Prayer

I don’t want your money

or jewels

or wind in my sails

I won’t ask for the moon

or the stars

or shelter from either

I just want to pray

together

for the sake of prayer

we don’t have to agree on words

or say anything at all

or supplicate the same deities

or supplicate anything at all

I just want to pray…

Looking down at us

Eagle turned to fly away

For him that is prayer

How Many Times Can You Steal The Same Land?

How many times can you steal the same land?

Move our people from their homes and use our names for your brands?

What is our  return on “your” investment? Money in your pockets and sickness in our hearts?

What is our  return on “your” investment? Money in your pockets and poison in our lakes?

What is our  return on “your” investment? Money in your pockets and cancer in our blood?

What is our return on “your” investment? Money in your pockets and massive toxic waste?

The stakes

are just

too high.

How many times can you steal the same land?

Move our people from their homes and use our names for your brands?

Your bullshit isn’t selling, and we aren’t buying.

 

 

 

Sparing

Be sparing with your offering..

don’t cast pearls before swine…

Imagine a pig in pearls, sloshing in the mud completely unaware how long it took for that oyster to manifest just one bead?

I have cast plenty of pearls… One bead at a time… scattered them before those unaware of the magic they possess…

Once I have picked them all back up I’ll string them together again.

Blessing

Accept The Beauty

That arises with freedom

The blessing is yours

 

Awakening

Awakening to the freshness

I come in fully and with heart open

to this new day

giving giving giving to myself now…

this is good…

 

FreeFlow

And we begin in a whole new way

Nothing will be gained from squeezing tired fruit

Allow the leaves to fall, the bark to flake and the roots to quietly continue to grow into earth

Everything is different every moment

That is the beauty of universal flow
Ah Ho

 

Did I just take a challenge to write a poem every hour for 24 hours?

Wow. What was I thinking!?

I do so well with a good challenge, and a challenge to write 24 poems in 24 hours takes up a lot less time than say… committing to a NaNoWriMo challenge, which takes a month of insanity…

Tried that, and got about 25K words in and am still working on that one a few years later.

I write Haiku. Not always, or exclusively, but it will help for swiftness of poetic agility.

But I love this idea and I am going to set an alarm for every hour and go! Let’s see what happens!

Ready Set GO!
