Gifting: It's a poem dammit - is this the right place?!

Postby chillikazam » Wed Sep 03, 2003 6:00 pm

here's a little something i wrote today --- it is talking about the connections that can happen up at BM and the gift of recognition of another......... i gave this gift on the night of the burn to someone from chicago who is a care giver and leader and who needed some self-revelation - we just danced :-)

if you like it let me know - if you don't let me know!



In that moment,
When the need becomes clear,
When the opportunity emerges,
A bridge of magic

And in that space,
At that moment,
Purity shines;

And Two
Can live a dance,
Creating and holding
A sacred space.

Innocence in bacchanal.
Beauty in absolute being.

I give to you;
Draw the frame,
Bear witness.

I glow
In your radiance,
Your delighted surprise.

I breathe the sublime
Through the joy
Of your being.

We are mirrors;

Just one
Of the ten thousand
Like Plato said: "Practice Dying"

Lovely - thank you!

And as for it being the right place - fuckit - until there is a "right place" I say we highjack the experiences thread for whatever comes up.
