Exhaling and Waters Lifting


Rainy day in Pahala

Rainy day in Pahala

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That opening into the universe

Where prayers move in and out with the wind

And silent rivers move

Ferocious in strength,

Yet calm

Waters lifting,

Trickling droplets

Of mind

Yearning,

Acquiescing

to accept, without protesting,

The current,

The flow,

Letting go.

Grounding

And the sound of doves

And the distant sound of people moving

Awoke me

And I dare not move

Less my breathing change

And daylight slip away

Before I open my eyes

Exhaling

Slowly.

Anticipating Dawn


Day 8

I swallow the stars as I breathe in,

Releasing them into the universe,

My heart beating rapidly with fire,

Knowing, anticipating, wanting,

Counting seconds of light before

She arrives, soft, beautiful, brilliant.

Ode To Uhaloa

Day 6:

Ode To Uhaloa

You, who draw from the well of being,

Breathe in with your roots,

The elements that keep us all alive,

The soil we consume, the air we breathe,

The connective space that holds all together,

Not empty,

But full,

Extending, reaching in adulation

To the light

To be crystalized, glistening rich

with oils and fine hair like velvet,

Small but vibrant,

Insignificant yet radiant,

Offering,

Sacrifice,

Giving,

Gift,

I ask permission

To take, to taste, to hold, to absorb, to internalize, to breathe out with you on my lips,

On my skin, on my tongue and finger tips,

I Thank you.

Wild Swan Cry

She steps away from chaos

And the ache

That comes from too many words

Or not enough

Breathing out

Releasing

Smoke hovering

Disappearing into spring air

Blue black with night

she leans

Her shadow reminiscent of daylight

Her soul drifting in starlight

And the sound of wild swans

Crying with urgency

Breaking the silence of darkness

Like her heart

Wanting, needing, knowing

Soaring in a timeless movement

She is arriving, migrating

Like her thoughts

to a warmer place.
