- I attune to the power of words, how they are used, spoken, and written. Some things I refuse to write about, because therein is a painful memory, or a sweet so much that a tear falls yet again. The very process of writing to me is to possess. To embrace. To touch. And the fact of it - the writing itself - makes it all the more indelible, so concentrated upon, and the piece of spirit that emerges was the point of doing the piece in the first place, but you did not know that when you began.

take me along for the ride.

set my Spirit free,
let me discern, dispell, decide.

thumbs are not my favorite things
to be Underneath;
‘strong woman’ is an oxymoron to men.
just as ‘grown man’ is to women,
you can end it there ~ or you can begin.

the birdies have taught me patience.
and oooh, so much about grace.
i took to them, as little pets,
maybe to dispel that young disgrace.

why is it there is a ‘balance of power,’
when there is no balance at all?
balance is what you do on a tightwire,
a decision, between meek, and bold.
balance is not a show-off.
balance is a thing you present.
the see-saw in your hips that keeps you moving,

mistress of feelings,
both felt and denied,
impetus of waves,
seas, oceans, and insides.
and maker of truth,
she dances and plays,
sweet Luna Moon.
not always appearing,
but never lost,
we set sail by her,
and return by thought.

to speak your Truth does not a challenge make.
it only emits the things you held inside, waiting to say.
for if it’s Fine, it can wait for its time to emerge.
and it’s okay if you’re the only One who knows the power of the Words.

Money gives you Place to maneuver,
but actions speak louder than words.
You can Lord over, or project to whenever,
but what is gambled is also what is splurged.
Just as words not spoken can try to be example,
some get it, follow suit - - and some do not.

seek not for time
that went before;
seek only it’s portal,
the new, opening door.
all that comes
holds evers and afters;
is forever captured.
and carry it forth;
change and meld
by each new source.
enough is best,
the present yields;

girls are like flowers,
they wrap petals around their dreams.
so pink, lovely, soft, moist,
they entice ~ come, see.
they direct their sweet pollen
to make their amoratta sigh.

the Universe is perfectly designed.
every facet, every refraction, is perfectly aligned.
interdependent and resplendent,
gleaming, steaming, alive, unrepentent,

uncontrived, the things that exist,
