you live daily, saying ‘love’ as if it were still far away
Thank you David, for you beautiful poems. They inspire creativity and peace
Thank you for this poem. It resonates deeply and allows the tears to flow. ❤️
This is a very relatable poem. We have all been here. Dark, hopeless. But the mistake is to think it will not change. The mistake is to think you are not connected to Earth and your own Humanity. That you are beyond joy and beauty and love. We begin to live defensively to lessen the pain we feel. But it does not work that way! As David says : Cry for goodness sake......let go......come home to who you really are, without apology.
I love the lines : "... be like the beauty we see in winter ice, just beginning to break and flow." After the pain of being frozen comes the beauty of flowing free. Pain is a great teacher and healer but we mistake it for permanent and forget that law of the universe that says that everything is in a state of flux, always seeking balance. We love the Light, yet Darkness has equal value if we don't allow fear to dominate. I was once taught FEAR is an acronym for False Evidence Appearing Real. A thought that can break the winter ice perhaps and guide the pilgrim home.
so lovely!! yes!!! *whispering*: "just come home" - love that!
