The divine used the same brush
To paint you and me the same
And with a sliding simple touch
We were born with a different name

Twin flames ignite even from far
Connecting from under the skin
Like Pollux and Castor the star
One light out of a magical twin

Listen to your deep dancing heart
I am in infinite tango with you
We are one flowing soul one part
Even if the mirror reflects two

Healing leaves are now disrobed branches
on the edge of this wilderness.
Many tall Douglas Fir stand sentinel
over 100 foot tall amazing grace — the fleeting leaves
expose the beauty of the moss clad scaffolds
adorned with a lime-grey lichen lace
Nature is my refuge — solid ground to stand
in this harmony and peacefulness.

Jesse Stillwater — December 2018
Left as a comment yesterday, mused by "Healing Leaves" by Reena Sharma:
Dancing alone
     Under a midnight sky

I cry

Screaming your name
     Emotions burning
          In my mind

Searing doubts
     And blistering shame

So insane
     That someone so far away

Is so hard
To let go
           ­                                                   hour
             Wafted in,
        ­      Fusing  
                                   with the smell
                                                             Of earth...(rain-drenched)

   Redolent              of
                     old,               rainy days

             Mellow morning
Enchanting aroma...

Jasmine efflorescence

Brings back memories somehow,....
Counting down and up the steps
Listening for another
Weaving through the restless crowd
Sitting together
Filled to the brim
With emotions of delight and wonder
Yet lonely, so lonely
Walking down a handmade path
Stalling for time
That's already lost.
Sometimes you feel so restless and at peace in the same moment that it doesn't even seem real. Are you awake or asleep?
