Insignificant We

it is the pale blue that seeps into my tears
watered down gold that alludes me
the…
golden promises where no promises are made
Where I turn from you and fly to the skies
my only
safe haven
where bubbles of air pass by me as I hold my breath
and teeter on the brink of the vastness
beyond our
proclamations
renumerate
It is my heart
that seems so insignificant now
Not enough to sustain the reality of the whole
It is my pairing with you HERE..
on these sands
Above water
under the skies
that seems so insignificant now
It is walking and feeling the chill of
the tides
the constant reminder of my feelings
the pressing my footprints in earth
that disappears as the moon pulls
the cycle that brings birth and death
and round back again.
flooding the thoughts
feelings of ‘all’
for naught
feelings that ‘this too shall pass’
insignificant
for this love to last
(but then I find as I fly to the skies.. Love can never be born nor can it die, This love that seems like love between the two.. is the more of the We never insignificant nor untrue)
We
Only
Seem
Insignificant
but lay down and let the water, the sky and the earth and the air.. churn in the body
feel the four corners of life meet inside.
How magical is this my darling!
Our Being and our Breath
Connectors
from here our earthly depth
To the outer reaches of all that sustains
It is knowing our love of each other
and life that remains
and reminds us that never oh never my dear
Will we be insignificant to each other
or to All that is HERE.
(You can always find me if you breathe).
