My Morning Poetry Flow!

December 7, 2005

 

Beginning

 

Wild Blueberry Juice

          begins my day.

I picture wild blueberries,

running like stallions in the wind,

and wonder how they are captured,

when their manes spread so long and thick,

waving deep blue tint through the lighter blue of sky -

Somewhere they are caught and squished

          to an essence

          I sip,

          as anti-oxidants freely rein in oxidents,

          corraling carefully what belongs,

          and kicking out the rest.

 

 

 

Balance

 

I feel zippy this morning,

calmly zippy, like a wild horse

kicking up his heels slowly,  

carefully,

a flamenco dance perhaps,

calypso,

dancing on the hill,

as the sun comes up,

welcoming,

the slide of the moon

to the side -

Two arms balance

day and night and tide -

 

 

          Caw Caw

Crows fly in twos today
         up in the morning sky -
                 darts
        
practicing to bull’s eye
                 the sun
           
with its bright-pink rise

 

 

          Content

 
hmmmm - no-mind
how long can it last
this place of contentment
like the breast of the swan
as it glides on the glass
of the lake
mirroring the trees
and the sun

 

 

          Om

 
focus the chemo mind
so expanded out into seas
and blinds
not wanting to be here
wanting more to sit cleared,
for take-off
in a sky
unbuttoned,
no buttons,
the shirt removed,
the body gone,
only,
stepping
into
softly
where
no
cotton
has gone,
no cotton,
fleece,
or wool.
The steps are before
plant and animal,
the word -
In the beginning was the word -
not here in chemo world - om -
om steps to the right
on the keyboard from in -
to the right -
the intuitive side -
begin -

 

 

          Begin

 

I hold mind on a line
and fly like a kite
in a sky I align.
The borders are mine
to define
as I bridge what ties
and unties
the puppetry
of all our lines.
They strand
from hands and thighs
woven strongly,
above our heads
by our own eyes,
ideas,
and glides.  
Make your world!
Fly your kite!
Reach down for life.
Lift up to wave
your strings,
and tickle mine.
Laughter glues me to you.
Let’s dance in two’s, and three’s, and alls,
weaving all we be - to a beat
that rocks the stars,
in a pulse,  met within.
Feel the neurons rock,
the glial and neural cells increase,
and the synapses reach
in the tangled embrace of love.
Love, love - what else can all this exuberance
and connection be, but love?
Look round!  Can you believe it?
Everywhere, everything, dancing in love.
Yesterday, I holiday shopped,
and ended up dancing with the women in the store,
foot forward, side, and back; It’s as easy as that.
Bend your knees in this world we live in,
and bounce mightily on the laps and legs of Love. 
Abundance surrounds us.  Abound in the sweet tooth of touch,
within and without.


Sing and dance love, now and now, and now!!
Up and down, full Life, Full Love!
