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

a way of living easy


night time path at The Clearing

There’s a way

The direction doesn’t matter

While the heart takes the steps

Pulsing with the beat of the land

on that worn footpath not noticed

 

With all those wild earthy scents

and the way the breeze caresses

bare skin in the pause and glance

to the cloud dance over the Sun.

 

Shadows and light loving on each other

grateful for the need to breathe in the shade

when moments shift on The way like they do

 

When the heart path skips a beat in the knowing

That this is the right way all a long living easy.

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

SUMMER SOLSTICE


Happy Summer Solstice.

POPPIES AT MERTHA'S CABIN

The longest Day of light and the shortest night.

The cycle, the pattern of information that this invites.

The way the days expand with sunlight  and the night

gives way to  this increase of light with little sleep

in the dance with the moon and stars.

 

There is a little lament in the tomorrow, when

the days begin to shortening a little at a time.

And moon and sun seek their equality in this

sky that lays itself over my world over my time.

And for today, this first day of summer

with it’s call to blooms and warm social nights

finds us here in this hemisphere of a long

long day and night that

sleeps for just a little while.
