Nostalgia

Nostalgia

We stood in the rain

Clinging on for what was and what could have been.

When you left, I could still smell your scent in my palms,

The memory of you so real,

Until I finally had to wash you away.

A Mother’s Cry

A Mother’s Cry

Have you seen a woman cry?

Have you seen a mother cry?

She,

A pillar of strength,

Feels hurt deep enough,

That when she sheds tears,

The earth cries.

Have you seen a woman cry?

Have you seen your mother cry?

She,

The essence of love,

Unleashes all the pain,

She’s been holding

For all kind.

Have you seen a woman cry?

Have you seen your mother cry?

She,

The gentle warmth you crave,

Endures everything

For you and you and you,

Until earth’s water spills over.

Persephone

Persephone

Dig deep into me

As if you’re trying to grab my soul

Caress it in your hands

As you feel me crying out

With pleasure and pain.

Devour me

And be one body, one spirit, one mind.

Feel my heartbeat inside you

In sync with yours

Until we beat as one.

I Dare You

To love profusely,

It is power

pure and magical

Dare to love wholeheartedly.

Unbind from the fear

Strung by layers of hurt

And submit to the experience of

Even pain and loss,

Beauty is fleeting

But that’s what makes it so clear and bright!

Beauty is fleeting

So we hold it while it’s there

Real light

And remember it when it’s gone.

We are the stars

That shine in the night

Shining bright

illuminating skies.

Shining still

Long after we die.

Dahhee Full if Laughter

Dahhee, Full of Laughter

Girl who laughs from the deepest parts of herself.

It’s the jiggles and the wiggles that keep her feeling soooooo fine

Like the warmth of being pressed flesh to flesh in a big ball of love,

Laughing and talking love and plants and cacao,

And moving grooving swaying and humming,

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm

Giggles bubbling up through her throat and just being free to spin around until she falls down laughing.

Dahhee girl who found her way home. •••

Women!

Women!

Beautiful, strong, intelligent, goddesses.

Rise from the earth

The time is now to shift

The pain trapped on earth

And pick up the hurt and the sick.

Hold them

And mother them with love.

Soothe the children,

Wrap the scarred men in your arms,

Hand in hand with all your sisters,

With the power of your mother and grandmother since Gaia, Isis, and lilith bubbling inside you ready to pour out to cool the fire of the sun and alleviate those burning with fear.

The fire you feel is ablaze

With love,

A passion so intense it sparks new life

With Boom!

Rise from the mud and bloom!

It Is time to embrace our feminine power

Diffuse the turbulent chaos daring to explode

Breathe softness into chaos

Until the swell subsides

And we can heal the world with the power of our creative waters

With love

Unconditional love,

With compassion

Absent of judgement,

With truth

And honesty,

Pouring into the earth from where we came,

And ready to fly upwards home

To where we belong

With quiet knowledge encoded in our DNA

From the first woman

That we are here to create shift and balance

So that we can all thrive

In this beautiful paradise

Until we all merge into our whole self

Yin and Yang.

Toy Bear

I remember my yellow teddy bear that had a pocket with a battery operated beating heart. Something about that moment is so clear that I feel that the thing I seek most is that kind of contentment. Being completely satisfied with what I have in the moment. A little bit of that secret pocket to hide my heart but you can still feel it and hear it.

I want to not worry at all about what others think and not ask for any more abundance but be happy in this moment with the things I already have.

I plant the seed of support and love that will continually bring in stability and an abundance of time.
