The Moment

“there are some poems
that we leave behind
some that leave us behind

while some just live
in the heart

crumble, sometimes

and are reborn
when you smile again.”
― Sanober Khan, Turquoise Silence

You sing your song as you light the lantern’s candle and set it free on the sea breeze. Once I am close enough to see it, I follow its trail back to you.

Meanwhile, I weave my stories, casting them out into the open air, just as dandelions release their seeds to venture out into all directions, trusting the wind to take them where they need to go. Some may see the dandelion as a weed. Yet you see them as little patches of sun that dot your garden.

As the sun sets in an array of golden red and orange hues, the moon rises. She heralds in the depth of violets and blues, while star lights twinkle through the thin veil of wispy clouds. It is then, in the twilight of the day’s end, that our paths finally cross and our eyes finally meet.

your hand touching mine. this is how galaxies collide. – Sanober Khan

Our hands are the next to meet, as the milky way spreads out like a blanket across the night sky. Yes, this is where galaxies collide. Still, without the need for any spoken words, our eyes hold steady, as they drink in the sweet essence of the other. We have met many times before, but only in the ethers of our dreams in this lifetime. You the songwriter and I the wordsmith can finally bring our talents together. The irony is set in the sweet silence of our embrace under the starlit night.

my dear, I have nothing to say.
my heart burns
like the evening sky.”
― Sanober Khan

In the moment we have both desired and only imagined for all too long, we embrace under the stars. “The Knowing,” and “The Promise” are now born together in the flesh in the moment of our meeting.

It is here, it is now. We choose to savor the bliss of the unfolding. We choose to wait (just a little longer) before moving into the next level of unveiling. In this moment, we know it is just the first step in our journey together. We soak up and relish the beauty of this moment together.

As you lie by my side, the silence is split as we open up our voices. Together, our voices weave together, melding into a sweet melody. The songs we sing are met by the harmonies of the crickets, cicadas and grasshoppers; warming our souls and guarding us against chills brought on by the fall night. The symphony is the soundtrack of a love that is requited.

Writing out my thoughts has helped me to gain a new perspective of myself. In sharing these writings, it is my hope to help others to better understand themselves. It is my belief that with each of us who chooses this path of greater understanding of thy self, that it inspires others to do the same. This building momentum is the force that drives me to share, for in my vulnerability, I find my strength. I believe that you can also find yours there. ~~~In reading some of my posts, you will see that growth is not always pretty. It is in breaking apart and coming undone that a seed sprouts and breaks free of its own captivity. It is also out of mud that the lotus blossoms. ~~~Please join me in seeing the beauty of growth within the deconstruction of our limiting beliefs. ~~T.C.
