THE NARROWS


PACIFIC NORTHWEST 083

Skookumchuck Narrows before the tide came in on a full moon night

PACIFIC NORTHWEST 2 024

SKOOKUMCHUCK NARROWS, BC.   2005  The tide came in.

~

I take the Narrow’s tempestuousness slit

My boat lost to a long ago of well being

The full moon calls the Sea to give rise to the tide

She pulls its out to bring it in

What comes  in greets what is going out

a violent swirl, a vortex of pull and funneled force

A ride like wild mustangs in a fevered run

Holding on as if life means everything

And everything means nothing

but to ride out the tide

~

I take the Narrows on this full moon night

For want to imagine this journey of all journeys

Will gather  me in under the luminous night orb

Drown me to make me wholy and awakened

to rise out of the depths of my ending

Washed clean. left naked, pulling in air

before my lungs explode in defeat

Dreaming of the gills that let me swim

before this time of living knew that limitation.

~

I took the Narrows to an ending

Finding the breath of a new beginning

Waiting for the next unfolding.

ON FIRE


Sippy the coffee… aaaahhh..  The pleasure of the brew.

Good morning.  There’s great stillness outside this a.m.  Not even a dead leaf still clinging to a branch is moving.  A white grey fills the sky in the quietude, makes me want to laze around and read and write.  Only, the call of coiffing and preening ‘my people’ must happen and then off to hear my dear friend Alan, play his lovely music in Hartland.  How appropriate; music from the heart in Hartland at the Kahuna Cafe.  6-8.  Should you be drifting by the Big Kahuna and wish to sink into a comfy atmosphere and some sweet music, stop on by.

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

The fire is not dampened by the tear

Nor the sprinkle from the grey clouds

What is lit inside flames strong

The call to passion goes beyond reason

It pulses with every heart beat

 

There is lightness within every breath

The air that feeds a flame with imaginings

Fills up desires call to take action

Or shimmer for a while longer in the warmth

The comfort of the inner hearth at rest

 

There is time for the fire and flame to rise

To light up as beacon in cold grey gloom

For those that have yet awakened to their flame

And need feel the basking of LIght everlasting

In the soul flickering call to Home

 

What beautiful flames we all are

Lit up from the inside out glowing

There is no getting away from your light

I have seen it and I see you .
