The American Dream… revamped


day 23… napowrimo.

The American Dream revamped

 

I wonder what’s missing looking around at everything

The American Dream made a big pitch for

“It’s out there Baby and you go get it”

Build those dreams on all that demand

to have and hold the making of greater and lesser

things Out There, where success brands its name

in the searing want to get out there and get it all

 

If you make it they Will buy it

If you make it they will want it

If you dream it into being, it’s the

dream that leaves us out there

far away from who we really are

 

I wonder what’s missing looking around at everything

All those dreams and schemes made manifest

That we all tuck our lives into for every reason

That gives rise to the Sun everyday

Work hard to gain.  Work hard to have

Work hard to make a future

Work hard cause that’s what

we do to get ahead, get there, get stuff

Get along, get stuck, get lonely

Feel a void, in the Out There

Cause It’s the Dream

 

If you join you’re a winner

If you Join you’re in the club

If you dream it, it’s yours

Out there, somewhere far

from who you really wanted

to dream yourself into being

 

What’s missing is not out there in that everything

Nothing ‘out there’ feeds the soul’s desire for

unity, oneness, love, peace, joy, creativity.

It’s just not ‘out there’ in the fraud of that

old over used dream.

 

“It’s in there Baby, right in your heart

so when you’re awaken to it you can

go out there and Be what you dreamed.”

AN ‘un-love’ poem. day 10 NaPoWriMo


day 10… so, the prompt from the NaPoWriMo site is to write an ‘Un-love’ poem on this tenth day.   hmmm?  Here I am, lil’ Missy Love n’ Light and I’m being invited into writing an ‘un-love’ poem.  eek.  And, I’m gonna let something fall out me and right now I’m thinkin’ it ain’t pretty. LOL

CROSSES TWIRLLED

I gonna un-love you today

this unimaginable act brings

food up in my mouth.

The scent of our many ended

yesterdays rolls off my breath,

fills the air around me in a gag,

a hold my breath moment

that makes un-loving you more

right than all the wrong of long ago.

of the vile taste that I can’t seem to

wash away with forgiveness.

the fetid linger of how I keep letting

the corrupt thoughts of kicking your

sorry ass from here to eternity

with some added blood and gore

burps up foul in sudden recognition

that I have yet to forgive myself

for allowing one drunken inch of you

anywhere near me in the ‘I see your

Light’ in the dark gloom of your eyes.

I’m gonna un-love you today

In the gather of self forgiveness

in the gather of self love

In the gather of loving you

freshly tomorrow in a way

that supports the light of you

far away from me.

HALLOWMAS… in honor of our ancestors


All Souls day, Day of the Dead,  Hallowmas, Samhain … Tonight, I ‘priestess’ a ritual at the Interfaith Center in honor of this time of year and with the intent of;

‘Release, let go, surrender, what does not serve your life, and take in the ‘seeds’ of what you wish to keep and plant, nurture to growth for the Spring.

In my spiritual tradition, this is time when ‘the veil between the physical and spiritual world is thin’ and there is opportunity to reflect on the wisdom of our ancestors and to honor those that have gone before us.  To release what doesn’t serve the joy and goodness of life and to imagine in this letting go what might give space to something new; a seed to plant and nurture during the winter time of reflection and darkness.

As I prepare for my day: I listen to my ancestors, I listened to my own wisdom, I plant the seeds of Love, joy, and kindness.  I reap what I sow.

IN HONOR OF MY MOTHER AND HER GREAT WISDOM… DOROTHY MARIE BEIER MICHIE.

MY MOMMA… 1916-2005

I let go of what isn’t so there is space for what IS

I surrender to my best and highest self

I already know all that I need to know

I trust I am enough exactly as I am

 

Each moment provides me with everything

I am Everything unfolding moment to moment

I am in each moment pure Love

I am loved unconditionally

 

I am the roots, the tree, the branches the leaves.

Earth holds me to her sacred roots

Fire feeds my passion and lights my way

Air is my breath and the wind that carries me

Water is my heart open and flowing

My ‘Other’ self


Those Scorpio Birthdays… Happy one to Pamela.  May this day be full of magic and joy.

This morning is full of golden leaves hardly making a flutter in the calm and stillness.  Very quiet out there in the chill and the hidden Sun.  I find it restful as I gather myself to go to work for a few hours.  Seems the chatty squirrels are in a hot banter over some fallen acorn, racing through the clutter of falling leaves.  They are a busy busy bunch of rodents. Cute, and noisy.

 Jill, sent out a prompt that invites us to consider our altered ego.  In the ‘normalcy’ of living a ‘day in the life’ of self, what might ‘another self’ being doing?  

 My ‘Other’ self

 The season shifts the meadow into a circle of Fire and Gold

The musk of the forest floor gathers the leafy carpet of oak and maple

Wafting the season’s end into my inhale as I sit centered on Gaia

In the Center, waiting, listening.  Held to the quiet want of heart’s desire

 

It’s been the same, time and time again, here in the busy silence 

When all seasons give to the forest a chatter of life beginning and ending

Me,here at meadows grassy center calling the heavens to open 

To lay beams of celestial light over my chanting incantations

 

My chanting incantations,  My chanting incantations.

The song in my heart plays itself in repeat here at my center

in the meadow, in the house, in this chair, here, with you.

Waiting for the beam of celestial light to fill me before I go to work

body parts


Ann Arbor Art Fair… last day… Weather report…Super Duper.  I walked most of it over a couple of days.  It’s still tooo big for me to inhale it all and not get ruffled around by the mass of people.  And oh so wonderful to see some great art.  Very impressive.  I bought a fake tooth that looks like a real tooth.  Yes…. I did.

 

Dan Banda… artist

my mother’s gold tooth

I like body parts connected or not

I know it’s a strange thing and

that’s just the start

 

It’s not like I want any body n’ gore

If your parts are connected

Please keep them they’re yours

 

It’s when artist they make them

in detached singular form

Fingers, n’ eyeballs, just not yours

 

I might hang them on chains

to wear around my neck

little sterling ‘parts’ so cute what the heck

 

I even have a vagina, oh yes I do

well made in fine silver

YOu might want one too

 

Perhaps I’ll collect them gather them all up

put them all on one chain

make a whole person up

 

In little pieces of metal, clay and bone

all gathered strategically

around my neck they will go

 

I know you’re all jealous of my little parts

I think to day if it feels right

I’ll wear Dan BAnda’s sterling heart

HAIKU… aaaachooo to you


Why not look everyone right in the eye today… What do you see, feel, smell?   Can you get comfortable in the uncomfortable?  Have a good and glorious day…

arial photography

Breathe in the Silence

Hold your space in quietude

Let peace fill you up

 

Trust what you know IS

Listen beyond your senses

Love always calls you

 

Alchemy mixes

The unlikely blends to match

Impossible wins

 

Who knew but you knew

The flight of your heart’s distance

Perching on loves twig

 

Make your story up

Be the greatest story told

Cherish your goodness

 

Infinity laughs

Nothing is impossible

The joke is on us

 

Ha Haha Ha ha

Laugh it up because you can

Give no resistance

MORE LOVE AND THEN SOME MORE OF IT


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

*************************

MORE LOVE AND THEN SOME MORE OF IT

 

Love is on my lips

It’s a permanent taste

Of sweet flesh and glow

Never to be forgotten

Mixed in to all that 

Passes in and through me

 

I only have to imagine it so

All that glow and luster

In the full of my mouth

A welcome flow of it

Through me, teasing.

Filling my heart

 

There is no reason

No reason at all 

To ever forget that

Sublime taste of

Loving and being Loved

It has settled deep within

 

It is a sacred essence

of All that Is even when 

The flesh of it still wants

And that desire hungers

For the silken caress

Of the Lover’s nights

 

Love is on my lips

To be licked and swallowed

Up like luscious fruit

Ripe for the taking

I let IT fill me up

Love in the heart never leaves
