Questions and Questions and Questions in the Divine story of All things.


 

gypsy-jeanne-she-knows.jpg

Do you want to be found?

Is it about being lost?

being lonely

being ‘seen’

being heard

feeling love

dying alone

living alone

being touched?

Where will we find you?

 

Does God, or Goddess, or Spirit

Or The Oneness of All Things

The Source of what embraces

Infinity, not know where you are?

Does any of it matter?

Is this life’s go around It?

 

Bone and ash to dirt,

The Earthly temple of heart

and soul carried off to the Heavens?

Dispersed to the what and where

and the imagined want of

the Great Beyond or to nothingness?

 

Truth is tricky

Perceptions have many

angles, many views

Choose yours well

in the story you have

of what is or isn’t

In the questions that

rise and fall in the now

and ever after in the now

in the right now here

with me, you reading this

 

And I tell you

in my truth

in this my perception

In this my deepest knowing:

You are perfect

You are enough as you are

You are Love and glimmering

Light everlasting.

You are the highest good

of All that is and has ever been.

You are Divinity’s expression

 

You are the Divine Story of All Things.

MOTHER EARTH EVOLVING in the always All Ways


yesterday, I was reminded that I joined/choose here for ‘The ride’.  the Mothership is ready to shift her cloak.  How easy I make it about me in the so not about me in the everlasting.  There is a tremble inside me waiting for ecstasy.  Finding the peace of it.

~~~~~~~

Awaked, thinking of tree and root

the thick and the thin of the system

stretching

stretching the force of life beneath

holding the heat of One in quiet pulse

weaving

weaving together for Mother Earth

this sacred tribe of trees and roots

connecting

connecting in perceived silence

the long ago, on this Earth now

waiting

waiting patient in cherished grace

as a Milky Way makes her way

evolving

evolving in the must be as it does

it is the Way of how it has always been

Awakening

Awakening to the trees and roots

in the thick and the thin of a New Earth

rising

Rising up in the prayer of Oneness

everlasting for it has always been

It is always All Ways.

drink freely from life’s giving


I ‘stole’ this line from from Abbey of the Arts, Christine Valters Paintner.  www.abbeyofthearts.com

The original sentence is this;  “Drink freely from the life you have been given.”  I made it ‘mine’ by changing it a bit.  If you have time, give her website a visit.  There is something very special about Christine.

Drink freely from life’s giving

Fill up on sweetness that is not hiding

Listen to the breeze give her story

Air is every where with her knowing

 

Drink freely from life’s giving

Ease slow into the receiving

Feel vast the heart’s voice

Oneness is not wandering

 

Drink freely from life’s giving

Expand into The Way flowing

Know duality will find it’s Oneness

The Earth joins in the evolving

 

Drink freely from life’s giving

Belief will bring the seeing

Release what holds too hard

Light the way for us searching.

allowances


I think this is the longest I’ve gone with out laying out a post in the last two years.  Not for laziness.

I’m shifting.  Moving my inner workings about.  Re-calibrating.  Pondering next steps.  Anyone else feeling a new pull, a certain whisper on the wind?

For awhile it won’t be every day of diving into a moment with poetry.  I’m going to let the muse have me and wander me about in other places that words need to be written in.  I hope to allow it all to bubble and brew in this heart cauldron of mine.

Allowances

 

Wash the dishes, clean your room

feed the dog, mow the lawn

Allowances were given

 

drop the glass, forget the errand

often late, missed the plane

Allowances were given

 

In the allow of this for the giving of that

In the allow of that for the misplace of this

in doing the right thing to the forgetting

 

Open to the allow it to happen as it will

In the generosity of the space not yet filled

up with doing and mind jumble

 

Where does it matter most on the life way

that allows possibility in the night and day

of what can be seen or hides in the shadows?

 

When allowance feeds the greater good

and gives the free flow a kind radiance

that lights the way for others.

it’s every other days these days..


Setting sun on a Blue Moon rising

Setting sun on a Blue Moon rising

It’s every other day these days

when days blend into each other

in the other way the mind plays

out the way of the dance of age as it

weaves a little faster, a little faster

 

So, it’s every other day these days

in the get to it of the way some rituals

yawn and stretch out in this new say

of how it might go and then again not

of the way the bones creak and the neck

 

Finds it sag and the crow flies along

eyes that have seen decades of coral skies

and gasped at the Milky Way making

night caps in the cup filling and pouring out

in the hush of love and tears of sorrow

 

Of when we did the clever sash-shay

with youth a blush and wink laid out

on moist sheets tossed over the sprawl

of naked lust in hungry repeat of

never enough, in the never ending play

 

There is sweetness to the remember

with the every day occupied by the

sooth of age and the settle of wrinkles

that don’t iron out and the map of veins

surface to display the long winding journey

 

Eyes adjusting to the new light rising

and letting every other day be fine

Wise to the fact that perfect is imperfect

slowing down in the speeding up fits

the pleasure of aging wisdom

BACK TO THE CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE


Resting back in the Center of me.

Settling into my breath

Letting the wholeness fill me up

The Universe is unfolding

PATH TO GALAXY

~~~~~~

History makes her weaving ways into my present.

Suckles on my fears and weakness.

I have rocked this baby before.

I can’t drowned her, or smother her

I can’t shake the pictures out of her head

 

I remove her from her cradle of lies

I raise her to the Sun and Moon

in an ‘All Hail great Universe’

lay her on a bed of mossy green

under the bluest sky there ever is

and chant her stories of beauty and grace

of life that has no death and love that knows

no darkness in the forever after.

 

I let her suckle on the breath of love

In a world of kindness and joy

I sing her to sleep in the dream

scape of infinite possibilities of

great goodness made manifest.

I remind her that there is only Love

in the eternal Oneness of Spirit

 

She is her own spirit

on a human path

finding her moments

remembering what needed remembering


IMG_2059

The path home is so unlike the path through the trees

and ferns, the intense voice of green calling up

all and every bit of lush and bloom. Up and

out for Spring’s few weeks of rising in her

Northern exposure.

 

The last of the trillium bent down to give

her final breath to earth till her next year.

While the poppies make a field of orange

and purple heads up to seek the sun

in it’s path across the northern sky.

 

I made words to stories of childhood amidst

the quiet of this place of Clearing and creating.

Feeling the spaciousness beneath forest wild

with the dappled blue of sky and the floor of

hungry life rising green for the carpet

 

Childhood didn’t know this place.  I held her

hand as we walked the paths, sat together

in an arbor of green, inhaled the wonders

of how those days brought us to these days

We remembered what needed remembering.

A life lived has so much breath to it.


I dedicate this poem to Norb and Jude.

norb and jude

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A life lived has so much breath to it

Millions of gasps of surprise

The pants of  anxiety

The hold on of disbelief

The hunger heave of desire

The whisper of holding silence

Bellows of breath for cheer

Moans of air between sobs

A life lived has so much breathing

with out much notice to how

the inhales and exhales are

moved by our moments crowded

by another moment of joy of

sorrow, of silence, of love, in the

unexpected expanse of engaging life

as it comes and goes like breathing

in and out. Breathing in and out.

Till the last breath struggles out

and lays it wisp on the bare shoulder

of the one you love, a kiss good bye.

A life lived has so much breath to it.

THE GREAT UN-KNOWN


PATH TO GALAXY

Brought here by the Great Unknown

Flipping through infinite space

Like I knew where I was going.

Landing here buried in my mother’s

womb to push out and breathe life again

Inhale and exhale this worldly experience

In the “oh my god” and “Are you kidding me”

Varied exclamations mixed with occasional

Expletives as my days ready to be tossed

Back out into the infinite salad bowl of

Terrestrial ingredients to switch it up

And get tossed into some other soup

Being birth all over again.

I’m waiting

for the seasons to chance

Waiting

for my rock to roll

Waiting

for these days to close

Till I dance with the

Great Unknown

EARTH DAY 2013 … haiku


EARTH DAY…  22cd day of Napowrimo.

 

mother nature

mother nature

Lay your ear to Earth

Hear her call rise within you

Do her bidding grace

 

Ease into changes

Nature has her wily ways

She shifts as she must

 

It’s not about you

In the Infinite of All

Bits of sand make beach

 

Earth is evolving

skip with her sticks and her stones

Inhale her seasons

 

Imagine this day

Perfect as it is all ways

Imagine this truth
