Incarnation of Love

My friends had a handfasting ritual on their land the day after the Autumnal Equinox. As a group, we called in the directions with energies of love and joy and creation and gratitude. I was in the cardinal direction of the north and I wrote a poem for the ceremony.

Several friends have left this plane of existence in recent months and my grief traveled below the surface of words. I am grateful to Elizabeth and Owen for asking me to write a poem, and for getting me out of Arizona for a few days, and for introducing me to so many new friends.

Big love has shaken me loose again. Not creating is akin to dying. I am ready to create (live) again.

On the Occasion of Elizabeth’s and Owen’s Betrothal (9/23/2017)

This is an invocation
a Blessing
a shifting of present, past and future

This is an invocation
to the Power of Witness
to the Collective Embodiment of Love—
the constant pulse among us,
among the stones, the stars, the ancient seas and trees
finding still point between the laced hands of two lovers.

This is an invocation
to Beauty — that which makes us want to live
to the Impulse to
touch and kiss and share and create
to Divine Free Will
to the Knowledge that we are Love Love Love

This is an invitation,
Dearly Beloveds,
To Dance the Beauty before us, behind us, above and below us

This is an invitation
To Notice —
heart-shaped stones, wind-swept branches, drops of water vapor, ravens
chuckling, rays of sun shining through clouds

This is an invitation
To Attend the Devotion manifest between two souls—
the light shine from their eyes, their fingers, their palms
like Milky Way Flowstar
Celestial gift for us to remember we are Love Love Love

This is a salutation
to Sun, Moon, Earth and Sky
This is a salutation
to the Beauty before us, behind us, above and below us
This is a salutation
to Here and Now
This is a salutation to Love Love Love

This is a celebration of Co-creation

This is a celebration of
Dreamers, storytellers, and story-makers

This is a celebration of Owen and Elizabeth
Off-grid-pioneer-gypsy-punk King and Queen
Fierce gentle nest builders
Telepoetic cosmic communicators
Weavers of Love
Lovers of creatures
Sharing their epic song – in medias res
And Believing in Love Love Love

Peace and love to you!
