Blow and Grow

Hold your brew steady Until it is ready Give yourself thyme to grow So your mind can reach your toe Gently blow a wind, over your steaming cup So one day you can tell bottom from up!

Spirit Reader

Did you read the spirits of others Who know not to keep secret covers Looking deep into their souls You gather up life from the darkest of holes Twist up their bellies as they shriek in fear You hollow them out... Continue Reading →

Remember

Do you remember the first time you got a watch? Shiney, new, and all yours to own. Do you remember how it stole your heart? Running away in a stone ridden cart Dividing it up into six equal pieces. And... Continue Reading →

Miju

Could I be mi Without ju? Without your questions Would I ever have answers? Without your gaze or longing look Would I just be a blank empty book? What would I be without you here? Would I fade into the deep regret... Continue Reading →

Remember

When I see a new face From far away I am reminded of tales From yesterday Of how I was once a slave in chains Or riding a horse free and wild before highway lanes Or perhaps a pirate or... Continue Reading →

Emotional Colour

Hiding your feelings behind a lense Where your mind begins and ends In the middle of your scull You become square and dull Never even knowing what you truly feel Instead a rational of the cards you deal Never feeling from deep roots... Continue Reading →

Egg-o-testicle

They separated us by Turning us against one and other By denying our wants and wishes to fit see Denying our spirit to ride free As the horses we once rode on, bareback With bow and arrow in hand We... Continue Reading →

Top of the hill

When you talk of light Without the dark When you talk of good Without the bad When you talk of joy Without fear When you talk of day Without the night You are only living At the top of the... Continue Reading →

Spirit thieves

Take care with whom you share a meal For they very well might spirit steal Away in the night With your spirit in flight Take care with whom you sit by For they may your spirit away fly Take care with... Continue Reading →

The spirit bringer

I know you. You long to carry the remains of my dead. You lack the parts I carry in my heart and head. It is my excess which you lack. As you haul your empty burdensome sack. You are incomplete, a... Continue Reading →

Automaton

The pulse resides in the triangle Of the soles' arch angle With a steady beat In both cool and stifling heat The blood of fi phi fo Going far down below Rising up through the centre Unlike a tarty dolled up pretender... Continue Reading →

Death

Death is near or is she far Sitting waiting upon a star Watching you as you go about Crying and whining with a pout Or when you sit between here and nowhere And wondering if you are somewhere With her... Continue Reading →

Ol’ friends

Ol' friends of long ago Creep into my life with new faces in tow In hope perhaps you could be new friends But then alas, you all got the bends Turning quickly into foe Just as the wind did blow Like my... Continue Reading →

Woman’s voice

The woman's voice is locked up in the academic circle Within the humanities and arts like a tightly woven girdle What about the sciences of chemistry, mathematics and physics Where men still rules the literature of the ages As I flick... Continue Reading →

Lost for words

Words do not come When breath stops Then the mind ceases Stomach knots Fists clench The birth of the Neanderthal man He is lost without words And knows only violence But she knows, medicine woman knows Steady in breath Blades... Continue Reading →

Duty

Home was a place of duty Love lived in the loin and belly War raged and was put into children Souls were crushed Voices silenced Hearts robbed And I know it began a long time ago When her temple was... Continue Reading →

Tick tock

There is a clock inside my head When I close my eyes and lay in bed Like a fob watch it goes tick tock As steady as a charged quartz rock Crystal clear is the beat As I feel the... Continue Reading →

Listen

listen to the sound that blows from over the mound listen to the song about all that is wrong listen to the tale told in moan and wail listen to the rain washing away all the pain

The Lost Soul, the Wolf and the Ghost

Who do you see when you look at a reflection? What do you know when you search for your heart? What do you feel when you walk the earth? Is your soul dark and full of hunger? Are your thoughts full of rage? Are... Continue Reading →

Free Flowers

For you I danced and darkness romanced In the early hours we did tumble while the roots did rumble But too long on my toes falling on my nose My flower torn, broken and forlorn From mother dear I Iearnt... Continue Reading →

Snowrose

Unsatisfied Lacking Never enough Forever wanting Always reaching Never giving without taking Never offering without grabbing Never granting without demanding Never building without destroying She who rises from the Earth The snake lady Kundalini Rising out of the Earth With... Continue Reading →

Tension
