IF I COULD BE ‘SHE WHO’


This poem is inspired by a prompt from my creativity coach teacher, Jill Badonsky.  It doesn’t feel finished as many of my poems here aren’t and it is my dreamer’s vision held lightly in these words.

We were asked to write about who we would like to be if we could imagine ourselves to be anyone .  I believe her a mythical character, a traveler through space and timelessness, who find herself here on Earth.

If you could be anyone, who would you be????

 

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

 

I came to walk this land in intention

There is redemption in my wake

I am Loves call. I am the face of kindness

Intent to fill the spaces, the places in peaceful resolution

Show the solutions to your fearful heart

 

Kindness is my sceptre held before me

I dream it’s goodness in a dervish dance

What is chance but the blessing of possibilities

Laid on the altar of your life’s wholeness

Joy is your boldness, Love is all you need

 

War can not survive my breath

Violence quakes to stillness in my passing

Corruption dissolves to goodness

Humanity trembles away the hateful heart

 

Differences are met without fear

Fear lets light caress her darkness

Darkness comes to know her light

The fright of yesterday finds joy in the new dawn

 

I am she who reminds you of your wonder

that what is under your fear is love

Reminds you of your goodness

Reminds you that you are they and they are you

and you are all together forever

 

I walk the land as loving kindness

I am your finest self 

I am your grand reflection

I am the you you dreamt into being

I am holding your hand

What needs you to let it go?

How is your ‘castle’ holding up these days?

Can you do it sacred?

LIMERICKS… yes… really


I decided to play with some Limerick

After all, word play is my schtick

You might be entertained

With this little game

have fun and see if they click

 

 

 

There was this lady from Lones

She had a way of throwing out her bones

With gestures of metaphor thought

She wrapped them in possibilities a lot

This Lady grew hazy in that zone

 

 

There once was this guy from Maples

He had charms, was willing and able

To cast out a golden thread

woe a wily woman to bed

This guy was a spy from Staples

 

There was this woman quite clever

it was said she was quite the be-deviler

She brewed in her cauldron

A potion of bones, smiles, and citron

And fed it to all the good fellers

 

She gave a limerick a shot

After all they’re funny as snot

If snot were funny

she’d jump like a bunny

and run in front of cars a lot

What can you do to get a new perspective on things?

Are you in charge of your life?

What is it that brews in you that needs you to take action on?

MOON n’ SUN rap


28  june  2011  > 20/11/2 >  judgement/adjustment/priestess

 

 What do you need to assess that you have been putting off?

Can you be OK without it being perfect?

Is it possible that you need counsel for your next step?

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

 

Dang… am I glad yesterday was a day for me, cause it sure went better than the last few.  

Tomorrow is a New Moon, a dark moon.  So step out in the clear night and see alllll those glorious stars in their night sky cloak.  Inhale that big beauty and imagine  what you might wish to renew in your life.  Maybe you have an idea that needs a seed planted out there in the world: Plant it, nurture it along, feed it.  It just might grow into something wonderful for you.

 

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

 

I inhaled the dark Moon

I was a ballon takin’ up some room

zoomed me out to the sea

so I could see you from up here

 

All busy and full of unrest

it’s not a test to be the best

of you down there all busy

in a tizzy to hurry up and get there

 

And where is there any way

is there any play in your day

cause my stare of you down there

all scared from up here in the air 

 

Darlin’ Sweetie breathe in the Sun

fill up on some fun ease the gloom

Shine on my Moon lets swoon

on our way out to the night and day

 

See it clear from here

no fear to rise and shine sincere

when you breathe and leave

behind the tizzy and busy

 

We’re a match me n’ you

Us two in the groove on the move

Sun fun, Moon swoon

Who knew.  I’m all Full now.

WHEN ELEMENTS HAVE THEIR WAY


27  june  2011  >  19/10/1  >  Sun/wheel of fortune/Magician 

 

What magic in your life can you conjure up that will make life just right?

Do you need to get off of that wheel that just keeps you spinin’ in circles?

Can you just take a few moments today and let the Sun shine on your face?

 

 

The numbers have brought me to ‘my day’. Well how about that.  Like it hasn’t already been all about me.

Geeezer.  So… when you add up your birthday…   like you see above:  you keep reducing it till you get to a single number, thus, today is a ‘1’ day.     Get it?  So… if your birthday were say…. 

                  24 August  1955.. you’d do this..  2+4+8+1+9+5+5  = 34 = 3+4 = 7  Charioteer

 And what does all if it mean and does it matter?  Your birthday is considered you ‘life card’, your souls quest in this life.  Believing it does not matter, just let the questions stir ya up a bit and seep into this days thoughts and feeling….  or not.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

 

When the Elements have their way

 

 I grabbed a bit air on my way out the door

the floor said take me too 

What would I do with a little flooring?

 

I said OK.  I walk on her everyday

and by the way the faucet said 

your water is dripping fix it

 

I’m not even out the door with my air

dare I mention a little chip of flooring

and the water is being very needy

 

All the lights go out and I can’t see a thing

I wing it, take a big breath, sink into the flooring

pull out my flash light and check under the sink

 

Water is everywhere, she’s like that

Floor lays there liking all the moisture

And the lights refuse to shine onto anything

 

Air fills up all the little spaces everywhere

He shares his sentiment of distain for the Lights

Floor seems to handle the lay of the land just fine

 

Water is happy to just have her feelings

I’m reeling from all this elemental chaos

I gather air in my lungs and let him fill me up

 

The lights go on and I can see it all very clearly

I feel nearly ready to leave the house and face the world

another big inhale, a little chip of floor, a bottle of water

and… a rising Sun.  

 

Life is good.

til’ dust


26  june 2011  > 18/9  >  Moon/Hermit

 

What calls you to feel deeply and give of yourself?

What way does the Sun, the light of you, show the Moon, the mood of you?

Is it a time for you to pull the pieces of a project, a relationship, together and see what it is?

 

 

I’m feeling the roll of dedication to those who insight/in-sight my writer’s muse.  Tho’ I may not claim your 

name here, you know who you are.  And I thank you for calling my words out of my heart on to these pages.

 

 

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

 

Once Lover sweet sister now

kind one, heart on tender bough

caught to the winds of life unfolding

leaves showing there greenest greener

 

No matter what the scene be

 

tough the journey to self’s glory

held to witness all those stories

between the Sun and Earth

your worth shines in Moon lit shadows

 

Nothing is ever fallow

 

your guitar it sings so sweetly

when you give to the song completely

be yourself no matter what

be sure to Cut away the miscellaneous

 

It can be so ridiculously heinous 

 

love found us a gift forever

lucky us in the sweet of never

ever lose our hearts connection

our protection is sealed til dust

 

with love…

SOUL QUEST….WHAT SLY SAYS…


25 june 2011  >  8/17  >  Justice/adjustment/ Star

 

How do you act as a conduit for your spirituality and bringing it fully into your life?

How do you bring fairness into what seems an unfair situation?

Can you be vulnerable to yourself?

 

 

I would share with you what rolled on to my bedside journal at 4:55 this morning if it made sense.  I’m pretty sure you don’t want me to challenge your brain cells with my angst.

 

I will give you the just a few lines.. Ready?

 

Empty crept up

Nobody home opened the door

filling up with that and more

 

Of this n’ that of books and words

of little things that needed friends

Displayed together without end.

 

 

SEE… what’s up with that?  Angst about having a LOT of crap to deal with coupled with heart palpitations. Was it unpleasant gas?   I told you it was likely ‘TMI’.   Al-righty then… moving right along.  Sippy the coffee.

SOUL QUEST

 

22 feb 1946  > 17/8 >   The Star/Adjustment/Justice…..see above questions

 

It’s your lucky day and 

you know who you are.

How far does that get ya?

 

A conduit between heaven n’ earth

held to vulnerabilities call

the raw of it alters the senses

 

Abundant gifts lay at your altar

Living in the balance, 

On the lance point of nothing for everything

 

The great Illusion is matter’s dissolve

If first the re-solve caress the tender

renders the ab-soul-lute longing

 

When nothing matters it all matters

It’s a matter of perspective

respective choice has it’s consequences

 

The temple is a conduit

a vehicle that graces the earth

with the worth of the heavens

 

 

                      Sly said 

 

Everybody is a star

Who can rain, chase the dust away

Everybody wants to shine

Ooh, come out on a cloudy day

‘Til the sun that loves you proud

When the system tries to bring you down

Every hand to shine tonight

You don’t need darkness to do what you think is right

 

Ba pa-pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba, 

ba-pa ba-pa ba ba, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

 

Everybody is a star

I can feel it when you shine on me

I love you for who you are

Not the one you feel you need to be

Ever catch a falling star

Ain’t no stopping ’til it’s in the ground

Everybody is a star

One big circle going round and round
