The American Dream… revamped


day 23… napowrimo.

The American Dream revamped

 

I wonder what’s missing looking around at everything

The American Dream made a big pitch for

“It’s out there Baby and you go get it”

Build those dreams on all that demand

to have and hold the making of greater and lesser

things Out There, where success brands its name

in the searing want to get out there and get it all

 

If you make it they Will buy it

If you make it they will want it

If you dream it into being, it’s the

dream that leaves us out there

far away from who we really are

 

I wonder what’s missing looking around at everything

All those dreams and schemes made manifest

That we all tuck our lives into for every reason

That gives rise to the Sun everyday

Work hard to gain.  Work hard to have

Work hard to make a future

Work hard cause that’s what

we do to get ahead, get there, get stuff

Get along, get stuck, get lonely

Feel a void, in the Out There

Cause It’s the Dream

 

If you join you’re a winner

If you Join you’re in the club

If you dream it, it’s yours

Out there, somewhere far

from who you really wanted

to dream yourself into being

 

What’s missing is not out there in that everything

Nothing ‘out there’ feeds the soul’s desire for

unity, oneness, love, peace, joy, creativity.

It’s just not ‘out there’ in the fraud of that

old over used dream.

 

“It’s in there Baby, right in your heart

so when you’re awaken to it you can

go out there and Be what you dreamed.”

Earth Day and The MilkyWay


Day 21… napowrimo… a day late…LOL

earth white

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Earth wins in her natures

There is no crowding her

No boxing her in one way

or another

 

One day is not just hers

In the declaration of it

All Days are hers in

the facts of it

 

That Hallmark way of

Proclamation wants for

remembrance in a rush

of printed trees

 

And explicative on the

glory of recycled paper

and non-toxic inks

as some of us

 

Dance the tribal dance

of Earth wellness and

chant for the healing rains

and the end

 

To all that tarnishes

And rapes the beauty

And wonder of this Earth

that will always win

 

She makes generous

Our living on her in her seasons

She give us tremble and rage

because it is

 

How her nature needs

For her beginnings and endings

Her thrive in spite of us

Her thrive for

 

The Love of us who take

Forgetting the giving back

For it is in the giving

that all is received

 

For all the planets in perfect

Sync make sure of this

She is of their family

The MilkyWay wins

Resurrection of Spring… the yearning.


day 20… What do you resurrect?

Ireland in Spring

Pagan roots have settled deep

What is fertile awakens to Ishtar’s call

Meadow dances and moonlit coupling

Seeds planted for the summer’s birthing

 

Resurrection of what seems dead and bare

Only to rise again from the sleep of winter

That quiet peace of rest and darkness

Pushing out and up to the chatter of life’s call

 

Celebration heats the Spring winds

Cycles and passages of starlight dreams

Under the moon of seasons changing

Oh how the Sun calls to life’s greening

 

In bones and cells the hail must be herald

Awakening elements within and all around

Stirring up this seasons quaking return

The fever must be fed for this yearning.

Of Puppy Love.. a pantoum.. day 19


day 19… NaPoWriMo

On Puppy Love.. a pantoum

 

In the expression lies the answers

All that sweetness carries the heart homeward

Of puppy love in the fluff and cuddle

How clever nature is to know the work of that tease

 

All that sweetness carries the heart homeward

Fills the pulses up with the flutter of desire and want

How clever nature is to know the work of that tease

The breath of it is the scent of seduction

 

Fills the pulses up with the flutter of desire and want

Swoons the mind into the charms of the beloved

The breath of it is the scent of seduction

The heart so open it has room for even more love

 

Swoons the mind into the charms of the beloved

Who can deny the pleasure of all that sweetness?

The heart so open it has room for even more love

The infancy of love cherishes the romp of the heart

 

Who can deny the pleasure of all that sweetness?

Bring on all that tender and joy

The infancy of love cherishes the romp of the heart

Wrap yourself in the gift of a heart truly open

 

Bring on all that tender and joy

Of puppy love int eh fluff and cuddle

Wrap yourself in the gift of a hear truly open

In the expression lies the answer.

“You can’t travel the Path till you become the Path”


NaPoWriMo… and what a day that is.

“You Can’t travel the Path till you become the Path”

~~~~~~~~

There are many worn paths on this journey

Many forks in the road leading to the next one.

Deterrents are beyond multiple; caught in the wind

snagged by a twig, stumbled by a rock

The hawk cries, the squirrel races, the brook babbles

Each look/see slow the motions where the going is

And if the get there has any chance of getting anywhere

When it all doesn’t matter in the going cause you’re there

The path is yours, you become the path that is

and all this forking and snagging, and stumbling

is for the personal enjoyment that makes it all

a pleasurable morning walk to no-where in particular

Cause you’re already exactly where you’re suppose to be.

And That’s perfect

DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE


DAY 16 of napowrimo.

Alice_in_wonderland01

DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE

There is no maze he would not follow
The mystery holds all the dark hands
In the light of every heart laid on the table
It made no difference which rabbit to follow

The follow can’t be denied in the blood of
who he is in how it courses through his veins.
Alice knew in her leaving, the angles and corners
Of the twisted curl he took without her

Getting what holds him doesn’t make for staying
Even if in him she found that space in his heart
Where their blood converged and the coming
Together mazed them in all those angles and rhymes

A dreamy pattern of magic and wonder leading
Everywhere and anywhere in limited choices
To get to out from what brought them in
He controlled which fork to take in the left and right

He held her hand in the lead heart loving
Always on the labyrinth trail sure
She would lose herself if she let him go
When letting go was her through and out

It was a long weave alone without him
Without her the maze went down the dark rabbit hole
And the Queen of hearts made her deal
In the dark and the light of whatever the end

Alice found that the in was her out peering
Where the rabbit taunted the mazer down
And awakening from the dream was
How she found herself back to finding herself

He is big and small hoping to get through
the door that gives him the final way out
