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.

 

The Rock


 

It’s been a while since I’ve been there,

a patch of light to clear the mind,

a breath of air,

cold slab

stone to sit on,

hooded jackets bulging

with apples,

and emptiness.

Silence is the turning of the leaves,

bootstraps caked with mud and dung

and thin ice in the shadows of barren trees,

oak and sarsaparilla,

waiting for that stillness to begin,

quieting the beating wings

inside me.

That small place,

those dark blue skies

illuminate my need to be alive,

away from noise and thought,

a solitary walk,

alone,

ingesting my own silhouette,

to know, to bear, to feel, to welcome

nothing,

once again.

still waters


mauna loa setting

be still my heart

as a mountain absorbed

in mist, in rain, in sun,

her beauty grounded

in her own knowing.

be still

as the spirit stilled the sea,

still my heart,

so I can simply be

here, present, believe

those tears that grace my face

are not mine,

or in reality,

selfishly,

about you or me,

with all the troubles in the world today,

these tears are

just a seeker’s trail,

her heartstrings journey

bound

through ancient time

til’ now,

her still waters,

living waters,

still waiting to be found.
