Soul’s Troll

The spiral path

To your soul

Is guarded by

A lonely troll.

He endeavors to stop

All who enter–

Who try to grow

And find their center.

It’s not his fault.

He has forgotten

His real, true purpose

Is to show you the button

The button to press

To open the chamber

That passageway to

Love’s container.

When you’ve mastered

The keys to life’s game

You are ready to pass

Into this flame:

The center of the heart,

The gateway to GOD…

Home is where it leads;

The troll is a fraud.

So, know that he’s there,

Nod when he tries

To keep out what simply

must pass on by.

Sooooo…..

In you are going,

In you must go.

Your destiny awaits you–

At the end of the rainbow.

Ahh Musement

I really think it’s true

That finding the Muse

Unlocks a room

Where magic brews.

 

Once she’s free–

Like a genie from a bottle–

Dreams rush in

And reality is mottled.

 

Whatcha gonna do

Now that she’s out?

The Muse will have her way,

About that, no doubt.

 

Get ready. Take your seat.

This rocket’s gonna fly

Across 8 dimensions

Into your third eye.

 

The Muse, she has a gift,

A present for you…

Let her in your life now; 

Enchantment will ensue.

Shown in the photo is a piece of art I made inspired by the Muse.  She actually came to me in a dream this month (May 2016) (a nighttime, sleep dream)–looking just like this.  The scene included red velvet curtains, a bright green striped backdrop, and a really cute clown muse dressed as she is here and holding a polka-dotted box of RAINBOWS.  I ended up waking up after the dream, probably because it was so pleasant and fun.  I almost immediately set out to make a piece of art inspired by the vision.  I started with this bead piece because I love beading, but I hope to follow it with a painting.  Like the poem (which I wrote three years before I had the dream) says, she indeed does have a gift!!  Hello Muse! And thank you!!

Shambhala

There is a place

Up in the sky

Where a dragon lives

And angels fly.

 

It’s in this land

That I find my Muse.

I recognize her

By the sparkley shoes.

 

She waits for me

To open my mind

And attune my heart

To the great Divine.

 

When I am ready

I can journey there

To the Golden Palace

Above the dragon’s lair.

 

This Wild Muse spirit,

She comes to me:

Inspires my thoughts,

And lets me see…

 

See  another world

Just out of sight–

The world of dreams

In the dark of night.

 

With her gift of Light

I am complete.

The eternal Beloved

I soon shall meet.

 

When I discover

That Beloved is me,

At very long last

I will be Free.

Soggy Dreams

This is a funny little poem I wrote tonight, actually for my other blog (that’s going to be a narrative account of my past 15 months on sabbatical, looking for my next home).  I thought I’d post it over here, too.  Gives a little added texture to my gypsy’s journey…

 

There’s some kind of mysterious

Recipe I’m seeking…

For a magical home

In a dream I’m dreaming….

*

Nature and people

And beauty and climate.

Work prospects, culture,

Politics, excitement.

*

There are so many elements

I’m trying to consider–

When planning for home

In Hither or Thither…

*

I no longer believe

That perfection exists.

Everywhere has compromise;

Reality persists.

*

I’m really not sure

Which conditions I’ll choose,

But I must find home soon…

I can sure feel the fuse

*

Lit in my heart,

Burning through my body…

“Make a choice now,” it says,

Or your dreams will get soggy.

 

 

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.

Ode to a Star

I love you stars.

You are a part of my day.

Inside my body

You twinkle and play.

Outside at night

You shine so bright.

I smile at the sky

And watch you pass by.

Slowly you move

Or I guess I do, too.

I ponder the Mystery

When I look at you.

Thank you for gracing

My life with your shine.

You inspire my joy

When love’s hard to find.

There’s always a star

Up high and in me.

As long as I chase it

I always feel free.
