Cherry Stained

I once bled
for two weeks straight,    
felt the blood spill    
over my fingers    
    
cleaned    
and cleaned    
until there was no    
red left    
     
as I questioned    
the white-lie    
of porcelain,    
banishing    
handprints    
to the drain.    
     
You don’t see them,    
but they’re there—    
     
the price of exclaiming      
my starlit orgasms,    
where they    
ripped me in two    
to leave behind      
a writhing creation    
     
foetal,    
and unattached—    
[oh, you pretty murderess]  

a pith of head throws    
plucking mounds    
of ripe sisterhood  
     
hoarding my stones    
in wombs.

I’ll admit I went off on a total fkn tangent... I think it was the white dress.

Milky way

Elevation that to celestial heights  
To where no rocket or vapor trail
Spoils of failed attempts that orbit blight
Space debris left over nuts and bolts all weightless sail
 
Our vain attempt to seek solace
Step beyond the false wing and feathers  
Tread the atmosphere that blackest place
To hear the orchestra the strings pitched grace
 
Ice a nymph to raise her bow  
Suns ions pepper and colours show
All to move like kalidescope mirrors that  endowed
To walk with Gods on that high cloud

The Pied Piper of Light


Come with me,
to the end—

in spirals
in swirls
in light—

it goes ‘round, eddies;
and ‘round, we go
to where time runs out.

I shall serenade thee,
with sweetness, on
bows and strings—

a swan song
and epitaph
as we say goodbye
and sink between veils
of living water.

I take over
where the band leaves off, and
one White Star Liner slips
to titanic depths—

Arise!
And Rejoice!
Come out of the waters
of baptism
and follow me home
on auroras, ocean-hued, for
souls never perish, just
become—

light
and song.

Hear her on the mirror

___________________________________________________________________________________


 
 
 
Listen to me play my fiddle  
Watch how fast my fingers twiddle  
I’m a cute blonde signora    
On a pond of Aurora  
Or is it a puddle of piddle?  
   
   
   
You make my heart soar to new heights  
As you dance on the Northern Lights  
But maybe you shouldn't oughta    
Stand on reflective water  
If you are not wearing tights

I created my universe
harmonious melody
bleeding love and colors
bittersweet shades
and pools of night

I touched my universe
feet bare on the looking glass
an endless ocean of stars
of futures and pasts
whorls of art
painted by the strings
caressed by my song

and the song was pure
the song was true
I molded my world
a universe so good

so will you come
and join me too?
share in this love
walk on its stars
taste the magenta
lingering in the air
and hear my song
tended in sweet care

in this world
you will always belong

A Lunar Serenade

On our cosmic voyage
Exploring the Sea of Tranquility
We star travelers three
Heard music exotic and serene

But this sweet concerto
Played in beautiful harmony
Was an inexplicable melody
Originating somewhere in infinity

Whether alien or angel,
O musician, whom ever you might be
Thank for being welcomed and received
With a hymn so heavenly

Fiddlin’ Perspectives

 
It’s all about perspective  
when You see the product of Love:  
hues dancing and attuned
influenced by the Faerie Fiddling  
atop of the earth  
Aurora Australis isn’t below  
just because  
She is the Dawn of the South!  
 
Flip Gaia’s realm 180 degrees over  
& now does not Aurora Borealis,  
the Dawn of the North, playing her  
song producing love and light,  
still remain on top of the world!  
 
The peek frequency of love  
the peek vibration of light  
about every eleven years  
the Fiddlers  play a rainbow of  
colors dancing in the moonlight  
producing a beautiful sight  
for all to marvel and bask  
with delight.  
 
They play to help heal the earth  
so Gaia’s keep might  
live and survive.
