Dos soles

1 Atardece en Delhi. El sol rojo desciende tras la bruma. Sol pasión. Sol dolor. Sol amor. Corazón sangrante. 2 Amanece en Tárcoles. El sol blanco asciende tras la niebla. Sol gracia. Sol paz. Sol amor. Corazón luminoso. Delhi: Atardecer y Qutab Minar (Foto: BDW) https://videopress.com/v/xUStiSCf?preloadContent=metadata Amanecer blanco en Tárcoles: 6 de setiembre 2020

A Stroll through the Rock Garden

As I continue to enjoy the beauty of summer in Brooklyn, I am drawn to the simple, quiet places where I know crowds do not gather or overwhelm. This afternoon I wanted to find such a place to walk and pondered where to go. This morning I had been thinking of the Zen aesthetic concept … Continue reading A Stroll through the Rock Garden

Rumi: Giving Yourself

Watching summer blooms at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, I am moved by their loving magnanimity. They give their vitality generously to hummingbirds, bees, butterflies, bumble bees, fireflies, and any other visitors who feed from their sweet heart. Canada Goldenrod (Solidago canadensis) Loving Spirits, the summer flowers give their delicious energy without asking their guests for … Continue reading Rumi: Giving Yourself

Drácena en flor

La drácena (Cordyline terminalis) sólo florece al cumplir diez años de vida. La planta de nuestro jardín en La Libélula ha florecido justo ahora, en fechas del festejo navideño que para mí simboliza el nacimiento del Amor personificado. ¿Qué significa el florecimiento de la drácena roja? Para mí, el nacimiento, crecimiento, maduración, crisis y renacimiento … Continue reading Drácena en flor

Rumi: Four Streams

I have been pondering, for months, Rumi's poem "Your First Eyes." He speaks of four streams that run inside the lover's soul-heart. I have been wondering what these spiritual currents might be. A lover has four streams inside,of water, wine, honey, and milk.Find those in yourself, and pay no attentionwhat so-and-so says about such and … Continue reading Rumi: Four Streams

Simplicity and Love

Last night October ended with a full moon showing its glowing face through a veil of cirrocumulus above Tárcoles. This morning, November arrived with a soft, luminous dawn over Cerro Turrubares.

Rumi: Speak with Love

When I am wordless, I read Rumi's poetry. It speaks to my heart and soul. As I feel my speechlessness in the tropical night, I come upon his poem "Clouds": ...What we sayis a caravan bell, clouds moving across.Traveler, don't try to decide where to stop.(...)Stay light on your feet and keep moving.Speak any language, … Continue reading Rumi: Speak with Love

Dos seremos Tres: El viento nos llevará

Yacemos desnudos mirando al cielo después de habernos amado sobre las piedras del río. "Mirá los cúmulos", me decís en farsi con tu voz nacida del mar. "Esperan el nacimiento de la lluvia". Yo los observo pasar mientras coloco la palma de mi mano sobre tu vientre húmedo y mis dedos alargados sobre el calor … Continue reading Dos seremos Tres: El viento nos llevará
