The Cloud within my feet

Impact from a water drop causes an upward &quo...

Image via Wikipedia

I stood on top a cloud today
Dipped my toes
Within
And heard the murmurings
Of a thousand oceans
The tides that had drawn
And changed beneath
Feet like mine
That declared
Only one world of water
But could exist
I dipped deeper
Knowing
That I would never
Truly know
In this mortal form
How many oceans
Or seas there had been before
And would be again
Reflecting
On the images of
myself

A Kiss from the Universe

Today,
not long ago,
I received a kiss,
from the Universe.
It came as a whisper,
and a nudge,
and I like to believe,
an affirmation,
of the faith,
I have breathed through,
whether Jesus, Mother Mary,
the Universal Father and Mother,
the Buddha,
whomever and whatever,
collects the tenancy of our souls,
for safekeeping,
cherishing,
the wishes in our hearts.

I received,
a tap on the shoulder,
a reminder,
to write,
to share,
and to welcome,
others in that circle.

Thank you.

You know who you are.

The Faeries

The trees began to curl into themselves

but first

color themselves in the light

of Fall colors.

The edges began to creep,

creep,

and creep further in,

and every time they did,

the Faeries,

would curl up their toes,

closer to their immortal legs,

and hide.

The ledges of time

became smaller,

the space

to hide,

smaller yet,

and the Faeries knew,

there were not too many daylight hours

left to hide.

They unfurled in the night,

becoming themselves,

unbent from the leaves,

from human eyes.

Oh,

how they thanked the darkness for the need

of most,

humans,

to sleep.

They slipped from the leaves,

stretching their limbs,

nimbly alighting hundreds of feet to the ground,

to start the next day’s work

on the century’s task.

they had agreed to.

Sounds in the night

You must have heard them, haven’t you?

The almost, indescribable sounds of night.

Not the ones that keep you waiting on your next breath,

the ones removed,

silent,

peacefully exhaling.

You wonder sometimes,

how it can be,

that the same darkness

can breed such separate sets of emotion,

but it happens,

doesn’t it?

Just like in the day.

I was touched this evening,

very touched,

by words in a book,

I found,

in a dollar store today.

I mean no disrespect to the author,

paying such a slight amount.

Is it an excuse that it is all the vendor asked

and I did not bargain down further?

Without further ado, I share:

“Don’t you know she is the one who came out of her mother’s womb, leaving her mother dead?

Do you know who brought her from the hospital? Her mother’s brother, who didn’t even cry that night. Not one teardrop? No.

Unknown to them, you see what they say.

Will you keep your back turned, angry and hurt? Or will you put on a smile, walk straight into their waiting arms, into their trap of pity? I don’t know.

All I know is that in this city of twelve million, if six or seven, even ten people, say words that hurt, they are a speck in the ocean. Wait for a while, the moon will slide into the right place, the clouds will gather, there will come a tide and with it a wave that will wash this speck away.”

The Blue Bedspread, by Raj Kamal Jha

I say to you then, namaste, in your deepest moments of the night, “the moon will slide into the right place.”

Letting Go

The sweet smell of freedom

the chorus

of unrehearsed melody

Today,

I had a day “off”

I sifted through “old” writings

I sifted through “old” drawings

and

I threw them out

I feel lighter.

Books, books………..muse………tag
