SWIMMIN’ IN THE SEA OF SELF


13 sept 2011   >  17/8   >  Star/balance/adjustment

 

How does taking care of You, help to take care of your family, your community, your work, your faith, humanity, this planet?

How will you take the time to help heal the fear?

How do you adjust to what doesn’t seem adjustable?

 

sippy the coffee… 

 

~~~   ***   ~~~  ***   ~~~  ***   ~~~   ***

 

Liven on the edge

facing the see of me

The tide rolls in

calls me out to sea

 

My depths are vast

how I feel is deep

I stand at the edge

I put in both feet

 

So much of myself 

has so much further to dive

naked and vulnerable

I feel so alive

 

Ready to see 

all the sea of me

a wave comes in

pulls me from reverie

 

Takes me out to the deep

I’m over my head

A moment of fear

fills me with dread

 

A dolphin of love

nudges my back

I grip on a fin

become part of the pack

 

No need to worry

about air in the sea

I can breathe in the depths

face the emotion of me

 

The edge is for living

I can see all of me

There is no dive to deep

I can swim my whole sea

 My cousin, Patrick, has asked me to write some lyrics for him to put to his guitar.  ooooo… I’m excited now.  What do ya’ll think?   I’m thinkin I can do that…RIGHT?  He likes a little Cajun Honky Tonk. mmm?  Well… let me think on that one.

Sippy the coffee time, listening to the squirrels chase each other on the roof.  The acorns fall from Waaaaay high and sounds like little machine gun bullets when then hit.  The squirrels are at heaven’s gate gathering and hoarding.  It’s easy to understand the idea that someone has ‘gone squirrely’ with the way these creatures act as they gather, race and climb all over the place.  I’m not that squirrel girly.

    I think you`re just the girl to write some honky tonk!! Go for it! Todays offering reminded me that I used to get dreams where I was under water, gasping, then all of a sudden I found I could breath under the water. Quite wonderful. Never thought of it in terms of drowning inside myself… but I like it!
