Night Two

Half of me
want you to stumble
in whatever condition
through the door
just so I know
you’re alive.

Half of me
wants to never see
you again in that state
and hopes you stay
far away because
you’re dead

Inside, I mean.
Your spirit has already
died, and all I can do now
is pray for a miracle
for a phoenix
for rebirth.

Praise

Blessed be and amen to that.

Cytherean Dreams

I praise You

for the story. For

the characters appearing

and diverting the plot

into new and exciting

delicious and enticing

dimensions.

I praise You

for the setting. For

the beauty of

a skyscraper sunset

over trees and houses

for the full moon

rising gracefully,

for serenity.

I praise You

for the context. For

the history, layers

of time unpeeling

through study and

memory and recognition

my soul touching theirs

and knowing, we’ve

touched before.

I praise You

for my heartbeat. For

the chakra energy swirling

animating every move

spirit dancing, or crying,

or exploding in ecstasy

as we lay entwined

after finding our heartbeats

merged into a single

syncopated rhythm.

I praise You

for my world, my life, my purpose.

And hope You

praise me, just for trying, every day.

Work in Progress

I will take your hand, my love,
in front of all our kin.
I will walk to you, my love,
white silk upon my skin.
I will give to you, my love,
my soul, my tender heart.
Intertwined with you, my love,
a shining, bright new start.

And when we stand in front, my love,
the rabbi will read there
The words I write to you, my love,
tell all my sincere prayer.
What words that he will say, my love,
I really just don’t know.
This work in progress still, my love,
the poem just won’t flow.

What do I love about you so?
You love me, whether words or no.

Home

There’s no place like home.

Cytherean Dreams

The air smells musty and familiar
as I walk through the doors and
into myself.
I didn’t know I would find
me here.
But once found, cannot be left behind.
This girl, this woman,
who gazes upward and feels blessed
finding home.

Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellowstone Park, Wyoming

I) A magic eye
outpouring of earth
and sand and life
to create rainbows in the dirt.
Do you see it now?
How the whole world is built
to evoke the rainbow
in your soul?

II) Thank you, Shaman,
for sharing your knowledge with me.
You pointed me on the path
and reminded me who I am.
I needed to remember
how to see the rainbows again
and you told me
where to look. Inside myself.

III) You make the rainbows dance
to light my way
point me in the right direction
with the promise, all the while,
that You will never
forsake us again.
We see it, clearly,
in the transient luminescent sky
and the permanent scorching earth.

Thankful

From last Thanksgiving, but I’m thankful still.

Cytherean Dreams

On this day,
I’m thankful for my children
growing faster now
too fast, and
I want to stop time
with them small
but I’m so proud
of the strong, gracious,
inquisitive and empathetic
young women
they’re becoming.

On this day,
I’m thankful for my parents
all four of them
who’ve guided me
and tried their best
to impart their wisdom and love
even as they struggle
through through their own
challenges and triumphs.

On this day,
I’m thankful for the women
who support me and listen
and navigate through the world
on their own paths
but always happy to travel
with me and cheer me on.

On this day,
I’m thankful for the men
who’ve loved me and held me
given me the secure knowledge
of my worth and
the warmth of knowing
they will be there,
if I fall.

On this day,
I’m thankful most of all
for my…
