 Can you name three things that the moon symbolizes for you?

How do you wish to be ‘seen’, and is that happening?

Where will you shine just a little more light in your world?

 

 

Seems dreamland is visiting me lately.  I use to dream vividly ever night for years.  Kept a dream journal, was part of a dream group… I was dreaming in technicolor; full of symbolism and great stories.  Hormones shifted that.  So it with great welcome I invite them back.  I miss my night dreams.  I think I should do a ‘woo woo’ dance in celebration.  What is your dream world like?

Should life lead my memory away from me

I buried my stories beneath my skin

laid them in bright ink 

to shine on my surfaces 

 

My story is writing in pictures and flash

symbols of a journey taken

a history spoken to in ink

cameos of life lived vividly

 

To define the why of it is for me only

I can caress your curiosity 

or your want for explanation

with your looks and stares

 

My journey didn’t include you

It didn’t try to exclude you

stories are for the telling

the truth can be tricky

 

Living art is a life of wonder

the why of the pain is ours

the results give pleasure

see beyond the surfaces

 

When my days are numbered

n’ inks fades with my mind

This ‘exotic bird’ I am

will fly the wind to heaven

    I come from a family whose memories and minds do leave… so much Alzheimer’s in the genes. I love to think of my mom and how she might have looked, her story in color on her skin.
