This poem is about the eternal search for our Divine Beloved...
For me it's also about finding my voice and lighting my inner flame. When I realize that the more I fall into love, I instantly connect with my unique expression... then nothing can discourage me from being myself. If I go into a striving mood I feel lost and blocked in my expression. This poem sprouted during the past months through some realization that the more I cultivate love, the more everything falls into place...

Our Divine Beloved
by Subhadra Bäppler
How much I long to express your enchanting names
to feel the scent of your presence
and the gaze of your soft eyes
watching me from your abode
kissed by the sweetness
of your eternal presence
closer to me than the breath itself
This inner search
to hear your whisper in my heart
like following a trail of rose petals
leading me deeper into the garden of love
The more I discover myself
in the light of your love
and in the sacred moments of life
bathing in an outburst of expression
dancing from the core of my heart
in this sacred walk of life...
