Regret

Dark and wet,
You mark each step
That lies between
Your birth and death.

Desperate,
To free the breath
That chokes, within
Your burning  chest.

Raging,  yet,
You claw, to get
Both arms around
Her beating breast.

And ring, untill
You ring  to death,
Her hope,  that lived,
Inside regret.

Did I Ask My Love to Whisper...?

Did I ask my love to whisper 
Why he loves me, loves me not, 
So his soft lips could remember 
All the kind words he forgot? 

If the sun continued hiding 
'Neath the storm clouds, night and  day, 
Would the oak trees keep on reaching 
Up to heavens golden rays? 

Now, I'll ask you, Dearest Darling, 
One small question: Do you know
If the dew got tired of dew-ing 
Who would kiss the sweet red rose? 

Do you think a girl can blossom 
Like a rosebush, late in in June,  
From the love that shines all brightly 
In your secret, dark cocoon ? 

I need raindrops, I need thunder, 
I need moonlight in my hair
Feel the wild storm-wind blowing, 
Drink the lusty midnight air, 

See the sunlight brightly sparkle   
As it dances on the sea, 
Feel your heart beat hard,as thunder, 
When you whisper, you need me. 










True compassion

(Excerpt from the upcoming book "Living in Love; Making Miracles" by L.S.) 

....It seems to me that being completely responsible is at the very heart of compassion. How else can we be an unstoppable wellspring of love, or the space in which others unspeakable beauty and perfection spontaneously occurs and shines brightly? 

And while It's nice to talk about loving Gods holy children and drawing them near, to do this on a practical level, requires choosing to to be miraculous, over and over again. Embracing another wholly, and loving them exactly as they are and as they are not. 

This is particularly true when it comes to our closest relationships. It's so easy to see how others are not behaving as they ought to, not being as wonderful as they should, evidenced by our continued lack of joy/love/happiness/fun/ intimacy/nachas/fulfillment/health/ affirmation/success in relationships/ chocolate covered Mars bars....whatever! 

And the more we want others to be different, unfortunately, the more they seem to stay the same. And as our frustration increases, so does our sense of helplessness and despair. "Why can't she just stop trying to change me? Why does she keep wanting me to be different than I am? When will she see and accept me for all my good qualities? Why do you always have to keep focusing on the negative?!!" 

This particular song goes very well as a duet, by the way, and can be amazing when it's sung in rounds. The tune is quite repetitive and has a contagious  rhythm.
