Allow ~ by Danna Faulds
handsinspace Jan 2018
There is no controlling life.

Try corralling a lightning bolt,

containing a tornado.  Dam a

stream and it will create a new

channel.  Resist, and the tide

will sweep you off your feet.

Allow, and grace will carry

you to higher ground.  The only

safety lies in letting it all in –

the wild and the weak; fear,

fantasies, failures and success.

When loss rips off the doors of

the heart, or sadness veils your

vision with despair, practice

becomes simply bearing the truth.

In the choice to let go of your

known way of being, the whole

world is revealed to your new eyes.

tossed in waves
looking to the promontory

It says:
read swells
keep your sight
find harmony in the stir
understand how and when to climb
for this is an abrupt hardness
to fall broken

nearer hope
is a mercy
a trough
to reveal clear footing
and hands still strong
shake in lifting

regain sight upon upon the high ledge
the froth below and turmoil ebb
my heart
still beating

Grounded free

My sketchbook is getting damp from the spray
It's a torrent unleashed as
thunder rolls
Midnight black stripped in hot flashes of punctuated amens
Rounds of sounds of liquid laughter shake in the atmosphere
Lyrical clapping voices arise
Millions of drops on millions of leafy palms uplifted
The canopy dances
now in a roaring delight
I hear a waterfall singing your name
because you're missed most intensely in these spaces of awe
You can
You are

these primal fountains
roiling together
this great smiling heart
sun of our living impulse
seed of our being

The day was perforated by a threshold
A distracted post and lintel technicality
All a part of this door I've been painting
It opens out
It opens up
Into joy
But while I was placing tiny brush strokes
In incremental positions
Adjusting for full light
You swung it wide open
You swung it wide open

Let's go!
Love of my life, I'm so happy you're ready

please no chocolate heart
syrupy sentiment mass produced
slid into an envelope
pre-made for a day in a year in a life

please yes warm hand in a cold world held
jumping together into the unknown
adventure made true by love
unafraid to live new
everyday every year this life
please yes my truest love

I want to write my heart to you
and joy in a baby's laugh
and the dance of a field of flowers
and the soft honeyed interior
a warm hand in the dark
and the flame flaring and arcing
the wave's swell, crest and crash
and the mirror opening out
I want to speak to you
of the road home that I know

I want to dress my heart shining
with ribbons and colored paper
the gift you're happiest to open
the one you value most

yesterday I was asking you
to please
not hide your tracks
too well
today I started looking
at my own
unsettling feeling
that you are pulled
in a tidal tug
by a newer moon
but when I see your truth
with my real eyes
I know
maybe this distance is to blame
for my distortion
love is not blind, but true seeing

polarized bright and stormy
the lush green sweeps
rising and falling
in a joyous dance
in music brushed by a thousand leaves
every color, a jewel
I turn to find you
in this perfect moment

we are

this sweeping dance
this one goes out to the one I love

traveling through a large plane
an opalescent sky
wide, encompassing embrace
soft lavender-gray clouds float on a string
hovering like distant islands of heaven
a land promised
tender gradient pink to gray
mile-long notations drift
isolated in blue and soft gold

in shifting rays
your voice is holding me aloft
burnished and blending
drawing me
filling my movement
rounding my heart
the rising moon
the sweet aching fullness
the deepening
twinkling colored night
is to you

I'm drawn
For the one I love... you make me feel fully alive and I thank you

To feel like myself
You loved me there
C'mon silly

She floats on reflected sky
Dueling breezes knitting around her

Flower petal skimming

She slices silver travel lines
Rippling out on hope's own hand
And trusts her bright day journey
All that she needs for the way

Reaching the shore above
She finds him there
Standing in leaves
Kisses waiting
The moon on his shoulder

A puddle of existence
Awake in bed alone
I turn and turn and try to relax
Wryly acknowledging to myself
Trying is not relaxing
So I dive headlong
Into our deepest waters
And I hear your voice
And I know everything will be alright
And you aren't always going to be so far away...

And you are sharing my pulse
And you are breathing with my breath
And my eyes can see with yours
Holding you close

Hoping for soon
Our now
I'm in agony without you my love; you are my burning light, my soul's home in this and every world

my words have become a
ceaseless call to my only mate
lost in the underbrush
engulfed by earnest one-track longing
bethere be there beth ere be there
be there
where has my voice gone?
powerless, it seems
to reach your ear without water
or wind between us

yet still I feel our shining bond
tether sweet
intoxicating scent in the crystal air
holding all I know
I want to know
so yes, precious one
last of our leaf and line
love me into this life
let me
I sing out
touch you
such joy
