Poem: And the Heavens Kissed the Earth
When dusk and dawn meet in new-found delight
The heavens opened her arms and enfolded the earth
And he kissed her and held her close
The stars shimmered with unshed, sparkly tear-filled eyes
The cloud rolled out their drums of thunder
And the gentle, shy moon, sighed as she looked from afar
And we, mere mortals awakened to the miracle of life
We dared to embrace our humanity and divinity
And we finally experienced the love that heals
A love that simply is, unconditionally ours.
It re-connected us with our core
And freed our souls from its fears
Unleashing the buried creativity in our being
It broke down our walls, broke open our spirits
And un-locked our chained, bruised hearts
So we reigned in our hurts and allowed our spirits soar
We aligned with our natural flow and filled our bodies with light.
Unashamed, naked we danced and sang out loud
Know that this well of love is already ours
An internal spring that will never cease to flow
It was ours even before creation, ours when paradise was lost
It is already in us, a gift made manifest with every breath we draw
So your life’s journey is not to seek it outside of you
As if it were external to you, open up and let it out of you.
Be willing to be open up and share this eternal truth
That you were created in love, moulded with love and redeemed by love
You are worthy! There’s no need to live life as if you were trapped in a struggle
This love came your way through grace, so choose to live gratefully and graciously
Sow seeds of kindness, value, joy and love. Surrender, accept, allow yourself BE
Dance to the music inside you, hidden in spaces between the rhythms of your heartbeat.
In that sacred moment when the heavens kissed the earth
In that magical hour when dusk and dawn became one
Choose to disconnect to connect, to take a life-pause
To un-plug to truly stay plugged in to your source
And switch off to stay tuned in.
Watch and wait for the sacred hour when the heavens draws the earth in
Take a step back from everything and find yourself in the quiet spaces of your soul’s being
Embrace the peaceful and healing power of silence
Enter the co-creative space, and dare to co-create your destiny with the creator.
