She treads on my Heart





Silently, gently

She treads on my heart

Moving quietly

Up my womb

Teasingly she awakens me

Hears my secret desire

Pleasure is mine, she says

Use it to worship me

Bring to me your deepest mystery

And it will release you into the temple of love

Passion fills your tender spaces

Love wing around your heart

Her strong and powerful wings

Wakes you up from your slumber

Eros arise

He who is divine

Filled with the knowing

Of the union within

my heart





my heart
silent like a mirror
reflects the voice of its master
my heart
the silent mirror
my heart
absorbed
in the love and devotion
of its own reflection

Bhakty Maa




Bhakty Maa
Kali Maa
Ma

She dances within me
Her strength moves my feet
She dances through me
Her power fills my speech
She dances with me
Her love embraces my heart

Sweet, sweet mother
I taste your fragrant compassion
I disappear into your eternal embrace

Your eternal love calls me
Your infinite being steers me
Your endless presence guides me into
My deepest heart.

Heart of hearts
Pierce my mind
Allow the light of Mercy
To shine on my ignorant self 

The Hero




My warrior can sit back,
smoke his pipe at the end of a long day.
He has saved the damsel,
he has answered her cries.

Pierced the heart of the dragon,
setting the flames free.
No longer does she need to be sacrificed.
No longer does she need to pay the price.

Pure in white.
Rose in her heart,
flowers in her hair.
Heart radiant with love
Light flowing through her eyes.

Beholding all as love manifold
Love for the One
has no borders,
no boundary,
unconditionally flowing forth
from the eternal spring
buried deep
in earth red
liquid hot
in the Mother’s flaming heart.

Wings of Love




You carry me
Nestled in the warmth
of your breast

Wings spread
Heart aflutter
Strength in fragility

Tiny bird bones
Carry and support
 with divine power

My heart grows wings
My throat clucks
My feathers shiver with joy
As love move through me

The sky turns red
Awash with Truth

I fly into Your pulsing Heart

My wings neither scorch
Nor do my feathers singe

I am Love
I am Love
I am the Dove
I am the Wings of Love

Candle in my Heart




Thighs shiny with heat
Taut muscles
Awaiting touch

Belly moving in the haze
Soft on soft
Yearning for caress
A candle of love lit
In my sacred chamber
Passion drips from the walls


Nipples tight with love
Pulling up the want
Into the wide gaping
Open heart
Aching for union
With the only One

He who is fire
My mind explodes at the sight
Of his flaming desire
My soul cries out
Come for me,
Make me yours

He takes me,
Circles around the sky,
Returns once more,
Surrounds me

I melt into his passion
Wax running down naked skin
His dancing flame
Penetrates into the dark

Gathers me and my heart
Rides us into infinity
Returns once more

Feel the arms of Love
Carried by wings of desire
Powerful, passionate
He carries me into a new day

Hope



Today hope was born
as I received my Purusha
in my Heart

She is carried by Faith
on the wings of Love

Hope of fulfillment
sweet nectar of life

Hope that the Golden City awaits
that he will make me whole

Hope that the virgin needs be no more

Hope that the marriage made in heaven will be

She rides in a chariot
drawn by two beasts
tamed and reigned
Intent on her goal

Hope offers the Holy Grail
the waters that flow
the red and the white
rushes to meet

secret
sacred
marriage
introduced by Hope divine

Holy Night




Your Holy Light
Shines on the deserted plains of my being

You carry the lamp
That hushes my heart

As a babe in arms I become
When I hear your voice of sincerity

The Holy night answers
In silent reverence
As It witness the
Star of Love born

Returning love to my eyes
A miracle I behold
My soul is filled
With flowers of mercy,
Compassion and tenderness
Surrounded by your sacred heart.

Floods



My heart floods 

Gates can no longer hold 

Love rushing down the 

Canals of my being. 

Overgrown moss of doubt, 

Fear-ridden boulders held 

Down by cold green tendrils 

Torn out of their muddy prisons, 

Set free by the blue rain of grace. 

Rapids of deep peace 

Cascades into forgotten pools, 

Filled with golden shining fish, 

Carrying jewels to the surface, 

Received into the pouch 

Of my deepest self.

My Sacred Heart

Forgiveness by Jenna Vincent
http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/jenna+vincent


My Sacred Heart 

My heart sinks, 

On fire, 

Setting into the ocean 

Flaming arrows of light 


I breathe in the Sun 

The sweet saltiness of the sea 

Receive its soothing warmth 

To paint a path of golden light 


Amber liquid 

Searing my throat 

Flowing down into my hurting self 


Sewn together with love’s intent 

Accept the agony of the piercing needle 

Winding in and out 

Attaching the bridal gown 

With the silken thread 


New choices 

Sanctity to be restored 

Free the sacred heart 

Undo the silken cord

The Light is supernal
The Light is eternal
I Am the Light

The Light is my inner radiance
I Am the radiant Light
I Am the radiance
I Am the Grace that fills the world.

Words have no meaning
They veil and shroud
The emptiness
Words contain all meaning
They embody emptiness
They hold all existence
  
I am the bird
I am the cage
I am the bars of the cage

I am the captive song
I am the feeling in the heart

I am the captive bird
I am the one who captured the bird
I am the one who sings
I am the one who wrote the song

There is no beginning
There is no end
None of this is outside of myself
There is no distinction
No separation
Between bird, heartsong, cage and the wide open sky

I am free
Captured in matter
I suffer and toil
In ecstatic union
A red chested bird
Soaring in a cage!!

Ode to my Lord



Your love snakes like a fiery river
undulating through my soul

Setting alight the liquid desire within
igniting the passion for the Real

White-hot flames
Tempers the metal
Forges the steel
Honing my soul

Your love flows like a river of ecstasy
Melted ice seeps into my bones
Pooling love into the deserted plains
of my forsaken heart

Your love roars like heavenly winds
Screeching through my throat,
Howling with unearthly delight,
Sweeping me through the darkness,
Into the tunnel of light

With the touch of your fiery eyes,
the pure-white fire of your mind
with the gentlest whisper
the kindest word
With the lightest touch
of your beautiful hand
You melt the iron bars
that trap my soul

Your love breaks my cage
conquers the dragons of fear
Your love sets me free

Only to return
to the Eternal Spring

Where the Two becomes the One

Holy Temple


Leave your shoes outside the door
before you enter the Holy Temple.
Only purity allowed,
Love by design.
No burning bushes,
no thorn crowns,
no regalia,
symbols or stories.

Strip yourself naked,
remove all layers.
He is waiting inside,
fragrant and moist,
promising ecstasy.
Hold nothing back.

Emptiness filled,
the desert blooms,
the night sky is filled with stars.

At last,
skin on skin.
Strong thighs
and that which can fill my Cup.
The yearning to become one
rolling through muscles,
up into bones,
ligaments, sinew and nerve.

Finally,
I disappear

Mysterium Tremendum



Mysterium Tremendum, the terrible and awesome mystery

Your face is masked, shielded from prying minds

You cannot be known, by reason, study or dissection

Tear the veil in impatient intellectual pursuit

Tear the Soul, rip her apart

Cast aside the tendrils, of gossamer heavenly silk

Oh mysterious One, both tremendous in your action and being

I tremble in front of your arched gates



Image -  The Wounded Deer by Frida Kahlo

Beauty



Lush purple
Robes of a queen
Holy is She
Who loves me
For who I am
No pretense needed
No specific robes
Prayers straight from the Heart
She is my Mother
The world Her womb
Her arms protect my mind
Against the complex deviance
Simple,
Innocent,
Straight from the Heart
Mine to Yours
All made sacred by Love’s Law

Forbidden City




A forbidden city of lights
This is where All resides
Hidden behind the gates of ignorance
Cursed are you
The beggar outside
Who cannot see that you belong within

Open your eyes
See the Truth
End your self-imposed
Exile.
You are the City of Lights

The Angel of Love



Love arrives,
unbidden, uninvited
cloaked by darkness,
unseen by most.

Carrying an armful of lilies
and in the other,
he holds a spear high.

A white lily for you
my sleeping princess,
as he kisses her awake.
The flower of innocence restored.

And another,
still wet with tears,
belong to you:
compassion to live in your heart.

And this one,
my sweetest love,
stood in the greenest fields,
danced the wildest
in the golden light,
and she carries your name.

A thousand years have passed.
You have always belonged to me.
I have come to be with you,
to wake you up,
to the memory of who you are.

It is time he says,
gently embracing her body
thrusting the spear into her heart.


Cauldron of Love





Dark, dark, swirl the waters
 in the black Cauldron.

She looks into its smooth surface
 and sees only the  reflection of imperfection.

No, she cries, madly swirling the waters
breathing her poisonous breath
into the words,
‘you are not good enough’,
‘you need to be more, better, taller, thinner, kinder,
sadder, happier, angrier, slower, faster, whatever,
you need to be perfect,
you need to be more like Her’

Slowly she crawls away, never looking back,
ignorant of Her Divine reflection in the
blackness of the dark waters of the Cauldron
of Life.

The Swan Princess




She glides gracefully on the mirror of water
Content to bask in the beauty of her own reflection

Arching her neck proudly
Arrogantly the crown glints in the light of the sun

One unto herself
She needs no-one

The waters stir
Passions churn
Turmoil
Old rotten leaves mulched into mud
Flies up, black everywhere
Water churns, splashes,
Intense waves form

In the white foam He appears
Wearing the moon on his crown

He surrounds her
Make her His
His embrace splits her being, pierces her heart
Radiant light snakes through their bodies
Conjoining them into One

Feathers splayed, wings spread
Stretching to the ends of the Sky
Necks arched
A halo of light as two crowns meet
Graceful heads bowed
 Love fulfilled

Grace



I drink from Her cup
Filled to the brim
She shares drops of pure love

My beached heart
Soaks in the lapping waves

White horses galloping
Fear tamed by Grace

Like a child I can be
Trusting
Lying basking in the sun
Trusting
Loved in my deepest self
Collecting shells on the sand

I have been found
Wandering aimlessly in the dark
Struggling to reach a ghostly mountaintop
No steady footing
No sure guide

She saved me
Rescued me
Such love I have never known

What seemed far in the distant past
What seemed impossible to reach in the future
Is here now

So I reach for the stars
Filling my basket
With apples of Love

Peering into the pools of Her eyes
In the Grace mirrored

Of my deepest Self

I am the One


I am the One
The eye of Love
Carried by wings
Growing from the heart

Stretching into dancing feet
In love with the Mother Divine

I pulsate with desire
I give to please
Surrounded by rhythm
Of a beating heart

Vortices of love and desire
Spinning in each round
Left for the moon
The other way for the sun

A pathway
Filled with fragrant
Moist purple flowers
Blossoming in the heat

A perfect white lily
Trumpeting its want
Dew trickling down
Its stem

As She opens her Heaven
To let the moon
Fly to the sun

Words





Words

words are all I have
they do not suffice
how to explain?
how to express 
this incredible love within?

I have become mute
and dumb
my tongue no longer exists

as I move, 
love moves through me
out into the world
becoming a grand old oak tree

as I breathe, 
love breathes through me
out into the world
and becomes
raindrops on my window pane

as I sit, 
it is as though Love
will crush me with Her embrace

I surrender, 
I weep
I am overcome
I disappear
only the golden embrace 
of soul
here

I release all words
I set free all desire
I release the need to express
as I burn in Love's fire

allowing it to consume me
oblivion
the oblivion of my separate self
washed away
observing the totality
in terror
as the river breaks its banks
taking all shelter with it

Love becomes my shelter
Love becomes my kingdom
Love becomes I
I become Love

words no longer make sense
words no longer have value
words no longer exist
only as Love allows

She Who Is




Silently, gently

She treads on my heart

Moving quietly

Teasingly she awakens me

Hears my secret desire

Pleasure is mine, she says

Bring to me your deepest mystery

And it will release you into the temple of love

Passion fills your tender spaces

Love wing around your heart

Her strong and powerful wings

Wakes you up from your slumber

Eros arise

He who is divine

Filled with the knowing

Of the union within

Such is Love




Love undresses you

Peels off the layers

The masks of pretence

The coats of defence

Love reveals me

Bares me in all my nakedness

Behold! Such innocence

Radiant beauty within

Love leads me

Into the fires of hell

Into the the pit of fear

Into the mouth of the lion

Love victoriously

Triumphantly

Ushers me out

Surrounded by legions of light

Love soars above me

Flying high

Holding my heart aloft

Wings tied to my feet

Never look down, never look down

Love is straight ahead!

Shakty




I am the pigment of the paint

 the stroke of the knife

I am the stretch of the canvas

Receiving the paint

 a lover’s embrace

I am the seeing eye

The flame of the dancing vision

I am the breath

Giving birth to my form

I am the form

giving breath to myself

eternally breathing, birthing, breathing

I am the ecstasy

Of green rolling in the red

Blue gliding into resin

Oil snaking down

I am the painting

Making love to myself

Shiva




My heart belongs to Shiva

Oh my shivering heart
Fear not to trust
The call of your Soul

Follow wherever it may lead
From darkness into the Light

He beckons
He calls
He shows the Way

Sweet surrender into the moment
Drawing ever near

Closer than the eternal heartbeat
Closer than the shiver
Under your skin



Painting by Hettienne

Divine Mother



Your presence fills me
Your child I am

You move through my heart
Painting it with love’s design

Compassion flows forth
from your hands
Your touch opens me
I am your Voice

I carry you in my hips
I carry you in my gait
My womb holds your Secret Mystery

My breasts aflame with light
Radiant through my sacred heart
Feeding your children
Wherever we are

Oh Divine Mother
You move through me
You move me
You transform through me
You transform me

Eternal is my gratitude
Blessed are You

You are my wealth
You are my beauty
You are my gift

You I give to the world.

Dreaming of Shiva




DREAMING OF SHIVA

The love in his eyes
Awaken my desire

Golden light snaking
Across my skin
Perfumed fingertips
Trace every valley

My body dances
In rhythm to his drum

The sound of my heart
In harmony
With the taut violin
Every caress plucks a string
Offering every
Sweet sound, every sigh
To the Divine Fiddler.

He who carved my instrument
He who wrote the score
Honey fills the cavity
Of my chest
Heart set alight

Winged doves
Release through my body

The thrill of their feathers
Touching
My bare soul

Wave upon wave
Ripple upon ripple
Finding their way
To the heavens above

Soaring through the sky
Diving down to scoop up again
And again
