will find some poetry, stories and pearls of wisdom that I have either been sent
to me by wonderful wise friends or I have been fortunate enough to stumble
across. Please note that the pieces you will read here are straight from
the authors/authoresses hearts and it takes great strength to allow others a
look (even for a brief moment) inside their souls. so without further
to this rain.
only road through the canyon is closed
a full moon night
you can't see past the window.
say, I'm not going out there,
what do you mean?
white field of hail that was a road?
blanket of mud that used to be a lake?
around the world a Far Eastern sun
against us. The odds against becoming
your imagination. A lake,
instance, is not a road.
is there a road?
is no natural order.
surface is soft and gives way
your touch. Sleep's magic
the ruins in its spiral notebook,
if something besides language
save us, as if oceans
swallowed the rest.
cold rain tonight
blankets are not enough,
darkness drowns the moon.
not think, in your blindness
because this full moon burns black
can escape it.
not think that stars will fail
sear the sky
the rain that never blows
your bedroom window, blows hard.
the house fall?
perhaps it will.
chaos loves, with her own fierce beauty,
has been with us from the beginning
this and every other night
we first sought her,
a river of crows
the reedy lake
the edge of the canyon
you find health and happiness and something real in the coming months---
have a lot to look forward to - it is time to start a romance with the
you have been ignoring but cares about you deeply and is most
is it?? go look in the mirror!!!!
walk into the darkness gladly, embracing it as a friend,
a tree in a windstorm still standing, not breaking because I will bend
listen to the silence around me, I feel the touch of the night,
doubting my love who goes boldly, seeking only the strong and the right
and always I love thee, forever my heart will you own,
I stand in the shadows unfearful, ever beloved and never alone.
watch as you walk from the darkness, your eyes gleaming with love and with lust
go to you arms more than willing, as I give you my love and my trust.
shadow lover is stronger, than any mere mortal could be,
he ever is there just to hold me, in his shadow filled home by the sea
stand in the arms of my lover, though alone I seem in your eyes,
my lover is stronger than any, and tells me no stories or lies.
me in spirit are sisters, who feel bout our lover as I,
range far apart in our tempers, some fearful, some bold and some shy.
alike do our hearts beat in rhythm, and our lover her smiles to see,
sister, though different in viewing, our hearts beat as one thee and me.
tell me your stories of weddings, and happily ever after romance,
I sleep in the arms of my sisters and Love, ever peaceful in Shadows we dance.
