NATURE WINS !


23 April 2019

~

Some poems are a ramble… Like this one. Sat down and this is what I got.

~~~~~

Nature is persistent in the way She gives

There is not a moment when the giving stops

Not a moment when Nature is ceaselessly

recalibrating where she will unleash Her elements

to make beauty or lay mayhem.

If the Sun isn’t shining here, it is somewhere else

If it’s raining here, it isn’t somewhere else

A draught means there is a flood, somewhere else

And endless conspire to do as She pleases.

Displaying Her might and sovereignty

wherever she Will.

There is no fooling Nature, 

There is no controlling Nature.

There often is no rhyme or reason

Nature does not need us to thrive

She privileges us with her allowance

in tolerating our insipid taking

from her with giving little if any

return.  

Nature Wins

We are a dis-ease on her

May we learn to ceaselessly

honor her before she does

a back flip and we’re gone

Nature wins

Bring your sense of wonder

Make the wardrobe for your body

A collection of endless magnificence

Lay the soul of your footprints

across the night sky

Let the constellation of Love navigate

The endless fortune of change

Make your house not be a four-sided container

Give it the vastness of a hot surging nebula

Whirling and seething 

In the Infinite arms of the unknown

WHOLY, HOLY, WHOLE


21 April 2019

Eyes closed in the deep darkness

Shiver off the fear of alone

Breathe into the pulsing heart space

Let this space be a w-holy place

~

Fear can brand with fork and tongue

All of that story line gets ill defined

Breathe into the pulsing heart space

Let this space be a Wholy place

~

What is it to give reverence to your cathedral

The land of blood, bones, heart and skin

Wholy, Holy, Whole are we in the dark

Holy, wholy, Whole are we in great Light

~

Rise, awaken, sprout green from winter’s cave

Shimmer in the Sun’s radiant beam

Reverent remembrance of renewal

Be this moment in perfect harmony

~

Eyes wide open in the silent light

Quivering with love’s life renewal

Breathe into your pulsing heart space

Let this blessed space be your W-Holy place

~

Dedicated to Kali Ma

Pantoum.  Dedicated to Kali Ma

~~

Strip it down, lay it all out vulnerable

Unmask the false face of so many yesterdays

Be seen in the raw, unadulterated you

Risk the loses that have held you life-less 

~

Unmask the false face of so many yesterdays

Fear has never been a kind and gracious friend

Risk the loses that have held you life-less

Stop the lie that makes you small and empty

~

Fear has never been a kind and gracious friend

Holds you ransom to powerlessness and lonely

Stop the lie that makes you small and empty

Love will not think less of you in your truth

~

Holds you ransom to powerlessness and lonely

The cage gets smaller with every fear enlarged edition

Love will not think less of you in your truth

What you destroy give space for creations magic

~

The cage gets smaller with every fear enlarged edition

Be seen in the raw, unadulterated you

What you destroy gives space for creations magic

Strip it down, lay it all out vulnerable

HAVE WE TALKED YET


18 April 2019

The Gilded Tarot

~

Have we talked yet 

about the hard conversations

  when your body refuses you

  when loneliness consumes you

  when every which way is no way

  when abandonment keeps you victim

  when you feel not enough or

    maybe too much

  when nothing will Ever be perfect

  when death takes a beloved

  when aging lies to you

  when youth betrays you

  when loves leave you

  when dis-ease eats away at you

  when death stalks you

~

Have we talked yet

 about the way love finds us

   in the sudden heart opening

   in a flirt of an eye

   at the coffee shop

   in remembrance of what was

   in the feeling of what Is

   at that wedding

   in the gentle caress

   in the hard fuck

   at a spiritual retreat

   in an unexpected moment

   in the radiance of another light

  at the corner from your house

~

Have we talked yet 

  about our closeness to the Earth

  about the way a walk in a 

     a forest clears the busy mind

  about how trees and plants

    desire our communion

  about the dance of the clouds

  about the rain’s heart beats

  about the way the river calls you

  about a murmuration

  about how the fey entities know you

  about moss and leaves and dirt

  about noticing the song of dragonflies

  about the seasons greetings

  about rolling in the leaves

  about swimming naked in the sea

~

Have we talked yet

  about the Infinite Universe

  about the magnificence of Being

  about the Truth of Love

  about sin and evil

  about rage and joy

  about the wonder of breathing

  about feelings and emotions

  about the Holy grail

  about the nothingness and 

     the Everything

  about how we care for each other

  about kindness and grace

  about the transparency of honesty

~

Have we talked yet

  Because, I’d like to know you

Queen of Whispering Darkness


15 April 2019.  napowrimo

Facebook brings interesting offerings. This is a shareable one for a little ‘poeming’

What’s Your Tarot Card Name? mmmmm?

~

you are all That

Queen of Whispering Darkness

Give of your secrets on a wisp of dark

Dwell in the quietude of soft words

All hail to the absence of Light

~

Eyes closed to receive the gratitudes

Life dispenses the latitudes in moments

Fill me with the bounty of shadows

So that I might know my brilliance

~

In the silence infinity is remembered

In full surrender this open heart

In sovereignty I receive  wisdom’s gifts

To the whisper I give myself fully

~

And in the name that I now claim

I am the same and different

on a  whisper, in the dark

All is known and soon forgot

~

In choice all comes to repeat

Love is the great retreat waiting

Close to your heart ears listen

Timeless in this message

~

Queen of Whispering Darkness

remains in shadow’s keep

Out Loud she reigns in all her Light

Both Shadow and Light hold The answers

~

There is No Poem today


t

14 April 2019.  napowrimo.

There is no poem today

Only questions for your

 answering

Only ponderings that 

 might tease at your edges

 remind you of what matters

 most

~

A deeper invitation to collect your

 idle thoughts that need collecting

To sift out all the busy of

 that brain you overwork

 to settle into your best self

Your true self that hungers for

  peace and joy

To let you feel more than

 think 

~

There is no poem today

Only these questions :

~

What lights you up and gets you going?

What do you thirst for?

When did you last share yourself in love?

Are you enough as you are?

What brings you joy?

What do you keep hanging on to?

   Why?

How many times a day are you grateful?

Did you know that you can make a difference?

What is the one thing you can do to 

  make the Earth healthy?

How would you make better what you do?

Who do you think you are?

~

There is no poem today

Just these questions

just because
