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.

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

Nature Spirits are Seen


Day 5.. NaPoWriMo  New Moon in Aries

A Villanelle.  A french form of poetry that I feel compelled to try.  A first time dive.

The first line I choose to begin this poem is from the Astrological Sabian Symbol for this New Moon.

It spoke to me.  I read it on www.mysticmamma.com.   A worthy site for following the Lunation of the Moon

Nature Spirits are seen in the Light of Sunset

A finger snap out of the shadows dancing

Soften your eyes to the magic to see what you get

~

Quick in our ways of busy we forget

In child like wonder lives this remembrance

Nature Spirits are seen in the Light of Sunset

~

All hail to a heart wide open to be Spirit met

On the horizon in the forest light seen

Soften your eyes to the magic to feel what you get

~

In the meadows and gardens they set

Among the blooms of flower scent

Nature Spirits are seen in the Light of Sunset

`

Oh to be of a child’s mind in no regret

Of  joy and innocence with eyes wide open

Soften Your eyes to the magic to see what You get

~

Surrender, receive with innocent eyes re-set

Take in the Sunrise for recalibrated refresh

Soften your eyes to the magic to see what you get

Nature Spirits are seen in the Light of Sunset

The Willow, The Rapids


PACIFIC NORTHWEST 2 024

 

Morning…

This poem, which I am about to ‘makeup’ in this moment, is from the prompt given on the NaPoWriMo.net page.

I read a beautiful poem there by Claire Wahmanholm, The Meadow, The River, that inspired this moment of flow.

Let me see what’s going to pour out …

~~~  The Willow, The Rapids ~~~~~

My eyes followed the half of her

that went into the river

Her other half fluttered in the wind

Caught in the droop of willow branches

Holding her in a delicate balance

~

I tried to catch one of her eyes

The one in the tree held to silence

Closed and serene

The one in the rapids

Wild like the water consuming her

~

Should I save her from drowning?

In the wildness of herself?

Should I save her from the whip of the winds

In the fresh calm of herself?

I laid myself perfectly at the tip of that pinpoint

~

I felt into the drown of my wild concerns

Breathing into the serenity of the winds caress

Feeling into the desire of both of those halves

in the surrender of perceive wholeness

Making a break from each other

~

There was a losing to find

There was a split of understand

The hologram of wholeness was breathing water

And each breath took in the rapids.

Swimming in the wind has its answers

nude sleeping

You are here in your soft presence.

Even in the angles and edges of you

There is comfort in how your curves find me

I settle in to the soft presence of what you do

Angles and edges are puzzle pieces that fit mine

Curves that silken what my touch sees

We become one of a magical kind

The Hard and EAse of Flow


adams mouth hurrican2

Haiku

Flow is not working

Paradox of opposites

Oxymoron sky

~

And then some

~

There is sense to a flow

that gives to a natural ease

When going with the flow

finds calm in each moment

.

Till the application of Hard comes

And what was finding ease

Finds velocity by disruption

.

or maybe worse

.

Stagnation pools at your feet

wrapped in a morbid stench

of passivity going no-where
