these hands

Our hands come from our mothers and grandmothers.Whether worn or soft,They speak of the lives they were granted and the rights that they fought for.The creases in our skin tell stories in fading lines,Hands reaching out in offering,Pulling closer to hold, protect.And as we walk in our lives,Our backs, shoulders, are warmed by gentle, sturdy...

endless bond

As my grandmother continues to transition from form to not,I feel inducted into the perspective of interconnection.Somehow, as I write and remember her,So many beautiful faces surface in mind of living human family.My mother said when her mother died that she became an orphan.But can one ever truly be motherless?We have all traveled here by...

Poetry of Shifting Shapes

What will it take to claim your life?To remember that right now,You are still alive.Still breathing.And what will finally allow you to give it all away?For new visions only ever birth from emptiness.And what, dear love, are you taking for granted right now?Recognize it soon, send it sweet prayers,For like everything, it will one day...

Teachings of Rhythm

Inspired while dancing the 5Rhythms, teaching us how to show up fully in this time.... When you crawl deeper into the chaos, You feel nauseous. An impulse to throw up - toss away, this overwhelming uncertainty. But like any storm, Impact will be minimized with relaxation. Turning into a rag doll that is shaped by... Continue Reading →

How are you?

How are you? Right now, slippered feet resting upon leather cushion, Typing, typing my mind into understanding. Ocean waves gather, tide pulls in, pulls out. Sun still flickers close to 7 at night. Birds are out, singing to one another, or are they singing to us? Telling us of a natural order that is still... Continue Reading →

Palms facing towards sky reach out, Trying to cradle so tenderly all of the passing moments. But all keeps cascading through and through. Even if I tried to hold on tighter, None can be kept, like sand that scatters, never still. Was there ever anything to hold on to? Somehow my heart opens wider and... Continue Reading →

Golden Fog

Sunlight dressed in mercury golden fog, Thirsty for pets, these dogs, these dogs. All this potential, unlimited time. Eager to see darkness finally shine. Remembering, remembering where credit is due, I'm not these words, I'm just the dew. Feed my soul, whisper me whole, Write my song, as I bow to this role. I'm a... Continue Reading →

They Die, They Return.

The walls still smell like you. No matter how much the room has changed, I still see the hospital bed there with you lying in it. You didn't want to die, I know. Was it for us? Did you give your life away for our transformation? You feel far yet close. How can I find... Continue Reading →

Simply.

As my days fill fuller with places to get to and leave from, I feel tightening in my chest, Shallow breath. Mind calculating next moves, on time, expectations. Body fades into background. Is this how I'll have to live as I deepen into commitment, life work, The path of my young heart becoming? How do... Continue Reading →
