Dark Embrace

 

Will You
show
me

~

your
deepest
darkest
side

~

where
roots

~

writhe
and
hide

~

where
your
selves

~

collide?

~~~

Will You
let
me

~

touch

~

the
part
of

~

you

~

that
resists

~

its
source

~

and

~

obscures

~

your
view?

~~~

Will You
meet
me

~

in
between
the

~

where
light

Love

in
your
shadow’s

~

embrace.

    • Thank you so much Penny. I was not planning a post for this week… destiny had other plans for me as I biked down the block and stopped to admire this flower. It’s funny how things happen sometimes. Your praise is so much appreciated my dearest friend. Love to you this night ~ and yes -almost 2 am here – why am i wandering the halls in the dark? :) x Robyn

    • :) I actually thought it looked rather mysterious and dramatic on your blog with the black background! YES – very much liked the presentation … Dark Embrace — embracing both the light and the shadow within all of us – I think it’s perfect at your place. Gratitude and Love for your kind spirit – truly, Robyn

  4. Terrific poem Robyn and piccy that goes with it. I always feel like I’m going on a journey when I read your words. Very wise you are indeed. ;-) huggs

    • Truly grateful for your compliment dear Roxi. Thank you. This one was unplanned, but was one of those “meant to be” pieces. I am so glad it resonated. x RL

      June 7, 2013 at 1:46 AM

  5. Beautifully written and very artistic photo. Well done. What a GREAT coffee table book a collection of your writing and photography would make.

    June 6, 2013 at 11:37 PM

    • Noah, I thank you for your kind words… and am most flattered that you can envision such a book. For now this blog has just been a safe place for me to go, but at some point might be a fulfilling project to consolidate my work in the form a coffee table book. So grateful for your encouragement. Love and Blessings, Robyn

  7. oh sugar…as someone who lives predominantly in the shadows this piece speaks so viscerally. beautiful. X

    June 6, 2013 at 11:48 PM

    • So much thanks thesacredroad. Yes, I do understand, though your awareness of those shadows is a blessing in itself….
      I am most touched that this resonated with you. Sending you lots of love and light your way…

  9. Wow. Love the poem and photo.
    So much truth. Dark and light interests me too. And the shadow place…It isn’t as scary as we think.
    It is the denying that is the problem.
    So glad to find your site-
    Much love,
    and your words encouraged me to continue to follow my heart. Thanks for sharing how you started.

  10. Hi Robyn,
    I’ll meet you on the porch by the garden and we’ll talk about it. The pictures are as beautiful as your words. Hugs

    • Thank you so much dearest Paul. Yes – I am sure we would have much to discuss… :) this topic is huge, and I have devoted much time studying. You too I am certain. Hugs and Love to you, Robyn

    • Thank you so much Vicki. Not a protea flower – correct? Do you know what it may be. This is the one I mentioned…but after some research think it is of another variety. In any case – thrilled you enjoyed the post ~ and sending you much love across the seas! x RL

      June 7, 2013 at 12:05 PM

  13. This is a stunning post, Robyn, the photo and the poem compliment each other perfectly. Love it. Thank you for sharing this

    June 7, 2013 at 1:27 AM

    • Oh Alastair, I am honored by your words today. Thank you dear friend. Was a very spontaneous post… one of those days (Wednesday) it took all I had to make my daily loop around the block on my bike, and stopped to photograph this flower… that evening the poem was born. Thank you so much ~ sending love your way x RL

      June 7, 2013 at 12:07 PM

      • I like it when that happens. Well, it has only happened with me a couple of times and that was when I was doing the music as well

        June 7, 2013 at 12:16 PM

  14. Now I need to know… do you write your lines then go out and take a photo to suit.?? or do you take the photo and combine the words to go with it..?? There are a few bloggers I follow that have this ability to put the perfect words with the perfect picture… you are the best at it, but don’t tell the others I said so… I can think of one other that does it often Penny.. don’t know if you follow her… but this ability you have just amazes me… if I took a photo of myself or my shadow and had to put words to it, it would be a comedy… and if I wrote the words then had to think up a photo,, that would turn out a disaster… so I need to know your way of doing things .. you’re marvelous at this… just so damn outstanding… wonderful

    June 7, 2013 at 1:37 AM

    • Dearest bulldog – thank you! ~ I have never written a poem before capturing and meditating on an image. And honestly, I never even have a clue what my words may be relating to when I take a given photo.

      It is always after I have spent time alone with an image, in meditation/prayer that the words seem to surface. It has become a little bit like a spiritual practice in some ways… though sometimes the poems are light and silly (but I suppose at times that is what is needed to soothe me :) )

      You are so generous to bask me in such praise. I still say you are super creative and artistic, and could play this game too if you desired!!! Yes – I adore Penny — and she is here with me always. Like you – she is a a most wonderful soul! Big hugs and Lots of Love and thanks for all your love and support always, Robyn

      June 7, 2013 at 12:15 PM

  15. Oh Robyn, this is so nice, as always. The true love, when all sides of a person seem acceptable and lovable…

    June 7, 2013 at 2:24 AM

    • Thank you so much dearest Chatty Owl. I agree – embracing the whole – the darkness, the light – saying YES to it ALL is what frees us – and allows the essence of life to flow … there is no other way. So much Love ~ light and shadows too :) ~ Robyn

      June 7, 2013 at 12:17 PM

    June 7, 2013 at 5:58 AM

    • Julie thank you so much. I appreciate – and know it’s sometimes hard to embrace it ALL – but believe there is no other way through. Resistance is just ‘ineffective’ ~ I know you understand this more than anyone. So much Love ~ x Robyn

    I’m so in this mood’s groove!
    As usual your words took me right into the image, and what a fabulous image. Sending much love to you – F-G-S – Resa xo

    • Dear Resa, my most beloved F-G-S ~ we are always in sync aren’t we — “this mood’s groove” … Thrilled you enjoyed this.
      …. and still trying desperately to find the right poet blouse… ’tis not an easy assignment! So much Love to you ~ Robyn x

      June 7, 2013 at 12:44 PM

      • Yes, I understand how hard it is to find perfect shirts. I have been looking ,too. Nonetheless I am experimenting on a couple of shirts. One is a soft cotton from Zara Man, the other is a stiffer cotton, actually a tuxedo shirt with a wing collar and pleats. My N loved my first go at it (I used Design Me) I said it wasn’t finished, because I’m experimenting. So now I’m taking pics as I go along. I’ll keep you posted! F-G-S _ Resa xo

  25. This is beautiful Robyn…and reminds me how I have failed miserably at this in my marriage. Lots to think on…
    Jonathan

    June 7, 2013 at 9:30 AM

    • Oh Jonathan — “think on it” – but don’t despair – we all fail, and then are faced with the choice to become more… I think it’s the human condition and why we are never done with the “learning”…. just he fact that you are exploring ,and feeling, tells me you are on the right path. We are all in this together … this what I believe. Much Love and Gratitude to you ~ Robyn

      June 7, 2013 at 2:02 PM

  26. Very nice. And you do such great work with shadows.

  28. I absolutely love this, Robyn. I started out thinking about my favorite line, but that didn’t really work out. ;-) Ultimately, it was every line, and an understanding of such desire. Beautiful, as always, my friend. ~ Love, Bobbie

    June 7, 2013 at 10:17 AM

    • Oh Bobbie – your comments always brighten my day … your ability to strand together words is even magical in your replies. Thank you dearest friend… I am so happy to know you could feel the essence of this piece. Much Love and Appreciation, Robyn

    Wow, Robyn, the poem is incredible; your insight into the depths of heart and soul is one of such truth and wisdom – and the shadow photo is just beautiful. I love this, dear friend. Wonderful. ~ Sending love and prayers, Julie xoxox

    June 7, 2013 at 11:12 AM

    • So grateful for your words of praise dearest Julie. Thank you. This piece just pleaded with me this week after taking the photo spontaneously . I am most honored that you could feel the depth of it.
      So much Love ~ and gentle hugs too

  33. The enigmatic words and mystery are reflected so well in the photo Robyn. Excellent. Love to you xx

    June 7, 2013 at 3:28 PM

    • Oh Ruth – thank you so much for such a wonderful compliment. Yes – much about this work was mysterious to me as I pondered the ‘Dark Embrace’ we are all faced with at some point in our lives. The photo just ignited my thought process – really.. Have you done much studying in the work of Carl Jung…?? Much of his work was about facing, and embracing our ‘shadow selves’ – fascinating to me… So much Love ~ Robyn x

      June 7, 2013 at 5:43 PM

      • Hi Robyn, Yes, I too am interested in ‘the shadow’ – these things are endlessly fascinating. I’m also interested in creativity and this part of us. As I say, endlessly fascinating!! I just sent you an email – take good care sweet friend xx

        June 7, 2013 at 6:07 PM

  34. Great Robyn. I really enjoy your work. Where h ave you been all these years? The butterfly escaping the confines of its crystallos?

    June 7, 2013 at 4:01 PM

    • You are too kind Cyrano. Thank you for your thoughtful comment. I am thrilled to know you appreciated this and have been enjoying your visit here. Love and Light ~ Robyn

  35. Great poem here. Sensual and soulful. Fabulous.

    June 7, 2013 at 5:09 PM

    • Thank you soooo much Mike! I am delighted to know you enjoyed!!
      Appreciation and Love, Robyn

      June 8, 2013 at 12:21 AM

  36. This is lovely – you put into words a conversation i wish to have someday – if i ever find the someone to have it with:)

    June 7, 2013 at 10:47 PM

    • Thank you so much w4jp… yes – I think when the right soul comes a long – embracing all of him/her — in the way I have attempted to depict here — is soooo fundamentally important. Some call it unconditional love… what can be more powerful! Sending good thoughts your way ~ x RL

      June 8, 2013 at 12:26 AM

  37. You had me stumped on this one but the photo works perfectly with your lovely words.

    June 8, 2013 at 2:18 PM

    • Aww than you dear LuAnn!! I appreciate… yes the photo took me to the words – as usual.
      So much Love to you lovely lady!! ~ Robyn x

      June 9, 2013 at 12:26 AM

  38. Powerfully written and photographed here, Robyn. I am hearing the hero archetype here.

    June 8, 2013 at 11:41 PM

    • Thank you so much Jane! Yes – so think that sometimes it takes the “hero” in us to embrace the darkness along with the light…
      a worthwhile mission I believe!! ~ x RL

      June 10, 2013 at 10:37 PM

  39. If we cannot show the dark, do we deserve to share the light?

    June 10, 2013 at 11:50 AM

    • Wise words dear Sheri ~ I agree — to be capable of facing, and embracing all the parts – that is what we all deserve!! Love to you dear friend ~ RL

      June 10, 2013 at 10:38 PM

      June 10, 2013 at 11:20 PM

  41. How do I add to such wonderful and totally true comments on the magnificence of your work. All I can say is that the intimacy and imagery are wonderful and had a powerful effect on this reader.

    June 10, 2013 at 4:35 PM

    • Ste J ~ thank you so very much. Means a lot coming from you – especially after spending some time exploring your work earlier; clearly you are a brilliant critique! :) Sending good thoughts you way this evening ~
      Much Love – Robyn

      June 10, 2013 at 11:24 PM

      • My mum once asked me if i could read anything without having to analyse it…gleefully I answered in the negative. I appreciate all your words and wonder what your preferred footwear is? If that is not to impertinent a question.

        June 11, 2013 at 2:30 PM

    • I too have a “thing” for analysis! Not quite as avid a reader as you however! Now to footwear ??? – yes Set J – I will need to know the root of this question at some point – but will indulge you — at this stage of the game, my feet are happiest bare – and sinking into wet sand along the shore (where the sea meets the shore)! I even have Sweedish sneakers that mimic this sensation. I used to love wearing heels – and platforms (am only 5’1″) — but with my current issues with dislocating hips ~ I must be grounded now! :) I hope that was helpful – and will await your analysis! Oh I once did a post on footwear wait …..

      Enjoy ~ here it is :) :

      June 11, 2013 at 3:27 PM

      • The reading has tailed off somewhat this year but I do have a few more reviews in the pipeline and am going to attempt to keep my position as ‘a bit of reader’ also.

        The root of my question? Pure nosiness and I also have a love of throwing in random questions into conversations just to see what the answers are. Yours was fantastic, the evocative sea motif brought into play (and so early in your bloggership, you flighty thing!). I must acquire me some of these Swedish trainers, men’s ones of course. Bare feet let you almost commune (if that is the right word) with the ground, very natural I like it.

        I love your footwear post, queen of the sea indeed, I always enjoy posts that interlink randomly…more unexpected questions I say!

        June 11, 2013 at 3:39 PM

    • Thank you Set J ~ if you are interested in the Maisi Barefoot Technology shoes – here’s a good video on them ..

      And yes they make mens’ too. It’s quite the workout wearing them, recruits muscles you might not be using,
      and there is controversy but study up (analyze, and decide if they are right for you)… I have like 4 pair – and some sandal types too.
      Ok ~ random questions … will remember that :)

      June 11, 2013 at 7:27 PM

      • Always awesome to brush up on my footwear knowledge, thanks. Questionwise at least I didn’t weight in with the big questions such as what is your fifth favourite colour (and why)? That’s always an epic one.

        June 12, 2013 at 4:47 PM

    • ;)

      June 13, 2013 at 11:03 AM

  42. Amazing photo, the words are so excellent written – they talk about the way it have to be, light up our dark sides – we have all some… :-)

    June 10, 2013 at 6:10 PM

    • Thank you so much dearest Drake!! :) I am most honored you enjoyed this. Yes — we must embrace the shadows (darkness) within us in order to truly know the light. I do believe this kind of open hearted approach works the best ~ Sending you love – Robyn

      June 10, 2013 at 11:26 PM

  43. Always so captivating, Robyn :D Love everything about this post!

        June 13, 2013 at 1:02 PM

  45. Hi Robyn,

    Loved reading the verse and some of the comments.

    If I may ask, what could be my motivation to show myself to you thus? It would be this understanding which would propel the relationship….

    Shakti

    June 13, 2013 at 2:47 AM

    • Oh thank you dear Shakti! I appreciate :) ~

      As to your question … the piece mostly challenges the reader to explore all of the facets of self … even the ones that are uncomfortable or scary. To “shake hands with the shadows” as Carl Jung would say … welcoming the dark side in order to appreciate and recognize the light.

      And yes – when we are brave enough to do this, for ourselves -ONLY THEN can we reveal such to another (perhaps a loved one) — and achieve the ultimate in connectedness in relationship – and love too; a huge exercise in living with open heart, and TRUST. It is much about awareness and self-acceptance first though.

      Thank you for your very insightful question! Of course as with all poetry, the reader is free to interpret the verse in whatever way it may suit him/her – but since you asked- I am happy to share my deeper thoughts on the subject of “Dark Embrace” …
      Love and Blessings ~ Robyn

    Oh Robyn, I cannot tell if beauty flows through your words or your word through beauty.. All I “feel” is the bliss of it.
    And that “space” your poem speaks of has always intrigued my mind and heart. Thank you for giving me something, yet again to ponder.
    Much love xx

    June 13, 2013 at 2:31 PM

    • SF, I am humbled by your beautiful comment today. Yes -I agree there is a sort of blissful freedom in this space. I too am intrigued by such.

  48. Leider ist mein Englisch mangelhaft. Danke für das tiefsinnige Gedicht, das perfekt zum fast mystischen Bild passt. Schade ist, dass die Translation auf Deutsch sehr schlecht ist. Aber dafür kannst Du ja nichts. Ich muss mich bei Dir umsehen, weil die Art, wie Du deine Beiträge machst, mir sehr gefallen. Ich wünsche Dir eine gute Zeit. Liebe Grüsse aus der Schweiz. Ernst

    • Ich danke Ihnen herzlich. Ich war in der Lage, die transator auf Google zu nutzen und wirklich zu schätzen Ihre schönen Kommentar. Ich freue mich, dass Sie das Gedicht und das Foto genossen. Solche wunderbaren Worte haben Sie mir zuteil. Ich hoffe, dies ist kohärent in Deutsch :)

      Beste Grüße und Segen, Robyn

  49. My heart says yes and my mind says no…..It reminds me of the verse’ The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak’….Your words compel me to take the leap and not look back at my crippling fears….it can be a scary thing, to go where you are speaking….but the rewards are so far above and beyond any pain or fear……you are such a blessing….love you……

    • Yes – this is so much about facing the whole self Celeste – and it’s often the mind that stands in our way of doing so. Spiritually, I think we are all programmed to love ourselves, as well as others, without condition or judgement…. and that it serves us on the deepest level to do so (as you say “rewards”) … but yes — a challenge!! :) Awareness is the first step — I am always doing the work, as I am sure you are too my beloved friend. Thank you for sharing in this…
      Warm Hugs and Love , Robyn

    • * blush* ~ very flattered by your lovely words. Just happy to know you enjoyed. These works are very much like “meditations” for me. I never know what I am going to write till the words are already flowing. It’s a pretty cool process. My photos almost always guide me. Thank you again sm! Always, RL

  54. A stunning image and powerful, moving words! It speaks volumes of seeking trust, per my interpretation. :)

    • Yes Fergi ~ so much about trust – to reveal to another (or even to oneself) all the parts of us – even the ones that may not be considered perfect or desirable by some standards. Thank you so much for your insightful comment my friend! With much love, RL
