Dark Star

I celebrate the Mystery

That dwells within me.

The Goddess, the Muse–

A Dreamer who sees…

Beauty in a moment

Strength in a pause

Depth in my BEing

A dragon with claws.

She’s whimsical, magical

Here and then there.

She definitely has a knack

For flips in mid-air.

Persephone, Diana

Kali-Shakti, Quan Yin.

The fairies, the gnomes

They all are my kin!

I see her in the moonlight

When the owl calls my name.

I hear her in the whisper

Of the nightsong of rain.

Who am I? Who are you?

What’s this world where we dwell?

Dark Star within me,

I am under your spell.

Alchemy of Word

Have you discovered

the ALCHEMY OF WORD?

Turn emotions into phrase–

Get your feelings heard.

Open your heart–

Share what’s inside

Healing can happen

When you’ve nothing to hide.

Tap inner wisdom

Plumb your great depths

The Mystery within us

Knows all the steps

To release our fears

Upgrade into Love

Stiff, stuck emotions

Dark energy and sludge.

Dig deep now. Look up!

It’s just about time–

Put wings on your soul

With words that rhyme.

IMAGINATION

In your mind

Create a sky

Where you can fly

With eagles high.

Create a cave

Where you can swim

With big blue whales

And grey dolphins.

Use your mind

And your heart

To DREAM a world

That’s set apart-

A place for you

To heal and play

Grow new wishes

For brighter days.

Back on Earth

Your dreams will find

Their way to influence

Your waking mind.

Your energy will rise

To match your vision

Impacting your life

And daily decisions.

Soon you’ll move

Closer in TIME

To your soul’s place

And Divine DESIGN.

The energy of this moment

Is soooo DELICIOUS

I want to capture and bottle it

And make chocolate kisses

To eat with the Gods

While we drink of this nectar

Flow in the sweet river

Of tranquil Creator

A 3rd eye explosion

Pan-sensory emotion

Bliss-felt dream-ocean

Of heart-song devotion

Dolphin Love

I spent two months on the Big Island of Hawaii in November and December 2012 and spent the week of 12/21/12 (including the solstice) swimming off the Kona coast with a pod of wild dolphins.  It was the most magical, intense, wonderful, and joyful experience of my life.  Since that week I dream about dolphins regularly, including last night.  I think I am meant to work with them in a healing capacity–taking people to do dolphin-art-yoga retreats, perhaps.  Since, professionally, I am a therapist/healer/artist/yoga instructor and spending time with dolphins naturally opens one’s heart (and thus is healing), I think this is a beautiful idea.  Until I manifest that possibility, however, I am left with a fountain of appreciation flowing from my heart to the dolphins (dolphriends!) that inspires me to write little whimsical poems and create playful art.

Little dophin

In the sea-

Thinking of you

Uplifts me

How you dash

Flip and twirl

Makes me smile

My heart swirl

So much joy

So much love

With you in my life

I am above

The sorrow and fear

The woes of the day

In the o c e a n depths

We splash and play

Thank you for

The gifts you bring

Simply by swimming

And doing your thing
