mystical one

the cold of winter
never touches her heart

an internal fervor
is always ablaze
melting
a passage for her way

she ascends
to spaces that
only spirits find
her colors
pay homage to those left behind

mystical bird
ne’er weighed down by her past
mystical

this…… a place

this
a place
of rest
a place
to undress
your thoughts
your worries
your concerns

this
a place
where fears
frustrations & failures
are shattered
a place
of friendship
of companionship

this
a place

intentional breath

her message was camouflaged
in the colorful leaves
her lessons were learned
from the language
of the trees
she spoke clearly
to those who believed

breathe

with intention
set your target
set your goal

breathe

with intention
when feeling frightened
when feeling alone

breathe

feeding off
the berries
of trust
she found
a new lust
for life

the peacock’s gift

(for Dan)

she revealed herself
with words of wisdom
spreading joy
and knowledge

exposing self
to the universe
liberating her soul
to fly freely
amongst
those bound by restrictions
bringing harmonic peace
painting their spirits
to reflect upon
passing along courage & strength

she doesn’t sleep Monday nights
claims Tuesday she has
chores to be done
that was when she was 31
many
many moons ago
every Tuesday
or was it Thursday
sheets & towels
dust & vac
clean out the frig
there’s always
something smelling
