The Lover:-

“To Thee, great One, in my turmoil imprisoned,

The glow’ring summer; the Light of all seasons;

In my malady seen, Your river of tears.

Now drowning the toxins, of shadowy fears.


O boundless Love and Spirit of creation --

The dancing Enchantress, which follows my paths.

I lie on rose-buds, as You shield me with thorns,

Weaving, adorning, a quintessence of sorts.”


The Beloved:-

“I am your cute goddess and your daughter too,

The fixed light of your gaze and your rainbow hue.

I have placed a bouquet, of satin above,

So you walk the red silk, of perennial Love.


Sweet rose, I also, feel the pain of your thorn,

But the breath of your wafts will one day expand.

Let go of your prickliness, I’m at the helm;

I carry melodies, from another realm.”

      I saw this last night but was too tired to comment. You are too kind, my friend, but as long as you are writing about love, I am all in. Thank you! Yes, thorns are necessary for learning, or so I believe...they are also necessary to experience deep love...again, so I believe.

      Blessings, and love

      Thank you, my Friend.

      Last night was an accident and quickly unpublished. It was meant for today, so I published it today. Thank you and hope your day continues to go well. Peace.

      I like your observations. The only way, which is meaningful and lasting. (smile)

      This is so beautiful! Thorns and roses belong together, just like two people in love. Thank you my poet friend.

      I've been experiencing a few thorns lately. I love deeply. Especially when it comes to my family. I wonder lately if the love-light has diminished within my own family. If so, it hurts. Thank you for your very timely and lovely poem.

      Peace and love

      Dear Audrey,

      I'm sorry about what would again appear to be a loss. While the roses are there, it's not practical to say this, as it may be hidden and for many the pain is quite real. My empathies.

      True, it is always good to do one's duty, but with the consciousness that ultimately nothing is ours and all is transitory, like the Buddha said. Love is eternal, yes, but it flows with a pure God-presence and a freedom from expectations.

      My empathy in your case is doubled, as I know that sadness has struck before and this has not helped. What can be done? Well, I have been saying the same thing in essays, poems ... even Flash Fiction. My teacher used to say that meditation is the answer to ALL life's problems.

      I believe that you are a wonderful voice teacher and perhaps a life-coach, too, in some ways. You are a beautiful dream of God and as such unique and very special. You have a lot to offer to the world. If you have already done so, then re-read again Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet and his bit on children.

      Actually it applies to adults and close kin, indeed all of us. All comes from the Divine and nothing is ours. Each Soul is in isolation and will not be happy until it finds its way HOME.

      Long response, Audrey, but it is filled with Love and once again I offer my prayerful support. We all are at different rungs of the evolutionary ladder, travelling our own sojourns and as such Jane's perceptions, may and can sometimes be very different from Jack's. Thanks for your sincere input. Om Shanti! (Peace be with you and yours)

      I thank you dearly for your sincere words of wisdom and light. I took your advice and read "The Prophet". Exactly what I need at this time. Now the healing will begin. Thank you kindly for your divine support.

      Love and peace,

      Audrey

      Audrey,

      My pleasure. (El gusto es mio). So glad you found this useful! I am a servant ... I try to serve ... your victory is my victory and your sorrows mine. We are both microcosms in a macro-cosmic world.

      "The power of love liberates the inner world." That beautiful quote is so timely for me today, and for all who are feeling the pain of thorns. Thank you.

      You, too, Dee? I thought that you're sailing in a river of infinity's Light (smile). Ah! I know what you mean. Let us bring down our Beloved's fortitude and Grace. Much Love.

      I love this line: In my malady seen, Your river of tears.

      Now drowning the toxins, of shadowy fears.

      And yes, thorns and roses are both necessary. For without one we will never know the other, just as in life.
