We have the Night Shadows all around us


We have the night Shadows all around us
Stir not by me today
Let them come and sleep beside me
Like water sleeps in the rain

Close not your hand against what is frozen
For it will also one day become yours
But wrap your light so carefully around it
Like you wrap yourself around me

Do not think you can solve the knots in the wild weeds
But let your riddles be solved in me
Let us grow together wildly
Like streams grow wild in the sea

Clothe dark woods in the secrets you keep
But let your snow be draped around me
You can leave your feet bare against the stones and the mud
As you can leave your heart bare in my keep

A hole in the wall

His soul
was knocking
on the walls
of her heart

and she finally
took courage
and carved a hole
in the wall
just big enough
to let him in

I love you

I love you
Among all things
Gone wrong
I love you

In the silent departures
In longing
And belonging
I love you

In the falling leaves
And under maple trees
I love you

In the footsteps left behind
And the ones not yet made
I love you

Walk with me
My love,
Let us walk
Further and further
Into life
Deeper and deeper
Into love

Love is…

Love is the blossom
that grows not apart
that winks like a shadow
on the sun’s burning heart

Love is the softness
that tames yet remains wild
breaking or mending
yet is innocent like a child

It holds not a difference
it tears not apart
it gathers all passings
in seams of tender scars

Love is the asking
that needs no reply
bruising and healing
stays or walks by

Love is the chamber
that holds no regrets
it keeps and releases
it rises and sets

Love is the gift
you cannot return
it is not destined
for ashes
with immortality
it blazes and burns
