trees sway, people are playing with a toy helicopter.
The little boy needs help with his toy, up it goes high
into the air & down it floats, spinning. The hammock is
empty, the sound of camp workers running machines. I
did kriya on the beach this morning. I did it on the
sand, I did it and the sun fell upon my body as it rose
in the sky & warmed me as I breathed into the day. I
breathed into you, I breathed all over you, into your
ears, onto your toes, I breathed love all over you.
Love give me life, life give me love, give me life
love, give me love life. O the beach I sit, I am alone
in a group. I sit and write, the sun upon my face, more
freckles grow. Children playing in the surf, running in
and out. Laughter behind me, beach music playing.
Someone is goofing with a song. There is a sailboat on
the horizon, whales exhale nearby, long lengths
swimming, the moon is in the sky with the sun shinning.
Bliss is this, this is bliss. Words come emptily to me,
come into me, don’t leave me empty. I can fill myself, I
can fill someone else. Can you fill me? Can-You-Fill-Me?
Waves crash into me deeply, tilting me forward into the
rush, I tumble, I tumble deep into the void, the void
that is you. I feel a void in me. Where is the fullness
since I met you? I feel the void in you. Will you be
filled? I feel the vacancy in your heart, and we are
miles apart. Can we find our way into each other’s hearts?
My heart is bursting at the seams.
I look at the past, I look at it as a movie, a movie I was
the star of.
I am no longer a part of it.
I want no part of it,
let it lay where it is, in the past.
