winter solstice

Winter Solstice has arrived
on timid tender feet
Today
Wednesday, December 21, 2016 at 2:44 am PST.
 
Find your still deep silent spot of being
Let it anchor you for the new year

Today is the day
In fact the next three days
the sun stands still
in the shifting and changing
 
Be with that stillness.
 
Come into the quiet place
Rest in the darkness
Surrender to the knowing
you are
at your very core
 
love.

not just the ordinary
blah blah
but the flash of yes
that lights up your spine
and goes forth raw and real
 
the words that don’t give a crop
what others might think
that care deeply for tender and broken parts
that heals and holds the knowing
 
life has brought
the perfect storm of you
 
lightening
 
let your words pour forth

blue

you feel fear roarIMG_7853
full and fierce and fragile
wilt and wobble
wisps and whispers
so compelling devouring
run fight hide all
 
out beyond those ragged edges
the wide open sky blue
endless calling calling
stretching into bigness beyond
you are
yes you are that too
breathe that alive
 
now.
 
go back
hold that fear
cradle it in your hands
love it
rock it gently
with all the big sky you are.

water be water

the day winds
like a river by
light and darknessScreenshot 2016-09-05 12.00.43
shadows and sun
 
the hours pass
into roar and huff,
buzz and sweetness
 
hello day brimming over
fortune and folly
foolery and fluff
 
the river
it rolls by
voracious and vixen
soft and subtle
all
 
let the water be water my friend
let it wind you down stream
inevitable as gravity is
to the god of your choosing.
 
 

freedom

freedom is a word
that flow easily off our lips.
we crave it deep inside
and when someone says no,
something inside growls.
 
that wild wolf inside
she knowsScreenshot 2016-07-04 07.29.26
she knows what freedom is
every step is her power
every motion arises from that wild place.
 
In this ordered world
of rectangles and edges
let us not forget
that wild one
so much deeper in our cellular memory
than traffic lights cell phones memos.
 
let us not forget
that wild one that we are
give her space to roam,
a chance to howl
 
this day of freedom.

if I could be one thing
let me be happy to be here
no matter the circumstanceScreenshot 2016-05-18 12.39.14
no matter the stories I tell myself.
 
if I could accomplish one task
let it be
to smile and breathe into
this moment
and feel fully alive…
 
with the gratitude of one
who knows
how precious this moment is.
 
And then to remember
again.
and again
and again
till it becomes
more of who I am
than all the distractions and stories
inside and out
swirling
 
Screenshot 2016-05-18 12.39.14Let me swirl into
now.
here
alive.
I am.
 
the miracle.
the blessing.
 
 
 

relentless

over and over
waves crash to the shore.Screenshot 2016-05-16 07.33.43
 
relentlessly
the waters
kiss the dry sands
without ceasing.
 
so each breath
in each moment
kisses your dry soul alive
again again.
 
Let it in.
feel the water of life
relentless
as it washes over every bit
of your human harried hurry.
 
let it release all the lies
let it take you back
to you.
to the pure light
to the love you are.
 
over and over
let the waves kiss
your dry sands alive
without ceasing;
til all that remains
is love.
 

allow the awe

Stop.Screenshot 2016-05-04 11.31.09
Empty
the mind
the garbage
the judgements
the to do lists
the ‘ought to’s’
stop
the endless chase
finish
the sentence
the dishes
the task at hand
the breath.
 
sit in that emptiness
and be with your
beautiful breathing body
and allow the awe to rush in.

yes

resting into a smile
of a Saturday morning stillness.big moon
fiddles and gardens and yes
i am called to the simple yes
 
yes to the next step
that full body yes.
yes to the sun
yes to the song, the garden
the farmers market
to the inspiration
the next yes.
 
(and no to everything else)
 
Make room for the yeses
make room for the yeses
