True to Self

I am kind.
I am becoming
more kind with time.
I am succeeding.
I am the universe.
I am wisdom.
I am beautiful.
I am becoming  
more these  
things with time.
All these things
are my essence.  
Always staying  
true, to oneself.

Sci-Fi Meditation

i’m floating
 
in that space
 
between
being and
not
 
like the battle starship
in the black hole
beset on one side by Romulans
and on the other Darth Vader  
 
like captain James T. Kirk
alone in my quarters
 
trusting Spock and Wookie
to guide us
safely past the worm tunnels
and through the asteroid belts
 
knowing that Scottie will fix the warped drive
Luke and  Mr. Solo will procure whatever supplies we need
and keep the ladies satisfied
 
so i drift
peacefully
 
in that space
 
between
being and
not

unmeasured & incalculable

 
do not think to measure her worth
based solely on her topography
the length & breadth of her geography
such values mean little
or nothing
compared to her incomparable depths
think not to judge by her surface structure
it pales to a mere glimmer
next to the incandescent shimmer
burning within her
she radiates potential
exudes power & strength
give her room
and she'll remake worlds
with her personal fire
yours included
if you let her

but never let it be said
she is the weaker sex

Mantra

If this is my ego I want it to break
To see past myself, I need it to break
If this is the world I want it to break
To build something new we need it to break
If this is what life is I want it to break
We're not made for this, to live it must break
If this is sustaining us I want it to break
It poisons itself, we must make it break

New Records

Summery blankets of dough  
kneaded over plates of sinking storm  
scented in petrichor.  
The rising illuminating competence  
consummates tropical dreary.  
 
Eating clouds is a pasttime.  
The trees mellow.  
I was a green man  
with the face of a willow.  
The fall maple invokes me.  

I gush sap.  
Sappy, sweet story.
 
In the sun, I am happy.  
Feel me down.  
The summery blankets of dough  
taste better now.  
 
The storm sinks from the face to the gulf.  
In the late of the night,  
I am kin to the sun.

Spell on You

A chanteuse chanted her magic chanson
Ajji La Tara Tarajji Shazam,
enchanting enticing my candle relights,
conjuring her singing among dead neurons
sparking sparkling me alive to delight.
Abracadabra et Alakazam,

A shivering goes down from head to toe
bewitching me hexing me yearning to go
Ajji La Tara Tarajji Shazam,
Incanted me inside this great occult spell
all Oceans and Continents then vanishéd
and I was washed away upon this great swell
and I became right - outside of my head.
Abracadabra et Alakazam,

On her broomstick wee spirits set sail
up and around the moon we are as one
to our grandkids grandkids we will regale
how she wrought magic with her magic tounge.
Ajji La Tara Tarajji Shazam,

enchant

 
a love spell escapes my lips
one to empower us both
to build us up and enchant
 
I call the night to us and the winds
may we always be a pair
the ocean answers my call
bringing you safely to my shore
 
in the eternal storm
strife will come and it will go
it is part of the mortal ebb and flow
divining truth in the moment
your beauty is a major element to the quotient  
 
you seek honesty above all else
let this run through our hearts always
a dash of this and a hint of that
I am content with you in my heart
touching the immortal realm,  
our love keeps forever growing
 
I am your lovely lady
beholden to you in all I touch
I keep you in my mind's eye
holding you above all else

offering

great mother
of the sea
on your altar hear my prayers
sent on gentle gulf breeze
today loose your curl
grant growth to your swell
the final ride for too many
into Heaven or hell
I know you can’t be tamed
or swayed by only one
but today let us merge
before the last carvings done
offering half my grilled cheese
so you know that it’s me
laughing gulls greeting the sun
your blessing is all I need
