Queen Bee

I do me

So these two little bees

Who hear and see everything

Won’t sacrifice happiness for duty,

If that business,

In the eyes of the meek

Changes week to week.

Capricious sheep who change

The rules of the game

Depending on what they say‘s on fleek.

So I live free to do me

And hope these two follow,

No Joan of Arc,

But instead be free.

Blaspheme

Perpetual child

She fell from the sky

Sipped from the fountain

Abandoned her lyre,

Severed wings and sold crown

Signed over the deed

To her soul and marked wild.

Crawled on the ground

And walked through the fire,

Eternally bound

To this earth, all the while,

Buying her time

To be found by desire

A lover she could admire.

Big Love

Big Love

Beers and bull dogs

With Boo in the boondocks

Speaking birds and the bees

Between banter of beliefs,

And our babies

They bloom,

Because the love that we bring,

Bellies full from big bowls

Of Stews brewed

With big dreams.

Big talks of big things,

Big hearts and big feats,

Together we bring up

Beautiful blessings

Because Baby,

We both believe,

Beyond words,

In Big Love.

Wildflower

Wild as weeds

Traversing the ground,

Sprouting up vibrant

A hue some like,

Though you pluck a wildflower,

Wishing it to be vased,

Only to find her wither by night,

But let her be and see,

She’ll grow so high,

She’ll shine so bright

She’ll shine like stars.

Why Does Time Fly

Time goes as we move in the flow,

And even with eyes open wide,

My mouth drops low,

When I see how he grows,

Body, mind, heart, and soul,

Like a rollercoaster ride,

Climbing up slow,

And sliding down as if we are flying

With my stomach a flutter

And my head high,

As he asks why?

Why do the stars shine,

And gray clouds cry?

Why are my eyes bright,

Why does the sun light up the sky,

And why do I love you

And it makes me smile why?

Dreams

Dreams

They’ve been coming to me,

Each one from my past,

Testing me stripped of magic,

Showing me what I wouldn’t see,

Face to face with choices I’ve made,

As I walk through the Minotaurs lair,

Trying to find my way back to love.

Awakened,

The magic is in love,

For them, for him, for us,

But ultimately,

For myself.

Shanti

Shanti

Finding peace

As I hang in balance

Between my human needs,

And my soul needs.

If I could,

I’d stay in your arms forever,

And melt into eternity,

But my body,

It asks to move and breathe again and again,

Until my soul is ready to journey back.

I Rebel

You might say I broke some rules along the way,

But whose rules were they,

Yours or mine?

Were they man made, woman made, society made, or human made?

Did I fail to follow tradition,

Abandon custom,

And bow down to duty,

For the sake of what?

Your happiness?

Or was I following my heart all along?

I broke some rules along the way,

But failed to bend to break my own,

And I’ve come to the place I know I belong,

Because I would never break my own.
