Promised Land

I miss the joy of learning

the joy of renewal

the joy of ancient words

made new again with

new life, new songs

connections to the past fraying

I drift, adrift, driftless


by the loss of you

of what you represented

of the holiness in myself

Time to Dream

Slip into a state of the other
where sunshine flows through
your silken hair and sky-bound prisms
mirror the spectrum of colors caught
in your iridescent eyes and
you speak softly of my beauty
of our power to pull forth
from our fertile soil new life
a far off dream, a so close fear
that you might love me
that you still dream of me
that you long to worship me
slip between worlds into my temple
and find your true self.

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.

Wishing for something,
there’s no guarantee,
who will appear
to help set me free.
The wishing is tiring
and all I want to be
is with you, sitting there
on the bench next to me.
One miracle manifest
made flesh and blood.
My inner dream come true
heart burst in a flood.
A musician, a thinker,
a father, a friend.
Manifest and then vanished
woke up at dream’s end.
So where do I go
after dreaming, to be
held in some new arms.
I don’t know. Is that me?
Can I overcome
my heart’s longing and see
that I have a chance
to still dance merrily?

This one helps me remember who I am.

Cytherean Dreams

You were never married,
the smiling serene rabbi said
to me. No need for a divorce
in our faith, because
he had no standing
to marry you at all
and so, in our eyes, it
didn’t really happen.
And I felt so light and free
and bouncing joyful at
this news, and was surprised
at how little I was surprised.
Because by then
I had seen a bit
a glimpse
of what consecration means
of the process and binding
the multiple ceremonies
tying families together
as a couple joins hearts
to build a home
a foundation for the community
not an island, but an oasis
a blessing to all.
I was never consecrated
had never given myself
at that deepest level
and so, not truly wed.
Not yet.

Reposting, one year later.

Cytherean Dreams

Even with hundreds of faces
of people in the room
you always shone brighter
the sun rising in
your eyes, to me.
It almost didn’t matter
that I had a purpose
to being there
beyond you, beyond learning.
I was there to build
connections and bridges,
to lead a lost woman
to her place in her home,
to meet the giants
my future teachers and guides,
all of that was true.
But it’s also true
that you, sitting there,
shone bright
a blazing beacon
casting aside all doubt
that there could ever be
anyone else
in my sight.

Daily Prompt: Free

Daily Prompt: Morphing


I free you.
When I love you, and
transmute the universal light
from heaven down
through energy spirals swirling
through the core of me
the heart and soul
and depths of me
and it flows out
through my hands
my third eye, my sacred
temple and into you
in rainbows bursting
born of ecstasy
and healing, cleansing
rebirth of you, from me,
I free you.
Free is love and tantric fire
and compassion and nurturing,
a shining silver connection.
I free you,
so you can be
