FRIEND BY FRIEND
Who is my mother, Who my father,
When I am being created
friend by friend?
I don't remember who I was without you.
We have been tending sacred fires for a long time
We are wanderers, drawn by the light of those fires.
Surrounded by darkness,
Emerging out of darkness,
We enter into the sacred ceremony
of each other's life.
We sing, we dance,
Humbled by the power
Of each other's presence
We become prayers for each other.
We sing praises to each other.
And breath by breath, thought by thought,
touch by touch,
Music rises between us.
What I was, I am no longer.
Shaking with hope, yielding to your hands
I stand trembling before you.
Joseph is a mystical master magician. His potent pearls of wisdom reflect from countless angles the miracle, the rawness, and the agony of being alive. His magic effortlessly reaches the deepest places of yearning, and stimulates laughter, tears and breathtaking awe in radical recognition of the nature of Self. In this way his work, his collected poems, are an invaluable companion, sacred and powerful, in the process of coming to know Who and What we really are.
Joseph’s poetry speaks to the heart of the Enlightenment Intensive process and continues to inspire me and many others. I'm glad his work is being made more widely available.
Joseph Rubano's poems emanate from the source of Truth. They point to the ineffable with grace and beauty. Brenda McMorrow
Joseph Rubano is not just a poet, but a mystic, a seer, and a beloved to the muse. He dances in words and seduces the reader to rest in the spaces between each stanza. This body of work is a gift to the world. KamalaDevi
