Ancient Mother

2015-01-14 14.19.03

Ancient mother lives within,
Spinning up the tales of our soul,
Planting the seeds of future ideations,
Harboring the boats that sail on salty tears
Cried for past generations and future warriors

Laboring for love’s last breath on our lips,
She bears the fruit of victory over death,
Her last breath given to save us from ourselves,
Only to rise again from the ashes we created,
Strengthening the warrior inside

Despite the fear,
Despite the rage,
She frees us from our cage of self-imposition
And our bondage with the broken ties of past regrets

This love she holds is boundless,
Always available to mend our tender hearts
And set the broken pieces to sail
On the sea of her open, endless heart

Sit Quietly, Let Go

man meditates on the lake

Sit,
sit quietly and allow yourself
to take up residence in your own skin
let the lighted sage clear away
all the congestion of a life
filled too full,
played down to the wire,
breathe in the sacred smoke
breathe out the swirling negativity
that fills each cell,
allow only peace and calm to remain,
allow the warm candlelight
to take you adrift
into the ocean of your being,
your spirit, your essence, the captain
on your journey into the higher voyage of the soul.

Let go,
let go and float,
bodiless and mindless
floating on the waves of being
until you sense the connection,
the reconnection,
to all that you are,
all that you were,
all that you ever will be.

Sit quietly,
let go,
float in the ocean of your being

Inside

Meditating Buddha

When words elude you
go inside
find that space
where love writes the lyrics
where the breath hums the melody
the soothing, healing melody
of the soul

Go inside,
find the place
where you reside,
where serenity is sacred
and your wisdom is revered,
where all hurts are understood
and the dear one cradles you in her arms
whenever you need a place to rest

Go inside,
find your heart’s desires
all there
all wrapped in love
all for you,
inside
