The Gift

Untie the ribbon of connection,
Unwrap the bright paper of possibility,
Open the box of expectation,
Lift out the unexpected gift,
Turn it round to see it from all sides.

What a breathtaking surprise.
Every angle is a scatter of reflection,
A well of contemplation,
A prismatic offering of expansion.
Darkness and light create each other,
As shifting images of your face reveal my own.

We will live intermingled in this memory,
Content and grateful for our encounter.
One more swim in the stream of love,
To cleanse and refresh ourselves
And each other.

The light in me sees the light in you.

Matryoshka Doll

It all starts off well enough,
A tiny babushka over a painted face glowing with Pride.
So, pop the top and pull out the next.

Oh look, a snarl of Anger.
Pop: Leer of Desire.
Pop: Twist of Fear.
Pop: Tear of Grief,
Pop: Blank-faced Apathy.

Looks like we're getting down to it now.
Pop: Cringe of Guilt,
Pop: Wail of Despair.
Pop!
One tiny glittering nugget of Shame,
My precioussss.

Positive thinking has no power in this nested Hell,
Death, no blessing.
