Aloha Kama-Loka II

Endings frighten us,

So we invent forever … we create beliefs.

Ideals about love are myths,

So we bite our tongues but kiss.

We yearn for the bliss that meditation is supposed to lease,

But we never see what really is…

Never see what death achieves…

The ending of time, the birth of eternity,

Unconditioned by hopes, undetermined by clocks…

So please forget me, if you hope to begin to love

And even tell yourself I’m not what you found me to be if the memory persists.

Let me write you out of my mind too.

Let me lose you so that there are no words…

So that there is silence, so you can have nirvana.

Don’t fear the death of us, from that we reach a new plane…

Free from pain and the wanting of warmth.

Learn to appreciate the colour of heartache,

And smile like a half grey moon,

Because compassion is not in the departure from,

But rather in the meeting of truth.

Sunset Muse

Blue sky, yellow sunset …

Nature’s green seeping through your brown eyes  making them perfect hazels.

Chemistry born of kaleidoscopic symmetry,

In which emotions manoeuvre …

Guided by the rays of your halo.

Lips textured like ripe grapes

That make my soul scream HELLO!

Tender rhythms outpouring whenever they part,

Soothing, life-giving and synchronistic with the beat of my heart.

She embellishes that distant light over the horizon,

For me to harness the energy for this liaison.
