Not Far From the Moon


Not far from the moon,
Jupiter winked back,
and I started to fly,
up and higher
stretching out to darkness,
wanting to go in,
longing to vanish in cool
blackness peppered with
diamonds

Ahhh

The journey continued,
bright star super nova
approaching, engulfing,
each piece of illusion
burned into comet tails,
there I go again, oh
lost another one.

Then renaissance,
blazing eruption
and
here I am again,
another blast off,
another star birth,
zooming toward earth.

Landing with grace and ease,
peaceful arrival,
I'm captured again,
but laugh as I'm held,
smile as I play
cosmic dramas,
always safe,
always peace,
knowing.


And still,
I love stars.

Remembering


Come here.
I'm going to become the widest ocean,
darkness and silence,
penetrating all barriers,

Listening

Witnessing
Welcoming
Experiencing
the story of you,
Loving you,
as
no other.

Watching,
as you turn yourself
inside out
and outside in again.
Never knowing
exactly what or
who or why.

No matter.
The deepest sea cannot unwelcome,
cannot reject Itself.
It can only be
you.

And that's when you forget,
and you disappear,
and the ocean remembers..





We Are The Way


I thought I was a sprinter
it turns out I'm an
endurance runner

that's how god dreamed me

burnt up
broken open
washed and died

shatter me

shatter me

so that I can drown
in the liquid gold
pouring
from pale pink
wounds

that never were

rising up
everything is new
and I know

nothing
joyful relief, it is
feeling
that heals, after all

we didn't know
we are innocent
there is really nothing there

and yet

here we are

swirling in twisted ecstasy
posing as grief
loss separation

and love

love

love

no choice but to be

lightning searches
relentlessly
for the ground

it'll find a way

we are the way
