Today I was inspired to respond to a posting on the <firstname.lastname@example.org> listserv. It seems there are many Rumi devotees there and others who seek the mystical union with the divine, a divine that is beyond this planet and burns through you to the mystical fire of emptiness (so described in this poem).
It saddens me that there is not so much poetry or mystical writing about the bliss of feeling at one with nature and connected with the Divine Earth Mother… for this is what I feel so called to do.. so I responded below Tom’s poem… below…

in the ember’s glow
It burns away my life until I cease to be,
and I am gone
into the vastness of the mystery,
and I am lost
in It’s eternity,
no recollection of what they thought was me,
all they will see
are empty pages where I used to be.
Thank you for such beautiful wisdom…
I yearn to burn into that fire, yet wish for it, instead, to be a melding into an ancient tree with roots so deep that they source the old old wisdom of this very amazing planet… That is the bliss that I seek, to feel the joy of photosynthesis charging through my blood and know that the very leaves of such prehistoric plants as ferns etc are one with me and my blood… My bones, my heart. This is what I seek… And catch rare glimpses of it when I’m sitting on the ground and my hands are in the dirt and I look up and the trees are glowing around me. Singing their song to my soul and I sing back. Ah….
Love to you all
