Forgiving

my heart, a black stone 

I forgave myself tonight

since I’m all that’s here

Shana, No Y

When I feel lost, spiraling down
spinning madly like a camera
dropped from a 10,000 foot precipice
I can hold on to this –

I am Shana, no Y.

Know why? It’s the name
my mother whispered in my ear
a cooing sound to tell me
I’m more beautiful to her
than the starlight streaming
into our beds, that first night
of life, in her arms.

I am Shana, no Y.

Shana, or Sarai, or Sarah, after
the first mother of the Jewish people.
I am a mother, first, even if
later than most. Protecting
my young, my people,
matriarch of my world.

I am Shana, no Y.

I am what I am,
In God’s image, female spirit
embodied in the most female of forms
exaggerated breasts and hips and
round backside arching, aching
you embrace me because you, male,
can’t resist melding into me.

I am Shana, no Y.

And still evolving, perfect in
every misshapen moment
every seeming stumble
every award and ascent.
Who am I? No other answer
but this –

I am Shana, no Y.

Toothpaste and Tobacco

In the dark, lying face-to-face
the most intimate moment
of vulnerability, of openness, and
I smell, I taste the faint
hint of toothpaste, minty memory
hovering over the merest whiff
of tobacco, the remnant of your last
solitary walk outside for the night.
I drink them in, my bedtime aperitif,
dizzy and falling into your lingering mouth.

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.

Transitions

You are your own goddess…

Cytherean Dreams

Death and re-birth
severed connections
lead to new searches
growth in the most powerful
direction, straight up,
and I take my place
in the pantheon.
The healer goddess
bringing strength and joy
and clarity and connection
through Love.

The Warmth of You

That spot, hidden

under your jaw, where

I lay my head down

and just breathe in

the warmth of you,

that’s what I’ll think of

when I’m alone at night.

Your warmth spreading

through me, through my first

up into my seventh, a rainbow

of chakral energy sparked

into vibrant life from

you melding with me.

That’s how I’ll stay warm,

my love and light, when

I’m all alone, in

autumn’s night.
