When Time is Nevermore

ilhan-berk-kumsaati

No one really knows if we will wake up tomorrow to live another day; how long we have together, to love and be loved, to experience and give kindness or to share ourselves completely with another person.

To put aside our ‘should haves and regrets,’ real life always has obstacles in the way~ a debt that never seems to get paid, deadlines that seem to stretch out beyond our definition of time, heartbreaks that place fear between another chance to feel love… there are so many things we think we have to do first in order to move on.  The truth is that these obstacles are a part of our real life and they are the forthcoming foot prints along our journey.

The tendency to wait for the perfect conditions; to balance timing with convenience is the greatest tragedy in life.  It’s like waiting for that perfect rose garden to grow when all the while we could be enjoying the roses that are blooming right outside our window.

The present time has a powerful advantage over any other time that we know; it belongs to no one but ourselves.  If we choose to put it into a space, later on there will be nothing there.  If we choose to put it on hold, we will never hold it again.

Think of all the years that the Universe has graced us and know that our time together has been set and aligned within the stars.  Know that each moment is within our reach and our time has come and will pass nevermore.

Firefly

I am a fleeting light
A momentary aura glowing in glance
Swirling and dancing in enchantment
Flowing in and out of a mirage of golden threads
Into the night of once upon a time.

Rivers run lightly as I waver in the wind
Weaving and fluttering through soft eruptions
That brilliantly wraps me in a cricket’s song
Of lyrical stance from another hemisphere.

Inhaling the fresh scent of honeysuckle
Whisper to me in sweet after taste
Like a liquid effervescent love.
I savor each drop upon my illuminating wings
And garnish its pattern in transformation.

I kiss the breath of enchanting air
Frolic in locks of your hair and your soft neck
Unearthing memories of light
For as long as it takes to absorb your absence.

I am unbinding of wrappings and restraints
In a creaturely world of recurrent habit.
With all creatures, I will tirelessly fade into the starless sky
For it is here you will glance at me in a shimmering evanescent
And know my liberation of impermanence in a starry night.

Prisoner of Words

Love-you-Art mr wallpaper freeThey held each other close
Like a blanket of stars within the sky.
She wanted to tell him of her love
But her words were like prisoners
Held down under her tongue
Unable to escape beyond her lips.

As he released her warm body
His presence faded
Into the cold mist of the evening.
Her words melted and flowed
Down into her heart.
And the only thoughts
That escaped her mind
Was that she loved him a long time ago.
