holding the exquisite . . .

can hold
much beauty
much fullness . . .
my cup is full.
yet sometimes
when longing
washes over
it overwhelms . . .
curl within softly
in wondering sadness
we were never meant to be alone
our beloved
in the right time
rightly engenders
sparking to bloom wildfire gardens
of transcendence . . .
never designed
to last forever
but the reordered alignment
of two connected magnetic souls
sets something in motion
love changes everything
i will always be grateful
for the bank of love I have known
and try
by the grace of God
to have faith
never to be greedy . . .
for what is not mine
it has been said
do not awaken love before it’s time.
there is much wisdom in that
but is not entirely within
our grasp to control . . .

    This is so beautiful and yet it does have a lot of wisdom. I don’t know if you wrote this after the project, but I take it as that you have put all of your energy in your work and now that it is over, (at least this one for now) you have had time to relax and let your soul meditate. This has a little sadness and acceptance but the love is still there.

  • before and during the set up of my exhibit tweaked and posted. I have not fully processed so much of some recent significant experiences . . it is like being swallowed by a wave and bobbing back up. I know much will come out of my digestion. I have pushed myself and allowed myself to be poshed way beyond what my former limits seemed . . . new things happened . . new strengths, new methods and new pahtways and possibilities open. yes always chose love . . . no matter what. love to you. xx

    Can’t be controlled … if it could, it would not be love…

  • to attempt to control the uncontrollable is a set up. . . and a waste.
    love is always a risk . . and adventure. :)
    Thank you Graham.

    I too have been privy to the confining, yet liberating, exemption of a life less the love I often long for. It is for this reason that this particular piece brought a tear to my eye. You have such a dignifying grace about you, Yvonca. You’re so forthcoming in regard to your feelings and your heart and that shows in your work. You deserve the love you desire, but you also have earned the right to separate yourself from anguish of when love fails. It’s best that we embrace the pain so as to sort ourselves from the tribulation of relationships gone bad. I use this time not to focus on what others have done to me, but rather what my role was in each failed relationship I was the common denominator in. Learn yourself, know yourself and learn to love yourself when all you have is the silence, your God and yourself to confide in because in the end it is that silence, God and yourself that keeps you afloat. Thank you for this heart warming piece my friend. You are appreciated.

  • such a wonder of a comment Steve. again and again it seems key, exactly what messages we hold in response to the unfolding of events. our value stands regardless of change. and really we all do the best we can. thank you for this dear comment Steve.

    I had to find this after reading Steve’s piece which was influenced by it.

    It is remarkable.
    You do possess so much wisdom, so much grace and you are so deserving of life’s bounty because you truly understand what blessings are and truly appreciate them.


  • oh thanks Cia for taking the time here to read. you are too good to me my friend. Thanks a billion!!! xx
