From Soul to Soul

soul01_400I have written something to you. 
Not written from my head to
be stuffed into your head.
I have written from my feeling-heart
reaching out to touch into
your feeling-heart. 
(Are your eyes open?  Do you
feel me?)  I am writing longingly
soul to soul.
On this page I am weeping
for the mothers and children
of tomorrow.  On that page
I am screaming in
Earth-fear and mortal pain.
Sometimes my voice lifts
dust from the eyelids of strangers.
(Who is stranger in creation
more than the walking dead?)
Sometimes the sound of a
human being is no more in the
numbness of the world than a
bitter-sweet stutter.  By the end
of the first canto
I am writing to you with
whispers of a lover.
I am writing in love’s language,
from soul to soul.  Having
thrown caution to the wind
(Look how it is here
and the urgency of need spills out
like a crime scene between us!)
I have stepped into the
sacred space of intimacy,
with the dark olives of words
and the blood red wine of agony.

Words from the heart are worth a million times more than those from the mind ... For those who know how to listen... Thank you for the part of your soul David

My voice lifts dust from the eyelids of strangers....
