Wishing Well

It was a long slow drink from the well of wishfull-ness

Where people flipped their words of want and longing

Like pennies to a fountain for dreams to come true

Down into the deep darkness where water waits to receive


There is old loam in the rising wood bucket mixed with swill

Of a diary of many lost yesterdays spoken out loud

Echoing, bouncing on the stone and moss holding the memories

Tumbling in love, in yearning, in hopefulness as if some magic


Comes up to be taken in from the very mouths that poured

Sentences down the old cavity that once replenished thirst

Now we hang over the edge, watch the bucket rise with

It’s murky offering needing to be brought up to the light


To be heard, to be seen, to let the wind catch whispers

We dip our hands in to capture the word-soaked waters

Bring the smell of the wet earth mixed with stories

To our open hearts as we sip them in feeling the wishes


Tumbled desires flowing down into us as we as vessels

Receiving it all to hold it in the living chalice of our beings

Taking it all in sacred communion of mythic proportions

Remembering it all, knowing it all, wishing it all well

Day 7,





The whisper is louder

moving from dreamtime

moving from the way

twilight sleeps starts

the call in the waking


Filling cells and senses

Live streaming through

veins and capillaries

Pumping the heart in a

yet unknown intention


Of blood red morphing

into colour and light

Full spectrum momentum

ready to pull the arrow head

to its intended mark


It takes paying attention

in this quiet space between

the worlds of remembrance

and the whisk away of



Laying the images and story

on to the blank slate of consciousness

Letting this whisper state of being

graduate to that wider awareness

of waking up to that ‘Ah Ha’


Whatever guidance whispers

within twilight sleep’s call

into your dreaming ears

fills your breath with wisdom

calls your heart to ache with

the want of a new understanding


It is yours to remember

Day 13 NaPoWriMo..  Prompt… Things you might find in a fortune cookie


You are going to get really luck soon

You’ll have great success as a dancer

There is someone important you will meet today

Avoid the cracks of life

A white car holds the love of your life

Who said you couldn’t do What?

Listen more attentively today

A surprise awaits you at the laundry mat

Pay attention to unlikely answers

The right question will get you everything you ever wanted

Live as if this is the last day of your life

Play IT for the song

The Universe rushes to meet your intention

A message from mother is waiting for you

You already know everything you ever needed to know

To get love is to give love

You are perfect as you are

It’s time to let THAT go

Play 11, 22, 14, 65, 19

You are the reason

There is something you have forgotten that needs remembering

Nothing happens unless you make it so

Get off your sorry ass and get busy

You’re holding on to something that needs letting go of.

Quit taking it all so seriously

That thing?  Remember?  It is NOT about you

If you think it’s right it is. If you think it’s wrong you’re right

If not NOW, When?

That person… Remember?  They didn’t mean it

Never ever diet

It’s time for a road trip

Yes, you are the person you were meant to be

Stop it… NOW
