Star Fliers
K Mae Jun 2020
I went while dark to see what stars might shine to me
but fireflies came close enchantingly
my vision needs be here not there
to see these fairy flitters, star fliers flashing green
pulsing out of time and space
to birth a startling burst of joy
a laugh so pure and fragile
an exhale, only, to begin
again to live in awe

Snake Goddess
K Mae Mar 2019
Desert thirsts for you, for me
embodied living energy
above and underground
go find the water, find it deep
we think of death but only sleep
illusions losing ground
undulations resonate
a call to follow now

As I am mine
K Mae Mar 2019
Pulled to kneeling
By assaults of worry.
I surrender.
Receive this blessing.
You are the power for yourself.
As I am mine.

Faith beyond knowing

directional lines now waver
melding with uncertainty
biding time, abiding self
in bog darkened depths
warily inviting what shall emerge

Fear is no Wisdom Path
K Mae Mar 2019
Inevitable movement
follows inscrutable pathways
within boundless unknown.
Admit any possibility with courage.
Of this I am sure :
Fear is no Wisdom path.

crested crag-spines rising
bones fierce of ancient dragons
calling out to Naga

Bloom  feminine essence, Flow !
Feed my ancient undulations

wearied now to hills
sighing down with last exhaled
memory of color
washed, washed,
baked by endless sun

impossible angles
K Mae Jan 2017
these mountains

bare bones rising
sharp subtle silent
stratified waves of color
crumble into gifts I can hold

your legs
strong, furred, angled against mine

your mountainness
impossibly I am held

at desert edge, what sound
K Mae Jan 2017
owl call gliding over all
coyotes feeding yips and howls
all this expressed now I can sleep
but for jangling metal flagpole
careless winds that raise
my wariness of flags

You are
evolving mystery
exquisite vexing partner
all potential

No matter the illusion

hands deftly slicing air
with voice a hearty volume
entranced by this world

how calm my sphere would be

the chosen path
K Mae Nov 2015
intending Walkabout
with personal creations all acrumble as we move
our long held sacred stories  shown untrue
but let us go
the dreaming muscle will sustain
beauty consciousness entrain
unknown need not submit to fears
the demons not to rule
with baggage left behind us
we can swing a freedom dance
lessons need not bear a whip
we may just ride creatorship
trust love to rise above the mask
and find we're worthy of no task
and suffering just may not after all
*be the chosen path

in stasis
K Mae Nov 2015
much I would say to you
but lacking courage I am sure
you will not  hear
so we remain apart
presumed safe
in stasis

but later
K Mae Nov 2015
and at night
when we might take
or give comfort
we think instead of time and the morrow
feeling desire,  I know I am alive
but later, perhaps later

Beloved, go to sleep.
K Mae Aug 2015
I come close, craving and cradling
when you sleep
half awake, your words sweet, edges blurred

    But awake  
your voice so loud
shakes my world
arms jabbing all akimbo
building what you fear
your words cannot transmit.

Beloved, go to sleep.

so many words
yet not enough
to breathe with scented wind
see colors and the space defined
in fractal symmetry
our footfalls on the path
this mind is full of pulsing me
with words push your way in
I flood and overflow
don't stop this
spilling where I am

death upon us
K Mae Aug 2015
the fact of his leaving
not understood, but surely no mistake
one more eddy in the sad river
one brother less

journey unsolved

as only I

words and color swirls and stains

who the lover
K Mae Jun 2015
who is it now who loves me
who changes tune for every feast
of every new curve learned
who echoes deeply as I howl
responds to shimmies and the luster
sliding all along the rim
I like to think it's all of from him
but peering over edges I can see
who shines a light in darkness
It Is Me

swore not
K Mae May 2015
swore not to do this dance again
the rhythm matters more than words
we cannot catch don't even try
we're falling off the stage
the finches flew
the cat is fat
there's hunger before dawn
the rocky trail both wet and dry
just follow hollow laugh and cry

He says
I believe
I create
though phrases elude
just inhale this moment's aroma so fleeting
now detoured to no known path
dance then in freefall
the grounding unseen

knowing nothing
K Mae Nov 2014
as you create a blazing path
  and offer all you are
       for all that is rejoicing         
          how precious life is

knowing nothing I see you
       living as you must 
          raw and true
        volcanic heart awareness            
      embracing and embraced
                 by unknown

that bruised place
K Mae Nov 2014
quite small, really
but open to depths
never closed since first shock
awareness being here
with no encoded response
from flesh dusted wild pulse
expressing just what is
open    as one   as all    is one
already manifest
uniquely not comfortable  
welcome  not  known
nowhere  to  hide  being  now
I would love to share this with you with my voice as balm and rhythm

mother line
K Mae Oct 2014
gone so long
fine memories line
your beauty face adored
paltry company by now
the made doll with her tight red smile
no secrets will divulge
pretty blue eyes held so wide
by violent stitches black
no blinking now and no excuse
the truth is all revealed
as the lie was all reviled
but once it was a simple sharing
blood along the line
mother strength to daughter
from she to me to mine
musing with the doll made by grandmother for her daughter....

father shine
K Mae Oct 2014
father shined his shoes
we ironed handkerchiefs
by the dozen shirt collars
underwear so white and loose
child noise song not allowed
we did not know he missed being
artist bad boy free
sole beloved of his woman
now mothering too many
his own left too soon
the boy to hurt forever
to pass that truth along
as best he could

full belly hiding
K Mae Oct 2014
full belly hiding
or belt it out the danger

grateful for the cost

laughing mirror
K Mae Oct 2014
oh yes I am come to see me
locking on
engaged recognition
tasting this crazed particularity
and give it up for laughter
deep from bellies
catching breath as if we can
look again and laugh from deeper
no explanation
we are mirrors on this wavelength
who know at last it is pointless to judge
my friend, who also cuts her hair at midnight, steps out of her car to greet me....

Blazon Cat
K Mae Jul 2014
fur sheen black as skin is pink
        eyes unnatural green glow
who rubs against our legs and stays
     tail wrapped in ownership around
intelligence honed by games razor sharp
whose lungs fill with fluid now like an old smoking man
               and must be given drugs
         and must be slept with
      for he must not die ignored
                             my heart aches with his
Blazon, a form of poetry from french culture, grown from the list
Blazon, a structure for stream of consciousness

I ask
K Mae Jul 2014
in a moment of safety
securely unknown
I ask
what value the scarring hard earned
and when I surrender
what harm that I've lost my edge
since I know nothing
what of the wisdom
I blindly vow to share
timely or timeless
a breath of the essence
nourishing fragrance of care
