Birth.jpg

BIRTH

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 bleed
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
       Nobody
ever said it would be easy
Please
Please look me in the eye
  and tell me
tell me everything will be ok
  soon it will be ok.
   My dear
who is the one you are becoming
                               for everything is waiting for you.

Temple of Tears 1.jpg

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
cry out-cry-cry-crying
——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,
I promise,
   This too shall pass.

Wounds of The World.jpg

WOUNDS OF THE WORLD


These threads stitch wed weave
all the wounds of the world
into
wisdom of the wise woman way
where we
unite the gaps
yoke separation
mend brokenness
and soothe the pain
bear to bring
bring together
we have been brought together
woven within wholeness
weaving a wound
         Mother Me Whole

life birthing more life 1.jpg

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
  the 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…

The Weaver.jpg

THE WEAVER


My beloved
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
and
twisting back in through over again and again.
These invisible threads
   Intersect
Loop then to now
Tie this to that
Thread old to new
Join me to you
Link eye to eye
Bind heart to heart
   Intertwined
The Weaver weaving a web
That which is being woven
   Together
       As One.

Let Go.jpg

LET GO


Dear lover lay you down to rest
a slow death dining
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.
Go-Goodbye-Gone
       Away…
Please Please remember
  Sometimes we must die
to be born
   whole all over again.

State of Return.jpg

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
A thinning of the self
through the self
        to
  The Self
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
       The Way.

Finding Our Way.jpg

FINDING OUR WAY


My dear lets get real
please take my hand
We walk
moving at the speed of Trust
you and I
me and you
she-her-him-they-them
us together
walking into towards through and beyond
the invisible path
remembering every single tiny little step is the way
to finding our way
          HOME.

Woven Together.jpg

WOVEN TOGETHER

God speaks,
dear Lov-er of Love
         Do Not Look Away
my friend please do not look away.
for our many lives have been
   woven together
come in close close criss cross collide
loop twist tie tangle threading
        towards-to-through and beyond.
Been falling…Do you dare fall
   Fallen to Love
Love in Love Loving Love
then stray away long gone lost
to come back in
    Whole
all over again.
Touch some secret language have no words
and
   God speaks…
