ignite or Light? (day 337)

our world is
moaning the blues
whirling in diffused despair
swirling in confused contrarity
and Heat is
rising without and 
within in ways 
smouldering and surprising
will it converge
to ignite a fuse
or light a Wick?

Wisdom...please.

Amen.

between orbits #52 & 53

pain behind the eyes
and a Hopeful longing
in the heart
not a bad way
to start
a new day
a new week
a new year
of surprise
for no one
really knows
which way
the Wind blows
or where
the red fern grows
or how Destiny shows
itself except
for the unanticipated
Moments that arise
like wild flowers
in disguise
or spring showers
amidst the fireflies
of summer
or daylight in dungeons
i enter
this day
like any other
not knowing
where circumstances
will lead
or how interactions
will feed
connection or conniption
what friction
might spark
a new possibility
what diction
might blur
innate plausibility
misunderstanding
as understanding
while landing
upon Ground
familiar yet not
new words arise
out of old
new perspectives emerge
out of old
paradigms and parables
all this unbearable
lollygagging with language
whilst flagging my frontal
cortex to converge
into the surge
of first Light
straining to ignite
a Spark
of engaging
with my Heart
receive the fresh start
of embracing
the longing for Hope
and despairing
or not caring
which way the Wind
blows
or how the Rain
soothes 
and stings
both the skin
and the Spirit within
stirring that pain
and allowing it
to become a Gateway
to broader understanding
and fuller feeling
and deeper healing
of the longing and
pain behind the lies

EMDR (day 336)

eyes darting
back and forth
to and fro
disorienting
to reorient
disintegrating
to reintegrate
desensitizing
to resensitize
disconnecting
to reconnect
the paralyzed adult
with
the parentified child
into
a reanimated human
a reunified being
a reconciled Beloved

Night and Day (day 335)

those ancient astronomers
hopping on humps
dancing over dunes
in Divine darkness
necessary to navigate
the cosmological Canopy
the numinous Night
but what inspired
their insatiable imaginations
during the Day?
did stardust-turned-sand exfoliate
disillusionment and illuminate
the Light within?

Amen.

four Ships (day 334)

no donkey
or camel
but i'm
traveling to
my destination
with a
broader vision
of Stars
and space
at velocity
beyond reciprocity
but enabling
an embrace
of mortality
an expression
of friendship
a reunion
of fellowship
a celebration
of kinship

Thanks.

Amen.

Child (day 333)

we ruminate
despair and cope
help us, Child
and be our Hope

we wander through
these senseless days
help us, Child
to be Amazed

we stumble in
these darkest nights
help us, Child
to be the Light

this
Day

Amen.

Remember (day 332)

the older
i get
the more 
i forget
no wonder
this number
one blunder
is addressed by
the Thunder
to a nation
cast asunder
by amnesiac
lack of
memory
of identity
and Spirituality
Love compressed in
one commandment

Remember.

Amen.
