Moon Cycles

The Moon resides in me.

I celebrate the moon.

 

Waning sleep cycle

Of a goddess,

Receding for comfort,

Needing stillness

And the small voice

quiet in shadows

speaks to me,

hibernating cells

Relinquishing fire,

A fragile unshelling

Waiting to come out

fully

awakened,

my surging ocean moving

Across sands and pebbled beaches,

An expanding heart

Gathering points of light

A pulsating

Chakra orb,

A constellation of stars

And synoptic sparks

on fire.

 

Creative Lunars

“the creative lunars are out” she said,

With music like honey on her lips,

And the red moon hanging low.

 

Into the cold-blue I went outside

with cats dancing in the shadows

and hair cascading into the night

 

And lay on the playground slide

Still chill and stared into the sky

Mesmerized by her aberration

Comforted by her transformation.

That moment when

the moon sets behind the mountain

and the sun rises from the sea

there is a stillness inside of me

Caustic Dreams


IMG_20130817_184958_147

When the illumined are illumed

in the shadows of darkness,

Twisted thoughts masking initial intent,

writhing, stark remains of regurgitated words

pound relentlessly in falling heart,

sharp pain spreading like fingers

across sordid language,

tossing and turning in hoping, just hoping,

hoping eating the edges of fantasy,

crossing caustic fields of a western stake out,

guns drawn shaking in gut, in mind, in doubt,

deathly bullets of love

never seemed so tragic

as forever not true,

…Not then

…not now

…not ever

Sending me reeling,

keening into the night

of your reality.
