First full day of writer’s retreat.  Words bubble and spill and some will find there way here.

There’s no forgetting

Why sky blooms on forest floor

Earth and sky are One

LIPS WITH BUTTERFLY

My eyes wide open in the dark

I saw nothing

My eyes closed in the dark

I saw everything

head in the clouds

I lay in the deep grass with my head in the clouds.

Filling on the smell of green, swimming in a sea of blue

The way from here gathers first in the roots

Drinking deep of dirt and moist

In the push through earth in the up and out

With the Sun a blaze in his Siren’s call

Willing the green, and branch to reach

past the surface to the wild world relentless

Fed on the light and rain, with clouds that

look like the face of the Creator smiling

That smile that only the Creator has

As I lay here body deep in green

blue sky high figuring how grounded

I really am and when I can give myself

completely to the Light that brought me here

in the first place and catch the next

magic carpet cloud ride straight to Heaven

DIVE


2013-06-06 21.10.46-3

Make way into the loss

of what has been and gone

of what was and now isn’t.

Chapter’s written next

to the seams of life hemmed

to the short and long of

a story given

When In is the only way out

In the dive deep in this

sea of emotions that could

pull a drown down on a

single inhale.

Of stories told of a life

well lived and sometimes not

It’s the ‘not’ that captures

the interest of the observer.

For the griever, none of that

makes a difference.

The whole is the sum of

all those damn parts and

what was or what wasn’t

takes no account to the

chapter’s written of a life

lived and the love of that

life when loss takes it

all away.
