i sit in the bathtub
lit candle wicks
allowing tears to flow
feeling the comforting
cleansing of the water
wash over me gently
as i connect to my breath
the new moon
allows for manifestations
and new beginnings
so, i grab pen and paper
and jot down:
when i see myself in the mirror
i want to look deep within
and see the divine being i am
someone i wish not to be
i wish to cultivate
giving myself the space
to slow down and reconnect
while loving myself tenderly
for all that i am
i wish to spread
this love of self
unto others in my life
and to the collective
beings on the planet
in hopes that they too
will see the beauty
that is already within them
thanking the four elements:
earth, air, fire and water
for their guidance
i step out of the bathtub
blow out the candles
dry myself off and
step out of the sacred space
releasing my intentions
into the wild.
I'm not too different from
The moon and its phases
There are nights when
I don't want to do much
But stay darkened and unseen
Nights when I hang
With just a sliver of hope
And the clouds shift around me
Until I am half light, half darkness
A conflicted entity
And also nights of full splendor
Stirring musings in every dreamer
Would you still search for it in your night sky
A painted canvas similar to mine
With your heart unchanging
No matter the phase of the moon that evening
Would you continue to be the sun to its moon
Forever burning, knowing I will always revolve around you
This new moon
Different than the others.
Unleashing the wanderer
Looking for independence.
Yet, looking for someone
Who like me,
Has an enormous urge
To travel far and wide.
Curiosity for new cultures
And new experiences.
Taking me out
Of my comfort zone.
Expanding the relationships
I already enjoy.
And creating these experiences
That fall outside the box.
Love was a new moon
Darkness snarling blindly
Eternal life curse
new moon tonight
please hear my wishes
may my intentions fluorish
new moon tonight
i seal my wishes
may what is mine nourish
From this part of the world, it is the time of the month. It’s time to start everything again. New chance, new hope, the beginning.
Footsteps echoing the jungle's mud;
Jumping and climbing in midnight's twilight
The creature longed for vermilion blood;
But all it found was a fanged sprite
The new moon descends upon the dark;
The white wolf sprints and splits the night
It stops to run and starts to bark;
To a yellow-eyed that breaks the light
The two fairy tales come to life;
Growling under celestial eclipse
Will either of them manage to survive;
To a century old apocalypse
The trees fall down, rivers run red;
The fight is fierce, it breaks the dawn
So it ends with a bloodshed;
As finally the two has long been gone
Across town, a train whistle sounds
and I drift away again.
Early morning sleep,
healing a delicate heart.
Several states over, my best friend
begins her day, so much
The challenge in this season
is to find the fullness
The fullness of emptiness is a concept in the Vedic wisdom of life....

in the electric synaptic light show club
Jackhammer legs quake the place
as everyone hums to the rhythms of their synchronized eyelids
and lungs pumping out golden dolphin breath.
Together copacetic drinks are raised and clinked
echoing like a hummingbird's wings shimmering in the afternoon sun,
Great Spirit, the bartender serves up a round on the house
of midnight snow owl whisky
for those ruminating Rumi and Hafiz's poetry,
the ones already beaming crystal quartz incandescence
from their heart and minds being present in the swaying
space that is the sacred spiral grouse dance.
Some peeps puff tree in the maui wowie mahogany lounge,
the prairie dog smoke carves the air
as these folks reflect and stare at their streams of consciousness
like a blue heron waiting for that third eye fish
The mirrors reveal our inner higher self children
of the moonrise kingdom building the iridescent
bridge to the rainbow road.
When when it's last call
we shall tiptoe home like drunken mice
stumbling up the melting sphere clock
to rest upside down opossum comfortably
giggling giggling thunderous heyoka whispers
into each other's shoulders
until the aquarian dawn.
When I want to be loved by somebody,
deep down inside of me,
myself wants to be loved by me.
Not the outside,
I find love inside of myself.
