Desirous Delusions

A moonsong
Sprung to life
Driftless worries
Love and strife

Unleaded potential
Awakens just there
Flaying out justice
Choking out prayer

Seeded but lost
Unbound from the world
One foot on another
Two weeds to be twirled

Venomous longing
Cataclysms ring
If you can’t take the bite
Don’t yearn for the sting.

Parallax

Searching sails
In the night
I branch out towards
This tiny light
It seems so small
It might implode
And maybe if
I reach its node
The knowledge of
The world itself
Will bless us with
A timeless breath
A sigh so strange
We can’t foresee
This breath is real

This breath is me.

Solstice

Red rain rising
Prisms in the sun
Bowing forward gently,
Ready for the run

A distance unimaginable
A length of life to come
To breathe this essence deeply
Reminds us where we’re from

Fountains pure and golden
Flows of time and truth
Our home is ever present;
The house is always You.

Happy Solstice friends ❤
May you feel the endless potentialities of life at your fingertips – golden extensions of sunlight that they are.

Circuitous

Destroyers, keepers
Kingdoms fall

We provide the tithe
Until we crawl

To cracks and crevasses
Deep and down

‘til brighter times
We suffer and drown

We assign and think
All things must collude

When on our knees
We should heed solitude

To wake from mirrors
Both past and present

But we stay and lay
And repeat, “never said it.”

Dismantled // Anointed

Wispy grey willows
Hang down from the stars

Ready to reclaim what
Once was now ours

Reaching and grasping
Down to our Earth

Whispering shadows
Of darkness and mirth

Enact into truth
Pushed out into light

We feel that something
Just isn’t quite right

Blessed to our people
We shake these lies down

And no longer perch
Upon Power’s great crown.

 

Landing of Choice

Warpaint on ruins and
Sliding the scales

This is the reason
We’re riding the rails

We skim and we poke
That which we see

And we’ll wither and soak
Right into the sea

That is the path we can
Choose or reject

I just wish we could know this
Before hitting ‘Eject’

 

 

Zenith

Seeing stones and sills go by
I see these things and start to cry

So many notes are gone and missed
I reach to feel them, shores to kiss

I greet You and I rise up tall
I want to search the Garden’s sprawl

To wander freely, touch what’s true
To love as greatly as You do.
