Heightened expectations

Heightened expectations
Can have such a gravity
As to cause an internal calamity
Within a heavy heart.
Because from the very start
I had heard over and over
The words that were driving me
To the very brink of insanity.

Falling in the night

I saw a beam of sun wink at me
Before it crashed full force
Into the petal of a flower
Bursting with deep blue veins
And with this solar warmth
Exudes a fragrance
So sweet
We became intoxicated
And threw around heavy words
And forgot to guard the walls we had built
And so they fell
As we fell with the sunshine
And became drunk with love deep into the night

In the royal garden

I hear a rhapsody,
of god’s voice
in the hum
of the afternoon cicada

I see the reflection
of a vast sky
and a vaster god
in the lotus pond
