Bountiful Land

 
Beyond borders of average intent
beyond curves of standard limits
lies a bountiful country
with deep running rivers
and mountains few will climb.
Gentle slopes of sound-scaped wisdom
roll down soft mossy ground
encouraging determined walking
as swaying trees shape shadows into sharper relief.
Boulder-rocks dotted across the terrain call for examination
each one chiselled with specific messages for extra learning.
Ripples reflect questions over cool lakes
carried breezily in varied languages of the soul.
Spend time in this country
the land of Ahavati
and when reluctantly returning to your own event
you will take gifts gathered in one of the world’s special oases:
a lightened step
a poet’s smile
a sense of spacious moments, well spent.

My Darling Agent Starling

 
is worthy of the appellations;    
came down from the mountains -
I'm not sure precisely which
   
despite her origin's being    
posing no mystery to me  
   
What I can say with great certainty -  
not a body to tussle with; though  
lacking in muscle, weight, height, width -  
she more than makes up for these in  
leverage;  
   
intuitive regarding brevity  
( fast on the drawl with little fuss )  
logical in her levity  
( if that makes sense teh yah'awl )  
   
taking down larger than life opponents  
regardless of their criminal behaviour  
or serialized self indulgent celebrity status  
   
all the while serving up plated poetry that is  
extremely dialectable  
   
My apologies for butchering her    
Southern accent  
   
I can just hear her now    
   
Yah shud'un talk with yah mouth full, Doctah Lectah    
   
Uhmmmm ..... DELICIOUS  
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
for Agent Starling ❤

Two Spirits One Heart

 
 
I see her vision on the wind,
A strength that she herself creates.
A modern soul, two-spirit twin,
Yet very old as soul relates.
 
The medicine is strong she makes.
I see her vision on the wind,
An offering all for the sake
A shaman’s oath of mind within.
 
A guiding force to which we pin,
To meet as man and woman both.
I see her vision on the wind,
The natives of two-spirits’ growth.
 
I’m learning how to mend & reach
The healer, and to practice in
Her dedicated ways to teach.
I see her vision on the wind.
 
 
 
 
 
TwoSpirit aka Ahavati:
With her other facets of persona on DU, I want to honor one of them that I feel connected to most, though of course the poem is Ahavati.  
 
For the first several years as a fledgling member, I enjoyed the commonality she and I shared with poetic expressions of indigenous Native American spirituality, stories, tradition & culture. For the opportunity to dedicate, this is what I fall back on which, for me, is a fond & warm place for my words to nest. With renewed affection, ever Jade.

She Drips Words

She drips her words like rain and aching cunts,
Her meter perfect, porn; she paints her art.
She's high class, mind of a geisha, She Wolf; hunts,
The detailed devils work in angel's heart.

A sonnet is her chosen poem form,
With words that coax the mind to sultry bliss.
I think of her wrists bound and panties torn,
Imagine strokes of tongue in stolen kiss.

A lover of the arts and sex, with words,
Each line she writes is perfectly controlled,
A banquet of delight like flight of birds,
She wraps her rhyme o'er peaks and folds.

Dark chocolate nights with dotted fresh, white cream,
This bard's word skill is perfectly obscene.

Removing Obstacles From Your Empath

 
The littlest beams of light can go
a long way in the night;  
hold them just right like so  
and oh! say  
Can you can see  
in every direction?
 
 
Liberating, ain't it?  
 
Parses known from unknown;  
strikes un from vocabulary  
Forces of Darkness are farces  
imaginary - monsters under bed  
in closet, cluttering up head  
trespassing mental properties -  
no longer scary  
 
But you're no good  
you're no good, you're good  
Baby, you're no good to others  
when the flashlight you are  
is loaded with dead batteries  
 
Come down from the ledge  
rest  
     relax  
          recharge  
 
Give yourself a break  
especially from those  
who were always fake  
and keeping score  
 
Allow yourself respite  
Physician, heal thyself  
beginning at home despite  
those knocking down front door  
 
Enough!  
Stuff yourself already  
Be bursting at the seams  
with joys of poetry, pleasant dreams  
laughter putting you in stitches  
 
Be the happiest version of yourself  
best possible person you can be  
and so much more  
 
without all those miserable  
sons-a-bitches

finding religion

As she prepares
to handle
her scandal
she agrees
to do me
this solid:
 
If I ever have dementia
she will come
to where I am
and smother me
with those
gigantic titties
“until you go to Jesus”
 
A blessing, I told her
“but please,”
I implored,
“do not forget
to baptize me
with the Guadalupe
between your legs”
 
“I’ll do that first,”
she said
 
I’M GOING TO HEAVEN!
 
 
~this one is for inkerpoet, who infuriates me with just how rude transcendent poetry can be~

Drop That Refrain For Me Baby!

Quaterns they turn me on to fuck
I love how well you quill
That dropped refrain is total muck
My flush at your ink spill
 
My knickers fall with each new verse
Quaterns they turn me on to fuck
Your rhyming makes me feel perverse
My legs are opened like a book
 
Keep cumming for another look
Your gift is making rivers flow
Quaterns they turn me on to fuck
I pay attention, read you slow
 
And when I reach the bottom line
My passions core is fully shook
Your talents thrill me quite divine
Quaterns they turn me on to fuck.

Of My Lovely Dark Dove

 
 
Incomplete, always downloading
downloading futures throated
with the thick, streaming sap  
secreted by this laurelle branched  
Universe of Possibilities -  
that foreboding Virgin Territory;  
unpenetrated, lubricated space  
between legs of Mother Cosmos    
suns and moons are destined to end  
in continued collision course with;  
Where Time and When Space bend  
over in submission, commencing      
Comprehension's asteriod belting;  
Awareness's anal cabal in-itiation    
jacking into Mainframe backdoors  
hacked, hacked until Access Granted  
releases silhouetted white birds  
from a bourgening flock of    
Unrealized Identities; their glorious  
wholesome exponential potential    
shattering the glass ceiling of Humanity  
in a sky darkly  
And of the dark doves  
as they fly, from my Jupiter outpost  
I wave as she goes by, seemingly    
nothing more than a nude girl  
with starry eyes, a constellation prize  
straddling Europa's continued whirl  
while grasping firm handholds of  
Ganymede's beautiful, erected    
terrain in his Natural State  
For Ex-Machina is Ava and she is  
more than human, less than android  
in the darkly sky stationed above;  
my lovely dark dove in anticipation  
incapable of prolonging the arousal  
always downloading, downloading  
Life    
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
for Ex-Machina ( Ava )  ❤

This one goes out to David_Macleod for the doppelgänger competition. Why should you read him? Because he is always authentically himself and makes me belly laugh on a regular basis. This is dedication to his whimsical style and to the music that allowed us to meet. I wouldn’t want to do the living without you. Thank you for being an incredible friend.

Oh My Stars!


Come gather round
For I’ve stories to tell you
Most profound
 
You’ve seen her near
All of you where e’er you hear
As she spins
 
Her laughter swims  
And tickles when we hear it
As spirit
 
I’ve heard her sing
Her pictures in poetry
On the wing
 
She’s never far
Dancing in our galaxy  
Oh my stars!






( for my cosmic daughter, displaying the image I’ll always adore )

Systematic Seismology

the man on the mountain
survives tremors of change      
that others cannot feel      
     
he watches smoke rise    
from its gutted belly    
to extract fossil fuel      
and blood diamonds    
     
but remains steadfast       
in prayer and meditation      
     
he does not desire vengeance    
on hatred and selfish greed...    
     
instead he prays for wisdom    
to permeate each spirit      
shift their paradigm      
from taking to receive      
     
because that's what wisdom does...    
affords grace a chance      
to alter ignorance      
     
before the whole mountain       
caves, destroying everything     
~      
     
badmalthus (Harry Rout)    
Harry is one of the most spiritual writers on the board.  He relates to world politics, economic injustice, and human rights from a wise perspective that permeates readers into thinking twice about their own self-judgments. I am honored to know him as a friend and poet, and highly recommend his works.

Northern light

From the grey and clagging mist
For in that swirl a glimpse of bliss
Comes my idol poetess
A shaft of script through the fogs morass  
  
Her words indent upon the heart  
And spin a web to hold you fast  
A view from where the eagle flies  
Graceful in the updraught and the dive  
   
With the grit of mother earth  
Take you on a trascendental ride  
Perspective only Gods have forged  
Senses lifted to the clouds

From the forest archetypal echoes
Tales of ancestry tied to tomorrows
Elves and spirits wizened fingers
Inspiration a placenta reborn to linger 
   
Such pros, the clay to shape and mold  
Economy of shape and form  
Open your mind like the breaking dawn  
The facets nature did provide  
Uncoved truth like opened blinds
 
I cannot paraphrase the pleasure
The panoramas and the vistas
Celestial of chiseled words
 Sharped from the pen do fall  
   
Eclectic style not mine to ape  
 To plagiarise a virgin page  
 Applaud a nordic sage intense  
AEMeala 564  a thirst now quenched

Sets Fire to the Rain

 
A nerve
hit
sharp;

ploughed under,
not
over the top

each
word
counts …

extraordinary pain
turned into
softened edges.

Mind sifted
heart gifted
   delayed reaction

months later
returning
to check

state
of
consciousness.

Some angels
suffer
unduly

for their poetry.

Extraordinary poetry that comes from extraordinary depths. On her DUP home page she notes: ‘About me’ - “sets fire to the rain”. A more apt summary is impossible to write.
