pregnant void into which all things arise
The Great Mystery you open up to
and all that lies through and beyond.
Seawater sea of blood
We never die.
Tis a labor of love
My God…Oh My God
Birthing unseen to be seen
the one no longer and not yet
ever said it would be easy
Please look me in the eye
and tell me
tell me everything will be ok
soon it will be ok.
who is the one you are becoming
for everything is waiting for you.

TEMPLE OF TEARS
Tether to the heavens
holy sanctuary fallen to thy knees
bow down before
palms open wide
offer this all give up hand over
sacred songs shed sob weep whimper wail howl cry
——for all the hidden tears beneath the surface
——for all the years we never cried
——for all the secret unseen selves to be set free
——for all the lives never mourned
——for those who never wept
Dear one I promise you,
This too shall pass.

WOUNDS OF THE WORLD
These threads stitch wed weave
all the wounds of the world

and soothe the pain
bear to bring
we have been brought together
woven within wholeness
weaving a wound
Mother Me Whole

LIFE BIRTHING MORE LIFE
Take root- a deep dive deep down in
underneath ground down below the surface
woven into the skin of the forrest floor.
Living through a great something
that which is beyond the
unknown nobody knows unknowing who knows
Wise Wisdom Ways of the land
summon cry out call beckon
Are you listening
shhh listen close then listen even closer
life birthing life births more
seeds spring up take flight
burst bloom out and away
rising up against all odds
Do not give up
Don’t you dare give up now
My love what is your wildest dream
for this is just the beginning…
Mixed media on canvas, 20x16 inches, March 2020-21
Sometimes the space you are used to
is not where you belong.
Do you dare move beyond what you see and know
Stitched patchwork of many lives
Begin to unravel and unwind
known as falling apart fallen to thy knees
twisting back in through over again and again.
These invisible threads
Loop then to now
Tie this to that
Thread old to new
Join me to you
Link eye to eye
Bind heart to heart
The Weaver weaving a web
That which is being woven
Mixed media on canvas, March 2020
Dear lover lay you down to rest
a slow death dieing
holding no longer
hold no more.
A parting farewell
Tis’ the time so long
the time has come
leave you here
let you go
let you be.
Please Please remember
Sometimes we must die
to be born
whole all over again.

STATE OF RETURN
These great divides-
it was like this before
right now its like this.
Move from here to there
what must be done
all you can not do
We did not come this far to only get this far
Thinning of the self- through the self
A State of return
the great way
of the way
to the way
becomes the way
My dear please remember
every single tiny little step is

FINDING OUR WAY

walking into towards through and beyond
the invisible path
remembering every single tiny little step is the way
to finding our way
Mixed media on canvas, 14x11 inches, October 2020
for our many lives been
come in close close criss cross collide
loop twist tie tangle
threading towards-to-through and beyond.
Touch some secret language have no words
dear Lov-er of Love
Do Not Look Away-
my friend please do-not-look-away.

fallen to Love
Love in Love Loving Love
then stray away long gone lost
come back in
all over again.

Parting Of The Red Sea
Do you believe
Do you believe in miracles?
These impossible night sea journeys
continue my love in the face of death
step forward step to step towards
go stand bow down before these great waters
tidal waves mouth of the oceans open up wide
Parting of the sea bestows secret passageways
Go in-Cross over-Pass through
A deliverance- that which gives rise
into holy promise lands where you will never ever be the same
You can not go back
My dear there is no going back.
Mixed media on canvas, 15x15 inches, July 2021
Mind spinning stories speaking lies
telling body talking words twisting truths.
These great crusades and heavenly holy wars
meeting of the lost secret selves behind the Self.
Sacred encounters with all the dragon demons
battles of the spirits of the soul.
Wear me out bring me fall down fallen to thy knees
revelations of the Heart
cry crying out cry-cry
Let Me Let You Go.
Mixed media on window frame, 33 x 21 inches, 2019
How honest will you be with yourself
Truth seeking Truth
under the truth
behind the truth speaking truths
of the bigger TRUTH.
Do not forget the truth will set you free
all that watches the watched
sees the one beyond
pure clear eyes clear seeing
no longer and not yet
what was and is to become
who you are will find its way
Patience my love
you must be able to wait for your
life to fall into place.

SECRETS MAKE YOU SICK
These sacred knots
wound ache pains
loop twist tie tangle
layer upon layer upon layer
underneath below flesh of skin
this runs deep
real deep down in there.
revealing many of the many lives trapped inside.
Do you dare pause stop stand still?
Do you dare listen
A voice crave cry call
screams thy name aloud
A voice that yearns to speak
Mixed media on canvas, 36 x 24 inches, 2018
Many of the many many places we come from
have been are going and
where we meet in the middle…
someone- a thing- anything- nothing
neither could be on our own.
Yonder over there from afar
take in been taken
fill up- filling all the way up
filled up full
seeing all the way through
Dreaming dreams and beyond
finally dream alive
To where we are Now.
Mixed media on canvas, 20x16 inches, June 2020
We find our way
walk wandering side by side
lives become woven within
a moving forward
to journey on
Mixed media on canvas, 8x8 inches, July 2021
fallen to thy knees
an evening of sacrifice
Bow on down
to offer up
freely give all to thee
let go-let go-let go-
Let You Be
