Wild flowers do not move towards the sunlight ...

Love is eternal hope and endures all
amongst this fractured play of life
There is forever a reason for hope
love intertwined with love creates a life fully lived

In between the rhythms of pain and dislocation
there is a space for dreams
If we dream, it will arrive with vigour
we only need courage to embrace it when it comes

From birth to rebirth to birth
we evolve into the person we were intended to be
Child becomes adult becomes child
if we nurture our inner angels

Sometimes leaving leads nowhere
hunkering down breeds character
Remaining still defines soul
when there are more questions than answers

Often it can be a question of justice and truth
underpinned with rigour of active compassion
Set a table with hospitality
for friends and strangers and watch spirit flourish

And the night where love is present
is as clear as a spring day
Prayers like incense rise to the heavens
tears like moonlight illuminate the heart

When all abandons and leaves
all we have left to do is Live!
We find our salvation and comfort
in humble daily tasks as we breathe in and out

Embrace and engage our humanity
we become more full in our connection to others
Love is the music of our bodies
the blood of our souls, the salve of our minds

Love makes us see things we cannot see without it
and to be truly great we must be very very sensitive
To see so much with an open heart
and even when eyes close we still know love is there

Wild flowers do not move towards the rays of sunlight
God has made them fertile where ever they be…
