'to my dear friend jr'


thinking
those two years ago
about a far flung love
some twenty years before those two
i cast a hopeful net into that deep past
looking for another you
didnt know that those twenty years before
before your emergence
you were elements 
air
water
clay
premordial fire
the songs of lonely sea birds
the longing of the earth for a perfect Light
the pulsing of the Ocean Mother

some Greater Being drew these 
perfectly intersecting lines
and
these 
to be great friends 
followed in mindfulness
and
with eyes wide open in this wonder
saw
and knew of kindness
and shared gentleness
and knew of the beauty of this most wonderful Universe
and knew of the absence
of coincidence
and the presence
of 
God 

This poem was written
for a most beautiful soul
who became a most wonderful friend.

This is Jenny
and she sees into this world 
with the eyes of Universal love
and believes
with her sleeves rolled up
and fire in her heart 
in a kind and loving God
and in a beautiful future
for all of mankind.

Thank you Jenny, 
for your dreams.
