KINDNESS… a pantoum


There is no ponder to an act of kindness

Kindness comes as it will like breathing

It is the only pathway to peace and love

A lay down of all that holds us to fear and resistance

 

Kindness comes as it will like breathing

There is never a time it doesn’t caress the heart

A lay down of all that holds us to fear and resistance

Choices lead to consequences

 

There is never a time it doesn’t caress the heart

Fear stains the heart’s beat with certain death

Choices lead to consequences

Sequences, like bad habits need adjusting

 

Fear stains the heart’s beat with certain death

In your defenselessness your safety lies

Sequences, like bad habits need adjusting

How will you adjust to Kindness’s call?

 

In your defenselessness your safety lies

It is the only pathway to peace and love

How will you adjust to Kindness’s call?

There is no ponder to an act of kindness

This a summer of…


Wholy Grail.

Wholy Grail.

This is a summer of gathering

letting go, remembering,

moving, finding a new groove

 

This is summer of fear found

fear release, surrendering.

making space for new possibilities

 

This is a summer of edges

pushed, hanging on for dear life.

standing in the Center.

 

This is a summer of startled resistance

Deepening into the forever after of

when Oneness calls to the let it all go

 

This is a summer when angst

outgrew herself for peaceful resolution

On fresh pages freed for a new story

 

This is a summer when what needed 

to get together got to together in the 

seamless love given by others.

 

This is a summer of gratitudes fruition

When to give is to receive and to

receive fills the giving cup

 

This is a summer when the heart prism 

finds the clarity in the crystal

Catching all light in her opening

 

This is a summer still happening

in the calm of moments accepted 

In the trust of how the Infinite unfolds

 

Perfectly.

Love, A Full Moon, and Alchemy


A Full Moon and a Happy Love Fest day to you.  Really, let’s make everyday a Love Fest day.

The number for this day is ’14’ and for the numerology purists, it’s a ‘5’ day.  I’m holding to the ’14’ with the influence of that ‘5’ because as a Tarot Card enthusiast, I like to be able to include all the Major Arcana cards when they give their call to be heard.

’14’, in the Major Arcana of the Rider Waite deck  is called Temperance while some other decks call this card ‘Art’, ‘Alchemy’.  Whatever you choose, what I feel and know of this card, among the many stories that live in it, is that it is an invitation into the magic of mixing the unlikely with the impossible and making something amazing.  Finding out that what you didn’t think would work works or that what you thought might work doesn’t and you try again.  There is beauty and information in the creation of mistakes.  There is beauty and magic in the information of experimentation.

On this Full Moon, Valentines day, I invite you to open your heart and feel the flow of Love enter your day/week/life  to the possibility that what you thought/believe was impossible, really is an opportunity to mix it up and find the wonder and creative beauty in the unlikely.  Love may be right there waiting for you to notice.

Mix the unlikely in the pot of love

Let the impossible find the heart’s center

Give temper to the knelling in the heat of it

Passion calls and will you listen to the deep

 

Let the impossible find the heart’s center

There is not a time that love is not waiting for you

Passion calls and will you listen to the Deep

Fire and water will find their match

 

There is not a time that love is not waiting for you

All corners of the Universe seek Love’s light

Fire and water will find their match

Burn and flow with the improbable

 

All corners of the Universe seek Love’s light

Give temper to the knelling in the heat of it

Burn and flow with the improbable

Mix the unlikely in the pot of love.

It’s Not Permanent Like This


Photo 13

It’s not permanent like this.

It doesn’t matter what it looks like.

Or how it gets viewed or felt, or smelt.

 

Certainly not the perceptions invoked

In the passing reality of it’s visual.

That you made up for convenience’s sake

 

Or for the lack of a better clever myth.

In the urgency to make peace with IT

To say it’s so this way or that way.

 

In the passing of what it is or isn’t.

As it speeds away faster than the fable

all made up for the query of it.

 

That needs to stabilize the moment

Of ego’s hungry need to make sense

Of everything, Every, every Thing

 

It’s not permanent like this

None of it is in the hopeful

hold-on-to-it in the “Once upon a time”

 

What ever that fairy tale invokes

That you just made up about IT

and will make up again and again

 

Cause that’s the way humans go

In the relentless need to know

absorb in the endless flow

 

Making it up fast or slow

It’s not permanent like this

I wanted you to know that

making truth up as you go along


Do you find yourself in this ramble?

desert trees

Truth has many faces.

In the, is anything of truth?

Relative in the vortex of 

imagination’s prism landscape

Of how the spiral of her vision

Makes way into the flounce of

Magic held to the story she weaves.

 

Choosing to believe in that seduction

In the why not, it’s as good as any

Rainbow of truth to that pot of gold

That yearning calls out to in the vacuum

Of limited thinking in the short focus

She is such a good story teller after all 

Till the next good one comes along.

 

There’s always another one waiting

On the grassy side line or where life

Is a beach under the blue and sunny

And hunger’s want didn’t quite get fed

In the captured hope of maybe next time

The story gets swallowed hook, line, n’

Sinker and the fill up feels so good.

 

And it’s a home run setting up the 

Household, like two peas in a pod

Enveloped in all that Spring green

Waiting for Summer blossoming

Under the starry starry night cuddle up

sipping on a Milky Way of Universal goodness

It’s as good a Story as any making it up

As you go along cause you can.
