But how do I tell you about the things I've seen?
From the most haunting and daunting
To the very fabric of dreams
I've experienced love beyond measure
Traveled the world to hold it in my hands
I lost myself seeking that foreign treasure
and returned home a different man
Moonlit dinners on Italian cobblestone streets
Ludovico Einaudi providing the symphony
I've climbed mountains in The Alps
Drank straight from the snow melt streams
I witnessed the Black Wolf of Val Duron
and kissed a Goddess on those mountain peaks
I've stood shoulder to shoulder
with ancient warriors carved in stone
I looked them directly in the eyes
and felt an honest worthiness in my bones
I've laid on the beaches of paradise
been cleansed by the waters of the Aegean Sea
Slovenia, Austria, Greece and Italy
I can no longer recall who I used to be
Synagogues, churches, temples and sacred places
but all I seem to remember is how beautiful her face is
Like a collision of galaxies
Moving far too fast to ever coexist
We changed each other's world
and kept moving through the eclipse
From the Earth that inward pulls
Like the song of the last wild wolves
For the optimal experience - Play Ludovico Einaudi's "Experience" while reading at a slower pace.
we pretend not to be
Confiding in technology
Hiding in comforts
Spirits lying dormant
We ache to belong
Never knowing how wrong
that we're all composed
of the same universal song
From the Earth that inward pulls
Like the song of the last wild wolves.
Like all great love stories
shadows riddled with sadness
lay in balance
in the cracks of a rock
shatters it to pieces
Chaos to order to disorder
unbreakable universal law
the entirety of existence-
and that does not exclude
So when stars
Billions of years pass
and the atoms
into two human beings
who are deeply
That is the pinnacle
that can possibly exist
There can be nothing greater
Nothing of more substance
and so begins
It simply cannot last
has taught you both
you will ever need to know
and it is time
the next reincarnation
That love engrained
is now forever
a part of you
I try to write
and nothing but words come out.
I hate those nights.
There can be no growth carrying the perception that your life is a solid state of being. You are fluid. Time is fluid. Emotions are fluid. Respect the river. And dive in. The moments don't linger, though the hunger is real- and you cannot define yourself by the routines you currently tread. One different decision. One change of direction. With every step another decision is made. Who am I becoming? With every breath the nature of the experiences of our lives unfold. Exercise your inherited powers of evolution. Left foot, right foot. Work. Sleep. "But this is how I've always done it." Not anymore. It is time for me to go this way now. Because it is time for me to grow. Nothing is certain, nor will it ever be. Some things just feel right. Like a gravitational pull towards the light. Each potential path we could walk is promised to be overflowing with new experiences, new friendships, new hardships and new self discoveries. Wherever it may come to lead- new happiness, new sadness and new love that you never knew could exist- will be born. A new version of ourselves will emerge. Do not waste away lying dormant, like oceans drained bone-dry by emotionless routines. Become change. Gravitate towards love and towards passion. Like the rapids of a river evolving.
Intentional directional frequency,
dancing in multidimensional secrecy.
I follow this ancient Red Road
because it calls to me ceaselessly.
It humbles me,
more than can conceivably be.
It empowers me,
primitively and peacefully.
Graciously, like the moon pulls the sea
in this spiral galaxy of spirituality.
Deep rooted and day dreaming
Through the crow's eyes
I see through the disguise
as this day fades into evening.
Stand up to make a difference
Enchanted by the blood
of my ancestors resistance.
I pay homage as I gain
thankful for the knowledge
flowing freely through my veins
I hold the deepest respect
for this land I will protect
I am Haudenosaunee
born wild and free
and this way I shall remain.
