Today I danced with loves’ reality, quirky and carefree. Each step leading to an unexpected rhythm that harmonized the melody of movement. I could feel it in my eyes, the joy of present moment living. I observed its reflection in smiles of acceptance and warmth, magically moving with timeless fluidity. It was the end of expectations.
Today I walked with a wolf who taught me to hunt love.
First, master your thoughts for they are the might behind it all.
Second, conquer yourself for it is your greatest adversary.
Finally, live in truth; it is your strongest weapon.
If all these you accomplish, success will be your discovery.
The silent voice only I know.
Talking from a place only I may go.
Giving me impulses with glimpses,
It’s a direction I may not know;
Nonetheless, it all will ebb and flow,
If only I learn to go.
The chaos of underdeveloped organizational practices. That pretty much sums it up.
I met a man who I never knew. He had lost it all yet his smile showed no sorrow. In fact, most would say it was gay. He told me of his family and how he had lost them all. They weren’t dead, but chose to avoid him instead. I watched the flashes of rue meander his emerald fields. I could see he didn’t mind my knowing. He spoke of the relationships he ruined and the gifts he had lost. He never missed a beat and found a laugh at what his foolishness had cost. He said to learn from his mistakes was what made life so great. He spoke of his success and the life he lived with sparkling gems, making it hard for me not to grin. With every word he spoke I could feel the love it began to evoke. We talked for the remainder of the evening knowing the other we wouldn’t be seeing.
