To listen to this poem with music by Kailash Kokopelli

The dream of love
comes from clouds,
from the wild eyes of horses,
from the laughter of water falling.
It lives in simple houses,
in stone sinks,
in wooden tables and chairs,
in loaves of bread,
in dustpans and brooms,
in a bed of love
where sunlight
shines in the sheets.
Love is poetry,
a poetry that asks of us
all the heart:
to drink the brew of heaven,
to pour out simple
shifting fragrances in words,
or colors, or the forms of things.
How rare is the soul
who knows how precious is the gift
being offered.
The Great Love
is everywhere,
enveloping us
as oceans
enwrap fish,
as sky holds birds and clouds—
yet how rare the soul
who can drink it in
and wake up,
with a passion to share
this poetry of life,
these colors of God’s dream.

Artist's Description

*This poem is woven through with impressions from my times wandering around France — which is an astonishingly beautiful country by the way. It is a celebration of a shift of mind from social conditioning to what I now refer to as “the real world” in which we live not in emptiness, but within eternal Presence. By this I don’t mean to imply becoming “religious” with all the connotations that might come to our minds, but rather alive to the unified fabric of all existence and the radical implications to this: that we are all unique fingers on the one Great Hand of Life…

And I believe that ultimately, that Hand is an open one, teeming with Life, shining with Life’s greatest power of magic and beauty — that quality we call Love.*
