Love Poems To Life and Other Lovers

aloby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
When we talked about the inner fire of alchemy and the 10 Attributes of Shamanism, I mentioned creativity and the divers creative expressions that naturally emerge, when or internal energies are in flow and well balanced. If you follow my posts, than you know by now that I love to write ;-). So it is just natural for me, to also enjoy the Art of other writer. Today I feel called to share with you, Love Poems to Life and others, that have moved and inspired me over the years. The beautiful frequencies they radiate have in many moments of my life, touched my heart and fired up my soul with passion. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Love and Blessings
Edith

POEM TO MY LOVER
Oh lift me from the grass,
I die, I faint, I fail.

Let your love and kisses rain,
on my lips and eyelids pail.

My cheek is cold and white,
my heart beats loud and fast.

Oh press it close to yours again,
where it will break at last.aaLOVE POEM TO LIFE
It is I who must begin.
It is I who must begin.
Once I begin, once I try..
here and now, right where I am,

not excusing myself
by saying things would be easier elsewhere,
without grand speeches and ostentatious gestures,

but all the more persistently
…to live in harmony
with the “voice of Being,”
as I understand it within myself

…as soon as I begin that,
I suddenly discover to my surprise,

that I am neither the only one,
nor the first,
nor the most important one,
to have set out upon the road.

Whether all is really lost
or not depends entirely on whether or not
I am lost.”
Vaclav HavelaabLOVE POEM FROM GOD
I HAVE COME INTO THIS WORLD TO SEE THIS,
THE SWORD DROP FROM MEN’S HAND
EVEN AT THE HEIGHT OF THE ARC OF THEIR ANGER
BECAUSE WE HAVE FINALLY REALIZED THERE IS ONLY ONE FLESH TO WOUND,
OUR DIVINE ONENESS

I HAVE COME INTO THIS WORLD TO SEE THIS,
ALL CREATURES HOLDING HANDS
AS WE PASS THROUGH THIS MIRACULOUS EXISTENCE
SHARING ON THE WAY TO EVEN A GREATER BEING OF SOUL,
A BEING OF PURE DANCING LIGHT
FOREVER ENTWINED AND AT PLAY WITH EXISTENCE

I HAVE COME INTO THIS WORLD TO HEAR THIS,
EVERY SONG THE EARTH HAS SUNG, SINCE IT WAS CONCEIVED IN THE DIVINE WOMB
AND BEGAN SPINNING FROM ITS OWN WISH
EVERY SONG BY WING, BY FIN AND BY HOOF, EVERY SONG BY HILL, BY FIELD AND BY TREE,
BY MAN, BY WOMAN AND BY CHILD,
EVERY SONG OF AN OCEAN, A RIVER AND A STREAM, EVERY SONG OF TOOL AND LYRE AND FLUTE,
EVERY SONG OF GOLD OF EMERALD AND FIRE,
EVERY SONG THE HEART SHOULD CRY WITH MAGNIFICENT DIGNITY,
TO KNOW ITSELF AS GOD

I HAVE COME INTO THIS WORLD TO SEE THIS,
MEN SO TRUE TO LOVE
THEY WOULD RATHER DIE BEFORE SPEAKING AND UNKIND WORD
MEN SO TRUE TO THEIR LIVES OF GODS GOVERNANCE,
A PROMISE OF HOPE

I HAVE COME INTO THIS WORLD TO SEE THIS,
THE SWORD DROP FROM MEN’S HAND
EVEN AT THE HEIGHT OF THE ARC OF THEIR RAGE
BECAUSE WE HAVE FINALLY REALIZED,
THERE IS ONLY ONE FLESH TO WOUND
(Love Poems From God: Twelve Sacred Voices from the East and West by Daniel Ladinsky)aaaTO THE LOST LOVER / WITHOUT YOU
My Pillow gazes upon me at night
Empty as a gravestone;
I never thought it would be so bitter

To be alone,
Not to lie down asleep in your hair.

I lie alone in a silent house,
The hanging lamp darkened,
And gently stretch out my hands
To gather in yours,
And softly press my warm mouth
Toward you, and kiss myself, exhausted and weak-
Then suddenly I’m awake
And all around me the cold night grows still.
The star in the window shines clearly-
Where is your blond hair,
Where your sweet mouth?

Now I drink pain in every delight
And poison in every wine;
I never knew it would be so bitter
To be alone,
Alone, without you.
Hermann Hesse
