I saw them clasp their hands,

slightly clenched.

They both delight 

each other’s touch in longing.

Their eyes met

with great pleasure

the taste, the smell, the flavor;

The subtle spark of love they both savor.

As another year of my lifeline comes to an end, 
I am blessed 
and filled with gratitude.

A blessing of family and friends I encountered in life, 
who in my aid; 
have eased the torment of my physical, 
mental and spiritual imbalance... 
I persevered. 

Grateful to the whole universe that has sent me 
the perfect people for perfect lessons - 
all of those individuals and situations have trail blazed,
 and ushered me toward my higher good. 

The seventh of December 
is when the light of the world, gleamed from the interior; 
conceived out of a mother's womb.
Decades of five or more... I wandered. 

From the dawn of innocence, 
unto the horizon; 
the setting of dusk is yet unknown adventure.

In my travel towards spiritual journey, 
I know that Happiness is my Destiny.

This day is specially made for me.

SnoopyI would like to be with someone who sees my soul through the windows of ones’ eyes… one who sees that craziness, the ugliness, the weirdness, that evil in me, that silent killer in me… The whole of darkness in me.

But, I would love to be in someone else’s warm embrace who sees this gentleness in me, the meekness, the sweetness, the innocence, that light spirit in me, that beautiful soul in me, that compassion and love within me… The whole of Art in me.

I offered you a golden cup of coffee.

Yet you delight yourself with the beauty of the cup and not the divine taste of the coffee.

This I say to you…

Once you break the cup, you will lose that cup forever.

But I can still brew the same coffee and it will always taste like Eternity.

I will have you enjoy your golden cup of coffee;
Until one day, you will realize that it is the coffee you needed the most, and not the cup. 

I still have more to give you, when you need refill.

This time I will serve it, with a simple, unadorned cup. 
Indulge yourself for now.

A Child’s Longing

Mother's Day
8’x11″ Mixed Media

 I wish you were here when l was in my lowest and saddest time of my life;
I wish you were here to wrap your arms around me, in my moments insecurity;

I wish you were here when I needed someone to talk to;
I wish you were here when I long for someone to stroll with, at the park or at the beach or in a shopping mall… or simply having a cup of tea;

I wish you were here to share my story with you, and tell you how am I doing in this strange country ;
I wish, and l can only wish you were here in this time of uncertainty when anger, fear and trepidation shrouds me;

“Everything will be okay.” is all l can hear from my friends.
Yet nothing compares the unconditional love you gave to me.

I wish you were here so I could speak to you in person how much this love I longed and kept inside me to utter those words,
“I Love You.”

I wish and I can only wish, to you see you before the gates of the temple opens up to welcome you; before your shadow vanish into the mist; before sunrise turns to dusk.

I wish you were here so we both could celebrate this special day.

Happy Mother’s Day to the most wonderful woman who gave me light into this world… My Mother.

Quick Moments

Quick are the moments…..

When I steal a glance at you while you savor the pleasure and beauty of nature;

When you plunder a look at my back and to my gestures, you closely observe;

When we unintentionally catch into each others’ eyes and stare deeply into our souls;

When we tell stories, and you gently pat my shoulder, and hold my hand with slight piercing  pressure;

When we share jokes and exchange brisk wink of our eyes;

When all of a sudden spasmodically, you grab my hand and hastily squeeze it;

When you offer me something to nibble and a drink of wine;

When I hear your sweet, caring voice on the phone;

When I have my thoughts of you while sipping my coffee or enjoying a cup of tea;

When I embrace you in my heart, before bedtime and in the morning when I wake up;

When I send you my caring, morning greetings;

When I listen to music and dedicate a song for you;

When whatever I do, where ever I go, or whoever  I am with…. I  sneak love thoughts of you;

Quick are those moments… in the horizon of my imagination…

My Divine Lover, YOU… will forever be in my HEART.
