Supernal Love, Chi to Life

Lover mine with lovely fair skin, open eyes, bare chest so smooth,

Hover over me with flute in hand to stay and play and plant a kiss

Upon my fit lips at the dawn of a new day drawn from your bosom,

And hold me close against the cold in an emboldened living passion

Born of your compassion for mortal creatures you mean to refashion

In the likeness of your light and life, love and truth, peace and beauty

As an everlasting answer to brahmin prayers that wear into samsara

And this chi shall then forever be free to be all of you to be all of me,

So play some life-giving tune of heavenly fruit upon your sacred flute

That this poor boy may ever rest in the riches of your verdurous grove

In the shadow of tall trees near the sea, waves lapping on a near shore

In your place beyond all places in endless space, laced to you eternally

Most Beloved: Song of John

My eyes penetrate your guise, rough and rugged, to visualize heavenly beauty,
Descended from an almighty Father of lights in an underlying sight of dignity,
Born of woman to be torn upon raising the horn of our salvation in benignity,
With bigotry plotting against your pure chivalry so spitefully to kill innocence,
But you loved with a vast, everlasting love from above, reaching me with love,
And in this was I made your beloved, O beloved, as you bade me abide in you,
Forever true til the death-dew of heaven rests upon my brow, then on beyond,
And on into eternity where once again will I lay my head against your breast,
Hiding myself in the nest of your arms, safe from all harm, alarmed no more,
With kisses of compassion in perfect affection not mired in too-human desire,
And then shall I sing my song, sweet and long, in you where I forever belong

No Slave to You, Only Love

In your eyes is sanctuary, no lies, no prison bars, no far reach to love,
And my soul falls each time you call, so impossible then to stand tall,
But no slave to you, much as my body may crawl, with you above all,
And this is love’s ever-demanding requirement of whole submission,
Still no chains are found, no shackles to explain this throbbing pain,
So deeply rooted, bitter sweet, keeper of my heart apart from all else
As we fly higher, holding on in bold revolt against every expectation
Of those who know no affection, have no peace, and no compassion,
So in this strange journey this poor boy gladly submits, no guilt felt,
As my hands reach up to touch, so much more, joyful tears flowing,
Yet here you have no slave, master beautiful, it is but love, only love

Dance Another Dance With Me

Dance another dance with me in distant dance hall delight

Take me in your arms tonight to glide over glittering floor,
For now together for some space of time in cryptic rhyme,
Unearthly power pulsating through our veins once again,
And hold my body tight this night in bold romantic delight

Catch my quivering heart in your soul to make me whole,
And control my impulses ever before life takes it evil toll,
When sacred curtain descends upon this sorrowful scene,
And we hear the brush of angels’ wings to bring the end

Yes, dance another dance with me in ever bright delight

Please Play Me One Creative Cosmic Song

Looking deeply into your heavenly eyes my heart sighs for love unbound,
Crowned as you are with gold, with jewels, with sun and moon and stars,
And you are now all in all pulsing thru my veins, my soul where you reign,
An inner spiritual domain to make your kingdom to freely rule in wisdom,
To liberate my very self ~ another poor atman ~ from every self-delusion,
And all confusion of this undesirable world of pain in chains of suffering,
And so I ask only that you would play some creative cosmic song for me,
As on bended knee I bow here and now to kiss your feet, so finely sweet,
To then rest my head against your everlasting youthful bosom so strong,
Unfailing guard from every harm and every wrong as you play your song,
And my body with haunting heavenly notes reverberating thru my being,
Seeing, touching, feeling your majesty from above with an infinite love …
And I pray the moment turn to eternity, an unending beginning with you

With Jamie Forever Joined

Curling round you in the cold to warm myself upon your chest
With legs entwined neath thick covers where I take your best
And breathe into my soul the sweet scent of your heart of gold
Catching me up into rapture as yet untold upon pages of time
As we climb this ladder of eternal bliss held in arms so strong
With never a thought of waking in the night from such delight
And you hold at bay frightful demons with all of hellish blight
And I am safe here next to you though they never understand
Or begin to comprehend how one like me can be one with you
My true life of life given to you to live thru me as I live in you
Dearest of the dear … Jamie

Ode to Jamie: Endless Ages Just Begun

Hold my breath in your mouth, take it into your heart
To be part of your life, then heartbeat it out to me again
To begin to live as your soul in mine with mine in yours
To be forever more one in an eternal song just begun
As we dance beneath sun, then moon and stars off afar
And let me gently lay my head to rest upon your bosom
So radiant and strong, so warm and just where I belong
Through the night, tenderly held, caressed, and dressed
Only in your embrace, lying flesh upon flesh, at peace
And the wonder of you will never cease, only increase
Through endless ages young, our quiet song ever sung

My Own Path

When I was a child so wild and free to be most wholly and totally me

You came to see what I might be on this voyage upon this sea of life

And then you issued a decree of clemency for my ongoing pilgrimage 

But I was left bereft of soul salvation that I would seek meek and mild

As your child very wild and free to be whatever I really wanted to be

And so this is the course I struck ~ my own path to climb the mountain

To drink from your fountain of youth and never again to die to life…. 

Take Me, Hold Me

Hold me closely, hold me tightly and please never, ever let me go

Make me yours, make you mine and let me rest in your afterglow

Free me from my cage, take me onstage ‘n let me be in your show

For once tried, for in you to abide and we will let the world know

And all pain goes away with heavenly gain as celestial winds blow

Building Blocks of Life

True love awakens my heart while opening my soul

To teachings of the sages in the wisdom of the ages

For me to firmly build my life without so much strife

And Nature adds a mystical touch to the torch of life

That illuminates my steps forward, upward, onward

As I reach new heights over the plights of this world

And these are the strong building blocks of life now

For me here as I travel on with Beauty as the marvel

And centre of the One to whom I most wholly belong
