Where we gather

this

this life

this life

is eating me alive
and I'm giving myself ...
I'm already yours

enter me
come
you're already within
me

...

me
is deconstructing
itself ~
herself

bits and pieces
bits
and
pieces

still
all interwoven

one
with it all
every bit
and piece
part
of the
one web

one

time
less
space
less

bits and pieces

a new
configuration
of God

come
have it all
I'm yours
already

"we are within each other
all along"
- like Rumi said

and of course
he was
right
my heart knows
has always known

my soul rejoicing
in a feast
of home coming
and being welcomed
in these caves ...

These caves!
Ah ... they showed up again
unsurprisingly
in this
surprising moment

I am ...
... these caves
are
... within me ...
where old souls
gather
tired and fullfilled ...
from their journey

rich
with jewels of
embodied wisdom

even the scars ...
radiating love
... and every fibre of the
worn off clothes and
the moon kissed skin ...

the skin ...
soft from journeying through
mist and clouds
flying through the air
(do you remember ... we met there?)

the skin ...
marked by
and touched by
the dance between
inside
outside

and
under the skin ...
the scents ... the colors ... the quiet ones
sunken deeply into and under the skin
sharing their stories from within
(shhh listen quietly)

the feet ...
the feet ...

enriched
with stories from
the earth
from her skin
from within her belly ...
from her heart beat

... under
... under
within ....
the earth ...

... the resonance of the sound
of her beating heart ...
pulsating with your
one human
heart

(I can't even touch on the
vastness of experiences that
you went through ... beautiful embodied
wandering Soul)

my old friend ...
don't be surprised to feel welcomed
here

... these caves always knew you would
arrive
...
once

... no matter how long it would take
you ... to experience, what you needed to
experience
and touch
and to be touched by ...

and ...
to find this way
back home

the closer this home was coming
the more you were
at home within

every step
meeting
a crackling eucalypt leaf

sand, clay, the cold
and fresh
morning dew ...
being in this living conversation

... these feet
... these feet ... of yours ...
your bodily connection to your path
walking this earth

the closer you came
the more
every step
every smell
every infinite opening
of every moment
had already become

home

and still ...
there is this place
where we gather
here
by the fire

within the caves
under the stars

come ... old soul
pilgrim
wanderer

my old friend ...

come ...
you are welcome
you are not alone
rest by the fire
where we gather

let's tell stories
let's celebrate
let's be quiet
let's dance
let's laugh
shed tears
eyes open
eyes closed

resting our hearts
in soft embraces

recognizing each other
by the frequency
of our lived lives
embodied Souls.

let's dance each
other
even deeper

home.

You belong.
Here.
You are welcome.
Here.

Remember
THIS place

and the place ...
where we gather.
