Thank Thee

Thank you sun,

Thank you sky,

Thank you earth,

Thank you Mars,

Thank you creator

For all these blessings,

Thank the day,

…. I am in love,

…. I am alive,

…. I am I.

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.

A Mother’s Cry

#yogiexpressions last day favorite pose

#anahatasana today I literally cried while teaching a class and I had poetry in my head.

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. •••
