love and light begun

Lamps that gleam
and spread a dream
of love and light
throughout the night
to break the dark and stagnant air
to bring in ions bright and fair
that take away our ache and woe
exchange it with the need to know
from where it comes this light of truth
and how it speaks the might of sooth-
sayers leave broad hints around
tossed on the leaves upon the ground
that seeps into the earth we walk
and through our bones and sounds of talk
that drift upon the air once more
as we will wonder what's in store
we feel the journey 'neath our feet
as wisdom travels deep retreat
past loam and sand and roots of trees
where gnomes await on bended knees
to grasp the light of wisdom through the earth
and mine it into a brand new birth
they hide it in the pinkish rock of salt to sleep
and dream the day
when sunlight shall peep
through broken clay
and soil and sand
by work of beast, machine and man
and so once more the light will glow
through harnessed heart of love it shows
the beauty of all love is one
from rock to light to sun ...
we have begun

While gazing upon my Himalayan salt crystal lamp, the candle flame glowing and flickering, I wrote the above. I love to step into a moment and simply write in rhyme as the pen flows across the page in a single stream of movement without pause - to write in release of control or perfection to allow a form without rejection to just come into being and the words to spring forth and shape themselves from one to the next.

And how appropriate that the light should call me this morning when yesterday was our Winter Solstice - a time of longest night followed by return of the growing light!
