Meeting My Muse in Melbourne

MEETING MY MUSE IN MELBOURNE

This time
the two of us
come together
as if we had
never been
apart.
We know
each other
as only
old lovers
can.
And we realize
our time
together
is too precious
to waste.

Look. the Moon is Blushing

LOOK. THE MOON IS BLUSHING

I can hear the laughter of the sea
as it plays with the white sand.
A little bite here, a little lick there.
Their passion is building
and the spray is starting to fly.
No wonder the moon
is trying to hide behind the clouds.
Doesn’t she know
that the two lovers
have nothing to hide?
Actually, she’s the one
who has gotten them both
so turned on.

Yes! Yes! Yes!

Posted on

YES! YES! YES!

It’s the naked dancer
that draws closest
to the heart of God.
Why is that so surprising?
It’s the naked dancer,
so freely whirling,
that has not only heard
the invitation
but has answered
Yes! Yes! Yes!

The Secrets of Love

THE SECRETS OF LOVE

My tavern keeper tells me secrets
that no one else could know.
He drinks like a fish, smells like a goat,
and laughs like a braying ass.
But, the secrets he knows
are better than the wine
that he serves me for free.
He knows the ways of love.
I think he may have even
written the book. One day,
when I think he is drunk enough,
I’m going to ask him.
I can already hear
the braying of his laughter.

Bottoms Up!

Posted on

BOTTOM’S UP!

Stop being
so incredibly dainty.
Sipping
from the jug
of God’s love
is an insult.
Ecstasy is meant
to be chugged.
And face it,
all of us
need to be smashed
with such joy.

The Language of Love

THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE

I heard the Happy One
call my name.
Those around me
thought it was
just the buzzing
of a fly.
I winked,
and of course,
the fly winked back.
The two of us know
God’s love
surrounds us
on every side.
Neither of us
could stop laughing.

God’s Laughter

Posted on

GOD’S LAUGHTER

I think is was God’s laughter
that formed the worlds
and stars we see and know.
Maybe a quiet little chuckle
is how it all began. But,
it was his knee-slapping,
cosmos-shaking belly laugh
that brought tears to his eyes
and each of us into his heart.

Now You Know

Posted on

NOW YOU KNOW

To know God is to understand
we are free to say a holy “Yes!”
to all creation. Knowing God
is to understand there is no word
for “No” in God’s heart.
Now you know
why I cannot keep myself
from such joyous laughter

The Party Is Just Starting

Posted on

THE PARTY IS JUST STARTING

Hold on tighter
and I’ll spin you again.
The dance has just begun.
Together, we will twirl
among the stars.
Together, we will whirl
among the planets.
Hold on tighter.
The music is getting louder
and the wine has yet
to be served. Tonight,
my heart is on fire
and there’s no limit
on love.

Come On, the Band Is Playing

Posted on

COME ON, THE BAND IS PLAYING

Stop being
so very afraid
of letting go.
The arms
of the king
are there.
You won’t fall,
I promise.
Let go
and feel the
ecstasy of love.
Then you too
will shout
and want to
join the dance.
I’ll wait for you.
But, please hurry!

All We Need To Do Is To Wake Up

Posted on

ALL WE NEED TO DO IS TO WAKE UP

Awakening
to fruits and grains
and little pots
of wine and milk,
I realize
I am being courted.
I hear the soft sounds
of your singing
and my heart
is comforted.
Even before
I can utter
a hesitant response,
the light of
all creation
fills my emptiness
and I know
the meaning of love.

A Cosmic Jig

Posted on

A COSMIC JIG

How difficult it is
for God to dance
in the midst
of stained-glass frowns.
Doesn’t anyone else
hear his booming laughter?
Get naked.
It’s time to pray.
Let’s all join the holy one
in a cosmic jig.

Don’t Be Afraid to Love

Posted on

DON’T BE AFRAID TO LOVE

Don’t be afraid to love.
Be afraid instead
of trying to bottle up
the cosmic joy of creation.
Can you hold back
the heart of God?
So don’t try. Just
let love flow.
The you will begin
to understand why
I am always laughing.

Better Than A Love Note

BETTER THAN A LOVE NOTE

I was already asleep, dreaming of love,
when a star came crashing down
through my bedroom window.
As soon as I heard the laughter
I called out her name.
No one but her could love
me that much. She has
has a passionate streak that can melt
mountains, boil oceans
and lead me straight
into the heart of the beloved

This Morning

Posted on

THIS MORNING

I awoke this morning
to the sound
of God laughing.
Then I saw him
dancing among the sunbeams.
Unless I am mistaken,
I am sure I heard him
invite me to join in
with him.
