There is a light in you

There is a light in you

that never goes out

no matter who steps on you

it rages, spits.. flourish!

There is a light in you

that never goes out

no matter how hard you step on yourself

it rages, spits… flourish!

If you echo frost smoke from winters past,

if you extinguish your heart

and freeze your words,

it rages, spits… flourish!

If you forget yourself

it remembers,

if you stop loving yourself,

it loves for you.

It rages, spits… flourish!

If you stop existing,

it rebirths you,

if you drop to the ground,

it remains standing.

It rages, spits… flourish!

It does not rise and set like the sun,

become visible and invisible like the stars,

it has nothing to do with darkness or light,

being or non-being.

It rages, spits… flourish!

There is a light in you

that never goes out.

Walking through a Forest

Walking down a Forest path,

My heart start to grow roots,

My Soul spans out

Butterfly wings.

And I flutter undecidedly

Between Heaven and Earth.

And I expect I will keep at this dance

Until the beating of my Heart

Will be the beating of wings

And my roots will learn

To grow upside down.

Still the Love in your Heart

Still the love in your heart, make it real quiet,
So that it doesn’t go to waste.
Throw it not into the chasm of self-doubt.
I am here, your dance partner
On unsolid surface.
We’ll pedal together despite our spindly legs,
We’ll wobble on blessings if we have to
But we’ll never quite aim
for the river bank.
