touch

 how I wished that you were here beside me

beside rushing waters absolving me of my aching heart

gasping for air breathing into me

 a trembling bleeding heart

your courage to rise

regaining my balance

my way

caring for me as a sanctified gift from afar

 

 

It is quiet outside as the chill of deepest winter begins hovering over everything there is

 The world is descending into the earth

 There is a point when everything stops

all remains frozen 

 all sound  muffled

One feels the sense of dread

of longing for a heartwarming fire

for your company  

 many have few places to go

sit down sing gather together in preparation for the Winter Solstice that comes

the longest night

we bow down remembering those who have died

who had to stay outside suffering indignities

suffering from the solitude of utter cold in

darkness that is impenetrable

 remember that once there was a home a place where each one belonged

 a person to whom one was connected throughout history

a bright glint of embers of a Yulelog ascending into frigid night

reminding us of both how precious  as much vulnerable

 reminding us of how we all  always

 in all ways

are connected

 in the shelter of one another

we all dwell

in this moment we’re stirred to hold one another

to hold on and grasp hands around waists

 sing dance move together in rhythms

in circles of bonds that hold us from the beginning. 

 We remember sitting together around a fire

 providing warmth as long as we snuggled

in a loving embrace

held one another shoulder to shoulder

protecting all of us making sacred  compassion care a haven for all

 we all belong

 for all else that we are offered we give thanks

we remember that we are  infinitesimal

glints in the reflecting of light throughout our firmament

 our touch is a brief memory implanted in our presence 

we always have a place

 we are born

thrust into the wilderness of yearning

 following us always until we are free

 dissipating  beyond all light 

 heard from no more

Remembered in loving reflecting of

Bleeding hearts of presence

As long as memory persists

We lift our eyes toward you

With adulation that you’re here

tending to our broken hearts
