Two Passionate, Love Filled, Hope Filled Poems from Ramon Loyola

I met Ramon Loyola on Word Press when I was searching the world over to add new content to the writers work lab etc.
I saw his extraordinary poetry and read his blog and how excited he was (as I would be), seeing his books in a book store. I could relate. I really loved what I saw. I asked him if I could print two of his most hopeful positive poems/prose on either Totally Inspired Mind or The Writer’s Work Lab-and he loved my idea.
When I find something wonderful, something special, that has that has a unique quality to it, I can share it with the world. And so I did.

If And When by Ramon Loyola
******
When you love,
Let the touch feel your warmth
So that it burns like a flame
In the bosom’s deepest cauldron,
Lingering.
******
If you love,
Memorize the face that stares,
Its lines drawing all meaning
To all the desires revealed,
Undeniable.
******
When you love,
Let the eyes see your heart
So that it remembers like child
In the mind’s most profound innocence,
Loving.

******
If you love,
Cherish the oneness that keeps,
Its grace denying all weakness
To the soul’s unknown yearnings,
Fleeting.
******
When you love (finally),
Let the kiss seal your fate
So that it binds like a chain
In life’s undying memory,
Eternal.

Don’t Let It Go by Ramon Loyola

When you feel the warmth of the sun
On your goose-bumped arm
Like the feeling of a frenetic hand
The fingers nimble on your tingling skin
Where the sensation of gladness
Overwhelms you like that grand vista
Of a fresh meadow
Green and lush and
Misty and wide
Don’t let it go.
*****
The feeling is real
It can only get better,
Don’t let it go.

Run up to the sharpest corner
At the end of the street
And grab the sun
Resting in the expanse of your palm
Don’t’ let it go

******
It is as real as the veins
In your clenched hand
When you find the child again
Lurking deep in side
But rearing its head
Peeking through the small hole
On the forbidding fence
Between sorrow and bliss
When you seek for
The small joys
As you plan in the rain
Don’t let it go

The moment is clear
As vivid as the sky above
Don’t let it go

******
It will slip by if you do
Glide along past you like a stranger
Who cares more for dire untruths
Don’t let it go
******
It will leave you insignificant if you do
Undone in a crowded room
When you fall
Madly, truly and ever deeply
Where the hurt is inevitable
Where the heart is soured by
The insincere laughter
The dishonest words
Despite the piercing pain
The opposite of love
And heartfelt tenderness
Don’t let it go
******
The eyes hold it in
The only truth in that look
Don’t let it go
******
The memory will fade
The regret will set in
Making you forget the face
The eyes the skin the cheeks
Don’t let it go
******
It will fade forever
Gone to the light
The water is deep
The air is thin
Hold your breath
Wave your arms above your head
Let your hair get wet
Freeze your toes in the frosty morning
Let the sun scorch your flesh
Laugh like nothing else matters
Shout to the top of your lungs
Weep silently and weep some more

image

When you have tasted all
The nectars of pleasure
When pain has racked your bones
Has broken your heart into smithereens
And has made you steel for peace
And serenity has tempered your soul
And has stumped the chaos that confused you
That rumbled in the earth
Keep it close
Don’t let it go
******
The firm paths are showing you
Like the sun guides the flowers to bloom
Don’t let it go
The answer is leading you
Clasping you tight like a lover in heat
Seeing your light at last
And when you find yourself finally
Don’t let it go
******
It is fleeting but it will stay
As surely as the promise of mornings

If you have epilepsy like I do, and even though your medicine works most of time, but you’re not feeling that great because you overdid it -like I did today….
Say this prayer.

If you have cancer or some other life-threatening disease….say this prayer. You will find strength and hope.

If you have osteoarthritis or other crippling ailment…say this prayer.

If you have Alzheimer’s disease or any other didability- physical or hidden- say this very short inspiring prayer I found on the app ABIDE.

You will feel better and I hopr you find strength, as I did.

Disabled dog runs for the first time thanks to 3D-printed legs | The Verge

http://www.theverge.com/2014/12/18/7414591/disabled-dog-runs-for-the-first-time-thanks-to-3d-printed-legs

Look what one lady’s dream of seeing this dog who was born without two front paws-run did. She had a dream of seeing him run and brought that vision to a caring team of  prosthetic designers working very advanced 3D computer software and caring about seeing one sweet dog run again.

See what can happen when one person acts as a catalyst for change? Miracles happen.

This story brought tears to my eyes because I love animals and it was so wonderful to see this sweet dog happy.
