WHAT WONDER IS THAT?


27 April 2019

ALICE

~

Wonder has magic in it 

That mystery of not yet knowing

In the wide eyed, bright eyed

Mischief that lives in the question

~

Of Wonder why, wonder how

Wonder when, wonder what

In the living day lights is That

Glitch in the fabric of the Universe

~

That shimmering, quivering

Anomaly of patterns you thought

Could not possibly shape shift

Into a new paradigm

~

The check list of what is, isn’t

What isn’t, is, and then nothing

You feel into the ‘all fucked-up-ness’

And wonder, what will happen next

~

Or is the deceive of your eyes, 

The betrayal of your mind

The crack in your wanting heart

Leading you down Alice’s hole

~

There will be dinner with The Rabbit

And that Queen with no Heart

Will march you more deeply into

The fantasy cause she wondered

You into Being

~

DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE


DAY 16 of napowrimo.

DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE

There is no maze he would not follow
The mystery holds all the dark hands
In the light of every heart laid on the table
It made no difference which rabbit to follow

The follow can’t be denied in the blood of
who he is in how it courses through his veins.
Alice knew in her leaving, the angles and corners
Of the twisted curl he took without her

Getting what holds him doesn’t make for staying
Even if in him she found that space in his heart
Where their blood converged and the coming
Together mazed them in all those angles and rhymes

A dreamy pattern of magic and wonder leading
Everywhere and anywhere in limited choices
To get to out from what brought them in
He controlled which fork to take in the left and right

He held her hand in the lead heart loving
Always on the labyrinth trail sure
She would lose herself if she let him go
When letting go was her through and out

It was a long weave alone without him
Without her the maze went down the dark rabbit hole
And the Queen of hearts made her deal
In the dark and the light of whatever the end

Alice found that the in was her out peering
Where the rabbit taunted the mazer down
And awakening from the dream was
How she found herself back to finding herself

He is big and small hoping to get through
the door that gives him the final way out

DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE WITH MARK


My friend Mark made a wonderful road trip, hike, and spiritual journey recently and took a gagillion pictures.  Maybe three gagillion pictures.   Really, awesome.  So, I being the kinda gal I am, I stole a few of those pics,  (yes, I did) and decided with kinda sorta permission from him to write some poetry in relationship to them.  

Remember, I make this stuff up in the moment and it might not do justice to the wonder and depth of his magical journey.  And… they invoked feelings and stories for me.  Like when you see a piece of art and tho’ you have no idea the intention of the artist, you are pulled in to some intimacy and story about it that moves you in some way or another.

The land that Mark traveled has that ancient alien landscape, or so it seems to me living in the lushness of the Midwest, that provokes a shiver of long ago, lifetimes ago, otherworldly living that whispers memories of another place  and land I lived on with others.

Aches park… down the desert rabbit hole

 

Alice channeled this vision quest

Sent me to this desert rabbit hole

Chasing the wind and Sun

On this terra cotta landscape

of hard memories buried deep

 

Chiseled in Earth stone caverns

Eroded deep by rivers rapid hunger

Glacial art for some wondering ologist

And me at this portal heart racing

No St Peter at this gateway

 

Entrance is guaranteed when ready

In the sea beyond stone and sky

This invitation to step through

Shivers the Kundalini heat

From molten lava to Heaven

 

Wonderland has it’s token

To lay down the body temple

At the other side in the beyond the Dream

For the new reality to a Love fest

In the everlasting quest for Being.

 

YOu chased the Wind and Sun 

To this far enough place of heaven on earth

You only have to follow the rabbit

into the terra cotta portal of dreams 

Alice is waiting on the other side
