IMPOSSIBLE MAGNIFICENCE


30 April 2019

~

LIFE FORCE

This last Poem for the month of NaPoWriMo (30 poems in 30 days, of which I completed) is inspired by a Jill Badonsky prompt.  

“ What impossible magnificence do you wish to grow up to be?”

~

Magnificences is the healing calm of my breath

With the sure swift shift of fear to peace with my smile

I grow into that knowing, more like a remembrance

Of an ancient time when breath and smiles were the sooth

The gentle balm that floats and flows over us all in joy

A sweet exhale and the glisten of those pearly whites give ease

Give a shivering giggle that is caught on the wind

And is carried on the breath of everyone.

CIRCLES AND LINES


29 april 2019

circle and lines

Circles and Lines

~

Unity lives in the Circle

A sense of connection

A field of nurturance

Guided by the moment

Living in the what’s real

Held to the rule of flow

~

A mandala of prayer

Hand to hand to hand

Heart to heart to heart

Linked together in common

With uncommon ways

finding the Way

~

A line stretches out

May move and weave

In it’s lateral expression

It has a plan, an action

An intent to conclusion

Bound in stated process

~

Straight goes this Way

Inclusion set to strict modality

A paradigm steeped in rightness

Too long holding the reign

This line needs a new paradigm

Inclusion calls for flow

~

And so we go, circles and lInes

Lines and circles in need

Of each other in the paradox

Of how one holds the other

In the differences and sameness

The line runs cold without Circle

~

Time, timelessness, yearns

for flow in the Circle glow

Rising together to heal the line

drawn between us for so long

United are we when we circle up

Sovereign each, connected to flow

The Day Got Away From Me


Playing in the napowrimo prompt that is a Phrase.  Day 10.

~

There goes the Day.

The day got away from me

Not Like I had some kinda hold on it

Or the twenty four hours of it

were unattended to

~

It got filled up with a multiple  

of things to do and say, 

to be lived in the schedule of 

To be lived in the dis-order of 

~

The day got away from me

And in the NaPoWriMoing

(A new verb that needed making)

Morning poem-ing is now at 9:30 pm

~

Not 8am in the bright morning

All fresh and ready to lay some

Words down cause that’s 

The Inspired time

~

The day got away from me

and inspiration has dropped low

pushing out this poem

with eyes ready to close

 ~

No surprises in the ramble

Here with you reading

And thank you very much

The day just got away from me

THRESHOLD, answering the Big question


PATH TO GALAXY

 

Each step is a new threshold

An invitation, an opportunity

A celebration, a mystic moment

Each step,

Foot in front of foot

Thought followed by another

A sound that welcomes

    the next sound

A feeling that moves to the

    next feeling.

~

There is a space of in-between

sensorial moments

Where you receive

    information.

Where you receive the

Great questions

Where Alchemy mixes

   the improbably with

   the impossible

~

Not audible, not tactile

Not seen, unnoticed

Right there waiting

A nano second

A revelation,

An  awakening

    of absolute knowing

~

Beyond all your alert senses

Beyond your greatest understanding

Beyond what you have been told

Beyond what you thought true.

~

The heart races wildly

The skin tingles and shivers

Vision moves within to the unseen

Energy smells like lightening

Swells to engage the Infinite

And you cross

~

You have stepped over

    the threshold wide Awake

Wisdom of All times fills you

and You know …

Light and Darkness

Love and Fear

     share each other

Need each other to

thrive

One can not be

      without the other.

~

Every moment

Every moment

Every moment

You stand at a threshold

How will You hold the Paradox?

WHAT BREAKS YOUR HEART OPEN?


 

IMG_3715

 

This poem has been inspired by Andrew Harvey.  I speak this out loud as I simmer in the brew of what comes up for me with this question.

May we all take love in action on behalf of what breaks our heart open.

 

~

What breaks your heart open

Is where love calls you to action

begs you to follow.

~

What breaks your heart open

when every betrayal in this

Earth bound continuum

storms your door

~

What breaks your heart open

that makes every choice

in your world the One choice

~

What breaks your heart open

and dives you into the cavern

of your soul’s darkest night

~

What breaks your heart open

when nothing else could

possibly matter

~

What breaks your heart open

in the still of a starry night

when the war of humanity

needs your voice, Now.

~

What breaks your heart open

that threatens All that you have

come to believe is the righteous truth.

~

What breaks your heart open

that if you do not take action

on behalf of That wide-open

of knowing you might die empty

~

What breaks your heart open

SO vast, So tender, So unspeakably

urgent that to Not take action

on behalf of that heart opening

the world as you know it will end.

~

What breaks your heart open

and you push that pain away

for another day, another day

another day

~

What breaks your heart open

and the flood of that ache

nearly drowns you, and you

must breathe underwater

and dive deeper still

~

What breaks your heart open

and the voice of that which

widens you beyond anything

that ever mattered before , calls

you to speak up, take action.

Be the voice of Love Out loud.

~

What breaks your heart open?

IN THE STILLNESS SHE IS MOST LOUD


 

In the stillness she is most loud

Singing and dancing in the quietude

Pleased with how it is her best kept secret

Where she keeps all of her whimsy and need

All of her rage and discontent

All of her wisdom and magic

It’s where she gives voice to herself

~

She doesn’t bother with those that

Out-loud above everyone else

Those that drown her out

in their righteous verbosity,

wall-flowering her against invisible walls

and into shadow corners

Those big selves all puffed up,

swilling words of lazy drivel

as if they are the elixir

of life.

~

In the stillness the best of her resides

in the vast landscape built on dreams and

and possibilities of how imagining everything

can have a place in her everywhere

in the ease of her inner eye

and her vocal heart

always feeling in on the look out

~

In the stillness she is most loud

avoiding the surrounding ease of chaos

in the overwhelm and consume of the

bantering and battling with

Ego fervor and fuck you’s

that breed more hallowed emptiness

in the presence of so much abundance.

~

She doesn’t bother with the noise anymore

Settled into the oasis of her inner

knowing, calm in the waiting

for her time when stillness and peace

Unity and love, a good earth and water

is what the starving masses hunger for

and the revolution of the heart in it’s

deep wisdom is the loud voice calling

The Separation of Things… saving the world.


CROSSES TWIRLLED

 

Separation pulls apart our togetherness

Divides the tender Oneness of us

Makes cruel havoc of who is in the right

to wipe out who must be wrong

In that myopic celebration

All dressed in the fineness rightness

Strutting the lies of perception

~

Separation cheats us of unity

~

How closed the mind becomes in

A one belief held tightly wrapped

In clear assured pronouncements

Hearing others without Listening.

Speaking the expletive of limited thinking

Chests puffed up with words full of spike and bitter

Making Wrong someone else’s right.

~

Separation has no place for forgiveness

~

And worse still is the Heart that forgot to feel

The heart that holds the quiet voice of tender

The quiet voice of love unconditional

The ever present willingness to forgive

To hear the call to compassion and togetherness

How we all beat together in the blood, bones and

Sinew of our likeness and our differences?

~

Separation is the ego’s dive into self-righteousness

~

Can we meet in the in-between of light and shadow

Recognize our self in the Other, to truly feel and see

How all of us are here, breathing, living,

Struggling, laughing, dying, mourning,

Being right, Being wrong, Being…

Celebrating the adjectives of life as we live it.

~

Separation is a destroyer of worlds

~

Can you dare to be wrong?

Can you give up your rightness to save the world?

 

~
