FAITH FORWARD FRIDAY: ANSWERS AND THE LAST LOVE & PASSION POEM #29

This has been a week of many changes and challenges for me. I only know that this morning. I didn't realize while each day was unfolding that I was shedding another layer. I was purging. Giving up some ghosts. I see that clearly this morning. I feel happy in my heart. There are some exciting possibilities on the horizon. I believe I have found my tribe and they have accepted my offer to help. This is Divine. I asked someone to co-write a poem with me and he said yes! How Divine!

I am getting answers to the things I am asking about and things I am asking for. This week was illuminating in a very special way. I have stepped into another phase. I feel it. And I like. And I am not afraid.

Love Being Loved


i have loved
being embraced
by man

but there is no embrace
like the enduring
and gentle
yet freeing embrace

of the Spirit

i have loved
making love
to man
but there is no love made
like the love

of the Spirit
remaining ever
as One
with you

not separating
after moments of ecstasies
to become duality
once more

ever as one

ever as One
in the loving
embrace
in the climactic
high
of an inner life
that sustains
and remains
eternally

and I need such
sustaining
and eternally
remaining
don’t you?

ever as one
ever as One
in the eternal
sweet
Love embrace

of the Spirit.

Hey James Tubman!
Thanks for coming by...I do so appreciate all your pearls of wisdom. And yes that poem is really great---you have to see it in the way that it is laid out, unfortunately, this blog format does support it. But its still lovely nonetheless.
