In rapid succession today, one door closed and before the latch caught…a window opened. It was within seconds, or fractions of a second that a disappointment was met with an opportunity. So, I’m taking it all in as a message from the universe to persevere and trust the love….it’s all about the love.
Some Kiss We Want
There is some kiss we want with
our whole lives, the touch of
spirit on the body. Seawater
begs the pearl to break its shell.
And the lily, how passionately
it needs some wild darling! At
night, I open the window and ask
the moon to come and press its
face against mine. Breathe into
me. Close the language- door and
open the love window. The moon
won’t use the door, only the window.
