COLLIDING PARADIGMS

A matrix of illusive illusions in call to kinship desires

Paradigms collide hoping for the win

Fear wants for the caress of love and safety

How the ease is made for these deceptions

Paradigms collide hoping for the win

Choices make way for diverse consequences

How the ease is made for these deceptions

“Only you can prevent forest fires”

Choices make way for diverse consequences

Power is not over other, it is within

“Only you can prevent forest fires”

Power is not over other, it is within

Stake your power to the Highest good

Your land needs your greatest care

Stake your power to the Highest Good

Fear wants for the caress of love and safety

Your land needs your greatest care

KINDNESS… a pantoum


There is no ponder to an act of kindness

Kindness comes as it will like breathing

It is the only pathway to peace and love

A lay down of all that holds us to fear and resistance

 

Kindness comes as it will like breathing

There is never a time it doesn’t caress the heart

A lay down of all that holds us to fear and resistance

Choices lead to consequences

 

There is never a time it doesn’t caress the heart

Fear stains the heart’s beat with certain death

Choices lead to consequences

Sequences, like bad habits need adjusting

 

Fear stains the heart’s beat with certain death

In your defenselessness your safety lies

Sequences, like bad habits need adjusting

How will you adjust to Kindness’s call?

 

In your defenselessness your safety lies

It is the only pathway to peace and love

How will you adjust to Kindness’s call?

There is no ponder to an act of kindness

On Puppy Love.. a pantoum

 

In the expression lies the answers

All that sweetness carries the heart homeward

Of puppy love in the fluff and cuddle

How clever nature is to know the work of that tease

 

All that sweetness carries the heart homeward

Fills the pulses up with the flutter of desire and want

How clever nature is to know the work of that tease

The breath of it is the scent of seduction

 

Fills the pulses up with the flutter of desire and want

Swoons the mind into the charms of the beloved

The breath of it is the scent of seduction

The heart so open it has room for even more love

 

Swoons the mind into the charms of the beloved

Who can deny the pleasure of all that sweetness?

The heart so open it has room for even more love

The infancy of love cherishes the romp of the heart

 

Who can deny the pleasure of all that sweetness?

Bring on all that tender and joy

The infancy of love cherishes the romp of the heart

Wrap yourself in the gift of a heart truly open

 

Bring on all that tender and joy

Of puppy love int eh fluff and cuddle

Wrap yourself in the gift of a hear truly open

In the expression lies the answer.

You’re Barking Up The Wrong Tree Woman…a pantoum


day #5.  NaPoWriMo

DSCN0346

You’re barking up the wrong tree woman

I haven’t climb up into those branches in decades

It was what you did when finding how far you could go

And who your were in the climb of all that

 

I haven’t climb up into those branches in decades

When youth teased curiosity into that risk

And who your were in the climb of all that

Displayed among leaf and branch nearing the top

 

When youth teased curiosity into that risk

Safety felt better in the way up there in the sky high

Displayed among leaf and branch nearing the top

Earth bound meant a different accountability

 

Safety felt better in the way up there in the sky high

Bravery had it’s perks to the less courageous climber

Earth bound meant a different accountability

Closer to the Sun and sky made breathing easier

 

Bravery had it’s perks to the less courageous climber

It was what you did when finding how far you could go

Closer to the Sun and sky made breathing easier

You’re barking up the wrong tree woman.

A Fools JUMP… a pantoum


Hello and welcome to day #1 of Poetry month.  The whole month of April is about poetry.  All my days are about poetry in some form or another.  For the next 29 days I will be writing a poem each day gathering my prompts this time around form the Tarot card archetypes.  As some of you know, I’ve done this many times before.  I love being pulled back into the process.  Here is a website for this experience should you be so inclined to want more.  www.napowrimo.net.  My blog is among the many.

Also, I have a new blog that I am writing  in my local Crazy Wisdom Journal.  Here is that link… https://crazywisdomjournal.squarespace.com/blog/2014/3/31/fooling-around

Always love having feedback and comments.

A Fools Pantoum.

There is no foolishness wasted
A fearless jump into life with eyes open
With a heart’s willingness to allow
Love is spacious in its giving

A fearless jump into life with eyes open
That first step off from the being told not to
Love is spacious in its giving
Not held to the restriction of limitations

That first step off from the being told not to
This was not a frivolous fool’s dare
Not held to the restriction of limitations
A magnificent surrender to the known unknown

This was not a frivolous Fool’s dare
Giving up everything to have everything
A magnificent surrender to the known unknown
Life’s jump does not make for reckless abandon

Giving up everything to have everything
The Fool has the Holy Grail filling and flowing always
Life’s jump does not make for reckless abandon
Love and life is fully embraced in the free fall

The Fool has the Holy Grail filling and flowing always
With a hearts willingness to allow
Love and life is fully embraced in the free fall
There is no foolishness wasted

DISTRACTION … a pantoum


2012-10-12 10.35.13

Distraction leads the Way to far away

Not for the grass to be greener

In the over there on that other side

Once there looking back to where you came from

 

Not for the grass to be greener

It’s more being pulled away from the moment

Once there looking back to where you came from

Yearning to be in that place  before the muse arrived

 

It’s more being pulled away from the moment

Maybe that moment held too much need

Yearning to be in the place before the muse arrived

She is an airy wisp of dreamy want

 

Maybe that moment held too much need

Some moments are like that in the working through

She is an airy wisp of dreamy want

She will hold you close once she has you

 

Some moments are like that in the working through

In the over there on that other side

She will hold you close once she has you

Distraction leads the Way to far away

Love, A Full Moon, and Alchemy


A Full Moon and a Happy Love Fest day to you.  Really, let’s make everyday a Love Fest day.

The number for this day is ’14’ and for the numerology purists, it’s a ‘5’ day.  I’m holding to the ’14’ with the influence of that ‘5’ because as a Tarot Card enthusiast, I like to be able to include all the Major Arcana cards when they give their call to be heard.

’14’, in the Major Arcana of the Rider Waite deck  is called Temperance while some other decks call this card ‘Art’, ‘Alchemy’.  Whatever you choose, what I feel and know of this card, among the many stories that live in it, is that it is an invitation into the magic of mixing the unlikely with the impossible and making something amazing.  Finding out that what you didn’t think would work works or that what you thought might work doesn’t and you try again.  There is beauty and information in the creation of mistakes.  There is beauty and magic in the information of experimentation.

On this Full Moon, Valentines day, I invite you to open your heart and feel the flow of Love enter your day/week/life  to the possibility that what you thought/believe was impossible, really is an opportunity to mix it up and find the wonder and creative beauty in the unlikely.  Love may be right there waiting for you to notice.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALOVE’s Pantoum

 

Mix the unlikely in the pot of love

Let the impossible find the heart’s center

Give temper to the knelling in the heat of it

Passion calls and will you listen to the deep

 

Let the impossible find the heart’s center

There is not a time that love is not waiting for you

Passion calls and will you listen to the Deep

Fire and water will find their match

 

There is not a time that love is not waiting for you

All corners of the Universe seek Love’s light

Fire and water will find their match

Burn and flow with the improbable

 

All corners of the Universe seek Love’s light

Give temper to the knelling in the heat of it

Burn and flow with the improbable

Mix the unlikely in the pot of love.
