Beekeeper

Dangerous guardians at the gate
buzzing heralds something unseen
my protectors seal your fate
if you dare enter here unclean.
I did not ask for their work here
I did not call for them to come
and yet I’m glad they found me near
and built their hive in my new home.
The flowers love them, as do I,
branches sing out merrily
rebirth and transformation nigh
honey flowing, from hive in tree.
I hope the bees protect us all
from monsters coming, dark and small.

Gateway

Celebrating the start of a new cycle.

Cytherean Dreams

IMG_20130208_103644_915

Bending but inviting,
the gates of neither
heaven nor hell
but beauty and
discovery, celebrating
death through bounteous life
that grows, burns and re-grows
in the endless cycle
of whispering trees.
They’re calling me,
Walk through,
to find
what I might see
at the top
of that hill, braving
injury and ruin
to climb
if I’m daring enough
to see the other side
of the summit
quiet in the morning fog.

Trust

“Random post” reblog – and I just love that it’s perfect for me today. Of course.

Cytherean Dreams

I see
the rain, the storm
coming down
changing and cleansing
the world around me
creating happy trees
that vibrate
with joy.
They’re getting
what they need
and I have
to trust
that so will I.

Trees

The trees arching
inviting overhead with
graceful columns of
pure life energy
pulled from the
sun and the earth
and made into air
for us to breathe,
unselfish, devoting their lives
to guarding ours.
The least we can do
is hug them
every once in a while
to nourish their
ancient hearts
pouring love out
into the skies.

Bend

If we round the bend
just you and me and
leave California beach behind
travel into leafy wilderness
where seasons change
green summer into red fall
will we be happy then?
Could we live there
knowing the train could come
at any moment
to destroy our peace
with reminders of the lives
left behind?
Or will the leaves enfold us
hiding our home from view
until they die in winter?
Hold tightly through the cold
until spring comes again
in our new found home
beyond the bend.

Rainbow

All shades of one color
melding into beauty.
Carpets of salmon flowers
showering surprise
on the path.
Bursting fall leaves
are actually dying,
transitory beauty arcing, aching.
Warm rays like fingers
to melt
the trees of ice.
Frosted birds swimming through
a frosted icy land.
Ocean or cloud or
both? Blue air and water
coming together.
I bring color
to the cold
and power to the sky,
cosmic yang making love to
the earthly yin. But
there are only so many
pretty sunsets
I can stand.
I’m sorry you fell
from the sky
and I wasn’t there
to catch you.
