It wasn’t the choices that were difficult.
It was the despair, deciding was too painful.
The open wound hidden from the mirror.
So returns the truth, a great blessing.
The truth hides from us some, for it isn’t new.
Truth already is, so we then decide once we see the truth again.

Journal Entry – Fate, Heather Mirassou

Fate is two hearts guided in the same direction in this very large world, who meet after acceptance of a “friend request”. Something I don’t normally do from those I don’t know. However, I believe people are put on each others paths for a reason.

It is two people chatting for hours and hours on messenger and the phone getting to know each other deeply before our first date.

It is two like-minded poets finding rhythm in poetry and love letters where a love story is being written.

It is the evolution of hope, faith, trust, acceptance and the foundation of unconditional love in our relationship.

It is a miracle we found each other. For Lani is like no other human being I’ve ever met and is all that I have ever sought and more than I could ever imagine.

Heart to heart and soul to soul we are at the center of love.

I believe this is an enormous gift from God and am so very grateful for Lani in my life.

So, the love story will continue to be written by us both and we are blessed today.

Your happiness is desirable

Privacy and a bed at last

We can’t be trusted

Ain’t monogamy grand

We love with youthfulness

We love with vigor

We respect lovingly

We love wisely

We love with insight

Passion with purpose

I want to be known by you absolutely

 

 

The First Night – Contributed by Lani

I watch you undress

I stir inside

You glance at me

You can hear my heart cry

My heart soars

My mind goes away

I pull you close

All of my senses focus on you

All life is passionate

You accept me

For the first time

There is no separation

We meet and have become the center

A Love Letter From Lani

Her eyes are as the green gems I seek in the desert yellowed by the sun.
Her smile wide and majestic as the horizon from the mountain top I love so.
I have seen the insight she bares.
To love in full intensity past the risk of hurt .
So now I know my place, never to hurt her, show her harm or turn from her unconditional Love .

Declarative – Lani and Heather Mirassou

Our stuff is here and there

We haven’t a creature that comes to us both

We do have love and share meaningfulness of Life

My mind searching the heavens for gifts to bring you

My heart does not want to stand alone

I am here, you are no longer alone

The pain is gone

I feel alive with you

We are both special and rare

Like a falling star and a crescent moon

It is not often a couple becomes as close as we

For our love grows as we find ourselves and each other in this love

Together we live in harmony

Like a river and a waterfall flowing together meeting to make love

We are one in nature

Combined to find the edges of love

 

 

A Love Letter From Lani

I am a jewel that polishes itself for the only love found

I find good things

I found you

We are so close

Let us go into each other

And raise ourselves holding ourselves together

We will both heal

We have both hurt

We can both step past it

Into a future with great love

From Lani

 

Darling Heather, I want to write you love poetry
So I do
When I reach inside my self and wonder how I can love
There in the quiet moments the answer comes
Love her more she can handle it
Love her more she is worth it
Love her better and I have become better for the love shown her

Contributed by Lani

She calls for a poem
What is a greater gift given than
One on which is asked for
We ask for so little from our soul
The minds and bodies wanting’s
And needing’s mostly answered
The soul just the one thing asking
I rush to give her Love

 

Time – Heather Mirassou

We are like a pendulum that is counting the minutes until me meet again.

We are like sunbursts finding the sundial that tells us when we meet again.

Time is a thief to us.

Though our love is timeless.

The moment becomes our future.

We gather in tandem to be close again, ever widening our hearts in the center of love.

Contributed by Lani

She tells me in whispers
the secrets I want to know
She shows by example
the way I want to care about others
She rests peacefully in ways
I wish to be still
She breaths in the air of life
as do I , with great passion
She has become timeless
and never far

A Love Letter From Lani

Don’t stop saying

Let me close

Three words that do so much for us

My hands are open

My heart is waking

I love you timeless

All now

All future

I don’t go to God often

For you everything

I have to accept time moving along

I want time to stop

While we kiss

And breath the same air

I cherish the moment

Each hour in your arms

Brings new life to me

From the first hour

I’m pulling into love

I want you with me

You are magnificent

 

A Love Letter – Lani and Heather Mirassou

Tears are near

I want to cry on your chest

My skin would take your tears inside

I would keep them

Take them now

I have never known such love

I never knew it could exist

I give you a place to cry

But more

Because on me, your tears would just be going home

You see I love them from within

A Love Letter – From Lani

We must dance

Oh you know I love to dance

I press against you

Oh yes

To excite you

To make me strong

I hold you tight

Every muscle flexes

Gravity decreases

Your heart glows

I bend your hips

I hold you from both sides

We are in ecstasy

You have guided my hands

I have lifted you

We are in the same love

We don’t let go

I love you deeply

I want to feel all your weight

As proof you are real

Do this for me

Yes my love

I will remember

I will too

 

A Love Story – Lani and Heather Mirassou

We are glowing together

A smile that lasts day and night

Whether separate or apart

The heart crack is wide open

We are at the center

Exploring the edges of love

I am here

You are near

Love is grand with you

My grace

Your strength

Will carry us today and tomorrow

Love unfolding naturally

Acceptance draws us near

Unconditional love fulfills us

A love story is being written

Our future together is clear

Dedicated To My Lover Lani – Heather Mirassou

My heart and soul ache for you

My lips, swollen search for you

My eyes find yours and dive deep into the ocean of blue

Your neck, a wonderland, we are tangled

Your chest, beating like a drum, my dance floor

Your stomach, white and flat, my resting ground

Your legs, pillars of strength, they hold me like bricks

Your curvy toes, tickle me in my dreams

Your love, like to no other in this world, you set me free

A Love Letter – Lani

Please hold me

I ache to hold you

Press ourselves together

We will hear music

Just holding each other

Your breath is music to me

I want to hide away with you

Soon

I’ll listen to your heartbeats

I have been saving this special first for us

I wanted to love you more before I listened

The heart I love beating

I will listen with my ears and hands

You will be breathing deep

And we will be in love

I could do this today

I love you so

You will love me

I flutter some

I flutter too

We are the same

You kiss me gentle

I kiss you deeply

Dedicated To My Lover – Heather Mirassou

Let me lay my head on your shoulder

Lay me on a bed of roses

Kiss me

I’ll be wearing white

Sing me a love song

For I love you so

I don’t want anybody else but you

Love me and make me feel alive

Hold me close and tight

My heart falls wide open

Come to me and enter

Bring your magic touch

As I whisper your name

I will hold your soul

As we share dawn

I will not give up

I will be patient

I will endure

Give your all to me

Contributed by Chadd Henderson

It is not enough

To love you from a distance

It is not enough

To live doing little things

Human life is to reach

Inside ourselves

Inside someone else

And be received

These simple acts

We start with our hands

Contributed by Chadd Henderson

In the forest we see many things
As we step along we hear many things
Our Aura enlarges
We see more, we hear more 

We feel more
The cracking twig stabs us with fear
Yet we do not run
We have become above the animals
Fear, it flees from us as we Live

Lani’s Love – Lani and Heather Mirassou

Her breasts translucent

Her nipples erect

Her hips wide and curvy

They smell of life

Her lips searching

He stiffens

His mustache debonair

She chases him as they sit together

His lips voluptuous

They know where to go

His eyes mesmerizing

Showing strength

Palm to palm

Waiting for her to feel

Her heart wide open

She opens to release

What he is asking for

They pour together

She catches him

She sings a love song of poetry

To the man she wants

He watches over her while she sleeps

She hums

And prepares the morning gift

Another day in love

She wraps her legs around his

Not wanting him to leave

He stays together for her

Their purpose

Together

Twin rainbows

 

Contributed by Chadd Henderson and Heather Mirassou

 

I return to Old Wisdom
It seems fresh
I return to my footsteps
They are still there
Praise God I am not alone
This world would be too hard
The waters pour life into us
We need only to be together
Take me on your journey
Tell me stories of your past
I will listen with an open heart
I will see your reflection
Give to me your wisdom
You are not alone
My footsteps are near
Whisper then closely
What will bring you to tears
We need only to be together

Her petals are pink with white tips

She is in full bloom

I crawl to her

She hypnotizes me

She is a precious pearl

She is dripping with fragrance and fresh cream

Just let me stay near

She opens a new flower

As I quiver

Her pheromones entice

She envelopes my presence

She is part of me

As I am of her

I will return

Each new day and night

And revel in her beauty

Let Me Close – Heather Mirassou

Let me close you said

From your eyes, I saw a crack in your heart open

I came to you and let you close

You held my hands

Caressed my face and laid it against mine

Let me close you said

I felt a crack in my heart open

Let me close you said

You put your hand against my heart

As did I

Our hearts beating opening the crack’s further

Your lips so soft and voluptuous

I followed them

Let me close I said

Until we meet again

I am speared

Darshan – Chadd Henderson

Darshan, a Sanskrit word meaning to give from within.

Let us grasp hands

Let us see into each other’s eyes

Let me gaze upon your forehead

See in me what you can

Let us persist until my heart cracks open

Or until one of us is reduced to tears

I Am Speared – Heather Mirassou

 

i am speared
Do not let me go
Take me
To new heights
I will follow you
To and fro
Show me
Hidden valleys
And meadows
Waterfalls
And shower
Me with mists
And rainbows
Tell me
Why you
Are speared
I have no fear
For I am yours
Take me
Now
For I am
Speared

Contributed by Lani

Wake now Noel, to a man baring a gift like none ever received,

Ready yourself Marie, it will take time to receive.

As your name Mirassou carries thee for the life of Lani’s gifts, need time to be given Heather.

Colors – Heather Mirassou

Colors surround her, each color tells a story.

His colors different, yet complimentary.

They softly meet and collide.

She awaits aroused.

Waiting for his hands, his smile and mustache a mystery.

Both shy but made of poetry.

Patience my princess,

I will come to you sweetheart.

Dedicated to my friend Chadd – Heather Mirassou

She bared to him her coveted soul.

Prepared to be shunned, instead she is accepted unconditionally.

Her scars deep, he leads her to the light.

A new journey begins.

He incites her passion, through his wisdom and poetry.

He helps her see beauty again.

She must live again.

 

 

I Love You Like – Heather Mirassou

I love you like, a rainbow that stretches across the sky and has a pot of gold waiting at the end of it.

I love you like, the midnight sky in Lake Tahoe and the stars you can almost touch in the summer sky.

I love you like, a set of wind chimes dancing, singing, twirling and awakening in the whispering wind.

I love you like, a rock skipping across a river out-running a rainbow trout and a fisherman’s line.

I love you like, a wild and crazy motorcycle ride, hanging on to love for life.

I love you madly, deeply, wildly, freely and unconditionally.

Dream Catcher – Heather Mirassou

So alone in a cage

She rolls and rolls

Into a safety net

Into a cloak

 

Her dream catcher

Begins to unravel

Her sheath

Her cacoon

 

It is not sudden

It has taken

A lifetime

Her net undone

 

The butterfly

Confused

Flutters

Lost from home

 

She no longer

Fights or spins

On a string

She opens her wings

 

She free falls

Blind and courageous

Caught by a warrior

Finally free

 

 

 

 

I Am Blue – Heather Mirassou

cropped-dscn0113.jpg

 

I am blue today

Like the cobalt sky

I reach for

The crisp air

So I can fly

I ride Clouds

That look like cotton balls

They litter the sky

I am untouchable

Just as she is

The insanity is dead
All red about the sky

pexels-photo-414276.jpegThe insanity is dead

All red about the sky

So cold against the wind

This day shall flee

It is thirsty

It is wandering

Blurring at the end

Be Alive In Everything – Heather Mirassou

Be alive in everything. Now go paint the rain.

pexels-photo-210012.jpeg

I had awakened and was alive

But when fear, adversity, uncertainty, and sin left me stranded

I raised my protective shield and ran with the wind

My soul stirred, whispered, cried for release

I wanted tranquility, happiness, and contentment

I hit my knees unashamed

Prayed for strength, guidance, and humility

No longer to let life pass me by

I took a leap of faith

Acceptance and forgiveness paved my path

Unwavering love and perseverance carried me

God’s Beautiful Artistry

With blind and deaf awareness

Be Alive in Everything

Revel in life

Find the detail

Be precise

Touch Everything

Explore

Be Inquisitive

Touch it

Taste it

Smell it

Feel it

Record it with Clarity

Be Alive in Everything

Now Go Paint the Rain
