Love like Wind,

Allowing soft air to breathe.

Love like Fire,

Warmth to the bone but not burned.

Love like Water,

Quenching when parched, Flushing the toxins.

Love like Earth,

Anchored, grounded and eternally interwoven.

What about you? What are you reading/watching/listening to? How is it engaging or draining you?

 

All Love,

“I am not the first person you loved.
You are not the first person I looked at
with a mouthful of forevers. We
have both known loss like the sharp edges
of a knife. We have both lived with lips
more scar tissue than skin. Our love came
unannounced in the middle of the night.
Our love came when we’d given up
on asking love to come. I think
that has to be part
of its miracle.
This is how we heal.
I will kiss you like forgiveness. You
will hold me like I’m hope. Our arms
will bandage and we will press promises
between us like flowers in a book.
I will write sonnets to the salt of sweat
on your skin. I will write novels to the scar
of your nose. I will write a dictionary
of all the words I have used trying
to describe the way it feels to have finally,
finally found you.

And I will not be afraid
of your scars.

I know sometimes
it’s still hard to let me see you
in all your cracked perfection,
but please know:
whether it’s the days you burn
more brilliant than the sun
or the nights you collapse into my lap
your body broken into a thousand questions,
you are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
I will love you when you are a still day.
I will love you when you are a hurricane.”

Venus’ Invocation

The sun will shine again,

A new beginning in every end,

Cut the rope, reverent hushed,

Nothing worth having can ever be rushed,

Muddy footprints mark the path,

Intrinsically present, future and past,

Are your tables stable? Do your bridges burn?

Are the horses heroes and from where do you return?

Is the sun heavy, its beams an amulet in your throat?

Do you cut like a dagger weaving it’s way through silver smoke?

As you take an autumn inhalation of iridescent stars,

Crackling navy scarlet moonlit bonfires and guitars,

Trust in the timing of evolution,

May you bravely step to the left and enjoy the revolution.

 

 

Heroine’s Journey: Part 1

Swallowing you whole your lover devoured you and spat you out in pieces each new day

In recesses of depths you were convinced you had lost the way,

Your fingertips and lips

grasped at embers while casually speaking of abyss,

The falling star sinkhole that your faith became,

The opal moonlight obscures and illuminates

The wobbly cobblestone labyrinth

The languid last breath and rushed first kiss

The dusk of uncertainty

Dawn’s constant reliable profundity,

All wrapped in soft white leather,

Bound in belief of something ‘better’

Choirs of cascading notes cocoon

Seeds, Small feet, Planted, big shoes,

Lead and follow, same dance, branch to root

NaPoWriMo Day 13: Ghazal

Many nights I’ve wondered since the attack, why us?

A shoe is responsible for what we now lack, why us?

How could a shoe destroy our entire family, why us?

We feel like we’re lost at turbulent sea, why us?

We don’t even know the color of the shoe, why us?

There must be a reason for what shoes do, why us?

We were shocked to learn that we are the shoe, we are the star, why us?

Unlocked from stagnation, freed from bell jar, why us?
