Sippy the coffee… The morning rituals nearly done then off for a shower and to work.  I light a candle for my loved ones, and for peace on Earth. I let what needs saying wander around and through me as I prepare to share here this morning.  I really didn’t want to ‘go here’ and yet, here it is….I give myself to the pondering of what motivates someone to bring closure to their life.  I love life and living.  I get that living isn’t for everyone for a many reasons.   Perhaps, life feels like it’s a Stalker, an invasive, obsessive force that seeks control without joy, rather than a life that feels like a joyous chase of possibilities.  I dedicate this morning to John and his loved ones.


Life was a Stalker

A crush of  joyless living

Spring will green again


Find peace in death’s want

Despair released in closure

You are love Divine


Choice to consequence

Endings bring new beginnings

Birth, life, death, again


Was she calling you?

Did your arms ache without her?

Do you hold her now?

If this day is your birthday or  you seek to deepen your today with some questions.. here’s an invite to you into how you might better engage and exchange with others, and how you have your own inner dialog and exchange.  It is a day/year to explore your accountability in your life, and to consider your own counsel; your own deep wisdom.

How do you experience and hold to your accountability?

What feels hidden, just beyond your vision and reach that you’d like to explore, or feel compelled to know?

What old habits have taken the shine away from your life and how will you polish that up?

Will the ground hog see his/her shadow today?   And what will it all mean when already the weather is kinda crazy?  eek.  CAuse I know you wanna know everything about that there ground hog… here is the Wikipedia site.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Groundhog_Day  For you pleasure… I’m giving out a big grin here. 

~~~~~~~~~      9         ~~~~~~~~~ 

When you see what is

Through the shadow, fog, and smoke

Always Sun rises


Cycles, patterns, seen

The circle is unbroken

Spring follows winter


Light will seek you out

There is no hiding radiance

YOu deserve to shine

Ground Hog’s Day

This birthday year or thoughts for this day might be something like this…:  The Hermit shares his/her wisdom.  He holds a beacon of light that sways in the faraway or maybe the foggy night letting you know that wisdom is not so faraway and that the fog can be lifted with a thought and action.

Even in the shadows of the Moon, light isn’t but a step out where what was hidden can be seen or found.  And the Moon shares her cycles, her pattern in the night sky.  Cycles and patterns of light, seen, hidden, calling.

What cycle/pattern works best for you in life?

What do the shadows of your life have to share with you?

How do you share your wisdom and shine your light?

There’s no keeping up 

Thinking you can in the ‘so much’

Amidst the distractions and 

The busy whip of the daily to the bone

Exhaustion past the creeping in slow

Laying you out drained for ‘real’ life


The ‘too much’ is a killer dis-ease

The new way of the no way out

A dark cloud of have too’s

Cause if you don’t you’re fucked

The line is long to take your job

And who’s gonna pay your bills?


Serenade the 24/7  a big hello

There is no goodbye to the all day


Cause someone else is starving

24/7 of nothing makes for a craving

When that kind of bone is showing


It’s never been fair and equal

The dark and light of this and that

Makes that so even in the good intention

Duality can’t exist in any otherwise

It’s the nature of the physical world

Sooner or later your life drains out


There’s no keeping up

The ‘so much’ wants you

In the everyday of living

maybe the best you got in the unequal

is to lay a layer of laughter around

your bones before they’re striped dry


The first of February seems to have found its way here realllllly fast.  Don’t ya think?  NO slowing it all down, just going with the flow.  And… of course sippy the coffee as the Sun rises.  Should there be a day that my coffee consumption must dribble to an end, I will be most sad.  eeek.. NO projection, shake it off.  Be Here Now.



1 feb 2012     > 8/17  >    Balance/adjustment/The Star


If it’s your birthday on this 1st day of Feb.  Happy Birthday and here are some things to ponder as this ‘new year’ unfolds.   Adjusting and Balancing the flow of life.  REaching for the Heavens, while feeling the vulnerability of being human with the limitation that come with that… and.. still allowing for the reach and the feel of the vulnerability.  Letting the experience of making the connection between what is here and what is out there.  Seeking that balance.  Well being is a part of the experience of The Star: self care, positive attitude, feeling out what is right for your body, your mind, your spirit.

How might you define, body, mind, and spirit in the context of your life?

How will you keep balance with what goes on within you and that which goes on around you?

What will you reach for?

I cried for the whole world today

The entirety of all it filling me

Every ocean, every sea, every lake

every river, every pond, every puddle

I drank it all in and spilled it out

Sobs of sorrow and grief

Wails for poverty and loss

Howls for war and death

I wept for the dead kitten

I wept for my sick brother

I wept for a friend in need

I wept for me and you and them

I shook with the violence of

all those tears released

The magnitude of it all 


I cried for the whole world

I was the oceans and seas

and lakes and rivers and ponds.

For awhile, I let myself puddle

and then I prayed for peace

and love and kindness

healing and gratitude

I sniveled out hope

I gave a whimper of forgiveness

I moaned out a I’m sorry

When the tidal wave of it ceased

and the whole world had my heart

I forgave myself 





30 jan 2012    >  9/18   >   Hermit/Moon


If this be your birthday or just another wonderful day, here are some thoughts and questions to consider.

The Hermit shares his/her wisdom.  He holds a beacon of light that sways in the faraway or maybe the foggy night letting you know that wisdom is not so faraway and that the fog can be lifted with a thought and action.

Even in the shadows of the Moon, light isn’t but a step out where what was hidden can be seen or found.

How will you step out of your shadows?

What light do see just over there that calls to you to take action?

How do you bring the ‘faraway’ within reach?

I finished my contest story and I’m readying it for sending it out.  It’s A strange one tho’ I gotta say I find pleasure in it’s odd poetics.  I’m thinking that it will probably appeal to a minority,  which in a contest like this with a few hundred peeps, I might get dismissed right away.  The best part of this is having been given some parameters in writing and then having a week to write it.  I feel stretched in my writing.  A very good thing.If you want to read it, just ask and I’ll send it to you. Here is a little slice of it (not the beginning)  for todays poetic entry…


There was a time when there was pleasure in the ache of the Bite.  When it came like a crystal sway of sparkle and glitter taking us beyond our limited selves to a greater self for to find the treasures of the Frigid Sea. Its need to drive the Great White to the South Away expansion seemed less urgent and it’s drive into our bodies a gentle pain.

I could feel its tremble urgency as it staked it’s claim on my body.  Maybe it knew I was the Sacrifice, the Gift, and was bound to go beyond the Great White to end my days.  I wanted the ache of it, for the last time, to sear me from the inside out.  Make my body scream strong for my giving to the final Great Lonely.



28  jan  2012   >   16/7  >   Tower/Charioteer


If this is your birthday than you might consider these thoughts and questions for the year, or… perhaps today is enough.   The Tower invites you to consider how you build your life.  How you  might gather to you what is important, and what will be sustainable, as well as how you will do this creatively with out going to far away from the foundation/base of you.  The Charioteer asks that you keep your focus, your ‘eyes on the prize’ as you prepare and gather information for what it is that feels important to you. There maybe a time when your shear will will be needed to take action on behalf of you life.   

What do you wish to give your focus to and how will you do that?

Have you filled your tower with too much of what and is it working for you?

What inspires you that you would like to give more of yourself to

Morning… I am steeped in this short story I’m writing for this contest.  What was I thinking?  It’s not my forte’ to do this and yet I really want to beable to write past my comfort zone.

The contest sends you three things that must be part of the story.  First.  Genre… which for me is Fantasy, next.. the subject; Frost Bite, and the Character; Mathematician.  Yep…   So…I’m writing a way at this Fantasy about Frost Bite and a Mathematician. I  might share.


Back to the Zero

Minus and plus the many

It’s where we began


The frost gives its Bite

Burns cold the freeze of winter

No linger on ice


Lust for life well lived

Listen beneath the chatter

you already know





23 jan 2012   >  11/2/20   >  Lust/Strenth/Priestess/Aeon/Judgement

Today invites you into how you exchange with other and how you have your own inner dialog.  It is a day to explore your accountability in your life.  And.. It is a day to consider your own counsel, your own deep wisdom.


What conversation might you want with yourself to clear out what doesn’t serve you?

If you sit silently with yourself, what wisdom rises up to speak to you?

What is the difference in following your instincts and following your intuition?

Sippy the really good coffee.  I am contemplating a short story I have agreed to write in this contest I’m in.  www.nycmidnight.com puts on several contests over the year and for my own experience in writing in different genre and styles, I have been participating.  They send us all a genre, a character, and a subject.  Mine is; FAntasy, math teacher, frostbite.  Yep,  that’s right, kinda crazy.  I’ll keep you updated.  For now, I will just give myself to a poem as that is what I do here every morning with no darn idea of what’s gonna roll of my brain, like right now.  Wat?  more sippy.


Sitting here with my kitty

Lap dog feeling kinda needy

Vying always for all my love


It’s just what happens when I be tappin’

at these keys for some poetic mappin’

The pets want a bit of all of me


Presently, the precious darlings

go away from my glare and snarling

Settle in to the over there


It’s not that I don’t care their feelings

It’s the needy that gets me seething

you’d think by now they’d know my stare


At last we settle into quiet time

I get to play out some poetic rhyme

That I lay out right here for me


I sorta care if you like it

If you don’t then you can bite it

Makes me laugh to write that down


Of course I care wouldn’t you?

I write each day it’s what I do

I blog it up and give it out


Anyway, what the hell

I’m amused and that is swell

Some days are more better


I’m closing this up time to go

This little rhyme is ready to show

See ya later in the bye bye

22 jan 2012   >  10/19/1   >  Wheel of Fortune/Sun/Magician

‘1’ can be the loneliest number, and ‘1’ has tools.  The magician gathers the elements of earth, fire, air, and water and finds a way to use them in service to Spirit.  Or so it might go in the positive expression of singularity.  Today asks of you to consider yourself.  Consider how you might spin on the wheel of life, shine, and how you might use the tools you have gathered in life to make life it’s best.

What tool might you use today to finish a project, start a project, give of yourself, or take time for your own pleasure?

What does it mean to shine?

Is today a day to push the edges of life, or stand in the center of life?
