Shadow Puppet

No talk of: 

Silver linings


Darkest before the dawn


Singing in the rain 

or 

Dancing in the puddles


Today-

I pay homage to:

 Claustrophobic

Smothering

Grey

Dreary

Dark

Desolation


I don't need:

An intervention

A new drug

More time in meditation

A green smoothie

A TED talk 

To be:

Pathologized

Categorized

Analyzed 

Realized


I feel like:

Screaming

Pounding

Ranting 

Raving

Crying.. crying .. crying

And nobody

Especially me

Can be

Allowed

to 

Perpetuate

An undefined exile


The light:

Needs no introduction


Today:

I embrace 

and 

Welcome home

The unsung heroes

How long

You have suffered

in 

Silence.












Dare to Imagine


Forget speculation 
Regarding Angels on pinheads
How many miracles 
Do you suppose 
Occur each moment?

A kaleidoscope of grace
To a heart
That will avail itself
A portal to
And service of -

"The mystery"

Vibrancy: alive and well
Waiting
For you 
To come home
To yourself

Reflect to Renounce:
Regret
Remorse 
Resentment

Realize through restoration:
Release
Resuscitate
Resurrect
Remember
Refresh
Reconnect

Imagine
Angels dancing 
For you 
With you
Through you 
As you

Nothing begins without you

Necessarily Radical


The masculine house
Must no longer
Be allowed
To be exiled
Upon the rocks 
Of ill-repute

A sacred call
Has been issued
For the 
Coming of age
Of the Divine Masculine
Times are ripe 
For a potent
And collective change

World events 
Are providing
An ample crucible
For each, 
To invite 
A deep and lasting
Alchemy...

An immature masculinity
Has been allowed
To excessively propagate
With self-evident repercussions. 
"World leaders" are too self-interested
From the grass-roots
Those interested in the world - must lead.

God, King, Priest
Warrior, Lover, Sage
Ask not
Whether these exist in me?
Instead..
What is needed 
To fully develop them?
Now.....

Masculine energy
Must align
Mature & balance
Come into right relationship
With the Divine feminine
And 
With Life itself 

Ask not
How am I to:
Control (Life)
Dominate (Life)
Compete with (Life)
Manipulate (Life)
Run from (Life)

Lead the revolution
of 
Your Soul

This very day
Could be (personal) Armistice Day
Compassion
Understanding
Empathy
Respect
Protection 
Forgiveness
Love
Beginning with self.
Localized action,
With global impact.

There's Someone I'd Like you to Meet...



Have you 
Spent any appreciable time
At your mirror
Beyond the perfunctory  
Due diligence 
To ensure 
Ablutions 
are 
Carried out safely?

Look closer
Beyond the familiar
Do you presume
That 
Which you see,
Painted upon 
Your minds eye,
Is all that which 
Seeks your gaze?

Even if 
You are convinced
That all is known
Clear 
Predictable
Adequate
Safe
Can you
Be sure 
You've seen 
You're entirety?

Soften your stare
Look out (and in)
Beyond the edges
What lies in wait
In the misty
Suggestive
As yet unformed
But potent 
&
Powerful potentials

But 
Make no mistake.
This as yet,
Unformed strata,
Of qualities.
Belies, 
The untold story, 
That is you.
First look.
Believe, 
And 
You will, 
Begin to see.

I am, Listening


I need a sign!
What do you suppose 
That might look like?
How about 
One of those 
Burning bushes?
It's been done!
And was 
Situationally specific...
So 
Too much to ask then?
Not at all...
You are free to ask..
But will you listen?
What!!!! 
Do you mean
By that?
What are you,
Making it mean?
It implies 
I don't listen!!
Fascinating!
It was a question,
Intended 
To focus your attention,
On listening....
Not an assessment,
Of your listening....
Okay.. I'm listening
Consider then, 
What... 
Is the quality 
Of your listening?
My hearing is great!
What... 
Occurs with 
Your listening
When what you hear
Is contrary 
To what you believe
You want?
Well.. that depends
Fair enough..
But would you agree
Your relationship (willingness)
To 
What you are
Hearing
Varies 
According to your
"Approval" of 
That which 
You are hearing?
Well yes, but...
There is...
 No judgment 
So then...
"Signs"
If you accept 
As true
A loving universe...
Then consider 
There is 
A response
Each time 
You ask...
It is 
Personal and relevant 
And current
To you...
Do not 
Confuse scale,
With power
or 
Efficacy...
To do so 
Is an invitation 
To explore
Your own
Grandiosity...
So signs..
Are ever present...
Profound in design
There is 
As much likelihood
That in less,
There is more...
A subtle presentation
Contains
The immensity
Of sky-writing
Upon the horizon
To the one 
That pays attention
How divinely,
You, 
Are Listening...








I am, Beauty



A snow flake 
Exquisite & bold 
Possesses stalwart audacity
Inherent
 in it's unique design
Beautiful collectively
United
 To frost the landscape
While each 
Represents
An undeniable
Irrepressible & unmatched
Signatory splendor
For the duration
Of its existence
Being comprised
Of a love so pure
None will ever look
Outside itself
Nor question 
It's own beauty

I Am Wonder










Life's innumerable distractions
Left unaddressed
 Expands the ordinary
And render the miraculous
Invisible

Struck blind
While echoing
Resignation's theme
 Wonders dance
On a stage near you

Listen, the hum
of 
Cellophane wings
Crafted 
in a 
Weave of divine geometry

Seeds misunderstood
Comprise an orb
of feathery destiny
Mystery's abound
Carried on the wind

Walk softly
Appreciate slowly
Listen with your heart
See through a lens
of 
All is wonder
