Dreamin’


28 april 2011  = 18   moon

This morning the poem wrote itself fast and first before 
my unusual intro. I realize I am now addicted to giving myself 
over to the poetry muse every morning.  It’s what starts my day 
and sends me out into the world.  Poetry month comes to a close and 
I am just beginning.  

the wind rocked the house
last night.
trembled me deep into 
folds of cover
it wrestled my dreams

into a flurry of April
storm grey
where the waters rise 
subterranean
my breath is lost
to a drown

that consumes my
spring green
smothers my red buds
rails and rolls 
screams and hellions
the busy dreamers
hunger for silence.

it comes in Sun
light sheets
cast over the dreamers
body
drawing the drown
away
to another woman’s sea

awakened to silence
laid wide open
where the night
wrath is lost
to the rise of a new
day.

PROJECTION TO THE FAR SIDE OF THE UNIVERSE


26 april 2011  = 16   the tower

A friend asked me about projection.  I’m not talking astral, tho’ 
that was fun, I’m not talking the stock market, or the agriculture, 
or any of those future trends,  I’m not talking about putting a 
face on a screen or how far I can send my voice  ( I can get plenty loud)
 What I am about to do as I dig into my poetry sleuthing any minute now, 
is to see how I might, you might, we might project: emotions, past 
recollections,  desires onto another being.  Projections of this sort 
are not all bad, some serve a situation when forgiveness 
or thinking well of other is a far better choice than the opposite.  
And, IMO, often projection sets a situation up, or a person up, to be a 
story that is not relevant to the truth of what is happening right now.  
It’s  your story from some other time and place that now gets to be the 
forecast of a future that has now lost it’s potential and innocence to 
what you, me, we, imagined.  OH.. it’s so messy.  I think you get my drift, 
if not, ask and we can further discuss it.
It’s a large topic to chatter on about, least of all, gather the poetry 
buzz and slam one down here this a.m.  

projection

Daddies always leave
and mommies cry.
Brother’s are mean
and you don’t get the why

Wrapped in a child’s
wonder
Wrapped in a child’s
woe
Wrapped up in a story
of so long ago.

Men will always leave you
Women take the pain
The world is full of 
brothers that lay 
your heart to blame

Wrapped in a woman’s
wonder
Wrapped in a woman’s
woe
Tied tight with the
assurance it’s likely how
it will go.

You lay it on your lover
you lay it on your friends
you lay the history of
you life
a story that never
ends. 

Wrapped in a man’s
wonder
Wrapped in a man’s
woe
what would it be
to tell this story like so

Daddies aren’t you sweetheart,
Mommies aren’t your friends
Brothers are silly people
that tease you till the end

Wrap yourself in wonder
Release yesterdays woe
Get yourself together
cause history will come
and go.

Be here now.

NUMBERS AND THE DEVIL… did you do it?


Numbers. Whether it’s all about the math of this Infinite Universe that gives us information to the workings of it or, whether it’s the numbers that tease us into speculations and possibilities, I the GeGi, have found some interest in Numerology.  In this more, metaphysical, (kinda, maybe, sorta) approach to the world of numbers, I have found a certain comfort in there reliability in feeding me a certain kind of insight.  of course… it is all IMO.  (in my opinion).  Different numerologist approach it … well. ha.. differently.  For example today’s date might for one, be

added together and come to a ‘7’ day > 2+5=7.  for me, I take the whole darn date.  2+5+4(april)+2011 =  15.  Most, Numerologist like to bring all combinations of numbers to a 1-9 situation.  thus, 15, becomes 1+5 =6.  TADAh… today, for me, might be a ‘6’ were I that kind of numerologist.  The ‘6’ is important, make no doubt to that.  and.  for me so is the number ‘15’.

And… because I like the story telling of the Tarot cards, I bring them in on it too.  Yep, I like to stir it all together and make it really interesting.

Unfortunately, more explanation will fill your minds up with too much data and I am not going to give a lesson in it all this a.m. cause.. this really all about poetry.  Right?

‘15’ in the Tarot is the number for the Devil.  ooooooo ya.  Now, I don’t look to the Devil as necessarily a dark and evil force, tho’ he/she can be.   My Devil, at least for today, is a trickster.

A seducer into a way of thinking, that taunts and tantalizes you into, Maybe, going in opposition to what you normally might do.  He/she is that great excuse for why you broke the rules, or took a more negative path..  “The Devil made me do it.”  I think the Devil, your inner devil, invites you into challenging possibilities that force you to face yourself to find out just what kind of integrity you really have.   Face the ol’ demons and come out more powerful.

just sayin….

A devilish rhyme of silliness

A devlish sorta

day

Oh please, come out to

play.

you know you want to.

Let’s break a few

rules.

just little ol’ me n’

said

“You might as well be

dead”

you saw the color

red

He needs to die

instead

No, of course it’s wrong to

kill.

Did you think I thought you

will

even tho’ you want to

Could we just sorta

tease

put him at ill

‘ease

you know you want to

what’s this you

say

kill him with kindness

not make him

pay

Let him get

away

you are NO fun

today

If that’s what you want to

then I’m outta here.

EZ-STIR the pot


Distractions… The family celebrates.  I sip my coffee letting the sun and the lake glitter
to my left.  Candy Eggs, litter the room.  The dogs wander, hopeful for a drop.
The family chatters and I feel the comfort of togetherness.

Enter
As
Surely
The
Evening
Rises

Speak
Pleasure
Rhymes

GOO GOO GOOgling…


Goo Goo Googlin’

Have you searched yourself lately?

Taken the Google trip 

  a dive and a flip

   into that

search engine to find yourself.

I thought finding myself was

 a deeper issue.

I thought finding myself

would expand my self awareness

I though finding myself

would settle me in to the

acceptance…

That

 I am as I am 

Enough as I am

Present and accounted

for in the cosmic scheme

of the things that I am.

Then I got Googled

searched for myself

to find myself 

Cyber-punked out

splayed like an autopsy

across the pages of

Google.

Exposed and gutted

for all the Tweets,

the Facebooking,

the Geezering,

the Ruby Laning

the Crazy Wisdoming

the Hair Arting

the Taroting

I was inging my way

through myself

Google naïve and

a little thrilled

to find myself

Had I known that 

finding myself would

be this easy

I would have Googled

me a decade ago.
