LEAVING HOME


31 August  2011   >  16/7   >   Tower/Chariot

 

What are you building that is rooted to the goodness of your life?

How much is too much?

What are you ready to do that must be done?

 

 

HOuses hold memories.  They hold lives and things of importance. They give shelter. “HOme is where the heart is” is a  truth that embodies a tenderness to safety and security.  If the heart is open a home flourishes and the walls pulse with warmth and goodness.  The smell of love comes from the kitchen oven served family style.  

When I leave my home tomorrow to fill another home with my life, my stuff, my heart; it will be with the hope that these walls that have housed me for 10 years will hold some special essence that I gave to it.  That I leave behind my love and care held to these rooms I have shared. The is here. I am sad.

 

Home is where heart is

heart sits in a sea of salt

I see the shore line

 

No sadness like loss

left behind to start anew

Sun will kiss again

 

my breath is in here

all walls know of my essence

wild wind coming

 

Endings, beginnings

birth always leads to a death

space is made again

 

Love didn’t leave the home

it took flight out the windows

it’s a heart shaped cloud

HISTORY’S BEDEVILMENT


30  august  2011    >  15/6   >   Devil/Lovers

 

How will you give love to yourself so that you can be a better lover?

What does love look/feel/smell/taste like?

Isn’t it interesting that the word ‘devil’ is lived backwards? What does that mean to you?

 

In that last question… devil/lived, it occurred to me that when we linger in our past, be it years ago or just yesterday,  we have already lived it;  It’s gone.  It is history and can not be undone nor lived the same again.  Should we choose to cling to what is past, that devil, that trickster, will stir confusion and ‘bedevilment’ into our living in the present moment.  So… in my conclusion of this whole devil/lived word thing, is.  Live for each moment or be be-deviled by what you think you shoulda, coulda, oughta, have done.  What can you do right now?

 

 

There is no dismissing history

It brings you here as you are

loaded, a full blown human- being

with a past that has a story

 

You are not just your history

it’s how you live right now

not how you lived what’s gone

redemption is yours for the asking

 

Yesterdays lead the way to today

Substance builders for right now

To linger in the past holds you captive

keeps you away from the service to life

 

To serve life is to be of life

To serve life is to give of life

heart open, fully present

listening…

 

Lived is the devil gone by

his trick is to remind you 

to unchain yourself from the past

Release the evil and live

 

Your life depends on it

What Impossible thing will you do today?

What wisdom do you need to call forth?

How will activate your creativity?

Are you kiddin’ me?

 

 Three more days till I move.  My body is rebelling.  It’s a little cranky.  Can I just say… DAMN?  What?  Why of course I can say what I please.  haahhaa.   There are other choice adjectives that slip out between my lips that I will refrain from sharing here.  Like when I dropped the edge of the chest of drawers on top of my foot.  Yep… and then when a box of books had it’s unpleasant way with my shin.  OH… and… how about the glass that exploded in my face.    Aren’t you glad you asked?

STORM GIRLS


 

28  august  2011   >  13/4/0   >  Death/Emperor/Fool

 

What does the ‘foolish’ you look like and do?

If.. Now is all there is, What does your now look/feel/see/taste like?

What needs organizing in your house?

 

Irene has me held in awe.  A Hurricane that big is beyond impressive.  I send my prayers and visualize that the damage done is not nearly as hideous as was prepared for.  OH>>> and what is the deal with calling all those storms by women names?  

 

STORM GIRLS

 

Annie was a sharpshooter

she shot what need come down

Belle Star was an outlaw

she went from town to town

 

Calamity Jane loved her fighting

kick ass because she could

Durga was invincible

took out the Devil where she stood

 

Elektra ninja warrior

wields her bladed sai

Freyja’s fertile blessings

counts the dead each and every day

 

Grainne was a Pirate Queen

a vast she holds her treasures

Hecate, Queen of Magic

sees witchcrafting as a pleasure

 

Ishtar, courtesan to the Gods

sexed her way through many wars

Jeanne d’ Arc a peasant warrior girl

led by God’s highest words

 

Kali is eternal change

She never fears her darkness

Luna rises in the night

gives shadow to the huntress

 

 

A to L is all I’ll do today

there may be more tomorrow

I can’t promise more stormgirl poems

depends what my brain can borrow

PICKERS, JUNKERS, TREASURE SEEKERS


 

Lots of fun last night with my friend Martha.  Watch it when you get more the two girls together cause it can get mighty loud when they start brainstorming.       How does the name  Pick and POsh, sound for a vintage, ‘shabby chic-ish’ shop in a little town??? I’m liken it.

Sippy the fiend… Big yawn… aaaaht… there, isn’t that nice?

 

There is pleasure in finding treasure

Pickers delight in the sight of a good find

Seekers, quest for the best

 

Some junk is someone else’s funk

I take the funk and make it good junk

Price it right for someone else’s delight

 

It’s in the blood being part of this club

day trippin’ for some good pickin’

feeds the hunt for worthy junk

 

A couple bucks might give you luck

A big offer to fill your coffer

Giddy and high on the junker’s buy

 

It ain’t no lie this this junker high

It’s a  good drug to feed the bug

that itch and need for the feed

 

It’s not the Holy Grail in my pail

a quest none the same is this game

a desire to find what leads to the divine

 

It’s a Junker’s game making claim

on that pot of gold you’ve been told

waits at the end of a rainbow.

What is it that motivates and moves you get up and on with you days?

What are you doing that makes your life fluid?

If not now, When?

CHANGE WINS


 

26 august 2011    >   20/11/2   >  Judgement/strength/ priestess

 

How can you be more accountable?

What is the difference between your intuition and your instincts?

How would you counsel your inner critic?

 

Up ridiculously early..  Stupid early. ssshhhheeeez.  sippy the caf-fiend.  There is beauty in being awake at the sunrise.  The birds hit their first chirp with a crack of light.  Noisy for a few minutes and then quiet.  Autumn is in the air.  The sky is soft coral, shifting with the rising sun.  It’s peaceful.  sippy more of the fiend.

 

*****   ( )     *****     ( )       *****     ( )      *****

 

Change wins

it’s like gravity

it pulls you into it

pulls you down to it

It will happen

 

resistance is futile

 

Change wins

it’s like magic 

it’s everywhere

in everything

it will happen

 

resistance is futile

 

Change wins

you can fight it

you can ignore it

you can flow with it

it will happen

 

resistance is futile

 

Change wins

be the change you wish to see

Change wins

be the change you wish to be

25 august  2011   >  19/10/1   >   Sun/Wheel of fortune/ magician

 How bright are you willing to shine?

Where on the ‘wheel of life’ do you stand?

How can you make magic happen?

 

This is MY day…19*!0*1…I’m just gonna let it shine, stand it the center of myself… ANd put all my magical tools in action.  Yep.. that’s what I’m a gonna do.  How bout chu?

XOXOXOXOXOOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO 

Magic is in the breath

the light, the sound, the taste,

the land of living.

 

Magic is everywhere…

 

it is the kiss of mother’s love

on the booboo of collision

it is a singular snow flake

held in brief to the sun

 

Magic is in everything…

 

It is in a whisper of love

it is fear unleashed

it is breathless beauty

it can taste of skunk and dirt

 

Magic is everywhere…

 

it is in the miracle of your birth

it is your last breath to everlasting

It dances on the tips of grace

smolders in the fire of disillusion

 

Magic is in everything..

 

It is what you imagine it to be

It is what you dream it into being

It will happen without you

It will happen cause it can

 

Magic is…

 

in your breath, your light, 

your sound, your taste

It is in your land of living

Make sacred your magic wand
