Reflections of Inner Self

With body yet can’t be touched or seen

A fragrant essence unknown to any nose

Incomparable intimacy easily overlooked

Expansive beyond comprehension


Always with us

Yet often forgotten

Creativity beyond expression

The spark that can’t be extinguished


Here is our guide who does not intrude

Inspiring the beholder of beauty and goodness

Without bringing attention to itself

Irrepressible even in toil and trouble


To lay our grief before its silent presence

We find new depths of compassion

Offering it our weariness or despair

We realise resilience, hope and faith


Fear of loss dissolves in it’s eternal fullness

Affirming the imperishable

It embraces our fragility

Prompting care and compassion for all


Greater transcendence invites us to be bolder

As overwhelming inevitabilities make us falter

A journey through time and getting older

Elusive joy buoys the frailty of form


The more at stake invested in these unseen hands

That always support through testing trials

Comes knowledge and certainty of purpose

In every nudge that stirs us to hold our own


When there’s no more to loose

We find nothing is lost

Then love without cause reveals

The most loved of loves


The dearest friend of friends

Who is always at our call

When the eyes to see are opened

What more is there but be its offer each moment


Purpose arises in sharing the silent treasures

From a simple gesture in being present

To delight as a creative channel flows forth

From non-resistance to being its hand and voice


Thank you to this ever new mystery

To those who play its precious parts

May we all align to its boundless presence

Through gifted minds and hearts
