Wherever















Wherever
God lays Her glance
life starts clapping. The myriad
creatures grab their instruments and join
the song. Whenever love makes itself
known against another body,
the jewel in the eye
starts to
dance.

Leks said...

"When the soul is plunged in the fire of divine love, like iron, it first
loses its blackness, and then growing to white heat it becomes like
unto the fire itself. And lastly, it grows liquid, and, losing its nature, is
transmuted into an utterly different quality of being. And as the difference
between iron that is cold and iron that is hot, so is the difference between
soul and soul, between the tepid soul and the soul made incandescent by
divine love."

Richard of St. Victor - de Quattuor Gradibus Violentae Charitatis

Love you, :O)

Beautiful, Renee! And that photo is all about youth, and love, and passion. SIGH. :) Much love to you on this glorious summer day in Maryland. A hummingbird just came to my window. I'll send him over to see you. xoxoxo Pam

I love that poem.

Ces said...

I can't see the image. I can only read. I like it when people define "God" according to their personal interpretation. God has been a man, a woman, a tree, sex, snake, thunder, cyclone, a friend, a birthday cake...aren't humans great? We are defiant until we are faced with fear for our lives and survival, even those we love, and then even the athiest among us professes and exclaims "Oh dear Gawd, please Hep me, Hep me Lowrd, Hep me!"

Lola said...

The man in the photo is definitely grabbing her instrument.

Gee, I wish I had some...

Ciao, cheeky Renee! I love you
Lola xx

Good morning, dear Renee.

The Hafiz poem is so beautiful. Just as real love is beautiful, whether you are old or young, gorgeous or homely, young or old. To become one in love with another person completely, body, mind, and soul, is like catching a glimpse of the Divine.

I hope you have a good day, dear one. And I hope Sheldon and Jacquie are finding peace and comfort and ease from their pain.

Love,
xoxoxo
Angela

Oh Renee - I love you. Your daring, your verve, your quirkiness, your tongue in cheek show such a zest for life.

BTW, when we think of your current situation, this post seems like a real affirmation of the life force that cannot be quelled.

I was experimenting with my Nanny-Cam and you caught me!
I look good though, right? :)

Have a wonderful day Renee! Is it hot there too? It was still 87 degrees here last night at 8:30!
Love, Darla♥

Angela Recada said...

"Angela I was reading what you wrote me and thinking 'How happy I am that are friends and how happy I am that we connected.'"

Me, too, dear friend.
XOXOXOXO

Ces said...

Well, now that I can see the image I can understand fully why God's name is being invoked here for these couple will soon be meeting their god with the expression: "Oh god!...Oh god...Oh god...I'm coming!"

Halleluyah!
Halleluyah!
Halley hey hey luuu YAH!

Marion said...

I love Hafiz, have a book of just his hot stuff. And that's a perfect photo to go with it...

But here's a question I've always had (especially now that I can no longer do them): How come it's ALWAYS the woman who had to perform all those figure 8, upside down ballerina-type positions during sex? WHY IS THAT? You never seem to see the man all feet in the air and twisted in strange positions....LMAO! Cheeky, indeed! I love you, Renee! Hugs and Blessings!!

Deborah said...

Jaliya said...

Yow! Oh my! Yummm! Lawd, it's hot in here!

I once had a lover who told me, "I wish you were a cello."

Me: ??

Lover: "So I could have you between my legs for hours at a time."

Me: < brain explosion >

Hafiz ... oh yes:

And love
Says,

"I will, I will take care of you,"

To everything that is
Near.

Juicy sexual thoughts = Excellent medicine!

Bless you, Renee ...

Love and prayers streaming your way ...

Pattee said...

I saw this picture and started chuckling ...
Only Renee would think of putting this racy picture on her blog... and I wanted to cheer!

God means so many things to so many different people...
What Cee said had me laughing...

I turn to nature so much to find God....

I love the poem~
Love~Pattee

Fantastic Quote !! Great..Unseen Rajasthan

Snowbrush said...

This woman or the one yesterday. Which is the real Renee? Inquiring minds want to know.

Ginaagain said...

Oh my... suddenly I don't feel quite as old as I did when I woke up...

Allegra Smith said...

Love you girl, and your sense of timing. About the photo being only "youth" ah... but the passion of the years, the look that speaks of other times, the Cosmo's Moon, remember? Dead? Gone? never! Just waiting for the right touch, the right look, more valuable now than when we were young, not because we are not so prone to jump at the first kiss but because like a good tree, now we can rest in the shadow of years of learning what is valuable about love and sex and enjoy it like a good wine. Sip by sip, the glass is never empty...

The Gypsy said...

Great fun, Renee! Seems to match/contrast the theme of my story - have a read if you like and let me know http://gypsyexpress.com/?p=598

@eloh said...

That looks uncomfortable and would make me need to pee.

our friend marion asks good questions.

xoxoxo!

Manon Doyle said...

Yes.... this is pretty hot! ; )
love and passion.... it's beautiful at any age... not just for the young!

lakeviewer said...

'cheeky' is a good word Ribbon used. I love the poem, the idea of joining in the act of creation, the act of loving, touching, enjoying pleasure and giving pleasure.



Renee, you are brilliant.

Silke said...

Well, Renee, you surprise me all the time. I was just thinking: "I'll look at Renee's blog and then I think I'll join my husband in bed." Now I KNOW I'm going to join my husband in bed...;-) You are so...amazing! I love that poem and I love that love is so beautiful! Off I go... Love, Silke
