What IF?

day 6, NaPoWriMo.

What IF?


If she decided to lay all that discontent down

  fill her Chalice with forgiveness,

  pour it all out and refill


If there were enough of us that give up

  on trying too hard to get it all right~


If you blessed your water with a million

  gratitudes before you drank it


If kindness found you open hearted

   no matter the situation


If we said what we mean and do what

   we say


If the riveting act of radical honesty

   became the wave of communing


If you ever let your heartache lead you

  to the truth of surrender


If you could believe in your Divine



If you could drink the river’s waters

If every breath was a sacred moment

If every moment was a sacred breath


if sacred meant a deep honoring of

  your living


If you could have the clarity of how

  tenderness heals a soul


If the flame in your heart burned for you joy


If the dive in to your chalice of forgiveness

  wants to drown you


What if…

What if…

You turn to Love no matter what?

What if

You turn to Love

No matter

What if?

Whirling dervish

Whirling dervish

Sippy the coffee. Make way through the morning rituals.  Shake the routine up a lil’ bit.  Add a new chorus line.  Vibe out with the coffee grinder, suffer the pets to wait an extra 3 minutes while the dishes get washed or you give admiration to the wonder of how life is soooo damn good.  Turn yourself around with arms flailing to the heavens, jig out on the spew and sputter of the coffee giving it’s black juice for the morning brain shimmy.  Howl out, “I’M ALIVE, I’M ALIVE, I’M ALIVE!”  That’s what it’s all about.  Breathe all that Livin’ in.

Revise the Hokey Pokey, even if it feels like it’s right the way it is.  Make it your own; “That’s what it’s all about.”

Toss your whole self in, and your whole self out, toss your whole self in, and shake some joy in, all around, and all about.  Do the Hokey Jokey Pokey, and you turn in spirals round and round.  That’s what it’s all about.  That’s what I’m talkin’ about.  OOOooooo eeeeeeEEEeeee.


Holy the Whole Self

Shimmer in the turn about

Laugh in the living




Burrrrrr… Sippy the hot coffee. This is what Spring is suppose to be.  I’m good with that.  Hoping the damage to the early blooms is minimal. Nature had her ‘Fool ya’ hat on like nearly 5 weeks early.  It sure has been pretty.  And…the Sun is rising in another blue sky.

I’m not so sure on the 32cd day of my ‘pilgrimage’ within me and around me, how successful I’ve been.  And perhaps that has nothing to do with it.  Actually, I’m pretty sure that I might as well give that thought right up.  Going with changes and flow in the Be Here Now, and you do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around… That’s what it’s ALL about.   I think there’s a song coming on…   oh my…


I put all my appendages in one at a time

At last flinging my entirety into the center

I shook and shimmied accordingly

Turned in circles, hands to the heavens

Making declaration to the All About

Cause it seems like that’s what it’s all about

I tried to not have expectation in the don’t assume

Letting the glow of praise fill me up

In the rapid heart beat of the turning all about


I use to think it might be ‘42’ and maybe it is

If you take the galactic ride across the universe

Thumb extended hitchin’ a ride with some alien yahoo

Orbiting galaxy after galaxy around and around

Certainly it is going around about the All About

Taking the long way from here to there and back

We’re still circling either way to find The Way.

All appendages accounted for attached to the body


The wagon-train of finding yourself is on the move

One way or The Other Way of your choosing.  

Circle up people, cause we’re gonna do a little dance

We never had to protect you from the Indians

Or the desert sands, or them rattlers and scorpions

Nope, it was your fear that was the renegade

Your fear that stole you away from peace-full

Fear circled you and you lost the All About

I’m here to tell you to ‘Turn yourself around’


Put your whole self in and shake the fear right off

Raise your hands to the heavens alleluia all about

Shimmy shake to face your neighbor

See the love and and Light within their eyes

That’s what it’s All About

Morning… I have moved the Tarot and Numerology to another Blog..  http://invitationtarot.com/

Please visit there for the continuing Daily/Birthday Tarot.

Thanks so much…


I am now the blog queen

I mean seems I gotta lot to say

On most days


Finding the way that works

Shake the quirks out

Shake it all about 


It’s the hokey pokey thing

On the wing of words high

Fly with it as it comes


Use to matter the success

Give it a rest for the best

Of what is yet to come


Just be the new blog queen

I mean… it’s what I do these days

Let the rays of it light a path


Maybe it shines a little for you

Who is looking for your own way

May it shimmer you just a little
