“Awakening Dreams”

AWAKENING DREAMS

Awakening dreams
Magic practices confuse
Illusions believed

Imagination
Activates inner feelings
Images emerge

Our inner world is
Infinite descriptions of
Impossible scenes

Believing is real
When minds are demonstrating
Divine mysteries

Physical Universe
Holding with arms for comfort
Expands endlessly

Awakening Dreams by Donika Nikova

“You do not have to be good”

“You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting –
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.”

Mary Oliver

“Expanding”

EXPANDING

Paint covered the canvases
In violent washes
Exploding colors
Demanding recognition
Multiverses are
Being created endlessly
Space is expanding
Being filled always waiting
Existence always present

Twisting out through time
Readying for creation
Preparing for exiting stars
Light continues its birth
And what was
Leaves
Disappears
Continuing in reappearances
Finding rebirth within
All its manifestations

“Unending Love”

“Unending Love”

I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times…
In life after life, in age after age, forever.
My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs,
That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms,
In life after life, in age after age, forever.

Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, it’s age old pain,
It’s ancient tale of being apart or together.
As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge,
Clad in the light of a pole-star, piercing the darkness of time.
You become an image of what is remembered forever.

You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount.
At the heart of time, love of one for another.
We have played along side millions of lovers,
Shared in the same shy sweetness of meeting,
the distressful tears of farewell,
Old love but in shapes that renew and renew forever.

Today it is heaped at your feet, it has found its end in you
The love of all man’s days both past and forever:
Universal joy, universal sorrow, universal life.
The memories of all loves merging with this one love of ours –
And the songs of every poet past and forever.”

― Rabindranath Tagore
