TATTOO

 Can you name three things that the moon symbolizes for you?

How do you wish to be ‘seen’, and is that happening?

Where will you shine just a little more light in your world?

 

 

Seems dreamland is visiting me lately.  I use to dream vividly ever night for years.  Kept a dream journal, was part of a dream group… I was dreaming in technicolor; full of symbolism and great stories.  Hormones shifted that.  So it with great welcome I invite them back.  I miss my night dreams.  I think I should do a ‘woo woo’ dance in celebration.  What is your dream world like?

 

^^^   >>>   ^^^   >>>   ^^^   >>>

 

Should life lead my memory away from me

I buried my stories beneath my skin

laid them in bright ink 

to shine on my surfaces 

 

My story is writing in pictures and flash

symbols of a journey taken

a history spoken to in ink

cameos of life lived vividly

 

To define the why of it is for me only

I can caress your curiosity 

or your want for explanation

with your looks and stares

 

My journey didn’t include you

It didn’t try to exclude you

stories are for the telling

the truth can be tricky

 

Living art is a life of wonder

the why of the pain is ours

the results give pleasure

see beyond the surfaces

 

When my days are numbered

n’ inks fades with my mind

This ‘exotic bird’ I am

will fly the wind to heaven

TO JUDE… IT’S 5:00 SOMEWHERE


“If you believe it you will see it”

 

11  August 2011   >   14/5   >   Alchemy/Hierophant

 

What seems impossible that you can make probable?

What’s your next step?

How will you serve your spiritual life?

 

The heat breaks at last.  Let me just say… YIPEE!.  I am not lover of hot n’ humid.  I slept like a baby last night; windows wide open, the night sounds of cicada and other, other- worldly insects that sing into the deep night.   The smell of summer softens when the heavy heat shifts.  Tho’ I’m not ready for summer to make her exit, I will joyfully welcome the spice of autumn.

 A friend of mine, sent me this in response to a question I asked yesterday.   I share it with you for your own pondering.   And I will ‘steal’ from her, her words for my own making.

 

“…how to live  “the rest of my life” ? — a question you’ll find yourself pondering more often as the years add up and the days get shorter.  Fate. What is that, Hey?  Good thing Happy Hour’s upon us ~it’s 5:00 Somewhere!”      Thanks Jude.

 

^^^  —-  ^^^  ___  ^^^  ___  

 

Ponder the years that add up

Days get shorter with age

 

Fate calls from over there

Behind the veil of tomorrow

 

Time is as much as it ever was

A happy hour is upon us

 

Drink up the moments with joy

Somewhere time is wasted

 

Find yourself in the question

Be the answer you always knew

 

Let the ‘rest of my life’ be well lived

Somewhere it’s 5:00 for the celebration

 

How to live is what we do each moment

“Live well and prosper” * 

 

 

*(Vulcan wisdom)

WONDERS NEVER CEASE


30  july  2011  >  14/5  >   Art/Alchemy/Heirophant

 

 Do you have faith that nothing is impossible?

What magic do you need right now and can you call it to you?

What resources do you need to gather to make your life fluid?

 

OH CANADA….  visiting Rachel n’ Andy in London,ON.  Talking wedding plans and giving ourselves to good food and a coupla cocktails.  Lots of laughing.  

I am reminded of the feeling of having the future bright and full of opportunity.  Decades of possibilities stretched out before you.  There is no end to the wonder of it.

Age, shifts some of that, as there aren’t decades anymore.  I’m simply not going to be a prima ballerina or a rodeo queen.   I KNOW. Right?

And… there is more life gone then there is before me.   Not a bad thing just a fact.  Opportunities are different.  The bright future is in the settling in of where you have brought yourself, and the light of you, into being at this point.  Welcoming change and letting wonder and magic still find its way into all your days.

Oh… how I could go on about this…   I welcome any comments on this.

 

~~~~~     ^^^^     ~~~~~     ^^^^     ~~~~~     ^^^^

                      

Wonders never cease

They shimmer between 

the spaces of invisibility

waiting to be noticed

 

You bump them all the time

they glitter and glimmer

a certain magic whisper

a call into their aura of space

 

That place of wonder that 

wants you to notice

wants you to feel the magic

wants the shine of your light

 

To see into the invisible spaces

feel the shiver that comes from

the marvel of it ALL.

Ceaseless, amazing, a miracle

 

Wonders never cease.

they are waiting for you to notice

waiting for you to feel 

that you have always been a Wonder

“time is this rubbery thing”


"Time is this rubbery thing" David Eagleman
Take the time to Google this guy, he's quite amazing. I let his quote carry me 
to this moment of poetry. I realize that this may be a draft that I want to
do more with. Ya know, that time thing: The illusion of it, the quantum
physic of it, the bounce and the stretch of it, the confines of it, it's
limitlessness, oh.. how a girl could go on with it. I have enough time to.
Oh, BTW.. in this moment, I think time is all purple and soothing.

Time is this rubbery thing
it holds you in it’s seasons
it holds you in it’s calendar
it holds you to life and death
it hits the road running
It stretches and bounces
you out into the Universe
while all along you were 
right here.. reading this.

When you were young
there was plenty of it
You’re older and there
is never enough of it.

Time is this rubbery thing
it holds you right where it
wants you.
it holds you like a baby then 
throws you out with bath 
water
it holds you to the clock
ticking away the time of you

When you think there
isn’t enough of it
there is always more

There is as much time as
there ever was.
There is a much time as
you need

Stretching and bouncing
it’s illusive tick tock to
the rhythm of your heart beat
while you sleep, eat, love,
breathe, do your thing,
live your seasons,  make plans,
read the news, laugh, cry,
hunger, fill the bucket list.

Time is this rubbery thing
Be flexible

TIME … DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH?


I’ll tell ya.  I could take a lot of time rambling about time.  AND..I did.  I took a slice of that ramble and laid it right here for you to ponder.  This early morning rant is going to have me all riled up all dang day.  But then.. I have as much time as I need to let it go.  Oh, look over there. Isn’t that some time passing by?  Maybe I can quick run and catch it.  hhmmmm.

There is as much time as you need.

You have as much time as everyone

Where is the time going?

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Age seems to gather time up

A syncopation that loses rhyme.

on the young

It gathers speed,

it takes the lead

gone before the day is over

There is no time.

There is enough time

Time is an illusion

Time is irrelevant

Time gathers speed

even if it doesn’t

It take the lead

when you’re running

ahead of it

Age gathered you up

in no time at all

In whatever syncopation

your rhyme decides to tell

Time is gone before the

day begins

There is plenty of it

when the day is over

If time is what you need

you have as much time as you

ever did.

As much time as everyone

Take as much time as you

need.
